Product Review: Onnit Alpha BRAIN

I recently ordered Alpha Brain from Onnit Labs, to give me a little extra boost through out my day.  Being a trainer takes a lot of focus and being in the present moment when you are with a client.  You are not only analyzing a movement pattern on the spot, but also trying to communicate and correct, keep count of reps, seconds, hold a conversation, etc.  There is a lot going on and I find myself so much in the present moment that I am literally thinking about every word that comes out of my mouth before I say it.  After a few hours you are just mentally spent and some mornings I just hope I have the energy to go into the studio and do it again.

So after some research, I came across Alpha Brain from Onnit Labs.  Alpha Brain is a Nootropic that can help 9a2ad2acwith focus, memory, mental clarity, and even has helped to improve sleep quality.

I can definitely say that my sleep has improved to where I am getting more REM sleep and dreaming more than before.  I still, however, wake up in the middle of the night, I have a two year old son, who wakes up once or twice.  When woken up before I would be groggy and need a second to gain my wits of where and who I was.  After taking Alpha Brain, I wake up feeling wide awake, but fall back asleep when my head hits the pillow again.  I’ll wake up at 4 am and check the time feeling ready to get up, but it’s 4am so I am going back to sleep.  I have been getting up an hour earlier than before to get ready for work, rather than hitting snooze and rushing out the door.

My mental clarity and focus at work has improved, along with the ability to “speak more fluidly”, meaning I am not searching for words and able to explain myself better verbally.  I also was surprised, when the most random fact would pop into my head during conversation.  (I tend to have so much on my mind with everything that I am pretty forgetful as a result).  My problem solving also seem to be quicker with more ease.

I will say this product has worked great for me and I plan on continuing to use it.  The one negative is the price.  I think it is a little more than it needs to be, however, it all depends on the value it adds to your life.  Feeling refreshed in the morning and not dragging through my mentally is something I truly enjoy and do mind paying a little extra if I  have to.
