As we age, we lose proteins that support our brain. Quincy Bioscience Prevagen supplements these proteins during the natural process of aging. Quincy Bioscience Prevagen (apoaequorin) is clinically shown to help with mild memory problems associated with aging. Quincy Bioscience Prevagen contains apoaequorin, a protein which uniquely supports critical brain functions. In clinical studies Quincy Bioscience Prevagen improved memory within 90 days.
Most commonly reported benefits of Quincy Bioscience Prevagen are:
- Overall improved mental clarity
- Clearer thinking
- Better concentration
- Greater ability to focus
Apoaequorin (Pronounced: a-poe-e-kwôr-in) was first discovered in 1962 in glowing jellyfish. Turns out these proteins caused the jellyfish to glow when the proteins bound to calcium ions. They've learned a lot about how calcium functions in the body by using apoaequorin. The Princeton professor who discovered this protein and his colleagues who helped develop the research won the Nobel prize in 2008. Prevagen does not cause any glowing!
Apoaequorin is a protein
It was originally found in jellyfish, nature's most simple nervous system and is able to help in humans who have the most complex nervous system in all creation. Apoaequorin is classified as a protein. Proteins are needed for healthy brain function.
Apoaequorin supports healthier brain function.*
Frequently Asked Questions
Since Prevagen is a unique brain health supplement, they've provided answers to some of the most frequently asked questions you may have.
What is Prevagen?
Prevagen (Pronounced: prev-uh-gen) is a new brain health supplement and functions unlike other brain or memory supplements.* Prevagen's main ingredient is a new use for a well-known protein called "apoaequorin" which was originally found in a certain species of jellyfish.
Prevagen has been clinically tested and shown to improve mild memory problems that occur in aging.*
What are the most commonly reported benefits of Prevagen?
- Improves absentmindedness*
- Improves memory*
- Helps with mild memory problems associated with aging*
How long will it take to feel results?
Daily use for 30-90 days is a reasonable length of time to experience results.
Do they have research supporting Prevagen?
Yes. A recent memory study showed Prevagen significantly supported cognitive function compared to placebo.*
Can I take Prevagen with my current medication(s)?
While Prevagen has no known interactions it is always safe to talk with your doctor before beginning a new course of supplementation.
Are there any side effects with Prevagen?
Prevagen is safe and well-tolerated. Apoaequorin, the main ingredient in Prevagen, has been deemed safe enough to be a food ingredient.
I haven't heard of 'apoaequorin' before?
Researchers sure have! Apoaequorin (Pronounced: a-poe-e-kwôr-in) was discovered in the early 1960's when scientists wondered why a certain species of jellyfish glowed in the Puget Sound (Washington state). They discovered that when the protein apoaequorin, contained in the jellyfish, bound to calcium, a light was emitted. Today, because of apoaequorin's long-history and safety, it is a preferred research tool. Don't worry though, glowing is not a side-effect with Prevagen!
What is the role of jellyfish in Prevagen?
The main ingredient in Prevagen™ is "apoaequorin", which was originally discovered in jellyfish. Prevagen™ is now made in a controlled scientific process developed by university researchers and scientists in Madison, Wisconsin.
Are jellyfish harmed in the making of Prevagen?
No. The protein originally from the jellyfish is now grown in a safe and controlled manufacturing process.
Does Prevagen contain any allergens?
Prevagen™ is non-allergenic. The active ingredient "apoaequorin" is a protein from a jellyfish which is non-allergenic and interestingly, a jellyfish is not truly a fish. People with fish allergies need not worry. Also, Prevagen™ is made with a vegetarian capsule and non-allergenic inactive ingredients, including a gluten-free rice flour filler.
Should I continue to take my vitamin and mineral supplements with Prevagen?
Absolutely. Prevagen™ is not meant to replace this type of supplementation. However, Prevagen™ works in a manner unlike any other supplements to help protect brain cells. Prevagen™ works in a complementary way to vitamin and mineral supplementation.
What are all the asterisks (*) for?
The asterisk (*) denotes the FDA disclaimer for dietary supplements. This statement or "disclaimer" is required by law (DSHEA) when a manufacturer makes a structure/function claim on a dietary supplement label. In general, these claims describe the role of a nutrient or dietary ingredient intended to affect the structure or function of the body. The manufacturer is responsible for ensuring the accuracy and truthfulness of these claims; they are not approved by FDA. For this reason, the law says that if a dietary supplement label includes such a claim, it must state in a "disclaimer" that FDA has not evaluated this claim. The disclaimer must also state that this product is not intended to "diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease," because only a drug can legally make such a claim.

Aging and how Prevagen™ can help
In the United States, 10,000 baby-boomers turn 50 every day. And although a touch of gray hair can look distinguished, there are other age-related issues that may be unwanted, such as the mild memory problems associated with aging.
Your brain is made up of many small cells, and controls everything you do. To stay healthy your brain contains proteins that support brain health.
As we age, the body's ability to naturally produce this protein slows down. When this happens you begin to lose about 30,000 brain cells every day, and may start to experience difficulty with memory, focus and concentration. Prevagen helps support brain cells by supplementing the proteins and supports healthier brain function.*
