It is very rare to encounter a pre-stacked nootropic brand that can actually stand up even against close scrutiny from experienced users of cognitive enhancing agents. This is what the brand truBrain offers: a nootropic stack that is actually just that—a stack made up of different types of cognitive enhancing agents. The blend is synergistic and the ingredients potentiate each other in order to, as what the website of the brand claims, “to access your brain’s full potential.”
While there are other supposed nootropic blends that are commercially available, truBrain ups the ante by blending together a nootropic stack that can pass for a typical stack that is used by an experienced nootropic users. This goes not only for the types of nootropic agents included in the stack, but also the doses of each of the component in the blend.
The truBrain brand was created by a Los Angeles based company that goes by the same name. This company was founded on August 2013 by Chris Thompson with UCLA neuroscientists Dr. Andrew Hill and Dr. Aida Attar being charge of the product. The website of truBrain appears to be too well-designed and visually appealing that it somehow has a similar vibe to the typical websites of online sellers of watered-down dietary supplements put up by a few individuals who are just out to make a quick buck.
As far as the product is concerned however, the nootropics comes in capsules in separate single dose in foil packets labeled AM and PM, to distinguish servings that are to be taken in the morning and in the evening. The packets contain Piracetam, ALCAR, CDP-Choline, Magnesium, L-Theanine, Tyrosine, EPA and DHA, and Pramiracetam included in another foil packet labeled as “turbo boost.”
What sets truBrain apart from other stacked nootropic brands is that the portions of the cognitive enhancing agents in truBrain are significantly much larger and are adequately within the daily recommended dosage. The truBrain stack does appear to be ideal and synergistic. Pramiracetam is hand down the grand daddy of all nootropics. It is still one of the favorites among nootropic users owing to its versatility and the ease at which the doses can be adjusted.
CDP choline is one of the best sources of choline owing to its high bioavailability compared to other choline supplement forms. Choline complements the cholinergic action of Piracetam making the nootropic effects of this blend even more effective and potent. The other components are not just included to add bulk, but are included for a specific purpose and that is to maximize the cognitive enhancing potential of the stack. This blend comes in capsules, which makes supplementation a whole lot more convenient.
As good as the truBlend stack may appear, it isn’t exactly innovative as the stack is just the typical stack that regular nootropic users have. While the doses and the ingredients may be adequate, it would be naïve to assume that it will be ideal for all users owing to varying sensitivities and reactions to the supplements. In nootropic supplementation, there is no such thing as a one-blend-fits-all or a one-dose-fits-all deal. Another legitimate issue would be the price of truBrain which is the bit on the pricey side. While it is true that using the pre-stacked formulation is far more convenient, you will be spending approximately 50 dollars more on truBrain compared to what you’ll spend if you bought and mixed your own nootropic stack from generic suppliers. This estimate even includes milligram scales, capsules, and other materials needed to create your own stack.
- The best pre-stacked nootropic supplement so far.
- It comes in capsules for a more convenient supplementation.
- It is more expensive than typical stacks created from generic noots.
- You are restricted to using only the nootropics included in the blend.
- The blend may not be the best for you.
What truBrain offers, to put it simply is convenience when supplementing with nootropics. If money is not an issue for you and if the blend happens to be exactly what works best for you, then truBrain just might be the nootropic stack for you. It will still be best if you stick with the stack of noots that your body responds best to and in the right doses that works just right for you.
