Neurorise is a brand new nootropic that claims to use clinically-studied ingredients to help boost your focus, energy, and mental performance. Here’s our review.
What is Neurorise?
Neurorise is a nootropic that claims to use clinically studied ingredients to help you support better brain health.
Some of the specific benefits promised by Neurorise include:
— Get More Work Done
— Study More Efficiently
— “Crank Through Mundane Tasks At Work”
— Boost Your Performance And Exercise Capacity
The supplement claims to have been created by Harvard roommates. Those roommates claim to have used the best nootropic ingredients on the market today. By combining 13 different nootropic ingredients, these roommates claim to have made one of the best nootropics money can buy.
The supplement is priced at around $80 per month, although there’s also a trial offer that signs you up for an autoship program at a slightly reduced price of $75 per month.
Is Neurorise worth the high price tag? Let’s find out how Neurorise works.
How Does Neurorise Work?
Neurorise works by sharpening your focus, improving mental performance, and boosting your energy and alertness – at least, these are the claims made by the manufacturer.
Neurorise is happy to list all of these ingredients on its official site and product packaging. It lists all 13 different ingredients included in the supplement.
But there’s one enormous problem with Neurorise: the manufacturer doesn’t list the specific amounts of any of these ingredients.
Typically, nootropic manufacturers want to prominently advertise the specific amounts of each ingredient in their supplement. Good manufacturers are proud of their list of ingredients.
The fact that Neurorise hasn’t listed any of its dosage information is problematic for three reasons:
— First, we don’t know how much of stimulants like caffeine may be included in the supplement, which can be dangerous for those with heart problems or for anyone with a sensitivity to caffeine. Caffeine is listed on the ingredients label, but the manufacturer never discloses the dosage, which is worrying.
— Second, the lack of dosage information suggests that the manufacturer isn’t proud of those dosages, which suggests that the dosages are extremely low and not worth talking about.
— Third, without dosage information, it’s impossible to compare the benefits of Neurorise with any clinical trials or scientific studies that have been performed to date. For example, we know that vinpocetine is typically taken at a daily dose between 15 and 60mg. Does Neurorise contain anywhere close to that dosage?
One of the few good things about Neurorise is that the ingredients claim to come from US-based cGMP-certified facilities. Nevertheless, the manufacturer never lists the location of those facilities or any other information about product purity.
As mentioned above, we know every single ingredient in Neurorise – we just don’t know the specific dosage information for any of these ingredients (with the exception of vitamins D3, B6, and B12).
Some of the specific claims the manufacturer makes about its “Neurofuse blend” includes:
— Phosphatidylserine improves learning by using its phospholipid mechanisms to improve cognition and decrease cognitive decline
— Choline bitartrate improves learning by raising acetylcholine levels, and acetylcholine is the neurotransmitter involved in “numerous” mental processes
— DMAE Bitartrate is a precursor to acetylcholine and can help reduce the buildup of compounds that impair brain function
If you look really closely, you’ll see that caffeine is one of the largest ingredients by weight in the Neurorise formula. It’s the second ingredient listed in the Neurofuse blend (typically, ingredients are listed in their declining order by weight).
The formula includes 903mg of product by weight, and an average cup of coffee contains about 100mg of caffeine. If you do the math, it appears that Neurorise likely has a significant amount of caffeine.
Ultimately, based on these ingredients, Neurorise appears to have a formula similar to the one you can find in any energy drink: it’s mostly B vitamins mixed with caffeine and a small range of herbal extracts and synthetic nootropics. Without dosage information, it’s difficult to assess the effects of Neurorise.
How to Buy Neurorise
Neurorise is available at a few different price points. You can order it through a free trial (which leads to an autoship program) or you can buy it by the bottle. Here’s how pricing works:
— 1 Bottle: $79.99 + $4.99 Shipping (60 Capsules / 30 Servings)
— 1 Bottle with Autoship Subscription: $74.98 per month
— 2 Bottles with Autoship Subscription: $114.98 per month
— 14 Day Free Trial: $4.99 (15 Capsules) + Automatic subscription to 1 bottle autoship program at $74.95 per month
Full details of the autoship program are clearly listed on the Neurorise sales page. That may not seem like a big deal, but many other nootropic manufacturers will actually hide details of this program deep within the terms and conditions. Or, they might list it in fine print on the sales page. Give Neurorise credit for being upfront about the terms and conditions – even if it is ludicrously expensive compared to other nootropics.
Who Makes Neurorise?
Neurorise is a California-based company that lists the following address on its contact page: Neurorise.com/contact.phpNeurorise
3007 W. Washington Blvd Suite 225
Marina Del Ray, CA 90292
You can contact Neurorise by email form on their website or by calling 855-511-1634. The company claims to be accessible Monday to Friday from 9am to 7pm EST.
The company doesn’t disclose any further information about itself on its official website. Aside from mentioning the fact that it was made by two “Harvard roommates”, we know very little about the supplement.
Ultimately, Neurorise is yet another ludicrously overpriced and underpowered nootropic supplement. The manufacturer has refused to disclose the full list of ingredient dosages, which makes it difficult to assess the effects of Neurorise compared to clinical trials and other known nootropic supplements on the market. For all of these reasons, Neurorise does not appear to be worth paying $80 for a measly 30 servings.
