Below we take an in-depth look at Neuro3x to see if it is really the ‘breakthrough brain health supplement’ that the manufacturers claim it is.
Neuro3x has an identical ingredient list to numerous other nootropic supplements including Neuro Alert, Synapsyl and Neuro Enhance. However, Neuro3x is significantly more expensive than most of these other clone supplements, and has some serious red flags that suggest that it is a scam, including a complete lack of contact information and no terms and conditions page.
There are numerous ingredients found in Neuro3x that could cause side effects. Potential side effects include an upset stomach, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, headaches, and changes in blood pressure. More detailed information about the side effects that could develop is provided below under the Side Effects tab.
Neuro3x is incredibly expensive! A single bottle costs $49.85, with free shipping (supposedly reduced from $79.95). Each bottle contains 60 capsules.
By comparison, Neuro Enhance, which has an identical ingredients list (with identical ingredient quantities) to Neuro3x, costs only $18.99 plus shipping per bottle.
There is no way that we could recommend Neuro3x to our readers. With identical products (with literally cloned ingredients lists) available that are much cheaper and available through Amazon, customers should not even look at Neuro3x twice. The sellers have a terrible online reputation, fail to provide any contact information, and have refused to provide other vital information on their official website. This information includes all references to actual ingredients (we obtained the list from a third-party review website), a terms and conditions page, and an address to send returns to. This is completely unprofessional and unacceptable, and other companies have been cautioned by the FDA for such behaviour.
As for the product itself, there are some ingredients present in Neuro3x that have promising clinical support to suggest that they could help to boost cognitive function, memory and focus. However, there are also some ingredients that have no clinical support at all, or only have clinical support from preliminary trials or those associated with Dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. Just because an ingredient helps to treat an Alzheimer’s patient, does not mean that it will benefit a healthy consumer. In addition to this, it appears that some of the ingredients are not provided in adequate quantities for optimum results, making it unlikely that it will provide significant results when taking just one capsule per day.
If customers like the look of the ingredients list, then they should look at our reviews for Neuro Enhance and Neuro Alert, two other supplements that are exact clones of Neuro3x, but available at much cheaper prices, and through more reputable sellers (Amazon).
Overall, we do not recommend Neuro3x at all! Do not buy from this website; if you have purchased Neuro3x and are struggling to get a refund, launch a complaint with the Better Business Bureau about Clean Health Nutrition, the manufacturers of this supplement immediately.
Containing ingredients that have been clinically tested and boasting a 30-day money-back guarantee, OmniMind is quickly rising to the top of the nootropic world.

Neuro3x is advertised as a ‘breakthrough’ nootropic supplement that will ‘help improve memory, focus and recall, improved the health of your brain and even help with increased concentration”. The manufacturers have stripped the official website of their most outrageous claims in recent years; they have previously described the supplement as ‘Viagra for your brain’, and have even claimed (with the use of Photoshop) that the Limitless movie was actually inspired by Neuro3x! They also claimed that the pill would increase your IQ by 77%, a claim that is obviously impossible, insane, and totally fabricated.
Neuro3x is apparently distributed by Clean Health Nutrition (listed on the back of the label). The company do not have a good reputation either; their official website does not reveal what products they make, develop or distribute, but their BBB page has numerous complaints about their terrible customer service and refusal to honour their money back guarantees. Customers have reported being told that they would get a refund that just never arrived in their bank accounts, and have been fobbed off numerous times, being told that the manager was ‘tied up elsewhere’ and that they would get a phone call back, which just never came.
Take one capsule per day with water. Do not exceed two capsules in any 24-hour period.
Neuro3x has an identical ingredient list to three other nootropic supplements that we have previously reviewed, called Synapsyl, Neuro Alert and Neuro Enhance.
Sometimes a manufacturing company will have fixed formulas, which they sell onto other companies, letting them choose their own branding. This highlights the importance of shopping around for the best nootropic supplement for the individual! Neuro3x contains 60 capsules per bottle and costs $49.85, whilst Neuro Enhance contains the same number of capsules, but retails for around a third of the price of Neuro3x!
The manufacturers of Neuro3x have scaled back the claims that they made about the strength and benefits of their supplement in recent years. Currently, they state that the product has the following benefits:
- Improve Memory & Recall – Neuro3x keeps brain tissues functioning at their highest levels by supporting the efficient transport of essential fatty acid, DHA.
- Improve Focus & Clarity – Neuro3x can help enhance mental focus and clarity with nutrients that improves function of neurotransmitters.
- Enhanced Concentration – Neuro3x can help enhance sustained concentration with the boost of acetylcholine for neuron support.
In the past, however, the company has made some outrageous claims. We have seen screenshots of the official Neuro3x website from 2014/5, in which the website claimed that the product would increase focus and memory by 200% within minutes of taking it, and that consumers could increase their IQ by up to 77%.
There are numerous ingredients used in Neuro3x that should help to boost the consumer’s cognitive function, including Bacopa Monnieri, Vinpocetine and Phosphatidylserine. There are also ingredients that could reduce fatigue and improve mood in general. However, if using a single capsule per day, as instructed, some of the ingredients would be provided in inadequate quantities to make a significant or noticeable impact upon cognition and memory. Some of the ingredients could potentially become less effective over continued use, but others, especially Bacopa Monnieri need to be used for a prolonged period for the effects to build up.
The ingredients found in Neuro3x are detailed below. The ingredients list was not mentioned on the official sales website at all, and we had to locate this on a review where a picture of the bottle had been included!
There are numerous ingredients present in Neuro3x that could cause a range of side effects.
L-Carnitine can cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, heartburn, diarrhoea, and seizures. It can also cause the urine, breath, and sweat to have a ‘fishy’ odour.
Studies have shown that Bacopa leaf causes upset stomachs in participants much more than placebos. This has led to the recommendation that this ingredient be taken with a meal, rather than on an empty stomach, as this will minimise the chances of getting an upset stomach. It may also cause nausea, cramping, bloating, and diarrhoea.
DMAE can cause constipation, itching, headaches, drowsiness, insomnia, excitation, vivid dreams, confusion, depression, increased blood pressure, an increase in schizophrenia symptoms, and unwanted movements of the face and mouth.
Vinpocetine can cause some side effects including stomach pain, nausea, sleep disturbances, headache, dizziness, nervousness, and flushing of the face.
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.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. Not suitable for anyone who is taking any medications, whether prescription or over the counter. Avoid use in couples who are trying to conceive, based on theoretical reduction of fertility. Individuals taking MAO Inhibiting Drugs, or with a known medical condition should consult a physician before using this or any dietary supplement. St. John’s Wort may contribute to photosensitivity resulting in skin irritation and redness in persons exposed to strong sunlight or tanning booths. Avoid in patients at risk of bleeding, taking anticoagulants, or with clotting disorders, based on case reports of bleeding. Discontinue use 2–3 weeks prior to some surgical and dental procedures due to increased risk of bleeding. Use cautiously in patients with history of seizures, based on reports of seizures due to Ginkgo seed ingestion. If you are unsure about the suitability of this nootropic supplement, or any other supplement, consult your doctor before purchase.
There are numerous customer reviews for Neuro3x, the majority of which are negative. The reviews below were sourced from Amazon, blog posts and comment sections discussing the supplement.
Really could not tell if it had any effect at all on Helping as a Brain Booster?
Really enjoy these and have seen a difference.
Don’t think it is working as stated.
Tried this for the entire 30-day supply, totally nothing, not even a placebo effect. Did get the auto renewal blocked which was a good thing before wasting more money on this scam. As PT Barnum says there is one born every minute including me.
Used the entire bottle and only felt a mild headache that was there in the back of my head for the entire time. Also gave me gas. No results that even come close to the article were felt or observed on any level. I want my money back, as well as my time. Reminds me of those penis enlargement pills that keep popping up all over the internet. Just more SCAMS…
We also found numerous customer complaints about Clean Health Nutrition, the manufacturers and distributors of this product. It seems that they sell a huge range of products under similarly dubious prices and terms and conditions, costing their customers hundreds!
Customers complain about being refused refunds despite still being within the guarantee period, being stalled and told that they will phone the customer back, claiming that they will process the refund but then not, and charging customers significant handling fees ($15.00 or more).
The official website does state that the company offers a 60-day money-back guarantee, but they do not provide any information about where to actually send the product, and there is no readily available information on how to contact the company to arrange a return. Although there is a link to the Terms and Conditions page, it does not actually exist.
Neuro3x can be purchased from the official website. They claim that they offer numerous bulk purchase discounts. Customers should notice that they claim that they make are mathematically incorrect, yet another sign of the company’s unprofessionalism.
A single bottle costs $49.85, with free shipping (supposedly reduced from $79.95).
Customers are also encouraged to take advantage of bulk purchase discounts: the ‘buy 2 bottles, get one free’ offer (3 bottles total) costs $113.82. The ‘buy 3 bottles, get 2 free’ offer (5 bottles total) costs $149.95.
