ADDTabz Review; The ideal student supplement?
It was only a matter of time before we did an ADDTabz review.
Popular in the both the student community, and the entrepreneur space, it really caught our attention…
The question is – could it help hold our attention?
With our ADDTabz review, we found out… So let’s take a look and decide whether ADDTabz is worth the investment, or is your money better spent on one of the tried and tested leaders such as the mighty Nitrovit.
ADDTabz Review – Who is the manufacturer – Lexium International?
We were really excited to conduct our ADDTabz review due to the sheer number of readers who requested we reviewed ADDTabz.
(If you don’t know what a nootropic is, a nootropic is any ingredient that positively affects mental and physical performance).
The first thing we did was go straight to their website which to be honest was very underwhelming.
They present their website in a neat fashion, but the site lacks any real information beyond marketing hype.
I say ‘marketing hype’ because the ADDTabz site makes some very wild claims:
- Improves memory and learning
- Enhances cognitive ability
- Improves total brain function
- Reduces anxiety and improves mood
They also mention that they are “The Adderall Alternative” – something that got them in hot water with the press as seen here on ABC News.
Even more, they provided a side by side comparison with Adderall. “Great!” we thought. Let’s see if they really live up to their word.
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.
They claim that the supplement contains ingredients approved by the FDA – something ABC claim isn’t true.
ADDTabz Ingredients – Why are they hiding their ingredients list?!
Looking for the ADDTabz ingredients and Supplement Facts label is harder than finding a Unicorn.
I’m not sure (worryingly) what’s in ADDTabz ingredients because there is no mention of them on the website.
In fact, the website did not include any solid information regarding the supplement’s active ingredients, dosage, or testimonials that appeared real at least.
The only mention of an ingredient found in ADDTabz we could find was “Ampheta-CDP” and again the information is vague.
Manufacturer Lexium International™ 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.
Their primary focus is leaned towards weight loss, Diabetes, anxiety, and stress-relief.
This is worrying as I believe both you and I would probably hope the supplements we use for our brains are created by dedicated neuroscientists and experts – not jack of all trades.
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?
ADDTabz Review – We look at the ADDTabz reviews around the web
When we searched for ADDTabz reviews around the internet, not a lot of solid reviews were found.
We came across one or two that were quite extensive, but they were also quite negative.
The positive reviews came from product supported websites, and they didn’t even bother to include the person’s name.
Even worse, they do not mention even how much these brain supplements cost. We want to know these things!
So far, our research all has led to dead ends. Everything we’ve found so far about the mysterious ADDTabz has been quite disappointing.
ADDTabz Ingredients – We review the ADDTabz ingredients
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 many units of each substance was used in Ampheta-CDP.
All the searches we found lead to websites that are run and managed by the same company who manufactures ADDTabz.
So far we’ve uncovered the following core ADDTabz ingredients:
- Methyl Synephrine
- Choline CDP
Unfortunately, no other ingredients are mentioned. This only arouses our suspicion further.
Focusing on the main ingredients, here’s what we found.
First, Octopamine-HCL is 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.
Next we have 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 rate for about an hour – so avoid ADDTabz if you have a preexisting heart (or any medical issue).
Likely packed with Caffeine, plus the Octopamine-HCL could mean a heart attack on the horizon if you don’t know what you are doing.
We couldn’t really find a lot of information regarding this except that Methyl Synephrine is generally safe to use in small amounts.
This leaves us with Choline CDP and Anhydrous 1,3,7 Trimethylxanthine. Choline CDP is also known as Citicoline.
These 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.
Last we have Anhydrous 1,3,7 Trimethylxanthine. This is just a fancy name for caffeine including anhydrous which means “no water”.
Everybody knows the benefits and drawbacks of caffeine itself and really needs no explanation.
ADDTabz review – Where to buy ADDTabz?
Based on the information we have accumulated; we have decided to come up with the conclusion that ADDTabz is not something we will recommend.
With a lot of unclear information regarding the amount of 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.
Other facts include a rather weak composition of the supplement itself.
It’s like mixing orange juice and coffee to only raise our heart rate and because of that, increases our alertness for a short period of time (which is relatively weak if you ask us).
Finally, the price of $43 for a month’s supply is ridiculous when factoring in the milligrams of nootropics versus others.
For example, for your $43 a bottle of ADDTabz provides a total of 376 mgs of nootropics.
Our Editor’s Choice Winner Nitrovit gives you 1,741 mgs of nootropics – and includes powerhouses too such as Noopept.
ADDTabz sadly for all the above reasons just doesn’t cut it for us.
While you may still be interested to review ADDTabz for yourself, I’d recommend looking elsewhere until they can get their website information a little clearer.
Nice try ADDTabz, but Nitrovit is still unchallenged as the market leader.
ADDTabz Review Score: 4.2/10
