AddTabz is a quintessential quick profit product in the growing nootropics market. The maker of AddTabz is a company called Gentech, which makes several other opportunistic products, like a phen-phen alternative. There is AddTabz and AddTabz RX, rx of course implying prescription – which it isn’t. (I thought it was illegal to use RX in this way?) This marketing ploy, along with the use of the Z in Tabz is a typical direct response, Billy Mays’ trick to catch a few unsuspecting consumers who might think they are actually getting phen-phen or some type of powerful prescription pill. That’s just so old school. I wish they’d just be upfront. The company markets AddTabz in a way that makes the product sound almost ‘illegal’, claiming it is banned in a few countries or requires a prescription. Really? This snake oil idea is meant to specifically target young adults who, routinely, take substances thinking that because if they’re ‘illegal’ they must be good.
As you might expect, the website is so full of fluff and exaggerations it’s infuriating. You can only purchase AddTabz through their bombastic website or other sites that link back. There are several 60 count purchase options – 1 bottle for $79, 2 bottles for $149, 3 bottles for $213, 4 for $279, or even just 20 pills for $49.95.
The main ingredient in AddTabz is something called Ampheta-CDP, a made-up herbal supplement that they claim is a synthetic amphetamine. Again, do you think such a miracle discovery would be legal these days? In fact, there is a debate about what Ampheta-CDP really is. What I’m sure about is that this product contains no real nootropics and is about as effective for focus and cognitive function as a very, very expensive cup of coffee.
- Doesn’t seem legitimate
- Uses every online marketing trick in the book
Conclusion: If you want a real Adderall alternative, a product like AddTabz that contains a concoction of traditional supplements, is not the answer. AddTabz is the typical product from a hit-and-run internet retailer.
