Single Minded Focus, Hyper Alertness and Super Fast Thinking ... Let Me Show You How.
You're here reading this because you want to enhance your mind - your brain - so you can perform better in life. We're all looking for a magic bullet to make us better ... like the 'limitless pill' (have you seen the movie?)
Well, let's be clear ... you are the magic bullet ... and the only thing a pill can do is enhance what you've already got inside you.
So, let's talk about that. I want to introduce you to AlphaFocus. It's a high quality, fully dosed nootropic ... and I love it. Just as it says in the headline, if you want to get laser focus, be hyper alert, speed up your thinking and mental processing, perform better and generally get IN THE ZONE ... then this is the best nootropic I've taken.
And in fact, I formulated this. I had the opportunity to partner with a manufacturer in the US and was given total freedom to include what I wanted as part of the Kewlify range of nutritional supplements. And the only things I wanted in this formula are ingredients that work. So, now that I've told what AlphaFocus DOES for you, let's go over the details.
Meet Dr Nic Lucas ... scientific entrepreneur.

AlphaFocus is a nootropic stack for rapid cognitive enhancement.
A nootropic is a substance that produces ‘cognitive enhancement’. There are numerous prescription drugs that produce this effect, however I chose to develop a world class formula of natural ingredients that have been shown to optimise mind and mood, and we call this formula AlphaFocus.
Unlike many other nootropics, AlphaFocus isn't overloaded with stimulants, and was designed for benefits that add up over time. It's been built on four cornerstones, and is designed to optimise your focus, reaction time, memory, mood, and long-term cognitive health, without giving you headaches or leaving you in a crash on the other side of the dose.
Neural Transmission Co-Factors
We just expect the nerves in our brain to fire impulses ... but neural transmission is a very energy expensive and sophisticated process. Lot's of biochemical substrates need to be in place for the most effective transmission of nerve signals.
That's why the AlphaFocus formula is built on a foundation that supports neural transmission.
Pyroxidine-5-phosphate, methylcobalamin, and zinc are essential vitamins and nutrients for optimal cognitive potential, and long-term cognitive health. AlphaFocus delivers them in their active, and most potent form.
Years ago, we thought the brain was 'fixed' and couldn't be changed ... and yet it turns out nothing could have been further from the truth. Our brains have immense and natural ability to change (plasticity) and make new connections (synapses).
It's a famous saying now that nerves that fire together, wire together. If you want to create new patterns of thinking, behaviour, reaction, skill ... then your brain relies on synaptic plasticity.
So, it was essential to include ingredients that support, promote and strengthen the formation of new neural pathways. AlphaFocus includes a number of natural ingredients that have been shown to enhance long-term potentiation, improve synaptic plasticity, and prevent cognitive decline.
Ashwaganda is an adaptogen and can improve the formation of memories and reduce the feeling of fatigue. It helps reduce anxiety and depression, which in turn benefits social functioning, mood and performance. It reduces inflammatory markers as well as cortisol (the stress hormone).
Alpha-glycerophosphocholine (Alpha-GPC) provides a substance called choline, which is a molecule used to boost cognition. It turns into acetylcholine in your brain, which is known as the 'learning neurotransmitter'. As a bonus, it is able to reduce fatty liver buildup.
Huperzine A causes a relative increase in acetyl-choline as it stops the breakdown of this learning and cognitive neurotransmitter. Combined with Alpha-GCP (above), this leads to more of this important neurotransmitter in your brain.
Mood and Elevation
AlphaFocus includes a synergistic stack of L-theanine, phosphatidylserine, and caffeine. When phosphatidylserine is combined with caffeine, research has found improvements in mood, and reductions in the perception of fatigue.
What’s more, improvements in cognitive function and mood were found with the combination of caffeine and L-theanine, which were far greater than either caffeine or L-theanine used individually. The combination of the three is extraordinary.
L-theanine is an awesome amino acid found in green tea. It provides relaxation without sedation ... which means you get to chill out without feeling tired.
This is a perfect ingredient for a cognitive enhancer, because while you want to be alert and focussed, you don't want to be overly stimulated or stressed.
Imagine someone on an energy drink or strong stimulant versus someone super focussed, but calm and relaxed and you understand why we included L-theanine.
Phosphatidylserine has been shown to improve cognitive function, attention and memory, while reducing feelings of fatigue and stress. It also improves mental processing speed and accuracy ... perfect if you want to get the most out of your brain.
Caffeine is a well known cognitive enhancer and feel good substance. It creates alertness and focus and improves your reaction time and oxygen uptake.
When taken with L-theanine (above) it performs even better, as the two complement each other. You get the alertness from caffeine with the relaxation effect from L-theanine.
Mental Acuity + Neuroglia Blend
The Mental Acuity and Neuroglia blend takes a more active role in the support of cognitive health.
Vinpocetine improves blood flow to the brain, which increases nutrient and glucose delivery, enhancing the formula's overall effectiveness.
Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) provides much-needed mitochondrial support. It helps support anti-oxidant functions and is therefore considered to have neuro-protective effects.
The herbs in AlphaFocus also support memory formation, nerve health, and reduce fatigue.
Lion's Mane is derived from a dietary mushroom and is known to be a cognitive enhancer, also helping to reduce cognitive decline, anxiety and depression.
Bacopa promotes the communication and signalling between neurones in the brain. It has effects on the dopamine and serotonergic systems, and improves memory and cognition.
AlphaFocus is a complete, balanced nootropic that doesn’t wear off after weeks or days of use, and will enhance your mood and productivity as well as your focus and mental processing.
All this can be wrapped up by saying, if you want to get in the zone, think faster, stay focussed, form better working memory and be alert yet calm and relaxed ... and protect the neurons in your brain at the same time ... then get a decent long term supply of AlphaFocus.
