FOCUS | CLARITY | ALERTNESS
Military Go Pills are legendary. They’re the alertness and performance superchargers famously used by combat aviators flying missions around the clock.
The legend lives on—and it’s gotten an upgrade—in the new GO-PILLS™ by Military Nootropics. Both safety and nutritional efficacy are vastly improved. Instead of risky prescription meds, the new GO-PILLS™ capitalize on an optimized formulation of 8 naturally-occurring and clinically-verified nootropic NeuroChargers™.
A non-prescription "smart drug" that rapidly crosses the blood-brain barrier and supports the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, Alpha-GPC has been shown to boost rapid "learning and memory." It's also used by athletes to amplify power output and "increase endurance performance."
This is our proprietary blend of Leucine + Tyrosine. The BCAA Leucine is perhaps the most important regulator and precursor of glutamate, a key neurotransmitter that's "essential for proper brain function," especially "fast signaling and information processing." Tyrosine is the precursor to the all-important neurotransmitter dopamine, which regulates memory, motivation, and learning. The Australian Department of Defence’s Science & Technology Division reports that "Tyrosine or caffeine could be used... in a military context to enhance cognitive performance,” boosting both “attention” and “vigilance.”
This super amino acid has been clinically shown to enhance alpha brain wave activity, improving concentration and test-taking ability. It boosts creativity, helps generate "a state of wakeful relaxation," and enhances "higher learning via the ability to ignore distracting information during complex tasks."
Packed with powerful compounds known as bacosides, the Bacopa Monnieri plant has been used for ages in Ayurvedic medicine to boost cognitive function and reduce stress. And modern double-blind, placebo-controlled trials confirm that "Bacopa significantly improved speed of visual information processing, learning rate, memory consolidation, and decreased anxiety.”
Panax Ginseng 5%
The U.S. military's Consortium for Health and Military Performance confirms that “some of the latest research has shown improvements in brain health, specifically as related to performance on attention and memory-related tasks up to 6 hours after a single use of 200-400 mg of Panax ginseng.” Clinicians recommend ginseng with at least 4% active ginsenosides. GO-PILLS™ have 5%.
We don't cite any clinical data that has ethical conflicts. Some groups (a focus supplement whose initials are FF, for example) cite clinical tests that they paid for. It's not evil. It's just a conflict. We have an approach that we call "antiseptic data." It's where we cite clinical evidence that we have no stake in and didn't pay for. It's clean, and there are no ethical conflicts.
Creatine is the popular amino acid used for muscle growth. It's also a powerful cognitive booster, because it works to generate the equivalent of fuel for your brain, in a way that's been shown to have "a significant positive effect on both working memory and intelligence." GO-PILLS™ use a specific, trademarked dose of the "most effective" and most bioavailable form, CrM.
The world's favorite natural psychoactive (and one of its safest), caffeine lessens reaction time and measurably boosts alertness. We include the optimized amount, per military research, designed to work synergistically with Theanine.
An extra level of efficacy.
A great product starts with key ingredients. But beyond that, what's important is optimizing the combination of ingredients. Certain nootropics can enhance the efficacy of each other. We call our version of it CombiGenics. Here's a good example: when taken together, Theanine and Caffeine "seem to have a synergistic action in decreasing mind wandering," while also boosting reaction time, memory, and focus ("decreasing deviation of neural resources to distractors"). Theanine also reduces the likelihood of jitters from caffeine.
Military Nootropics™ is the brainchild of two Harvard-grad brothers who were the US Army’s official R&D partner in performance nutrition. While working with the Army labs, it was our mission to:
A) focus on optimizing human performance,
B) improve the quality and safety of military food items, and
C) take cool photos in black suits.
The products we designed (like Soldier Fuel) are used by some of the world’s most elite military units. (They're also used by the The Gray Man).
Now, in our new venture, we’re spearheading the initiative to calibrate and formulate healthy supplements that use cutting-edge research to drive next-gen Augmented Cognition.
And right out of the gate, we're ensuring that civilians have access to it, too.
We're different from other Nutripreneurs (yeah, we like coining words). We don't believe in the hard sell. Some guys push too hard. We only want you to buy our product if you believe in it, and if it makes sense intuitively, not because of some gazillion-dollar marketing campaign.
We're also different in that we're fully transparent about our philosophy, which is: Balance Is Key.
We're both public-school kids who got academic scholarships to Harvard, so we know the value of hard work, merit, and putting time in. There is no single miracle cure. Or miracle pill. For peak mental fitness, you need to do your part to foster mental agility. Read. Do math. Engage in challenging debate. Try something new that's difficult. Exercise in the morning (which, by the way, "acutely improves cognition" throughout the day, according to university studies).
And then, coupled with that, we also believe in using clinically-supported nutritional supplements. Mother Nature makes some amazing stuff. So why the hell wouldn't you capitalize on optimized combos of her treasures? That's why we use GO-PILLS™ ourselves, and reap the benefits. Want proof? Watch this: 12 x 13 = 156. See. That was easy.
Barely took us five seconds to calculate it in our heads.
Math + GO-PILLS™ = Balance.
"Combinations of nootropic compounds, both natural and synthetic, have been shown to rebalance and optimize neurochemistry for improved brain and nervous system function and efficiency. These have the potential for raising alertness and attention; speeding up reaction times; enhancing endurance and mental resilience; reducing apprehension and fear; and improving group dynamics and coordination. Recovery aspects include the treatment of depression, PTSD, memory loss, and dementia."
