BrainQuicken Review

BrainQuicken is a very common type of herbal remedy approach to brain nutrition supplementation. It uses a method of treating the brain very similar to that of many other products we have reviewed on this website. What is fascinating about BrainQuicken and the company behind it is that it has been changed over 27 times in just six years. This is something that has raised a flag for us when creating this review.

Is BrainQuicken Right For You?

BrainQuicken (also known under the brand name BodyQuick) is a very common type of herbal remedy approach to brain nutrition supplementation that claims to improve study skills, memory, and athletic performance. The company behind this product is BrainQuicken, an online nutritional supplements company founded by the American author, public speaker and entrepreneur Tim Ferris.

This formula is not that much different from other brain supplements reviewed on our site. However, the company changed the formula a lot in the past six years (they changed it 27 times). We understand the need of improving a particular brain supplement, but 27 times in the past six years seems a bit excessive. While there is no harm or fault in trying to improve a supplement, when claims are made regarding how effective BrainQuicken’s ingredients are, only to be changed them again the following month, it raises eyebrows. Not only that but as this is an herbal approach to brain supplementation; there is only so much that this formula can offer.

According to the official website, this product is accompanied by a 60-day, 110% money-back guarantee. However, when we tried to access this feature, the website said the offer is “on hold,” and the product is only available from online retailers.

Ingredients of BrainQuicken

  1. 1

    If the product truly worked it would be approved by the FDA and it would be mass marketed. The fact that it’s not says enough.

  2. 2

    I have tried Brain Quicken several times. At first it did not seem much so I gave up early. The second time I was desperate for some quick boost and did not have patience to try it for more that two weeks. No, the third time, after a month of use, I feel so much better that I can’t believe I gave up the first two times…

  3. 3

    Although some people are having doubts about this company and I cannot argue with that, I can say that BrainQuicken is an amazing product. It helps me with memory, concentration and also it provides energy.

  4. 4

    Great deal with this formula. It is wonderful for the brain. I feel I have so much power now and energy to become successful, because I have worked a lot lately and now I am waiting for my deserved results. It helps me to keep the levels of focus and concentration up and to be alert all the time. i feel smarter, thanks to Brainquicken!

    Having used it several times in the last few years I can say for sure it’s not a bad product at all. As far as supplements go, you can do no wrong in trying this one. I was satisfied each and every time I used it and I never felt that I needed more.

  6. 6

    I’m glad they changed the product a lot. I tried it three years ago and it was garbage. The current variant is much better and it actually does a lot of good for you. In fact, it is good enough to compete with the other supplements on the market.

  7. 7

    The is something strange about this product but I can really put my finger in it just yet. I’ve used it and liked it but I always felt that it was something that slipped my mind during the treatment. I’ll grab another bottle and see if I can figure out what it was that bugged me.

  8. 8

    Me and my brother are both taking it and we’re both satisfied with its performance. It’s as good as most of the better stuff we’ve taken in the past, but it’s by far the most reliable. This is the main difference for us between Brain Quicken and the rest.

  9. 9

    My personal trainer recommends BrainQuicken to me and everyone else at the gym. We all gathered after a couple of weeks and shared opinions. Almost everyone liked it and most of us are still using it now. Nice!

  10. 10

    This thing makes me feel energized and focused all the time. Maybe a little too much energy if you ask me, so I don’t recommend you take it over a long period of time. It’s good product that works exactly as advertised.

  11. 11

    I am just too suspicious of the product’s history to give this more than a month’s time of trust. After the allocated months I did not feel the advertised benefits. And since there is so much to be suspicious about I don;t see why I should wait any longer.

  12. 12

    Not many products worked this well for me. I’ve changed my supplement several times hoping that I would find on that does not make me agitated. Also, I usually consider headaches to be a side effect of such drugs and do not tolerate them at all. This product worked for me without any of the mentioned drawbacks. It quick, effective and relatively affordable. A good choice.

  13. 13

    This product seems to be effective while using it, but the effects stop immediately after discontinuing use. If you’re ok with it it’s a good choice.

  14. 14

    I like its effect. I feel more in control no matter what i do. It’s been a real improvement in my life.

  15. 15

    BrainQuicken has helped me go off the energy drinks I used to depend upon. I suffered from mental fatigue, but I am now better.

  16. 16

    My mom ordered this supplement for me when she saw I got more and more stressed and tired as my finals were approaching. BrainQuicken really worked for me and in a short time.

    Can you not be so repetitive, we got it the first time when you said its changed 27 times and it has vitamins in it. People don’t like wasting their time reading the same things over and over again.

      they only mention it twice from what i can see which i dont think counts as repetitive. looks like you are baised to brainquicken. i am to but on the other side, these people screwed me over pretty hard on their money-back garantee what a laugh. buyer beware

    The first day I tried this I didn’t notice a difference, but the second day and for the last 4 months of taking it, there has been a HUGE difference in the amount of energy I have and my ability to concentrate while studying. I’m sorry to hear that it wasn’t as helpful for some of you.

    I think some people don’t know the proper timing or dosage. But I definitely noticed a difference. I used it twice and I was sold. I bought two bottles. I have another friend who uses it and we went from being pretty good to the highest grades on tests. I realize there are tons of factors that come in to play. But the substantial difference I noticed would be a result of taking this product. Tim Ferris designed this product who is pretty much a certified genius. And in the article above it says that the product has been changed 27 times in 6 years….. So? If they found out little improvements along the way why not change it some? I don’t find that shady. And not to mention you didn’t even specify what changed exactly. The management? The location of the supplier? The formula of the supplement? Be more specific please.

    Looking at the ingredients which contain l-tyrosine and vinpocetine, it should increase the levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the blood and should increase blood supply to the brain. I could imagine it having a temporary effect and could be a useful pick-me-up. What worries me from looking at the ingredients is that it doesn’t give specific amounts of each nutrient for the “cognamine” formula. Therefore, it’s difficult to figure out what you’re getting and what effect it’s likely to have. I suspect this might have a short term energising effect on a healthy brain but it’s not something that should be used to treat an attention disorder.

    I tried three bottles of BrainQuicken with a range of 2 capsules a day in the beginning to 8 a day at the end. I noticed no difference at all, even in situations ideal for focus and concentration.

    I am struggling with a lot of focus/attention difficulties. This is especially a problem on the job. I bought this hoping that it would help. It did not work for me.
