These days it seems like the only thing people can ever talk about are life hacks. Whether it’s the secret to productivity, or the newest fad diet, it seems like everyone on the internet is promising shortcuts. Too often we overlook the importance of actually taking the time and effort to consume the stuff that our bodies need, you know; vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids.

Here’s a crazy thought: what if we focused less on influencer driven marketing campaigns, and more on doing what scientists and doctors keep telling us to do?

If you’re looking for some magical snake oil to turn you into the guy from Limitless, this post isn’t for you. If you want to heighten cognitive function through a healthy blend of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, you may want to consider supplementing your daily diet with TruBrain.

What’s TruBrain?

TruBrain is like coffee, but better. It’s a daily nutritional supplement, suited to the needs of the modern workforce. Instead of getting you jacked up on absurd amounts of caffeine, like coffee and hype-brand energy drinks, TruBrain utilizes a balanced blend of natural ingredients to increase mental performance, without making you feel anxious and jittery.

TruBrain was designed by UCLA graduates Dr. Andrew Hill and Dr. Aida Attar, who have spent their lives studying the brainwaves of high achievers, and identifying the chemicals which best accelerate cognitive performance. Hill and Attar recognized the inherent flaws of a society who uses daily stimulants just to function. So they set out to create a superior morning beverage.

TruBrain’s unique blend of ingredients improves brain plasticity, by optimizing the flow of oxygen and glucose to your body’s control center. It combines active nootropics like L-Theanine, Uridine, Centrophenoxine, Noopept, with vital nutrients like Magnesium and Citicoline. Though their biochemical nomenclature may sound intimidating, these ingredients occur naturally in superfoods like asparagus, avocado, cane sugar, and green tea leaves.

How does it work?

TruBrain uses active nootropics and essential nutrients to supercharge cognitive function. Nootropics are an exciting new breed of dietary supplement, that are taking the world by storm. Active nootropics increase brain cell metabolism, and improve overall brain plasticity. Nootropics also heighten communication between neurons, by modulating your brain’s acetylcholine receptors.

In addition to the use of powerful nootropics, TruBrain includes a number of essential minerals and amino acids that are essential to the normal function of your brain, but deficient in most people’s diets. Magnesium and tyrosine further improve neurotransmission, while Carnitine helps neurons break down fatty acids, and Citicoline acts as a precursor to acetylcholine.

Is it safe?

TruBrain is 100% safe for use as directed. In fact, it actually has less toxicity than table salt or vitamin C.

How does it taste?

Tart and slightly fruity.

At Vanish, we love TruBrain’s rich, fruity taste almost as much as we love the heightened alertness we get from it’s morning use. TruBrain has become a staple for our office, and we can’t wait to see what they create next!
