“Brainzyme [is] aimed at helping people who want to think more clearly”

Forbes features Brainzyme

"Brainzyme is a food supplement for the brain, also known as a 'cognitive enhancer', manufactured by Edinburgh-based Better Nutritional Science and aimed at helping people who want to think more clearly and be more focused and less distracted, including students, sportspeople, and working professionals."

- Alison Coleman, writing for Forbes.

The Times:

Peta Bee tries Brainzyme - and is ‘convinced nootropics are worth pursuing’

The Times newspaper features Brainzyme

“Brainzyme, a “natural nootropic” … The most noticeable effect, even on the first day of taking [Brainzyme], was the alleviation of my mid-afternoon slump …

If I popped my nootropic at noon, I felt less inclined to drop off at my keyboard at about 3pm ... [it] did convince me that nootropics are something worth pursuing.”

- Peta Bee, writing for The Times.

Daily Mail:

“Brain-fog busters in a bottle; Brainzyme Focus Pro capsules”

Daily Mail features Brainzyme

“This is a superb combination of antioxidants, phytonutrients, B vitamins, minerals plus amino acids L-theanine and L-tyrosine.”

“L-tyrosine is used to synthesise chemical messengers and helps to improve memory during stressful situations, such as multitasking. In addition, it supports immune function and energy production.”, stated Sian Baker (Registered Nutritional Therapist).

This is a 100 percent plant-powered ‘nootropic’, or smart drug. Nootropics are the brain boosters of the moment, even though natural ones, including ginkgo biloba, have been used for centuries in Chinese medicine and ayurvedic healing.

MY VERDICT: [My husband told me] I should take it more often. ‘You lit up. You were very different. You had more words, you were more upright.’

Rating: 4/5

Esports Copenhagen Games Winner (Singularity):

“Brainzyme ... it [is like] a ‘good luck’ pill”

Esports Copenhagen Games Winner (Major Tier Tournament) Team 'Singularity Esports' (Denmark/ Sweden) reviews Brainzyme:

"I believe performance-enhancing nutrition will be a big part of esports in the future.

Nutraceutical Business Review:

“Brainzyme is an effective alternative to drugs that enhance mental performance”

Nutraceutical Business Review

 “Smart drugs are increasingly common. Everyday pressures on students, professionals, athletes and active people who need high levels of concentration means that many turn to smart drugs: pharmaceuticals used off-label to try to increase brain-power.

But, what if there was a way to achieve similar things through more natural means, such as food supplement ingredients or vitamins? Could putting your brain on food with a nutritional smart drug work as well as — or better than — a pharmaceutical smart drug?

Brainzyme, a food supplement pioneering in the field of nutritional cognitive enhancement, answers this question with a resounding “yes!” 

Trail Running Magazine:

“Here’s something that nourishes your brain. Brainzyme supplement… helps to keep you focused and support[s] clearer thinking”

Trail Running Magazine features Brainzyme

“There are plenty of ways of feeding your body, but here’s something that nourishes your brain. Brainzyme supplement is claimed to be a cognitive enhancer, which in lay terms means it helps to keep you focused and support clearer thinking, which is just what you want if you’re tackling a technical mountain run. Brainzyme says its capsules are fast-acting and take effect within the hour.” 

Obstacle Race Magazine:

“Taking these is a little like having the power to flick a switch in your brain to have it working at full capacity all the time and without any crash”

Obstacle Race Magazine features Brainzyme

“Another way to get a head start is to use supplements called Nootropics. These food supplements are designed to help you think clearer, concentrate longer and just generally get the most out of your brain. Taking these is a little like having the power to flick a switch in your brain to have it working at full capacity all the time and without any crash.

Brainzyme have hit the UK market with a nootropic which is really making waves in the sporting and professional circles. A healthy list of athletes [including] Britain’s best Badminton player Kirsty Gilmour are already raving about the benefits of these brain boosting supplements. Brainzyme have three levels of nootropics available."

- Carl Wibberley writing for Obstacle Race Magazine.

Tim Grivell - Psychologist & counsellor: 

“My favourite natural substitute for Modafinil is a supplement called Brainzyme*”

Tim Grivell Msc MBACP
Registered Psychologist & Counsellor

“My favourite natural substitute for Modafinil is a supplement called Brainzyme, which is fairly new, and I was initially pretty sceptical about, but actually in my experience, it does seem to compare very favourably.

It comes on within the hour, like Modafinil, and whether it due to the aforementioned Choline, which it contains, Matcha green tea which has Theanine, which is another natural nootropic, or L-Tyrosine, which has a similar dopamine pathway to the one Modafinil does …

If you do choose to go down the natural route, my particular favourite in terms of comparison with Modafinil is the Brainzyme Professional, which is their ‘mid-range’ option and that seems to work out a bit cheaper than buying Modafinil online.”

*Please note - this quote refers to the use of Modafinil as a ‘smart drug’ (taken off-label) and not for narcolepsy. If you have been prescribed Modafinil by a Doctor for legitimate medical reasons you must not stop taking it.

Dr Sarah Nicholls - Doctor: 

“Brainzyme contains Matcha, Guarana and Choline, which are all well known to boost cognitive effects”

Dr Sarah Nicholls

“Brainzyme is a nutritional supplement, which means that it’s a food supplement, rather than being a medicine. It has a variety of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, that are intended to boost concentration, help you be more motivated, give you more energy and boost your memory.

It contains Matcha green tea powder, Guarana and Choline, which are all well known to boost these cognitive effects. And it’s not like energy drinks and coffee, in that you won’t experience palpitations or restlessness you might experience with highly caffeinated drinks, and you should also not experience the typical crash you might do after coffee. They have a few different varieties, my favourite is the [Brainzyme] Elite."

Kirsty Gilmour's Brainzyme Review:
British Badminton Champion and Olympian

“I used [Brainzyme] during a couple of my matches at the recent Scottish Open tournament.

I thought they worked really well! I felt my eyes were able to focus on the shuttle better and my concentration was better for longer. I've been using the Professional capsules and I think they work a treat!”

“British Indoor Champion (800m)” Guy Learmonth:

“Brainzyme improved my mental performance, concentration and alertness in training”

Guy Learmonth's Brainzyme Review:
British Indoor 800m Champion

“Being an athlete, I'm naturally a bit skeptical with all supplements that I put into my body but with Brainzyme I've found to be an incredible food supplement for training, racing and all aspects of my life away from the track. Races at the highest of levels come down to fine margins, winning or losing, medaling or not, can come down to hundredths of seconds and Brainzyme is helping provide me with that natural cognitive enhancer to gain that mental edge over my rivals.

The power of the mind is widely overlooked when performing, but I truly believe winning and losing is determined weeks before anyone steps out onto the track and that is why I am bringing Brainzyme into my everyday life, to improve my mental performance, concentration and alertness in training on a daily basis so that come race day, I am 100% mentally as well as physically ready. "Get smart, get more done!”

Duncan Menzies' Brainzyme Review:
Team Paterson

“I found this product particularly helped me during early morning starts. I would simply pop two Elite tablets before getting out of bed, then go and shower and by the time I was out of the shower I would be raring to go! I’ve already recommended the tablets for the rest of my teammates!”

Diary of a Student Medic: a Medical Student in the UK with the aim of the blog to log the medical school journey

Tahmeena writes: "I will be completely honest here, when Brainzyme initially approached me I definitely was a bit skeptical. I’d never tried any brain supplements before and wasn’t really planning on doing so – it’s not something that had really ever crossed my mind. But I thought I might as well try it ...
I did notice that when taking this supplement, I was able to complete tasks quicker – for example, I was able to write the majority of a blog post (that is yet to be published!), when on other occasions it can take me a couple of separate sessions to complete a post ... Obviously the effect on different people will be different, but this is just my experience of taking the Brainzyme supplements. If you’re someone who gets quite lethargic when studying, it may be worth trying these supplements to keep your energy and alertness up during a long study session or a late afternoon/evening study session when energy levels can dip!"

In Sophies Mind; an award-nominated blog by a vegan blogger from Northern Ireland

Sophie writes: "When I first saw the email I received; I was a little sceptical I won’t lie about that, it sounded too good to be true ... I took 2 capsules with water & started writing, as I had a lot I needed to catch up with, I wrote an article within an hour and started a new one. This may not seem like much but for me I usually lose concentration and end up saving my posts as drafts and never look at them again; I currently have 40 drafts half written some from back in October last year. So being able to sit down for that amount of time and produce something from it was incredible."

Phoebe Says Hello: A blog to show you how easy veganism can be

Phoebe writes: I was a little skeptical when I first received my Brainzyme capsules as I didn't believe that something like this would give me a boost of energy that is not only healthy for me but completely plant-based and as a vegan this factor means a lot to me - it seemed too good to be true! But to my surprise, it works! I'm a freelancer and work from my bedroom so at around 2 or 3pm I start to feel tired and unmotivated to do any more work ... so Brainzyme really did save me!
