Today, we will be reviewing a brain supplement known as Addys Focus; a brain supplement that has been commonly referred to as the limitless pill. The significance of this review is that this will be the first user requested product review! Glad to see the website growing.
Two weeks ago Scott sent me the following email:
What I wanted to ask you is if you can possibly review a product for me. I’m a college student, so I don’t want to risk spending money on something that isn’t worth it. The product is called Addys Focus, it’s a supplement that is supposed to improve your concentration and give you a good energy boost. If you can use it and post a review, I would be very grateful.
First of all, this wasn’t the first brain supplement that I’ve used. I’ve actually used OptiMind, and still am.
When I recieved Scott’s email, I was quick to looking into ways of buying a bottle and luckily, I found out that the company is actually offering a free trial (well you do have to pay $5 for the shipping…)
Once I placed my order, I waited about 3 days for a bottle to be delivered, so as of this post, I have had 10 days to put together my opinion on the product. First of all, let’s see what Addy Focus promises:
- Increase in energy
- Increase in concentration
- Improvements in memory
- Improvement in critical thinking
How does it do all that?
Apparently Addys Focus is composed of nootropics. Nootropics is a fancy word for “smart drugs”. These are the following nootropics you should find in Addy Focus and what they do:
- Tyrosine – creates neurotransmitters that promote mental alertness
- L-Theanine – improves focus
- Bacopa Monnieri – increases blood blow to the brain (guessing this might help with critical thinking)
- Vinpocetine – improves the brain’s utilization of glucose, increasing energy production.
So on paper, the product looks effective. But does it work it actually work? Let’s get into my review.
Three words. Expensive coffee pill.
The effects that I felt from taking Addys Focus was akin to simply overdosing on coffee. Did I get an energy boost? Yes I did. Did I seem more alert? Yes I did. Do I receive the same effects from grabbing a black coffee from Dunkin Donuts in the morning? Just the same. What made the experience even worse was that I dealt with an upset stomach and the repeated crashes. After a couple days of giving the pills a try, I gave up on them and threw the whole bottle out.
Even though Addys Focus promises the use of all those nootropics, I have good reason to believe that the dosages they used for the nootropics weren’t significant enough.
Here is the worst thing about all this, if you weren’t sharp enough to realize that Addys Focus will charge you 14 days after placing your ‘free trial’ order, then you’d wake up to a $70 charge on your credit card.
$70 for a bunch of coffee pills in my opinion is very expensive. Especially when you can pick up a quality coffee pill for $15 which contains 60 capsules.
Overall, Addys Focus is not worth your money. If you’re looking for a brain supplement that works and is leading in the industry, I highly suggest reading my review of Optimind. This supplement has been covered by many large editorial websites such as Vice. Most of all, they’ve actually conducted actual case studies on their product, and have positive reviews all over the web. In addition, unlike Addy Focus, you can receive a free sample for $0. You don’t have to pay for shipping or anything! Keep in mind, Addys Focus actually charges you $5 for ‘shipping & handled’ when you want to pick up a sample.
