As I started to write the ADDTabz review, I was reminded of my time as a student.
Student life is filled with challenges such as communicating with people, making friends, joining a fraternity, and most importantly keeping up with courses and lectures.
Passing most reputable universities is no easy feat which requires students to have clear focus during their study period on campus to learn and retain huge amounts of information.
With lots of distractions, it’s easy to forget things and can be a potential pitfall for these students.
That is why many students try to find a way to improve their cognitive memory to keep up with semester grades – often turning to ‘blackmarket’ purchased narcolepysy drugs such as Adderall.
The rise (an estimated 30% – 50% of students now take ‘study drugs‘ to help them cope and perform) has led to manufacturers of dietary supplements offering alternative brain formulas.
Not as a effective than a prescription drug – but a lot safer than taken something not meant for you!
One particular nootropic that is popular among students is ADDTabz.
Who makes ADDTabz
We also found that this supplement is manufactured by Lexium International™. This group claims to be the leading designer in pharmacological alternatives to provide quality and safe products.
Their emphasis is mainly research, but their own website says they are also supplement manufacturers.
Based in the United States and the U.K, they have been in operation for around 25 years. Their primary focus is leaned towards weight loss, ADD/ADHD, Diabetes, anxiety, and stress-relief.
We had wished we could know more about them. Looking at ADDTabz way of providing Lexium’s information, we begin to realize that they are of the same group.
Reviewing what ADDTabz claims to do
When we heard about ADDTabz, and that it’s popular in the student community, it really caught our attention. We were really excited to know more about this nootropic and decided to find out more.
The first thing we did was go straight to their website and the first impressions were somewhat underwhelming. They present their website in a very neat fashion, but it lacks any real meat to back its claims, and doesn’t say much at all except how to buy.
What is clear, is that ADDTabz is marketed toward students.
What caught our eye the first time were the four points they mentioned claiming “ADDTabz is scientifically designed to:”
- Assist in Memory and Learning
- Enhance Positive Mood
- Help Stimulate Cognitive Ability
The site also claims that they are “The Adderall Alternative”. Even more, they provide a side by side comparison with Adderall.
Other information we got from their website included the fact that this nootropic is a non-prescription supplement meaning we can legally purchase it over the counter or online.
They claim that the supplement contains ingredients approved by the FDA, though we were put-off by the fact that the website did not include any solid information regarding the supplement’s active ingredients and benefits.
We would have expected a company like this would at least display some information regarding the supplement’s proven results.
ADDTabz lack of scientific evidence
As we dug around for more information on their website, we came across their FAQ page. A lot of claims have been made without any real scientific proof except for comparisons between Adderall.
They only really answer simple questions, avoiding any real science, and while the initial impressions appear good, it is easy to become quickly disappointed by the lack of scientific data and backing to suggest ADDTabz could hold its own against Adderall, or any other modern nootropic brain supplement.
The website doesn’t even feature a single customer review.
What are these guys hiding? If they claim to be “safe” then why not show their active ingredients on their website like the rest of the nootropic competitors?
When we searched for ADDTabz reviews around the internet, not a lot of solid reviews were found either.
We came across one or two that were quite extensive, but they were also quite negative, with many sharing the same gripes.
ADDTabz: Reviewing the ingredients
Like many manufacturers, Lexium do their best to hide their formula. Not only does it come hidden behind a proprietary blend, but it’s also near impossible finding a supplement facts label!
But I managed it…
As far as the core ingredients go, here’s what you are looking at:
Octopamine-HCL – Used as an energy booster. Apparently, it’s also an effective weight loss supplement as it promotes weight loss.
Naturally it’s found in the bitter orange plant. We can expect increased heart rates by consuming this which contributes to wakefulness.
Those with high blood pressure should not use this composition with other stimulants.
Methyl Synephrine – This component is a deviation of Synephrine. Synephrine itself originates naturally from the leaves of citrus plants.
Once again, Methyl Synephrine is commonly used to promote weight loss or providing energy. As with Octopamine-HCL, this substance also increases your heart rateii.
Choline CDP – Also known as Citicoline. This as a supplement alone is known to increase dopamine receptor densities and helps prevent memory impairment.
Recent research has shown that Choline CDP is helpful in improving focus and mental energy. Daily dosages of Choline CDP can range from 1000mg to 2000mg alone and is considered safe.
Anhydrous 1,3,7 Trimethylxanthinei – If “Anhydrous 1,3,7 Trimethylxanthine” is quite a mouthful, then use its more common name – caffeine! This is caffeine’s scientific name, with ‘Anhydrous’ meaning “no water”- so caffeine powder.
Everybody knows the benefits and drawbacks of caffeine itself and so this really needs no explanation. A quick boost to alertness, but with the potential to ‘crash’ for those sensitive to caffeine and its effects.
There is a hell of a lot of fillers included in that list, including the coloring #40 – known to play havoc with the brain’s neurotransmitters.
ADDTabz review… You want HOW much?
Our ADDTabz review did uncover something very clear – ADDTabz isn’t cheap – and certainly out of most students budget.
Investing in a cognitive enhancment supplement can be one of the best investments you make, of course, providing you find a product that works.
ADDTabz review summary
Based on the information to hand, the online review, the lack of formula breakdown, and what looks to be an underpowered formula, our ADDTabz review doesn’t end in a priz for the manufacturers.
Nobody here at Brain Pills . Info was prepared to stop their current stacks to test and review ADDTabz due to the above unfortunately.
Furthermore, with an uninformative website, we expect this product’s company to take the nootropic business more seriously if they want to earn our trust.
There is little to no info and nothing in the way of sources to clinical trials backing their claims.
Finally, getting over that price is just too much to handle. At $70 a month (for a 1-a-day 30 count bottle), there is sooo much choice out there from brands such as Nitrovit, Alpha Brain, Qualia (if you have the money), and Nooshift – all with proven track records.
Our advice is that you seek out other recommended products which have a lasting effect at a clear and affordable price. ADDTabz just doesn’t cut it for us.
