Details on completed KeenMind / CDRI 08™ clinical studies can be found here:

The chronic effects of KeenMind CDRI 08™ on cognitive function in healthy human subjects*

Conclusions: These findings suggest that KeenMind may improve higher order cognitive processes that are critically dependent on the input of information from our environment such as learning and memory.

Chronic Effects of KeenMind CDRI 08™ on Human Memory*

Conclusions: There was a significant effect on a task requiring the retention of new information: the recall of unrelated word pairs after a short delay. The effect appears to be a reduction in the amount of information lost from memory. When combined with the finding of improved retention of information in this study, this suggests that the effect of KeenMind may be mediated by antioxidant action within the hippocampus.

Examining the Nootropic Effects of KeenMind on Human Cognitive Functioning: 90 day Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Randomized Trial*

Conclusions: This study provides support for previous studies reporting cognitive enhancing effects in healthy humans after a 90 day administration of KeenMind.

An Acute, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Crossover Study of 320 mg and 640 mg Doses of KeenMind CDRI 08™ on Sustained Cognitive Performance*

Conclusions: 2 capsules of KeenMind appear to have some acutely enhancing effects upon cognitive functioning even in healthy young individuals (i.e. a genuine nootropic effect).

An Acute, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Cross-over Study of 320 mg and 640 mg Doses of Bacopa monnieri (CDRI 08™) on Multitasking Stress Reactivity and Mood

Conclusions: It was concluded that acute KeenMind supplementation produced some adaptogenic and nootropic effects

Studies on the stress-relieving effect of the medyha rasayan drug Bacopa

Conclusions: Clinical effects indicate that Bacopa exerts a stress-relieving effect.

Randomized controlled trial of CDRI 08™ in age-associated memory decline

Conclusions: CDRI 08™ is a safe and effective drug for age associated memory decline.

Efficacy of Bacopa monnieri in revitalizing intellectual functions in children

Conclusions: Bacopa monnieri is useful for renovating and vitalising components of intellectual behaviour.

Together with our research partners we are committed to building on the body of evidence for KeenMind as a leading cognitive enhancing natural medicine. Please register your details if you would like to be notified when results or updates from any of these studies have been published.

Numerous scientific studies on KeenMind have provided an excellent platform to assess the utility of treatment in humans for maintenance and improvement of cognitive functions, and normal cognitive ageing. There have been extensive investigations of the memory enhancing and related effects of KeenMind in scientific studies conducted at the Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) in Lucknow India.

Key findings of these pre-clinical studies demonstrate the following effects:

  • Memory enhancing
  • Reducing forgetfulness
  • Healthy mood maintenance
  • Calming
  • Stress reducing
  • Neuroprotective
