LumUltra. Okay, readers, I'll get straight to the point. Website's well-written and streamlined, product looks good, yada yada yada; you've heard it all already. What you're really interested in is: Does it work?

I'm speaking as a customer who's actually bought and tried it. Specifically, first I bought a 30-day pack of LumUltra's regular capsules, which I took two per day with meals. As stated, it took several days for me to notice any effect, but I did indeed see a marked increase in what I call "flexible energy" -- the stuff that lets you actually transition from one task to the next smoothly, as in, without too much "lag time" between tasks. I felt like I could move much more fluidly with my day-to-day life. I did notice that my brain almost seemed to move too fast for my body to keep up with; at a few points, I caught myself moving in a direction a split second before I registered the movement in time to correct my posture, perhaps avoiding a slip-up. It was nothing truly dangerous; just my body trying to adapt to the new substance.
Impressed, I later bought the 90-day pack that included 3 bottles of the regular capsules, and 3 jars of "LumUltra Smart Drink". I took the capsules as usual, and then mixed one scoop (the jars come with a plastic scoop inside) of the Smart Drink powder in with a glass of water. It's actually really good; it tastes like sweet strawberry juice or kool-aid without the sugar. I began seeing the effects there much quicker than with the capsules. It felt like a gentle wake-up call to my senses, prepping me for the day to come by not just giving me a jump, but putting my system in balance. I'm not sure how much of that was the formula or the placebo effect, though, which is a possibility.
As the manufacturer says, LumUltra's effects take a while to fully manifest, and it's helpful to maintain a pattern of consumption (five days on, two days off, one month off every 90 days) so that the body is less likely to adapt to the formula. I'm pretty sure I adapted anyway, though, or maybe the aforementioned placebo effect -- which could have easily been caused by the excitement over finally having 'the key to unlocking my full potential' -- just wore off after a while. Maybe it was both. In any case, I started noticing the effect less and less, and that was when I still had plenty of LumUltra left.
I don't feel that I was able to make any really groundbreaking progress with this supposedly miracle nootropic substance, though I won't deny, it does have some very real, and very good benefits. Still, it could just be my own personality problems that stopped me from doing anything major while I was under LumUltra's effect. I was never the kind of guy to "rock the boat", not like the cult-famous main character from the movie Limitless. I know I can't speak for everyone, since LumUltra's mood- and energy-boosting effects might be enough to push someone else into accomplishing something big. But for me, LumUltra was not NZT. It was not the thing that I've been hoping for to launch me into my own personal golden age.
My conclusion: Yes, LumUltra works. The capsules alone might not be enough, though; I had to pair it with the Smart Drink formula to get a speedy and consistent cognitive boost throughout most of the day. I have now recently tried LumUltra Nova, as well, and I can confirm that that works too. It's like caffeine pills without the crash, thanks to whatever else they put in there to balance it out. You might want to take that instead of coffee or 5-Hour Energy, in fact. I'd recommend it.
