Brainfire – Quality Product Or Marketing Scam?
Imagine if you could boost your brain power, increase your memory, reaction times, recall and focus….
Just some of the claims made by the makers of Brainfire… a natural nootropic that has been getting a fair bit of media attention over the past few months….
They promise to help all users to think faster, be able to process and work quicker, and improve moods and general brain health…
But does Brainfire really work, or is it glorified marketing hype?? I got hold of some, tried it and had a really good, in depth look..
The Formula in Brainfire
This is where things get confusing really quickly…. on the official website they list ingredients such as Bacopa, Gingko Biloba, St Johns Wort, and Phosphatidylserine
When I got hold of the bottle, the formula on the label was completely different (see pic below)… it lists ingredients as follows:
- Vitamin B1 200mcg
- Vitamin B2 200mcg
- Vitamin B3 200mcg
- Vitamin B6 200mcg
- Vitamin B9 200mcg
- Creatine 800mg
- AlphaSize (Alpha Glceryl phosphoryl Choline) 100mg
- Serinaid (Phosphatidyserine) 100mg
Directions For Use
Take 2 capsules daily with water
Finding a genuine users review was almost impossible… aside from one really bad video, i could find nothing of any credibility…. I came across some articles from Discovery magazine and Forbes…
The Discovery magazine used what i discovered to be a bogus interview with Professor Stephen Hawking to promote the pill ( It turns out that Mr Hawking has never ever been interviewed by Discovery Magazine and that the website showing the “interview” was a bogus illegal copy of Discovery magazines official website..)
My own findings aren’t any better… I took 2 Brainfire tablets daily for 2 weeks… absolutely nothing.. no energy buzz…. no improvements in wakefullness, memory or focus…
What A Waste Of Time And Money…
Reported Side Effects
Niacin ( Vitamin B1) has been linked to some side effects that can include:
- Redness / flushing of the skin,
- Rashes and stomach issues
Where To Buy
You can buy direct from the makers for around $54 plus shipping for a months supply… I have not found it listed anywhere else ( amazon, eBay, GNC etc)
They do offer a 30 day cash back guarantee.. the only problem with this is that if you read the small print you will see that it only applies to unopened bottles… so if you try it and it doesn’t work you will NOT get your money back.. whats more you have to pay for the shipping to return which will cost you more money ( which is not covered by the guarantee)
OK.. Where do I start?….. The blatant marketing lies (sorry – hype), the dodgy reviews, videos and bogus media articles, plus the fact that they don’t even tell you the formula correctly on the website leaves me with one option..
GIVE THIS ONE A WIDE BERTH – AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
I suggest that if you are serious about boosting your brain health and cognitive function that you check out my top nootropics page… these products have solid clinical evidence behind them that assures you of their formula, effectiveness, and safety, plus most of them give a good solid cash back guarantee that applies to opened bottles too.
