Why did you Replace Neuro-Natural Recall?
Think Sharp is a solution that is more convenient (fewer capsules), has a lower price point, and uses a new proven ingredient, Sage extract, which was previously unavailable.
How long will it take to work?
We're using an ingredient called Sibelius™:Sage, which starts to work within one hour of taking the supplement, so people should really feel an almost immediate boost to their thinking. The other ingredients are really designed to build up and provide cumulative benefits over a longer time frame so say within one month. Individual results may vary.
When should I take the product?
Take two capsules per day, either with or without food. We strongly recommend taking it during the day rather than just before going to sleep because the Sibelius™:Sage extract does kick in within the first hour. Most people want to be feeling sharp, good and on form during the day and rest their brain at night.
Can I take this product if I am on medication?
There is a very real risk around taking this alongside some other specific medications. People who have Alzheimer's disease are sometimes prescribed a class of drugs called acetylcholinesterase inhibitors which block a particular enzyme, and the result of that is that you have more of that enzyme called acetylcholine in your brain and also in your peripheral nervous system, so in your muscles and mediating signals to your heart your pupils. Do not take it together with any other acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. Always seek medical advice before starting a new supplement.
Can I take a double dose for extra effectiveness?
When additional support is needed, the dose can be increased to 4 capsules per day. Do not exceed 4 capsules per day.
Are there any side effects?
The ingredients have been linked to occasional mild side effects, including gastrointestinal problems and headaches, but all of the ingredients in Think Sharp are both safe and effective. If you experience any mild side effects that you're concerned about, you should seek medical advice or stop taking the supplement.
This product shares some ingredients with Total Balance. Can they be taken together?
Yes, they can certainly be taken together.
This product shares many benefits with Omega 3 fish oil. Which should I be taking?
We suggest you take both because they complement and reinforce each other because they work in slightly different ways.
We highly recommend everyone take DHA and our Xtend-Life fish oil blends have a high content of it. There are some really good long-term studies showing that supplementation with DHA is protective against the development of dementia, but we haven't seen any studies published showing that taking DHA or any fish oil has an immediate and short-term effect on the sharpness of thinking.
Why are the doses of Sage in Think Sharp lower than those in some of the clinical trials?
Levels of Sibelius™:Sage in some trials are 333 mg and Think Sharp has 167mg; there are two reasons for this.
Firstly, Sibelius™:Sage and huperzine work by the same mechanism (they boost the levels of acetylcholine in the brain and body), so if we used both, the higher levels of Sage could end up doubling the impact and have potential side effects.
Secondly, a 167 milligrams daily dose of Sibelius™:Sage has still been clinically proven to improve working memory, speed of processing, memory recall and a number of other memory domains.
Is it safe to take sage long-term?
Yes, the only issue is Thujones which are present in Sibelius Sage. The upper limit for daily consumption of Thujones is 6mg per day. Sibelius™:Sage contains thujones at a very low level (not more than 0.1%). A daily dose of 167mg Sibelius™:Sage that's in Think Sharp would deliver 0.167mg thujones, which is well below the upper daily limit for this substance.
