1) Quick Overview

Brain Booster is an herbal formulation of over 10 popular extracts, commonly used in formulation targeting brain health.

Gotu Kola, traditionally used by the Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine practitioners, is commonly recommended today against memory loss, fatigue, flues and colds, depression and anxiety, diarrhea and liver problems. However, it has not received FDA approval as a medication and most of these benefit claims have not been thoroughly tested. Side effects are rare and occur when taken in high dosages.

Shankapusphi is also Indian in origin, and is known as a powerful brain tonic. In fact, it is believed to be one of the few plants to enhance all aspects of brain power (learning, memory and recall capacity), while also inducing a feeling of calm and peace. Shankapusphi extract is a common ingredient in insomnia remedies and may be effective in relieving anxiety and mental fatigue.

How To Take

6) How to Take Brain Booster

There are no consumer reviews available to support the benefits of Brain Booster, therefore we cannot fairly assess the effectiveness of the formula. Although the manufacturer mentions no side effects for the formula as it is, unwanted effects have been reported for some of its ingredients (for instance Gotu Kola and Ginkgo Biloba). The recommended daily dosage of Brain Booster is 3 capsules.


7) Conclusion

Dherbs Memory Booster is a blend of herbal ingredients commonly used by modern herbal medicine practitioners, ingredients such as Ginkgo Biloba, Gotu Kola, Bacopa Monniera or Shankapusphi. Many of these ingredients possess a wide spectrum of benefits, including on brain health and brain function enhancement, making the formula’s benefit claims believable. However, there is no evidence that the formula was tested as such, nor could we find any consumer testimonials to assess its effectiveness or list potential side effects experienced.

In conclusion, given that side effects have been mentioned for some ingredients under certain conditions, it is our strong advice to seek specialized advice prior to beginning treatment with Brain Booster.

My best friend is using this product and she looks quite happy with it. I tried it a few days but I didn’t liked it. I guess is not for everyone…
