Focus and Energy Optimizer Ingredients
Focus and Energy Optimizer includes the following ingredients: Green Tea leaf extract, Rhodiola Rosea extract, Ashwagandha extract, Panax Ginseng extract, Choline (bitartrate), Gelatin capsules (gelatin, water, glycerin), magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, and magnesium silicate.
Focus and Energy Optimizer is a formula mainly based on a blend of herbal extracts, such as Green Tea Leaf, Rhodiola Rosea, Ashwagandha and Panax Ginseng.
Green tea, a plant originated in China, became widespread in the Western countries over the past two decades, due to extensive research conducted to prove its beneficial effects. The extract has been the subject of many clinical studies which concluded that it may lower the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancers and boost the metabolism. Regarding its presumed cardiovascular and cancer risk reduction effects, FDA stated that there is no credible evidence to support these claims. Common side effects include an upset stomach and constipation.
Rhodiola Rosea is a plant with adaptogenic properties, meaning it helps the body adapt and fight chemical, physical and environmental stress. The Rhodiola extract is commonly used to treat depression, increase physical performance and improve sexual functions. Its potential side effects are not known, because there is no sufficient scientific evidence.
Focus and Energy Optimizer is not scientifically researched as a formula, not is it approved by the FDA. No reviews from consumers could be identified to support the claimed benefits. The suggested dose is one to two capsules twice daily with meals or as directed by an informed healthcare professional. It is advised not to take it in the evening due to its energizing properties.

The formula, created by Dr. Daniel Amen is advertised as an effective support for optimal focus and maximum energy levels. The product is a mixture of herbal extracts proven effective in promoting better focus. The three adaptogens contained help increase the body’s resistance to stress and the strength of the immune system.
The majority of the ingredients have been the subject of clinical trials which showed good qualities in improving brain function, although research is still required for some of their health applications. However, there is no scientifically based evidence to support the whole formula’s effectiveness.
Focus and Energy Optimizer is recommended as a dietary supplement, but there are no side effects or precautions issued by the manufacturer. This is why we believe it is necessary to inform your healthcare professional before taking the treatment.
