What is MemophenolTM ?

MemophenolTM is a twice patent-pending formula combining French grape and blueberry extracts rich in essential polyphenols for cognitive function, clinically tested for short-term and long-term memories and learning.

MemophenolTM’s story started when scientific literature highlighted through epidemiological studies [Lefèvre-Arbogast et al. (2018) ; Root et al. (2015); Rabassa et al. (2015) ; Nooyens et al. (2015); Letenneur L. et al. (2007); Kesse-guyot et al. (2011); Devore et al. (2012)] that nutrition, mainly essential polyphenols’ consumption can prevent from cognitive decline. These first scientific evidences led Activ’Inside to work with public institutions, Harvard and the Inserm to realize the last epidemiological study confirming the beneficial role of essential polyphenols on memory improvement.

MemophenolTM formula was thus developed as part of an international research consortium called NeurophenolTM. The first step of the project consisted in the identification and selection of 2 raw plant materials ensuring the best essential polyphenol contents for cognitive function: the French grape and wild Canadian blueberry, selected for MemophenolTM formulation.

French grape Vitis vinifera L. varieties, mainly coming from Champagne area such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, were selected for their polyphenolic profiles. As confirmed in several analytical studies champagne grape provides higher amounts of flavanol monomers and oligomers when compared to other grape varieties, especially wild American grapes. Such a polyphenol profile confers to Champagne grapes a higher antioxidant activity (ORAC for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity).

Wild blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium A.) provides higher quantities of polyphenols well-known to support cognitive function, such as phenolic acids, flavonols and anthocyanins. As demonstrated in several clinical studies, wild blueberry consumption helps to correct age-related memory impairments. Widely studied for its benefits on memory, an American scientist named Dr Joseph called wild blueberry “the brain berry”.
