The nootropic supplement industry is growing incredibly fast, with new products constantly being launched. Whilst competition is good for the industry and customers, it can be difficult to determine which products are best for different purposes.
Below we take an in-depth look at Modafy, to see how effective this supplement is at improving memory, clearing ‘brain fog’, boosting mental energy and promoting ‘peak mental performance’.
Modafy is a nootropic supplement that supposedly improves memory, clears ‘brain fog’ and boosts mental energy levels. The manufacturers seem to market the supplement towards university students and anyone who needs to be running at peak mental performance. When purchased from the official website, it is incredibly expensive.
If taken as directed, the chances of developing side effects whilst taking Modafy are minimised, especially if consumers avoid other sources of caffeine such as coffee and tea. However, this does not mean that the product is completely free of side effects. Some customers have reported side effects such as headaches, an upset stomach, nausea and increased anxiety in their reviews, but they do appear to be in the minority.
The full list of potential side effects that could be caused by the ingredients used in Modafy can be found below, under the Side Effects tab.
Customers ordering from the official Modafy website (mymodafy.com), can choose to shop in GBP£ or in USD$. There are numerous packages available. A single bottle of Modafy costs $49.99 or £34.99.
Modafy can also be purchased from the UK Amazon store, which is by far the cheapest option. A single bottle costs £29.99, plus delivery charges. Customers who have Amazon Prime can get free next day delivery.
Overall, we have mixed opinions about Modafy. The supplement contains several ingredients that have supported preliminary evidence for use in preventing or slowing cognitive decline in patients with Dementia or Alzheimer’s, but have little or no clinical support for effective use as nootropics in otherwise-healthy consumers; as with the majority of other nootropics that use ingredients such as phosphatidylserine, support is mostly anecdotal and very subjective, but mostly positive.
The product is expensive when purchased from the official website, but from Amazon it is a relatively affordable nootropic supplement. The manufacturer does not offer any money-back guarantee, and cannot offer returns or refunds on opened products. There are some claims from dissatisfied customers that the positive reviews are faked or paid for, but we were unable to find actual evidence of this.
Modafy is a nootropic supplement that promises razor clarity and heightened focus. The manufacturers of Modafy claim that their product is superior to other nootropics for several reasons; they do not use proprietary formulas, they include therapeutic doses of active ingredients (not token amounts just so that it can be placed on the ingredients list), and they have chosen ingredients that have clinical support.
Modafy is manufactured by Nooblend, who are based in Chatham, in the UK. It appears that at the time of writing, Modafy was Nooblend’s only product. The company can be contacted using the information found on the official Modafy website.

Does Modafy Work?
Whilst there is some clinical support for most of the ingredients found in Modafy linking their use with cognitive benefits, the studies are typically only preliminary and in the context of patients who have Alzheimer’s or who have experienced serious head trauma.
Phosphatidylserine has clinical support linking it with the treatment of cognitive decline, but there is no strong evidence linking it with improved cognitive function in those who are not cognitively impaired (such as those suffering from Alzheimer’s).
Lion’s Mane does appear to have some cognitive benefits in people with Dementia, but it has only been studied in humans once, and never in people who are not suffering from cognitive decline.
Coenzyme Q10 does have some benefits, including being an antioxidant, but again, is not linked with improved cognitive function in any way.
Caffeine will increase alertness and energy levels temporarily, but is not strictly considered a nootropic. Theanine is thought to induce a feeling of calm, and may reduce the potential side effects of caffeine.
Anecdotal evidence from customer reviews suggests that Modafy does work in many people to improve mental energy levels and focus. However, there is far less clinical support.
What Are The Ingredients of Modafy?
The ingredients used in Modafy are detailed below. The ingredient quantities listed are per daily serving of three capsules.
- Vitamin B12 10 µg (RDA 1000 %)
- Vitamin B3 32 mg (RDA 200 %)
- Vitamin B6 5 mg (RDA 357 %)
- Alpha GPC 50% 400 mg: In Europe alpha-GPC is a prescription medication for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, but in the USA it is a prescription-free dietary supplement. It appears to have some cognitive-boosting properties, helps to prevent cognitive decline, and may also enhance power output in athletes.
- L-Theanine 300 mg: This amino acid is found in green tea, and 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 clinical evidence to support this claim.
- Phosphatidylserine 20% 200 mg: Several studies with phosphatidylserine indicate improved cognitive abilities and behaviours, but the studies focused on Alzheimer’s patients; it is possible that these effects could also benefit consumers in general, but there is no real clinical support to support this. The FDA has stated that Phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of cognitive dysfunction and dementia in the elderly.
- Guarana 150 mg: A berry that naturally contains caffeine.
- Caffeine 150 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.
- Lion’s Mane 150 mg: A type of mushroom, also known as yamabushitake. 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 people suffering from general cognitive decline. It has never been studied in cognitively healthy humans.
- COQ10 50 mg: This coenzyme is found naturally in some foods and can be synthesised in the liver. Cells in the body ‘use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules.’ It is also thought to boost energy levels and speed up recovery from exercise.
- Black Pepper Extract (Piperine) 6 mg: Piperine is used for increasing the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. In other words, it increases the amounts of nutrients that are absorbed into the body in the digestive tract. It may also increase the absorption of various drugs, which may lead to potential side effects or even accidental overdose.
Does Modafy Have Any Side Effects?
The manufacturer reassures consumers on their website that side effects are extremely rare; whilst this could be true, it does not mean that it is completely side effect free. We did find numerous customer reviews reporting a range of side effects. There are numerous ingredients found in this supplement that could cause a range of side effects.
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 take this supplement or any other source of caffeine within 5 hours of bedtime, as caffeine can interfere with sleep cycles.
Side effects of Phosphatidylserine can include insomnia and stomach upset, particularly at doses over 300 mg. It can be made from either plant or animal sources, and so may not be suitable for vegetarians – Nooblend state that Modafy is suitable for vegetarians.
Piperine can increase the absorption of caffeine and other stimulants, increasing their effectiveness, but also making side effects more likely. Piperine can also affect the absorption of other medications, increasing the chances of accidental overdose.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine and other stimulant ingredients. If you are unsure about the suitability of this or any other supplement, consult your doctor before purchase. Not suitable for anyone who is taking any medications, either prescription or over-the-counter, especially as Piperine increases the chances of accidental overdose.
Are There Any Customer Reviews For Modafy?
There are over 100 customer reviews for Modafy on Amazon. The majority of these reviews are positive, but there are a small number of people who gave low star ratings, stating that they noticed no benefits whilst taking the product, or that they experienced unpleasant side effects.
This product made me feel nauseous and disorientated for days. I genuinely needed to take three days off work. It had the opposite effect of helping me concentrate. I couldn’t focus or think straight and felt very anxious and nervous, which is out of character for me. This might be due to the caffeine dosage. I would advise to stay away from this product.
Gave me headaches, an upset stomach and an awful feeling as it wore off. This is probably due to the form of concentrated caffeine within each serving. It’s a good thing I never went about two thirds of what they recommend as a dose. You are better off with a cup of tea or coffee and a litre of water.
I’ve been taking these for about a week now and it’s definitely helped me with my focus and staying alert through the day. It also seems to help with my short term memory which is sometimes pretty shaky. If you find yourself procrastinating through the day, I’d definitely recommend writing a to-do list and using some Modafy. Would definitely recommend!
I recently noticed that my attention span and overall mood were terrible. I put a lot of it down to work I do and stress at uni… I looked around and found this. I’m not one for believing in things like this, but I thought I’d give it a try anyway, so I purchased this supplement and boy am I glad I did. Since I started taking them last week, I have been feeling much better. I feel more alert and my mood has improved, especially when I have a huge workload that would normally stress me to the max. My concentration is better and I now find myself focusing on the things I am doing without drifting off into another world. These have helped me a lot and I would definitely recommend you try!
