Best Brain Pill Rundown:
#1 – Best Brain Pill 2018 – NITROVIT 97%
Nitrovit Review – 97%
Best in class for Attention and Memory deficit issues, Nitrovit’s 37.5 mg of Noopept delivers crisp, sharp focus levels.
Nitrovit had us feeling alert, clear headed, motivated, and stood miles ahead in memory related tasks such as verbal fluency, remembering names, and boosting Lumosity speed tests.
#2 – Recommended – QUALIA MIND review 92%
Qualia Mind Review – 92%
Qualia Mind is another high ranking nootropic focus and memory formula – but its desire to be an ‘everything’ pill with over 40 ingredients could be its downfall.
The sheer size of the formula bumps Qualia’s price to a questionable $140 for 30 days. Is it worth the extra though?
#3 – Onnit – ALPHA BRAIN review 91%
Alpha Brain Review – 91%
From coconut oil to yoga mats, Onnit specialize in ‘Total Human Optimization’, and their Alpha Brain focus supplement promises just that.
Alpha Brain is unique in that the formula is made up entirely of ‘earth grown nootropics’. But does being solely plant based make for a weaker formula?
#4 – Synergy – FOCUS FACTOR review 90%
Focus Factor Supplement Review – 90%
You’ve likely heard of Focus Factor. The bottles adorn the shelves of many retail outlets across America including Walmart, Costco, and Walgreens.
Focus Factor’s biggest issue seems to be that the formula contains everything but the kitchen sink! Could less be more?
#5 – Natural Stacks – CILTEP review 90%
CILTEP Brain Pill Review – 90%
CILTEP’s formula utilizes natural ingredients only. The fear with “all natural” plant based nootropics is that they often can’t compete against the more potent hybrid formulas that combine the best of both worlds; earth grown nutrients with cutting edge lab synthesized nootropics such as Noopept, or the Racetams.
#6 – Cerebral Success – SMARTX review 89%
SmartX Brain Pill Review – 89%
You may feel this product rings a bell… If so, it’s probably because the founder of SmartX was a winner on the hit show Shark Tank.
While four of the Sharks did not like the founders pitch – Barbara Cochran decided to invest in SmartX. But did she make a smart move?
#7 – Neuro Optimizer review 89%
Neuro Optimizer Review – 89%
Neuro Optimizer provides a no thrills – yet no nonsense – approach with their ‘brain optimizing’ formula. The ingredients are solid and the price is right, coming in as low as $35 for a months supply on sites like Amazon.
Neuro Optimizer’s low price appeals to students, those on a budget, or even seasoned biohackers using Neuro Optimizer as a stack to add other nootropics to.
#8 – Quincy Bioscience – Prevagen review 88%
Prevagen Review – 88%
Prevagen is a brain supplement with only one ingredient – a synthetic clone of a protein found in Jellyfish. We wanted to find out if this unique ‘memory booster’ worked, and put it to the test. We also looked at the large number of online reviews and opinions regarding Prevagen.
Some liked Prevagen, many didn’t rate it at all… So what did we think?
#9 – Irwin Naturals – Ginkgo Smart review 87%
Ginkgo Smart Review – 87%
You can find Irwin Naturals Ginkgo Smart from as little as $22, which despite it not delivering like some of the more advanced formulas such as Nitrovit or Qualia Mind – still makes this a good product for the price point.
The ingredient list looks good, but are the milligrams a too low on the nootropics to really notice Focus or Memory improvements? Find out in our Ginkgo Smart review.
#10 – NeuroScience – AdreCor review 84%
AdreCor Review – 88%
Adrecor features some good nootropics such as L-tyrosine and Rhodiola Rosea- and a lot of vitamins as well. The vitamins include B3, B5, B6, and B12 among others – all known for their brain enhancing properties such as warding off tiredness, increasing alertness and concentration, and helping with memory recall and retention.
If you are new to brain-enhancement pills and supplements, and on a budget, AdreCor could be a good place to start.
