ADDTabz Review; The ideal student supplement?
Being a student in university is a phase that most of us go through. 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.
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% 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.
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 nootropicand decided to find out more.
The first thing we did was go straight to their website and the first impressions were “wow!”. They present their website in a very neat fashion and is quite informative, and clearly marketed toward students.
What caught our eye the first time were the four points they mentioned claiming ADDTabz”
- improves memory and learning
- enhances cognitive ability
- improves total brain function
- reduces anxiety and improves mood
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.
The only thing we could find was “Ampheta-CDP”. We would have expected that a professional company like this would at least display some information regarding the supplement’s contents.
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.
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
So far, our research has led to dead ends. Our only real lead here is the keyword “Ampheta-CDP”. Now we have something to work with.
So what is Ampheta-CDP composed of? Well again, we found no information as to how Ampheta-CDP was in ADDTabz.
All the searches we found all lead to websites that are run and managed by the same company who manufactures ADDTabz, so it would appear Ampheta-CDP may just be a fancy name for a common nootropic such as CDP choline.
As far as the core ingredients go, here’s what we could establish:
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.
Unfortunately, no other ingredients are mentioned… That’s your lot!
ADDTabz review summary
Based on the information we have accumulated, we have decided to come up with the conclusion that ADDTabz is not something we will recommend, no test ourselves.
With a lot of unclear information regarding the amount of key and minor ingredients is one contributing factor which steers us clear from this nootropic.
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.
Finally, no clear price is mentioned until the checkout page so you can expect high prices from this brand.
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.
Our score: 82%
