Enhance Cognitive Performance With 5%


Nootropics have quickly become one of the hotter new supplement categories. Originally found in pre-workouts, nootropics currently go beyond pre-training supplements. One reason nootropics have become so popular is that many people want maximum mental performance, whether in the gym, at work, or at school. In this article, we’ll look at 5% Nutrition nootropics, define what nootropics are, and list their benefits. We’ll see how easy it is to enhance your cognitive performance with 5%!

What Are Nootropics

Nootropics are ingredients that have been clinically studied and suggested to promote several cognitive benefits. These include improved learning ability, focus, and enhanced memory. They also support cognitive function under distracting conditions and neuroprotectants. Currently, 5% Nutrition offers 2 powerful nootropic formulas: Mentality Nootropic and Core Nootropic

The Mindset Of Rich Piana 

One of Rich’s favorite catchphrases was ‘whatever it takes”. Think about what that really means. When Rich founded 5% Nutrition in 2014, he did so with the attitude that only 5% of people had the right mindset and drive for optimal success. The 5% had the drive and mental commitment to do whatever it took to reach their goals, just like Rich himself. It’s in that spirit that we designed our nootropic formulas. 

How 5% Nootropics Enhance Cognitive Performance

Here’s how 5% nootropics enhance cognitive performance:

Improved Memory

By helping to improve memory recall and speed of recall, you may experience greater productivity in the gym, on the job, or at school.

Increased Energy 

With Mentality Nootropic, there’s a Caffeine Blend (PsychoStim Adder-All-In Energy Burst). Beyond the powerful energy benefits, caffeine also boosts attention, alertness, and focus. No wonder it’s so popular!

Increased Alertness & Focus

5% Nutrition nootropics help increase alertness and focus. This can help you zero into the task at hand, whether it’s at work, school, or the gym.

Improved Mental Performance

Both of our exceptional nootropic formulas reduce mental fatigue. This in turn enhances mental performance. When you perform at your cognitive peak, you can expect to smash any goal you have. 

Enhance Cognitive Performance With 5% Nutrition Nootropic Formulas - Ingredient Profile

Mentality® Nootropic

This is the nootropic powerhouse Rich originally had in mind. No wonder it’s such a legendary formula!

Ingredient Profile

Mind Over Matter Mental Power Blend - 409 mg

The Mind Over Matter Power Blend consist of Panax Ginseng, L-Phenylalanine, TeaCrine Theacrine®, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Ginkgo Biloba, Gotu Kola, L-Theanine, and Toothed Clubmoss (Huperzine A). These 9 ingredients work synergistically to enhance mental performance, elevate focus, improve mood, and ease mental fatigue.(1,2)

PsychoStim Adder-All-In Energy Burst - 310 mg

This extreme blend uses not 1, not 2, but 3 types of Caffeine. Our caffeine sources are InnovaTea® Natural Caffeine, Infinergy™ Dicaffeine Malate, Cocoa, and Guarana. Plus, there’s Theobromine which smoothes out caffeine’s effects. This exclusive blend creates a smooth, no-crash, long-lasting energy effect.

Lucid Focus Neurotransmission Blend - 258 mg

Here’s a focus blend that features Alpha GPC (A-GPC), Choline Bitartrate, and DMAE. Besides 2 sources of choline, DMAE converts into choline in the body. This blend helps you stay focused on the task at hand no matter what your day looks like.(3,4,5)

Vitamin B-12 - 1,250 mcg

Here’s a popular B Vitamin that helps convert food into energy. It also helps control stress. That’s why it’s dosed effectively and included in Mentality.

How To Use

Take 2 capsules once per day. You can take it at the start of your day which makes sense if you want to maximize productivity on the job or at school. You can also take Mentality as part of your pre-workout stack.

Core Nootropic

Here’s a newer formula that, like all Core products, redefines what a Core supplement should look like.

Ingredient Profile

Core Nootropic features 3 ingredients (unheard of in a core-type formula) and full-disclosure labeling. 

Alpha-GPC - 450 mg

This is the primary ingredient in this exceptional product. Alpha GPC is a phospholipid that has a naturally high choline content. Among other benefits, choline helps make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, known as the “learning” neurotransmitter. Plus, acetylcholine helps regulate muscle control. Additional benefits include memory improvement, overall cognitive function, and neuroprotectant properties.(6,7)

Choline Bitartrate - 100 mg

Choline promotes focus, enhances overall cognitive function, and promotes the mind-muscle connection. The ability to zone into the task at hand goes beyond the gym and can improve daily productivity in any situation.(8)

Toothed Clubmoss (Huperzine A) - 100 mg

This ingredient improves focus and indirectly increases levels of acetylcholine by blocking an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase. That’s the enzyme that controls the breakdown of acetylcholine. By inhibiting this enzyme, more acetylcholine is available for cognitive enhancement.(9)

How To Use

Core Nootropic can be used the same way as Mentality, so it makes sense to take them together for optimal cognitive benefits.


It’s clear that nootropics are an exciting supplement category. The impact they can have on mental performance is ideal for 5%er’s as well as businessmen and women or students.
