Although still young, I’d propose that Lumonol, as well as its sister products, are well on their way to being known as one of the top rated nootropic supplements available on the market today. Personally, I felt great after using Lumonol during my 30-day trial even though I’m sure I was only just starting to feel the real benefits being that Lumonol’s effects are cumulative and get stronger with each dose. All-in-all I personally loved Lumonol, Nova and Luna and would definitely recommend them all to a friend.
Firstly, If you haven’t heard about Lumonol before i’d suggest you start with my Lumonol Unboxing video and post which covers all the basics.
Manufactured by a company called Avanse Nutraceuticals, and sold online only through their official website, Lumonol enters the ever expanding Nootropic market as a well marketed, modern cognitive enhancer.
The website get a BIG thumbs up with it’s incredibly informative, modern and well designed and layout including a heap of customer testimonials and extensive FAQ section.
Lumonol is formulated and designed to have several beneficial effects on cognitive and brain function.
The product information claims that it ‘upgrades’ memory, improving focus, flow and processing speed while reducing anxiety, negative thoughts and lack of concentration.
A Closer Look at Lumonol
Containing many of the best known nootropic ingredients such as Citicoline, Phosphatidylserine and Ginkgo Biloba, Lumonol may have just stepped onto the stage as one of the best all-round nootropic supplements available today.
But before I dive right into this Lumonol review, first let’s take a small step back and take a quick look at how nootropics are defined as to dispel any misconceptions as people are often misled to think nootropics are something they’re not.
A Brief Description of Nootropics
You may have seen or heard Nootropics being referred to as “smart drugs” as they’re associated with increased intelligence, motivation, and mental energy.
But, unlike smart drugs, which have been known to cause negative side effects with long-term use in some cases, nootropics must be deemed as safe, enhance learning and memory, exhibit neuroprotective effects and show extremely low toxicity and almost no side effects to fit within the nootropic definition.
Nootropics are in fact a class of brain function enhancing supplements that are designed to improve concentration and boost memory power.
Each day a wide array of people use nootropics for a broad range of purposes such as; improving academic performance and boosting productivity, to supporting healthy brain function and preventing cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
In a nutshell, nootropics are designed to enable your brain to perform at it’s absolute best.
Now, let’s get back into the Lumonol review, shall we?
The Nootropic Review Criteria
As this was the first nootropic supplement I’d personally taken, I had nothing to compare it to other than energy enhancing substances such as coffee and guarana energy drinks such as Red Bull.
In fact, it wasn’t until I began to research nootropics myself that I realized coffee and Red Bull can also be considered as a nootropic!
After much research it seems most other nootropic reviews are focused on a few key elements which are;
As most nootropic supplements target multiple cognitive enhancing traits they’re ingredients are often broken down into formulas.
These formulas are a list of the supplements ingredients for the particular target trait.
Some nootropic aren’t completely transparent when it comes to the amount of any such ingredient within their supplement.
For example; Nootroo, a nootropic supplement that’s tailored for the Silicon Valley inventors and driven entrepreneurs, doesn’t disclose any information about the amount of ingredients within their product.
Does it have 1000mg or 1mg of Noopept?
That’s a BIG no-no in my perspective, wouldn’t you agree?
There are quite possibly hundreds of cognitive enhancing substances that could be included within a nootropic supplement but not all will deliver the desired results.
Fortunately we now know after years of research what nootropic ingredients are good, and what aren’t worth a plugged nickel.
Speaking of plugged nickles, money is what brings relevance to any product we purchase.
Upon each purchase we make we always (even subconsciously) ask the golden question – “Is it worth it?”
Round 1: Formula
Lumonol stands out as a one-size-fits all nootropic for a big reason – it’s formula or otherwise know as it’s ingredient list.
As you can well see from the ingredient list, Lumonol targets three main groups of ingredients that are known as ‘blends‘.
These blends each target different areas; memory, focus and energy allowing you to stay focused, increase mental clarity and alertness, so you can then power through your to-do list with ease.
This is a common trait for almost all nootropic supplements targeting the 20’s and 30’s age demographic.
What’s great about Lumonol is that it doesn’t have just one or two main active ingredients targeting each focus area, Lumonol has at least three ingredients per blend that are designed to synergise with each other to really pack a punch.
Round 2: Doses
Under the three target areas you’ll also notice the listed ingredients for each.
Now, remember how I was saying before that Notroo didn’t show the precise amount of each ingredient that goes into their supplement?
Unfortunately Lumonol does this to a certain degree, too.
However, what we can see though is for each target area, aside from Vitamin B12, we know the total amount for each group of ingredients.
On top of this we also know there is 15mg of the primary ingredient, Noopept.
…. Still, I’d like to know an exact amount for each ingredient.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
At it’s core, Lumonol features Noopept – a relatively new nootropic that is a cousin of Piracetam, the well-known (but powerful) cognitive enhancer.
In fact, Noopept is actually between 1,000 and 5,000 times as potent as piracetam and has higher bioavailability.
Translation? – this means more of the actual substance is usable by the body.
Noopept also influences the ability to store memories and the ability to recall them later, not just the beginning phase of memory creation (Piracetam does just this).
With Noopept at it’s core, Lumonol steps on stage as a top shelf Nootropic supplement.
To work in conjunction with Noopept, Lumonol contains some other well known nootropic substances, including Vitamin B6 and B12, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Ginkgo, Vinpocetine, and Huperzine A, to name a few.
The one and only ingredient that comes under fire within Lumonol is Picamilon.
I noticed that on the Lumonol website there is no explanation of this ingredient which led me to discover that Picamilon has come under fire recently by the FDA.
This could all blow over as there’s only speculation at this stage on the FDA’s rulings as I understand.
Round 4: Price
Lumonol’s low pricing point is definitely one of it’s strong points.
Not only is Lumonol VERY reasonably priced considering it’s range of ingredients, formulas and buyer information, but Avanse Nutraceuticals, the makers of Lumonol, also offer a TREMENDOUS amount of added extras and support for their buyers.
Some of the points I liked most when buying Lumonol were;

See what I mean?
Lumonol’s Sister Products – NOVA & LUNA
As I was primarily testing Lumonol itself as a stand-alone nootropic supplement I didn’t get the chance this time round to really put Nova and Luna to the full test.
Within my 30-day test of Lumonol I used Luna for a 5 day period with Lumonol, as well as using Nova for a separate 5 day period combined with Lumonol.
Testing Lumonol – Nova
Nova features caffeine, NALT which is a powerful mood enhancer, and L-Theanine – an extract that’s found in tea that smooths out the ‘jolt’ that often comes with caffeine while also helping to promote a functioning memory and reduced anxiety.
Nova I really loved and found that it was the extra edge I needed sometimes when I’d been up late the night before or had a massive work marathon to power through.
This is because as Nova can be taken on it’s own as a stand alone product, it was formulated to work at it’s best while being taken in conjunction with Lumonol.
I combined NOVA with Lumonol by taking two of the awesome looking fire engine red capsules approximately 2 – 3 hours after I took Lumonol in the morning.
The effects gradually came on roughly 20 – 30 minutes after ingestion and lasted a good 3 – 4 hours.
Testing Lumonol – Luna
Luna is really something I’d never come across before.
In talking to people who haven’t tried nootropic supplements before I’ve found that often their number 1 fear is being over-stimulated and fearing that they won’t be able to sleep at night.
Luna puts all those fears to rest.
(No pun intended)
Luna claims that you’ll have longer sleep periods, an enhanced mood throughout the day, improved memory and that you’ll wake up feeling refreshed, energized and with reduced anxiety.
Did it live it to it’s promise?
You bet it did!…I friggin’ loved Luna!
For the first time in a long time my alarm didn’t reach the fourth cycle of snooze in the morning.
I’m not claiming it made me look forward to getting up for work from my alarm – that’s just crazy.
It did though make me feel like I had a sufficient amount of rest each night and that I’d been able to achieve a deeper level of sleep than what I usually would.
Final Thoughts on Lumonol, Nova and Luna
Although still young, I’d propose that Lumonol, as well as its sister products, are well on their way to being known as one of the top rated nootropic supplements available on the market today.
Personally, I felt great after using Lumonol during my 30-day trial even though I’m sure I was only just starting to feel the real benefits being that Lumonol’s effects are cumulative and get stronger with each dose.
All-in-all I personally loved Lumonol, Nova and Luna and would definitely recommend them to a friend.
