Final Thoughts

8) Final Thoughts on BrainSustain

BrainSustain sets itself up as a unique, innovative, and highly effective nootropic that prioritizes brain health above all using six popular nootropics.

The ingredients appear to be of high quality, with solid research backing their brain health claims.

The only thing we don’t like is how we can’t purchase it normally unlike most nootropics. This may deter many consumers from buying BrainSustain in favor of similar formulas that are more accessible.

Overall, NeuroActives BrainSustain is good enough for long-term brain health. Depending on how your body responds to it, it may also impart focus and memory benefits.

Memory was declining rapidly when I was 50 years old. I’m a physician. Very scary, to say the least. This product brought it all back, and 17 years later, it’s still working great. I take 6 capsules a day. 8 capsules are the max dose if you’re having memory issues daily as I was then. When I stop taking the product, the memory declines again, and I’ve attempted this many times in the past 17 years, so I will stay on this product for life.

I’ve tried others for sure. Nothing I’ve tried works as good. I also use Optimag Neuro starting 2 years ago. Doing everything to keep the brain sharp and so far so good and still practicing!

Pricey… but I found this supplement to assist with word recall while writing essays (coming up with the right word at the right time).


I take 2 caps every day to help my memory retention. Saw the difference when I stopped it several months ago.


Hadn’t taken the capsules prior the purchase, only had the powder prior, so this a effective pleasant surprise. Was a great purchase.
