Below we take an in-depth look at Brainergy-X to see whether it can provide ‘advanced cognitive support’, as claimed by the manufacturers.
Brainergy-X is available exclusively from amazon. This supplement is described briefly as a nootropic and cognitive enhancer, but the product description primarily states that it boosts energy levels. There are numerous ingredients used in Brainergy-X that are thought to be effective at boosting various aspects of mental function, including improved memory and mood, and improved cognition.
The use of 100 mg of caffeine per capsules is the biggest potential cause of side effects, especially if the consumer is taking the highest recommended daily dose of four capsules per day. Caffeine side effects include jitteriness and insomnia; consumers should avoid other sources of caffeine whilst taking this supplement. Other side effects can also be caused by the ingredients used in Brainergy-X, which we go into more detail about in the Side Effects section below.
A bottle of Brainergy-X costs $23.56 plus delivery charges from amazon. Each bottle contains 120 capsules, which will last anywhere between 30 and 60 days depending upon the daily dosage used. This makes the product relatively affordable compared to many other nootropic supplements.
We have a mixed opinion of Brainergy-X. Whilst the product is very affordable compared to many other nootropic supplements, we have some concerns about the over-reliance upon caffeine to boost energy levels. The high dose of caffeine (400 mg per day if taking the maximum daily dose) can cause side effects including insomnia, and whilst it does boost energy levels, it is not a cognitive aid.
The product does contain some ingredients such as BacopaMonnieri and Alpha GPC that have clinical support to suggest that they do work as cognitive aids, but there are some other ingredients with far less clinical support.
The manufacturers claim to offer a money back guarantee, but there are complaints from customers about being unable to get a return.
Overall, we do not recommend Brainergy-X to our readers.
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.

Brainergy-X is a cognitive enhancer and energy boosting supplement that appears to be available exclusively from amazon. The product description for Brainergy-X is vague; the bottle states that the product offers advanced cognitive support. The product description states: ‘Brainergy-X provides even energy through a combination of caffeine and l-theanine to keep you energized, but not jittery.’
Brainergy-X is manufactured by Evo-X Health Products, who are based in Denver, CO in the USA. The company can be contacted using the information found on their official website.
Directions for use are as follows: “Brainergy-X is potent, start with one capsule to check your sensitivity. On an ongoing basis, take 1-2 capsules in the morning and 1-2 capsules after lunch. Drink 8oz of water with each dose. Do not take more than 4 capsules in a 24 hour period.”
The manufacturers do not make many claims about the benefits of Brainergy-X. They state that ‘Brainergy-X provides even energy through a combination of caffeine and l-theanine to keep you energized, but not jittery.’
The bottle also states that the product offers ‘advanced cognitive support’.
Brainergy-X does appear to increase energy levels thanks to its caffeine content. It is possible that theanine will reduce the side effects of caffeine, but the clinical support for this is lacking.
BacopaMonnieri needs to be taken daily for an effect to build up over time, but the other ingredients should cause a general improvement in energy levels and mental clarity shortly after taking the supplement.
BacopaMonnieri reduces anxiety and improves memory, while Rhodiolarosea reduces fatigue, seemingly allowing previously tired consumers to have improved cognitive performance. A-GPC appears to improve cognition.
Overall, the ingredients used in Brainergy-X could aid cognitive function in theory. However, as we do not know the individual ingredient quantities used, it is difficult to know just how effective the product actually is. Customer reviews reveal that this product works for many people, but there are some that feel no benefits, or who develop side effects.
The ingredients used in Brainergy-X are listed below. The individual ingredient quantities are not listed as the product contains a proprietary formula. The vitamin doses listed are per serving of two capsules. Each serving of two capsules also contains 1405 mg of the proprietary formula. The amazon sales page also states that each capsule contains 100 mg of caffeine per capsule, or 200 mg per serving of two capsules.
Vitamin B1 5 mg (333% RDA)
Vitamin B2 2.5 mg (147% RDA)
Vitamin B3 20 mg (100% RDA)
Vitamin B6 5 mg (250% RDA)
Vitamin B12 130 mcg (2167% RDA)
Synergistic Cognitive Compound 1405 mg
There are some ingredients found in Brainergy-X that can cause a range of side effects. As the individual ingredient quantities are not provided, it is difficult to establish the likelihood of any individual side effects occurring.
Caffeine can cause side effects such as headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia. Each serving of two capsules contains 200 mg, which is roughly the same as drinking two large cups of coffee quickly.
Theanine causes a state of relaxation without drowsiness, and may help to counteract some of the potential side effects of caffeine, such as jitteriness. Consumers should still ensure that they do not take this supplement or any other source of caffeine within 5 hours of bedtime, as caffeine can interfere with sleep cycles.
A-GPC can cause side effects in some people including heartburn, headache, insomnia, dizziness, skin rash, and confusion.
Studies have shown that Bacopa leaf causes upset stomachs in participants much more than placebos. This has led to the recommendation that this ingredient be taken with a meal, rather than on an empty stomach, as this will minimise the chances of getting an upset stomach. It may also may cause nausea, cramping, bloating, and diarrhoea.
Rhodiolarosea can cause increases in blood pressure, and could increase the appetite. It acts as a mild stimulant and so could cause insomnia if taken late in the day, and could cause restlessness and irritability. Dizziness and dry mouth are two other potential side effects of RhodiolaRosea.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for those under the age of 18. If you are not sure about the suitability of this product, or if you are taking any medications, whether prescription or over-the-counter, consult your doctor before purchase. Do not exceed recommended dose. This supplement contains caffeine. To avoid sleeplessness, do not take within six hours of bedtime.
There are many customer reviews for Brainergy-X on amazon, where the product is sold. The majority of reviews are four or five star rated, but there are some negative reviews, where consumers report developing side effects or noticing no benefits.
This will help your memory when your wife brings up things from a long time ago you normally can’t remember that they pull out of their war tongue vault — and you will be able to use your memory and trample those false facts like a boss.
Usually this kind of stuff never works for me. I have tried many supplements and nootropics. From liftmode I’ve used: Noopept, Phenibut, L-Theanine Pure, which didn’t do much for me, yet Phenylpiracetam has worked quite while. I also have several other supplements in capsules (not raw form) like this, but they do not have the same effect.
For some reason, this works very well for me. As a 30 year old aging man, my memory and attention is slowly slipping away as a software developer. It becomes hard to recall conversations too. But this supplement so far has been starting to kick in (no shakes or any side effects) and I can remember things, even dreams a lot better. I don’t have super intense focus but about a 20% increase. My memory is about a 150% increase!
When I found ‘Brainergy’ supplements online, I was excited and decided to give it a try. I have ADHD, so I have very poor focus and concentration, especially at work. My doctor once prescribed me a medication-Adderall-that made me jittery, so the thought of a natural supplement was appealing to me.
The first time I tried Brainergy, I only took 1 capsule (the directions call for two capsules every 6 hours). I didn’t feel any different almost 3 hours later. So, 6 hours later, now at work, I took 2 capsules with my lunch because I know B vitamins work best when taken with food.
5 hours later, I realized my workday was almost over, I had gotten all my work done and I wasn’t ‘lagging’ like usual. I was sharp, focused and felt good. There was no crash like I used to get from my prescription or from energy drinks. I was even less hungry than usual!
I have ADHD and have taken Adderall for years. The side effects from the Adderall are horrible and have increased with time. When I heard about this kind of supplement I immediately checked Amazon and ordered this one. The positive reviews were very positive and the price was decent. I was still skeptical but received them and waited a few days for the Adderall to leave my system before taking them. I took 2 yesterday morning and 2 more about 8 hrs later. These pills had a very positive effect the first day. I’m really stunned at how well they are working. This is only the second day but, so far, the effect is much better than Adderall. I will update this review in a week.
I bought this due to the abundant number of excellent reviews. My expectations were not high, but I was looking for something that will heighten my ability to focus and be motivated. I took 1/2 of one pill and within 1 minute my arms started feeling really tingly and light. I felt very weird and a light headache started 15 minutes after taking it (even though I was drinking water nonstop). Mind you, I had a full breakfast prior to taking it. I did not have motivation to work nor did I have increased energy. Basically, all I felt was jittery with a headache. Definitely returning this product.
I have tried multiple products related to increased focus and concentration. I tried BrainergyX based on the high number of positive reviews and the guarantee of satisfaction. Unfortunately, after trying Brainergy over the past two months, I have not seen a noticeable increase in my concentration or focus.
This product made my husband jittery, nervous, unbalanced, and overall unwell. He hated it, and he is not a complainer at all. He started taking this on a long weekend, and was literally in his room all weekend! Of course the return policy stinks, so it is going in the trash where it belongs!
The manufacturers do appear to offer a 30 day money back guarantee.
However, one reviewer has complained about the returns policy, stating that it ‘stinks’, and stating that she was unable to get a refund.
Brainergy-X is available from amazon, with a single bottle of 120 capsules costing $23.56 plus delivery charges. Anyone who has Prime Membership can get free two-day delivery.
The official manufacturer’s website has a buy now button, but it just leads back to the amazon sales page.
