Alpha Brain Review: Amazingly Potent Brain Enhancer – In Theory

We’re pretty certain that anyone that has been researching brain enhancement supplements for a while now has heard of the industry giant Alpha Brain.

Onnit’s Alpha Brain has become one of the most successful brain enhancers, or nootropic, in the past few years, and just looking through their clean, detailed website, you’re able to gauge why they’ve become so.

They’ve garnered quite a large following, and have recently widened their product range, now offering several fitness-related products, such as kettlebells and other various other bodybuilding related supplements.

Despite this, we here at always seem to wonder how well a brain enhancer can perform in relation to others.

It becomes seemingly more apparent that Onnit’s approach to Alpha Brain involves them not really being specialized in neuroscience and neurological medicine.

As the saying goes, “Jack of all trades, master of none.” This is one of the reasons why we’ve held off reviewing Alpha Brain for the past few weeks, as we did some preliminary research beforehand.

However, completely judging a product from the standpoint of its company doesn’t do it any justice. There’s a reason why Alpha Brain is as popular and as widely accepted as it is, and we were intrigued by that.

Admittedly, a lot of us here have tried Alpha Brain at some point in the past already.

We do have to give Onnit props for their clean and detailed website, though, as again, the process to find Alpha Brain’s supplement facts wasn’t really difficult. As opposed to many other pharmaceutical companies’ websites, Alpha Brain’s was out there, easily accessible.

Alpha Brain’s formula excels. While we don’t completely agree with their decision to hide their ingredients under a proprietary blend – here called Onnit Focus/Fuel/Flow Blend – there’s nothing bad we can say about their ingredients. Having only included 12 ingredients, Onnit’s Alpha Brain is quite potent.

Included in their repertoire were Alpha GPC, a higher quality choline that is more readily accepted by the body, which is leagues up from the Choline Bitartrate that most other pharmaceutical companies have come to apply in their formulas.

Additionally, Oat Straw was also being utilized in their formula, which we only find in the highest quality brain enhancers. Pros to Onnit.

We did find that they were using Huperzia Serrata, though, which is a lower grade than Huperzine A, used by some. Besides that, Alpha Brain checked green ticks across the book.

A 30-count bottle of Alpha Brain costs $34.95, and although that might seem like a relatively small number, please note that with Alpha Brain’s recommended dosage of 2 capsules a day, you’ll run out by the middle of the month.

The monthly cost of Alpha Brain actually costs closer to   $70 for two bottles of Alpha Brain. However, they do have a Two Smart Pack that you can order that will only run you $59.41. We’re going to look at whether this is better value than our best-rated product Nitrovit.

The Results:

When we began taking Alpha Brain, we were quite surprised by the very immediate effects that we experienced.

The effects were great overall for the first few days, as we were able to achieve leagues in terms of focus and concentration, as well as a higher sense of overall clarity.

These effects were in no way bad, either. Alpha Brain is popular for this reason, allowing enhanced cognitive function in potently subtle ways.

However, our fascination with Alpha Brain was short-lived. Unfortunately, the effects did not persist for long, possibly because our bodies were probably building tolerance to Alpha Brain faster than we expected.

There were also minor effects in memory and overall reduction of ADD symptoms. However, it seemed that this was not as apparent as some of the other brain enhancers that we’ve tried before.

Whilst there were some good effects, like being able to see colors more vividly, and some of us for the first time, actually experiencing vivid dreams, the overall long-term benefits of the brain were not as pronounced.

This was of course fixed by upping the dosage to 3 capsules a day, but of course, this means buying another 30 count bottle per month.


It seems like the great Alpha Brain is not so great after all.

While it does boast an incredibly clean and detailed website, and a formula that many other pharmaceutical companies can only dream of having – it seems that they do fall short. They can’t really walk the walk. We’re not saying that Alpha Brain is bad – it is in NO WAY bad.

However, when compared to some of the higher tiered brain enhancers that we’ve tried such as Biohack Pure, NITROvit, and Sharp Mind, Alpha Brain had the short straw of the batch.

It still does boast an attractive price tag, though. Even despite needing to have two 30-count bottles. If you’re looking for a short- to mid-term solution, look to Alpha Brain. Otherwise, you might want to look elsewhere.
