Neurofuse for Mental Performance — Does it Really Work?

[quads id=3]

From the official website, we can read that Neurofuse is a product that’s designed to increase your cognition using clinical studied ingredients.

It is said that Neurofuse will:

  • Sharpen your focus
  • Improve mental performance and cognition
  • Make you feel more alert
  • Increase your energy
  • Decrease stress
  • Elevate your memory

It seems to be the perfect Nootropic for those of us that are studying or work a lot in front of the computer (where it’s easy to drift off to Reddit or Facebook).

Anyways, with so many mind drugs and smart drugs on the market, it’s hard to know what is what, and what’s working.

In this post, we’ll take a look at Neurofuse, and I’ll share my experiences after using the product. I have combined what I could find from clinical studies, along with my personal experience after using it for a month.

What is Neurofuse?

Neurofuse is a Nootropic or smart drug, sold and marketed by BD Health Partners, LLC. The company is based in New York, and they have their entire production based here in the US. According to Bloomberg, they’ve been in business for about five years, which is longer than most pharmaceutical companies (some re-brand every year!).

I also did some research on other brands under their umbrella, and they seem to be a large and serious company, so I felt confident when I bought it that this might be a serious product.

I know quite a few people that have used Neurofuse, either all the time, or in periods where they need an extra boost in focus and concentration. This includes start up founders, writers, journalists, and law, engineering and medicine students.

What are the ingredients?

In Neurofuse you have several natural ingredients, each one with a specific purpose. These ingredients includes:

BACOPA MONNIERI

This is a herb, and also a powerful antioxidant. It is known to increase cognition and memory.

RHODIOLA ROSEA

A herb, with its origins in Scandinavia, combating stress and fatigue.

CAFFEINE

We all know about the effects of caffeine. This is a well researched substance, and the mind stimulating effects of caffeine are well documented. It is also known to make you feel more energized, both pfysically and mentally.

L-THEANINE

An amino acid known to reduce stress and help you focus.

PHOSPHATIDYLSERINE

Phosphatidulserine is vital to cognition and memory

CHOLINE BITARTRATE

Works by boosting acetylcholine levels-the “learning” neurotransmitter involved in numerous mental processes

DMAE BITARTRATE

Clinical studies have shown that dmae bitartrate helps increasing acetylcholine levels and helps reduce buildup of compounds that can impair brain function

HUPERZINE A

Inhibiting enzymes that breaks down the key neurotransmitter acetylcholine

VINPOCETINE

Derived from the Periwinkle plant and suggested to enhance blood flow to the brain while also reducing neural inflammation

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID

A fatty acid involved in energy metabolism suggested to be a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound

VITAMIN B12

Essential water-soluble vitamin used to boost energy, mood, and concentration while potentially slowing aging

VITAMIN B6

Essential water-soluble vitamin used in neurotransmitter synthesis and for treatment of Alzheimer’s and ADHD

VITAMIN D3

Essential vitamin that can support improved mood, cognition, well-being and countless other benefits

Does the science check out?

If we look past the fancy wording and flashy websites: does the science really check out?

We’ve looked into some articles from scientific journals to verify that it’s not just bullshit. Since we’re dealing with a industry which is full of marketing, smoke and mirrors, I’m generally skeptical to anything that’s marketed to me.

So whenever I buy a new product, I really like to dig into the science, and even call friends that are medical doctors and psychiatrists to get their opinion.

One study published in Neuropsychopharmalogy (a journal from Nature.com) in 2002 shows that Bacopa Monnieri (part of the Neurofuse stack) has a good effect on human memory.

A group of 76 men between 40 and 65 years participated in a double blind randomized placebo test, where a variety of memory functions were tested, along with levels of anxiety. The test showed a significant improvement of memory and the ability to learn new information.

Another double blind placebo control study tested the effects of Rhodiola Rosea (also part of the Neurofuse-stack). The study, published in Phytomedicine (2000), examined the effects on students experiencing fatigue during an examination period.

Conclusion from the above study:

The overall conclusion is that the study drug gave significant results compared to the placebo group but that the dose level probably was suboptimal.

Huperzine A and Vinpocetine also shows good results in clinical studies, while we couldn’t find conclusive results for the other ingredients. This doesn’t mean that they have no effect, but either that someone hasn’t done a thorough study, or the results are inconclusive.

My experience with Neurofuse

When I first started taking Neurofuse, I didn’t feel a instant effect like many people report. Instead, I feel a stronger focus throughout the day, and I especially feel a strong difference at the end of the workday.

Where I used to drift off, and had trouble concentrating, I’m now able to work longer and still feel focused. It’s like I’m getting more out of my time.

I also feel more awake when I get back home. I actually have more energy, and I don’t feel like all I want to do is slump down on the couch and watch TV. I have energy to hit the gym and spend time with my kids.

Do I recommend it?

It depends. If you’re a student, or have a job where you need to stay focused like I do (I’m self employed, so I really try to get more out of my time without burning myself out), I definitely recommend it. It keeps my mind sharp, and allows me to really focus on what I do. Where I earlier was easily distracted, checking my Facebook, thinking about my holiday or something I read on Reddit, I’m now able to actually work.

It’s funny. When you work for yourself, it feels like you’re always working and never working. Actually sitting down and concentrating, allows me to separate work and free time. I can imagine it’s just the same if you’re one of those who have to take your job with you back home, because you can’t get it all checked off in your work time.

It’s also on the cheaper end when it comes to Nootropics, it’s US made and it only contains natural ingredients.

It’s easy to recommend it, as they offer a risk free trial with a full refund if you’re not happy with it — or for whatever reason really. Point being that if you’re not happy, you haven’t wasted a cent. You’ll be one experience richer, and you know what works and what doesn’t work for you.

Where to buy Neurofuse?

The best place to get it is at their official website. This is also by far the cheapest, since you’re cutting the middle man and buying straight from the source. You can find it at other places too, like Amazon, but I haven’t personally bought from them, so I can’t tell you if it’s good or not.

You can pick it up for the best price here

If you buy from the official website, you also get a 30 day money back guarantee. If you’re not entirely happy with the product, or if it doesn’t work for you (some supplements simply don’t work for everyone), you risk nothing.
