MemoProve from Xediton is a natural health product formulated to support memory in cases of age-related memory loss. It contains amino acids which mimic nerve growth in an ordinarily functioning brain.
We investigated MemoProve to see whether it really does improve symptoms of memory problems in older people.
MemoProve contains N-PEP-12, a patented blend of neuropeptides produced from purified nerve cell proteins. These protect neurons in the brain and help them regenerate.
You don’t need a prescription for MemoProve.
One pack of 30 MemoProve tablets costs $49.95 (not including shipping and handling) but there are two other options for you to save when buying multiple packs.
If you buy 3 packs at one time, you save 21%. Buying 6 packs at one time saves you 25%. Shipping and handling remain at $9.95 no matter how many packs you buy.
We’re not too sure what clinically tested N-PEP-12 really is: the website tells us that it’s produced ‘enzymatically from purified nerve cell proteins and consists of peptone-based neuropeptides’.
Since MemoProve is classified ‘not suitable for vegetarians’ it makes us wonder just where – or who – or what – those purified nerve cell proteins come from in the first place.
And as for the certification, why should a Canadian company’s manufacturing process be inspected and certified by the Austrian Ministry of Health?
We’re also more than a little overwhelmed by the sales pitch at the bottom of just about every page on the MemoProve website. Yes, they’ve got to sell their product somehow, but we get the impression those web pages are there more to get an order out of us than to give us information. Well, at least it looks that way to us.
So because of all those reasons, we’re going to reject MemoProve because we’re spending a lot of money and waiting a long time before we feel the benefits of those mysterious ingredients – one which the website feels like it really, really wants us to buy.
MemoProve is claimed to benefit all adults with mild memory problems, people who are stressed, overworked and sleep-deprived and anyone looking to improve overall cognitive function.
It does so thanks to its patented blend of neuropeptides. They’re small chains of amino acids which mimic nerve growth in a brain that functions normally.
How to Take MemoProve
You just need to take one MemoProve tablet once a day, with or without a meal.
These neuropeptides counteract the degeneration brought on by the ageing process by providing support for the brain neurons, protecting them and helping them to regrow.
- Their website is such a hard sell.
- A Canadian company – with an Austrian certification?
- It could take 30 days before noticing any benefit.
What Does MemoProve Claim To Do?
- Improve short term memory
- Increase ability to concentrate
- Raise alertness
- Improve ability to retain new information
- Renew confidence in memory
- Improve mental sharpness and clarity
Does MemoProve Work?
Maybe. Maybe not: we’re told the formula itself is clinically researched in double-blind placebo-controlled trials. There were three memory tests, and ‘significant improvement was observed in two of the tests’, which makes us wonder about test number 3.
After a month using MemoProve, overall 90% of participants showed improvement in terms of memory, concentration, learning and well-being. Which sounds reassuring until you look again and discover those 90% were actually 18 participants out of 20.
What Are The Ingredients of MemoProve?
- N-PEP-12™ (90 mg): A derivative of cerebrolysin, a brain-derived neuropeptide compound that has been approved for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease in several countries.

Does MemoProve Have Any Side Effects?
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, the amino acid chains in MemoProve are considered GRAS (Generally Recognised as Safe).
We haven’t found any evidence of side effects, and we’re told that if you’re taking vitamins MemoProve won’t interfere with them.
MemoProve is intended for adults 18 years of age or older. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult with their healthcare practitioner prior to using this product.
It is not suitable for vegetarians.
Are There Any Customer Reviews For MemoProve?
On Amazon? There are only two reviews we’ve found that we think are for the genuine article. One of them (three stars) from back in April 2015 reads,
Still early for an intelligent opinion… Thanks.
and it’s difficult not to think everyone else might just have, er, forgotten to add theirs.
Then again, we’ve found some really upset Amazon reviewers who were seriously disturbed about ordering what they thought was MemoProve, but which proved to be something completely different when it was delivered, so online shoppers – beware.
Does MemoProve Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?
We thought perhaps we’d find some details when we clicked on the ‘Delivery & Returns’ link. Well, it would be a logical place to find any, but the only thing we saw on that page was the standard ‘MemoProve Special Offers’ like on all the other pages on that website.
But then again, on their ‘Terms and Conditions’ page there actually is a 30-day money-back guarantee, which offers customers the chance to contact customer services for a refund (less shipping and handling, of course).
We wonder whether that’s really appropriate, considering that it takes up to 30 says to start feeling much of the benefit.
Where Can I Buy MemoProve?
Ordering online is a cinch: just go to any page on the MemoProve website and you’ll find an order link.
You can save $37.49 if you buy a three-month supply at one time, or nearly $90 if you order six packs at once. Strangely enough, you can also save ten dollars if you only buy one single pack, which makes us wonder about their pricing policy.
It’s also available in stores – at least it is in Canada – and yes, you can find it on Amazon, but we haven’t found any trace of it on eBay. Yet.
