NeuroLuma is a memory, focus, and concentration formula that’s claimed to help you achieve clearer mental processes, improved concentration, increased energy, boosted short-term memory, drastically increased long-term memory, laser focus, improved brain performance, and a boosted overall sense of health and wellbeing. As such, the manufacturer calls NeuroLuma the “#1 natural cognitive enhancer.”
In fact, by taking 1 pill of NeuroLuma per day, the manufacturer claims that you’re “guaranteed to noticeably improve your focus and memory within the first week.”
In order to accomplish this, NeuroLuma is claimed to contain a cognitive blend of 100% natural ingredients that cause zero negative side effects, including arecholine, choline, DMAE, Bacopa monnieri, and GABA (we’ll discuss this more in a moment).
But while NeuroLuma’s manufacturer might talk a big game, can you really expect to experience these extraordinary benefits from using the nutritional supplement? Consider the following:
Will NeuroLuma’s Ingredients Provide Any Brain Benefits?
While there weren’t any ingredients listed directly on the NeuroLuma website, there were 6 citations shown in the footer that referenced arecholine, choline, DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol), Bacopa monnieri (bacopin), and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
Overall, there is insufficient clinical evidence available showing that arecholine, choline, DMAE, or GABA can reliably provide any of the benefits claimed by NeuroLuma’s manufacturer.
On the other hand, “Some specific bacopin extracts such as KeenMind and BacoMind have been showing to improve memory in otherwise healthy brains, although there is insufficient clinical evidence showing its efficacy for any other conditions.”
With all of this said, there wasn’t a product label provided on the NeuroLuma website, so there’s no way to know how much of each ingredient the supplement contains, or whether or not this is enough to provide any benefits at all.
NeuroLuma Side Effects
NeuroLuma’s ingredients are generally thought to be safe, with relatively rare side effects.
However, high doses of choline (over 450mg per day) can cause sweating, a fishy body odor, and digestive upset, while bacopin can lead to cramping, nausea, and fatigue and shouldn’t be taken for more than 12 weeks at a time.
Again, there aren’t any dosages provided on the NeuroLuma website, so overall side effects can’t be well understood.
Is NeuroLuma, Evo Brain Pill, & Neuroflexyn the Same Product?
It’s no secret that nutritional supplements manufacturers will often create several different product names using the same formulations, sometimes as a result of poor customer reputations (more about this shortly).
With this in mind, there is some wording on the NeuroLuma website indicating that it might be related to Evo Brain Pill.
On top of this, one of the clinical citations for choline posted on the NeuroLuma website actually redirects to the Neuroflexyn website. As such, it’s reasonable to believe that they’re manufactured by the same company, and might even be the exact same product, just marketed under a different name.

NeuroLuma’s Marketing Tactics
Finally, NeuroLuma’s manufacturer uses some fairly underhanded tactics to give their supplement more credibility than it perhaps deserves.
This includes claiming that “Due to recently being featured on T.V., we can no longer guarantee supply,” as well as that the supplement was featured on national networks and publications, such as the NY Times, NBC, Chicago Tribune, and more.
However, these are common tactics used to cause you to make an emotional (versus an informed) purchasing decision, as there is no third-party online evidence showing NeuroLuma has appeared in any of these.
Customers Aren’t Talking about NeuroLuma
There weren’t any legitimate online customer reviews for NeuroLuma available at the time of our research, although we did encounter fake reviews created by affiliates, who earn commissions for each sale of the product they refer. As such, these reviews are intended to appear legitimate, but are really created to cause you to make an ill-informed purchasing decision.
With this said, among the dozens of brain health supplements we’ve reviewed here at HighYa, they have an average rating of 2 stars, based on common complaints of failure to work and problems with the free trial (more about this next). And based on NeuroLuma’s similarity with many of these products, we think it’s likely that you’ll experience much of the same.
From a company perspective, NeuroLuma is based out of San Diego, CA, although they weren’t listed with the Better Business Bureau during our research.
NeuroLuma Pricing & Refund Policy
NeuroLuma is available in the following packages:
- 1 Bottle: $49.95
- 3 Bottles: $119.91
- 5 Bottles: $149.85
Regardless of which option you choose, your order will come with free S&H.
Important note: In NeuroLuma’s Terms & Conditions, a 14-day trial is referenced, where you’ll pay $4.95 S&H and receive a full 30-day supply of the supplement, although this wasn’t available when we attempted to check out (but you might encounter it at a later date).
Then, once your trial expires, you’ll be billed $87.63 for the full price of the supplement, and will also be enrolled in the company’s autoship program. As a result, you’ll continue receiving one bottle of NeuroLuma once per month, and your credit card will be billed $87.63 each time.
These kinds of selling tactics are nothing new, and it’s our opinion that free trials are intended to trick you into thinking you’re getting a good deal, while autoship programs are intended to lock you into recurring shipments for something you probably didn’t really want in the first place. As such, we generally recommend avoiding products sold only through these methods.
Outside of the trial, no refunds are available.
In order to cancel your trial or your autoship enrollment, you’ll need to contact NeuroLuma’s customer service department at 877-673-2094.
Can NeuroLuma Boost Your Brain Health?
Chopping to the point: Overall, considering the lack of clinical evidence showing that NeuroLuma’s ingredients work as advertised, the manufacturer’s less-than-stellar sales tactics, as well as the supplement’s high price, it’s our opinion that NeuroLuma will provide very little value for your hard-earned money.
