New Health Neuro Matrix Review Summary
This stack is very hit and miss. Every positive we see seems to have a drawback, leaving the formula as a whole very mediocre. We get plenty of Bacopa monnieri in each serving, yet we aren’t told if it is a 50% extract, a 20% extract, or a whole plant powder – that would make a huge difference to the results. We get some Lion’s Mane Mushroom, but the dose is about 10% of what we would want to see in a premium nootropic. We could go on, but you get the idea.
Overall, this isn’t a terrible brain supplement. It isn’t a scam, and it isn’t a complete rip-off. But it really doesn’t offer good value for money at all. It doesn’t represent a good choice for someone wanting maximum results, and it is nowhere near a market-leading nootropic.
Where To Buy New Health Neuro Matrix
As far as we know Neuro Matrix is sold through Amazon and only through Amazon.
Full New Health Neuro Matrix Review
Neuro Matrix is a natural nootropic stack from a company called New Health. They make quite a wide range of products which they sell through their Amazon store. At the time of writing we see hair growth stacks, energy powders, thyroid support supplements, and obviously, Neuro Matrix; their nootropic.
What is Neuro Matrix supposed to do?
Who is it designed for specifically?
The bottle tells us that Neuro Matrix is designed to deliver enhancements in focus, clarity and memory.
Of course, every brain supplement claims to deliver these benefits, but almost none of them do. A small percentage of nootropics actually improve focus, clarity, mood and memory. Of those, a small number also represent good value for money and can be used safely long-term.
So where does New Health Neuro Matrix fall?
Is it an effective brain booster or just another cheap supplement using empty words to make money?
Is it safe? What kind of side effects can you expect?
How does it compare to other, similar supplements on the market right now?
Find out by reading our full review below. As we do with every product appraisal, we kick off by examining the formula. We see if the ingredients and the doses are supported by the latest scientific literature (or our own experience). We take a look at the main side effect risks. At the end, we’ll tell you whether or not we’d recommend this stack to you.
New Health Neuro Matrix Formula
Let’s check out the New Health Neuro Matrix formula:
This is a formula of two halves – one good, one bad.
It seems like every time we identify a strength here, it comes with a caveat.
Some ingredients are great, but their purity and strength is questionable.
Some are benchmarks for the industry, but they are dosed so low that it is basically pointless to even include them.
Others do nothing, while others still create unique side effect problems.
All in all, we don’t think New Health Neuro Matrix is a great choice for a daily nootropic stack. Not only does it represent poor value for money, but it will not deliver the kind fo results we have come to expect from contemporary nootropics.
What We Like
Although we wouldn’t recommend New Health Neuro Matrix to our readers, there are some things that we like about this stack.
It contains some substances that can improve brain functionality over the long-term. While these ingredients might not have much in the way of immediate, acute effects, they can help keep your brain functioning properly for years to come.
For instance, each daily serving of New Health Neuro Matrix gives us a nice big dose of Phosphatidylserine.
Phosphatidylserine is a phosholipid that is incredibly important for the formation of new brain cell membranes.
Supplementing with phosphatidylserine will therefore not have an immediate or dramamtic impact on your cognitive function, but it will ensure that your brain has the raw materials it need to maintain itself properly over the course of your life.
The 100mg we are given by Neuro Matrix is more than enough to ensure good cognitive function for the long-haul.
What We Don’t Like
There is a lot more about this supplement that we don’t like than things we do.
The most obvious issue is the low doses we see across the board here.
For example, New Health Neuro Matrix contains Lion’s Mane Mushroom, which is a potentially incredible nootropic. LMM supplementation can increase the expression of certain neurotrophic factors. These factors enhance neuron growth and accelerate neuron maintenance. This has a huge impact on cognitive function, especially when measured over the course of a lifetime.
The problem is that we only get 50mg of Lion’s Mane Mushroom per serving here – A PATHETIC DOSE!
Lion’s Mane has been shown to work by numerous clinical trials now, and it is not thought to have any notable side effects. So when it is used, it is typically dosed generously.
We have found that 500mg per day is sufficient to promote neuron proliferation and maintenance. Some stacks use much more, because why not? The 50mg we get from this supplement is simply not good enough.
We would go as far as to say that this dose is so low that LMM may as well not be in the formula at all.
We also question the purity and overall quality of the extracts used here, not to mention the potency.
The label lists a very generous dose of Bacopa monnieri, which looks great. But we aren’t given an extract potency – an industry standard practice. It could be 50% bacosides as standard, it could have been purified to concentrate all the most useful bacosides (as per Mind Lab Pro), or it could just be a whole plant extract.
All we are given is the name of the ingredient.
This is really bad practice, and leads us to assume that it is a weak whole plant extract, providing plenty of raw plant material and very little in the way of useful, memory-enhancing bacosides.
New Health Neuro Matrix Side Effects
Perhaps the biggest issue we have with this brain supplement is the elevated risk of side effects that it exposes users to.
Without doubt, the main source of trouble will be the Huperzine A.
This stuff blocks the formation of acetylcholinesterase. This is the enzyme which breaks down and removes acetylcholine from the brain. Elevated acetylcholine is a good thing, so long as it is kept under control. When using a cholinergic, we do supply more choline to the brain, but the brain is still able to get rid of excess acetylcholine.
With Huperzine A that isn’t possible. An excessive build-up of acetylcholine in the brain can cause a number of side effects which range in severity:
- Lack of motivation
- Memory lapses
- Muscle cramps
This is not an exhaustive list of side effects, and of course how severe they manifest themselves depends heavily on the amount you’re taking, and for how long.
To mitigate the risk of experiencing these side effects, you NEED to cycle Huperzine A.
If you do not cycle Huperzine A, you will eventually build up too much acetylcholine and you WILL experience side effects.
The exact length of a Huperzine A cycle depends on lots of factors. We have discussed this at length in this article, which we urge you to read before even considering using this substance.
We are not doctors. This is not medical advice. All we try to do is highlight the most obvious side effect risks based on our experience and the available scientific literature (and to some degree user reports). This is not exhaustive and it is not advice tailored to you. You have your own individual circumstances you need to consider. Just because a stack looks safe to us does not mean it is 100% safe FOR YOU! Your allergies, pre-existing conditions, and risk factors have a big influence on how safe a substance is! Do your own research and talk to a doctor before continuing.

New Health Neuro Matrix Review Conclusion – Does It Work?
We think this stack will probably contribute to some mild improvements in cognitive function for some users, but it is not a stack we would recommend to our readers – not by a long shot.
For one thing, results will vary, and in most cases, they’ll be pretty unremarkable.
We also question the value for money we’re getting here. The best ingredients are dosed too low to have a noticeable effect on brain function. There’s nothing to really skyrocket focus or drive in the short term, and the bacopa monnieri extract strength is unknown (which almost always means it’s weak).
The need for cycling due to the presence of Huperzine A seals the deal for us – WE’LL PASS.
The need for taking constant breaks every 3-4 weeks for fear of getting severe side effects will serious diminish the effects of the other ingredients.
Not a great stack at all.
