1) What is IQ150?

IQ150 contain9 herbal ingredients in a formula designed to assist with specific areas of brain health.

Cognizin or Citicoline (known as Cytidine 5’diphosphocholine) is a naturally occurring compound. Citicoline is known to play two key parts in promoting brain health: firstly,it intermediates the synthesis of Phosphatidylcholine; secondly, it boosts Acetylcholine synthesis. In addition, Citicoline may work as an antioxidant, adding to its potential health enhancing benefits.

Evidence is limited in what concerns the effectiveness of Citicoline. There is preliminary evidence that the substance may increase memory, mental acuity, and mental energy in old age people who are memory impaired. The long-term safety and potential side effects are unknown. Side effects such as blurred vision, low or high blood pressure, headache, insomnia, diarrhea, and nausea have sometimes been reported.

Turmeric, best known as an Asian and Indian spice, has been revealed several therapeutic benefits as well. It has been attributed anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, while Turmeric as an ingredient may be found in products that promise to assist with rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, stomach ulcers, osteoarthritis, viral infections, Alzheimer’s disease, heart failure, migraine headaches, and mild cognitive impairment symptoms.

What’s Inside?

3) Is IQ150 Right for You?

As stated above, this formula is advertised as a high-quality mixture of all-natural ingredients, balanced with the latest science.

The formula contains several key ingredients. Phosphatidyl Serine is one of them. This ingredient was added to ensure the integrity of the membranes of the cells of the brain. It is important to remember that human brain is 80% fat inside the cells and these cells require ongoing support of the right kind of optimal function.

Another important ingredient is the Green Tea extract. Recent studies have shown that green tea can stimulate the production of several immune substances and as the brain is part of the neuroendocrine immune system it also helps in that way, it also offers heightened awareness through the xanthines that it contains.

According to the manufacturer, this product is perfectly safe to use with no reported side effects. However, while they claim the formula to be perfectly safe, some ingredients have been associated with several unwanted side effects. For instance, Ginkgo Biloba is well known for its blood thinning properties. Therefore, everyone with blood thinning problems or under treatment with anticoagulants should avoid using any Ginkgo Biloba-based supplement.

8) Our Verdict on IQ150

Ginkgo Biloba, Green Tea, Turmeric, Citicoline, and Bacopa Monnieri are constituents of the IQ150, ingredients which have been scientifically studied and which can frequently be found in brain enhancing supplements. Memory and concentration are particularly targeted by such supplements and like most of them IQ150 is not researched as a mixture of elements. The fact that there are few consumer testimonials is impeding us to draw a clear conclusion regarding the formula’s effectiveness. Instead, we advise you to turn to a healthcare provider for advice and only after consulting one to make a decision. The severity of your symptoms should also be taken into account.
