HCF Happy, Calm & Focused is again our top amino acid brain supplement pick for the 4th year in a row. Although not a real shocker for all you overly informed consumers who keep up on all the do's and don'ts of the different fade products that are coming and going each year. HCF always seems to continue its strong consumer following year after year and we would have to be idiots to not listen to your feedback.

So here's the HCF breakdown and a few of the criteria that seem to make it popular..

    1) Proven Track Record on it's 90/10 Amino Acid Formulation – Unlike the typical high-dose “fifty-ingredients-in-one” glorified multi-vitamins or herbal "artificial stimulate or inhibit" brain supplements that come and go, HCF's 90/10 formulation (90% F&Q amino acids with a solid 10% delivery system) has proven itself over the test of time to support BBB (Blood Brain Barrier) penetration and naturally feed key "feel good" neurotransmitters and the Hypothalamus (balancing your entire Endocrine System);
    2) Years of Consumer Feedback by Professionals – Not only has our site here been bombarded by HCF feedback over the years, but the company itself has collected over 100+ documented experiences from professionals around the world as a strong record of product effectiveness;
    3) Solid USA Trial Offer and a 3-5 Day “Anywhere in the World” International Shipping Policy – Appears USA consumers would rather try a product before buying it and international consumers hate paying outrageous shipping fees and then having to wait 3-4 weeks before even getting their product.

How Does HCF Happy, Calm & Focused Work?

Well the short answer is that most brain supplements and memory nutrients work very similar to multivitamins in a "all-in-one" approach or like a drug (natural herbs) that either stimulates or inhibits your neurotransmitters into feeling something. Let's face it.. most people want instant gratification. But HCF takes more of a long view approach (although a large % report results in 24-48 hours) in terms of naturally feeding the brain the F&Q amino acids that any science book will tell you that your brain needs to have on a daily basis.

HCF's F&Q (F = DL-Phenylalanine, Q = L-Glutamine, pronounced: "D-L-FEN-L-AL-UH-NEEN" & "L-GLOO-TUH-MEEN") are two powerful, key amino acids found in whole-food proteins like fish, milk, cheese, and turkey. F&Q works by naturally supporting the increase of these "feel good" neurotransmitter levels responsible for helping you feel happy, calm, and focused every single day.

Its been said by a well respected neuro-scientist that "based on the modern day stressed out life, which most people live and their bodies face every single day; we would have to consume up to approximately 16 lbs. of fish, 2 lbs. of cheese, 2 gallons of milk, 2 lbs of turkey each and every stressed-out-filled day, just to keep our brain neurotranesmitter levels normal." Now if that is the case…it makes for a convincing argument for F&Q in our diet every day.

Ingredients

HCF works on a 90/10 formulation (90% F&Q amino acids with a solid 10% associated neuro-nutrient delivery system) and the simplicity of the formula to whole food proteins seems to contribute to its effectiveness. Many brain supplements we review will often try to load up their ingredient list with whatever exotic-sounding, "media hype" ingredient is on TV, or will somehow help them pre-sell the product even at the expense of creating an ineffective formulation. But through the years, The HCF Company's no compromise on their manufacturing principles, history and even their track record of standing behind the product has always impressed us and others in the industry. HCF's ingredients include two parts:

Part 1) Two Key Amino Acids (90% Avg of Formulation)

Amino Acid F: DL-Phenylalanine (pronounced: “D-L-FEN-L-AL-UH-NEEN”)
A) Essential (only comes from outside food) amino acid of tremendous nutritional importance.
B) Known nutritional precursor to the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), epinephrine (adrenaline) and involved in the release of PEA, phenylethylamine which can sensitize endorphin receptors to endorphins.
C) These neurotransmitters strongly support warm feelings of love, pleasure, happiness, alertness, energy, motivation, memory, attention, internal calmness, and sleep to name just a few.
Amino Acid Q: L-Glutamine (pronounced: “L-GLOO-TUH-MEEN”)
A) Conditional (only sometimes produced by the body) amino acid.
B) Major precursor for the neurotransmitter GABA, or gamma amino butyric acid.
C) Helps the mind relax and "tone down" unwanted "mind chatter" which can sharpen a person's ability to focus and concentrate with more clarity.

Part 2) Associated Neuro-Nutrients (10% Avg of Formulation)

A) Balanced HCF delivery system – Concept is that these precise levels of synergistic vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients support these two key amino acids to pass through the BBB (Blood Brain Barrier) and nutritionally feed the brain.
B) List: Vitamin A (as beta-carotene), Vitamin E (as d-alpha-tocopherol succinate), Vitamin B1 (as thiamine HCL), Vitamin B2 (as riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (as niacin & niacinamide), Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCL), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin), Biotin, Vitamin B5 (as d-calcium pantothenate), Calcium (as calcium citrate), Iron (as ferrous fumarate), Magnesium (as magnesium oxide), Zinc (as zinc citrate & zinc picolinate), Chromium (as chromium polynicotinate).

Product Features

Over the years, we’ve also learned a great deal from your consumer feedback, including; A) importance of taking HCF on an empty stomach with only water so that the formulation is not altered in the bloodstream and thus able to pass through the BBB (blood brain barrier); and B) the reported hormonal balancing benefits as "F" (DL-Phenylalanine) is the only amino acid that actually feeds your Hypothalamus which is the 'master over your entire hormonal system (Endocrine System).'

Additionally, not only has our site here been bombarded by HCF feedback, but the company itself has collected over 100+ documented experiences from professionals from around the world that is quite unique in this industry. Not quite the "product owners friends and family fake testimonials" that we see all too common when reviewing products / companies here. But when we see The HCF Company go to lengthy measures to gather feedback on their form with full tracking (attached profile images, documented, time stamped with IP address and kept on file for 3rd party verification) and then displaying the 100+ professionals its been worth our respect.

  • Official product website makes no use of outrageous brain supplement claims, phony testimonial pictures or unsubstantiated claims.
  • No compromise on manufacturing principles or track record of standing behind their products.

Conclusion

Well, choosing HCF Happy, Calm & Focused as our top brain supplement again for the 4th straight year is no accident. Nor is our nominations commission motivated, as you already know by our terms that we are affiliates of 1000s of products on our site (so please use our links) and earn a commission to support our research no matter the product you choose. Our integrity is important to us and its precisely how we evaluate brain supplements in this industry.

HCF has consistently stood out based upon 1) bottom line results – shown through consumer feedback everywhere, 2) common sense formulation approach – opening up any science book and it stating your brain's neurotransmitters and Hypothalamus need F&Q amino acids everyday is pretty self explanatory, you don't need to be neuro-scientist to figure it out; 3) easy to order – the "try it before you buy it" concept is attractive to many since its been successfully used now for years with the company and consumers.. and then add a 3-5 day “anywhere in the world” international shipping (seems the company loses money to make it affordable) and the nomination case becomes very strong for those who understand this industry. Additionally, HCF seems to have first-class customer support. All of our calls to their customer consultants went through quickly, compared to 20+ minute hold times we experienced with other product's support lines. The $5.95 that you spend on shipping gets you a professionally mailed and packaged product; it's affordable and costs about the same as a latt?-a-day habit. We tried three sample orders before writing this review and, two times, it took three business days (during the work-week) and one time it took five business days (order placed over the weekend) to get to our office. For now, we don't know of any other supplement capable of competing with HCF on all of these levels. Will that always be the case? Probably not, but their track record is getting longer each year.

HCF Happy, Calm & Focused should perfectly safe in combination with SAM-e. Please note that the formula is based on a unique combination of essential amino-acids, which rarely interact with other medication. There are some precautions in taking HCF, but the supplement should not interact with SAM-e.

Taking these capsules daily has helped me understand why being more relaxed often means being more effective, although at first this would seem like a contradiction. Being more relaxed means less stress and increased focus capacity which will eventually lead to a more creative thinking. I think this is the most important merit of the formula: to maximize one’s intellectual capacity while helping him keep stress under control.

Reply

Elmo A. Schroeder August 19, 2014 at 2:47 am

I have documented a lot about the importance of amino-acids to the human brain before deciding on buying this product. It all started when I noticed that being under a lot of stress was really affecting my professional life and my relations. At work I was unable to concentrate in doing a single task and always ending up with many unfinished things at the end of the day. When I was at home I used to get annoyed and started a fight with anyone who didn’t agree with me. So I started searching for something to improve cognitive performance and help me relax at the same time. This formula does just that, and I am happy to have found something that targets my specific problems without ingesting other unnecessary chemicals. I think this formula is really successful in helping modern man with one of the most important problems nowadays, which is stress.

I am a medical assistant which up till recently didn’t believe in the therapeutic effects of nutritional supplements. I used to think that not enough research has been made in this field, and that this unapproved medicine was all just a big fat lie. Well, a few months ago I got fired, and could not find a job, so I started feeling anxious and restless. After a month or so, I also started feeling depressed as I just could not find a job and I really needed money to support myself and my children. I went to a doctor who recommended some prescription anti-depressant, but this was not helping me at all. I was feeling tired all the time, could not finish my daily chores, and just basically sleeping a lot. I decided to end the treatment and try something more natural. I started searching for a clinically proven brain formula and I read a lot of testimonials and consumers review. This was among the most popular ones. After trying the free sample for two weeks I noticed the first improvements in my general mood, so I bought a full month’s dose. Since then my life has improved considerably. I was able to think clearly and focus on finding the job without letting the pressure and stress affect me. And now I have this job and my life is back on track thanks to this wonderful formula!

I would like the free sample of this product to try on my daughter who is 12 years old. She has attention issues and can’t do more than 1 or 2 things at a time. She is very moody, easily angered hard to live with sometimes very negative. We adopted her from foster care when she was 8 but have had her since she was 5. I have done only natural things and would like to try this and see how well it would work for her.

This has been a great support for me and my brother after our mother had passed away. It helped us get pass the moment and lowered our depression symptoms during that period. I also found it a lot easier to focus on whatever I was doing and not think so much of my mother, which in a way also helped me to overcome that horrible period. I recommend it those who need a reliable support during hard times or are simply looking for an effective brain booster.

Kevin W. Pompa July 6, 2014 at 7:52 am

I love how these capsules help me focus and stay focused whenever I’m in need of a brain booster. And each time I stop taking this supplement my performance at work is much lower. It is amazing how such a simple formula (it does contain only 2 key ingredients) can make such a difference in someone’s life! Excellent brain support!

Vicki J. Blalock June 25, 2014 at 4:45 pm

This supplement was recommended by the pharmacist when I asked for a product that would help me to improve both brain capacity and mental state. I was having a hard period at work, so I just wanted something to help me get through this period easier and not get overwhelmed by stress. Its effects were immediate and haven’t stopped taking it since.

This supplement has helped me stay focused during studying and training periods, at school and at home. I really enjoy the subtle, yet fast-acting effect of these capsules. I have not experienced any of the side effects reported by other consumers, so I have no complaints about it so far.

James C. Williams June 25, 2014 at 4:37 pm

My mother has been taking the capsules for a few months now and we have definitely noticed that she no longer has mood swings, and she is now able to relax and be more calm- which she could never do before. This has also improved her relationship with my dad, because before they used to fight a lot due to the increased irritability and agitated temper of my mom. So as long as my mom is satisfied, we are satisfied to. I think this is an excellent anti-stress and relaxing formula.

Melody June 25, 2014 at 4:18 pm

I love this supplement because it makes my day pass easily without feeling the unbearable burden of the usual stressful situations. I am able to focus on each task separately and finish my work without getting distracted by other problems. This makes me more competitive and effective in doing my job. And I owe most of the appreciation to this wonderful formula that helps me get through each day and keep my life in order!

Hello, I am interested in taking HCF, because I want improvement with focus, but from the reviews it sounds like this will relax me more-does HCF make you tired? Because I don’t want to be tired, and focused, I fear I’ll just go to sleep instead of focusing.

While I find nothing wrong with the claims or science behind this formula; DL-Phenylalanine and L Glutamine can both be purchased cheaply (much, MUCH more cheaply) from any number of reputable sources, even in small, non bulk amounts. Add a decent multivitamin and you have the same thing for a fraction of the cost.

Hi Ria,

HCF, Happy, Calm & Focused is perfectly safe to take and non-addictive. However, you can always order the free sample and test it yourself. You should also remember that the formula contains only vitamins, minerals and two important amino acids that can penetrate the brain blood barrier (BBB) in order to deliver the nutrients directly to the brain. The formula has been around for more than 10 years and it had received numerous positive reviews from sites and real customers.

As a dietary supplement for adults, the manufacturer recommends starting out with (3) capsules 30 minutes before breakfast only on an empty stomach with 8oz glass of water.

It’s truly rare that you can find a product like this. Reliable, potent and with no side effects. I have got over anxiety, sleep and focus issues and episodes of furious anger. You can try it freely and I am sure you will be pleased by it.

I have a very stressful job and also a hard time at home… I am the only support for my family and I have to cope with difficult situations every single day. So, this product really helps me to handle stress more effectively.

This is a very good product. I used it for a year and I feel better in every possible way. I find it a lot easier to deal with stressful situations and no longer rage when things don’t go my way. Try it, you will like it.

Since I’ve been on Happy, Calm & Focused, I feel I have more energy and my husband tells me I am less irritable than I’ve been for the last 6-7 months, when I think menopause started to kick in. I’ll keep ordering it!

Can you take this one and also take a “one-a-day” multivitamin together? HCF for your brain and “one-a-day” for the rest of your body?

If this product has been out for 10 years why do customers comments only go to 2011 ?

Hi Barb Moore,

Brainreference was released in 2011. It is not possible to have comments dating earlier than that :)

They have mentioned it is free trail, but when i fillup details they are asking card number I thought it is only for shipping payment but they are also asking for 1month pack or partner pack , family pack what happen to free trail..

Reply

breditor March 5, 2013 at 2:33 am

Hi Hary,

Asking for card number is a standard procedure and is required for shipping payment. As for subscription, you can choose to cancel it at any given time. You will still receive the free sample and in case you are not fully satisfied with the product, then simply cancel the monthly subscription.

I bought this product for my husband who’s been out of job for three months now and has serious problems with his sleep. He did not want to take any rx drugs so I started looking into herbal solutions. He’s been taking this supplement for about two weeks now and says that his brain is not racing like it used to. He’s now able to sleep without getting up several times in one night.

I think it’s a matter of personal preferences. The way their subscription plan is build convinced me to try and keep use it. It did wonders for me and for my husband.

Deb October 16, 2012 at 4:23 am

I was ready to order my “free month trial” until I realized it was for a monthly program UNTIL you cancel after receiving 14 days, + 1 week of allowed shipping (21 day total) of free HCF. Two weeks was a decent offering for $9.95, but not an automatic program thereafter. If the product is as good as people are stating why must I opting for monthly payments. Let me decide. Why give me the hassle of canceling if I feel differently. Too bad, I would have liked to try it.

Velma G. October 18, 2012 at 4:09 am

Almost all the top supplements offer a monthly program, but HCF is the only one offering a trial. Also notice its a “free month trial” which you are trying out their monthly program. If you want to try the product itself for free, nobody does that as far as I know. Plus, supplements are designed to be taken regularly so it makes sense to automatically sign up for a monthly program.

I can’t find specific information on whether kids can take this or not. I just see adult dosage instructions. Can a 10 year old take it?

BR Publishing September 11, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Hi Michele,

We have seen many children successfully take the HCF supplement without any issues. In some cases, reducing the dose is necessary for a child so that they can build up and become acclimated to the changes in the brain and body that the supplement’s nutrients will introduce.

Reply

BR Publishing December 28, 2011 at 3:16 am

Some people do experience minor headaches when taking a supplement because the body is acclimating to the changes the supplement provides.

In most cases you don’t need to worry about this as it fades away quickly as you mentioned. However, if it becomes excessive or lasts for longer than a few days it may help to work up to the recommended dosage.

Bradley December 29, 2011 at 10:20 pm

that is kind of imnportant information dont you think it should be part of the review if this is a common side effect???

Reply

BR Publishing December 30, 2011 at 9:25 pm

This is not a common side effect specific to HCF Happy, Calm & Focused, some people do experience this with any supplements. It is a natural reaction by the body when nutritional changes occur.

Some people may experience stomach pains or bring light-headed among other things but they are not common or specific to this product.

If you’re looking for a mircale pill that eases all your trobuels, this isn’t it. But if you’re realistic and want something that can make you feel better, like relaxed and focused, then this is what you want.

A lot of people eating habits depend on there moods. When they are sad or anxious for example people tend to turn to food to make them feel better, so I assume that if you are happy and calm you are less likely to resort to the bag of chips and soda or chocolate.

I first tried this product about 6 months ago and still swear by it. I suffered from serious sleep troubles and it helped me with it. It got so bad for me that I couldn’t fall asleep without some OTC medicine of some sort. I really got concerned when i felt chained to these drugs. The funny thing is, my husband got the supplement for me to help calm me down, it was never for my sleep trouble. But it definitely worked out and I suggest everyone try it and see how it improves your life.
