After another week and more research, I just wanted to update you on a few things that I’ve learned and experienced.
First of all, my review is still positive. As I said, the effects are subtle but they are there. A full two weeks is required in order to experience the full effect. That and taking the correct dosage.
One thing I’ve noted is how much better I sleep at night and how rested I feel in the morning. I wasn’t expecting that, but apparently it is one of the benefits of taking NuroFocus.
By the way, getting a better quality sleep each night can do wonders for your ADHD symptoms all by itself. We ADDers aren’t known for being able to fall asleep easily or wake up easily and we are often restless when we do sleep. A better night’s sleep is definitely a good thing for us.
The other thing that I found out about NuroFocus has to do with the way the ingredients are extracted. NuAxon’s process is the Gold Standard when it comes to extracting the beneficial elements of plants and herbs while preserving their integrity.
It’s a little complicated but I will try and explain it as best as I can. The following is courtesy of Jason Edwards at NuAxon.
…if you use hot
water to make tea you will concentrate the compounds that dissolve
easily in water. If you were using a solvent like hexane (dry cleaning
solvent) you would pull out only the oil soluble compounds. If you
were having Tibetan hot butter tea you would be getting a double
extract of the water soluble and the fat or oil soluble compounds.
Make sense so far?
Traditional extraction pulls out only the compounds that are compatible with that solvent. Water gives you only water soluble ones; oils give you oil soluble ones.
Now to continue:
Supercritical extraction takes CO2 (the gas we exhale and that trees
use to create oxygen) and puts it under extreme pressure while keeping
it at room temperature. Under these conditions CO2 becomes a liquid
that will dissolve fats and oils. When this CO2 liquid is pushed
through the plant material it pulls out the fats and oils, then when
the pressure is removed the CO2 becomes a gas again and bubbles out of
the extract. This gives us a super pure, super potent (200 pounds of
raw rosemary becomes one pound of extract) extract in a way that is
gentle on the plants and the environment.
If I understand this correctly, NuAxon uses a method that not only pulls out the compounds needed but does so in the gentlest way possible for both plant and environment. The result is a super pure, super potent compound.
This sounds like something that is good for our bodies and good for the environment too.
