We were intrigued by Synapsyl when we saw that there are several review videos available on Youtube.com about the product. While this is unusual, we felt as though it could be a good sign – perhaps many customers have been so impressed by the product that they needed to film a video in order to share this star-supplement with others.
As we started to watch the video, however, we quickly realized that it was merely a picture of Synapsyl’s landing page accompanied by a very slow and irritating robotic voice-over. Truth be told, we were quite disappointed. However, our interest in product continued to linger on, so we decided to conduct a thorough research in attempt to provide our readers with all the information needed before deciding whether or not to purchase a bottle of Synapsyl.
Synapsyl’s official website starts off like this:
Although we too were fascinated by the pretty colors on the site, we quickly noticed that their advertisement seems to be rushing us to get into the Synapsyl world. Seriously, what’s the hurry? Since the product was released, their stock has always seemed to be ‘limited’. Well, we do hope that the quality of their product is as competent as their marketing techniques.
Gratefully, Synapsyl does more than repeatedly claim that their product is “100% natural”. They in fact do provide us with a supplement facts sheet (found on the right bottom corner of the page). Phew!
Here’s a screen capture of their supplement facts label:
We have to point out that their website only speaks of 3 of these ingredients – Bacopin, phosphatidylcholine and Omega-3. Funnily enough, the supplement facts sheet mentions that 125mg of phosphatidylserine has been included, NOT phosphatidylcholine. Although both are similar in terms of being able to improve neural communication, the latter has been proven to bring out completely separate benefits (such as liver damage protection). We advise Synapsyl to be more aware of their ingredients before releasing any statements. May we also point out that DMAE has recently been banned by the American FDA (Food and Drug Administration) because research has confirmed that it may cause negative neural damage in the long-term. In fact, the best ingredient they have included is Vinpocetine, which has been endlessly proven to have cerebral blood-flow enhancing and neuroprotective effects. Unfortunately, Synapsyl only packs 2mg of this golden nootropic.

Experimenting with Synapsyl
The picture of the doctor on Synapsyl’s website seems to have experimented thoroughly with the product. Look at that dashing smile! Unfortunately, we have no way of confirming whether or not the doctor is a valid practitioner or just a model from iStock.
Although we usually test products before writing reviews on them, we did not feel the same had to be done with Synapsyl. Using our knowledge of nootropics, we are aware that the stack is quite weak and we frankly would not be surprised if it does not produce any effects.
o Experimenting with Synapsyl score: 10/25
One bottle contains 60 capsules and costs $49.95. With the recommended dose of 1-2 pills a day, one bottle could easily last you one month. This price is very reasonable compared to other nootropics available in the market.
o Price score: 22/25
“Caused upset stomach. It is a scam. It will cause nausea. Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend.”

o Readers’ Report score: 10/25
While Synapsyl may make a good first impression, we quickly realized that the product’s ingredients are not of high quality and customers don’t seem to be pleased with their purchase. If you are impressed by the price and are curious to see whether or not the product works, try at your own risk!
