Iluminal’s advertised core benefits are mood enhancement, expanded wakefulness and support for memory and mental sharpness, without the crash in energy level commonly associated to caffeine or other caffeine based energy boosters.

The manufacturer also offers a comprehensive breakdown of the ingredient list.
The formula is non-habit forming and is designed for people who need to improve their productivity, to active people who need to keep up with their daily tasks or anyone who wishes to boost their mood. The formula is not indicated for pregnant or nursing women.
Iluminal is the manufacturing company behind the product, however little information is available on the company history, origin, production facilities and ownership.
Iluminal includes the following ingredients: Vitamin B5 (as pyridoxine hydrochloride), Folate (folic acid), Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamine), N-Acetyl-L Carnitine, Subutiamine, 2-Benzhydrylsulfnylethanehydroxamic Acid, and 5-Hydroxytryptophan.
Iluminal is a blend of vitamins, amino acids and other chemicals designed to replenish the brain and support cognitive performance.
5-HTP is an amino acid, a chemical precursor in the synthesis of Serotonin and Melatonin, two of the most important neurotransmitters in the brain. Serotonin is involved in mood regulation processes, whereas Melatonin is known to play an important role in regulating sleep cycles. 5-HTP has been the subject of many research studies which tested its properties as an anti-depressant, as a sleep remedy, or as a treatment for obesity. Still, results for many of these tests were inconclusive or more research is needed to reach a conclusion.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is another amino acid known for its beneficial antioxidant properties and its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. It, therefore, helps protect the nerve cells from deterioration and is used for memory related problems. Side effects include restlessness, nausea and vomiting. Also, it may increase the frequency of seizures, so patients with a history of seizures should avoid taking it.
The manufacturer mentions no side effects associated to the product; however, it advises patients to always seek the advice of a healthcare professional prior to taking the formula. Recommended daily dosage is 1 capsule a day taken in the morning.
