Prevagen -- Improve Your Memory!

 Prevagen - Improves Memory 
 
Prevagen is a supplement that was developed by scientists and University researchers in Madison, Wisconsin, now under the name Quincy Bioscience. It functions in the brain to enhance memory; it utilizes a unique ingredient called apoaequorin which was originally found in jellyfish (no jellyfish are harmed during this process). Prevagen has implications in improving mild memory loss that occurs naturally with aging, specifically absentmindedness, and general memory.

The main ingredient in Prevagen, apoaequorin, was discovered in 1962, in a species of glowing jellyfish. The apoaequorin protein, when bound to calcium ions, causes the jellyfish to glow. This calcium-binding protein is very similar to the age-fighting proteins in our body that decrease significantly as we grow older. Prevagen's website stated that we lose up to 30,000 brain cells a day when these proteins start to diminish. Prevagen is a source of replacement for these proteins; its mechanism is basically to maintain calcium homeostasis, or balance. The apoaequorin, binding the calcium, can help control the levels in the brain. In some major diseases, such as Alzheimer's, excess calcium levels are thought to play a role.

When clinical trials were performed on rats to test the safety and efficacy of Prevagen, it was shown that the maximum dosage of Apoaequorin did not result in any mortality rate. This published research found that Prevagen appeared to have no pathological side effects. The study was large, double-blind, placebo-controlled, and used computers to assess brain performance. There were 218 adults over the age of 40 that participated, and "improved learning and word recall" were significantly increased. Prevagen also received a GRAS status (Generally Recognized as Safe) by an independent panel of scientists. It was approved for use in food. In 2012, Prevagen was the number one brain health supplement sold in drug stores, pharmacies, and health food stores across the US.

It generally takes 30-90 days to start benefiting from Prevagen, and to notice an increase in the function of your memory. There have not been any apparent drug-drug interactions, but it is always important to consult your doctor before mixing any medications (even supplements). Prevagen can be taken in conjunction with standard vitamin supplements, as it is not a replacement for these nutrients.

Prevagen is non-allergenic; even though its main ingredient comes from a jellyfish, a jellyfish is not actually a fish, so it is safe for people with fish allergies. It is made with a vegetarian capsule that has a gluten-free filler and other non-allergenic, inactive ingredients. It contains: 10 mg of Apoaequorin, white rice flour, salt, magnesium stearate, acetic acid, and disodium EDTA. You can take Prevagen with or without food, once a day.

Prevagen can be purchased at many major retailers, such as Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, and The Vitamin Shoppe. It is also available for purchase on Amazon, or through Prevagen's website. A one-month supply of Prevagen, ordered through their website, is $59.95. If you buy a two month's supply for $119.90, you can get a third month supply for free. A one year supply, running at $479.60, will get you four free bottles. Prevagen is also available in an Extra Strength formula, which can be purchased for $69.95/month supply. Prevagen is a great company, because they offer a 100% money back guarantee. It is nice to see a company's confidence in their product -- if you are unsatisfied with Prevagen, you can return it within 30 days for a full refund. Therefore, there really is no pressure to give it a try if you are interested!




I was lucky enough to try a 30-day supply of Prevagen for the purposes of this review. I applied to review Prevagen, because I was intrigued by the idea of the apoaequorin. I often see other supplements and herbal concoctions that promise to increase brain strength, health, and memory, but I am very wary of them. I have even heard of "brain water"! For some reason, I just feel like the ingredients in many of these mainstream supplements are not really enough to have any effect. However, Prevagen offers something unique and innovative -- these aren't the ingredients that you find in a typical supplement.

Now that I am in medical school, I subconsciously gravitate to the labels of supplements, as well as to the clinical research backing up the safety and efficacy. It is important to me to only take something that has an actual effect, and that will not be harmful to me. I was surprised by the positive reviews and the great research conducted on Prevagen. I liked that, on their website, they didn't just simply talk about bogus trials -- they listed a link right to a scientific research paper which documented the trials. You may not realize this, but many companies selling supplements may claim to have a very safe and effective formula which is backed up by "real scientists and doctors", but if you take a closer look and dig for the actual paperwork from the trial, you may find a slightly different story. Companies can conduct studies with very few participants, or studies that are biased in their favor. If one person says the supplement is effective, they may be the only one that is actually quoted. If just a handful of people say they experienced no side effects, that may be listed as well. However, this is not representative of the majority. This was not the case with Prevagen. They really do seem to have an effective formula that would not cause side effects in the average individual.






I was excited to try Prevagen, not because I am elderly, but because memory and brain health is very important to me. Every day I am studying for my classes, and it is all about retaining as much information as possible. I am often memorizing information on very little sleep, and in very large quantities. I have never worked my brain this hard, so I need all the brain power I can get! I know that Prevagen would typically be marketed towards older individuals, but I think that anyone who needs to study or take the edge off of their "forgetfulness" should try it as well. I took it for 30 days, coincidentally ending right before a week of major exams. It is hard to say whether it reached its full effectiveness in 30 days, but I did feel as if I was able to recall more information than I had the first week of exams. Unfortunately the information was harder, but still. I cannot be entirely sure, because I am a lot harder to test than an elderly person, but I would love to keep taking it to see if I can notice an even bigger improvement. I am sure that for general sharper thinking and to stop forgetting where you put your keys, this would be a really great supplement.
