Does Focus Factor Really Work?

Focus Factor – A Mediocre Option With A Good Vitamin Blend

Focus Factor is a brain-boosting health supplement in pill form that claims it’s been engineered to help enhance the functions of your brain by improving focus, concentration, and memory.

The reality is Focus Factor is probably the best option from the supermarket brands, it still doesn’t hold a candle to the likes of Hunter Focus, but there are a couple of good points here. It has a very comprehensive multivitamin blend, so we can’t knock it there. The issue is with its nootropic blend, which unfortunately is the main point of the supplement.

It’s a proprietary blend which means we can’t be 100% sure if the ingredients in this blend are actually dosed correctly, but we can see it is actually impossible for all of them to be correctly dosed in under 800mg as Focus Factor would want you to believe.

Of the big three ingredients that we typically want to see in the best nootropics supplements Focus Factor also misses out on two, it does contain phosphatidylserine, but misses out on citicoline and resveratrol which are the most well-backed and effective at focus boosting and promoting brain health for the long term respectively.

The price point also means that it’s not much different to Hunter Focus which topped our best list, so unfortunately we can’t recommend Focus Factor. Although of the store brands, it is the best that we’ve seen. Far better than prevagen or neuriva for example. But, it does contain DMAE which is a nightmare for side effects and whilst it is effective it's not something we like to see as it can cause issues for a lot of people.

Focus Factor Side Effects

Stomach upset, nausea and diarrhea

DMAE can cause constipation, lightheadedness, migraines, depression, hypertension, and insomnia, we generally don’t like to see this in brain supplements, despite it’s benefits due to these common issues.

Does Focus Factor Work?

Yes, Focus Factor will likely work for most people, we expect that the vitamin blend alone would improve the overall cognitive function of most people and assuming that even the just the phosphatidylserine is correctly dosed in Focus Factor there’s a good chance of at least a mild performance increase.

Focus Factor vs Prevagen

This one is a no-brainer, not only does Prevagen not work, but it's actively dangerous and the FDA has pushed false advertising claims against them. As such, the result of Focus Factor vs Prevagen is a resounding win for Focus Factor. We don't recommend that anyone take Prevagen since there are reports of it stunting growth in children, causing seizures, and even memory loss, and we do understand the irony here. 

Focus Factor vs Neuriva

Focus factor also comes out as the winner in this shootout, Neuriva pretty much only gets PS right, so assuming Focus Factor does too, we can’t be sure, but we suspect that they do. Then there is nothing that Neuriva has that Focus Factor doesn’t.

Focus Factor Review Conclusion

What like that Focus Factor has a good balance of essential vitamins and minerals. And it’s got a couple of good ingredients for overall cognitive performance, but, it fails miserably as a mood booster or a memory booster, with a name like Focus Factor you could potentially say that’s reasonable, but at it’s price point you can get something that does all 3, and boosts focus better like Hunter.   
We don’t dislike Focus Factor, but there are better products on the market, the formula looks a little dated and the industry has moved on. Unfortunately, store brand memory supplements tend to be slow to update formulas due to having such large amounts of stock located all over the country. This means that they’re rarely the most up-to-date, and this is where Focus Factor falls down. Buy hunter instead.
