For those who have to constantly fight to stay concentrated on a task, or to stay awake during class, day-to-day life can be quite challenging. Many people suffer from a foggy brain and a slow memory, but for many of us, our inability to focus clearly can be debilitating. Perhaps you’re overwhelmed with life and you just need some extra help. If you want to avoid prescription medication and instead want something intense but natural to help you fuel your mind throughout the day, then the company Nature Boost Labs might just have the product for you.
The company Nature Boost Labs has produced a supplement that aims to wow the crowds. It was difficult to find more information on Nature Boost Labs, but it appears that Nature Boost Labs produces only one stellar supplement, and that supplement has been rightly named Focus Boost. Like a boost for your brain, the supplement Focus Boost is a mind-enhancing supplement for most people looking to rid themselves of murky thoughts. Focus Boost has apparently been featured in the media and has a 90-day guarantee (if more than 70% of the tablets are returned). The website was nicely laid out, although finding an actual label from a real bottle was not easy to find. However, we decided to continue checking out Focus Boost in order to see if this was really the supplement for us.[i]
After studying the website a bit longer, we discovered links to each of the ingredients at the bottom of the page. Again, Nature Boost Labs does not easily display the nutritional label for Focus Boost, so we do not know how much of each ingredient the formula contains. However, the first ingredient listed is Vinpocetine.
Vinpocetine is an extract from the periwinkle plant and is believed to boost the flow of blood to the neural system and as a result, improve mental communication and induce mental sharpness. Yet it is important to know that labelling Vinpocetine ‘natural’ is a bit tricky. Yes, Vinpocetine comes from a plant, but the production of the extract Vinpocetine is extremely technical and therefore, Vinpocetine is most often labelled a chemical substance by scientists.
Another ingredient is Bacopa, which is an herb used in India for centuries as a means of relieving anxiousness and encouraging one to concentrate. Next on the list is Acetyl-L Carnitine, which is an amino acid that boosts the production of energy in the mitochondria of cells. Acetyl-L Carnitine, also known as ALCAR, is key for the proper function of daily bodily functions. One more ingredient in the formula is Citicholine, which is believed to increase the production of norepinephrine and dopamine. These neurotransmitters travel through the body and improve one’s focus and allow one to remain alert.
The final two ingredients in Focus Boost might seem contradictory, but believe it or not, many nootropics combine these two ingredients. The first of these often-paired supplements is L-Theanine, which comes almost exclusively from teas and is found in the greatest amount in green tea. Green tea has been drunk and is still drunk by millions across this world for its calming effect. In seemingly opposition to L-Theanine is caffeine. Focus Boost contains caffeine, although interestingly enough, the amount of caffeine is not clearly listed. [ii]
For us, this was an immediate turn off. While there is nothing inherently wrong with caffeine, many people across this world have sensitivities to caffeine. And to order this product and then discover that the amount of caffeine contained is beyond your toleration limit, then your money has been wasted.
So we turned to the web for a greater idea of what was in Focus Boost. We found several reviews online, and actually most were positive. However, after further study, we discovered that most of the reviews were questionable and perhaps even fake.
Focus Boost offers a bottle containing either 30 or 90 capsules. The prices are $56 or $90 respectively. If you are new to nootropics then we recommend buying the 30 capsule bottle and taking 1 capsule daily. If you have a higher tolerance, however, then it would be suggested to buy the bottle of 90 capsules and take up to (but not more than) 3 capsules per day.
After exhausting all resources, we were left a bit uncertain. While all of the ingredients in Focus Boost are well known and respected, and perhaps even useful, without being able to see the actual nutritional facts and especially without knowing how much caffeine is included, we were a bit disappointed. However, if you’re willing to risk it, then go for it! Focus Boost might just be the perfect supplement for you.
