Panaxcea Review – Worth Buying?
Panaxcea is a nootropic supplement that promises to give you “a better new you” by unleashing the power of your mind. Is Panaxcea just another over-hyped, overpriced supplement? Let’s find out in our review.
What is Panaxcea?
Panaxcea is a nutritional supplement that claims to regenerate cells to unleash the power of your mind. It makes many of the same claims as other nootropics – including better mental capacity and better focus. It also makes some more unique claims – like that it will make you “feel young again” and eliminate “years” of toxic buildup in your body.
The supplement is priced at around $40 per bottle – although the price per bottle declines when you order in bulk. So how exactly does Panaxcea work? Let’s take a closer look.
How Does Panaxcea Work?
Panaxcea claims to work using a “cellular rejuvenation formula”. That formula doesn’t actually make any specific promises. Instead, it precedes every health claim with “may”:
- Panaxcea “may” regenerate cells and your joint and muscle pain “may” disappear and “may” be replaced with optimum flexibility
- You “may” feel young again
- You “may” enjoy the relief in being able to move freely without feeling pain
- You “may” be able to eliminate years of toxic build up
I don’t know about you, but none of those claims sound very confident. If you were jumping out of a plane, would you want to bring a parachute that “may” open when you pull the cord?
Once you see the ingredients in Panaxcea, you’ll realize why the manufacturer uses the word “may” a lot. It’s because this supplement is basically just a multivitamin filled with a bunch of vitamins and nutrients.
Panaxcea is open and honest about its ingredients. A complete ingredients chart is listed on the official website, where you’ll learn that the supplement consists of a wide variety of vitamins and minerals, including all of the following:
- Vitamins: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid.
- Minerals: Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Chloride, Sodium, Potassium, Boron, Silica, Vanadium, Fluoride.
- Other Ingredients: Sea Cucumber Extract, Resveratrol, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Choline, Inositol.
None of these ingredients are found in a particular high dosage. Typically, nootropics will contain several hundred or several thousand percent of your daily recommended value of water-soluble vitamins like B vitamins. No ingredient in Panaxcea contains higher than 100% of your daily value – which is disappointingly weak for a supplement in this price range.
Ultimately, based on the ingredients listed above, Panaxcea is just a weak dose of vitamins and minerals similar to what you could find in any multivitamin.
There are just two ingredients that are linked with major nootropic benefits, including choline and inositol. There is 10mcg of choline in one capsule of Panaxcea and 12.2 mcg of Inositol.
Both of these dosages are laughably small. As Examine.com, explains, “High doses (usually in the 12-18g range) are required for any neurological effects [for Inositol].”
Meanwhile, choline is typically taken in doses of 500mg per day, with many nootropic users safely taking 1 to 2 grams per day.
Keep in mind that 10mcg (the amount of choline in Panaxcea) is just 0.01mg, which is a fraction of a fraction of the daily recommended dosage of choline.
Overall, Panaxcea has a list of common ingredients that provide a low dosage of dozens of vitamins and minerals, but nothing in a strong enough dose to have any real effect on your body.
Panaxcea is available in four different packages, including:
- 1 Bottle: $47.90 ($39.95 + $7.95 Shipping)
- 3 Bottles: $39.98 (Free Shipping)
- 6 Bottles: $189.95 (Free Shipping)
- 12 Bottles: $279.97 (Free Shipping)
The price per bottle drops to $23.33 per bottle when you order the annual package. Each bottle of Panaxcea lasts for one full month and contains 30 servings (30 capsules).
The makers of Panaxcea also ask if you want to buy extra supplements to add onto your purchase. There’s a supplement called Detoxin that claims to naturally relieve your body of impurities for $19.95.
There’s also a supplement called Actacel 4X available for $34.95 for a monthly supply. That supplement claims to support healthy aging and promote longevity.
All purchases come with a 90 day refund.
Who Makes Panaxcea?
Panaxcea is a nutritional supplement made by a company doing business under the name Panaxcea. That company lists its address as:
124 Baker Street
W1U 6TY United Kingdom
The actual name of the company behind Panaxcea is Mile High Madison Group – at least, that’s the company listed at the bottom of the official Panaxcea website. That company’s LinkedIn profile lists it as a Montreal, Quebec-based direct response agency. For what it’s worth, that company has an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau (which lists the company’s location as Delaware).
Should You Use Panaxcea as a Nootropic Brain Booster?
Panaxcea is a nootropic supplement that gives us little reason to recommend it. We’re happy that Panaxcea lists its full range of ingredients and the specific dosages. That’s something few nootropic makers do. Unfortunately, those dosages and ingredients aren’t really something to brag about: they’re just a low dosage of a wide range of vitamins and minerals.
There are nootropic ingredients in Panaxcea – including choline and inositol. But they’re included in such ludicrously small dosages (less than 1% of the recommended dose) that they’re going to have absolutely no effect on your brain.
In spite of the fact that Panaxcea is basically just a multivitamin supplement, it’s still priced towards the higher end of the nootropics market at about $1 per capsule.
For all of these reasons, Panaxcea is one nootropic that you should probably avoid.
