MFGM components* promote production and transmission of neurotransmitters9,10 (substances that participate in the creation of brain cell connections) and thereby regulate mental abilities, emotions and mood11. They also form a sheath that coats, insulates and protects nerve cells within the brain, helping them to become more stable to transmit information faster12,13. Scientific study show that MFGM consumption leads to improved emotional and behavioral regulation in young children4.
