Neumentix™ - A Supplement Ingredient for Cognitive Support

Life moves at a fast pace. Throughout the day, we're balancing mental to-do lists of work projects, weekend plans and personal goals. At times, this information becomes too much to manage and brings our brains - and productivity - to a grinding halt. Many of us turn to caffienated drinks to push through these brain blocks, but end up crashing later in the day. You need a healthy, lasting solution to keep you focused and productive all day long.

Neumentix is a naturally-sourced spearmint extract supplement ingredient that supports focus and productivity during the day without disrupting sleep at night. It specifically targets working memory to improve our ability to focus and manage information. Neumentix is formulated into supplements for focus, concentration and productivity. Formulations with Neumentix:

  • Improve cognitive function by supporting working memory4
  • Promote more productive days and more restful sleep4
  • Help you stay focused on tasks and maintain sustained attention4

How Neumentix Works:

What is working memory?

Working memory is part of short-term memory that allows you to store and manipulate information while working on another task. It is controlled by the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus. Working memory supports cognitive abilities such as sustained attention, focus and concentration. There's also evidence to show working memory supports physical performance, such as movement and reaction time.6

Research suggests working memory can naturally decline about 10% per decade - starting as early as our 20s.

How does Neumentix's Phenolic Complex help working memory?

Neumentix's Phenolic Complex - a unique combination of polyphenols from our spearmint - has been clinically tested and shown to naturally support working memory in adults.3 These polyphenols act as antioxidants in the brain to increase neurotransmitter levels, protect neurons and promote neural growth.4 

This Phenolic Complex contains more than 50 phenolic compounds, including Rosmarinic Acid, Salvianolic Acid, Lithospermic Acid and Caftaric Acid.

We use a gentle water extration process and innovative drying technology to preserve the native profile of the powerful Phenolic Complex. Careful processing and a controlled supply chain allows us to consistently provide a high-quality, safe and efficacious cognitive health ingredient.

Sustainable spearmint production

The advanced, patent-pending lines of spearmint used to produce Neumentix (KI110 and KI42) are sustainably grown in the United States. Click here to learn more about one of the only spearmint crops to earn the Sustainably Grown stamp of approval by SCS Global.

 

Clinically studied to support cognition

Improved working memory performance

In a 90-day randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled (RDBPC) study, people who took Neumentix showed better quality of working memory compared to subjects who took a placebo.Those who supplemented with Neumentix showed 15% improvement in quality of working memory performance, compared to placebo. Subjects also showed 9% improvement in spatial working memory compared to placebo.

Those supplementing with Neumentix also experienced significant improvements in falling asleep easier and faster at night compared to subjects who took a placebo.

Neumentix: A safe supplement ingredient for productivity

Neumentix has been shown to be safe in animal toxicity and genotoxicity studies.3 In all human clinical trials, Neumentix has been shown to be well tolerated with no adverse side effects related to the study product.1,4

Kemin's commitment to research

To date, Kemin has invested $1.5 million into Neumentix research and we continue to invest in an ongoing research program, which includes discovery and hypothesis-driven research.  In addition to human clinical trials, Kemin’s Neumentix research program includes in vitro and in vivo studies targeting mechanism of action, brain health, cognition and behavioral outcomes. Our discovery program allows us to explore novel outcomes or new market segments, while our hypothesis-driven research program includes both small- and large-scale trials to elucidate and confirm efficacy, safety and mechanisms of action.

1The Kemin Foods, L.C. definition of a “natural” ingredient is an ingredient with the identical molecular structure and characteristics as found in nature. The ingredient is derived solely from a plant, animal or mined sources, either in an unprocessed state or having been subject to moderate processing (physical processing, heating processing, purification, hydrolysis, extraction, drying). The ingredient does not contain any additives, except in amounts that might occur unavoidably during good manufacturing practices or good farming practices as applicable.

3RDBPC three month study [Fonseca, B., et al. (2015). Neurology. Conference: 67th American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting, AAN, 84.] evaluated healthy men and women between the ages of 50 to 70 with age-associated memory impairment. The study showed significant differences between active and placebo groups on improvements in working memory and ease of falling asleep. Claims based on 900 mg Neumentix containing 14.5% - 17.5% Rosmarinic Acid and 24.0 - 32.0% Phenolics (expressed as gallic acid equivalents) taken once daily for 12 weeks.
