Update 5/7/20. For the longest time, I thought Neora (formally Nerium International) was a skincare company. I had no idea Neora had supplements too – until I became aware of a brain formula supplement called EHT. This supplement is VERY different from other memory supplements I've seen and reviewed here. In this unbiased review (I don't work for the company), we will look at the science, research, and ingredients of Neora EHT. Does it improve memory and help concussions reduce the odds of getting dementia? These are some of the questions I'll address. Does it really work? Is it the real deal or a scam? Let's see what we can discover. Also see the Neora Fit Review
What Is Neora EHT?
From the website of the company that makes this supplement, we learn EHT for the brain it is “a mixture of bioactive molecules isolated from coffee that helps strengthen neural connections and promote optimal brain health.”
What does that mean?
That description is pretty vague but it sounds like Nerium EHT is supposed to help the brain work better. They used to call this a “mind enhancement formula” although that wording has since been removed from the company website. Anything that could help the brain work better might – in theory – lead to several health benefits ranging from improved memory to protection against dementia.
We'll address some of these issues in the sections below.
Nerium EHT Ingredients
According to the product website (Nerium.com) a box contains a 30-day supply. Taking 1 tablet of Nerium EHT has the following ingredients:
|Nutrient||Amount Per Serving||Percent Daily Value|
|Vitamin D (cholecalciferol)||2000 IU||500% DV|
|Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine HCL)||1.6 mg||80% DV|
|Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin)||10 mcg||167% DV|
|Magnesium (from 100 mg mag citrate)||16 mg||4% DV|
|Selenium (selenomethionine)||70 mcg||100% DV|
|Alpha lipoic acid||50 mg||N/A|
|EHT (proprietary coffee blend)||35 mg||N/A|
In the table above, “N/A” means there is no daily value for that particular nutrient.
While the product website says the product also contains sodium hyaluronate, this ingredient is not listed on the Supplement Facts label.
While vitamin B12 was originally present as cyanocobalamin, this has been changed to methylcobalamin. This is a trendy ingredient, but I don't see an advantage to it for most people.
Nerium EHT also has the following “other ingredients” listed. I’ve put them in order as they appear on the label:
- Dicalcium phosphate
- Microcrystalline cellulose
The tablet coating of the product is composed of :
- Polyvinyl alcohol
- Titanium dioxide (color)
- Vanillin (extract of a vanilla bean)
- Croscarmellose sodium
- Stearic acid
- Magnesium stearate
These other ingredients likely play no role in any benefits from the product.
Now, let's see if the EHT brain formula supplement has any memory research. After that, we'll look at the research on its ingredients.
Neora EHT Research
Does Nerium EHT have any proof that it really improves memory?
Searching clinical databases for studies revealed none.
No relevant investigations showed up.
- Likewise, the company website shows no studies either.
All this tells this reporter that no clinical evidence exists for this supplement.
Summary of Search Results:
- Pubmed.gov: no studies located
- ClinicalTrials.gov: no studies located
- Google search: no studies located
- Neora.com: no studies located
If there are clinical research studies on Nerium EHT and memory, they cannot be found.
That doesn't necessarily mean the product doesn't work. Rather, it just means nobody has tested it – yet. And that includes the Nerium company too. When those studies are conducted and published, I will update this review as I become aware of them.
To be clear, there is research on EHT – which is the namesake ingredient in this supplement. The research on EHT will be summarized below.
Let's look at the research on the ingredients in the Nerium EHT.
Neora EHT Ingredient Research
From the Ingredients list above, we can see that 1 tablet of Nerium EHT contains:
- Vitamin D 2000IU
- Vitamin B6 1.6 mg
- Vitamin B12 10 mcg
- Magnesium 16 mg
- Selenium 70 mcg
While these are all fine nutrients for healthy people, I'm not convinced they contribute anything significant to helping memory, dementia or the immune system etc., beyond what we might get in the diet naturally or in a regular multivitamin.
Of course, those who are not so healthy might benefit from these nutrients, but for the most part, a multivitamin and vitamin D supplement will cover these bases. As such, I won't cover the vitamins or minerals in this review.
If Nerium EHT really works, I think the answer lies with its other ingredients.
Let's look at those now.
Each tablet of Nerium EHT has 50 mcg of Huperzine. The scientific name for this herb is Huperzia Serrata. It is sometimes also called Chinese club moss or “Hup A.” Another name for Huperzine A is Selagine.
There have been several studies noting that Huperzine A may be of benefit to people with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. It might do this because Huperzine A appears to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine (say, uh-see-tul-co-lean) a chemical involved in memory. It does this by inhibiting an enzyme (called acetylcholinesterase) that is involved in the breakdown of acetylcholine.
In other words, by knocking out the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, the levels of acetylcholine in the brain rise and the chemical stays around longer. Theoretically, this might help boost memory.
Nerium EHT does appear to contain an amount of huperzine A (50 micrograms) that has been used in clinical trials. That is encouraging. Studies show that it may take 2-8 weeks before differences are noticed. This is a general rule, and I'm sure this would vary according to how bad the memory problems were, the medications people take, and other factors.
Do All Studies Say Huperzine Works?
No. Some research says huperzine may not work. This may be due to issues involved in purifying the Huperzine A compound and extracting it from the plant. Remember, plants contain thousands of different chemicals. Huperzine is only one of them.
Several of the studies appear to come from China. While they do appear to show Huperzine A may work, at least one study notes that because of problems with how some of the studies were conducted, caution and more research is needed.
Sometimes Huperzine A is touted to improve memory in healthy people without memory problems. But, I can only find one study. For me, one study is not enough evidence – yet – to say healthy people need it.
Huperzine A has been in other memory supplements, too such as:
See those reviews for more information.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha-lipoic acid may be in some diabetes and weight loss supplements. There does appear to be a connection between diabetes/insulin resistance and getting dementia. I've even seen Alzheimer's disease called “Type III diabetes” to drive this message home.
Thus, adding this alpha lipoic acid to a memory supplement does, in theory, make some sense. If we can reduce blood sugar levels, we might also reduce dementia.
But does alpha lipoic acid improve memory? More research is needed. One review of alpha lipoic acid dementia research found no good proof it helped people with memory issues.
One study has noted alpha lipoic helped memory, but this study seems to have problems with how it was conducted. Also, that study used 600 mg. Nerium EHT only has 50 mg.
Alpha-lipoic acid is also in the memory supplement Procera AVH. See that review for more information.
Here's alpha-lipoic acid on Amazon
The EHT molecule is an ingredient in the Nerium EHT supplement. The EHT molecule is derived from coffee and is a mixture of several different compounds. What does EHT stand for?
EHT stands for “Eicosanoyl-5-HydroxyTryptamide.”
Now, you know why they call it EHT.
It's said researchers at Signum Biosciences noticed that people with severe memory decline had a disruption of a regulator protein called PP2A. The PP2A protein regulator is said to help keep the connections between brain cells “robust and healthy.”
Theoretically, anything that could help increase the PP2A, might let brain cells talk to each other better. This might help memory and other things that PP2A helps regulate.
This does sound interesting. So, is there any research on EHT? Yes, there is.
Let's look at that research next.
Sigmun Biosciences had an EHT supplement called ME Sports, which was marketed to athletes. That product website – MeSports.me – redirects people to NeriumEHT.com.
They say that “ME™ sports has been shown to be beneficial in vivo models of cognition, memory and motor function.” The phrase “in vivo” basically means conducted in animals/not in a test tube. While that's good, it's not the same thing as human studies.
On the website of Signum Biosciences, several clinical studies are listed. I will link to the studies below so you can see it as you conduct your own research. This research is complicated. Even the titles of the studies sound complicated.
Instead of getting bogged down in explaining the research, I'll just list the study name and give a quick breakdown as to whether it involved people, lab animals or was test tube research (which I define as research not occurring in living animals).
By breaking the research down this way, you can get a better idea of how far along with the current research on EHT.
Here are the studies listed in support of the EHT compound.
|Study Title||Type of Study|
|EHT™ coffee extract: A neuroprotective agent and modulator of PP2A methylation with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties (S16.006) (2015)||Test tube study|
|Therapeutic benefits of a component of coffee in a rat model of Alzheimer disease. (2014)||Rat study|
|Neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties of a coffee component in the MPTP model of Parkinson's diseasedisease. (2013)||Mouse study|
|Enhanced phosphatase activity attenuates α-synucleinopathy in a mouse model. (2011)||Mouse study|
|The structural basis for tight control of PP2A methylation and function by LCMT-1 (2011)||Test tube study|
|Phosphoprotein phosphatase 2A: a novel druggable target for Alzheimer’s disease (2011)||Review paper of previous research|
|Protein carboxyl methylation and the biochemistry of memory. (2009)||Study involving isolated cells.|
|Mechanisms of tau-induced neurodegeneration. (2009)||Review paper of previous research|
|From promiscuity to precision: protein phosphatases get a makeover. (2009)||Test tube study|
|Protein carboxyl methylation and the biochemistry of memory. (2009)||Test tube study.|
|Structural mechanism of demethylation and inactivation of protein phosphatase 2A. (2008)||Test tube study|
|Tau hyperphosphorylation correlates with reduced methylation of protein phosphatase 2A.(2008)||Test tube study of mouse and human cells|
|Structure of a protein phosphatase 2A holoenzyme: insights into B55-mediated Tau dephosphorylation. (2008)||Test tube study|
|Protein Phosphatase 2A Methyltransferase Links Homocysteine Metabolism with Tau and Amyloid Precursor Protein Regulation (2007)||Mouse study|
|Downregulation of protein phosphatase 2A carboxyl methylation and methyltransferase may contribute to Alzheimer disease pathogenesis.(2004)||Test tube study|
|Altered expression levels of the protein phosphatase 2A ABalphaC enzyme are associated with Alzheimer disease pathology. (2004)||Test tube study. Appears similar to previous study. Same authors.|
|Protein phosphatase 2A methylation: a link between elevated plasma homocysteine and Alzheimer's Disease. (2002)||Test tube study.|
As can be seen from the table above, there is a need for human research.
What About The Princeton University Study?
Some may have also heard of a study at Princeton University. This investigation was an undergraduate senior thesis on EHT. The title of the thesis is “The Neuroprotective Effects of Eicosanoyl-5-hydroxytryptamide in an in vitro Model for Parkinson’s Disease.”
This is not a human study.
Essentially, human cells were treated with Signum EHT to see what happened. This investigation showed the EHT molecule has a cell-protective effect. While the investigator used human cells, isolated cells -even from humans – are not the same as testing EHT in humans.
Let me be clear: I listed the studies like this not to slam the product or deprecate any company. Rather, the goal was to make it easier for you to understand this very complicated research better. As this reporter becomes aware of more evidence,f this section will be updated.
EHT vs. EHT 0202
EHT0202 is an Alzheimer's drug. It is not the same thing as EHT, the supplement.
The reasons for this are because:
- EHT is a product of Signum Biosciences located in New Jersey. The EHT 0202 drug was developed by a French company called Diaxonhit (formally called Exonhit).
- Performing online searches for “Signum Biosciences and Exonhit” (or Diaxonhit) does not reveal anything showing these compounds are the same.
Because of this, Brand Partners should not confuse research on EHT0202 with Neora EHT. Their names are very similar so it's easy to confuse them.
Does Neora EHT Have Caffeine?
I think the answer is yes and no. The EHT brain formula is decaffeinated, but I've also seen it said it has a small amount of caffeine. They say the amount of caffeine is less than is in a decaffeinated cup of coffee.
That's very little caffeine. I don't think most people would notice it. Some people have left comments below saying they had trouble sleeping. Whether or not this is related to caffeine, I can't say.
Neora and Dementia
Can the EHT brain supplement reduce risk of dementia or Alzheimer’s or improve memory if it were taken long-term? It's a tantalizing idea to be sure. Currently, there is just not enough evidence to say yes or no to this question.
For those who have dementia or are thinking about EHT for their family members who already have cognitive insufficiency problems, the best advice is to show the ingredients this supplement to their doctor.
Food for thought: Evidence suggests regular exercise can preserve brain health.
Neora EHT and Concussions
In the past, the Sigmun Biosciences website used to contain an EHT supplement called “Me Sports” where “Me” stands for “Mind Enhancement.” They used to say that Me Sports “provides the best protection for your brain.” References to Me Sports no longer appear on the Sigmun website. It has been replaced by Neora EHT and may be discontinued.
Does Nerium EHT help with concussions? Currently, there is a lack of proof showing the supplement helps recovery from concussions or traumatic brain injuries or reduces their risk either.
Neither Neora or the Sigmond Biosciences websites make any claims the product helps concussions.
Can EHT Help Parkinson's
Can EHT help Parkinson's disease? For now, the proof is lacking.
There are references to Nerium EHT being endorsed by the Michael J. Fox Foundation. But, according to the website Truth in Advertising, this is not true. While the Michael J. Fox Foundation does seek a cure for Parkinson's, they do not endorse any specifics treatments.
The Michael J Fox Foundation has awarded grants to Signum Biosciences to investigate PP2A as it relates to Parkinson's. Stay tuned for the results of those studies.
Neora EHT and ADHD
Does EHT help people with ADD or ADHD? Evidence is lacking. It may or may not. There is not enough research on Attention Deficient Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficient Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to provide a verdict either way.
Neora EHT and Exercise
The company which invented the EHT molecule has a paper titled ” EHT® Age-Defying Supplement: Scientific Rationale for Boosting Workout and Post-Workout Recovery.” This paper (which can be found by doing an online search) is not a peer-reviewed clinical study. Rather, it discusses how the ingredients in EHT might reduce inflammation that occurs after intense exercise and improve recovery.
No doubt, there is human research on the vitamins/ minerals in the product. The EHT molecule also might-in theory- hold promise too.
But, whether or not Nerium EHT would benefit people who do CrossFit, Zumba, Tabata or any other exercise program is speculation until the research is published.
Is Neora EHT FDA Approved?
The FDA doesn't technically “approve” supplements. This is part of the US law that regulates supplements, called DSHEA, which is short for the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. In the US, supplement companies do not have to tell the FDA that they are making a new supplement or get FDAs approval before a supplement is marketed to the public.
Who Makes EHT?
There are two different companies involved with this dietary supplement:
- Signum Biosciences
Let's look briefly look at each company separately.
The Neora Company
According to the company website (Neora.com), the company is a “relationship marketing company.” That means they offer a variety of products that are sold via distributors, called “Brand Partners.” In other words, Neora is a multi-level marketing company. Nothing wrong with that. It's how they do business.
The company address is 4006 Belt Line Road Addison, TX 75001. The address listed with the Better Business Bureau is a bit different than this, but in the same office building: 4004 Belt Line Rd STE 112, Addison, TX 75001-4356.
Each address corresponds to the same business center. If you Google the address, you can see what it looks like.
The company did have an A rating with the Better Business Bureau but this was revoked. See the BBB file for updates and more information.
Signum Biosciences is the company that discovered the EHT molecule. They are a privately held biotechnology company founded in 2002. The company is located at 11 Deerpark Dr Monmouth Jct, NJ 08852.
The former company address was 133 Wall Street Princeton, NJ 08540.
Their contact phone number: 732.329.6344.
See their BBB file for updates and more information.
The company can be reached at these phone numbers:
- USA: 855-463-7486
- Canada: 888-304-6046
Buy Neora EHT
The supplement is not sold in stores like Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Costco, RiteAid, Sames Club, Kroger or Food Lion. To purchase Nerium, most people go through a Nerium Brand Ambassador. Another option is to purchase directly from Nerium.com.
When doing this, you have the option to give the name of the ambassador who referred you, but this is not mandatory. In other words, you don't need an ambassador when purchasing from their website. This means the company may be in competition with ambassadors for sales.
The company tells me products purchased through Amazon/eBay are endorsed and the warranty does not apply. That said, Amazon and eBay are pretty good with returns. I've returned things in the past and never had any issues.
How Much Does It Cost?
When I checked the company website, for a 1 month's supply (non-returning customer), the cost was $89.95, and for auto-shipments, it was $69.95. These amounts include $9.95 shipping. When I checked, it was less expensive on Amazon.
Supplement companies often have an arbitration clause when purchasing products from their site. This is to protect them from class-action lawsuits. This makes sense. It looks like this might be the cause of Nerium.com also. The Terms and Conditions page of Nerium.com states
“The arbitration shall be conducted before a single arbitrator, and shall not be conducted on a class-wide, class-action, or multiple-complaining-party basis. The prevailing party shall recover its attorneys’ fee and costs from the losing party.”
While I'm not a lawyer this looks like people waive certain rights -like jury trial- when purchasing products from their website. Nobody wants to be sued so I understand companies trying to shield themselves from what can sometimes be frivolous legal battles. I bring this up in case it matters to anyone.
How To Take Neora EHT
The company website says to take 1 tablet per day with food in the morning, preferably with some food that has healthy fats. This is likely to increase absorption. A box contains 30 tablets, so this will last a month.
Neora EHT Side Effects
I believe the EHT Brain Formula supplement is safe in healthy people. I’m not aware of any side effects from the product at the time this review was created. There is also a lack of human research on this product as well. That said, here are a few things worth mentioning. Speak to your doctor if you think any of this applies to you. This list is not complete:
- Start with less than suggested for the first week to see how you respond
- Stop taking the supplement at least 2 weeks before surgery
- Speak to your doctor first if you are pregnant or breastfeeding
- If you take ANY medications, speak to your doctor or pharmacist first
- Huperzine A might slow down the heart rate. This may be a problem for people taking some medications, such as those for heart disease and/or high blood pressure.
- If the product contains a little bit of caffeine, this might interfere with sleep if taken close to bedtime especially in those very sensitive to caffeine. A few people in the comments below have said they had trouble sleeping after starting the product.
Neora EHT Pro and Con
Here is a quick rundown of what I liked and didn't like about this supplement. These are my opinions. Take them for what they are.
|Been around a long time||Expensive|
|Company is respected||No human clinical proof|
Does Neora EHT Work?
While preliminary research hints the compound EHT, might have benefits, I think it's too soon to tell. This supplement has been out for a few years now and the company has not published clinical studies to back up its claims. While of the ingredients in Nerium EHT appear to make sense on paper, to know for sure, it needs to be tested in people in clinical studies published in medical journals. So, is it a scam? Many people say it's not. Many have said it's the real deal. Stay tuned for more research.
Here it is on Amazon
Any Questions or Comments?
Thank you! Will do.
I’m curious after the time from your original post here if you have ever come back to Nerium’s EHT? Vor if you can compare other products to it now.
Joe Cannon says
Hi Gloria, I try to keep reviews updated as new research becomes available. I have not seen any new human research on Nerium EHT (Nerium Ambassadors have you? let me know). What products would you like me to compare Nerium EHT to? I’m happy to take a look at different products. Many of my reviews come from questions peopel ask me here 🙂
Thank you so much for this quite clear and articulate review of the research and other questions one might have about EHT. I tried it for a short time, a month or so without results and understand now I didn’t try it long enough. I have a couple of friends in their 50’s and 60’s who tell me they have been helped with their memory after being on it for just over two months.
I wanted to know if there was any research for it on humans and your review popped up in my search. Thank you for your thorough review as well for your gracious comments to the various responses you have had. Way to go!
I wonder why EHT hasn’t been tested on humans yet, or if it has why it the results haven’t been reported. Do you know if there has been a response to that question yet? Hoping for the research on humans soon, and I may try it for a longer period in the near future. Thanks again.
Joe Cannon says
Hi Stacey, thank you for your kind words. I’m happy my review helped you. I still don’t see any human clinical trials on Nerium EHT or the EHT molecule. If any Nerium ambassadors reading this know differently, please do let us.
That’s good news that your friends said it took just a bit more than 2 months to work. This can give you an idea of how long it may take if you take it.
If you decide to try it again, I hope you’ll let me know what happens.
Here is Nerium EHT on Amazon
Didn’t see where I could post new comment. I have 2 boxes to a friend whose mother had become reclusive and stopped talking from Alzheimer’s. After only 30 days on it, she had started talking again. Even if there haven’t been clinical trials each person can judge for himself if it is a help.
Joe Cannon says
MsJeannie, this is a wonderful story. Thank you for sharing. This is the reason why I’d like to see more clinical research performed. I’m curious, what made your friends mom more likely to take Neriumm EHT rather than her Alzheimer’s medications? How did you get her to take Nerium regularly?
PS, congrats you figured out how to post a new comment 🙂
Beth Blake says
She stopped talking, not stopped taking.
Joe Cannon says
Beth, thanks for that clarification! This is what I get for not wearing my glasses 🙂 For someone with dementia to return to speaking again after taking Nerium EHT is very impressive. This would even more reason to start clinical trials on humans. I want to know more about this.
Reynolds Jones says
One more reference of interest if you are willing to look outside the US — even though this is on pubmed: —
Joe Cannon says
Reyn, this is a review article. It summarizes previously published mouse/rat and test tube research studies on EHT and coffee.
Reynolds Jones says
I’m always bothered when someone claiming to be scientifically trained cannot seem to do basic research. You searched for Nerium EHT? Why on EARTH would a scientifically literate person search for a brand name in journal articles, instead of looking for the actual name of the compound being investigated? …. I certainly wouldn’t.
I have no idea if it works or not, but I do know that there have been studies that indicate that it does, at least in animal studies. I found that by searching for the full chemical name – not by searching for Nerium EHT.
Start with this: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29253878
Then maybe consider the following – which was from 2013 – so certainly available when you wrote: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23296837
You might also think about just going through the list of papers, some of them specific to Nerium, btw – but mostly on EHT by its full chemical name: http://mindenhancementsupplement.com/eht-research-papers-links-to-white-papers/
Now, I am unlikely to purchase Nerium’s product – considering that there are cheaper alternatives with the same ingredients, that’s where I would go if I decided to take it – but to read someone panning it by claiming there is no research, when in reality there is substantive research, is insulting.
Joe Cannon says
Reyn, I am scientifically trained and that is why I searched for research on Nerium EHT. Science is about asking questions. I wondered if there were any clinical studies on Nerium EHT. This should not bother you becuase some companies DO publish research on their supplements. For example, the companies which make
Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract
Juice Plus Review
Have all invested the time and money to support clinical research on their products. Sometimes the names of the supplement even appears in the clinical study title.
So, when I search for a brand name supplement in pubmed, you can trust I am doing it for a reason.
I’ve looked at the links you provided, Let me address them
The first study you listed, which describes how EHT might prevent Alzheimer impairments was a mouse study. I addressed several other EHT mouse studies in the review. Lab animal research is very important but I wonder why the lack of published human research on EHT?
The second study you listed -from 2013 – described the neuroprotection and anti-inflammatory properties of EHT in Parkinsons disease. This is also a mouse study. This study is also listed in the review.
You also listed a site called “Mind Enhancements Supplements.com” which lists several white papers on EHT. I’m not linking to that site because its likely a distributor website. The site even has a sign up page the Nerium Business Opportunity. I looked at the website but I didn’t see anything new. it looks to be a compilation of mouse and test tube research.
I never said EHT didnt have any research. I actually listed several studies in my review. What I think people should know is there is a lack of human research at this time. Humans deserve human research. I’m sure eventually that’s going to happen. When I become aware of it, I’ll add it to this review.
You mentioned there are other lesser expensive supplements with the same ingredients. That’s not necessarily so. Its my understanding ONLY Nerium can use the EHT molecule. They license it from the company which discovered EHT. I dont believe you will find EHT in any other supplement.
Reyn, I do hope this helps you better understand the review. My goal to put the studies in proper context so people like yourself could better understand them. Then you can make a more informed decision.
EHT might be a great supplement – some people here have said as much – but for me I want to see clinical research on humans.
I have been in Nerium for 2 and a half years and it’s always been 60.00 since then. I can’t speak to before August 2016.
Autoship is not an issue. Very user friendly. You can turn it off with the click of a button, with no penalty. Or call. Or ask your rep to do it for you.
So simple and saves a good deal on retail prices.
Its worth every penny to help my family with various things from trauma to the brain, focus, memory, and lifting brain fog. On addition it DOES help is with muscle recovery after work outs.
And while you may feel you only want CLINICAL human results, I’m not sure you can argue with the thousands who purchase EHT month after month and provide us with countless testimonials of life changing experiences. I prefer a human experience face to face testimony over a lab I’ve never heard of or an internet blog any day.
Joe Cannon says
Lynn, I respect what you are saying and am happy you say EHT is helping you. I prefer to look at the research because that’s something you can see for yourself, rather than a testimony from somebody you may not know.
That was what I was trying to convey, poorly, I suppose.
I DO know these people with testimonials! They are my family, friends, colleagues, customers..etc. people who I have heard stand up in crowds and tell their amazing stories, often with tears in their eyes!
There is research. You cited many sites and articles. And EHT IS in pub med. The true hero of the pill IS the EHT molecule, and the other supplements are supporting ingredients.
I agree with you, Huperzine is wonderful for the brain, many things are, but the EHT is the one that has had over 20 years of research by Dr. Jeffry Stock. He has won the Humboltz prize and is published quite a bit in pub med.
You can read more about him if you Google his name.
Anyways, I wont begin repeating what many other people have tried to explain. I KNOW it works. I will continue to tell the world of this helpful little white pill that can help heal neuronal connections and improve other’s well being. God bless.
Joe Cannon says
Lynn, yes I encountered Dr. Stock in my research. He’s a well respected researcher. The thing I’m curious about when people see results, is it because of EHT or huperzine or a combo of all the ingredients? It’s my hope is one day Nerium EHT and the EHT molecule will get more human studies. I’m genuinely intrigued.
Cyndi Brinkley says
I bought some to help with my 12 year olds focus. Now I’m worried it won’t work but more importantly he might have side affects. Any advice? Or a better product?
Joe Cannon says
Cyndi, Ive never tried Nerium EHT so I cant say either way. Have you figured out why your 12 yr old is not focusing? has he been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD? Ive seen some research linking ADD to artificial food colorings. Some have said things got better when those foods were stopped.
Here’s a study which discusses this: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3441937/
Does your 12 year old exercise? There is some evidence hinting exercise can help ADD/ADHD. Here’s a study on this:
While I cant speak to Nerium EHT I can say Exercise doesn’t have any bad side effects and has many good side effects.
Joan Abbott says
I thought I’d help you and your readers in understanding that your searches might have gone better, had you or Google known where to look. Here’s a link to research from Princeton University. You said their was no scientific research connected to EHT, that was not only misleading, but outrageously incorrect. As I understand their research, was 20 years in the making. Then they reached out to Nerium to do the manufacturing and distribution using their their formula.
EHT research papers
Hi Joan, the link you provided in your comment didn’t go anywhere. No web page would load and so I removed it. If you can provide another link that works, I’ll be glad to look at it. Joan, I searched the most well respected database of clinical research in the world – pubmed. Thats the national library of medicine. Any research on EHT will be published there. It would not be hard to find.
Please know that when I say “no published research” I’m referring to research that is published in a peer reviewed medical /science journal. Not research that is published on a website. While I dont discount “unpublished” research -that which does not appear in a peer reviewed medical journal – I prefer peer reviewed research because it gives more information and has gone through a process where other scientists – the “peers” – can look it over first.
Again, if you care to share a working link again, I’ll be glad to look at it.

Thank you for a most interesting, readable and informative review.
Hi Charles, you are most welcome. I thank you for saying that. Have a terrific holiday!

Concerning grants made to Signum Biosciences to conduct research on treatments for Parkinson’s, please see –
The research into PP2A is relevant in that lab research has shown that Nerium EHT
has been effective in that is “Optimizes the function of PP2A activity (the major tau dephosphorylation enzyme in the brain) which in turn increases cognitive and metabolic function.”
Hi David, I really want to thank you for those links to the Michael J Fox Foundation. It was my oversight to not search the MJF Foundation website for “signum biosciences.” Once I did, the info on grants showed up. I have updated the review to reflect this too. Much appreciate your assist!

My anectodal input.
My 17yr old son has Turrets, High functioning Autism (barely in spectrum), and associated Tik disorder. You may not notice unless you raised him. Anyway, we’ve tried a number of nootropic and other homeopathic supplements to help him monitor his reactions and social interactions. We are experimenting (blind study…he doesn’t know) 30 days at a time with one supplement etc to measure subjectively the impact in behavior.
So far, Nerium EHT has had the most notable and profound impact. He’s much more polite, caring, and on target in articulating thoughts. He is less frustrated by sudden changes or challenges.
However, we’re moving on to others due to the expense and to continue our nonscientific study. Looking to spend no more than $1/day.
Hi Adam, thanks for sharing that. Do let us know if you discover anything else that helps.
From my research on pricing, EHT from Nerium is $2/day … is that what you paid?
Joan Abbott says
I mean no disrespect, but I’d give up 2 of my 3 meals a day, if the savings benefited my sons mental health. Starting then switching to a new 30-day trial of a supplement and then stopping EHT when you noted the best results, seems reckless to me. (Especially over $1 a day difference)
Talk to me on how we could work together to get your son the EHT he needs. It’s not a cure, but it can have long-term benefits if taken long-term. Sorta like brushing your teeth. You’ll do it everyday and never quit. Why? Long-term dental benefits. EHT works the same. Long-term brain health.
Joan, you know you just to advised Adam and/or his son reduce their food intake by 66% (2 of 3 meals) a day to pay for Nerium EHT.
Oh Joan, please rethink this.
Wendy Banner says
Joan, your math is a little off on the price per day/pill. It’s about $3 a day for Nerium EHT since it is about $89.95 for 30 tablets.
It’s actually 60$ a month. You get it auto shipped to you. So YES it is 2$ a day.
Joe Cannon says
Lynn, have they drooped the price on Nerium EHT?
