Conclusion of Our Brain Awake Review
We found some positive aspects to this product. It contains some beneficial ingredients that may contribute to some clearer cognitive and focus improvements. The product is sold with free shipping included. On the less positive side we do have some concerns about this product. There is a scary warning on the product label about a cancer causing chemical in the product. Since the product contains gelatin, it is not suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The manufacturer did not offer any new customer incentives or bulk purchase discounts. At $23 for a 20 day supply, this is not a cheap supplement to purchase. There is no guarantee or return policy offered by the manufacturer. Dosage instructions are a bit vague. The manufacturer did not stipulate if the 3 softgels should be consumed as one dose or throughout the day. There is no assurance that the product is made an FDA certified facility, that its ingredients are non GMO, or that it is free from fillers and binders. In terms of reviews, many were less than positive with people saying they saw no results or others experienced side effects such as headaches. For all these reasons we are not recommending this supplement. Look for one with a reliable guarantee, a competitive price, bulk buying discounts, safer ingredients, and more positive reviews.
