When Mind Lab Pro arrived at my office I was more than excited to get started on it. Considering the reputation it has already gained as one of the stand-out products in the category of nootropic supplements, it’s not something I wanted to leave on the desk to sit for a while.
Nootropic ingredients are some of the more proven in supplement science, which makes them all the more interesting. While other dietary supplements might take a while to work, or require you to put in a lot of effort on your part as well, the best Nootropics get to work quickly and you can actually experience the effects directly.
It’s not like looking in a mirror, waiting for the fat to fall off or the muscles to grow. The benefits of a quality nootropic quite literally go to your head, and they can make a big improvement to your cognitive power, memory formation, mood, energy levels, concentration and even physical brain health!!!
Let’s see how Mind Lab Pro does!
Benefits of Mind Lab Pro
From the formula of ingredients and the material from the manufacturers, you should experience the following beneficial effects from using Mind Lab Pro:
- Improved Memory Formation – long-term, short-term and working memory
- Accelerated Learning
- Improved Problem Solving Skills
- Clearer Decision Making
- Reduced Stress and Anxiety Levels – and Improved Concentration during Periods of Stress
- Lower Mental and Physical Fatigue
- Optimized Brain Health
- Attenuation of Age-Related Cognitive Decline
Some of these benefits are essentially products of others but it is useful to highlight the full potential of a nootropic supplement. These are close to the original intended uses of a nootropic supplement, which were outlined years ago when the first nootropic Piracetam was discovered.
Many supplements rely on short-term effects of stimulants and apply the term ‘nootropic’ as some sort of umbrella under which they all share equal respect. Mind Lab Pro uses no stimulants and in fact includes only ‘true’ nootropic components. I’ll go through the formula next.
How Does Mind Lab Pro Work?
The product works by using a blend of true nootropic ingredients – many of them synergistic with one another – to increase your cognitive function. Opti-Nutra – the manufacturer – calls them the Mind Lab’s 11 brain optimizers:
Cognizin (citicoline) 250mg – also known as CDP-choline or citicholine, Cognizin is the patented version. It increases both Choline and Uridine in the brain, thereby increasing acetylcholine levels (principal neurotransmitter) and cognitive function along with it. Improved memory formation and reduction of age related decline are clear benefits.
Hericium Erinaceus / Lion’s Mane Mushroom 500mg – a special mushroom, aka Yambushitake, which can increase neurogenesis. That’s a fancy word for new nerve and neuron growth, something previously thought impossible! This nerve growth stimulator adds more pathways for the brain to use, thereby boosting cognitive function significantly.
Phosphatidylserine (soy free) 50mg – PS is just easier to say! It is essential for proper brain function. We have a lot naturally, but supplementing will optimize nerve cell health and neurotransmitter activity. Again, PS slows the effects of ageing in the brain.
Rhodiola Rosea 50mg – a stress relieving herb that clears your mind to concentrate on what’s important. Supports dopamine and serotonin and decreases cortisol. Overall effect is improved cognitive performance, better sleep, less stress and improved mood generally.
L-Theanine 125mg – an amino acid that may just explain all the benefits of green tea. Extracted and concentrated in a pill it can increase alpha waves in the brain, associated with improved attention, learning abilities and happiness!
N-Acetyl-l-Tyrosine 175mg – they don’t put this in pre-workouts for nothing. It reduces the symptoms of acute stress and allows you to focus when the going gets tough. A perfect partner for the more long term stress reducing adaptogens in the blend.
Bacopa Monnieri 150mg – improvements in working memory are a given with Bacopa. Learning speed and information processing speed up essentially. Also, long term memory formation is improved and Bacopa acts as an antioxidant for the brain, cleaning out the free radicals and garbage remnants of oxidation which can ultimately cause degenerative effects.
Pterostilbene 500mcg – found in the same places as Resveratrol – grapes, blueberries and wine – Pterostilbene is considered the Resveratrol 2.0. It is much more bioavailable and is therefore absorbed much more readily by the body. It relieves anxiety, thereby improving focus and cognition. It’s also another antioxidant.
Vinpocetine 6mg – increases your alertness, ability to deal with stress and complicated scenarios. Long term and short term memory are both improved. Much of its strength comes from its cerebral vasodilation effects – increasing blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to the brain, not to mention the other ingredients in the Mind Lab blend.
Huperzine-A 200mcg – increases acetylcholine activity by inhibiting the enzyme that depletes it. Preventing acetylcholinesterase from depleting the principal neurotransmitter in the brain enhances learning ability and memory formation in people young and old.
Vitamin B6 2.5mg – this vitamin is involved in more processes in the body than you could count. One principal effect though is that of serotonin and dopamine production. It slows cognitive decline and lowers levels of the bad-guy acid homocysteine in the brain. And, not enough of us get enough of it!
Comments on the Formula
First off, every ingredient’s inclusion weight is listed. That’s something that none of the competition does.
Secondly, there are stronger dosages in Mind Lab Pro than any other product I’ve used or researched. How do I know if the others are proprietary blend? Well, they still have to list total inclusion weights, even of the proprietary blends, so you can still tell Mind Lab Pro is stronger.
The extent of proven ingredients in the Mind Lab is excellent. It’s surprising to see such a complete, clinically dosed formula. For the price point, it’s one of my best finds!
Are There Any Side Effects?
No side effects that I have experienced, and looking in depth into all the ingredients there is no reason why there should be. Of course, people with certain medical conditions, taking other medication and pregnant/nursing mothers should ask their doctor before getting any supplement, including Mind Lab Pro.
Take Mind Lab Pro with food to get the full benefit.
Is There a Guarantee?
Yes, you can even use it for 30 days and if you aren’t happy, get a refund. This will not be necessary though, I can attest to that!
My Experience With Mind Lab Pro
I like using nootropic products; they are one of the better sectors of the supplement manufacturing industry, with respect to the efficacy of dosage and ingredients that is included in the formula.
What I mean there is that many of the compounds, herbs, amino acids and cholinergic ingredients found in nootropic products have been proven extensively, many of them in human clinical studies.
So when I got the chance to try out Mind Lab Pro, I jumped at the chance. I’d already had a sneak peek at the formula a while ago and it seemed ambitious to me considering its depth, breadth and potency compared with the competition nootropics. Having received the product in the flesh, so to speak, the original intended formula has been used.
So Opti-Nutra haven’t made any compromises and stuck to their original design. I thought the price would surely rocket up what with all the ingredients, but their special offers are as good or better than any other company as well!
With the top recipe in the business and great value for money, Mind Lab Pro has jumped far ahead of all the competing products available in my opinion.
After a month of use, the benefits are clearly there. My thoughts are clear, I’m less agitated and stressed. I can put in long working days with less mental fatigue, and my concentration lasts a lot longer. The best is my short term memory though. I used to struggle with my working memory, retaining information from research or just a documentary on TV.
This is why I’ve always looked for decent nootropic supplements. Mind Lab Pro has caused very real improvements to my working memory. I’ve picked up my subscription to New Scientist again, because I can focus on it and understand it even after a long tiring day.
This is enough for me but I can’t wait for the longer term benefits that come from the Adaptogens in the blend.
