Mind & Memory Matrix is one of the numerous dietary supplements that claim to enhance memory, clarity and focus, while fighting anxiety and boosting brain and cognitive activity on the overall. And, like many of the other similar formulation, it too fails to bring actual evidence that support its benefits. Instead, its advertised benefits seem to result from the benefits of its individual ingredients, or so are consumers lead to believe. Ginkgo Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Bacopa Monnieri, Phosphatidylserine, Vinpocetine, Huperzine A, are only some of the ingredients commonly linked to brain activity boosting benefits.
The manufacturing company is Nature’s Design, a U.S. based company that offers numerous other dietary supplements for a variety of ailments, including heart problems and weight issues. For some reason which is not made public this exact formula is not included on the official website, nor is there information that it was or it is going to be disclosed. Additionally, it is available for purchase on some of the largest online retail websites.
Mind & Memory Matrix is designed to help adults with the age over 18 to achieve superior cognitive performance, and cope with the everyday stress.
Mind & Memory Matrix contains the following ingredients: Ginkgo Biloba, Phosphatidylserine 4% Complex (consisting of Lecithine and Phosphatidylserine), N-Acetyl-L carnitine HCL, St. John’s Wort, L-Glutamine, DMAE Bitartrate, Bacopa Monniera Leaf extract, Vinpocetine, Huperzine A, Gelatin, vegetable magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose and silicon dioxide.
The supplement features a number of very popular herbal extracts, including Ginkgo Biloba, St. John’s Wort, and Bacopa Monnieri. Each has its own unique set of benefits and mechanism of action. For instance St. John’s Wort is known to help alleviate symptoms of various nervous system disorders. It seems that one of its active substances called hyperforin plays a large role in depression by acting on chemical messengers in the nervous system that regulate mood. St. John’s Wort is also used for PMS and menopause symptoms, skin problems, and digestive upset. On the other hand, the herb appears to interact with blood thinning medication, and drugs aimed at high blood pressure, depression, HIV, allergies, and cough, as well as with immune system drugs.
Another set of ingredients included in the formula are non-herbal, such as DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol), a compound naturally produced by the human brain, although not always in optimal quantities. DMAE has an antioxidant effect, as well as the ability to act as a precursor for Choline, which is the precursor of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine.
Being an antioxidant, DMAE is able to minimize the damaging effects of free radicals, which is why it is popular as a skin care formula, and is advertised as an aged skin rejuvenation agent – it can reduce wrinkles, age spots, and other aging signs.
DMAE has a much more important role as a precursor to Acetylcholine, which is known to be essential memory, learning, attention, and sleep processes. Supporters of DMAE claim it is able to decrease anxiety levels, and boost energy as well as to enhance memory and intellectual capacity altogether. Research is evidently needed to support many of these claims.
Side effects of DMAE are rare and include muscle tension, insomnia, and headaches.
Mind & Memory Matrix should be taken with caution by people suffering from a preexisting condition, including but not limited to seizures, blood clotting issues, pregnant and nursing women or people trying to conceive.

Treatment plans usually take into account patient particularities, such as health history and background, current state of health, severity of the condition being treated, other medication he/she might be on, etc.

Reviews from consumers are generally positive, although complaints also exist.
