Mind Flex Ingredients
Mind Flex includes the following ingredients: Dwarf Morning Glory, Indian Valerian, Ashwagandha, Jatamansi, Pearl, Greater Galangal, Licorice, Indian Tinospora, and Gotu Kola.
Mind Flex is an herbal blend which features popular Ayurvedic herbal extracts such as Gotu Kola, Ashwagandha, Indian Valerian and Licorice.
Ashwagandha, an ancient Indian herb, has been shown to possess remarkable stress-relieving properties (relieving anxiety and stress), as well as excellent protective effects on the nervous system. Research has studied its affects as an alternative treatment for degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. Due to its powerful antioxidant properties, it aids in protecting brain cells and the nervous system from free radicals damage and hence numerous age-related conditions. Emerging evidence suggests that Ashwagandha may have anti-cancer benefits as well. Side effects include stomach upset, vomiting and diarrhea whereas its long term use effects are still investigated.
Gotu Kola is currently used for a wide array of conditions, such as fatigue, anxiety, circulation problems, depression, urinary tract infection, stomach ulcers, diabetes and others. It contains no caffeine. Some of its most important active ingredients work by improving peripheral circulation and hence brain blood circulation. Research has revealed that Gotu Kola may enhance mental functions such as concentration and memory. Potential side effects include nausea, stomach upset, itching or drowsiness.
The manufacturer recommends taking 1-2 tablets twice daily. The lack of consumer reviews makes it impossible for us to assess the effectiveness of the formula. No side effects are mentioned for Mind Flex.
- 100% natural herbal ingredients;
- There is a 30 day money back guarantee available (full refund on the purchase price).
- No side effects mentioned (however the ingredients taken separately may cause unwanted effects);
- Lack of consumer reviews;
- The manufacturer does not mention if the herbal extracts are standardized (standardized extracts are usually used in clinical tests and are proven safe and effective).
Marketed as a 100% herbal dietary supplement, Mind Flex promises to deliver increased mental ability in terms of learning, retention and recall as well as to create the proper climate to foster a stress-free, creative, flexible and problem solving oriented thinking.
The ingredients contained by the formula were shown to possess such benefits; however the product fails to convince how the combination will achieve the goals set forth by the manufacturer. No consumer reviews are available either; hence a fair assessment of Mind Flex is hard to be made.
While we can’t argue that for some people the formulation might actually prove effective, we have to advise caution and to suggest you seek the advice of a specialist prior to use.
