A few weeks ago, on Instagram, I noticed an account for a product called Neuro-Stack, made by Akua life. The name instantly caught my attention. Neuro-Stack is a Nootropic which some people refer to as smart drugs. Nootropics are supposed to enhance cognitive functions particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, and energy. There are quite a few on the market, but most are just full of caffeine and synthetics with ingredients I cannot even pronounce.
I had been having issues with my memory, cognitive function, and energy due to a diagnosis of Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS), which is classified as a Mild Traumatic brain injury. To a person like myself, the idea of possibly improving my memory, cognitive functions, sleep, anxiety or energy levels would greatly improve my life quality.
At first glance, I thought they were making some bold claims. Claims like, maximize energy, minimize anxiety. enhanced nerve regeneration, increased focus, clarity and more. I thought this is either going to be the greatest thing since sliced bread or another snake oil. However, I slowly found myself impressed when I looked closely at their Ingredient list. They had the ingredients displayed very boldly and proudly, and to my astonishment, they were all natural.
The list started off with all the B vitamins (1,3,5,6, 8,9, 12) and then became more interesting. Ingredients that were less known. But, even a layman such as myself, was familiar with. Ingredients such as Raw Peruvian Cacao, Cats Claw, and Ashwagandha. Ashwagandha is a root that is highly regarded in India for all kinds of ailments, stress (emotional and physical) weakness, rheumatism, constipation, insomnia, nervous conditions, goiter, joint inflammation, parasites, and hormone balance.
Then the list got really interesting when I read Lions Mane Mushrooms, I am not a holistic or ayurvedic expert, so this mushroom was new to me. I immediately went into research mode and was astounded at what I read. Lions Mane is an edible and medicinal mushroom belonging to the tooth fungus group. Native to North America, Europe, and Asia. It’s known for improving brain function, enhancing nerve generation with Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), combating depression, anxiety, and it's both an anti-inflammatory and has antioxidative qualities. I continued to research the other nootropics in this stack and I was thoroughly impressed.
Akua Life was advertising free 4-day samples and I decided to give Neuro-Stack a try. The package could not have arrived at a better time. I received it a couple of days before I had agreed to pet/house sit for a friend. I was to take care of a 115lb dog, 2 senior cats, and a very big house. I had no idea if I would be able to handle such a large responsibility.
I started taking the Neuro-Stack 2 days before my house sitting was to take place. I was feeling pretty good, strong, and confident. I had no idea if the Neuro-Stack was assisting in this new-found confidence or not. The directions said that some people felt the effects after 3-4 days, but that it was recommended to take for 4-6 weeks.
The week started off strong, Saturday and Sunday were hard, but I felt clear-headed, more focused than usual, my memory was doing well, and I enjoyed being with the animals. I definitely had more energy than usual. Then Monday, I started feeling foggy again, and the Neuro Fatigue set in. When I woke up Tuesday morning, I was completely exhausted, I could barely think, I was walking the dog through the trail like a zombie, thankful that I hadn't run into anyone else. because I was still in my PJ's. When I returned back to the house from our walk, I was in tears. As I was sitting on the deck, crying, replaying how everything could be fine one day and not the next, It occurred to me that I had run out of the Neuro-Stack, I only had a 4 day supply. That is when I started thinking, could my recent energy boost have been from the Neuro- Stack? I immediately reached out them and asked if they would be willing to send me more. They were so kind, they shipped me out a full bottle immediately.
Getting through the sitting job was extremely difficult. I slept in between walks and feedings. It took every ounce of energy I had to finish out the week. I had to leave myself a to-do list, so I didn’t forget to take out the trash, bring in mail etc... When I finished the pet/house sitting on Sunday, I could barely drive home, I was a wreck and I fell into my bed immediately. completely done. I was proud of myself for seeing the commitment though, love those animals and was happy I could help, but I was glad it was over.
Monday morning, I peeled myself up and out of bed to get the mail and there it was; a full bottle of Neuro-Stack. I took it immediately and when I say immediately, I mean I was opening the package on my way into the house, kind of immediately. I spent all day Monday in bed, Tuesday, the first thing I did when I woke up was take the Neuro-Stack. I had a terrible migraine, but I had the energy to get things done around the house. Which surprised me, usually a migraine would put me down for days and I would not be able to function. Wednesday my migraine was gone, and I was able to make it to a dentist appointment I had scheduled the week before. When I returned home from my appointment, instead of diving into bed, I found myself with energy, clarity, my neuro fatigue lifted, and I felt like my old self again. I was astounded!
Neuro-Stack did everything that Akua Life said it would do. My memory, focus, energy, and anxiety are all much better than they were. I am not a Dr., but what I know is that when I took it, I felt great, when I stopped taking Neuro-stack, my symptoms returned. I will be sticking with Neuro-Stack. I have told all my friends and family to try Neuro-Stack.
Thank you very much Akua Life,
I am eternally grateful
