High-performance thinking is the key to getting ahead in today's fast-paced world.
From business executives, and professional athletes to students and everyone in between, people are looking to optimize their brains for improved memory and focus, faster thought processing and of course long-term brain health.
And that's why we created FOCUSED-AF
What is FOCUSED-AF?
FOCUSED-AF is a mental support formula designed to help brain function, heighten the senses, sharpen the mind and encourage focus and mental clarity. It's the strongest over the counter alternative for those seeking intense focus.
Here's How it Works.
FOCUSED-AF combines the unique characteristics of several high-grade nootropics shown to enhance memory, attention, and focus, reduce mental errors, and act as an overall neuroprotective agent. This exclusive combination offers a synergistic effect that will optimize your cognitive abilities so you can perform at your best.
Alpha GPC: a natural choline compound found in the brain and one of the most bioavailable forms of choline. Known to enhance a chemical in the brain called acetylcholine. This brain chemical is important for memory and learning functions. Alpha GPC can support cognitive health, improve memory, learning, and it also acts as a neuroprotective agent. The main mechanism of action is by increasing acetylcholine and dopamine in the brain which is known to benefit brain function significantly. (Clin Ther. 2003 Jan;25(1):178-93)
Caffeine anhydrous: Caffeine increases focus and mental stimulation. One of the main mechanisms is by increasing adrenaline. Adrenaline is a powerful stimulatory chemical, but not the only mechanism of caffeine. The main mechanism that makes caffeine unique is adenosine activity (as a receptor antagonist), which essentially helps increase alertness and reduce feelings of lethargy. There are some studies to suggest caffeine has a positive effect on memory formation. (J Alzheimers Dis. 2010;20 Suppl 1:S85-94)
Higenamine: Higenamine is a stimulant found in several plants including aconite, Asarum, lotus, and Lamarck's bedstraw, sacred bamboo, and others. Higenamine’s mechanism of action is through its beta-agonist and basically works like a stimulant. (ACTA Pharmacol Sin. 2008; 29:1187-94)
Mucuna: This is a tropical legume that’s very rich in L-Dopa—L-Dopa is the precursor to dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. It can promote healthy neurotransmission function and enhance your mood and immune system. The mechanism of action for mucuna is by increasing dopamine in the brain. This brain chemical (or neurotransmitter) is responsible for modulating a number of cognitive functions including mood, hand-eye-coordination, and others. Mucuna can be a powerful tool to improve memory and cognitive abilities. (J Young Pharm. 2011 Apr;3(2):119-24)
Sulbutiamine: This is modified from two theanine molecules. Now it’s more effective because it can penetrate the blood-brain barrier. This nootropic will help with more motivation and clean energy without feeling jittery. Sulbutiamine can also enhance memory after long-term use. The main mechanism and benefit of sulbutiamine are that it can increase thiamine (vitamin B1) levels in the brain. Specifically, it can do so 2.4 times better than taking straight thiamine itself. Thiamine is an essential nutrient that the brain needs to stave off fatigue. Research demonstrates that sulbutiamine is an effective neuroprotective agent and benefits include improved memory retention and mental performance). (J Pharmacol Sci. 2010;113(4):378-86)
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, key ingredients in FOCUSED-AF were shown to decrease reaction time and increase stimulus detection (i.e. higher percentage correct)
MEMORYDuring a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study, there was a positive correlation between working memory capacity (on the x-axis: listening span) and influence of key ingredient in FOCUSED-AF (on the y-axis)
During a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study, aningredient (sulbutiamine=S) in FOCUSED-AF at doses of 12.5 mg/kg (S 12.5) and 25 mg/kg (S 25) greatly increased memory performance (mean; S.E.)
Now you can feel the benefits of being able to hold off fatigue, optimize the way you think, increase productivity and remain calm in stressful situations, and stay FOCUSED-AF.
