Nootropic Supplement Reviews of the Month!

The Qualia Review: One of the Best Premium Nootropics or is it All Hype?nootropic

Check out our latest review about the latest nootropic supplement called Qualia. They claim to be a very high-end, premium nootropic supplement. They seem to be mentioned all over social media these days.

Therefore, we had to find out what the hype was all about!

Our Qualia Review examines the supplement and tells you absolutely everything you need to know about the product and my experience using it.

Is the premium price justified? Is Qualia worth all of the hype?

I have had a ton of people asking for our opinion on Qualia. 

Is Qualia truly the “Mercedes Benz” of nootropic supplements? 

Qualia had to live up to very high expectations to receive the green light of approval. This isn't a review you want to miss!


Project “Noo You” – NooShift Review  nooshift nootropic supplements

“Project Noo You,” developed two new products claiming to significantly improve the mind and body. NooShift contains some powerful and potent nootropic supplement ingredients. They claim the product can noticeably improve focus, concentration, attention, motivation, mood, and memory.

However, more potent doesn't automatically mean a product is guaranteed to be better.

The NooShift review shows how it stacked up against the competition. NooShift comes from the same team that created NitroVit, a popular nootropic supplement we reviewed earlier.

Would NooShift turn out to be an enhanced version of NitroVit or a completely different product?

Our NooShift review explains how it works, what it is supposed to do, and what the results were after using it for an entire month. 


Awaken ReviewAwaken mind power

Awaken caught me by surprise. It is one of the most recent nootropic supplements to hit the market. Awaken is comprised of a unique formula that aims to provide both short-term and long-term cognitive benefits. 

The Awakened Alchemy team was very confident and proud of the intense science and research that went into designing the Awaken formula. They claim their formula will noticeably improve focus, attention, concentration, mood, memory, motivation, productivity, and more.

There is no caffeine or stimulants in the formula but the potent and powerful ingredients inside Awaken are supposed to produce a noticeable boost in overall mental energy. 

The Awaken review explains everything you need to know about the new “premium” nootropic supplement on the block and details my experience using it for over a month. 

Will Awaken be a surprising addition to the 10 best brain supplements of 2017 or fall short on expectations at the end of the day?


trubrain brain food barstruBrain Nootropic Brain Food Bars – 

The doctors and neuroscience team at truBrain have created another first in the nootropic supplement industry. They were the pioneers of designing the first-ever liquid nootropic stack with their signature truBrain “think drinks.” 


They have developed the first nootropic brain food. They claim the healthy snack bars not only benefit the brain and improve cognitive function but overall health as well. 

We recently tested and reviewed the new healthy nootropic brain food snack bar designed to improve focus, mental clarity, mental energy, and provide an extra pep in your step in the morning and/or mid-afternoon. 

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about whether or not a snack bar could truly produce noticeable cognitive benefits. However, they do not discourage using your regular or additional nootropic stacks while consuming their new “brain food.” The only thing I was certain about is that I had never seen or tried a nootropic stack like this before. 

Did truBrain produce one of the best brain foods with a new innovative product or fall short of providing effective cognitive benefits? Find out everything you need to know in our latest nootropic brain food bar review from truBrain. 


truBrain Review (Updated New “Think Drinks” Formula: 2017)best brain supplements

TruBrain is a product that we have already reviewed twice in the past. The first time was to test their original and unique formula. The second time was to test the enhancement of that formula.

Well, the neuroscience team at truBrain has gone back to the drawing board to enhance their product again. Very few nootropic supplements we have reviewed contain the number of potent nootropic ingredients that truBrain does.

The recently updated truBrain review reveals whether or not these enhancements actually improved the product.

The new formula includes the addition of potent and powerful nootropics like Oxiracetam, Uridine, Centrophenoxine, Noopept, and more Piracetam. Again, sometimes more doesn't always mean better.

Find out if the newly enhanced truBrain formula is a winner or a loser! 


Mind HD reviewThe All-Natural Mind HD Review

We had already reviewed the original, all-natural Mind HD nootropic supplement.

However, they have recently updated and enhanced the formula. Does the natural nootropic supplement provide noticeable cognitive benefits?

The Mind HD review talks all about the all-natural nootropic ingredients in the newly enhanced formula and my personal experience using it. 



Nootropic Brain Supplement Scams – Nootropic Supplements to Avoid!brain supplements

Not all nootropic supplements are created equal.

They have proven to range anywhere from great, to good and bad.

Unfortunately, there are also some companies that are simply taking advantage of a growing market.

These are the brain supplement scams.

We have come across some products that not only fail to offer any type of benefit but also use deceitful marketing to sell their products under false claims and pretenses. 

Read about some of the worst brain supplement scams we have come across over the past 5 years.

It is just as important for you to learn about products you should avoid as it is to find the ones that may benefit you. Be sure to read our list of brain supplements to avoid.


Have Trouble Falling Asleep at Night? Spend Your Nights Tossing and Turning? 

A Nootropic for Sleep That You Can Try Free

Alternascript, LLC, the same company that created OptiMind, officially released a brand new “Sleep nootropic” supplement.

The best part?
Restup reviews

Focus Here and Now has exclusive rights to provide completely FREE trial samples of the new sleep nootropic supplement called, “RestUp!”

Sleep Deprivation and ADHD Sleep Disorder 

Sleep is a very common problem for millions of people across the world. It can be even more common for those struggling with ADHD symptoms.

ADHD sleep disorder can be extremely frustrating and can aggravate ADHD symptoms even worse!

I have personally struggled with sleep deprivation and even bouts of insomnia. It would be a challenge for RestUp to work on me.

Find out what I thought about RestUp in the official RestUp supplement Review.


Katy Review – Is Katy Really an All-Natural “Party” Smart Drug? Katy review

Katy and Chloe are unlike any other two nootropic supplements we have reviewed in the past. 

The overall purpose of Katy is to provide a natural and safe “smart drug” that is capable of delivering a euphoric feeling of “bliss” to the user.

They say it is comparable to the feeling some people get using harder party drugs like MDMA or “Molly.”

We put this unique supplement with nootropic ingredients to the test to reveal whether or not it truly delivered a feeling of “bliss” or a feeling of disappointment.

Read the Katy review to find out, here and now!

We also talk about another nootropic supplement made by the same company called, Chloe.

Chloe is meant to scrub the brain clean of any damage you may have done to it. It is supposed to rid the brain of toxins and even make the use of Katy more effective.

Did Katy and Chloe deliver or was it all hype?


brain pillsThe BrainStack Review and UnWind Review from Maven Labs

A natural nootropic supplement called BrainStack is said to improve focus, concentration, attention, memory, mental energy, and overall cognitive functioning.

Did Brain Stack deliver on their claims and produce the results they claim?

The same company also developed a nootropic sleep aid.

The UnWind review is the complete opposite of BrainStack.

The purpose of UnWind is to provide a natural way to improve the overall quality of sleep. It is supposed to help the user fall asleep faster, stay asleep, and wake up feeling refreshed. As someone who struggles with ADHD sleep disorder, it would be a challenge to impress me.

Did UnWind help me sleep better?


Addieup reviewAddieUp Review – An Alternative to Adderall?

I am never a fan of products that market themselves as being similar to prescription medications.

Adderall is a powerful prescription medication sometimes prescribed to those struggling with ADD and ADHD.

AddieUp uses word-play to perhaps attract an audience into believing their nootropic brain supplement was a perfect alternative to Adderall.

I tested the product and provide a comprehensive review detailing what you can expect from taking AddieUp. 

Read the AddieUp review. Find out why this one simply wasn't for me and does not fall into a list of nootropic supplements I would recommend to others.

nooshift nootropic supplementsWe Test Out Project “Noo You” in Our NooShift Review

NooShift was not technically designed for beginners. 

It contains some of the more potent and powerful nootropics found in most nootropic supplements on the market.

There are significant levels of one of my personal favorite nootropics called, Noopept and other potent nootropics that work synergistically well to potentiate their overall effects and benefits. 

The NooShift review talks about all of the potent ingredients that comprise a formula created by the same owner and neuro-science team that developed NitroVit.

Most importantly, I discuss how it worked for me and made me feel during the entire 1-month testing period.

Plus, I purchased some extra bottles of the product that I am going to give away to some lucky readers for FREE. Check out the review, here. I also want to find out what you think of NooShift! Therefore, make sure to leave your feedback on the review or contact me directly. I would love to hear your opinions!



trubrain reviewThe New truBrain Review

I was surprised to learn that truBrain had enhanced their formula yet again.

Since I always keep reviews up-to-date, I decided to revisit the liquid nootropics to find out if the enhancements to the formula truly improved the quality of the product. 

The updated truBrain review reveals the potent and powerful nootropic ingredients added to the formula. There is literally no other nootropic stack like it on the market. However, what makes truBrain work and is it the best option for your specific cognitive needs and goals?

I discuss my entire experience using the “new and improved” truBrain.



Awaken ReviewAwaken mind power

Awaken seemed to come out of nowhere with a unique stack of nootropics that have the potential to work synergistically well. I tested Awaken for over a month to find out if this “premium” supplement would live up to the premium price.

I go into detail about my experience using Awaken and whether or not I believe it was effective enough to earn a recommendation. The Awakened Alchemy team seems to pride themselves on the intense science and research that went into creating Awaken.

alpha brain instant

Alpha Brain has become one of the most popular supplements on the market. It was one of the very first supplements that utilized nootropic ingredients as a primary component of their products.

After a ton of requests, we finally got around to reviewing it from top to bottom. 

Find out if all of the hype surrounding Alpha Brain is warranted.

They were one of the first pre-formulated nootropic supplements to hit the mainstream. Did they start a trend or just an idea that others perfected?

NooCube contest


NooCube is an all natural nootropic supplement. However, they claim you will start feeling the effects of their high-quality natural nootropic ingredients within the first 20-30 mins of taking it. It is also said to provide a noticeable boost to overall focus and mental energy.

Would it still work quickly and efficiently without any stimulants like caffeine? Find out how NooCube stacked up against both natural and synthetic nootropic supplements on the market. They claim to be one of the healthiest and effective options.

Use the exclusive promo code: “FHN15” and you can try it for 15% OFF your entire order. This offer is only mentioned here and now. Yoou will not find it mentioned in the review so be sure to copy it if you are interested in trying it.

Updated Nootropic Supplement Reviews

** UPDATED New Review is LIVE – Do The Creators of CILTEP Hit the mark with their new company and products from Axon Labs?*

Mitogen and Nexus Reviews (By Axon Labs) 

Mitogen and Nexus by Axon Labs were a popular request received from readers asking about their overall quality. 

As someone who has grown to love and appreciate high-quality nootropic supplements and takes them on a regular basis, Mitogen and Nexus nootropic supplements contained some ingredients I had not seen in any other nootropic supplements. 

Both supplements are comprised of nootropic stacks that you don't commonly find in many of today's popular pre-formulated nootropic supplements.

I break down my experience using both supplements individually, as well as by stacking them together, which is claimed to potentiate the overall nootropic effects and cognitive boost you will feel. 

Mitogen Nootropic Supplement

Mitogen is comprised of a nootropic stack that includes; R-Lipoic Acid, Sulbutiamine, Idebenone, “BioPQQ.” along with Vitamin B-5 and Vitamin C for what again is claimed to provide a unique and effective Mitochondrial effect. 

Nexus Nootropic Supplement

Nexus, also from Axon Labs is comprised of the following; Aniracetam, CDP Choline, Phosphatidylserine, and Pycnogenol.

READ the OFFICIAL New Review of the potent and from Axon Labs – Be sure to read about them and my experience using them individually and together as a combined powerful nootropic stack, here and now. 


modalert2. Modafinil Review 

We Review ModafinlStar to determine whether Modafinil and Armodafinil are TRULY the Most Potent Smart Drugs Available, Today! 

We spent over a month testing and reviewing 2 brands of Modafinil and 1 brand of Armodafinil offered by ModafinilStar. 

After months of inquiries and interest from our readers asking about Modafinil and whether or not we felt that the hype was warranted, I finally pulled the trigger and decided to test it out.

Modafinil and Armodafinil may not be for everyone.

However, anyone wanting to know more about Modafinil and what to expect from using it, NEEDS to read our comprehensive review!

We have received a TON of requests asking about Lumonol. It has been described as a powerful nootropic supplement formula.

Researching the ingredients found in Lumonol, it was fairly obvious that the intent was to create a potent nootropic stack that was different from the others. 

Lumonol certainly has a unique formula and the fact that it is very different from many others has attracted the attention of many. 

While I was a intrigued by Lumonol's nootropic ingredients, it was not the first thing that peaked my interest.

Lumonol has been mentioned in multiple forums and websites as a potential alternative ADHD treatment.

While, I would never make this type of bold claim, it certainly caught my attention. I have struggled with ADHD my entire life. It will absolutely be addressed in the official review. 

The official Lumonol Review is coming very soon and while I don't want to spoil anything by sharing specifics quite yet, I will say that it is one of the more potent and effective nootropics we have tested in quite a while and I believe it will meet the cognitive needs of many people who are specifically looking for the benefits the product delivers.


**UPDATE** NitroVit – One Of The Best Nootropics for ADHD?best nootropics

As someone who has lived with ADHD for their entire life, I can confidently say that Nitrovit is hands down the best nootropic supplement to help specifically address a variety of ADHD symptoms. 

It is safer than many of the ADHD prescription medications out there and effective on the very first day of use.

Nitrovit's newly enhanced formula is the best to date and quite simply has me saying, “Wow!”

If you want one of the best nootropics for ADHD and for anyone looking to improve focus, concentration, attention, and memory while reducing feelings of stress and anxiety, you need to check out Nitrovit.

Read the review and get a bottle. Then, be sure to report back and share your experience with us!

Upcoming Nootropic Supplement Reviews of 2017: 

Upcoming nootropic supplement reviews will include a product that is certainly not afraid to “focus” on mental energy, the “smart drug” that literally EVERYONE is talking about and trying to get their hands on, a brain supplement created by an MLM company that got upset with our comment in a recent article that revealed various brain supplement scams, as well as the NEW and claimed to be improved, nootropic “think drinks.”

Brain Supplement reviews later in the month will include:

MindLab Pro, Ignite, BrainStack, UnWind, CrossEnergizer by Green Guru Nutrition, NuCulture, NatureThin, BrainForza, Thrivous, Focus Supplements, Momental Mind and many others!

We are always open to new suggestions and recommendations so never hesitate to contact us with your specific requests. There is virtually nothing out there that I won't personally test and review!

A Nootropic Brain Supplement MLM Program

Nerium EHT – This was not a brain supplement that I had any intention of reviewing until I received some distraught feedback in response to our article about brain supplements to avoid, from members of the MLM company, Nerium, who were a little upset with the brief comments that we made.

Nerium EHT was not one of the products that we had actually tested, which was made clear in the article.

However, the comments were based more on negative feedback I had read about the company, as well as feedback received from former members of Nerium. In fairness, this still does not mean that the product or the company are scams, which is why I decided to keep an open mind.

I was contacted by a couple of very nice women who were representatives of the company and who were defending the product and the company.

They each had an admirable passion and therefore, I offered to conduct a formal review of the product and the company if they cared to send product samples. Well, they did and we will be sharing the completely unbiased results of our experience and research, later this month!
