Since 2018 I have been looking at ways to improve cognitive performance. Until that year, I had not really considered taking anything to help me think more clearly or quickly. I always assumed my brain was working at the capacity it was going to work at. However, being an avid listener of the Joe Rogan Experience, I began hearing his ads for a nootropic called Alpha Brain by Onnit. Nootropics are substances that are used to enhance cognitive function like memory and concentration.
I heard Joe Rogan talk about his own personal experiences with Alpha Brain many times before I considered using it. He mentioned that he takes it before stand up sets, sometimes before a podcast, and even before sleep. After hearing his praise of the product and company, and being fully aware of his own stake in the company, I decided to give it a try.
For me, the decision to try Alpha Brain came at the perfect time. Actually, I should have tried it sooner, but we can’t go back in time. My first time buying the purported cognitive enhancing substance started around the late Spring of 2018. Under an enormous amount of mental and physical stress ( managing two businesses, and training for national Taekwon-do tournaments), I realized I needed to improve my mental performance where ever I could. I was tired of forgetting tasks, and feeling so damned cognitively fatigued.
Finally, I ordered my first batch of Alpha Brain and was admittedly optimistic from the beginning, but still remained slightly(ever so slightly) skeptical. The first time I tried it, I felt the effects after about 45 minutes. It is hard to remember exactly, but I felt the cognitive benefits of drinking coffee, but without the same physiological symptoms like sweating, anxiety, and rapid heart beat. Though in addition to speeding up my thinking, I felt more focused and better able to remember notes and carry out tasks I would normally forget after hanging up with customers. I was hooked.
Since I began taking Alpha Brain in 2018 I have continued ordering and taking it. My favorite time to take Alpha Brain is before I practice my Chinese, then I got the gym. I love taking it before I go to the gym because I feel more ambitious and clear headed from the start. Anyone who works out knows how much your mental state plays into a good workout, and it has repeatedly helped me push myself on days where my energy was lacking.
With all the great things about Alpha Brain, I must admit that since I have been getting more sleep, I take it less often because I don’t feel I a need the cognitive boost as often. Though, I still take it before hard workouts or on a days where my energy levels are low. Overall, I believe this is an awesome nootropic, and I highly recommend it. The only drawback for me is the price, so if your are price sensitive, try using it sparingly or look for alternatives. In fact, Mike Cernovich has nootropic called Gorilla Mind, I have not tried it, but I do trust his products, especially Gorilla Dream, which I have used many times.
So if you are in search of a product to help boost your daily cognitive performance, check out Alpha Brain. By the way, this is not an ad! I was not paid to make this, I truly hope this finds someone who is looking for a cognitive enhancing solution.
