The MaxSynapse supplement has actually taken me completely by surprise. I am so used to reviewing websites that are so obviously SCAMS that honestly, I was pleasantly surprised to finally find one that actually looks genuine. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it really is, but they certainly do not have the obvious signs that others do. The website is fresh, informative, and straightforward minus all of the extra exaggeration of the rest. Not to mention that they do not guarantee anything, which is key when it comes to supplements as there is no way a supplement to actually guarantee its effectiveness due to the fact of how little most ingredients are actually researched.
With that said, I never go with my first impression, especially with supplement websites. I want to go through all of their claims and make sure that there is nothing that is amiss.
What is MaxSynapse?
This is a natural supplement developed to help enhance your brain function in a safe and effective way. It is developed by UltraMax Health, as per the official website, an industry leader in cognitive function products. I don’t quite remember ever reviewing any of their other products but will definitely get on top of that.
The product is developed to:
- Improve your focus and concentration
- Sharpen your short and long term memory
- Stabilize your mood
- Support healthy brain functions
It consists of a number of nootropics that help improve the function of the neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine by means of cholinergic acid receptors and through the stimulation of NMDA glutamate receptors. These receptors are critical to your memory and learning process. Nootropics are also known to have a major influence over neurological and vascular functions all the while increasing your cognitive function. They are also known to provide your brain and body with a natural source of energy which enables you to stay more motivated and alert throughout the day.
The ingredients in this supplement help enhance your ability to stay focused and think better in the short term as well as provide your brain with the essential protective benefits that support cerebral health for long-term memory. Overall, your mood, short and long term memory, and reaction time will be improved. By naturally boosting the production of acetylcholine in the brain it helps promote better neurotransmitter function.
What is in Max Synapse?
One thing I LOVED about this website is that it went into great detail on the ingredients in addition to how it works. Not only did they provide a list of ingredients with some details on them, sources, and even more details on some of them, but in their Ingredients link in the menu you are also provided with a supplement facts sheet. The only thing I didn’t understand is why it is not in English and the fact that the ingredients listed do not necessarily match those that they have provided, at least not at first glance.
The formula in this supplement consists of the NZ-405 SupermaxBlend which is superficially engineered using some of the most sought after ingredients at the ideal amounts. I will not go into detail of what is already found in the website as far as the listed ingredients but will provide some more information about those that are listed in the Supplement Facts image. What worries me is that it really is not necessarily a supplement facts sheet that you would find on the back of a bottle but rather a created list, again, not providing ALL of the ingredients:
- Flos Lonicerae – 160 mg
- Fructus Chanomelis – 32 mg
- Polyporus – 80 mg
- Radix Glycyrrhizae – 80 mg
- Rhizoma Imperatae – 80 mg
- Rhizoma Paridis – 160 mg
- Rhizoma Smilacis – 240 mg – I couldn’t find any real detailed information about its effects on brain function
- Seme Coicis – 80 mg
- Semen Plantaginis – 32 mg
- Additional Blended Herbs – 320 mg
So, what did I learn from this list of Supplement Facts? Actually, a lot and very little at the same time. In their website they discuss the ingredients in depth and even give sources yet the ingredients listed here have nothing to do with the ingredients they have provided. Not sure if this is a mistake on their side where they posted a Supplement Facts image from a different product by the same company or are simply sure that most people won’t even bother to look it up. Either way, I have found several ingredients to actually be effective and safe which I think is more than I can say for most other similar supplements. Most of the ingredients are ancient Chinese herbs that are used in Chinese Medicine and there is very little information that I could come up with, and most are not found in WebMD where I usually research the popular ingredients.
How to Buy MaxSynapse?
They impressed me here as well. What I liked is that they offer you several options to buy as well as an auto-ship program option which they are very open about. There are no hidden terms and no hidden charges, everything is out in the open. Even though I am no fan of the auto-ship programs, I can appreciate the openness of it all.
- 3 Bottles – $49 each – $147 Total
- 6 Bottles – $44 each – $264 Total
- 1 Bottle – $59 – Auto-Ship Program – Charged $59 + $4.95 shipping and handling every month until you cancel as part of their VIP Select Club. Guaranteed supply every month.
I have to admit, that yes, though the individual prices are low, they don’t offer an option where you simply buy a bottle and not get stuck in an auto-ship program. Though I am sure you can easily cancel your next bottle from being shipped, it’s an accident waiting to happen. Make sure that if you order the single bottle, as I recommend so you aren’t stuck with a bunch of bottles of a product you in the end may not be taking, make sure that you read over the terms and are prepared with the consequences if you do not cancel.
I think that this product may be safe and effective but definitely keep an eye on those ingredients as they do make me worry a bit. I have researched high and low to see more accurate information on exactly what is in the supplement but to no avail. If one of you orders MaxSynapse please share your experience below and if possible take a snapshot of the Supplement Facts on the back of the bottle to confirm exactly what is in it.
