NuClarity is manufactured exclusively for CogniTune LLC, a company operating solely online. The contact address is in Lexington Ave, New York but there are no guarantees that this supplement was manufactured in the USA. Although a phone number is not provided, you can contact this company by email.
NuClarity is a nootropic supplement that claims to sharpen focus, concentration and memory, reduce perceived feelings of stress and anxiety, and increase working memory and information recall. It contains some reasonable ingredients that may provide you with a mental boost of some sort, although it is highly unlikely to work exactly as described. Despite a glossy website, CogniTune sell only via Amazon and there have been some issues with this supplement not being on sale for long periods of time. If you go to the Amazon page via the CogniTune website you are offered two free bottles according to a pop up banner, but this may not be available when you actually come to buy. It is probable that NuClarity may have been manufactured abroad and imported, so safety could be an issue.
Rhodiola Rosea is generally considered safe, however there may be an increased risk of epilepsy in people who already have this condition.
Ginkgo Biloba can have a negative effect on anticoagulant prescription drugs like Warfarin, and should not be used if taking these medications.
Other side effects may include; nausea, gastrointestinal upset, stomach upset, loss of appetite, headaches, dizziness, constipation, forceful heartbeat, allergic skin reactions, and increased saliva and urine.
NuClarity is not expensive at the time of writing. The CogniTune NuClarity website states that the current price is $29.95 for one bottle of 60 capsules (1 month’s supply). There is also special introductory offer of 2 extra free extra bottles if you go through the official website and buy via the Amazon link.
To claim this offer you submit your email address first, and are then taken to the Amazon site. We imagine that the company may contact you at this point, but there are no guarantees that you will get three bottles for the price of one as claimed.
You can also buy CogniTune NuClarity direct from Amazon where it costs $28.47 for 1 bottle of 60 capsules.
There are some promotional discount codes currently advertised on bulk buys of NuClarity or other CogniTune supplements.
There have been issues with buying CogniTune NuClarity. The supplement was unavailable to buy for some time and this company seems to randomly change their special offers and discounts. There may be price changes too, but at the time of writing this is the position.
CogniTune NuClarity looks OK as a nootropic supplement. It contains some reasonable ingredients that may work as described. Some customer feedback is good, and if you could access the special offer of three months’ supply for just $29.95 it looks like a good deal. However, we have our suspicions about this deal. We imagine that it will require you to write a positive review in return, and of course if it does not work as described you will have gained nothing by having three bottles instead of one. In addition, you will have just suckered other people into buying something that may not work as described.
Things seem to change very rapidly in the CogniTune camp regarding NuClarity. For a long while this supplement was not available, and then it was back on sale with the special offer. Now there are discounts if you buy via Amazon.
Let’s cut to the chase. NuClarity looks OK as a supplement that may deliver some slight benefits, although side effects could be a problem for some. However, we don’t really trust this company and their focus on special offers and discounts. We don’t know where NuClarity is made, and we would be cautious about taking this supplement.
Overall, we do not recommend NuClarity to the Watchdog readers.

NuClarity is a nootropic supplement in capsule form. It contains 7 ingredients which are mainly derived from herbal products, but are well known in the nootropic supplements world. These are; Bacopa Monnieri, Alpha GPC, N – Acetyl – L – Carnitine, Phosphatidylserine, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Rhodiola Rosea Extract, and Huperzine A.
On the whole this is a useful list of “go to” ingredients for brain health and focus. Ingredient quantities look pretty good and are higher than those usually found in similar products, and are closer to the amounts used in clinical trials. Check out the ingredient list to find out more.
There are some issues with actually buying NuClarity. CogniTune supplements are only available to buy via Amazon even from the official website. NuClarity was unavailable for some time from Amazon, leading us to believe that it had probably gone forever. However, it seems to be back now without any explanation and whether this is going to last is anybody’s guess.
You can find CogniTune NuClarity on the official website, and a Facebook page where a sales link leads to an Amazon US page. This was actually removed while the supplement was unavailable.
We have previously reviewed other CogniTune products, such as CogniTune NuBoost.
According to the product website, there are three key features about NuClarity;
CogniTune make the following claims about NuClarity, stating that
“Our fast-acting brain booster is the perfect blend of healthy ingredients for peak mental performance. Boost focus and concentration. Increase natural energy and alertness, and enhance memory retention. Safe brain health formula and ADHD support supplement for all ages.”
On the whole this is a useful list of ingredients for brain health and focus, but one that can be found in many others within this group. The serving sizes of ingredients in NuClarity are higher than usual, and these are closer to the amounts used in clinical trials. However, we do not recommend you use this if you have diagnosed mental health issues or a medical condition such as ADHH without supervision from your doctor.
Rhodiola Rosea has been shown to reduce fatigue and feelings of stress, however only limited testing has been carried out and much of this is anecdotal. People have reported doses as low as 50mg to have had an effect, so the 100mg in NuClarity should be enough to notice if this ingredient works for you.
Huperzine A and Alpha GPC are often paired together in Nootropic supplements, because the pair is thought to slow the breakdown of Acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is known as the learning neurotransmitter and is thought to help with learning and muscle control.
Ginkgo Leaf Extract has been used in trials to help to slow cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Some positive results have been shown with Gingko Biloba taken at 240mg daily for a period of 24 weeks. Gingko Biloba has been associated with significant improvements in cognition. Source
There is actually not much evidence that Phosphatidylserine can help to slow cognitive decline. Doses of 300mg or 600mg of Phosphatidylserine based from soy and given to older individuals failed to show a protective effect on memory relative to placebo.
Positive tests had been made in the past using Phosphatidylserine made from cow brains, but since possible links to Creutzfeldt Jakob disease this process has stopped.
Supplementing Bacopa Monnieri has been shown to improve cognition, by means of reducing anxiety and increasing blood flow. Improvements have been noted in verbal learning, memory acquisition, and delayed recall by one study testing 400 subjects of both genders. Source
Serving size is equal to two capsules.
Some customers have mentioned headaches in their reviews, so this may be a problem with NuClarity.
Other side effects may include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use if you have any underlying medical conditions or are taking prescription medication.
There is a range of customer opinion. Some customers have reported side effects such as this user,
Really didn’t work for me. Felt all of the horrible side effects (dehydration, dry mouth, nausea) but no actually help with mental clarity. Really a bummer.
Other customers are more positive, such as this one,
I am going to continue taking and hopefully will continue to experience great results. Would definitely recommend this product
And these customers who were equally pleased,
Only been using for about 2 weeks but can already see a difference in attention during stressful situations. I am approaching 60 years old and it seems to be helping with short term memory issues. I am going to continue taking and hopefully will continue to experience great results. Would definitely recommend this product.
After a few weeks, I did notice more clarity in thinking and was able to recall people’s names more frequently.
Again, side effects are mentioned,
Top performance my foot! Not with the headaches it’s causes…From the first day I took this I started to get a small headache, the headache got increasingly worse everyday until on the 6th day , I stopped taking it, the headache went away and they have been sitting in my drawer not being taken since.
The CogniTune NuClarity web page claims a guarantee of a 60-day no hassle money-back guarantee. Unfortunately the site gives no terms and conditions as to this offer, so we can’t check this at the present time.
NuClarity is only on sale via Amazon USA.
