No, we have not observed or heard any reports of dependency issues resulting from NeurON, NeurOFF or any of our other performance products. However, NeurON v1.1 does contain caffeine just like coffee so the stimulating effects of NeurON v1.1 can feel comparable.

Can I take NeurON v1.1 everyday?

What makes the Amino Matrix V2.5 superior to other amino acid products currently available in the market?
Optimum EFX Amino Matrix V2.5 sets a new standard for essential amino acid blends with the inclusion of sodium R- alpha lipoic acid and the optimal amount of L-Tryptophan. It is a pharmaceutical grade high dose essential amino acid blend fortified with extra branched chain amino acids and other strength enhancing ancillary nutrients. Unlike most amino acid blends, Amino Matrix V2.5 uses a unique method which finely mills the ingredients to ensure an optimum delivery system for quick and maximum absorption. It contains NO fillers and is free of common allergens such as Dairy, Corn, Soy, Gluten and other grains.
What is different about REVITAPRO from other protein powders I can buy at a health food store?
A big difference between REVITAPRO and other protein powder products is that REVITAPRO is made with pure micro-filtered whey protein isolates instead of the commonly found and less potent whey protein concentrates. REVITAPRO is an extremely high quality, highly available and digestive-friendly whey protein isolate product that contains NO whey protein concentrates. The whey protein isolates found in REVITAPRO are superior for post-workout recovery. Additionally, it’s enhanced with prebiotics and digestive enzymes to reduce bloating and increase absorption. Our REVITAPRO is also aspartame free and tastes great!
What are the benefits of the BioEnhanced Sodium R-ALA and CherryPure Tart Cherry Extract used in the Amino Matrix V2.5 formula?
BioEnhanced sodium R-ALA has been scientifically proven to be the most bioavailable alpha lipoic acid available in the world today. In a human trial, it was shown to help people achieve blood concentrations of lipoic acid 40 times higher than those who took unstabilized R-ALA. Na-R-ALA (sodium r-alpha lipoic acid) also promotes the muscle’s uptake of glycogen and accomplishes this by optimizing insulin activity and increasing glucose tolerance, thereby increasing the rate and amount of nutrients shuttled to the muscles during pre or post-workout. The inclusion CherryPure Tart Cherry Extract provides the unmatched value inherent in cherries, which are known to contain significant levels of antioxidant flavonoids, known as anthocyanins. The proprietary processing technology results in a completely natural product that contains NO artificial fillers, flavors, colors or additives. CherryPure Tart Cherry Extract is the purest, most nutritious and finest quality cherry extract available.
What do you mean when you say that REVITAPRO has a natural balance of whey protein fractions?
Whey protein isolates contain purified natural fractions of whey protein such as Lactoferrin, Immunoglobulins (IgG1, IgG2, IgA and IgM), Glycomacropeptide and Lactoperoxidase. Lactoferrin delivers many benefits because it’s an iron-binding protein that appears to increase iron absorption and transport. Glycomacropeptide has anti-microbial capabilities and Immunoglobulins may neutralize toxins and viruses. Lactoperoxidase is a secretory enzyme that acts as a natural microbial agent and can inhibit bacterial growth.
