Our Members Asked:
Does Procera AVH really improve memory and mood?
Some studies suggest that the ingredients in Procera AVH do have beneficial effects on cognition, and the supplement did improve memory compared to placebo in a clinical study in healthy individuals (i.e., those without dementia, Alzheimer's disease, or head trauma). However, be aware that the evidence is far from conclusive. Not all studies have found these ingredients to be helpful, and they can be dangerous to take with other supplements and prescription drugs, or if you have certain medical conditions. In addition, some of the advertising claims made for Procera AVH in the past have been unsupported and overstated. See the full answer >>
