Mind Lab Pro®
FAQ

What is a nootropic?

Simply put, a nootropic is a brain-booster: A natural or synthetic compound that helps to enhance mental performance. Nootropics have many different mechanisms of action. They can modulate multiple brain pathways to support memory, focus, concentration, attention, motivation, relaxation, mood, alertness, stress resistance, and other aspects of cognitive function. Some nootropics also help to promote long-term brain health.

What is Mind Lab Pro®?

Mind Lab Pro® is a matrix of 11 evidence-backed, multi-tasking nootropics that are combined to target six pathways of mental performance: Brain energy, brain chemicals, brain circulation, brain regeneration, brain protection, and brain waves. Mind Lab Pro® is designed as a Universal Nootropic™ with diverse, far-ranging support of both short-term cognitive function and long-term brain health.

How does Mind Lab Pro® work?

Mind Lab Pro® is different and better than any nootropic complex that’s ever been developed, thanks to an advanced formulation strategy. Mind Lab Pro® only uses research-backed nootropics that support multiple brain pathways. By supplying these multi-tasking brain-boosters in enhanced forms at clinical range dosages, Mind Lab Pro® promotes ”100% Brainpower” mental performance that elevates your whole life.

What does Mind Lab Pro® feel like?

Unlike brain supplements that target one or two aspects of mental performance, Mind Lab Pro® is a whole-brain optimizer – formulated to promote an adaptive peak-performing mental state. Mind Lab Pro® benefits, therefore, manifest in many ways, and flex to meet any and all cognitive demands:

  • If you’re working out, you may feel more motivated and driven to excel.
  • At the office, you may notice enhanced multitasking or better single-task focus.
  • Learners may notice improved studying capacity and calm clarity during exams.
  • In competition you may notice improved strategic thinking and faster reaction times.
  • In social settings, Mind Lab Pro® may feel like relaxation, bright mood and fluid verbal skills.
  • Others may notice sharper recall, faster processing, longer attention span, etc.

As The Universal Nootropic™, Mind Lab Pro® may enhance every aspect of your life by optimizing many diverse functions of the complex organ that directs it all: Your brain.

How fast will I notice results with Mind Lab Pro®?

Many users report immediate cognitive benefits within a couple of hours of taking a 4-capsule double-serving of Mind Lab Pro®. Those taking a regular two-capsule serving size daily typically report noticeable mental performance enhancements within two weeks. For everyone, we recommend at least 30 days of consistent Mind Lab Pro® supplementation to best judge its effects.

What are Mind Lab Pro’s extended benefits?

Taking Mind Lab Pro® over an extended period of time will help to elevate and sustain overall peak mental performance. Beyond its performance-enhancing effects, supplementation with Mind Lab Pro® also nourishes the brain for long-term healthy function – helping to counter brain aging while maintaining healthy brain structure and neural plasticity. Mind Lab Pro® is the ultimate formula for supporting peak brain function now along with mental clarity and sharp memory decades later in life.

How do I take Mind Lab Pro®?

Take two Mind Lab Pro® capsules in the morning or early afternoon, preferably with food. In times of intense cognitive demands, such as before a workout, during exams, or while facing a professional deadline, Mind Lab Pro® dosage may be increased to four capsules daily for greater performance-boosting activity. Do not take more than four capsules in any 24-hour period.

Should I ”Cycle” Mind Lab Pro®?

Cycling refers to the practice of taking a supplement every day (the ”on cycle”), and then taking a break (the ”off cycle”). Cycling is believed to ”reset” the body’s built-up tolerance to a supplement, allowing that supplement to consistently work at its true full potency. We recommend cycling Mind Lab Pro® following a ”4 weeks on, 1 week off” schedule or a ”5 days on, 2 days off” schedule.

Is Mind Lab Pro® safe and free of side effects?

All 11 ingredients in Mind Lab Pro® are safe and well tolerated. But that’s just part of the story. Mind Lab Pro® is the only nootropic supplement of its kind with a clean label: No artificial colors, no preservatives, no GMO, no gluten, no caffeine and no additives. Even the capsules are clean: Premium vegan Plantcaps®. Mind Lab Pro® is 100% brain-boosting nutrition, with many ingredients in upgraded, enhanced-potency forms that are easier for the body to absorb and utilize. We take all of these quality steps to create a true Universal Nootropic™ that works for everyone, is safe and comfortable for everyone, and fits any lifestyle.

Will Mind Lab Pro® interact with my medications?

Be smart: Consult with your doctor before taking Mind Lab Pro®. Show your doctor a printout of Mind Lab Pro®’s supplement facts. It is critical to talk to your doctor before starting any supplement program; this may be especially important if you have health concerns or are taking medications. Interactions are always possible, even with Mind Lab Pro®. Also, remember that this Mind Lab Pro® website is not intended as a substitute for consulting with your doctor. This website does not provide medical advice or attempt to diagnose or treat an illness which should only be done under the direction of a healthcare professional.

What kind of quality testing goes into Mind Lab Pro®?

Mind Lab Pro® undergoes dozens of quality control and quality assurance checks before, during, and after the manufacturing process. Mind Lab Pro® is also validated by independent third party auditing company that assays finished product to ensure purity, potency, label accuracy and overall quality. To learn more about the extensive quality testing that goes into Mind Lab Pro®, visit our American manufacturing arm’s website at www.optinutra.com.

What is the Mind Lab Pro® dosage?

Mind Lab Pro® is an open-source formula with all ingredient dosages listed clearly on the label, so you know exactly what you’re putting in your body. Many Mind Lab Pro® nootropics are presented in clinically supported dosages at a regular 2-capsule serving size. Doubling to the more intensive four-capsule serving will bring the formula up to clinical-range dosage across all 11 Mind Lab Pro® ingredients.

Why are there no ”Racetams” in Mind Lab Pro®?

Racetams are a popular class of nootropics, but they don’t fit Mind Lab Pro®’s formula strategy. Racetams are lab-created synthetics; Mind Lab Pro® instead emphasizes natural and botanical nootropics. Racetams can have harsh, intensely stimulating effects; Mind Lab Pro® is designed to be a stimulant-free formula. And while racetams have a large following, their nootropic mechanisms of action are not yet well-understood – Mind Lab Pro® instead opts for more evidence-backed nootropics. Regardless, if desired, racetam-class nootropics may be taken separately – they will stack safely and effectively with the Mind Lab Pro® formula.

What are ”Standardized” Herbs, and why does Mind Lab Pro® use them?

Standardization is a process where herbs are lab-calibrated to guarantee an exact level of their active, health-promoting compounds. Many factors can affect an herb’s potency, such as poor growing seasons, time of harvest and environmental toxins. Standardization ensures that despite these variables, the herb will consistently deliver the botanical ”active ingredients” that work to support health. Since standardization supplies customized, precise levels of active compounds, it can also be used to increase an herb’s overall potency.

Why did Mind Lab Pro® switch from Bacopa monnieri 45% bacosides to full-spectrum Bacopa monnieri 24% bacosides (9 bioactives)?

Higher standardization does not necessarily equate to a better product. The method of botanical analysis may be even more important.

Previously, Mind Lab Pro® used Bacopa monnieri standardized for a minimum of 45% bacosides, as measured by Ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy. UV-vis testing is typically used as a quick and affordable test used to see if botanical compounds are within range in any given herb.

Mind Lab Pro® has now upgraded to Bacopa monnieri standardized for 24% bacosides as measured by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). Superior to UV-vis, HPLC is one of the most powerful and accurate tools in analytical chemistry, capable of separating and measuring compounds across multiple forms of botanicals, from raw herb to concentrated extract. HPLC can also quantify both desired compounds and contaminants at extremely low levels.

Mind Lab Pro®’s first Bacopa at 45% bacosides was good; our new Bacopa at 24% bacosides is better. Since our new Bacopa uses HPLC, it can be standardized with greater precision than our old UV-vis-tested Bacopa: HPLC Bacopa’s 24% bacosides is exact.

More importantly, our HPLC-standardized upgrade is now calibrated to supply the 9 bacosides found in Bacopa that are most strongly associated with nootropic activity:

  • Bacosine
  • Bacoside – A
  • Bacoside – I
  • Bacoside – II
  • Bacopasaponin C
  • Apigenin
  • Luteolin
  • Beta-sitosterol-D-glucoside
  • Jujubogenin isomer of Bacopasaponin C

There are 12 total bacosides present in Bacopa monnieri. When a Bacopa product is standardized for a general level of bacosides using UV-vis testing, it includes the 3 bacosides that are not nootropics. In other words, UV-vis testing may “water down” the total bacosides with non-nootropic constituents – potentially yielding a weaker brain supplement at a “higher” standardization that is not precisely measured.

Mind Lab Pro® switched from UV-vis measured Bacopa monnieri 45% bacosides to HPLC-measured Bacopa monnieri, full-spectrum, 24% bacosides, 9 bioactives in order to give our customers a more precisely calibrated botanical extract that is guaranteed to supply the 9 active nootropic bacosides that make Bacopa monnieri one of the best brain-boosting botanicals on the market.

What are ”Branded” Ingredients, and why does Mind Lab Pro® use them?

Branded ingredients are patented, trademarked forms of nutrients that offer some type of proprietary advantage over ”plain” nutrient forms. Some are even backed by well-designed human clinical trials demonstrating their effectiveness. Like standardized herbs, branded ingredients are typically more potent than their plain counterparts. This potency may come by using a more active form of a nutrient, a delivery system that is more advanced, or a form that is more bioavailable. Not all branded ingredients are great, but Mind Lab Pro® has taken the time to identify and source the best branded nootropics in the world.

What does Mind Lab Pro®’s “clean label” mean?

Mind Lab Pro® is the World’s Cleanest Nootropic Supplement. “Clean Label” is another way of stating this; by looking at Mind Lab Pro®’s label and supplement facts, you can see pure, premium, top-shelf ingredients and a notable absence of unnecessary additives.

Mind Lab Pro® contains no soy, egg, fish, shellfish, dairy, peanut, tree nuts, wheat, or other allergens; is non-GMO and non-irradiated; and is free of gluten, caffeine, synthetic additives, artificial colors, preservatives and banned substances.

Look under “Other Ingredients” on Mind Lab Pro®’s supplement facts, and you will only see Plantcaps®, the world’s cleanest capsule; and NuFlow® Rice Concentrate, the world’s cleanest flow agent, which is necessary for efficient, stable manufacturing. Instead of meaningless additives, Mind Lab Pro® capsules are packed to the max with research-backed, brain-boosting nootropics -- nothing more, nothing less.

Why does Mind Lab Pro® avoid artificial additives?

Sometimes additives are necessary to maintain supplement quality. Mind Lab Pro® uses one additive only: NuFlow® Rice Concentrate, which functions as a natural flow agent during the manufacturing process. Many brain supplement manufacturers use far more additives, including artificial additives that may be counterproductive to brain health. For example, some artificial colors have been shown to be neurotoxic; and some artificial preservatives have been shown to harm friendly microflora in the gut, potentially disrupting the gut-brain axis that is closely tied to healthy mood. Mind Lab Pro® feels that synthetic additives that may harm nerve and brain health have no place in a nootropic supplement.

Is Mind Lab Pro® legal?

Yes. All the ingredients in Mind Lab Pro® are safe and legal, all over the world. Mind Lab Pro® is also free of banned substances highlighted by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), so it can be taken as a safe, legal cognitive performance-enhancer by professional, amateur and collegiate athletes and gamers.

Is Mind Lab Pro® vegan?

Yes. Mind Lab Pro® is suitable for vegans, made with 100% natural vegan Plantcaps® and vegan-friendly ingredients only.

What are Plantcaps®?

Plantcaps® are the premium, natural, 100% vegan capsules that deliver Mind Lab Pro®’s 11 brain-boosting nootropics. Plantcaps® are made from pullulan, a type of natural fermented tapioca. Plantcaps® dissolve easily, completely and comfortably in the digestive system, helping to optimize absorption and utilization of Mind Lab Pro®’s nootropics. Plantcaps® also naturally supply a small amount of prebiotic nutrition that may further promote healthy, comfortable digestion. Plantcaps® are the most pure and natural capsules on the market. Some manufactures use “cellulose” capsules that look natural, but don’t be fooled – they are actually made with a semi-synthetic polymer that doesn’t fit many natural lifestyles.

How can Mind Lab Pro® be eco-friendly?

Mind Lab Pro® believes that clean supplement manufacturing should include clean environmental practices. Mind Lab Pro® bottles are 100% recyclable, made from 20% post-consumer content. We also use eco-friendly shipping practices, such as biodegradable boxes and packing peanuts.

Where possible, we use eco-friendly ingredients – such as Sharp-PS® Green Phosphatidylserine, which is produced using a patented environmentally conscious process. Plus, our BioGenesis™ B-vitamins have set a new standard in eco-friendly essentials – because they are grown in a laboratory under tightly controlled conditions, BioGenesis™ nutrients avoid the use of the pesticides, herbicides, destructive mining and massive carbon footprint that is associated with producing other vitamin and mineral forms.

What happened to the Vinpocetine and Pterostilbene that were in the last bottle of Mind Lab Pro® that I bought?

Mind Lab Pro® underwent a formula upgrade in August of 2017 that replaced vinpocetine and pterostilbene with Vitamin B9 as BioGenesis™ and Maritime Pine Bark (standardized for 95% proanthocyanidins). In adding Vitamin B9, Mind Lab Pro® now supplies a B6+B9+B12 mini-stack that includes the three most widely studied B-vitamins for brain health, all of which are needed for metabolizing the circulating homocysteine that may contribute to cognitive decline.

Vinpocetine was included in an earlier version of Mind Lab Pro® as a cerebral circulation-booster; mounting evidence suggests Maritime Pine Bark is superior – it helps enhance blood flow to the brain while supplying more diverse brain-supportive bioactivities than vinpocetine, including promoting neurogenesis and protecting the brain from the destructive effects of toxic free radicals.

Mind Lab Pro®’s recent formula upgrade reflects our dedication to always keeping the Universal Nootropic™ on the cutting-edge of scientific research, and always evolving to meet the needs of our customers.

Can I get a free sample of Mind Lab Pro®?

No… sorry. Mind Lab Pro® is a superior quality supplement with many premium and luxury ingredients. We never cut corners on quality to save money. But we do cut out all freebies and package stuffers in order to keep this exceptional formula affordable. Instead of freebies, Mind Lab Pro® is happy to offer a risk-free, ”empty bottle,” money-back guarantee – which we think far better than a few free capsules, anyway.

Where is Mind Lab Pro® made?

Mind Lab Pro® was designed and formulated in the United Kingdom; it is manufactured in a state-of-the-art, FDA-registered and GMP-certified facility in New Jersey, USA.

Use Mind Lab Pro® for 30-days (up to 1 bottle) and if you are not satisfied, simply return the empty bottle within 60 days for a prompt and full product refund (minus any shipping costs).

Why can’t I buy Mind Lab Pro® on Amazon?

We choose to not sell Mind Lab Pro® on Amazon for a few reasons. Amazon is not always discerning about which nootropics can be featured on its site, and we do not want Mind Lab Pro® to appear alongside (and therefore be associated with) low-quality junk products. Amazon is also a ”Wild West” environment in ways, where reviews are easily manipulated by jealous competitors. Finally, our MindLabPro.com website is just a far better place to buy Mind Lab Pro®, since this is the home of all the information customers are looking for to understand our formula – far more information than would be allowed on Amazon.

Is Mind Lab Pro® available at GNC or other brick-and-mortar locations?

No. Mind Lab Pro® is only available to buy at www.mindlabpro.com.
