Norepinephrine and Dopamine are key neurotransmitters for the maintenance of alertness and mental acuity and for promoting a feeling of general well-being. These two neurotransmitters are produced in the body from the amino acid precursors L-Tyrosine and L-Phenylalanine. This conversion process also requires Vitamins C and B-6 as cofactors. NOW True Focus combines these important nutrients with other ingredients like Ginkgo biloba and DMAE to maximize mental agility without any stimulating side effects.
As a dietary supplement, take 1-2 capsules 1 to 2 times daily between meals, or use as directed by a health practitioner. Consider taking these other NOW products: Methyl B-12 and Kava Kava.
Cellulose (capsule), magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silica.

I ordered this based on the recommendations by Julia Ross in her "Mood Cure" book. After reading it I realized that I exhibit many of the symptoms therein, brought on by many years of intense stress due to severe marital problems. Prolonged stress takes a heavy toll on the mind and body that isn't easy recovered from without some help. I wasn't interested in the kind of "help" that the typical doctor would recommend. Thankfully, there are natural approaches, like the amino acids in True Focus, which are balanced to, among other things, rejuvenate adrenal function. My adrenals had been under so much stress for so many years that they just weren't functioning right anymore. This meant that I had gotten to the point of not being able to cope with even relatively minor stress anymore. I also had no energy at all, which was especially pronounced in the morning. I compensated with coffee which, according to Julia Ross, is the worst possible remedy (caffeine is terrible for healthy brain chemistry). I've tried giving up coffee before, but was never successful. With a couple True Focus first thing upon arising, and then a couple more mid-morning, I have energy now that I haven't experienced in twenty years! My mood is vastly improved. I can cope with stress now. I'm no longer dragging and fatigued (no need for an afternoon nap). True Focus has made a huge improvement in the quality of my life. Highly recommended.
I'm offering one star only based on the smell of this product. It really is the rankest smelling product I've ever encountered...makes valerian almost smell good After handing the capsules, my fingers have an aged urine smell that I, of course, must immediately remove. Don't bring this stuff on trips--it will gross other people out.

I have been taking these for about 2 weeks in the morning on an empty stomach. The first week i took 2 a day & noticed i would get irritable! So went down to one a day & feel better. I got these for the tyrosine (precursor to dopamine), phenylalanine & cofactors hoping it would help my depression but i havent noticed much difference yet. (I am on SSRIs which apparently deplete dopamine). I have noticed a slight improvement in energy. I will continue to take them & hope i will feel more improvement.
Used for years!

This product is helpful for keeping minds from wandering and staying on task.
Hmm, some kind of an allergy to it

My husband gets some small pimples over his mouth every time he tries this product. When he stops taking it, pimples go away. I am taking it every day, and no allergy appeared so far. Hovewer, it's difficult to say whether such products really work. According to japanese researches, gingko is extremely good for anti-oxidant effects, so let's hope something really happens.

I been using this for a couple months and i do feel a positive change, more happy or energetic. I weight lift 5 times a week but my job has me sitting a lot, it give me a mental boost in concentration and motivation
Works well, but tolerance builds quickly

I started using this about a month ago. I have some problems with low energy, lack of mental clarity, and generally feeling sluggish both physically and mentally. When I started using True Focus the effects were noticeable within an hour, and I felt fantastic. I was high energy and very focused and sharp. The only downside was that sometimes my words would come out a little slurred, almost like being a bit drunk. But if I paid attention to it I could easily speak clearly. For the first week it was very very nice, but then the effects started to become less pronounced, less of a focused, sharp alertness, and more of a calm, neutral alertness. I still remained alert, and I maintained energy without getting tired until the evening. Now I don't notice the effects, but if I think about how I was a month ago, right now I am more alert and don't get tired as easily. I suspect the effects might continue to diminish as I build more tolerance. So I think it's important to cycle this supplement, maybe take it for a week or two and then switch to a different "alertness" supplement for a week or two that works on different neurotransmitters. Also, with this supplement you can get away with sleeping for a shorter period of time and still feel fine the next day. But, that can catch up with you and affect your skin, give you dark circles, harm your general health, etc. So don't abuse that benefit of the product. Overall great, just remember that the initial effects are not permanent.
