After experiencing decent results with Alpha Brain I figured I’d give another Onnit product a shot. To be honest, I was half expecting these pre stacked pills to be complete garbage. However, while Onnit appears on the surface to be hypey and gimmicky, their products are backed by science and contain a lot of powerful and synergistic ingredients. In this review I take you through a deep dive of Onnits Shroom Tech Sport.
Why Shroom Tech Sport?
Shroom Tech Sport is marketed as an endurance enhancer. One only has to take a sneak peek at the sales page to see the wide number of athletes who attest to the powerful effects of Shroom Tech Sport.
As a nootropic enthusiast, I was more concerned with the nootropic properties of this supplement rather than the physical aspects. I wanted to know, does Shroom Tech have anything to offer in the way of cognitive enhancement?
I looked at the ingredients and concluded that there could be a lot of mental benefits from taking Shroom Tech Sport, as well as a host of physical benefits. A 2 for 1 bang as they say.
Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside one of these pills.
Shroom Tech Sport Ingredients
Cordyceps Sinensis – This is gonna sound disgusting but bear with me. Cordyceps are a fungus that grow on top of insect larvae (don’t expect to find this little bit of info on the ONNIT website.) It’s one of the most ancient and time tested remedies in Chinese medicine. Cordyceps are reported to increase oxygen uptake, heal the kidneys, soothe the lungs, and increase physical performance. This is the powerhouse ingredient of the entire Shroom Tech Sport stack. More oxygen means more energy for both the brain and physical systems of the body. Read this article for a comprehensive overview of this unique herb.
Ashwagandha – A powerhouse herb in the ayurvedic medicinal system. Also known as Indian Ginseng, Ashwagandha is a potent adaptogen with powerful effects on the mind and body. It’s a strong anxiolytic so it will nuke your anxiety and balance out anything that’s out of whack. It’s been studied heavily and proven to reduce cortisol in athletes and reduce stress overall. It’s anti anxiety effects have been shown to be as strong as the powerful pharmaceutical Lorazepam and exhibits anti depressant effects as well. Truly potent stuff for both mind and body.
Green tea extract – Some of the longest living populations make a habit of drinking green tea everyday. Green tea contains powerful antioxidative components 20X stronger than vitamin C. Green tea also boasts a small amount of caffeine to give you that extra boost.
Rhodiola – An ancient herb native to the ice cold regions of Siberia. Natives have been brewing this stuff into tea for centuries. Rhodiola is another powerful adaptogen shown to increase the resistance to foreign stressors.
Methylcobalamin b12 – The B vitamin family of vitamins are well known as the energy enablers. B12 is perhaps the most important vitamin to give your mind and body the right nutrients to convert the food you eat into raw horse power. B12 defeciency can lead to a host of neurological and physical problems, and the thing is, the modern diet isn’t exactly providing you with this crucial nutrient.
My personal Review of Shroom Tech Sport
I remember about a week before ordering Shroom Tech Sport I stopped my current nootropic regiment. This is always a good idea when you’re about to test a new stack. You do not want anything conflicting and many times certain nootropics aren’t synergistic with each other.
I received the package in the afternoon and decided to pop one of the pills and go for a walk. I enjoy the process of “coming up” so to speak. While nootrpics aren’t as powerful as drugs, they can still be exciting if you aren’t overstimulated.
About an hour in I began to feel a subtle energy in my body. It wasn’t like anything I’ve experienced before. My breathing began to get deeper and my physical body was surging with strength. I wanted to go lift weights but here I was on a walk with nothing heavy to lift.
I also had a deep sense of calmness. Doing the research I knew this was largely due to the anti anxiety effects of the Ashwagandha.
I got to say, it was more difficult getting to sleep that night. Shroom Tech Sport seems to be slightly stimulating yet calming at the same time. It is indeed a strange sense of energy. Nothing like caffeine. I chalked this stimulating effect up to the cordyceps and the green tea extract.
Does Shroom Tech Sport work?
Yes, Shroom Tech Sport does what it says it’s going to do. You’re going to have a heightened sense of physical strength and become mentally stimulated yet calm. This is a powerful combination. If you added L-Tyrosine to this stack I can see Shroom Tech Sport being used as a potent study agent. By itself however it gives you too much physical energy and it’s difficult to sit down.
You will actually WANT to get out and do something physical. If you are battling fatigue or are constantly tired, I recommend you try Shroom Tech Sport and give it a go.
Final Thoughts on Shroom Tech Sport
This stuff is indeed expensive and will unfortunately deter those who don’t have a lot of cash to spend. For those with the cheddar I can’t recommend Shroom Tech enough.
I would not take this everyday. A lot of these ingredients must be cycled in order to retain maximum potency. I would take this maybe a couple times a week during your workouts, or if you need a boost to blow through a day of physical labor.
Noting the anti anxiety properties of Shroom Tech, I will be ordering some Ashwagandha very soon to experiment with. It seems like many of the ingredients in this stack are powerful in their own right and deserve their own private session.
