Nutrition Supports Performance and Brain Health in Air Force Personnel
- Main Image
Everyone needs a sharp mind and a healthy body to perform their best. That's especially true of the men and women who serve in the United States Air Force (USAF).
That's why the Center for Nutrition, Learning, and Memory (CNLM) — a pioneering research partnership between Abbott and the University of Illinois — is collaborating on a multi-year study with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to examine the connection between nutrition and brain performance. They're interested in how nutrition affects the brain and in how exercise and nutrition can help improve airmen's cognitive function—attention, focus and decision-making abilities— as well as physical endurance. And while the study is focused on individuals serving in the armed forces, this nutrition research stands to benefit everyone.
