The next generation brain nutrition
As information technology eases the way we connect with each other, similarly there are major advancements in nutrition that optimize neural connections and brain development in children. Strengthening the commitment of Abbott Nutrition International (ANI) to turn science into caring, a continuing medical education (CME) among doctors nationwide was organized around the Next Generation Eye-Q Nutrition System.
According to the lecture’s guest speaker, Dr. Francisco J. Rosales, Doctor of Science Degree in International Health and Human Nutrition, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, “the focus should not only be in finding the latest beneficial ingredient. Perhaps more importantly, the proper combination and relative proportions of these nutrients will help ensure that a child achieves the optimum brain development that he or she deserves. This is precisely our end-goal at Abbott.” Apart from being one of the leading authorities on nutrition, Dr. Rosales is likewise the Clinical Operations and Nutrition Research Director for Abbott Nutrition Research & Development, Asia Pacific Region.
Quite appropriately, a series of clinical studies and research have shown that the precise combination of DHA (for learning), AA, omega 3 and 6, iron, folic acid, taurine (for vision and cognition), choline (for memory) and zinc; infused with higher levels of phospholipids (for brain processing) and added lutein (for vision) provides the necessary building blocks in addressing a growing child’s brain nutrition needs. It really takes more than one nutrient to achieve optimal brain development in children. Abbott’s Eye-Q Nutrition System helps children at this critical development stage.
