Optimind Review – OptiMind Brain Ingredients, Side Effects & Feedbacks 5/5 (2)

OptiMind is a famous nootropic that was designed to improve your focus and energy. I was recently challenged to try OptiMind again and compare it to my favourite Mind Lab Pro. I heard about it before, but this time I gave it a full-focus and decided to make a proper review and compare it to other high-quality nootropics. So, what happened? Does it work?

OptiMind Review – Does OptiMind Work?

It’s one of the strongest nootropics for focus & energy enhancement

It improves your mood and makes you feel better. Much better

It’s affordable compared to some other expensive stacks

– It’s a bit underdosed for a serious memory improvement

– We don’t know the exact amount of every ingredient in the stack

Best nootropics of 2017 - Optimind

OptiMind was originally designed with 12 ingredients to enhance your focus & energy and to improve your mental performance. 

Their formula combines nootropics and important vitamins, which make the stack very effective with positive long-term effects on your performance.

All you have to do to achieve strong performance is to take 2 capsules of OptiMind per day and you are ready to rock the world. It takes an hour to kick in, even though you might feel the effects earlier. Don’t expect a strong kick (compared to drinking Bulletproof Coffee the immediate energy boost of OptiMind is smaller), but you’ll definitely feel the effects and soon after, your cognitive performance should improve.

OptiMind is more than a normal energy booster – it’s a stack of quality nootropics. So you should understand that it takes some time to get the most out of it. Compared to most nootropic stacks I tested and compared, OptiMind is one of the strongest and the most effective stacks. And it’s one of those that contain caffeine for an immediate energy boost.

It’s quite obvious that the company behind OptiMind invested a lot of research to create a powerful nootropic stack (more about ingredients follows below).

But does OptiMind deliver on its promises? Does it enhance your focus & energy? Does OptiMind improve your mental performance? Should you take it?

OptiMind Review

1. I’ve been testing OptiMind for about a month. Does it work?

When I recently received OptiMind, I immediately stopped taking other nootropics and supplements. I gave my body a week to get to a “normal” level and clean itself of other supplements. After a week of waiting, I started testing OptiMind.

Compared to my (so far) favourite stack Mind Lab Pro (read my review about Mind Lab Pro) it’s quite amazing how you immediately feel the increased focus and energy level after you take 2-capsules of OptiMind. I’m not sure why exactly such a difference in the short-term effect, but I’d bet it’s the caffeine that contributes to the early kick.

Usually, when you take nootropics, you don’t really feel anything (if you have not overdosed or if you don’t try a super-powerful stack or a smart drug). It takes weeks or even up to months to notice the effects of taking nootropics. Some people never really notice anything, so they stop taking them.

But with OptiMind was different – and I really liked it! 

Here is what happened:

Week 1: Since I knew OptiMind contains some powerful nootropics and caffeine, I expected a serious energy kick from the very beginning. While the effects weren’t as strong as I expected, I was still very excited how quickly OptiMind worked, how I could actually feel the (positive) effects, how my focus improved and how my mood improved. I promised myself to avoid drinking any additional coffee during the test period. And quite frankly, I didn’t really need it. OptiMind delivered the boost I needed. 

Week 2: Nothing really changed – every time I took 2 capsules of OptiMind, I felt the kick, my focus improved and I felt really good for several hours. OptiMind was designed to boost your performance, so what else could I expect?

Week 3-4: After 3 to 4 weeks of testing OptiMind, I already became a big fan of it. OptiMind jumped into my morning ritual (I usually took the capsules with my breakfast) and there was nothing to complain about. Since the OptiMind formula wasn’t designed to improve memory, I still wanted to combine it with Ginkgo Biloba, but I decided to wait.

I often mention that I have a systematic way to test, review and compare nootropics. One important step in the process is playing the dual-n-back game. As you could expect, I had a lot of fun playing the challenging game after I took OptiMind. My mood drastically improved while testing OptiMind (caffeine very positively influences my mood), so I had no issues playing the game for 20-30 minutes or even longer. Results were similar as usual, but I felt so damn’ good!

Based on the results of my test, based on the hundreds of reviews I read and based on my personal experience, I can surely say that OptiMind improved my cognitive performance, focus, and energy level. In addition, OptiMind made me feel very good and it definitely improved my mood. I cannot say it had any influence on my memory, so I’d recommend combining it with Ginkgo Biloba or other nootropics if you want to improve your memory as well.

Rationally, I cannot say if OptiMind worked better or worse compared to Mind Lab Pro or any other stack that I recommend. What I can definitely confirm is that it works differently and it was made for increasing your focus and energy.

OptiMind is a cognitive enhancer that definitely works! If you want to improve your focus and energy, go ahead! You can order OptiMind here!

2. Is it safe & recommended taking OptiMind? 

OptiMind uses some of the highest-quality ingredients I’ve come across. According to OptiMind, they analyzed over 50 years of neuroscience research to design a truly safe and effective Nootropic formula. Moreover, OptiMind is manufactured in a GMP-certified laboratory using the highest quality standards.

OptiMind screams quality, but to understand how safe it is taking OptiMind, let’s look at the ingredients.


Optimind Supplement Facts


GABA is a neurotransmitter that blocks impulses between nerve cells in the brain. Low levels of GABA may be linked to:

  • Anxiety or mood disorders
  • Epilepsy
  • Chronic pain

According to WebMD, researchers suspect that GABA may boost mood or have a calming, relaxing effect on the nervous system.


Caffeine is a chemical found in coffee, tea, cola, guarana, mate, and other products. It is most commonly used to improve mental alertness.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) 

PS may sharpen memory, slow cognitive decline, and promote a positive-minded outlook. It has shown promise for helping elderly with brain degeneration, apparently slowing the progression of memory loss while helping with mood, anxiety, socialization and mental clarity. As a result, PS is the only nootropic with an FDA-qualified claim for reducing cognitive decline risk.

Vitamin D-3

Vitamin D (ergocalciferol-D2, cholecalciferol-D3, alfacalcidol) is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus. Having the right amount of vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus are important for building and keeping strong bones.

Besides, the lack of Vitamin D-3 is often shown through low-energy levels and bad mood. I’ve been often taking Vitamin D-3 with other nootropics to keep my performance on the maximum level.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha-lipoic acid is a vitamin-like chemical called an antioxidant. Yeast, liver, kidney, spinach, broccoli, and potatoes are good sources of alpha-lipoic acid. It is also made in the laboratory for use as medicine. Some people use alpha-lipoic acid for memory loss and other issues.

Huperzine A

Huperzine A is used for Alzheimer’s disease, memory and learning enhancement, and age-related memory impairment. It is also used for treating a muscle disease called myasthenia gravis, for increasing alertness and energy, and for protecting against agents that damage the nerves such as nerve gasses.

Bacopa monnieri (Synapsa)

Bacopa has strong ties to memory performance and a long association with new learning and retention. Human research shows Bacopa may slow the rate of forgetting newly acquired knowledge. Researchers have also suggested it may accelerate mental processing, optimize cognition under stress, and promote relaxation.


Human clinical research has suggested Tyrosine may help to promote working memory under multitasking conditions and optimise mental performance under high stress, fatigue, and sleep deprivation. In addition to its reputation as a nootropic for maintaining mental performance under stress, Tyrosine has recently drawn interest as an attention & focus-oriented nootropic.


Taurine is an amino sulfonic acid, but it is often referred to as an amino acid, a chemical that is a required building block of protein. Some people use it as a supplement for treating ADHD.

Rhodiola Rosea

As an ”adaptogen” herb, it helps strengthen mental + physical stress resistance while supporting brain energy, promoting clear, calm thinking under taxing conditions. Rhodiola is used to enhance mental processing, memory, learning, attention span, mood and work capacity. It also gained fame as a mind-body performance-enhancer among Eastern Bloc era Olympic biathletes and powerlifters.


Vinpocetine has rapid uptake into the brain and has been shown to promote attention, concentration, and memory in the short term (showing benefit to memory within 2 days). Its long-term brain supportive activity appears to help with age-related brain degeneration.

Vitamin B12

Approximately 15% of adults over age 60 are deficient in B12. Low levels are tied to problems with mood and brainpower, typically in the context of age-related cognitive decline. B12, especially as methylcobalamin, helps restore levels needed for optimal cognitive function, bright mood, and mental energy. As it protects nerve sheaths, B12 also supports healthy long-term brain function.

Even though there is still a lack of long-term effect of taking some of the listed ingredients, most studies confirm the positive effects of the ingredients without having any negative side-effects when taken within the recommended dose.

I definitely recommend you to talk to your doctor before taking OptiMind capsules to be on the safe side.

However, as we can see, this nootropics stack is using high-quality supplements that are nicely stacked together. If you leave a healthy lifestyle, eat healthy food and exercise regularly, you’ll get the most out of taking OptiMind.

This is why I recommend OptiMind to everyone who wants to improve their focus and energy level!

3. How much & when should you take OptiMind?

I usually take OptiMind in the morning with my breakfast. I’d definitely recommend taking all nootropics in the morning with your breakfast (or after you wake up if you don’t eat breakfast) to get the most out of them during the day.

Please also keep in mind that OptiMind contains caffeine, which needs around 12-24 hours to get out of your body. So if you take OptiMind in the afternoon, you might experience issues with your sleep.

Normally, I would take 2 capsules/day. I also tested more (3-4), but I wouldn’t recommend it – at least not in a long-term! Just talk to your doctor before you try any nootropics.

You should feel effects of OptiMind in about 30-60 minutes and the effects should last for about 3-5 hours (based on my experience). Similar to other nootropics, you should keep on taking OptiMind for at least 1 month or longer to get the most out of it. OptiMind contains several ingredients that have proven long-term effects.

4. Can your body build up a tolerance to OptiMind?

OptiMind is no different to most nootropic stacks in terms of usability and building up a tolerance. Therefore, I’d follow the 4 weeks on, 1 week off cycle as I do with other nootropics. If you take OptiMind with other ingredients/supplements, it’s even more important to be consistent with that.

Should you have any additional questions regarding this topic, please contact OptiMind for more detailed information.

5. OptiMind vs Mind Lab Pro

I already wrote a short comparison between OptiMind and Mind Lab Pro. You can read more about it here: https://www.yourinception.com/mind-lab-pro-review/

To make a short summary: Mind Lab Pro is definitely one of the most-known nootropic stacks on the market. It has a very potent formula with well-researched ingredients. It is caffeine free, non-GMO, soy-free, allergen free, gluten free and vegan-friendly. Besides, the company shares the exact amount of each ingredient in the stack which is not true for OptiMind. Mind Lab Pro is a great nootropic that improves your memory, focus, and overall cognitive performance.

The main disadvantage of Mind Lab Pro compared to OptiMind is the lack of an energy-booster, which means that you feel no energy kick after you take Mind Lab Pro. I also felt no real improvement of my mood when I took Mind Lab Pro.

So, if you are searching for a nootropic that can deliver overall cognitive improvement with the focus on memory, go with Mind Lab Pro. 

If you need the more straightforward effect of an increased focus, mood, and energy, try OptiMind.

6. OptiMind vs Lumonol

Lumonol combines a mixture of nootropics for energynootropics for focus and nootropics for memory, which makes it a strong competitor of OptiMind.

The blend of ingredients in Lumonol is fairly strong which results in quickly increased focus and energy. Lumonol contains Guarana instead of Caffeine in OptiMind. Besides, there is a not-so-well researched Noopept in Lumonol, which could be the reason why you go with OptiMind instead of Lumonol. Oh, and Lumonol is only available in the USA.

I have a hard time comparing both stacks because they are quite different in terms of ingredients they use, but they provide similar effects.

If you are based outside USA, then you should forget about Lumonol if you don’t want to bug your friends to bring Lumonol to where you live.

If you need a safer formula backed up with more research, I’d recommend OptiMind. If you need probably stronger, but slightly less-researched formula with potential negative side-effects, try out Lumonol. 

Since all ingredients you can find in both stacks could have a different effect on each individual, my best advice is to try several stacks, stick with them for a month and then decide which works the best for you!

7. OptiMind Reviews – Feedbacks of users

I guess one of the first things you check before buying a nootropic are the reviews of users. I checked out about 5-10 blog posts about OptiMind –  most of them are reliable and written by people I’ve been following for quite some time and I trust. Then I checked a lot of comments people left on different sites, I checked Amazon reviews and I searched for other reviews and comments including those on the home page of OptiMind.

The majority of people definitely recommends taking OptiMind. Sure, each of us has different preferences and we need nootropics to help us achieve different goals. Also, nootropics have different effects on each individual, so keep that in mind.

I could easily say that more than 80% of people (if not even more) had a very positive experience with OptiMind.

One verified customer from Amazon just wrote:

I’ve taken this for almost a year. The enhancements to my focus and energy are amazing! If you ever need a little boost to get through the day, this is what you need.

Most critiques came from people who had issues with the customer support. As far as I know, those issues have been solved and you shouldn’t expect any of them in the future.

I’d advise you to be careful with reading feedbacks when it comes to understanding if OptiMind works or not – you need to do a proper 1-month test to be able to evaluate that.

OptiMind definitely works well for me, that’s why I honestly recommend it. If only that was true for all nootropics I had tried…

8. Where can you buy OptiMind & how much does it cost?

If you decided to improve your cognitive performance to another level, let me share with you where can you buy OptiMind.

The best place to order OptiMind is their website. There you can also get your free trial, but keep in mind that it only includes about 10 capsules. This is enough to get an understanding of how OptiMind works, but to see the real results, 30-60 capsules are definitely recommended.

1 Package (32 capsules)of OptiMind costs around +-50$ + shipping (£50 / EUR) and it is one of the most affordable stacks on the market. The reason behind such a price is that the company 100% focuses on the affiliate marketing which is not really money intensive.

If you want to, you can order OptiMind also on amazon.com.

They ship it to the USA, to most countries in EU, Canada, Australia, to the UK and to some other countries as well. You can find the whole list on their website.

By the way, if you subscribe or order OptiMind on their website, you can expect special offers and discounts that they often offer.

Check out the website, try out OptiMind and let me know how it works for you! I’m eager to hear your feedback!
