Supplement Spotlight: Weyland: Focus – Focus Support Supplement with Vitamins, Minerals, Herbs and Nootropics



Our goal was to create a multifaceted and comprehensive focus supplement. Weyland: Focus combines brains supportive nutrients, nootropics, and herbal sources of energy.

The human brain uses 20% of the body's energy, and so requires a range of brain supportive nutrients to support its health and function. Examples in Focus include: Coq10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Magnesium, NADH, and Huperzine A 1%

Focus combines a variety of well-known Nootropics because we believe utilizing a variety of Nootropics in unison results in a more effective solution than taking any single Nootropic alone. This belief results from our research, which suggests different Nootropics support different Neurotransmitters.





About the company:

Here at Weyland, brain health and nutrition is our business. In fact, it’s fair to say that in pursuit of developing market leading, brain health-supporting products, our commitment to excellence has turned into somewhat of an obsession.

Our founding team’s enthusiasm for brain health, nutrition and performance drives our business forward. Having poured over reams of information in the field, we felt the market was lacking a nutrition company that gives brain health and nutrition the due care and attention that it deserves.

And that’s how Weyland Brain Nutrition was born. Read More

New music streaming service hacks your brain to make you a better employee

A new startup, focus@will, claims to have found the secret to music actually making you productive instead of distracting you.

Music is one of the great work day companions. Whether doing homework, blogging, or staring at a spreadsheet all day, we listen to music to fill that otherwise sonically-vacant space with something pleasing enough to inspire us to get some work done. One problem: It doesn’t actually make us any more productive. A new startup, focus@will, is trying to change that by introducing a streaming music service that encourages productivity instead of active listening.

Focus@will was designed with getting work done in mind, the culmination of two years of research and music curation that encourages concentration in lieu of distraction. According to CEO Will Henshall, the effect is creating a system for music not to be listened to.

“The idea of commercial music is that you listen to it,” Henshall said. “[But] this is not music for entertainment. This is something new. We’re creating a music service that specifically helps focus.”

To accomplish this, focus@will conducted studies on their patrons — work Henshall jokingly describes as, “sticking brain machines on people and seeing what happens.” What they found was that music interacts with the limbic system, the evolutionary center of the brain that controls the flight-or-fight response. In this case, the limbic system interrupts the concentration flow state in a typical productivity cycle.

The researchers found that instrument music — mainly jazz and classical music for the time  being — are particularly effective at quieting the flight-or-fight response. However, the team also discovered that instruments like the tenor saxophone and viola create similar interrupt responses in the brain because they resemble the human voice’s unique timbre. Complicating matters, instrumental music the subject already knows triggers a memory response that was also disruptive.

To counteract this, focus@will curate their own exclusive library of focus-friendly music while also commissioning and remixing the work of commercial artists to help build their system. Songs are then analyzed in their specially-designed cloud audio engine, which weighs the key, intensity, and emotional value of each track, arranging them in a way that’s both unfamiliar to the listener’s ear and soothes the limbic system so as to prevent an interruptive signal.

Henshall, a former member of British-based R&B group Londonbeat (unfamiliar? You must click here then), believes that the service, which is currently in private beta, will complement current music platforms.

Introducing Vitamin Water Attention With Caffeine To Support Mental Focus

VitaminWater‘s all new caffeine-packed attention flavor boasts 87mg of caffeine to “help support mental focus.” While the new flavor is not exactly a brand name of medication used to treat bouts of ADHD, Adderrall is definitely the first term that came to mind when we were informed about Glacéau’s latest VitaminWater flavor.

The bottle’s label has some cute quips and questions that transport us back to our college days of smuggling baggies of “focus pills” into the dormitories and chasing them down our gullets with gallons of coffee. Here’s what the front label reads…of course in all lower case, true to the vitaminwater branding:

why do we check e-mail and one minute later re-check it? why do we look at our cellphone for no reason? it didn’t ring or vibrate. well, while you’re doing all that, why not try this drink. each 20 fl oz bottle has 87mg of caffeine to help support mental focus. now you can try focusing on the things that you actually want to focus on like, why the heck did she unfriend me?

It’s not very fair to use vitaminwater: attention in the same sentence as Adderrall. In fact, it’s so different in actual content that it’s just a giggly reference we made because of how suggestive we feel their branding around it is. One read through the of the above quote by any caffeine-nursing college student should raise some funky, nostalgic eyebrows that remind them of that kid down the hall currently ramped on Addies…trying to cure the same symptoms that VitaminWater poses in their latest product description.

We’ve yet to taste or experience the new flavor, and according to our foodie friend Andy who’s been on the new drink for over a month, the fuji apple-watermelon flavored  drink definitely stands its own in the flavor department.

Each bottle of the new VitaminWater Attention has 120 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 milligrams of sodium, 32 grams of carbohydrates and 32 grams of sugar. Apparently glucose, of which each bottle has 15 grams of, can help with cognitive performance.

This new Attention flavor is a pretty bold move, considering the brand already has a pink-hued Kiwi Strawberry-flavored ‘focus‘ variety. ‘Focus’ is advertised to be fortified with vitamin A and ginkgo biloba for mental relaxation. I guess VitaminWater is just looking to cover the gamut of subtle human ailments with tasty beverages.

Will you be trying the new Attention flavor? Have you already tried it? Has it helped with your studying/focus/attention at all? Speak on it in the comments below!
