Upon looking through Lucidal’s website we were introduced to Dr. Larry McCleary. At first we had our doubts, but after a little bit of research we were impressed to discover that Dr. McCleary is a legitimate doctor. Often companies higher actors to represent fake doctors who would then give a false authentication towards the company’s product. We’re glad to report that in this situation, that is not the case.
This product is primarily targeted towards older individuals who wish to prevent chances of memory loss as well as to improve memory recall. Even though it is aimed towards the elderly, the product is appropriate for use by all ages, as the formula contains nootropics that are beneficial for your brain regardless of age.
Manufacturers of Lucidal tend to keep their website updated with various testimonials, FAQs, and eBooks. The website also contains a lot of information regarding its product and its benefits, meaning they educate their users before attacking them with discounts and sale plans. Phew! Dr. McCleary is clearly aware of what he’s doing, which allows Lucidal to be a safe option for those interested.
The product is very popular online and seems to depend heavily on reviews and customer endorsements. Unfortunately, when looking through Lucidal’s page on Amazon.com, we were shocked to see that 25% of the reviews gave the product 1 of out 5 stars. The product itself is rated an overall 3.6 out of 5, which continues to be disappointing as we had higher hopes.
Luckily, when looking through some of the ingredients we were glad to witness some higher quality nootropics for a change. Usually, companies tend to use more inexpensive substances such as caffeine rather than including decent amounts of high-quality ingredients.
When scoping through the ingredients list, we noticed that Lucidal does indeed have a propriety blend, which allows them to hide the dosages of each of the ingredients. Despite this, we were also aware of all the truly effective nootropics in the supplement such as:
Vitamin C 75 mg
Vitamin D3 100 IU
Vitamin E 15 IU
Thiamin 20 mg
Riboflavin 20 mg
Niacin 25 mg

Although, we were unable to locate the supplement facts label anywhere on their website, (hmm….wonder why they decided to hide that!) we were surprised that the ingredients did include an incredible amount of vitamins and nutrients. Since this product is aimed towards the elderly, having multivitamins in the supplement would save them from consuming 3-4 pills a day. So, maybe this product isn’t so disheartening after all!
This products contains the following key ingredients:
Acetyl L-Carnitine: The improved version of Carnitine that not only helps in fat burn, but also offers benefits to the brain due to its ability to cross the brain-blood barrier.
Ginkgo Biloba: America’s favorite herbal supplement that helps benefit the brain in two ways: it improves blood flow to tissues and organs, and it is also an antioxidant preventing oxidative damage to cells. Ginkgo is believed to greatly help with memory recall and concentration, while also working on reducing brain fog.
Huperzine A: A natural supplement that is known to increase the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain.
Despite the slightly low ratings on Amazon.com, the product seems to be doing very well as a majority of expert websites claim that this product works quite effectively. To our surprise, quite a substantial amount of supplement critiques even mentioned how useful this particular product is in helping to fight age-related brain function decline by enhancing memory.
A bottle of Lucidal comes with 90 capsules and is set at the price of $74.99. When taken at the suggested dosage of 3 capsules a day, this product should easily last you about 30 days. The price is relatively high, especially when considering that most of the elderly are living on their retirement savings. However, based on the positive effects attainable from the product, the price seems to be considerably reasonable.
Overall, Lucidal seems to work efficiently particularly due to its success of improving memory. The pricing of the product is a little higher than we would prefer it to be, which explains why we have not rated it our #1 for memory enhancement. However, if you’ve tried Lumonol and it doesn’t seem to work for you, then Lucidal would definitely be a recommended buy.
