Neurodyne Review Summary
Neurodyne is a brand new brain supplement. Unfortunately, Neurodyne is committing many of the same mistakes as earlier nootropic stacks. It simply doesn’t compare well to the best brain supplements on the market today.
We have numerous proprietary blends, some pretty pointless ingredients, and some substances known to carry side effect risks. All this combines to make a fairly poor focus and memory supplement.
We wish stacks coming out today would try to follow the best practice of today (revealing ingredient serving sizes, for example), but sadly many don’t. You can do better.
Where To Buy Neurodyne
Neurodyne is sold primarily through the official online store.
Full Neurodyne Review
Neurodyne is a very new nootropic stack. It seems to be only just making its way to market; at the time of writing, this is the only Neurodyne review published by an independent website.
So what is Neurodyne supposed to do?
Who is it designed for?
How does it try to stand out from the crowd?
The motto of Neurodyne is “welcome to your new normal”.
We can therefore assume that Neurodyne is a complete, long-term focused stack designed to raise your overall cognitive function to a constant, higher level round the clock.
We think a consistent approach is best when it comes to cognitive enhancement, so this is very exciting.
According to the official Neurodyne website, this stack delivers:
- Increased concentration
- Enhanced recall
- Improved mood
- Amplified focus
The website actually gets more specific with its promises. Apparently users can expect the following to happen when they start taking Neurodyne:
- Conversation flows easily
- Thoughts come quickly and succinctly
- Concentrations levels are high
- Confidence is at its peak
It’s great to see a manufacturer being so spceific in what they promise to users.
But the problem is that every manufacturer promises the world to potential customers. Very few actually deliver. So can Neurodyne?
Does Neurodyne really work?
Is it safe?
How does it compare with the best rated stacks today?
Find out by reading our full Neurodyne review below. We start by taking a closer look at the formula, before moving on to the likely side effects. At the end, we tell you whether or not we’d recommend this stack to anybody. Please post all questions in the comments section at the end and we’ll try to get back to you within 48 hours.
Here is the Neurodyne formula as it appears on the official website:
Straight away we see some serious red flags.
The Neurodyne formula is split up into numerous proprietary blends.
While this is better than having everything thrown together in one big prop blend, we would still much rather be given the individual ingredient serving sizes.
After all, the best products on the market today all list their individual ingredients, and they are veyr lucrative for their manufacturers.
Why can’t Neurodyne do the same?
They’re in the same market!
Many of these blend sizes are also very small, making it hard for the best ingredients to be dosed properly.
There are some completely bogus substances in the Neurodyne formula.
We also have some very worrying ingredients in here, each of which is liable to cause side effects if not used with great caution (or in one case, if used at all).
Let’s go through these problems one by one in a litle more detail.
Small Blend Sizes
One of the main problems with Neurodyne is that the individual blend sizes are far too small in most cases to accommodate for the ingredients they contain.
Look at the NEURO Smart Blend for a prime example.
This blend contains Noopept and Bacopa monnieri.
Noopept is a synthetic brain drug. We don’t think it is a good idea for 99% of people to use Noopept, since it can seriously backfire, as well as having a relatively high risk of causing side effects.
Bacopa monnieri, on the other hand, is a superb natural memory enhancer.
It has been proven in numerous clinical trials to significantly improve memory retention and recall speed in just 6-12 weeks.
The problem is that you need to take about 150mg of high quality extract, per day, for several weeks in order to truly benefit from Bacopa monnieri.
Less than 100mg, and you are not going to enjoy the full potential of this wonderful nootropic.
The 70mg total blend size obviously means we are getting much less than 100mg.
We don’t recommend Noopept use, but with a minimum dose of 50mg per day, we think it is likely that both ingredients in this blend are dosed too low to be effective.
There are plenty of ingredients in the Neurodyne formula that have absolutely no business being there.
Several substances in the Neurodyne formula do nothing for cognition. They do nothing for brain health, sleep quality, or anything that could be remotely considered a nootropic action.
Chamomile tea might be used as a relaxant, but there is no evidence that supplementing chamomile powder has an anxiolytic effect.
Lavendar may be used to aid sleep quality, but again, there is not a shred of hard scientific evidence supporting the idea that it helps with sleep if consumed orally.
We certainly don’t have any rough idea of necessary doses for these ingredients. So even if they do have potential use, we don’t know if these uses will be realized with the doses found in Neurodyne (whatever they may be).
Cordyceps is a type of fungus thought to have interesting medicinal properties.
According to the ever-zealous health food bloggers, these medicinal properties range from increasing energy levels to curing colds.
Once again, we aren’t aware of any hard, peer reviewed scientific data backing up these claims.
It seems that the people behind the Neurodyne formula have allowed themselves to be guided more by hearsay, hype, and old wives’ tales than hard science.
Dangerous Ingredients – Neurodyne Side Effects
To cap things off, Neurodyne contains more than one fairly serious side effect risk.
The most serious here is Phenibut.
Phenibut is a widely used synthetic brain drug. However, just because it is widely used does not mean it is safe.
On the contrary; we think the dangers here far outweigh the potential benefits.
Phenibut is structurally very similar to GABA, or gamma-aminobutyric acid to give it its proper name.
We’ve gone into a lot of detail about Phenibut in this article, so we wont go on too much here.
Suffices to say, Phenibut raises GABA levels in the brain, which has many similar effects to drinking alcohol. Phenibut makes you feel at once both sedated and alert; it lowers your inhibitions, makes you feel more confident, and encourages lucid thinking.
The problem is that it is highly unpredictable.
In some circumstances, these benefits can become serious hinderances: imagine suddenly feeling a little drunk in a client meeting, or during your final exams.
Sometimes, inhibitions are a good thing!
Common side effects of using Phenibut include:
Phenibut alos produces a sort of “hangover”, different to an alcohol hangover, but unpleasant still.
Another major side effect concern in neurodyne is Noopept.
Again, we have written about Noopept at great length in this article, so we wont take up too much room discussing it here.
You should just be aware that many users experience side effects while using Noopept.
Take a look at this thread on reddit to get an idea, as well as this thread on Longecity.
Since many of the benefits you get from Noopept can be achieved using a safer, natural alternative, we don’t see any reason to use Noopept.
At the very least, the fact that Noopept and Phenibut could so easily backfire on you should be seriously considered.
These two synthetic substances have their own dangers, but when consumed together, obviously the risks are amplified.
We don’t know how either of these ingredients are dosed – A SERIOUS ISSUE.
Huperzine A also presents a not insignificant danger.
Huperzine A needs to be carefully cycled if it is to be used safely.
Failure to time your cycles properly, and to take prolonged breaks from Huperzine A use, results in side effects ranging from headaches to poor memory function.
Read more about Huperzine A from our dedicated ingredient guide.
We don’t know how much Huperzine A we’re dealing with here.
Doses are usually in the micrograms, so the potential for overdosing here is very real.
Neurodyne Review Conclusion
All in all, we think the problems with this nootropic supplement massively outweigh its strengths.
It does contain some potent nootropics, but we don’t know if they are dosed high enough to be effective.
In at least one case, it is impossible for the good, scientifically proven nootropics to be dosed how they need to be for you to really benefit from them.
There are some ingredients in here too that give us cause for concern regarding health and safety risks.
When you consider all of this, and then you factor in how all proprietary blends represent poor value for money, you can only come to one conclusion.
Neurodyne is not a great nootropic supplement, regardless of what you are looking to achieve through supplementation.
