ZenNutri LLC does not have an official product website. Instead, this company has a couple of nootropic supplements on sale via Amazon and eBay.
ZenNutri Focus Prime is only on sale via Amazon or eBay, and it is obvious that ZenNutri is little more than a fancy name than it is an established supplement company. The supplement is very similar to many nootropics on sale at Amazon and although it may have a slight effect on some people, results are not guaranteed and will largely depend upon your own physical make up. Focus Prime contains St John’s Wort which is very well known for causing side effects and it will cause interactions with prescription medication. You will need to check this out before you buy especially as this supplement does not come with a guarantee.
Potential side effects may include headaches, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, anxiety, heart palpitations, jitteriness, dizziness, confusion, sensitivity to sunlight, risk of burns to skin, increased risk of blood thinning, reduction of fertility levels, increased risk of seizures, fishy body odour, and restlessness.
You should ask your doctor before using if you are taking prescription medication because of the high risks of interactions caused by St John’s Wort.
You should avoid this supplement if you are trying to conceive because Gingko can adversely affect fertility levels and worryingly, DMAE may cause birth defects if taken during pregnancy.
We have concerns about ZenNutri Focus Prime. Despite the fact that this supplement is probably safe for most people, there is a long list of potential side effects that are actually very serious including the risk of prescription drug interactions and birth defects. These could be life changing in some circumstances, and we feel that a warning should have been made clearer in the advertising.
The supplement itself is not especially effective. It does contain some well-known ingredients but as many of these are in insufficient quantities, you may not notice much. The temptation will be to take the recommended 2 capsule serving size which will lead to a stronger serving (500mg) of St John’s Wort. Not everyone is sensitive to St Johns Wort but many people are, and many of the reported side effects seem to originate from this one ingredient.
In our opinion, you would do better in buying a nootropic with fewer ingredients from a specialist company that can answer questions and give you your money back if things go wrong. The problem is that although ZenNutri Focus Prime is quite cheap and it’s easily available, it seems a bit foolhardy to risk your health on an unknown product like this.
Overall, this supplement is just not good enough to approve. We do not recommend ZenNutri Focus Prime to the Watchdog readers.

ZenNutri Focus Prime is a nootropic supplement, based on herbal ingredients and some well known natural chemicals with a brain-boosting effect. It looks very similar to countless other supplements on the market which are sold on Amazon.
The principle ingredient is St John’s Wort which is often taken to combat depression. Other plant extracts include Bacopa Monnieri, Gingko Biloba and Huperzine A, all of which have undergone clinical testing elsewhere and may have nootropic benefits.
In addition to the herbal extracts, Focus Prime contains amino acids Glutamine and L Carnitine, Phosphatidylserine, and DMAE Bitartrate, a substance derived from plants. All ingredient quantities are provided, which is good, and quantities are in line with many other supplements on the market, although not necessarily in line with clinical research. Check out the ingredients tab for more information.
Overall, ZenNutri Focus Prime looks to be a fairly standard nootropic very similar to many other supplements on the market.
ZenNutri LLC does not have a product website, instead selling their range of 3 supplements via Amazon and eBay. Other ZenNutri supplements are Calm Prime and Sleep Prime, and you are advised that you can take them all in combination at different times of the day.
We found that ZenNutri LLC is based in Brooklyn, in what we imagine to be office premises above a fast food outlet, although it could be a private address.
The product advertising makes all the usual claims and tells you what you want to hear.
It asks, “tired of being unfocused, distracted and unproductive? Having trouble concentrating? Keep forgetting things? Feeling anxious and under pressure?”
According to the advertising, Focus Prime will help you in the following ways.
Overall, we think that this formula may have a slight effect upon some customers but results could be unpredictable depending on your own physical make up. In addition, side effects could be an issue and many of the ingredients are in much smaller amounts than used in research so may be ineffective.
St John’s Wort, for example, is a plant extract that has been used for thousands of years as an antidepressant so there must be something to it! Some research has shown that it can be just as effective for mild depression as prescription drugs such as Prozac. Other research found it was no better than a placebo, although many people are also on Prozac and it seems that in many cases this does not work either!
That said, Focus Prime is not advertised primarily as an antidepressant. It is supposed to boost alertness and mental focus. Some of the ingredients seem effective for this purpose.
Gingko Biloba may improve blood circulation in the brain, Phosphatidylserine is a natural chemical made in the body which plays a role in the repair and the maintenance of all the cells. It may be effective as a way to slow age-related cognitive decline and may help improve mood if you take 300mg a day long term. This supplement only contains 125mg per capsule, so you would need to take it twice a day to get near this figure. However, do this and you may find that the other ingredients cause side effects.
The other ingredients have all undergone clinical testing elsewhere, and yes, there have been positive benefits noted. However, in most cases serving sizes here are below the clinical dosage and do not account for the effects of the other ingredients.
Each capsule is equal to one serving. You are advised to take 1 -2 servings each day.
Focus Prime may cause side effects and some customers have mentioned these, including:
Many of these are common side effects to St John’s Wort. Other side effects to St John’s Wort include:
There is a warning on the bottle about the possible side effects of St John’s Wort. Effects include:

Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant, breast feeding or trying to conceive. DMAE may cause birth defects if used in the early stages of pregnancy. Check with your doctor before using if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication. St. John’s Wort is known for reacting with many prescription drugs and could be extremely dangerous.
There are over 700 customer reviews on Amazon but according to our scam software, many of these are likely to be fake. That said there are genuine positive comments too.
I’ve found that since taking this, my memory and focus has improved so much that I’m able to enjoy daily tasks more than I used to. I’m getting things done more quickly and with more energy. I love that these are all natural too.
I’ve been using these for about three weeks and I have to say that they definitely do something. I didn’t notice anything till a couple of days to a week in but then I noticed that I was alert, aware and awake. Not a jittery or on the go type of feeling but a feeling of maybe having that cup of coffee you need at that very moment (when the caffeine in the coffee actually works for you) with the feeling of you being on your A game….
Some customers noticed no improvements,
Didn’t see any improvements in memory or focus. Took them while studying for CPA exam
A few customers mentioned side effects,
Gave me nothing but anxiety and heart palpitations. Wish I could return it for a refund.
