Genius Consciousness is another product from Genius Brand and is my second review of their products. Earlier in December reviewed Genius Joy as a success.
This company has a great reputation because they do good research into what to put in their formula and the quality of what they put into their formula. Everything needs to work together and they are able to achieve this.
With Genius Consciousness they offer a pretty potent nootropic stack with a unique range of quality and researched ‘brain boosters’. This stack uses biohack technology to give us enhanced mental performance. It is a blend of Cholinergic brain boosters and dopaminergic brain boosters along with another powerful natural nootropic Lion’s Mane.
Genius Consciousness is a powder you mix into a drink. There are no pills or capsules, you drink it. Once ingesting the formula you will enjoy effects like improved concentration, enhanced working memory, and overall brain health support.
Just how good or bad a nootropic stack is always comes down to their ingredients used. Are they the proper ingredients for what they want? Are there better ones? Do they use the best form of the ingredient in their formula? Do they provide the optimal dose of each of their ingredients? What type of side effects do the ingredients have?
These are the questions we should ask when choosing or as I am, reviewing a product like this. So let’s do it.
Ingredients of Genius Consciousness
If you look up ALCAR anywhere you will find that as far as nootropics are concerned, this amino acid’s real function is to enhance our Acetylcholine system. Memory and learning are closely associated with acetylcholine and Acetyl-L-carnitine is a precursor of acetylcholine. Now you can see that Acetyl-L-carnitine improves and enhances the Brain function of those suffering from cognitive decline especially in the elderly.
ALCAR is also an antioxidant and it will play a big part in preventing damage by free radicals and repairing the damage done by free radicals.. It will reduce cell death that is caused by excite toxicity and helps our brains get rid of toxins.
It can also have a positive effect on our mood. There have been both animal  and human  studies done on the effect of ALCAR on mood. Both studies on human and animals showed a significant improvement after taking ALCAR.
Lion’s Mane is an important nootropic in natural neuroregeneration, potentially increasing NGF levels for increased neuron growth and repair.
Lion’s Mane improves brain function, but it may also help decrease the anxious symptoms associated with anxiety and also depression. Initial studies are showing that it may do so by upregulating neurogenesis in the hippocampus of mice. The hippocampus is the area of the brain that is thought to be responsible for regulating emotional responses and memory. (4)
Alpha-GPC (as AlphaSize®)
AlphaSize is a premium Alpha-GPC brand. Having a high choline concentration, alpha-GPC seems to increase the brain’s stock of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine the “learning neurotransmitter”, potentially improving memory, learning, and focus. AlphaSize® is a quality alpha-GPC brand.
One of the two top forms of choline on the market, Alpha-GPC (short for Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline) is popular because it’s highly bioavailable and many users can “feel” it working.
If you increase the amount of choline available to your brain, you will have an easier time with learning and remembering new things, as well as a variety of other brain health benefits that can improve your life as a whole.
With regard to attention, if you combine Alpha GPC with coffee or caffeine supplements, it increases reaction times and attention levels while under stress.
L-Tyrosine has been studied plenty and for many years and has shown It can significantly boost our cognition while we are under stressful conditions. It basically offsets the expected deficits caused by environmental stress situations in the working memory and processing of information.
There is research that says taking L-tyrosine as a supplement can increase our energy, boost our mood, enhance cognition, and increase our motivation. Because we don’t need this amino acid in extra amounts when at a normal healthy state, it is more beneficial when we are under either physical or environmental stress.
L-tyrosine boosts our working memory as tasks become increasingly more challenging. This is likely because the level of stress is amped up where L-tyrosine works.
In a study on adult volunteers engaged in a mental task that gets progressively challenging found the ones taking the tyrosine did much better on the more difficult levels, but not on the easier levels. 
Methyliberine (as Dynamine®)
Dynamine is Methylliberine. It is a purine found in the Kucha tea leaf and its molecular structure is much like theacrine. Just like Theacrine, Methyliberine can increase our energy, focus, and our mood by activating the dopamine receptors, inhibiting adenosine receptors and do all of this and not increase our heart rate or elevate our blood pressure.
Dynamine increases our level of mental alertness that we experience, in addition to increased energy. Dynamine operates like Caffeine, resulting in a sharper brain that’s better able to focus on the task at hand.
Many people say they experience a boost in their mood after taking Dynamine. Because it inhibits dopamine reuptake. This sometimes creates a feeling of euphoria in the body, which can leave people feeling happy and content. People who take Dynamine often experience a boosted mood, which can last for hours after it has been taken.
Caffeine (from Coffea arabica)
We know just how much research has been done on caffeine so we know that the 100mg does in Genius Consciousness is pretty low. In fact, it is not much more than a small cup of coffee. In this formula, caffeine doesn’t appear to be for performance because of this dose, but maybe just for a little alertness maybe.
SerinAid® (50% Phosphatidylserine)
Phosphatidylserine or PS for short is a natural substance that is found in brain cell membranes. It is important for cognitive performance and neurogenesis, but unfortunately, begin to decrease as we begin to grow older. If we can restore a more healthy level of PS we can enhance our cognitive performance, enhance our mood, improve our memory retention, and slow cognitive ageing.
NeuroFactor™ (Coffea arabica [Fruit] Extract)
This ingredient has been clinically proven to significantly increase the levels of a key neuroprotein (BDNF) or Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor which is absolutely vital to learning, memory, and higher thinking.
NeuroFactor™ is an all-natural, patented extract of whole fruit from the Coffea arabica plant.
It also contains a unique mix of polyphenols that have been shown in studies to stimulate the production of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, which is key in our overall brain health. BDNF has been shown it plays a critical role in neuronal development, maintenance, repair, and protection against neurodegeneration.
AstraGin™ (Panax notoginseng Extract and Astragalus membranaceus Extract)
AstraGin® is the patented combination of Panax ginseng and Astragalus membranaceus from NuLivScience that’s used to increase amino uptake 
This is a patented combination of ginseng and astragalus. It is supposed to increase amino absorption. What that means is that it enhances the bioavailability of the amino nootropics in this stack.
I can’t say too much more about this.
Huperzia Serrata Extract (1% Huperzine A)
Huperzine A increases our levels of acetylcholine, therefore it improves our memory. Studies show that it significantly inhibits acetylcholinesterase production. Acetylcholinesterase is an enzyme which breaks down acetylcholine. By inhibiting this enzyme Huperzine A plays a big part in raising the levels of acetylcholine in our brains and of course, that enhances our cognition and our memory.
Cycling Genius Consciousness
This is a big one because of the use of Huperzine A. We know that it raises the levels of acetylcholine in our brains as I have said just above. What happens as a result is we steadily build up the level o=f acetylcholine in our brains every time we consume it. Too much of this neurotransmitter can affect us in some negative ways we don’t want such as:
- Muscle cramps
- lack of motivation
- lack of focus
- Bad or low mood
We need a way to stop this increase in acetylcholine and in this case, means taking time off from your Huperzine A. This break will allow the production of acetylcholinesterase to continue for enough time to balance the neurotransmitters once again. This isn’t permanent at all, just take a week off for every three weeks on.
This is normal with nootropics and for reasons such as this.
Who Uses Genius Consciousness?
I have and I have used it prior to going to my Crossfit gym on occasion. I have asked people I know who are in university if they or anyone they know use it. Apparently, it is pretty popular there.
If you are into athletics and are a serious gym person you would be one to use it as well.
- Genius Consciousness contains high quality and with properly measured ingredients,
- Genius Consciousness is reasonably priced.
- Is Alcar needed? It may not offer much. Just my opinion.
- It is really stimulant-heavy and I’m not so much of a fan of stimulants like the ones here. My opinion again.
To Wrap it Up
There are a number of different ingredients in this one, and more stimulants than I really like, but I don’t even drink caffeinated coffee so you are probably not like me.
The ingredients are high quality with good doses of each. Yes, a thought went into creating this stack and it has garnered quite a few thousand good reviews throughout the internet.
I think I will get it again and see how I can use it for more than I did before. I expect that it will be beneficial for me and for you too.
