I'm in that "special" age bracket. Does anyone have any personal insights or reviews that this actually works?  TIA!

Don't waste your money.

 

 

Studies done have shown that it's no more effective than a placebo.

 

The active ingredient is broken  down in the digestive tract, and doesn't enter the brain.

My 83 year old Mother swears it helps her. She's been taking it for about a year. Since the pandemic I've been getting all her groceries & pharmacy items. I was surprised to read the label & see it was mostly vitamin D. I called one of my pharmacist sons to get his opinion. He wasn't impressed with it.

ditto.  I was going to buy this for myself and my husband.  I take Vitamin D daily but it doesn't help with memory and this product's endorsement by people taking it for 5 years or more was impressive.  It's hard to discern the real story.

The makers of Prevagen got in trouble for false advertising. There was a law suit and customers were reimbursed their money. Now the company says it's product only supports brain health, nothing more like memory improvement as it said before the law suit.
