Since the Limitless movie arrived in the cinemas, many have searched for the “real limitless pill” that would enhance their brain performance, improve clarity, increase IQ, and create a photographic memory without causing any adverse side effects. While no supplement or smart drug can increase your IQ, nootropic stacks can dramatically boost your brain power.

And among them, one seems to stand out – Nootopia. There are three available options – Brilliance on Demand, Focused Ferocity, and World Domination and they are promoted as the next big thing in the biohacking niche. But is there any truth in that? I have decided to test all essential nootropic stacks from Nootopia for 30 days to find the truth. What I discovered was quite a shock!

nootopia nootropics review

Do Nootropics Work?

Before we dive into the Nootopia review, let’s first clarify if nootropics actually work and what to expect from them. If you ever read any Reddit posts about nootropics, you probably came across compounds like Modafinil, Adderall, and Ritalin. Sadly, these aren’t nootropics but are smart drugs for which you need a prescription.

Yes, those compounds are extremely potent but are rather risky to take. They often cause adverse side effects and don’t provide any long-term benefits (that is, to healthy individuals).

Nootropics, on the other hand, are compounds that:

  • Are non-toxic
  • Are safe for supplementation
  • Are legal
  • Improve memory and learning
  • Help you deal with stress and anxiety
  • Are neuroprotective
  • Boost cognition

It makes no sense to compare nootropics to smart drugs, but I have to point out that nootropics won’t deliver such potent short-term effects as prescription drugs such as Adderall. Not that you want such effects, but still…

Having said this, the most popular nootropics are Bacopa monnieri, rhodiola rosea, ashwagandha, lion’s mane mushroom, citicoline, and other nutraceuticals. Since you generally need to take nootropics for a few weeks to get the most out of them, many people (who stop taking them too early) don’t experience the full benefits.

But this changed with Nootopia formulas arriving on the market. These potent nootropic stacks may be the solution we have all been waiting for. Or are they?

What Is Nootopia?

Nootopia is a brand that sells some of the strongest nootropics on the market. Developed by Mark Alan Effinger (who calls himself “Mr. Noots”), the brand was later acquired by BiOptimizers, a popular US supplement company known for its rather aggressive marketing strategies.

Nootopia currently offers 9 different nootropic formulations that can be used individually or stacked together for better effects.

The formulations are:

  • Brain Flow
  • Focused Savagery
  • Nectar X
  • The Apex
  • Upbeat
  • Power Solution
  • Zamner Juice
  • Mental Reboot
  • Gabalicious

You can combine those different formulations into 4 main brain stacks:

  • Genius Activator (Nectar-X + Brain Flow)
  • The Neuro Primer (The Apex + Brain Flow)
  • Deep Work Support (Focused Savagery + Upbeat)
  • Social Command (Power Solution + Upbeat)

In addition, you can get Mental Reboot and Zamner Juice to support your stress, anxiety, and well-being.

All those formulations were developed to boost your cognitive functions, enhance focus and concentration, improve creativity, get in the flow, boost mood and reduce stress and anxiety.

By ordering Nootopia pills, you also receive the Brilliant Mind Blueprint, which is a simple guide to help you get the most out of the supplements. You will also get access to the free Nootopia app, which will help you track your progress and experience with individual stacks.

The brand also promises to personalize each stack to your individual needs, but as you will later see, this is probably not the case.

How Does The Process Work?

You can currently order three Nootopia stacks: World Domination ($399), Focused Ferocity ($299), or Brilliance On Demand ($129). If you subscribe, you will get an additional discount on the packages.

Based on the package you choose, you will get the following doses of nootropic stacks:


As you can see, Nootopia already pushes you to order at least Focused Ferocity and spend $299 (or $225 if you subscribe) on nootropics.

After you order your chosen stack, you will go through a questionnaire which will presumably help Nootopia personalize your stack.

After I spoke to several experts about that, everyone agreed that they probably can’t customize each stack since they would have to manufacture each product’s capsule for each person separately.

But since they don’t provide any data about the exact dosages of each individual nootropic stack (weird and risky, I know), they cannot prove they actually personalized each stack (and I cannot prove otherwise). Until we know more about that, let’s agree that it is highly unlikely that you will receive a different formula than me, but that doesn’t mean that their product is any worse.

Review Of Nootopia Products

I ordered Brilliance On Demand for my first test. Since my team and I are based in Europe, I knew it was going to be hard to get the products shipped here. Sadly, Nootopia uses illegal compounds (we’ll cover them soon) and don’t expose the dosages of the ingredients as it should be done according to the strict European standards. Actually, every supplement brand should make their formulas open-sourced and expose all of the ingredients and dosages if they care about trust.

Before we dive into reviewing each nootropic formula, let’s cover some other important facts you need to know.

Nootopia often uses “capsule-in-capsule” technology. This means that you can find a small capsule within the big capsules. They use this to “enhance the efficacy” of nootropics because the internal nootropics bypass your stomach acid and get directly into your bloodstream. We lack more scientific studies to confirm whether this is effective, but Nootopia definitely claims that.

The other important thing is that Nootopia contains various nootropics called “Omnipept.” After I wrote many emails to Mark, the founder, I got an explanation of what Omnipept is. Basically, they merged different racetams with herb extracts to increase the potency of racetams.

While I’m not a big fan of racetams for several reasons (here’s why), I was a bit skeptical at first. Not just because racetams are in the grey zone in the US and illegal in the European Union, but also because of the lack of research on these synthetic compounds.

But I still wanted to try those nootropic stacks, so let’s check out the nootropic stacks I received and my experience with them.

Brain Flow

Brain Flow is a nootropic supplement that helps to improve mental performance, provides all-day energy, and increases confidence.

Brain Flow

Its oil capsules contain the following nootropics:

  • SuperCelastrus (an extract of Celastrus Paniculatus)
  • Nandina extract
  • Guarana
  • Pregnenolone
  • Curcumin
  • Ginger
  • Omnipept-P
  • Omnipept-1
  • Black pepper
  • Piperine

Nootopia says that Brain Flow will provide smooth energy and increase your confidence. With that in mind, I have taken 2 capsules of Brain Flow on an empty stomach.

About an hour later, I noticed a mild energy kick that lasted for about 2-3 hours. This kick helped me get and stay in the flow for the mentioned period. I actually expected a stronger effect, but I was still posivitely surprised.

Keep in mind that Brain Flow comes in huge big capsules (000 size, if I am not mistaken), so the capsules are difficult to swallow.

Overall, I liked the effects of Brain Flow, but it’s definitely not a game changer. At least not on its own.

Focused Savagery

The second nootropic I tried was Focused Savagery. As the name says, this product was developed for deep focus and concentration, intense drive, and hyper-productivity. When I heard the expression “hyper-productivity,” I got slightly worried because whenever someone promised me I’d get hyper-productivity out of the supplement, I suffered from severe side effects, stomach pain, or headache.

Sadly, the same thing happened with Focused Savagery.

I took 1 capsule first thing in the morning, as suggested by Nootopia. About a 30-min later, I suffered from a severe headache. I felt like my head was going to explode, and there was intense pressure in my head.

I never expected to feel so badly, but it happened. Now, I have to admit that Nootopia put a warning into their blueprint saying that Focused Savagery is a very potent blend and you shouldn’t combine it with caffeine (which I didn’t). However, the headache was really strong (unlike anything I’ve experienced with nootropics so far), so I’ve decided not to try Focused Savagery again.

What are the ingredients in Focused Savagery that caused such an effect?

  • SuperCelastrus
  • Methyl B-100
  • L-tyrosine
  • Coleus forskohli
  • CDP-Choline
  • Caffeine and caffeine anhydrous
  • Guarana
  • Curcumin
  • Vitamins D3 + K2
  • Grape seed extract
  • Omnipept-N
  • Piperine
  • Cayenne

A potentially dangerous mix of l-tyrosine, lots of stimulants, and racetams probably caused the adverse side effects I experienced. I’ve talked to other nootropic experts who had a very similar experience, so I’m not the only one suffering from the adverse side effects.

If you decide to try Focused Savagery, take it with food, do not combine it with any other nootropic or stimulant, and hope for the best. I don’t recommend it to anxious and highly energetic people.

Nectar X

Nectar X is a nootropic stack that helps with energy, mental endurance, mental clarity, and neurogenesis. Unlike the other two stacks, Nectar X comes in powder, and you need to mix it with 24 oz of water. Nootopia recommends drinking half of it right away and the other half in the next 2 hours.

I’m not a fan of powder nootropics because they usually contain lots of unnecessary fillers and compounds (like artificial colors, sugar, etc.). I’m not aware of the exact ingredients in Nectar X (due to the lack of data from the brand), but based on this stack’s good taste, they must have added some artificial compounds in this nootropic formula.

My experience with Nectar X was quite positive. I got a mild energy boost in about 15 minutes after drinking half of Nectar X, which is much faster than with most other nootropics. I was in a positive mood and focused for about one and a half hours when I drank the other half of the drink.

Overall, the effects lasted for about 4 hours in total. I definitely recommend trying this nootropic drink if you want to enhance overall energy and mental clarity.

So, which are the ingredients responsible for such effects?

  • SuperCelastrus
  • Acetyl-l-carnitine
  • Vitamin B12
  • Uridine monophosphate
  • L-theanine
  • Citric acid
  • Caffeine Anhydrous
  • Phenylalanine
  • Arginine AKG
  • Rhodiola rosea
  • D-Ribose
  • Trimethylglycine
  • Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • Glutamine
  • Calcium Citrate
  • Monk fruit extract
  • Lemon extract
  • Ginger
  • Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
  • Maltodextrin
  • Omnipept-P
  • Omnipept-O
  • Omnipept-1

Yes, that’s an extensive list of nootropics for relatively mild but definitely noticeable effects.

If you want to boost your mental energy, I recommend trying Nectar X. For best results, I recommend combining it with other nootropics, which I’ll cover later.

The Apex

The Apex is a nootropic stack designed for an energy boost, stronger focus, calmness, and increased creativity. Nootopia recommends taking 1 capsule in the morning on an empty stomach.

Apex contains:

  • SuperCelastrus
  • Nandina extract
  • Methyl B-100
  • L-tyrosine
  • Uridine monophosphate
  • Coleus forskohli
  • Huperzine-A
  • CDP Choline
  • L-theanine
  • Guarana
  • Caffeine
  • Theacrine
  • Vitamin C
  • Grape seed extract
  • Omnipept-O
  • Piperine
  • Cayenne

Despite an impressive list of nootropics, the Apex doesn’t deliver any noticeable effects when taken on its own. I’ve tried it a few times, and despite a very mild (probably placebo) effect, nothing else happened.

Nootopia recommends taking Apex with buttered coffee which is the combo I haven’t tried yet.


Upbeat is one of the supplements in Nootopia that had a very positive effect on me from the first day I tested it. It was designed to improve mood, confidence, ambition, and positivity. I took 1 capsule first thing in the morning, and about an hour later, my mood noticeably improved. Once you are in a good mood, working becomes easier, you get more creative, and your productivity increases.

Here are the nootropics that make Upbeat effective:

  • SuperCelastrus
  • Nandina extract
  • Vitamin B12
  • L-tyrosine
  • Coleus forskohli
  • Huperzine-A
  • Caffeine
  • Theobromine
  • 5-HTP
  • Phenylalanine
  • Theacrine
  • Curcumin
  • Vitamin C
  • Grape seed extract
  • Omnipept-N
  • Piperine
  • Cayenne

The boost I got from Upbeat was just strong enough to feel the effects but not too strong to get anxious. That’s why I recommend trying Upbeat. This has been one of my favorite Nootopia nootropics so far.

Power Solution

Power Solution is probably the strongest nootropic stack from Nootopia that can boost mental stamina, mental clarity, and drive.

By taking it, Nootopia promises:

  • All-day energy without crashes
  • Maximum clarity and concentration
  • Elevated mood and positivity
  • “Insane” mental stamina that “feels limitless”

Many buzz words don’t really inspire optimism here, but Nootopia’s warning in their handbook means that Power Solution must be a very potent stack. As a matter of fact, it contains the following nootropics:

  • SuperCelastrus
  • Phosphatidylserine
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
  • Uridine monophosphate
  • Alpha GPC
  • Huperzine A
  • L-theanine
  • Citric Acid
  • Norvaline
  • Caffeine
  • Pregnenolone
  • Trimethylglycine
  • Acetyl-L-Cysteine
  • Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
  • Grapefruit extract
  • Maltodextrin
  • Pomegranate extract
  • Grape seed extract
  • Omnipept-P
  • Omnipept-O
  • Omnipept-1

Well, among many other nootropics, Power Solution contains 3 racetams which is quite risky. Now I understand why such a big warning is in the handbook!

Anyway, I’ve tested Power Solution, and I think it is an amazing stack. After drinking 1/4 of it, I soon got a strong energy hit that lasted for several hours. I was extremely energized, but I didn’t feel anxious or nervous. It is true that I had a hard time sitting down and working, but when I decided to do a workout, I nailed it.

I think the Power Solution is more of a pre-workout than a brain-boosting stack, but you need to try it out for yourself and see how it works on you.

Zamner Juice

Zamner Juice is the only spray supplement in the Nootopia product line that helps with positivity, verbal fluency, and boosting mood. For the best results, you need to spray 4-6 sprays of Zamner Juice in the morning upon wakening, before lunch, and mid-afternoon.

Zamner Juice contains the following nootropics:

  • SuperCelastrus
  • Nandina extract
  • L-tyrosine
  • Huperzine-A
  • L-theanine
  • Guarana
  • Caffeine
  • Monk fruit extract
  • Aquaspark
  • Omnipept-A
  • Kava 20x (alcohol extract)
  • Schizandrol
  • Xylitol
  • Pomegranate

This nootropic is similar to Upbeat in many ways, so you can choose one that you prefer. For me, this is Upbeat.

Mental Reboot

Mental Reboot is a stack that can boost your clarity and helps you to recover on your days off. It contains “brain cleaners” in the form of the morning dosage (AM) and an afternoon dosage (PM) that you should take an hour before sleep.

Mental Reboot

Mental Reboot can help with:

  • Well-being (it increases your joy and positivity)
  • Nervousness and jittery feeling
  • Clarity and sharpness
  • Faster learning

It contains the following nootropics:

  • Phosphatidylserine
  • CDP Choline
  • Vitamins D3 + K2
  • Acetyl l cysteine
  • Vitamin C
  • Chlorella
  • Cilantro leaf
  • Humic acid
  • Fulvic acid
  • Phenolic Acid
  • Black radish root
  • Triacetyluridine
  • Menaquinone-7
  • P-5-P- pyridoxal-5-phosphate

The idea that you need a nootropic on a day off sounds entirely wrong to me. As you can imagine, I’m not a big fan of this stack, and I don’t think you need it at all.


Gabalicious is a new stack developed by Nootopia to help you increase your GABA levels (hence, the name). The idea behind Gabalicious is to help you calm down and improve your mood. I’ve tested this powder a couple of times, and I honestly liked the effects, but I need more information about the product before I can recommend it.

Once I get more details, I will share them below.

Potent Stacks

As you can see, some individual Nootopia nootropic supplements are too strong, while others are not effective enough. That’s where nootropic stacks come in the game. The founders of Nootopia created 4 “breakthrough brain stacks” that can help you achieve the “god mode”, whatever this is supposed to mean.

Here are the stacks:

  • Genius Activator
  • Neuro Primer
  • Social Command stack
  • Deep Work Support

Genius Activator

This is a nootropic stack that can quickly boost your cognitive performance. If you need to work on advanced problems for several hours, this is a product to try. The Genius Activator consists of Nectar X and Brain Flow. Once you combine these two supplements, your productivity should skyrocket.

I really loved the Genius Activator stack. While Nectar X delivered no benefits on its own, when I combined it with Brain Flow, I got a powerful boost that lasted for many hours. I was productive, energized, and in the flow.

The more energy I had before taking Genius Activator, the more I liked and felt the effects, but even when I was tired, I felt modest effects.

Neuro Primer

This is the second brain stack that rejuvenates your brain during your work. It helps you boost your brain performance, may boost your memory, and help you get better every day. It may also promote neurogenesis – the production of new neurons.

Neuro Primer consists of the Apex and Brain Flow. It’s a decent stack, but I liked Genius Activator more.

Neuro Primer provides similar effects to Genius Activator, but it feels less potent. I felt slightly more creative when trying this custom blend, but it could have been just a placebo effect.

Overall this is a great stack that I recommend trying.

Social Command

The next stack is Social Command. According to Nootopia, this stack may help you with emotional intelligence and verbal fluency. If you work in sales or communications, you should definitely give it a try.

The Social Command stack consists of Power Solution and Upbeat. This is one of the most potent stacks I’ve ever tried. Even though it was made for improving communication, I think it works even better as a pre-workout stack.

If you take Social Command before going on a meeting, don’t make a mistake and drink coffee (or any other stimulants) at the meeting because this could cause anxiety or nervousness.

The Deep Work Support

Last but not least is the Deep Work Support. As the name says, this nootropic was designed to help you get hyper-focused. It boosts your mood, motivation, and focus so that you can focus on your highest goals. It consists of Upbeat and Focused Savagery.

You should try this stack, but I personally find it way too strong. Focused Savagery caused me a massive headache on its own, so I have no desire to combine it with another potent stack like Upbeat.

I like the idea behind this nootropic combo, but I believe Focused Savagery is too strong on its own, so I don’t believe many will like it.

So much about different nootropic stacks. Now let’s check the other benefits and things you need to know about Nootopia.


Nootopia’s app is a great idea to improve your experience with nootropics. I had the idea for such an app years ago, and I’m happy to see the first brand developing it.

The main features of the Nootopia app are:

  • You can see an entire 30-day journey with nootropics
  • You can take notes which will help you understand later which nootropics work well for you and which not
  • You get all the crucial information about individual nootropics and various custom blends
  • You get tips for optimizing your experience

The app works well, and I enjoyed using it during my test. I think it’s an excellent add-on for people using Nootopia’s products for the first time. However, once you know which stacks work the best for you, I don’t believe many will continue using the app.


The price of Nootopia’s products is quite high, so you must be smart when choosing the right package. They offer three different packages:

  • World Domination
  • Focused Ferocity
  • Brilliance On Demand

Please check the image to see the exact difference between the packages. The brilliance On Demand ($77 for the first month, $97 after) is the best starting package for most people to get an idea of how their products work.

Focused Ferocity ( $225 for the first month, $249 after) is the best option for long-term use, in my opinion, because you get all the products you need (and a few that you probably don’t need).

World Domination ($297 for the first month, $349 after) is best for occasional use when you know you will have a challenging month in front of you.

Nootopia promotes their insane retail price, but they don’t really sell their supplements at such a high price. I can imagine many people fall for such marketing tactics, but if you are my follower, please don’t.

Overall, Nootopia has by far the most expensive nootropic stacks on the market. The biggest issue is that you cannot just order one of their stacks or combos (like Nectar X and Brain Flow), but you always have to buy the complete package.

Pros And Cons

Let’s first cover the PROs of Nootopia’s nootropics:

  • Extremely potent
  • Effective
  • Come with an app and a guidebook
  • Partly personalized
  • Pleasant tasting powders
  • Multiple formulas

How about the cons?

  • Dosages are not listed
  • Not completely personalized
  • They contain racetams which are illegal in most countries
  • Some nootropics cause severe side effects
  • Lack of studies and data on Omnipept
  • Very expensive
  • Long-term safety questionable
  • Radical marketing approach

So, what’s my final verdict about Nootopia?


I have mixed feelings about Nootopia. On the one hand, they provide extremely potent nootropic stacks, unlike anything else I’ve ever tested. On the other hand, I doubt that those stacks are particularly safe for long-term use. They don’t disclose dosages (a big red alert), they use aggressive marketing techniques, and I believe they don’t provide completely personalized nootropics as they claim.

Here is what I think – if you need to cover your peaks and are searching for a potent stack, you should try Nootopia. Their various stacks will give you the promised effects that will help you get over your most demanding days.

But if you are searching for a nootropic stack for daily use, I’d look elsewhere (click here for a great alternative). Lack of transparency is too big of a problem to trust Nootopia’s stacks as your daily mental boosters.

So that’s that. Will I ever retake Nootopia? Yes, I definitely will, but will I take it daily for the next months? Not at all.

I hope I have covered everything you wanted to know. Should you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
