About Intelleral

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.

    Beware that the 'free trial" means that you automatically subscribe.

    I am also having trouble finding someone to talk about this. Will keep this updated as I proceed with this deception although I must plead guilty of not completely reading the contract. The price incidentally is $69 dollars which is quite expensive for what is really just caffeine pills.

    I doubt whether the editors will let this go thru so if you do not find it on a site other than the Intelleral site it is because they considered it "spam" and did not publish it.

    I leave to any reader who finds this in on the alternate site for consumer deception to interpret.

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

    Useless

    • Phoenix, AZ,
    • Nov 15, 2016

    I received the pills as ordered and took them as directed. All I experienced was mood swings and became angrier. Must have either been a placebo and my anger was self-brought, or this useless pill is a scam, and the creators should be shamed. I strongly believe in the latter. Now, not only is my anger multiplied, but I am out of almost $150. At first, I believed I got a great deal on this cool pill I heard of on TV. How naive of me. I apparently paid $4.95 as an up-front fee so they could get a hold of my digits and take more out of my account a month later.

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

    SCAM

    This product is a scam. DO NOT BUY. This product was sold to me on a 14 day free trial with a huge catch. I paid about $10 for the shipping and handling and thought that this was all the money I would regretfully give over to this product. However, in the fine print the trial needs to be canceled or else you will be paying the full price soon after.

    I was given a full-size product and then made to pay a lot of money after the fact when I had wanted only a small supply to test the product. I am a struggling nursing school student right now and have $70 sucked from my bank account unknowingly.

    When the original order was placed there were also several pop-ups for other products as I was being navigated to the purchase confirmation page. This is where I mistakenly clicked on another product to add to my purchase on accident in an attempt to exit the pop-ups. When I tried to call and cancel the additional product I was coerced into receiving a 50% discount on future purchases to keep the add-on. I begrudgingly agreed because if I liked the products I may have considered buying more.

    The rep for the company did mention that these were recurring charges, but she neglected to mention that if I was unhappy with the products (and I wasn't thrilled by them) that I would need to cancel within this 14 day window or I would be charged full price for both products. This was discounted (thank god) but I am now out $70 that I did not have to throw away like this.

    I think this is an irresponsible company and hope no one else gets swept over like I did while purchasing this product. If I had known that after the 14 days were up I would be billed $70 I would have canceled that very day. I am severely unhappy with the very sly way this entire purchase was dealt with. I would advise against buying this product now.

    I did try the product as well and it made me feel jittery and antsy. I personally felt awake, but not very focused. I will continue to take my not-so-free trial since that cost is a huge hit for something that sits in a drawer, but I advise to be aware.

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

    Intelleral is NOT how it is advertised. Do not buy

    Interlleral is pretty much just a TON of caffeine. It failed to make me focus more, and when I purchased it online, they automatically set me up to pay for the supplements every month (automatic withdrawal from my bank) without my knowledge.

    When I called them to cancel, they charged me a $20 cancellation fee. The entire thing is a total rip off, and the effects and benefits that were promised through the medication are not accurate.

    If you're looking for the same results of 5 cups of coffee through a single daily pill, then I guess this is the supplement for you. Otherwise, don't waste your time.

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

    Paid for the product but it never arrived.

    I read about this product on 10/23/2016. Money was taken out of my account on the 10/24/2016. No confirmation number has been sent to me and no telephone either. Tomorrow I am going to the bank to ask for help.

    Don't do it.

    • WA,
    • Oct 24, 2016

    I tried the product for three weeks and noticed nothing outside of what several cups of coffee would do. It's the trial period that you need to be wary of. I was charged three times for shipping. Including for a chamomile calm product that I specifically did NOT order. They send you a 30 day supply BUT the trial period is 14 days. So I ended up with roughly $100 in charges that I can't get back as "it's against policy". Based on the products lack of production, sketchy dosing information, nonexistent ingredient list and scammy cancel policy, I'd recommend that you pass. I don't mind trying this stuff when it comes out, but if they go out of their way to deceive the consumer on what it will cost to try, I'm out.

    Intelleral

    Beware of this company as they use deceptive advertising practices. The web page I found them on was a fake CNN story with Anderson Cooper and Stephen Hawking and a few others giving testimony about use and benefits. Don't fall for this scam as many other companies are using same fake story to promote their garbage.

    It's as good as a scam

    • Minnesota,
    • Oct 13, 2016

    Like most company selling supplements, they get a recurring payment on your card and make a huge deduction afterward. And this particular product is as good as just getting a good blend of your coffee, so not worth.

    Pleasantly surprised

    Tried the free offer. Grateful. As a stage three breast cancer survivor, this has definitely been helpful with my chemo brain. Placebo effect or not, I am very pleased with my individual results.
