MY HONEST REVIEW OF
The first day that I tried Herberall, I took 2 capsules (one serving) in the morning with a small meal. Usually, I have either a cup of coffee or green tea in the morning, but I skipped it because Herberall contains plenty of caffeine and I didn't want to overdo it.
Within 45 minutes, I felt alert and ready to tackle the day. This wasn't surprising since Herberall contains more than twice the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee or double-brewed green tea, which is how I drink it.
Fortunately, Herberall also contains green tea extract, which has l-theanine in it. L-theanine cancels out many of caffeine's negative effects like anxiety and a crash several hours after consumption. Herberall's high caffeine content isn't an issue for me, as I'm not particularly sensitive to caffeine, but I know a lot of people who are.
I got a ton of work done on that first day I took Herberall. I had plenty of energy and my mood seemed to be a little better than usual. There was no question that my productivity was increased.
For the next 6 days, I continued to take 2 capsules of Herberall shortly after waking. I took it with a small meal, which is what the manufacturer recommends. Some of Herberall's ingredients can cause upset stomach and taking it with a meal can eliminate that possibility.
I only took Herberall for 7 days, as I only had a 7-day pack to try. During those 7 days, though, I can definitely say that my productivity was higher than usual. I got everything done that I wanted to and then some.
Unfortunately, I probably didn't get to experience everything that Herberall has to offer. Several of its ingredients work best when taken regularly for several weeks. That being said, this product gave me more of a boost on day 1 than just about any other that I've tried.
Prescription medications are incredibly powerful stimulants. Herberall, while not as strong, comes about as close as any of the products I've tried. And its ingredients are all natural, extracted from organic sources.
Normally, I'm not a fan of nootropic blends containing caffeine. However, in this case, I'm making an exception. It would be nearly impossible to even attempt to mimic prescription medication's effects without some sort of stimulant. As far as stimulants go, caffeine has more research and a better side effect profile than anything else.
I'd recommend Herberall to anyone who is looking for a powerful nootropic and isn't hyper-sensitive to caffeine. The l-theanine and green tea extract in Herberall will mitigate many of caffeine's side effects. Still, if you're exceptionally sensitive to caffeine, since it contains such a large amount, you should be careful with Herberall.
You can get this product from the Herberall website. Compared to other similar nootropic products, I think that Herberall's price is very reasonable. If you're looking for a strong, stimulating supplement to help you increase productivity and boost mood.

Overall I think it is a good product. It definitely helps with focus and concentration and you can actually feel it working "right away". People like me that have attention deficit will be pleased. I got lots of work done while taking Herberall so I am satisfied with it. I could see this product being great for students and people that have demanding jobs in general.

"Hi! My name is Mike and I started The Nootropics Zone your #1 blog for information about improving cognitive performance. Since its creation over five years ago, The Nootropics Zone has established itself as one of the leading authorities on cognitive enhancement.
At the time, I'd already been interested in smart drugs for several years. But I noticed that there weren't any websites devoted specifically to nootropics. To learn about them, I had to dig through medical journals and scientific databases – not exactly something most people want or even know how to do. And that's why I decided to start The Nootropics Zone – to provide science-based articles about nootropics that are easy to understand."
