Brain Formula is advertised as a supplement specially created to treat the symptoms of stress, anxiety and to provide focus and mental alertness by boosting brain function. Life Plus International manufactures this supplement and the same company behind Real NRG energy booster.

The formulation behind this supplement is based on the lucid sound premise that dietary and environmental factors play a fundamental role in maintaining and supporting healthy brain function. It is well known that the decrease in mental function that’s commonly associated with aging can be offset by keeping the mind “in good shape” through various brain exercises and proper nutrition.

The manufacturer claims Brain Formula can provide that “good nutrition” to the brain to maintain the brain “younger” for a long time.

1) Is Brain Formula Right for You?

Brain Formula is a combination of amino acids, vitamins, nutrients–touted as benefiting the function and synthesis of neurotransmitters–and herbs that according to the manufacturer were added to boost healthy brain function and intracellular communication.

We have to take into consideration how many ingredients are contained in this formula, so the simplest way to talk about them is by using the following categories of elements: specific brain-supporting nutrients (N-Acetyl-Carnitine, L-Carnitine, Dimethylaminoethanol, L-taurine, Phosphatidyl Serine) antioxidants (tocopherols, B-vitamins, vitamin K, selenium, N-acetyl cysteine, alpha lipoic acid, bioflavonoids) and herbal concentrates often associated with mental acuity (Ginkgo biloba, Huperzia serrata, Gotu Kola and Siberian ginseng).

According to the official website, “neuroscience research indicates that the nutrients above and plant-derived compounds are capable of helping neurons maintain healthy cellular energy production by promoting healthy mitochondrial function, and promoting healthy blood circulation…” Indeed, the official website does cite some clinical trials and studies to support these statements.

Furthermore, the manufacturer claims that a “diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and high-quality protein and essential fats, pure water, regular exercise, and stress management techniques, along with these outstanding supplements [Brain Formula], can significantly enhance our ability to maintain the priceless resource of an active and agile mind throughout our lifetime.” Once again, these claims are backed up by some researches conducted by famous neuroscientists, therapists, and nutrition specialists.

Cost

2) How Much Does Brain Formula Cost?

A bottle of Brain Formula contains 180 capsules, which should be enough for two months of treatment at a recommended dosage of three capsules per day. The supplement can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website (an account is required) or from some online and offline retailers.

Final Thoughts

3) Final Thoughts on Brain Formula

Despite a strong scientific grounding and interesting claims, this product may be too vaguely beneficial for consumers who are looking for a noticeable impact on their mental state after committing to a supplementation program.

Furthermore, some consumers may be reticent in taking a supplementation that contains phenylalanine and other potential unwanted side effects, especially since avoidance of such side effects is a primary reason for which people are seeking natural supplements over prescription drugs.
