Azoth 2.0

What You Need To Know About Azoth 2.0

Azoth 2.0 is a nootropic supplement that is caffeine-free and designed to offer improvements in “energy, mood, focus, cognition, and speed”, leading to an overall increase in productivity. However, it does contain another stimulant ingredient, Hordenine, and so it is still not safe for anyone with high blood pressure and other heart related health issues.

Azoth 2.0 is manufactured by Azoth LLC, a small company that set up in 2016 and is run by Prady Tewarie, a bodybuilder.

What Are The Side Effects Of Azoth 2.0?

There are numerous ingredients in Azoth 2.0 that could potentially cause a range of side effects.

Large doses of ashwaganda can cause stomach upset, diarrhoea and vomiting. It can also change blood pressure levels.

Although Tyrosine is tolerated generally in very high doses, it can cause some side effects including nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.

Side effects of Phosphatidylserine can include insomnia and stomach upset, particularly at doses over 300 mg. It can be made from either plant or animal sources, and so may not be suitable for vegetarians.

Huperzine A can cause some side effects such as nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, sweating, blurred vision, slurred speech, restlessness, loss of appetite, contraction and twitching of muscle fibres, cramping, increased saliva and urine, inability to control urination, high blood pressure, and slowed heart rate.

Bioperine increases the bioavailability of other compounds, which increases the risk of side effects from other ingredients, as well as the risk of accidental overdose.

How Much Does Azoth 2.0 Cost?

Azoth 2.0 can be purchased from the official Azoth website, Seeking Azoth. Here there are several purchasing options. A single bottle containing 45 capsules (15 servings) costs $29.99.

Two bottles, containing a total of 90 capsules (30 servings) costs $39.99. Finally, three bottles, containing 135 capsules (45 servings) costs $54.99. Delivery charges may also apply.

Azoth 2.0 is also available on Amazon. Here a single bottle costs $34.95. Delivery charges may also apply.

Our Verdict On Azoth 2.0

The marketing for this product makes a big deal of the absence of caffeine in the formula. However, this product does contain Teacrine, which works in a similar way to caffeine, and Hordenine, which acts as a stimulant. This means that Azoth is not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine and other stimulants. The list of precautions and warnings on the side of the bottle is incredibly long, and should be read through thoroughly before purchase, as the side effects can be unpleasant and serious.

Whilst many of the nootropic ingredients have anecdotal support from consumers (individually), and they also have clinical support for treating Alzheimer’s and Dementia, there is little evidence from clinical studies to support their use to boost memory and cognition in healthy consumers. This is because nootropics are still an emerging market.

There is no money back guarantee for this product, and the manufacturers do not state what their returns policy is on their official website.

Each bottle will last for between 15 and 22 days of use. Whilst the price of a single bottle is not high, the cost per day is much higher, as many comparable products offer a 30 day supply in each bottle.

Overall, we do not recommend Azoth 2.0 to our readers.

Azoth 2.0 Review

Azoth 2.0 is a nootropic supplement that, according to its manufacturers, is “designed to increase motivation, confidence, memory, and focus without a crash.” The product was reformulated in 2017, and lots of the available customer reviews appear to be discussing the original formula. Azoth’s manufacturers use the product’s lack of caffeine as one of its main selling points, but neglect to mention that the product contains another stimulant called Hordenine, which is incredibly under-researched regarding both its safety profile and its potential cognitive benefits.

Does Azoth 2.0 Work?

There are numerous different ingredients in Azoth 2.0 that could provide a range of different benefits. Alpha-GPC is used as a prescription treatment of Alzheimer’s in Europe, and whilst it is hypothesised that it could benefit memory in healthy consumers, there is no support for this yet. Phosphatidylserine also has clinical support suggesting that its supplementation could benefit Alzheimer’s patients, but no clinical support for benefiting healthy consumers yet.

Hordenine is a stimulant ingredient; it is not a nootropic and is not commonly included in nootropic supplements. It seems likely that it can boost energy levels.

Ashwaganda may reduce cortisol levels, helping to combat stress. High cortisol levels are linked with sleeping poorly, increased fatigue, and even weight gain.

Tyrosine may help to reduce fatigue if you are sleep deprived, as does Sulbutiamine.

Although the manufacturers claim that this supplement could improve memory (amongst a long list of other benefits), we could not find any ingredients in this product that have been proven to improve memory in cognitively healthy consumers; there are some ingredients that have been linked with improved cognition and even improved memory in those with Alzheimer’s, but this might not extend to the rest of the population.

Overall, it is possible that Azoth 2.0 could help to reduce fatigue, boost energy levels, and help to somewhat reduce cortisol levels and perceptions of stress. The nootropic ingredients used have little clinical support for their use in healthy consumers, but they have anecdotal support online.

What Are The Ingredients of Azoth 2.0?

The ingredients found in Azoth 2.0 are detailed below. The individual ingredient quantities listed below are per serving of three capsules.

  • Ashwaganda extract 500 mg: It is thought that use of Ashwaganda root lowers cortisol levels in the brain and body. Cortisol is a hormone produced during moments of stress, and having high cortisol levels in the long term can have numerous negative health effects. Source
  • L-Tyrosine 500 mg: An amino acid that is a building block of protein, this ingredient is found naturally in many foods including meat and dairy products. In existing trials, L-Tyrosine appears to effectively improve cognition and memory during stressful periods. This is probably because it appears to reduce fatigue in sleep deprived people, thereby indirectly enhancing performance. Source
  • Phosphatidylserine 500 mg: Several studies with phosphatidylserine indicate improved cognitive abilities and behaviours, but the studies focused on Alzheimer’s patients; it is possible that these effects could also benefit consumers in general, but there is no real clinical support to support this. The FDA has stated that Phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of cognitive dysfunction and dementia in the elderly. Source
  • Sulbutiamine 400 mg: A synthetic molecule that consists of two thiamine molecules bound together chemically. It is thought that Sulbutiamine can treat fatigue, although evidence is still preliminary. Source
  • Alpha-GPC 300 mg: In Europe alpha-GPC is a prescription medication for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, but in the USA it is a prescription free dietary supplement. It appears to have some cognitive-boosting properties, helps to prevent cognitive decline, and may also enhance power output in athletes. Source
  • Teacrine 100 mg: TeaCrine is a branded form of Theacrine. It appears to work in a similar way to caffeine. Early research suggests that it may help to boost mental and physical performance (like caffeine), but a little more research is needed to confirm this effect. Source
  • Hordenine HCL 50 mg: Hordenine is an incredibly understudied stimulant. It is sometimes found in weight loss supplements, and is extracted from bitter orange, as well as some other plant extracts. As a stimulant, it will also likely boost energy levels. Source
  • Bioperine 10 mg: This patented Black pepper extract is used for increasing the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. In other words, it increases the amounts of nutrients that are absorbed into the body in the digestive tract. It may also increase the absorption of various drugs, which may lead to potential side effects. Source
  • Huperzine A 100 mcg: Huperzine-A is found in Huperzia serrata. Huperzine-A is thought to be a cognitive enhancer. Because of the relatively long half-life of this compound, its use should be cycled, with breaks in usage every few weeks. Source

Does Azoth 2.0 Have Any Side Effects?

There are numerous ingredients in Azoth 2.0 that could potentially cause a range of side effects.

Large doses of ashwaganda can cause stomach upset, diarrhoea, and vomiting. It can also change blood pressure levels.

Although Tyrosine is tolerated generally in very high doses, it can cause some side effects including nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.

Side effects of Phosphatidylserine can include insomnia and stomach upset, particularly at doses over 300 mg. It can be made from either plant or animal sources, and so may not be suitable for vegetarians.

Huperzine A can cause some side effects such as nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, sweating, blurred vision, slurred speech, restlessness, loss of appetite, contraction and twitching of muscle fibres, cramping, increased saliva and urine, inability to control urination, high blood pressure, and slowed heart rate.

Bioperine increases the bioavailability of other compounds, which increases the risk of side effects from other ingredients, as well as the risk of accidental overdose.

Hordenine is a stimulant found in bitter orange, and some other plants. Side effects associated with the use of Hordenine and other bitter orange extracts include increased heart rate and increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, fainting, muscle disorders, seizures, irregular heartbeat, loss of consciousness, strokes, heart attacks, and death in previously healthy patients. The Mayo Clinic has recommended avoiding use of bitter orange and its extracts, including hordenine because in their opinion, the risk of using the product is not worth the risk.

    Have to disagree with this. The formula is probably one of the most effective out there and one of the few non-prop blends on the market. Been using this for a month or two and even got my mom on it. 0 side-effects and loving it. Have you tried the formula?
