  • Better concentrate and focus on their studies

  • Improve academic performance by boosting memory and higher order thinking skills

  • Protect their mental health – reducing the effects stress and anxiety

  • Strengthen their immune systems

  • Improve their performance in creative or sporting pursuits

  • Maintain a healthy body weight
