Feed your mind to support cognitive health and memory with the amino acid nutrition of Swanson Premium Glutamic Acid.* Although it is found in tissues throughout the body, glutamic acid is best known as a “brain food,” thanks to the fundamental role it plays in learning and memory.* Glutamic acid can be converted as needed into glutamine, a crucial amino acid that can often be depleted during times of increased stress or intense physical exercise.* Our veggie capsules are an economical source of premium-quality glutamic acid for your mind and body.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ridiculous. . My Fault This may sound ridiculous, given that it is supposed to help with mental clarity and focus, but I can't review it because I keep FORGETTING to take it LOL! - it is to be taken between meals. But, I don't eat regularly. I eat when I eat. Hard to time "between meals" for me. Try it if you eat on a regular schedule.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brain Power ! I was introduced to this, many years ago. It works great ! As all herbs, it takes a short time to act...but the wait & results are worth it. You don't need to buy the "high priced" product. Swanson has the best price & product !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well Enough! My family & I have used this over the last few weeks & found we all had more energy, but by the end of dinner, we all wanted to sleep. Still for the daytime when your wits are needed, it's a good product. Thanks Swanson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A find! I'm so glad I found this product again many decades later! It was first prescribed to me by a German psychiatrist while I was under a great deal of stress previous to my doctoral exam. It is a wonderful nerve nutrient and helped me to pass the exam with flying colors. I am using it again today for age related reasons.
