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).
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.
