The main issue with synthetic ingredients is that you don’t always get what you pay for. In reality, synthetic ingredients are well known for their low absorption, poor bioavailability, and the fact that they drain the body’s reserves of other minerals and vitamins (e.g., cofactors) required for proper absorption of other nutrients.
At BrainReference we recognize that dietary supplements can be the source of many allergic responses either due to cross-contamination with high-allergen compounds during the manufacturing process or because they incorporate ingredients obtained from high-risk allergenic foods (milk, eggs, or fish).
Companies with less integrity will use dangerous fillers as a “grease or lube” to aid in easier and faster production. Artificial dyes and colors are used to make supplements more appealing to the eye. Coatings are added to make capsules easier to swallow. How do these fillers impact your body and health?
Independent testing labs are not associated with the producing company, ingredients supplier, the company whose name appears on the product, or with the consumer. This means independent testing labs have no vested interest in the result of the testing and are less likely to “dry lab” or manipulate test results for self-serving reasons.
Renew G is marketed as an all-in-one solution for various different health issues. The manufacturer is a U.S. Connecticut based company called Cloma Pharma Laboratories, which markets a range of dietary and nutrition supplements. Little information is available on the company.
According to the producing company, this formula is effective in the following directions: fat loss at an increased pace, anti-aging, pre-workout energy elevator, stress relieving, improving sexual feeling, stamina, and sexual endurance. Ultimately, Renew G is supposed to elevate the mood, induce feelings of well-being and positive energy. The product is supposed to work through a mechanism that stimulates compounds relative to amino acids which effectively pass the blood brain barrier.

Renew G is a mixture of herbs and amino acids. No empirical results are provided by the manufacturer to support the benefit claims. However, independent studies have shown some of the key ingredients to be effective in areas the product claims to work.
Dopamine, for instance, plays a major role in the brain system and is responsible for reward-driven learning. One of its known effects in the reward circuit is its contribution in the release of Oxytocin, which reinforces sexual activity. Valeric Acid is known to treat conditions such as insomnia, narcolepsy and depression and to improve athletic performance. Several side effects are associated with the product especially in cases of excess dosage and caffeine sensitive patients, including: dizziness, nausea, chest pains, anxiety, tremors, extreme nervousness, difficulty breathing, euphoria, diarrhea, etc.
No research is provided to support the product benefit claims. Consumer reviews report poor results if any and some criticize the overstated advertising promise of a euphoric and exhilarating formula. Precautions refer to pregnant and nursing women, persons under 21 years old, caffeine sensitive individuals and several other categories of people.
The daily dosage is 3-4 capsules on a light to empty stomach. Dosage can be increased up to 12 capsules a day. A doctor should be consulted and a complete health evaluation is recommended before starting using the product.

The dietary supplement is marketed as a multi-benefit formula that will provide overall well-being and increase energy levels throughout the day. There are a large number of benefits listed by the manufacturer, apparently with no link to one another. Renew G’s ingredients can be obviously linked to most of the product long list of benefits, even though the product itself has not been clinically tested.
Mild to serious side effects are associated with the supplement, frequently more in case of excess dosage or for patients with special health conditions or current medical treatment.
We recommend our readers to get a complete evaluation with their healthcare provider before starting the treatment.
