Focus Mode is a nootropic supplement which promises to support and optimize your mind for better concentration, memory, mood, and focus. It’s distributed by Evlution Nutrition, a company from Sunshine, Florida. They’ve become rather popular in only a couple of years, winning an overall award in 2015 for their work. Their supplement products are sold in some physical locations, yhrough GNC. Most of the people who come to EVL will be fitness minded, but Focus Mode is supposed to work for anyone who might enjoy its potential benefits.
Focus Mode contains the following ingredients: Acetyl L-Tyrosine (750mg), Guarana Seed Extract (250mg), Alpha GPC (200mg), Choline Bitartrate (200mg), Theacrine (25 mg), Sceletium Tortuosum (25mg), Huperzine A (10mg).
Focus Mode has seven active ingredients. This includes Huperzia Serrata extract (std. min. 1% Huperzine A), Theacrine (as TeaCrine), and Alpha-Glycerylphosphorylcholine powder (Alpha-GPC). Alpha GPC is a natural choline compound found in the brain and it’s better understood than some alternatives. It delivers choline to the brain, through the blood brain barrier, and has potential in treating things like stroke and dementia.
In Europe, Alpha GPC is used in some prescription medicines for Alzheimer’s disease. It’s also found in some foods, and there’s some evidence to show that Alpha GPC may be superior to many other forms of choline. It’s also thought to be more pharmacologically active at higher doses. However, it shouldn’t be confused with general choline. Taking it with food is recommended but not necessary. Storage is the single biggest issue with Alpha GPC. It degrades quickly, especially when you take it every day. Vacuum sealed bags or freezing your Alpha GPC is recommended, especially if you won’t use the entire bottle within a month. Minimizing the amount of air you expose Alpha GPC to is essential to keeping it for any extended period of time. With Focus Mode, you shouldn’t need to worry about storage. That generally matters only when you need to store a supplement for two months or more. The only problem is that this supplement contains 100 to 200 mg of Alpha GPC per serving, and the most common dose is 300 to 600 mg a day.
- Uses popular ingredients such as Huperzine-A and contains a fair amount of choline.
- The company offers low-cost samples to people who want to try Focus Mode without buying a month’s supply.
- Highly priced for a supplement which doesn’t contain optimal amounts of certain ingredients.
- Isn’t particularly innovative or unique. There are hundreds of supplements which make similar promises about what they can do for your mind.
Some people really enjoy Focus Mode and it has a wealth of potential benefits. Like many other nootropics it promises a great cognitive boost for daily activity. Unfortunately, the formula doesn’t seem properly optimized, and the price is high considering this fact. There are a lot of nootropics on the market, many with similar benefits, and some sites offer in depth reivews. Focus Mode looks like it will be perfectly average for most consumers. That might be exactly what people want, in some cases.
