Optim Memory is a dietary supplement combining Bacopa monnieri (Bacognize®) and optimised curcumin (Longvida®).
These two ingredients, which come from Ayurvedic medicine:
– play a part in improving concentration, attention, and memory
– help to both maintain a clear mind and improve mental energy.
Bacopa is an adaptogenic plant that naturally helps to improve cognitive capacities, particularly attention, concentration, and active memory.
The Bacopa extract used in the Optim Memory formulation has been validated by two clinical trials carried out on student volunteers and persons aged 50 or over.
Bacosides, the main active components of Bacopa, have a positive effect on neurotransmitters. In particular, they increase:
– the level of serotonin, which is involved in the process of memorisation.
– the level of acetylcholine, the main neurotransmitter responsible for memory and learning
– and the level of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which plays an important role in preventing prolonged excitation of the neurons in adults.
The curcumin used in Optim Memory was developed by a group of scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles. Clinical studies have demonstrated that Longvida’s formulation increases the bioavailability of curcumin in its active (free) form, a form which is able to pass through the blood-brain barrier.
A study carried out by Swinburne University demonstrated that Longvida curcumin significantly improves working memory and reduces mental fatigue.

There are however a few precautions you might take.
As relevant data on its use during pregnancy and lactation is lacking, Curcuma longa can not be recommended in these cases.
Because curcumin was found to stimulate the gall bladder, the use of curcumin or turmeric is contraindicated in a person with obstruction of the biliary tract (WHO Monograph).
Consult your doctor or pharmacist in case of concomitant use of anticoagulants.
It is advisable to follow the recommended doses, and have a diverse and balanced diet as well as a healthy lifestyle. Keep out of reach of children. Keep in a dry place.
