How many ingredients does it take to make a potent nootropic designed for focus, memory, and attention? 5? 8? 10?
The actual number is 28 based on Focus Fast by Enyotics Health. It’s hard to imagine how they managed to fit 28 ingredients into one tablet, but they somehow did it.
Focus Fast by Enyotics Health is claimed to be the world’s number 1 and the only Neuro Focusing Agent designed to improve working memory, increase focus and enhance attention.
With 28 ingredients per serving, is Focus Fast really as good as it claims to be or will throwing anything but the kitchen sink make it a mediocre brand? Read our Focus Fast review to find out.

3) What’s Inside Focus Fast?
There are 28 key ingredients in Focus Fast not including the vitamins and minerals.
Vitamins & Minerals
Focus Fast contains a plethora of B vitamins, Vitamin C, and chromium and calcium. The daily values of their B vitamins go beyond 100%, with three at around 2000%.
That may seem like overkill, but B vitamins are water soluble, so the body tends to just excrete them through urination and even sweating.
Acute Attention Complex
This appears to be their mental energy blend. It notably contains gotu kola, a “slow release” type of caffeine source, Acetyl-L-Carnitine for brain energy and metabolism, and Bacopa Monnieri for memory.
Advanced Neuro Complex
This blend is Focus Fast’s brain function and mood blend, powered by Alpha GPC, which is a good source of bioavailable choline, and a combo of Tyrosine and Huperzine for clarity and mood.
Deep Memory Complex
As the name suggests, this blend is formulated for memory retention, but also to reduce stress.
Some of the notable ingredients are Ginkgo Biloba for memory and Ashwagandha, one of the most popular adaptogens in the industry.
Maximum Focus Complex
For their focus blend, Focus Fast includes Green Tea and Rhodiola, two ingredients that aren’t really used for focus as much as to help relieve stress and anxiety.
Theanine and 5-HTP are practically mood enhancers. The true focus ingredient is Panax Ginseng.
4) Does Focus Fast Work?
Good supplements should find a way to marry quality and quantity, and we think Focus Fast put too many eggs on quantity of ingredients over quality of dosage.
While 28 ingredients in one formula does sound impressive, it does pose two big problems:
- Too many ingredients means a lot of ingredient interaction, which can lead to many potential side effects
- There’s just not enough dose to go around, especially in a tablet medium
Putting 28 ingredients together under 1.3 grams means you’re bound to have ingredients that won’t really do anything. They would be broken down by stomach acids and what’s left would be too small to be metabolized or to be used by the body.
With confidence, we can therefore say that Focus Fast just won’t work as intended.
It will help you get your daily vitamins and minerals boost, but we’re not sure if it will positively affect brain function.
Now, if you’re after a supplement that has a more focused approach on their formula, we think Procera AVH and its three-ingredient formula is worth a look.

10) Our Final Take On Focus Fast
Focus Fast is marketed as a nootropic that can help with memory, attention, and of course, focus.
The product contains over 30 vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, a way of creating something that’s too big to fail. However, they failed to capitalize on one thing and that’s the dosage.
They put 28 key ingredients, but all of them are sharing not more than 1.3 grams. Then, the blends also displayed lack of synergy and some ingredients are in blends that don’t make sense. This shows that the people behind Focus Fast have little to no knowledge of what a quality formula is supposed to be.
Needless to say, we don’t recommend Focus Fast.
