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.
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.
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.
Cebria is relatively expensive when purchased directly from the manufacturer as well as from Amazon. It cannot readily be purchased elsewhere at this time.
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 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 is manufactured by Cebria, LLC located in Colorado, USA, however its website claims the neuropeptides in Cebria are developed in Unterach, Austria.
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.
There is very little information provided about them or how to contact them, with only an email address listed on their website.
According to the manufacturers, Cebria has the following benefits:
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.
The ingredients used in Cebria are detailed below. The individual ingredient quantities are per serving of one capsule.
Nuero Pep Ultra proprietary blend 445.3mg
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.
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).
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.
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.
