Lumonol Nova is manufactured by Avanse Nutraceuticals, and according to the label, is produced in California.
Lumonol Nova is a Nootropic supplement to help encourage brain alertness by improving energy, mood, memory, and focus. It contains only three ingredients; Caffeine Anhydrous, L-Theanine, and N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, all of which are known to have an energizing effect as well as other nootropic benefits. You may find that it does work as described, but take for too long and you may find that effects wear off once you become accustomed to using it. In addition, you may experience caffeine-related side effects if you are sensitive to caffeine.
Each bottle of Lumonol Nova contains 60 capsules, enough for 30 servings, so if you use this supplement occasionally you may notice a “lift” as promised.
There could be some side effects when taking this supplement depending on whether you are a frequent or infrequent user of caffeine. This supplement contains caffeine anhydrous which is a concentrated form of caffeine, so can be much stronger than the caffeine in coffee or sodas.
Potential side effects may include headache, fatigue, sleepiness/drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, irritability, and anxiety.
We think the pricing of Lumonol Nova is probably a little on the high side. Broken down into servings, you could be paying a dollar a day, which seems excessive especially when cheaper alternatives are easily available.
You can buy it directly from the Lumonol website where 1 x bottle of 60 capsules costs $29.97.
Buy from the Lumonol website and you are encouraged to sign up for auto-ship, which means you will be sent fresh supplies each month and your bank or credit card billed automatically. Do this and the price is reduced to $23.97 each month, saving $6.00. We do not advise this option as auto-ship programs can be very difficult to cancel.
You can also buy Lumonol Nova via Amazon, where it costs $31.46 for 60 capsules.
Although Lumonol Nova contains some generally safe ingredients that are known to have an effect on focus and alertness, we think it may be a little overpriced for what is a fairly simple supplement easily available from many online and storefront businesses.
In our opinion, this supplement looks OK but is just not good enough to approve. Overall, we do not recommend Lumonol Nova to our readers.

Lumonol Nova is a nootropic supplement in capsule form designed to increase alertness by improving energy, mood, memory, and focus.
Lumonol Nova contains three ingredients – Anhydrous Caffeine, L-Theanine, and N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine (NALT). These ingredients are stimulants, nutrients, and amino acids used to help with memory mood and focus.
Caffeine and L-Theanine are found in tea and coffee, and the ingredients in Lumonol Nova capsules are really concentrated versions of these.
Anhydrous Caffeine is a dehydrated crystallized form of caffeine, and is much stronger per weight than the caffeine that occurs in sodas and coffee. A whole teaspoon of caffeine anhydrous could be up to 28 times stronger than ordinary caffeine. Luckily, there is nowhere near a teaspoon contained in this supplement, it only contains 100mg, but we warned that it will probably feel stronger than the average cup of coffee which also contains around 100mg.
L-Theanine has stimulant characteristics but is not a stimulant in the sense that it increases the heart rate. This is why it is considered to be a useful partner for caffeine, as it adds and focuses the stimulant effects of caffeine without adding to the jitteriness.
The other ingredient, N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, is used in Nootropics as a way of encouraging the production of dopamine and adrenaline.
Many Nootropics out there use these same ingredients, and they have become a recognized standard and useful group in brain focusing supplements.
The ingredient levels in Lumonol Nova are OK because the recommended ratio of 2:1 for Caffeine and L-Theanine is used so they stack correctly. The effect of caffeine on your body will vary from person to person depending on how quickly your own system breaks down caffeine. This is relevant because some people’s genetics are just more likely to react to an ingestion of caffeine than others.
We covered the company’s flagship product, Lumonol, in a previous review.
Details about Avanse Nutraceuticals the company who sell Lumonol Nova are a little sketchy because they don’t have a company website listed only a product purchasing website.
The Avanse Nutraceuticals address varies. Sometimes it is listed as Avanse Nutraceuticals Chula Vista, California and sometimes it is listed as from New York. But these the addresses are hard to verify because business records for Avanse Nutraceuticals don’t appear to exist, and they aren’t a registered or certified business in California or New York.
This does seem a little strange when they claim to have allegedly shipped over a million bottles of its flagship product Lumonol.

There are three active ingredients in Lumonol Nova – Anhydrous Caffeine, L-Theanine, and N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine (NALT)
Anhydrous Caffeine is a highly concentrated caffeine powder where a teaspoon is roughly equivalent to 28 cups of coffee. Caffeine acts on the central nervous system as a stimulant and when it reaches your brain, the most noticeable effect is alertness. So, it’s a common ingredient in medications to treat or manage drowsiness, headaches, and migraines.
Caffeine is sometimes able to increase memory formation when administered in a dose of 200mg or above. This doesn’t happen for everyone because it is thought to work by triggering a specific gene that regulates the breakdown of caffeine in the body.
Caffeine can help to keep you going when you are tired or fatigued but it fails to show any real improvement in learning memory and many other psychological areas. Caffeine can slightly increase reaction time, decision time, and activity levels when ingested.
L-Theanine is an amino acid that is most commonly found in tea leaves. L-Theanine helps to reduce levels of the stress hormone corticosterone, and avoid the interference with memory and learning. It is known to be a good partner to caffeine because although it acts like a stimulant it doesn’t have the same effect on the body, and so can add to the effects of caffeine without causing the jitters.
Finally, the ingredient N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is another amino acid found in the diet that is involved in producing dopamine and adrenaline. L – Tyrosine is the amino acid that is metabolized to produce these neurotransmitters.
These ingredients, when taken together, should help with increased reaction times and decision making but may not improve memory much.
Lumonol Nova is a Nootropic Brain supplement taken in capsule form the ingredients are:
There could be some side effects when taking this supplement. These will largely depend upon whether you are a frequent or infrequent user of caffeine and how the Theanine affects you. Potential 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. L-Tyrosine may raise thyroid hormone production, so those with a hyperactive thyroid should be wary. Also, it may interact with some MAOIs
There are some customer reviews for Lumonol Nova and they are mostly positive. Typical comments include,
Focus, fast thinking! Very pleased with the results of my focus from this product.
Actually works, you get what you pay for! Works great, you have to take it for a few days before it kicks in but it really works.
Four Stars. Great product so far. Helps with my energy and concentration.
Not everyone is satisfied, such as this customer,
A caffeine pill will work much better. Not worth it. A caffeine pill will work much better. Multiple people seem to get more irritated when taking these. It’s not just a focus rush like caffeine. Definitely do not recommend.
There seems to be a guarantee on offer but on closer inspection, this is not as good as it seems. The 90-day money-back guarantee covers only unopened bottles so is not more than a standard returns policy. Therefore, this does not qualify as a money-back guarantee and it is quite misleading.
You can buy Lumonol from the official product website. It is also on sale via Amazon USA. At the time or writing it is not easily available outside of the USA.
