It would be nice to find a way to focus on the important things in life while it throws itself at you from all directions.
Hitting the gym is one thing, but sometimes concentrating on getting in all those reps is tough when stress from work or play gets in your way.
Chaos & Pain’s Cannibal Genius boasts a formula that will help you see through the fog and beef up your mind to focus on your body. I’m going to explain just how it works in this review, so let’s get to it!
About Cannibal Genius
Cognitive enhancement supplement Cannibal Genius is put together by Chaos & Pain, who promise that it will put your brain into overdrive. Although its composition comes with some tried and true nootropics as well as some new ones, the dosage might leave a bit to be desired. Formula notes:
- No Proprietary Blends. You know exactly how much of each ingredient you’re getting.
- Noopept™. This powerful racetam-class cognitive booster is found in other kick-ass formulas.
- Low Dosage. Many of the ingredients come at smaller doses than one would hope for.

Cannibal Genius = an action-packed formula loaded with nootropics old and new
Nootropics aren’t only for nerds. In addition to Noopept, Chaos & Pain’s nootropic Cannibal Genius formula powers up your thinker with tried and true brain boosters like Ginkgo Biloba and Bocopa Monnieri for optimal performance. Before we weigh in on how Cannibal Genius stacks up against other nootropics, let’s get the scoop on the formula ingredients.
Alpha GPC, 150 mg: Alpha GPC is a type of choline normally present in the brain that helps to repair and maintain brain cells. As a more readily absorbed form of choline, research suggests that it may help with age-related mental decline as well as memory loss.
Ginkgo Biloba, 120 mg: We’ve all heard of this one. Long held by Traditional Chinese medicine to enhance cerebral circulation, recent research also suggests that this tried and true nootropic might be a fast-acting mental performance enhancer, too.
Acacia Rigidula, 100 mg: Acacia Rigidula leaves come from the American Southwest and contain the stimulant phenethylamine, which is used for accelerating weight loss and boosting athletic performance.
Sulbutiamine, 100 mg: This synthetic form of Thiamine (Vitamin B1) is designed to cross the blood brain barrier. Because low Thiamine levels are linked to brain degeneration, this emerging nootropic may be helpful in supporting mental energy and brain chemical balance.
Bacopa Monnieri, 50 mg: As one of today’s leading nootropics with a long history of use in Ayurvedic herbal practices, this herb works by boosting brain chemicals and circulation and brings with it adaptogenic anti-stress properties. With all these properties, research suggests that Bacopa seems to speed up thinking under stress, relax the mind, and improve learning capacity and memory. But the best nootropic stacks for mental dominance will always standardize Bacopa to supply active bacosides, which are the brain-boosters you want.
Acetyl L-Carnitine, 50 mg: Also called ALCAR, this synthetic nutrient can cross the blood-brain barrier more readily than plain carnitine. It also increases the amount of the brain chemical acetylcholine, which is important for memory and mental clarity.
Theanine, 50 mg: Mostly found in green tea, Theanine affects Alpha brain waves, which increases relaxation chemicals like GABA and blocks agitating brain chemicals. This creates a state often referred to as “wakeful relaxation” for your creativity, attention focus and productivity to be top-notch.
Noopept™ (N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester), 20 mg: Users describe this synthetic and patented nootropic as a much more potent alternative to piracetam. It is usually taken to help with anxiety, recall, and brain activity and may also have mild psycho-stimulant properties.
Vitamin D3, .625 mg: This common mineral is essential for calcium absorption and bone health and also plays a role in autoimmune disease prevention and has also been correlated with increased testosterone levels. Though our skin produces it when exposed to sunlight, due to our less-than-sun-friendly lifestyles these days, studies suggest that many may be deficient in this vital vitamin.
Cannibal Genius offers a pretty unique and non-traditional blend of ingredients. The Ginkgo Biloba, Bacopa Monnieri, and ALCAR are all well-known cognitive boosters and Chaos & Pain’s team should be applauded for including them and for leaving out any proprietary blends.
That being said, we were left a little unimpressed with the dosage of many of the key ingredients other than the Noopept™, which seems pretty normal. For example, the 150 mg dose of Alpha GPC included in the Cannibal Genius blend falls well short of the recommended daily 600 mg for those wishing to reap the benefit of this potentially powerful type of choline. Also, given the unstandardized forms of many of its ingredients, Cannibal Genius probably won’t deliver a worthwhile punch unless taken in quantities that exceed its standard serving size. With that in mind, the only benefits you’ll probably reap from Cannibal Genius will be those from the Noopept™.
Cannibal Genius Benefits
Noopept forms the basis of the formula for Cannibal Genius to give you the supplement you need to turn your brains into brawn and get your brain as sleek as your physique. will shift your brain into overdrive. Designed to bulk up your memory, focus and cognition, the acacia rigidula in conjunction with the Noopept may also brighten your mood and give you that energetic and cheerful focus that you’ve been missing out on.
What does Noopept™ feel like?
When you take Noopept™, it’ll feel a little something like this:
Research into this exciting new racetam has associated it with mildly stimulating cognitive effects, sharper recall, and an increase in neural activity. Users have reported that it beefs up their visual perception, specifically the textures and colors of the visual field, that it heightens the resolution of their olfactory sense, and that it cleaned up the experience of listening to music in that it sharpened the expression of individual voices. In general, they reported an all-around increase in the awareness of their surroundings and an increase in social skills and euphoria.
In terms of memory, they also noticed very strong effects in relation to both long- and short-term memory, with learned recently learned facts instantly coming to mind and long-lost experiences suddenly popping up vividly into the mind. Furthermore, they also discussed how Noopept™ positively affected their spatial memory and allowed them to remember exactly how they got to a certain place, even if the route there was new and complicated.
However, users stressed sticking to the recommended dose, as the sudden withdrawal of a high dosage level led to extreme irritability, depression and undesirable ideations. However, even when you stick to the recommended dose of 20mg per day, users have reported a slight but manageable increase in irritability, a petty price to pay given the stacked cognitive benefits they experienced.
Who Takes It?
Cannibal Genius is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18, for anyone pregnant or nursing. However, anyone looking to improve their cognitive performance or attention span should consider giving Cannibal Genius a try. It may also call out to all bros who who want to take their focus to another level when they want to hit their target reps in the gym.
Any Side Effects?
The dosages in this formula are very low and users have not reported any negative side effects other than being the one guy firing on all cylinders.

Final Word on Cannibal Genius
Cannibal Genius has a good composition to get your mind going down the right track. The absence of propietary blends means that you know exactly what you are getting into when you pop one of these puppies, something we consider to be a huge plus. Noopept™ is a great nootropic and comes in a bulked-up dose. However, with the measly doses of almost all the other ingredients in this blend, the only benefit you’re likely to get will probably come from the Noopept™ alone. Despite that, our suggestion is to give it a try and see if it gets your brain as well as your brawn on!
