Untapped Mind is a nootropic supplement that promises to improve concentration, boost memory, and stimulate your cognitive function. It’s manufactured for Florida company Pristine Nature. This is more or less a multivitamin with a special nootropic blend included for additional benefits. This is something which should have a noticeable impact for most people. A lot of people should get some use out of this product, even if you’re only looking for a subtle boost in your day to day cognitive abilities.
Untapped Mind contains the following ingredients: DHA, DMEA, L-Glutamine, Bacopin, L-pyroglutamic Acid, Choline, N-Acetyl Tyrosine, Bilberry Fruit, Gamma Aminobutyric Acid, Grape Skin extract, Vinpocetine, Trace Lyte Electrolye concentrate, Huperzine A, Boron, Vanadium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Biotin, Calcium, Iron, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Potassium
Untapped Mind features 21 vitamins and minerals, the amino acid selenomethionine, and a special blend developed for Pristine Nature. There’s also molybdenum, an element found in some metals and minerals. The blend includes well known ingredients like choline, green tea extract, DHA, and phosphatidylserine. Phosphatidyl-based supplements are often made from vegetables like cabbage or soy. Unfortunately Pristine Nature doesn’t tell us where the phosphatidylserine here comes from. However, it’s key in maintaining cellular function. It’s supposed to promote communication within brain cells and help develop neutrotransmitters. Like several other ingredients, it can improve learning and memory. The effects are often subtle for healthy adults, since their brain tends to be in good health by default. There are newer versions of phosphatidylserine being studied, and their effectiveness is often considered equal to current versions. It’s not known which version is used by Pristine Nature.
- Servings are an appropriate size. The vitamin C is slightly higher than necessary, but everything else looks good. Although some research says increased vitamin C can be good, other research says there isn’t any extra benefit to taking over 400 percent of your daily value for C. Adding more vitamin D instead would have balanced this out better.
- This is a combination nootropic and multivitamin to ensure you get maximum benefit for your mind and body.
- Doesn’t list the amounts or sources of each ingredient for the proprietary blend. It’s common to see some of the ingredients, like DHA and green tea extract, but we don’t know how much of each will be in each serving of this supplement. There are 19 distinct nootropics and that could be too many.
- The formula could use minor tweaks for optimization. Aside from the unknown quantities in the proprietary blend, some vitamins and minerals have amounts that could be changed without negative impacts. Decreasing the vitamin B6 and increasing the calcium, for example.
Untapped Mind is a decent supplement to add into your daily diet. The vitamins and minerals make it attractive even for people who don’t understand nootropics that well. The proprietary blend and the amino acid inclusion should serve most people well. Some reviewers have said this supplement is subtle, which is normally good, but that could also be a sign of insufficient amounts of certain ingredients. Beginners will enjoy this product most, as a result. Still, almost everyone who takes it enjoys it, including more advanced nootropic users.
