The Formula In Brain Stack
I have to give top marks to the Maven Labs here, they are one of a very small number of manufacturers who actually disclose the full formula including just how much of each ingredient is in every serving…
Each serving includes:
- Alpha GPC 175mg
- Huperzine-A 150mcg
- Hericium Erinaceues 300mg
- L-Theanine 120mg
- Caffeine 60mg
- Bacopa 200mg
- Pterostilbene 50mg
- Mucuna Pruriens 200mg
- Gaba 200mg
- Vitamin B6 15mg
- Vitamin B12 100mcg
- Acetyl-L-Carnitine 300mg
It’s a bit hit and miss here with no definite instructions from the makers..They suggest that you start off at 1 capsule in the morning…. if you are ok with it you can increase gradually to a maximum serving of 3-4 capsules ( do not exceed 8 in any 24 hr period)
They do suggest that you also take 2 days off per week to stop the body becoming too used to it..
Any Reported Side Effects
To date I have found no adverse reports of any side effects…, that said, this product does contain a stimulant in the form of caffeine.. it could potentially cause the jitters and sleeplessness in some users especially if you have a caffeine intolerance.. if you can drink coffee with no issues, then you should be fine with Brain Stack
Where To Buy Brain Stack
The official website seems to be the best place to buy.. it was at some point listed on Amazon too, but seems to have been taken off their listings..
You can buy a two week supply for $34.95 plus shipping or you can save $5 by buying 2 bottles at once and getting a full months supply.. ( calculated at 2 tabs a day) You can also sign up to a monthly auto ship order for just $27.50 per bottle plus shipping.
Any Cash Back Guarantees
The makers offer a 60 day cash back guarantee.. there are a few conditions however…
The guarantee applies initially to the first 32 pills ( one bottle) that you order.. you can at any time within 60 days of purchase return this first bottle either empty or part used for a refund… the makers will ask you a few questions about your experience with the product in return for the refund..
for subsequent orders or amounts over the initial 32 pills they will only refund for unopened packs that are returned within the 60 days..
I must say that the makers have a reasonable ingredient profile….. I am not too convinced about the inclusion of caffeine as this does often cause that stimulant type ‘buzz’’ that could easily be mistaken for that feeling that the product is working… many of the other ingredients do appear in my top rated products… that said it is rather light on the amounts of Hericium Erinaceus and Pterostilbene per serving when compared to Mind Lab Pro for instance..
I actually prefer Citicoline to Alpha GPC.. it’s proven to be more effective and it has the clinical backing of human testing, where as Alpha GPC has only animal testing to back up its claims..
It’s not particularly great value either… when you consider that there are only 32 tablets per bottle, at maximum dose ( 4 tabs per day) thats only enough for 8 days …. that means that you have to buy 3 bottles to get anywhere near a months supply. (24 days)…. this takes the cost up to $104.85 for a months supply – Way over priced…
