Neurogen seems to be manufactured by a company called SoulSpa and benefits from an attractive label and a classy-looking packaging. Unfortunately, the information on SoulSpa and the product itself is very limited.
Neurogen is advertised as a complete nootropic supplement but many of its forty ingredients are in unknown quantities, which means the effects could be unpredictable. We believe that Neurogen might be the rebranding of a product called Nootropic Supreme as it seems to contain exactly the same ingredients, but we do not have more information on this subject. However, SoulSpa does not look like a reputable company and the only available address is linked to a residential property in Pennsylvania.
Side effects are unpredictable but may include nausea, vomiting, fatigue, skin irritations, pounding heart, blurred vision, dizziness, cramps, abdominal pain and headaches.
At $17.99 for a month’s supply, Neurogen is fairly cheap.
Neurogen comes with very little information: we have no idea where it is fabricated, the ingredients are in unknown quantities and of unknown quality… In our opinion, it seems a little dodgy and we recommend extreme caution. There is no information about Soul Spa, the company supplying Neurogen, and it looks to be set in a residential property. There is no crime in running a business from home but when it comes to health supplements, you need to be able to trust the company supplying and manufacturing them. The product comes with a money-back guarantee but the information is so vague that getting your money back seems as likely as flying pigs. There are plenty of other supplements on the market which look much better than Neurogen.
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.

Neurogen is a nootropic claiming to improve mental clarity and focus all day. It contains at least twenty different substances, mostly vitamins and minerals including magnanese, chromium and a vitamin B complex as well as vitamins A, C, D and E.
Vitamins and minerals are important to maintain a good health, for both body and mind. This is especially true when it comes to the brain health as those nutrient support the fabrication of natural chemicals such as acetylcholine – essential to the neural pathways . The best way to get all the vitamins and minerals we need would be through a healthy and balanced diet, but it’s not always easy to achieve and that’s when supplements like Neurogen come handy. Additionally, Neurogen contains a proprietary blend of herbal ingredients and natural chemicals. The quantities of individual ingredients are unknown but include green tea extract, liquorice extract and bacopa.
Take 2 capsules once a day; for best results take 20 to 30 minutes before a meal.
Other ingredients include the amino-acid N-acetyl tyrosine as well as choline bitartrate, DMAE and huperzine. With about twenty ingredients in a dose of 692 mg, the individual quantities of each are likely to be very low and could produce limited results.
The ingredient list rang a bell to the Watchdog team and with little research, we discovered that Neurogen is identical to another nootropic sold on Amazon called Nootropic Supreme. Is Neurogen a copy or a rebrand of this other product? Impossible to find out.
According to the label, Neurogen is distributed by Stellar Home Deals. We look into it and found that the address provided is linked to a residential property in Pennsylvania. SoulSpa and Stellar Home Deals do not seem very transparent. Nootropic Supreme – the supplement that is identical to Neurogen – was equally a bit cagey. Is the supplement even manufactured in the USA? Has it been fabricated in facilities that comply with the good manufacturing practice? Does Neurogen conform to the industry standards? No information is provided.
According to SoulSpa, there are five key features to Neurogen:
The lack of background regarding SoulSpa and its distributor makes us doubt the guarantee claim. There is no information on how to claim the guarantee, where to return the product, etc. We think it is very unlikely that you will get your money back if you are unsatisfied with the product.
In our opinion, this supplement is highly unlikely to work.
The quantities of every individual ingredients are unknown. However, if the label is accurate, the twenty ingredients add up to 692 mg so roughly 34 mg of each. Some of the ingredients – such as green tea extract or bacopa – have a standard dose of 300 mg. Other ingredients should be consumed in very little dose – typically 200 mcg for huperzine. But once again, the individual quantity of each component remains unknown. It means that side effects are unpredictable.
The vitamins and minerals appear to be in safe quantities:
The other ingredients are:
These may not be an issue because individual ingredient quantities may be minimal. However with the sheer number of different extracts, you could experience a reaction to one or more of the ingredients.
Potential side effects may include
Not suitable for individuals under 18.
Avoid if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Do not take if you suffer from mental health issues.
Consult a doctor first if you have an underlying medical condition.
Do not take in combination with prescribed medication; this supplement will cause interactions.
There are over 50 customer reviews on Amazon but very few that came as “Verified Purchase” which seems suspicious. This is beacause some people have received free samples in return for a review such as this customer:
This product helps me focus and keep concentrated on the main topic at hand. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
Sifting through the comments, we did find a few reviews marked “Verified Purchase” such as these ones:
I didn’t feel anything in my body.
I actually get DHA, fish oil, phosphatidylserine and lecithin on a daily basis, seemed to do more for me than this product. I really didn’t notice any difference at all when I took this product by itself.
In all the reviews, only one seemed guenuine and positive:
This is a great product that can help me get going after a late or sleepless night, but also when I need to be extra sharp.
SoulSpa advertises a money-back guarantee but does not provide details as how to claim a refund. We believe it is very unlikely that you will get your money back.
Neurogen can only be bought via Amazon USA at the cost of $17.99 for 60 capsules.
