Epiphany D1 Review: A Ridiculously Expensive Caffeine-Drink Alternative.
Epiphany D1 suffers from some
thing that most other nootropic products also suffer from. Ironically, they lack focus in their ingredients list, which in turn shows a lack in the benefits that could be achieved as well.
Epiphany D1 also suffers by the fact that it builds a tolerance that reduces its effectiveness over time due to some of the ingredients it contains.
There are good and bad to the product, but it’s also wrapped in a hefty price tag.

Under close observation, you can see that Epiphany D1 suffers from a loss of identity, much similar to other nootropic products available out there.
It tries to be a multivitamin, a stimulant, and an antioxidant – all at the same time in which it tries to achieve its nootropic effects.
This isn’t something that we generally appreciate when taking a nootropic, especially due to the possible effects that a combination of two different ingredients might cause.
Overall Dose Potency: 13/20
Revisiting Epiphany D1’s formula, you can see why we said we weren’t all too happy when the word from upstairs came that we’d be testing Epiphany D1.
The formula is crammed in with filler, ranging from vitamins to nutrients to caffeine! In their 750mg capsule, only around 500mg is actually used towards actual nootropic effects.
On top of this, their recommended daily dosage is only 2 capsules a day, undercutting the recommended dosage of ingredients as prescribed by our nootropic ingredients bible.
Short Term Results: 11/20
We already had concerns before trying Epiphany D1, but just after 3 days into taking Epiphany D1, they were immediately addressed.
On the first day, it seemed that Epiphany D1 immediately weighed in on our ability to do work.
A majority of us reported a great boost in focus, however, a small notable number of us also reported the feeling of anxiousness.
This effect subsided through the course of the week, and soon, we felt normal again, as if we weren’t even taking Epiphany D1.
We believe this was due to the tolerance and resistance that built up due to the inclusion of caffeine in Epiphany D1’s formula.
Long Term Results: 13/20
Towards the end of the second week, we felt that we had to up the dosage over what was recommended just to be able to catch up on the nootropic effects that we needed.
However, we found out that this was a bad idea due to the amount of caffeine in a single capsule: 95mg. This made some of us stop taking coffee altogether.
Having almost 300mg of caffeine a day, supplemented with additional caffeine from coffee and soft drinks isn’t really good for your body.
We eventually had to keep it at 2 capsules, and we felt that it just wasn’t doing any good at that rate either.
The dosages weren’t high enough on the nootropic side to maintain good cognitive benefits. Eventually, toward the 2-month point, the effects weren’t even noticeable anymore.
Sad to say, we were disappointed.
Side Effects: 15/20
There were quite a number of side effects brought about by Epiphany D1, although nothing major.
First of all, we all had to go through the very infamous caffeine crash as a result of discontinuing the usage of the product at the end of our 15 week trial.
However, even when we were still in our trial period, many of us reported anxiousness, and a feeling of overwhelming, which could also be attributed as effects of caffeine, similar to downing 2-3 Red Bulls in the span of 30 minutes and getting the jitters.
However, it’s a good thing that aside from caffeine-related effects, there are no side effects from Epiphany D1.
A bottle of Epiphany D1 comes at a price of $59.95, which is a pretty good price. It’s not too cheap, neither is it too expensive.
However, what we noticed soon after purchasing Epiphany D1 was that we were lacking around half of what we needed for our 15 month trial.
This was due to the fact that each bottle only contained 30 capsules. At a 2-per-day dosage, that equates to only 2 weeks.
That means that the actual price for a month’s dosage of Epiphany D1 is actually closer to $120, which is a ridiculously absurd amount, added to the fact that its effects aren’t even that great, and even peters off after continuous usage.
You’d be better off buying a month’s supply of coffee.
Epiphany D1, like many other nootropics, suffers from a lack of focus, in its ambition to become a superdrug, something that’s not easily done, especially in forms of capsules.
Aside from this, Epiphany D1 also suffers from many of the caffeine-related effects that most stimulant nootropics also suffer from: the all-too-familiar caffeine crash, the jitters, and the buildup of tolerance with continuous usage.
In light of this, it does work, for a while. However, that again, might be due to the effects of caffeine. After extended usage, the effects start to wear off.
At the price of $120 a month, it comes with a very expensive price tag.
There really is no reason to buy Epiphany D1 – there are far more effective nootropic solutions for a cheaper price. Definitely look elsewhere, maybe coffee or Red Bull if you want these effects.
