Ortho Mind is a natural supplement marketed to help enhance cognitive function in adults. The manufacturing company, Advanced Orthomolecular Research, claims the formula also helps reduce mental fatigue caused by mental stress and generally supports cognitive function.

The formula, formerly known as Advanced Cognitive Support is designed for adult use only. Pregnant and nursing women are advised not to use the product. Also people suffering from conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, renal/kidney, people who plan to increase physical activity and people following a low protein diet should consult a healtcare provider.

Advanced Orthomolecular Research (or AOR) is a Canadian company which develops, manufactures and sells natural dietary supplements and vitamins. The company product portfolio currently comprises more than 500 different products designed to assist with a wide spectrum of health conditions from asthma and diarrhea to immune system support and brain function enhancers.

Ortho Mind Ingredients

Ortho Mind includes the following ingredients: R(+)-lipoic acid, Panax ginseng (30:1 extract), Bacopa Monnieri extract (50% Baccosides A&B), ALCAR Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Citicoline, Arginine Pyroglutamate, Pantothenic Acid (from Calcium d-Pantothenate), and microcrystalline cellulose.

Product Features

Ortho Mind is a combination of herbal ingredients, amino-acids and other nutrients designed to support and enhance cognitive function and assist with stress. The product is advertised to be free of wheat, gluten, corn, dairy, nuts, soy, eggs, fish, shellfish or any animal byproduct.

Citicoline (or CDP-Choline) is a naturally synthesized by the body from Choline. It has been shown by various studies to possess nootropic properties. Scientists believe its brain benefits reside in Citicolin’s role as a brain phospholipid booster, thus enhancing the brain’s natural ability to synthesize phospholipids. Phospholipids in turn (particularly Phosphatidylcholine (PC) and Phosphatidylserine (PS)) are essential components of brain cell membranes. Their presence ensures for normal responsiveness of the brain to neurotransmitter signals. Additionally, Citicoline was shown to play a role in the process of synthesis of key neurotransmitters, including acetylcholine, norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin many of which work to regulate key brain functions (such as memory, focus and learning).

Panax Ginseng is commonly used today for improving thinking, concentration, memory and work efficiency, as well as physical stamina and athletic endurance. It is also used to restore deteriorated brain functions, in patients with Alzheimer’s for example. Prolonged use is potentially unsafe. Side effects may include low blood pressure, headache, diarrhea, itching, rash, dizziness, mood changes and loss of appetite.

The manufacturer recommends taking 6 capsules daily. Side effects include gastrointestinal discomfort (such as diarrhea), insomnia, anxiety, headaches, nausea, dry mouth and fatigue.

    I desparately needed something…and found Ortho-Mind. I had a stroke some years ago, lost some memory and have always suffered from chronic PVC’s in my heart beat. Here’s my review after one bottle of 180 caps taken of the Ortho-Mind product from AOR.

    Helped short term memory about 50%.
    Helped long term memory about 30%.
    Helped in focus/attention deficit about 30%.
    Iradicated PVC’s….95% for sure.
    Improved (50k) bicycle endurance by 100%.
    Lowered libido (sex drive) by 50%.
    Having said that about libido:
    It “enhanced erection hardness” by 70% and longevity by about 30%.
    Restored stroke injuries of alertness, ambition and ability to take action on projects to be done:
    I would measure those about 50% increase.
    Encreased depression: awe…50%…sorry.
    Trying to figure out how to counteract the depression issue now. Will let you know.
