Neurofuse Review: Substantial Boost in Energy; Mostly Stimulant
Neurofuse is a relatively newer nootropic supplement that’s come out to the market, and judging from what we’ve seen here at Brain Pill Reviews, it’s doing really well. If you take a good look at their page, the site does look extremely flashy and well-built, and definitely has a resounding design look and build that is slightly reminiscent of the late Steve Jobs. In all sense of the word, their site is a beauty.
A lot of money has probably gone into the creation of that site, and props to them for doing so. Needless to say, in this day and age, aesthetics do matter.
But of course, that’s not the only thing aspect we’re going to be looking at. While the amount of money they have probably spent into Neurofuse’s design is admirable, there are a few more important aspects to this: the actual information available on their website and the ingredients inside Neurofuse’s formula.
That’s a Pretty Website!
That’s one thing that we’ve noticed though: the website doesn’t exactly tell you too much about Neurofuse, and we have a massive problem with that.
Amongst all the pretty images, the only thing the website really tells you is:
- You get increased energy, focus, and mental performance
- A short description on what it does
- It was formulated by Harvard roommates
Of course, there are also a couple testimonials and some information regarding its ingredients, but there really isn’t any specifics on how it works, the supplement facts, or the dosage. In their defense, at least they did list their ingredients and the sources on some of their claims, but for the most part, some of the information is a bit lacking.
We would have definitely loved to see a supplement facts label detailing exactly what ingredients were in Neurofuse, as well as the specific dosages for each ingredient. Another thing we would have loved to see is a section that details exactly how nootropics work and how they affect the brain and the body. I would have definitely taken this over pretty pictures.
Again, they do mention that they have ingredients with stimulating properties, which are great for a quick study session or powering through a late-night project at the office, but of course, cognitive stimulants usually have no long-term benefits for the brain.
After doing a little searching on the internet, we did eventually find that Neurofuse does in fact provide its ingredients list – but it wasn’t on their website. It was on Amazon. Its formula contains some really potent ingredients like Huperzine A, Vinpocetine, Phosphatidylserine, and Alpha Lipoic Acid. On the flip side, however, as previously mentioned, it does have a few stimulant ingredients, as well as DMAE, and lower grade Choline.
Our beef with stimulants isn’t really about caffeine at all. Caffeine is a great nootropic, but its effects are heavily influenced depending on the other ingredients in the formula as well. Caffeine is awesome in that it provides a great source for heightened alertness, focus, and energy – but the drawback here is that it contains some side effects as well. Namely, these are jitters, anxiety, high blood pressure, and heart palpitations. And of course, we can’t forget the caffeine crash that follows. What’s worse though is that if you take enough caffeine regularly, you start building up a tolerance, where you are functioning at a lower level and taking caffeine just brings you back to “normal”.
Luckily, this was not apparent in our tests as Neurofuse was great for study sessions lasting 3 to 4 hours. While we did not experience many side effects, we still did get the caffeine crash from Neurofuse after the caffeine “high” subsided.
Neurofuse is great at what it does though. The combination of Huperzine A, Vinpocetine, and Alpha Lipoic Acid really create a synergistic combination for improved focus and clarity – allowing you to solve problems in a cinch. Information recall was also a bit smoother. It was so much easier to remember even the simplest of trivia information, which was definitely really neat.
But again, our biggest problem with Neurofuse was really its inclusion of caffeine. You see, caffeine, although in a lot of different substances out there, is actually a little difficult to get right. If you really want to benefit amazingly from its nootropic benefits, you need to pair it up with L-Theanine, a soothing ingredient that takes away all the drawbacks and side effects that normal caffeine has, allowing you to really, really experience caffeine at its fullest.
If you want to give Neurofuse a try first, they also have a free trial – which is great for those who are on a budget and are still looking to see what works for them first.
Pro’s and Con’s
– Vastly improves energy and
– Has some very premium ingredients
– Has free trial
– May not be great for those who are caffeine intolerant
– Could definitely improve by removing caffeine or adding “L-theanine”
Summary: Great Stimulant without side effects
The great thing about Neurofuse is that while it is a stimulant, it does not have any side effects at all. It’s definitely great at what it does – getting a lot done in a short amount of time. However, please note that in our experiments, the caffeine contents still caused crashes towards the end of the “caffeine high”. In addition, you get to try it out for free as well. While there isn’t much information available on its website, you should still find some on the internet – a lot of their ingredients are pretty premium, so they have that going for them.
