Remembering the Past
I have been taking the brain health formula for about 8 months now and it seems to help. My wife died last year and I was having some trouble remembering all the good times we had. Since starting this formula I have been able to remember more of my past. I am 65 years old, so there is a lot to remember and this formula has helped me.

Very impressed
I really like the Brain Health Formula. I can last longer, in the day, in my job. I work in retail and would get so tired from fast thinking. I could barely make it to the end of my shift. Now, I have been feeling better and more awake to finish my shift.

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.
