BioTest Brain Candy Review:An Uncontrollable Boost of Energy

As a fitness-related supplement that has been highly marketed for fitness junkies, BioTest Brain Candy is one of a different tier of brain supplements.

Most of the products and supplements that we review are more geared towards intellectual people, like students and teachers, but we cannot ignore the effects that this neat little shot of energy provides.

Only marketed for fitness concerned people, we decided to try out the effects of this supplement for a work environment, and whether or not taking this may be beneficial or not.

One thing that surprised us from the ingredients contained in Brain Candy was the amount of caffeine was contained in that 125 ml shot – 300mg. It’s really surprising since 300 mg is a lot of caffeine, more than most people would need, some might even say borderline dangerous, though.

In comparison, a coffee contains only 40mg, and a 250 ml shot of Red Bull contains only 80 mg.

It’s only up to imagination for you to guess what would happen with that amount of caffeine.

In the gym, may be an effective booster to get your motivation up, however, in the office, we think this might be a little too excessive.

We were surprised to see Acetyl-L-Carnatine in their base formulation, though.

This is something that many brain supplements contain as well. What it does is it increases alertness and mental energy.

This is in fact, a good thing. In large doses, it might cause side effects like depression and sleepiness, however, the moderate dosage suggests that this should not be a problem.

One more interesting ingredient found in Brain Candy is the L-Tyrosine, which works with Acetyl-L-Carnatine in the process of making your brain work better.

Not only do you have an increase in alertness and mental energy, but the addition of L-Tyrosine also allows you a good, yet non excessive, dopamine rush, adding increased motivation to the mix.

The fact that the recommended dosage is only one per day should tell you something.

With the large amount of caffeine that it contains, this is not something that you would like to be taking in excess, especially if you already start your day with a coffee, and another one later after lunch.

For a month’s supply of Brain Candy, it is only $64, if you would be willing to take one of these per day.

This might attract people just for the fact of it being relatively cheap.

 

The Results:

Here at the office, we had to cut down on our initial planned 2 month testing to a period of 2 weeks due to the unfavorable effects that we felt during our period of testing.

We felt incredibly jittery, and even though we felt pretty focused and motivated, it seemed as if the jittery feeling overrides that, making us walk to the water cooler every few minutes just because we couldn’t stay still.

A lot of us had to cut down on our coffee intake, yet that didn’t help much.

It was really a trying experience.

Summary:

We didn’t like Brain Candy all that much, and with the amount of caffeine in it being equivalent to 8 cups of coffee, you might understand why.

Interestingly, it might have even cut down on our productive time here. However, we tried our best to pull through it for the sake of including it in our review, and keeping you, the readers, informed.

The $64 pricetag for the brain enhancing powers it will allow might be a very attractive feat, however it just isn’t worth it.

This might just be a strictly-in-the-gym supplement, but even then, be wary of the amount of caffeine.
