What Is ADDTabz?

ADDTabz is a nootropic / brain booster pill produced by a US-based company named Lexium International (though the product has previously been branded under the company “Gentech Pharmaceutical”). At the time of writing this review, Lexium Inernational have a Better Business Bureau rating of F – there are no customer complaints filed against the company.

This product is only available via the official Lexium website (www.laxiuminternational.com). We have not been able to locate this product on Amazon or GNC.

One bottle of ADDTabz contains 40 tablets, costs $69 and will last users for exactly 40 days.

This product is targeted towards those who are looking to improve their brain performance, more specifically students/scholars who are looking for a herbal alternative to the often-misused ADD drug named Adderall.

Consumers are told that ADDTabz is “scientifically proven” to produce effects such as improved memory, recall and knowledge-retention, boosted energy levels and improved focus and concentration.

Does ADDTabz Work?

Based on our research into this product we think that it likely can produce some cognitive enhancement for users, but we also think that the abilities of ADDTabz has been greatly exaggerated, as a results we do not believe it will work exactly as described on the website.

Firstly, on the positive side, ADDTabz is highly likely to improve your focus and concentration levels. Furthermore, it’s highly likely to boost your energy levels and reduce mental fatigue – these are the primary cognitive enhancement effects that will be provided to users of ADDTabz.

However, as with most nootropic supplements, there is always some exaggeration when it comes to the manufacturers description of the product.

Firstly, we have found no conclusive evidence to support the claims that ADDTabz can help improve your memory and “knowledge-retention”. We also do not believe it’ll be able to speed up your thought processing abilities or stimulate creativity.

This product contains a large amount of stimulants (some potentially dangerous). These same stimulants are what produce the cognitive enhancement effects we described earlier, however it is important to note that these effects will not be guarantee for every single consumer. What’s more, the effects may diminish with sustained usage as you gradually build a tolerance to the formula.

The Pros & Cons Of ADDTabz

Below we’ve listed everything we like and dislike:

The Pros

  • May help improve user focus and concentration levels.
  • Contains Folic Acid which can contribute towards normal brain function.

The Cons

  • This product shares no similarities to Adderall and is certainly not an alternate.
  • Contains a potentially dangerous stimulant known as Synephrine.
  • Product is unlikely to improve your memory, ability to recall or thought processing speeds.

Are There Any ADDTabz Reviews From Customers?

We have found the following ADDTabz review testimonials via customers online:

I saw absolutely no benefit from this product. As someone who genuinely uses adderall to study, this product is not even close. Do not waste your money

I got a boost of energy and felt a bit more alert, but was also very jittery, which distracted me from studying.

Our Final Verdict On ADDTabz

To conclude our ADDTabz review, it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by.

While we like how this product will likely help improve your cognition (focus and concentration), we are never a fan of supplements that claim to be an effective alternative to a drug; in this case, ADDTabz is marketed as a direct alternate to the ADD drug Adderall. As Adderall is typically misused by students and scholars looking for brain-boosting effects, we feel that the manufacturers Lexium International have gone out of their way to make this product seem like a miracle study pill – which it is not.

Remember to set your expectations for this product – consumers of ADDTabz are unlikely to experience any immediate improvement in their memory or recall abilities.

It is also worth noting that this product also contains a potentially dangerous stimulant named Synephrine. If you do decide to use this product, we highly recommend you speak to your doctor prior to usage, to ensure you’re not going to have nasty (and potentially fatal) side effects.
