Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

There are many supplements in circulation but unfortunately I have to make you present there are few studies proving efficacy for any of them, including the one you mention. One other alternative I would consider would be a supplement containing gingko biloba which is a popular aid for memory problems.

I hope to have been of help.
