The Alpha Brain comment in your post spurred me to order some for the woman I am concerned may be developing early dementia. (She has been taking Prevagen, and recently we tried MSM/Glutathione (as a less smelly DMSO) to help remedy her mind. The IV was wildly successful, in my opinion, bringing near normalcy the next day. But we have a problem that the MSM clogs the microfilter, leading to 5-6 hours IVs.)
A thought had occurred that it might just be the extra water in the IV that helped her so much. The doc doubted this, but I fear she is dehydrated because she is afraid to drink a lot, for fear of peeing all the time. (She had even seen a regular GP looking for something that would make her pee less often. Nothing was prescribed..)
Yesterday she tried 1 Alpha-Brain (after some encouragement) and later she mentioned that she had noticed two things. A) She was constantly thirsty, and B) she had not peed all day (as is per her usual.)
It is known that the brain needs water, and that dehydration can cause all sorts of brain and mental issues.
If this apparent hydration effect after one pill is real, it would explain a great deal! The effect reported testing this supplement may very well be, at least in part, from the hydration achieved by increasing thirst/water retention.
Has anyone else using Alpha Brain noticed anything similar - thirst with water retention?
Hmm, well, get the pills, not the mix.
Their ingredients list is notable, as the capsule itself is the 1st inactive ingredient! Meaning the 2nd, moltodetrin is negligible!
Astounding to their credit.
The powder is mostly that & the steiva make worse.
Some say the other Brain, myco brand is better yet while only the above mix do I have experience with, trying out the Myco causes dizziness, confirmed by some reviews.
Not so with even bad mix.
