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 allegedly work by improving oxygen delivery to the brain, and, consequently as neurotransmitter uptake is also improved, the speed of intercellular communication increases, optimizing brain functions.

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

The product has been on the market since 2005 and is manufactured by Brain Alert LLC, as the only product in the company’s portfolio. According to the company, the supplement manufacturing was preceded by two years of research. No other website references BrainAlert whatsoever, which calls into question the formula’s effectiveness.

The manufacturer mentions 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 BrainAlert Ingredients

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, N-Acetyl Tyrosine, Panax Ginseng, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, Rhodiola Rosea, Trimethylglycine, Vinpocetine, Vitamin B1 Thiamine (4 mg), Vitamin B2 Riboflavin (4 mg), Vitamin B3 Niacinamide (20 mg), Vitamin B5 Pantothenic Acid (20 mg), Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine (4 mg), Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin (24 mcg), 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 mood improvement, sedative and nerve calming properties.

Ashwagandha, for instance, has been used by the Indian medicine practitioners for over 3000 years. It has adaptogenic properties, which means it helps the body manage daily stressful situations. Studies conducted so far have shown positive results in nerve regeneration and improving memory, mood and thinking abilities. It is generally considered safe when taken orally in the short term. However, 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 Acetylcholine’s precursor, a neurotransmitter known to play a significant role in many functions such as memory and muscle control. Daily recommended dosage: 1 to 3 capsules first thing in the morning, preferably on an empty stomach with a glass of water.

  • The formula is covered by a 100% money back guarantee;
  • The formula is prepared in an FDA approved facility that follows current GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) guidelines;

BrainAlert is a dietary supplement designed to improve memory and other important cognitive functions. The large number of ingredients is not a guarantee to ensuring the wide spectrum of benefits marketed for the formula. 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.

    If you’re a customer service representative like me, then you know that a stressful day is an average shift. With Brain Alert, I found that I was more in control of my emotions at the end of my shifts and that I could focus better on what was actually going wrong.

  2. 2

    BrainAlert helped me get back on track. I’ve gained my lost focus back, and now I find it easier to concentrate and work longer hours. I can’t recommend this product enough!

    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.

  4. 4

    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!

  5. 5

    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.

  6. 6

    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.

  7. 7

    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.

  8. 8

    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.

  9. 9

    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.

  10. 10

    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!

  11. 11

    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.

  12. 12

    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.

  13. 13

    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!

  14. 14

    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.

  15. 15

    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!

  16. 16

    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.

  17. 17

    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.

  18. 18

    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.

  19. 19

    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.

  20. 20

    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.

  21. 21

    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.

  22. 22

    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.

  23. 23

    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.

  24. 24

    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!

  25. 25

    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.

  26. 26

    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.

  27. 27

    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!

  28. 28

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

  29. 30

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

  30. 31

    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.

      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.
