TruBrain is a lineup of supplements created by some neuroscientists. All of the products are nootropic and promise to improve mental clarity, attentions, memory and focus. The company claims to use scientifically proven components, from magnesium to Theanine. This lineup has been manufactured in the USA since 2012. Tru Brain is based in California. But do they work as advertised? TruBrain products are very expensive but does the price tell of the quality? Are Tru Brain supplements really as powerful as promised? Today, we will try to answer these questions.

So, the company was founded four years ago by a group of neuroscientists who were interested in the advancements in the nootropic field and decided to make their own supplements. Today, TruBrain manufactures nootropic capsules and a lineup of Think Drinks. As the latter are the first nootropic drinks in the world there is lack of evidence proving their effectiveness and safety. There is an official website but it has little information on the ingredient description and possible side effects.

Does It Have Any Side Effects?

The manufacturer of TruBrain products does not mention any possibility of experiencing side effects or adverse reactions. Usually, such silence means that something important is hidden. There may be some potential dangers or wrong dosage, or health restrictions. In fact, as a specialist I can say that these supplements should not be used by people under age, pregnant and breastfeeding ladies, patients with chronic diseases, allergic reactions or unusual health conditions. I have made a thorough research of possible side effects and this is what I have found.

One of the main products' component, Piracetam, has not received enough scientific study and laboratory research, but it can cause some side effects. These can include feeling shaky or nervous, weight gain, headaches, and sleepiness. Another ingredient, L-theanine, can also be dangerous due to its side effects. Users report of several adverse reactions namely dizziness, headache, and GI symptoms.

TruBrain needs to undergo more testing because it may be toxic. Overall, there are some negative customer testimonials online. Most of them complain of mood swings, decreased motivation, increased irritability, headaches and, certainly, high price. Let us have a look at some of the users' reviews on the Internet.

"TruBrain does not offer a magic pill. To feel mentally healthy you will need to not only swallow these pills, but have enough sleep, not to overwork and get enough rest. Nevertheless, here we face a question - do we really need these pills? I doubt this."
"I am not satisfied with Tru Brain drinks. First, they taste awfully, secondly, they make me gag. I will not order them anymore. A product for such a high price should at least taste well! I do not recommend it."
"My experience of using Trubrain is terrible. On the first day I took the capsules, I felt a little bit dizzy. I did not pay attention to such a thing thinking that could be due to alcohol consumption the previous day. However, the next day that symptom repeated. Now I am afraid of drinking the stuff."
