According to the producing company, Brainol is different from other brain supplements because it offers a unique dual-action formula that energizes and fuels the brain. It is claimed to be fast active, effective, and safe.

Is this supplement supreme as claimed? Should you use it? Read below our Brainol review and find all answers to your questions!


1) Brainol at a Glance

Brainol, a vegan-friendly dietary supplement, is formulated and endorsed by doctors, as the company claims. It is manufactured in FDA registered laboratory that meets the highest standards. As claimed, Brainol’s manufacturing facility is GMP certified and abides by the highest FDA guidelines.

Brainol is a multi-action formula that provides a number of benefits. All 19 ingredients were carefully selected based on clinical data supporting their positive effects on memory, concentration, and focus.

Brainol combines several proven “brain enhancers” that support brain health, such as L-Tyrosine, Ginkgo Biloba, L-Theanine, B vitamin complex, Ginkgo Biloba, etc.

For example, one of the ingredients, L-Tyrosine is an amino acid popular in brain supplementation. It is used due to its multiple health benefits such as fat burning, anti-stress effects, and it improves a person’s mood as it is included in the production of neurotransmitters – brain messengers.

L-Theanine, which can also be found in green tea, has been researched and proven to help lessen physical and mental stress.

As claimed, Brainol optimizes mental energy, improves memory, sharpens focus, increases mental clarity and endurance.

  • L-Tyrosine 200 mg: is a non-essential amino acid used in the synthesis of several hormones and neurotransmitters.
  • Phosphatidylserine Complex 150 mg: is essential to help communication between neurons and maintain memory function and neuroplasticity—the dynamic capacity to replace damaged neurons and make new ones.

3) Does Brainol Work?

Brainol is advertised as a highly effective brain-boosting and mind-shopping supplement that helps keep your energy up both physically and mentally.

As stated above, the formula contains a carefully selected group of ingredients.

However, although advertised as a unique formula that is not similar on the market, this is not unique as the company would you like to believe.

Many of these ingredients are beneficial, but how beneficial are they when used together in the same formula?

Although almost all ingredients separately have been shown to enhance concentration, focus, and energy, there is no research that examined the effects of these ingredients combined. In addition to this, the concentration of several ingredients in Brainol is very low. Because of that, it is not possible with certainty to say whether there is any effect due to the low concentration of the number of ingredients.

There is a limit on how much active substance manufacturers can put in their supplements. The more ingredients a brain supplement has, the lower concentration of each ingredient is used.

Bottom Line

8) Our Bottom Line

Although Brainol promises multiple benefits, it can’t be told with certainty does this supplement provides the effects it claims to have.

There are many positive reviews and testimonials online.

However, scientifically, this combination of ingredients needs to be clinically tested, so we can recommend this product, as this is still a new formula.

In addition to this, Brainol contains many different ingredients, and a number of these are only available in trace amounts. Because of this, we believe that this supplement is unlikely to make a real, significant change.
