Deep dive on the issue

Problem-solving is fundamental to human nature, as it is essential for our survival and ability to thrive. Science plays a critical role in problem-solving, providing a systematic and evidence-based approach to understanding and explaining the natural world around us.

Our scientific methods are based on observation and identification of a problem through data collection. We analyze the problem and use literature research to evaluate potential nutrients to address the issue.

The literature used had to meet the following requirements: studies performed on humans, English or Dutch studies, peer-reviewed articles, (systematic) reviews, meta-analyses, clinical trials, safety, and randomized controlled trials (RCTs).

Results & conclusions


The problem we addressed during our research is the high dropout rate of military personnel because of physical complications and wear & tear, due to constant physical stress, and poor/incomplete nutrition. During this research, we discovered that this not only occurs in the military but also in other high-performers, such as (elite) athletes and emergency responders.

  • Nutrients supporting recovery and injury prevention, underlying mechanisms, complementarity, and optimal dosage.
  • Physiological mechanisms of wear and tear, and nutritional factors.
  • Current eating habits of military personnel and athletes, regarding nutrition and supplements.


Mental health is crucial for being able to perform at a high level. Lurking issues can negatively impact performance in many ways: constant mental pressure and increased stress levels can cause psychological problems and, in the long run, result in burnout, operator syndrome, PTSD, or depression. We researched:

  • Key pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties.
  • Main problems regarding stress, sleep, and cognitive performance in mentally demanding jobs.
  • The relationship between stress, sleep, and cognitive performance and their biological mechanisms.
How to use Tabb
Administering Tabb with a meal seems most favourable for the nootropic's bioavailability. Take three tablets at breakfast and two tablets with dinner, daily.

Supplementation of Barr right after physical activity is considered most beneficial. However, it is advised to take the supplement every day at approximately the same time, ensuring a consistent concentration of nutrients.
