Highly recommended!

Posted by iHerb Customer on August 30 2010 | Verified Purchase

I ordered this based on the recommendations by Julia Ross in her "Mood Cure" book. After reading it I realized that I exhibit many of the symptoms therein, brought on by many years of intense stress due to severe marital problems. Prolonged stress takes a heavy toll on the mind and body that isn't easy recovered from without some help. I wasn't interested in the kind of "help" that the typical doctor would recommend. Thankfully, there are natural approaches, like the amino acids in True Focus, which are balanced to, among other things, rejuvenate adrenal function. My adrenals had been under so much stress for so many years that they just weren't functioning right anymore. This meant that I had gotten to the point of not being able to cope with even relatively minor stress anymore. I also had no energy at all, which was especially pronounced in the morning. I compensated with coffee which, according to Julia Ross, is the worst possible remedy (caffeine is terrible for healthy brain chemistry). I've tried giving up coffee before, but was never successful. With a couple True Focus first thing upon arising, and then a couple more mid-morning, I have energy now that I haven't experienced in twenty years! My mood is vastly improved. I can cope with stress now. I'm no longer dragging and fatigued (no need for an afternoon nap). True Focus has made a huge improvement in the quality of my life. Highly recommended.

Thanks for your feedback!

Worked wonders! Now Foods True Focus, Natrol Memory Complex, and Natrol 5-HTP turned depression into joy. No more prison of sadness, despair, and fear. I was taking 200mg of 5-htp per day (in 2 doses) and that was a wonder drug. But this stuff made it far better.

Provides a noticeable difference in alertness. You feel sharper, concentrated, and dare I say, motivated! Don't take it too long after lunch unless you're planning an all-nighter. And always a pleasure to deal with Iherb.

Thanks for your feedback!

Amazing, really!

WOW! What an incredible product! I take one capsule upon waking with water and at least 20 minutes before eating and I'm energized, without being too stimulated, and ready to start the day! If I need a natural lift in the early afternoon, I'll take one capsule, away from food, and I really notice a nice natural mood and energy life. Great for combating stress and allowing me to get everything I need to get done in a day. Try it!

Effective but not for daily use, for me.

I used these for a few weeks as a l-tyrosine supplement. I noticed moments of feeling spaced out after the few weeks that weren't typical for me. I noticed that there is ginkgo in this and that might be the result. I have never enjoyed too much ginkgo in my diet, it gives me an emotionally distant feeling, I call it ice brain. Anyways, I switched back to Jarrow Formulas N-Acetyl Tyrosine and I feel great! I have noticed that herbs like ginkgo and ginseng start to make me feel weird if I have a daily dose for longer than a few weeks straight. I now just occasionally will take True Focus, maybe once a week instead of the basic Tyrosine and it works great like that! I wouldn't recommend these for daily use, (I wish they left the ginkgo out) but highly recommend them if you are going into a stressful time where you need focus. Hope this helped.

Best way to naturally lift catecholamines, energy and cut down on coffee

Posted by Theo-- on June 25 2014 | Verified Purchase

I have been struggling with low energy levels and grumpy mood for the past few months. I was trying to find something natural and side-effect free, so after many hours of searching I came across the True Focus formula (and then I also read about it in Julia Ross' book "The Mood Cure"). In the beginning I was a bit suspicious but I decided to give it a try. I am glad I did! The combination of L-Tyrosine and L-Phenylalanine, in conjunction with the other ingredients of the formula is really working for me: a) low-energy levels in the morning have gone, b) I rarely feel sleepy now in the afternoon (and if I do it is when I have overeaten), c) I have complete mental clarity, d) much better concentration, e) I am in the mood of trying new things and meet new people. PLUS I now do not feel the urge to drink coffee, which for me is something unbelievable. All my friends know that I drink A LOT of coffee. There are months during a year when I drink 4 or 5 double espressos, instant coffee, filtered coffee, you name it... Since I started taking True Focus, I do not feel the need to drink coffee to lift my energy levels (I only do when I am out with friends). My dosage is: 1 cap in the morning empty stomach (to start the day), 1 cap 2 hours after lunch (to fight afternoon low energy levels) Since I wanted to have a full neurotransmitter build up I also take Natrol's 5-HTP Time-Realease 100 mg (1 in the morning, I have no problem sleeping!), Solgar's V2000 multivit (I will also try True Balance and Nature's Way, Alive! Whole Food Energizer) and L-Glutamine (2000 mg per day). In my next order I am thinking to add PharmaGABA, D-Phenylalanine and Omega-3.

I've been using it for more than a month now

Posted by iHerb Customer on January 24 2009 | Verified Purchase

Great stuff! I have noticed an approved ability to concentrate as well as motivation to get things done. My energy levels have increased. I have CFS, so this is very important to me. I'm usually pretty groggy in the morning, but after taking this product, I gradually wake up and I'm raring to go. Highly recommended for concentration and energy. iHerb is great to deal with also. I'm an old timer, I've seen some changes, but they have always provided excellent service.

Thanks for your feedback!

Good mind focus product

Just started taking this product, I believe im now smarter than a 5th grader.

Thanks for your feedback!

smells terrible!

Posted by iHerb Customer on February 21 2012 | Verified Purchase

I'm offering one star only based on the smell of this product. It really is the rankest smelling product I've ever encountered...makes valerian almost smell good After handing the capsules, my fingers have an aged urine smell that I, of course, must immediately remove. Don't bring this stuff on trips--it will gross other people out.

Thanks for your feedback!
