So, will BrainZyme improve your thinking performance?
Can BrainZyme live up to its claims of reducing mental tiredness and improving concentration? Are there are long-term health benefits from taking this supplement? The Nootropic Watchdog delves into the ingredients to find out if this nutritional supplement can deliver on its claim of being a natural brain booster with fast acting properties, and get the low down on whether it will protect your brain health over time.
BrainZyme is a natural nootropic manufactured in the UK by Better Nutritional Science, containing several energy stimulating ingredients.
Suitable for vegetarians, vegans, and people who have gluten and soy allergies, it claims to be an all-round solution to those who need to think clearer, perform better, concentrate longer, and be more motivated.
Marketed at students, professionals, athletes, and parents, it claims to be more effective than coffee and green tea, another lauded miracle ingredient for its health benefits.
They have a range of sister products which they claim are more advanced for those with higher energy requirements.
Whilst the manufacturers do not report any side effects and reviews do not mention much either, some of the ingredients can create unpleasant side effects. Upset stomach, headaches, and insomnia are some possible issues users may face by taking the supplement.
It is also possible that users may experience a short high energy period, but is followed by a quick crash afterwards.
The cost of BrainZyme is £9.95 for 30 capsules, with one dose being around 2-3 capsules. Value packs for 3, 5, and 10 are available. They offer free delivery on items shipped within the UK.
The Nootropic Watchdog are skeptical about the results of BrainZyme, and believe that any benefit in energy will be short lived and not much more than a strong cup of coffee would achieve. There may be some placebo effect as a result of taking this supplement, but it is worth a try for those with a pressing deadline or exam.
We do not believe that there will be much long-term brain health boosting benefit, due to the low quantities of active ingredients. Choline is a compelling ingredient, but medical studies are limited.
Matcha Green Tea also has some possible health benefits but needs further study to convince us. Currently, the evidence is inconclusive about the amounts needed to achieve its full potential. Overall, we do not recommend BrainZyme 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.

This supplement is positioning itself as both a long-term brain health booster and a fast-acting stimulant to help get you through those pressurized situations when you need to concentrate and think clearly.
However, as a nutritional supplement, there are low quantities of the active ingredients and it is therefore hard to imagine much benefit would be achieved through taking this. Vitamin B5 and B6, in particular, are rarely deficient so why they are in there at all is unknown to us.
Directions for use:
As a quick energy booster to get you through an exam or other immediate deadlines, BrainZyme may provide some stimulation, but we expect the energy slump afterwards is equally as dramatic.
The manufacturers of BrainZyme, Better Nutritional Science, claim that this product is an all-natural way to boost your brain health but, more importantly, enhance cognitive performance and energy fast.
Whether you are a student studying for exams, a professional with a heavy deadline, or competing in a sport requiring mental agility, they say they can help improve your focus, the length of time you can concentrate, and boost motivation to see you through.
They say is it more effective than coffee and contains less caffeine than two-thirds of a cup of filtered coffee. Promoted as a milder version of their other nootropic supplements, it is an introduction to brain-enhancing products which are stronger and contain more ingredients.
BrainZyme states it will get to work within one hour to give fast acting benefits, but also support your long-term brain health.
Whilst some of the ingredients are known to have a stimulating effect, we believe it may be no more than the equivalent of a strong cup of coffee. It may also provide a short-lived energy increase with a particularly bumpy energy crash afterwards. The dosage of some of the ingredients is low, and therefore likely to be ineffective and some others appear to be in there for no real reason.
Free from sugar, soy, GMO, salt, gluten, and gelatin.
The manufacturers of BrainZyme do not list any potential side effects, but a closer look at the ingredients shows that users may experience the following issues:
Food supplements must not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Take medical advice before consuming any food supplement, especially if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, under medical supervision or suffer from allergies. Always read the product directions before use. Discontinue use and consult a doctor if adverse reactions occur. Keep out of sight and reach of children. Do not exceed 6 capsules per day.
The reviews on Amazon are overwhelmingly positive, causing one reviewer to doubt their authenticity, especially as they state things that seem to be more marketing gimmicks than discernible health benefits.
However, of the reviews, some users reported a ‘clean energy’ which made them less ‘jittery’ than caffeine or other products. Many reviewers bought these as a study aid and comment that they felt they were able to concentrate better and longer as a result.
Others noticed no change in their energy or state, even when taking up to four capsules.
They say they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, but they have conditions for returning the product. It must be within 30 days of receipt of your shipment, returned in the original condition, unused or no more than 6 capsules used and in the original packaging. It will then be inspected before a decision about a refund will be made.
This does not imply a 100% satisfaction guarantee, given 6 capsules might only be one day’s worth of the supplement and not enough to make a judgment.
BrainZyme is available from their own website, as well as third-party retailers such as Amazon.
