1) What is Superior Brain?
The product consists in several herbal extracts such as Ginkgo Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Bacopa Monnieri, and Vinpocetine, all traditionally used as remedies for various brain related conditions. For example Ginkgo Biloba and Bacopa Monnieri are commonly described as very effective memory enhancers. Ginkgo Biloba owes its reputation to its excellent antioxidant and blood thinning properties which allow the maintenance of optimal cognitive abilities (such as memory, thinking, and recall ability), and ensure proper oxygenation of the brain and organs. Bacopa Monnieri maximizes neuron communication which also recalls for better memory and thinking. Both Bacopa and St John’s Wort are considered potent antidepressants and are promoted as natural ways to improve mood and maintain mental balance. Vinpocetine is also considered a miracle herb for the brain. It has widely been studied for its effects on this organ and results showed that the plant can improve oxygen flow to the oxygen deprived brain cells (thus preventing stroke), increases blood flow to the brain, and promotes the synthesis of neurotransmitters like Acetylcholine (important for memory, attention, and alertness), Serotonin (the feel good neurotransmitter), and Dopamine.
2) What’s Inside Superior Brain?
Superior Brain contains the following ingredients: Superior Brain contains the following ingredients: Ginkgoxine (Ginkgo Biloba 24%), Proprietary formula: St John’s Wort (as 3% extract), Glutamine (as L-Glutamine Hydrochloride), Phosphatidylserine Complex, Bacopa Monnieri (20% bacosides), Dimethylaminoethanol Bitartrate, Acetyl-L Carnitine, Vinpocetine, gelatin, Magnesium Stearate, and Di-Calcium Phosphate.
3) Does Superior Brain Work?
The formula’s first listed ingredient is a patented form of Ginkgo Biloba which is named Ginkgoxine. Unfortunately the site of the company which trademarked this compound (Avexyl Pharma) is not currently functional. More so, we couldn’t find relevant information about this patented substance, so we cannot say how it is different than common Ginkgo Biloba. What we actually know is that Ginkgo is one of the oldest living tree species on earth and that it has been used medicinally for thousands of years. The plant extract is believed to posses extraordinary antioxidant benefits which make it so important for us humans. Antioxidants are substances known to protect against the action of free radicals. Free radicals are harmful compounds that cause damage to the organs through a process called oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is believed to be the cause of the early aging of organs, including of the brain. This can lead to poor memory, memory lapses, or brain fogginess. Ginkgo Biloba is also believed to improve blood circulation to the brain and promote emotional well-being.
However there have been side-effects associated with the use of this herb such as: nausea, dizziness, headaches, or digestive problems. The risk of bleeding is also increased when using Ginkgo Biloba based products.
Other ingredients included in this supplement play various different roles. St John’s Wort for example is a well–known natural antidepressant. Glutamine, a very abundant amino-acid in the body is a popular energy boosting substance and is also precursor to the neurotransmitter GABA which is closely related to some of the brain’s capacities like: memory, thinking and mood.
All in all, Superior Brain features only ingredients that have been studied for their potential benefits on the brain and cognition and although it is not an innovative product it can be as effective as any other brain supplement out there.

7) How to Take Superior Brain
The product also features a popular phospholipid called Phosphatidylserine, commonly recommended for improving memory, treating mood problems or ADHD, and enhancing energy levels. Glutamine is another active substance in Superior Brain. Naturally occurring in the human body, Glutamine is most used as an ingredient of sports nutrition supplements where it is used for its energy enhancing qualities. Glutamine is also a precursor of GABA, an important neurotransmitter required for optimal cognitive performance.
8) Our Bottom Line
Superior Brain is a common brain supplement. It features several herbal extracts, one amino-acid, the popular Phosphatidylserine and DMAE, another common ingredient marketed as a miracle solution to your memory problems, Glutamine. We have seen similar ingredient list in at least a dozen brain supplements out there, but the reality is that this formula (like many others) is not proven to bring the benefits marketed by its manufacturer. And in the absence of scientific evidence we can only turn to consumer testimonials that can validate Superior Brain’s potency. Looking at these testimonials we noticed most users have experienced some of the benefits marketed for this formula and the general opinion is a positive one.
However, there are also numerous users who admit to have received discounts in return of their “honest review”. From our point of view this can influence the user towards giving a more favorable review, so we’re not sure if their reviews are as objective as should be.
