Video-Leveraging AI to provide personalised neuro-nutrient recommendations [Video interview]

A Swiss startup has won an award for its technology that uses AI to analyse mental health symptoms, combined with neuro-biomarkers from dried urine samples, to provide personalised neuro-nutrient recommendations.

HEALTHY-LONGER, which won the prize for Most Innovative Digital Solution Supporting the Nutraceutical Industry at the inaugural Vitafoods Europe Startup Innovation Challenge, says its technology can be employed to help repair neuro-metabolic pathways in the brain and nervous system.

We caught up with the co-founders, CEO Joanna Ledunger and director Roland Pfeuti, after they accepted their award at a ceremony hosted live at the event in Geneva earlier this year.
