Mental Acuity Formula Ingredients
Mental Acuity Formula contains: Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Sodium, Bacopa, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Gingko Biloba.
Mental Acuity Formula is based on a mixed formulation of vitamins, minerals and herbal extracts. It claims to work because of this combination of ingredients, working towards improving the general state of the mind.
One of the combinations of ingredients commonly found in supplements is the B-vitamin complex. In the case of this supplement, the combination used was B6, B12 and Folic Acid (B9), a popular combination nowadays. These ingredients have proven very effective in people that suffer from vitamin deficiency, but have little proven use as supplements in healthy humans. While there is some research being conducted to test the potential of these vitamins in increasing mental capacities, the results so far have proven inconclusive.
Bacopa extracts have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years as treatment for epilepsy and asthma. Nowadays, it is being tested as a cure for neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer’s disease). Extracts of this plant have also shown great use in improving memory and retention of information. This also applies to Gingko Biloba extracts, which have been successfully used as supplements for improving memory and concentration.
Alpha Lipoic Acid, also present in this formulation, is frequently used as a supplement to boost energy levels. However, there is a large number of trials conducted on other potential benefits of this substance, among which boosting cognitive levels and reducing the evolution of Alzheimer’s disease.
Unfortunately, while most of the ingredients show some promise in working towards the product claims, there is no proof research having been conducted to attest the efficiency of the product itself.
There are no known side effects from consumption of this supplement, however it should be avoided by pregnant and nursing women. The recommended dose is 2 capsules each day.

Many people fear the prospect of losing their mental capacities as they age; many others also feel like they need some aid in their daily life dealing with the intellectual challenges posed by their environment. Mental Acuity Formula claims that it can help people dealing with all these problems, although this claim is slightly questionable.
As there is no evidence of testing or research having been done on the product, it is hard to objectively assess its effectiveness. If customer testimonials are to be taken into account though, it would seem that Mental Acuity Formula has proven effective for some people, making them feel mentally invigorated and ready to use their brains at full capacity.
