God Mode - Boss Level Labs

What You Need To Know About God Mode

God Mode is a nootropic supplement that is supposedly designed to boost memory, thinking, learning, reflex speed, creativity, and focus.

Boss Level Labs state that there are 847 published studies that support the ingredients used in the supplement, but it appears that some of these studies are irrelevant, with some looking at the non-nootropic properties of the active ingredients.

God Mode is the first product launched by Boss Level Labs, a company founded by Scott Miller, a video game developer whose previous companies created many famous games including Duke Nukem and Max Payne.

What Are The Side Effects Of God Mode?

There are numerous ingredients in God Mode that could potentially cause a range of side effects.

Yamabushitake can cause mild stomach discomfort, and could lower blood sugar levels.

Potential side effects of L-Carnitine include nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, heartburn, diarrhoea, and seizures. It can also cause the urine, breath, and sweat to have a “fishy” odour.

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 minimize the chances of getting an upset stomach. It may also cause nausea, cramping, bloating, and diarrhoea.

Side effects of caffeine can include headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness, and insomnia. 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 consume caffeine within 5 hours of bedtime, as caffeine can interfere with sleep cycles.

Bioperine increases the absorption of some compounds and drugs, increasing the chances of side effects caused by the other compounds, including caffeine. It can also increase the chances of accidental overdose, so if you are taking any prescription medications, check with your doctor that a supplement containing bioperine is suitable for you.

Huperzine A can cause some side effects such as nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, sweating, blurred vision, slurred speech, restlessness, loss of appetite, contraction and twitching of muscle fibres, cramping, increased saliva and urine, inability to control urination, high blood pressure, and slowed heart rate.

How Much Does God Mode Cost?

God Mode can only be purchased on Boss Level Labs’ official website, Boss Level Labs. At the time of writing, one bottle costs $34.95, plus delivery charges, which is a discount from the full price of $49.95 plus delivery charges. It is unclear whether this price will increase again, or if it is a permanent price cut.

There is also a Subscribe and Save option available, which offers customers a 10% discount when they sign up for regular repeated deliveries. Customers can choose between deliveries every month, every 2 months, or every 3 months. In general, we advise our readers to avoid auto-ship programs such as this, as they are easy to forget about and can easily cost more in the long term. Some can also be difficult to cancel, but this varies hugely between companies.

Each bottle of God Mode contains 60 capsules, and so offers a 30 day supply. Whilst this cannot be considered a cheap nootropic supplement, it is far from the most expensive we have ever seen on the market.

Our Verdict On God Mode

If the manufacturers own hype about God Mode is to be believed, it is not only the best nootropic available, but also the first of its kind, designed for professional gamers, and described as “the world’s first energy shot for your brain” and “The World’s First Memory & Mind Accelerator For Gamers and Achievers!”. However, we don’t believe that God Mode is as incredible and unique as Boss Level Labs claim; many of the ingredients are commonly found in nootropic supplements, and none are unique to this supplement alone. We have also previously seen and reviewed supplements marketed towards gamers, including some that now even sponsor esports (professional video gaming) teams.

Some of the ingredients found in God Mode such as Huperzine A, Bacopa Monnieri, and Pterostilbene do have clinical support to suggest that they could boost cognitive function, and improve memory and recall. Other ingredients, however, have less support or none at all. Yamabushitake for example only has one supporting study, performed on participants who had general cognitive decline, and the doses used were far higher than the doses found in God Mode. Coleus Forskohlii is not known to act as a nootropic at all, but one study noted that it reduced fatigue.

Boss Level Labs do not offer a money back guarantee, despite the claim on the official Boss Level Labs website that they offer an “Empty Bottle Guarantee” (which they do not elaborate on). Customers cannot get refunds on opened or used products. We believe that by putting that they offer an “Empty Bottle Guarantee” on the main page of their website, they are misleading customers who do not check the actual returns policy before purchase.

The pricing of God Mode appears to be fairly mid-range for nootropic supplements; whilst it is not cheap, there are many other nootropic supplements that are far more expensive.

Overall, we do not recommend God Mode to our readers.

Does God Mode Work?

God Mode contains a mixture of ingredients, with some having clinical support for their use as nootropics, whilst others have less clinical support or none at all. Some ingredients, including Beet powder, appear to increase nitric oxide production, which may improve blood flow around the body, including to the brain.

Bacopa Monnieri needs to be taken daily for an effect to build up over time, but some of the other ingredients could cause a general improvement in energy levels and mental clarity shortly after taking the supplement.

Bacopa Monnieri reduces anxiety and improves memory. Acetyl-L-Carnitine does have several benefits, including treating fatigue. However, typical daily doses of Acetyl-L-Carnitine range between 630 mg and 2,500 mg, and so the smaller dose of 100 mg per serving of God Mode is unlikely to have a huge effect.

Huperzine A appears to improve cognition in general, whilst Choline could improve memory and cognitive function, depending upon the doses used.

Yamabushitake has never been studied for cognitive benefits or boosts in cognitively healthy people, but a preliminary study suggests that it could offer improvements for people with general age-associated cognitive decline. However, the amounts used in that study were far higher than the amounts found in God Mode.

Overall it appears that God Mode could offer noticeable cognitive improvements in theory, but the formula is weakened by the unnecessary addition of some ingredients that are insufficiently dosed or lacking clinical support for their use as nootropics.

What Are The Ingredients of God Mode?

The ingredients found in God Mode are detailed below. The ingredient quantities provided are per serving of two capsules.

  • Yamabushitake 200 mg: Also known as Lion’s Mane mushroom. It has only been studied once in humans when looking specifically at cognitive decline; the study found that taking 3 grams per day caused significant improvements on a rating scale of dementia in persons suffering from general cognitive decline. It has never been studied in cognitively healthy humans. Source
  • Theobromine 200 mg: Theobromine, extracted from Theobroma Cocoa, is a mild stimulant that is similar in structure to caffeine. Theobromine is thought to be a much milder stimulant than caffeine. Source
  • Artichoke 4:1 extract 200 mg (contains naturally occurring Lutolein): Artichoke Extract (Luteolin) is a natural PDE4 inhibitor in the brain. Excess PDE4 degrades cAMP. cAMP is important for neural signalling within brain cells. Source
  • Bacosides A & B (from Bacopa 50% Extract) (200 mg) 100 mg: Bacopa Monnieri is used to reduce anxiety, improve memory, and seems to have a minor ability to treat depression, making it a general mild mood booster. The standard dose is around 300 mg per day. Effects can take time to achieve a noticeable level, as the effects appear to accumulate with repeated use. Source
  • Acetyl-L-Carnitine (as Acetyl-L-Carnitine HCI) 100 mg: Acetyl-L-Carnitine can boost energy levels, and is used to treat fatigue. As an amino acid, it is also often used by bodybuilders. Typically this ingredient is supplemented in large doses. Source
  • L-Theanine 100 mg: This amino acid is found in green tea, and may increase feelings of relaxation. It may also reduce the negative side effects of caffeine, although there is seemingly no clinical evidence to support this claim. Source
  • Beet Powder containing naturally occurring Betalains 100 mg: Betalains are the reddish pigments that give beetroot and some fruits their vivid colour, but they are also high in nitrates. It is theorised that beets help to increase nitrogen in the body, which increases blood flow including to the brain. Source
  • Citicholine Monosodium (CDP Choline) 100 mg: Choline supplementation appears to improve attention, and could improve memory, although the dose was much higher than appears to be used here, and the relevant study focused upon the elderly. Choline is required to make increased levels of acetylcholine in the brain. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter which is linked with improved learning, memory retention, and recall. Source
  • Caffeine (as Caffeine Anhydrous) 75 mg: Not strictly a nootropic ingredient. Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive. Source
  • Pterostilbene 12:1 Extract 40 mg: a derivative of Resveratrol that appears to be more potent. There is less clinical research for Pterostilbene than Resveratrol, but the research that does exist suggests that potentially it could improve memory and cognitive function slightly. Source
  • Coleus Forskohlii Extract (std. to 10% Forskolin) 20 mg: We were unable to find evidence that Coleus Forskohlii acts as a nootropic. In one study that was looking at its potential link with weight loss, participants taking Coleus reported less fatigue. In general, Coleus is thought to boost the metabolism. However, the clinical trials performed using this ingredient have shown no weight loss, even when the participants’ lean muscle mass increased and fat mass decreased. Source
  • Bioperine Black Pepper Extract 5 mg: Bioperine is a patented black pepper extract which increases the bioavailability of some compounds and medications, including caffeine, increasing their absorption rate. This makes them more effective, but also increases the chances of accidental overdose and the potential for side effects. Source
  • Lithium (as Lithium Orotate) 500 mcg: Lithium can be used to treat certain mental illnesses, and is believed to be useful as a preventative treatment for Alzheimer’s. Source
  • Huperzine A (Huperzia Serrata) 40 mcg: Huperzine-A is found in a plant called Huperzia serrata. Huperzine-A is thought to be a cognitive enhancer. Because of the relatively long half-life of this compound, its use should be cycled, with breaks in usage every few weeks. Source

Does God Mode Have Any Side Effects?

There are numerous ingredients in God Mode that could potentially cause a range of side effects.

Yamabushitake can cause mild stomach discomfort, and could lower blood sugar levels.

Artichoke can cause a range of side effects, including gas, stomach upset, and diarrhoea. It is also possible to be allergic to artichoke; if you have a known allergy to marigolds, ragweed, daisies and similar herbs, you have a higher chance of also being allergic to artichoke.

Potential side effects of L-Carnitine include nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, heartburn, diarrhoea, and seizures. It can also cause the urine, breath, and sweat to have a “fishy” odour.

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 minimize the chances of getting an upset stomach. It may also cause nausea, cramping, bloating, and diarrhoea.

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 consume caffeine within 5 hours of bedtime, as caffeine can interfere with sleep cycles.

Bioperine increases the absorption of some compounds and drugs, increasing the chances of side effects caused by the other compounds, including caffeine. It can also increase the chances of accidental overdose, so if you are taking any prescription medications, check with your doctor that a supplement containing bioperine is suitable for you.

Huperzine A can cause some side effects such as nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, sweating, blurred vision, slurred speech, restlessness, loss of appetite, contraction and twitching of muscle fibres, cramping, increased saliva and urine, inability to control urination, high blood pressure, and slowed heart rate.

Caution:
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. Consult a health care professional prior to consumption if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are taking any prescription medication. Do not consume with any caffeine or stimulants. Improper use of this product will not improve results and is potentially hazardous to a person’s health. Use only as directed. Not suitable for anyone who has any heart related health issues, including but not limited to high blood pressure. If you are unsure about the suitability of this nootropic supplement, or any other supplement, consult your doctor before purchase.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For God Mode?

There are numerous customer reviews for God Mode on the official sales website. Although the customer reviews appear to be authentic at first glance, the dates that they have been left on appears to be slightly suspicious; for a three month period starting just after the product’s release, a new review has been uploaded to the website every three to four days without fail. Whilst it is possible that all of these are real reviews, the spacing feels a little too good-to-be-true.

Below are a selection of the available customer reviews.

Does God Mode Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

Boss Level Labs do not offer a money back guarantee. They offer a 30 day returns policy on unopened and unused products. Rather confusingly, however, they state on their home page that they offer an “Empty Bottle Guarantee”, which they describe as “our promise that you will have zero regrets. Try risk free to see how powerful it is.” We were unable to find any other reference to this Empty Bottle Guarantee on the website.

Boss Level Labs state:
