Biotrust is a well-known vitamins and supplements company, which claims to provide honest nutrition for your ultimate body. The company was founded in 2012 by fitness trainers Josh Benzoni and Joel Marion and today is today one of the USA’s fastest growing nutritional companies.
Biotrust Brainbright is a nootropic supplement that claims to help you avoid brain drain – a term the company has invented. Like all Biotrust adverts, it combines blinding you with science with making things up and as a result it is hard to understand just what this supplement is supposed to do. Many customers seem equally confused. However Brainbright contains some good ingredients that may make you feel more mentally alert. If you are looking for a nootropic it might be worth a try and if you don’t like it, you can always claim your money back.
You may experience unpleasant although relatively minor side effects such as stomach upset, headaches, dizziness, constipation, pounding heartbeat, allergic skin reactions, fishy body odour or diarrhoea.
Biotrust Brainbright is quite expensive. If you buy from the Biotrust website, it costs $49.00 for one bottle of 60 capsules (30 servings).
You can make savings on larger orders:
3 x bottles of Biotrust Brainbright costs $132.00
6 x bottles of Biotrust Brainbright costs $234.00
Biotrust usually sells weight loss supplements so all purchases come with 2 x free eBooks; The 3-Week Diet and 53 Fat Burning Smoothies.
We quite like Biotrust Brainbright. It comes with a full ingredients list and most components are in strong enough quantities to actually do something. If even some of the clinical evidence is to be believed, we can see that this supplement may perk up your mental energy levels as described.
That said, the customer feedback is not overwhelming and as ever we are left profoundly confused and irritated by the Biotrust hyperactive advertising style. We are never sure what Biotrust supplements are really supposed to do, and this one is no exception. The best thing we can say about this point is at least we did not have to endure one of their long and boring animations which are a feature of most Biotrust products.
We have certainly seen a lot worse nootropic supplements on the market. It might be worth a try and if you do buy from the official Biotrust website and it does not work, you have a whole year to claim a refund.
Containing ingredients that have been clinically tested and boasting a 30-day money-back guarantee, OmniMind is quickly rising to the top of the nootropic world.

Biotrust Brainbright is a nootropic supplement that claims to improve flagging brain power and liven up your mental performance. It looks pretty good at first glance. The supplement contains a range of vitamins and minerals including B12 and folic acid plus two proprietary plant extract blends. However the principal ingredients are amino acid L-tyrosine and L-carnitine with added L-theanine.
Amino acids are often explained as being the building blocks of protein and it is a good description. Over 20% of the body is composed of amino acids – many of which are made by the body and they play a key role in the formation and function of our cells, muscle and tissue. Amino acids are also important for brain health.
Simply take one (1) tablet, two (2) times daily, preferably without food. For enhanced focus and concentration, take two (2) tablets as needed. Do not exceed six (6) tablets per day.
As well as the vitamin and amino acids, Biotrust Brainbright contains two proprietary blends based on plant extracts. These are Gingko Clean which contains extracts from the Gingko Biloba plant and Rhodiola Max based on the root of a plant called Rhodiola Rosea. Both these natural ingredients may have effects on mood and mental performance. We will look further into the ingredients later in the review.
Biotrust is a well-known nutritional supplements company. Based in Austin, Texas, it manufactures and markets supplements that are mainly to do with weight loss and muscle building. We have covered numerous weight loss supplements including Leptiburn and IC5. We also covered BioTrust in an investigation:
Although Biotrust has an extensive product range, Biotrust Brainbright is the company’s only nootropic supplement.
Biotrust is well known for providing lengthy and largely incomprehensible explanations about their products and the advertising for Brainbright is no exception.
First up, Joel, the co-founder of the company explains why you may need a nootropic supplement.
… Because of today’s fast paced and crazy, busy world, along with your natural ageing process, it’s very likely that your BRAIN is running a lot like an old, run-down computer from the 1980s.
… Your mental speed may be slow, your memory may be difficult to access, and chances are, your brain batteries are so drained and “corroded” that you constantly feel tired and mentally sluggish – like an old computer or cell phone that can’t keep a charge.
This all sounds awful but there is no evidence anywhere that says that it is likely that your brain is running like an old 1980s computer or functioning like an old cell phone. Without any real explanation or facts to explain what is really happening with your brain, Joel rushes on headlong to his next point,
You may be experiencing something we call ‘Brain Drain,’ caused by lack of sleep, too much stress and a deficiency of key neuro-nutrients in the food you eat. But fortunately, there are several simple strategies that you can easily put in place to light up your drained brain, and that’s why I’m here today: to give you total peace of mind and to ease the worry and frustrations you have surrounding the health and performance of your brain by sharing with you those simple yet extremely effective and powerful tips…
We will cut to the chase here: the so-called “effective and powerful tips” are simply to buy this supplement.
Biotrust Brainbright might help you feel more alert and improve your mental performance. Many of the ingredients come with strong evidence that they can improve mental functioning and brain health.
For example, L-Carnitine is proven to help keep you awake after a sleepless night if you only take 150 mg and with the Carnitine content here at 500 mg we can see that this ingredient alone is effective.
In addition the other ingredients look very promising. Gingko Biloba is known to increase blood flow into the brain which may increase cognitive speed. Rhodiola Rosea may be of general mental and physical benefit because it is well known as an adaptogen – a substance that generally boosts your health and well-being. Theanine is proven to cause you to relax yet stay mentally alert.
Nootropic supplements are in the early stages of testing but we can see Biotrust Brainbright helping your mental performance.
However it may be hard to evaluate the real effects. This exact formula has never been tested and as with the cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz, belief is important. If you take a pill to make you smarter, you will probably feel smarter just because you believe in it.
Serving size is equal to 2 capsules. Quantities here refer to serving size and are not per capsule.
Biotrust Brainbright may cause side effects and although it should be safe for many people it can cause side effects including:
It can also give a fishy smell to natural body odours.
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Do not take if you are on prescription medication because it may cause potentially dangerous interactions. If you suffer from an underlying medical condition speak to your doctor first to check whether this supplement is suitable.
There are customer reviews for Biotrust Brainbright but none of the ones that we could find were very positive.
Nothing spectacular but may have helped.
I’m not sure if these tablets really worked but I took 2 tabs in the morning before my job interview and I did really well and I did not stammer.
I can’t tell if this helps. But this thing gives me a headache.
I bought this from the Biotrust website to send for my mother she has Alzheimer, result that after 3 days she started to have terrible hallucinations.
Biotrust did respond to this customer’s complaint and gave him a full refund. As they pointed out, the product information marked on the bottle does warn you against taking the supplement in combination with other drugs and should not be taken if there is an underlying medical condition.
Biotrust provides great customer service and there is an excellent guarantee on all products. Just contact Biotrust if you are dissatisfied and they will refund even empty bottles for up to one year after purchase.
You can buy Biotrust Brainbright direct from the Biotrust website. All purchases come with a free copy of the 3-Week Diet and a recipe book of 52 Fat Burning Smoothies.
Alternatively you can buy Biotrust Brainbright via Amazon.
