Cerebral Success on the Shark Tank

Brain Food Supplement - Episode 522 - 4-25-2014

Brain Food Suppliment
Cerebral Success
seen on Shark Tank Episode 522
 The #1 Best Brain Food Supplement "Cerebral Success" is coming to the Shark Tank with a product that's guaranteed to help all entrepreneurs succeed. We all know how important taking supplements for our bodies are, but what about feeding our brains with proven ingredients that help stimulate our brains power? Each capsule of Cerebral Success contains Phosphatidyl Serine, Vinpocetine, Choline, Bocapa, Huperzine – A, Ginkgo Biloba, all proven ingredients to help stimulate and improve your brain and memory power.

The entrepreneur behind Cerebral Success Capsules is Trevor Hiltbrand, from Provo, Utah. Trevor first conceived the idea for his brain supplement while attending BYU, and with lots of positive reviews later, has catapulted the success of his invention for a spot on the next Shark Tank Show in episode 522. The ingredients used in each capsule influences four areas of the brain at the same time, more focus, mental energy, better memory, and brain health. When combined, Cerebral Success SmartX claims to give you a much-needed edge to keep your mind working in tip top condition.

Cerebral Success before Shark Tank Update

While looking at the previews for Cerebral Success on Episode 522 which will air on ABC this Friday night, Hiltbrand wastes little time demonstrating how effective this brain power supplement works, especially for college students needing to cram lots of information in a short amount of time. Obviously going in front of the Sharks selling a memory booster product, you'd think Trevor's brain would be working at peak levels correctly memorizing his pitch to the Sharks, right? While all the claims may be true for the #1 Ranked Best Brain Supplement on the market, the one ingredient missing might have to do with calming your nerves while pitching to 5 very successful Shark Tank Investors. The brief clip shows Trevor forgetting part of his pitch that might not give the Sharks the best impression for this focus enhancing supplement.

Another concern the Sharks might have for some of the claims made by Cerebral Success is it doesn't seem to have been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration at this time. Hiltbrand's product doesn't claim to cure or prevent any disease, but merely a supplement using proven ingredient's to stimulate the brains power. As with every product in this category seen on the Shark Tank making claims without the blessing of the FDA, this has proven to be a tough sale when looking for the Sharks to invest. As a matter a fact, I can't think of a single product on the Shark Tank that got an investment without already having FDA approval.

The Sharks might be a little skeptical if Cerebral Success stimulates the brain's power, but what about the reviews from customers who have already tried this brain supplement. The reviews for Cerebral Success on Amazon give this product a 4-star rating out of 5 stars. The comments seem a little mixed, but overall most customers report this product does indeed help them focus more and improve their mental energy levels.

No doubt this is one Shark Tank Episode I won't forget to watch if I can only remember what time the Show begins on ABC?

  1. Hi. I am Trevor Hiltbrand - the entrepreneur behind Cerebral Success. Thanks for the write up.

    Couple of things...
    1) I absolutely was nervous. Cerebral Success wont make you have a perfect memory and totally calm under pressure. However, it does have ingredients that HELP. I would have hated to see myself without it.
    2) Supplements don't need FDA approval. Only drugs that are intended to "cure or prevent diseases" require FDA approval. That is the industry. Supplemental ingredients, are however, regulated by the FDA and Cerebral Success is completely compliant.

    We have come a long way since filming for Shark Tank. Hopefully we will get a followup interview so that we can share our progress with the world.

    Hope that helps clarify things. Thanks again.

      Trevor, we just watched you on TV here in Toronto and I thought you did great. Especially with the sharks ganging up on you, which will make you and your story all the more ... memorable (get it?). Ha ha. Best wishes on your venture.

    2. A. Stephens, MD8:18 AM

      Hi Trevor,
      I'm curious about your academic background. What did you learn that made you choose these particular ingredients?

    3. Anonymous7:47 PM

      When you consider the products on the market today including every single thing sold at GNC , Vitamin Shoppe and others, I don't see why the sharks were being such huge assholes about ethics. Especially baldy who always wants to ship the prospects products to China for manufacturing.

    4. Anonymous8:16 AM

      For sure. I suspect they're part of the population that has an inherent distrust towards supplements due to wide variety of snake oil that *has* been sold.

      For a sufficiently lenient definition definition of "disease", by which I mean "performing significantly below optimal, achievable levels", everyone is sick. There is no such thing as a perfectly healthy person. Supplements, nootropics, etc. are one of the many methods we'll use to cure some of our mental and physical dysfunctions and reach higher and higher. It is entirely possible for people, even those alive today right now, to function way better than your average person does, and the fact is life is much more enjoyable when you are functioning better.

  2. I am excited to see this stuff come to the campus bookstore here in Waterloo, Ontario. I'm 56 doing an Honours Psych Program, and holding my own against the youngsters. But I would be very interested in a natural product that will combat the effects of just plain being an older student. My one concern is that your pricing was way outta my league. I wouldn't pay more than $30 a month for any type of supplement. If it comes to Waterloo, and it's affordable, I shall be your most loyal customer. Best wishes for great success.

  3. The whole time I watched this pitch, I was excited to see something like this on the show. I understand what it's like having to deal with people's skepticism about this kind of product. I spent a good few years working with an energy drink company who boasted similar effects for their drink/ingredients and it was often received with mixed feelings. When the sharks seemed so upset, namely Roberts, my mind was blown. Your marketing strategy seemed perfectly sound and legitimate to me, and not in any way "sleazy". Grats to you, sir for getting something like this out there to market and giving it some real exposure.

    Just because our laws only apply to products that cure or prevent disease does not mean that it is ethical to peddle whatever compound you wish for people to pay for and put into their bodies. Being a supplement does not at all mean safe. Too much Vitamin A causes liver damage, ephedrine when unethically peddled as a supplement killed people, Vitamins D, E and K can also cause pretty severe problems. The list of supplements that can cause health problems at higher levels is actually quite long. So they should be treated with respect and not slammed together by some kid who doesn't understand neuroscience nor PKPD (pharmacokinetics pharmacodynamics - basically understanding how compounds interact with each other and with individual peoples' specific physiology). Many things that are good for you through food or at low levels are demonstrated to be toxic at high levels or because they are in industrialized pill form (all things in a pill or liquid have had to go through chemical processes. Does your vitamin c pill look like an orange to you? They didn't just squeeze vitamin c into a powder and then press it. The chemical in your vitamin isn't even the same chemical that is in your food). Remember, there is nothing less natural than getting your nutrients in a pill. If it is capable of making changes in your brain chemistry ask yourself if that is something that is totally benign to your body. I actually believe in supplements, when we have studied and understand both the compounds and combinations of compounds in them. His disclosure of "no one should take this if they are on any other medication or have any condition or illness" is terrifying. If he has to protect himself that much, he is not acting with full transparency or knowledge about the products' safety and probably efficacy.

    The sharks weren't concerned about it not being FDA approved, they were concerned that someone who knows nothing about the safety and efficacy of his product wants to peddle a mixture of compounds to very young people that could be dangerous, especially at high doses, or useless which is what about half of the comments on Amazon say. Many supplements have been demonstrated to be dangerous, vitamin A causes liver damage as just one example.

    What I saw was a genuine generation gap at work. The sharks have been away from college for a long time, when the only aids for staying awake, let alone memory aid, was caffeine (NoDoz, coffee etc). I thought Barbara's point about the epidemic of Adderall use on campuses (even high schools) was important, and supplements are used for all kinds of endeavors -- sports supplements, energy drinks -- sure, there is a risk associated with everything you ingest. But this younger college-age group is a hell of a lot more aware of the risks of drugs and supplements than any before. I think it's great that he's getting a shot.

  7. Trevor I think you have a viable product and I think you were terrific in front of those tycoons. You will have success. And I can't help but say that for clothing magnate Daymond John to suggest he has an ethical dilemma with your product is laughable. Where do you think he has sourced all his manufacturing? Any way you did great. Good luck

    1. Anonymous6:40 AM

      You misunderstand their reservations regarding the ethical aspect of his pitch. His example of a desperate student buying this product to succeed on a test was telling the sharks that they could make money via desperation. This is the ethical dilemma. People should promote their products because of their virtue, not because someone is desperate for anything to help them and this product says that it can.

  8. Anonymous9:00 PM

    So how did it turn out with Barbara as your investor?

  9. Anonymous6:29 PM

    Does anybody know if the product really works

  10. This product is ethically and morally wrong.

    A poor student works so hard to get a scholarship and losses to a lazy guy with pills.

    This is worse then giving steroids to athletes before competitions because you are giving nootropics to students before tests.

    Would you trust a doctor who could not graduate on his own and had to take nootropics?

  11. Brain Booster is scientifically formulated to improve memory, concentration and cognitive performance naturally. I don't know exactly how this product works and benefits the users can get from taking, but I think if it is made of natural ingredients then it can help boost memory and brain functions.
