What You Should Know
Gungho is an interesting dietary supplement that claims to help students and consumers increase energy, memory and concentration. Specifically, the product gives users the focus of a ninja. Much of the front page of the website looks like a comedy sketch and that takes away from the seriousness of the supplement. Even if it did work as claimed the company would lose some of the interested consumer base because of the website.
List of Ingredients
- Cognizin Citicolene
- Ashwaganda Root
- Guarana Seed Extract
- Kola Nut Extract
- Eleuthero Extract
- Xanthan Gum
- Potassium Sorbate
- Sodium Benzoate
The only ingredient on the list we’ve never come in contact with is Cognizin Citicolene. We found an official website for the ingredient, but it appears the one ingredient is a combination of ingredients. There are not details listed on the Cognizin website, but we did notice quite a few misspelled words, including the word brian power for brain power.
Other than the brain-boosting Cognizin, Gungho also contains common ingredients like caffeine, guarana seed extract and kola nut. All three of these stimulants work to boost energy and metabolism, but they all also supply caffeine. Taking too much caffeine can cause negative side effects. To determine whether or not this could be a problem with Gungho we would need to know how much caffeine is supplied and that information is not revealed.
We are slightly concerned with a warning listed on the ingredient label for Gungho. According to the warning, users should be wary of using Gungho if they are under 12 years old – we suggest under 18. There is also mention of side effects associated with taking too much caffeine. Niacin, a B vitamin, may cause the skin to feel flush and hot. Most consumers think this is the fat burner boosting metabolism, but Gungho reveals the reaction is nothing more than the Niacin effect.

Gungho may be ideal for the gamer who wants to stay up for hours or the student who needs that boost the morning after studying almost the entire night. What we do NOT suggest is taking a supplement with caffeine without knowing how much caffeine you are taking. There are tons of diet and energy supplements from companies more than willing to reveal how much caffeine is included in each dose. Transparency is crucial when it comes to stimulants and Gungho is not transparent about the ingredients.
