TruBrain has received 3.45 / 5 stars on the Better Business Bureau website, garnering it a grade of “B.” There are four reviews total, two positive, two negative. On HighYa, truBrain receives 3 / 5 stars.
It appears that most online reviews of truBrain are critical, and the product has received few five-star reviews. The positive reviews, which comprised about half of all reviews, tend to say the product works as advertised: reviewers who consume truBrain drinks and capsules as directed experienced increased mental endurance, better memory, and were able to focus for longer periods of time than they had before without any negative side effects.
On the other hand, many customers seemed frustrated that their subscriptions didn’t arrive on time, or didn’t arrive at all, and refunds were difficult to attain in these circumstances. These complaints were not addressed by the business on the BBB website. Furthermore, a significant number of reviewers stated that the product did not result in any noticeable improvement to their mental energy, or that the improvement was quite slight relative to the cost. Some reviewers noted negative side effects including dizziness and increased irritability.
A few reviewers question the validity of the studies truBrain ran in order to test their product, critiquing the study’s small sample size, lack of a placebo control group, and optimistic interpretation of the EEG test results.
Overall, reviews of the truBrain boxes were mixed at best.
According to the truBrain website, the box ships 3-7 business days after the order is placed.
Shipping is free within the United States, and costs $10 per box to deliver to Canada.

Based out of Santa Monica, California, Chris Thompson began the nootropics company truBrain in 2012. Nootropics are intended to improve focus, rather than alertness, and thus improve cognition over time more effectively than caffeine-based energy drinks.
In 2014, the company launched the first ever nootropics beverage and has successfully sold the product in over fifty countries worldwide. Beginning with a mere $180,000 investment, the company has now grown to $13.5 million revenue run rate, with revenue increasing by an average of 20% every single month.
In an episode of CNBC’s Power Lunch, Thompson elaborates on the nature of the product and its potential for long-term success.
