    Rated 1st

    Avanse Lab Overall Success Rating: 98.2%

    Summary: Avanse Nutraceuticals’ blows all our editors away with an innovatively new formula utilizing the potent Noopept, in combination with select key natural nootropics. Hands down, is the best cognitiveenhancer we’ve ever reviewed, and will probably top our list for a very long time.

    is a relatively newer brain supplement, but having heard so many positive reviews about it that we just had to take a look at what the hype was all about. comes from the company Avanse Nutraceuticals, and has only been seeing very positive scores across the many critique and expert websites everywhere since its release.

    Rated 2nd

    Overall Success Rating: 91.5%

    Summary: We are highly selective in our choice of brain supplements for two reasons: (1) this is a highly saturated market that one needs to set real winners apart from less optimally performing products, and (2) brain potency and wellness benefits are quite easy to claim and therefore one has to be discriminating in choosing. Having said that, we are impressed by the speed and precision at which responds to brain needs – and without unwanted effects that could turn off first-time users. The benefits are sustained and evident from first dose, and this doesn’t happen every time with nootropic products. While far from perfect, this pill is one worth exploring or its price and value for money.

    Rated 3th

    McCleary Scientific Overall Success Rating: 83%

    Summary: Dr. McCleary’s is a good memory and motivation improving product targeted to the elderly that could have been a lot better with a slight reformulation. It doubles as a multivitamin, and so could have been a lot more potent. Still, it’s a solid option… if you can get past the price!

    If you’ve never heard of before, don’t fret. Checking out their website, you’ll be pleased to find out that it actually contains a lot of information about the product, the brain and memory in general, FAQs, testimonials, and if you’re interested, there are even some eBooks for sale. It really seems like a lot of work has been put into compiling the information on the website, and it seems like McCleary is a pretty knowledgeable man.

    Onnit Labs Overall Success Rating: 82%

    Summary: Onnit’s is potent, and much loved, but while packing a solid formula – especially if you were to add your own nootropics on top – as a stand alone supplement it could be better. Great customer service and a genuine passion for what they do does overshadow the gathering voices who are asking why the experience didn’t live up to the website claims… But we still can’t take away from them a cool entry level product.

    If you’ve been avidly searching for the best brain supplement in the market, the name will most definitely have come up at least a few times. is a brain supplement that’s gone through many iterations… the you see today is very different from the when it first came out. The company behind it, Onnit, has slowly been shifting itself towards a health and fitness brand, and with that slow change also came the changes in ’s formula.

    McCleary Scientific Overall Success Rating: 80%

    Summary: A solid try from a new pharmaceutical company that follows the blueprints that the industry’s leaders have left behind. While it isn’t perfect with a few side effects and some ingredients that could be improved, it shows great promise for the future and perhaps v.2.0.

    is a relatively newer brain supplement in the industry that we actually just heard about a few months ago when a friend of the office came to recommend us to review it. Since those few months, it seems like had seen an increase in popularity… especially online in various nootropic discussion boards
