What's Inside?

The principal formula in A.L.Z. Defense™—which was also in our previous product, SuppleMEM™ AD—was developed by an experienced nutritionist and tested by renowned neuroscientists.  A.L.Z. Defense™ now contains additional all-natural ingredients that help support existing neural networks and maintain neuroplasticity.

Green-tea extract

  • A.L.Z. Defense™ features a proprietary extract of green tea loaded with bioactive molecules. Our green tea extract is specially manufactured, and contains over 50% of a highly beneficial compound called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a polyphenolic compound that has been investigated extensively for its ability to maintain normal inflammatory responses.*

  • Curcumin and related compounds - curcuminoids - are renowned for their anti-oxidant properties and their ability to maintain normal inflammatory responses.* Emerging evidence from laboratory studies suggests curcuminoids may also work in the brain to maintain healthy neuronal connectivity and function.*  A.L.Z. Defense™ has been specially formulated to optimize the delivery of curcuminoids to the brain, featuring a new, more bioavailable formula.

Loaded with vitamins

  • A.L.Z. Defense™ contains many additional ingredients, including several B vitamins that are essential for healthy memory. For example, deficiency in vitamin B1 (or thiamin) is the root cause of Korsakoff syndrome, a form of memory loss common in alcoholics. B1 and other B vitamins play numerous essential roles in neuronal metabolism. The daily dose of A.L.Z. Defense™ contains 1000% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin B1, 1077% of vitamin B6, and 1083% of vitamin B12, in the form of methylcobalamin, which readily penetrates the blood-brain barrier. A.L.Z. Defense™ also contains a host of other beneficial ingredients, including vitamins C and E, as well as N-acetylcysteine. Finally, our new formulation features Alpha Lipoic acid, plus a small amount of Zinc--which helped inspire the name "A.L.Z. Defense."

Frequently Asked Questions

What is A.L.Z. Defense™?

A.L.Z. Defense™ is a dietary supplement for the support of memory and brain health. In two scientific studies conducted in animal models, this formula has been shown to support healthy cognitive function, maintain memory, and reduce changes associated with the aging of the brain.*

What is the evidence?

NooMeds only sells products proven to be effective in basic scientific studies. The formula used to create A.L.Z. Defense™ (and the previous product, SuppleMEM™ AD) was tested in animal models by renowned neuroscientists and the studies were published in peer-reviewed journals. This research was funded by the National Institutes of Health, and conducted at the University of California, Irvine, Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders (UCI MIND) and the University of Kentucky. These studies are available for anyone to download:

Is it safe?

Absolutely! A.L.Z. Defense™ is a revolutionary product precisely because it consists entirely of all-natural ingredients that have been safely consumed for millennia. This is a safe AND effective way to keep your memory healthy and supple. That said, if you have serious health concerns, it is always a good idea to talk to your health-care practitioner before starting anything new. We also do not recommend this product for anyone with known sensitivity to any of the ingredients.

Has A.L.Z. Defense™ been tested in humans?

A.L.Z. Defense™ has not been tested in humans and, because it is not a drug, it has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, A.L.Z. Defense™ is the only product of its kind to be tested in multiple animal models of brain aging, providing the best evidence that can possibly be acquired short of clinical trials (which are prohibitively expensive and time consuming). Additionally, there is scientific evidence (both animal and human) that many individual ingredients are beneficial for maintaining normal inflammatory response and supporting healthy cognitive and memory function.*

Does buying A.L.Z. Defense™ benefit charity?

Yes! We donate a portion of all net proceeds of A.L.Z. Defense™ to the Auguste Deter Foundation ( ), a nonprofit whose mission is to Prevent Alzheimer's NOW! Donations to the Auguste Deter Foundation will, in turn, be distributed in the form of research grants to support scientific studies of Alzheimer's disease.
