BrainAlert is advertised as the most effective cognitive enhancement possible. According to the manufacturer, Brain Alert LLC, the formula is based on 24 natural ingredients mixed together in a patent-pending formula. The ingredients are claimed to work by improving oxygen delivery to the brain, and, consequently as neurotransmitter uptake is also improved, the speed of cell communication increases leading to optimum functioning levels of the brain.

The core benefits advertised by the manufacturer are enhanced concentration and reaction time, support for the growth of brain cells, improved short term and long term memory and reduced levels of stress.

The product has been on the market since 2005 and is manufactured by Brain Alert LLC, the product being the only one in the company’s product portfolio. According to the manufacturer, two years of research have preceded the formulation of this supplement. No other websites reference BrainAlert whatsoever, shaking the formula’s credibility.

The manufacturer mentions that over 100 studies which have shown BrainAlert to positively impact memory, mood and cognitive abilities, but does not disclose the details of these studies (methodology, sample size and characteristics, conclusions, etc). The product is subject to a 100% money back guarantee available within a 30-day time frame.


BrainAlert contains the following ingredients: Acetyl-l-carnitine, Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera), Bacopa Monnieri, Bioperine, Choline, CoQ10, DMAE bitartrate, Folic Acid, Ginkgo Biloba, Gotu Kola, Huperzine A, L-Carnosine, Methylcobalamin, N-Acetyl Tyrosine, Panax Ginseng, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, Rhodiola Rosea, Trimethylglycine, Vinpocetine, Vitamin B1 Thiamine, Vitamin B2 Riboflavin, Vitamin B3 Niacinamide, Vitamin B5 Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine, gelatine, Magnesium stearate, Silicon Dioxide, and rice flour.

Product Features

BrainAlert is a potent brain mixture of 24 herbal ingredients, vitamins and nutrients designed to improve memory, mood and concentration.

Some of the most important herbal ingredients included in the formula are the very popular extracts of Ginkgo Biloba, Gotu Kola, Bacopa Monnieri, Ginseng and Ashwagandha. All have been linked to having mood improving, sedative and nerve calming properties.

Ashwagandha for instance has been used by the Indian medicine practitioners for over 3000 years. It possesses adaptogenic tonic properties, meaning it helps the body manage daily stressful situations. Studies so far have shown positive results in nerve regeneration and in improving memory, mood thinking ability. It is considered generally safe when taken by mouth short-term. However, the long-term safety is not sufficiently researched, as large doses are believed to cause stomach problems, vomiting and diarrhea.

Choline is another important ingredient of the formula. It is the precursor for the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine, known to play a significant role in many functions such as memory and muscle control. Daily recommended dosage: one to three capsules first thing in the morning, preferably on an empty stomach with a glass of water.

Still, it should be taken into consideration that the product comes with a 30-day 100% money back guarantee (less shipping charges).

Consumer reviews available are generally positive, but should also be treated with caution since they may be a mere marketing tool.

Although the formula is claimed to be manufactured in a GMP compliant facility and the product has been available on the market for more than 6 years, we recommend caution and advise our readers to see a healthcare provider prior to beginning treatment.

just had a refill for brain alert, that is how much I enjoy the benefits of this formula – clearer, sharper thinking, faster info processing, altogether in a maximum potency formula.


Carl Sheller October 16, 2013 at 3:00 pm

I’ve never had a really hard time at school, but then again I never really felt like putting in that much effort. For my senior year I realized I had to put that extra bit of effort in order to get better grades, and luckily I came across this one. It really helped me concentrate and remember things easier!


Gilbert J October 6, 2013 at 7:37 am

I know that some of the nutrients in this formula are missing from my daily diet and I chose this product especially for this reason. It helped me considerably with memory, as well as focus.


Gerry Carlyn September 3, 2013 at 7:25 am

This was great for me, i really managed to get more things done at work, and even stopped using other supplements, i am very happy how it makes me feel, it is really energetic and cool at the same time, there is no rush.


Bebe August 5, 2013 at 7:58 am

Brain Alert is another brain enhancer that doesn’t work at all. After trying it for a couple of months I decided to look for something else.


Esmond T. July 30, 2013 at 6:36 am

I don’t think that BrainAlert is the most effective cognitive enhancement possible, but I can say that it is decent and compared to other similar products it really does something. So if you spend your money on this, you will get something in return.


Jerrard July 23, 2013 at 8:25 am

It’s good that they offer a full refund in case you are not satisfied with their product. Luckily it wasn’t necessary for me to return the product as it seemed to work for me quite well.


James July 14, 2013 at 12:50 pm

I have read a lot about Brain Alert and I have noticed that it has received considerable positive feedback from their users. My husband also used it and he says that it helped him a lot to focus and concentrate for longer periods of time. Great product!


Mary J July 8, 2013 at 5:29 pm

This is one of my powerful weapons to fight against apathy and fatigue. Once I started taking it I became more energetic and focused and I stopped being afraid of taking responsibilities. BrainAlert has done a lot of good things for me.


Clara June 22, 2013 at 10:59 am

This herbal product gives me a lot of energy. I find it very useful, because I redirect all this energy to deal with tasks that I have been avoiding at my work for months.


Patsy June 10, 2013 at 9:32 am

This stuff has helped me a lot lately. It was able to prevent memory lapses and I manage to organize my tasks better and not to forgive about important activities or promises like I used to. I guess I just found my cure!


Dupree June 6, 2013 at 6:35 pm

I am still torn on whether I should recommend this or not. While I did feel better overall, my metal state fluctuated a lot and I had a few strange days when I felt zoned out. I’m not sure if it is from Brain Alert, so take this with a grain of salt. I hope it will do better for you.


Casey May 28, 2013 at 11:09 am

Although my life was more than I could handle already, I have chosen to complicate it even more. I bought a dog and I have it for almost 4 days and she is driving me crazy. She destroyed my house and my cat is really stressed and she feels abandoned. I am searching for a job, but it is almost impossible to let the dog and go to the interviews. My friend recommended me BrainAlert for a better concentration and an improved management of time. Hope it will work!


Kim May 13, 2013 at 9:55 am

My mother recommended me Brain Alert and I have started taking it, because I felt very tired lately. I have 2 kids and I try to work from home, but my mind is always somewhere else and I can’t concentrate. But lately, I tried to separate my work from my children and it seems to be better. I even got new ideas for my book and I feel more organized and motivated than ever.


Parker April 28, 2013 at 1:07 pm

This can’t possibly be the best solution out there. I’ve taken better supplements, albeit more expensive than this one. It’s a decent supplement with a considerable effect on focus and awareness. I just think the marketing would tone it down a bit.


Ross April 21, 2013 at 11:16 am

Greetings. I am a regular user of Brain Alert and I’m glad to share with you the fact that it has worked well. It has a good price-performance ratio and it consistent it its results. Give it a try. I’m sure you will realize soon if it is suited for you.


Angel April 8, 2013 at 3:46 pm

My mommy was caring enough to give this to me when I was in dire need of some help. It helped me a lot at work and I recommend this to anyone that can’t handle stress well because it will make you feel a lot more in control.


Lucky April 6, 2013 at 7:13 am

I do a lot of math each day for a living and the results I come up with can have serious consequences if they are not correct. I take Brain Alert to keep my focus and I try to not mix my private and professional lives. So far I haven’t had any incidents.


Scott March 29, 2013 at 4:27 pm

I’m a computer programmer and I like this product. It’s very hard for me to focus properly and keep a healthy diet so I take a lot of supplements. So far I like this one best and I think I will keep talking it.


Peter M. March 23, 2013 at 9:53 am

Hi. I’ve been using Brainalert since last fall because I felt I needed help to handle all the hard work my job demands. I am constantly pushing tons of paperwork with a lot of sensitive data and any mistake can cost me my job. All that stress would have been impossible to deal with If I did not have Brainalert.


Heath B Jr. March 14, 2013 at 3:34 pm

I didn’t find it useful, but i did get my money back since they provide a 30-day guarantee. Give it a try, the company seems to be trustworthy.


Ed Berny March 6, 2013 at 6:45 pm

I was impressed by the possibility of receiving the money back in case you are not satisfied about results. So, having nothing at all to loose (except time to order) I decided to give it a try. Now I am happy I did so. You may give it a try!


Floyd T. March 2, 2013 at 8:16 am

I’ve noticed slow but steady improvements in my ability to concentrate while using this. It’s a very useful supplement if you have a very stressful life and you feel like you are having problems handling it all. I recommend you give this a try.


Janine February 21, 2013 at 1:33 pm

From my experience, BrainAlert seems no different that other brain nutrition supplements. It works but it’s not so great as they tell you in ads and reviews. And there are some on the market that are cheaper than this one.


Rick C. February 14, 2013 at 6:13 pm

BrainAlert seems to be one of the best supplements I’ve tried. I’ve been taking it for five months as I have quite a demanding job and have not experienced side effects since. This is the first time I’ve read that it contains herbs that are not safe for longer use. Now I don’t know whether I should keep ordering the product. Has anyone used BrainAlert for longer than five months? Thanks!


M Craig May 17, 2012 at 6:05 pm

By far one of the best brain supplements. A little bit to expensive but it worth every penny!


Andrea April 24, 2012 at 10:28 am

Highly recommended supplement!


Not Bad :) January 11, 2012 at 2:38 am

Got my first bottle from Amazon too (followed your link here) and I was able to purchase it with a significant discount. Thank you! :)


Jimmy November 21, 2011 at 12:25 pm

BrainAlert works great for me. However, I have one piece of advice for those interested in this product: check the label first. It has like 25 different ingredients, some with potential dangerous side effects.


Matt D. December 11, 2011 at 3:00 pm

I subscribe to this. My friend got BrainAlert to help him with exams. After about 1 week he started feel really bad. He discontinued the treatment immediately and his condition improved.
