Trident Brands Inc. and NorthShore University HealthSystem Initiate Pre-clinical Trial of Brain Armor® Formulas

Brookfield, WI, Sept. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Trident Brands Inc. (OTCQB: TDNT), a biotech and nutraceutical company, announced the first research project to be initiated under a research collaboration partnership with Evanston, Illinois-based NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore).

The pre-clinical trial will advance nutrition science by investigating Brain Armor® proprietary formulas and how they may mitigate mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) in an animal model.

“Our partnership will allow Brain Armor to lead the way in the development of scientifically validated supplements targeting holistic brain health. The project we are announcing today is just the beginning of a long-term research collaboration to identify how we can improve the overall function of the brain by providing nutrients to support brain cell structure, improve mitochondrial function and protect the brain from inflammation. In this phase we are exploring CBD and the entourage effect of CBD plus other nutrients on mTBI, a significant brain health issue. We will also seek to determine which nutrients and nutrient combinations may improve focus, cognition and mental performance,” says Alan Jones, Chief Scientific Officer for Trident Brands Inc.

Trident Brands Inc. is structured to develop and commercialize innovative brand platforms, private and control label programs and proprietary ingredient technology in the active nutrition and dietary supplement category.

"We are enthusiastic about this collaboration, as well as continuing our laboratory's experimental work on brain injury, cellular mechanisms, and protection,” said Julian Bailes, MD, Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at NorthShore and co-director of the NorthShore Neurological Institute. “The potential for improvement in the brain's responses to inflammation, lack of blood flow, traumatic damage, and repetitive impacts are areas of exciting research in which we look forward to participating. This ongoing work should open up areas of additional understanding and insight into a better outcome from mild traumatic brain injury."
