For some time now, I have been researching nootropics. As many of you have experienced, I have lost loved ones to various brain diseases. These loses led me to my passion for studying brain health. I just had to learn how we could keep our brains operating at optimal efficiency. My research started with me experimenting with different products that were known nootropics. Some worked well (and quickly) because they were caffeinated, but the effects of those products wore off after a few weeks of use. Next, I tried a few powdered formulas, but most of those turned out to be pre-workouts disguised as nootropic powders. Another issue I noticed was that some products had to be taken for months and months before they started to work. In today’s fast-paced society, we don’t have months to wait to see if a product works. Now, after all the research I’ve done and all the products that I’ve tried (and all of the conversations I have had with good friends), I am here to share my knowledge with you.
From day one, I noticed Americans (as well as the rest of the developed world) live in a busy culture. Our lives have plenty of stressors, and the stressors seem to keep coming. We have deadlines, kids, school (for the kids or ourselves), physical fitness and health, work, bills, travel, and the list goes on. We deal with all of these, and life doesn’t care if we can’t keep up! Your job doesn’t care if you’re dealing with brain fog. You still need to execute whatever tasks have been assigned. If you’re in school, the exams will come whether you’re ready or not. If you’re a parent, your kids still need you to be at full mental capacity regardless of how you’re feeling. And we all know the bills are coming regardless of what we’re going through or how much money we have.
Because we live in this fast-paced society, we need a product that will keep us focused on all of the tasks that need to be done. A product that will keep us as productive as possible no matter how hectic each day gets. A product that keeps cortisol (the stress hormone) and our immune system from getting overworked. A product that has ingredients that have been shown to combat brain aging. Believe it or not, a product like that is not “too good to be true” and it stands above the rest of the nootropics supplements. It is quickly becoming the world’s fastest-growing nootropic product. It is the product that will help you “Get Shit Done,” and that product’s name is Azoth 2.0 from the company Seeking Azoth!
Once you try it, you’ll definitely see why Azoth 2.0 is the world’s fastest-growing nootropic product! Seeking Azoth wanted to bring a shift in the nootropic market, so the product has a unique ingredient profile. One of the first things you will notice is that Azoth 2.0 is caffeine-free. You see, the problem is most nootropic products grossly underdose the ingredients that are supposed to help our brains function better, and they add a strong dose of caffeine so you “feel” like the product is working. Though caffeine does have focus and energy-boosting properties, it still has its drawbacks. One drawback occurs when companies opt to use Caffeine Anhydrous, a form of concentrated caffeine, that can cause a surge in cortisol when there is no Teacrine/Theanine added to the formula. The cortisol surge leads to an adrenal burnout that leaves you with that “crash” feeling you may have experiences with many pre-workouts/fat burners. I don’t know about you, but I know I am not focused when I am feeling burnt out. Another drawback is the fact that caffeine (in high concentrations) acts as a diuretic. How much work can you get done if you’re constantly running to the bathroom? I am not saying that you need to stay away from all caffeine while you are trying to increase focus and productivity. That is a personal choice. What I am saying is that I’ve seen way too many people over caffeinating themselves. Supplement companies know this, and to be quite honest, and they want you to have a dependence on caffeine. That is why they put a high dose of caffeine in their nootropics. The great news is Seeking Azoth takes a different approach. They want you to have a product that does all they claim it does without the caffeine. But you want caffeine still? No problem. You can stack Azoth 2.0 with your caffeinated products. Just remember to be smart about it, and don’t overdo it with the caffeine.
So, how does Seeking Azoth’s Azoth 2.0 keep you focused and productive while helping you deal with stress and fight brain aging? Let’s take a look at the ingredients to see how they work in perfect synergy to accomplish such a great feat!
Ashwagandha Extract 4:1 – This Ayurvedic plant is one of the world’s most studied adaptogens. An adaptogen is a natural substance (usually an herb or vitamin) that helps bring the body back into homeostasis. Ashwagandha has more than 4,000 years of recorded use and more than 200 studies showing its many benefits. Most companies offer Ashwagandha as a means to help customers deal with stress, anxiety, and depression. Others like to use Ashwagandha for immune and thyroid boosting formulas. What many do not know is that Ashwagandha also has many brain benefits. Human studies on the use of Ashwagandha have shown increased levels of the neurotransmitters acetylcholine and GABA. Increased acetylcholine levels lead to better focus and recall, improved memory, and even improved muscle function. In addition, increased levels of GABA help protect your mind and body from overstimulation which leads directly to GABA’s calming effects; and the brain benefits don’t stop there. Ashwagandha has also been shown to help improve blood flow and arterial system health by increasing the body’s production of nitric oxide. Increased nitric oxide elevates oxygen levels in the brain. Having elevated oxygen levels in the brain leads to improved cognition. Therefore, in some cases, Ashwagandha has been shown to help patients dealing with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, and Seeking Azoth uses the strongest extract of Ashwagandha in the supplement market today! No bullshit, other patented forms of this incredible herb don’t even come close to the 4:1 extract used in Azoth 2.0.
L- Tyrosine – L- Tyrosine is an amino acid that has been shown to increase levels of Dopamine (as well as Epinephrine and Norepinephrine) in the brain. L-Tyrosine has also been shown to help improve alertness and learning while decreasing brain fog. Even when the body is under stress (or sleep-deprived), L-Tyrosine has still been shown to help with alertness and brain fog.
Phosphatidylserine (20%) – Phosphatidylserine (also known as PS) is an awesome ingredient that can benefit people of all ages! It is a critical component that covers each cell in the human body. It has many functions, but it is most widely known for its brain-boosting properties. Our bodies can produce Phosphatidylserine, but the majority of it comes from the foods we should be eating. The problem, however, is many people are not eating the foods that contain PS. PS has been shown to help reduce stress, enhance memory, reduce cognitive decline, boost overall mood, reduce depression, and boost workout performance. PS has also been shown to stimulate the production of acetylcholine leading to an increase in cognitive function in both young and elderly patients alike. PS has also been shown to stimulate glucose metabolism which helps to keep blood sugar from rising and dropping during stressful times. A study reported in Sports Medicine back in 2006, showed that supplementing with PS for ten days helped reduce muscle soreness and increase the time to exhaustion for male cyclists. When working hard to get shit done, who wouldn’t want faster muscle recovery, leveled blood sugar, and less stress?
Sulbutiamine – While Sulbutiamine is an ingredient that not many know about, you should be glad it was included in Azoth 2.0! Sulbutiamine is a fat-soluble derivative of Vitamin B1(also known as Thiamin) that was formulated by Japanese scientists in the early twentieth century. It was formulated to help men in the Japanese Navy who were suffering from a condition known as Beriberi. The issue was the diets of men were critically low in Vitamin B1, and this caused them to experience constant confusion, numbness in their hands and feet, and loss of appetite and weakness. After a few weeks of receiving this form of B1, the men noticed a decrease in many of their symptoms. Now, you don’t have to have a B1 deficiency to see results from Sulbutiamine supplementation. Sulbutiamine has been shown to enhance long-term and episodic memory and to help increase the neurotransmitter acetylcholine just like Ashwagandha and PS. Sulbutiamine has also been shown to increase energy for those dealing with chronic fatigue and reduce fear and anxiety for those with major depressive disorder.
Alpha GPC 50% – Alpha GPC is one of the best forms of Choline in the sports supplement market. Unlike other Choline supplements, Alpha GPC has the most Choline by weight. Most Alpha GPC supplements are about 40% Choline by weight, but Azoth 2.0 gives you 50% Choline by weight. This form of Choline is also one of the most bioavailable forms as it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier faster while still keeping your acetylcholine levels higher for a longer period of time. One study on Alpha GPC had one group of participants taking a strong dose of Alpha GPC and another group taking a placebo. After ten days, the participants were then given a drug (Scopolamine) that induces Dementia like side effects. The results were astonishing. Those that took the Alpha GPC passed all of the cognitive tests they were given, but those who took the placebo experienced a significant decline in brain function for at least 6 hours after taking Scopolamine. Alpha GPC has also been shown to boost strength and help the body release more growth hormone. When the body releases more growth hormone, it leads to an increase in the development of lean muscle mass.
Bacopa Monnieri Extract – Bacopa Monnieri extract is yet another versatile product in Azoth 2.0. It is one of the world’s oldest known nootropic aids. Bacopa Monnieri has much memory and learning benefits. Bacopa not only helps with the production of acetylcholine, along with the other ingredients in Azoth 2.0, but it also inhibits the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine in the brain. Bacopa also helps boost levels of Serotonin and Gaba in the brain which makes it great for balancing mood and keeping the body calm when dealing with stress. It is also known to have liver health benefits, to be a powerful antioxidant, to help reduce inflammation, boost immunity, to strengthen the heart, and to do much, much more!
Teacrine – Teacrine has definitely been a personal favorite of mine for a few years. Teacrine comes from Theacrine, a product with a chemical structure similar to caffeine. Theacrine comes from the Kucha Camellia Assimica plant species. Think of it as an ingredient that gives you many of the benefits of caffeine without any of the side effects. Teacrine boosts energy, focus, concentration, motivation, and positive mood. Studies have shown (and I have experienced it myself) that unlike caffeine, your body will not build a tolerance to Teacrine. In other words, Teacrine will work the exact same way every time you use it. Doses of up to 200 milligrams a day (or more) have been shown to be safe and effective. Those who choose to consume caffeine while on Teacrine will notice they work well together. Teacrine works to enhance caffeine’s benefits while calming the side effects of caffeine. Whether you take it with or without caffeine, Teacrine will help you get shit done!
Bioprene – Bioprene is a patented form of Black Pepper extract known for its nutrient absorption enhancements. Black Pepper Extract has been shown to increase the time absorbed nutrients remain in the bloodstream. In other words, instead of the nutrients being metabolized quickly and excreted by the body, Bioprene gives your body time to access and use the nutrients.
Huperzine A – Huperzine A is an alkaloid from Huperzia Serrata extract (also known as Chinese Club Moss). Huperzine A, along with Bacopa, inhibits the breakdown of acetylcholine in the brain. It has been used to help fight the cognitive decline in the elderly or to enhance mental energy for those in need of better focus. Although the goal of Azoth 2.0 is to help you get shit done, Huperzine A supplementation has also been shown to increase sleep quality. It makes sense though. More restful sleep means you will be waking up ready to get shit done!
Since the first week of April, Azoth 2.0 has been apart of my supplement regimen. This product from the first dose has kept me energized, focused, on task for hours on end, and kept my stress levels at bay. With using Azoth 2.0, hours can go by and you won’t even realize it because you’ll be getting shit done! I know this from experience. The very first time I tried it, I was working on an article for my job’s website. I took 4 caps with a can of Celsius. I initially didn’t “feel” anything. Then a few hours later I was completely done writing a supplement article, something that has never happened before! I have a tendency of getting distracted very easily, at times stressed out trying to be a perfectionist. It has taken me days, sometimes even weeks to finish a supplement article. Not with that first dose of Azoth 2.0. I also worked an eleven hour day as well. I couldn’t believe how much I got done, even on a busy workday. That very same day I logged on to getazoth.com, and I have been a user ever since. This is one product that will always be in my supplement cabinet. Are you convinced yet that this is a nootropic worth trying? If you are convinced, head on over to getazoth.com to order a bottle. If you’ve been interested in Azoth 2.0, I hope this article helps. And when you do order a bottle, expect to get shit done!
