Unlike it’s daily use nootropic, Thrivous designed Surge for occasional use when an increase in energy and focus is needed. Thrivous also aims to reduce the side effects from caffeine with it’s Surge nootropic. The Thrivous Surge formula is guided by peer-reviewed scientific studies, which has enabled them to identify nootropic ingredients with the greatest potential to promote mental performance beyond what can be achieved through traditional lifestyle choices alone.

Surge contains nootropic ingredients at concentrations and amounts based on high levels of scientific evidence for notable effect from peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies on humans. Thrivous Surge is made from substances found in the human diet, including minerals, herbs, and amino acids. It does not contain any substances that have derived from animals. All of the contained ingredients and capsules are vegan and gluten free.

Thrivous is very confident in their formulation and are very open with sharing it with the world. This is something that really sets the brand apart from some of its competitors. The Nootrolist team is a big fan of transparency when it comes to nootropic supplements, so we can appreciate that. The open-source, always evolving formula is great for consumer trust but could also prove to be a negative if the product is constantly changing over time.

Another good sign for the validity of the Clarity nootropic is a strong call out to the Certificate of Analysis, which shares all test results from their suppliers and manufacturers. They hold the suppliers of Clarity’s ingredients to stringent quality control measures. All of their suppliers are certified to meet cGMP regulation from the FDA.

In our analysis of user feedback for the the Thrivous Surge nootropic, we’ve noticed that users feel the formula is a powerful combination of nootropic ingredients. Users note that the sum of the ingredients contained within Surge are greater than their parts. It is, however, worth noting that product reviews are difficult to find online.

How Much Should I Take?

Thrivous formulated Surge for occasional, non-daily use. Unless otherwise indicated by your physician, we recommend that you take one serving of one capsule when you need extra energy and focus. Do not take Surge daily, or you may develop a tolerance. Avoid taking Surge before sleep, or you may have difficulty sleeping. You should not take more than four capsules in a single day.

Is it Safe?

In our extensive background check of Thrivous and the Surge product, we believe that it is very safe to take for both users new to nootropics and people who have been supplementing for many years. Their all-natural ingredients, transparency in formula, certificates of analysis, and peer-reviewed research make Thrivous Surge a safe nootropic choice.

What to expect when taking Thrivous Surge.

Thrivous designed Surge to increase energy and focus. For most people, the effects will be notable or strong. Thrivous selected each ingredient of Surge for its nootropic effect based on multiple peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. Caffeine may increase energy. L-Theanine may reduce side effects from Caffeine. And Ginseng may improve focus.

Our Take.

We’ve tried the Thrivous Surge product, and while we did notice an increase in energy and a mild uptick in focus, the effects were mild when compared to much stronger nootropics like Modafinil. Thrivous Surge, taken in conjunction with the rest of the Thrivous Stack of nootropics can be an effective nootropic for beginners or for users looking for a slight increase in mental performance.
