In the emerging field of nutritional neuroscience, Dr. Dugal-Tessier is passionate about understanding how stress depletes the raw materials required for brain health (mood, cognition, learning and memory) and how this impacts performance.

As a mother of two, an entrepreneur, a competitor and a woman in science, Dr. Dugal-Tessier knows all too well the challenges and struggles our brain faces on a daily basis and how this can affect mental wellness, happiness and productivity.

What if, something as simple as the right nutrients could IGNITE our brains to function at the potential we deserve.
