HCF Happy, Calm & Focused by HCF AminoScience has always been a consumer favorite, but in the last few years it’s climbed to the top of our list based upon a number of factors: 1) Proven 90/10 formulation (90% F&Q amino acids with a solid 10% delivery system) for actually rebuilding neurotransmitters and feeding your Hypothalamus (balancing your entire Endocrine System); 2) Extensive track record of consumer effectiveness over the years - we haven’t seen anything comparable on feedback, not only on our site here but the company itself has collected over 100+ documented experiences from professionals in various countries; 3) USA formulated and manufactured, but a solid USA trial offer and very internationally friendly - a 3-5 day “anywhere in the world” FedEx shipping policy takes the cake for anyone ordering supplements outside of the USA who hates to wait (they lose money on shipping to make it affordable).

HCF Happy, Calm & Focused by HCF AminoScience has always been a consumer favorite, but in the last few years it’s climbed to the top of our list based upon a number of factors:
1) Proven 90/10 formulation (90% F&Q amino acids with a solid 10% delivery system) for actually rebuilding neurotransmitters and feeding your Hypothalamus (balancing your entire Endocrine System);

2) Extensive track record of consumer effectiveness over the years – we haven’t seen anything comparable on feedback, not only on our site here but the company itself has collected over 100+ documented experiences from professionals in various countries;

3) USA formulated and manufactured, but a solid USA trial offer and very internationally friendly – a 3-5 day “anywhere in the world” FedEx shipping policy takes the cake for anyone ordering supplements outside of the USA who hates to wait (they lose money on shipping to make it affordable).

The Foundation

We don’t get too caught up on all the sappy details about how a company or product came about, but the fact that the Peta family is open about themselves, their manufacturing principles, their history and even their track record of standing behind the product for years goes a long way with us and is somewhat unusual to the industry.

Yes, amino acid formulations are not new to brain supplementation, but the challenge has always been having the right delivery system through the BBB (Blood Brain Barrier) or else it just ends up skipping the brain and rolls around the blood stream only feeding the body. Which really isn’t the point of a brain supplement, right?

So one reason behind consumers reporting strong results with HCF Happy, Calm & Focused could be based on its 90/10 F&Q delivery system. This delivery system of key associated neuro-nutrients allegedly imitates how F&Q is actually found in whole-food proteins. And like most formulas that actually work.. they are generally simple and use common sense. So the basic approach of HCF is, “We know that F&Q found in whole-food proteins can cross the BBB (Blood Brain Barrier) into the brain, so why not imitate the formulation?” And by the results thus far, it appears this approach is working for HCF Happy, Calm & Focused.

Is HCF Happy, Calm & Focused Right For You?

Good question, no supplement is for everyone…but what we do know is that on a daily basis, almost no one can be without F&Q amino acids. These two amino acids are essential to not only your feel-good neurotransmitters but your Hypothalamus which is the master over your entire hormonal system (Endocrine System). Amino acid F is the only amino acid that feeds your brain’s Hypothalamus. So there is no doubting the amino acids, the only question is if they can actually get into the brain.

Amino acid F (DL-Phenylalanine) is an essential (only comes from outside food) amino acid of tremendous nutritional importance and a known nutritional precursor to the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), epinephrine (adrenaline) and involved in the release of PEA, phenylethylamine which can sensitize endorphin receptors to endorphins. These neurotransmitters strongly support warm feelings of love, pleasure, happiness, alertness, energy, motivation, memory, attention, internal calmness, and sleep to name just a few.

Amino acid Q (L-Glutamine) is a conditional (only sometimes produced by the body) amino acid and a major precursor for the neurotransmitter GABA, or gamma-aminobutyric acid. This crucial amino acid helps the mind relax and “tone down” unwanted “mind chatter” which can sharpen a person’s ability to focus and concentrate with more clarity.

    Can anyone comment on whether this helps with sleep in anyway? I have trouble in both getting to sleep & staying asleep (as it generally takes atleast an hour and a half to get to sleep and i wake up in the night multiple times to say the least)..

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    Is this similar to or the same as Provigil or modafinil? Will it boost my energy as well as my cognitive abilities? I am 75 years old and just suffered a 3 month long cold that left me weak and unfocused. My memory is shot and I can’t seem to stay awake especially after I eat, even the tiniest morsel. I try reading and before I know it, I’m asleep. The same with watching TV or a Movie. I love NBA Basketball but I’m not able to watch eve half of the first quarter. My doctor seems to think that this is normal for a man my age, but I know different. I have never been this lethargic and out of focus. My brain seems to have shut down. Can your product help me?

    What you read is what you get! I have been so drained from work that my wife told me I need to take something or it will start effecting my health. With in days, I noticed I was more calm, alert, and had so much more energy. My wife is going to try it now too.

    I have been taking this for a few weeks and have noticed a few things. For one, I have more energy during the day and when I want to go to bed, I can! I don’t lay there for hours counting sheep. The other thing I noticed is my bowel moments are better. Good stuff!

    I wasn’t depressed but I was just so emotionally drained. After a painful divorce, loosing my job, and my kids going to college, I had no idea what to do with myself. This gave me my pep and energy back. I landed a new job and I have my first date in over 20 years next week!

    If you have kids, or work with kids… You know how draining it can be. I not only have my own, but teach everyone elses! I started taking this to keep me focused and calm and it got the job done. I am please with the results. Give this one a try.

    Just wanted to say thank you for this article. I purchased this supplement about 2 months ago and it has been a huge help for my memory. I am in a very difficult period at school and this formula has been a huge help. I finally have a clear mind now and focusing is easy!

  6. 6

    My order arrived quickly, and I tried it immediately. The first week, I wondered if the change I was feeling was a coincidence, or maybe just a placebo effect. Now, after the 4th HCF bottle I know is the product. I have back my happy spirit from decades ago.

  7. 7

    HCF has been really good with me! Being as a single mother for two teenagers is not an easy thing…but this supplement helps me face almost every challenge. Thank you!

    About a year ago I started having trouble focusing on daily tasks, weather they were job related or simply house chores. I couldn’t finish what I started without getting distracted by other things. After a long research on the internet I started to see the importance of neurotransmitters for a healthy brain function and optimal mental capacity. I also read about Phenylalanine and Glutamine’s extraordinary benefits in improving alertness, intellectual and physical performance, mood, and least but not last, focus and concentration. Exactly what I needed! So I started searching for supplements that featured these chemicals, and there it was: a clinically proven formula with great reviews from consumers! The free trial convinced me that this was indeed an effective way to improve cognitive functions and overall mood. This is an excellent product, I am completely satisfied!

    I have had surgery to remove cavernoma from brainstem and have developed among other things neuropathy on right side. Was prescribed metanx but i took this instead because metanx has a long list of side effects I would like to avoid.

    I am a Mother of a 10 year old girl who has been diagnosed with Asperger’s, ADHA- inattentive type, slow processing speed, Dyslexia as well as Anxiety as her most recent. I am desperately seeking an all natural product, as she has been non-medicated thus far, to help calm her Anxiety primarily but also help her focus. She is a joy and generally a Happy child however her Anxiety is a wall that prevents her learning and Dealing with every day life. Any suggestions?

      Hello Taryn,

      If you are interested in purchasing HCF, Happy Calm & Focus, we believe that the best way to proceed is by contacting the company itself. They can provide you with more information on their product and its benefits, as we cannot recommend any supplement to replace a treatment prescribed by a physician.

      No matter what your choice about trying HCF, have you looked into the GAPS diet for your daughter? Good luck on your healing search.

    am 65 and have had bipolar for many years and on 2 meds.read all the posts did not see any mention of others with bipolar. my understanding is my meds tell my brain to turn off transmitters.because the meds are chemically doing it for them. so wouldn’t it be pointless to take this wonderful natural supplement if my meds just counteract it?I eat organic I take organic supplements as much as possible. but going off meds even slowly concerns me with my bipolar. would like your input. Thank you

    I got my free sample of HCF 4 weeks ago. You are supposed to take 3 (large) pills, which I did for 3 weeks. Then I had to leave town and I forgot my pills so I couldn’t take HCF during that time. I took the rest after I got back from my trip. The bottom line is that it didn’t do much for me…I felt some improvements in what concerns my daily focus…but that’s all I got. Maybe it works better for others. Maybe it makes you focused and less calm and happy…I don’t know.

  13. 19

    Seems to work. Still using it after one month with some decent results. It’s better than most anyway

      Hello Donna :)
      I recently moved from HCF to another weight loss supplement…I mean HCF showed some results but I’m more about losing weight fast so I went with something else. It really depends on what you want and how fast you want to lose weight. And I don’t see anything about weight loss on their site or in this review…

      Hope this helps,

  14. 22

    I’ve been taking these pills and since 10/05/15 and I’m extremely happy with the results. I do feel more energetic, more focused…I feel better overall.

  15. 23

    Not a good return policy of allowing only 20 days for return when you pay full price You must pay full price of $59.95 to be eligible and postage is deducted plus a $5 restocking fee even though it states clearly that the bottles are not restocked. This does not make sense. There’s also return postage to be paid.
    Sounds like most will keep it longer to see if it works and then it will be too late to return if it does not. Free trial is just to get customers into the automatic shipping plan that is not eligible for refunds so that saves them a lot of money down the line. What I’m saying is that a 30 day guarantee would be more reasonable and better than a free 15 offer.

    I have been taking Xanax .75 nightly to sleep for over ten years. Would it be safe to take HCF in the morning since it affects the same area in brain as Xanax?

  17. 25

    My wife and I have been using this product for a year and we are very satisfied with the results. We are both retired and after our sons went to college we started feeling a little depressed and lonely. We wanted to be able to enjoy life again and be happy like we once used to be, so we asked our doctor what would be the appropriate way to do that. He said that supplements are a very safe and effective way to increase the levels of “feel good” neurotransmitters such as Serotonin or Dopamine which would eventually result in enhanced mood. He specifically recommended this product as one of his top-choices, although the price was a little elevated as compared to other such formulas. We both felt the benefits of HCF from the first two weeks and we are now at peace with our lives and with each other! I would not stop taking these pills for anything in the world!

    My sister started taking these capsules after suffering a nervous break-down due to a severe depression caused by her stressful job. She said they immediately helped her to feel less depressed and anxious, sleep better, and face daily stress more lightly. I also noticed the improvements in her behavior and general mood after about three weeks. I have also taken this supplement to improve my focus- as it is recommended as well as a brain boosting product. It has helped allot in this direction and I am grateful I found something that is both safe and effective!

  19. 27

    I have been reading all kind of testimonials about the formula before buying it. Although some people said its marketing campaign is far too aggressive as compared to the real benefits, I decided to still purchase the formula and see for myself. First of all I should say that I have been struggling with depression for years, and have tried all sorts of medication, including prescription drugs that mostly made me feel sleepy and dizzy. For me, this has been an excellent alternative to those ineffective drugs and has managed to keep my symptoms under control with no side effects. So I think the formula deserves its rank among the top brain boosting, mood-enhancing supplements!

  20. 28

    I bought the formula when I saw the great mood balancing results it had on my friend. I used to have periods of times that would last up to several weeks when I was feeling very low and could not get myself to think positively or improve my mood. My friend said she used to have the same symptoms, but after starting this treatment, they just disappeared. At first I did not get the expected results, but after a couple of months, I started feeling better and better, and these periods started getting shorter and less frequent. I am very satisfied with the effects of this product and I will continue to buy it as long as it will help me feel good about myself!

  21. 29

    I particularly like this amino-acid formula because it works so fast. I have been used other amino-acid based formulations to treat my occasional depression and anxiety symptoms and generally boost mood, but with this one I can see the results in just half an hour after taking it. So it is great as an emergency solution whenever I have an anxiety attack or suddenly feel depressed. I love it!

  22. 30

    I bought this supplement at the recommendation of a healthcare practitioner who believes in using natural remedies for treating a disease. He told me this is one of the safest and effective (in his opinion) brain supplement that was also suited for my specific needs. He was right! My general mood has improved a lot since starting the treatment and I am less stressed in generally. From my experience, this product works excellent as an antidepressant, although its price is higher than those of traditional supplements advertised as mood boosters. However, I think it’s worth the money as it is very potent and gets right to the source of the disease instead of simply addressing its symptoms.

    This formula seemed to be for a long time a much too expensive supplement to buy. I was searching for a supplement to enhance my mental capacity, particularly my abilities to focus, concentrate, and memorize new information, especially during finals. I was in my third year of college when I first heard of this formula from a colleague of mine. Her tests results were great so I asked her how she does it. She told me that she was using the product for two years with no side effects. I ordered the free sample and started noticing the first benefits after 10 days or so. I was less stressed, so I could get focused on learning, instead of wasting precious time. I was able to stay focused for longer periods of time. Now I have a job and I continue to use the formula to cope with daily stress and achieve the best results at work and at home.

  24. 32

    I work in the IT field and am forced to learn new technologies and software almost daily, so at some point this became a very tiring. I just couldn’t keep up with the job requirements and was at risk of being fired. So I had become desperate. I started researching the internet for the fastest acting and most potent ways to boost brain capacity and found this product to be among the most popular amino acid supplements. After trying the free trial sample, I just couldn’t believe how much more effective I was at work and how easier it became to keep up with all the tasks I was assigned. After 1 year I am still completely satisfied with the formula and I sincerely recommend it.

  25. 33

    A friend of mine recommended this product after losing someone dear. I was in a very dark place at that time and just lost the will of living. I was being very depressed, but didn’t want to get specialized help or any pill that would help me get out of that state. But my friend insisted so much that I decided to buy it just to make him shut up. I am so grateful to him right now, because I think it is because of this supplement that I am now able to smile again and be a normal person. Of course, I still have bad days, but my symptoms are so much less frequent and intense that I think of them as normal mood swings. I recommend this product for everyone who has suffered such a trauma and wants to get past it.

  26. 34

    I have been searching for a brain supplement to help me with my depression for years. I have tried all different types of prescription drugs and natural remedies, but still the symptoms didn’t go away. I noticed mild improvements in my general mood, but those were just temporary and when I was missing a dose, I instantly felt sad and unhappy. After reading about the benefits of certain amino acids on mental health and mood, I decided to give the formula a chance. And after one week I was feeling better than ever, I was able to smile again and generally had a more positive attitude. I have been using it for 6 months now and I am very satisfied with the product. For me this is the best product so far!

    I’m an 81 years old grandpa with 5 grandchildren. I love them so much but sometimes, when the whole family reunites at our house, it gets so loud and tiresome… My wife got this supplement for both of us, to help us focus and give us energy when needed. What can i say… this supplement works, for real. I love it.

  28. 36



    I got this supplement for my wife who has a very stressful office job. She works 14 hours/day on average and lately she had some problems focusing during these long days. Now, she’s taking HCF, Happy, Calm and Focused, and she does feel a difference.

  29. 37

    This is a very solid brain supplement. I’ve never heard of HCF before this review, but I will try it for sure and let you all know how it goes. Just ordered the trial sample…finger crossed :)

  30. 39

    This product worked great for hot flashes. It’s not even in it’s description, i know, i’m amazed as well. I purchased this initially to help me improve my attention spawn (i’m 73 yrs old) but in exchange it helped me tremendously with my hot flashes (a feeling of burning up from within, terrible thing to deal with)… thank you!

  31. 40

    Just received my order (12 bottles of this product). I’ve heard many good things about happy, calm and focused and i wanted my whole family to give it a try :)

  32. 41

    Brain supplement


    this is my favorite brain supplement…and I can say that I have tried them all! I’m a brain enthusiast and I just love reading about brain supplementation, vitamins, amino acids, research and so on. my advice for everyone: give this one a try.

  33. 42

    I don’t believe I read the entire posting list from “January 2, 2010 at 4:04 P.M.” through “December 11, 2013 at 7:49 P.M.”.

    I ordered “Excelerol” 3-Days ago, so I’m awaiting for that arrival, but after reading about “HCF”…I’m quite curious.

    Any recommendations about combining “Excelerol” with “HCF”?

    Unless I missed it, I would LOVE to see where “Excelerol” ranks amongst all these supplements.

  34. 44

    Everyone responds differently but solely based on the ingredients this formula contains L-Glutamine which increases GABA levels and GABA is what xanax and other anxiolytics affect. Bottom line: It’s worth trying for the 9 bucks you pay for S/H, but give it 90 days for sure and call them if you have any questions.

  35. 45

    I didn’t feel “happy” either but I did feel more focused and a little calmer. The biggest thing I noticed was that I felt really motivated, I was actually doing stuff that needed to be done w/out procrastinating. Lithium orotate however did make me feel happy.

  36. 46

    I would think that nutrition is a matter of balance, such as the case of minerals (mineral wheel) but what about amino acids? HCF has only 2 aminos in it. Does anyone know if over a period of time after taking this one should add a comprehensive amino acid complex to avoid amino acid deficiencies?

  37. 47

    I’ve tried different mood boosters before but HCF has really been great for me. It has been consistent in boosting and helping me maintain my moods even and my mind sharp, and although I’ve been using it for months there is no decrease in effectiveness that I have noticed. The price is indeed a bit higher than other similar products, bu it;s definitely worth it.

  38. 51

    Norris Dana


    The problems i had with my mood changes started to be much more manageable after using this product for a while. Best feeling i had in months, i want to continue using it.

    • 52

      Exactly how long did it take for you to feel some of the effects? My younger sister just started taking this and she keeps saying she’d not noticing anything yet.

  39. 53

    I have many friends that are bragging about this supplement. I have decided to try it on my own and they seem to be right about it. Since I began the treatment I feel more focused and energized. It is an expensive supplement, but after you’ll try it you will for sure buy it again!

  40. 54

    I’ve heard so many good things about this supplement and I think I expected too much from it. I can’t say that it makes a difference for me, cause it doesn’t… I feel just the same…and I’ve reach the conclusion that the less you expect, the less disappointed you will be.

  41. 55

    I had big expectations regarding HCF, because it seems to be very popular and also appreciated by many of its users. But I guess I was wrong… In my case it did nothing.

  42. 56

    Bud Chas


    First, I have seen a banner advertising the product. I decided to buy this product after I have read many positive testimonials from its users. Although I was expecting much from it, it seems that in my case it wasn’t useful. I can’t feel any difference after a couple of weeks.

  43. 57



    After several failed attempts with other supplements, I have finally found one that suits my needs. It really helps me to be calm and to recall all the important things that I have to do during the days. It was very embarrassing for me to forget about stuff that my colleagues have asked me to do.

  44. 58

    I was having serous issues to remember common things and thoughts. For instance, I was thinking of something and after a few seconds I forgot what it was. It was extremely annoying and difficult for me to have a conversation with someone because of these lapses of memory and thanks to HCF I am now normal again.

  45. 59



    The interesting fact about about this formula is that I did not have to wait a lot for the full effects. Usually when I take this kind of product I need to have a ton of patience, but with this one in less than a month I was feeling better than ever.

  46. 60

    Thomas Kronder


    Finally a product that does everything I need. It was a big surprise but I guess that’s the best part. It is a universal supplement that makes everything about your life better. Trust me when I say you won’t regret using it one bit!

  47. 61

    Since I have started taking HCF Happy Calm and Focused I don’t have problems recalling common things that I usually tend to forget. I am glad I found the perfect formula that seems to help me with my problem. I would rate this supplement 9/10 as it did great for me.

  48. 62

    I didn’t know that having kids must be so hard. My husband is away almost all the time and I have to deal with all the housework. I try to work from home as much as I can, but it is extremely difficult to find the time. I have tried this product because my best friend told me about it. I was skeptical at first, but I have to say that it helped me a lot to organize myself better and offer my kids a more friendly environment .

  49. 63

    This product is better than everything that I’ve tried before. And the fact that they provided a free time trial for such big claims. Shows that they are not afraid and that it’s a great probability that they are actually true. In this case, it’s almost as good as they say it is. It truly improves every aspect of your life.

  50. 64

    This was an excellent choice for me! I’ve followed the free trial and I realized that it was a very good solution for all my issues. It helped me manage all the work that I have to do in a single day in much less time. I have no bad words to say about this supplement.

  51. 65

    The trial was a very pleasant period as I started to notice my overall mood get better and better. I also started being more active and taking more responsibilities. Now I am a happy customer with a very fulfilling lifestyle.

  52. 66

    My mother has been extremely worried for me lately, because I was starting to forget almost everything, even little things. I have been very depressed over the last 7 years, because my father died when I was 16. I didn’t want to hurt her and I told her I was fine all this time. But I wasn’t and I started therapy and I feel a little better. Anyways, I have taken HCF Happy, Calm & Focused for almost three weeks now and I can say that my memory improved. I am more organized and focused and my mother is happy for me, being proud that recommended me this remedy.

  53. 67

    I think this supplement encompasses everything that a product like this should be about. It has broad effects, no drawbacks, it does not have an exaggerated cost and it provides a long free trial period. I don’t know what more you could ask for.

  54. 68

    I’ve been recommended this product by a lot of friends and even by my family doctor. Since I don’t usually take supplements I was a little skeptical at first. However, after trying it I ended up loving it immediately. I basically feel in control of my life all the time.

  55. 69

    I would have never succeeded in raising two children by myself without this product. It has helped me deal with the anxiety and frustration that made me an angry unhappy parent. I managed to get rid of my problems and focus only on helping my children.

  56. 70

    This product definitely deserves the money you spend on it. Unlike many other medications it actually works.

  57. 71

    After a couple of years of trying many supplements, now I’m happy to say I only use this supplement for all my needs. Stress is no longer my nemesis and I can handle anything life is throwing at me.

  58. 72

    Rodge C.


    I like it because it pretty much covers all my stress issues with no dangerous side effects. It completes me. Try it.

  59. 73

    Both my co-workers and my family have noticed I’m like this new person since I’ve started taking HCF. I feel calmer and so my BP has started to go down and I haven’t had irregular heartbeats in four months. This product is really great!

  60. 74

    I just finished the free trial sample and I’m impressed with this product. Will land the second order today and I can’t wait to start taking it as suggested. I can already feel some improvements in my concentration and focus during the day. amazing!

  61. 75

    I don’t know what all the fuss with this formula is. I’ve tried it for three months and I can’t say I’ve noticed any effect. I’m still feeling down and am not in the mood of starting anything new.

  62. 76



    I actually have a question. I am looking for a product to enhance brain proficiency at a maximum level.
    I am 44 years old and have had chemotherapy intermittently within the past two years. My brain is extremely sluggish. I am forgetful, I lack concentration and I am loosing my vocabulary. Can I take this in addition to another brain enhancing supplement to maximize my improvement? Additional supplements such as Brainstrong or Procera AVH. I am excited about the prospect of improving my quality of life by improving my brain power.
    Please assist in my decision making process.

      Hi Brainstarved,

      Our suggestion is to take this supplement alone and see how your memory, focus and concentration improve. However, since this is an amino-acid supplement, you could take it with another supplement just fine. In that case we suggest considering a Vitamin Supplement. Procera AVH and Brainstrong are both decently formulated Vitamin Supplements but we would suggest looking for a formula that was specially designed to be a potent Vitamin Supplement.

      Happy, Calm & Focused is a natural supplement with dietary grade ingredients. Essentially that means it shouldn’t adversely interact with medications, much like taking a multi-vitamin usually doesn’t negatively interact with prescription medicines.

      However, any changes to diet with regard to supplementation mixed with prescription medicine should be closely monitored because prescription medication is chemically created and not natural. Our recommendation is to start with a lower dosage and build up to the normal dosage over time, carefully monitoring any health changes. You may experience mild headaches or even slight dizziness as your body becomes acclimated to the nutrients the supplement is providing. If these do not persists then you can continue taking it at the correct dosage. In some rare cases it may be beneficial to stay at a lesser dosage.

    Just finished reading all the positive comments about this supplement. But now im struck with another problem . I cant order it from the website as I live in Australia. Can anyone plz helpme out how can someone order it out of the US???? much appreciated!!!

      There is no reason you cannot order HCF through the website because you reside in Australia. In fact there have been a few people email us in the past asking about the availability of the product in Australia and they were able to take advantage of the free trial. If for some reason the website doesn’t allow you to process the order, you should call the company directly.

    I have been taking Wellbrutrin an anti depressant for years. is there a problem taking this along with other anti depressants. Do you think I could stop taking the Wellbrutrin if I take this?

      We have mentioned a few times about mixing this supplement with other supplements or medicines. As a general rule of thumb, because this is a dietary brain supplement, it shouldn’t cause any negative reactions.

      That being said, it is always important to closely monitor your body when you add or take away a supplement or drug from your routine. Our suggestion is to gradually build up to the dosage of the product you want to try and then gradually relieve yourself from the other drug.

      This allows you to slowly introduce dietary / chemical changes to the body allowing it to adjust and adapt. We personally believe that a natural supplement such as this one could definitely help you to remove your need for WellButrin if you carefully step yourself away from the drug.

    Will this formula help lift my anxiety, mood? Its causing me to be stressed out, not able to focus and relax. Making me depressed. Antidepressants are awful.

    I am thinking of trying this for my son who has terrible consentration in school. I was wondering can he still continue to take his one a day multi vitamin if he starts taking this?

      Hi Shelby,

      HCF Happy, Calm & Focused has been used for children in many cases from some of the comments and emails we receive without any problems. Its ingredients are food-grade dietary ingredients like most supplements and shouldn’t have any negative impact when used in conjunction with multi-vitamin or vitamin complexes. As with all things health related, keep a close eye on how your son reacts to the supplement. In some cases it can be better to start with lower than recommended doses so the body can become acclimated to the changes in the system the supplements provide.

  69. 91

    One thing I’ve noticed so few people are talking about is how affordable H.C.F. is. For the kind of comfort it provides it’s incredibly inexpensive. So kudos H.C.F. for helping me feel better and not costing me an arm and leg.

    I REALLY like this becuase its helped out SO much in my social life my friends are always telling me how COOL I am and how much FUN i am to hang out with.

  71. 94

    I’m sure the supplement is good for some people, just not all. I took it a few weeks and while I didn’t feel worse, I didn’t feel better either.

      I agree. My husband and I stated taking it and he noticed results after a few days whereas I took them for weeks and didn’t notice any change.

  72. 97

    After reading these excellent reviews, I’m sold. I’m going to order the free trial and see how much this product can help me. I will report back in a few weeks my experience.

  73. 98

    This is like the best supplement ever! theyre like little ninjas who go thru your body killing all the bad feelings and stuff. i told all my friends about it and the ones who took it like iut too

      Hello Sundar, we have emailed you to let you know that you need to contact the manufacturer if you have some issue with their product. We only provide the review of the product here and we do not provide the phone number so I don’t know how you could find the wrong phone number, since there isn’t any.

      I just double checked and the phone number to contact the company is in several places on their website, we encourage you to contact them directly in regards to any issues you have.

      I am currently in the research phase of deciding whether I should try this product. I’ve just ended a 3 year position with a company whose culture is that of extreme stress, disrespect and disorganization. With only a 2 week break, I’ve found that I’m still functioning in a high stress mode (irritability, lack of focus, difficulty communicating effectively). I seem to have carried this into my new career and I don’t like this feeling. People’s opinions are just what they are, everybody has one. For the most part I am leaning toward giving this product a try. It seems a bit expensive, but I’m hoping the value of the product itself makes it worth it. My biggest concerns are the responses from the customer service team. They seem a bit condescending and defensive. This is a great example of poor customer service. Being condescending indicates that you think you are smarter than, or look down upon your customers. This could be a deterrent and could drive potential customers, such as myself, away from trying the product. Your customers are your biggest asset, after all, without us there would be no you.

  74. 103

    I keep hearing good things about this formula but it didn’t work for me. I tried it for a few weeks but I didn’t feel any different. I just wound up giving my bottle away.

    this review made me go and order a free trail for my son who has attention problems. his teachers noticed before i did that he is responding better in calss and im very happy to hear that. we are going to keep trying it for a while and see how it works on a longerterm for him

    Happy, Calm & Focused is a major life changer for my family, I am glad I found these reviews here on this site that started me to try it. I just wanted to share a comment and say it will really make a difference in your life… in general I just feel better about everything, and its a good feeling.

    I’ve been taking it for a few weeks and honestly, I haven’t noticed much of a difference. My sister-in-law has been taking it for almost a year and said she felt better after just a week. I guess it works for some people, just not for me.

    I have a lot of trouble taking pills, so I was just wondering, is there another way I can take this?

    • 109

      On the official website they mention that you can break the pills open and mix them in water, specifically if you or your children have trouble taking pills.

    Memory has never been my strong point, I can park somewhere and a hour later, I can’t find my car. My uncle had a similar problem a few years back and I asked him if he’d done anything to improve his memory, that’s when he told me about this supplement. It’s all natural, has no side effects, and they give you a free trial. I immediately looked into it and after reading some of the articles and reviews, I decided to give it a try. After I tried it I was hooked. Not only did my memory improve but friends and co-workers tell me all the time how different I seem, happier and at ease. This review led me to it and I encourage other people to try it.

    • 112

      BRS Publishing


      At the point of writing this response, HCF is only available through their official website. I am not sure where the company stands in relation to getting the product in health stores, if that is even a goal. Presently however, the product can only be received from the official website.

    I used to have problems with concentration, now I can stay focused no matter what’s going on around me. I would totally recommend this product to anyone. Actually I am recommending this product to everyone!

  81. 115

    My neighbor has always been a downer, seeing the cloud to every silver lining. I told him about this supplement and he said he was already taking natural supplements, I told him one more wouldn’t kill him. In less than a week I could see a different person. He was much more enjoyable to be around and he didn’t constantly complain about every little thing. After those incredible results he started to get his wife to take it and they’re both far happier than they were before. This formula has a positive impact on people, its amazing.

    Hi I really don’t believe in this product I’m a little skeptical. This company seems to only sell without take care of the people healthy, but maybe I wrong. I will try but for now this is my opinion.

  83. 118

    Jenny Spanton


    The thing I like most about the formula, is how much more relaxed I am. I mean, no side effects is nice. So was the free trial bottle. But really, I just like being able to fall asleep when I want to, not whenever it’s the least convenient.

    • 119

      I know right? THe worst is faaling asleep at your desk when you have to get the project done today and you can’t keeep yuou eyes open.

  84. 120

    I hate this product, I found alot of the vitamins and amino acids that are in this supplement, are in PROTEIN drinks!!!! Not, surprising! All brain supplements are, is vitamins and they cost an arm and a leg!

  85. 121



    I was looking for a natural way to help reduce stress, from breathing exercises to acupuncture, then I found this. It almost sounded too good to be true but after reading these reviews I decided to try it, and I’m glad I did. I’ve never felt better and it’s all thanks to this company, and their product, and the people who convinced me to try it.

  86. 122



    When I think back before I started taking the supplement and how much I’ve improved, both mentally and socially, the only thing I can think is, transformation. THanks for helping me get my life back on track.

    • 123

      Thank you Tami for your kind words. It is truly an honour and priielvge to get to know the many individuals and organizations doing such great work in our community. I too was impressed at the AGM with the sense of commitment from HCF Board members and staff. We have benefited enormously from the leadership of Lindsey George and will now have the pleasure of working with Gary Warner who brings such a wealth of experience and wisdom to the position. Our community has many challenges but what was reflected at our AGM is some of the many assets we also have to help take those challenges on.

    This is the only supplement that has helped me sleep, however when taken during the day I feel a little uptight and short tempered. Not sure if it’s the D/L Phenyalanine or not. I don’t feel happy or all that calm on it but do feel really focused. Is this strange or what? Any comments would be appreciated.

    • 127

      BRS Publishing


      So you are a focused while you are uptight and short tempered during the day, yet at night you calm down and sleep better than ever before correct? Yes, that is a bit uneven, but not unusual when the brain is cleansing and rebuilding itself with amino acid supplementation. Remember your brain was more than likely starving for aminos, now you have it, there is going to be some adjustment until your neurotransmitters are built up to proper levels again.

  88. 128

    The main thing that I get from HCF is being able to sleep well at night. This is not really what they say it will do, but boy it works great for me. I used to toss and turn for an hour before I could sleep, but now its light out right away.

  89. 129

    The formula works! I have used it for over 12 months and it has helped me more than anything else I have tried. I just feel so much better, and dont get low like I used to feel.

  90. 130

    Just a few months ago if you told me to have a good day, I’d tell you all the ways I wasn’t. Then my friend introduced me to this product and it literally changed my life. I still have bad days, but I handle them so much better. Thanks!

  91. 131

    I love this stuff!!! My buddy at work told me about it and how it helped him sleep better and got me a bottle. I’ve been taking it ever since. I sleep like a baby and feel refreshed when I wake up! I just wanted to say thanks and if anyone is thinking about trying this, I say Go for it!

    This formula does contain ingredients that help with brain function; I have seen my 80 year-old mother with Alzheimer’s noticeably improve after taking them. However I just can’t afford it right now.

  93. 134

    This helped me to focus on my studies for longer periods of time. I was never able to focus for more than 1 hour before using it. It doesn’t give me any side effects and has no taste.

      BRS Publishing


      Well its posted.. :-) Yes, we are affiliates of hundreds of products on our site as we clearly document. If you understand the internet, almost every company has affiliate programs for their products. Who could afford to hire nutritional experts like we have to test and analyze brain supplements and provide the results on a first-class website for free? If you could, you probably would be doing it yourself right? We are passionate about our research and the truth of brain supplementation, but we have to get paid for it just like you do with your job or business and we do not believe in paid banner advertising choking up the website. We could have chosen hundreds of products as the top 3, but for now, we chose this particular product as the leading product because of our testing results, the amino acid formulation, and customer feedback. But as with any research, its only the starting point for consumers – they have to do their own research as to what is best for them. No product is for everyone.

    • 137

      I like Rob R. Exact same thing I was thinking as soon as I was reading through their ranked products. Happy-calm-focused over Piracetam? Eh… Ashwagada at number 5? This website is a joke. Also, I love the fact that BRS Publishing just admitted their bias and tried to defend it by saying that they have to get paid! What a joke. People count on objective scrutiny of products that they choose to supplement with and BRS Publishing clearly has a conflict of interest.

      Even the fact that they moderate their comments before they are posted screams fraud.

      (would love to see this get posted, but I doubt it will)

    • 138

      I think you’re confused Noah from what I’m seeing. Reinforcing the claim that they are affiliates and have to make money is a far cry from saying Happy, Calm pays them so its number 1. I think its probably extremely necessary for them to edit some posts because while opinion is fine, professionalism is rarely included.

      I have been taking the product for 5 months and I found it through this site. I felt the review was fair even though they push the free trial as being amazing. The free trial is a great idea, but it isn’t as mind blowing as they make it out to be here. I am also an affiliate (since anyone can become one) and I have signed up my sister in law, my father and 2 friends.

      I’m a fitness counselor and I recommend it because it works. I am an affiliate of this company because its nice to get a little something back from referring people. Not everything is such a conspiracy or malicious Noah.

    This supplement really helped me with calming my nerves. I am really nervous all the time even when other people are relaxed and there is no danger. I guess I was born like that and nothing worked for me until I tried this. I just follow the guidelines and can control myself now.

  95. 141

    I do feel more happy and calm from using it. I just go the free trial and will keep using it.

    This is a good brain supplement without any side effects. I take it regualry and notice the difference in my emotions and outlook on life. i am more positive now and dont let things get to me.

  97. 143

    great supplement. I now give this to my 3 kids and they are doing great at school. They also stay healthy and positive.

  98. 144

    I have had challenging times over the last year. I lost my mom and was devastated. I sunk to an all time low and couldn’t hold down a job. I was looking for something to help me, but I wanted a natural product, not drugs. Fortunately I somehow found HCF and it works wonders. I am a lot happier these days, but I still miss my mom. I managed to get a part time job and have been working for 4 months now. I know I couldn’t do it without this supplement. Thanks

  99. 145

    I saw changes in my mood quite soon. I have now given HCF to my friends and family so it can help them to during these tough times. Many people are unemployed and feeling the stresses of everyday life. We need to be more calm and control out emotions.

  100. 146

    I feel better after 7 days of using the formula and usually these supplements don’t work for me. I was at the end of the rope and had tried everything like herbs, vitamins and other medications. nothing was working to calm me down. I was going out of control, but i’m glad i got some Happy, Calm & Focused now.

  101. 147

    This has worked quite well but Im still in the early stages of the supplement. I will see what happens from here.

  102. 148

    My son has been having trouble at school and he already has issues with his emotions. I got HCF recommended and it seems to working for my son. He is not so aggressive now, and his attention span is longer.

  103. 149

    I work long hours and get stressed with the job and the boss. I need to relax and so I tried HCF. I do notice a different in my nerves but nothing like an overnight change. I would rate it as 7/10.

  104. 150

    look i am skeptical OK. I always have been so I didnt expect anything from this brain supplement. I got the free trial though and after 2 weeks I have no negative side effects. I also feel my mood is better. I like it and dont have any negative points to say.

  105. 151

    I got this for my mum who is 75 years old. She has been feeling low lately, and it seems to have helped her so far. When I visit now, she is able to laugh again and feel better about her life.

  106. 152

    I am always looking for new ways to lift up my mood, so I gave this formula a try. It actually worked!! I can’t believe a supplement worked for me.

  107. 153

    Taking Happy, Calm, Focused with the free trial has shown me that there are things to be grateful for in my life. These are things that I just didnt see before. Its like it turned around my emotions or something. Im the same person, but just happier and calmer now.

  108. 154

    This supplement has transformed my life. As a student done with college, I am only just realizing that I have trouble concentrating and focusing. Since I always did so well in school, no one ever caught the problem, but I find it really difficult to complete any task in a timely manner without drifting off. With this supplement I am much more focused now.

  109. 155



    I wanted to say thank you for your website. You influenced me to get the trial bottle of HCF. I’ve only been on it for a week but have been sleeping better than before.

    I take New Chapter’s whole food multivitamin, whole food fish oil and Lumina Health’s Cell Food. I would greatly appreciate your opinion of Cell Food b/c now that I understand supplements I want your opinion as if I should be taking it or not. I take it for mostly the oxygen and mineral content for general health. I look forward to your comments. Thanks.

    • 156

      BRS Publishing


      Whole food multivitamin and whole food fish oil are excellent choices to contribute to amino acid supplementation like Happy, Calm & Focused. But make sure you take HCF on an empty stomach and separate from your food so that the two do not mix in your blood stream, which could result in poor blood brain barrier penetration for the amino acids.

    • 157

      I couldn’t have said it better myself. I have only been taking HCF for a few weeks but I am feeling some positive changes.

  110. 158



    I really started to get benefits from the formula after the first week. I have been real grouchy for the last year, since getting laid off, but this has given me a more bright outlook in life. My wife noticed the difference and wants to try it as well. Thank you!

  111. 159

    I had been used a multi-vitamin supplement before HCF but it was useless for my emotional control. This works many much better and actually let me sleep at least 7 hours a night. I have sleeping problems for years but this good. Sorry my english.

  112. 160

    John Hammel


    This is a great product. I have tried many different brain supplements over the last year, but this one has really given me the best results. I feel like I am more alert, able to concentrate longer and can get more work done without getting distracted.

  113. 161

    Before I tried HCF I was having problems with memory and focus. Things like I would get up to do something in another room and forget why I went in there. I would be forgetting common things and having to think very hard to recall them but since taking this product I don’t have those problems anymore! This works for me.

Have a comment or question about #1. HCF Happy, Calm & Focused?
