Many of you have asked how you can support the work of Gateway Pundit.
One way is through a partnership we’ve developed with Mike Cernovich’s supplement company.
They’ve created Gorilla Mind Smooth and Gorilla Mind Rush, two supplements that promise to improve focus. You can read all about the details below.
Thank you for your support of Gateway Pundit, and let us know what you think of these products.
Here’s more information, from the folks at Gorilla Mind:
If you have never heard of Nootropics, it is a new niche emerging in the supplement industry that has been getting widespread attention.
The two main reasons for all the attention: the evidence supporting improved cognitive function, as well their potential applications in preventing neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Dementia [R, R].
Mike Cernovich recently launched a Nootropic designed around his personal daily cognitive enhancing supplement regimen.
There are two variations of the product:
Smooth has several non-stimulant based ingredients, which provides the mental edge needed to stay focused, without being kept awake all night wired like you would experience with traditional energy drinks, coffee, or other stimulant concoctions.
What it does: Gives a boost in mental clarity and improve concentration during daily tasks, without the annoying jittery over the top side effects caffeine can cause.
The bigger draw of the product is the big increase of Choline and Acetylcholine the Nootropics provide, as a shocking amount of people are deficient in this essential nutrient needed for optimal brain function.
Knowing that those nutrient needs are being met fully is reassuring, as preventing cognitive decline is a priority.
According to Gloria Mark, who studies digital distraction at the University of California, Irvine, it takes almost 25 minutes to get focused again after a distraction [R].
We all know how easy it is to get distracted, especially if you’re on a computer.
Each time you get distracted it can take a while to get back on track and zone in, or you might just end up wasting the day entirely not being able to stay on task.
Gorilla Mind Smooth seems to help cut that time down, as well as prevent it from occurring as frequently.
Gorilla Mind Smooth
Gorilla Mind Smooth is made in a GMP FDA-certified facility in the United States and is packed with strong, high quality, clinically proven Nootropics.
DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol): DMAE increases the levels of acetylcholine in the brain; resulting in increased levels of processing and transmitting of information, enhancement of mental concentration and focus , better memory and elevated mood .
Phenylethylamine HCL: Naturally occurring in the nervous system, Phenylethylamine HCL acts as a neuromodulator.
In the brain, it signals the release of norepinephrine and dopamine, two hormones that greatly increase mood, sense of well-being, energy levels, and stress relief [3,4].
Phenylethylamine HCL also stimulates the release of Acetylcholine in the brain, which is critical for supporting memory, learning, focus, concentration, information recall, and a variety of other benefits .
L-Tyrosine: The most bio-available form of Tyrosine, L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that balances neurotransmitter levels in the brain resulting in increased energy and motivation, relief in the mind of stress and anxiety, and the improvement of mental focus and concentration [6,7,8].
L-Theanine: L-Theanine works by targeting four key neurotransmitters: GABA, Serotonin, Dopamine, and Norepinephrine.
These neurotransmitters are responsible for feelings of attention, stress, arousal, and pleasure.
By mitigating the over-activity of neurons, L-Theanine helps to calm down the brain, reduce stress, and get rid of anxiety .
This is why L-Theanine complements stimulants like caffeine so tremendously too, as it takes the edge off of stimulants that can cause jitters and over-stimulation.
L-Theanine also improves memory, focus, attention to detail, information retention, and motivation levels .
Alpha-GPC: Alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine (Alpha-GPC) is the highest quality and most bioavailable form of choline, meaning it will work much better and much faster than standard choline.
After crossing the blood brain barrier Alpha-GPC provides the brain with a rapidly absorbed form of choline.
It also starts aiding in the synthesis and release of acetylcholine.
The surge of quickly absorbed choline in conjunction with the release of acetylcholine causes a substantial improvement in cognitive functioning, memory, HGH levels, physical performance, concentration, focus, and information absorption/recall [11,12,13].
Bacopa Monnieri: Used as an anti-aging supplement that protects neurons in the brain from accumulative damage, Bacopa Monnieri acts as an antioxidant, cognitive enhancer, and neuroprotectant .
By increasing kinase activity in the brain, a faster rate of transmission is achieved which enhances mood, mental energy, information absorption/recall, memory, and reduces anxiety, as well as joint and muscle pain [15,16].
It may also produce mild amounts of euphoria.
Theacrine (as TeaCrine®): Theacrine is a compound that is structurally very similar to caffeine, and can exert stimulant-like effects in the body.
The key word being “stimulant-like.”
Theacrine is an amazing ingredient that allows those who can’t handle traditional stimulants like caffeine to still enjoy the benefits that caffeine can provide, without any of the tolerance build up, jitters, crashing, or stark feelings of highs and lows in energy [17,18].
It simply provides a smooth, long-lasting boost in energy with no desensitization to the compound with repetitive usage, as well as an improvement in mood, productivity, and focus [17,18,19].
Hordenine: This compound promotes focus, euphoria, mental alertness, an increased metabolic rate, as well as overall cognitive function [20, 21].
Aside from that though, one of the main purposes Hordenine serves is as a very powerful potentiator of Phenylethylamine HCL.
Monoamine Oxidase (MAO) is an enzyme in the body that breaks down Phenylethylamine, dopamine, as well as other important neurotransmitters.
Normally, Phenylethylamine HCL is only potent in the body for a very short period of time.
However, Hordenine acts as a potent MAO inhibitor, meaning it inhibits the effects of the enzyme MAO, thus preventing the breakdown of neurotransmitters from occurring, allowing Phenylethylamine HCL to exert its’ full benefits in the body, and significantly increasing its’ active life in the body .
Piperine (Black Pepper Fruit Extract): Allows the body to absorb and utilize all of the ingredients in this formula more effectively.
This ultimately results in greater bioavailability and benefit from each individual ingredient, as well as making the effects last longer [22,23,24].
Huperzine A: Huperzine A blocks the action of cholinesterase in the brain [25,26,27].
The result of this is increased levels of acetylcholine in the brain.
It also promotes neurogenesis (the birth of new neurons in the brain), protects neurons that are already in the brain from damage, and acts as a neuroprotective agent [28,29].
These high acetylcholine levels ultimately lead to greatly enhanced memory and cognitive function .
Huperzine A has been used in China as a herbal medicine for years, and it helps offset neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s via its ability to improve memory and acting as a neuroprotectant .
It also acts as a potent Somatostatin inhibitor in the body, resulting in greater HGH levels, which has a multitude of benefits for body composition and anti-aging .
Clinical and Academic Studies:
How to Take Gorilla Mind Smooth
User experience will vary and is dose-dependent, but this is what you can expect if you take Gorilla Mind Smooth on an empty stomach (without additional caffeine) –
Within 15 minutes – You will notice that your ability to focus and concentrate is slightly higher than your baseline state.
Within 1 hour – You will notice that your ability to focus and concentrate is undoubtedly increased beyond your baseline state. Only a very slight increase in energy will be observed.
After 90 minutes – Your ability to be productive, concentrate, multitask without being distracted will peak and remain for an additional 4 or 5 hours. Anxiety levels WILL NOT be aggravated, and you may notice a slight increase in well-being. Very minor appetite suppression may be noticed, but it will not be significant.
After 6-8 hours – You will slowly return to your baseline cognitive state.
Gorilla Mind Smooth has ABSOLUTELY NO CRASH.
GORILLA MIND SMOOTH TIP
(For those who regularly consume coffee)
Try 3 capsules of Gorilla Mind Smooth in the morning with iced coffee and – if needed – 4 hours later with iced coffee.
How to Buy Gorilla Mind Smooth
If you are a caffeine junkie, you might want to get Gorilla Mind Rush instead.
That product is a best seller, which isn’t surprising given how much daily coffee consumption has spiked in the past decade.
If you do give Gorilla Mind Rush a try, don’t take it any later than the early afternoon, or you could find yourself laying in bed later that night with your eyes wide open for hours.
Thank you for supporting Gateway Pundit!
