Anandaful Health THINK Review Summary
Our last review focused on a supplement which uses exactly the same formula as several other products on Amazon. And, much to our horror, Anandaful Health’s THINK is yet another one! The number of supplements sold on Amazon which use identical formulas (down to the microgram) are growing seemingly by the day. Anandaful Health THINK is just the latest in a long and expanding list.
Somewhere, a supplement manufacturer is offering this pre-made formula up for very little cost. The formula is weak, under-dosed, and probably very cheap to make. Individuals are just designing a label, sending it to said manufacturer, and letting Amazon take care of order fulfillment. Margins are low in this game, but so are risks and investments. The only loser is you, the customer.
Where To Buy Anandaful Health THINK
These ‘off-the-rack’ supplements are almost always sold exclusively through Amazon. This is because the “manufacturers” outsource as much of the operation as possible. If you aren’t willing to pay for a unique blend, then you’re probably not willing to handle delivery or processing.
Full Anandaful Health THINK Review
THINK is a brand new nootropic stack made by Anandaful Health. It is sold as a “Brain Health Dietary Supplement”.
We’ve never heard of this stuff before. It seems to have just come onto the market.
Try as we might, we can’t find a working official website for Anandaful Health. There is a website listed on the back of the bottle, but at the time of writing the page simply doesn’t load. As far as we can tell, THINK is currently only being sold through Amazon.
When we find a product only being sold through Amazon, we usually know that we have a poor quality stack on our hands.
When we can’t even find a working website, we know to expect the worst.
Even the nootropics manufacturers who use a ‘cookie cutter’, pre-made, low quality formula and outsource delivery to Amazon usually spend the $50 it takes to make a nice looking, working website.
Anandaful Health clearly haven’t even wanted to take the risk with $50. This doesn’t bode well for the quality of the supplement.
But we can’t just write Anandaful Health THINK off like that.
What does this supplement claim to do?
According to the bottle, THINK delivers the classic trio of enhanced “memory, focus and clarity”.
Does it really? There’s only one way to find out. Let’s take a look at the formula, customer reviews, and see if Anandaful Health THINK can really give you better memory, better focus, and better clarity of thought.
Anandaful Health THINK Formula
Here is the Anandaful Health THINK formula. We took this shot from the Amazon merchant page as this is the only semi-reliable source of information on the product:
To some of you, this formula might seem familiar.
If you’ve spent any time browsing nootropic supplements on Amazon, or indeed reading through our product reviews, then it will be familiar.
This is the exact formula used by a growing number of nootropics listed on Amazon.
And by exact, we mean it is absolutely identical; the ingredients, the doses, their extract strengths, even the label is the same in most cases.
All that is different is the label itself.
What’s going on here? Why are there so many seemingly different supplements using absolutely identical formulas?
Is this just because the formula is so good that other people will naturally replicate it?
The formula itself is weak, under-dosed, and full of useless ingredients. It offers little value for money, and is unlikely to deliver even a mild increase in cognitive function.
So what is it?
Why So Many Duplicate Formulas On Amazon?
The scale of the problem is already quite worrying, and it just seems likely to grow bigger every month.
We have written about the “Amazon Method” at great length in this article. In it you will find a list of supplements we have reviewed which all share the same formula. We advise you to read it so you can avoid falling foul of these scams in the future.
There are no doubt many more currently being sold on Amazon, eBay, and other third party merchant sites than we have listed in our article.
But many of you wont have time to read this full article, so here’s a brief explanation of what is going on and why it is an issue.
A supplement manufacturer is offering a very good rate on capsules with the formula used in all of these supplements. People are simply going to this manufacturer, ordering a set amount of units up front, and providing the manufacturer with their own, custom-made, individual branding.
Order fulfillment is then outsourced to Amazon (for a fee), and more units are produced as orders come in.
This means that the person behind the brand on the bottle has no incentive to provide a good service, no incentive to look after customers, and no incentive to respond to complaints.
It means the formula is of low enough quality to be offered up, without branding, at a low cost, by a wholesaler to anybody who will pay the money.
Sound like a good deal?
We’ve explained why this private label supplement explosion is bad news for customers in greater detail in the cited article, so if you are interested in learning more please check it out.
Is The THINK Formula Any Good?
The short answer to this question is: no, no it is not.
We have covered this same formula so many times now that we don’t need to go into great detail here. We’ve already explained why this formula offers very little value to customers.
It is highly unlikely to deliver on any of the promises made on the bottle.
While it contains some good ingredients, their doses are too low to have any significant effect on memory, focus, or clarity.
For instance, THINK contains Bacopa monnieri. We have written extensively about Bacopa’s ability to improve long-term memory function.
However, when dealing with a weak extract like that found in THINK, 100mg is well short of the mark.
For a 20% bacoside extract, we would want to see at least 200mg, and ideally more. The best stacks use between 150mg and 200mg, but they will usually use a higher quality extract; 40% or more in some cases.
Perhaps the biggest problem is the heavy reliance on St. John’s Wort; a substance which is, in our opinion, completely ineffective.
Some “internet experts” claim that St. John’s Wort can pretty much cure depression. Many supplement manufacturers claim that it can significantly reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
However, we have never seen any robust, scientific evidence that this stuff actually reduces anxiety.
Yet St. John’s Wort commands a great deal of space in this formula.
There’s no effective, side-effect free cholinergic, there’s no NGF-promoter, not enough Ginkgo biloba, the Huperzine A will cause problems if not cycled properly, which will in turn disrupt other ingredients; in short, this is a very weak, thin, imbalanced formula.
Anandaful Health THINK Review Conclusion
We are growing tired of these stacks popping up on Amazon.
As explained above, they all use the same formula. The products are all probably made in exactly the same place. Brands, or in most cases probably individuals, are buying rights to a cheap, bottom-of-the-barrel, ‘cookie cutter’ formula which the manufacturer probably sells to get rid of left-over ingredients.
They just apply their custom branding afterwards, and Amazon takes care of orders.
There’s no major investment, and no interest in longevity. Anandaful Health don’t even have a working website.
As such, the only person who has something to lose is the customer.
The formula itself is very low quality.
If you’re looking for a powerful, reliable, premium supplement to help you with your memory, focus, learning, and mental stamina, look elsewhere.
