I find it interesting that my 3 previous posts about Excelerol, Examining Excelerol, Experiencing Excelerol, and Experimenting With Excelerol, still get several hits per day, all these months later. I can see the various search terms that lead folks to them, things like “Excelerol reviews” and “is Excelerol a scam. ” People are interested in this stuff. I don’t have anything new to say about the product itself, I explained exactly what my experience using it was in Experiencing Excelerol. It didn’t work for me. You’re free to ignore my review and try it yourself. And if you have already tried it, and it worked for you, that’s great, but does not change the fact that it didn’t work for me, and trying to argue with me about it won’t change that fact.
Now, as I said in my first post Examining Excelerol, there are many things about how this product is marketed that raise red flags for me, such as the flurry of 5-star reviews on Amazon from people who’ve never reviewed anything else on Amazon before that, and the way some of these positive reviewers seek out and attack anyone who gives a negative review. I’ve gotten that on Amazon, you can see this guy, Miguel Gonzales, who commented on my review with:
So, I’m totally confused here. Why, if you didn’t like excelerol would you order it again??? I checked your profile and it looks like you ordered a 90 capsule supply and a 30 capsule supply in the same month. That looks super shady if you ask me. If it doesn’t work for you, that is fine. It is your opinion. Maybe you need to go to a doctor and take heavier drugs dude?There are loads of people who it does work for. Me included. Some might not react to it right away. It took me almost 3 months to get the full effects. Diet and exercise are key factors.

Stop hating on something just because it didn’t make you any smarter. I love excelerol.
And I looked @ this guy, and noticed he’d left similar comments in response to other negative reviews of Excelerol, which you can see HERE, HERE, and HERE. Yet, despite his claim of having a company with over 30 people who all use it because it works so well, he’s never written his own “verified” review of Excelerol, which would seem like the most logical thing to do if it works so well for you. Instead he just tries to discredit the negative reviews. I find that to be strange. It makes me wonder if he’s directly connected to Excelerol somehow?
I’ve also gotten a couple of angry comments here on this blog, both of which I simply deleted without a response, since they were clearly trollish. One guy used foul language, calling me an A-hole, and said I was just too “impatient”, because Excelerol does work. Yes, I only took it 23 days but read my review where I explain exactly why I felt that was long enough for me to determine if it worked or not. Again, you can ignore it if you want, but why get angry and call me names for giving my opinion, based on my own experience? And then there was another bloke, in response to my blog EXPERIMENTING WITH EXCELEROL, where I exposed Mark K Sachs, the disgraced former doctor with a history of lawsuits who had his license revoked a couple of years ago after being arrested for illegally selling oxycodone. Yet there he was on Amazon, calling himself a doctor, but mis-spelling his own last name, and posting positive video reviews for Excelerol, and for MatchaDNA Certified Organic Matcha Tea, which is made by the same company, Accelerated Intelligence. But someone tried to post saying something like “who cares if he’s a real doctor or not? At least his review was well-written, unlike yours.” Gee, how could I possibly argue with THAT logic?
Now, I have no proof that any of these people are directly involved with the makers of Excelerol, but their behavior makes me speculate, and it makes me question the veracity of Excelerol and their claims even more. There are plenty of positive reviews of Excelerol on other blogs, I’ve linked to them before. And, as I write this, the 5 & 4-star reviews on Amazon far outnumber the 1 & 2-star reviews. So why do some people feel the need to go after and try to shut down the negative reviews? Hmmmm?
Anyway, Excelerol was the just the latest of many brain-enhancing pills I’ve tried over the years, and I that was going to be it, for me. But then a few months ago, I did try one more. I’m a subscriber to the Adam Carolla podcast on iTunes, and I’d heard him talk about ALPHA BRAIN. He said he would take 3 pills before he goes on stage for one of his live shows, and it would make him fill laser-focus and energetic. He also claimed that Joe Rogen, who co-owns the company that makes these pills, does the same thing for the same effect. Of course I knew he was getting paid to advertise the pills on his podcast but, nevertheless, I trusted Carolla’s opinion. So I went on Amazon and ordered a 30-pill bottle of Alpha Brain, and I took three and felt NOTHING. And I took three a day, for the next nine days, and never felt a darn thing. I know some would argue that 10 days isn’t enough time to see if works, but I’m going by how it was advertised to me, by Adam Carolla, and he said that three was enough to affect him. So that’s how I tried it, but it didn’t work, so that’s that.
A little while after that, I got some messages on Facebook from a couple of blokes who said they represent a company called TruBrain, and were asking me to try it, in order to review it on my blog. I took a look @ the website, and my first thought was that it was too expensive, even if I were inclined to try it. So they offered to send me free samples to try it. But I declined, for several reasons.
First and foremost, I never accept freebies in exchange for reviews. The reason is, I want to remain impartial. I want YOU, the reader, to know that when you read my review for something, whether it’s a movie, a book, a comic-book, or Axe body-spray, whatever, it is truly my fair and balanced opinion, that I am not influenced by anyone or anything, and that I spent my own money on it. Even when I review something from a friend of mine, like Stacy Clark’s albums, the fact that I know her doesn’t change my opinion. So when I give Stacy’s albums good reviews and recommend you buy it, it’s because I bought them myself, so I put my money where my mouth is.
The same goes for my negative reviews. As I told that guy on Amazon, when he questioned why I’d bought two packs of Excelerol if it didn’t work, implying there was something fishy about that, I said that should give me even more credibility. I spent almost $200 of my own money on Excelerol, so of course I wanted it to work. I had very high hopes for it when I first ordered it. So if it had any effect on me, I’d be raving about it and singing its praises. So, really, the people trying to discredit my reviews, as if I have some kind of ulterior motive, are just barking up the wrong tree.
Anyway, the guys connected to this TruBrain thing must have seen my Excelerol reviews, and that’s why they sought me out to try their product. I will credit for that, since they can see that I will give a negative review if it doesn’t work, so they must have a lot of confidence in their product, if they still want me to try it. But, like I said, I have just been burnt out on Brain Supplements in general to even think about trying another one. So I’m posting a link to there website: http://trubrain.com/
It looks impressive, but I’m not personally endorsing it, or criticizing it, because I have no personal knowledge of this product, so just take a look around yourself, and make up your own mind.
