Caffeine-free Nootropic Blend Suggestions - Reduce Brain Fog & Optimize

I'm looking to try a blend. I've been dealing with a little bit of brain fog probably due to mild anxiety after my lay off 6 weeks ago.

Overall, I'm in great health and shape at 43 years old. Work out 5 days a week and stick to a good schedule. Never drink except socially on occasional weekends.

I am in the process of starting a blog and book and am struggling to stay focused. My counselor/therapist believes it's due to mild and anxiety. I'm not big into pharma drugs, so I want to try something else.

Also, I take 200mg of caffeine pills 6 days a week and usually get a mild crash but intensified brain fog on those days at 3pm. I also occasionally take rosea rhodiloa, and b-complex and 2000mg of Vit C 4-5 days week. I'm interested in trying a blend like Onnit's Alpha Brain, Mind Lab Pro, and I've tried Nootropmix Max with good success in the past, but I'm looking for a blend that does not have caffeine.

Cheers!

I would recommend caffeine free Focus XT from SNS - it's great for what you're describing.

Clear Edge from Evomuse is also great - but I don't think it's available anywhere.

Interested in making your own or just something pre-made?

Pre-made I think it is tough to beat SNS Focus XT. It covers pretty much all the Nootropic bases (ALCAR, Choline sources, Tyrosine, Hup-A, even has Taurine, etc.). Makes it super convenient too. Wish it had more flavors for the Caff free, but Fruit Punch isn't bad.

Morphogen Nutrition Morphobrain is a beast of a formula to. Huge Zynamite dosage and pretty heavy on the Mucuna dosage as well.

I do think if you are newer to these things the Focus XT is a better starter. I LOVE Morphobrain, but it is a bit different compared to the more conventional Focus XT.

I know you mentioned taking Rhodiola already and it isn't necessarily billed as a Nootropic formula, but SNS Stress and Anxiety may be worth looking into. Rhodiola, Sensoril, Theanine, and Bacopa all exert some Nootropic benefits + anxiety relief as well.

Thanks guys. I'll look at stim-free Focus XT and then also SNS Stress and Anxiety. Appreciate your feedback. Cheers.

Looks like a good formula. ...Whats with all the talk on Reddit about Lion's Mane causing lower libido? I read a lot of that last week while researching LM.
I'd be careful with reddit's "ideas" sometimes. Things get parroted and turned into big issues, when it can literally be a few users repeating the same thing, then people noceboing themselves into believing it (it happens on here too, no internet forum is immune).

There are no studies to even draw conclusions about even potential issues here. The study I've seen posted on there wasn't even on Lions Mane. I've seen some try to claim since some mushrooms potentially lower DHT (which even for those it is debatable based on the studies) that it is a reason Lions Mane does too, even though it isn't some universal all mushrooms lower DHT occurrence (some raise it).

That isn't to say that it is impossible that this could be a side effect, I have my doubts, I've never experienced it (and I take more than I think most people on here use), you must always remember ingredients are probably not going to have only positive effects (must keep net benefits in mind), and that it is hard to even qualify what some people mean when they say "libido" (on the internet it is like this super vague term that can mean so many different things).

Sorry a little all over, just worked out and my mind is racing, so hope that makes sense!
