What's New: Milk Phospholipids to manage the effects of stress

Phospholipids are building blocks of all cell membranes playing important roles in our brain and nervous system. As we age, brain phospholipid levels decline, a condition potentially ameliorated by phospholipid supplementation.


Naturally present in milk as part of the milk fat globule membrane, milk phospholipids are complex lipids clinically proven to manage the effects of stress, helping maintain performance by staying focused and positive. Suitable for use as a standalone product, or as an addition to a wide range of food and drink applications.
