BrainPill is dubbed as a state of the art brain supplement designed for supporting mental flexibility and enhancing lifelong cognitive ability in order to achieve faster learning, improved memory, and better mental performance. It operates on the assumption that people run out of mental steam from time to time as they try to meet life’s mounting needs and demands – whether in family life, the workplace, or a school.
What’s in BrainPill anyway? According to its manufacturer, Canadian company Leading Edge Health, it is chock-full of natural nootropics and cognitive boosters, including the proprietary Cognizin, Synapsa, Vinpocetine, and Phosphatidylserine. The targeted end results: giving its user an “unfair advantage” in brain power and protection against memory loss later in life.
- Citicoline – Cognizin®
- Bacopa monnieri – Synapsa
- Huperzine A
- Gingko Biloba
- Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Folic Acid (Vitamin B9)
- DHA Complex
- PS (Phosphatidylserine)
Headlining the BrainPill formulation is the Bacopa monnieri – Synapsa Natural Memory Support, which is a patented and standardized extract of bacopa monnieri aimed at the enhancement of cognitive function as well as mental performance. Another powerhouse ingredient here is Citicoline – Cognizin® , a water-soluble compound also known as CPD-Choline, and is found in every cell in the body for brain nutrition.
Helping encouraging synergistic action among ingredients – which including vitamins B5, B6, B9, B12, and the much-lauded DHA complex – is BioPerine, which comes from black pepper and usually incorporated in nutritional supplements for this purpose.
Effects and Benefits
It is evident from popping just the first supplement dosage that BrainPill is a force to reckon with in the brain pill industry. There is pronounced energy, a slight buzz that leads to getting all hyped up for work and the day’s many adventures, and effects akin to a caffeine pill for energy. The climb in energy, too, comes with notable memory and clarity enhance3ments that were felt even in the most harried days and nights. In sum, BrainPill is able to deliver the goods in a consistent formula.
Potential Side Effects
There is minimal to no report of adverse reactions to the supplement, as reflected by our own product trial and our small survey of external volunteer users of the nootropic. The usual warnings and reminders in taking nootropics, however, also apply to BrainPill, including staying well-hydrated to avoid the dehydration commonly witnessed in stimulant-based brain supplements.
A one-month supply of this nootropic candidate retails for $76.99, which is quite affordable and competitive in this saturated landscape. Potential bringing in more prospective customers are the bulk costs that reflect discounts and savings, such as a 2-month supply that comes with a $10 saving or a 12-month supply accompanied by about $434 in savings.
There is a relative shortage of online reviews for BrainPill, but of course it could be that didn’t scour hard enough to find compelling reviews online. At any rate, this supplement has caught the attention of several in the medical community, including Dr. Dave David, medical doctor and cosmetic surgeon who has appeared on CNN and MSNBC.
- Good market presence, or product recall
- Availability of scientific studies delving on ingredient and product levels
- Proprietary ingredients for uniquely positioned benefits
- Discounts and savings for bulk orders
- Relative shortage of customer testimonials
- Lacking imagery around supplement facts and product labeling
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 BrainPill responds to brain enhancement 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.
