Imagine popping one ‘smart pill’ and suddenly becoming the most productive person at your job.

Within a few weeks of taking the pill you get a promotion…

Then a month later you get another promotion.

Your co-workers start calling you ‘Superman’, and before you know it you’re running the joint.


That’d be nice. Right? Well, that’s essentially what the product Accelleral promises to do for you.

This ‘Breakthrough Brain Enhancing’ pill is being sold as a fast-acting ‘Adderall replacement’.

Check out this advertisement I recently came across.

Accelleral scam is said to be an adderall replacement

But is Accelleral legit? Or is it just another bogus product being marketed in the scammiest way possible?

I’m gonna share everything you need to know about Accelleral, and blast it for what it is. So hang tight, we’re gonna have a little fun.

What is Accelleral?

Accellerol cognitive brain formula

Supposedly it’s a memory enhancer brain-booster that will change your life on a dime if you’ll only give it a try.

According to a breaking ‘news story’ about Accelleral…

The fake brain booster Accelleral promises to boost memory and concentration

Fake marketing behind Accelleral

Just the other day I was served an advertisement that looked a helluva lot like breaking news from a reputable site.

Accelleral faked a news story on Business Insider

So I did what most people would do, I clicked in to read the news. And here’s what I saw…

Accelleral fake news story


At first glance, it looks harmless enough. But I’ve been doing this long enough to know better. This is just the tip of the ‘scam-berg’, if you will.

This is becoming a HUGE problem. So many good people are being scammed out of their hard-earned money by fake products that don’t work.


AARP is one of many reputable sources now warning their readers of this possibility. (Ironically enough, I’ve been served ads by AARP for similar product scams… but that’s neither here nor there).

FDA warns of scams like Accelleral

But what should you be looking out for? And how do you know Accelleral is one of these scams?

Well, let’s take a closer look at the Accelleral advertisement and have a look at some common themes you’ll find in fake articles, or ‘Farticles’.

Common themes to look out for in scams like Accelleral

#1 – Notice that fake URL? Go ahead and type it in your browser, it’ll take you nowhere. That’s because it’s not a news site at all, it’s simply a landing page that cannot be tracked to an owner.

#2 – Very ‘newsy’ headline in look and tone. Accelleral uses the tried-and-true scam-tactic of name-dropping prominent figures to catch our attention, and a little mystery to keep us reading. What IS Carson’s discovery?! And damn right I should have access to it!

Scams like Accelleral use fake headlines promising the world

#3 – A picture of Ben Carson himself. We’ll see this scam-tactic used all throughout the ‘news story’.

#4 – More BS to keep us on the edge of our seats. Ben Carson is a doctor after all, so if he says it’ll be ‘the biggest event in human history’, we should listen up!

#5 – Ben Carson now credits his incredible focus to a specific brain booster. What ever could it be? 


By this point, we’re hooked. What is this breakthrough brain booster? What is Ben’s discovery? And how can I get MY hands on it?

They pull us deeper into the story, dropping even more celeb names (this time Bill O’Reilly) and even include a super-generic video about brain pills that says nothing about Accelleral.

Accelleral exposed

As we read on we come across even more name dropping, this time accompanied with BOLD claims about the product’s effectiveness.

The ‘news story’ says…

“Everyone that has taken this, from athletes like Tom Brady to actors like Robert De Niro have nothing but praise for the brain booster, which doubles IQ, skyrockets energy levels and connects areas of the brain not previously connected. Accelleral works so well for these guys, we had to ask… Is it safe?”

Hell no it’s not safe! (But we’ll get to that in a bit).

Sheesh, these claims are so ridiculous that I wonder how anyone falls for it. I mean, Tom Brady and Robert De Niro?

It’s like they just Googled “famous celebrities and sports stars” and pulled from the top of the list. So little effort. Tisk, tisk. 

Accelleral exposed as a scam. Tom Brady does not take the brain boosting pill.

BUT… people are falling for it.

Because it’s human nature to strive to be smarter, more focused, more energized, and better all around. In other words, we want everything that Accelleral is selling. We want it to be true.

Moving right along…

At this point, I’m sure you’re wondering who’s the brainchild (or brainchildren) behind this miracle pill?

Well Harvard Scientists of course!

Accelleral claims Harvard Scientists created this brain booster

They go on to add a few fake testimonials for fake social proof. Works every time. Then, why not add an image of a couple more celebrities for good measure?

Accelleral exposed

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say this pill does NOT work for an ordinary person like me.

Also, thanks Accelleral for doing me a solid and updating the story on July 14… AKA the VERY DAY I’m reading it!

Seriously, check it out… some may call it a coincidence. I call it a scam-wincidence.

Oh, and btw, Denzel Washington endorses the product too. Go figure.

Accelleral fake news exposed

Also, they claim “CNN broke the news first and uncovered that Accelleral raises levels of focus and performance every day by 300%.”

Ha! Well, I took the liberty to do a quick search for “CNN + Accelleral.”

CNN never wrote about Accelleral. It's a lie

And guess what? I got NO results. Zip, zero, zilch, nothing!

OK, well I did get something… I got this Forbes article all about how fake news articles are using billionaires to market their products. Talk about Irony! (Forbes has served me similar ads in the past, too).

Forbes writes an article about how Fake News articles and lies are used to market iffy products like Accelleral

The ad goes on to show a photo of Stephen Hawking, who supposedly has “admitted to using Accelleral to triple his memory.”

What’s that I smell? Is that some more Accelleral bullshit?

Accelleral is not endorsed by celebrities like Stephen Hawking because it is a scam

As we scroll down toward the bottom of the ad, fake Bill O’Reilly shares his fake experience taking Accelleral. He gives us a play-by-play of his 14-day experience with the product, which is 100% glowing of course. And sums it up by saying…

Accelleral claims that Bill O'Reilly tried the product, but he did not

Riiiiiight. Thanks Billy.

I mean, seriously, who do they think they are fooling?

I am sure some people fell for it and believed Bill O’Reilly actually endorsed the product, but using a little deductive reasoning should tell you that he probably has bigger fish to fry and wouldn’t put his name on something like that.

Now the moment of truth. They try to sell us on a ‘Risk Free Trial’ of the fake brain-booster supplement… Will we bite?

Accelleral exposed as a scam

Didn’t think so.

Accelleral Reviews

You can search to your heart’s content looking for real user reviews for Accelleral, but you won’t find a damn thing.

However, in the fake news story, they really lay it on heavy with the ‘social proof’. That’s right, at the very bottom of the ‘news story’ you’ll find a whole thread of Facebook comments praising the supplement. #bogustestimonials #faketestes

Accelleral fake user reviews

Yup, just like everything else in the advertisement, THESE ARE NOT REAL! Seriously, try to leave a comment of your own and you’ll see it doesn’t work. Scam-tastic!

Accelleral FAQ’s


Who makes Accelleral?

That’s the million-dollar question. Or one of them at least.

Probably some shady, off-shore factory. I did a search for the makers of the product, and I came up bone dry. But after scrolling down the page some, I found a company called ‘Excelerol.’

Notice the difference in spelling…

In searching for Accelerol, I found Excelerol

Now I doubt this is the same company/product as Accelleral, but you never know. It is a “brain health supplement” after all. At least Excelerol has a legitimate website.

What are the ingredients in Accelleral?

Let’s be real…

It’s a mystery cocktail of who-the-heck-knows?! If they go this far to scam people into buying the product, who’s to say the formula is legit. I can almost guarantee it’s not.

In the advertisement, the only mention of ingredients is this…

Accelleral is a scam brain booster

“Natural vitamins and minerals.” Gee, thanks.

Accelleral side effects

The side effects of Accelleral include everything up to and including:

  • You flushing your hard-earned money down the toilet
  • So just don’t do it
  • Seriously
If you buy Accelleral you will be flushing your money down the toilet.

If you DO buy the stuff, the best case scenario you can hope for is that you a.) actually get a bottle in the mail, and b.) don’t die.

Well OK, in all fairness, while the product might not be harmful (I honestly can’t say either way), I’m almost certain it won’t increase your memory or focus by 300% as it claims to.


I think by now you know where I stand on this product. Accelleral is definitely a no-go and not worth it.


Unfortunately, good people are getting scammed left and right by fake news stories selling fake products like this one. So I hope I was able to shed some light on what to look out for, and how not to get duped.

If for some reason you do happen to get scammed, AARP educates us on how to possibly recoup our losses.

They say…

Here's what to do if you get scammed by a product like Accelleral

Anyhow, best of luck out there in the wild west of the interwebs, and happy hunting for a brain booster supplement that actually works.

There are so many good brain boosters out there that don’t rely on robbing you blind and not thinking twice about it.

  1. I fell for this scam about a year ago… Seen the guaranteed results with memory, energy, iq, etc & like a lot of people I thought that I could benefit from something that does all those things… Well after about 2 weeks i get a few charges & have to cancel my debit card. I didnt take them right away because I was pregnant so I began taking them about 2 months ago & regret ever falling fot their lies!

    I have recently tested positive for substances I don’t take nor am I prescribed. We finally tested one pill and it came back positive for amp., meth, & bupronorphine!!!

    This product almost ruined my life!! DO NOT TAKE THIS “SUPPLEMENT”!!!
  2. I finally got a hold of someone after a week of calling every day. They told me that my account was canceled and I will get no more charges.

    We will see if that is true. I haven’t noticed any difference I have taken it a total of 5 days no with nothing to show for it.

    I would not buy this product as it dose not do anything remotely close to what it says. Funny is I got a 89.00 charge from the company and when i called they offered it to me for 22.00 to continue the shipments.

    Which I kindly declined. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT……NOT WORTH IT…….

  3. Thanks for the review! Not that I had any intention of purchasing this “Accelleral” product, but I’m always intrigued by techniques to market and manipulate people into separating themselves from their money.

    Beyond the ridiculous alleged celebrity endorsements, I couldn’t find an ingredient list — which I thought was mandatory for supplements due to how some ingredients may cause harm when taken with prescription medications. Nope, no info.

    The terms and conditions link showed a very harsh, unapologetic cancellation policy.

    Don’t ever sign up for a “trial” that automatically starts shipping the product — ever! Seriously evil people selling this snake oil.

  4. if Accelleral actually worked as they say it does and that Trump is is involved in making sure these supplements are available to the public then I would assume that he would take this. Unfortunately its very apparent that Trump in no has increased his brain power or anything having to do with intelligence.

    Same goes for the claims of Ben carson who is also in desperate need of some brain boosting powers.
  5. I wrote the name down and put it in the subject line to check it out before ordering the product. I thought it sounded too good to be real.

    Just didn’t gel. Sooooooo I come up with your artificial.

    I took the time to read it all the way through. So happy that I did.

    I’ve ordered some products like creams that have been OK but I knew that they would not be as great as they claimed to be. If it’s going to be a winner it’s going to be on the open market where more can be sold.

    At least that’s what I think but I do thank you for all the information you give. Hope if I see something else I can get your opinion on it.

    I would like to know about Procera if you have an opinion on that.
  6. I just wanted to let someone know, that I bought the Accelerall
    aka Premium Fitness Power. I didnt want the product so I called all of the phone numbers I could find on-line on the bottle.
    But there’s a website you can e-mail to. I email them included my order number, name address etc.. I got a response with in an hour!This was the e-mail I received. This is the e-mail
    any open subscriptions on your account have been cancelled. Nothing further will ship or be charged to your card. We cannot refund the $4.95 since this has already been shipped out. If you like the product simply call the 800 number to place a new order. We often offer special pricing so be sure to ask the agent about any discounts. Sometime you need to go back to the website where you did your first order. Good Luck!!
  7. The processed my order without me ever pressing send. Now they do not answer the phone number and say that they will charge me 89 dolllars a month plus shipping. 855 773 6637.

    1. Hey Sue,

      Contact your credit card company and let them know you don’t want to accept any further charges from this company. If you can reach Accelleral, tell them your next call is your State Attorney General, then the Better Business Bureau.

      It’s no guarantee, but they may change their minds.
      1. Yeah, I just got back from my bank. The guy was real helpful.

        He said this happens a lot. He closed my card down and re-issued another.

        He said he was pretty sure I could get my money back. I too had a charge of $89.95 (don’t have a clue what that was for)!! and two charges for $24.99 (one of which was credited back to me).

        If this happens to you, you have to act quickly. The bank can probably get your money back but it may take a week or two.

        It has to go through a legal process (you’re not a part of). I sat on the phone for the last two days (one hour the first day, then 45 minutes the next day), trying to talk to a nyone (a human).

        All I got was a stupid piano tune I couldn’t stand. It was painfully clear they will never answer the phone… you really can’t cancel the order, much less prevent more to come (with more charges).

        Unless you shut down your “bank card” this may never end!! I did receive the product anyway, and two others I did not order (but was billed). I wanted to talk to them and offer to send everything back if they would send me a prepaid shipping label—–all I got was that same piano tune!! I took the “brain product” for almost a week now.

        I really do not feel one bit smarter. YES—this is a scam!! A BIG SCAM!
