Brain Storm Elite is a supplement that the makers promise will give you more focus, memory, and energy if you take it every day. They state Brain Storm Elite is safe, goes to work immediately, and you will quickly notice the results. To get you to try it, they offer several different ordering options, including a 14-day trial.
How Brain Storm Elite Works
Brain Storm Elite claims to have three main ingredients: 400mg of Panax Ginseng and 10mg each of Vinpoectine and Vitamin B-6. On their ingredients page, they point to several different studies, allegedly showing their benefits.
However, it should be noted that, first, most of these studies are quite small (fewer than 60 people). Also, one of the studies they link to about Panax Ginseng expressly states: “Currently, there is a lack of convincing evidence to show a cognitive enhancing effect of Panax ginseng in healthy participants and no high quality evidence about its efficacy in patients with dementia.”
Brain Storm Elite Cost:
There are several different ways you can buy Brain Storm Elite, the most expensive (upfront) being 5 bottles for $144.95, which includes free shipping. The “cheapest” method is a 14-day trial, which costs you $4.95 in shipping.
However, if you do agree to this trial, after 14 days from receipt of your order, if you do not call to cancel and then return the bottle within 2 weeks, you will be charged $87.63 and then shipped more Brain Storm Elite and billed $87.63 every month. Note: the fine print states they will not honor any empty bottle returns and you will be responsible for payments for any product that has been shipped and/or delivered to you before cancellation.

Bottom Line: Is Brain Storm Elite a Scam?
Brain Storm Elite takes great pains to stay within the law regarding sales of supplements. They clearly state that the product has not been evaluated by the FDA, nor is it intended to diagnose, cure, or prevent disease. They also include language about their auto-ship program on their order page and require you to check a box saying you understand it.
They also state: “Results may vary, and the testimonials and images featured on this website do not represent typical results.”
And: “People with the following conditions should contact a doctor before consuming this product: high blood pressure, heart, liver, kidney or thyroid disease, diabetes, anemia, depression, anxiety, other psychiatric conditions, a family history of these or other medical conditions, or if taking any prescription, OTC and/or other herbal medications.”
Of course, this is still easy to miss because it’s in small print at the bottom of the page and you may be too excited about trying Brain Storm Elite to notice.
They also may be counting on the fact that you are, ahem, not very intelligent (and that’s perhaps why you want this product).
But that’s what we’re here for – to clear away the hype! Therefore, before buying Brain Storm Elite (or any supposed memory-enhancing supplement) you may want to read the following articles:
Speaking of Highya (disclosure: it’s our sister publication) there are 22 consumer reviews of Brain Storm Elite, with every single one of them giving it just one-star; the word “scam” appears quite often in these reviews.
