Always on the lookout for products to help keep our brain in the best possible condition, we came across NooCube not so long ago, and – at first glance – were very impressed with their website. It had much more information about many aspects of the product than we’ve been used to seeing on other supplement websites recently.

We were particularly impressed with NooCube’s claim not to contain any caffeine, because like many people were prone to those too-much-coffee jitters so we looked a little closer at NooCube, and this is what we found.

NooCube Pros

What You Need To Know About NooCube

So far we’ve been told that three different companies make it. We don’t know how much of each ingredient is in the blend. No independent study of the product available.

What Are The Side Effects Of NooCube?

NooCube doesn’t list any side effects on its website, but we’ve looked at the kind of possible side effects the individual ingredients can bring one, and they range from digestive problems to muscle twitching, cramps, urinary problems, dizziness, joint pain, sleep disturbances and joint pain.

How Much Does NooCube Cost?

Each bottle of NooCube contains 60 capsules, and pricing is as follows: one bottle for $43.23, three bottles for $86.47 and six bottles for $129.70.

Our Verdict On NooCube

We really wish we knew who really makes this supplement: some people tell us it’s ERGO Group Limited in Dubai while other people (and the NooCube website itself) says Wolfson Berg in Cyprus.

That would be believable, because there’s another supplement company (Crazy Bulks) also giving Wolfson Berg in Cyprus as their contact address – and coincidentally using the identical ‘Winter Sale’ banner at the bottom of their web page as the one on the NooCube website – even to the exact same 20%-off code to put on the order.

And there’s even an offer expiry countdown ticking away on both websites, both showing the same number of days, hours, minutes and seconds.

Still, that might just be a coincidence. Maybe. Oh, and we also found ‘NooCube, by Bauer Nutrition’.

We know what the ingredients are, thanks to an informative website, but we’re totally at a loss when it comes to how much of each there might be: it’s possible there’s too much of one ingredient to make us feel comfortable taking it … or too little of another for it to have any effect on us. We simply don’t know.

So although NooCube may have some good points – no matter who seems to be making it these days – we’re going to err on the side of caution and reject it.

The most popular consumer choice in 2018 is Nooshift

Containing ingredients that have been clinically tested and boasting a full 1-year money-back guarantee, Nooshift has quickly risen to the top of the Nootropic world.

NooCube Review

We found it interesting that the website advises new users to take it easy with NooCube at first, but then says we can up the dosage to double the recommended amount – but no more.

And also at the beginning of any course of NooCube we shouldn’t take any other stimulants – which is going to ruin our morning coffee break. Maybe that’s why they haven’t included caffeine in the formula, because there are enough stimulants in the mix already.

The effects are noticeable, they say, after between 30 and 45 minutes, and should last for 8–10 hours, which is a bit longer than we’ve seen for other supplements.

NooCube Facts

  • Each bottle contains 60 capsules.
  • NooCube is produced either in UEA, Cyprus or Germany.

So far we’ve found three companies supposedly producing NooCube: 1) ERGO Group, based in Dubai. They’re an investment company claiming to have raised a hundred million dollars since 2004 – with a two-year-old website that says very little about the company … and which, judging from the placeholder Latin text on one page – hasn’t even been finished yet.

Company number two would be Wolfson Berg, a private label nutraceutical and supplement manufacturer based in Cyprus. Another of their products is a supplement called Crazy Bulk which shares a lot of features with the NooCube website, specifically a banner at the bottom of the page – just like NooCube’s – advertising a Winter Sale offering a 20% discount with the code sale20 – just like NooCube – and last time we looked, that offer was due to expire in 13 hours, 6 minutes and 43 seconds – just like NooCube’s.

Another Wolfson Berg product tells us there are two Wolfson Berg addresses – one in Cyprus and another in Germany.

And then Company Number 3 tells us they’re talking about ‘NooCube, by Bauer Nutrition’. And Bauer just happens to be a German company.

What all three of these websites have in common (apart, that is, from claiming responsibility for NooCube) is the exact same kind of live chat popup at the bottom right of the screen with somebody introducing themselves and offering to help in whatever way. The people and photos are always different, but we really didn’t have the time or inclination to keep opening up each site to see whether one of those live chat avatars appeared more than once.

How to Take NooCube

From the NooCube website: ‘You should take 2 NooCube capsules with breakfast each morning. Because everyone has distinct neurochemistry, the effects may vary between each person. We recommend you start by taking the recommended 2 capsules, before experimenting to find the best dosage for you. This may mean increasing your dosage to 3 or 4 NooCube capsules per day. Do not exceed 4 capsules per day.’

NooCube Concerns:

  • Production doesn’t fall under US production laws.
  • We don’t know who makes NooCube – or for how long they’ve done so.
  • We don’t know how much there is of each ingredient.

Now either nobody knows what they’re talking about here … or nobody knows for certain who owns NooCube … or NooCube has been passed from company to company like the proverbial hot potato – for reasons nobody actually wants to tell us.

What Does NooCube Claim To Do?

We read this on their website:

It takes just two capsules and as little as 30 minutes to enter a realm of mental clarity and enhanced focus. In this heightened mental state, your reactions are faster, your focus clearer, your awareness heightened. You’re more productive, more efficient, and your mind is sharper. You can push the limits and transcend the boundaries between success and failure. There are no limitations. The possibilities are endless.

Does NooCube Work?

Most of the ingredients of NooCube have been shown to produce results of one kind or another, but because we don’t get to see the amount of each ingredient, we don’t know whether there’s enough of it to produce the results claimed.
So we’d like to say yes, but we don’t have enough information to back it up. In which case we’ll just have to play it safe and say ‘maybe’.

What Are The Ingredients of NooCube?

The website offers information about the ingredients, but not their dosages, so we can at least get some idea of how NooCube is made up. Here are the ingredients as listed on the website:

Alpha Glycerylphosphorylcholine (Alpha GPC) is thought to increase levels of a particular neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine in the brain, and by doing so supporting memory, learning and concentration.

Huperzine A prevents acetylcholine from being broken down and therefore creates a surplus of this particular neurotransmitter which can lead to mental clarity, and improvements in concentration and memory.

Cat’s Claw contains antioxidants to help the body repair environmental-stress-related damage to DNA within cells, and in doing so within the brain it can help improve brain health and cognitive performance.

Bacopa Monnieri contains compounds which are thought to repair damaged neurons and promote new nerve growth to improve neuron communication within in the brain and so improve cognitive function and mental performance
Oat Straw is believed to work by increasing blood flow to the brain, and by increasing alpha-2 waves there.

L-Theanine is an amino acid which stimulates neurotransmitters in the brain while helping to relieve stress.

L-Tyrosine is also thought to reduce the effects of stress and fatigue on cognitive performance and so make it easier for a person to remain focused on the task to hand.

Vinpocetine has been considered to have a possible effect on the decline of thinking skills for different reasons.

Pterostilbene has been seen to reduce anxiety improve cognition and reduce blood glucose when tested on animals.

Does NooCube Have Any Side Effects?

The website tells us,

None of NooCube’s ingredients have been shown to cause any negative side effects. Safety was our priority when creating NooCube, and the formula uses only premium, clinically backed ingredients.

Unfortunately though, from what we can tell NooCube was manufactured outside US production law jurisdiction, which may or may not mean there could be traces of substances used in other manufacturing processes which could bring on an allergic reaction. After all, Wolfson Berg tells us with pride that they have over a hundred different clients from around the world.

But we’re just guessing about allergic reactions here, with the exception of one of NooCube’s ingredients – Oat Straw. This could bring on a possible reaction if you’ve got high sensitivity or an intolerance to gluten.

And as for the other ingredients and their potential side effects, this is what we found:

Alpha GPC: heartburn, headache, insomnia, dizziness, skin rash, and confusion.

Huperzine A: nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, sweating, blurred vision, slurred speech, restlessness, loss of appetite, contraction and twitching of muscle fibres, cramping, increased saliva and urine, inability to control urination, high blood pressure, and slowed heart rate.

Cats Claw: headache, dizziness, and vomiting.

Bacopa Monnieri: increased bowel movements, stomach cramps, nausea, dry mouth, and fatigue.

L-Theanine: headache, dizziness, and digestive problems.

L-Tyrosine: nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.

Vinpocetine: stomach pain, nausea, sleep disturbances, headache, dizziness, nervousness, and flushing of the face.

We’ve copied this from the NooCube website: ‘We recommend you avoid taking any other stimulants with NooCube at first, to see how you respond to NooCube alone. Depending on the individual, some people may be able to use NooCube in combination with other stimulants.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For NooCube?

Yes, there are, and they’re favourable. Then again, what would you expect if the only reviews anywhere on any web page anywhere in the whole of the worldwide web just happen to be on the NooCube website?

Does NooCube Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

They do, but it’s a bit confusing because on one page of their website, we read: ‘but if, for any reason, you are not happy with your NooCube purchase, we will give you 100% of your money back – including shipping and handling!’

… But on another page, there’s ‘simply return the first two empty bottles of your 60-day NooCube supply and any additional unopened bottles of NooCube within 67 days of receiving the order (sixty-day trial plus one week return shipping), and we promise that we will refund you the complete and entire purchase price, excluding shipping charges.’

So as for a refund of shipping (which, if you check the website, is free anyway) your guess is as good as ours.

Where Can I Buy NooCube?

It’s only available from their website. But if you’re interested in becoming a distributor yourself, you could always sign up with MoreNiche, a marketing company that specialises in the affiliate sale of supplements – including NooCube.
