Brief Summary:
Brain Pill™ is a mental health enhancing and successfully marketed dietary supplement.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Memory Dysfunction Mood Disorders Dietary Supplement: Brain Pill Dietary Supplement: Placebo Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Brain Pill™ is a mental health enhancing and successfully marketed dietary supplement with a balanced composition of scientifically proven nutrients for accelerating and restoring brain function and thereby enhancing the cognitive performance and creating positive impact on behavioral outcomes.Hence the aim of the study is assessment of the effects of Brain Pill supplementation on memory performance in healthy adults with subjective memory complaints.

It is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled , single centered study to access the efficacy of Brain Pill on working memory capacity and mild mood disturbances.

Effect of Brain Pill on working memory capacity will be accessed by improvement in mean response time and accuracy measured by working memory battery from baseline to end of the study. Effect of Brain Pill is also accessed on Neurophysiological improvement in working memory as measured by electroencephelogram (EEG) from baseline to end of the study. Also improvement in attention and concentration will be accessed from baseline to end of the study by Picture recognition test.

Effect of Brain Pill on mood disturbances will be accessed by Brunel Universal Mood State.
