In today’s world, everyone wants an edge, something to set them apart from the crowd, to help them reach ever-changing goals, and to keep focused and motivated in times of stress.

You can eat right, exercise, get enough water and rest, and all those things help. But what if you could do even more?

What if you could take a pill that eliminates brain fog and improves your ability to pay attention, remember, and concentrate?

Provasil is a dietary supplement that claims to be that pill.

Provasil is marketed toward men and women who are starting to see that normal yet annoying loss of mental acuity that often comes with age.

Forgetting where you left your keys or why you came into the room, searching for that word that’s on the tip of your tongue.

Struggling to stay focused on the task at hand.

Taking Provasil can combat all of these issues.

And while their primary marketing focus is on age-related decline, Provasil can be used by anyone wanting to boost their mental faculties.

Provasil Ingredients and How They Work

Provasil belongs to a growing category of supplements called Nootropics.

These are modeled after Adderall, the prescription ADHD drug used off-label by so many people due to its ability to improve cognitive function, even if you don’t have ADHD.

But Provasil and the others use natural ingredients and they don’t require a prescription.

Essentially you can call them the legal, over the counter version of drugs like Adderall.

At least that is what the allure is to those that either can’t quite get their hands on their own prescription, has no “connection”, or does not feel right morally about seeking out a prescription medication without having a proper script for it.

The formula for Provasil is provided on their website, and they take the time to explain how each component works.

The list includes:

  • Vitamin C for boosting immune system functioning and reaching optimal brain function, especially in the area of memory.

    It’s also an antioxidant which protects brain cells against oxidative damage.
  • Folic Acid which supports brain function as we age, specifically memory, word fluency, and information processing.
  • Vitmain B12 which supports memory.
  • Choline Bitartrate which helps strengthen cells and provides a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine for better memory, mental alertness, and concentration.
  • L-Tyrosine which is associated with improved cognitive performance in times of stress.
  • N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine which neutralizes free radicals, protecting the brain from oxidative stress.

    It also raises aetylcholine levels as well.
  • Bacopa Monnieri which has been shown in clinical tests to improve information processing in older adults.
  • Ginkgo Leaf for boosting blood flow to the brain, for better attention and memory.
  • Phosphatidylserine which is necessary to keep healthy cell membranes and regulate synapse and reception action and the release of neurotransmitters.
  • L-Glutamine for increased alertness.
  • Phosphatidylcholine which also boosts acetylcholine levels for improved mental functioning.
  • Panax Ginseng Root which has been shown to improve mental alertness.
  • Resveratrol which in an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
  • Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) which is an omeg-3 fatty acid found in salmon.

    It strengthens cell structure and improves nutrient transportation and cellular communication.

The recommended dose is 1-2 Provasilcapsules in the morning with a meal or snack.

It’s not recommended that you take it on an empty stomach.

My Personal Results

I purchased a bottle of Provasil on Amazon for $77, which categorizes it as one of the more expensive nootropic supplements I’ve ever bought.

In hindsight, this was pretty stupid of me because they sell it on their official website for $49.95. provasil review

Oh well, maybe by taking Provasil it would make me smart enough to avoid doing things like that in the future 🙂

Anyway, I took the recommended dose of 1 – 2 capsules in the morning on an empty stomach for a few weeks.

At first, it “felt” like it was doing something. I felt a small wave of clarity wash over me.

It wasn’t anything dramatic, but rather a subtle cognitive effect.

This effect only seemed to last for the first couple of days, and then more or less dissappeared.

I don’t know if it was a placebo effect or what, but It didn’t seem to provide the benefits it was promising.

Those promises include a boost in memory, which is a hard thing to quantify.

Was I remembering things better while on it? Not really.

Did I feel more mentally alert and ready to take on the tasks of the day? Not really.

Did it provide “mind blowing” focus and creativity? Maybe a small amount at first, but this didn’t last.

Provasil Pros and Cons

Advantages of Provasil

  • The ingredients are all natural.
  • There’s a 60 day money back guarantee.
  • It’s relatively affordable.
  • The formula is fairly comprehensive.
  • The website contains several positive testimonials from customers.

Disadvantages of Provasil

  • No clinical tests have been performed on Provasil, though some have been done with certain ingredients.
  • There’s a small amount of independent reviews (specifically on Highya), but it doesn’t have a very good rating.

Where to Buy

You can purchase Provasil through the official website, single bottle is a one month supply and costs $49.95. There are discounts, including free bottles and free shipping if you buy multiple bottles at once.There’s a 60 day money back guarantee as well.

I checked with some of the larger store chains like Walmart, Walgreens, CVS / Rite Aid, and GNC, and none of them are selling Provasil as of this review.


Provasil has a nice, comprehensive nootropic formula that includes vitamins as well as important neurotransmitter ingredients and herbal cognitive enhancers.

Does it really work? Well for me, it didn’t do much. I’ve found that with nootropics, what works for some people doesn’t necessarily work for everyone, so sometimes, you have to try a few different options.

It also appears to be that the best results with Provasil seem to take effect if you take it for long periods of time (3 months +), so if you’re looking for something “fast acting” I would certainly recommend you look elsewhere.

However, as a longer term cognitive enhancer Provasil might be worth trying, and the money back guarantee makes it fairly risk-free to do so.

I have tried Provasil and found it to work great for me. I have been taking one in am with breakfast.I have sustained focus well into the afternoon whereas before I would fade out.  I have used Adderall in the past and that worked for me, but I cannot get it so I tried Provasil and it has made a noticeable improvement in the way I feel. I am definitely more alert, especially as the day wears on.

I'm 65, and I had noticed a degradation of memory. My mental sharpness had degraded and I experienced forgetfulness over a period of time.  I've tried a couple of other makers of supplements with minor results. After reading a number of reviews for Provasil, I decided to give it a try and found the results to be great.  My response to the supplement was felt quickly, and I found constant improvement in all aspects of my brain function. I'm coming to the end of my first bottle, and placing a second order to follow.

My son is studying a lot and he thinks he is not memorizing a lot of what He is reading . Can this supplement help his memory and how long it will take if it does it? -Mecha

It could help, though my preference is for Optimind.  But if he's under 18, he shouldn't use any of these supplements without consulting with a doctor first.- Rob

  1. OptiMind has a massive amount of caffeine. I can’t take much caffeine.

    This would not be a good choice for me.
  2. I have tried several nootropics such as Optimind, Alphabrain, Dr’s Best Brain Health, GNC’s Cognitive Health, etc. Also some random more natural supplements. What is your personal favorite or best working “smart” supplement?

    I am just tired of every reccomendation being based on marketing or sales, looking for real information. Thanks!

  3. Hiya Mr. Rob!

    So why did you take this on an empty stomach when they specifically state to NOT take it on an empty stomach?! Or did you simply mistype?

    Thanks, Mr. Rob-
