Red Supplements is an online supplements company founded by Christopher Deoudes better known as the so called pick up artist called Good Looking Loser and Victor Pride a bodybuilder and self proclaimed motivational speaker on male self-improvement. We have covered supplements by this gruesome twosome before but other Red supplements are focused on bodybuilding and weight loss with Red Monkey being their only foray into the world of nootropics.
Red Supplements Red Monkey is a nootropic supplement that may help ease social anxiety as described but what the product information does not tell you is that Phenibut, the principal ingredient is highly addictive. Although it does not seem to be harmful in moderation, you may struggle with taking this substance and find that once you stop, you experience numerous withdrawal symptoms which can be severe. If this is something you are prepared to risk, and we do not advise you to risk it, Phenibut is available elsewhere for a better price. If not, stay away from this supplement.
Side effects are likely and may include nausea, lightheadedness, drowsiness, headaches, stomach discomfort, loss of memory and blackouts. Although the principle ingredient appears to be relatively harmless, it can be addictive and you will experience withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking it.
Withdrawal symptoms include anxiety, agitation, insomnia, brain fog fatigue, vomiting and nausea, depression, dizziness, feelings of worthlessness and low self esteem, jitteriness, palpitations.
Do not overuse and do not drive, operate machinery or drink alcohol (or other drugs) while using.
Red Supplements Red Monkey is not very expensive. You are not supposed to take it every day so if you follow the instructions to use only a couple of times a week, you have between 15 and 30 servings.
It is only available from the Red Supplements website and costs $27.99 for 60 capsules.
We can’t beat around the bush; we do not like Red Supplements or the two jerks behind the company. Deoudes and Pride make a career out of peddling their sexist nonsense and toxic advice to impressionable young idiots, but Red Monkey is a new low even for them.
Phenibut abuse is a problem for many people yet Red Supplements does not bother providing any warnings about the potentially addictive nature of this substance. This means it is likely to catch users unawares and although it is not particularly dangerous, it will cause a psychological dependency and some real physical and depressive side effects when you come to stop using it. You should definitely avoid this supplement.

Red Supplements Red Monkey is billed as a nootropic supplement that will help you in social situations where you may feel nervous such as when you are trying to pick up women. You might think this is a strange example to use but there is nothing much that is normal about Red Supplements.
The company was formed by two well-known ‘players’ and internet marketeers who make a living telling men how to score with women and have since launched a supplement company to support some of their dodgy advice.
Red Monkey contains a range of ingredients that we often see as components in nootropic supplements and weight loss pills. However the principal ingredient is Phenibut. This synthetic chemical is similar to a brain chemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and is sometimes prescribed in Russia for a range of anxiety-related disorders including anxiety, insomnia, post-traumatic stress syndrome and similar.
Like GABA, Phenibut can induce feelings of calm and is effective in helping people cope with stressful situations. Although Phenibut is not prescribed in the USA, it is becoming an increasingly popular nootropic and is available from a wide range of sources online.
There are concerns about using Phenibut because although it is effective, it is addictive and is often abused by users who can become dependent. It is currently legal in the USA partly because there does not seem to a legal definition for this drug. However it is banned in many other countries including the UK.
Take 2-4 capsules twice daily on an empty stomach. RED MONKEY SHOULD NOT BE CONSUMED MORE FREQUENTLY THAN 2 DAYS PER WEEK AND USAGE SHOULD NOT EXCEED 16 CAPSULES TOTAL PER WEEK. Do not drive, operate machinery, or combine RED Monkey with alcohol or prescription medications
The other ingredients look pretty good. These include N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) derived from the amino acid and may have numerous medical applications. It may help build immunity by preventing oxidative damage to cells.
It contains 5HTP, a substance present in the body and also taken as a supplement because it is a precursor to serotonin production. There is L Theanine, an amino acid found only in tea and the component that gives tea its relaxing yet energising effects.
There are a couple of herbal ingredients; Bacopa Monnieri and Rhodiola Rosea both natural plant extracts derived from traditional medicine and currently popular in supplements because of their perceived nootropic effects.
Although there is nothing gender specific about this supplement, Red Monkey is aimed at men. Christopher Deoudes and Victor Pride have a fan base of young men and teenagers because they market themselves as alpha males and self-styled douchbags.
Christopher Deoudes has been described as creepy and as a borderline rapist but he calls himself the Good Looking Loser and his shtick is all about advising men how to pick up women which he calls The Game. He has a website where he brags about the women he has slept with and bizarrely he shows lots of pictures of his own penis.
Victor Pride is more of an old-style woman hater and most of his bile is reserved for women whom he routinely describes as feminists. According to Victor,
Western women were never discriminated against, there is no such thing as ‘rape culture’, women aren’t paid less for the same work, feminism is not about equality.
Both men come across as total jackasses. It would be hard to trust them to make a cup of coffee, let alone manufacture a nootropic supplement.
According to the product information, Red Monkey is:
The Mood Enhancement Formula That Actually Works.
The key features are all the claims usually made about the key ingredient Phenibut:
The product information explains:
Red Monkey is an all in one neuro-enhancing supplement that works by improving your memory power, concentration, motivation, mental energy, and increasing your freedom from social inhibitions.
It will probably work. Each capsule contains 250 mg of Phenibut and according to people who take Phenibut, taking this quantity a couple of times a day would be a low effective dose that may make the user feel calmer and improve mood. Taking these four times a day would probably increase sociability and help sleep quality.
The other ingredients are in unknown quantities and although they may do something, it is going to be hard to tell when compared to the overriding Phenibut content.
In fact there seems to be little point to taking Red Supplements Red Monkey when you could probably pick up Phenibut for less price and experience the same effects. We are certainly not advising you start taking Phenibut. It is addictive and withdrawal can cause numerous physical and psychological side effects but if you are going to chance taking Red Monkey, you may as well cut to the chase and just take Phenibut:
Serving size is equal to 2 capsules. Apart from the Phenibut, the individual ingredient quantities are unknown because this information is masked by the use of a proprietary blend. The information here reflects a two-capsule serving.
Red Monkey Blend (1375 mg)
Common side effects may include:
Phenibut will cause withdrawal symptoms including:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding, taking medication or if you suffer from an underlying medical or mental health issue.. The product information warns against overuse. Speak to your physician before use and discontinue if you experience side effects. Do not drive, operate machinery, or combine RED Monkey with alcohol or prescription medications. RED MONKEY SHOULD NOT BE CONSUMED MORE FREQUENTLY THAN 2 DAYS PER WEEK AND USAGE SHOULD NOT EXCEED 16 CAPSULES TOTAL PER WEEK.
There are some customer reviews posted on the Red Supplements website. Unsurprisingly they are all positive and we cannot guarantee they are genuine.
Don’t even get me started on my approach game. That night I went out and was able to strike up conversation with about 15 girls and get 3 of their numbers; with home runs on two of those in the next couple weeks. Normally my game is like half that.
I am a VIRGIN. Or should I say I WAS A VIRGIN. Last night I hooked up with a stupidly hot girl on Tinder. I’ve also been going on dates with other women. I normally completely freeze up around women. Somehow Red Monkey takes away all the anxiety and I am able to be a fun talkative person with this.
I went from sceptical to impressed! Just finished 2 days of testing over the weekend. Definitely must be taken on an empty stomach with caffeine for best effect. Effects last awhile, but peak after ~4 hours. It doesn’t feel intoxicating; more just like me on one of my best days – happy-go-lucky, social, free. One serving (4 pills) is cheaper than a beer at the bar and lasts for hours. Highly recommend, thanks GLL!
