SomaBiotix Prilogen

SomaBiotix Prilogen is a supplement that is supposed to help keep you alert throughout the day, so if this is going to work we would imagine that it contains some pretty powerful ingredients. Is this an accurate assessment? We take an in depth look at SomaBiotix Prilogen to find out.

SomaBiotix is a Utah based supplements company that sells two probiotic supplements both touted for digestive health, but with Prilogen seems to have ventured in the world of nootropics. This company has past form in signing up customers to hard to cancel auto ship contracts.

  • No money back guarantee

What You Need To Know About SomaBiotix Prilogen

SomaBiotix Prilogen is a nootropic supplement that the makers say will keep you alert all day, but there is no real proof or scientific evidence that it will work in the way as described. And although Prilogen contains some currently hot nootropic ingredients such as Huperzine and Bacopa, there is no way of knowing the strength of any of the named ingredients in the proprietary blend, so it is hard to gauge the possible effects or side effects. Added concerns include the company’s past form in the use of hard to cancel auto ship scams.

What Are The Side Effects Of SomaBiotix Prilogen?

Potential side effects may include many gastrointestinal side effects such as; nausea, vomiting diarrhoea, gas, increased bowel movements, and stomach cramps.

Other side effects may include; restlessness, blurred vision, cramps, urinary problems, high blood pressure, dry mouth, changes to heart rate, fatigue, and drowsiness.

How Much Does SomaBiotix Prilogen Cost?

SomaBiotix is only available direct from the official SomaBiotix website at the time of writing. It is expensive and customers are encouraged to buy bulk orders in order to get a price reduction.

  • 1 x 60ct bottle of Prilogen (30 days supply) costs $34.99 plus an additional $3.99 for shipping to US addresses.
  • 3 x bottles of Prilogen (3 months supply) costs $69.99 with free shipping included.
  • 5 x bottles of Prilogen (5 months supply) costs $99.95 including shipping.

At the time of writing there does not seem to be any issues with auto ship as was the case with earlier SomaBiotix sales policy.

Our Verdict On SomaBiotix Prilogen

We are not impressed with SomaBiotix Prilogen. This supplement does not provide adequate information for customers regarding the ingredients content, and is very unlikely to work in the way as described. Yes taking mineral and vitamin supplements can be good for long term health, but we cannot see this so called nootropic supplement making any difference to your mental performance. The nootropic formula includes some well known ingredients, but is not going to reflect any of the clinical research carried out on any of the individual components.

In addition, there is something very tricksy looking about SomaBiotix and the sister brand Nubiotix, which is run from the same address and has the same telephone number. There have been cases of auto billing scams carried out under both names and although this does not seem to be the case now, can we really trust that this company has changed?

Finally there is no money back guarantee and no customer feedback anywhere from anyone who has ever tried this supplement. This supplement does not seem popular or high profile and in our opinion, you can certainly find many better nootropic supplements on the market. Therefore, we do not recommend SomaBiotix Prilogen to our readers.

SomaBiotix Prilogen Review

SomaBiotix Prilogen falls into the nootropic category of supplements. Nootropics are becoming increasingly popular as more and more people look to support to their brain health.

Nootropics also known as smart drugs, or cognitive enhancers, are often drugs based on stimulants. However there has been research into plant based ingredients, vitamins, and amino acids which are supposed to enhance cognition, and fire up those brain chemicals and neuro receptors so that you can function more efficiently. Many nootropic supplements contain a blend of all these different types of ingredients.

SomaBiotix Prilogen Facts

  • Only on sale via the official SomaBiotix website
  • SomaBiotix and a brand called Nubiotix come from the same Utah based company
  • You are offered a price reduction for bulk orders

SomaBiotix Prilogen contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin c, zinc, manganese, and selenium, and this part of the formula looks similar to many general health supplements on the market.

The nootropic side to the supplement is provided by the Synergistic and Proprietary Formulation, a proprietary blend of ingredients. This contains herbal extracts including Bacopa Monnieri, Vinponectin, and Huperzine A, all of which have been tested in research elsewhere for their effects upon brain function and look promising.

There is fish oil (DHA oil), choline – a natural chemical found in eggs and in the human brain, which is supposed to boost the acetylcholine levels in the brain. It contains DMAE Bitartrate which is believed to build choline levels, and may help the brain manufacture acetylcholine. Check out the ingredients section of the review for a complete breakdown of the various components of this formula.

Of course, with the nootropic ingredients combined in one proprietary blend it is impossible to judge the effectiveness of the individual ingredients because quantities are not provided. But this formula does contain many of the best known nootropic names, so at first glance it does look impressive.

How to Take SomaBiotix Prilogen

Directions are not provided.

SomaBiotix seems to be fairly unknown company. The company deal only online, selling via the official website and on Amazon. A customer phone number and an address are provided.

What is odd is that SomaBiotix also trade under the name Nubiotix. The supplements on offer from both names are identical, so it doesn’t seem to make much sense to do this. In fact the Prilogen label carries both names.

SomaBiotix Prilogen Concerns:

  • No information provided for the customer such as how to take this supplement
  • There is a risk of side effects but the product information provides no warnings
  • SomaBiotix and Nubiotix are the same company and both have been accused of running auto ship scams
  • High number of customer complaints about SomaBiotix

Worryingly we have found numerous customer complaints about Nubiotix and SomaBiotix. Both names appeared to have been running an auto ship scam at different times, which has led to many customers being caught out in a hard to cancel contract where fresh supplies were delivered each month, and their credit cards billed automatically.

SomaBiotix does not appear to be still running this scam, but we advise customers to be on their guard when ordering SomaBiotix or Nubiotix supplements online.

As you can see the two addresses are identical.

What Does SomaBiotix Prilogen Claim To Do?

According to the advertising you can,

“Give your day a needed boost with the all new SomaBiotix™ Prilogen Maximum Focus Formula.”

According to the advertising on the official SomaBiotix website this supplement provides Maximum Focus! And is an All Day Alert Formula

The Amazon advert, where it is advertised under the Nubiotix name says much the same thing,

Memory, Mental Clarity Boost Supplement – Mood Enhancer – Increased Alertness

There is no clinical evidence or any explanation just how this supplement will help you with this promised increased alertness.

Does SomaBiotix Prilogen Work?

Even though the advertising says very little, we think it is unlikely to work in the way as described. Although this supplement contains some well known names in nootropics, the precise formula is not provided so you will really have no idea of just what you are taking or how much.

The vitamin and mineral profile looks reasonable enough and although there is nothing here that will provide the advertised nootropic effect, it may help support health. That said some of the ingredients in the nootropic formula are known for side effects.

In our opinion the effects from this supplement may be unpredictable.

What Are The Ingredients of SomaBiotix Prilogen?

Serving size is equal to 2 capsules.

The vitamin and mineral profile is comprehensive, with all components in adequate servings which conform to RDA.

  • Vitamin D (100IU):
  • Vitamin E (30IU):
  • Thiamin (B1) (3mg):
  • Riboflavin (B2)(1.7mg):

  • Zinc (10mg):
  • Copper (0.4mg):
  • Manganese (2mg):
  • Chromium (100 mcg):
  • Molybdenum (10mcg):
  • Potassium (50mg):

Synergistic and Proprietary Formulation (692mg): This part of the formula does not provide any ingredient quantities, and without this vital information it is hard to assess just how effective or safe any of these ingredients are likely to be.

All information here is for general interest and not specifically related to this supplement.

  • Dimethylaminoethanol (as DMAE Bitartrate): This chemical is part of a series of reactions in the body that makes acetylcholine, the principle neurotransmitter in the brain which helps the cells communicate. When combined with vitamins it may improve exercise performance, but it lacks evidence regarding the improvement of cognitive function. Source
  • L Glutamine: Glutamine is a “free amino acid” meaning that it is used by the body where needed. It is produced by the muscles and sent to organs where needed, especially in the case of injury or trauma. In supplement form it may be effective for muscle building, and it is useful for many medical conditions such as burns or wasting conditions such as HIV.
  • Bacopin (Bacopa monnieri leaf extract): Bacopin has long been used in herbal form as a treatment for anxiety. It seems to stimulate proteins in the hippocampus area of the brain as well as increase blood flow to the brain. It looks very promising but requires further investigation.
  • L Pyroglutamic acid: Derived from Glutamic acid and very prevalent in the body as it is found in many proteins. Some research suggests it may help the body produce acetyl choline, but this theory requires further proof. Source
  • Phosphatidylserine: Chemical that is manufactured in the body and an important part of your cell structure. Phosphatidylserine is taken in supplement form because it is believed to improve memory and thinking skills. Research has shown it may help dementia sufferers.
  • Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA concentrate): Derived from fish oil and an omega 3 long chain fatty acid. DHA is especially important for brain health as it is one of the most abundant fatty acids in the brain. Source
  • Inositol: Vitamin type substance found in the body, but also manufactured in the lab and taken for health reasons. Inositol may help treat panic attacks or phobias.
  • N Acetyl Tyrosine: Tyrosine is an amino acid made in body that helps the body convert fat into energy, as well as being important for mental functioning. This form (NAT) is especially good for mental functioning. Source
  • Bilberry fruit extract: High in natural chemicals called anthocyanosides which have an antioxidant effect, and often taken as a natural treatment for diarrhoea and ulcers. Can be dangerous in supplement form if taken in high quantities long term. Quantities here unknown.
  • Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (derived from Huperzia serrate whole plant): GABA is an amino-acid and a neurotransmitter in the brain that works by blocking signals to the brain. Among its many functions it is supposed to reduce anxiety.
  • Grape skin extract (Activin): Activin is a branded grape seed extract in supplement form. It may have general health benefits. Source
  • Vinpocetine: Chemical that is very close to a natural substance found in the Periwinkle flower Vinca. It appears to increase blood flow to the brain, and may be useful for treating dementia and Alzheimer’s.
  • Trace Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate: Branded mineral replenishment formula that is available to buy as a supplement in its own right. Source
  • Huperzine A (whole plant extract): This substance purified from Club Moss, a Chinese medicinal plant may help increase acetylcholine levels – the brain’s principle chemical. Some clinical testing has shown that a serving of 50mg – 200mg a day over 8 weeks may help improve memory. How much is contained in this supplement? Nobody knows. Source
  • Boron citrate: Mineral, best known in medicine as an eye wash and known as a food preservative because it kills yeast.
  • Vanadium (Vanadyl sulfate): By-product of petroleum residues that may have some medical benefits. It may help the body manage insulin levels but is known for causing gastrointestinal side effects.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For SomaBiotix Prilogen?

No there are no customer reviews for SomaBiotix Prilogen. However we found SomaBiotix did feature on a complaints website, where many customers were complaining about being sucked into a hard to cancel auto ship program.

Here is what one poor woman had to say about it.

I’ve been trying to get off their list and stop the monthly auto pays for months now and can’t. When I try to call the 800 number on the bottles, I get any number of not related businesses from the 411 information line to a shipping company, to a local UT residence. It seems they randomly forward their phones. If anyone can provide me a sure fire way of getting off their mailing list and to stop the auto pays I would be forever grateful!

Many other people were having similar problems. Source

Does SomaBiotix Prilogen Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

There is no money back guarantee. The company offer a standard looking returns policy which only applies to unopened products. Even this is complicated. Here’s what it says in the Ts and Cs:
