Several clinical tests have shown it may be able to improve focus, concentration, speed of recall, memory and accuracy, however solid scientific evidence to support this claim is still required.

Herbal products and alternative medicine remedies have gained increasing popularity over the past few decades. There are reports that almost 20% of the U.S. population is frequently turning to herbal medicine to treat common illnesses. However, the fact that the FDA does not regulate the production of herbal supplements and hence no clear regulation or standardization exists, leads to safety and other concerns that may temper the decision to use these products. It is hence always advised that you consult a healthcare provider before using such products.
Clear Boost is a mixture of herbs which promises to deliver increased stamina and focus in a safe and side-effect free manner. However, there is no evidence to support this claim, nor are there consumer reviews. The individual use of the ingredients has been sometimes associated to certain side effects which are not to be ignored. Still, the formula may be effective for some patients, since many of the ingredients have been linked to benefits similar to those advertised by the formula.
