Can nootropics improve your mental performance?



What are nootropics ? And what makes them one of the most popular supplements to improve brain power and mental focus?

Nootropics are smart drugs or natural or synthetic substances that can be taken to improve mental performance, memory and anxiety in healthy people. They have gained popularity in today's highly competitive society and are most often used to boost memory, focus, creativity, intelligence and motivation.

Marcelo Claure became a fan of LYMA from day one. “I work so hard and travel so much, it’s helped me to keep on top of my game.”

The Bolivian-American is a Technology Entrepreneur and serious businessman. He is currently the Chief Executive Officer of SoftBank Group International and Chief Operating Officer of SoftBank Group Corporation and oversees SoftBank's operations and strategy. He also co owns Miami United with David Beckham.

The fact that LYMA has helped Marcelo and numerous other high achievers and business minds is not surprising to us. Because LYMA uses only the highest grade nootropic available, we knew that the effects on our customers would be life changing, increasing energy and productivity along the way.

But why are people thinking of ditching coffee for LYMA instead?

Caffeine itself is not bad, in fact it has numerous benefits for both mind and body but when taken in high doses - too frequently and later on in the day - it can negatively effect people:

  • Disrupts sleep - which can cause a cascade of ill effects and hormonal disturbances. Caffeine works by blocking adenosine receptors in your brain, making you feel less tired
  • Increases anxiety / irritability / aggression and other mental states
  • Reliance & addiction to caffeine can diminish results

The energy drinks of old have a long list of negative side effects like the ones listed above. They are also linked to more serious issues such as hypertension, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems.

There’s a better way.



Our cognizin has the ability to increase focus and attention by increasing the brain's concentration of dopamine and norepinephrine. Similarly, this is how caffeine effects us but it also creates the negative side effects as previously mentioned. The Cognizin in LYMA can illicit a sense of calm and clarity yet still make you feel alert, driven and focussed.

Lyma contains 250 mg of Cognizin, which is adequate to produce similar effects as caffeine but without the stimulant jitters. It’s a crash-free cognitive enrichment alternative to a cup of coffee - or three!

Cognizin, also know as citicoline is a leading edge nootropic. Nootropics are becoming more popular as people are realising their effectiveness and the impact they can have on drive, focus and endurance. Cognizin works by increasing acetylcholine levels in the body and dopamine in the brain, therefore elevating overall mood and productivity.

“Being responsible for other peoples safety is something I take very seriously in my job. I need to be alert, strong, responsive but calm. I need to be my best when things are at their worst... LYMA has added another level to this feeling. It is now part of my life.”
