BrainEffect Premium is marketed as a superior dietary supplement designed to help maintain healthy brain function and mental performance. According to the manufacturer, the formula works by providing the brain with necessary nutrients, naturally depleted due to stress, lifestyle or diet habits, therefore restoring optimal memory and concentration levels.

The product targets adults and teenagers who experience a decrease in their concentration and memory capacities during challenging periods and need a short-term boost in mental clarity and focus.

The formula is manufactured by BrainEffect, a company founded in 2008 in Germany which currently manufactures and markets two products: BrainEffect premium and BrainEffect Academy. The company distributes the products in 8 European countries and bases its production facilities and headquarters in Germany.

The product is subject to a 60-day money-back guarantee, although the specific details of such policy are available only in German.


1) What is BrainEffect Premium?

BrainEffect Premium is a blend of vitamins minerals and herbal ingredients designed to assist patients with concentration and memory capacities.

Guarana is one of the core ingredients of the formula. Guarana is a plant which commonly grows in Brazil and has been used by the Amazon tribes in the form of an energy boosting drink. Modern research has identified the plant’s active substances are caffeine and two closely related alkaloids (particularly theobromine and theophyllin), thus explaining its energy enhancing properties.

Today, the plant is widely used in a variety of products and for a great number of needs such as weight loss, energy drinks/products, athletic performance enhancers, low blood pressure treatments or sexual desire enhancers. Side effects associated to Guarana occur rarely and usually in case of long term use or high doses and include nausea, rapid breathing, vomiting, agitation and increased heart rate.

The formula also contains much of the B-Vitamin complex vitamins, which have been shown by research to contribute to memory improvement processes by creating a protective shield for the neurons in the brain.

2) Ingredients of BrainEffect Premium

BrainEffect Premium includes the following ingredients: Thiamine (Vitamin B1), Niacine, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic acid, Magnesium, Zinc, Iron, Guarana-extract, Caffeine (from Guarana), Cordyceps-Sinensis-extract, Omega-3-powder, Coenzyme Q10, Algae extract, Green-tea-extract, and Orange aroma.

3) Does BrainEffect Premium Work?

Presented as a combination of herb extracts, vitamins, and Omega-3 in a powder form, BrainEffect Premium should enhance memory while improving concentration and focus levels. This remedy contains Guarana extract.

Evidence has shown that Guarana is a shrub found in Venezuela and Amazon forests. Its fruits are small, red and contain seeds that are black. These seeds are highly rich in caffeine, containing up to four to eight percent of caffeine per seed, which means three times the amount of caffeine found in coffee. This is the main reason for their stimulating and increasing mental alertness properties. In Brazil, people drink soda with traces of Guarana in it for the health tonic effects. However, the consumption of Guarana products, specifically in high doses, may lead to some side effects such as lack of sleep, nervousness, nausea, and stomach irritation.

Another ingredient found in BrainEffect Premium is Omega-3. Omega-3s are fatty acids viewed as essential to the human health. However, they can’t be produced by the human body. Thus they should be taken from foods or supplementation. Research has shown that among their properties, the most important are: reduction of inflammation and risks of chronic diseases as well as enhancement of cognitive and behavioral functions. Deficiency of Omega-3 leads to mood swings, poor circulation, weak memory and dry skin. Side effects include stomach upset, fishy breath, and loose stools.

I started taking two capsules a day of Brain Effect Premium. Since I had very limited time in hand to complete my thesis and prepare for exams, I started getting up early in the morning to study. Very often I would go to a park nearby to get some fresh air and study there. And that helped too. In less than a month’s time I experienced such a boost in my mental stamina and energy that studying, researching, and doing my job didn’t seem to be a challenge anymore. My anxiety and stress level reduced well enough to make me more calm and relaxed while I prepared for my exams. Love it!


Interesting experience, enhanced brain function, no need for coffee/energy drinks. Disadvantages: Somewhat expensive


I had a hard time to study the amount of courses like anatomics, chemistry,… But these pills really helped me to hold on information I read. For my first semester I passed all my exams and I am going to order some more bottles for the rest of the year! It gave me also more energy.
