ReMind™ Scientific Evidence
Scientific research on the ageing brain
Over two decades of scientific research has led to the development of ReMind™ (known as Memory Health in the US). This unique food supplement reflects the very latest scientific understanding of brain nutrition and was most recently used in the innovative, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Re-MIND clinical trial at Nutrition Research Centre Ireland (NRCI), South East Technological University (SETU). This clinical trial was published in The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and was recognised as providing strong clinical evidence for the key role of nutritional supplementation in the management of Alzheimer’s disease.
Positive effects on brain function
The relationship between targeted nutrition and brain health is now well established, and even more important than ever because of our growing and ageing population.
ReMind™ contains protective active ingredients that are naturally found in the brain, but which decrease with age and disease. This unique formulation of carotenoids, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E has been proven to support normal brain function in healthy individuals, those with Mild Cognitive Impairment and patients with Alzheimer’s disease*. The results were published in the scientific Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease* as a breakthrough for long-term brain function.
Peer-reviewed and published evidence of effectiveness
The research studies that led to the development and testing of ReMind™ have been peer-reviewed by leading independent researchers in the field and have been published in esteemed titles such as the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease and Nutrition.

Unique patented formula
The ReMind™ formula has received treatment patents from the United States, United Kingdom, and Ireland specifically for its role as an effective tool for improving and protecting brain function.
*DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet.
The ingredients – Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin are powerful plant based nutrients called carotenoids. They can be found in leafy greens like spinach, kale and broccoli. Our carotenoids are harvested using a patented process from organic marigold flower petals called Tagetes Erectes.
Science has confirmed that these specific carotenoids naturally gather in both our eyes and our brain from the day we are born.
The nutritional quality of our food has declined thanks to over-farming and climate change. What this means is that even with the healthiest of diets we don’t get enough of these key nutrients in the quantities we need.
Omega-3s are known as essential fats, meaning our bodies can’t produce them and we must get them through our diet. Foods high in omega-3 include cold water fish like salmon. DHA omega-3s are vital nutrients for maintaining healthy brain function and have been linked to healthy aging throughout life2.
Natural Vitamin E
D-Alpha Tocopherol, also known as Natural Vitamin E, is an antioxidant used by ReMind™ to slow down oxidation of the raw material, thus maintaining the integrity and bioavailability of the product. Vitamin E is a vital nutrient for helps protect the cells from oxidative stress.
The ReMind™ formula provides 15mg of natural Vitamin E (D-Alpha Tocopherol), which delivers 125% of the 12mg nutrient reference value recommended by the European Food Standards Authority.
Gelatine Capsule (Gelatine, Glycerine, Purified Water, Annatto)
Gelatine – This food grade gelatine is used as the softgel casing for the manufacturing of the supplement.
Annatto – This natural red plant extract is used to create the red colour of the capsule. Annatto comes from achiote shrub seeds and is mainly used as a natural food colouring. Produced in South America, achiote seeds have been used by tribes for centuries for many culinary and medical traditions.
100% All-Natural Beeswax allows the ReMind™ formula to keep the appropriate homogeneity (uniformity).
Lemon Flavour Oil
Natural lemon flavour gives a pleasant taste to the supplement.
SUPPLEMENT CERTIFIED – A SYMBOL OF TRUST
Our supplements are independently certified by the Supplement Certified testing programme. Each new batch is rigorously tested and certified to meet all of our label claims. This means you are guaranteed to get the exact quantity of active nutrients promised on our label.
Equally, it certifies the quality and shelf-life stability of our supplements. So the capsule you take on day one or in three years’ time will deliver the same brain nourishing nutrients and will not degrade or break down over time.
