Ingenious Energy is a dietary supplement manufactured by NeuroLogical Nutrition. The formula should help promote superior mental and physical energy, as well as boosting focus capacity. The supplement is best suited for adults who experience intense mental workouts (professionals, students, etc.) or who simply need a fast acting natural solution towards achieving optimal cognitive function and tonus.
The manufacturing company NeuroLogical Nutrition, is a U.S.A. based privately held company which markets two formulations, the Ingenious Energy and Learning Leverage. A Learning Leverage for children formula is prepared for release; however the manufacturer does not disclose a launching date.
The formula is available as powder, packed in 30 individual sacks, so usage becomes easy and convenient. The official website does not mention any dosages for the main ingredients, and since it is only available for purchase directly from the manufacturer, it is hard to obtain these pieces of information anywhere else.
Ingenious Energy contains the following ingredients: Ribose, Acetyl Carnitine, GPC (glycerophosphphocholine), Phosphatidylserine, L-Phenyalanine, Gingko Bilboa extract, Pomegranate extract, CoEnzyme Q10, and Caffeine.
The formula contains a number of different ingredients, including popular herbal extracts like Ginkgo or pomegranate extract. The antioxidants in the pomegranate juice contribute to the overall well-being as well as having specific benefits for the brain. It prevents free radicals from damaging brain cells and may indirectly help achieve or maintain healthy brain function by protecting the heart from free radicals. These fruits contain high amounts of glucose, which the body uses to produce energy more than other nutrients. This is why some believe that pomegranate juice can give the body and the brain a boost in energy if consumed first thing in the morning.
Ribose is another important ingredient in the supplement; it is a carbohydrate with vital roles. Ribose can be taken from dietary sources in small amounts, but also from supplements, which are typically advertised as pre physical performance enhancement. Ribose helps with DNA and RNA synthesis but is particularly important to the manufacturing of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the main energy source of cells. Therapeutic applications of the substance are being studied, but evidence indicates certain degrees of effectiveness for conditions like congestive heart failure, angina, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
The supplement contains caffeine, which may come with certain side effects especially for caffeine sensitive individuals. Ginkgo Biloba may cause problems to people with a blood clotting condition, and other side effects may be associated with some of the other ingredients.

Ingenious Energy is one of the numerous dietary supplements claiming to support mental and physical energy and focus, and while the combination of ingredients provides some credibility to supporting these benefit claims, there is no evidence to attest to the formula’s effectiveness. Consumer feedback lacks altogether, especially since the supplement is only sold through the manufacturer’s website which does not provide a “testimonials” section. Ingredients dosage and ingredient origin are also not disclosed, making it hard to evaluate potency. Additionally, the manufacturer’s identity is not disclosed, in terms of business ownership, facilities, and production standards, etc. which is something that we would catalog as a red flag.
