Milk contains a vast range of complex lipids and phospholipids known to positively influence brain and cognitive development processes in the offspring. Although nutrients are critical to the rapidly developing brain during the infant years, recent research on brain neurogenesis and plasticity confirms that good nutrition is important for optimal brain function throughout our lifecycle (childhood, adolescent, adulthood, and the senior years).
The phospholipid profile of bovine milk has a profile that is very similar to the phospholipid pro-file of human milk and brain.
