MADMONQ is marketed as a brain booster for elite gamers. While it has a pretty standardized nootropic formula, it does deliver some incredible performance. But do I recommend it? And can it really help egamers? Let’s check out my full MADMONQ review.

MADMONQ REVIEW

MADMONQ is promoted as the 1st brain booster for elite egamers. If you are an egamer like myself, you understand how important it is to stay focused, have the energy and the brainpower during intense games. 

madmonq 2.0 review

So far, many egamers have been using popular energy drinks that provide the needed energy. But energy drinks are extremely unhealthy, the effects don’t last long, and when the effects wind off, people usually experience a mild crash. 

MADMONQ is an alternative to energy drinks that is much healthier and provides long-term positive effects. But is it strong enough? Can it compete with energy drinks?

The team behind MADMONQ developed a brain supplement using quite a standard formulation of nootropic compounds. Nootropics are natural and synthetic ingredients that enhance cognition, focus, energy and protect you from stress and anxiety.

MADMONQ was developed by Singularity Labs in the Czech Republic.

Obviously, the brand saw significant potential in the “gamers market,” and that’s why they’re focusing all their marketing activities on this market. But does MADMONQ work?

MADMONQ was designed to help you with:

  1. Focus & reaction times
  2. Energy
  3. Memory
  4. Stress-control
  5. Drive
  6. Recovery

A quick overview shows a promising product.

If you add a beautifully designed package (definitely one of the nicest packages I’ve ever seen), outstanding reviews, and quite an amazing taste of the pill (read further), you potentially have a supplement that could definitely be one of the best nootropic stacks ever developed.

What’s more – the brand recently optimized its formula, so they are currently offering Madmonq 2.0 edition.

But is the 2nd edition better than the first one? And is this brain supplement worth your money?

My Experience With MADMONQ

Let me share my experience with MADMONQ.

When I first received the package and opened it up, I was pleasantly surprised.

The whole packing is outstanding, well-designed, user-friendly, and it definitely makes you want to buy this supplement. Honestly, their 2nd edition seems even better!

I was lucky enough to test their first and second edition (MADMONQ 2.0) of the product. Here is what happened during my test. 

Test Week 

Day 1: I started the test by taking 1 tablet (pill) in the morning. About 30 minutes later, I felt motivated, focused, and my mood improved. 

I expected such results because of my previous research, but I was still very happy. There was no crash, no jitters, and I stayed in a good mood for about 2-3 hours.

I decided to play the latest edition of Call Of Duty (Modern Warfare) during the test, and I was crushing it! :)

Day 2: I decided to take 2 capsules at the same time on the second day (bad idea, btw) and played some games.

Playing games was quite fun – I felt extremely good (despite not a good K/D ratio) and very motivated.

But there were some issues that I didn’t feel on the first day. I felt more nervous and even anxious at moments.

Taking 2 capsules at the same time was too much for me. You could try it out, but I suggest starting with 1 capsule per day. 

Day 3 – 7: During all other testing days, I’ve decided to stick to 1 tablet per day, which I took in the morning before working on my daily tasks. I played a couple of more games of Battlefield and CoD, but I also spent quite some time working.

I was quite focused, most of the time in a good mood, and I didn’t feel any jitters.

So, I spent quite a fun week and was positively surprised by the effects.

MADMONQ Ingredients

MADMONQs formula is non-GMO, vegan, sugar-free, without artificial colors and flavors. It’s open-sourced and contains high-quality ingredients. 

MADMONQ ingredients

The MADMONQ formula contains 14 ingredients, which are:

  • Caffeine, 155 mg
  • Schisandra, 300 mg
  • Spectra, 50 mg
  • Choline, 50 mg
  • N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine, 50 mg
  • L-Theanine, 60 mg
  • L-Tyrosine, 80 mg
  • Siberian Ginseng root, 1000 mg
  • Brahmi leaf extract, 21,2 mg
  • Rhodiola root extract, 20 mg
  • Blueberry fruit extract, 10 mg
  • Vitamin B6, 3,5 mg
  • Vitamin B12, 50 micrograms
  • Zinc, 2,5 mg

Let’s check the ingredients in detail.

Caffeine

Caffeine is a powerful stimulant that improves energy, physical strength, and endurance. [*] It enhances brain performance and ensures prolonged wakefulness. [*] It also improves well-being, so it is great for egamers.

MADMONQ contains 155 mg of caffeine, which is quite a high dosage.

Schisandra

Schisandra berries (Schisandra Chinensis) is a fruit-bearing vine traditionally used to enhance performance and reduce stress. [*] The effects of Schisandra are mild, and the evidence is lacking, but it holds the potential to work as a potent adaptogen.

Spectra

Spectra is a plant-based formula of 29 herbs, vegetables, and fruits that optimizes cellular help and protects the brain from free radical production. [*] The optimal daily dosage is 100 mg, but MADMONQ contains only 50 mg.

Choline

Choline is a building block of cell membranes and is instrumental in affecting the brain’s ability to produce acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter important for memory. [*]

N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine

L-carnitine is an amino acid that is involved in mitochondrial oxidation. Supplementing L-Carnitine may help with depression and fatigue. [*][*] 50 mg of MADMONQ is probably too low to get any effects from ALCAR.

L-Theanine

L-theanine is an amino acid that promotes relaxed focus and enhances cognitive performance. [*] By increasing GABA levels, it also decreases stress and anxiety. [*]

60 mg of L-theanine is a low dosage but high enough to get some benefits.

L-Tyrosine

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that produces two important neurotransmitters – dopamine and noradrenaline. [*] [*] Supplementing NALT enhances cognition in animals and it promotes cognitive flexibility in healthy adults [*].

The optimal daily dosage is 500-2000 mg.

Siberian Ginseng

Ginseng is a powerful plant with many cognitive benefits. Supplementing Ginseng improves mental health and social functioning. It also has neuroprotective properties. [*][*]

Brahmi

Bacopa monnieri (Brahmi) is an adaptogen herb used in traditional Ayurveda medicine. [*] Bacopa is one of the strongest nootropics for improving memory, and it is effective for decreasing stress and anxiety.

Rhodiola Rosea

Rhodiola Rosea is an adaptogen herb known for its adaptogenic and anti-fatigue properties. [*] Supplementing a quality Rhodiola Rosea extract enhances cognition and improves well-being. [*] It may also help with anxiety and depression. [*]

Other ingredients in MADMONQ include:

  • Blueberry fruit extract
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin B6
  • ZINC

The MADMONQ formula contains some of the most potent and effective nootropics on the market. However, many nootropics are either underdosed or pretty low-quality. In terms of overall supplement quality, MADMONQ does not excel. However, as a nootropic stack, it does much better. 

MADMONQ Side Effects

I was taking MADMONQ 2.0 tablets for more than a week. During my test period, I experienced no adverse side effects when sticking to the recommended dose of 1 tablet.

However, taking 2 tablets at the same time made me slightly nervous. This is probably due to too much caffeine, so I suggest sticking to the recommended dose of 1 tablet.

So, if you follow the rules, don’t expect any negative side effects.

MADMONQ Dosage

The recommended dose is 1-2 tablets per day, but do not take them together.

I recommend taking one in the morning (after your breakfast). You can take the second one if you feel you need it, but take it before 2 PM. The formula contains a lot of caffeine, so you don’t want caffeine negatively impacting your sleep. 

That’s how you’ll ensure maximum performance, you’ll avoid side effects, and you’ll get rid of caffeine in your body before you go to bed.

Where To Buy MADMONQ?

If you want to try MADMONQ, you can do it in their official web store.

Verdict

We believe MADMONQ has developed one of the tastiest tablets in the field of nootropics. It has a fantastic package, a beautifully designed website, and a great market fit. But does MADMONQ work?

When you take it, you feel an energy kick, and there are no jitters that usually follow drinking coffee. Your mood will improve, and you’ll be more motivated.

When it comes to nootropic ingredients, the formula definitely improved from the first edition, but it is far from perfect. The supplement is great for gamers, especially because it represents a great alternative to energy drinks. As a nootropic supplement, there are better products on the market.

  1. Celkom spokojná :) trochu je chuť divná Ale dá sa to :) myslela som si že budem cítiť väčšiu energiu ale inak som spokojná …

  2. Thanks for this review. I couldn’t find a list with all the ingredients with their specific amount anywhere else. Unfortunately, from my experience 150mg at once is just too much.
