New Brain Nutrition releases Online Video Classes on nutrition and mental health taught by experts from the European Union’s Eat2beNICE funded project. New Brain is the dissemination website for the EU Horizon 2020 funded project Eat2beNICE, a consortium of 18 European University Medical Centers which is conducting extensive research and multi-year clinical research on mental health effects of the Mediterranean Diet, an elimination diet, therapeutic broadband supplementation, and probiotic therapy.

The Eat2beNICE Project involves Universities across Europe from the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Sweden, England, Hungary, Estonia and Norway. Almost 90 research scientists are involved in the project which includes PhDs, medical doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychiatric experts, microbiologists, and many other disciplines. The project runs through 2022.
