Advanced.GG wouldn’t have bothered releasing a second version of their main product had they not been confident it would be superior to the initial version!

What’s different? The key driver has been revealed, and it’s nooLVL™, a patented ingredient from the bright minds at Nutrition 21, one of the world’s leading ingredient developers. nooLVL™ is itself an advancement of a well-known cognitive booster, engineered to deliver a higher level of results.

This ingredient is also the first cognitive booster explicitly tested on gamers, where it passed with flying colors. If gaming is your thing, nooLVL™ is something you’ll like want in your arsenal come game-time. Even if you don’t play video games, if your work or hobbies call for enhanced reaction time, processing speed, and energy, this novel ingredient can be beneficial!

What is nooLVL™?

Nitrosigine Arginine Inositol Silicate

A further iteration of one of the industry’s most popular compounds, nooLVL™ is an advanced version of their powerhouse nitric oxide boosting ingredient, Nitrosigine®. This is comprised of bonded arginine silicate with inositol, but in the case of nooLVL™, there’s even more inositol! This provides improved blood flow to the brain, and then delivers a powerful nutrient that helps it work better.

Let’s dive a bit deeper into each component:

  • Arginine silicate

    If you’re at all familiar with supplements, you’ve likely heard of L-arginine before. This amino acid was one of the industry’s first “nitric oxide pump”-inducing ingredients, showing the ability to increase blood flow via increased nitric oxide (NO) production.[1] Given that the body breaks arginine down into nitric oxide directly,[2] it helps encourage improved blood flow, which led athletes and weightlifters to use it to improve performance and get the much-heralded muscle “pump” when training.

    However, we quickly learned that plain L-arginine was not the best advocate for enhanced NO synthase, as it unfortunately holds poor bioavailability in isolation. We needed something better, it just didn’t work well enough on its own since it got broken down too quickly. However, science has shown that bonding it to silica (making arginine silicate) and combining it with inositol can significantly increase NO production and energy levels.[3] This tandem makes for an effective hit of blood flow, focus, and energy, bioavailability be damned!

    Nitrosigine

    Nitrosigine is what we always wanted L-arginine to be. It took the innovative researchers at Nutrition 21 to make it a reality. Now that we have the blood flow, can we use it to deliver more focus?

    So Nutrition 21 developed this ingredient as Nitrosigine®, and it became the arginine that we had always wanted – one that clinically improved blood flow, nitric oxide levels, and workouts like L-arginine had been theorized decades ago.

    Blood flow is great for athletes, but now it’s time to make it better for the e-athletes:

  • Inositol – a higher dose than usual!

    Inositol is a sugar that the body relies on to facilitate a number of functions. From maintaining cell membranes to promoting neurotransmitter activity,[4,5] inositol is a vital part of everyday life, though it often goes unnoticed.

    Inositol

    Inositol is a beautiful carbocyclic sugar that is abundant in brain, and amongst other tasks, it mediates cell signal transduction in response to a variety of neurotransmitters. Image courtesy Wikimedia.

    Research has begun to show just how influential this sugar can be, however, specifically in regards to mental health. Multiple studies have found high correlations between things such as depression and low levels of inositol in the brain, suggesting that this sugar is key for neurotransmitter activation.[6] Furthermore, inositol supplementation has shown the ability to balance brain-based chemical production, improving levels of key neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin.[5] This brain-boosting sugar has quite the effect on your cognition.

    What’s special here is that nooLVL™ uses more inositol than the athletically-minded arginine silicate inositol blend in Nitrosogine®! This enables it to have more of a cognitive effect, making it all the more relevant in the world of gaming.

    This ingredient delivers some powerful brain-boosting NO-powered blood flow, the exact type of thing necessary to enhance brain power a bit! Luckily, the benefits yielded by this NO boost have been researched, notably in professional gamers.

The first clinical cognitive-boosting gaming ingredient!

There are many cognitive-enhancing ingredients and stimulants – some safer and more legal than others. However, once nooLVL™ is both of those, and was researched specifically on gamers!

nooLVL Research 1: TMT-A Time

In research published in October 2019, the cognitive effects of the new ingredient, nooLVL™, was tested in eSport athletes. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 60 subjects were randomly assigned to two groups – one was administered 1600g of nooLVL™ daily for seven days, with the other group receiving a placebo.[7]

In order to test the ingredient’s effects, multiple tests were conducted – Trail Making Test A and B (TMT-A,B), Stroop Test, Profile of Mood States (POMS), and ultimately, video game performance – in real games that matter in 2019.

In the TMT-A,B tests, the test group performed significantly better after just 15 minutes of supplementation and 60 minutes of gaming, completing the tests faster and with less errors.[7] A similar faster completion speed was found in the Stroop Test as well, with the POMS test unveiling higher scores of self-reported energy in the nooLVL™ group.[7]

The study found that both groups improved in video game performance, with no significant differences identified between the two. That being said, the cognitive effects are impressive, with nooLVL™ displaying its potential in this study.

The Stroop test is a neurocognitive test where subjects must read aloud the color of the text that is printed rather than the actual text! It evaluates selective attention, response inhibition, and reaction time. Fewer errors are better!

It’s also worth noting that the games tested were amongst today’s most popular, including Fortnite, Call of Duty, and Madden. Although these effects should translate to most video games, if you’re serious about online play in any of the games from this study, nooLVL™ has already shown to promote better play!

Focus V2’s other ingredients – what else can we expect?

Before its winter 2019 release, Advanced.GG has provided a few more inklings regarding this formula:

  • Lutein, a crucial nutrient for eye health – incredibly important for long bouts of gaming!
  • A high-quality source of choline in Alpha-GPC paired with acetylcholine protector Huperzine A.
  • A natural source of caffeine (100mg per scoop). Note that the clinically-tested dose of nooLVL™ at 1600mg comes at two scoops, which would get you a “standard” 200mg caffeine.
  • L-Theanine, at half the dose of caffeine, which is also synergistic for nootropic effects. This helps take the “edge” off of the caffeine.
  • Full antioxidant complex for overall health – this includes Vitamin C and several B-Vitamins, but also astaxanthin and panax ginseng.

That’s just a taste of what Focus V2 will be, but already we can see how it shapes up to other products gamers rely on. This formula is much more than the typical energy drinks or energy powders wrongly tagged as “supplements”. Focus V2 is a true supplement, designed specifically for gamers. Not much else out there can say that!

Conclusion – reach another level thanks to Focus V2 and nooLVL™

Gamers or not, our brains (and bodies) are ready.

Video games originally came to us as a form of recreation – an entertaining way to spend time as kids or a way for adults to destress after long days at school or at work. Their origin is not all that much different from popular sports such as baseball – the first baseball players played for fun, only to later realize they could compete and monetize their talents. Following a similar trajectory, recreational gaming has led to eSports – competitive gaming filled with e-athletes looking for ways to improve their abilities in order to find more success.

nooLVL Advanced Focus V2

Focus V2 will be the first, but it certainly won’t be the last. We’re ready for the onslaught!
