IndeZone

Nootropics are a relatively new branch of the supplement market, and a lot of the ingredients have only anecdotal and preliminary clinical support; this makes products approved by government agencies as fit for purpose to be very unusual. IndeZone is approved by Health Canada as a product that helps to enhance cognitive performance.

Below we take an in-depth look at IndeZone to see how effective this nootropic supplement really is.

IndeZone Pros

  • Clinical support
  • Approved by Health Canada: “Helps to Enhance Cognitive Performance”
  • Mostly positive customer reviews

IndeZone Cons

  • Unclear returns policy
  • Promoted as superior to coffee, but contains a similar amount of caffeine- not suitable for anyone sensitive to caffeine
Watchdog Rejected

What You Need To Know About IndeZone

IndeZone is a nootropic that is approved by Health Canada, meaning that it can be marketed in Canada as a nootropic that “Helps to Enhance Cognitive Performance”. The product was also featured on Dragon’s Den in October 2017. IndeZone is manufactured by Ioffe Biotechnologies Inc., who are based in Canada.

What Are The Side Effects Of IndeZone?

IndeZone could potentially cause some side effects. The likelihood of side effects occurring is greatly increased if you are also consuming other sources of caffeine throughout the day, including tea, coffee, energy drinks and other supplements.

Caffeine can cause side effects such as headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness, and insomnia. Theanine may reduce some of these side effects, especially jitteriness.

Although Tyrosine is tolerated generally in very high doses, it can cause some side effects including nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.

How Much Does IndeZone Cost?

IndeZone can be purchased from the official sales website, GetIndeCart. Here a single pack of 20 capsules costs CA$14.99, plus shipping charges. Customers can also sign up for the company’s auto ship program, with a choice of delivery every one, two, or three months. Bulk purchases of two or more packets per delivery get free shipping on the auto ship program. This free delivery option is only available to US and Canadian customers.

IndeZone is also available from Amazon, with a single pack again costs CA$14.99. There is free delivery on orders over CA$35.00.

There are 20 capsules per packet, and consumers are instructed to take one or two capsules per day. This could mean that a packet lasts for as little as 10 days of use, making the product much more expensive to use in the long term!

Our Verdict On IndeZone

We have mixed opinions about IndeZone. The product does seem to be a good introductory nootropic, best considered as the next step up from caffeine; consumers who like the product describe the effect as a “soft focus”, with slight but noticeable results. However, for some consumers it seems that the product was not strong enough, whilst for others taking the higher dose caused a range of side effects.

If you are sensitive to caffeine, then this product is probably not suitable for you, as each capsule contains 100mg, which is roughly the same as a large cup of coffee.

The official website does not have an official terms and conditions section, and does not feature a formal explanation of the returns and policy; the website hints at a money back guarantee, but it only appears to apply to a customer’s first purchase. We dislike it when company’s leave customers in the dark about their rights as shoppers.

Whilst a single packet of 20 capsules is not very expensive at just CAD$14.99 (about USD$12.00 or GBP£9.10), if you need to use the higher daily dose to feel the effects, a single pack will last for just 10 days. This means that overall, the cost to use this supplement regularly is not as great value as it looks at first glance. Whilst it is still far from the most expensive nootropic supplement we have seen, it still should be noted IndeZone does not really come at a bargain basement price.

Overall, we do not recommend IndeZone to our readers; whilst the product is seemingly a good choice, the retailers still have some work to do to meet our exacting standards.

IndeZone Review

IndeZone is a nootropic supplement “that boosts brain power in a way that coffee can’t”, according to the manufacturers. It contains about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee, but also contains five other active ingredients, including theanine, which may reduce the side effects of caffeine. The Canadian product has been approved by Health Canada, as a product that helps to improve cognitive performance. This certificate would not be provided without sufficient clinical support being available.

What Does IndeZone Claim To Do?

The manufacturers provide the following description of the product’s benefits:

“IndeZone Energy is patent-pending and approved by Health Canada with the health claim: ‘Helps to Enhance Cognitive Performance.’”

“IndeZone Energy also delivers naturally-occurring building blocks for important brain chemicals that are involved in motivation, attention, and learning.”

Does IndeZone Work?

The ingredients list does contains ingredients that have clear clinical support for their use as nootropic supplements. Caffeine increases alertness and energy levels, making it ideal for a long day at the office. Theanine appears to reduce the side effects of caffeine such as jitteriness, allowing a calmer kind of energy boost that allows you to focus on the task at hand, rather than bouncing off the ceiling.

The rest of the ingredients, including rhodiola and taurine, appear to reduce fatigue, both physical and mental, especially in people who are already sleep deprived.

Unlike many other supplements, IndeZone does not appear to affect other areas of cognition such as memory, purely focusing upon boosting mental energy and alertness.

What Are The Ingredients of IndeZone?

The ingredients found in IndeZone are detailed below. The ingredient quantities listed are per single capsule, and consumers are instructed to take one or two capsules per day.

  • L-Tyrosine 250 mg: Large doses of tyrosine may be useful for increasing alertness, especially in people who are sleep deprived. Source
  • Caffeine 100 mg: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness. Source
  • L-Theanine 80 mg: This amino acid may play a small role in weight loss, as well as increasing feelings of relaxation. It may also reduce the negative side effects of caffeine, although there is seemingly no strong clinical evidence to support this claim. Source
  • Rhodiola 40 mg (3% Standardized Salidroside): Rhodiola appears to reduce fatigue, both mental and physical, and consumers in clinical trials rate their subjective wellbeing as higher than placebo-takers. Appears to somewhat improve cognition, but this could be a side effect of fatigue reduction. Source
  • Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) 20 mg
  • 5-HTP 10 mg: 5HTP is used by the body to make serotonin, which primarily plays a role in regulating mood. Some studies have shown that 5HTP improves mood, whilst some animal studies suggest that it also suppresses the appetite. Source

Does IndeZone Have Any Side Effects?

There are some ingredients in IndeZone that could theoretically cause side effects. The majority of the customer reviews expressly state that they did not experience side effects.

Although Tyrosine is tolerated generally in very high doses, it can cause some side effects including nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.

Significant quantities of caffeine can cause side effects such as headaches, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, and problems sleeping. Consumers should avoid other sources of caffeine whilst taking this supplement to avoid increasing the chances of side effects developing. Consumers should also stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day, and should not taking this product in the late afternoon or evening. These measures will minimise the chances of side effects occurring.

Theanine causes a state of relaxation without drowsiness, and may help to counteract some of the potential side effects of caffeine, such as jitteriness.

Caution:
Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone sensitive to caffeine or other stimulants. Not suitable for anyone with any cardiac related health issues, including but not limited to high blood pressure.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For IndeZone?

There are some customer reviews for the product on Amazon, where the product is sold, as well as a few customer reviews on the company’s Facebook page.

As someone who regularly finds himself working 80 hours a week, for a long time coffee was my lifeblood. I had a brief stint trying caffeine pills as well but couldn’t handle the jitters and side effects that they inevitably brought on.

I gave IndeZone a try on a recommendation from a coworker and now find myself more focused and energized every day. Coffee intake is nearly non-existent and, on top of everything, my net caffeine consumption has significantly decreased.

Will definitely be purchasing again.

After extensively reviewing the landscape of products that claim to provide ‘clean energy’ with ‘no crash’, I somehow stumbled upon IndeZone. Being a fairly new product on the market, reviews are scarce, but I based on the ingredient list alone I made a purchase.

Packaging is strong, well designed with all the information clearly printed throughout. I really like the “Go Get It’ on the interior on the packaging – it’s an extra motivational boost as you’re about to dig into the task at hand.

The ingredients are reasonable. Primarily plant based, with some building-blocks for neurotransmitters mixed in as well. I’m really happy that the dosage for each pill is moderate- 100mg of caffeine per pill is exactly what I need. I hate how some other energy pill companies load their products with 300mg+ of caffeine per serving… Are they trying to give me a heart-attack?

The effect is super smooth. It comes on slowly, and builds into a nice, soft focus. If you were to take more I’m sure the effects could be aggressive, but a soft-focus is all I need to get through my work.

Overall, I’m glad I stumbled upon this supplement and I will likely continue using it in the future. Additionally, the fact that it’s Canadian designed and manufactured is an added bonus. Canadians are known for high-quality products, particularly pharmaceuticals, so it’s an added peace of mind to know that this product is being made in a facility with high quality control.

Package says take 1 or 2 capsules on an empty stomach… Take two. One is great for getting your caffeine fix, but if you really want to feel it take two caps, trust me. For what you get at this price though it’s a steal. Feels much cleaner than coffee or caffeine pills. My new favourite product.

As a student, I’ve always been looking for “brain steroids”. So I decided to purchase a package with high hopes and tried it out. I can’t speak for everyone but for me it was trash and a waste of money. I got headaches from taking the highest dose (2 pills) and my focus felt “small and tightened”. Dopamine wise, I felt nothing. Consuming one pill at a time didn’t do much for me other than make my stomach uneasy. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s to stay natural and follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen. That’s truly the healthy long-term way of having a cognitive edge.

Three stars. Really doesn’t do much for moi and I’m suspicious of most of these comments not being real.

Would highly recommend this product for anyone who wants to stay consistently focused throughout the day. As someone who struggles with ADD, this product has really help me to stay focused and complete projects. Absolutely no side effects or downing feeling like when you have coffee. This is a product I always keep in my backpack or purse so I will be needing to repurchase for sure!

Great stuff to boost my brain and feel more energized in the gym. Also, helps while driving. I think this is the right balance of ingredients and they all are natural. Did not notice any side effects.

Gives me steady focus to do the job and feel good.

Didn’t work for me, I tried 1 pill the first day. Then I went to 2 pills, still nothing. I tried it for 3 days and nothing.

Does IndeZone Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

We struggled to find a returns policy on the official IndeZone website. However, the website does state that they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. They also add:

“If you’re not happy with your first order, we’ll make it right”.

They do not specify what their returns policy is for other orders, or how exactly they’ll make it right. Customers who are seeking a refund should contact the company directly to discuss their circumstances.

When ordering through Amazon, IndeZone is covered by Amazon’s standard returns policy.

Where Can I Buy IndeZone?

IndeZone can be purchased from the official sales website, GetIndeCart. Here a single pack of 20 capsules costs CA$14.99, plus taxes and shipping charges. Customers can also sign up for the company’s auto ship program, with a choice of delivery every one, two, or three months. Bulk purchases of two or more packets per delivery get free shipping on the auto ship program. This free delivery option is only available to US and Canadian customers.

Depending upon where you are located and how quickly you want the product, shipping charges can vary hugely. For delivery to the UK, we were quoted CAD$3.88 for the slowest option (28-84 business days), and $5.61 (6 to 10 business days), as the package was classified as small.

IndeZone is also available from Amazon, with a single pack again costs CA$14.99. There is free delivery on orders over CA$35.00

  1. Hi Rachel,

    My name is Altair Ioffe, and I’m the founder of the company that makes Indezone Energy. I wanted to first of all thank you for taking the time and energy to write such an in-depth review on our product. I’m grateful that you recognized our quality standards and saw Indezone as a great introductory nootropic. More importantly, however, I wanted to thank you for your critical feedback and suggestions on how we can improve our website and transparency. For this reason, I’d like to address your feedback here, and clarify which changes we’re making as a result:
    * It’s extremely important to me that we’re transparent with our customers, which is why I personally and directly answer most of our customer emails, letters, and questions. We’re very accommodating with our guarantee (actually no customer has asked for a refund yet!), so it didn’t occur to me to upload terms and conditions of our refund policy. I am, however, glad that you brought it up, and we have now updated our website to include terms and conditions linked in the footnotes (we tried to keep them as flexible as possible for our consumers).
    * In terms of pricing, please note that our pricing is in Canadian Dollars, which amounts to USD $1.20 per day if taken every day at the maximum suggested dosage. This makes Indezone Energy one of the best-priced brands, despite having the highest quality standards and an approved health claim.

    If this clears up your previous concerns or suggestions for improvement, kindly consider reflecting these updates in your review. If you believe that we still have some areas of improvement, I would like to work towards them, so please point them out.

    Kind regards,
    Altair
