WHAT IS IT?
You read that right, kiddies! Brain Force is the creation of conspiracy theorist and talk radio personality, Alex Jones. You’ve probably heard of him; he’s the guy behind Infowars, a controversial website that seeks to debunk national tragedies like 9/11 and the Sandy Hook Massacre and spew venom about politicians and public figures while warning his listeners about chemtrails and the like.
Whether you agree with Jones or not, one thing is undeniable after you’ve watched him speak—the guy has tons of energy and is sharp as a tack! So it’s no wonder that the dude who said, “They wanna shutter your mind,” has stepped up to the plate to expand your mind, to give you the opportunity to best your competitors and oppressors with the gift of a clearer head. That is what Brain Force is all about, a proprietary “nootropic” that aims at keeping you sharp and working your brain.
In less time than it takes the average troglodyte to put their pants on, Jones managed to up the ante. Now there is Brain Force Plus, a more potent version of the latter featuring a new ingredient called Black Pepper Fruit Extract which gives it “an added kick,” according to Jones. “Brain Force has been an absolute favorite among thousands of listeners,” he adds. “with hundreds of five-star reviews coming in from certified third-party review sites. Now, with Brain Force PLUS, we have gone the extra level. This is what I take before a hard-hitting show. I absolutely love it, and the crew does too. This stuff is over the top powerful.”
DOES BRAIN FORCE PLUS REALLY WORK?
Despite Jones’ reputation as a rebel and an outsider, someone who rails against the corporatized American culture and elite establishment, Infowars has been quite busy marketing products to its fan base. One looks at their web store and you can see that they peddle as much merchandise as a mainstream pop artist. And their product names are fairly laughable in the way that they target their obvious demographic.
As a fringe personality myself, I tend to cringe at how overt they are at playing to people’s political and paranoia-based weaknesses. I mean, C’mon! Combat One Tactical Bath? Patriot Blend coffee? Really?
I mean, why not Freedom Fries and Revolution Rocky Road Space Ice Cream while you’re at it?
Then, of course, there is Survival Shield, a “nascent iodine” which is supposedly derived from 200 million-year-old salt solutions found more than 7,000 feet below the Earth’s surface. To say that this seems like the swag of quacks is to state the obvious, and that’s to say nothing of the price (a 1-ounce bottle goes for thirty bucks before shipping).
So could all this be worth your while (or your hard-earned money, for that matter)? Does it really stack up to other nootropic blends? Well, let’s take a look at what’s in this shizz.
Each bottle of Brain Force Plus contains the following active ingredients:
- Bacopa Herb Extract
- Yerba Mate Leaf Powder
- Vitamin B12
- Black Pepper Fruit Extract
Okay, so more than half of these ingredients appear in tons of other nootropic blends out there. People can buy Alpha-GPC in Canada, people buy Alpha-GPC in America. It’s nothing new. And L-Theanine is something that can be found in most supermarkets or drugstores the world over.
Alpha-GPC, Bacopa Herb, Phosphatidylserine and L-Theanine are fairly familiar to virtually all natural warriors exploring this site. Many of you probably take them already. But the interesting thing to note here is the presence of Yerba Mate Leaf Powder and Black Pepper Fruit Extract, two more obscure herbs that don’t often appear on the front line of the nootropic movement.
Alpha-GPC is a natural choline compound which increases acetylcholine in the brain and improves learning and memory formation. It has been in use for years in the treatment of stroke, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Bodybuilders and those afflicted with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) have also used Alpha-GPC to great results.
Bacopa Herb Extract is a natural brain booster from the wetlands of India, Australia and South America that has been implemented as a healing medicine since the 6th century. It, too, has efficacy in the areas of memory and learning processes.
Phosphatidylserine is a phospholipid that possesses vital amino acids and fatty acids. This one does it all! It aids in cell repair, heartbeat coordination, hormone secretion (in the adrenal glands), testicular function and bone matrix formation in addition to its potent cognitive effects on memory and more.
L-Theanine is a constituent of green tea that naturally alleviates stress and induces a state of calm without the sluggishness associated with other stress relief formulas. It is an immunological aid and has positive effects on the cardiovascular system.
Most everybody should already know the benefits of Vitamin B12 use; it’s one of those things that no one should be without. Oddly enough, despite its widespread reputation, it is one of the most common deficiencies among humans. B12 improves mood, increases energy levels, ameliorates memory problems, and protects the heart, skin, hair and digestive system. And that’s not all! Vitamin B12 combats a variety of fatigue syndromes and safeguards the metabolism. It has been shown to help those afflicted with depression and stress as well. This one is integral to the CNS (Central Nervous System) and should be part of any person’s daily regimen.
Which brings us to the new kids on the block. Yerba Mate Leaf Powder. Well, if nothing else, the Pope seems to enjoy Yerba Mate Leaf Powder. And after some cursory research, it is clear why he’d like it. Yerba Mate Leaf Powder is not only a natural mental stimulant and a potent energy enhancer, it is also a nutritional orgy of sorts—Yerba Mate contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, C and E along with calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, sodium, sulfur and zinc! I mean, this is a cornucopia of goodness! Selenium alone is a powerful antioxidant and it has substantial benefits as an anti-inflammatory and heart protective agent that can increase blood flow and diminish free radical-related stress.
Finally, Black Pepper Fruit Extract helps in the absorption of other supplements and is thought to be beneficial to those with joint pain and fatigue. An organic energy enhancer, otherwise known as Bioperine, Black Pepper Fruit Extract has become increasingly popular among bodybuilders for its effects on muscle fibers.
So there you have it! While Infowars’ marketing schemes may be thinly-veiled attempts at pandering to gullible people in tin foil hats, their product—at least this one—is rock solid. The ingredients contained within Brain Force are effective and have been for many, many years.
As with all supplements reviewed here, we strongly advise our readers to conduct their own independent research on nootropic blends before taking this product. Remember, as I’m sure Alex Jones would tell you himself, we live in a world full of two kinds of people—the ruthless and the rubes. In order to avoid becoming the latter, you should always take pains to be as on the ball as the former. Be safe, be smart and emancipate your mind.
Caveat: We have not looked into the mg amounts of each ingredient contained within Brain Force, therefore we do not know if Brain Force Plus contains an adequate amount of each compound. The recommended dosage is unclear as no mention of it is made on the Infowars website nor on their Amazon page.
