Jornal of American Medicine and other reputable sources call it a $3 B fraud.

There are no known products that actually help with memory. There have been, and are, some prescription meds on the market that have been approved by the FDA to treat or slow dementia changes in Alzheimer's. The first of these tacrine (brand name Cognex) is no longer marketed in the US. It doesn't work. I figured it was doomed when it first came out - a medicine to help memory loss and it needed to be taken four times a day, Good luck with that! The results seen with the other four available prescription drugs have been underwhelming to say the least and temporary at best. Three of these are cholinesterase inhibitors which can be used as mono therapy with the fourth drug which had a different mechanism of action and can also be used as monotherapy. I'm not naming any of these as their efficacy in the real world is sketchy at best.
As for prevagen? When your big marketing hook is that it contains a protein found in a jellyfish, you know that the company is stretching to find a way to market the product. The particular jellyfish that contains apoaquorin is found in Puget Sound and also glows in the dark. Oh, by the way, jellyfish don't have a brain. And the apoaquorin in Prevagen is synthetic so it least no jellyfish or snakes were harmed in the manufacturing process.

actually there are things to help with brain functions, but they're listed as controlled substances and I wasn't able to figure out how to get a script
