Below we take an in-depth look at Nootrobox Rise to see how effective it is at improving memory, stamina and resilience.
Nootrobox Rise has been reformulated in recent months, and the new ingredients list appears to have the potential to improve the consumer’s mental capabilities slightly. The results will most likely be subtle, but could have a range of benefits for over-worked consumers. Rather than directly providing a boost of energy, like a cup of coffee would, the ingredients used in this nootropic appear to help to increase the time until fatigue or exhaustion sets in. One reviewer noted that his usual 3pm slump in energy and productivity did not occur whilst using this product, allowing him to work harder, and more efficiently in the afternoons.
There are some potential side effects that could occur from taking Nootrobox Rise, but many of them appear to be rare. This product is not suitable for anyone who wants to use a nootropic only occasionally, and its effects will be best felt over a prolonged period of use.
Nootrobox products are available exclusively from the official Nootrobox website. A single bottle of Rise costs $49.00. Delivery charges may apply.
Nootrobox will not improve focus or motivation, but it could help those who are already motivated to power through their workday. However, the company’s returns policy is unclear and there is no money back guarantee to cover the rather expensive supplement, and so at this time, we do not recommend Nootrobox Rise to our readers.
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.

Nootrobox Rise is a nootropic supplement that is ‘designed to enhance your cognitive performance’, specifically by improving working memory capacity and reducing fatigue.
Rise is manufactured by Nootrobox, a nootropics manufacturer based in San Francisco, California. It is one of a range of products that can be stacked together for maximum mental performance.
All components of the Nootrobox stacks are FDA GRAS (generally regarded as safe) and/or acceptable as a dietary supplement compound by the FDA. None of the components are banned from athletic body guidelines. This means that even competing athletes, soldiers, and anyone else who may have to pass a drugs test can use this product. The manufacturer adds that ‘Nootrobox is about safe, long-term cognitive enhancement.’ Nootrobox state that their ‘products are simple, with actual dosages and actual potency shown to be effective in actual peer-reviewed clinical’ trials.
This supplement is suitable for vegans.
‘Rise comes in a month-long supply – 60 capsules, two capsules a day. We recommend two protocols:
Protocol A –
Protocol B –
The formula for Rise has changed in recent months, and so many customer reviews and third party reviews of the product are now outdated. The product used to feature Bacopa (45% bacosides), L-theanine and Caffeine, but is now theanine and caffeine free, and uses Rhodiola rosea and Alpha-GPC instead.
Bacopa Monnieri needs to be taken daily for an effect to build up over time, but the other ingredients should cause a general improvement in energy levels and mental clarity shortly after taking the supplement.
Bacopa Monnieri reduces anxiety and improves memory, while Rhodiola rosea reduces fatigue, seemingly allowing previously tired consumers to have improved cognitive performance. Alpha-GPC appears to improve cognition.
Consumers could feel an improved productivity at work from reduced fatigue, a slightly improved memory, and generally having improved cognition.
Nootrobox describe Rise as being for memory, stamina and resilience. They provide the following description of the supplement:
Rise is your daily nootropic designed to enhance your cognitive performance. The ingredients were selected for their nootropics benefits, specifically for their effects on working memory capacity and anti-fatigue.
Rise is designed to be taken habitually, and optimal results are seen with 2 – 12 weeks.
It does appear that Nootrobox Rise works when used in the long term, but its effects as an occasional supplement will be far less noticeable. This is because Bacopa Monnieri needs to be used continuously for several weeks for the effects to build up. Consumers who want a near-instant boost should consider Nootrobox Sprint instead.
There are not very many customer reviews for this product, especially as it has recently been reformulated. However, the customer reviews we did locate suggest that the product’s effects are more noticeable over time.
The ingredients used in Rise are listed below. Ingredient quantities are provided, but the official website does not directly state whether the quantities are per capsule or per serving. The information should be available on the product label.
A-GPC can cause side effects in some people including heartburn, headache, insomnia, dizziness, skin rash, and confusion.
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 may cause nausea, cramping, bloating, and diarrhoea.
Rhodiola rosea can cause increases in blood pressure, and could increase the appetite. It acts as a mild stimulant and so could cause insomnia if taken late in the day, and could cause restlessness and irritability. Dizziness and dry mouth are two other potential side effects of Rhodiola Rosea.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for those under the age of 18. If you are not sure about the suitability of this product, or if you are taking any medications, whether prescription or over-the-counter, consult your doctor before purchase.
We have located some customer reviews for Rise, although some of the reviews are for a combination of the three products in the Nootrobox range. The formula for Rise has changed in recent months, and so many customer reviews and third party website reviews of the product are now outdated.
I’ve tried Nootrobox. It gave me more focus and memory. The focus part is from L-theanine and caffeine. When they’re combined it gives me a lot more focus and no caffeine jitters like coffee. It also has bacopa which seems to help my memory improve the longer I take it.
The packaging is pretty cool. The subscription service is convenient. Plus, you can order small trial packs to see if it works well on you.
None of the Nootrobox supplements worked for me, and YAWN gave me the complete opposite results from what the product card advertised.
Below is a review of Rise from a blogger; the Nootrobox website quotes some of this review in a testimonial, overlooking some of the doubt the writer has about the real effectiveness of the product and the possibility of a placebo effect.
It’s 3 p.m., and I am crushing my e-mail inbox. At this time of day, I’m typically struggling to stave off the post-lunch slowdown by downing another cup of coffee or two. But today, message after message is flying off my fingertips effortlessly—work e-mail, personal e-mail, digital errands I’d been meaning to run for months…
I’ve been taking nootropics on and off for a month, and despite my spurts of productivity, I’m still not 100 percent sure that they’re working. I could well be placebo-ing myself into thinking I’m working harder and focusing better than I typically do.
There is no money back guarantee for this product. The company accept returns on unopened products, and a shipping label is can be printed from the official website. They do not state how long after purchase returns are accepted.
Currently, Nootrobox products are available exclusively from the official Nootrobox website. A single bottle of Rise costs $49.00. Delivery charges may apply.
The product is also available as a part of the complete stack, which contains all three products in the range, Rise, Sprint and Yawn. Here customers have two options; The Full Stack contains 1 bottle of rise (60 capsules), 1 bottle of Sprint (10 capsules) and one bottle of Yawn (10 capsules) and costs $75.00.
The Powerhouse stack costs $120.00 and contains 1 bottle of Rise (60 capsules), 3 bottles of Sprint (30 capsules) and 3 bottles of Yawn (30 capsules).
There is also 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.
