The manufacturer of Neuro-Maxx claims this is a scientifically formulated brain supplement which provides support to the nervous system, enhances brain circulation and regulates neurotransmitter activity. Dr. Venessa’s Formulas, the company which manufactures the product, claims that in this way the formula will assist with mood regulation, boost memory and learning functions, improve sleep and mental alertness and optimize overall mental function and performance.
The manufacturer makes these bold benefit claims without bringing any piece of scientific evidence to support them. Neuro-Maxx is based on a blend of herbal extract enriched with various other important cognitive and nervous system nutrients.
Additionally, the manufacturer claims Neuro-Maxx is therapeutically formulated so as to minimize prescription interactions and to counteract potential nutrient depletion that leads to brain underperformance.
Neuro-Maxx contains the following ingredients: Thiamin (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin (Vitamin B-3), Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, 5-HTP (L-5-Hydroxy-tryptophan) (Griffonia simplicifolia), Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) Bitartrate, GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid), Ginkgo Biloba (leaf) extract, Gotu Kola Extract (Centella asiatica), L-Glutamine, L-Tyrosine, Passion Flower powder (Passiflora incarnata), Phosphatidylserine, Rhodiola Rosea (root) extract, Suntheanine L-Theanine, Yerba Mate extract, Dicalcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, Stearic acid, magnesium stearate, croscarmellose sodium, silica, pharmaceutical glaze, and peppermint oil.
The main ingredients of Neuro-Maxx are various herbal extracts, including those of Gotu Kola, Rhodiola Rosea, Passion Flower and Ginkgo Biloba. These are some of the most widely used herbal remedies in the world with more or less proven brain and cognitive function benefits.
Gotu Kola has been historically used in the Ayurvedic medicinal practice, starting thousands of years ago. Back then it was mostly known for its wound healing properties, still widely recognized for today. Gotu Kola is also recognized as a cognitive function enhancer, especially beneficial for memory. Several studies have concluded it may be effective in treating anxiety. An experiment involving 40 healthy adults conducted in the United Stated showed that subjects taking Gotu Kola were less likely to be startled by new noises, as a sign of anxiety. Gotu Kola has also been endorsed as an effective remedy against mental and physical fatigue, depression, panic attacks, insomnia, psoriasis and various skin conditions. Side effects of Gotu Kola are rare and include itching, nausea, drowsiness, stomach problems, and others.
DMAE or Dimethylaminoethanol is a naturally occurring substance which has received positive reviews as an aid in ADHD treatments, where it seems to improve learning abilities of patients. Although scientific research is needed, it seems that DMAE helps improve memory, concentration and mental clarity, while reducing the potential for developing cognitive impairing conditions. Oral supplementation with DMAE may rarely cause headaches, insomnia, and muscle tension.
Neuro-Maxx has received a limited number of reviews from consumers. Six capsules daily is the recommended dosage.

Neuro-Maxx is advertised as a therapeutically formulated dietary supplement, although there is no relevant evidence provided to support the combination found in the product. The fact that there are no consumer testimonials, research studies, clinical trials available on the product is concerning. This, plus the fact that the product is not covered by a money back guarantee makes trial difficult and a purchase decision hard. Information on manufacturing facilities and other production standards are not disclosed by the manufacturer.
On the other hand, there is abundant information on most of the core ingredients, including various research and clinical studies which testify to their effectiveness. We recommend you do a thorough research before using this product.

Is Neuro-Maxx Right For You?
Neuro-Maxx is advertised as an herbal remedy approach to brain supplementation that helps rebalance mental activities for improved alertness and motivation and to optimize mental functions for better job performance. The company that produces this supplement is Dr. Venessa’s Formulas, a company which claims to have won numerous industry distinctions.
The company offers its formulas through a vast network of retailers throughout the United States. The company founder Dr. Titus Venessa is known as an Author, Lecturer, and Research Scientist in the fields of Food Sciences and Integrative and Complementary Medicine, with a Ph.D. degree in Neuropsychology and Sciences and Nutrition. While these may stand as strong credentials, each formula should be analyzed separately from ingredients included.
The claims behind this remedy are quite bold. For instance, the manufacturer argues that Neuro-Maxx is scientifically formulated to provide all the essential neuro nutritional supplement ingredients to support the nervous system, enhance good circulation and modulate neurotransmitter activities which play a significant role in mood regulation, sleep process, and emotional balance.
Ingredients of Neuro-Maxx
Neuro-Maxx includes the following ingredients: Thiamin (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Niacin (Vitamin B-3), Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, 5-HTP (L-5-Hydroxy-tryptophan) (Griffonia simplicifolia), Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) Bitartrate, GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), Ginkgo Biloba (leaf) Extract, Gotu Kola Extract (Centella Asiatica), L-Glutamine, L-Tyrosine, Passion Flower Powder (Passiflora incarnata), Phosphatidylserine, Rhodiola Rosea (root) extract, Suntheanine L-Theanine, Yerba Mate Extract, Dicalcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, stearic acid, magnesium stearate, croscarmellose sodium, silica, pharmaceutical glaze, and peppermint oil.
Effectiveness of Neuro-Maxx
Dr. Venessa’s Formulas claims that Neuro-Maxx helps rebalance mental activities for improved alertness, memory, mood and motivation, while also helping alleviate stress, depression and ADHD symptoms. However, these claims are not backed up by any scientific data or research, as it happens with most dietary supplements. Not only that but an herbal remedy approach is limited in what it can offer the person who wants to experience these benefits from a supplement.
This is a very similar approach to many other herbal remedy approaches. They do include some amino acids, which is a good thing, but they could be blocked from passing the blood brain barrier (and therefore nourishing your brain) by the herbal ingredients contained in the formula. This is an unfortunate, but real side effect when companies try to include as many ingredients, from many different sources as possible.
Remember that the claims made by this manufacturer, or any other company can only work if the ingredients can get across the blood brain barrier, and enter the brain. It is important to know that such ingredients will not pass if they are not accompanied by the right amino acids and neurotransmitters.
Another important thing to mention is that the website is not as informative as we have seen from many other brain supplements. There is very few information available to the public about the supplement and what it can offer. There are also no testimonials or feedback sections from previous customers. This is something that we look for, and something most consumers want to see before giving a supplement a try.
Remember that if you want to improve your mood, clarity of thought and memory, then you need to have the most natural ingredients in your body, and then in your brain. The blood-brain barrier will only allow certain things into the brain fluid, so focus on amino acids and neuro-nutrients, instead of Neuro-Maxx.
Compared with other similar products, Neuro-Maxx is an averagely-priced brain supplement. A bottle of Neuro-Maxx contains 120 tablets, which should be enough for one month of treatment at a recommended dosage of 3 tablets a day. This supplement is available for purchase from numerous online retailers, and a full list is provided by the manufacturer (search after ZIP code is possible). If you choose to place your order online, please take into consideration the shipping and handling costs as well. No details on a money back guarantee are made available.
Does Neuro-Maxx Work?
The formula does include some amino-acids which are a good thing. Also, the supplement appears to contain some high quality, well known herbal extracts, vitamins, and minerals. Unfortunately, like with most herbal supplements, this supplement too may be effective as a short-term treatment only.
The lack of relevant information (testimonials, clinical studies, trials) is also concerning. Information is a key feature in our reviews, and many consumers want to see it before giving a supplement a try. The manufacturer falls short on offering reliable information about the formula, even when it comes to the most basic of details (ingredients, quantities, dosage recommended, etc.).
