Today’s Consumers Seek Solutions for Cognition
Our team of experts conducted research on how consumers are seeking better solutions to improve cognitive health.
Mental health solutions are of increasing importance to consumers. Our latest Cognition Infographic (PDF) features various claims and research statistics supporting how consumers are seeking holistic wellness solutions that address both mind and body, for mental well-being; including:
- Cognitive Performance
- Mental Energy
Targeted Solutions that Support Cognition
Consumers have a variety of approaches when it comes to cognitive health including exercise and diet. More than half of consumers report drinking beverages or eating foods with added nutrients to get cognitive benefits.1
20% of new products were beverages and dairy products with cognition claims.
Maintaining good “brain nutrition” is essential across the lifespan.
Across the Lifespan, the General Population Prefer Cognition Claims
Although many cognition support claims are above average in preference across age groups, claims that are focused on mental well-being and relaxation pop among those aged 18-34, while improving mental clarity and memory claims resonate more among consumers 35+.3
There is a significant need for new and improved product offerings. Ingredients with low awareness offer promise for breakthrough solutions. The Disrupted Consumer is looking for brain health support, solutions for stress, and ways to improve focus and alertness.
Innovation has been lacking, despite significant consumer demand.
