Memory Recall is formulated to support memory recall, concentration, mental alertness and learning capacity. The formula is offered by Totally Natural Products, an Australian company which manufactures and markets a variety of herbal and nutritional supplements.
The company founded more than 30 years ago claims to be operate GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes) and TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) approved facilities and to manufacture their products under strict guidelines to ensure the required quality and maximum effectiveness.
The formula supports normal brain function in healthy people, but may also help those who experience decline in memory, concentration and learning capacity, irrespective the cause. The manufacturer claims the formula also assists with symptomatic relief of tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and motion sickness. Patients taking anti-coagulants (including aspirin), anti-epileptic and anti-convulsant medication are advised to avoid using the formula as some of the main ingredients may interfere with the action of these drugs. Memory Recall is for adults use only.

Memory Recall is a wide spectrum benefits product, benefits which include improved memory and cognitive performance, relief from tinnitus, increase in energy and stress relief, fight motion sickness and improved blood circulation to the brain. The formula is a blend of herbal extracts, vitamins and minerals.
Zingiber officinale (Ginger) is an herb. Research showed it contains chemicals which work to reduce nausea and inflammation in the stomach and intestines, but also at brain and nervous system level. Hence, it is commonly used to treat various types of stomach conditions, such as motion sickness, upset stomach, morning sickness, gas, diarrhea, vomiting or loss of appetite. While it is considered likely safe, side effects have been reported (heartburn and diarrhea).
Bioflavonoids are a group of naturally occurring plant compounds. They act primarily as plant pigments and, while they exhibit a vast array of biological activities, they are most known for their antioxidants properties. They are known to have both health-promoting effects (improved cardiovascular and capillary strength, improved eyesight, lower the risk of arthritis and gastrointestinal disorders) and therapeutic effects (treatment of viral infections, allergies or ulcer).
Memory Recall is advertised to contain no added sugar, dairy, lactose, gluten, wheat, corn starch, yeast, soy, corn, animal products and preservatives.
The recommended daily dosage for adults is 1 tablet. The manufacturer warns for a number of health conditions which the formula may worsen (such as peptic ulcerations, drug induced sensitivity) or cases in which use should be avoided (surgery). No consumer reviews are available online, therefore we cannot say to what extent the product reaches its goal.
- The formula contains the standardized scientifically researched extracts of Ginkgo Biloba;
- Detailed information on product interactions, warnings, precautions and side effects are offered by the manufacturer;
- A naturopath can be consulted on an allocated number at any time during working hours (Australian time);
- Memory Recall is free of sugar, artificial ingredients or allergenic substances.
- Long list of precautions and drug interactions issued by the manufacturer;
- Side effects have been associated to the main ingredients (Ginkgo Biloba and Ginger particularly);
- There are no consumer reviews available online, therefore it’s difficult to evaluate formula effectiveness.
Memory Recall is yet another formula which claims to help with working memory, cognitive performance and learning ability, but also with a number of other more or less related health conditions (tinnitus, motion sickness, energy boost, etc).
Yet, the manufacturer brings no evidence that the combination is working, other than assuming it will have the sum of its individual ingredients’ benefits. No consumer testimonials are available either, so we really cannot draw a conclusion on its effectiveness in the claimed area.
The manufacturer does however offer details on potential drug interactions, precautions and warnings, giving the formula credibility. Given that the ingredients have caused side effects in some patients and that they may interact with certain drugs and maybe with one another, we recommend you seek specialized advice prior to use.
