Focus Boost Review
Here at bestsmartpills.com, we’ve been hearing quite a few things concerning Focus Boost – some of them good, but one email actually has brought something to our attention: the fact that Focus Boost has quite a lot of messy mistakes regarding their marketing and IT.
Apparently, what we found out was that if you go onto Focus Boost’s website, and that of Doxiderol’s, you’ll see some distinct similarities. The text, the pictures, and even the ingredients are quite similar, and suggests that these are the same people who are behind the two products. This might mean that one of these is just a slightly different product readjusted in formula, and rebranded to fit a different target market.
We’re not saying that this is a bad thing. There’s obviously nothing bad to have more than one product under the same makers. However, the lack of attention to detail and care that is demonstrated by the obvious similarities might raise the question on the amount of care that’s being put into their product as well. We’ll be analyzing. Read on for more!
Unfortunately, Focus Boost immediately loses points on the fact that they have a proprietary blend in their formula. Although not necessarily a bad thing either, it raises the question on their intentions for doing this: did they want to hide their formula’s ingredients’ proportions in case competitors want to steal their secret? Or was it to hide the fact that their ingredients are extremely similar in almost every way to that of Doxiderol’s? There is room for much speculation. However, the research we have done is leaning our perception to the latter one.
Another interesting thing that we felt was unnecessary, was the inclusion of caffeine in their formula. Caffeine, a stimulant, although showing great effects for increasing alertness and overall mood, can really mess with nootropics. First of all, caffeine is a relatively cheap substance. With the amount of caffeine we regularly see on nootropics, we find it hard to want to pay for an expensive nootropic in which 25% of its real estate goes to caffeine. Wouldn’t you rather have an absolutely effective nootropic and supplement it with coffee?
Ingredients score: 15/25
Experimenting with Focus Boost
None of us were overly excited to try Focus Boost, to be honest. We felt that the research that we’ve done really turn us off from Focus Boost’s possible effects. We didn’t particularly enjoy the fact that we were completely unaware of the proportions of the ingredients included in Focus Boost. This meant we weren’t able to diagnose what would be causing side effects, if any.
Well, almost immediately, all of us were to report… nothing. Not one of us were able to feel any different after having taken Focus Boost than when we first took it. Oh, yes. There was a caffeine kick that we felt almost every time, however, this was very obviously different to what you’d feel from a strong nootropic, like Alpha Brain or Nitrovit. Those effects come in gradually, as opposed to Focus Boost’s, which felt like a kick to the face.
Some of us tried to up our daily dosages of Focus Boost, but that only resulted on extreme caffeine overdose symptoms like anxiety and the jitters.
Experimenting with Focus Boost score: 8/25
Focus Boost is available for both options of bottles of 30 capsules and 90 capsules. The 30-capsule bottle being $56 and the 90-capsule bottle being $90. Obviously, it’ll depend on you on how many capsules you want to be taking a day. They just caution their users not to take over 3 capsules a day. So if you find that your tolerance is low and only need one capsule a day, it’ll be $56 a month. If you need 3 a day, though, $90 is a pretty steep price for a nootropic.
Keep in mind that our tests found that Focus Boost wasn’t really as effective as the other nootropic supplements that we’ve tried before. There are other much more effective nootropics out there for around half the price of Focus Boost
Price score: 16/25
We found that although a majority of our readers chimed with similar results to those of our tests, that a number of them also rated Focus Boost positively. This was quite weird due to the fact that none of us were able to experience these positive benefits that some of them reported. Even after upping the dosage to 3-a-day, it still only barely made the cut, and did so with quite a few caffeine-related effects.
Some who have been taking it for a while also commented on extremely bad caffeine withdrawal upon discontinuing the Focus Boost, though. This might just suggest the amount of caffeine in Focus Boost, which we feel is around the 300mg mark, which is common for many nootropics with caffeine.
Readers’ Report Score: 18/25
Focus Boost suffers from bad IT and bad marketing. It’s evident in the lack of care and attention to detail that they have poured into their website. This brings to light that just possibly, the same lack of care persists to their nootropic. But we can only speculate. However, their ingredients seem to be hidden under a proprietary blend and contain caffeine, a cheap substance which shouldn’t be in nootropics. That said, this persists into the tests and to the reports we’ve had from the readers as a lot of them attest to the caffeine-related effects and side effects associated with taking Focus Boost. For the price of $90 a month to get a substantial dose of Focus Boost, it might just not even be worth it. One word that we’ve repeated quite a few times in this review is lacking, and that’s what we feel about Focus Boost: it’s lacking.
