The nootropic industry is booming. A soon to be USD 6,059.4 industry threatens the ranks of a number of pharmaceutical medications, including one of the largest and most notable, Adderall. Skepticism regarding brain supplements is a hazy area with many feeling that pharma is seeding anti-nootropic proganda as a way to derail readily available nootropics such as NooCube. My NooCube review was set up due to my having tried (and loved) this brain supplement. Needless to say, expect today’s NooCube review to go darn well.
I also think there are a lot of fraudulent nootropics in existence due to less stringent regulations. Of course, those same less stringent regulations are the same lack of constraints which has allowed NooCube to thrive.
The fact is, nootropic supplements are now everywhere. If you have a Facebook account, you’ve likely seen the advertisements. Because who doesn’t want additional focus and concentration, alongside an improved memory? The advertising in such an area doesn’t need to look for a micro-demographic as a way to push marketing, because most everyone wants to improve their brain power.
The science is super clear when it comes to natural ingredients and increased brain power (it’s fact). There are lots of amino acids and herbs that enhance focus, concentration and memory. Even using them on individual levels works wonders. However, pack them into a concentrated formula and the power of science reveals itself in the most candid (and fruitful) of ways. That’s what nootropics should do. That’s what NooCube does. That’s not what pharma medications do. And that’s certainly not what every purported brain supplement does. And that’s why we review them.
What Should NooTropic Do?
Claims by NooCube’s manufacturer fit a familiar narrative: NooCube should help improve your memory, your focus, and your concentration. This, in turn, should positively effect your productivity.
I’m a writer. I’m not just a writer for a supplement review site. One thing I’ve learned over the years is that increased focus equates to increased productivity. And hopefully, you can relate an increase in productivity to an overall lifestyle improvement (more money, more time, better relationships).
The inability to focus is a modern plague. NooCube claims to help rectify that. And that’s what my NooCube review seeks to determine: Will NooCube help improve focus, concentration and memory? This is a big brand supplement, so expectations are high.
The primary and first of NooCube ingredients is Alpha GPC. While the science here might be boring, it is essential to helping NooCube meet the demand of its claimed benefits.
So let’s break this down: Alpha GPC increases a neurotransmitter called Acetylcholine. Acetylcholine. The relationship between Acetylcholine and memory is so defined that it has been shown in studies to improve the brain function of alzheimer’s patients (1). The study showed that Acetylcholine counters the symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
But wait, why have you never heard of this? I can’t state this as a fact, but what I can suggest is considering what would happen to pharma medications of an over the counter brain supplement improved a major disease. Above, I linked to a real study. You can read it yourself.
Another major NooCube ingredient is Huperzine A. Now that we understand Acetylcholine, understanding the benefit of the brain supplement ingredient, Huperzine A, shouldn’t be too laborious. There is an enzyme in your brain called Acetylcholinesterase; and its bad news fro Acetylcholine. In fact, it breaks Acetylcholine down. Huperzine A prevents this process from happening. Think of Huperzine A as brain security making sure that your vital components needed for healthy memory and focus are left in tact.
The NooCube ingredient Bacopa acts as an EMT system for the brain. Bacopa repairs neurons which have been damaged for various reasons. Poor neuron health is bad for concentration. Here’s a study showing Bacopa repairing damage from what’s known as oxidative stress.
NOTE: Oxidative stress can also be repaired by phenols, as well as vitamins E, C, A. That means you should pay attention to those nutrients as well for improved brain health, but it also shows you the gravity of importance for healthy supplies of Bacopa.
I’m a big L-Theanine fan. Before nootropics became as readily available as they are now, I took L-Theanine daily. I personally think that L-Theanine is an essential brain supplement ingredient. That said, NooCube doesn’t let us down.
L-Theanine has been shown to improve focus and concentration. L-Theanine reviews are insanely good. L-Theanine also works to relieve anxiety. I’ve had nothing but success taking it individually and now getting it as part of NooCube ingredients has made it feel even more potent. Additionally, L-Theanine is synergistic with caffeine and helps to eliminate the nervous, jittery feelings that caffeine can cause.
Many people take L-Tyrosine as a way to reduce anxiety and improve sleep. And this is likely the reasoning behind why NooCube includes it.
So wait, couldn’t you just take these all alone? Yes, you could, and the benefit would be more control over ingredient amounts. The downside is the cost will be a lot more (not only does buying individually elevate merchandise pricing, but shipping also gets inflated). The other downside is the consistency of ordering. Most people complain they commonly run out of ingredients and then end up waiting on shipping. In combination, these ingredients work in a fluid manner. It almost feels as if they were meant to be taken in combination. But if you feel confident you can pull it off, I wouldn’t hesistate in doing so.
NooCube is filled with good. In the end, I’ve tried it and it works. The ingredients inside of NooCube are scientifically proven to work (I linked to studies, I feel it is very important to find supporting medical documentation).
Like many nootropics, you may feel increased energy. For some, this is uncomfortable.
The Final Say
My NooCube review, it turns out, showcases a big nootropic brand that lives up to a big brand’s expectations. It is purchased for a reasonable price (though it isn’t the cheapest and you shouldn’t expect it to be). Like anything, results per person can vary. But most NooCube reviews are glowing, so it would appear, albeit anecdotally, that it works for most people. You might see if they offer a free sample, although, they do have a legit return policy.
