    i have used this supplement for servral months. i have noticed improved mental clarity and focus at the board allowing me to calculate long variations. i have stopped using it for a couple weeks now and noticed i am not as sharp, a little cloudy if you know what i mean. is this all in my head? has anybody else had similar results?

    I tried Ginkgo once before but did not really notice any benefits. It should be good for longevity though.

    It is called the placebo effect.

    When I tried Ginseg for a while, people thought me as sharper, more energetic, without even knowing that I used it. Me myself only thought people became slower, not that I became faster.

    Now I go on Omega-3 and Vitamin B. But I don't know. I think that Placebo works as well.

    Omega 3 is great, I take daily.

    I take kids vitamins too since the adult vitamis are harsh on the stomach.

    I tried it for a while to improve concentration and memory. Problem was, I kept forgetting to take it...
