After swallowing 1-3 capsules of Optimal Focus, expect to feel a growing effect within the first 10 minutes. This effect may feel like a healthy sense of clarity or focus. The effect is mild at first and continuously amplifies over time and peeks about 30 minutes in. Then, at about an hour to 90 minutes in, you may feel a second wave of healthy clarity and focus. It hits you and then evens out. The effects of Optimal Focus appear to last on average about 6 to 8 hours with a very mild effect lasting until the following day.†
Typically, there is no change in mood, digestion, or energy levels. Optimal Focus is not stimulating. In fact, it's more calming. The phrase of 'I'm feeling of calm, cool and collected' comes to mind.†
If one is already quite calm and they use Optimal Focus, they may experience an additional sense of calm which may lead to low mood. If low mood is experienced a few days, or some extended period of time, after using taking Optimal Focus, consider supporting a healthy mood with Serotonin Nutrients.†
Research shows that low mood may occur if the levels of acetylcholine are greater than the levels of serotonin. By using Serotonin Nutrients and Optimal Focus, you are supporting a healthier ratio of the two. Use Serotonin Nutrients only when experiencing a low mood and wanting to support a positive mood.†
If low mood is experienced right away with Optimal Focus, then it likely is not the right supplement for you. You may need Active B12 with L-5-MTHF Lozenges or the Hydroxo B12 with Folinic Acid Lozenges instead.†
If you want a smoother effect from Optimal Focus, consider taking 1 capsule of Phosphatidyl Serine. For those who like the feeling that Optimal Focus provides by itself, there is no need for Phosphatidyl Serine. For those who think that Optimal Focus is too intense for them, then using Phosphatidyl Serine is recommended along with making sure you're using a lower amount of Optimal Focus.†
Remember, the Suggested use of 3 capsules is just recommended. You may find that 1 capsule works very well for you.
