On this page I will now be reviewing Alpha Brain.
Just got my Alpha Brain in the mail! In this video I go over the positive aspects of this supplement(nootropic) by Onnit Labs.
The claim of Alpha Brain is that it is “Shown to help support memory and focus”, in their own words(this is what it says on the front label).
It also is said to be “Made with earth grown botanicals”.
Each bottle contains 30 capsules, and the bottle lists the serving size as 2 caplets, equating to 15 servings per bottle.
It is also important to note that this product contains soy, in addition to the main ingredients listed below.
Here are the ingredients:
|Ingredient||Amount Per Serving|
|Vitamin B6(As Pyridoxine HCl)||10 mg|
|Onnit Flow Blend – L-tyrosine, LTheanine, Oat (straw) Extract, Phosphatidylserine||650 mg|
|Cat’s Claw (bark) Extract (ac-11©)||350 mg|
|Onnit Focus Blend – L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine (GPC), Bacopa (aerial parts) Extract, Huperzia serrata (aerial parts) Extract||240 mg|
|Onnit Fuel Blend – L-Leucine, Vinpocetine, Pterostilbene||65 mg|
For all ingredients on this list, the “Daily Value” (DV) has not been established, except for the Vitamin B6, which holds a 500% DV.
Remember- if you are taking this supplement, it may be necessary(from time to time) to abstain from taking it in order to give your body a “reset”.
You don’t want too much of any one substance building up in your body, as that could lead to undesirable side effects.
The B vitamins have a tendency to do this and we have received many negative reports from this. So be sure to remember that as a little aside. This really is key if you are trying to get things done in your focus endeavors.
Why Do So Many People Prefer Alpha Brain Over Other Nootropics?
As mentioned above Alpha Brain is a very popular nootropic- and there are several reasons for this.
First of all, Alpha Brain does not contain any caffeine- which is wonderful if you ask us.
A lot of other smart pills like Optimind for example- of course include caffeine because they want people to get a very noticeable “boost” when taking it.
This obviously is a great way for them to “hook” people(in their mind).
In reality, however, many people do not like it when caffeine is included in their brain supplements.
Most people prefer to be able to “independently control” their dosage of each particular substance they are putting in their body. Here at Cylene Pharma we also think that is a smart, safe idea that allows you to have more control over your health.
When companies mix in caffeine into all of these products, it really isn’t always the best situation.
They would be better off in many instances to have just left it out. People know they can drink a coffee or look to another caffeine source if they want that particular “jolt”.
Fortunately with Alpha Brain, however, this problem does not exist because they decided to go caffeine-less.
The main ingredients of the B vitamins and the n-acetyl L-tyrosine are more than enough to give most people a significant boost whenever they need to increase their focus and/or energy.
