In need of some quick focus to get a helter-skelter office cleaned, organized, and up to par in super-record time, I decided to put to the test: Excelerol.
Excelerol isn’t a Nootropic Drink, however, in the spirit of optimizing memory, focus, and enhanced mental speed, I thought, what the heck.
Pouring a glass of ice water – to simulate the Nootropic Drink experience, I set up shop at my desk, downed the blister packed pill. The cylindrical pill looked like a space pod out of a Science Fiction novel sporting both black writing and otherworldly coloring, I bring the pill up to ingest, the faintest scent of peppermint is apparent. Swallowing it, I am reminded of VICKS chest rub, and a similar sensation follows.
I decided to wait a few minutes and play some Dual-N-Back task via Brain Workshop to give the Nootropic time to take effect. 20 minutes later, the onset of focus begins.
Let’s get started.
I glance around me at the clutter, the stacks of unorganized paper, books randomly scattered on various surfaces, garbage not thrown away.
Slowly, but surely, my mind awakens… Its a lighter focus than truBrain, but it there, in the background.
Glancing at the box, I take a recap of what is in this thing:
- Vitamin B 12, Niacin (as Niacinamide)
- Guarana Extract
- Kola Nut Extract
- Acetyl L-Carnitine
- Bacopa Monnieri Extract
- Peppermint Oil
- Tulsi (Holy Basil) Extract
- Green Tea Extract
- Gingko Biloba Extract
- Rhodiola Extract
- White Tea Extract
- Black Tea Extract
- Alpha Glycerylphosphorylcholine
- Huperzine A Extract
Note, Gingko, Vinpocetine, and Huperzine A, as well as Citicoline. These are pleasant surprises in the Nootropic blend as I know the level of focus and clarity that these specific ingredients have generated for me in the past.
I look around the room and again, and not to my surprise, the mess is still there.
The kick of Excelerol is very gradual- this seems more like a long term focus solution than an instant boost. None the less, I decide to play some Limitless songs- Happy Pills soundtrack from the movie in the background to give some ambiance to the blitz organization task.
At first I am able to quickly make some decisions, sorting books into their proper location, removing items that do not belong and sorting all cluttered surfaces in the room. I segregate all papers and bills into one category but notice how quickly I fall into the trap of reading the papers –
SPECIAL NOTE: organizing and cleaning requires lazer focus, distraction is the enemy of productivity. This is where Excelerol comes in.
My focus was now reaching a threshold and setting the timer, I was able to blaze through without faltering concentration the entire room in under 40 minutes.
Within this time span, all loose paper and files were sorted into the filing cabinet, miscellaneous trinkets were put-away, surfaces were dusted, floor vacuumed, and documents that were destined for the waste bin were discarded.
And… now nearly 1.5 hours later, my room is cleared, organized, and the focus is still strong.
Overall, for a long, consistent focused state, Excelerol performs as promised. I would give this product a 4 out of 5 star. Although my focus has been improved and room cleaned, my decision making and creativity did not see significant speed increases as -racetam’s give, I did maintain a productive state of focus that allowed me to get organized rather quickly and back to my other work.
