BrainSmart Ultra Product ImageThis nootropic claims to be able to improve your memory, focus and overall cognition, but of course talk is cheap – does BrainSmart really have what it takes to produce such effects? In this BrainSmart Ultra review, we’re taking a look at what we believe consumers can really expect from this popular brain boosting pill.

Readers please note that statements on this page are fair comment based on observation. This content is produced on a matter of public interest.


What Is BrainSmart Ultra?

BrainSmart Ultra is an over-the-counter nootropic pill produced by a UK-based company named cognitive bioscience LTD.

BrainSmart is only available via the official website ( We could not find this product on Amazon, eBay or stocked at any other third party supplement retailers.

The product is described by the manufacturers as “smart rocket fuel for your brain”, uses all natural ingredients and allegedly won BetterNutrition’s “best of supplements award” in 2016, though the product doesn’t seem to appear on the 2016 winners list.

One bottle of BrainSmart Ultra contains 60 capsules, costs £28.99 and will last users for 30 days based on the directions of two capsules per day. There are numerous products within the BrainSmart product range, but for all intents and purposes BrainSmart Ultra is essentially a combination of the BrainSmart Focus and BrainSmart Memory products.

Consumers of this product are promised effects such as improved long and short term memory, heightened focus and mental drive.

Does BrainSmart Ultra Work?

Based on our research into this product, we do not believe it will function exactly as described on the website.

Firstly, this product does not contain any FDA-recognized nootropic ingredients. We could find no concrete clinical research to suggest anything inside BrainSmart will help improve your long or short term memory levels. Furthermore, we feel it’s pretty unlikely the product will speed up your thought processing or improve your ability to recall information (worth noting if you were planning on using these as “study pills”).

It’s not all bad, however. On more positive notes, BrainSmart Ultra does contain ingredients that may potentially help improve your alertness, focus and concentration levels. We have also identified ingredients inside the formula that will help contribute towards brain health and normal cognitive function. Overall, we feel you’re best viewing this product as more of an “alertness” pill, rather than looking at it as an intelligence-boosting pill.

Are There Any BrainSmart Ultra Reviews From Customers?

We have found the following BrainSmart Ultra review testimonials via the official website:

I definitely found the capsules to be quite valuable to me. I still use the Brainsmart Ultra capsules from time to time and it helps quite a lot especially when it comes to clearing my brain and focusing on work.

I work in a very high pressure environment which relies on mental agility and an ability to concentrate for long periods of time. I have been using Brainsmart Ultra for three months. I can advise that my memory and ability to concentrate have definitely improved. This has led to a greater degree of confidence and an overall feeling of well being at work . My Chess games have improved as well and im now beating my 19 year old son for the first time in years. That in itself is worth the price of £1 a day.

As these reviews are on the official BrainSmart website, we cannot guarantee how genuine these reviews are. As this product is not available on Amazon we could not access any independent consumer testimonials.

Our Final Verdict On BrainSmart Ultra

To conclude our BrainSmart Ultra review, it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by. While it doesn’t seem like the worst Nootropic we’ve ever came across, it just doesn’t strike us as the most cutting-edge product available for your money; we believe it’s more of a “mental alertness pill” than a bonafide “brain-booster”.

The formula contains some very useful ingredients for improving alertness (namely caffeine) and there are lots of vitamins and minerals in a serving which can contribute towards brain health.

We don’t think this product really has the ability to boost your short or long term memory, recall speeds or thought processing speeds. There’s also no guarantee it’ll improve your attention span.
