Try the new Nitrofocus brainwave entrainment tool without charge today

I've mentioned my friend Karl Moore and his colleagues at Inspire3 on this blog before. They create cutting-edge products such as the Brain Evolution System and Brain Salon, which use the power of brainwave entrainment to help users to achieve a particular mental state.

Well, they have just released their latest product onto the market, and to celebrate the launch I've been authorized to let you "test-drive" it yourself for free.

The product in question is called Nitrofocus. As the name suggests, it's designed to help put you into a state of total focus: get more done in less time, enter 'The Zone', clear your inbox, blast through work, and even zip through household chores - all faster and with more intense concentration than ever before.

For those who may not have experienced Inspire3's products before, Nitrofocus is an audio MP3, but it's not self-hypnosis or anything like that. As mentioned above, it uses a technique called brainwave entrainment to help users to achieve the brainwave profile associated with a desired mental state.

And as a reader of this blog, until the end of August you can download a 15-minute session from Nitrofocus, free and without obligation, to experience exactly what it can do for you. If focusing on your writing (or anything else) is sometimes difficult for you, I highly recommend giving it a try.

How Nitrofocus Works

So how do Nitrofocus and the other brainwave entrainment products in Inspire3's range work?

Various techniques are used, but perhaps the most important is binaural beats. To explain this, I need to start with a bit of theory.

If you've studied psychology (which I have - a long time ago!), you'll know that scientists can measure the electrical activity in our brains using a device called an electroencephalogram (EEG). It has been known for a long time that different mental states are associated with different patterns of electrical activity.

Someone who is fully awake and alert will exhibit relatively high frequency, low amplitude, electrical activity patterns (15-40Hz), known as beta waves. Someone resting or meditating will produce lower frequency alpha waves of 9 to 14Hz. This state is often associated with creativity, and is the frequency that the Self Development Network's Writers Block CD (which also uses binaural beats) aims to entrain. Below that are theta waves (5-8Hz), associated with daydreaming and free-flowing thoughts - this is also a highly 'creative' frequency. And finally, there are delta waves (1.5 to 4Hz), the lowest frequency waves that occur in sleep.

Unfortunately, you can't just entrain someone's mind by playing them sounds at these frequencies, as in general they are below most people's hearing thresholds. However, it has been discovered that if you play sounds of slightly different frequencies to each ear, they combine within the brain to create a low frequency resonance. If you play a tone of 320Hz in one ear and 330Hz in the other, for example, it will create a resonance at a frequency of 10Hz - the difference between them. 10Hz is an alpha wave frequency; so by using this method, your brain can be entrained into a high alpha state.

This does mean that to get the best results from Nitrofocus you should really listen to it via headphones so that the binaural beat effect can work optimally. It's not essential, however, as other entrainment techniques are used as well, and if you listen via stereo speakers you will still get some of the binaural effect.

I hope you will download the Nitrofocus sample session yourself while it's on this free offer. I'm a big fan of the other products from Inspire3, especially Brain Salon and the Brain Evolution System, and look forward to putting Nitrofocus through its paces in the coming weeks as well!

I'd love to hear any thoughts you may have about Nitrofocus and brainwave entrainment more generally - please do post them as comments below.
