About SuperBrain

By HighYa Staff

Using a natural, maximum strength formula, SuperBrain is a cerebral enhancement complex that can help you overcome mental fatigue, restore memory loss, and improve concentration and focus. You’ll also be able to increase your energy and boost your brain’s performance.

After taking SuperBrain, its powerful ingredients and stimulants will immediately go to work boosting your brain’s acetylcholine production. You can expect to feel the effects within 30 minutes, and they’ll last for hours!

This is why SuperBrain’s manufacturer claims that the supplement “unlocks 100% of your brain’s potential.”

Is all of this true? Is SuperBrain really some kind of super pill, or will you pay too much for an underperforming product?

Let’s answer these questions by first learning how your brain processes information.

How Does Your Brain Think?

This is a hugely complex (and in many ways, largely unknown) topic, but here’s a quick overview:

After you perceive something (a sight, smell, feeling, etc.), information is stored and transmitted between brain cells through electrical impulses. The point (or gap) where these electrical impulses take place is called a synapse.

Whenever an electrical impulse occurs between a synapse, it releases chemical messengers known as neurotransmitters, which transmit information inside and outside your brain (e.g. forming memories, telling your leg to move, your heart to beat, etc.).  And one of the primary neurotransmitters is acetylcholine, which is responsible for attention, arousal, and muscle activation.

As we get older though, our body begins producing less and less of these essential neurotransmitters. In turn, this leads to (among other things) cognitive decline, such as frequently forgetting where you put your keys or forgetting someone’s name.

This mild cognitive impairment (MCI) isn’t usually serious enough to impact most people’s lives, but it can certainly be annoying.

Is there anything contained in SuperBrain that can help the situation?

SuperBrain’s List of Ingredients

We’re not told how much of each ingredient SuperBrain contains, but we are told it includes the following: tyrosine, GABA, bacopa monnieri, alpha GPC, vinpocetine, and huperzine A.

Tyrosine might be effective for improving mental performance and memory, but only under stressful situations, “such as military training [and] cold-induced stress.” Or, in very specific circumstances, such as improving alertness following a lack of sleep.

Vinpocetine is listed as possibly effective for having a small effect on the decline of thinking skills, although the body of evidence is relatively old and of questionable quality.

Finally, huperzine A may improve memory in Alzheimer’s patients and otherwise healthy individuals.

Outside of these, there’s insufficient evidence showing that any of SuperBrain’s other ingredients will provide any cognitive benefits. And even for the ones with some clinical evidence behind them, we think the effects will be much less apparent than the company makes it seem.

Possible SuperBrain Side Effects

Alright, so SuperBrain’s ingredients might not be quite so revolutionary, but will they cause any unwanted side effects?

The good news is that—if you experience any side effects at all from SuperBrain—it will probably only be mild digestive upset.

In rare cases, alpha-gpc may also cause insomnia, dizziness, or skin rash.

But remember: We’re not told how much of these ingredients are in SuperBrain, so it’s impossible to say what kinds of side effects you might reasonably expect.

Side effects or not, will SuperBrain cost you an arm and a leg?

Is SuperBrain Expensive?

SuperBrain is available in the following packages:

  • 1 Bottle: $49.85
  • 3 Bottles: $113.82
  • 5 Bottles: $149.95

Regardless of which quantity you choose, you’ll also be charged $4.95 S&H.

Very Important Note: If you choose the single bottle option, you’ll be enrolled in the company’s autoship program. What’s this mean?

You’ll continue receiving a new bottle of SuperBrain once a month, and your card will be charged $40.85 plus $4.95 S&H each time!

All SuperBrain purchases come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. Opened bottles will also be charged a $9.95 restocking fee.

In order to request a refund or stop your automatic shipments, SuperBrain’s customer service department can be reached at 855-404-0005.

How does SuperBrain’s price compare to the competition?

In General, Are Nootropic Supplements Effective?

Over the past couple years, we’ve reviewed dozens of popular brain health supplements (aka nootropics), including Addium, Geniux, Evo Brain Pill, and many more. What’s the overall consensus?

Most online customers (here at HighYa and elsewhere online) don’t seem pleased with their experiences, often citing failure to work, high price (most are in line with SuperBrain), and poor customer service (difficulty cancelling automatic shipments, unable to process refunds, etc.).

Is this what you can expect from SuperBrain? Based on our experience, we think it’s definitely something you should keep at the top of your mind.

Here’s the Skinny about SuperBrain: Is it So Super?

The Bottom line is that we’ve got a whole lot of concerns about SuperBrain: no product label, questionable ingredients effectiveness, high price, and poor track record for nearly identical products.

Pro tip: For an in-depth look at this, be sure to read The Truth About Memory Supplements.

Want even more reasons? All the social media buttons on the SuperBrain website lead to the ordering page, which can be one sign of a website you should question. Also, the company claims to have sold more than 26 million capsules of SuperBrain to date, but their site’s only been effective since September 2015 (doing the math, this means they’re claiming to have sold 860,000+ bottles in just two months!).

Are we specifically saying that SuperBrain is a scam? No, but all the signs point squarely in that direction.

As such, instead of ordering SuperBrain, we might recommend trying these tips for improving and maintaining your memory.

    Useless and expensive

    • California,
    • Feb 9, 2016

    I purchased five bottles. The first bottles gave me a month's worth of loose stools. At that point my 30 day guarantee was up. Now the company will not refund the other four months worth of their useless, over priced, JUNK.

    The Customer Service representative that I spoke to was not even able to answer my questions about ingredients. I need to know what caused this adverse reaction in my body. You would think these supplements would be off the market at this point.

    Buyer beware, they can't even tell us what is in the bottle!

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

    Tried to order 1 bottle. Order was declined, went to bed and woke up with a $149.95 charge.

    I was going to order one bottle for $20.00 and when I found out they wanted $49.95 for one bottle I declined the order. Four days later I receive five bottles of Super Brain which I had never ordered. I called the phone number which was listed on my bank charge as Mind Control and got a "sorry this number is no longer in service." I opened the envelope in which the 5 bottles were in but there was no paperwork what so ever. As to how to return the five bottles and get my money back, I don't know. The bottle said Super Brain, so I was finally able to call customer service and was told that I placed the order for 5 bottles. My mind must be really bad because I declined the order and my bank showed that I had declined a $95.50 order. I supposedly ordered $149.95 worth of bottles. I guess I lost my mind.

    Anyway, I was given an RMA number, but was told that there would be a $9.95 restocking fee for each bottle. I told her the bottles have not been opened and according to what I read that there would only charge a restocking fee if the bottles were open. She told me if the bottles were open that they would not even give a refund. So much for their 30 day refund policy if not satisfied with the product. I guess it's going to cost me $49.95 in restocking fees for something I didn't order.

    Beware, this company will be gone tomorrow with your money!

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