We Say: Neuro is the pre-workout drink of the mighty ViSalus (Body By Vi) network and it's a well-liked, if slightly unspectacular, chug 30 minutes before gym time.
It contains Rhodiola extract which is believed to help fight fatigue (though the FDA aren't wholly convinced) and the amino acid Arginine which may help build muscle and boost Nitric Oxide levels.
The inclusion of DMEA (Dimethylaminoethanol) is promising though as several short-term studies have shown this compound to promote increased vigilance and alertness and improve mood.
They Say: ViSalus NEURO is a low-caffeine powdered energy drink mix that supports your body and brain with energy promoting ingredients, while also delivering other nutritional benefits.
The patent-pending blend of ingredients features Rhodiola Extract to help support stamina and endurance, along with DMAE to support brain function. Additionally, NEURO is formulated with natural caffeine (45 mg, which is less than that in 1/3 cup of coffee) combined with a blend of B vitamins to help support your body’s natural energy, and vitamin C for immune system support.

“Neuro is my favorite "get me going" supplement! I take it before workouts and/or cardio, and sometimes mix it in my shake.
“I am a rep for ViSalus, but not very active with it. I'm actually one of the people that use what they promote. LOL
“What it gives me is FOCUS! It makes you feel like getting sh*t done! LMAO! I have asthma so I have to be careful. This product makes me feel great without feeling jittery or weird. There's no crash either.”
