WHAT IS IT?
Noo Wave Supplement Co., a group who took their name from the very sociable and dilettantish French film movement (New Wave), has put out a nootropic stack called The Socialite. It is a supplement which is marketed as a mood enhancer with the ability to instill confidence. That’s a bold statement for any pill and almost sounds like the plot of its own movie, a movie of the kind you would expect to find Marlon Wayans (see: Senseless) or Eddie Murphy (see: The Nutty Professor) starring in.
So can The Socialite really make your awkward roommate with the uni-brow and the curious hobby of collecting dead insects a suave ladies man? We shall see…
WHAT DOES IT DO?
According to NooWave’s website, The Socialite contains cutting edge ingredients that work synergistically to help “reduce anxiety and increase the confidence levels required in order to command a presence.” They say that it will give the user the charisma, energy and insane ability to “work a room.”
Again, in the words of NooWave themselves, the ingredients that The Socialite is composed of will unlock all of the following benefits:
- Euphoric Mood
- Reduced Anxiety
- Verbal Fluidity
It’s easy for any herbal supplement to carry promises it can’t help to fulfill. When it comes to proprietary blends, the companies responsible for them know that they can get away with almost anything since their warning labels clearly say that the product and the messages related to them have not been approved by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration). As such, they can put pretty much whatever they want on the bottle and the gullible or preoccupied will buy them at face value.
But let’s look at the individual ingredients of The Socialite to see how this stack stacks up compared to more proven supplements like Ciltep, Tru Brain or Alpha Brain.
The following is a comprehensive list of The Socialite’s active ingredients:
Aniracetam is, of course, the more potent drug in the Racetam family. It is a fat-soluble molecule which excites AMPA receptors and possesses anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties. It swiftly crosses the blood-brain barrier and yield better sleep and anxiety relief.
NALT (N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine) is a highly bioavailable compound that is known to improve memory loss, increase mental performance, promote a general sense of well-being and enhance overall cognitive function. It is also a natural stress reliever that sharpens focus and puts one at ease.
PEA (Phenylethylamine) has been called a love drug; a Dopamine precursor, it is said to help improve mood, boost energy and influence weight loss. It is also used as a concentration promoter and focus tool.
Citicoline (CDP-choline) is a very popular supplement which has been extremely beneficial to those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, head trauma, dementia, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and stroke. It is believed to aid in the following areas: memory, logical reasoning, focus and learning.
DMAE is a cognitive enhancer and cholinergic supplement that acts as an anti-aging drug that preserves brain health and increases focus. It preserves memory by boosting acetylcholine and yields enhanced concentration.
Eria Jarensis (N, N-Dimethylphenethylamine) is a popular powder among bodybuilders due to its energy-enhancing elements. A natural fat burner and pre-workout noot, Eria Jarensis is a stimulant and bronchodilator that diminishes anxiety and influences our reward system.
Hordenine HCL is an alkaloid for mood, energy, weight loss and focus. It, too, has been embraced by the bodybuilding community for its capacity as an energy-enhancer.
Vinpocetine is a derivative of the alkaloid present in the Periwinkle plant. It is well-regarded as a cognitive protector and anti-aging agent that increases oxygen use by the brain, improves memory, maintains coagulation of blood, increases energy in the brain and promotes attention and concentration.
A derivative of black pepper, Bioperine is a “bioenhancer” that acts as an antidepressant and an immune suppressant. It has also been shown to inhibit tumor growth.
Huperzine A is a naturally-occurring alkaloid that puts the kibosh on the enzyme which destroys the learning neurotransmitter. It is said to enhance memory and improve blood circulation. Some say that it is a vital focus-booster.
So there you have it—The Socialite’s ingredients appear to work in tandem to do pretty much what they say they will. While I highly doubt that this or any supplement will turn this guy into this guy, it does seem to contain the elements requisite to putting one at ease and making them more attentive to their surroundings.
A serving size of The Socialite is 4 capsules. This is the recommended dose. NooWave suggests that users take it on an empty stomach with a fish oil supplement. Expect to wait forty five to sixty minutes to see effects. Users are likewise admonished against taking more than four capsules in a twenty-four hour period.
Our readers are advised to consult with a physician before taking The Socialite. I mean, it’s a supplement called The Socialite, for Pete’s sake! As always, use with care and be cautious. Those with preexisting health conditions should be especially careful. Be safe, be smart and emancipate your mind.
