Gungho for Brain Focus/Health Supplement – Review Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Hi friends, I am in love with this Product I just sampled called GungHo, a real scientific breakthrough (in my humble opinion) of Brain Health, Focus, and recall. As I read up on GungHo, preparing for my samples to arrive, I was very impressed with all the studies and the work of the PHD’s on developing a safer, more effective and actually long term brain health of this product.

But we all know “the proof is in the pudding”

Hai. (that's Ninja for hello) on the cardboard cover from GungHo ("For Ninja Like Focus")

My 3 sample packets of GungHo arrived safe and sound to my home, it is packaged in the most brilliant folded cardboard, full of great information and some good laughs too. Speaking of laughs, who ever heard of a Focus Supplement that gave you energy and yet improved your mood? I hadn’t until I was introduced to GungHo and for me this statement by the company is true! Alas I am rambling again… lets get back on topic here. Lol

Yes, as many of you know from past reviews, I have ADD and sure enough I show it often in my struggle to write reviews and if my ADD is acting up terribly, my dyslexia comes out more as well, making writing a real chore. Add in my CFS (Chronic Fatique Syndrome), Fibromyalgia (which often creates something called “Fibro-Fog”) and you have yourself a but you folks are kind enough to bear with me. Now on with the show… lol

My Packets of Gungho

My GungHo Challenge:

1. Avoid energy drinks / shots or sodas for 3 days (so you don’t crash from them)
2. When you are tired, take a GungHoR instead – convenient tiny liquid packet can take with you anywhere
3. You will note a smooth boost of energy & focus with no jitters or crash

“* Over time, GungHoR will also build brain health, capacity to focus and memory recall…but you won’t notice that in 3 days”

The above is a qoute from GungHo on the Challenge I accepted

The Challenge, how I got started:

We ran out of soda in the house and coffee for a while (we shop once a month with our disability checks, so this happens from time to time) and it was the perfect time to take the challenge! So no caffeine, sodas or energy drinks… just water on hand for a week. I went 3 days with just water, then I did a 2 day test (I gave my husband one to try too)… okay so I cheated on my challenge, by sharing… however my Mommy taught me to share and it has stuck with me. lol

I did start getting a headache for the first day without soda or caffeine… but it soon went away with some generic Aleve that I had on hand.

My thoughts on Gungho:

I have run out of my GungHo and I am saddened by this, as it really did help me stay focused on the tasks at hand here, I can get so distracted by the Boob-Tube (which is almost always on here, since my husband has become disabled recently, so he’s home all the time)… and of course the demand of the blog, the keeping up with social media, emails and my 2 cuddly dogs demanding attention. The GungHo has helped me focus on one thing at a time and I just have to say, you need to try this to believe it!

On GungHo I am relaxed, yet more focused, I am energized but not shaky and I feel a sort of sense of wellness… a satisfied feeling that I cannot describe as anything else other than a cheerful disposition. Amazing the balance that has been achieved in this formulation and how completely they covered all the bases of this unique product, I’ve never experienced this before like I did with GungHo.

As I mentioned before, I shared one of the packets with my husband, he felt a little difference but being a man of few words he didn’t tell me much more than energized some and a feeling of the focus some as well.

Now the long term effects that are mentioned by GungHo, are brain health building… this is with longer term/daily use of GungHo and I would be tempted to keep a stash on hand for daily use, had I had the means to do so… with my very limited trial I am pleased!

Gungho Real Brain Science Information

Who would I recommend this product for?

Mothers, we know how draining just being a Mother can be!

Students, oh yes, as I always recommend with studying, take it as you study and then make sure to take it as you do your testing (the studies have all shown you must be in the same state as when you were studying for better recall when you are testing or public speaking for that matter).

Gamers, as some of you know, until I started blogging, I was an avid gamer since the 1990’s, and I really could have used this when my group would be in highly dangerous game areas and I was stuck spamming out heals constantly. Yes I always played the supporting role of a healer, it’s hard work, but really beneficial to most power gamers out there.

And those that have trying work/jobs, be it physical, mental or that have demonstrations or public speaking involved etc.

I would have loved this while working as a Cosmetologist and during memorizing lines and preforming in plays.

Now one of you can take the GungHo Challange for yourself, enter to win your own 3 pack sample of GungHo

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Excelerol, The Brain Health Supplement – Review

Excelerol… Does it work? Here are my thoughts & experiences while I tested out Excelerol for my review.

Excelerol Logo

Hi all, I am pleased to share with you my experience with Excelerol, a Supplement for your brain. I have to say I was so very excited to have been chosen for this opportunity to review the product. Excelerol is made to help with your concentration, alertness as well as memory and focus.

The ingredients in Excelerol are in 100% vegetarian capsules. The Extracts are standardized, high potency and have botanical sources of caffeine in them. Some of the ingredients would be instantly recognizable to those who have taken anything natural for energy and some are new to me here are a few of the ingredients found in the capsules:Green, black and white tea, Guarana & Kola Nut, Ginko Biloba, L-Tyrosine and Rhodiala… just to name a few. All good points for anyone wishing to test out a product.

I wanted to try this product because I have ADD and my attention is easily taken away from tasks at hand. I think that at times this is worse with us women, we tend to multitask and as a result of being a woman with ADD I tend to get up for a glass of water and end up doing several things at once that I see along my way and go back, sit down and then reach for the glass of water that is not there. lol Yes it’s frustrating! Now I don’t/didn’t expect miracles, but I was in great hopes of help.

Mariah's Package of ExcelerolWhen the Excelerol arrived at my home, I received a box of 30 liquid Vcaps and I was very excited to try it, I did wait until the next morning to try it out. Since this product is to help with alertness and I received it in the evening, I didn’t want to risk aggravating my insomnia any more then I had to so I waited to take the Excelerol.

The first thing I noticed when I took my first pill was that I can feel the sensations of there being Peppermint Oil in the supplement, I at first worried about my GERD and whether this would become too strong for the GERD. As time went on I realized it’s not a problem for me at all as it stayed just a soft cooling sensation in the back of my throat. Now most people will more likely not even feel this sensation at all, I believe again that it is due to my GERD.

I find that within about 20 minutes I start feeling more alert and yes, felt like I could think with more clarity. I find that I am also less likely to let my mind wonder with a less need for self discipline, to keep myself on task. When I have taken the Excelerol regularly, I noted too that it helps…the products positive attributes seem magnified as long as I take it regularly. It’s almost as though the Excelerol builds up in the system, seeming to build on it self, and becoming even more affective. I say regularly because I’ve taken some breaks from taking it, due to my flu recently and that is when I noticed that the product wasn’t doing as well. Once again taking it regularly, after the flu was over, I realized I felt it working better once more as it built yup in my system. Out of curiosity, while I was well,  I took a few days off from it as an experiment and sure enough, I can notice the difference, when I only take it one day or two and not keep it in my system. The product still helped me, but not as much as when I took it regularly.

picture of the Excelerol capsules in a long narrow rowWhen I am not taking the Excelerol, I do feel it, I feel my brain is more lazy and I find my mind wondering more again. I also find myself feeling more frustrated while not on it, be it that it’s a struggle to keep my thoughts in line or that it does have an ingredient called Rhodiola Extract which studies have shown to improve mood and alleviate depression as well as enhance mental and physical performance and alleviate fatigue. This later part of the study of the Rhodiola being said, is also something that I think maybe help me out further as having Fibromyalgia and the associated Chronic Fatigue too, which is frustrating and the product did seem to assist me as it helps me to overcome fatigue.

Most of you know by now, I won’t give a good review to a product that I don’t like. This product is simply the best product that I’ve tried for my mind and I’ve tried a few, because of my ADD and the Fibromyalgia which intrude upon my concintration. Along with helping me concentrate the ingredients have helped (even further then I had thought it would) me with its gentle help with energy. The mixture in Excelerol seems multifaceted with its approach to helping the mind and I am impressed. I would recommend this to anyone looking for clearer thought, alertness, energy etc.

I think that this would be a wonderful study help for those in school or giving an important presentation etc.

I imagine that it is best that you take the Excelerol BOTH While Studying and White Taking your Test. The reason for my theory? I have read about studies that were done with coffee and studying and they found your mental acuity is best when you are in the same place mentally (or would that be chemically?) as you were while you studied. In this study it said that they saw a dramatic increase in absorption of the subject matter. So it only makes sense, to me, that you would treat Excelerol as you would treat Caffiene (while studying and testing) for your best results in mental acuity, comprehension and retention. This, as always, is just my thoughts and opinions… it may or may now work this way for you.

In Conclusion:

I’ve have found that Excelerol works for me. Excelerol actually helped me in more ways than I had initially though it would, helping me mentally, emotionaly and with some gentle energy too! I really love Excelerol and what it has done for me, thank you Excelerol for giving me the opportunity to let me review your product. If you are wondering about this product, I would recommend you pick up a 30 day supply and give it a go, I don’t think you’d be disappointed… You can purchase these supplements on Amazon.com. Now I’ve run out of the product, as of the writing of this review and I really wish I had more… time to invest in Excelerol or wait and find myself yet another review for them! lol

I hope that this helps some of you out, I know it helped me.
