OnBrain Clarity is a supplement for your brain that claims it will increase memory recall, focus, processing, and reaction speed. They state OnBrain Clarity is completely safe, will amp up your alpha waves giving you the mental edge you need, unlocking 100% of your brain’s potential.
What’s in OnBrainClarity that they claim makes it so great for my smarts?
OnBrain Clarity lists three main ingredients on their website:
L-Glutamine HCL, an amino acid they say your brain can use as substitute fuel when you haven’t eaten or your blood sugar is low.
Gingko Biloba, which they state improves blood flow to the brain and acts as an antioxidant.
Vinpocetine, also said to improve blood flow to the brain that can prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Is there any proof any of the ingredients work to supercharge my brain?
Not much. They have a fancy chart on their website that claims taking OnBrain Clarity increased alpha wave production by 55% according to an EGG device, a 26% improvement in processing speed according to a Stroop Test, and a 14% improvement in memory recall speed according to a MemTrax test.
However, there is no information about who conducted this experiment or how it was conducted. To learn more about clinical studies and how to read them, read our article here.
According to WebMD, there is insufficient evidence L-Glutamine does anything to affect our brains. Vinpocetine has shown some promise for having a small effect on Alzheimer’s disease, but more research is needed (most studies were published before 1990). Gingko Biloba, one of the oldest medicines in the world, does show promise for helping memory and cognitive speed, but actual study results are mixed.
Conclusion: Gingko Biloba is the most promising ingredient, but there is still not enough strong evidence it will help an otherwise healthy brain become smarter. Since there is no label information, we don’t know how much of any given product is in OnBrain Clarity, so the possibility of its effectiveness is further diminished.

Bottom Line: Is OnBrain Clarity a good idea to supercharge my brain activity and make me smarter?
Most likely, no. This is because there is no proven effective “smart pill” in existence. Scientists don’t really understand how the brain works, nor do they understand how any of these supplements really affect or interact with our brain.
A recent examination of so-called smart drugs by Men’s Health Magazine concluded that evidence they help the average guy is unclear. That hasn’t stopped college students, CEOs, and others looking for a competitive edge. (Often they end up with the jitters and diarrhea).
We also question what’s really in OnBrain Clarity. Although they claim to be use an FDA Registered Facility and abide by GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), these two things are misleading. First of all, the FDA does not approve supplements, and GMP are a set of voluntary guidelines. A 2012 investigation found that the FDA cited 70% of supplement makers it inspected for GMP violations.
Therefore, if you are still interested in nootropics (that’s the smarty-pants way of saying smart drugs), we’d like to suggest a few things. First, if you’d like to read up about all the different ingredients as well as hear the latest news, visit Reddit’s Nootropics forum and also read their Beginner’s Guide to Nootropics.
We also urge to read our own Smart Guide to Buying Smart Drugs, which outlines several key things to look out for.
Generally speaking, we found most of these drugs are harmless in small doses, will have a very minimal effect on your brain, but a MUCH LARGER effect on... what's in your wallet.
Instead of a pill, we suggest taking a little aerobic exercise break, which has been associated with modest improvements in attention and processing speed.
A cup of coffee in the morning (2 max) is still one of the most effective methods of keeping focused and clearing brain fog. It’s been linked with lower risk of Alzheimer’s and diabetes, too.
To improve your memory, you could also: reduce stress, get enough sleep, learn a new skill, or just have a laugh. More memory improvement tips like these can be found at Helpguide.org.
