Lucidal Review: A Loaded Mix of Nootropic and Multivitamins

Lucidal, formulated and developed by Dr. Larry McCleary, as suggested on their website, is thoroughly available for purchase on the doctor’s website, the family’s website, and on a variety of other sites dedicated to memory loss or nootropics. Dr. McCleary, board certified neurosurgeon, boldly boasts his product as being the best out there in the market. Is it, though? Through much research, we weren’t able to find the ingredients to his Lucidal, we only found out when we were looking at the actual bottle after it came through the mail. It seems as if everything is being kept under secret.

Lucidal is marketed as a memory loss pill, judging from how Dr. McCleary talks about it, and it’s described as a pill that helps counter memory loss, while providing focus. To this, Dr. McCleary also provides a FAQ section to bat away hesitant doubts.

However, what we did find in the ingredients surprised us. Rather, what was more surprising is the amount of ingredients in Lucidal. We were surprised to find a blend of multivitamins in the capsule. Ingredients like Vitamin C, D3, E, B6, B12, and others such as Zinc, Magnesium, and Potassium. Don’t get us wrong, these are nutrients that will prove very beneficial to the body, and is recommended to be taken, we just feel that it seems as if it isn’t a brain enhancing pill, but rather a multivitamin with brain enhancing properties.

Don’t get us wrong, there are some really good ingredients in this pill. One for example, is Huperzine A, which aids in memory and gives you vivid dreams. It’s very interesting to see this ingredient here since it’s a premium and expensive ingredient that most other pharmaceutical companies opt out of their pill for the cheaper Huperzia Serrata. Another example would be Vincpocetine, which only the best brain enhancing supplements contain. Just for comparison, NITROvit contains this as well.

So we do know that Dr. McCleary is good in that his forumula for Lucidol tries to encompass premium, quality ingredients. However, as we’ve mentioned earlier, we were surprised by the amount of ingredients in Lucidal. Just looking at the Supplement Facts label, there were already around 20 ingredients that were only mainly multivitamins, not related to brain enhancement at all. Add that there are also around 25 ingredients relating to the brain enhancing supplements mixed in a ‘proprietary mixture’. We’re not saying that having that many ingredients is a bad thing – in fact, it’s good to cover all your bases. However, it does make us wonder how much potency there is in each individual ingredient as a result of this.

Each bottle contains 30 pills, however, it is suggested to take 3 capsules a day, amounting to a monthly damage of $75, which might deter most people due to the price. Additionally, having to taking 3 capsules a day seems to be excessive if you’ll have to keep a constant reminder to take your capsules.

The Results:

After 2 months of testing, we did sort of feel enhanced brain effects such as increased memory recall and focus. When mentioned “sort of feel,” we mean that we weren’t exactly sure whether or not these effects were coming from the brain enhancing ingredients, or the multivitamins contained in them. We’ll give due respect where it’s earned, though: it does work. Although its effects were not as great as the other supplements we’ve tried, it did get the job done.

From the emails we’ve received from our viewers, some loved it, while some loathed it. One reader commented that Lucidal increased her focus at work and even socially, however, another one reported only a slight marginal increase.

Summary:

Dr. McCleary is a good man, and we intend to get in touch with him for an interview in the future, too! It seems as if his proprietary blend for Lucidal is a good one, and that it does work where it needs to. However, what deterred us was the amount of other ingredients that were included in their capsule. For the price of $75 a month, we expected a product that had higher potencies of nootropic ingredients. In a way, Lucidal seems to cover all the bases, though. We’ll give it credit for that. If you aren’t already taking a Multivitamin supplement, this might just be the one for you. For us, though, we don’t like the fact that we’d have to take 3 capsules a day, something ADHD users might also find a chore. If you’re looking for a serious memory loss supplement or nootropic, though, we suggest you look elsewhere.
