Brain Enhancing Properties

LL was engineered to improve cognitive performance in humans, upgrade memory, processing, focus, speed and brain functions in general. With its main component, Noopept, a nootropic that has doubtful brain enhancing properties, the product also claims to increase energy levels, improve sleep quality, and enhance the immunity. LL made by a company called Avanse Nutraceuticals. According to the producer, the supplement boosts memory, enhances focus and concentration, optimizes mental performance, reduces mental fatigue and anxiety, increases the level of creativity. The manufacturer gives a great number of promises but whether they are true we will find out further in this review. The product has its own official website which is not very informative, though. Some website pages are devoted to the description of nootropics in general, to positive fake testimonials, to FAQs, to ordering and buying LL. There are two other products made by the company. LL Nova is designed to increase energy, motivation and mood, while LL Luna is about improving sleep and cognitionabilities, reducing weight and enhancing overall health.

The LL website is too dense with information, so it describes the main ingredient in the product very superficially. No scientific research has been conducted on the supplement, so it is difficult to claim that it is completely safe and effective. The official website only claims that the ingredients of the product have been shown to increase focus, bring clarity and enhance productivity, remove distractions, nervousness, heavy feeling or forgetfulness.

As it was already mentioned, Lomonol's formula is notorious for containing the acetylcholine boosting Noopept, a nootropic claimed to aid memory and learning properties. The product Focus Factor has a hybrid formulation coupling both natural and chemical ingredients, some Focus Factor. Thus, it comprises three nootropic blends which have been selected and handpicked from the Ayurvedic system. However, for any supplement to be effective, it has to combine the right components in proper dosages to achieve the goal.

The Memory Blend in the product totals 285mg and contains Noopept. LL uses 15 mg of Noopept (N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester). This ingredient has a high bioavailability and is reported to work fast. In the manufacturer's tests, Noopept proved to relieve stress and promote memory and cognitive health. The manufacturer even mentions that it was used to improve the memory of people with Altzheimer's but there is no evidence supporting this claim. Noopept is said to function through the influence of the AMPA and NMDA brain receptors which are responsible for the production of neurotransmitter acetylcholine.

After I made a thorough research, I found out that LL also contains Ginkgo Biloba which improves blood flow and removes toxins and other wastes from the body. It also increases dopamine production for better mood by blocking MAO production. Unfortunately, it is unknown what dosage of this component is used in the product. Panax Ginseng is another component in the product which works through improving the functioning of 20 glands in the human body. CDP Choline (aka Citicholine) is important for the proper functioning of brain neurotransmitters. It can be received from food (mainly vegetables), but some people may lack it. But how can you know whether you have enough of this compound in your body?

The Focus blend totals 500mg and contains the following ingredients. Acetyl L-Carnitine is used in combination with choline to form acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that participated in mental activity. Phosphatidylserine is a nootropic substance known for its ability to improve focus through enhancing glucose metabolism. It is known that glucose provides the body with energy, thus, the brain as well. L-Tyrosine is also said to increase neurotransmitter production.It also decreases stress but has nothing to do with memory and processing.

The Energy Blend totals 375mg and contains the next ingredients. Hordenine increases dopamine levels by blocking Monoamine Oxidase (MAO). Dopamine is claimed to keep mood and motivation up even though these claims are not medically proven. Guarana is a source of caffeine, thuxs, it has a stimulating effect and can be harmful for people with heart disease and psychological disorders. Picamilon has a property to calm down the nervous system. It is not good to combine stimulating and sedative components in the same product. In Europe, Picamilon is available with a prescription only. Vitamin B12 is claimed to protect the body from neurotoxicity, provide energy, reduce brain fog and fight fatigue. In reality, the action of vitamin B12 is too low to demonstrate any effect. Besides, the manufacturer does not provide information about how much of each ingredient is contained in LL.

The manufacturer does not speak about any adverse reactions or side effects of their product. They only claim that the supplement has no side effects. It makes me think that LL may not be as safe as claimed. Still, I found out a few things to be aware of. First of all, be aware that no supplement can be side effect-free for everyone. Even natural components can be extremely dangerous for people with severe allergic reactions. Secondly, the product may be harmful for patients who are sensitive to the caffeine content. Such people are recommended to start with a half dose or to refuse from taking the supplement at all. Online there are many reviews from real users of and not all of them are positive. Let us have a look at some of them.

"These pills didn't give me any more energy, motivation, focus, enthusiasm, and confidence I was looking for. I have taken LL for more than a month. Waste of money. I cannot recommend it."

"I tried two pills of LL for the first time last week and I have to say I was impressed with the effect at first. I felt as if I have drunk a few cups of coffee at once but in two hours I started suffering from severe jitters. I almost had a heart attack!"

"LL has a flavor of coffee but I didn't like that weird aftertaste in my mouth. Besides, I had a feeling of dry mouth. You need to drink plenty of water. Who knows maybe this staff can cause dehydration."

LL is only available through their official website. One bottle of the product contains 60 capsules (a thirty-day supply) and costs $59,97. You can buy three bottles for $119.97. LL company offers a 90 day money back guarantee but I haven't heard of anyone who would be able to return their money.

LL is not the best brain booster on the modern market, to my mind, as it has many disadvantages. First of all, it's too expensive. Secondly, it cannot be bought neither from the stores nor from retail wesbites. You can find it only on its website. All in all, I can say that LL really works for some people but it usually causes serious side effects. To avoid a dramatical experience, it is better to stay on the safe side and avoid this supplement. I am sure, the market offers safer and more effective products than LL.
