This Genius Consciousness review isn’t simply a nootropic supplement review. It’s a “Super Nootropic Awakening Formula” review, which is super different and, well, just way more super than your standard supplement review.
And I’ll start this review off by listing Genius Consciousness’ brain benefit promises (or are they demands?):
- THINK DEEPER
- FIND CREATIVITY
- FREE THOUGHT
Essentially, Genius Consciousness is your brain’s “red pill” awakening stack — except this “red pill” doesn’t come as a pill but rather as a scoopable powder. A red, watermelony powder. But does it work? Let’s read the super-duper Genius Consciousness review to find out.
About Genius Consciousness

Genius Consciousness promises “Nootropic Biohack Technology for Mental Performance” and gives us 10 highly dosed nootropics that, for the most part, seem to improve mental performance. But how? And how MUCH improvement? We’ll need to check out the formula ingredient-by-ingredient to find those answers. Check it:
Genius Consciousness Review: Ingredients
Acetyl-L-Carnitine HCl – Believed to improve brain mitochondrial ATP energy output, ALCAR is a popular nootropic amino with significant cognitive enhancing potential …namely for the elderly and heavy alcohol users. For the average, healthy user, ALCAR doesn’t seem to do much. More on ALCAR.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom – Perhaps my favorite shroom, Lion’s Mane is a key player in natural neuroregeneration, potentially increasing NGF levels for increased neuron growth and repair. Some supplements supply enhanced Lion’s Mane extract. Genius Consciousness gives us the plain powder stuff. More on Lion’s Mane.
Alpha-GPC (as AlphaSize®) – Having a high choline concentration, alpha-GPC seems to increase the brain’s stock of neurotransmitter acetylcholine precursor, potentially improving memory, learning, and focus. AlphaSize® is a quality alpha-GPC brand. More on Alpha-GPC.
L-Tyrosine – One of the best anti-stress nootropics for its direct role in catecholamine synthesis. When the brain is stressed and/or over-activated, natural tyrosine levels tank to keep up with the brain’s catecholaminergic demands. Supplementing the amino may help keep mood and motivation levels soaring. More on L-Tyrosine.
Methyliberine (as Dynamine®) – An interesting, unique theacrine-like ingredient. And the fact that it’s theacrine-like means that methyliberine is like a caffeine-like ingredient, meaning it potentially possesses stimulative cognitive bio-benefits. Sort of a risky addition, given there’s not much on this bad boy, but 50 mg is conservative enough for methyliberine-newcomers to give Genius Consciousness a try.
Caffeine (from Coffea arabica) – This is not a caffeine-like ingredient. This is caffeine. A natural stimulant drug that… you know what, you know what caffeine is. Next ingredient. More on Caffeine.
SerinAid® (50% Phosphatidylserine) – A quality brand of phosphatidylserine, an important brain cell membrane phospholipid that may improve long-term memory and cognition. Essentially, PS is a key nootropic for cognitive longevity. More on Phosphatidylserine.
NeuroFactor™ (Coffea arabica Extract) – NeuroFactor™ isn’t simply caffeine. This extract takes a more comprehensive bio-active extract from coffee beans, giving us more antioxidants for more free radical damage reduction.
AstraGin™ (Panax notoginseng Extract and Astragalus membranaceus Extract) – Patented combo of ginseng and astragalus, purportedly used to increase amino absorption. In other words, this extract enhances the bioavailability of Genius Consciousness’ amino nootropics. More on Ginseng.
Huperzia serrata Extract (1% Huperzine A) – In small dosages, Hup-A can significantly boost cognition by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme responsible for acetylcholine breakdown. More on Huperzine A.
Genius Consciousness Review: Noot-Based, Stim-Charged Brainpower
Noot-Based, Stim-Charged — what do I mean by that? Good question, and here’s a good answer: Genius Consciousness bases its brain boosts on a series of well-dosed, natural nootropics, then charges your mental performance levels up a notch with some good ol’ caffeinated stimulation.
In fact, the formula very neatly splits into those two sub-categories:
- Nootropics – ALCAR, Lion’s Mane, Alpha-GPC, L-Tyrosine, PS, Hup-A
- Stimulants – Methyliberine, Caffeine, NeuroFactor™
And NeuroFactor™ somewhat bridges the gap between nootropic and stimulant, as this coffee bean extract brand includes both the stimulative and neuroregenerative aspects of the coffee bean.
Aside from the nootropics and stimulants, Genius Consciousness also supplies AstraGin™, a clever addition to this formula for its amino-absorption-enhancing properties, which in turn boosts the effects of Genius Consciousness’ L-tyrosine. This ingredient, in addition to the generally high quality and well-dosed nature to Genius Consciousness’ ingredients, indicates to me that these guys know how to craft an effective, worth-the-money supplement.
These aren’t bunk-O ingredients supplied in bunk-O formats, capsulated in bunk-O pills. Genius Consciousness pulls out the big guns for this formula, cramming these hefty dosages into hefty powder serving sizes. The only downside here being that stimulant-sensitive users may be at risk of Genius Consciousness’ well-dosed stimulants — particularly methyliberine.
Yet, you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into here, which I credit to Genius Consciousness’ non-proprietary label design. All around, Genius Consciousness is an impressive caffeinated cognition booster.
- Inferior brain health stacks utilize caffeine as a crutch. Genius Consciousness enhances the caffeine experience with smart nootropics and complementary brain boosters.
- Across the board, Genius Consciousness showcases high quality, well-dosed ingredients, throwing a few patented brain boosters in the mix as well.
- For such a high quality stack, Genius Consciousness is reasonably priced, especially if you’re satisfied with only 1/2 scoop per serving.
- ALCAR is the only questionable nootropic in this stack. Not because it’s a bad ingredient per se… but it may not do much for the average, healthy nootropic customer.
- Genius Consciousness supplies its stimulants with class, yet the stimulant-heavy approach to brain boosting inherently runs a higher risk than your all natural, stim-free nootropic options.
- $37.99 for 15 scoops, a 15- to 30-day supply
- $1.27 per 1/2 scoop serving; $2.53 per 1 scoop serving
Who Takes Genius Consciousness?
Genius Consciousness’ powder format allows for this supplement to operate not only as a nootropic brain booster but as a healthier energy drink alternative, as well. I imagine Genius Consciousness appealing to college students and athletes, creative types and techies — really anyone who may benefit by a nootropic-enhanced caffeine experience.
Where to Buy It
You can buy Genius Consciousness through Amazon and possibly eBay. Following the “buy” link on the Genius Consciousness website will reroute you to Amazon, so I’m assuming that’s the primary buying location for this bad boy.
Conclusion: Does Genius Consciousness Work?
Yes, for what Genius Consciousness promises, Genius Consciousness works. Which means that Genius Consciousness works to improve: Working Memory, Better Concentration, and Brain Health. And given the formula’s use of stimulants and fast-acting aminos, this is a product that you can expect to work fast and reliably.
In other words, Genius Consciousness is a I-need-to-get-shit-done right-now stack that actually helps you get shit done right now. Granted, it’s not the most nuanced nootropic brain health stack, as compared to nootropic supplements that can amplify mental performance without any reliance on stims. Yet, it’s one of the more nuanced stim supplements I’ve seen out there, making it at least worth a buy as an “as-needed” mental performance boost.
|Brain Health Benefits|
My 17 yr old son has been on aderall and has been refusing to take it due to side effects. .Do you think that this would be a good replacement for him to try?
The Geek says
I sympathize with your son. Admittedly, I’m uncomfortable making any recommendations regarding pharmaceutical grade drugs. Some people need them, some don’t — and even many of those who need them really don’t enjoy them. Genius Consciousness might be worth a try (and if he doesn’t like it, then you may as well finish off the bottle!). Maritime pine bark extract shows some promising research for alleviating ADHD/attention-disorder symptoms; so if his Adderall prescription is ADHD-related, maybe look into a nootropic stack with maritime pine bark extract. It’s nowhere near the mind-jolting effects of Adderall, but it may at least help with the underlying issues with attention.
Hope that helps. Thanks for the Q.,
An Sharment says
Is it possible to best combine Joy and Conciuosness?
The Geek says
Hi An Sharment,
For sure, that sounds reasonable. It seems that all of Genius supplements are designed to stack together, so I don’t see why not!
Thanks for the Q.,
Can genius consciousness be stacked with both genius joy and aniracetam?
Can you take this with Genius Joy?
No, you will die.
The Geek says
Yes, you can stack Genius Consciousness with Genius Joy (and ditto for Genius Mushrooms). No, you won’t die, as Jorge claims lol I imagine the Genius Brand intended for their supplements to be stacked together. Just stick by the Directions on the label and you should be good to go.
Thanks for the Q.,
Do you think it’s safe to take Genius Consciousness with 2 caps of Genius Joy (1 in morning, 1 in afternoon)?
Would you recommend a non-stim, get **it done combo? Thank you.
Hi, do you recommend this product for focusing in study (5-6 hours a day) and finally do you think is good to take it during a 2 days exam? Thanks a lot for your opinion. I read the reviews in Amazon and looks good but I’m not sure if the reviews are real
Thank you for all this awesome research you did. I was considering buying this product but was on the fence because I know many Amazon reviews can be created by users who were given free samples or just paid off. After reading your post, I think I’ll give it a try. It seems legit. Thanks again!
Would it be beneficial to ale this sup with genius brands mushroom
The Geek says
I don’t see why not, if you’re considering both. Genius Consciousness and Genius Mushrooms are so different in their formula designs that I couldn’t imagine any negative interactions between these two supplements (especially considering they’re both manufactured by the same company). In generally, I view Genius Consciousness as a short-term mental booster and Genius Mushrooms more on the long-term end. Taking both may theoretically cover the full spectrum.
Thanks for the Q.,
I believe you incorrectly state that this formula Includes L-Theanine. It does not!
The Geek says
Thanks, G — you’re exactly right! I blame Genius Consciousness’ lack of mind-taming L-theanine for this slip-up 😉 Appreciate the read.
