Brain Quicken

What is BrainQuicken? Let’s review it…

You may have heard of Tim Ferriss, the entrepreneur and author of the best-selling book Four Hour Work Week, but what you may not know is that BrainQuicken was the product that his business was built around and the muse his book was written on.

He launched BrainQuicken in 2001, but no longer owns it as he sold it in 2010 in pursuit of other goals (you can read about how and why he sold the business here).

Spring of Life now owns BrainQuicken.

Since Ferriss sold it to them, the formula has changed a few times, and some users feel that it’s not as good as it once was.

We did some investigating to see if it lived up to the hype.

BrainQuicken Effects

BrainQuicken promises to end brain fog and fatigue, provide clarity of thought, increase processing speed, and deal with stress and sleep problems. It’s designed with athletes in mind as well, and claims to be able to increase their reaction timing by producing faster neural firing and to provide increased focus and endurance.

According to the product description, it’s used by world champion professional and Olympic athletes. Unfortunately, no names or testimonials are given, which we’d really like to see. Another unproven claim is that it’s ‘backed by years of clinical research and proven, real world testing and experience’. No links or further information was provided on this, so we have to take their word for it.

Ingredients – What’s in BrainQuicken?

Pantothenic Acid (Calcium Pantothenate) 20mg

Niacinamide 10mg

Vitamin B6 12.5mg

Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) 500mcg

Folic Acid 200mcg

Proprietary Cognamine TM:


Choline Sinensis

Choline Bitartrate



Salix Alba



2-Dimethylaminoethanol, Pyridoxine HCL

Salisburia Adiantifolia



Paullinia  405mg

Alpha Lipoic Acid 15mg

The proprietary blend is listed as 805mg in total, and Paullinia (a fancy name for guarana) is 405mg of that. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a further 15mg, which leaves 385mg an ambiguous mixture of the remaining ingredients. 

Other ingredients include magnesium stearate, silica and gelatin, which makes BrainQuicken unsuitable for vegetarians.


Dosage Amount

One serving of BrainQuicken is 2-4 capsules, which can be taken twice daily with meals (a break of at least 8 hours between servings is required).

It’s recommended to take two days off per week, so a Monday-Friday course would be ideal.

According to Spring of Life, BrainQuicken is fast-acting and takes effect within 30 minutes of ingestion.

BrainQuicken Reviews

BrainQuicken has received extremely positive reviews on, where users said it gave them ‘unbelievable focus all day long’ and called it ‘great for concentration’.

It received a warm reception on Amazon, too.

There, customers reported feeling ‘alert without jitter’, and being able to ‘respond better without pausing to think’.

One user on said that it made him feel ‘mentally energized and physically capable of anything’. Clearly, there are some very happy customers out there who find Brain Quicken effective.

Where to buy BrainQuicken

BrainQuicken costs $49.95 for 90 capsules directly from Spring of Life. If you’re looking to use it long-term, they offer a monthly subscription at a discounted rate, which is worth taking advantage of. There’s a 60 day money back guarantee, so you can always get a refund if you’re not satisfied.

BrainQuicken was previously sold on, but for some reason, they no longer carry it. It’s also currently unavailable on Amazon, too. For now, it seems that it’s only available from Spring of Life.

BrainQuicken Summary

We have a few reservations about BrainQuicken, it has an established customer base who seem to find that it works for them, which is good to know.

If we could see the exact dosages of ingredients in the proprietary blend, with some evidence to back up their claims of clinical research and world-class athlete customers, we’d be able to give it a better score.
