    FLOW STATE IN A BOTTLE

    Focus—it can be the difference between first and second place or meeting deadlines and missing them. Enter the elusive “flow state” at will with metaFOCUS® and zone in on what really matters.


    Formulated With Optimal Ingredients

    Formulated with 8 powerhouse nootropics including Sharp-PS®, ALCARPQQ and 4 brain vitamins to support improved focus, mental processing speed, and mental clarity.†


    Designed to Support Key Mental Areas

    Improved attention-span & focus†

    Mitochondrial Health & Energy Production†

    Mental Accuracy & Faster Processing Speeds†

    Reduce Brain Fog & Intrusive Thoughts†


    Eradicate Brain Fog.

    Improve Concentration.

    Brain fog is a common issue that people face daily. It is characterized by confusion, forgetfulness, and a lack of focus and clarity. By eradicating brain fog you’ll be able to maximize your daily work output and utilize your time more efficiently. 

    THE NEUROTRANSMITTER OF LEARNING

    One of the primary mechanisms our formula works is by modulating acetylcholine, the "learning neurotransmitter". 


    This neurotransmitter plays a key role in optimal cognitive functions specifically through improving attention-span, memory, and quick-thinking.[14]


    Lightning-Fast Mental Accuracy & Speed

    To optimize acetycholine levels, we've included ALCAR and CDP-Choline


    ALCAR is a form of amino acid L-Carnitine which crosses the blood-brain barrier more easily and has been shown to boost memory, alertness, and fluid thought.[15] 


    CDP-Choline boosts acetylcholine levels in the brain. Clinical trials have shown that CDP-Choline improved focus, accuracy, specifically increasing the formation of brain membranes by 26% and brain energy utilization by 13.6%.[16] [17]


    metaFOCUS can help you enter the elusive flow state while eradicating brain fog.

    SO WHAT IS FLOW STATE?

    flow state noun

    / flō ˈstāt /

    the brain’s optimal state of consciousness where an individual utilizes their skills to the utmost. In this state, individuals feel, perform, and focus at their best.


    Key Compounds FOR Flow State

    DMAE

    DMAE has been reported to improve vigilance, attention, mood and energy while alleviating depression. [10]

    Phosphatidylserine

    Phosphatidylserine has been shown to reduce cortisol, the "stress hormone", eradicating the stress that can hinder you in achieving flow state.[11]

    Dl-Phenylalanine

    In flow, the brain releases key neurotransmitters which Phenylalanine are the building blocks for.


    DL-Phenylalanine can also help reduce brain fog due to how it binds with glutamate AMPA receptors, improving communication between brain synapses.[12]

    Acetyl-L-Carnitine

    ALCAR has been shown to induce mental clarity and combat mental fatigue, supporting you in reaching flow.[13]

    In a decade-long study conducted by McKinsey and Co. top executives found themselves 500% more productive when in flow.


    FEATURED IN

    Relieve Stress and Boost Productivity


    Don’t let stress interrupt your workflow. metaFOCUS can help nullify mental stressors effectively and boost your productivity. 


    That’s why we’ve incorporated Sharp-PS® into our formula, a trademarked version of PhosphatidylSerine (PS), standardized to 60%PS is a nootropic that plays a critical role in improving mental performance and reducing the body’s physiological response to stress by lowering cortisol levels.[18]


    DL-Phenylalanine has been shown to enhance overall mood and improve ability to handle stress.[19]

    Reducing Stress SUPPORTS YOU IN Attaining zen-like concentratioN

    Clinical Trial

    PHOSPHATIDYLSERINE VS PLACEBO

    Golfers taking Phosphatidylserine noticed an increase in golfing accuracy and a decrease in perceived stress levels on the driving range compared to the placebo group.[20]

    Increased Ball Flight Accuracy

    PhosphatidylSerine supplementation significantly improved the ball flight accuracy of golfers as compared to the group that was given the placebo supplements.

    Reduced Stress Levels During Tee-Off

    PhosphatidylSerine supplementation improved perceived stress levels during tee-off on a driving range, while perceived stress levels remained unchanged in the placebo group.

    THE Powerhouse of our Cells

    Optimal mitochondria for an optimal you

    Mitochondria are the “powerhouses of our cells". They are responsible for every action in your body and brain. By improving the function of our mitochondria, the more energy they provide, which means a more optimal you. 

    Boost Mitochondrial Function

    ALCAR transports fatty acids into mitochondria where they are burned for fuel. The compound has been shown improve mood, mental endurance, and other cognitive functions.[21]


    The combination of Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) and PQQ (Pyrroloquinoline) both work to boost mitochondrial function.[22]

    Increase Cellular Energy Production

    PQQ is a micronutrient that acts as an antioxidant in your body, protecting your cells (and specifically your mitochondria) from damaging free radicals. The more mitochondria you have and the better they function, the more energy and longevity you can expect.[23]

    Strengthen Synapses Between Neurons

    The combination of Luteolin and Forskolin work through a process that strengthens neural synapses, called long-term potentiation. This works through an inhibition of the enzyme PDE4, which breaks down cAMP—messenger systems that relay signals in the brain. Luteolin, one of the compounds found in artichoke extract, is a proven PDE4 inhibitor. Forskolin (the compound extracted from the Coleus Forskohlii plant) has been shown to increase cAMP levels.[24]


    Higher cAMP levels results in better brain function in areas such as focus, learning, and memory.[25]

    The formula works to improve mitochondrial function, increase levels of key neurotransmitters, and strengthen neural synapses—to improve your focus, memory and overall brain function.†

    So far so good

    Feeling more focused and alert after over a week of usage. I have a high tolerance for stimulants, so I’m taking two days off per week to see if that helps.

    Actually amazing

    I have tried numerous nootropics. All promising to be the best on market with fancy labels. This one by far is the best one I have taken. I have it with a coffee each morning and just get in the zone at work. I am going to be an ongoing customer and will be spreading the word.
