As we age, we experience cognitive decline. This is a normal, inevitable part of our lives. However, memory loss is not entirely unavoidable. Our lifestyle, eating habits, and daily activities greatly impact the health of our brain.

What are some of the newest ingredients to improve brain health? 

Tangut USA’s Memory Fortifier contains an innovative blend of the top three natural ingredients for brain health. The product was featured in Vitamin Retailer’s October 2013 issue for its unique blend of Cistanche, Ginkgo and Goji.

Current products on the market focus mainly on ingredients that are beneficial for short-term memory such as Ginkgo. Memory Fortifier, on the other hand, also contains Cistanche and Goji. These ingredients have been shown to provide long-term benefits for memory and act as excellent brain food. As result, the product is a more complete and balanced formula for memory and brain health. 

Have a great memory! :)

The following graphic provided by SPINS data shows the increase in the “organic” category. More and more consumers are aware of the USDA seal and look for labels on the products they buy. What does USDA stand for?

While salmon in the seas across the world breathe a salty sigh of relief, chia plants quake in fear. Plant-based omega-3 production value is forecasted to grow twice as quickly as marine omega-3s during the next five years, according to a new analysis. The report, noted on naturalproductsinsider.com, was published by research company Amadee+Company.

Omega-3 products are worth more than $4.5 billion at the producer level and almost $32 billion in retail sales, according to the report. The company forecasts omega-3 production to grow more than 15 percent annually from 2013 to 2018.

Consumers are moving away from animal-based products and toward plant products that contain omega 3s, like flaxseed and chia seeds. The chia market remains small, but “continues to grow rapidly” though the crop will likely be scarce for the next three years as growers learn more of the crop. Apparently, knowledge gleaned during the 1970s about how to grow the plants into Scooby Doo and Jimmy Carter shapes is not terribly helpful.

Omega-3 fatty acids are thought to promote heart health, improve prenatal health, reduce inflammation, cognitive aging and developmental disorders. The most widely available marine sources of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) include cold water, oily fish, krill and algae.

The article concludes: “With the growing bevy of clinical support, omega-3 ingredients are holding steady as key players in the functional food marketplace.”

Better Nutrition Magazine chooses Tangut Sea Berry Essence as “Sea Buckthorn Supplement We Like” - Congratulations! The 75th anniversary issue of the health and natural living focused publication highlights 75 super supplements. One of them: Tangut USA Sea Berry Essence.

Sea Berry, also know as Sea Buckthorn or Hippophae, is one of the nutrient richest and most abundant fruits in the world. The tiny berries offer over 190 nutrients and promote numerous health benefits such as healthy skin, cardiovascular support, immunity and energy boost. 

Better Nutrition Magazine highlights Sea Buckthorn as one of 75 Super Supplements that they chose for their 75th anniversary issue. 

Tangut USA Sea Berries are shown on page 46 of the current August 2013 issue, grown and harvested in the Tibetan Plateau.

Sales in the organic category are growing rapidly, the natural product industry sees a consistent growth over the past years. Yet-  many consumers are still confused about the USDA label. The word “organic” is mistakenly confused with “natural” as many consumers still think that “natural” requires a third party certification - others are even skeptical of the meaning of both terms according to information from natural product retailers. 

Forbes highlights the results of a survey conducted by NMI (Natural Marketing Institute) in a recent article, which revealed that only 33 percent of the general population recognize and understand the USDA Organic seal. 

In general the USDA Organic seal stands for the quality and integrity of organic products. It is short for United States Department of Agriculture( USDA) and assures the consumer that the food has been produced and/or grown through approved methods. This is meant to prevent synthetic fertilizers or genetically engineered food, which could cause health problems to the consumer.

There are organic products that are safe and clean without the USDA label. However, the label assures the consumer that this product has been approved under stringent quality standards. 

The best method to personally approve the quality of products can be to find out more about the source and the origin of ingredients. A company’s transparency about the source of their products can create trust and credibility for their consumers.
