3) Neuro-Peak Ingredients

Neuro-Peak ingredients

Neuro-Peak includes the following active ingredients:

  • Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin)
  • Bacopa Monnieri (leaf extract)
  • Huperzine serrata
  • Ginkgo Biloba (leaf extract)
  • Rhodiola Rosea Extract (root extract)
  • DMAE Bitartrate

Inactive ingredients include: Vegetable cellulose capsule, stearic acid, silica, rice flour

Bacopa Monnieri is widely promoted as a treatment for memory disorders, anxiety, and thyroid health.

Bacopa may also help with anxiety. One double‐blind, placebo‐controlled cross‐over study[5], published in Phytotherapy Research in 2013, evaluated the effects of a Bacopa extract in healthy participants engaging in multiple tasks.

Rhodiola Rosea is a revered adaptogenic herb that supports the adrenal glands’ functioning and helps your body cope with stress to handle life’s challenges.

By reducing fatigue, Rhodiola Rosea may support mood and reduce stress and anxiety.

DMAE (also known as dimethylethanolamine or dimethylaminoethanol) is hypothesized to help acetylcholine production (a chemical that helps nerve cells transmit signals).

Since acetylcholine has such a crucial role in numerous cognitive functions, such as memory and learning, supporters believe that taking DMAE in supplement form may support brain health by raising acetylcholine levels. [8]

Ginkgo Biloba is said to support memory and help the recovery process after a stroke.

Pros & Cons

4) Neuro-Peak: Pros and Cons

Neuro-Peak claimed benefits include:

  • It’s a cost-effective nootropic formula that’s purported to support brain health and function.
  • It contains Rhodiola Rosea extract, a popular stress reducer.
  • Has ingredients that can improve overall mood.
  • Not for those who prefer something stronger

5) Precautions of Neuro-Peak Use

Some users may experience drowsiness if they combine Rhodiola Rosea with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), benzodiazepines, or serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs).

Since Ginkgo Biloba may affect blood clotting, it shouldn’t be used by people taking medication or supplements that affect blood clotting (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory meds, Warfarin, Aspirin, garlic, or Vitamin E) or those with bleeding disorders. [18]

Bacopa Monnieri may interact with medications metabolized by the liver, medications for Alzheimer’s disease, cholinergic drugs, anticholinergic drugs, thyroid hormones, or acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. [19][20]

9) What Users Are Saying

"I've been taking this for a month and definitely notice a clear difference. It felt a little weird at first, and I got a little bit of brain fog and coffee-like withdrawals when I did not take it. After a couple of weeks, I adjusted to it pretty well. I've noticed that I have been more motivated, my thoughts have been cleared, I've been more creative, and more positive/social."

"I noticed a difference within a few days. I am 67 and still working and hope to for a few more years. I am working with much younger co-workers, so I need to keep up with them! I am finding I remember better and comprehend quicker than they do now! Thanks for this great product." [Read full review]

---K. Sloan

"I'm now on my second month of using Neuro-Peak. It does seem to help me stay more attentive and task-oriented at work, but it does not leave one feeling revved-up like other focus-increasing supplements have a tendency to do. Also hasn't caused my blood pressure to spike, which is much appreciated. " [Read full review]

Final Thoughts

10) Final Thoughts on Neuro-Peak

Neuro-Peak is a nootropic supplement with great potential, especially giving its affordable price and the reputable company behind it. While the overall quality of the formula is mediocre at best, the price justifies it.

When it was released, this supplement was perceived as an innovative and groundbreaking formula.

However, over the past few years, more and more nootropic supplements emerged, many with unique formulations that can easily challenge established products like Neuro-Peak.

If you want a starter nootropic that won’t break the bank, we think Neuro-Peak is good enough.

I’m using Neuro Peak now and I haven’t felt like this is years. The clarity and focus and energy that I have sustains me throughout the day without jitters or any evening crashes. I basically feel like my brain is working better. I feel more productive and ideas flow a lot better. I just feel sharper than I have in a long while and that is all I was looking for. Went to a MD to see if they could help with this deficit I’ve been experiencing for years and was prescribed an anti-depressant. However I am not depressed. On the contrary. I am very happy and feel good for the most part. It was just that my brain felt slower and foggy and I couldn’t figure out how to reset myself. Don’t let these types of reviews scare you because the fact is that many of the ingredients in Neuro Peak have been reviewed by NCBI and you can look it up yourself. This brand is just using ancient traditional Chinese herbs in special formulas that have also been scientifically tested.

I tried it and liked it. I take two capsuls in the morning. And I feel like it is helping me focus and I was having problems with words coming to mind but I couldn’t get them out of my mouth right. And I’m not nervous talking when I take these. I have only taken Tru-Clarity which I also liked but by bed time I felt so tired like I could fall asleep standing up. . I don’t with Neuro-Peak.
