Profiderall Review Summary
Don’t get pulled in by the marketing spiel – this is a cheap, weak, rip-off supplement. It combines a bunch of useless, ineffective amino acids, some obvious filler ingredients, and some relatively good nootropics in a tiny proprietary blend. You should never buy a prop blend, but this one is worse than most. The marketing stinks of ‘scam’ – the website talks of Wall Street board rooms and Ivy League schools; we think not.
Since there’s no good reason to use a prop blend, we can be pretty certain that the majority of this formula is composed of the cheap amino acids. We’d love to be proven wrong, but until we see how each ingredient is dosed, we’re going to stick to our guns and say this is a total rip-off.
Where To Buy Profiderall
Profiderall has an official, independent website, but it looks a little old and poorly maintained. We think Amazon might be the better option here.
Full Profiderall Review
If you’ve found your way on to this Profiderall review then you probably saw this stack on another website advertised as a “legal study drug alternative”. It is sold on Amazon, but it doesn’t have a lot of visibility. Most people see this stuff pushed on shady nootropic websites that extol drugs like Adderall and Ritalin.
The name itself is enough to tell us that this product is positioned as a “legal alternative” to things like Adderall or Modafinil.
In the early days of the nootropics market, there were dozens of these products popping up every single week. They all had these vaguely pharmaceutical-sounding names designed to give them impression that they are similar to well known synthetic smart drugs.
But we can’t just write this product off.
What is Profiderall all about?
As you can see from the bottle, Profiderall is designed to deliver the following key benefits:
- Increased focus
- Improved memory
- Enhanced concentration
- More mental energy
- Enhanced overall mental performance
This is a pretty standard range of benefits. Most nootropic supplements claim to do all of these things.
The Profiderall website goes into a little more detail about what can be achieved with this stack:
“PROFIDERALL’s Cognitive Energy Complex™ is the first to pair clinically supported nootropics with powerful stimulants to provide intense focus and incredible energy in a single power-packed “Smart Pill.” Using the power of nootropics, PROFIDERALL “zooms you in“ so you can ignore distractions and focus at work… at school… at home.”
There’s a few mentions of “Wall Street” and “Ivy League schools”, which is never a good sign. They aren’t making any promises regarding these things, but they’ve made the references on purpose to build an association.
So this all sounds pretty familiar.
All we need to do now is take a look under the hood and see if this stack delivers the goods.
Does Profiderall actually work?
Is it safe? What are the main risks involved?
Can it deliver on its promises?
Is Profiderall the right choice for you and your goals?

Let’s take a look at the Profiderall formula:
If you’ve read many of our reviews, then you’ll know that this is not going to be very complimentary.
We hate proprietary blends.
If there’s one thing we hate more than proprietary blends, it’s tiny proprietary blends containing blatant fillers.
If such a blend contains sub-par ingredients, then it ranks among the worst nootropics on the market.
Worse still is a stack that commits the above sin while also relying on large doses of caffeine.
Profiderall is all of these things.
We are so disappointed by the formula, we’re going to skip the usual “what we like” section, because there isn’t anything.
Main Problem – Tiny Prop Blend
The main problem with Profiderall is the fact that the formula is an absolutely tiny proprietary blend stuffed full of obvious filler ingredients.
There’s never a good reason to use a proprietary blend. Manufacturers claim that they need to use them to prevent anybody “stealing” their formula. But this never happens. Ever.
The real reason manufacturers use prop blends is to hide unpleasant truths from prospective customers.
When said prop blend contains ingredients that don’t really serve a purpose (i.e they have no nootropic properties) but which are very cheap to buy in large amounts, then we become very skeptical indeed.
Taurine, for instance, doesn’t have significant nootropic properties. One could argue that it helps with energy, but that is a very tenuous claim.
Taurine is usually consumed as a supplement in amounts in excess of 500mg – MORE THAN THE whole Profilderall blend.
In fact, when used for boosting sports performance, Taurine is usually taken in amounts exceeding 1.5g per day.
Could it be that the manufacturers of Profiderall are bulking out their formula with cheap amino acids like Taurine so they can cut back on more expensive ingredients like Bacopa monnieri?
Or have they dosed all of the best ingredients how they need to be, but chosen to keep that fact secret?
We don’t know for sure, but we know where we’d put our money…
In any case, there just isn’t enough blend to go around here.
Choline bitartrate, a relatively effective cholinergic, should be taken in the 300-500mg per day range.
Obviously, even if it were present at the lowest effective dose, the Profiderall blend just isn’t big enough to accommodate both choline bitartrate and the other ingredients.
Once we dose the Bacopa monnieri and choline bitartrate right, we’d be out of formula altogether.
Obviously, either the majority of the ingredients are low dosed, or all of them are.
And since we’ve not been told how each ingredient is dosed, which of them do you think have taken the hit?
The ineffective but cheap ones?
Or the pricey but useful ones?
The answer should be obvious.
Profiderall Side Effects
There are actually some substantial side effect risks with Profiderall.
The most obvious trouble spot here is going to be the caffeine anhydrous content.
We get 150mg of caffeine anhydrous in every serving of Profiderall. That is the same amount of caffeine as you get from about 3 regular black coffees. For a lot of you, that’s going to be too much to consume in a single hit.
Caffeine anhydrous is a purified, dehydrated form of caffeine too – this means it is more potent than regular caffeine by weight (no water molecules taking up space).
Side effects of consuming caffeine in these amounts can include, but are not limited to:
- Lack of focus
You need to carefully consider your current caffeine intake before deciding whether or not to add in more through supplements. A few cups of coffee throughout the day and a pre-workout before the gym can surreptitiously put your daily caffeine intake through the roof.
You need to consider your tolerance too.
Caffeine overdose can, after all, be fatal. Take it seriously.
There’s also the Huperzine A content to consider.
As we explain in this article, Huperzine A needs to be cycled regularly. The exact length of an ideal cycle and break isn’t known, but it depends largely on the amount being used (unknown here).
Generally though, we recommend using Huperzine A for no more than 4 weeks before taking some time off.
To stay as safe and side effect-free as possible, we recommend taking off at least 7 days, or ideally as long as you were ‘on’.
Side effects of Huperzine A over-use include, but are not limited to:
- Loss of motivation
- Loss of focus
- Muscle cramps
The side effects will get worse over time.

This is just a quick look at the most obvious trouble spots. Every individual is different, so it is VITAL that you do your own research and talk to a doctor about your intentions to use this product.

Profiderall Review Conclusion
Profiderall is not a good nootropic supplement.
It doesn’t perform in any area.
It isn’t powerful. It doesn’t contain particularly high quality ingredients. It’s practically impossible for the doses to be right. Side effects ARE a significant concern. It doesn’t provide good value for money.
No matter how you look at it, this one looks like a loser.
Do yourself a favor; stay away from proprietary blends.
Especially such small prop blends where they’re obviously using fillers to bulk it out and keep costs down.
The choice of cholinergic is not ideal, and there are several potential trouble spots with regards to side effects.
Worst of all, you really need to cycle Profiderall to avoid side effects.
If you want results, opt for a more professional product. The days of scammy nootropics named after synthetic brain drugs are over. The market has moved on. You should too.
