Synapsyl Review – 1.6/5
‘Scientists are calling this smart pill Viagra for the brain’. Do you really believe that? It sounds rather suspect to us, and of course, there’s no direct quote or evidence to prove this, it’s just a catchy tagline that Synapsyl have made million$$ off the back of.
Their website may look flashy, but it’s all smoke and mirrors to distract you from the serious shortcomings of this so-called smart pill.
One award Synapsyl can bank is “most hated brain supplement on the internet”. Just take a glance at some of the beatings this awful company have attracted…
Absolutely shocking! And yet these are the people whose marketing nonsense claims Professor Stephen Hawking uses Synapsyl! It would almost be hilarious if these adverts weren’t fooling thousands of people into the Synapsyl scam. So, who exactly is responsible?…
Synapsyl is manufactured by Anthea Ltd – an Indian based company, and they make it very difficult to find out anything about them and where they’re based -as contact numbers are given for three different countries. It’s hard to trust a company that goes to great lengths to remain hidden – until you start to see the degree to which they have ripped people off.
We’ll come back to that later, first let’s see whether the company’s formula is as based as their business ethics and morals.

According to Synapsyl’s website, taking two capsules a day will provide better concentration, memory, creative thinking and an overall mental edge. All that is promised in ‘just minutes’, which seems rather unrealistic to us. Especially with no clinical trials or studies to prove these effects, we’re not convinced.
But, the website is tame in respect to claims as the internet god that is Google surely has these fraudsters on their hitlist. The claims the site made 6 months ago were verging on the ridiculous – even claiming the film Limitless was based on this crappy formulation.
The only thing that appears Limitless about Synapsyl is the number of times they’ll charge your card before you’re reduced to cancelling it with your bank!
Looking at the ingredients, you’ll likely only experience some effects from the Phosphatidylserine and the Vinpocetine – every other ingredient in Synapsyl is far too low dosed to have any effect.
Synapsyl’s formula is all-natural. Here’s what it’s made up of. One capsule contains:
St. John’s Wort 250mg – A herbal extract used to treat depression, anxiety and insomnia. BEWARE – Do not take this if on an SSRI or anti-depressant.
Glutamine 150mg – An amino acid which improves the body’s response to stress.
Phosphatidylserine Complex 125mg – Improves overall cognitive performance
Bacopin 100mg – An antioxidant which improves mood by regulating serotonin production and increases blood flow to the brain.
Gingko Biloba 50mg – Improves memory while reducing anxiety. Beware – Do not use if suffering from low blood pressure.
Dimethylaminoethanol Bitartrate 50mg – Increases acetylcholine.
Acetyl L-Carnitine 50mg – A brain-boosting amino acid.
Vinpocetine 2mg – Increases blood flow to the brain.
Synapsyl is not suitable for vegetarians as it contains gelatin. Other ingredients include magnesium dioxide and silicon dioxide.
Recommended dosage for Synapsyl is 2 capsules per day.
Synapsyl Side Effects
There are risks associated with two of Synapsyl’s main ingredients. The first is St. John’s Wort, which can cause photo-sensitivity and is unsuitable for women who are pregnant. The second is Gingko Biloba, which has recently been claimed can cause seizures in those with epilepsy.
A closer look at the bottle label makes for scary reading.
Reviews for Synapsyl on Amazon are entirely negative. Here are just a few examples:
“Can’t tell a difference.”
“Very expensive for the noticeable beneficial effect. I take 2 per day as directed & am on my 2d bottle.
If you look at the ingredients, you could probably this stuff in bulk and make your own “Synapsyl” caps for a LOT less money”
“No results. A loss of money.”
The results from supplement review sites weren’t much better as you can see from the opening images of some of the reviews showing on Google.
The biggest issue seems to be from people stating their credit card was repeatedly charged for bottles they never ordered.
One bottle of 60 Synapsyl capsules costs as much as formulas packing 3 times the amount of nootropics.
We can’t see any reason therefore why anyone would want to purchase this cash – never mind enter their credit card details into the “Synapsyl Fraud machine” that is their website. Synapsyl.com gladly accepts major credit cards but don’t expect to be able to cancel those unexpected payments that so many report start popping up every few days!
If you’re still interested, here’s the current pricing:
- 1 Bottle: $49.95 plus $9.96 S&H
- 3 Bottles: $119.91 plus free shipping
- 5 Bottles: $149.85 plus free shipping
Synapsyl is one to be avoided. It’s just another scam nootropic looking to jump on the bandwagon that the Limitless movie created without providing any real benefits.
Don’t be fooled by the flashy marketing, it’s not the real deal. Some customers even said that they’d never received their orders at all, so you could be just throwing your money away. To find a real nootropic, see some of the other reviews on our site.
