NITROvit, originally created by Archie Marks for his own use 7 years ago, has come a long way since then and is able to more than hold its own against the competition. ‘Smart drugs’ or ‘nootropics’ are basically brain boosters. Many people are waking up to their benefits and incorporating them into their daily lives. What is it that makes some products stand head and shoulders above their competitors? Very often it comes down to factors like choice of ingredients, their quality and combination, extensive research and rigorous testing,
Archie Marks explains the refining process NITROvit has gone through over the years.
7 years ago I penciled the original NITROvit formula, initially designed to overcome issues I was having with focus, and memory recall. Fast forward and advances in modern medicine, coupled with real time feedback from hundreds of thousands of clients, have afforded the team the opportunity to fine tune my original formulation, refining and optimizing its benefits for you. Today, America’s NITROvit has go-getters from all over the world, feeling and performing at their very best – day in, day out.Archie Marks. Founder and CEO – Neuro Laboratories
How does NITROvit work?
The product works in three ways:
- It increases blood flow to the brain and strengthens the neurotransmitters.
The brain operates best when it’s full of blood because blood cells carry oxygen to the brain. This allows the mitochondria in the brain to produce chemical energy needed for the brain need to function properly.
- It breaks down deposits that slow down blood flow to the brain.
More blood flow means better function and increased ability to learn.
- It provides the brain with essential nutrients and increases neuroplasticity.
Nutritional support is needed by neurons to allow the brain to function at its best and to prevent cognitive decline. Neuroplasticity refers to the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by making new neural connections throughout life.
Who is NITROvit for?
- Older people suffering from memory loss and cognitive decline.
- Anyone with Attention Deficit Disorder
- Anyone with ‘scattered’ thinking or ‘brain fog’.
- Anyone wanting to improve learning ability and focus.
The 13 ingredients included in the formula are carefully selected for their benefits and their effectiveness is backed up by research.
- Vitamin B6 20mg
Vitamin B6 is probably one of the most important B vitamins in maintaining a healthy brain. It helps the body make neurotransmitters that carry signals from one nerve cell to another. It is very important for clear thinking and avoiding depression.
- Vitamin B12 150mcg
This vitamin performs multiple functions in the body. In the brain it helps maintain the myelin sheath around the neurons. Risk of dementia increases when this sheath is damaged. This powerful vitamin is being studied for its potential to prevent brain shrinkage in older people.
- Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl 200mg
This substance, also known as ALCAR, is rated highly by nootropic users. It is able to penetrate the blood-brain barrier, providing the brain with essential nutrients. It is shown to improve alertness, reduce fatigue, increase mitochondrial energy production, improve circulation and it also has anti-aging and neuroprotective properties.
- Alpha GPC Choline 100mg
This compound crosses the blood brain barrier and delivers choline to the brain. One of the main reasons it is used in a range of nootropics is that studies indicate its effectiveness in helping stroke patients with cognitive recovery. It is also being researched for its potential to treat Alzheimer’s and dementia. It increases mental focus, learning capacity and boosts memory,
- Alpha Lipoic Acid 100mg
Alpha-lipoic acid also passes easily into the brain. It helps to convert glucose into usable energy and top fitness experts recognize it as a natural energy booster. Studies are in progress to determine its potential for treating brain problems where free radical damage has taken place.
- Bacopa Leaf Powder 250mg
Indian texts as far back as the 6th century describe bacopa as sharpening intellect and reducing mental deficits. A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study done in 2001 found that subjects who took this herb had significant improvement in memory, especially when it came to retaining new information. Those with ‘scattered’ minds experience more clarity. It is also thought to improve mood by increasing dopamine and serotonin.
Centrophenoxin boosts the presence of acetylcholine in the brain. This neurotransmitter helps to form new bridges between nerve cells, leading to improved brain function. It also has neuroprotective effects and fights signs of aging.
- Macuna Pruriens
This ‘velvet’ bean is a therapeutic plant that helps improve overall focus, motivation and enhance mood. It contains L-Dopa, which stimulates the release of dopamine. It also has antioxidant properties, protecting neurons and preventing age-related cognitive decline.
- N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT)
In the brain, NALT is converted into L-Dopa which boosts mood by increasing dopamine release. NALT gives you a similar ability to focus as an amphetamine but without the negative effects. Using NALT on a daily basis can stimulate the mind, increasing mental alertness and alleviate stress.
- Phosphatidylserine 30mg
It is found in every cell of the body and about half of the total is found in the brain. It binds with the neurotransmitters and helps the brain to metabolize glucose. Athletes use this compound to delay the onset of fatigue. It also heightens communication between brain cells. It boosts memory and thinking and may help with relaxation, mood and sleep.
- Caffeine Anhydrous 50mg
Caffeine may not technically be a nootropic but it is commonly used in nootropic supplements for its ability to increase alertness, supports focus, reduce fatigue and improve endurance.
- Huperzine A 150mcg
This compound is extracted from a Chinese herb. It fights against the actions of Acetylcholinesterase (AcHE), a natural chemical in the brain that destroys the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine which is responsible for focus, learning and memory. It also helps to fight radicals and toxins, preventing age-related memory loss.
Noopept is highly regarded as a nootropic supplement. It has shown the ability to work almost immediately and there is also evidence that it increases a protein in the brain (NGF) that generates new neurons. This means potential long-term memory benefits. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and can protect existing neural cells, helping to prevent impairment of cognitive function and memory deterioration.
NITROvit is manufactured in a clean, hygienic facility where environmental conditions are controlled to limit any cross-contamination. No sacrifices are made with regard to quality of ingredients and their purity.
2 capsules per day for 90 days to experience optimum benefits. Don’t exceed 4 capsules in a 24-hour period.
Some of the ingredients need time for the effects to build up to be noticeable. Others may help more immediately.
Most people report increased motivation, elevated mood, ability to focus and reduced brain fog. Better quality of sleep and less anxiety is another benefit.
Long Term Results:
Improved memory recall and information retention is one of the long term benefits. The increased flow of blood to the brain helps cognitive function and learning. Vital brain nutrients have a neuroprotective effect, helping to slow down the aging process in the brain. ADD/ADHD sufferers report increased ability to focus.
In selecting the ingredients for the formula, one of the considerations was to include only those that showed the least side effects. However, it is always best to introduce any supplement gradually and monitor how you feel. NITROvit does not seem to produce any adverse side effects for most healthy people who take it. If you have a pre-existing health condition or are on any medication, you should always consult your doctor before taking any supplements.
- One bottle containing 30 capsules of NITROvit will cost you $58.97.
- If you buy three bottles, the price is $119.97 and shipping is free. (You save $56.94!)
A 60-day money back guarantee is offered. Simply return unopened bottles within 60 days and you will be refunded in full (less shipping and handling). Note that if you have opened a bottle it cannot be returned.
What makes NITROvit stand out?
All the ingredients used have a great track record when it comes to brain function. The product is manufactured according to GMP (good manufacturing practices) so quality can be expected. Knowing exactly what ingredients make up the formula, how much is used and how the product is manufactured goes a long way to creating confidence in a market where ingredients used for products differ greatly in quality. Some pre-made nootropic stacks even contain ingredients like food coloring and fructose! Others consist largely of vitamins that are found in many much cheaper multi-vitamin supplements.
The NITROvit website has testimonials written by customers who have benefited from using the product. I have included just an extract from one of these below:
Marc A. Mercier of New Hampshire says “For the past several months I have been suffering from “brain fog”. In 5th grade I was tested and scored a 176 on a certified IQ test (121 is average), but as of late it felt like I should be institutionalized or tested for dementia or Alzheimer’s the fog was so bad. … Excited at the prospect of clearing my “brain fog”, I took one right off. I heard talk of it taking about 45 minutes. I noted the time. A little less than an hour later the fog lifted and was able to concentrate more naturally than having to force myself to concentrate …. After a few days, the world around me became more “real” as opposed to the feeling of watching a live TV show. A week later I can honestly state that I feel substantially better, I am able to concentrate and my fluidity of thought is about 75% of what it used to be.
The Bottom Line
There is no doubt as to the effectiveness of each of the individual ingredients included in the formula. Many of them have also been proven to work effectively together. Alpha GPC, and Noopept, for example, help to maximize the brain-boosting effects of the other ingredients. When stacked together, these ingredients have great brain boosting potential. Remember that it is usually necessary to test a nootropic substance for about 12 weeks to get maximum benefit. If you’re looking for a good brain booster, I can recommend that this one is worth a try.
