Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great find! I have to admit that I was skeptical about this product (or anything similar to it) but I am a believer now. After just a few days I could tell a difference in my ability to focus and multitask at work. Price is manageable and like that you only have to take one dose a day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brain Fuel I've been taking this product for years, and continue to do so. It helps give me the mental edge I need, especially at work trying to figure out complex problems. I suspect the one pill I take in the morning is loosing some effectiveness, because I've taken it for years, nevertheless, the value is still there, especially at this price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected More often than not, when consumers order supplements, especially online,...'at a reasonable price', it's easy to sometimes be suspicious that perhaps there be a quality issues. Surprisingly, that is not the case with this particular vitamin. This vitamin affects your alertness, just enough, you are 'out of the clouds' with groggyness,...just perfect. I am happy enough, that I have placed another order.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What was your name? Mid sixties and suffering from "information overload". With Brain Essentials I am able to remember names in my classes the first time. Met one of my students about six months after he was in my class. I was able to introduce him to my wife and relate part of his educational history in the introduction that impressed him. Easy to take.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome combination Brain Essentials is amazing. I have always preferred to create my own combination of ginko biloba ,eleuthero etc, so I was a bit skeptical of one pill that contained everything I needed. Not anymore. I notice a real difference in my alertness and functioning when I take brain essentials and won't be without it again.
