SmartX Review: Revisiting Cerebral Success
If you’ve heard of Cerebral Success, then you should know about SmartX. It’s basically the same thing. Yes, if you’ve been watching some Shark Tank lately on ABC, you’d have seen an episode where the CEO of Cerebral Success received some investment opportunities from one of the sharks, Barbara Corcoran. With some new additions to their formula and a massive overhaul on their site, Cerebral Success was reintroduced as SmartX.
Congnizin: a new addition
One of the newest addition to SmartX’s formula since it’s been introduced is cognizin. Cognizin is basically, as they mentioned, their branded form of citicholine. However, the problem with this is that their initial premise is already wrong. Citicholine is a cheaper form of a better, more effective Alpha GPC, which is present in many of the best brain pills out there like Alpha Brain.
With this addition to their formula, it isn’t exactly much better than it used to be. And revisiting our old review of Cerebral Success, when it first came out, it wasn’t all too hot either. Now though, we’ve noticed that SmartX has seen quite a lot more negative reviews on Amazon, mostly noting about their blatantly deceitful marketing strategies. While we won’t say too much about it, you can read some more of those reviews on Amazon.
Pro’s and Con’s
– Still a good formula
– New addition to the formula, Cognizin
– Revamping of new website brings more information
– Cognizin is basically Citicholine, cheap
– Still not as effective as other newer similar nootropics
– Long term effects could still be harmful
Summary: While SmartX is a Bump Up from Cerebral Success, It Still Underperforms.
Despite the new revamping of both the product and the website, we find that Cerebral Success’ SmartX is still not all that good. While we said in our old review of Cerebral Success that it was quite good, revisiting it now, SmartX, despite its improvements, can no longer hold up with the majority of the competition. Marketed towards students, if you don’t want an overly potent nootropic, SmartX might be a good starting point before you move onto bigger things.
