Inteligen Reviews | Powerfull Nootropic or Scam?

Inteligen is a natural supplement launched at the beginning of 2016 that claims to enhance the  memory, increase the energy, and boost your intelligence and focus. It promises to give the brain a real workout through a combination of nutrients, amino acids and vitamin B6. Just about the average promise of any brain booster.
inteligen_reviews_300x287When the going gets tough, your memory, focus and energy might get going. Our brains decrease in volume at a 5 percent rate every 10 years after 40. Cognitive decline onset happens at as early as 30 and the most affected brain function is memory. Luckily, modern science has designed a few helpers when it comes to declining cognitive abilities due to aging in the form of nootropics. Nootropics, also known as smart pills or brain boosters, are substances in the form of drugs or supplements that improve the functionality of the brain, enhance memory, concentration, energy and mood. Nootropics improve brain function and performance in day-to-day activities, whether it is at school, at your job, sports or simply remembering where you left your keys or to buy milk. They help us think faster, remember facts and faces, make associations, have more energy, be more active, do more things and do them faster and better.

You’ll be jumping for joy in no time. Many healthy people resort to natural supplements as these can easily be ordered online without a prescription and they give them the exact boost in productivity they need. Forget about losing your keys or not being able to stay on the task. Well, that is if you can, because health supplements not only make you work faster and more efficiently, but also improve your memory so you won’t forget a single thing. Learning new tricks will be so much easier.

We live in a fast-paced competitive world, so when we are told even top CEOs, executive leaders and professional athletes use health supplements to give them that extra edge, why wouldn’t you?

What Was Inteligen Intended For?

Inteligen can help maintain normal levels of acetylcholine, also known as the learning neurotransmitter due to its role in memorizing facts. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that facilitates intercellular communication. As we age, the levels of acetylcholine decline and this leads to memory loss. Inteligen will help you retain information for longer periods and retrieve it quickly when needed.

The supplement promises to reduce mental fatigue. When your brain feels energized, it is more alert, more willing to engage in various tasks and more creative when it comes to carrying them out. An alert mind, clear of brain fog, is less prone to depression. The longer this state lasts, the longer it is to snap out of it and depression can set in. It is widely recognized that depressed people are also more likely to suffer from a variety of health conditions, from heart problems to obesity. When you are in a good mood, you are more efficient and productive. You become more active, which leads to better circulation, which in turn means less inflammation in the body so less pain. The benefits of brain boosters to your life are far-reaching, mainly when you feel drained, you aren’t in the mood to be active or cheerful.

Your productivity levels will peak. You will be able to process more information and at a faster rate. Multi-tasking will no longer seem challenging, you’ll be able to focus on the task at hand without  being distracted.

The supplement promises even to make you smarter. No brain booster can lift your IQ though, but rather enhance your productivity and sharpness and make you feel more in control over your cognitive abilities.

The manufacturers try to get you to join the club by sharing that more than 14 million capsules have been sold. This means that those customers are already smarter, more focused, more energized and in a better mood than you.

Inteligen Ingredients

The manufacturers claim that the brain booster contains 100 percent natural non-GMO and gluten-free ingredients. Moreover, the product is caffeine-free, which means you won’t experience that energy crash mid-day. Many supplement manufacturers try to conceal the ineffectiveness of their product by adding a lot of caffeine that will give you an instant energy boost that will leave you exhausted later.

  • Bacopa Monnieri: is a herb used in India for thousands of years and renowned for its ability to increase memory and concentration. It also relaxes the mind and destroys free radicals. Studies conducted by the Center for Human Psychopharmacology suggested that Bacopa improves memory and that it enhances cognitive performance.
  • Vinpocetine: is thought to increase blood flow which ensures your brain gets all the oxygen and nutrients it needs, prevents brain damage and improve
  • Ginkgo Biloba: is one of the most popular medicinal plants in the world that’s been around for more than 5,000 years. It improves memory and cognition thanks to increased blood circulation which brings much-needed oxygen and nutrients to the brain. It helps prevent brain damage resulting from free radicals or the improper detoxification of the brain by boosting blood circulation. Ginkgo helps prevent memory loss, including in Alzheimer’s patients, and is recommended for headaches, mood swings as well as hearing and concentration problems. However, clinical findings are split, as some studies like the one published in the journal Psychopharmacology in 2000 and the one published in the journal Human Psychopharmacology in 2001 found that ginkgo improved attention and memory. However, a 2002 report published in Psychopharmacology Bulletin reviewed a number of studies on ginkgo in healthy people and found no conclusive evidence that it improved mental abilities.

Other affiliated websites also mention it contains acetyl-l-carnitine, an ingredient which is thought to help alleviate the effects of aging like chronic fatigue and cognitive decline, to increase alertness, repair neuronal damage and protect neurons. It is a natural amino acid involved in energy production. This amino acid also plays a role in the treatment of Alzheimer’s, age-related memory loss, depression and poor circulation. Some websites say Inteligen also contains vitamin B6, which helps the body convert food into energy and also helps the body fight infections. B6 deficiency can lead to depression, anemia and skin problems. Bottomline, the Inteligen ingredients can be found in many other brain boosters.

There is no product label on the website, which is a big red flag for a health supplement, so there’s no guarantee of the dosage of each ingredient to make sure they can yield the stated benefits or that there are no surprise ingredients. It’s most likely that a different dosage was used in the particular clinical trials than is found in the supplement. Also, since we cannot find the full list of ingredients, we cannot be sure if the product is suitable for vegetarians since some capsules are made with gelatin, which is an animal by-product.

No scientific evidence is mentioned about the benefits the ingredients could bring which doesn’t contribute much to the overall credibility of the product. Most supplement manufacturers did their homework and carefully chose their formula and are quite proud to display the clinical evidence that makes their product stand out and differentiate itself from the numerous competitors. Credibility is crucial for prescription free, available only online supplements that are not regulated by the federal Food and Drugs Administration (FDA). The FDA only intervenes where there have been too many complaints about a product.

Inteligen Side Effects

Each user reacts differently to supplements and it also depends if there are any existing medical conditions. Inteligen is not suitable for pregnant women. Best to consult a health practitioner before taking this product. This is even more important if you’re already taking some medication, because for example if you’re taking blood-thinning drugs such as any nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs) like aspirin or ibuprofen, this may cause excessive bleeding.

Some of the ingredients of this brain booster are known to have some potential effects, but we don’t have the full list of ingredients. Bacopa Monnieri might cause stomach cramps, nausea, upset stomach, dry mouth, and fatigue. Vinpocetine’s potential side effects include nausea, stomach pain, sleep disorders, dizziness, headache, irritability, and flushing of the face. Ginkgo can cause accelerated heartbeat and allergic skin reactions. Carnitine can sometimes make the urine, breath, and sweat smell fishy.


The product is available only online. The official website cannot be accessed at the moment which is rather suspect, because we cannot check the terms and conditions for any hidden auto ship plans or tricky return requirements. There is also a network of affiliates which cannot seem to be able to agree regarding the ingredients of the product: some only mention three, others say five. The problem with affiliates is that they can resort to over-the-top advertising that reduces the credibility of the product and the customers’ trust in it. When you read how this magic pill will help you use not just 10 percent of your brain, but unleash its full potential, and boost your intelligence, you become a bit skeptical. Also, if you’re quite familiar with the world of supplement manufacturers, you might be less impressed by the same marketing strategies that create this sense of urgency to purchase their product while this excellent offer lasts and for which you’ve been carefully selected among the lucky few. These tricks are not very likely to work on you.


It’s recommended to take 1 or 2 capsules a day with a glass of water, either in the morning and in the evening or when the mental effort is at its peak. A bottle will guarantee a month’s supply if you take two capsules a day.


The product comes with a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not happy with the results less S&H charges and a $5 per-unit restocking fee. However, several customers complained about having difficulty to reach the customer support or getting a return number or about not receiving the refund.

Customer Reviews

There are very few customer reviews online, which is not surprising given that it’s a relatively new product launched only at the beginning of the year. It’s not very surprising either that most of the reviews are negative because most customers tend to take action and leave a review when something went wrong. They wouldn’t usually take the time to praise a product for its unique qualities. Most reviews complain about the poor customer service, being sent the wrong product of a different brand, and not receiving the guaranteed full refund. Customer service somehow managed to come up with an excuse not to grant it.

As the product is sold through a network of affiliates which receive a commission from every order so most positive reviews are more likely fake. You’ll read a very personal narrative by someone who had problems at work because of their lack of focus and low energy, then about the wonders that happened in their life as a result of taking this magic pill, only to find out towards the end that you are only a click away from your purchase. Would you trust reviews listed on a website that makes money from every click?


Bottom Line

We liked that the supplement contains natural ingredients found in many health supplements and that some are backed up by clinical studies, although the affiliates don’t seem to bother to dig out the evidence and present it to potential customers for additional credibility. We also like that its ingredients are non-GMO and gluten-free and are safe for most users, with little to no side effects.

We didn’t like that we couldn’t find the product’s label to check the full ingredients and dosage which is a big red flag for supplement manufacturers. We also didn’t like some of the over-the-top claims made by the affiliated websites like how the product is going to make you smarter or help you use 100 percent of your brain. The fake positive reviews and concerning negative ones also made us wonder how efficient this product is, but that just comes with the territory.

    InteliGEN Scam?
    I just found out about InteliGEN and while it may be a legitimate dietary supplement, I was disturbed by the way I found out about it: through a phishing email, the sender supposedly being one of my friends. It was not sent by my friend. If the InteliGEN company is “marketing” in this manner, this is a real red flag for me. As mentioned above, the lack of a product label and list of ingredients is also a red flag, so I’m going to say “No thanks” until there is more information on the legitimacy of the product, to say nothing about its safety.

    The morning after I’d taken my second Inteligen pill, I saw that my face was bright red, swollen, and hot to the touch. I am quite certain that this is an allergic reaction to St. John’s wort. Do you think this fake outfit will refun my “Best buy” of three bottles of this infernal product?

      Also, sounds like symptoms of a Niacin reaction. Inteligen might have Niacin. Although Niacin is good for you, some people can’t handle as much of it, as others. I have no opinion about Inteligen, as I have never used it, nor researched it. If the you encounter those symptoms again, immediately drink a glass or two of water, and the redness should go away. If no change, consult a doctor.

    I ordered this Inteligen after being contacted on the internet. Their sales pitch was so fast, inviting me to try a “free bottle” a pay just $4..95 US for shipping so I gave it a try. They didn’t mention that if I didn’t cancel my order after 14 days they’d bill my credit card for the full price of $79.85 US. I sent them an email cancelling my order about 2 weeks after receiving it and called them but they refused to refund the money for the so called “free bottle”. I would warn everyone to avoid being scammed by this heartless company.

      you are right what a way to promote immortality and if your head turns swollen and red what is that all about

      You are better off with a couple of chunks of chocolate with over 85% cacao and eating wallnuts and other nuts eating broccolli and nice fresh apples then some delicious honey

      just the normal foods bro instead of the fat foods from supermarkets

      Get a pomme granate and get a handfull of those red things and cook them in a pan with bottled water and drink the extract every single day for 1 year your vains become more strong

      That is good stuff

      If this was such the great brain drug as advertised I’m sure doctors would be using it for patients with Alzheimer’s and the like.

    I just received an email off a family member of the link to Intelligen and i thought wow sounds pretty impressive. I am just doing some research and before and I’m just wanting to know exactly whats in this pill? They give you four plant based ingredients but that it? Where is the full ingredients of of this pill? Im pretty sceptical of this and need more information and reviews of this product. If anyone has an info please reply.

    I agree with all the comments here. I actually called them on the carpet about my concerns with how they tracked my email at work and the deceitfulness of the website. They have no labels showing the ingredients, they deceitfully charge your credit card which I was able to catch unto quickly and are using big names in the community stating they used it and had amazing results. Not true.

    Apart from the manner of selling which has been already mentioned, I started taking it with hopes that it might assist my brain. I have ME/CFS.
    After starting my second bottle I realise that my brain hadn’t improved (cognition memory etc.)
    I found I got more irritable and depression occurred more frequently.
    I have now stopped taking it. I have 3= unused bottles if anyone wants them !!

    People do not bother with them ever. They are thieves. You make out an order for one delivery and after that, they begin to send you every month at a very expensive price.

    Oh dear.
    I might have fallen into their trap. I ordered a 30 day trial of this product back in February 2017. It arrived no problem and i have just started to take it (only had one so far).
    I received another email the other day to say i had ordered some further tablets to give the brain a kind of detox and they would charge my card. I do not remember ordering this and have contacted the company via email to stop any further charges to my account without my express permission.
    I am waiting for a reply and hopefully they will not continue charging my card otherwise i will have to contact my bank to put a block on this company.

    Hello guys
    I’m being a more victim of personnel, getting a sample and I’m being charged every month for the product, which does not work. I can no longer contact them for reimbursement and so far nothing.
    The worst that I did not authorize the purchase during these months, this characterizes a crime.
    So please do not fall into this trap !!!

    IntelliGEN supplement is a scam.
    I also was taken in by reference to use by several notable American leaders.
    I am disappointed in myself for believing in this fake supplement.
    The CSR was difficult when finally reached.
    Your Credit Card is continually and automatically charged after initial purchase unless you advocate to be removed from all lists as a customer.
    I recall the thought,’ if something sounds too good to be true, it may not be true.’

    I purchased 5 bottles in January and today my docotr said I have too many heavy metals in my system and have been having a lot of stomach issues. Take a look at the ingredients and the metals included. I called Intelligen. Told them I had one unopened bottle remaining and the reason for returning it. They refused to credit me for the final bottle. Had a canned speech and were quite effective at ending the conversation and hanging up! You have 30 days to reutrn it if unhappy with one bottle and 60 days for returning more than one. Beware of this product! can’t say whether I have a better memory, better brain health, or better memory. I do have an upset stomach and a very expensive vitamin pill.

    Apparently the folks writing their ad copy are not taking InteliGen or it has made them dumber. Their Indiegogo campaign (shame on Indiegogo for even allowing an already formed scammer into their program…) is what triggered my interest. The ad is FULL of spelling, grammar, and contextual mistakes. Their references to famous people who supposedly endorse their product are also likely intentionally misspelled; i.e. “Steven Hawkings”.
    Apparently, they think or know that Stephen Hawking and/or his entity will sue them where other celeb’s like Anderson Cooper and Donald Trump won’t/don’t have the time or wherewithall, choosing to simply ignore such illegal profiteering on their name/brand.

    Not that I am a follower but I can’t imagine it would be too terribly hard to look back in Trump’s tweet history to see if he really did tweet about their product.

    Far too many red flags flying to do anything more than come to sites like this and confirm such a scam and avoid losing time or money on it. What trips me out is this product has supposedly been out since the first of 2016… How have they not been sued into oblivion, exposed by investigative reporting, and otherwise negative reviews out of existence? Maybe too many people are already taking their product and its actual purpose is to make people dumber and more gullible?!

      Oops – MAJOR EDIT – I have found out that Indiegogo did NOT source their ad. Just another scamming marketing technique!!

      Beware of deceptive marketing! Come to sites like this one to verify before getting invested into any suspect product or service!
