Below we take an in-depth look at Nootrobox Go Cubes to see whether this coffee-flavoured gummy snack can increase energy levels, aid mental focus, and act as a better alternative to coffee or energy drinks.
Nootrobox Go Cubes is supposedly a much better alternative to energy drinks or coffee, but its main two sources of energy come from ingredients that are typically found in energy drinks, caffeine and glucuronolactone. The main difference between Go Cubes and energy drinks is that they contain theanine and inositol, which should help to promote relaxation. This is useful as it is presumed that the situations where a consumer would turn to an energy-boosting nootropic would be high-stress situations.
It is also useful that the ingredients used in Nootrobox Go Cubes do not overlap with the ingredients used in Nootrobox Rise, the other day-time nootropic manufactured by Nootrobox. This makes the products stackable for increased effect. The size of each packet (four cubes/ two servings) would suggest that this product is not intended for daily use, but rather for the occasional boost. The body quickly becomes used to caffeine, meaning that often consumers have to increase their caffeine intake to feel any beneficial effect. The product contains almost identical ingredients to Nootrobox Sprint, and so these two nootropics should not be used in conjunction.
The product is not covered by any money back guarantee. We do not agree with the idea of subscription services or auto-ship programs, as they are easy to forget about and (depending upon the company) can be difficult to cancel, but for fans of the product the 10% discount could be a tempting offer. We advise trying the product before signing up to any subscription service.
Overall, we do not think that this nootropic is as great as the manufacturers claim. It will only boost energy levels and alertness temporarily, and whilst it may induce a slight feeling of calm, it will not improve performance much more than the combination of a cup of coffee and five minutes of mediation. We do not recommend Nootrobox Go Cubes to our readers.

Treat GoCubes as a better cup of coffee. Snackable, portable, convenient. Take two cubes in place of a cup of coffee.
The manufacturers of Go Cubes state:
GO CUBES are gummy coffee bites with delicious flavour, enhanced performance, and unprecedented convenience on the go.
1. Yummy taste. They’re made with real cold-brew coffee, and they pack a serious amount of coffee into every bite (2 cubes = 1 cup of coffee).
2. Made for performance. They’re made specifically for cognitive performance with the same attention to detail on formulation and quality that you come to expect from Nootrobox.
3. Convenient. Super easy to grab on the go, no mess, and affordable.
The typical effect is one of clarity and focus without the anxiety that can be associated with coffee or energy drinks.
There are several ingredients that will boost energy levels and alertness, including caffeine and Glucuronolactone. Theanine aids relaxation, and may help to reduce the jitteriness that can be caused by stimulants. Inositol reduces anxiety, which can peak in stressful situations.
B vitamins do help the body to run at optimum levels, but whilst a deficiency of these vitamins could be detrimental to health, consumers should be able to get adequate levels of each vitamin from a balanced diet.
Nootrobox Go Cubes has no real or detailed customer reviews that we could locate. This makes it difficult to establish how well the product works in practice. However, the ingredients list reveals that Go Cubes consists of two different types of ingredients; those that will increase energy levels both mentally and physically, and ingredients that will induce a feeling of calm or reduce anxiety. This combination should be beneficial in stressful situations where extra mental energy and focus is needed, such as exams or business meetings.
The ingredients used in Nootrobox Go Cubes are listed below.
Nootrobox, the manufacturers of Go Cubes, state:
Each GO CUBE consists of specially blended mixture of nootropic compounds and are 35 calories each. Each GO CUBE contains 6 grams of sugar for added fuel for the brain. Don’t think that the sugar is there just for taste. The brain is actually one of the most aggressive consumers of sugars in the human body.The typical effect is one of clarity and focus without the anxiety that can be associated with coffee or energy drinks.
There are several ingredients that could potentially cause some side effects.
Caffeine can cause side effects such as headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia. The dose used in a serving of Sprint is roughly the same amount found in a cup of coffee.
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.
Glucuronolactone is under-researched, despite being a common ingredient in energy drinks, and so there are no known side effects. However, this does not mean that there are no side effects of this ingredient.
Inositol can cause a variety of side effects including diarrhoea, dizziness, flushing, itching, loss of appetite, nausea, upset stomach and vomiting.
Nootrobox Go Cubes had not been launched at the time of writing this review, and therefore there are no available customer reviews for this product.
There is no money back guarantee for this product. The company accept returns on unopened products, and a shipping label can be printed from the official website. They do not state how long after purchase returns are accepted.
The launch date for Nootrobox Go Cubes is not advertised on the website, and neither is a price. Each packet of Go Cubes contains four cubes, which is two servings.
There is a monthly subscription option available on all products; customers receive 10% off their purchase, and the product is automatically sent out to them each month. Whilst this is cheaper per month, this option can end up being much more expensive in the long term, especially if consumers forget to cancel the subscription and end up with extra products that they do not want but cannot return.
The company currently ships to the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Turkey, Mexico, Spain, and Germany.
