Increasingly eSports athletes are seeking out ways to maintain focus and mental clarity without jitters or other negative side effects in an effort to reach peak performance and remain calm under pressure. In fact, researchers at the German Sport University Cologne found that an above-average proportion of eSport players are vegetarians or vegans (14.8%) and summarised their findings stating, “in general the cliches of the junk-food-eating gamer are outdated.” 11 However, these researchers have also indicated that nearly 40% of gamers are regularly consuming energy drinks as teams are increasingly sponsored by energy drink manufacturers.11 Further, explain researchers, the touted increase in performance is particularly attractive to these players.11 To combat these challenges, many teams employ trainers and strategists to help support a player’s goals for optimised mental vitality.9
With the uptick in eSports players turning to natural and healthy alternatives, Bacopa monnieri extract—Bacognize—offers multiple benefits to cognitive health through increased focus, attention, memory, and overall mood, all of which may improve gameplay.
Large-scale events like Olympic-sanctioned eSports tournaments and professional tournaments have people paying attention to how testing protocols and anti-doping regulations may be applicable to eSports. As a clean label solution backed by traceability, sustainability, and strict quality assurance parameters, Bacognize is ideal for gamers looking for natural solutions.
Outside of gameplay, Bacognize offers a range of benefits for daily life and overall wellness. With nearly 200 institutions in the United States alone offering athletic scholarships for eSports, increasing numbers of up-and-coming gamers are also students. These students need sharp mental focus to keep up with the demands of collegiate coursework and remain competitive in the eSports arena. In a clinical study conducted on medical students (people with already high cognitive abilities), it was found that after only six weeks of Bacognize (300mg, twice daily), “…[t]he neuropsychological measures for efficiency of attention, freedom from distractibility, and working memory improved significantly.” 1
