OptiMind claims to be America’s number one nootropic supplement. It’s a brain booster meant to support clarity, focus, and general cognitive function. This product is created by Texas company AlternaScript, who says they want to be the future of health. They have 3 supplement products and are fairly active on Facebook. Their websites are confusing to navigate if you want any information beyond the basics. Many links result in errors or don’t go anywhere. Their supplements are made in GMP certified facilities, as is standard for any reputable company.
OptiMind contains the following ingredients: L-Tyrosine, Taurine, Phosphotidylserine, Bacopa Extract, Gamma-aminobutyric Acid, Caffeine, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Vinpocetine, Sulbutiamine, Huperzine A, Vegetarian Capsule (HPMC), Calcium Silicate, Magnesium Stearate, Silicon Dioxide, Titanium Dioxide (color), contains: Soy.
OptiMind is a 12 ingredient formula with 2 vitamins and 10 nootropics. Their proprietary blend includes ingredients like L-Tyrosine, caffeine, and Huperzine A (via Huperzia serrata extract). Unfortunately AlternaScript doesn’t list how much of each ingredient is in here. They also seem to have a typo about the serving size of their proprietary blend. Each capsule should have 658 mg of the blend. GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is an interesting inclusion because while people think it has benefits, it isn’t absorbed well by the body when taken orally.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid used in various products and can be found in a lot of our foods. People take L-Tyrosine for depression, ADHD, narcolepsy, improving alertness, alleviating stress, and more. It confers a variety of brain boosting effects, and is great for penetrating the blood-brain barrier. Overall the formula appears to increase cognitive health, stimulate you with caffeine, and prevent undue stress from sinking in.
- High potency formula with some familiar ingredients.
- Contains 385 IU of vitamin D per serving, which is important because of how many people have vitamin D deficiencies. More supplements should include 300 to 400 IU of vitamin D since it works so well for so many people. Vitamin D is inexpensive to get and provides essential benefits.
- Not very beginner friendly because of the formula’s potency. Too much may result in jitters or crashes, likely because of the caffeine content. The exact amount is not listed by the company.
- Extremely expensive (about double the price of average nootropics) and no specific money back guarantee if the product doesn’t work for you. The company does offer a free trial with free shipping, though, which may be a better policy.
AlternaScript mentions that some results appear within a few hours, while many benefits are long term in nature. Some of the brain boosting effects could take up to 12 weeks to reach their peak efficiency. Various people think it’s a great alternative to coffee, as this supplement seems to deliver consistent energy throughout the day. Like many products, this doesn’t work for everyone. Some people don’t experience notable results, or results other than what they were expecting. This tends to be normal in small amounts, given individual biochemical differences. The majority of OptiMind users are satisfied, and some started with the free trial of 10 capsules to make sure it worked for them.
