Bright Minds Memory Powder

Bright Minds Memory Powder was scientifically formulated to support, promote and enhance memory, attention, mood, and other brain functions without the hassle of having to swallow handfuls of capsules or tablets each day. Instead, we carefully selected the most powerful and clinically proven ingredients and blended them into a tasty, citrus-flavored drink mix. Simply add to water, juice, or your fruit smoothie and mix. What makes this memory supplement special is not just the way you take it. We reviewed hundreds of human clinical trials published in respected scientific journals. We used rigorous criteria to choose an array of potent nutrients critical to brain health, including plant nutraceuticals, herbal concentrates, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other ingredients that help enhance memory for names, faces, words, numbers, recent events, and treasured life experiences.


Daniel Amen, MD, founder of BrainMD developed a list of challenges that can negatively affect brain function and most specifically, memory. These challenges spell out B-R-I-G-H-T-M-I-N-D-S. This powder was designed to help us address these challenges. They are: Blood flow, Retirement/aging, unrestrained Inflammation, Genetic factors, Head accidents, Toxins, Mental health, Immunity, Neurohormone balance, Diabesity, Sleep problems.


The 34 powerful active ingredients positively affect your brain and body in so many ways, but their main beneficial actions are:

Enhancing Brain Blood Flow: The better the brain's circulation, the more oxygen and nutrients it can receive to support memory all through life. Ginkgo, resveratrol, lutein, zeaxanthin, CoQ10, as well as vitamins and minerals in this powder, promote healthy blood flow to the brain.

Boosting Energy: The brain weighs just 2-3 pounds yet it uses at least 20 percent of all the body's energy. PS (PhosphatidylSerine), acetylcarnitine, B vitamins, magnesium, chromium, alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10 and other nutraceuticals in this formula provide the building blocks for energizing memory processes.

Promoting Brain Connectivity: The brain's trillions of nerve cell connections (called synapses) rely on PS for their electrical activity. The numerous antioxidants in Bright Minds help protect these synapses against damage. Additionally, numerous methyl nutrients in the formula support synapse maintenance and protect the brain against damage from homocysteine buildup.

Antioxidants for Protection: We’ve all heard of "free radicals" and the damage they can cause. But did you know that free radicals are a byproduct of the intense energy used in the brain? Lutein, zeaxanthin, alpha-lipoic acid, zinc, selenium, manganese, vitamins C and E, CoQ10, and the other antioxidants in this comprehensive formula protect against such internally generated toxins but also against external ones like alcohol, cigarette or marijuana smoke, air pollutants, "recreational" drugs, pharmaceuticals, lead and other water pollutants, molds, cosmetic ingredients, and the plethora of other modern toxins to which we are exposed.

Neurotransmitter Support: Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that travel across synapses in the brain. Huperzine A, acetylcarnitine and choline promote acetylcholine, a key memory transmitter. PS, Vitamin D3, all the B vitamins, magnesium and other minerals support the production, release, and synapse actions of multiple neurotransmitter systems across the brain.

The Jury is Still Out....

I will have a hard time finding out if this product works or not because I find the taste so objectionable. Used it in my morning smoothie twice and found the sweetness overpowering. If this came in a non-flavored version I could give it real try. Way too expensive to let it sit on the shelf. I\'ll see if I can learn to like it.

Ingredients & Facts

  • Phosphatidylserine (PS)
    PS is the nutrient best documented for improving memory. It occurs naturally in all cells, being a universal building block for the dynamic membrane systems that make cells work. In humans PS is most concentrated in the brain, mostly in its trillions of nerve cell connections (synapses) but also in the mitochondria that generate the power they need. The main clinical benefits of PS include:
    • Enhances memory for words, names, faces, events in people over 50
    • Promotes attention, learning, memory in people of all ages
    • Improves attention and behavior in challenged children
    • Supports coping with stress, especially in young adults
  • Resveratrol
    This plant nutrient is being intensively researched for promoting healthy gene regulation, and clinical studies indicate it can improve blood vessel function, promote healthy blood sugar utilization and improve word recall memory. This formula supplies a generous daily dose of resveratrol, exceeding the doses possible from reasonable intakes of red wine. A single 75-milligram dose of resveratrol (as this formula supplies) can substantially increase blood delivery into the brain.
  • Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC)
    This nutrient also occurs naturally in our cells, and is fundamentally important for the mitochondria to generate energy, as well as for gene regulation above the level of DNA (epigenetics) and various neurotransmitter functions. Among ALC's many benefits are its promotion of healthy memory, lessening of mental fatigue, enhancement of mood, and support for the production of acetylcholine which is a major memory neurotransmitter. Like PS, ALC facilitates nerve growth factor actions that sustains nerve cell maintenance and survival.
  • Ginkgo Biloba Extract (Ginkgo)
    This intensively researched plant extract promotes healthy blood flow, which is crucial for optimal brain function. Ginkgo's unique combination of antioxidants and blood vessel protectants also helps protect the brain against toxins while promoting overall mental sharpness.
  • Huperzine A
    Extracted from Huperzia serrata (club moss), a traditional Chinese medicinal herb, this substance improves the actions of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter system, which plays a central role in memory and behavior.
  • Lutein and Zeaxanthin
    These two carotenoid nutrients are practically vitamins since the body cannot make them. Both are very powerful antioxidants specialized to protect against free radicals generated by electrical activity as occurs in the brain and the retina of the eye. Both are essential for vision and both are highly concentrated in the brain. Recent clinical studies strongly indicate they can improve memory.
  • Chromium
    This mineral by itself improved memory in a double-blind clinical trial. Chromium is essential for healthy blood sugar metabolism. This formula provides the picolinate form, which is very well absorbed, and one serving supplies the full 1000 micrograms per day of chromium that worked in the memory trial.
  • Magnesium and Calcium
    These two minerals have a “yin-yang” relationship, each helping to balance the actions of the other. The brain needs just small amounts of calcium for its normal electrical connectivity, but relatively large amounts of magnesium not only to balance calcium but to facilitate energy production. Magnesium is required by at least 300 enzymes most of which are needed to make energy. Surveys indicate more than half of all Americans likely aren't getting enough magnesium from their diet.
  • Choline
    This nutrient is practically a vitamin, since some people need to get it partly from their diet. The brain readily imports choline to support its production of acetylcholine, our most abundant nerve transmitter. Choline also supplies methyl groups, which provide important backup for the methyl groups coming from folate and vitamin B12 (see the entries for methylfolate and methyl-B12, below). Choline is also crucial for numerous life-sustaining processes in the liver, the body's metabolic workhorse organ.
  • The B Vitamin Group
    Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, folate, biotin – work closely together and are absolutely essential for every aspect of brain function. These are essential cofactors for enzymes involved with practically every brain function. The brain even has special transporters to import them across the blood-brain barrier. Deficiency of one B vitamin can impair your capacity to benefit from others. B vitamin deficiencies are common in the United States.
  • Folate, as Methylfolate
    This formula provides methylfolate (MF, also known as methyltetrahydrofolate or MTHF), the most active form of the folate vitamin. Clinical trials at Harvard and elsewhere document MF's importance for healthy memory, mood and behavior. By directly receiving MF the consumer avoids the limitations of folic acid, a synthetic folate that is not well utilized and can interfere with healthy folate metabolism. But also, a common gene mutation (C677T) impairs the body’s capacity to convert food folates or folic acid into MF. By giving MF directly, this formula allows the brain and body to bypass the metabolic roadblock imposed by C677T.
    MF supplies methyl groups, which our cells need for making DNA and for regulating DNA activity within our genes (epigenetics). The brain especially needs MTHF for neurotransmitter production, for making the myelin insulation necessary for efficient nerve cell electrical conduction, and to make the sleep hormone melatonin. Further, availability of MF helps with the recycling of homocysteine, a metabolic product that can be brain-toxic. MF is readily depleted by smoking, alcohol, antacids, antibiotics, aspirin and other OTC painkillers, diuretics, estrogen hormone therapy, oral contraceptives, and anti-epileptic or other psychotherapeutic drugs. Women of reproductive age must be sure to get sufficient MF, because folate is essential for fetal brain development.
  • Vitamin B12, as Methylcobalamin
    Vitamin B12 deficiency is linked to problems with memory, concentration, and mood; trouble making decisions; and negative changes in personality and behavior. Plants don't make this vitamin, so that its levels can be low in vegetarians. Also, its absorption is highly complicated and vulnerable to blockade by antacids, histamine type 2 receptor blockers, and proton pump inhibitors. Certain antibiotics, anticonvulsants, and metformin also can deplete B12.
    Our key enzyme systems that use methylfolate to obtain methyl and recycle homocysteine also need vitamin B12, and methylcobalamin (methyl-B12), is its best dietary form. Most multiples supply vitamin B12 only as cyano-cobalamin, which contains potentially harmful cyanide. This formula's generous allowance of methyl-B12 helps ensure the brain will have sufficient methyl, even in consumers with the C677T mutation.
  • Vitamin B6
    Vitamin B6, most efficiently absorbed as pyridoxine and pyridoxal-5-phosphate, is essential for at least 100 enzymes that help the body utilize amino acids, fatty acids, and carbohydrates. It is vital for early brain development and for the brain's ongoing production of various neurotransmitters. Vitamin B6 also promotes disposal of potentially brain-toxic homocysteine by enhancing its conversion to very useful antioxidants.
  • Thiamin (Vitamin B1)
    Essential for the brain and other organs to process blood sugars and make energy. Even mild deficiency is linked to memory loss, confusion, irritability, and sleep problems. Alcohol abuse and obesity both can deplete thiamin reserves.
  • Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
    This vitamin is absolutely essential for energy production by the mitochondria, our tiny cell powerhouses. Its deficiency is linked to fatigue, personality change, and overall brain dysfunction. Enzyme systems that assimilate amino acids, carbohydrates and fats also rely on it. Riboflavin is very involved in healthy gene regulation and in the maintenance of antioxidant balance. It is essential for a key enzyme that maintains the major antioxidant glutathione within our cells. It is also linked to the recycling of homocysteine.
  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
    Deficiency of this vitamin features memory loss, paranoia, aggression, and anxiety. Niacinamide is a fully active form of Vitamin B3 that does not cause the uncomfortable niacin skin flush. It can be converted to NAD, a high-energy nutrient without which the mitochondria cannot make energy. NAD is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for enzymes that regulate gene actions. Niacinamide is easily depleted by excessive alcohol intake and by some contraceptive medications.
  • Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
    This vitamin is essential for our brain cells to make amino acids, proteins and hormones, metabolize fats into useful fatty acids, and to build cell membranes. Freezing, canning, and refining deplete this vitamin from foods. Deficiency is linked to nerve cells' loss of electrical insulation (demyelination), which can thoroughly impair mental performance.
  • Biotin
    This B vitamin is essential for energy, being built into the structure of several enzymes that our cells' mitochondria use to make energy. It is also vital for DNA integrity and for healthy gene regulation (epigenetics). Biotin deficiency is increasingly common in the U.S. population. Alcohol intake can deplete this vitamin, as can intestinal absorption problems, pregnancy and breastfeeding, and anticonvulsant drugs.
  • Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA)
    This vitamin-like nutrient is vital for blood sugar utilization and cellular energy production. Being naturally built into the structure of three key energy enzymes, ALA is essential for our cells to generate energy. It’s also a potent antioxidant. Clinical trials established its importance for nerve cell energetics and survival.
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ, Ubiquinone)
    This is a vitamin-like nutrient, called "conditionally essential" because some people can't make enough of it and must get additional supplies from their diet. CoQ is deeply embedded in the membranes of our mitochondria, working as an electronic energy shuttle molecule. It is also a potent antioxidant and very important for healthy heart function.
  • Vitamin A
    This powerhouse vitamin is essential for the brain to maintain its trillions of nerve cell connections (synapses). It is also crucial for the intestinal tract, vision, lung function, and immunity. This formula like other BrainMD products provides authentic vitamin A, not beta-carotene which many people have trouble to convert into functional vitamin A.
  • Vitamin C
    This much-talked about vitamin is highly concentrated in the brain and is essential for brain enzymes that regulate the neurotransmitters acetylcholine, dopamine, and norepinephrine. It is a very important brain antioxidant, an important cofactor for production of nerve cell electrical insulation (myelin), and helps ensure healthy blood flow to the brain. During the age of sea exploration, sailors who developed vitamin C deficiency (scurvy) often went insane.
  • Vitamin D3
    Earlier thought to be just a bone vitamin, vitamin D is vital for the brain and low levels are linked to memory problems. Dubbed "the sunshine vitamin” because sunshine powers the skin to make it, with very few people getting enough sunshine vitamin D deficiency is extremely common. The liver and kidneys routinely convert the vitamin into a powerful hormone that regulates some 900 genes, many of which are related to brain health. This formula provides D3, the most active vitamin D form—avoid D2 which can block vitamin D3's benefits.
  • Vitamin E
    This vitamin is the most important antioxidant protection for cell membranes, which are the sites wherein our most dynamic enzyme assemblies are located. Since the brain is highly enriched in cell membranes, vitamin E is a key brain protectant. This supplement provides the full spectrum of alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-tocopherol vitamin Es present in a healthy diet.
  • Vitamin K2, as Menaquinone-7 (MK-7)
    This vitamin activates proteins in the brain that support brain cell maturation, survival, and electrical conduction. It regulates calcium activity in the brain and elsewhere in the body, being very important to ensure this mineral forms hard deposits only in bone, teeth and nails, not in the brain and other soft tissues.
  • Iodine
    This mineral is essential for the thyroid gland to make hormones that largely set the pace of our metabolism and overall activity level, for the brain and other organs. Deficiency during pregnancy impairs healthy brain development. A 2017 Scottish study found older people with relatively low iodine intakes had greater brain volume shrinkage.
  • Zinc
    This mineral is essential for more than 300 enzymes involved in the metabolism of DNA, fats and carbohydrates, and is built into the "front-line" antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase. It is also essential for brain synapse activity and overall connectivity. In a European study, elderly people with higher blood zinc levels were found to have better memory performance.
  • Selenium
    Selenium is required by at least 25 enzymes and other “selenium proteins.” Among these are "front-line" antioxidant enzymes, as well as enzymes of epigenetic gene regulation. Selenium levels decrease with age, and older people with higher levels have shown better memory performance than those with lower levels. In China, individuals with very low selenium intake due to poor soils have low body selenium levels and are frequently memory-challenged.
  • Manganese
    This mineral is essential for a major antioxidant enzyme (SOD2, superoxide dismutase 2), found in all living things. In humans SOD2 is positioned within the mitochondria to neutralize oxygen free radicals as they are generated. Protection by SOD2 is crucial for the brain to work at a very high energy level without damaging the hippocampus, cortex or other regions involved with memory.
  • Molybdenum
    This mineral is required for at least five detoxification enzymes that work very closely with the body's antioxidant defenses. Molybdenum enzymes help neutralize sulfites and bisulfites, potentially toxic substances routinely generated in the body but also part of the diet–often sprayed onto foods and added into wines, vinegars, even into medical products as preservatives. Mutations in molybdenum enzymes are linked to problems with memory.
  • Boron
    This mineral supports the body's utilization of vitamin D and magnesium, nutraceuticals very important for healthy brain function. In a human study, controlled lowering of dietary boron intake impaired memory and attention functions.
  • Silicon
    This mineral supports connective tissue integrity, which the brain's blood vessels need for the wall strength and flexibility that ensures their efficient delivery of blood. Also, the brain's own connective tissue sets up important three-dimensional architecture for the nerve pathways of the hippocampus and other memory regions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this product different from BrainMD's other powerful nutraceutical combinations such as Brain & Body Power and Brain & Body Power MAX?
These two nutraceuticals are excellent for overall brain health, and can benefit memory. BBP MAX is the more potent of the two, comes in convenient packets of capsules, and many people have experienced memory benefits from taking it. But Bright Minds™ Memory Powder is laser-focused on memory. This product actually draws from the best clinically-proven memory ingredients in all the BrainMD products. And it gets around having to take lots of capsules!
Why doesn't the memory powder contain omega-3s?
Dr. Amen and his colleagues are very aware of the importance of omega-3 EPA and DHA for memory. Unfortunately, the current technology for mixing these oils into powders is very limited and very expensive. We recommend anyone taking the Bright Minds™ Memory Powder also take softgels of BrainMD's highly potent Omega-3 Power AND monitor their Omega-3 Index.
Why doesn't the memory powder contain N-Acetylcysteine (NAC)?
We just couldn't accommodate its sulfurous smell in the powder. NAC is very well proven for brain antioxidant protection and detoxification, and both our Brain & Memory Power Boost and Craving Control products provide NAC. Both are capsule products in which (fortunately) the capsule ingredients neutralize its smell.
How did you make this powder without using sugar?
We used a high-grade Stevia rebaudiana extract, plus a natural sugar-free orange flavor. The BrainMD team is committed to excluding sugar from our products.
What is the best way to take Bright Minds ™ Memory Powder?
Mix one scoop of Bright Minds Memory Power with at least 14 ounces of water, juice, or in a smoothie. Stir thoroughly before drinking and continue to stir as needed while you drink.
We recommend starting with a half scoop, twice daily; preferably after breakfast and lunch. After a week, move to one full scoop once daily, with a maximum two servings per day. Do not take Bright Minds in the evenings.
