Memory Hack comes from a Barbados based company called Raposo Fitness Enterprises, trading under the name Nutrition Hacks or Natural Nutrition Hacks. This company markets health products for a wide range of purposes, including toenail fungus and weight loss.
Memory Hack is an inferior, low-grade nootropic supplement, sold with some appalling advertising that claims it to be a cure for dementia. Don’t be fooled. Despite the lengthy sales text that some people may find convincing, this supplement will not cure dementia as claimed and the whole story about an ex-dementia sufferer who is now cured has been invented, just like everything else about this supplement. The main thing you need to know about Memory Hack is to avoid it.
Potential side effects include; increased blood pressure, stomach upset, sensitivity to sunlight, allergic reactions, nausea and vomiting, blurred vision, sweating, dehydration, heartburn, insomnia, and confusion.
Some of the ingredients contained in Memory Hack are known to interact with prescription medication, including heart disease medication and the contraceptive pill.
Memory Hack is expensive. You can only buy via the official website where it costs a whopping $69.00 for one bottle of 60 capsules.
You can buy three bottles for $177.00. Six bottles costs $294.00.
Here at the Watchdog, we see a lot of wild claims made by companies trying to sell their products. We have seen supplements claimed as the cure for cancer, homeopathic remedies which are supposed to work better than conventional medicine, we have seen pills to make you younger, more attractive, and more.
However, Memory Hack has just set a new benchmark for unbelievable claims. According to the advertising, Memory Hack cures and reverses dementia. Wow!
Memory Hack is sold via a one-page website and is in the form of one of those long sales letters that never seem to end. As you read you are drawn into the story of a woman called Michelle, who at the age of 59 cannot remember her own son. The story progresses through trials and tribulations, brain scans and Big Pharma, and the fear of dementia.
Finally, this woman, who claims to be a former dementia sufferer, says she is totally cured by taking this supplement.
It is easy to laugh at this nonsense, but the advertising is very cruel. According to so-called Michelle,
“You have 6 months before you become an incoherent, babbling, scared vegetable if you do nothing.”
If you have ever been in a position where you or a relative has been diagnosed with dementia, you will probably be pretty upset and angry by this cruel heartless and inaccurate description of a real medical condition.
We cannot find out much background to Raposo Fitness Enterprises. The Barbados address could be just a mailing address rather than a real office. We did find that the company, trading under the name Nutrition Hacks, market a range of pretty indifferent looking products for health which are sold via a network of affiliate marketing (affiliate marketing is where you advertise a company’s product on your website and get paid when someone buys via your link).
There are so many claims. The sales letter drones on and on with one unbelievable badly written fact after another, involving brain scans, the 9 year old son of a 59 year old woman (really?), nursing homes, the fear of turning into a vegetable, losing your mind in six months, and a black hole of indifference… we were beginning to feel this last point ourselves…
All this is bad but then in comes the Fear Factor. You are warned that simple signs of forgetfulness, like losing your keys or forgetting where you parked your car, is an early sign that you too will be in a nursing home and a “babbling vegetable” within months unless you act now (if this were really true, some of us at the Watchdog office would have been hauled off to the nursing home years ago).
So the answer is to buy this supplement… we got there in the end!
The basic claim is that Memory Hack will prevent you from getting Dementia and if you already have it, will cure the condition. The inference is that if you are worried about it, you probably already have it already. This will touch a nerve with many people.
First up, let’s look at some facts about Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia.
Dementia is not a specific disease. It is a term that describes a group of symptoms associated with a decline in thinking skills and memory. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, making up around 60-80% of all cases. It is a progressive disease and there is no cure, and it is the 6th leading cause of death in the USA. Although, as it is usually suffered by elderly people, age must be considered in this statistic.
Dementia is caused by damage to brain cells, and usually, the hippocampus is the first to be affected. The hippocampus controls learning skills and memory which is why the memory, especially short-term memory is affected. Scientists have not found a cure for dementia, although symptoms can sometimes be improved by treatment.
Experts suggest that diet, exercise, and good cardiovascular health may reduce the risk of dementia, but of course, even this is no guarantee against this condition. The simple truth is that research is ongoing and as yet there are no clear answers. Source
Memory Hack contains a blend of ingredients in unknown quantities. Some of these such as Huperzine A, a plant extract have been tested on dementia patients and in some cases, clinical testing has indicated improvements. There are some amino acids and vitamins, including vitamin B12 which again may have benefits. However there are concerns about potential side effects of some of the ingredients and there is a serious lack of ingredients information, such as how much of anything is actually contained in this supplement.
Who knows? A nootropic supplement that helps top up brain chemicals and strengthen neurons may help protect against cognitive diseases. It may help you feel more alert and have other benefits, but Memory Hack is not a reputable supplement. It is unlikely to improve mental functioning, and it certainly is not going to “cure” dementia as claimed.
If it did cure dementia, it would be the medical breakthrough of the century and not be on sale from a one-page dodgy website packed full of lies.
Containing ingredients that have been clinically tested and boasting a 30-day money-back guarantee, OmniMind is quickly rising to the top of the nootropic world.

On top of that, you can keep your bottles and you’ll even keep your bonuses. That’s how confident we are that this formula will do wonders for you.
You can even keep your bottles. Everyone gets a refund who asks for it for any reason, no questions asked.
You can only buy Memory Hack via the one-page product website, or via the Nutrition Hacks website.
We make no bones about it: Memory Hack really is the worst supplement we have seen in a long time. We hate that the advertising is cynically playing on people’s fears. We are not impressed by the underlying message that this supplement is the only thing to prevent you turning into an “incoherent, babbling, scared vegetable”, and it is obvious that the advertisers have no understanding whatsoever of dementia, science, or even common decency.
The supplement itself is fairly standard with some reasonable nootropic ingredients. However, with zero ingredients quantities provided and a massively overinflated price, we do not advise you to try it. There are plenty of better nootropics on the market, and although none of them will “cure” dementia because there is no cure, they may offer some benefits.
It is worth remembering that if there really was a cure for dementia, it would be the medical breakthrough of the century.
Overall, we do not recommend Memory Hack to the Watchdog readers.
