Gene expression is the most fundamental process by which a genotype gives rise to the phenotype. Information that travels from the genes is then used to create fundamental products (such as hormones) which the brain then acts on. This translates as a person’s behaviour, and irregularities in gene expression can cause cognitive problems such as anxiety, memory loss, sleeplessness and depression – to name a few. Marion Schumacher, content manager at Vitafoods, speaks to Dan Gubler, scientific advisor at Phenolaeis, about identifying natural substances that support healthy gene expression for optimal coginitive health. We look into researched ingredients that improve current formulations, which have the potential to boost the next generation of nootropic products.
