Dr. Larry Cleary’s Lucidal – the critically acclaimed secret formula that has been created, revised, and optimized to the point that it’s Dr. Cleary-approved. As a product of Dr. Cleary’s extensive years and expertise in the industry, it is his brainchild. Heavily marketed as the pill for memory, whilst aiding focus, it’s seen some popularity in the last few years. In light of all the hubbub and controversy, we put their claims to the test, to see whether or not Lucidal is able to come forth with flying colors, just as all its acclamation has it to be.


Nootropic Ingredients

One of the very first things we do when we receive a shipment of brain pills here at is to check out the ingredients listed in the Supplements Fact label on the back of the bottle. Often times, the ingredients are a bit wishy-washy on the internet – meaning that they’re not readily available, or you’ll have to jump through hoops of fire just to get to them.

Everything but the kitchen sink!! What’s most evident almost immediately looking at the Supplements Label on our Lucidal is that there’s really a lot going on here. This raises a red flag for us here. The more ingredients, the less potency. There’s only oh-so-many-milligrams that you can fit in one 750mg capsule. You may already be taking a few of these vitamins with your Multi-vit or exec B’s so check you’re not doubling up and doing yourself a mischief!


Brain Enhancing Effects

Our trials of Lucidal spanned a duration of 3 months, in which participants were asked to take a test uniquely designed to measure cognitive function.

What our participants almost immediately reported was that Lucidal did work! In fact, it worked pretty well. This was quite contradictory to our preliminary predictions concerning Lucidal, and we’ll say we were genuinely quite surprised. Unfortunately, though, it went sort of downhill from there, which was possibly due to tolerance after the initial phase.

Side Effects

It seems as if Dr. Larry Cleary is a genius. It’s not often when we see red flags and are able to say that we’re wrong with our preliminary conclusions. However, even past the trial phase, it seems as if Lucidal continues to impress us. There were no side effects present, aside from the common headache associated with high dosages of nootropics. This was easily remedied, though, by supplementing some extra Choline.

Aside from that, though, there were really none to be found, so Dr. Cleary cares about purity. Even at the maximum recommended dosage of 3-capsules-a-day, Lucidal left us stumped with its failure to produce a side effect. We were seriously impressed. It’s been widely seen in the nootropic industry: a product with side effects. This is often due to not the nootropic ingredients themselves, but often the filler ingredients. This was a relief for us.

Readers’ Score

Our readers chimed in on us with this one. They unanimously gave Lucidal a high score of not less than 7.5 Similar to our report, they’ve found that how Lucidal works with them greatly depended on trial-and-error to find the best dosage that suited them best. It seems as if Dr. Cleary, is also a man of the people, as he won the hearts of quite a number of our readers as well.

Well done, Lucidal. Score for Lucidal: 7.7 out of 10
