Doxiderol is a brain supplement marketed as having three core benefits: it increases mental focus, enhances memory and helps boost energy. The product manufactured by Mentis Laboratories is claimed to be an all natural formulation manufactured in a GMP certified laboratory. Metris Laboratories is a New York based company dedicated to manufacturing all natural supplements designed to help people achieve their goals. The company’s only product is Doxiderol, with no other information being available on production facilities or company background and history.
The supplement contains several ingredients with different work mechanisms on improving memory, energy and concentration. There are ingredients that support neurotransmitter synthesis and functioning, antioxidants, brain blood flow enhancers and stimulants such as caffeine. Doxiderol is designed for healthy adults who seek for a safe way to increase their mental energy, focus and memory.
Doxiderol contains the following ingredients: Vinpocetine, Bacopa Monnieri, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, L-Theanine, Caffeine, and Citicoline.
Doxiderol is a combination of herbs, amino acids and other nutrients in a formulation which is claimed to produce benefits almost immediately (within 15 to 20 minutes of use). Vinpocetine is a chemical compound which resembles a substance found in the Vinca Minor plant. The key benefits of Vinpocetine derive from its peripheral vasodilator ability. Therefore, it has been shown to increase cerebral blood flow and to have neuro-protective properties. It helps support brain functions such as memory and concentration and it activates cerebral metabolism by increasing cerebral synthesis of ATP, known as the universal “currency” of energy.
In terms of medicinal applicability, Vinpocetine has been used as a prescription drug in Europe since 1960 and was prescribed in cerebrovascular disorders, in age-related cognitive impairment treatment, as part of short-term memory loss treatments and to alleviate symptoms of tinnitus. Vinpocetine is generally well tolerated but may cause stomach, pain, sleep disturbances, migraine headache, nausea, dizziness or nervousness.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is naturally produced in the liver and kidneys, but can also be taken from certain foods such as poultry, fish, dairy products and red meat. Recent evidence shows it may have neuroprotective properties. Acetyl-L-Carnitine may be able to reduce attention deficits in patients with Alzheimer’s disease after long-term treatment, as well as in mild cognitive impairment treatment. One study showed a slower rate of cognitive deterioration (measured as verbal critical abilities and memory) in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease who were treated with Acetyl-L-Carnitine. Furthermore, there is research that investigates its potential benefits in Parkinson’s disease treatment. Acetyl-l-carnitine is considered a safe supplement, in doses lower than 3 g/day. Otherwise, mild side-effects may appear, such as vomiting, rashes, diarrhea and a fishy body odor.
No side effects or special precautions are mentioned by the manufacturer. Reviews generally mention that the formula is effective and report increase in energy, easiness in focusing and provides mental clarity without any dangerous side effects.

Doxiderol is marketed to support memory, energy and focus capacity for healthy people who are going through brain and mental function challenging periods. However, the individual ingredients have been researched for a much wider spectrum of benefits, including in the prevention and treatment of serious neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and some mild cognitive impairment diseases. Therefore the formula, which received extremely positive consumer reviews, may prove effective in achieving extra benefit for the brain and mental function.
Some ingredients however have been known to cause certain side effects. Also, for many of them research is still undergoing and daily dosages are yet to be established. This is why we recommend you carefully read the label and further research the product as compared to alternatives.
