Studies on AlphaBRAIN™ primary ingredients such as Huperzine A have not demonstrated any negative effects in studies of 4-6 weeks in length with significant doses of 400 mcg. Other ingredients have similarly positive safety profiles and a long history of traditional use. Unlike many prescription drugs, reduction or cessation of ingredient dosage has not been shown to cause an over-correction in natural levels of neurotransmitters, and evidence from clinical trials suggests that normalcy will resume within a short period of time after stopping ingestion of the ingredients.
As a general rule it is always wise to take time off of any nutrient based supplement program, and Onnit™ recommends at least one week per month, or 2 days per week without taking AlphaBRAIN™ as a conservative measure.
It is important to note that AlphaBRAIN™ is not intended to treat or cure any disease or condition, and if you are taking a prescription for a brain condition, please consult your doctor before stopping or switching to AlphaBRAIN™.
