FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions

What are Brain and Memory Supplements and how do they work?
As we age we begin to experience memory loss, trouble focusing and sometime a feeling of brain fog. Top rated formulas contain natural nutrients, also known as nootropics, which help reverse these conditions in a non-addictive and non-stimulating way. The natural ingredients work to improve both the membrane structure of the brain and fight cell damaging free radicals. The anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory effects help improve blood flow and oxygen to the brain, improving mental performance, concentration and alertness.

Do all Brain and Memory Supplements being sold work?
The reality is that MOST of these products don’t work effectively. Many of the products don’t have “the right stuff.” They either don’t have the correct proportions of the key ingredients, or are loaded with fillers and binders that reduce the effectiveness.

What ingredients should I look for?
You want to look for the “Essential 5” brain and memory boosting ingredients to be included: DHA Omega 3, Huperzine A, Phosphatidylserine , Bacopin and N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine. The product also needs to have key support vitamin and nutrients to aid in aid in absorption of the “essential 5.” Avoid companies that use any other ingredients other than the capsule itself.

Are memory pills safe to use?
We always recommend that you consult your physician if you feel a brain pill may interfere with an existing medical condition. Pregnant and nursing women should not take brain and memory supplements.

How much should do I take?
It is important to follow the directions on the label of each brand. Typically, you would take one pill twice per day, 1 capsule in the morning and 1 at night with a full glass of water.

How long until I see results?
Some users have reported seeing results in as little as one week. There are others who take about a month. Each person is different, and results may vary. Select a reputable company with a no questions asked return policy in case you are not seeing the results you want.

What is the right price to pay?
Pricing varies between sellers. We have even seen some go for as much as $100 a bottle, which we think is just too much. Of the better supplements we tested, most of them fell in the $40 to $50 price range. Be on the lookout for products with prices that look to good to be true.  The less expensive brands either don’t have the correct proportions of ingredients, are loaded with fillers and binders or require you to take 3-4 pills making what seems like a 30-day supply really be less than a 14-day supply.

Are there any side effects?
There are no known side effects of Super Brain Renew. We recommend not taking more than the recommended dosage. People with known medical conditions or who are nursing or pregnant should consult a physician before taking a brain health pill.

Which one is the best one to use?
As with anything, different people will have varying results with products. However, we particularly like Thrive Naturals Super Brain Renew. They were the only brand which had all of “Essential 5” ingredients form of the over 38 popular brands we researched.

It is interesting to see which product is right for you, but we think you will love Thrive Naturals Super Brain Renew, a truly pure and high quality product at a great price.
