How Alpha BRAIN Instant Optimizes You

Alpha Brain Instant is our fastest way to help optimize your mental performance, without the use of any stimulants. In two double-blind trials, the Alpha Brain formula has demonstrated it has the ability to help improve memory, focus, and processing speed in healthy adults by targeting neurotransmitter precursors directly. This means Alpha Brain may help you remember names and places, focus on complex tasks, and improve your reaction time to external stimulus.†

Mental Performance

“Alpha Brain Instant does what an energy drink wishes it could. Acting directly on the neurotransmitters, there are no stimulants to send you on the rollercoaster, and the clinically tested formula has shown benefits to memory, focus and processing speed in healthy adults.

This is the ultimate ‘get s*** done’ formula.

In my opinion, nootropics with earth grown nutrients like Alpha Brain Instant are going to be as commonly utilized as caffeine to enhance mental performance.† And as a bonus, these naturally flavored drinks are pretty damn tasty and refreshing.”

– Aubrey Marcus, Onnit Founder

Delicious On-The-Go Fuel

Alpha Brain Instant is on-the-go fuel for your neurotransmitter system. Just mix in water and you have a delicious, refreshing beverage packed with earth grown nutrients, vitamins, and amino acids in a proprietary formula that has been clinically tested to help support memory, focus and processing speed in healthy adults.†

Alpha Brain Instant <em>vs.</em> <strong>Original Alpha Brain</strong>

The advantage of the powdered drink mix over original Alpha BRAIN is that you save the time it takes for the body to dissolve the capsule. The nutrients get delivered right away to your stomach, expediting absorption and how quickly they can cross the blood-brain barrier.

Alpha Brain can be used daily and is ready for integration into your routine, showing no significant adverse effects in 2 clinical trials and 4 years of use by our customers. If you aren’t using Alpha Brain yet, you are in a mental fight with a proverbial hand tied behind your back.†

Fueled By Earth Grown Nutrients

At the core of Alpha Brain Instant is earth grown nutrients. These are plants that have evolved alongside mankind, and in many cases like the Ayurvedic herb, Bacopa, have a history of use for millennia. Huperzia Serrata contains a potent acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, Huperzine A, that has shown the ability to enhance areas of cognition on its own. AC-11, despite the technical name, is extracted from Cat’s Claw, a revered Amazonian herb. Onnit is the only company in the world that has the right to use this exciting herbal extract in nootropic formulations.

The advantage of using earth grown nutrients is the overwhelming amount of data on safety. While chemical compounds often only have a few years of data with a limited subset of consumers, often times earth grown nutrients have thousands of years of utilization by people all over the world. This makes us even more confident that our formulas like Alpha Brain Instant are truly safe for daily use.†

In a clinical study, Alpha Brain showed improvements in executive function – the ability to focus on a goal and execute tasks as quickly as possible. This result was bolstered by measuring improvements in brain wave patterns vs placebo that are synonymous with the ability to focus.†

Alpha Brain is, quite simply, one of the best nootropics on the market. It's great for focus, productivity, and clean energy that helps me dominate the day.

As a writer, entrepreneur, and creative, Alpha Brain Instant is my go-to supplement on those days when I feel foggy, distracted, and uncreative. I love the peach mixed with sparkling water or the spice mixed with warm coffee and Onnit emulsified vanilla MCT. It's a natural way to help me focus and dial in my work flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant Seems to kick in faster than the pills. Regardless I sometimes forget why I process information so quickly and so calmly. Then remember it’s sometimes a good idea to slow down for the sheep surrounding us. People can be offended when answers and solutions that have eluded them can so quickly be ascertained thanks to properly functioning neurotransmitters. Be careful yo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel GREAT! I was nervous about this, because I'm new to actually supplementing, but it gives me such a great focus and I can work a sweat. I take it with my glutamine and it's fantastic. And I'm still getting over the no caffeine thing, in the supplements. I don't even need my coffee anymore. In fact, taking this near coffee time is so far too much for my nervous system. But I LOVE THIS STUFF!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this about a month ago and have been taking it 4 to 5 days a week. It's as good as regular Alpha Brain, but maybe better because it seems to work right away. With the capsules I found I would have to take it for a few days before I perceived any changes in my focus, clarity and dreams. I also think the powder is better priced, but not significantly. In general I like Alpha Brain for it's effects and it's much more easy than other nootropics I've tried that claim to help with focus. Basically, it works with out making me jittery. The flavor is a bit weird as I think all powder supplement drinks are but it's not terrible. Oh and it reacts weird to sparkling water so put it in flat water.
