Frequently Asked Questions
- What is Matter and what does it do?Matter contains a specific B-vitamin complex that is patented to reduce age-related brain atrophy associated with memory decline in combination with omega-3 free fatty acids and a bilberry extract that is rich in plant-based antioxidants called anthocyanins. This specially-calibrated formulation of ingredients is designed to support long-term brain health and was developed in partnership with the University of Oxford.
- How does Matter support long-term brain health?Matter contains a specific B-vitamin complex that was clinically proven to effectively slow the rate of brain atrophy associated with age-related memory loss in a clinical study conducted at the University of Oxford. The B-vitamin complex was shown to work best in people with a good omega-3 fatty acid status, so we have added omega-3 fatty acids to maximize the efficacy of the B-vitamin complex. Lastly, we have added a bilberry extract which is rich in anthocyanins - plant-based pigments that have been shown to support cognitive function.
- What is unique about Matter?Matter contains a clinically proven B-vitamin complex formulated by researchers at the University of Oxford that is patented to reduce age-related brain atrophy associated with memory decline, a powdered omega-3 lysine complex with enhanced bioavailability (better absorption) and no fishy burps, and a bilberry extract that is rich in plant-based antioxidants called anthocyanins and has been shown to support cognitive function.
- What is unique about the omega-3 fatty acids in Matter?Matter contains 584mg of omega-3 fatty acid lysine complex (which includes 262mg EPA + DHA) in the free fatty acid form. Ethyl ester or triglyceride forms need to be hydrolyzed by gastric enzymes to the free fatty acid before they can be absorbed. Matter contains a pre-converted complex that rapidly dissolves to the free fatty acid. A human clinical study demonstrated that omega-3 free fatty acids exhibit 3-5x greater bioavailability relative to ethyl ester forms.
