Statistics say that 85.8% of men and 66.5% of the women in USA work more than 40 hours a week. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2016, an average employee worked 34.3 hours per week. Americans are not only working longer hours, but also working longer than most industrialized countries in the world. And not only employees, but students are overworked and overscheduled as well. Prescription medicines for ADHD are increasingly becoming common for them.
Thankfully, with the advent of nootropic supplements, people now have access to natural products that help in increasing memory, focus and concentration. These supplements are made of tested, natural and highly effective ingredients, and therefore are not usually accompanied by any harmful side effects. One such supplement is TruBrain, which is a brain booster designed to enhance mental endurance. According to Smart Pill Guide, a site that offers honest and comprehensive reviews for these products, TruBrain is increasingly gaining popularity among college students and working professionals.
TruBRAIN has been developed by collaboration between UCLA Neuroscientists Dr. Andrew Hill and Dr. Aida Attar, along with Chris Thompson, who is a former Unilever employee. The development of the product has been based on research data of the last 50 years, and thousands of studies that prove the benefits of the ingredients used in it, to enhance cognitive function. The makers claim, to have studied the brain wave patterns of successful people like artists, doctors, lawyers and CEO, on their good and bad days, to ultimately identify the optimal brain wave patterns, or the alpha brain waves that render us our higher functionalities.
The product is available in the form of both drink supplements and capsules. This nootropic stack is being claimed as a perfect combination of natural neuropeptides, which helps to increase verbal fluency, avoid distractions and improve upon our mental endurance.
Ingredients and Action-Mechanism
The formula works in a 4-step mechanism to increase blood flow to the brain, delivering the neurons more oxygen and glucose to function well.
Piracetam, Oxiracetam and Noopept help in building new neural pathways. These then modulate the acetylcholine receptors, which makes them more receptive to the precursor to the acetylcholine neurotransmitter called Citicoline. Magnesium, an important mineral, and L-tyrosine, an essential amino acid, both present in the formula, play a vital role in communication between the brain cells. Carnitine makes the neurons break down fatty acids and glucose, providing fuel for the brain to perform all these functions.
Apart from these, a combination of caffeine and L-Theanine, usually present in green tea, provides a sense of calm and focus.
