High-quality ingredients

Active ingredients for cognitive health

Mother nature has the power to nourish, enhance and heal the brain and the body. At Linnea, our goal is to find, study and standardize botanical ingredients that help repair neural pathways and boost cognitive performance.


The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting social restrictions have exposed individuals around the globe to additional stress, anxiety and an unprecedented and still-increasing number of mental health issues.

The changes in cognitive functioning and rising mental health challenges can be ascribed to limited social interaction, while our desire to combat these pitfalls is reflected in the increased interest in natural remedies, both for pharma and dietary purposes.

Linnea has provided ingredients from plants since 1982 and its product portfolio includes several extracts that can help manage depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, changes in appetite and health challenges.

Quality is our measure of excellence.
