Q: Does Memory Script interfere or enhance medications?
A: Because it contains 40mg of ginkgo biloba, a well-studied herb that enhances blood flow to the brain, it can enhance the ‘blood-thinning’ effect of anticoagulants. For your safety, we recommend caution and approval from your doctor if you take prescription blood thinners such as Coumadin (warfarin), Plavix (Clopidogrel) and others.
Also, Memory Script can increase the production and activity of the neurotransmitter “acetylcholine,” which is also the target of many prescription medications for memory.* The combination of Memory Script with these types of medications (ie Namenda/Memantine or Aricept/Donepezil) may cause an excessive amount of acetylcholine. Symptoms of high acetylcholine include unusual fatigue, blurred vision, headache, dry mouth, nausea, muscle twitches and muscle or joint pain. Always consult your physician before taking new dietary supplements with memory-enhancing medications.

A: This is a question best posed to your physician. Memory Script is designed to support healthy brain function,* and if you do take it, the supplement is best taken in the morning. Alzheimer’s medications are usually taken at night due to their sedative effect.

Mito B Complex FAQ
Q: Does this product REPLACE the former version of B Complex on the site?
A: Yes, we have improved our B Complex and re-named it to "Mito B."
Q: Is there more niacin in Suzy's new Mito B Complex? And will it make me more likely to flush?
A: No, there is exactly the same amount of niacin in Mito B Complex as Suzy's previous B complex formula. The previous B complex had 20 milligrams of niacin, and Suzy's new product, Mito B Complex, also contains 20 milligrams of niacin. What the new formula has done is increase the amount of the non-flushing type of vitamin B3 --- niacinamide --- from 40 milligrams to 90 milligrams.
Q: Why do you use pyridoxal 5-phosphate, P5P, as your vitamin B6 in Mito B Complex?
A: Suzy is using Pyridoxal 5-phosphate, P5P for short, in Mito B Complex because P5P is the metabolically active form of vitamin B6. That means P5P is body-ready --- so your body can use it immediately without having to convert it from something else.
Q: Why are you using 5-MTHF as your folate ingredient instead of folic acid like in other B complex brands?
A: 5-MTHF is the metabolically active form of vitamin B9. That means 5-MTHF is body-ready, so your body can use it immediately without having to convert it from something else. 5-MTHF is also called “methylfolate”. Because folic acid is a synthetic vitamin form, and not a natural form, Suzy doesn't use folic acid in Mito B Complex.
Q: There were 500 micrograms of vitamin B12 in the previous formula, but the new formula contains 800 micrograms of vitamin B12. Why is that?
A: Suzy increased the amount of vitamin B12 in Mito B Complex so there would be 400 micrograms of methylcobalamin in it for nerve support, and 400 micrograms of adenosylcobalamin in it for mitochondrial support --- which is the main reason for the name change to Mito B Complex.
Q: Why are the Mito B Complex capsules bigger?
A: The new capsule size is call "single aught," which is a slightly larger capsule size than the previous formula, but that's because the new formula is slightly more dense. But if you think the capsule is too large, then you can certainly pull it apart and empty the contents into any food or beverage.
