Neuroxium claims to be a safe, natural cognition enhancer that is formulated based on years on research to reverse years of memory loss, triple memory recall speed, and enhance overall quality of life, regardless of your age.
In fact, by rewriting old brain cells and immediately making you more alert, sharp, and intelligent, Neuroxium is claimed to be a “memory boosting miracle” that can “create a young mind.” Because of this, Neuroxium claims to have been voted the #1 brain enhancement supplement in the US.
In order to accomplish this, Neuroxium claims to contain the following ingredients:
- Ginkgo biloba
- DMAE Bitartate
- St John’s Wort
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Green Tea Extract
If you just finished reading through the Neuroxium website and are a little leery about some of their over-the-top claims, we don’t blame you. But what’s the bottom line; is Neuroxium effective, or just another supplement scam? Consider the following:
Is Neuroxium Clinically Proven?
There is a graphic featured on Neuroxium’s website that claims the supplement was shown to increase working memory, long-term memory, processing speed, and even claims to have provided “huge results from day 1.”
We’re not told where these numbers came from on the Neuroxium website.
However, we’re not informed how these numbers were tabulated (e.g. clinical study, user survey, etc.), and no citations are provided.
As such, it’s our opinion that these are either overblown or completely made up.
Is Neuroxium’s Ingredients Effective?
Ginkgo biloba has been shown to slightly improve mental function in adults and modestly improve symptoms related to dementia, while phosphatidylserine may be effective for treating symptoms of age-related mental decline and Alzheimer’s. Similarly, vinpocetine may slightly increase the thinking skills in Alzheimer’s patients.
In addition, bacopin may improve memory, although clinical research has only been performed on specific bacopin extracts such as KeenMind and BacoMind.
However, there remains insufficient clinical evidence showing that DMAE Bitartate, St John’s Wort, alpha lipoic acid, or green tea extract can provide any of the benefits claimed by Neuroxium’s manufacturer.
With this said, there isn’t a product label provided on the Neuroxium website, so there’s no way to know if it contains enough of each ingredient to be effective in the first place.
Side Effects for Neuroxium
Overall, most of Neuroxium’s ingredients should be well tolerated by most individuals, with the most common side effect as digestive upset.
Keep in mind that green tea contains relatively mild caffeine levels, so it may cause restless and/or insomnia.
Neuroxium’s Advertising Tactics
Finally, perhaps because there’s insufficient clinical evidence showing that most of Neuroxium’s ingredients are effective, the manufacturer resorts to some less-than-stellar advertising tactics to get you to make an emotional purchasing decision, versus an informed one.
This includes making you think that there’s such a huge demand for the product that they’re having difficulty keeping it in stock, which, in our opinion, is completely false.
In our experience, this almost certainly isn’t the case.
Another tactic often used to build credibility for a supplement is to claim that it’s been featured in a variety of popular media outlets and publications. However, in the instance of Neuroxium, we didn’t uncover any third-party verification showing this to be the case.
There isn’t any evidence available online showing that Neuroxium was featured in any of these media outlets.
Why Aren’t Customers Talking About Neuroxium?
Neuroxium was a very new product at the time of our research, so there were no online customer reviews available.
Speaking of which, there isn’t any manufacturer information provided on the Neuroxium website, which should be a big red flag any time you’re thinking about buying a nutritional supplement.
Neuroxium Pricing & Refund Policy
Neuroxium is available in the following options:
- 1 Bottle: $89
- 3 Bottles: $159
- 5 Bottles: $199
According to Neuroxium’s Terms, “products may not be returned unless the product is defective or damaged.”
Regardless, there isn’t any company or contact information listed on the Neuroxium website, so even if refunds were available, it’s not made clear how you’d go about requesting one.
Can Neuroxium Improve Your Brainpower?
Chopping to the point: As we mentioned in our Truth About Memory Supplements article, most of these nootropic and “brain boosting” supplements, Neuroxium included, contain ingredients that have very little (if any) clinical evidence proving they’ll work as advertised.
Because of this, in addition to Neuroxium's less-than-stellar advertising tactics and very high price, we’d recommend avoiding it and speaking with your physician about more effective methods of boosting your memory and recall.
