Lumonol Smart Drink is manufactured by Avanse Nutraceuticals and according to the label, is produced in California.
Lumonol Smart Drink is a supplement to support mental performance during work, play, and study, so you can take it any time you need. It is essentially the flagship product LUMONOL, but it comes in the form of a powder that you simply add to liquid and drink.
The ingredients are the same as Lumonol but without the inclusion of Noopept. As Noopept is a major component of original Lumonol, it seems likely that this omission will make a difference to the overall experience of this supplement.
Levels of ingredients are quite safe in Lumonol Smart Drink, providing the manufacturer’s instructions are followed. If you are new to this nootropic you may be affected while your body adjusts. Potential side effects include high blood pressure, low blood pressure, and changes to blood sugar levels. There may also be nausea or vomiting, headaches, dizziness, or an allergic reaction.
Lumonol Smart Drink is expensive. One bottle contains 30 servings with its dehydrated weight being 135gms (4.8 oz), and costs $59.97. This works out as a fraction under $2 a day over 30 days.
Lumonol Smart Drink is available from the Avanse Nutraceuticals website and if you want it shipped to Europe, the cheapest European shipping option adds a further $14.97 to the price. It is not currently available from Amazon US.
The company encourages a sign up to auto-billing where fresh supplies are sent each month, and the payment is automatically taken directly from your credit card account. Although this option comes at a slightly discounted price, we don’t recommend auto-ship programs because they can be hard to cancel.
If you are already a customer for Avanse Nutraceuticals Lumonol, you will be aware of its effects. What seems difficult to understand is why the Noopept has been removed from the smart drink ingredients. This is further clouded by the Lumonol advertising which states that it is included, yet it does not show up on the ingredients label.
Lumonol Smart Drink is the same price as Lumonol in tablet form, so unless you don’t need the Noopept or don’t like taking tablets, we can see little point in buying this version of an already existing product.
Overall, we do not recommend Lumonol Smart Drink to our readers.

Lumonol Smart Drink is the drinkable version of Avanse Nutraceuticals flagship product LUMONOL™. This version is in a dehydrated powder form so that you can add water to it and drink, as an alternative to taking tablets which is still the most popular form of this product.
Lumonol Smart Drink is advertised as a standalone alternative to Lumonol Tablets, or as an “add-on” to Lumonol tablets to amplify their effects!
The ingredients for Lumonol SMART DRINK are the same as Lumonol the product, except the smart drink version contains no Noopept. So, why has Noopept been left out of the mix? Well, we don’t know and the Lumonol website is not going into detail about this either.
Noopept is a brand name for a chemical called N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester, which is the synthetic alternative to Piracetam. The main difference is that Noopept is estimated to be between 1,000 and 5,000 times as potent as the original. So, our best guess is that leaving out this ingredient is to avoid overdosing this one ingredient.
This seems like an odd choice to leave out of the drink because many users confirm that they can feel the effects of Noopept very quickly, and is probably the main reason why the original Lumonol is considered Avanse Nutraceuticals flagship product.
There are a few other concerns about some of the side effects of Lumonol Smart Drink. The product is known to react badly with some prescription heart medicines. This is true of Guarana because it is a stimulant that can react badly with other stimulants like amphetamines. Ginkgo should not be mixed with medicines that slow blood clotting, and these include aspirin and nurofen because it may amplify these properties.
We also think that the stimulant properties in Lumonol Smart drink may outweigh the anxiety-reducing ingredients, and so may make users feel a little wired especially if mixed with Lumonol original.
The claims of Lumonol Smart Drink are simple to understand. The advertising states:
Just mix and shake, Smart Drink Instant offers the world’s first tastier version of Lumonol for those of you who prefer all natural herbal earth grown nutrients in a delicious drink rather than swallowing pills.
The ingredients of Lumonol Smart Drink have been shown to help with focus issues, bring clarity, and help to those who struggle often with poor productivity, distractions, occasional nervousness, uneasy feeling, or occasional forgetful memory.
Lumonol Smart drink is for improving focus, poor memory, occasional nervousness, and fear, or a supplement to improve focus and reduce anxiety. The ingredients are broken down into 3 groups on the label of Lumonol Smart Drink covering;
Focus is supplemented by Acetyl L Carnitine for alertness, N – Acetyl – L – Tyrosine, which is involved in producing dopamine and adrenaline, and finally Phosphatidylserine, which is thought to help with memory improvement.
The energy content is from Panax Ginseng, Guarana, and Hordenine. There is no real hard evidence to say why Ginseng should work, but that hasn’t stopped people using it as an energy booster for the last 1000 or so years. Guarana contains caffeine and has many other stimulatory properties, but may cause some side effects. The last ingredient in this group is called Hordenine, which is made from Barley and reacts with the sympathetic nervous system in the body, and has been shown to mimic the effects of the flight or fight response.
The memory ingredients include Gingko Leaf Powder and Alpha GPC. Gingko Leaf powder may help prevent cognitive decline, and may also help protect against anxiety and other mental health problems. However, it can cause a range of side effects. Alpha GPC reduces the breakdown of Acetylcholine that causes an increase in Huperzine A.
The only real difference we can find between Lumonol and Lumonol Smart Drink is the exclusion of Noopept, a more powerful version of one of the original Racetams, Piracetam. Noopept is included in the tablet version, but not in the powdered drink version and there is no explanation given as to why this has happened.
On the whole Lumonol Drink smart contains some good and bad ingredients, including Gingko and Guarana, having some side effects and possible reactions with some prescription medicines. Lumonol Drink smart will probably make you feel more alert, but may not give you that much release from anxiety because its stimulant properties seem to heavily outweigh its anti-anxiety properties.
As it lacks Noopept, it may not give you the kick that the original tablet form of Lumonol had, but may make you feel a little wired instead.
Rather than list the quantities of each ingredient, Avanse Nutraceuticals have opted to group the ingredients for Lumonol Smart Drink into 3 blends and give each of these groups an ingredients quantity.
Although generally safe, 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.
There is only one review on Amazon US which reads,
I can’t drink as it has caffeine in it
This is not very helpful, but this is the only review for the smart drink version of Lumonol.
There seems to be a money-back 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.
You can only buy Lumonol Smart Drink directly from the official product website. Customers outside the USA can also buy, but will have to pay additional shipping costs.
Lumonol Smart Drink is currently only for sale online.
