There are no surprises here, all brain supplements, without exception, promise to make you Eddie Morra of the movie Limitless.

What can Reviva BrainPlus IQ do for you?
BrainPlus IQ is promising its user improved memory, mental clarity, and intense focus using powerful, scientifically tested, and natural nootropic ingredients.
The makers claim that most people witness decline in their cognitive powers at a young age, sometimes as early as 30. There might be many reasons for the decline of cognitive performance; poor diet and an unhealthy lifestyle are just two of them. The manufacturers are presenting Reviva BrainPlus IQ as the solution; an all natural stack that can help users improve their brain power and gain an edge over their peers.
Users of BrainPlus IQ are promised these three advantages:
- Clear improvement in the way the brain processes and stores information for effective and speedy recall.
- Increase in the performance of the neurotransmitters to enhance mental clarity and support creative thinking.
- Clearing brain fog to help the user develop intense focus and concentration.
The right ingredients and proportions are both crucial for the effective functioning of a brain supplement. So, before we give our verdict, let’s talk about the ingredients that makeup BrainPlus IQ.
The ingredients – Nootropics, amino acids, and other compounds – that makeup the Reviva BrainPlus IQ supplement are listed below.
You won’t find this information in the official (product) website, which in a way raises doubt about the trustworthiness of the main website.
But, the makers of BrainPlus IQ – BioTrim Labs – have provided the same, along with the product, in their website.
The BrainPlus IQ formula contains 11 ingredients. Before we judge the effectiveness of the formula, let’s take a look at each ingredient and what it brings to the table.
Ginkgoxine 1 (Ginkgo Biloba (as 24% extract)
This ingredient is made using Ginkgo Biloba extract.
It’s well-known that the Ginkgo Biloba plant has been used for ages in traditional medicines around the world. Even scientists have backed the many claims about this herbal remedy.
The positive effects of Ginkgo Biloba are varied and long. In this review, we shall just stick to the cognitive benefits of this plant.
Scientists took notice of this wonder plant, after the report on benefits of Ginkgo Biloba was published in Rudolf Weiss’s Herbal Medicine guide.
Subsequent to the release of the guide, numerous research studies were carried out to look into the medicinal value of the Ginkgo Biloba plant.
The herbal cognitive enhancer improves thinking, memory, mental clarity, and focus of the users by reducing nerve damage and increasing oxygen content in the blood that flows into the brain.
St. John’s Wort
The mind of a depressed person is filled with negative thought, instead of focusing on the matter at hand, the depressed person thinks and is worried about the negatives surrounding him/her.
This leads to more depressed thinking and behavior. We need external help to break free of the vicious cycle of depression.
The St. John’s Wort extract in BrainPlus IQ provides relief from anxiety, depression, and stress.
It’s believed that St. John’s Wort treats stress and anxiety by influencing the genes that control the body’s central stress response system; experts call it the Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal (HPA) axis. The herbal substance also controls depression by moderating the functioning of the neurotransmitters in the brain.
Additionally, the neuroprotective properties of St. John’s Wort prevent brain inflammation and neurotoxicity.
To notice an improvement in thinking, perception, reasoning, learning, and memory, our brain needs more acetylcholine than what’s presently available.
The Acetyl-L Carnitine (an acetylated version of Carnitine) in Reviva BrainPlus IQ helps stimulate the production of the neurotransmitter.
The ingredient has high bioavailability, so it easily crosses the BBB and enters the brain.
In the brain, the ingredient breaks down, binds with choline to form the neurotransmitter.
Acetyl-L Carnitine on its own can do little to increase acetylcholine levels. It requires a choline source to produce the neurotransmitter.
Studies have also shown Acetyl-L Carnitine to possess neuroprotective and antioxidant properties.
It’s believed that the ingredient treats spinal cord injuries, reduces damage caused by cerebral ischemia, removes toxins from the brain, and lessens oxidative stress.
Gluatamine as a treatment option is given to patients suffering from senility and schizophrenia. It is also known to improve IQ and memory in those affected by mental diseases.
As a nootropic, Glutamine reduces toxic buildup in the brain, aids in nitrogen transportation, and influences GABA and glutamic acid – two of the most important neurotransmitters in the brain.
If sufficient dosage of this supplement is taken, the user might notice an improvement in mood, memory, and thinking.
Other health benefits of Glutamine include better control over the blood sugar level, improvement in energy levels, and strengthening of the immune system.
This is a form of aminophospholipid that makes up nearly 2-10 percent of our fat cells; nearly half of which is found in the brain.
As a supplement, it enhances various cognitive faculties by improving communication between neurons.
Due to old age or medical conditions, the cell membranes get damaged and lose their ability to effectively send and receive signals.
The Phosphatidylserine supplement restores the fluidity of the membranes and facilitates faster to and fro movement of electric signals.
Furthermore, the supplement has a high BBB, so, once inside the brain, it effectively metabolizes glucose by combining with neurotransmitters.
Studies have shown that the ingredient improves mood and other cognitive functions by stimulating the production of dopamine and acetylcholine.
Bacopa Monnieri is way more effective than other herbal cognitive enhancers. Some even compare it to the synthetic nootropic Piracetam.
If you’re taking just Bacopa Monnieri, don’t expect it to do wonders for your brain performance. It’s a team player, a potent natural nootropic that works best as part of a stack.
Bacosidess – the active compound in Bacopa Monnieri – increases kinase activity that leads to better signal transmission between neurons.
This happens mainly in the hippocampus area that’s responsible for the formation of long-term memory.
By targeting this part of the brain, the herbal nootropic aids memory formation and speedy recall of information.
For best results, take adequate amount of the nootropic, and use it non-stop for at least 3 months.
Dimethylaminoethanol Bitartrate (DMAE)
DMAE Bitartrate is added to BrainPlus IQ for one reason, and one reason only – to improve your memory.
This synthetic compound provides several cognitive and health benefits, but, its primary function is to act as the building blocks of the neurotransmitter that’s involved in memory formation and recall – acetylcholine.
Apart from stimulating the production of acetylcholine, the compound also increases the levels of choline – a precursor to acetylcholine – in the brain.
DMAE Bitartrate is added in the stack to improve memory formation, aid speedy access to stored information, boost creative thought, and enhance reasoning power. Evidence suggests that the compound can be used to treat ADHD, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.
More than physical fatigue, mental fatigue prevents people from achieving their goal in life.
Mental fatigue leads to lack of focus, lack of motivation, procrastination, and stress. The makers of BrainPlus IQ have added Vinpocetine to the mix to address these issues.
Vinpocetine improves neuron and overall mental health by boosting the supply of glucose, nutrient, and oxygen-rich blood to the encephalic area of the brain.
Stress is fast become a global problem, and BrainPlus IQ seems to have the perfect solution in Vinpocetine.
To address the stress problem, the natural nootropic rejuvenates the neurons, promotes the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, and influences the focus coeruleus region of the brain cell.
As we grow old, the neurons in cerebral cortex region get damaged, leading to memory loss and general cognitive decline.
By repairing the damaged neurons, the nootropic delays the symptoms of cognitive decline.
Other ingredients that form part of the BrainPlus IQ supplement include Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate, and Di-Calcium Phosphate.
Listing the substances that goes into making BrainPlus IQ isn’t enough.
The manufacturers do not specify the dosing of each ingredient either on the product or company website.
Disclosing how much each substance is used to make the mix is vital to convince an informed customer.
Not mentioning the exact dosage raises serious questions.
