Brain Krave Review – 1/5
What is Brain Krave?
Brain Krave promises to be an alternative to Adderall, but there are lots of nootropic out there claiming to be the same thing, and we’re not sure if there’s any truth to that. The difference with Brain Krave is that is claims to work like Adderall, but to only contain natural ingredients. If true, this would mean that it provides a way around the negative side effects and addictiveness that people with ADD and ADHD often have to live with.
Brain Krave Effects
This is where it starts to get a little ridiculous. We’re used to seeing brain pills pop up on the market claiming to be the next big thing and promising all sorts of things, but Brain Krave takes unrealistic claims to the next level. For a start, it’s website says its ‘the world’s most effective and healthiest brain supplement’, which is a flat out lie. It also says that taking Brain Krave will make you feel as though you’ve had a ‘download if extra IQ’. Any nootropic that claims to make you smarter is one to be wary of. That’s not what nootropics do; they just enhance the way your brain performs. It also says that it can be used to not only replace Adderall, but to mitigate its negative effects, but provides absolutely no proof of this.
Brain Krave also promises the same effects most other nootropics do, including better focus, alertness and concentration; more mental energy; improved memory; elevated mood; reduced anxiety; and better physical and mental performance. It claims to deliver these by boosting neurotransmitter levels, improving nerve cell communication and increasing blood circulation to the brain.
Brain Krave Ingredients
Brain Krave contains lots of essential vitamins:
The rest of the formula is a 610mg ‘Nootropic Complex’, which consists of unknown amounts of the following ingredients:
Nootropic Complex 610mg
Green Tea Powder
B6 2.7mg |
Folic Acid 200mcg
Vitamin B12 50mcg
Vitamin B5 1mg
Brain Krave contains various herbal extracts, some of which have been used in Ayurveda and Chinese medicine for centuries. Bacopa has been proven particularly useful for older people because it has the ability to improve cognitive ability. It also enhances memory function. Rhodiola also improves cognition, but has little research to prove its effects. Huperzine-A, on the other hand, is well-known for its ability to combat cognitive decline and maintain acetylcholine levels, and is therefore used in lot of other natural nootropic stacks. Shizandrol-A is included to benefit mood, as it raises levels of dopamine. Vinpocetine is a chemical compound derived from a plant extract, and increases blood circulation to the brain.
The formula also contains amino acids, including L-Tyrosine, which improves the body’s response to stress and L-Carnitine, which improves memory.
The inclusion of green tea powder brings another stress-reducing factor and the all-important ingredient Phosphatidylserine, which we see in so many nootropic formulas, boosts memory.
Brain Krave includes various vitamins and thankfully, we can see the dosages of each one. We only wish we could say the same for the ‘nootropic complex’. These vitamins provide antioxidant effects to fight damage from free radicals, increase levels of neurotransmitters, and benefit overall brain health.
There is no information regarding Brain Krave’s manufacturing process or where that takes place, and no mention of GMP or FDA. This means that we can’t be sure of Brain Krave’s quality control.
Brain Krave Dosage
Recommended dosage is two capsules per day.
Brain Krave Reviews
Brain Krave has been reviewed by plenty of other brain pill review sites with mixed results. Brain Enhancement Advisor and Top Brain Pills spoke fondly of it, but Brain Reference showed some concern about their ingredients and marketing strategies. The main problem is that there aren’t any genuine customer reviews out there, which makes it very difficult for us to put any faith in the product. There are some video reviews on Youtube (like this one), but they’re clearly fake.
Buy Brain Krave
We’re not even sure that Brain Krave is still available for purchase. Various pages of the website are out of service, and that includes the shop page. It doesn’t appear that it’s sold through any other sites or vendors, either. This meant that our only means of finding the pricing details came from existing reviews, which said that it was retailed at $34.99 per bottle. The lack of information about the manufacturer also means that we’re left in the dark about any delivery costs or refund policy, which is not good at all.
Brain Krave Summary
Brain Krave could have been something good, but the people behind it, whoever they may be, we far more interested in shoddy marketing techniques than producing a quality product in an honest way. Whether we like it or not seems rather irrelevant since it seems to be no longer available for purchase, but even we had to opportunity to buy it, we wouldn’t.
