    According to the company’s page it’s something you use before the workout rather than during.

    $699! Ouch.

    Can anyone find an article in which it is truly tested and not merely tried by a reporter?

      LOL! I recently read that smoking pot affects one’s memory but I can’t remember where.

        The other thing it affects is the short term memory.

    What, it enhances short-term memory or make it even worse? Ha, ha!!

    Once again, the natural processes of Classical Music as an art are under attack by technology. It’s a good thing it takes time to develop memory of a piece, because living with it is part of knowing it. Wunderkind with photographic or otherwise instant memory are boring, uninteresting and uninvolved with their music.
