You are now entering GodMode.
In an effort to “weaponise your mind”, a new “brain boosting” supplement called GodMode hit the internet on Tuesday.
It’s target market is specifically gamers who want to outplay their opponents, explains Mashable.
The first product from Boss Level Labs – can you even handle these names – the company is “spearheaded by Scott Miller, who co-founded the game studios Apogee and 3D Realms”, and is known for games such as Duke Nukem, Prey, Wolfenstein 3D, and Max Payne.
Of course, GodMode is a play “on a once-popular cheat and implies that taking it would be the equivalent of becoming invincible” – and that’s just what the supplement aims to do, according to Shota Yamamoto, Boss Level Labs chief science officer:
“GodMode actually levels-up your mind because the formulation is like a brain-hack.”
Although the pills have yet to be approved by the FDA, they do offer “faster reaction speeds, faster access to your memories, improved focus, an increase of your neurotransmitters, and Yoda-like calmness under pressure” all thanks to a collection of ingredients:
The pills contain things like beet powder, caffeine, artichoke extract, and a handful of ingredients most people have never heard of before. The website describes each ingredient and lists the supposed benefits they give you, sometimes using confusing terms that have the added bonus of making them sound really good for your brain.
There’s yamabushitake, which according to the site is a cognitive enhancer, reduces depression and anxiety, and contains two potent nerve growth factors. Boss Level Labs claims you’re going to LOVE this ingredient specifically.
There’s also forskolin, which “elevates cAMP, boosts neural signaling, increases acetylcholine levels.” Ah, elevated cAMP and increased acetylcholine levels are just what I need when I sit down to log some hours into Overwatch.
If you speak food nutrition, heres’ the full list:
I suggest a casual chat with your doctor friend before popping these and if they say ‘yay’, you might as well try it, right?
Just stay away if you’re preggers, under 18, are taking any other med or stimulants, or don’t necessarily want to drop $60 (R830) on gamer pills.
