Cebria

Rating
The demand for nootropics, also known as “smart drugs”, has increased rapidly in recent years with manufacturers claiming their products can enhance cognitive ability and dexterity. Cebria is specifically targeted at those with age-related memory loss with a patented formula of neuropeptides for the repair and formation of new neural connections.

Below we take an in-depth look at Cebria to see how effective it is as a brain-boosting supplement, and to see what other benefits it offers consumers.

What You Need To Know About Cebria

Cebria contains a mix of vitamins (B6/B12/Folic Acid) alongside a patented Neuro Pep blend that contains various amino acids which the manufacturer claims are linked to better mental function.

The official website states ‘A double-blind clinical trial shows that people suffering from age-related memory loss experience improvement with Cebria®’ but the actual study has not been released or cited at all.

The individual ingredient quantities are not listed either.

What Are The Side Effects Of Cebria?

Although Cebria contains well over the recommended daily allowance of vitamins B6, Folic acid and B12, which can produce adverse side effects if consumer excessively, it is unlikely that the recommended one capsule per day would result in any adverse side effects. Customers have however complained of withdrawal type symptoms such as headaches when they have stopped taking the supplement.

How Much Does Cebria Cost?

Cebria is relatively expensive when purchased directly from the manufacturer as well as from Amazon. It cannot readily be purchased elsewhere at this time.

Our Verdict On Cebria

Cebria does not appear to be as effective at boosting memory as the manufacturers claim. The individual ingredient quantities are not listed and so it is unclear whether any of the ingredients are used in effective doses.

Cebria is an expensive product that is currently only available at a very limited number of online stores. If purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website, the customer is automatically signed up to an auto-ship program that has proved complicated and unsuitable in many instances. Cebria’s “free-trial” also flags up warning signs as customers can potentially incur accidental or unforeseen charges.

Overall, we do not recommend Cebria to our readers.

Cebria Review

Cebria is marketed as a cognitive enhancer and memory booster.More specifically, Cebria claims to improve, restore and protect your memory with results seen in just 30 days and is targeted at those worried about age-related memory loss.This is achieved through Cebria’s “patented blend of neuropeptides that work to build new neuro-connections”. The manufacturers of Cebria state that they have support from clinical trials to show that their supplement does work but fail to provide any of this actual evidence available to prove their claims.

Cebria Facts

  • Manufactured by Cebria LLC
  • 30 capsules per bottle
  • Autoship program

Cebria is manufactured by Cebria, LLC located in Colorado, USA, however its website claims the neuropeptides in Cebria are developed in Unterach, Austria.

How to Take Cebria

Directions for use are as follows: Take one Cebria capsule every morning with a glass of water. Cebria claims results should be seen in 30 days.

Their contact details are available on their website. The Cebria box also displays the name “Therabotanics” without any further information provided about it. It turns out that Therabotanicsis a company that markets a range of dietary supplements.

Cebria Concerns:

  • Many reviewers state they noticed no benefits
  • Auto-ship program
  • Company claims scientific proof and testing but does not provide any details

There is very little information provided about them or how to contact them, with only an email address listed on their website.

What Does Cebria Claim To Do?

According to the manufacturers, Cebria has the following benefits:

  • Helps to combat age-related memory loss, brain fog and mental fuzziness
  • Improves short-term memory within 30 days
  • Aids in protecting as well as restoring memory

Does Cebria Work?

Cebria’s “patented” formula of neuropeptides should in theory help to achieve their claims of better memory retention by supplementing Vitamin B12 and Folic acid. However, we are unsure why many of the amino acids in the patented blend have actually been included, as they are much better suited to increasing muscle mass than improving cognitive function or memory.

We suspect that overall, this supplement is not likely to significantly boost memory, and the same small results could be replicated by taking folate and vitamin B12 supplements, at a much lower cost to the consumer. This is supported by many of the customer reviews that have been left online; customers have been dissatisfied with the product, claiming no measurable benefits at all.

What Are The Ingredients of Cebria?

The ingredients used in Cebria are detailed below. The individual ingredient quantities are per serving of one capsule.

  • Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCL) 20mg (1000% RDA): Vitamin B6 has several important functions in the body, including ‘allowing the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food’. Whilst taking excess amounts of vitamin B6 will not infinitely improve this ability, a deficiency could make it more difficult to lose weight. Vitamin B6 is naturally present in a wide variety of foods, including meat, cereals, bread and vegetables, and is often included in fortified breakfast cereals.

  • Folic Acid 800mcg (200% RDA): Folic acid is incredibly important in the body, playing a huge role in the regulation of the nervous system. Studies are increasingly associating folic acid deficiency with ‘ageing brain processes’ and have linked folic acid with cognitive and social function.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1123448/
  • Vitamin B12 (as Cyanocobalamin) 600mcg (10000% RDA): Vitamin B12 is naturally present in many foods, primarily meat, fish and dairy products. It has several roles, including aiding in releasing energy from consumed food, and keeping the nervous system healthy. It may be that a deficiency hinders weight loss, but taking excess amounts could be, according to the NHS, potentially harmful.

  • Nuero Pep Ultra proprietary blend 445.3mg

  • Lactose
  • Glutamic acid
  • Lysine
  • Leucine: An essential branched chain amino acid which stimulates protein synthesis in the body, and is used as a building block for muscle. Whilst dieting, supplementing Leucine could help to maintain muscle mass whilst still losing fat mass, as it is used to help fuel muscle.
  • Arginine: This essential amino acid is plentiful in foods and can be made by the body. Important for wound healing and circulation.

  • Aspartic acid
  • Serine
  • Phenylalanine: An amino acid used for treating depression, amongst other things. However, the research to suggest that this will effectively treat depression is outdated, with calls for more testing using updated research methods.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/PHENYLALANINE
  • Valine: Valine appears to be the least potent of the branched chain amino acids, but will still play a small role in stimulating protein synthesis and promoting glucose consumption and uptake.
    Source: http://examine.com/supplements/valine/
  • Threonine
  • Tyrosine: An amino acid that is a building block of protein, this ingredient is found naturally in many foods including meat and dairy products. Some people use it as an appetite suppressant, but there is little evidence that it is effective for this use. Large doses of tyrosine may be useful for increasing alertness, especially in people who are sleep deprived.

  • Isoleucine: Isoleucine appears to promote glucose consumption and uptake. It also plays a role in inducing muscle protein synthesis (although it is not as strong as Leucine).
  • Histidine: an amino acid that is used to make proteins (muscle) in the body.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/histidine
  • Methionine: An amino acid that appears to have numerous benefits including preventing poisoning in cases of Tylenol overdose. It may be unsafe to self-medicate with methionine as it can increase levels of homocysteine, a chemical which might cause heart disease.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/methionine.aspx
  • Tryptophan: An essential amino acid, it is used by the body to make niacin and serotonin.

  • Magnesium Stearate
  • Silicone Dioxide: an anti-caking agent.
  • Starch: Used as a filler.

Does Cebria Have Any Side Effects?

Some side effects could potentially develop when using Cebria. The main cause for concern is the excessive doses of vitamins B6 and B12 found in the supplement.

High doses of vitamins can cause a variety of side effects. Excessive vitamin B6 intake can cause severe and progressive sensory neuropathy, with other effects including painful, disfiguring dermatological lesions, photosensitivity and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea and heartburn. Although Cebria’s level of vitamin B6 is well under this amount, its composition constitutes 1000% RDA.

Excessive vitamin B12 supplementation can cause acne and rosacea; these side effects are much more likely as a single capsule of Cebria provides 10000% of the RDA for vitamin B12.

Methionine can increase blood levels of homocysteine, a chemical that might cause heart disease.

Potential Tyrosine side effects include nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.

Leucine, IsoLeucine and Valine are all Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), which can cause side effects such as fatigue and loss of coordination.

Customers have reported side effects including headaches and withdrawal symptoms when they stop using Cebria.

Caution:
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
If you are unsure about the suitability of this or any other supplement for you, check with your doctor before purchase! If you have any other medical condition or are taking any medications, whether prescription or over the counter, consult your doctor before purchase. Not suitable for anyone with Phenylketonuria (PKU).

Are There Any Customer Reviews For Cebria?

There are lots of reviews for Cebria on amazon, but the reviews are a mix of customers who have ordered from amazon (who are primarily commenting on the actual product), and those who ordered from the official website (whose comments are directed more towards the auto-ship program and misleading trial offer).

Reviews of Cebria are generally very mixed regarding the product’s effectiveness. Many who ordered through the official website are angry about the company’s “risk-free” auto-ship policy, with many complaints citing difficulty in processing returns, cancelling auto-ship programs andthe overall expense of the supplement.

I noticed that whenever I forget to take it for a day or two, my head starts pounding badly, similar to caffeine withdrawals (I stopped drinking coffee one year ago). This happens every single time I forget to take the product. Sometimes I wish I could stop taking this product, but the headache is a bit excruciating so I find myself continuously taking this product.

Doesn’t work and they auto-ship you the product. If you cancel at the wrong time, they charge you shipping both ways. Save yourself the wasted time and money; just say no!

Seen no positive results no negative either shouldn’t have believed the hype.

I’ve been taking Cebria for 4 months. I noticed a difference in the 3rd week. Very pleased with the increase in my short term memory. I remember direction now, still having trouble with the meaning of words sometimes. Upgrading to the ultra and will let you know if there are greater results. I am a believer in this product!

I constantly found myself forgetting small things and sometimes just forgetting things that happened recently. When I found it, I started using this supplement. After about 3-4 weeks of use, I have noticed an increase in my ability to recall information, and I have noticed that I am able to focus with greater clarity.I have been using this for a while now and love it.

I would not deal with this company again, nor would I recommend anyone else to do so. First, the product didn’t work, Second, the canellation process is a burden. The two weeks I used this product, cost me $100. This is how they do business.

Does Cebria Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

The manufacturers of Cebria do not make their returns policy very clear. Their terms and conditions page provides the following vague description:

Return/Refund Policy. You may return items in accordance with the Return Policy instructions that accompany your product shipments or, if you are uncertain about your right to return the product, you may also call Customer Service for assistance. Company will refund your payment when your product is timely returned or cancelled, and within 7-14 business days of our receipt of the returned product if purchased using third-party credit, such as a Visa or Mastercard.

Consumers who have signed up for the ‘free’ trial have 30 days to cancel their subscription before being charged the full price of the supplement. This however seems to be easier said than done as many customers cite that they have run into problems when wanting to cancel and being charged extra shipping fees.

The returns policies of third party retailers may vary.

Where Can I Buy Cebria?

From manufacturer’s website, a single packet of Cebria costs $39.95 but is sold two packets at a time at a total cost of $79.90 plus shipping and processing charges.

The official manufacturer’s website offers a ‘free trial’ of the product, where customers will be charged $9.95 shipping and handling fees. They receive a 60 day supply of two packets of Cebria. However, unless the customer contacts the company to cancel, they will be charged $79.90, the full price of the supplement, 30 days later.

The offer terms and conditions are found at the bottom of the official website, and are as follows:

You will be shipped 2 boxes of Cebria®, which is a 60-day supply. Cebria® is yours to try for 30 days! All you pay TODAY is the $9.95 shipping and processing.

  1. I’m very glad the I decided to research CeBRIA before sending off for the free 30-day sample. I had a suspicion that I might unwittingly and unwillingly getting myself into a situation where I was receiving more product than I wanted, a ha happened before with these automatic sign-ups for a sasmply putting me into a pool of monthly buyers, when that was not my intention at all. Thanks for the honest review. It corroborated all my suspicions about this product, and tipped the scales in favor of the conclusion I was already leaning towards.
