TOP 5 SMART PILLS REVIEWS of 2016/2017
Last Updated: October 7th, 2017
Our panelists review the products by allotting a score out of twenty, in each of the following categories:
Ingredients/20 Effectiveness/20 Online Reputation/20 Side Effects/Issues/20 Pricing and Value/20
Any product scoring over 90% is a worthy consideration if you are looking to add a nootropic to your daily nutrition schedule. We also take into account the reviews that you send to us. Each month our very own Editor puts her name to the months best smart pill, both in terms of results, and value.
Without a doubt, Lumonol is the best all round premade nootropic available. Increased focus, verbal fluency, memory recall, and even reaction times. The formulation, with a hefty dose of Noopept has created a synergistic combination that at less than $2 a day is by far the best value investment we can think of for those looking to excel in all aspects of life, be you a student, an entrepreneur, a strategic sports player, or anyone who relies on clarity of thought, rapid thinking abilities and enhanced concentration levels. We loved it, our readers loved it, and we are sure you will love it too. Even our grumpy Editor has given it the thumbs up… Lumonol is here, and we doubt there will be much along for a while to knock it off the top spot. Click to read more.
- Incredible results around the 14 day mark for 95% of our reviewers
- At $1.97 per day, Lumonol is the best nootropic investment out there
- The formula is perfectly engineered with Noopept adding its magic
- Information rich website free from spin and marketing hype
- We need more readers reports on their results with Lumonol
- Not really a con, but good to add a multi-vitamin with it too
It isn’t every day that one finds a nootropic supplement that lives up to expectations of memory enhancement, increased focus, and just overall revitalized mental and physical energy status. BrainPill is far from being the faultless product available out there, but it has wonderful merits and a deserving spot in the top 5 brain pills in this review roster.
While one should generally proceed with caution in first-time supplementation (particularly involving the tricky workings of the brain), BrainPill emerges as an option worth taking in various aspects, from ingredient list and overall composition to cost and value for money.

Dr. McCleary’s Lucidal is definitely one of the better memory enhancers we’ve tried, but it disappointingly fails to leave a lasting impression due to the rather high price at $74.99. The $70 plus a month price range is not uncommon in the brain supplement industry, but Lucidal does carry a lot of cheaper multivitamins to make up the 48 ingredients packed into just three standard sized capsules! At that amount we expected to be let down on potency… So did Lucidal blow our minds, or simply leave it with a dull headache? Click to read more.
- One of the few supplements reviewed that directly targets memory
- Minor positive effects to mood, stress levels, and problem solving
- Developed and formulated by a neuro surgeon (Dr. McCleary)
- Informative website
- Not as well-rounded as other brain enhancers
- 48 ingredient formula is 20%+ multivitamin/nutrients
- Pretty expensive at $74.99 per month
We see a nootropic solution coming in from a different angle from the makers of Procera AVH… Simple, and relatively effective based around three key ingredients; Acetyl L-Carnitine, Vinpocetine and Huperzine A. You will need to cycle this product so using it as a daily nootropic brain booster is out of the question due to the Huperzine A. That is why your $39.99 only buys you 20 servings. So does it work? Well read the full review for a run down of our test results, but overall Procera AVH proved effective as a memory enhancer. Vinpocetine has long been considered a great nootropic, though reports online do complain about the Vinpocetine inducing depressive states. Two of our panelists would agree with that statement too having reported mood swings and bouts of depressive symptoms. Procera is cheap (although with only three ingredients the hobbyists will probably save a lot of money by making their own from separately bought powders. Click to read more.
- Available via online merchants such as Amazon
- Simply formula makes it less daunting for newbies
- Informative website
- Limited to anything other than a memory pill
- Can purchase ‘more complete’ solutions for similar money
- Poor value despite low price
With an interesting creation story and an even more interesting choice in ingredients used, CILTEP sadly fails to live up to all the hype surrounding it. It’s a good brain supplement that’s just that… just good. If you have been a long-time follower of nootropics and similar brain supplements, then you must have at least heard of either “CILTEP” or “Abelard Lindsay” at one point. The history behind CILTEP’s creation is quite the interesting one. It was back in 2011 when a few great minds from the internet forum site Longecity started a discussion online on what ingredients the best nootropic would contain. A few ingredients were thrown around... until a single formula was agreed upon and finally created by the original poster of that discussion, Abelard Lindsay (aka Justin). So the question remains; do avid hobbyists make a better formula than neuroscientists? Click to read more.
- Great combination of Artichoke Extract and Forskolin
- Brainchild of a collective nootropic community
- No side effects during our tests
- Ingredients list not as comprehensive as we’d like
- Experiences hit and miss – didn’t work for some
