2) Does Herbal Extract Memory Complex Work?

Swanson Memory Complex is an herbal supplement aimed to help with improving memory. According to the manufacturer, the formula can increase the blood flow to the brain so that a person is alert and stays focused. It is also claiming to reduce fatigue which can create problems for memory recall.

The ingredients in this supplement are very common for memory enhancers and brain supplements. However, there isn’t sufficient information that has been compiled to prove them worthy of such credit.

There is no data provided by the manufacturer of Swanson Memory Complex that details what research they have done in this area. They don’t explain why they believe this specific formula that they offer is what a person needs to improve their memory.

The daily recommended dose of Swanson Memory Complex is one capsule with food and water. Taking it on an empty stomach may trigger nausea. The supplement should be taken daily for best results.

Swanson Memory Complex is a slow-acting formula, and it may take several weeks of use before significant improvements in memory function are realized. Women who are pregnant or nursing shouldn’t use this supplement. Those that are taking blood thinner medications aren’t a good candidate either due to the inclusion of Ginkgo Biloba. Individuals with a history of seizures, heart problems, or low blood pressure need to consult with their doctor before using it.
