Memotenz is a nootropic supplement that is supposed to enhance memory, focus, and concentration. It’s two major ingredients are Ginkgo Biloba and St. John’s Wort. Each bottle contains 30 capsules, and costs $79.98, although you can get it discounted if you buy in bulk.
Supplement Facts: 12/20
- Ginkgo Biloba helps your brain absorb glucose, and helps in the transmission of nerve signals.
- John’s Wort helps increase the production of brain hormones, and it also helps with calming and mood issues.
- Bacopa Monnieri is supposed to enhance your memory.
- Acetyl-L Carnitine promotes neuron growth.
- Phosphatidylserine helps protect the cells of your brain, and helps defend the brain from toxins .
- L-Glutamine HCl, which is an important neurotransmitter.
The new formula of Memotenz doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, which can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it. While it doesn’t have ingredients found in other nootropic supplements, the ingredients in it have been shown to have real effects on your brain function. It’s important to note that we don’t know the exact quantities of these ingredients in the capsules, so we don’t know if each dose actually contains enough of these ingredients to have an effect.
Effects & Benefits: 12/20
After one month trial period, we were left generally unimpressed. There were no immediate effects after taking this supplement for a few days. We only really noticed better concentration after about two weeks of use. Also, there was little to no improvement in memory.
Potential Side Effects: 12/20
While Memotenz lists no side effects, the ingredients say otherwise. St. John’s Wort might cause trouble sleeping, anxiety, irritability, and restlessness, while Phosphatidylserine can cause insomnia in high doses.
Pricing Options: 12/20
You can buy Memotenz through their official website. Here, they have one bottle priced at $79.89 for 30 capsules. You can also get bulk discounts by buying a “best value pack” of five bottles for $199.95. Overall it’s a little pricey for something with so few ingredients.
Online Reviews: 13/20
Online reviews of Memotenz are lackluster to say the least. People aren’t impressed with the ingredient list, which lacks FDA-approved nootropic ingredients. People don’t feel many effects, with few reporting improved memory or improved concentration. There are also some people who report side effects, even though Memotenz claims to have none.
- contains ingredients that have been shown to have a nootropic effect
- ingredients are 100% all natural
- the St. John’s Wort is said to have a calming effect
- does not have any FDA-approved nootropic ingredients
- little positive effects, and may have some negative side effects
- expensive for such a minimal formula
Memotenz looks to be a bit of a let-down for a brain supplement. You’re just as likely to experience some positive effects as you are to experience negative effects, or even no effects at all. And when you do experience positive effects, they take some time to appear. The price is also a little high on this one, so you might just want to save your money for something else.
