Brain Fire Review: Cheeky Marketing Practices
Our First Impressions
We began taking brain supplements very seriously when we realized just how many people’s lives are being changed from this business. Those with ADD/ADHD who had major focus issues have now become good students in school, elderly folks who had terrible memory disabilities can now recognize their children again and thirsty entrepreneurs who were always stuck finally found the ideas to make their company bloom. All these great stories are a result of the hard work and dedication that many supplement companies have put into their products. Getting a bunch of ingredients and putting them together is easy, but finding the perfect formula that can work effectively and ensure safety is a great challenge. While some manufacturers continue to strive for excellence, others are simply in it for the money. When it comes to Brain Fire, we can’t help but be a little suspicious. Their marketing practices are very sketchy, to say the least, and we can’t seem to find any legitimate customer reviews online. Nevertheless, we must go through all aspects of the product before reaching a dark conclusion. Let’s begin.
Brain Fire is self-manufactured, meaning that a bunch of kids in their early 20’s probably get hired to mix a bunch of ingredients in a dark garage somewhere in downtown L.A. every Friday night. Just kidding!!! Brain Fire’s official website consists of one page which basically advertises the product’s effectiveness and gives a brief outline of what the product can do for you. Along the top of the page are links to various social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and more. Curious to see how many Facebook fans they have, we decided to follow their link. A new window popped up showing us our personal Facebook account and whether we want to share a post of Brain Fire’s newest deals. Thanks, but no thanks.
Nowhere on the website are the ingredients mentioned. We also could only find one other website that provided a list of some of the ingredients included in the formula. According to trybrainfire.com, each pill contains:
- DMAE Bitortrate: A banned substance that can cause neural damage if used in the long-term.
- Bacopin – Supports cognitive functions such as memory and learning.
- Phosphatidylserine – May help prevent mental decline and memory related diseases.
- Vinpocetine – Increases blood flow to the brain and increases oxygen use by the brain, resulting in improved memory and neural communication.
- Ginkgo Biloba – Although some claim that this herb can support cognitive function, there are no clinical trials that confirm this statement completely.
The company’s decision not to disclose any information regarding the formula stirred a great deal of skepticism from our part. We always want to see that the companies we evaluate are confident about their products – this show reliability.
Interestingly enough, when you click on “Buy Now”on their official website, you will be linked to a site selling a product called Synapsyl. Is this another red flag. We’ll leave it up to you to decide. Thankfully, there are other review sites that provide the product’s cost: one bottle of 60 capsules comes at a price of $53.98. We personally find this to be pretty expensive for a totally mysterious product.
Brain Fire’s marketing techniques are extremely questionable. All the nonsense starts with their main advertising page, which we have shown below:
This landing page does not give any information about the product’s ingredients or price – just like the company’s official website. Additionally, the page is plastered with commands written in block letters that produce a sense of urgency for us to buy the product. “RUSH MY ORDER”? But what’s with all the rush? If you still are very eager to try out the product, we recommend that you contact this company via telephone before giving them your credit card details. But don’t be surprised if the line leads to a little girl somewhere in Asia who has no clue what BrainFire is.
