Not too long ago, I heard my friend, Ori Bengal, mention something called Nootropics on his Facebook wall. I had no idea what he was talking about. However, upon further research, I learned that nootropics at basically brain supplements. They are basically vitamins that help with memory, focus, writing, creativity, etc…
After hearing him mention these and doing some research, I kind of forgot about them for a while.
Then a couple months later, my partner, Josh Bartlett, mentioned that he was trying something called Alpha Brain, based on a recommendation from Joe Rogan’s podcast. I did some research on this supplement and was pretty intrigued by the claims. (Just as a note, I am not an affiliate of this product. I’ve got nothing to gain by talking either good or bad about it.)
I ordered a bottle of it and have been taking it for the past two months.
I have no idea if there’s a bit of a placebo effect or if this stuff actually works but I have noticed a difference.
Honestly, my brain is always all over the place. I’m a bit A.D.D. when it comes to business and what I should be working on throughout the day. I’ve actually found that Alpha Brain does not really help me get focused. However, once I do start on a project, I’ve noticed myself getting in to somewhat of a tunnel vision type mode. I seem to be able to just keep going and going once I get started on something without being distracted by the things going on around me.
I’m not the most eloquent person in the world either. Typically in conversations, I struggle a bit for the words that I’m looking for. Alpha Brain has seemed to improve this quite a bit as well. I do notice that, when in conversation, I have a much easier time verbalizing the things that I’m trying to say. This has been especially handy due to the fact that I’m doing about an interview per day for our new Beyond The Hype product.
A real interesting side effect of Alpha Brain has been the lucid dreaming… I don’t really remember having a lot of dreams throughout my life. However, since I’ve started taking Alpha Brain, I tend to have real clear dreams and I tend to actually remember them the next day. This has been pretty cool.
All and all I really like Alpha Brain and plan to continue taking it. Again, I don’t know if it’s all a placebo but, if I’m getting the results that I want, who cares…
