NOÖ NECTAR Reviews
By: NOÖ NECTAR
NOÖ NECTAR is a Nootropic manufactured by NOÖ NECTAR. It is natural supplement that supports increased mental focus and concentration.
IntroductionI want to start by saying thank you to Noo Nectar for providing me the opportunity to review this product through the trooper program. This is my first nootropic formula that I have taken, so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect.
Noo Nectar says it will help you unlock your brain and unleash your potential. It is touted as a supplement providing "complete brain nutrition with over 20 scientifically-proven ingredients in a 1.7oz daily shot to help you be at your best in everything you do."
Ingredient ProfileNoo Nectar has a 3.6g prop blend of active ingredients...which I am not a very big fan of (especially given that the ingredients are supposed to augment my brain function). The ingredients consist of: N-Acetyl-L-Carnitinie, N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, Alpha GPC, DMAE Bitartrate, CDP-Choline, L-Theanine, Huperzine A, and Yohimbe Bark.
It also has 12g of sugar, which is worse than the coffee or sugar free energy drinks that I generally consume for some heightened focus and energy at work.
Overall, the ingredients seem pretty great. Noo Nectar is supposed to provide a "boost of energy without experiencing jitters," and "sustained energy up to 12 hours throughout your day without the crash you get from caffeine or artificial energy drinks." Additionally, the ingredients are supposed to "increase both your motivation and capacity to learn and apply. With more focus, concentration, short term and long-term recall, language fluidity and general comprehension levels."
NOTE** this product contains an undisclosed amount of yohimbe. I am a very experienced user of yohimbe. I regularly take high doses of yohimbe hcl during fasted cardio when I am cutting. I know how it makes me feel and I know how it adversely affects others. I generally do not have an adverse reaction.
Taste/Mixability/DosingThe taste is kind of like a medicine or, as another reviewer put it, like a 5-hour energy. I wouldn't say it is as pleasant as 5-hour energy, but it is somewhat comparable.
I tried taking this product at a half serving at a time and a whole serving at a time, either way I had similar effects (see below).
EffectivenessThis product made me focus, boy did it make me focus! Unfortunately, it had me focusing on the wrong stuff. Within minutes of taking Noo Nectar I was sweating my balls off! I wear a suit to work every day and after drinking Noo Nectar I was afraid to take my jacket off. I would sweat like I had just got out of the sauna. Consequently, I would focus on the absurd amount of sweat that was pouring out of my body, rather than focusing on my work. This product must have a ton of yohimbe in it (or something else) because I have never sweat this much from a yohimbe product. Don't get me wrong, that is typically why we all want yohimbe (fat burning and sweating) but not when I'm trying to focus at work.
Also, this product gave me energy, but it also made me jittery as heck! It didn't come on smooth and calm, but rather hit me like a ton of bricks. I'm used to taking tons of stimulants and various forms of yohimbe, but this product had me shaking and unable to stay in my seat.
I experienced these effects regardless of whether or not I took a half or whole serving.
ValueThe value is just not there. Direct, you can purchase a 30 day supply of Noo Nectar for $100. $3.33 per serving is pretty high, especially given the fact that my energy drinks and coffee only cost me around $1.50 per day (and don't make me sweaty and jittery).
Side EffectsUncontrollable sweating and jitters...for about 2-3 hours or so, resulting in added expenses at the dry cleaner (lol).
ConclusionNoo Nectar is a really cool idea, but it doesn't perform as advertised. It is way overpriced and has too many negative side effects. It's still a mystery whether or not this product unlocked my brain's potential or increased my ability to focus...this is in part due to the fact that my sweating and jitters were the sole focus each and every time I drank Noo Nectar.
IntroductionWhats Up SR, I wanted to give this product a try as it's an "on the go" type Nootropic and the first pre made one I have ever seen. I've been writing blogs lately and in combination with work, sometimes I need something to pick me up in the afternoons.
Ingredient ProfileRight out of the gate we have a big prop blend, not my favourite thing to see, and this is one very long prop blend. It starts off with a boat load of Vitamin B-12 (3000mcg). Another thing of note right away is the fact that each little bottle packs 12g of sugars and 4g of sugar alcohol. The blend is too long to list every ingredient, so I'll go over some of the key pieces and will attach a photo below of the whole label (which is also very tough to find online). Once again I have zero idea of the dosages of these ingredients. the prop blend is 3.667g
Agmatine Sulfate - I have no idea why this is in here to be honest, the only thing this is actually proven to do is help in regards to pumps, while there is some research thinking it may aid in Neurotransmission, this is all preliminary and overall unproven. This is the first ingredient on the label as well so we can assume there is a decent amount of it.
The focus ingredients:
-N- Acetyl- L- Carnitinie
- N- Acetyl- L- Tyrosine
- Alpha GPC
- DMAE Bitartrate
- CDP- Choline
- L- Theanine
- Huperzine A
- Yohimbe Bark
Overall very disappointed to see such a lack of clarity, I scoured their website and couldn't find a thing about the dosages or even a label.
