F2 Nutrition Brain Boost
F2 Nutrition Brain Boost is a Nootropic supplement advertised to bring various cognitive benefits including enhanced memory and retention, boosted focus and concentration, higher energy levels, and increased work capacity. The formula is produced by F2 Nutrition, a relatively unknown manufacturer of dietary supplements that prides to have created some of the world’s best formulas.
For example, F2 Nutrition Brain Boost is advertised as the world’s most effective cognitive enhancer. According to its producer the formula has the ability to increase, by 10 times: memory, focus, executive function, and mental clarity. This however is another unsupported by realistic evidence statement. In our opinion this is just another untested brain supplement advertised as highly effective but lacking actual proof regarding the right dosage, effects, or side-effects.
The formula includes various Nootropic substances which have indeed been the subject of clinical trials and studies, but this does not necessarily prove the potency of the entire formulation.
F2 Nutrition Brain Boost contains the following ingredients: F2 Nutrition Brain Boost contains the following ingredients: CDP-Choline, Piracetam, Tyrosine, Carnitine, Theanine, Artichoke extract, L-Phenylalanine, and Caffeine.
The supplement is based on a relatively low number of chemicals, some of which have been used for decades as cognitive enhancers.
Piracetam is one such chemical. Synthetically obtained, the compound was designed to improve communication in corpus callosum, a part of the brain that facilitates communication between the right and left brain hemispheres. The compound was and still is highly researched but its entire mechanism of action is not completely understood. Piracetam has been shown to exert a neuroprotective activity and improve Oxygen flow in the brain. Its main benefits refer to memory, learning, alertness, and mood.
Another active substance in the formula, L-Tyrosine is an amino-acid that naturally occurs in the body. It is produced from another amino-acid called Phenylalanine. Like Piracetam, L-Tyrosine was shown to cross the blood brain barrier, which is a very important condition for nutrients advertised to improve brain function. Tyrosine is actually a precursor to the most important brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. This compound is used to build-up Norepinephrine, Epinephrine, and Dopamine, neurotransmitters that play important parts in maintaining alertness, attention, and focus. Because of its role in the synthesis of these neurotransmitters Tyrosine is also believed to help reduce stress, prevent depression, and treat sexual dysfunctions, and may contribute to the maintenance of a healthy weight.
- The formula contains clinically researched compounds showed to cross the BBB
- A 4 day free sample is available. However the shipping and handling costs fall under the consumer’s responsibility (which in the US add to a total of $5.95)
- The manufacturer offers a 30-day money back guarantee
- The standard price for a 25-day supply is very high ($125.99)
- There’s no evidence that the formula is or was the subjects of a scientific trial
- The marketing campaign for this product is very aggressive (which becomes disturbing at some point) and unsupported by real evidence
The active ingredients in the formula are popular Nootropics and brain nutrients that were clinically tested for potency in areas related to cognitive health. However, there is no actual proof that F2 Nutrition Brain Boost can increase certain brain functions by 10 times. Also, the supplement is sold for a high price which may discourage a large part of potential consumers who don’t know much about the nutritional supplements market. The high cost can result from the use of top-quality, highly potent active substances, which is the case of this formula. The raw materials used to formulate F2 Nutrition Brain Boost are expensive chemicals, some used successfully for decades in treating affections of the brain. They were also proven effective (to some extent- sometimes results are mixed) in promoting overall cognitive health.
