Specially formulated all-day clean energy
Warning: Last items in stock!
Neurodrive® has been one of our most popular products for over 6 years. We've spent the last 18 months researching and gathering feedback from customers on an improved formulation, and with back-and-forth testing and tweaking, we're thrilled to finally announce the release of Neurodrive® 2.0!
Neurodrive® 2.0 pushes the boundaries of nootropic energy and now delivers consistent, all-day energy with a substantially improved ingredient and tolerance profile.
With the addition of some truly innovative ingredients, Neurodrive® 2.0 now provides up to 12 hours of energy and focus, delivered consistently throughout the day.
Neurodrive® 2.0 has a truly efficient and carefully designed ingredient profile. We've tested and tweaked the formula over and over, gathering data and feedback from our customers throughout the entire formulation process. Hundreds of people have trialed our new formulation before we released it so that we could be certain that it provides the most consistent and favorable effects for as many users as possible.
The first thing you may notice is that, unlike most other nootropic energy products on the market, we haven't simply loaded Neurodrive® 2.0 with high doses of caffeine in order to mask the perceived effects of the rest of the ingredients. Caffeine is consistently overused in formulations because it provides a very noticeable stimulating effect, especially at higher doses. However, when the dosage exceeds what one would typically consume, there are some common and unpleasant side-effects associated with caffeine - namely jitters, followed by a crash in energy and an increase in anxiety.
The way you overcome the unwanted side-effects from caffeine is to lower the dose to a more tolerable level and pair it with L-Theanine, which helps blunt the jitters. Simply adding L-Theanine to an already high dose of caffeine will not produce the same type of results, because caffeine can still elevate heart rate and cause anxiousness in higher doses. This is why the caffeine and theanine combination has proven to be so popular in a modest 1:2 ratio, and is widely dosed at 100mg and 200mg respectively.
So, in order to further optimize the effects of caffeine, we incorporated an innovative caffeine alkaloid known as theacrine, in the form of TeaCrine®. Developed by Compound Solutions, Inc., TeaCrine® is strongly supported by clinical trials and offers a fantastic synergy with caffeine.
To recreate the results demonstrated in the research trials supporting TeaCrine's effects, a dose of 125mg is required in addition to at least 150mg of caffeine. These results include improved performance in choice reaction time, improved alertness and information processing, improved physical endurance, and improved sustained focus, when compared with caffeine alone.
Not only do we include the full 125mg dose in Neurodrive® 2.0, but we also take it a step further.
TeaCrine® has an active life of around 12 hours. In order to sustain the caffeine and theacrine synergy as long as possible, we've incorporated caffeine anhydrous in addition to guarana extract.
The reason for this is that regular caffeine peaks at around 45 minutes in effect in the body, tapering off a few hours later.
Guarana is not readily water soluble, and this appears to contribute to its longer-lasting effects when compared with caffeine anhydrous, especially based on feedback we've received from the original Neurodrive® blend.
This led us to the following ratios of caffeine and theacrine:
Pure caffeine: 100mg from caffeine anhydrous
Natural Guarana: ~84mg from Guarana extract (400mg at 22% caffeine content)
Theacrine: 125mg from TeaCrine®
We found this combination has been nothing short of remarkable in terms of delivering sustained energy throughout the day, especially when we included a healthy 300mg dose of our highly-praised L-Theanine.
Additionally, theacrine and caffeine activate dopamine receptors in the brain when taken in combination. Dopamine is the neurotransmitter associated with mood and motivation. We take advantage of this with the addition of N-acetyl-L-Tyrosine (NALT) and Citicoline due to their effects on dopamine and dopamine receptor concentrations, respectively.
NALT is a water-soluble form of L-Tyrosine, so it requires a smaller dose to achieve the same effects, and it has a strong synergy with caffeine.
Citicoline is a effective form of choline and a precursor to acetylcholine. When combined with caffeine, it's been shown to further promote concentration, working memory, and sustained attention.¹
Finally, EGCG from green tea extract works in synergy with caffeine and L-theanine to improve brain function, and individually it's been shown to reduce fatigue and assist with relaxation. The polyphenols in green tea extract are also neuroprotective.²
Citicoline is an acetylcholine precursor, which one of the primary neurotransmitters released by motor neurons of the nervous system in order to activate muscles.
Citicoline exhibits neuroprotective properties and assists in the transport of dopamine in the body.
Because citicoline is made up of choline and cytidine, it converts to uridine in the body, which directly affects dopamine receptor levels.

Theacrine (as TeaCrine®)
TeaCrine® is a patented and researched form of theacrine, which is a non-habit-forming caffeine alkaloid that provides a source of long-lasting, clean energy and focus. TeaCrine® is a strong example of a patented compound that offers clear advantages over generic theacrine available on the market.
Only TeaCrine® has a validated reference standard and assay method proving that TeaCrine is pure theacrine. TeaCrine® is also the first and only theacrine that has scaled up to mass production in a GMP-certified factory, guaranteeing a high degree of purity.
Finally, TeaCrine® has an established research program and provides long-term safety data in both humans and animals.

Caffeine is one of the most widely consumed and researched compounds on the planet.
While caffeine isn't strictly just a nootropic ingredient, the nootropic benefits and positive effects on mood and energy in people are well documented and established due to the widespread consumption of this compound.
Caffeine anhydrous is a pure source of caffeine, that, when combined with TeaCrine®, has been shown through studies to promote endurance, energy, focus, and reaction time, when compared with either placebo or caffeine alone.
Supports memory and processing speed*
L-tyrosine is an amino acid that is often taken for fat loss and exercise performance, due to being a precursor to dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine.
NALT is an acetylated form of L-Tyrosine, which means it is better absorbed due to being water-soluble. It also means that a lower dose can be utilized, and it's a true no-brainer ingredient for a product with such ambitious goals.
While there is an ongoing debate of whether or not NALT is more effective than L-Tyrosine, the often cited research is not only substantially outdated (by 25 or more years), but the methods of administration in those studies don't assess the effects of NALT when consumed orally. Instead, they only assess parenteral (intravenous) administration.³
We love NALT. The effects are apparent at a lower dose, and thousands of our customers agree, which is why we specifically chose this particular form for Neurodrive® 2.0.
Finally, there is a strong synergistic effect between NALT and caffeine. Something we haven't been able to recreate by using regular L-Tyrosine, even at higher dosages.

L-Theanine is vastly abundant in one of the most consumed drinks in the world - black tea. That's contrary to the popular belief that green tea is a source rich in theanine, as it is right at the bottom of the spectrum in terms of L-Theanine content.
L-Theanine is an amino acid that has exploded in popularity in the supplement market due to it's safe and effective profile.
Theanine is proven to be calming and it also blunts the negative effects associated with caffeine.

Well designed supplement.
Hands down, this is an extremely well designed activating blend that gives long lasting stimulation without a crash - just like advertised. The Caffeine anhydrous is dosed high enough to give a quick energy burst complimented by the sustained caffeine activity via Guarana extract. Incorporating Teacrine, although making the blend a bit more expensive, rounds off the whole and truly makes it long-lasting due to its rather long half-life. Really enjoy this one, almost too often... although I definitely notice that I tend to not build tolerance to it as much as I do compared to when only consuming caffeine, also a big plus of theacrine. Hopefully there will be another version of this one containing Methylliberine (Dynamine) too. I guess its just a matter of cost...

On the ball!
I chose a sample pack of 3 capsules (full dose) of this Neurodrive® 2.0 and I've just taken them. I left aside my usual TeaCrine + Zynamite + caffeine dose. Good job I did that, these bad boys are STRONG! I've been putting off doing a full grocery shop since Christmas. I'm about to get ready and on my way to the store ASAP! One thing I feel I must add is that for me, 3 caps is just too much. I'd take 2 max, or maybe just one next time and go from there. So I recommend taking it steady at first with these. It will also depend on how much caffeine you are used to using on a daily basis. If you drink 3-4 cups of freshly ground coffees every morning before you leave for work then you will no doubt tolerate the full dose and the added Dynamine will give you an added edge! If you are after some truly powerful get-up-and-go then these are what you want!

A winning formula for body and mind alike
I fully agree with the other reviewers describing the effect as smooth, focused, long lasting energy which does not interfere with sleep. A single serving is all I need on working days; this keeps overall caffeine consumption low while still giving a good mental boost that lasts all day long. On training days, I add an extra 100mg caffeine which has consistently proven to give me the best 7 am iron sessions beating harsher stims/PWOs hands down with no post-workout crash as an added bonus. I love how it also provides me with my daily serving of citicoline which, together with Bacopa and fish oil, has become a non-negotiable brain health supplement for me as a 44-year old. After running through 3 bottles in as many months, I've thus now placed an order for 6 more. Hopefully the ever-looming Brexit will not conspire to put a premium on this and all the other excellent Mind Nutrition products for us inside the EU... any plans on resurrecting the EU store which now looks rather empty?
