Cognis Health & Nutrition (La Grange, IL) has exclusively licensed two new active ingredients for weight management and cognitive performance from InterMed Discovery (IMD; Dortmund, Germany).

Cognis says that both ingredients show promising benefits based on IMD’s testing, including in vivo tests. Cognis plans to conduct its own testing on the ingredients this year.

Cognis has already licensed four other ingredients from IMD for weight management and heart health. A clinical test on one of the four ingredients will begin later this year, while the other ingredients are in advanced preclinical testing and scale-up mode.
