For what seems like forever Focus Factor has always been a Top name in the Nootropic industry.
And it looks like it has gone to their heads as Focus Factor have labelled themselves the Number 1 supplement for memory improvement.
Is this the case or has this memory enhancer gone past its sell by date?
We find out in Our own Focus Factor Review…
What is Focus Factor?
Focus Factor is one of the first ever Nootropics.
However, Focus Factor has been able to maintain relevancy and popularity whilst other companies have fallen by the waist side.
Focus Factor is like a has been celebrity who still manages to remain popular by appearing on reality TV shows like Big Brother.
This Nootropic claims to increase Focus and improve memory.
To help you perform at your best throughout the day.
But can its unchanged formula from 15 years ago compare to today giants like Our Editor’s Choice Nitrovit?
Does it need to relinquish the torch to the new guys?
What are Focus Factors Effects?
Focus Factor is a memory and focus enhancer that helps its users perform at their very mental best.
The study found that Focus Factor improved memory, focus and concentration.
And it’s believed Focus Factor can increase word recoil.
Making this a perfect learning tool.
What are Focus Factors Ingredients?
Focus Factor has a proprietary blend and patented formula.
A proprietary blend is always a concern to us because it begs the question what are they hiding?
(A proprietary blend is where all ingredients are listed but dosage amounts are not)
High dosages of un researched ingredients?
Extremely low dosage of the ingredients that matter?
It also contains ingredients that are non-suitable for long term use.
Making this supplement more of a short-term fix than a long term to solution to memory and focus improvement.
Unlike some of our other products we have reviewed.
DMAE can be found in Focus Factors Proprietary Blend.
This supplement is a compound that is naturally produced in the body and can be consumed through foods like fatty fish species (salmon).
It is widely believed to improve memory function as well as general brain function.
This is because it believed to act as a catalyst, speeding up the production of acetylcholine in our bodies (Neurotransmitters).
With more transmitters the greater your memory will perform.
Allowing you to retain information.
DMAE is also used to treat memory loss diseases and ADD.
So, it is believed to also help you focus.
However, if taken in high dosages there are risks such as:
- skin irritation
- muscle twitching
Because the amount of DMAE is hidden behind a Proprietary blend we do not know if Focus Factor has dangerously high dosages that could cause these side effects.
Huperzine A is another Ingredient hidden behind Focus Factors proprietary blend.
This chemical is extracted form club moss and is believed to improve memory and mental function by increasing our acetylcholine.
Because of this believe it is used to treat memory loss diseases such as dementia.
Like DMAE, Huperzine A has side effects in high dosages like nausea, diarrhoea and stomach aches.
Tyrosine is an amino acid found naturally in the body but can also be consumed in foods.
It is believed to improve learning, memory, and alertness even during stressful circumstances or mentally demanding tasks.
Perfect for people in high pressure jobs.
Tyrosine does this by producing the chemical messengers in the brain associated with alertness.
Focus Factor Dosage Instructions
You should take 4 capsules per day, try create a routine such as one capsule before each meal of the day and one in the evening a few hours before you go to sleep.
However, if you’re under a large amount of stress that day you can take up to 8 capsules per day.
My experience with Focus Factor
I tried Focus Factor 15 years ago and I can remember being blown away by its effects.
This was because at that time I was highly spectacle of little pills that could make me ‘smarter’.
But I want to revisit Focus Factor and see if its formula can possibly compare to the new powerhouses.
Day 1 when I opened the bottle nostalgia came flooding back and I was excited to try Focus Factor for a second time.
But I quickly remembered I disliked having to take possible 8 capsules per day.
I started day 1 taking 8 as I had a presentation at work that day and was stressing out about it.
It felt like my whole day was just popping pills.
Which I didn’t enjoy.
8 pills to feel no increased focus.
Day 2 I took only 4 capsules and I liked this a lot better I did feel slightly more focused in the afternoon which helped me grind through work.
My week continued as such with mild focus after the second capsule which continued into the evening.
But with the good came the bad one-day id feel sick the next I would have headaches and this went on for a week.
I believe these to be side effects of Focus Factor probably from high dosages from the proprietary blend.
After week 3 I even noticed slight memory improvement.
My Focus Factor Review Verdict:
It was great to revisit Focus Factor for the 2nd time but it will be my last.
Focus Factor is an OG and I will always appreciate Focus Factor but its time it passes the flame and slips into the background.
It can just no longer keep up with the new and updated formulas.
The focus and memory improvements were only slight and there are considerably stronger products available for you.
Focus Factor potential Side Effects
- Trouble focusing
- Brain fog
- Stomach aches and head aches
Final thoughts from Our Focus Factor Review
Focus Factor is now a dinosaur and Nootropic well past its sell by date.
However it is an OG and still Americas number 1 so will most likely always have a place in the industry but the new guys are better.
