Nervacore from CEL Nutrition claims to improve focus, mental drive and energy. It is sold from Amazon and others online retailers, and has generated lots of comments from users.
Nervacore contains very high levels of caffeine and this is not shown on the ingredients list, which is a serious omission. Caffeine is a stimulant that can cause side effects. The supplement also contains vitamin B, amino-acids and herbal extracts. Nervacore is sold by Amazon and has lots of customers reviews, though they are not all independent and impartial.
Nervacore is not very expensive at $22.95 for a bottle of 90 capsules. However, if used as directed, a bottle could last less than a month.
In our opinion, Nervacore is simply a caffeine pill with some vitamins thrown in; the product information does not actually mention the caffeine content which is a serious omission, especially as the supplement exceeds by far the 300 mg maximum daily recommended dose. Many people avoid caffeine for health reasons and should be warned of the high levels of it contained in Nervacore. The information is also misleading when it comes to vitamin B. Nervacore is advertised as a Vitamin B Complex but contains only 5 of the 9 components of the real complex.

According to the product information, Nervacore is a nootropic supplement that will help you achieve your very best in all parts of your daily life. It contains fourteen ingredients and is designed for you to feel the effects within hours of taking. The principal ingredient is guarana which contains high levels of caffeine – higher than in a coffeee bean – but caffeine is not shown in the ingredient list.
The website claims that Nervacore is a Vitamin B Complex which is not true. A Vitamin B Complex contains all eight vitamins of the B complex but Nervacore only contains five of them.
Take one or two capsules daily, preferably with a meal, at least 30 minutes before any physical or mental activity.
As well as vitamin B, Nervacore contains natural chemicals such as vinpocetine, acetyl-L-carnitine and taurine. It also contains essentail amino-acids, huperzine and black pepper extracts.
CEL Nutrition was founded in 2015 and Nervacore is their sole product. They do not sell it directly but it is easily available on third-party website such as Amazon, Lucky Vitamin and BodyBuilding.com. Nervacore is made in the USA which is a good thing.
According to the product advertising Nervacore
will enhance your mental state and is backed by years of neuroscience research and clinical studies.
This is not all true… There has been researches conducted on the ingredients contained in Nervacore but not on this specific formula. The official website does not provide any link to evidence of research or clinical trial.
The high content in caffeine will probably help you perk up a little, although it might also cause side effects. The maximum daily recommended dose of guarana is 300 mg. Nervacore contains 400 mg per dose and you are encouraged to take more than a serving per day which will certain exceed the recommended dose and could cause unpleasant side effects.

There are numerous customers reviews on Amazon. A few examples below:
I was a little skeptical at first because it promise concentration and focus for the day but I was very very surprised with the concentration that I was having…
Amazing supplement, been taking it for two weeks now and it has helped me at work and in my studies.
The focus and clarity I gain after taking this supplement is superb, I definitely notice the difference on the days I don’t take Nervacore. Would recommend this supplement to anyone…
I received this product in exchange for an honest review of it. This product claims to give added energy and focus when taken as in the once in the morning and again in the afternoon. I did this for a week straight as directed… I did not feel any more focused than usual. In addition, it claimed to help with the afternoon slumps, which again I did not notice any increase in energy. I cup of coffee would probably have the same effect.
This is product is akin to snake oil in a pill form… I did seem to feel a bit agitated about 30-60 minutes after – possibly from the extra Vitamin B? In any case the extra feeling of being agitated – didn’t help me focus with my job, I seemed more like a kitty chasing shiny objects – my focus was scattered…
The pills are big so I would not recommend it to people that have swallowing problems”
Some customers are unsure whether the effects are even real as this reviewer related.
It’s hard to tell with Nootropics whats real and whats placebo. I’ve been using this for a few weeks now and I’m pretty sure it helps with focus and energy… I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
