Evo Pill Verses Our Editors’ Choice Winner Nitrovit.
Two of the most popular brain supplements out there on the market, Evo Pill and NITROvit go head-to-head in an in-depth comparison, putting them side-by-side as our reviewers revisit their formulas, effectiveness, side effects, and prices.
While it may not be immediately apparent to newcomers to the brain enhancement industry, Evo Pill and NITROvit are two of the most highly requested brain pills on our site. The two together account for at least 30% of all the visitors who land on our site, with the other 70% distributed among our other reviewed pills. With these many views on these two products, we believe that at least a handful of our readers would like the question answered: how does Evo Pill compared when directly compared to NITROvit?
Those who aren’t familiar with our site or who are here just looking for a quick answer should know this: NITROvit trumps Evo Pill every single time. NITROvit has won our Editor’s Choice Award two years straight now, and with good reason: It takes the best points from the best brain pills available in the industry and further improve upon those points. We’ll go more into detail on these points in this in-depth comparison between Evo Pill and NITROvit, so stay tuned.
Evo and NITROvit are relatively new in the industry, both of which came out at around the same time two to three years ago. While they haven’t been around as long as Excelerol or Alpha Brain, both Evo and NITROvit were picked up by the community rather quickly, and so grew in popularity over the few months following their launches.
Evo was the first of the two that we stumbled upon, and upon first impressions, our opinions were rather mixed. Evo’s website honestly looked like a very sloppy mess of half-finished graphics and some short descriptions stolen from other websites. The website itself isn’t that pretty and looks like it was designed by a college intern in three hours. The descriptions found there are also very vague, not actually telling you anything… except that there is a 75% off 24 hour sale, but not really (we’ll get more into that later).
Evo’s website doesn’t provide any helpful information regarding what Evo does or how it works. While we were able to find an ingredients page, it was buried deep in the website, and you aren’t going to be able to access it from any of the menu items (we found it with a Google search).
We came to hear about NITROvit a couple of months after Evo when we saw a handful of people discussing about it in a thread on Reddit. Upon landing on NITROvit’s site, we were initially a bit disheartened that we weren’t yet able to order as they were apparently moving their facilities to bigger premises (and so, were upgrading their website), but within a few weeks, they were back in business, and business was booming! Their new website was definitely a looker. They used high res graphics and we really loved the effects they used on their slider. It almost seemed like the words “Focus” and “Concentration” were just flying out of the bottle!
In contrast to Evo’s website, NITROvit’s contained lots of relevant information about the supplement. There are individually dedicated sections to how it works and what NITROvit does to your brain, and the manufacturers have even broken down the formula so that you know exactly what each and every ingredient does.
While you might argue that their websites should have nothing to do with the effectiveness of the brain pill itself, they’re actually great indicators that give us a glimpse on how involved the manufacturers are with their customers, how transparent they are with their business practices, and the level of effort they actually put into making sure you have the best available option for your money.
The formulas used in Evo and NITROvit couldn’t be more different. Although you can classify both as nootropic supplements, the focus for each formula is slightly different.
Evo’s formula consists of 20 different ingredients, putting a lot of emphasis on Bee Pollen, which takes up a considerable 400 mg of the formula. The rest of the weight of Evo’s formula is distributed among the other 19 ingredients, but for the most part, they’re of relatively low dosage (mostly 10-75 mg each).
In stark contrast, NITROvit’s formula is better balanced. Having only 12 ingredients in the formula, each ingredient has a little more room to breathe. Their website highlights NITROvit’s use of a combination of natural herbs and synthesized ingredients to produce a synergistic effects. The formula gives larger attention to Panax Ginseng, Alpha GPC, Ginkgo Biloba, and Bacopa Leaf Powder – all of which are distributed in high amounts. Most ingredients in NITROvit also benefit from higher dosages thanks to a more balanced distribution, allowing for a good 25-200 mg spread all around.

While Evo may share some of its ingredients with NITROvit, you’ll notice that these ingredients are included in heavier dosages in NITROvit’s formula.
NITROvit’s formula favors heavier dosages and high quality ingredients, while Evo’s formula seems to cut some corners, but delivers a wider array of ingredients (although these ingredients may not actually be included in high enough dosages for optimal effects).
For those who aren’t familiar with Bee Pollen, it’s a natural nutrient that improves energy levels in the body. Don’t mistake it for an energy booster though – it has no stimulant effects like caffeine and guarana. Rather, it works in the same way that L-Tyrosine does by combating lethargy and improving the body’s stamina. While this ingredient has shown some promise, there aren’t nearly enough studies conducted on it for it to be conclusive.
It is also important to note that one of Evo’s ingredients – DMAE – is a substance that is banned and illegal in Australia and Canada due to a surprising research paper that linked its use with cell death. It’s interesting to see that the manufacturers have decided to go with this ingredient despite that little piece of information.
NITROvit’s key ingredients – Alpha GPC, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Rhodiola, Panax Ginseng, and Ginkgo Biloba – all have a hand to play at improving memory first and energy levels second. These ingredients are well documented to produce a positive result as most of them have a role to play in the increased production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which helps improve the overall connectivity in the brain, strengthening neurons and synapses. These ingredients also double as vasodilators, increasing blood flow to the brain, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
Some of NITROvit’s ingredients like Panax Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba work synergistically together as well, meaning that you also benefit from the compounded effects they produce when taken together.
NITROvit Score: ★★★★★
Effectiveness of Formula
For the most part, the distribution of the ingredients in Evo’s and NITROvit’s formula represented their effects pretty well.
As we expected upon examining Evo’s formula, its effects were heavier on improving energy and focus. The combination of the energy enhancing properties of Bee Pollen with the boost of energy that Caffeine brings is a wonderful combination… while it lasts. Upon taking Evo, you can feel a strong buzz in your head as your energy levels increase. Most of us reported that this was immediate and quite hard-hitting, giving you a surge of productivity that lasts for a couple of hours.
Evo doesn’t seem to have any effects to memory though or mood though. While Evo’s formula does feature the ingredients needed to support an improvement in those areas, the low dosages seem to prevent any noticeable difference.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that NITROvit’s well-balanced formula also produced well-balanced effects. While NITROvit doesn’t have an energy booster like caffeine in its formula, the inclusion of energy boosting ingredients like Ginseng more than make up for that. While you probably couldn’t call it a
“buzz”, you definitely feel far more alert, focused, and actually conscious at what you’re doing at the moment.
Following the manufacturer’s recommended 30 days’ continued use, improvements to memory and mood soon followed. NITROvit would often have us laughing at just how much we were able to remember from the past couple of days – often including the most trivial and at times nonsensical information. NITROvit made us generally more positive and actually made learning fun.
Evo Score: ★★★☆☆
While our experience with Evo wasn’t that bad, an annoying problem we kept running into is a feeling of lethargy and fatigue, mostly occurring at the end of the day. It’s a little disappointing that the rise in energy you get from Evo is almost always followed by a crash. By the time you get home, you hardly have any energy to do any other activities – which admittedly made our girlfriends and wives more frustrated than we were. We also experienced headaches every now and then with Evo, especially when having taken it continuously over multiple days.
NITROvit didn’t seem to produce any side effects. We would simply feel “normal” after the effects subsided at the end of the day, and we were still able to continue with our daily routines. We believe this must be due to the lack of caffeine or other stimulant-based energy boosters in NITROvit’s formula There were also some instances where we experienced headaches, but these occurrences were far and few.
Evo Score: ★★☆☆☆
NITROvit Score: ★★★★★
Value for the Money
Evo Pills “24 hour” sale: HURRY! It’s only on 365 days a year!
While it may initially seem like Evo is actually a very expensive product that has had its price reduced for today under a 24-hour sale, don’t be so easily deceived. That “24-Hour Sale” happens literally every day, and there is absolutely no way that its original listed price was $139.95. What you’re encountering here is probably a sales technique – and a bad example at that. They inflate the “original price” so it seems like you’re actually getting more of a bargain. It’s kind of like Walmart trying to sell you a $20 carton of milk at a “discounted price” of $5. It’s just this kind of deceptive marketing that makes us cringe and always second guess ourselves when ordering from Evo’s website.
Evo’s actual price is $39.95 for a bottle that should last you a whole month. It’s relatively cheaper than NITROvit, but think again on what you’re actually getting in terms of value – a nootropic that functions primarily as an energy booster, but doesn’t seem to do much for your memory or mood.
NITROvit is sold on their website for $58.97 per bottle. A bottle contains sixty capsules and lasts thirty days at two capsules per serving. While it’s a little more expensive than Evo, it’s actually priced competitively when compared to other similarly high quality nootropics. For the price of just under $2 a day, you’re getting one of the best brain supplements available out there that is able to produce great effects on your memory, mood, focus, and energy – all while staying relatively side effect free.
