This is an in-depth review of Neurofuse. As a nootropic supplement, Neurofuse claims to improves energy, mental performance and vitality, and focus.
There are numerous brain boosters or nootropics on the market. Neurofuse claims not only to be a superior mental enhancing supplement, but one of the very best, if not the best. According to the manufacturer, the extensive premium selection of ingredients are designed to improve brain health and cognition, improve memory acquisition and retention, help you stay focused and attentive, give your general mental and physical vitality a boost, and improve general feelings of well-being by reducing feelings of angst and stress. The product is designed to work in such a way that you won’t experience a crash in between doses.
Each serving of 2 capsules contains 667 IUiu Vitamin D3; 3,3 mg Vitamin B6; 33,3 mcg Vitamin B12, with the rest of the ingredients combined in a ‘Neurofuse blend’ of 903 mg:
- Bacopa Monnieri – an antioxidant used to boost cognition and memory creation.
- Rhodiola Rosea – a herb that reduces fatigue and promotes mental youth.
- Caffeine – stimulates mental and physical performance, and sensitizes neurons.
- L-Theanine – an amino acid found in natural teas that helps reduce stress.
- Phosphatidylserine – prevents cognitive decline and improves brain functioning.
- Choline Bitartrate – boosts acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter that helps you learn.
- Vitamin B6 – helps brain and body absorb neurotransmitters and treat Alzheimer’s as well as ADHD.
- Huperzine A – promotes cognition.
- Vitamin D3 – supports improved mood and feelings of well-being as well as cognition.
- Alpha Lipoic Acid – a fatty acid involved in metabolism with strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Vitamin B12 – boosts energy, mood, and concentration.
The combination of ingredients makes for a potent mix that should work harmoniously to maximize mental output and vitality. The combination of ingredients is more extensive than other nootropics on the market, and proportionally the balance of each ingredient to the next is scientifically sound. The proprietary blend of 903 mg is enough to contain impact-inducing ingredient amounts.
The inclusion of caffeine as a stimulant can lead to jitters, increased heart rate and high blood pressure if the capsules are consumed with coffee or another caffeinated drink.
Acclimatize your tolerance to caffeine by starting with 1 capsule, and working up to 2-4 capsules, but do not consume more than 6 capsules per 24-hour period. The recommendation is to take capsules with meals for maximum uptake and impact. Pregnant women, those under 18, and those with pre-existing conditions are not advised to take this supplement unless their doctor has approved its use.
A month’s supply will cost you $69,99, or $29,82 for a bottle of 30 capsules. This could last you two weeks or 1 week, depending on the dosage you take. The product is available to buy on the Neurofuse website and Amazon. There do not appear to be any bulk discounts available.
Our research reveals that the cost of Neurofuse is very high, even though it contains more ingredients than other nootropics. It cannot be ascertained with certainty that the price premium translates to better performance than lower-priced nootropic supplements.
Possible Side Effects
There is the risk of crashing, accelerated heart rate, dizziness and shivers due to the caffeine component, notwithstanding the manufacturer’s mandate to consumers to increase dosages in gradual increments.
Some consumers have reported these side effects, especially jitteriness, which then ironically led to feelings of anxiety.
The manufacturer calls its risk-free, 14-day trial bottle pack an ‘industry best’ money-back guarantee. The consumer only pays for shipping. The trial bottle contains only 10 capsules though, which is a 5-day supply. This shows the manufacturer’s confidence in its assertions, but this is also, in essence, an upsell disguised as a ‘free trial’. You will be charged on your credit card for a month’s supply after accepting your free trial unless you cancel. Some irate verified consumers have reported poor client service and difficulty canceling monthly charges once accepting the free trial.
There is also a 30-day money back guarantee. This only applies to the first bottle, and there is no need to return the bottle. This is a solid guarantee but given the intricacy of the formulation, a 60-day money-back guarantee would have been optimal.
Neurofuse Review – The Bottom Line
It appears that the mix of ingredients is well thought out and combined in the correct proportions. The free trial period shows confidence in the product and is great, as long as you are mindful to cancel the monthly upsell which follows. There are more ingredients in this nootropic than in many others.
The inclusion of caffeine enhances the risk of shakiness, high blood pressure, general over-alertness, and cramps, amongst others. This is the most highly reported side effect.
It is impossible to tell if, in fact, the ingredients do clinically lead to a lack of brain fog, due to insufficient independent scientific testing in this arena. The product has attracted the whole spectrum of reviews from the superb to the dismal.
At such a high price point, many consumers have expressed a desire for better or quicker results when using the product. Price is, therefore, a huge consideration when buying Neurofuse.
Of concern to us was the concealed identity of the manufacturer. Although our research led us to a partnership based in Los Angeles with a 95% certainty of it being the manufacturer, this is impossible to state as fact. In general, we prefer more manufacturer detail transparency as it has implications for filing to subtly change a patent or formulation and other similar functions, which have an impact on consumers.
