What is Memoprove?
Memoprove is marketed towards older people for the purpose of helping to improve memory function during cognitive decline. It’s produced by a Canadian company named Xedition Pharmaceuticals, which makes two other products; one for arthritis and another for leukaemia.
Memoprove is not a stack; it simply contains a blend of amino acids called neuropeptides, which are patented under the name N-PEP-12.
These neuropeptides allege to combat the ageing process by supporting, protecting and regenerating neurons in the brain, and if we’re to believe Memoprove’s advertising, they’re backed by clinical studies, which show that they’re able to improve memory performance and cognitive function in 30 days.
According to Memoprove’s website, Memoprove can reverse the effects of 10 years of memory decline by providing:
- Improved short term memory
- Better concentration
- A higher state of alertness
- Improved ability to retain new information
- Improved mental sharpness and clarity
Who is Memoprove for?
The main target market for Memoprove is people over 60, but the website states that it can be beneficial for anyone over the age of 18 who’s looking to improve their memory and cognitive function.
Pregnant or nursing mothers should consult a doctor before taking Memoprove. It’s not suitable for vegetarians as the neuropeptides are sourced from pork, although we had to do some digging to find that information. We’d appreciate more honesty from the manufacturers on this part.
One Memoprove capsule contains 90g of N-PEP-12 (Peptones) as the sole active ingredient.
Other ingredients include lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, cellulose acetate phthalate, triethyl citrate, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, talcum, titanium dioxide, synthetic paraffin.
There are absolutely no stimulants in Memoprove, and its manufacturing adhered to strict quality control guidelines under GMP and the Austrian Ministry of Health according to the website.
What is N-PEP-12?
Memoprove’s website repeatedly mentioned clinical trials which have been conducted on the neuropeptides it contains but doesn’t provide any links to such studies. They simply mention that they proved that N-PEP-12 does the following:
- Improves memory function, alertness, and concentration
- Supports optimal brain health and function
- Replenishes age related neurochemical deficits
- Stimulates new brain cell production
- Protects existing brain cells and connections
- Increases energy production in the brain.
- Boosts mental performance
These benefits all sound great, but without any solid evidence of them, we have to take them with a pinch of salt, and we suggest you do, too.
Memoprove Side Effects and Safety
There seem to be no concerns about the safety of Memoprove as N-PEP-12 is generally regarded as safe (GRAS). There are no known side effects and it is generally well-tolerated, although this could very well be due to a lack of research. As always, you should consult a doctor before taking a supplement like Memoprove.
There are only a few reviews for Memoprove on Amazon, but all of them are negative, and some of them report it to be a scam.
Other review sites don’t seem to have anything good to say about it either, and one going as far as to call it ‘garbage’. This was enough to put us off. If a product really works, there will always be customers willing to back it up – but that doesn’t seem to be the case for Memoprove.
Memoprove is only available online, directly through the official website at $49.95 per box. One box contains 30 small-sized tablets.
Recommended dosage is one tablet per day, so one box is all you need for a month. You can save by buying in bulk; 3 packs are $142.36, and 6 packs are $269.73.
Even so, it works out very expensive to use Memoprove long-term, and we’re not sure that the high price is justified.
It was previously sold on Amazon, but that no longer appears to be the case.
Shipping costs $9.95 and there is a only 30 day money back guarantee for anyone who’s not satisfied with their results.
The idea of slowly losing our memories as we get older is terrifying, and Memoprove was manufactured to take advantage of that fear rather than to provide a solution to it.
Contrary to Memoprove’s repeated claims, there is minimal evidence to prove that neuropeptides are effective in increasing brain health when taken orally rather than intravenously, as they are broken down by the digestive process before reaching the brain. Therefore, we can’t confidently say that you can expect noticeable positive results.
Memoprove appears to be overpriced compared to other supplements, and under-researched, and for that reason we’d advise you look at other options.
