Doxiderol Review – 2.8/5
What is Doxiderol?
Doxiderol is a nootropic supplement that promises to give you a sharper mind. It’s primarily aimed at students who are looking for something to help them focus and stay alert during their studies and as a result features a heavy dose of caffeine. Doxiderol’s marketing message positions it as a ‘study pill’ and alternative to Adderall. Is it really all it’s cracked up to be, or did the caffeine leave us crashing? We went on a mission to find out.
Who Makes Doxiderol?
Doxiderol is produced by Mentis Laboratories, an American company based in New York. We had trouble finding any information on Mentis, and it appears that they don’t produce any other supplements. It’s hard to trust companies like this one, with no background or evidence to show its reliability.
However, that doesn’t mean that Doxiderol isn’t a good product. Going for them is the fact that Doxiderol is not a new supplement – having been around for some 5+ years now.
The effects of Doxiderol include better focus, alertness, memory and attention span as well as more energy. It claims to do that by including ingredients which manage neurotransmitter levels to improve communication within the brain, increase blood flow to the brain to enhance it’s functionality, and reduce stress.
Doxiderol’s website doesn’t give a definitive ingredients list with dosages. Instead, it just gives descriptions of some of the substances it contains. This includes the following:
An amino acid which increases energy production and a precursor to acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter responsible for learning and memory amongst other brain functions.
Included for a stimulant effect to increase energy and alertness.
A herb most commonly used in Ayurveda which improves memory and cognitive function.
A choline source with many nootropic benefits. It’s used in treatments for ADD and Alzheimer’s disease for its ability to improve memory and cognition.
An amino acid which increases the brain’s levels of dopamine, GABA and seratonin, and is commonly found in green tea.
Increases circulation to the brain to allow the other ingredients to be absorbed more quickly and also improves memory.
The formula also includes vitamin B12, pantothenic acid and magnesium stearate. Doxiderol uses a gelatin capsule and is therefore not suitable for vegetarians. It’s manufactured in the USA in an FDA-approved, GMP-certified facility which is a positive due to the strict quality controls required to be met.
The formula looks good and certainly includes ingredients which have the potential to be very effective. Unfortunately, we can’t say for sure without knowing the exact dosages, and since Doxiderol uses a proprietary blend (which is 929mg in total), there’s no way to know without trying it for yourself.
Understandably, many wouldn’t be willing to put their money down on a product if they didn’t know that it really works. However, there are also plenty of people out there looking for a quick fix and willing to pay just about anything for it, and Doxiderol will certainly appeal to those people.
The recommended Dosage
Recommended dosage is 2 capsules per day, taken with food around 30 minutes before any ‘mental activity’, such as a study session or task providing mental stress and challenges.
Supplement Critique tried Doxiderol out and described the experience as ‘nothing short of stellar’, while Brain Enhancement Advisor simply said it was ‘relatively satisfactory’. Nootropic Geek said it works, although it’s not the replacement for Adderall that it’s advertised as being.
We looked for some unbiased customer reviews for a better insight and weren’t sure what to make of our findings. Doxiderol reviews on Amazon are very positive, but some of them almost sound as though the could be advertisements, so we’re not sure if they’re genuine or not.
Some reviewers said it worked wonders and helped them to improve their grades, enjoy school more and increased focus and concentration. Others said it didn’t work at all.
Doxiderol is only available online and costs $34.95 per bottle. Each one contains 30 capsules, so you’ll need two of them for a month’s supply. If you’re looking to take Doxiderol long term, you can sign up for a monthly subscription at a discounted rate.
The website mentions a free sample, which is limited to one per household. However, it’s unclear how to claim one and whether you will be charged shortly after hanind over your credit card details which can often be the case.
US shipping takes 3-4 days and there is a money-back guarantee, which is valid for 90 days after purchase.
Doxiderol Summary – Is it worth the investment?
Doxiderol uses a lot of flashy marketing and the website does appear convincing at first glance. However, upon further inspection, things don’t look quite so good. It plays off the success of the nootropics industry in general as that of it’s own product, which is inaccurate and misleading.
The formula does appear promising, but the proprietary blend lets it down. The dosage also means that one bottle won’t even last a whole month, so it works out more expensive than you first think. This could be an effective product to people with high sensitivity to supplements – but to our minds the “boosts” experienced were pure caffeine related.
The L-theanine does counter the sting of the caffeine, providing a smoother energy, but with the exception of feeling more energised, there really was nothing to write home about.
There are much better offerings out there, and while Doxiderol may have been something special when it first launched some years ago, it’s price, and dated formula make this poor value in 2017 when compared to current favorite Nooshift.
A company that have lasted, but certainly won’t be leading the industry with Doxiderol.
