A Comprehensive Nootropic Regimen from a Credentialed Team
As a lifehacking, productivity junkie you should always be looking for products that 'small chunk' good consumption habits for you. That's exactly what truBrain does. The monthly Nootropic package they send you contains 44 different packets, each containing 4-6 capsules of different Nootropics .
There are 3 different types of packets in the truBrain package:
A.M Packets - Great for my morning productivity and creativity.
P.M Packets - The Afternoon package is actually more energizing than the morning packet, which is great for me because the afternoon is usually when I most need the energy. Several times I noticed a 'second wind' of energy 3-4 hours after consuming the P.M packages.
Turbo Packets - The first time I tried a turbo was late in the afternoon, after about 7 hours of web development work. I could definitely feel the energy 'kick in' from the Turbo capsule; I did about 45 minutes of pretty rigorous exercise, had dinner while discussing strategy with a client then went out on the town to a language exchange event where I practiced my second language for several hours. I felt quite energetic 'partying sober' till about 1:30AM and then slept quite soundly.
The primary ingredient in the product is Piracatam, the daily dosage includes 3 grams of Piracatam. I'm a lifetime fan of Piracatam, it's the original Nootropic and has been thoroughly tested for about half a century. Piracatam is also one of the safest things you can put in your body. Interestingly, Piracatam has no LD50, meaning that in rat testing there is NO upper limit lethal dosage of Piracatam. It also contains Pramiracetam, which is supposed to be like next level Piractam. I was excited about trying Pramiracetam for quite sometime but I really couldn't tell much of a difference.
It contains 8 Nootropic ingredients which sustainably increase Serotonin, Dopamine and Acetylcholine. It also contains 250 MG of Choline which is an important Nootropic cofactor to the Piracatam. Every doctor or expert I've talked to about Piracatam has said that it's a great idea to take Choline with it. Dosages of over 3-4 grams of Piracatam a day can lead to a nervous anxious 'cracked out' feeling, which I've experienced myself. Choline balances this out so you are energetic but clear headed.
Unlike some other Nootropic supplements I've tried there's not a really strong 'kick in' 20-40 minutes after taking it for the first time. The first few days of taking the product are a loading phase for getting your system accustomed to certain nutrients, after which the day to day effects of taking the product are more pronounced. So maybe not the Nootropic stack for those demanding instant results.
The month that I was on truBrain I was juggling a lot: launching another services division of my marketing firm, exercising on a consistent basis, improving my 2nd language, various stressors related to settling into my lifestyle as an American expat in South America, and on top of these things I challenged myself by doing a 'sober trip' (meaning I stayed completely sober) while simultaneously going out to socialize 3-5 times a week in downtown Medellin, Colombia which is a quintessential sexy, cosmopolitan vice city. Despite having this much going on I noticed myself managing stress exceptionally well, the entire month I had maybe two or three nights that I laid awake for hours in bed, which is great for me!
You can drink coffee while on it, without feeling cracked out which I appreciate because one of the very best coffee shops in South America is about a 5 minute walk from where I live! It's sharply packaged and I got some interesting questions while taking the supplements in public.
The Snooze test: I like to use Nootropics as part of my waking ritual. At first light or whenever my alarm clock goes off in the morning I will hit the snooze button and take my Nootropics, drink a glass of water and then go back to bed. I usually set snooze to go off in 20 minute intervals, so by the time the alarm sounds again, the Nootropics should be kicking in and waking me up. truBrain did ok with the snooze test but did not out perform coffee or three 800MG tablets of Piracatam.
Looking at the ingredients I would think this supplement would be fairly effective at inducing lucid dreams but I noticed no increased lucid dreaming during the month I took it.
truBrain follows the supplement company business model I trust the most, in that they are really transparent about the management of the company. Among the highly credentialed team members listed on the website are Dr. Christoph Michel of the University of Geneva and Dr. Andrew Hill of UCLA. truBrain is unique in the Nootropics industry in that it is backed by a high end Los Angeles venture capital firm, Start Engine (a division of Accenture, veteran venture capitalist Paul Kessler's company) of which I think adds further credibility to the product.
Speaking of venture capitalists, my understanding is that for the most successful VC's the most important criteria for picking the companies they invest in is the team behind the companies. I recommend picking the supplements you invest in the same way. So I below this video and in the Limitless Mindset Mind Power Marketplace I will link to where you can check out the credentials of the truBrain team.
truBrain is one of the more expensive supplements on the market, this makes a little more sense when you realize a single packet (of which you take two a day) contains 4-6 different capsules. When you consider the quantity of supplements you are taking it's price point makes more sense. You can save 15% if you use the coupon code 'limitless'. I don't yet have an affiliate relationship with truBrain (If this changes I will update this) but we set up a coupon code for the Limitless Mindset Community Members that will save you 15%.
The product is a little more expensive but it has a money back guarantee so if you can afford it I would encourage you to try it! Use the coupon code 'limitless' and after you try it take 2 minutes to leave an honest review of the product on the Limitless Mindset Mind Power Marketplace listing for truBrain.
DO NOT BUY
I felt sick the first two days I used TruBrain so I took a break to see if it was caused by TruBrain I felt fine over the weekend then took it again Tuesday and felt sick again. I didn't intend to buy more but I was later notified that I had been charged $65 for a monthly subscription, now I'm sure it was in the fine print somewhere that this would happen, but this is not good practice for a new company. I will not be buying or recommending TruBrain ever again. The company has not been responsive to me and even though I had to create an account to order the trial and they sent an email about my new subscription but somehow my email doesn't exist for me to log in and try to cancel this subscription.
Nice blend, a little pricey but best piracetam blend I've taken.
truBrain is Awesome
It was definitely subtle at first but after I took it for a week I started noticing my speech was a little bit faster and better, I was less tired in the mornings, and I was honed in on a task without being distracted. By the last month, I was completely in the zone most of my the day with the only con being I wasn't able to fall asleep as fast because my brain receptors were still firing at 2am. I definitely recommend it and love the fact that even when I'm off it, I don't feel any dependency nor a crash. Love it. Two thumbs up.
