What is a nootropic or smart drug by Dr Andrew Hill?
Dr Andrew Hill, the lead Neuroscientist at truBrain explains that a smart drug is generally a prescribed medication used to treat some kind of cognitive disorder. Smart drugs may enable focus and energy but they are also known to cause side effects in some people. Smart drugs can be habit forming and have negative effects on appetite, mood stability, cardiac function, stress levels and from prolonged use can cause irritability, mood swings, anxiety and sleep issues amongst other things.
Nootropics on the other hand, says Dr Andrew Hill are generally a non-prescribed compound that improves cognition without appreciable side effects. They are comprised of vitamins, herbs and either natural or synthetic supplements and may increase or protect cognition. Research shows that nootropics can have effects on focus, attention and positive effects on ageing – a fantastic supplement if you want to improve your cognitive function and performance in pursuit of a limitless mind!
What is truBrain?
truBrain, an active nootropic blend, designed by top neuroscientists (Dr Andrew Hill), gives you the competitive edge of focused cognitive performance as an everyday alternative to over-reliance on caffeine and energy drinks.
truBrain ingredients for a Limitless Mind
Magnesium maintains a proper level of neuron stimulation. It’s responsible for hundreds of reactions in your body and is a necessary element for balancing energy.
Is used to build and repair cell membranes, supports memory and focus, and improves brain structure. Choline is a key ingredient of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, used by the brain in attention, memory, and learning.
Designed to boost information processing, attention, learning, and memory. It may increase neurotransmission, mitochondrial function, blood flow, oxygen consumption, cell membrane fluidity, and may have neuroprotective benefits.
Harvested from high-protein foods like lima beans and avocados, Tyrosine has been shown to improve alertness following a less than ideal sleep. Tyrosine is a precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which can raise energy levels, increase vigilance and improve attention and mood. Tyrosine has also been selected to counteract the decline of cognitive function in response to high levels of stress.
Aids in stimulating attention, learning, and memory. Each monthly box contains 4 turbo packets, led by Oxiracetam. Oxiracetam may be used for a boost in analytical reasoning and overall cognitive function. Oxi binds lightly to receptors in the brain, effectively utilizing the existing neurotransmission machinery. Not suitable for every day of the month.
Found in fish and animal sources, acetyl-l-carnitine is a superior form of carnitine for absorption into body and brain. Carnitine plays an important support role in providing sustained energy at the cellular level. It can help increase energy production in the mitochondria, the “power plants” of all cells, and may boost physical and mental energy. It’s an acetylated version of Carnitine that helps to maintain overall good health by facilitating the transfer of fatty acids into cellular energy production. It is claimed to act as a potent antioxidant, and may be neuroprotective, preventing deterioration and functional decline.
Has a strong capacity to promote relaxation and increase focus. Theanine is shown to increase the production of alpha waves in the brain, and may be neuroprotective. L-Theanine delivers its calming effects through increased gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) levels in the brain. GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that produces a calm feeling, and may protect neurons from excitotoxicity.
Omegas are key to a healthy brain. Most people think DHA comes from fish, but in reality, fish don’t produce DHA at all. They instead get it through the algae they eat. The key with essential fatty acids is maximizing omega 3s and minimizing Omega 6s. Omega 3 fatty acids are crucial in reducing cell damage and rebuilding cell membranes.
truBrain is also vegan & non-GMO.
