Focus Boost Review: An Overall Lack of Care, Mixed with Lacking Potency.
Focus Boost comes hides its ingredients list in a very generic Proprietary Blend that isn’t worth any of your time. Their lack of care for ingredients also demonstrates itself in a very poorly managed website and a poor IT team. That being said, Focus Boost doesn’t demonstrate much of an effect, possibly due to bad formulation. What also surprised us was the fact that we found out that Focus Boost and Doxiderol are actually under the same people and have very similar ingredients, only marketed differently. How did we find out? Again, their lack of care and attention to detail.
|Focus Boost Proprietary Blend||251.7mg|
Acetyl L-Carnitine, Bacopa Extract,
1,3 Dimethylamylamine, Huperzine A, Vinpocetine
At a quick glance, the supplement facts sheet at the back of Focus Boost might just lead you to believe that it’s your everyday nootropic. However, it might just seem too generic. Yeah, we aren’t expecting much from Focus Boost simply due to the overwhelming amount of evidence we found that linked Focus Boost and Doxiderol to the same people. We’ll let you check that out by yourself, but we’d like to express that it isn’t a problem usually. However, the fact that they did not even care enough to cover their tracks, and that their website’s copy, images, and the likes seem to be carbon copies of each other just scream a lack of care to their end users, you.
Overall Dose Potency: 6/20
If you quickly scan the supplement facts of Focus Boost again, you’ll find that there is only around 260 mg being utilized in their capsule. This begs the question on how effective their capsules really are. Most nootropic companies’ pills come in a higher dose of 750mg, on average, and require their users to take them at least 2-4 times per day, creating a potent mix. This is depending on product of course. However, we find that a capsule that’s less than 300mg quite questionable, and are worried whether or not it’ll actually work. In addition, their suggested serving only details 1 capsule a day. The fact that their nootropic ingredients are hidden behind a Proprietary blend doesn’t help either – we aren’t able to see how they proportioned their ingredients and which of them might need tweaking.
Short Term Results: 6/20
Off the bat, we were already second guessing on whether or not we should be taking Focus Boost, due to our beliefs that it wouldn’t work. Reluctantly, though, we still did. As we initially expected, we didn’t feel anything. We really believe it was due to the low potency in an individual capsule, supplemented by the low daily dosage.
Long Term Results: 8/20
It was only after we started taking 2 or even 3 of Focus Boost a day, above the recommended usage before we started feeling any effects. The bottle contains 90 capsules total, which meant that 3 capsules a day would mean that a bottle of Focus Boost would still last you a month. However, what we found was that even at 3 capsules of Focus Boost a day, we got more or less the same effect of what you’d get from just one pill from other highly potent nootropics. A week after stopping Focus Boost, it seemed like we were back to our normal selves, though, which meant that there were no long term results that we had to report concerning Focus Boost.
Side Effects: 16/20
Towards the end of our 15 week trial, it seemed as if we did not receive any side effects from the use of Focus Boost. It honestly didn’t feel that bad. However, that still doesn’t take away from the fact that it wasn’t an effective pill. One thing to note, though, was that after we stopped taking Focus Boost, it seemed as if we were experiencing withdrawal symptoms that were typical from withdrawing from caffeine. We checked their supplement facts sheet again, and there was no caffeine listed, though. That’s when we checked their website again, and what a surprise, under ingredients, they’ve listed caffeine. We found it weird that they did not include that in their supplement facts sheet, as this might cause severe consequences for people who are caffeine intolerant. Nevertheless, the only side effect we experienced was caffeine withdrawal, and it wasn’t as bad as those demonstrated in some other nootropic products.
Focus Boost has two options, a 30 capsule bottle for $39.95, and a 90 capsule bottle for $89.89. They obviously figured out that some people wouldn’t be satisfied with only one capsule a day. It’s difficult to place a price/value score here simply because of the fact that the amount of capsules you’ll be taking will depend from person to person, and thereby increasing or decreasing the price you’ll have to pay. For us at least, it was $89.89 a month, which we though was quite steep. However, if you’d be going for the $56 bottle, that’s okay too, however, don’t expect much results. Considering its price and the effects attained, Focus Boost gets a pretty substandard score.
Focus Boost is a very weak nootropic with very low dosages and very low potency. It suffers from the fact that it’s only taken once a day at a 300mg dosage, supplemented by the fact that it’s ingredients are hidden behind a proprietary blend – never a good sign. To this, Focus Boost is not a very effective nootropic, offering almost no benefits short term or even long term. You will have to take a lot more pills than what’s recommended before you start feeling anything. This adds up to quite a hefty price of $90 a month for something that doesn’t work nearly as well as its competitors. The fact that Focus Boost and Doxiderol have carbon copied information on the internet also shows their lack of care for customers. Overall, don’t buy Focus Boost. That’s the conclusion.
