Hi there

I'm afraid that this is not a product that I have come across. I'm certainly not aware of any people that have used it. Having a quick look I can see that it claims to be a product that aims 'to boost cognitive performance and brain health, as well as reduce oxidative stress that contributes to aging'. I have found the following link that provides some user feedback.

In terms of any supplements or alternative therapies, I think its worth saying that it's important to exercise caution before buying anything online and making sure that there is evidence to back up its efficacy. There are a wide range of supplements available and mostly we focus on nutritional supplements.

I do hope this is useful in some way.

Kind regards

Thank you very much for explaining. I saw it mentioned on another forum talking about Pancreatic Cancer so thought I would ask.

I didn't realise it was an alternative therapy, I think we will definitely be sticking with science and conventional medicine.

Thanks again
