Xymogen MemorAll review

MemorAll Review Summarized

As the name suggests, MemorAll™ by Xymogen is a “unique” blend of nootropic ingredients that benefit your memory function. Its ingredients are natural and evidenced for the most part. The problem, though? Most of them are underdosed. Bacopa’s dosage is MemorAll is a mere 100mg per daily serving, whereas the optimal range is shown to be between 350-450mg. [1, 2, 3] Similar story is with Acetyl L-Carnitine, Resveratrol, and Phosphatidylserine. If these key ingredients were more effectively dosed, MemorAll would be an effective brain supplement. But for $54 per bottle (60 caps), you can easily find more potent natural nootropics.


  1. Contains some well-studied nootropics.
  2. Features memory enhancers like Huperzine A.
  3. Available on multiple websites.


  1. Several key ingredients are under-dosed and therefore have reduced or no effectiveness.
  2. Missing core nootropics, mainly Lion’s Mane Mushroom and CDP-Choline.
  3. Very few online reviews
  4. Poor value for the price

Xymogen MemorAll™ is a natural supplement made to enhance your cognition and memory. It contains a combo of B vitamins, herbs, and other nutrients that have been shown to benefit your brain pathways.

Some of the specific ways MemorAll is said to support your overall brain function is:

  • Supporting cytokine balance and oxidant function
  • Aiding in methylation
  • Contributing to optimal mitochondrial function
  • Promoting endocrine balance.

MemorAll comes in 60-ct bottles, with the recommendation of taking 2 capsules per day. Ideally with food as some ingredients are fat-soluble.


Okay, let’s have a closer look at what is inside MemorAll, how it can help your brain, and if the amount included is effective and safe.

MemorAll Ingredients

Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal 5′-phosphate) (5mg)

B6 is crucial for neurotransmitter synthesis. This is vital for brain cell communication. It also plays a role in supporting bright mood.

Folate (170mcg)

Folate or vitamin B9 is, again, an essential nutrient needed for mental and emotional health among other functions. It assists in DNA and RNA creation and works in partnership with vitamin B12 to produce red blood cells. Speaking of B12…

Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin) (100mcg)

We’ve already covered the importance of B12 for red blood cell synthesis, but this vitamin is also needed for healthy nerve function, and DNA synthesis. A deficiency can lead to memory problems and fatigue.

People who’re most at risk of low B12 levels are elderly or those on strict plant-based diets. Otherwise, much like with other B vitamins in MemorAll, you won’t notice much benefit. It’s better to get them through whole foods anyways as these are not the only B vitamins (there are 8 types).

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (as acetyl-L-carnitine HCI) (250mg)

Acetyl-l-carnitine (ALCAR) is an amino acid that helps your body make energy. It does this by shuttling fatty acids into mitochondria, miniature power factories of your cells.

ALCAR can pass the blood-brain barrier and enter into your brain, where it helps reduce brain fatigue and improve mental clarity.

The sad news is, optimal dosage for ALCAR is between 600-2700mg per day, and MemorAll only has 250mg.

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (100mg)

Don’t let the complicated lab-sounding name scare you off. Maybe you’ve already heard of it. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine, or NAC for short, is simply an amino acid.

This one acts as an antioxidant, protecting your cells from damage. Some people might get side effects from it sadly, such as brain fog. Talk about the irony!

Ginkgo Extract (Ginkgo biloba)(leaf) (60mg)

Ginkgo is a tree native to China. Its leaves contain Ginkosides which are its active compounds shown to improve brain blood flow and protect neurons.

Ginkgo is not one of our favorite nootropic compounds because studies haven’t shown reliable and consistent benefits. Additionally, there may be a small risk of side effects.

With that said, the dosage of Ginkgo in MemorAll is, again, too low. The doses of 120-240mg are more effective.

Bacopa Extract (Bacopa monnieri)(whole plant) (50mg)

Bacopa is an adaptogen herb, meaning, it helps your body adapt to stress. It is best known, however, for improving memory. It does this by enhancing the very structure of your brain cells and their connections.

The dose of 50mg per day is far too low compared to the studied optimal amount of 300mg.

Phosphatidylserine (15mg)

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a fat naturally occurring in your brain. As a supplement, PS is the only FDA-approved nootropic that we’re aware of.

PS has no obvious or immediate benefits. However, over time as you supplement it, it protects protect brain cells and enhances their communication. It’s beneficial to your memory, mood, and stress. Effective dosages are between 100-300mg per day.

trans-Resveratrol (1mg)

Potent antioxidants found in grape. Its neuroprotective and can interfere with beta-amyloid protein fragments, which are considered one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s.

Resveratrol has poor oral absorption so dosages of 5-10mg per day are the minimum what’s needed to have optimal effectiveness.

Huperzine A (100mcg)

This compound is derived from the Chinese club moss plant, and has neuroprotective qualities. It also helps to boost acetylcholine, brain chemical needed for proper memory functioning. Huperzine A may need to be cycled.

Thoughts on the Formula (Anything Missing?)

Most of the ingredients in MemorAll are what we would recommend to anyone looking to improve their brain function and mental clarity. The problem is their low dosages. They just won’t be as effective as an optimally dosed supplement.

Taking it a step further, MemorAll could benefit from other proven brain health ingredients, such as Lion’s Mane Mushroom and L-Tyrosine. These help with mental clarity and focus in cognitively demanding situations.

Fact-Checking Claims

MemorAll™ says it supports cognitive function and a healthy memory. Let’s fact-check these claims based on the ingredients we just saw.

  1. Supporting Cognitive Function: Partially correct. Ginkgo Biloba, Acetyl-L-Carnitine and the likes can do that. However, low dosages of these ingredients result in sub-optimal effects, or no effects at all.
  2. Healthy Memory: Correct. Bacopa monnieri and Phosphatidylserine are both shown to support memory. Again, though, their dosages here are so low that it’s questionable whether they will be effective at all.
  3. Antioxidant Activity: Correct. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine and trans-Resveratrol do provide antioxidant benefits, so no complaints on that front.
  4. Neurological Health: Correct. Basic B-vitamins are essential for neurological health and the other supporting herbs, even though they may be in low dosages, should support your mental function to at least a small extent.

As you can see, the claims made by MemorAll actually make a lot of sense. They would be much stronger though if they were backed by optimally-dosed ingredients.

People’s Experiences

Very few of them exist. There are a limited number of reviews of MemorAll online. Based on our research of its ingredients, we don’t like this supplement nor would use it personally.

Recommendation for Different Groups

Whether you’re a student, working professional, or a senior, we can’t recommend you MemorAll simply because it costs too much for what it offers. The price itself isn’t a problem, it’s how much of each ingredient you’re getting for that price. And it’s not much.


Depending on where you purchase it, MemorAll costs around $54 for a bottle of 60 capsules. If you follow the recommended 2-pills-per-day, one bottle will last you a month.

The Bottom Line

MemorAll by Xymogen is a decent nootropic stack that touches upon some key areas of brain function. The formula is tainted by the lack of other proven ingredients and more worryingly, its underdosed ingredients.

You may experience some degree of memory and concentration enhancement, but MemorAll falls shorts of being a top-tier nootropic stack.
