Have been combining Jarrow "Neuro Optimizer" with Planetary Formulas Bupleurum Calmative Compound (a.k.a. Happy Traveler by other makers) to great benefit for my father. Lowered anxiety + brain food has helped his overall function. Now almot 87 y.o., of my father he has had cognitive and short-term memory decline for 4-5 years. Initially "diagnosed" as Alzheimer's...which it is NOT. He has had functional benefit from: no prescription meds (A-cept made his feet burn and did not help), removal from MOLDY HOME, moved to stimulating community plus these supplements and others. TRIED MANY...this formula has several key ingredients WITHOUT the potential "over-stimulators" like phenylalanine, ginkgo, high niacin, and a few others which are more tricky...these ingredients are fine for some people but not for others. The relative simplicity of the N.O. formula is an advantage AND price/daily dose at about $1 compares to closer to $2/daily for over-complicated foirmulas.
A good product

My wife and I have been taking this product for over a month and both of us feel our memories are clearer and we are able to recall information more rapidly.
Seems good, but ...

because of the price I decided to go with straight phosphatidyl serine next time, instead of a complex, since I am mainly using it for cortisol control, not memory loss.

Been taking it for a month and I experience a lot of clarity from it. I also think it might have helped me with muscle recovery.

I have used this product for a while now and find that my brain function really improves with the use of Neuro Optimizer.
