No, Prevagen is not a scam. Overall, Prevagen contains high-quality ingredients that should help improve brain health. However, using apoaequorin from jellyfish as a central ingredient is a bit of a gimmick.
It catches the user’s attention, but more research is needed to prove that the substance has all of the brain benefits that the manufacturer claims. On their website, the company presents three clinical studies, one of which demonstrates the product’s memory and cognitive benefits and the other two which concern product safety.
The fact that they conducted these studies is commendable, but we could use more studies and evidence to demonstrate Prevagen’s benefits. On the official website, there are some glowing videos and written reviews that claim this is a highly effective product.
Although the majority of Amazon reviews are positive, a few customers complained that they only received minor benefits.
