Info: 90 Veg. Capsules
As we age or get run down, sometimes we may find we could use a little help in clearing in mind and sharpening our focus to learn new material or concentrate on tasks. True Focus is designed to increase cognitive function by combining some amino acid building blocks of the main 'fuels' the brain uses to carry out its activities with some supportive nutrients, energizers, and antioxidants.
NOW's True Focus supplies L-Tyrosine and L-Phenylalanine, the precursors to Norepinephrine and Dopamine, the key neurotransmitters for maintaining alertness and mental acuity and for feeling at ease, together with Vitamins B-6 and C to facilitate their production, along with complementary ingredients like Ginkgo Biloba and DMAE, to further improve mood and increase attention.
