Brain Booster is a supplement and nootropic which claims to improve memory and concentration, along with providing natural energy and mental stimulation. It is sold by Bayberg, a company known for having two popular products in the dietary supplement field. This is almost a multivitamin with nootropic elements, something which should have a lot of benefit for most people. The company says this is one of the best cognitive enhancers on the market, and they just might be onto something.
Brain Booster contains the following ingredients: Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Folic Acid Pure, Biotin 1%, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenomethionine, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Potassium
Brain Booster features 21 vitamins and minerals, the amino acid selenomethionine, and a special blend developed by Bayberg. There’s also molybdenum, an element found in some metals and minerals. The blend includes well known ingredients like choline, green tea extract, DHA, and phosphatidylserine.
Phosphatidyl-based supplements are often made from vegetables like cabbage or soy. Unfortunately Bayberg doesn’t tell us where the phosphatidylserine comes from. However, it’s key in maintaining cellular function. It’s supposed to promote communication within brain cells and help develop neutrotransmitters. Like several other ingredients, it can improve learning and memory. The effects are often subtle for healthy adults, since their brain tends to be in good health by default. There are newer versions of phosphatidylserine being studied, although their effectiveness is often considered equal to current versions. It’s not known which version is used by Bayberg.
- Servings are an appropriate size. The vitamin C is slightly higher than necessary, but everything else looks good. Taking a half dose or higher dose wouldn’t be the best idea. It wouldn’t hurt to have more vitamin D, but the amount is still higher than that of many similar products.
- This is a combination nootropic and multivitamin to ensure you get maximum benefit for your mind and body.
- Doesn’t list the amounts or sources of each ingredient for Bayberg’s proprietary blend. It’s common to see some of the ingredients, like DHA and green tea extract, but we don’t know how much of each will be in each serving of Brain Booster.
- The formula could use minor tweaks for optimization. Aside from the unknown quantities in the proprietary blend, a couple of vitamins and minerals have amounts that could be changed without negative impacts. Decreasing the vitamin B6 and increasing the calcium, for example.
Brain Booster is a good supplement to add into your daily diet. The vitamins and minerals make it attractive even for people who don’t understand nootropics that well. Bayberg’s additional blend and the amino acid inclusion should serve most people well. A few reviewers have said this supplement has a subtle effect, which is normally good, but that could also be indicative of a not so potent nootropic stack. Beginners and advanced nootropic users alike will enjoy Brain Booster, although it seems best suited to beginners because it isn’t the most potent formula. Still, almost everyone who takes it enjoys it. Reviews and testimonials are overwhelmingly positive.
