A Comprehensive Review of Blonyx HMB Creatine, HMB Sport, Beta Alanine, and Egg White Protein Isolate

The Scoop on Blonyx HMB Creatine, Beta Alanine, HMB Sport, and Egg White Protein Isolate by Blonyx Biosciences


Blonyx Biosciences is one of the more refreshing brands in today’s supplement industry. Created for the needs of high-level CrossFit competitors, Blonyx is a relatively small company compared to the industry giants that extend their product lines through the likes of your local GNC store and beyond.

They produce only four (4) products on their current roster, including Blonyx HMB Creatine, Beta AlanineHMB Sport, and Egg White potein Isolate. but that’s because they selectively market products that actually work!

Many of today’s supplement companies focus much of their resources on coming up with witty product names or a brilliant marketing scheme to get you to buy their products, and this is allowed to happen because of the lack of regulation in the supplement industry in its current state.

Blonyx doesn’t have boast ridiculous names for their products or outrageous claims about what their products can do. They use pharmaceutical grade, often Paleo-friendly ingredients, with no fillers or proprietary blends. Each ingredient used in their products is clearly listed (along with dosage) and has been backed by 10 or more published research studies to show that they are safe and that they do work. There are no tricks or deception tactics from Blonyx BioSciences, just products that produce results.


Here is a closer look at the products offered by Blonyx Biosciences:

 

Blonyx HMB+CrHMB + Creatine by Blonyx Biosciences: As the most popular product in the Blonyx BioSciences lineup, HMB plus Creatine contains the same HMB 1.5g of HMB (per scoop) that is found in HMB Sport combined with 2.5g of creatine. Adding in creatine (easily the most tested and proven dietary supplement) it allows your muscles to work harder with increased stamina by improving the muscles ATP stores. By consuming 1 scoop pre–workout, and one scoop of HMB plus Creatine post-workout you will get your recommended dose of both HMB (3g) and creatine (5g) each day.

Blonyx HMB SportHMB Sport by Blonyx Biosciences: Paleo friendly supplement that contains 3g of HMB, aka Beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (or B-Hydroxy B-Methylbutyrate) per serving in capsule form. HMB Sport is designed to increase muscle mass, strength, and reduce muscle soreness. Choose HMB Sport if you are looking for an HMB supplement without the added creatine.


Blonyx Beta AlanineBeta-Alanine by Blonyx Biosciences: Beta-Alanine is a metabolite of the amino acid Alanine. Beta-Alanine is known to increase Carnosine production in the muscles, allowing you greater muscular endurance to get more out of each workout. The more you can get from each workout, the better end result you will have.

Blonyx Egg White Protein IsolateEgg White Protein Isolate by Blonyx Biosciences: First released in July of 2019, Blonyx was able to feature a new technology in the formation of their Egg White Protein Isolate so it is unlike any other egg white protein on the market!   Through a unique filtration process Blonyx was able to create a virtually tasteless protein powder, where they added only natural ingredients like organic cane sugar, cocoa, sea salt to the egg white protein isolate to make it taste like chocolate milk (and it does), but the product itself has no lactose so it’s perfect for even the most sensitive stomach! Each serving contains 20g of high-quality protein from egg whites, and 11g of organic cane sugar. For those that are active, these carbohydrates are vital for muscle fuel and recovery.  

 

The Blonyx Biosciences brand features high-level CrossFit Games competitors, as well as weightlifting coaches, on their athlete roster because they need to know exactly what they are putting in their bodies and understand the science behind what they are talking. Blonyx Biosciences is a premium supplement brand designed for elite (or aspiring elite) level athletes.

Blonyx Blog Picture

If you are a peak competitor in strength sports like CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting, or strongman, you will get more out of your training with the entire line up of products. Endurance focused sports such as gymnastics, track athletes, swimmers and cyclists can also benefit.

Blonyx Biosciences has truly positioned itself as premium supplement brand with high quality ingredients, integrity and proof that the products work backed by scientific study! The bar they have set is truly pleasing to diehard fans of the supplement industry, like myself, where often times we can’t tell the real from the fake. Blonyx Biosciences is the real deal!

RIVALUS Supplements Review

RIVALUS Supplements Review - If you are a serious athlete in any sport - You should know RIVALUS!




I first came across RIVALUS and Powder Burn 2.0 at the 2015 Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, OH. This was my first trip to the Mecca of sports festivals so I didn't really know what to expect.

I simply knew that I wanted to get as many photo opportunities as I could, find out what was coming new to the market and hopefully make some connections with some new brands for Just Max Fitness Nutrition.

By meeting the wonderful folks from RIVALUS I was able to accomplish two of those goals in one conversation (... I would have asked them for pictures too, but then they might have thought that was a little over the top LOL).




After doing my research, I've found that RIVALUS was acquired by the former owners of Optimum Nutrition, Mike and Tony Costello who left the company in 2008 because apparently they weren't fond of direction it was heading in.

So with RIVALUS in-tow they created Nutrivo, LLC - which also runs Rule 1 Proteins brand (for a comparison of whey proteins R1 Protein by Rule 1 vs Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard, click here).

I like RIVALUS because they are certified pro-athlete and WADA compliant. As a competitive Paralympic athlete in training, I need products that I know will pass testing at my larger National and International competitions. How much of a shame would it be to get disqualified from competing or banned from the sport (think the UFC and USADA Violations) because of the ingredients in a protein supplement?

Obviously, protein is not on a banned substance list regardless of the particular type that it's composed of, but it could be manufactured in the same facility as other products that are on the banned substance list and lead to what is known as a contaminated supplement.

All RIVALUS products are manufactured right here in the USA in 130,000 sq ft. state of the art facility in Aurora, Illinois.

With a slogan such as - "We're Pro Athlete" - you know that they have their customer's best interest in mind.

If you compete with any governing bodies that drug test and need to make sure you're products are banned substance free then you need RIVALUS on your team (and in your gym bag).

If it was already obvious up to this point, I absolutely love this company, brand, and  the people that represent the brand and I can't wait to grow with them.

The only negative thing I can say about this company is actually an assumption: being headquartered down in Illinois, they are probably Chicago Bears fans ... and being from Green Bay, I'm sure you can guess who my favorite team is - Go Pack Go! So, I suppose I can set aside my football allegiance for a good quality supplement.

Check out the current RIVALUS products that we have in stock like Powder Burn 2.0, a pre-workout with 14 active ingredients and zero band substances!. 

Keep an eye out for their full product line, including the popular protein items such as Promasil Premium Protein - think BSN SYNTHA-6 but better, MPower, Clean Gainer, and other creatine, weight loss, and hormone support products.

Finding Value in Expired – Clearance Supplements

Expired Supplements

|Why do Supplements Have an Expiration Date|  |How Long After Can I use Expires Supplements?|
|How to Store Your Supplements |

 

Some of the best values in sports nutrition and fitness supplements are found in the Clearance Sections either online or at your local store. Some clearance items are because of being over stocked, but most clearance supplements come from items that are “short dated” - items that are about to expire or may be recently be expired.

 Below is my blog on expired supplements, whether they are safe, and their effectiveness. I even outline how long you can take a supplement passed its sell by date on some of the more popular types of supplements in the industry today.

 

Are Expired Supplements Safe to Take?

I get this question a lot. The new year has passed, and you’ve probably gotten into some type of healthier nutrition and exercise regimen and maybe you’ve found last year’s supplements in the back of cupboard now expired and you are wondering if they are still safe to take. Who wants to waste all that money they spent on supplements last year, (or even the year before)? Is it necessary to throw all these out and start over?  Although I would like the uptick in sales, I’m also a good guy so the short answer is, No…

For the most part expired supplements are safe to take and won’t harm you. It is hard to imagine that if you have a tub of protein sitting on your cupboard and its OK consume on 2/28, but when the calendar flips to 3/1 you can no longer take it and you must throw it in the trash and buy a new, larger tub from JustMaxFitnessNutrition.com.

In the process of moving my inventory from my spare bedroom to the “store” in the Garage of Gainz, and I am finding hundreds of dollars of expired or near expired fitness and sports nutrition supplements. I have been taking expired supplements for years and nothing bad has ever happened to me. I’ve never gotten sick or even had stomach discomfort, (my cerebral palsy is from birth, it certainly has nothing to do with taking expired supplements) so I thought I’d some actual research and get some answers for those looking for them, and see if I can remain in good conscious while selling some of my near-expired and expire supplements at discounted rates. As a smaller shop some of my products don’t turn as well as others (and even I can’t take this large of volume on expired supplements, so often you can find great supplement deals on anything from protein, pre-workout powders and even some of the top weight loss supplements in the JstMaxFitnessNutrition.com Clearance Section.

 

 

Why do Fitness and Sports Nutrition or Fitness Supplements have an Expiration Date?

It turns out that the FDA doesn’t require manufactures to put expiration on their supplements, however many do so as a quality control mechanism.  The expiration date is the last date the manufacture can guarantee the potency of the ingredients that are listed on the label.

The compounds in any fitness and sports nutrition supplement start to break down the moment the they are manufactured, and the potency listed on the label is the potency guaranteed at the time of expiration.  (This also means that if you get your hands on some supplement that was just made by a manufacturer you could be getting a slightly stronger potency then what is listed on the label). 

 

An Expired Supplement can Cause Changes in Flavor

The one downfall in expired supplements could be changes in flavor. Just like active ingredients of supplements breakdown overtime, so too will the flavor components of a supplement (and the flavor components usually break down faster). From my experience the flavor component doesn’t drastically change, but it certainly doesn’t taste the same as when you open a fresh supplement.

If you’re taking a supplement that is long past the expiration and you can’t stand the taste, then it means it is time to throw it out and get some fresh stuff. If you don’t throw it out, it will just sit back on the counter and be another two years past the expiration date the next time you try it, just toss it out!

 

So How Long Can I take an Expired Supplement?

 

Expired Protein Powder

Expired protein is probably the most common of all supplements in the industry, the bigger container you buy the better deal you get per pound. From my personal experience when I buy protein powder, I usually get sick of the same flavor every day, I will open up to three different tubs and one ends up in the back of my supplement cupboard, and before I know it it’s expired. I recently found a tub Rivalus Native 100 that expired in November and I only have 6 scoops gone out of it. I will certainly use it until it is gone, I’ll just add a little more than a full scoop to make sure I’m getting all my protein needs.

Protein powder is a dry product so if it is stored properly there is little chance that bacteria will grow or cause it to spoil. Protein can be good for up to a year passed it sell by date. Always do a small smell taste with a spoonful or two of protein in water to ensure nothing smells bad or taste rancid before mixing a large smoothie or meal replacement. If you pass that test, then you are good to go!

 

 

Expired Protein Bars

Expired protein bars and other food type products are one of two supplement types that I would exercise caution regarding consuming them. Many of the protein bars on the market are loaded with synthetic ingredients and preservatives in order to increase shelf-life, there has been a shift in the industry to provide real food and whole food bars and snacks. These type of protein bars (RX Bar and Glukos Energy Bars) should be consumed within 3-6 months after the expiration date because of the whole food components that can spoil and rot over time.

If you have something hiding in your cupboard that you’ve found and they are well passed the expiration date (more than the 3-6 months), I would recommend tossing these. Eating spoiled food can cause more trouble than it is worth.

 

 

Expired Pre-Workout

You can treat any expired pre-workout much like an expired protein powder. Pre-workouts can also be good for a at least a year passed the expiration date. Your pre-workout is still good even if it is clumpy. Pre-workouts often get clumpy even before the expiration date because the ingredients in them attract moisture from the air when kept room temperature. Magnum Nutriceuticals Pre-Fo is a great example of this. They put a sticker on the container advising to keep it in the freezer after opening to avoid clumping.

The biggest thing to watch for with expired pre-workout is discoloration. If parts of the pre-workout are different colors from the rest of it, ie. your blue raspberry pre-workout (which is usually a blue powder) also has brown spots in it - your pre-workout is going bad and it’s time to order a new tub from JMFN.

 

Expired Creatine

I wrote a rather extensive blog on creatine and all its wonders already but forgot to add a section on expired creatine. So here it is...  Creatine probably lasts the longest of all expired supplements. Like all supplements it will certainly lose some of its potency but can still be good for up two years beyond the expiration date.

If you are trying to ensure that you are getting your recommended number of grams per day (most recommended serving sizes are 5 grams) its potency, simply take a scoop and a half or even two scoops to get the same effect as one scoop. You may get more than your body needs by using this strategy and excrete it out, but it beats the alternative of throwing it in the trash.

Like a pre-workout, creatine can clump up because of moisture as well, and like pre-workout this doesn’t mean its bad either, it is just attracting moisture from the air.

 

Expired Fat Burners

Fat Burners are the most popular supplements in the industry today and have been for years.  So, you’ll be happy to know that expired fat burners can be taken long after the expiration date like the other popular supplement listed above.  The one guideline I wouldn’t follow is that of taking extra to increase potency.  Many of the top fat burners contain stimulants and those should never be taken beyond the recommended dose. This can cause harm and even make you sick (unrelated to the fact they are expired). If you’re taking an expired fat burner it is best to stick with the recommended dose as they may take a considerable amount of time to lose their potency (remember, the expiration date is the last guaranteed date of full-potency.  And they aren’t going to lose half potency in 24 hours. As you get further from the expiration date your fat burner won’t be as effective, but it sure beats the alternative of throwing it in the garbage.

 

 

Expired Fish Oils and Probiotics

Fish oils and probiotics are the second category of fitness supplements that I would use with caution when passed the expiration date. Fish Oils are a fat and can oxidize when exposed to light which can make them rancid. Fish Oils are also a liquid (even inside the capsule) and supplements in liquid form do degrade faster than that of powdered supplements like protein or creatine.

 

Tips for Storing Your Supplements

There are ways you can store your fish oils and probiotics (as well as your other supplements) to extend their freshness and shelf-life. Almost all supplement labels have the direction to “store in a cool, dry place” and this is the easiest way you can improve the shelf-life on any supplement.

Additionally, you can store your liquid supplements, Fish oils, and probiotics in your refrigerator to help maintain freshness. Store any pre-workouts (including the new pump products in your freezer after opening if the “clumping” bothers you, but it isn’t essential.

We at Just Max Fitness Nutrition also have one do not do that a surprising number of people don’t know about (or don’t care) but it can increase the self-life of that precious jug of protein.

Do not store your protein on top of the refrigerator. Your refrigerator generates a lot of heat, and heat rises. This can create humidity and your protein has the potential to absorbing some of that moisture that will make it to degrade faster then normal. So, do not store your protein on top of your fridge!

 

Expired Doesn’t Mean Bad

In conclusion, expired does not necessarily mean “gone bad.” Whether or not you can take an expired product really depends on the product itself. As outlined above the expiration (sometimes sell by date) doesn’t indicate the true shelf-life of a product. Some supplements like; protein, creatine, and pre-workout powders can be used well passed their expiration dates (some even a year past!). But others like protein bars, other food-like supplements (RX Bar and Glukos Energy Bars) should be used within 3-6 months after the expiration date because of the whole food components that can spoil or rot over time, as mentioned in the protein bars header. (I have eaten RX Bars a full two-months past the expiration date.  They’re just a little harder.)

Of the supplements that I researched, Fish Oils and probiotics are the only supplements that should be tossed after reaching the expiration dates. This is because of the oxidation of the fats and the live bacteria components respectively.

If you’re not sure on whether a supplement past its expiration date is still good, it is always better to error on the side of safety and toss it.  Getting sick in any capacity will usually keep you out of the gym and no one wants that!

What are Nootropics? The "Smart Drug" Supplements Explained

Nootropics

© Can Stock Photo Inc. /Spectral

 

 

Understanding Nootropics

 

Nootropics are a class of “smart drugs” (supplements designed to increase cognitive brain function) are gaining traction in the supplement industry. Although they have been around for decades, they have only been made available to the public in the last few years.

Nootropics have gained popularity over recent years because of recent media coverage glorifying the use of nootropics. In 2011 The Movie Limitless was released by Relativity Media which depicts A-list movie star Bradley Cooper as a washed up writer who takes a type of Nootropic to become not only a fantastic writer, but also the best version of himself that he possibly can. The movie was so successful, and the idea of nootropics is so fascinating that CBS created a spin-off show in 2015, and nootropics have only become more popular since then.

If you’ve been looking for increased energy, mental clarity and more focus (an overall increase in brain power) to help you take life to the MAX, keep reading to see if Nootropics might be right for you.

 

How do Nootropics Work

Unfortunately, there is not one simple answer on how nootropics work. There are many different types of nootropic compounds (see list of effective Nootropics below), and they all work with the brain’s neurotransmitters in different ways. (The brain is still the most complicated organ to understand within the human body).

Obviously, the movie example of Limitless and what they did for Eddie Mora (Bradley Cooper’s Character) is unrealistic and made for entertainment, but nootropics do work. Although the science behind nootropics is very complicated and still has much to be figured out. With today’s technology it is relatively easy to measure and see an increase in brain function, multiple studies on a variety of the most effective nootropic compounds have proven their effectiveness.

 

List of Effective Nootropics

In the fitness and sports nutrition industry you can find some single component nootropics, but often you will find supplements that are a nootropic stack (multiple compounds combined to enhance the benefits of the overall supplement. Below is a list of effective nootropics you want to ensure that your nootropic supplement of choice has in it. (Although all in one supplement probably isn’t necessary).

 

Effective Nootropics Include:

5-HTP – Made in the body from L-Tryptophan and converts into Serotonin. Serotonin promotes healthy sleep patterns, (quality sleep is one of the most under-rated components of a healthy lifestyle) and is the most important neurotransmitters that regulate mood.

Adrafinil Works very similar to Modafinil (see below) because it converts to Modafinil in the liver. Like Modafinil it is used to increase mental energy (alertness), focus, attention span, and concentration. Unlike Modafinil, Adrafinil is legal in almost all places without prescription.

Alpha-GPC – Comes from a compound found in the brain. Alpha-GPC has already been used to understand Alzheimer's disease and other dementias and used as treatment to slow the progression of them.

Bacopa Monnieri –An herb that is native to parts of southern and Eastern India, Australia, Europe, Africa, Asia, and North and South America. Bacopa Monnieri reduces anxiety and can help improve memory by promoting neuron communication.

Choline Choline is a basic nootropic taken to help improve cognitive function and overall mood. Choline is known to some as the “feel good” nootropic because it also helps relieve headaches.

Huperzine A An herbal nootropic that is known to help with memory retention and mental performance. Huperzine A is a great nootropic for beginners to start with as it is easy to tolerate in small doses.

L-Theanine –An amino acid that is not commonly found in the American diet and is structurally like the neurotransmitters GABA and Glutamate.  L-Theanine is featured in Nootropic Supplements because of its relaxing properties.

Modafinil A nootropic that should be used with caution because of its powerful nature. Modafinil was first created to treat sleep disorders like narcolepsy and sleep apnea. Modafinil increases mental energy (alertness), focus, attention span, and concentration. Modafinil is available online in the US without a prescription, but a prescription is required in other parts of the world. Modafinil should always be used with caution.

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine  An amino acid that is mainly used to synthesize protein. Along with synthesizing protein, N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine helps to increase the bioavailability of Tyrosine, which is a precursor to Dopamine (the feel-good hormone)

Noopept Often considered the strongest nootropic available (and the first Nootropic I was exposed to in Blackstone Labs Resurgence BCAA product), mainly helps boost memory and the ability to retain information. Noopept has also been shown to improve reflexes and improve mood.

Organic Lion's Mane Extract – Comes from a mushroom (Hericium erinaceus) and has a wide range of health benefits including brain boosting power.

Pramiracetam Another extremely powerful nootropic that is believed to improve cognitive function, boost memory, and promotes the ability to retain information. Pramiracetam differs from other nootropics by not effecting one’s mood.

Pyritinol Used by many as the “hangover pill” because it reduces inflammation in the cerebrum. Pyritinol is made of two Vitamin B6 molecules bound together by two sulfur atoms. Pyritinol has also been used as a compound to treat Alzheimer’s disease.

Vinpocetine A synthetic alkaloid derived from the periwinkle plant and has been found to help improve memory by increasing blood flow to the brain. Most importantly, Vinpocetine can help reduce neural inflammation and prevent stressor and toxins from causing amnesia.

Note:  When I research individual components of supplements, I like to refer to Examine.com. They provide accurate, unbiased information and do not support specific supplements or brands. The information is based on research, and only research. If you want to learn more about the ingredients inside the supplements you take, be sure to check out Examine.com.

 

Are Nootropics Safe?

Nootropics are extremely safe and non-toxic to the human brain, but as with any type of supplement there is still some potential of side effects with nootropics use.

 

Nootropics Side Effects

The most common side effects associated with Nootropics at this time are headaches, intestinal and system issues. Sometimes headaches occur when using nootropics because the brain is working harder and demanding more Acetylcholine than your body can produce. Choline acts as a precursor to Acetylcholine and safety increases your body’s supply to counteract the headaches.

An excessive dose of nootropics in the body may be a threat (something that the body is not used to), so your body will want to expel this from it system, causing the intestinal issues. This can lead to diarrhea, nausea, or simply stomach discomfort. The easiest way to eliminate these side effects is to adjust to a more comfortable dose of your desired nootropic.

Insomnia and/or fatigue can also be unintended consequences of taking nootropics supplements, as your brain is working harder and on overdrive.

 

Natural Nootropics in Food

Not quite ready to give nootropic supplements a try? You can find nootropics in everyday foods that you eat and help give your brain a boost!

To get more Nootropics in your every day diet, increase your intake of the following foods:

Berries – There are many types of berries and all of them are high in antioxidants. Antioxidants help destroy free radical, including ones that can affect the brain. Berries can improve neuron communication which also enhances memory and overall cognition.

Coffee and Dark Chocolate – Caffeine is also great for producing nootropic effects. Coffee and dark chocolate are two natural foods that have a high concentration of caffeine. Both foods also stimulate the brain improving focus and alertness.

Fish – Because they are high in Omega 3 fatty acids, fish is known as “brain food”. Omega 3 fatty acids help slow the decline of mental function, thus helping to keep your brain functioning at optimal levels.

Nuts – Nutrient packed nuts (more specifically walnuts) help boost mood and cognitive function because like berries and spinach, nuts are high in antioxidants.

Spinach – I am starting to understand why Popeye ate his spinach. Spinach has a lot of health benefits including benefits for your brain. Spinach (and other dark leafy greens) contain a high concentration of antioxidants that help expel free radicals. Spinach is also high in Vitamin E which increases brain tissue and assists in the release of dopamine.

 

How to Take Nootropics

If you do decide to take a nootropic supplement, whether that be a single nootropic compound, or a nootropic stack like many of those found in the fitness and sports nutrition industry it is important to know how to take nootropic supplements.

Nootropics should always be taken in accordance with the manufacturer’s directions on the labels. Some nootropic supplements require multiple doses throughout the day and others only require one dose daily.

 

Highest Rated Nootropics

Below are the supplements that I feel are the top-rated nootropics currently available in the supplement industry. Some are stacks while others are just individual products.

Onnit Alpha BrainOnnit Alpha Brain: Even though, I am not able to purchase and sell Onnit’s Alpha Brain on Just Max Fitness Nutrition because I don’t have a brick and mortar store, I still feel like this is the best Nootropic stack on the market. Alpha Brain’s ingredients have been clinically studied to prove their effectiveness. Alpha Brain also only requires one daily dose, so it is also extremely easy to take.   If you want to try Alpha Brain but still want to support the JMFN Story, you can purchase it through my Amazon Affiliate Link here

Mane Bran NootropicMagnum Supps (Nutraceuticals) - Mane Brain Nootropic Cannibal Genius by Chaos and Pain is a comprehensive nootropic that features 20mg of the nootropic Noopept per serving, combined with the powerful stimulant Acacia Rigidula and natural compounds; Ginko Bilboa, Theanine and Naringin which can also help increase focus.  Click the link above to buy directly from us at JMFN.

OptiMind Amazon LinkOptiMind Nootropic Brain Booster (As seen on Netflix) – OptiMind is another great nootropic as it features many of the ingredients we have researched above, plus a few others we would add if we were ever able to formulate a JMFN branded nootropic by adding in Vitamin D and Vitamin B-12.

 
Neuro IgniteHavasu Nutrition’s NeuroIgnite – NeuroIgnite is another nootropic stack that combines Huperzine A with Gingko Biloba to improve clarity, focus and memory. NeuroIgnite also provides similar directions to boost your brain function, on pill a day is all you need.
 

Citicoline CDPJarrow Formula’s Citicoline CDP Choline – Choline is in the above section titled “List of Effective Nootropics” and is known as the feel-good nootropic for its ability to boost one’s mood.

 

 

 

 

Overall, Are Nootropics worth it?

In closing, nootropics can help improve mood, boost memory, and increase the ability to learn. There are certainly more studies that should be done to prove the effectiveness, (they just haven’t been studied for as long as compound like creatine monohydrate to prove their effectiveness 100%) but there are certainly several scientific studies out that already prove their worth.

As the operator of JustMaxFitnessNutrition.com, and the supplement guy who vows to provide accurate (and scientific) information to the best of my knowledge, I conclude that nootropics can be useful in the proper scenarios. I have provided 5 of the better nootropics above based on my research and personal experience, but you can certainly do your own research to make sure you are getting a properly dosed product that will work for you.
