Neuro Plus is offered by a company called Welcome Recovery, which advertises it as a potent nootropic able to assist with memory, focus and concentration. This one capsule per day dietary supplement should help users achieve superior cognitive performance (mental clarity, focus, learning capacity), while also promoting better mental and physical energy and balanced emotional state.
This premium brain stimulant as it is called is free of caffeine or artificial stimulates, as well as of artificial binders and fillers, which is a plus. Herbal and non-herbal ingredients come together is a supplement designed to be used by adults over the age of 18, with certain exceptions. Precaution is advised for people who have blood clotting problems, are on anticoagulants or at risk of bleeding (including patients who intend to undergo surgery). Other categories include but are not limited to people trying to conceive, and patients with a history of seizures.
The manufacturer does not have an official page, which makes information on company background or manufacturing facilities rather hard to obtain; not to mention ho this lack of transparency reflects on this product’s evaluation.
Neuro Plus contains the following ingredients: Neuro Plus includes the following ingredients: Ginkgo Biloba (as 24% extract), Phosphatidylserine Complex, N-Acetyl-l-Carnitine HCL, St. John’s Wort (as 3% hypercine), Glutamine, DMAE Bitartrate, Bacopa Moniera, Vipocentine, Huperzine-A, and vegetable cellulose.
Looking at the ingredient list of this formula, it is easy to notice that the formula lacks originality, uniqueness and fails to differentiate itself from other nootropic supplements. Ginkgo Biloba, Vinpocentine, Huperzine A and St. John’s Wort are almost always included in cognitive enhancers such as this one. More or less, their benefits are supported by scientific evidence. However, more often than not research evidence is inconclusive or conflicting and a clear conclusion cannot be drawn.
Take for instance St. John’s Wort. While there seems to be evidence that herb may reduce symptoms of mild to moderate depression, it does not seem to work in major depression cases. This is what one study concluded.
Another study found the herb to be no more effective than placebo for treating the same condition. While other studies are ongoing it would be fair to say that some patients may feel the benefits of this herb, while others may not; this happens to other drugs or herbal extracts as well.
While science fails to understand how exactly it works, it appears that St. John’s Wort works as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), a popular type of antidepressant such as Prozac, Celexa, and Zoloft. SSRIs increase the availability of the brain chemicals serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine.
The supplement also features DMAE, N-Acetyl-l-Carnitine HCL, and Phosphatidylserine as core ingredients. There is a 30 day money back guarantee available, but we are not sure what it covers (unopened or opened bottles).
- Large number of consumer testimonials
- A 30-day money back guarantee covers the formula
- No artificial stimulants, binders or fillers
- Ingredients that are commonly linked to brain-function boosting benefits
- There is no official manufacturing website
- The majority of reviews give the formula a full 5 star rating which is odd
Neuro Plus is as close to a nootropic dietary formulation as it gets. It features both herbal and non-herbal ingredients, and it includes some of the most popular cognitive enhancing ingredients on the ingredients list. Unfortunately, it is very similar to what is already on the market, and the fact that the manufacturer does not own an official presentation page where we can go for credentials does not work to make the formula’s case for a premium, all-natural cognitive enhancing formulation.
Also, one must be cautious with a formula with almost 90% of reviewers giving it a 5 star rating. While this may mean an impressive (and very rare) satisfaction degree from consumers, it may also indicate that some of the reviews are fake and that someone is trying to influence the product’s reputation in ways that wrongfully represent its actual potential value. Do ask the opinion of your healthcare provider if possible.
