HVMN Nootrobox Rise Review (2019 Update)

Nootrobox is one of the nootropics brands that got a lot of hype around them because of several big investors who wanted to cash in on the growing nootropics trend. The good thing is that this led to a big marketing push to help Nootrobox become one of the more recognizable brands out there. The bigwigs behind the brand later decided to create a conglomerate called HVMN to produce a wide range of products to capitalize off people's desire to better themselves.

Unfortunately, HVMN funded a study behind one of their nootropics, but they discovered that regular coffee works better. While Nootrobox Sprint may snake oil, how does Rise fare?

We'd say that Nootrobox Rise is arguably one of the better budget nootropics out there for anyone who wants a decent product that is cheap. Let's talk about why.

Nootrobox Rise Ingredients:

There are the three main ingredients you'll find in Rise.

Alpha GPC – Alpha GPC is the acetylcholine precursor that NooMind and other experts recommend most. It has a high bioavailability and is much better than citicoline, an alternative you'll find in lesser nootropics products. Rise even includes the recommended 300mg of Alpha GPC that you'll find in the premium nootropic, NOOESIS Opus.

Bacopa Monnieri – Rise contains 300mg of Bacopa Monnieri standardized to 50% bacosides, again mirroring the quantity seen in NOOESIS Opus. Bacopa Monnieri is a key nootropic, and it's good to see that Rise utilizes a significant dosage of this essential nootropic ingredient.

Rhodiola Rosea – This it yet another critical nootropic compound and again Rise goes head to head with the market-leading NOOESIS Opus by putting in 300mg of Rhodiola Rosea... at the same essential 5% Rosavins and 2% Salidrosides!

It makes sense that Rise would contain these amounts of these essential ingredients as according to the science behind Opus, these are 3 of the most effective nootropics.

HVMN Nootrobox Rise Review:

So how goes is Nootrobox Rise? Does is really work?

Well, while HVMN has slashed the prices of their nootropics in an attempt to sell their “full stack” collection of products all together, their self-funded study that back-fired and showed their flagship Sprint product doesn't work puts their whole range of products into question.

The good news we can report is that at the very least, their Rise supplement does show links to cognitive benefits based on the effectiveness of the 3 ingredients it features.

Rise has 3 powerful nootropic compounds that are linked to improved memory and focus over time. While the budget pricing of Rise lends skepticism about the sourcing of low-grade ingredients, they theoretically should be safe to consume, and in our testing Rise seemed get solid results over a period of 3 months. However, there are more powerful nootropics available...

Nootrobox Rise Vs Other Nootropics

The most obvious comparison to make is comparing HVMN's Rise to NOOESIS Opus since Rise is basically like a “light” version of the current best nootropic on the market.

Both products have the same doses of the initial 3 ingredients: Alpha GPC, Bacopa Monnieri, and Rhodiola Rosea. But NOOESIS Opus has 4 more ingredients that push it more into “super nootropic” territory.

While NOOESIS Opus may be the objectively better nootropic supplement from a strictly factual scientific standpoint, Rise is still a solid choice from the perspective of just wanting a little extra mental boost, not a full on cognitive upgrade.

The ingredients in Rise are effective, but it's more like a starter nootropic or a choice for budget-minded brain booster buyers.

It looks HVMN took a few notes from NOOESIS and ditched the gelatin capsules they were using in favor of veggie caps similar to what Opus uses. But while Opus is free of junk fillers, Rise still has Magnesium Stearate which we'd like to see them remove.

Still, like we've said, Rise is a solid choice for those just starting to get into nootropics and aren't ready to commit to purchasing a premium nootropic.

HVMN Nootrobox Rise Review Verdict: 

Nootrobox Rise is a solid beginner nootropic for anyone who isn't ready to invest in the full cognitive upgrade of a premium brain supplement like NOOESIS Opus. It has 3 effect ingredients, and while we're skeptical of the sourcing quality in a supplement so cheap, users can expect some marginal cognitive boosting at the very least.
