Conclusion of Our Cerebral Success SmartX Review
We liked several things about Cerebral Success SmartX. The company website is very informative about the ingredients, and treatment benefits of this product. The product contains some research proven ingredients that are likely to provide some benefit to your cognitive processing, attention and focus. There is a 30 day guarantee and return policy, and discounts when you buy 2 or more bottles of capsules, and free shipping for 2 or more bottles ordered. We do have some not so positive comments to add however. Pricewise, a single bottle which provides only one month’s supply of capsules costs $65 and does not even include shipping. The guarantee is too short at only 30 days and does not seem to allow the return of opened bottles of capsules. The capsules contain beef gelatin and are not suitable if you are vegetarian or vegan. Since it contains gelatin, this supplement is unsuitable for vegetarians and vegans. We suggest you look for a better priced supplement, with a longer guarantee, that clearly allows the return of opened bottles of capsules.
