Focus2 is a caffeine-free brain enhancing supplement that cares for people aged 4 to 84 to help them do things specifically to school, study, work or at home. It has a unique and balanced list of six ingredients, including magnesium, which showed a positive contribution to concentration and learning ability. It is designed and manufactured by a relatively new manufacturing company named “Paneuromix” who claims that their product is completely free of caffeine and other stimulants that can cause jitteriness. They also offer a full money back guarantee.


1) Quick Overview

Focus2 is a dietary supplement that promises much of the same things as other nootropics: this will stimulate memory, sharpen your thinking and improve concentration. Focus2, as you may have guessed, is an improvement over the original formula (however, this is actually the 4th generation of the NZT formula). The supplement manufacturer, Paneuromix is open and honest about its ingredient list. Following is the complete picture of the ingredients along with their specific doses and the powerful effects.

Alpha-GPC (250 mg) – the most effective ingredient to take to increase the availability of acetylcholine in the brain. This is a direct precursor of acetylcholine, which is an essential neurotransmitter. More acetylcholine means more reflectivity and thinking power.

Bacopa Monnieri (200 mg) – at least as far as cognitive enhancement goes, this is something of a wonder herb. As explained on the nootropics ingredients page, it is linked to everything from protecting brain cells and reducing anxiety to improve communication of neurons and retention of memory.

Huperzine A (50ug) – it is an acetylcholinesterase (an enzyme that breaks acetylcholine) inhibitor. When a cholinergic such as Alpha-GPC promote the production of acetylcholine, Huperzine A prevents the enzyme which degrades it from being synthesized.

Ginkgo Biloba (250 mg) – This herbal extract has greatly improved cerebral blood flow. Many people feel immediately benefiting from better brain circulation.

Phosphatidylserine (100 mg) – a fundamental constituent of brain tissue that is also necessary for brain development and nerve growth. It can sharpen thinking power and help improve focus and concentration.

Final Thoughts

6) Final Thoughts on Focus2

Focus2 contains plenty of healthy ingredients, and the dosages are quite generous for the most important ones (Alpha-GPC, Gingko, and Bacopa in particular). It could well lead to improved cognition and memory in most users with few side effects if any at all. However, an enormous possible disadvantage of the product is the DMAE content that can cause above mentioned side effects in certain consumers. If you have a medical problem, are taking medication, pregnant or a nursing mother, you should talk to your healthcare professional before taking this supplement.
