    L-Theanine & Caffeine Improves Simple Reaction Time

    Haskell CF, Kennedy DO. The effects of L-theanine, caffeine, and their combination on cognition and mood. Biol Psychol. 2008

    Through clinical trials, researchers have found that 200 mg of l-theanine can increase alpha-wave activity in the brain, which allows you to be relaxed while awake–similar to a zen, meditative state.[1]


     When tested against placebo and caffeine, the combination provided quicker reaction times, improved memory recall, and enhanced verbal accuracy.[16]

    Ashwagandha has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for several thousand years and has been shown to help relieve stress, combat fatigue, and improve concentration.[4]

    N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine

    250 mg

    N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is a more bioavailable form of L-Tyrosine, an amino acid. The compound has been shown to increase attention, heighten alertness, and improve stress-resilience.[5]

    Worth trying again

    So when I initially tried the supplement, I didn't notice any significant changes in my mood or work performance. I canceled my subscription and left the unfinished bottle in the cabinet for months. If you are wondering why this is a 5 star review, well here is why: The things I struggle with are short-term memory, focus, anxiety, and energy fluctuations (typically manifesting in overwhelming feelings of tiredness). I started taking medication again for my ADHD. This initially had very promising results, however, my anxiety levels started to increase. The medication also seemed to have diminishing returns. I did not want to resort to steadily increasing my medication to combat tolerance. Also, after a significant amount of time, 6 months or so, of being on the medication my short-term memory seemed to be getting worse. So the short-term memory problem can be best described as reading retention issues. Having to re-read sentences or having to re-check emails to make sure I was reading them correctly. My normal week consists of 40 hours of work, 12 hours of school, maintaining my house and the remaining time is spent raising my son. It would not be a stretch to say that I am busy. This is important because MetaDrive is not a cure-all. It is not going to motivate me to do my work. It is not going to get me out of bed in the morning. I think I had unrealistic expectations of the supplement initially. I started trying to use the supplement again when my fiance mentioned "Hey, your memory has been a lot better lately!" I recalled a wifi password from nearly a year ago at her mom's house. It was like the fog was lifted and I could recall information more accurately. I was remembering things she said to me like "Remind me to throw clothes in the dryer after I get home from work." It was clearly working. The next thing I noticed was that halfway through the day, I wasn't overcome with the desire to take a nap. That has not been the case lately. So in summary I believe that this is due to the ingredients in Metadrive. I've tried other Nootropics with very little success. This supplement, however, has certainly made a positive change in my daily life. I'd recommend to anyone and say to at least give it a couple of weeks. Also, I would recommend limiting the use of caffeine products while taking metadrive.

    Morning boost

    I take these in the morning and it helps me get my day started. Takes about 20 minutes to start feeling the effects.
