The effects of silkworm cocoon extract Cera-Q
on cognitive function

Bioactive peptides such as those in silkworm cocoon have many different properties including anti-oxidant, cholesterol lowering, and cardiovascular effects, and may therefore support brain and cognitive function. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of 3 weeks of supplementation with a silk fibroin protein extract (Cera-Q) on memory, cognitive function and mood. 

We are looking for healthy participants aged 18-70 to take part in this study.
