Azoth Super Strength Nootropic Review
Claiming To be The Strongest Nootropic On The Market, But Does Azoth Live Up To Its Claims?
A recent search online, looking for new nootropic supplements uncovered a new nootropic made by Boston based Azoth LLC…
Aptly called Azoth, its makers make some big claims about its power and effectiveness.. claiming to be between 5 and 10 times stronger than its nearest competitors, I decided to have a good, in-depth look at this product to determine if it really lives up to its claims.
Azoth promises that its formula will help improve motivation, confidence and productivity without the use of caffeine that can so often cause those well documented ‘energy crashes’.. Claiming to help reduce the effects of stress and anxiety, helping you to think more clearly, Azoth also claims to reduce the effects of caffeine addiction (that can be caused by relying on strong coffee as a pick me up)
Whats In Azoth
The makers do fully disclose the ingredients, a great change from the all too common proprietary blend (where you know what the ingredients are, but not how much of each is actually in each serving)
Each Serving Contains
- Ashwagandha 500mg
- L-Tyrosine 500mg
- Phosphatidylserine 500mg
- Sulbutiamine 500mg
- Alpha GPC 300mg

- Hordenine HCL 50mg
- Bioperine 10mg
- Huperzine A 100mcg
How To Take Azoth
Take 2-3 capsules daily with a light fatty meal
As a newish product, there are no independent user reviews out there at the moment, as some emerge, I will post details here
Reported Side Effects
There are no reports of anything adverse coming through from users of Azoth…
That said, some of the ingredients found in the formula do have a reputation for causing side effects in some users…
One example is Ashwagandha.. there is no doubting its benefits, but it has been linked to a rather unpleasant burning and redness/itching of the penis in isolated cases..
Huperzine A is another one with some worrying links to side effects… It has been found to cause nausea, sweating, vomiting, restlessness, muscle twitching, cramps, excessive saliva, slowed heart rate and increase blood pressure….
The dosage found in Azoth is also at the upper end of the safe recommended daily dose.. if you take 3 capsules per day, it actually exceeds the doses recommended on official sites such as webMD.
Hordenine is another ingredient with links to nasty side effects… it’s actually very similar to another ingredient called Bitter Orange which can cause high blood pressure, increased heart rate and even kidney stones.
Please Note – Hordenine actually has stimulant type properties, which in my opinion makes a mockery of the makers claim to be caffeine free – yes they do not use actual caffeine, but Hordenine has similar stimulant affects… (source WebMD) –
Sulbutiamine is another ingredient that has been linked to headaches. sleeping issues and nausea.. it’s recommended not to take for more than 4 weeks.
Where To Buy Azoth
Amazon appears to be the largest supplier on-line… A bottle containing just 45 capsules (15 days supply at maximum dose will costs you $34.99) – this works out at $69.98 for a months supply.
Any Cash Back Guarantee
There does not appear to be any guarantees provided
There are some proven nootropic ingredients in Azoth and there is very chance that it might provide some benefits… I do however have a real concern about some of the ingredients and their potential for side effects mentioned above…..
Personally I would avoid any product that contains Ashwagandha, Huperzine, Sulbutiamine and Hordenine.. the risks to your health (however unlikely) are too much and I for one would avoid it at all costs….
Not For Me – However Good A Product Might Possibly Be – I Will NEVER Recommend Products That Carry Any Potential For Health Risks
