Revange Nutrition Brain Pro Review Quick Rundown
- Powerful stimulation and focus for mental effort!
- DMHA-powered nootropic
- Powerful stimulation
- Long-lasting focus
- Tunnel-vision feeling
I’ve been wanting to delve into the field of nootropics for quite a while now. A lot of my work revolves around writing and mental effort, therefore they always seemed like the perfect choice. However, I had to read up before trying.
I did my reading and decided to do a Revange Nutrition Brain Pro review. I’ve picked Revange because I’ve got some previous experience with them. One thing I love about them – they bring stacked labels.
Even if not all stacked labels are great and well-dosed, Revange manage to surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed doing my Revange Nutrition Brain Pro review.
Note: the label states the serving size is 1 capsule but there on the description it states 1-2. I’ve tried both. Will be rating according to the label, though. However, the product seems to be intended at 2 capsules. Everything is slightly underdosed on 1 capsule. I will be commenting about dosages only on those where 2 capsules are not enough either.
- Theacrine (75mg) – Stimulant and mood booster. Has been shown to improve energy, mood, focus, and alertness by itself. Combines well with Caffeine.
- Green Tea Extract std. to 99% Caffeine (50mg) – Stimulant. Very small amount of Caffeine. Unfortunately, at 2 capsules, you’re getting about 1 cup of coffee which, for most of my readers, will be laughable.
- Bacopa Monnieri (50mg) – Nootropic. Touted to do a lot of things, however, there are reasons to believe Bacopa improves cognition, memory, and focus. Unfortunately, most studies dose about three times the maximum amount (6 capsules worth) for maximum effect. At 2 capsules might provide some improvement.
- Rhodiola Rosea (50mg) – Adaptogen. Should improve mood, energy, and the ability to cope with stress. However, dosages usually range from 300 to 600 mg and above. Unlikely to provide a lot of benefit.
- 2-Aminoisoheptane (50mg) – Novel stimulant. Also known as DMHA. Provides powerful stimulation, focus, and energy. I would say the primary driver of Brain Pro. Dosed well at both 1 and 2 capsules.
- N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (50mg) – Nootropic. Conflicting evidence about the different forms of Tyrosine, however, should improve cognition. Yet again, dosed woefully low – should be at least twice (4 capsule amount).
- Phenylpiracetam (50mg) – Nootropic. One of the OGs of the nootropics, fathered only by Piracetam itself. Improves focus, cognition, and performance. Dosed decently, although, the lower end is often considered 200mg. However, even at low doses it has been shown to be effective.
- Ashwagandha Extract (40mg) – Nootropic and anti-stress aid. Has some effect on testosterone, provides a calming effect and some focus. Usually, dosed MUCH higher, however, the standardization is also higher. At 2 capsules should already provide some effect.
- Ginkgo Biloba Extract (40mg) – Nootropic. Has been shown, if dosed frequently, to improve focus, cognition, and memory. A little underdosed when compared to regular supplementation.
- Alpha GPC (40mg) – Nootropic aid. Alpha GPC is supposed to improve focus and cognition. Very often used in combination with the racetam family (Piracetam, Phenylpiracetam, etc.) as they use up Choline. Unfortunately, dosed so low that there’s likely no effect. Dosages range from 300 to 600mg and upwards.
- L-Theanine (40mg) – Nootropic and calming ingredient. Active ingredient in green tea. Often used to smooth out the effects of stimulants. Again, very underdosed. Unlikely to have much of an effect as 5 times the dosage is used regularly.
- 5-HTP (40mg) – Mood elevation ingredient. 5-HTP is used to produce Serotonin (the feel-good hormone). Often used to enhance sleep and mood.
- Mucuna Pruriens (35mg) – Stimulation ingredient. Mucuna Pruriens has tons of L-Dopa which is actually an ingredient used to, partially, treat Parkinsons. L-Dopa is used to produce Dopamine. Slightly underdosed, it’s hard to say what’s good with this one.
- Hordenine HCL (25mg) – Fat burner and stimulant. One of those newer ingredients that provide a boost of energy and stimulation. I doubt you’re looking for fat burning with Brain Pro but you’ll get some of that as well. Dosed well.
- Phosphatidylserine (20mg) – Nootropic. Should improve memory and cognition. However, dosing is very low. Probably won’t have much of an effect.
- Noopept (18mg) – Nootropic. Another addition of the racetam family. One of the most powerful nootropics mg per mg. Dosed at a higher end of regular actually. Should improve a whole host of things, including mood, energy, focus, and cognition.
- Pterostilbine (15mg) – Antioxidant. Related to Resveratrol. Has been touted by anti-aging circles as a very effective compound. However, I’m not entirely sure why it’s included here. Would probably reduce the burden on the brain from all the compounds.
- Cinnamon Extract (10mg) – Health aid. Does a lot of health-related things, however, Cinnamon pills themselves usually go up to 4g. Whether it does anything, it’s highly dependent on how strong the extract is.
- Grape Seed Extract (10mg) – Antioxidant and pump ingredient. Actually, grape seed extract has been shown to improve blood flow among other things such as being neuroprotective. Dosing again is low. Recommended dosages range between from 100 to 800mg.
- Naringin (8mg) – Fat burner and stimulant. Very small dose, however, preworkouts are really undecided on this one. Scientific studies use a lot more generally. Should, if the dose is enough, improve energy and focus.
- Piperine (5mg) – Digestion aid. You definitely need that to get all of those ingredients into the system. Could be dosed higher, though. Still, Piperine will be effective even at this dose.
- Vinpocetine (5mg) – Nootropic. Useful as a cognition aid. Improves focus and memory. Dosed well.
- Huperzine A (100mcg) – Nootropic. Dubbed the learning ingredient, should help with memory formation and focus. Dosed well.
Well, that’s one stacked label. When I first found Revange Nutrition Brain Pro for my review I was surprised. However, as we can see, there’s a ton of ingredients that are slightly or heavily underdosed. At the same time, there are some that are dosed very well. It’s really a mixed bag here.
Honestly, I was surprised. I did a couple of test runs for my Brain Pro review. Did one capsule, several times I did two. Sometimes I spaced them out, sometimes I didn’t. Each time the effect was consistent.
About 30 mins in, the effects start kicking in. There’s a lot of focus going on. Truly, focus is the standout feature (as it should) for this product. You feel dialed-in to do any activity. However, it’s definitely best used for mental efforts.
I tried Brain Pro for gym sessions. It’s really not good as a preworkout. You don’t even really want to workout. I always felt like returning and doing some reading, writing, or gaming. Felt like the weights were a distraction. Therefore, I only recommend it (but highly!) for mental work.
There’s a lot of stimulation going on as well. At times, at 2 capsules it was a little much for me. It distracted from my work. Thus, I mostly stuck with 1 capsule. Additionally, there was little tolerance build up. I tried it a couple days in a row and everything felt the same each day. However, I believe that if it were used daily, Brain Pro would definitely fall in its effectiveness.
Unfortunately, there are some side effects. However, they are completely different from preworkout or fat burner side effects. One that I noticed and found quite annoying was random, small pains. Maybe it was from sitting too long in one position. Yet, without fail, after some time some area of my body would have a slight ache. During my research, I found that this is a common side effect of vasoconstriction. Luckily, there’s absolutely no crash from the product.
Overall, my experience with Revange Nutrition Brain Pro was very enjoyable. I could recommend it easily to anyone who has some experience with stimulants and wants to raise their productivity.
Revange Nutrition Brain Pro Review Summary
- Price – 9/10. If you actually go for 1 serving a day, you’re paying about 50 cents a pop, even without any larger sales or coupon codes. Insane value!
- Focus – 9/10. Powerful, long-lasting, and clean focus.
- Stimulation – 9/10. Powerful stimulation but only drives you to do mental work. Keep that in mind!
- Energy – 6/10. There’s improvement in energy, however, it doesn’t seem to be the main draw of the product.
Overall, it’s a very solid product. I would be recommending it for anyone who can handle stimulants and wants to improve their productivity. However, there has to be some experience with stimulants in order to handle it well and not get distracted.
