Imagine a supplement that helped you feel a bit more free from the anxiety of going out in public or speaking. Something that helped you become more comfortably social.
Because that’s exactly what The Socialite was intended to do. This supplement by Noowave is the latest spin on cognitive enhancing supplements known as nootropics. But first, a bit of background:
Introverts and Extroverts
When it comes to being out in extremely crowded social situations, people fall into one of two camps:
- The extrovert, a.k.a. “the life of the party.” These individuals thrive in crowds and feel completely at home whether surrounded by their closest friends or in the middle of a group of complete strangers. Extroverts “recharge their batteries” when with other people.
— or —
- The introvert, a.k.a. “the quiet person in the background.” Introverts may not “despise” being around a giant group of people, but they certainly don’t live for the experience. Introverts tend to get worn out after being around large groups of people, and as such, they “recharge their batteries” when alone.
Now, being one or the other isn’t a bad thing in its own right, but complications can arise when introverts are drawn into large gatherings by either a friend or significant other. Here, the extrovert thrives, while the introvert tends to shy away, feel anxious or shut down.
And on the other hand, some extroverts still underperform or find themselves over-excited when in public.
But what if it was possible to combat these seemingly awkward situations with a little help of some well formulated nootropics that mitigate anxiety and turn the one time introvert into a more “open” and “engaging” person in public?
That’s exactly the aim of The Socialite by NooWave Co. It’s a revolutionary product that uses a cutting edge mixture of common ingredients to increase an introvert’s energy, and reduce anxiety all in one easy to take serving.

The Socialite Ingredients
The Socialite is a truly revolutionary product that combines several everyday nootropic in efficacious dosages, to help give introverts of all shapes and sizes the added “clean” energy and reduction in anxiety to feel at home in a group of 5 people or 50!.
Aniracetam is a nootropic (i.e. “smart drug”) belonging to the racetam family of compounds. Typically, nootropics are used for the cognitive or neuroprotective benefits. Aniracetam does have those[1,2], but more than anything, it’s included here for its anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) benefits.
Aniracetam offers a natural, non-prescription way to combat anxiety that doesn’t pose the same nasty effects like the pharmaceuticals typically prescribed for anxiety, such as benzodiazepines (ex. Valium, Xanax, and Klonopin), but in a far milder manner. However, one meta-analysis on benzodiazepines found “that long-term use of benzodiazepines was associated with moderate to large adverse effects on all areas of cognition,” whereas aniracetam actually supports cognition!!
Sure the introverts out there could use some anxiety reduction in social situation, but not at the cost of long term brain function! Aniracetam provides a side effect free method for improving social outings.
It’s important to note that the anxiolytic properties of aniracetam are not the primary property – it’s first and foremost a focus enhancer. However, this effect is definitely felt by a good deal of users.
We consider the feeling a smidge more “care-free”, but still driven – which is quite unlike other supplements and drugs that reduce anxiety. Aniracetam is a very cool compound.
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (500mg)
Another powerful, yet extremely common nootropic, is N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine, often abbreviated as NALT. N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is an enhanced version of the amino acid L-Tyrosine to offers better bioavailability, and thus a smaller dose can elicit the same benefits as a larger dose of standard L-Tyrosine.
Much like aniracetam, NALT is often used for its focus-boosting properties, but it also shines in the area of stress and anxiety reduction[5,6,7], thanks in large part to NALT’s ability to counteract the norepinephrine-depleting effects of acute stress.
Phenylethylamine HCl (250mg)
Phenylethylamine (PEA) is a biogenic amine found in the brain that stimulates a strong, albeit short, flood of catecholamines including dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline. Supplementing with PEA yields an invigorating “feel good” sensation.[8,9]
Even though its fast acting, the enhanced mood will be extra motivation for introverts need to get out and enjoy themselves a bit more from time to time. Even if it’s just for going the the grocery store.
Later on, we’ll note another ingredient, hordenine, which will keep the PEA compounds from breaking down as quickly and help this effect last longer.
Citicoline, a.ka. CDP-Choline, is yet another nootropic that’s most commonly used for its cognitive benefits. Citicoline is one of our top two forms of choline, Alpha GPC being the other, due to its incredibly high bioavailability in the body.
In addition to its focus-boosting properties, choline has also been investigated for its role in combatting anxiety and depression. One recent study involving over 5,000 people found that supplementing with choline was able to ameliorate signs of anxiety. However, it was not successful in reversing symptoms of depression. Nevertheless, citicoline is yet another all-natural compound that can enhance your chances of “finding your fit” inside a crowd.
Another reason why you want choline here? Supplements in the racetam family can sometimes yield headaches. Additional choline prevents that from happening. Note that aniracetam is also one of the racetams that gives the least amount of headaches from our experience. Additional support will come from the next ingredient:
DMAE is an analog of choline that prevents cognitive decline by preventing the buildup of the “age pigment” in the brain. Similar to choline supplements, like Citicoline above, DMAE increases production of acetylcholine, a.k.a. “the learning neurotransmitter.”
DMAE isn’t one of our favorite nootropic agents, as we’ve found better success with others, but having it as a nice “co-player” is fine with us.
Eria Jarensis Extract (150mg)
Eria Jarensis is one of the popular new “kids” in 2015/2016’s class of stimulants. We’ve seen it in several pre workouts and fat burners, but not a dedicated nootropics-centered product. However, it fits perfectly into The Socialite’s purpose, as Eria Jarensis contains a number of PEA-based ingredients: N-methyl-PEA, N,N-dimethyl-PEA, and the most important of all N-phenethyl dimethylamine.
Eria Jarensis has become quite incredibly popular for the significantly strong “euphoric” feeling it gives users. Eria is similar to PEA is this regard, but its effects last much longer than regular PEA typically does (about 5-10 minutes). We’re still waiting for some additional research on this new compound, but based off initial feedback from the community it gives loads of energy and feels really good!
Interestingly, one of our other favorite eria jarensis based products also combined it with regular PEA. There’s something to be said about the two-PEA combo here, and NooWave was on it with The Socialite.
Hordenine HCl (60mg)
Extracted from Citrus Aurantium (a.k.a. bitter orange), Hordenine is a powerful beta-2 agonist that’s very similar to synephrine and octopamine, which are also found in bitter orange.
Beta-2 agonists primarily known for two specific purposes. One, they increase energy expenditure, which assists weight loss, but more importantly, they also act as noradrenaline reuptake modulators.[13,14] FYI, a noradrenaline reuptake modulator is a compound that helps noradrenaline stays active longer in the body, leading to greater focus, energy, and alertness.
More than any other reason though, Hordenine is great to use alongside PEA type ingredients, as Hordenine has been shown to prolong the mood-elevating effects of PEA, due to its role as MAO inhibitor. The MAO enzyme breaks our PEA ingredients down quickly, but when mildly inhibited by hordenine, the euphoria and dopamine boost from PEA will stick around longer.
Note, however, that due to these ingredients, you must never mix The Socialite with prescription drugs!
Vinpocetine 99% (10mg)
We’re back to the world of nootropics with vinpocetine. Much like all the other focus enhancers so far, vinpocetine is first and foremost a cognitive booster. Vinpocetine enhances brain function by increases vasodilation and blood flow to the brain, which helps improve short term memory and overall cognitive function.
Vinpocetine has been seen less and less around the market lately, as other nootropics like Alpha GPC and Huperzine have gotten the star treatment as of late.
BioPerine® is the incredibly popular black pepper extract used in all kinds of supplements to enhance the bioavailability of the active ingredients in dietary supplements as well as improve the body’s absorption of them. It’s pretty hard these days to encounter a supplement that doesn’t include this “backup singer” ingredient, as it’s incredibly useful.
Huperzine A 1% (200mcg)
Lastly, we have one of the most well known smart drugs on the street today in Huperzine A. As opposed to Citicoline or DMAE which directly increase acetylcholine levels in the body, Huperzine indirectly boosts levels of this neurotransmitter. Follow along as we explain…
See, Huperzine prolongs the life of circulating acetylcholine in the body by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme responsible for the degradation of acetylcholine. This action indirectly increases amounts of acetylcholine by preventing its premature breakdown.
Additionally, Huperzine also supports overall cognitive health as it defends the brain against the “neuron death molecule” glutamine, and possibly helps create new brain cells thereby making it “neurogenerative”.
Very cool product here, no doubt, and we’re glad we stumbled onto it. We might need to start covering more of these kinds of supplements!
Consume 4 capsules on an empty stomach with a fish oil supplement, or with food when added confidence, reduced anxiety, increased verbal fluidity, and elevated mood are required. Allow 45-60 minutes for full effects to take place. Do not consume more than 4 capsules in a 24 hour period.
OR, an Alternate Dosing Protocol given by Noowave:
For a more subtle and prolonged experience, consume 2 capsules in the morning, then another 2 capsules in the afternoon.

If you want a fully dosed nootropic with stimulants but not catered towards the “social” side of things, see their flagship product, the NooWave High Performer!
We’ve seen these ingredients before, but we’ve never seen them packaged together and marketed in this manner. The effects of aniracetam are not world-changing, but they’re definitely noticeable to most, and those with mild cases of “I don’t wanna go out in public and deal with people” can certainly be put to the test with The Socialite.
It may seem ironic, but we live in a time when engaging with others is more important than ever. The increasing use of technology in the workplace, as well as social media, has placed a premium on interactions not only locally, but globally as well. It’s hugely important to make a solid impression when finally venturing out into public, especially in business situations. Knowing this can make life rather difficult for the typical introvert at times.
However, with The Socialite, introverts around the world now have the ammunition they need to meet the crowd head on and feel right at home with even the most exuberant of folks.
