Chronic consumption of a wild green oat extract (Neuravena)
improves brachial flow-mediated dilatation
and cerebrovascular responsiveness in older adults.
Chronic effects of a wild green oat extract supplementation
on cognitive performance in older adults:
a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial.
Preliminary evaluation of a WGOE
(wild green oat extract)
(Neuravena(®) ELFA(®)955, Frutarom, Switzerland)
revealed an acute cognitive benefit of supplementation.
It appears that the cognitive benefit of
acute WGOE supplementation
does not persist with chronic treatment
in older adults with normal cognition.
It remains to be seen whether
sustained effects of WGOE supplementation
may be more evident in those with
mild cognitive impairment.
A 12-week randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled
cross-over trial of WGOE supplementation (1500 mg/day)
versus placebo was undertaken in 37 healthy adults
aged 67 ± 0.8 years (mean ± SEM).
Cognitive assessments included the Stroop colour-word test,
letter cancellation, the rule-shift task,
a computerised multi-tasking test battery
and the trail-making task.
All assessments were conducted in Week 12
and repeated in Week 24 whilst subjects were
fasted and at least 18 h after taking the last dose of supplement.
Neuravena® (EFLA®955, Frutarom, Switzerland), can
acutely improve mental function in humans [5,6].
A single oral dose of 2500 mg wild green oat extract
in healthy humans significantly increase in
theta electric brain activity
in the left frontotemporal region
during a concentration task,
compared with a 1250 mg dose or a placebo.
