Gamers rely on quick reactions, focus and fine motor skills to excel at their games. The patented blend of arginine, silicon and inositol found in nooLVL improves cognitive performance in eSport gamers.

The ingredient was first used in Nitrosigine, but Nutrition21 went even bigger with nooLVL by adding extra inositol! It’s this that gives nooLVL its unique cognitive flexibility.

Improved Reaction Time

A gamer’s reaction time is crucial, as they must make a myriad of decisions reflexively. nooLVL improves short-term memory, allowing gamers to respond quickly and accurately.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study in eSport gamers, nooLVL was shown to enhance cognitive performance during video gaming. Specifically, the product studied improved speed and accuracy in decision making, and reduced errors when compared to placebo. It also improved attention and concentration, visual representation, and forethought/sequencing. Additionally, it increased perceived vigor (energy), and decreased anger.

The ingredient in question, nooLVL, is a patented complex of Bonded Arginine and Silicon with an additional optimized dose of Inositol. It is a non-stimulant nootropic designed for and clinically tested in eSports to target benefits that are important to this rapidly growing industry. It improves energy1 levels, increases focus and concentration, enhances working memory, and reduces fatigue without negatively impacting heart rate or blood pressure. It is safe and GRAS certified. The Nutrition 21 team is proud that nooLVL has been selected by NutraIngredients-USA as the Sports Nutrition Ingredient of the Year.

Reduced Errors

Gaming requires a lot of quick decisions, reaction time and accuracy. Gamers often take supplements that help them stay focused and energized throughout long gaming sessions. This has bred demand for nutritional ingredients that are clinically tested to improve cognitive performance among gamers. Nutrition 21 has developed nooLVL, a non-stimulant nootropic ingredient without caffeine that’s been shown to boost energy levels and reduce errors in esports gamers.

In a double-blind placebo-controlled study, nooLVL was found to quickly increase perceived energy and enhance cognition in esports gamers. It also helped them make more accurate choices when performing a trail making test and reduced errors in the Stroop test. In addition, nooLVL was shown to help esports gamers prioritize their well-being when compared to placebo users. This makes nooLVL a standout cognitive performance supplement that can be used in a variety of dietary supplements including powders, RTDs and gummies. It is the first patented, non-stimulant ingredient that’s been clinically studied in esports gamers.

Increased Cognitive Awareness

Increased Cognitive Awareness

As gamers become more skilled and competitive, the games they play become faster and more complex. This requires a high level of focus, accuracy and cognitive awareness. This is where NooLVL comes in. It is a non-stimulant brain booster that has been clinically studied in esport gamers and found to significantly improve performance.

PricePlow has covered Nutrition 21’s Nitrosigine before, which is a patented complex of Bonded Arginine and Silicon with an additional optimised dose of Inositol that was designed for and clinically tested in a population of gamers. This ingredient can boost blood flow, leading to increased (non-stimulant) perceived energy and improved focus in just 15 minutes.

This latest research in esports gamers shows that nooLVL is not only effective at improving reaction time, but also significantly reduces errors and increases concentration and visual representation within just 15 minutes of consumption. This new evidence, combined with the previously published results, gives manufacturers the confidence to formulate nooLVL into a wide variety of esports dietary supplement products including ready-to-drink beverages, powders, functional food and snacks, bars and more.

Increased Energy

In a recent clinical study, the patented ingredient, nooLVL (a complex of arginine bonded to silicate and inositol) was used to improve short-term reaction time and cognitive performance in video gamers. It also improved visual representation, forethought and sequencing. Additionally, the ingredient boosted energy levels in these gamers and reduced anger and fatigue.

In addition, nooLVL is a non-stimulant ingredient and does not raise heart rate or blood pressure in the same way that many other ingredients found in energy drinks or caffeine supplements do. This is a huge advantage when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle while playing video games.


Gaming is a huge industry and people are constantly looking for ways to sharpen their skills and gain an edge in the competition. Nutrition21 is proud to provide a clinically substantiated ingredient to help esports athletes level up their game and play safe. The company’s new product Player1 is a great example. It contains nooLVL along with a variety of other nutrients including L-theanine, choline and huperzine.
