What are nootropics and why are they the new trend

July 12, 2021

Is there really such a thing as a ‘smart pill’ that can boost your brain power? While you can’t increase your IQ by swallowing a pill, research has shown that some nutrients have a positive impact on your mental acuity. These are called nootropics or cognitive enhancers. 

As with most of us, you probably want to be more focused and alert. Whether you’re looking to outpace the competition during a distance run, advance to the next level in a video game, ace an exam or impress the boss at work, being focused and in the zone may make the difference between standing at the top of the podium or staying in the middle of the pack. 

Suntheanine, which is 100% pure L-theanine, is also a safe, clinically proven nootropic. It gives you a mental advantage by helping improve accuracy and concentration. This makes it an ideal supplement for multi-taskers. Keep it on hand whenever it’s important to be in a relaxed, calm and highly alert state of mind.  

Caffeine is another common nootropic. It helps improve thinking skills. But consuming too much caffeine can have the opposite effect. It can make concentration and focus difficult. Thankfully, there’s no need to give up caffeine entirely. 

Simply combine it with Suntheanine. Caffeine and Suntheanine work in different parts of the brain: caffeine on the ‘do the work’ beta sensor, and Suntheanine on the ‘calming’ alpha sensor. 

The caffeine/Suntheanine combination results in smooth, balanced energy and focus. Suntheanine also helps to decrease the jitters and nausea that sometimes come from consuming too much caffeine. 

Research has shown a 1:2 ratio of caffeine to Suntheanine may improve cognitive performance as well as your mood.

    Suntheanine is Taiyo’s pure form of L-theanine, produced via a patented fermentation process that mimics the natural process in green tea leaves. It promotes relaxation without causing drowsiness, positive mood, mental clarity, focus, reduces nervous tension, and helps prevent the negative side-effects of caffeine.
