The main issue with synthetic ingredients is that you don’t always get what you pay for. In reality, synthetic ingredients are well known for their low absorption, poor bioavailability, and the fact that they drain the body’s reserves of other minerals and vitamins (e.g., cofactors) required for proper absorption of other nutrients.
At BrainReference we recognize that dietary supplements can be the source of many allergic responses either due to cross-contamination with high-allergen compounds during the manufacturing process or because they incorporate ingredients obtained from high-risk allergenic foods (milk, eggs, or fish).
Companies with less integrity will use dangerous fillers as a “grease or lube” to aid in easier and faster production. Artificial dyes and colors are used to make supplements more appealing to the eye. Coatings are added to make capsules easier to swallow. How do these fillers impact your body and health?
Independent testing labs are not associated with the producing company, ingredients supplier, the company whose name appears on the product, or with the consumer. This means independent testing labs have no vested interest in the result of the testing and are less likely to “dry lab” or manipulate test results for self-serving reasons.
Memory Boost formula is advertised as a solution for those experiencing short-term memory related problems such as forgetting dates or misplacing things. The supplement is designed to support and maintain a healthy brain function while providing the necessary mental endurance and alertness. The manufacturer offers very little information on how the product is supposed to work.
The company behind this product is Highland Laboratories, a company with 40 years of experience in the natural products industry. The company which is headquartered in USA is GMP certified and claims to comply with all state federal regulatory laws.
Memory Boost is marketed as a product consisting of clinically researched ingredients which have been shown to improve memory, mental alertness and cognitive capacity, increase the ability to retain new information and support a generally healthy mood.
Memory Boost Ingredients
Memory Boost contains the following ingredients: Niacinamide, Guarana Seed (Paulina cupana), Panax Ginseng Root, L-Theanine, Vegetable Capsule, Vegetable Stearate, Bamboo Powder and Silicon Dioxide.
Memory Boost is an amino acid, herbal and vitamin based formula. Niacinamide is the water-soluble form of vitamin B3. It is considered an essential substance for the production of 2 coenzymes considered responsible for energy production in human body. Inadequate quantities of Niacinamide have been linked to mental and nervous system related problems such as anxiety, depression and in more severe cases, personality changes.
Memory Boost also contains a combination of herbal extracts from Guarana Seed, L-theanine tea extract and Panax Ginseng root, shown to have positive effects on memory (learning capacity and mental sharpness). L-Theanine is also known for its relaxant properties, however there is concern that it may interfere with hypertension treatment drugs.
The formula comes in the form of vegetarian capsules recommended in a serving size of 1- 2 capsules daily. For maximum effectiveness the recommended times are in the morning and early in the afternoon.

Memory Boost from Highland Laboratories is a vegetarian formula created for the support of a healthy brain, helping to better concentrate, boost memory and learning abilities, improve cognitive function while maintaining a good mood.
The formula is advertised as containing ingredients involved in clinical research which have been proven efficient in helping with memory related problems. However, there is no proof that their combination within Memory Boost is as effective.
There is also a lack of consumer reviews to support the claimed benefits. Considering that a daily value of its main active ingredients has not been established and no precautions are issued by the developer of Memory Boost, we recommend a healthcare professional is consulted before using this product.
