Our incredible Mother is a beautiful 90 years old and has been diagnosed with mild dementia. We have researched & tried just about every natural supplement that claims to be "THE one to take" ... well, THIS product is indeed the one to take!! It has not only enhanced her memory, but has wonderful, surprising effects in her energy, focus, and drive! While it hasn't made her a 40-year-old again (I would be ordering bottles for me!), it has truly made a vast improvement in her day-to-day life .. with absolutely no adverse side effects. (This we watch very, very closely and have also asked her neurologist before adding this to her daily routine.) 1 Body's Brain Support is absolutely incredible - and an absolute God send! While everyone's body is different, we can attest to, and are grateful for the results this product has provided our Mother. We sincerely appreciate the folks at 1 Body and their innovative research and delivery of Brain Support. May God bless you and your efforts ~
My go to line has always been "too many concussions" whenever I've forgotten someone's name or an important event I should've remembered. As a stunt man I get the bump on the head occasionally that messes with the memory once more. As a stand up comedian I would worry at times that the memory required to deliver a 20 to 30 minute monologue could some day slip. I'm not worried so much anymore. I've been taking this supplement for a couple weeks now and I can already tell a difference. Words that once eluded me come trippingly off the tongue. Whereas I once walked around in a cloudy haze on certain days, a clarity has returned. Too many naps on the couch no longer occur either because I feel like I have more energy. Tremendously grateful to have found a product that somehow returns me to my younger days when all things came more easily!!
Beware! This product should not be on the Amazon's Choice list because of very serious QC/QA issues, lack of a Certificate of Analysis from a Third Party testing Lab, no Phone or Customer Service Contact, and failure of the Company to return my calls in 30 days to their Answering Service in PA, or respond to my email which requested they call me URGENTLY. They are supposedly located in NV. I have my doubts they are actually a company with inventory as much as a MLM startup trying to get in on the lucrative Nootropics Craze. Well Nootropics are dangerous enough without mystery pills and poor blending, packaging, and verifiable documentation. The 2 bottles I received contained 2 Completely different Pills, 1 Large Dark-flecked brownish, bluish-black pills, and the other Much smaller off-white pills with some flecks. Pill Counts and bottle weights were different/wrong: 1 with 80, the other 93 when they were supposed to be 90 pills. This startup Co, 1Body, has been a nightmare for me. I have taken and take each of the additives as individual pure caps, gels, or powders. That way you can cycle what you want and not build a tolerance. I liked this formulation from a cost-effective point for the Alpha-GPC/Lion's Mane/Bacopa and I broke my rule of not buying dry-blended complex Nootropics because it is theoretically not possible to get a homogeneous dry capsule mix of 13 different additives. If these were innocuous vitamins it would be less risky. However, these are powerful Nootropics and in the case of Huperzine A it builds up in the body and has to be cycled. Huperzine-A should always be taken alone because it is so potent in very small doses and an overdose is VERY SERIOUS. It is synergistic with the other cholinergics and it can result in seizures, incontinence, and worse. Every pill is supposed to have only trace amounts in micrograms. Tell me how you do that with a dry 13 component blend that is in capsules that are mass produced? It is more cost-effective, safe, and reliable to buy pure products rather than mixes or blends where you never know what quality or concentration you are getting. It is also very important that the pill counts be right. Stick with reputable companies that have 3rd Party Testing Certificates of Analysis.
Actual Experience: I got the first Bottle of the Dark/Large Pills on a Fri 11/2 and the Second Bottle of White pills on Sunday 11/4. I took 3 of the dark pills on Sat and got agitated and had a headache. I had been taking all of the additives individually. When I got the second Bottle it looked different and the weight was lighter. That is when I opened it and was alarmed they were completely different.
1Body also includes a coupon for a Free Bottle in Every Box. So Where is the Customer Support? What did you send me and when will you take it back, replace, and refund my money.

Hello & please Help: Multiple Problems with Order for 2 Bottles of "Brain Support": Wrong Pill Counts & 2 Different Pills Dear 1 Body Support Team, I have called your answering service 3 times over the last 12 hours and spoken to Amy, Kia, and Shane. I received 2 bottles of your Brain Support pills, ordered on Amazon, one last Friday and one on Sunday. I opened one bottle and took 2 pills on Saturday. The pill effect and pill count seemed off. I counted the pills and there were only 80. I opened the second bottle, which felt different, to compare counts and they were entirely different pills. The number of pills is 93. First Bottle: Large Dark-flecked brownish, bluish-black pills: #80 Second Bottle: Much smaller off-white pills with some flecks: #93 I am very concerned and you should be too. I absolutely do not know what you sent me and the whole thing is a mess. You definitely have some QC/QA issues that could be harmful to people. I hope you respond ASAP and that you recall any items that could be the wrong count and content. I was so impressed with your formulation that I ordered 2 bottles. Now I am distressed. Help.
This my first review on Amazon.com after years of purchasing products on this site. Anyway, I've been working at a warehouse for the past 11 months and heavily rely on my short-term memory for counting & memorizing numbers quickly, as well as maintaining a high level of focus as we work with medical products and mistakes and errors are costly. Before I started taking 1 Body's Brain Support Supplement, I heavily relied on taking caffeine daily whether in the form of energy shots or pills, so much so that I reached a tolerance for it (>400mg of caffeine per day) after many months of taking it. I would sometimes if not often, feel dehydrated from taking caffeine, which is also a diuretic. Because of that very reason, I would sometimes, if not often, have to leave work for restroom breaks, which is not good at all on the job. Caffeine's effects on my body had become overall inconsistent overtime and my reliance on it was mostly unhealthy so I started looking at other products online that were healthier, natural, and more efficient alternatives to caffeine for my purposes. After doing some research on nutrients, herbs, and other "brain-food products", I settled on 1 Body's Brain Support Supplement, primarily for its blend of Alpha GPC & Huperzine-A. Ginkgo Biloboa Extract and the rest of the ingredients in the supplement are also pluses. Honestly, though, I will say this: I admit that I was a bit hesitant to make the purchase of this product primarily because there just weren't a lot of reviews of it on Amazon compared to several other supplements that had ton of reviews. Yes, I had some doubts about purchasing this stuff, even after doing research on some the ingredients in the supplement just wondering if it would actually work. To my surprise, this supplement is actually pretty amazing! Over the past 2 weeks of taking 1 Body's Brain Support Supplement, my short-term memory is a lot sharper, I have been able to process numbers much faster at work and I am able to think a lot more clearly. Overall, I love this stuff! It really has been making a difference in the quality of my production at my job. I will absolutely be purchasing more of this supplement in the near future. - Phil P.
This appears to be a good quality supplement with well-balanced ingredients. However, please be careful taking it if you have mild depression like I do. I believe this supplement worsened my symptoms. I did a lot of research after I stopped taking it and discovered that many people with depression have issues with a biochemical process called methylation. Methylation affects the expression of DNA in every cell of the human body and directly influences the regulation of mood-related neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin. The human body requires a careful balance of acetyl and methyl sources to keep its epigenetic processes in balance. Brain Support contains ingredients that help tend to boost the acetyl side of that equation. Many people with depression are undermethylated, however, which means that the methylation balance is already out of whack. I think this helps to explain the source of my depression, as well as why this supplement appeared to have been unhelpful or harmful to my symptoms. If you have depression, I would highly recommend that you get your methylation status checked (SAMe/SAH ratio) before starting to take this supplement or any supplement containing choline, folates, and so forth.
I noticed the difference within a few days of taking brain support. It really was quite amazing. I had brain fog before, just not feeling sharp or energetic. I have more energy and my thinking and cognitive processes are sharp. This is hard to explain. It's like my mind was full of cotton and now it is full of fresh air. I know that sounds strange, but it is really the only way I know to explain it. I love this product, am so happy I ordered, and will continue to buy it! I recommend it to everyone!
I ordered a second bottle of Brain Support after loving my experience with the 1st bottle. The capsules came looking very different from the first. The first capsules were white and healthy looking, the second bottle came with black capsules and they were expanded and weeping.
I have tried to contact the company several times, only to receive an answering service time and time again, no one ever responds to emails or phone calls.
