I've noticed a slight improvement in cognitive values. I still on occasion experience a slip of memory / forgot what I walked into the other room for, etc. However, those episodes are somewhat diminished and I will keep taking this BHF unless a more potent product is offered by GNC. Yes, I would recommend this product. Bear in mind that we are all wired differently... meaning what may work mildly for me, may work wonders for someone else!

Great product!
I bought this for my mom who has been suffering from worsening dementia. It really helped incredibly well with the depression and combativeness that she was experiencing. When I run out or she skips doses, it is apparent in her behavior.

I know that there is no real cure or reversal but this product really, really helped with some of the worse symptoms.

Good Stuff!
This supplement provides my brain with a distinct edge. At age 71, I have yet to become aware of any lapse in memory or cognitive ability. I only take it 1x/day, as I am small and taking it twice daily seems to make me a bit hyperactive . Reading the enclosure in the box will help you understand how this product facilitates brain function. I will continue taking this and increase frequency as indicated. Thank you.

Sharper and more focused
I find my brain is more focused on day to day activities and feel sharper than without this product. I'm older and felt I wasn't keeping up with the goings-on in my office. I searched for something other that St John;s wort and found this product. I hope to never be without it.

I cant tell
I dont know if this has boosted my cognition or not. When I started taking it headaches were the result. After a while the headaches subsided, but I didn't notice in any reasonable change in my cognition or retention of information. Also, the pills are HUGE so they are kinda hard to swallow.

On the plus side, I did my research on the active ingredients and they do seem to suggest that over the long run taking this regularly will help one avoid things like dementia and Alzheimer so even though I am young it is wise to prepare for old age (especially if such mental issues run in your genes).

Improved memory
I started taking this about a year ago. I have noticed a definite improvement in my memory and more capable of accessing names & information more quickly when I focus. I take this once a day and highly recommend this supplement.

I do not see even on the label given, the dosages. Can this be provided for GNC Preventive Nutrition® Brain Health Formula?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Your answer depends on the individual. Usually one a day would suffice, four a day, spaced out if you have Parkinson's disease because of the L-tyrosine, which turns into dopamine. I recommend one a day to start off and see how you feel. Good luck.

Is this safe to take every day?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I do & have been for several years. I feel this is very important to keep up with. I need to feel secure that I my brain is being supplied vital nutrients to support clear thinking. Obviously, this is my personal opinion & experience. If you prefer to take some other type of supplements for brain health, try capsules that contain various mushrooms. I tried this recently for one month but decided to use this instead.
