About Intelleral

Published on: Sep 7, 2016

Whether you’re a student, athlete, senior, or anything else, Intelleral is a natural stimulant that promises to be effective in 60 minutes and deliver hours of improved focus, with no side effects.

In fact, the manufacturer claims that Intelleral is clinically shown to improve focus by delivering natural time-released caffeine that “does not overwork the heart” or “drain the adrenal glands.” This way, we’re told you’ll experience a smooth onset and offset of energy.

Is there any truth to this? In other words, can you realistically expect Intelleral to deliver on its promises, or will it end up being a waste of money? That’s precisely what we’re here to help you figure out. And what better place to start than its ingredients?

What Are Green Coffee Beans?

There isn’t a supplements info label on the Intelleral, which, in our opinion, is a red flag. After all, this is something you’ll be putting in your body and you deserve to know exactly what’s in it.

This concern aside, the only ingredient we’re told about is Whole Green Coffee Powder (WGCP), which the company claims undergoes a “patent-pending process that utilizes all of the acids, fiber, and caffeine.” Outside of the marketing hype, what does science have to say?

We’ve talked about green coffee beans quite a bit here at HighYa, which are simply unroasted coffee beans (hence their green color). Many claim that the high levels of chlorogenic acid contained in these beans can improve sugar processing, blood pressure, and general metabolism in the body.

Green coffee beans are also a natural source of caffeine and antioxidants (substances that may help repair and prevent damage caused by free radicals). But the question is this: Is there any evidence that the WGCP contained in Intelleral can boost your focus?

Will Intelleral’s WGCPTM Deliver Results?

As you probably know, caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, which can temporarily improve focus. The problem is that most natural green coffee bean extracts contain about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, so while this can certainly improve your focus for a short while, the evidence doesn’t indicate you’ll experience the same level of benefits promoted by Intelleral.

But remember, no label is provided on the Intelleral website, so we can’t know exactly how much caffeine it contains. We also searched online for more information about Intelleral’s WGCPTM ingredient, although we didn’t find any usable formulation information.

Important note: We didn’t test Intelleral directly, so we can’t speak from direct experience. What’s written above is our conclusion based on publically available online information.

Will You Experience Side Effects With Intelleral?

We don’t mean to sound like a broken record here, but without a supplements label or third-party information about WGCPTM, we can’t be sure exactly how much caffeine it contains. As such, if you’re especially sensitive to stimulants, you might want to carefully consider whether or not Intelleral is the right choice.

But hold on: what about all of Intelleral’s “clinically proven” claims?

What About Intelleral’s Clinical Study?

Imagine that you’re a new supplements company, and you just received clinical proof that your product—with only one, natural ingredient—could meaningfully boost focus for hours. When marketing your supplement, wouldn’t you be eager to share the results with your potential customers?

We certainly would, so we can’t imagine why Intelleral decided not list a copy of the study on their website. They do include a colorful chart indicating the supplement increased attention by 87%, response inhibition by 61%, and spatial working memory by 32%, but provide no evidence to support it.

Intelleral numbersWhile these are some impressive numbers, Intelleral doesn’t provide any clinical evidence to back them up.

Intelleral’s manufacturer also spends a great deal of space on their website promoting the fact that it was tested at the Cleveland Clinic, where it was “shown to increase focus and concentration for 5-6 hours and minimal to no side effects from participants.” Here again though, they provide no citations to back up this claim, and we didn’t uncover any third-party evidence elsewhere online.

Finally, what about all the doctors who provided their testimonials on the Intelleral website? Most appear to be Naturopathic Doctors of some sort, although it’s important to note that just because someone’s a Naturopathic Doctor (ND), this doesn’t always mean they have a medical degree.

How Much Does Intelleral Cost?

Intelleral is available in the following quantities:

  • 1 Box: $74.95 plus $4.95 S&H
  • 3 Boxes: $149.90 plus free S&H
  • 5 Boxes: $199.85 plus free S&H

Note: According to Intelleral’s FAQ, a 14-day trial is also available for $4.95, after which you’ll be charged the full price of $59.95. Then, you’ll continue receiving a new bottle once per month through their autoship program and charged $59.95 each time. However, this option wasn’t available when we attempted to check out.

All Intelleral purchases come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges and a $19.95 restocking fee, although this only applies to products in their original, unopened package. In order to request one, customer service can be reached at (888)-298-0291 or support@intelleral.com.

What Can We Learn From Intelleral Reviews?

There weren’t any online customer reviews for Intelleral, which is fairly common, since the HighYa team often researches supplements soon after they’re released.

However, we’ve reviewed several other popular green coffee bean supplements, including Premium Green Coffee Bean and Green Coffee Fat Burn. In general (whether here on HighYa or elsewhere online), these types of supplements tend to come with lower than average customer feedback, with most complaints referencing failure to work and high prices. When free trials are present, poor customer service seems to be a common concern as well.

From a company perspective, based on text on their website, it appears Intelleral is brought to you by the same company who manufactures ADDYs Focus, another nootropic supplement.

Again, it’s important to reiterate that we didn’t try Intelleral firsthand, so we’re not saying you’ll necessarily experience the same—only that it might be worth keeping at the top of your mind.

Given everything we’ve discussed so far, where does this leave you with Intelleral?

Should You Place an Order For Intelleral?

In the vast majority of cases, green coffee beans are promoted as a weight loss supplement (versus a focus supplement), since the clinical evidence—however thin it might be—for the chlorogenic acid it contains references only sugar processing and metabolism.

However, other than a slight boost from the natural caffeine content, we didn’t encounter any clinical evidence that green coffee bean—whether part of Intelleral’s WGCP or another formulation—can provide any boost in focus. To this extent, it seems like you might receive much of the same benefit from low dose caffeine pills. And if you want to avoid the “adrenal draining” mentioned on the Intelleral website, you can find time-release caffeine pills online for as little as $12.

    Intelleral

    I bought the pills for a one-time charge of $5 in February, and then without my authorization and knowledge, these people started to charge me $260.00 a month separated by two charges of $65.57 and $70.25, which they slightly vary so the bank will not suspect.

    My account has been charged by KBLIVINGG8776873344 every two weeks in two separate charges of $65.57 and $70.25, for a total of $132 or $260 a month from this people, they are crooks. Watch out. They started with a charge of $5, and then they go and start charging your account this ridiculous amount of money from Mexico, not even from the US so they can protect themselves.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Total rip off

    I tried the sample, and I had NO results! Then I get a lifetime membership for half the price after complaining. I am not paying for this product. I promise to make it my daily task to find every social media site and pass the word on about this scam.

    Do not take this dangerous pill!

    I read several things before ordering a box of this dangerous product. One of the claims was that it "cured" high blood pressure. I really thought that if they made this claim, it could not affect my blood pressure. WRONG.

    My BP at 9 am was 123/76, and within an hour, it was 145/101! And I only took one capsule and had no caffeinated drink at all. I am calling my doctor to find out what I need to do to stop my pressure from climbing.

    Very frightening experience! I did call them, but the person on the line sounded like a VERY young person and was not in any position to speak to me about this.

    I feel very foolish for even believing ANYTHING they claimed in the INTELLERAL site nor any search I did on the internet (looking for more information). I am no dummy (a Master's degree), but this made me feel like an idiot!

    PEACE.

    I actually read the fine print

    • Georgia,
    • Mar 28, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    It does clearly state you'll be charged the full amount if you get the trial & are satisfied. You'll also continue to get future shipments. That's why I opted to pay full price for 1 & not get future shipments. I was also fully aware that it was caffeine. I did a lot of research on the dosage, etc. I didn't expect a miracle. It's caffeine. It gives me steady energy for a few hours. It's good for a midday pick-me-up. Is it worth the price? No, not at all but at least I gave it a try & avoided the negative experience based on my ability to read fine print.

    Don't buy, company does not give money back guarantee

    We purchased Intelleral in November of 2016. The ad looked promising, and I double-checked for the "gotchas" (the small print that stated their terms and policy), and I couldn't see anything, which should have been my first clue.

    It was supposed to be a free bottle to try for 14 days. I thought it was worth the trial and requested my "FREE" product, except for shipping charges.

    I got the product in just a couple of days and gave it a quick once-over, but decided I wasn't interested. What I didn't do was call the factory (there were no telephone numbers listed on any forms, how convenient). Because I had not returned the product within 12 days (not 14), I found a $70 charge from Intelleral for the product. I was livid.

    I searched the internet for a phone number that would give me access to the head office. I called and complained and was told that the terms clearly stated that I would be charged $70 for the free trial if I did not cancel and that another charge for $70 would automatically be billed to my account every month for further shipments. When I challenged the charge, I was told it was fully legal per the terms (which I later found in another ad, and the color of the word Terms was slightly different than the other words and would normally be missed, but beware, it's a link you needed to click on see what you're really committing to).

    After arguing with the Intelleral operator, he said he would return 1/2 of the $70. When I said I would print my feelings about Intelleral on the internet, he offered the full refund. I was told it would arrive in ten days. It has never been returned to our account. On several subsequent calls, I again asked for my refund, and they said I would have to check with my bank, that they couldn't trace it from their end. My bank responded that Intelleral had an obligation to track the return from their end as the bank had no way of tracking this. Intelleral said they issued a refund and would do nothing; it wasn't their fault the money never got back to my account.

    The bottom line is that I believe thousands, maybe millions, have bought into their scam. They want your money and don't care about honesty. They know that most people don't look at the individual items charged to their account, and if they do, they never bother to verify that a refund actually took place.

    I believe Intelleral has made millions off of selling ground-up green coffee beans in a capsule for more than a buck a pill. If you want to sign up and try the product, go ahead. Just don't expect to get your money back when you decide it's not worth paying for.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    If you purchase the trial, be prepared to receive more orders at the cost of $134.90 per order. As far as the claim that's made about better brain function, that may be true. After taking it, I decided to never vote Democratic again.

    This product is a scam

    I ordered Intelleral due to the wonderful advertisement and testimonies by several famous people. I have taken this for a couple of weeks with no noticeable positive effect.

    I was checking my credit card this morning and noticed two different charges pending for the two trial items I ordered from the Intelleral website. I did not request future orders. I was billed $64.95 and then $69.95 (charges pending).I contacted my credit card company to dispute this.

    Do not order from these people.

    This is a scam

    I ordered this in good faith on Facebook. When it arrived, I took it to my doctor who said I cannot take caffeine.

    I did not have any information from Intelleral about the 14-day return policy, or that I would be billed $69.95. I called them and after a long wait (while she tried to find me in 5 or 6 different computer systems), she found my order. She said she canceled it and I would not receive any more. She said the charge is for the pills I was sent.

    Since I did not have this information prior to my purchase I expect a full credit on my account.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    SCAM ALERT - They are stealing money.

    • Fort Pierce, FL,
    • Dec 27, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    As I read the other reviews I couldn't help but think this needs to be a class action suit. I also purchased what I thought was a free 30 day supply for the shipping of 4.95 only to be charged 69.95 15 days later. As I purchased my sample as explained in the pop-up ad I somehow got sucked into, nowhere did it mention a trial and charging after 14 days and since my order was not through their website, I never saw their 'terms & conditions'.

    After getting someone on the phone who was trained not to say the name of their company or anything, I finally got them to refund 50% but they tried to get me not to pursue this with my credit card company, which I refused to do. They say they send out emails to remind you but I received none and on neither of my receipt of purchase or my shipping confirmation does it state the terms anywhere.

    I do not know what the outcome will be but I do feel someone or a group of us should be getting together with the attorney general or someone because although I don't mind as much if they sell a product that doesn't do as they claim, I do mind about having money stolen from me and that is EXACTLY what this company is doing.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      I just went through all this nonsense. I knew there weren't any terms and conditions that I missed because I specifically looked for anything that mentioned "cancellation" or "reoccurring charges" before getting a free sample.

      When I told the representative, they quickly rushed through their salutations and hung up on me. I immediately called my bank to report fraud. I would be happy to be a part of a class action lawsuit, so that no one else will be robbed by these con artists again.

    Scam Company

    • TX,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I ordered the trial of this product. I've tried it once, didn't notice any particular benefits. From what I could tell looking at the product label, it looks like this just gives you a shot of caffeine. I'd rather have the cup of coffee, thank you.

    But what makes this company a scam is that they hit my credit card 3 weeks later for $69.95 without my permission. There was NOTHING in there promotional information indicating that they would do this. They just did it.

    When I called them to get the charge reversed, they said that they had no information indicating that I even had an account with them. That's funny. They just hit my card for $69.95 and they have no record of me being a customer.

    Needless to say, I will be protesting this charge to my credit card company so it will be reversed.

    This could be the greatest product in the world, but I would not do business with this company because of the sleezy, sneaky way that they do business.

    Don't get taken by these snake oil salesmen.
