Food for Thought – Performance Nutrition for Enhanced Cognition

May 20, 2021|12:00pm

The food we eat has an impact not only on our bodies, but also on our brains and cognition. Recent evidence indicates that certain nutritional strategies can mitigate fatigue, increase attention and memory, defend against mental deterioration, and improve our cognitive performance.

Join us for this noontime webinar to discover the current evidence and nutritional strategies that can improve your cognitive performance. You will learn about the acute effects of food on cognition, five strategies to improve our cognitive performance, and ways to choose meals and snacks at work to increase alertness and combat daytime sleepiness.

This webinar is only available at the scheduled date and time.
