What is the Cost?
It is now possible to buy this product both from the manufacturer’s website and from third party websites. If purchased directly from the manufacturer, one 90 capsule bottle costs $74.99 plus shipping costs (only in the US). If you purchase three bottles of Lucidal, you pay $169.99 and get a bonus present of Softgel Omega-3 plus an audio guide by Dr. Larry McCleary. If you purchase from a third party website, one bottle is $69.99 plus free shipping. The cost is quite high, in either case.
There is no satisfaction guarantee provided by the manufacturer.
Our Final Review of McCleary Scientific Lucidal
This product contains a lot of vitamins and is certainly packed with good ingredients. And it is caffeine free. Whether and how it improves memory and mood and the nerve cell functions to speed up the rate of the brain cells, we cannot say and there are almost no reviews from customers testifying to their experiences with the product, especially on the third party websites. Plus, the price is awfully high and so you would need to be able to afford Lucidal to begin with and not be priced out by the fact you’d need to pay around $70/month and that is quite a lot of money to be committing yourself to invest. Plus there is no guarantee so you’d need to hope that this product really does what it says it is going to do. Our recommendation is that you look into other products that are way less expensive and backed by the manufacturer that will give you full confidence that if you are unsatisfied with the product’s effectiveness, you would get 100% of your money back. This is the kind of reassurance that customers are looking for and deserve.
