Berocca Performance 50+ Review: For Busy Seniors Who Want to Keep The Bounce In Their Step
Our First Impressions
Berocca Performance 50+ is a product designed for a very specific niche – they target folks over the age of 50 who are active and continue to have the yearning desire to get the best out of each day. Berocca promises to be able to help seniors achieve this through their multi-vitamin formula, which can boost mental performance and physical energy. Berocca does not claim to be able to assist with or cure any age-related diseases, so if you’re looking for the next best memory-boosting product for your parents then keep looking because you haven’t reached the right destination with Berocca.
If you, your parent or your grandparent is an active, motivated individual who just needs a bit of a push to excel in your dynamic life then Berocca 50+ is something to consider. Hard to believe that this simple vitamin-based formula can beat that of Lumonol Wisdom’s aka our favorite cognitive boosting product for seniors, but it surely deserves a fair go.
Berocca, as a brand, consists of a lot of different products all of which aim to do three things –boost physical energy, support mental performance and provide the body with essential nutrients. All Berocca products are composed of vitamins and minerals, so it’s definitely suitable for everyday use. Some people use Berocca Performance to replace their daily multi-vitamin – this makes sense considering the nature of Berocca’s formula. However, because others hope to use Berocca to help them wake up and feel more alert at the beginning of the day. This unfortunately won’t work as Berocca does not contain any stimulants i.e. caffeine. Berocca is manufactured by a larger company known as Bayer, which has been involved in the field of health care and pharmaceuticals for over 100 years.
We’ve taken a look at Berocca Performance 50+’s ingredients and we must say that there’s not a lot to discuss here. The concentration and clarity boosting formula contains the following compounds:
Read through the list yet? You now probably understand what we meant by what we said beforehand. The only ingredient worth talking about is 150 mg of Panax Ginseng. A lot of people argue as to whether or not Panax Ginseng is an effective nootropic, but one thing is for sure – it’s not a filler ingredient. Based on our experience and research, Panax Ginseng is one of the most powerful herbs that can instantly provide your mind with more clarity and focus. Panax Ginseng is also quite gentle and does not usually lead to any type of side effects, making it perfectly recommendable for all ages. Berocca Performance 50+ mixes Panax Ginseng with a blend of essential vitamins, including Vitamin B6 and B12 – both of which help to generate mental energy and may prevent memory deterioration.
None of us here are above the age of 50, but we thought to ourselves “why not give this thing a try?” Besides, there’s nothing in the formula that makes it different than our own multi-vitamins, so there’s seriously no harm in giving it a go. Two men from our team agreed to give Berocca Performance 50+ a try over the weekend. One member had a marathon planned for Saturday and the other was taking a roadtrip with his girlfriend to visit his old man. They popped one tablet into a glass of water per day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the morning. By Monday, they were back at the office and ready to give us their thoughts on the product.
This is what we heard – the guy who did the marathon didn’t feel like the product helped much. He had this usual pre-workout around 30 minutes before the run, so it’s possible that the energy boost from the pre-workout masked the results of Berocca. The other member, however, was a fan of both the flavor and effects of the product. He said that it’s a convenient way of starting your day and is a particularly good option for those who don’t like the jittery side effects of caffeine. Berocca made him feel lighter and healthier. Some would say that he experienced nothing more than a placebo effect, but at the end of the day, if it worked, it worked!

Yes, that was the only decent customer review we could find online. But don’t see this as such a bad thing because Berocca is mostly purchased in local pharmacies instead of online, which explains the lack of consumer reviews.
If you live in the States like we do then you’re going to have to order the product online for around $10 at most. Some sites that you can order from are PharmacyOnline.com.au, YourChemistShop.com.au and ePharmacy.com.au. With this option, you will have to cover shipping costs, which may end up doubling the cost of your overall purchase. For this reason, we think that Berocca Performance 50+ is a better option for people who live in Australia or New Zealand. If this is the case for you, then feel free to get the supplement from any local pharmacy.
So you read our review and hoped that you would be able to make up your mind as to whether or not to buy this product. Do you still feel uncertain? Not to worry! Let us help you out. To decide if Berocca Performance 50+ is the right supplement for you or your loved one, there a few questions that you should give some thought. Firstly, would you consider yourself or your loved one an active person? If not, then keep looking for other options. Secondly, do you live in Australia or New Zealand? If not, keep in mind that there are products manufactured in the States that can bring the same results without all the shipping hassle. Thirdly, are you more looking for a multi-vitamin or are you searching for a super-effective cognitive boosting product? If it’s the second one, something like Lumonol Wisdom would be a much smarter option. We hope that our guidance has helped make your mind up about Berocca Performance 50+! See you guys next time.
