I’ve always been fascinated by complex vitamins and minerals. I love the idea that we will all have to take one pill per day to be fit, smart, and healthy one day. Until this happens, let’s use the effective supplements that leading supplement brands developed for us.

One of them is Total Human by Onnit. This “all-in-one” supplement contains crucial minerals, vitamins, nootropics, and other compounds that can optimize your performance and health. Based on my experience with nootropics, it is one of the most advanced such supplements on the market.

But taking too many supplements is not for everyone. So in this Onnit Total Human review, I’ll dissect this popular supplement, looked at the ingredients, dosages, and I’ll give you my final recommendation. 

Onnit Total Human Overview

Total Human is one of the most complex and advanced supplements on the market. It consists of over ten individual products, and it contains a whole range of vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, nootropics, and other potent ingredients.

It was designed to help you:

  1. Achieve ultimate cognitive performance and mental clarity
  2. Get high-quality nutrients
  3. Offer 24/7 brain and body support
  4. Facilitate the taking of supplements
  5. Protect your immune system

In general, it consists of 2 main products: Total Human Day Pack & Night Pack.

Together, both products contain all crucial ingredients that you need for optimal body and brain performance.

Even though Total Human consists of many ingredients, it’s relatively affordable compared to buying all those ingredients separately. Since it comes in sachets, it also very convenient for daily taking. Instead of opening multiple bottles, you only have to open 2 sachets per day and swallow all the pills that are in. 

There is no doubt that Onnit made Total Human stand out from the competition with its unique formulation. But it made me wonder – with SO MANY ingredients that you intake with a single dose of Total Human stack, will this cause any side effects? And is it safe?

Well, it became my mission to find that out.

My Experience

It happens pretty often that I receive a nootropic stack, put it on my table, do quick research, and don’t feel like trying it out.

Sometimes it is because of the ingredients, the other times it’s because of the dosages,…

But with Total Human, I couldn’t wait to open it up and try it out.

Total Human Supplement Review

So I immediately stopped taking other supplements, and I put all my focus on Total Human.

Test Week

Compared to many other supplements and nootropic stacks, Total Human is not a classical one. It doesn’t really allow you to play with the daily dosage (by taking a few more or fewer capsules), but it tells you: Here is what you need to take in the morning, and here is what you need to take in the evening.

That’s it. Since the dosages are pretty much optimized for an adult, you can bet you can immediately feel the benefits.

And I did feel the benefits the very first day I took it. I was more focused; I felt more alert and even more energized.

I even felt a small energy kick around 30-60 minutes after I took Total Human day support. If this was a placebo or not, it’s hard to say, but I felt the same kick every time I took it.

Since Total Human day support doesn’t contain only Alpha Brain, but also several other supplements such as Shroom Tech Support, I expected such positive effects.

During the same week, I also tried Total Human Night Pack, which was also quite effective. It is a bit harder for me to notice the real effects of sleep supplements, but based on how I slept during this week, I was positively surprised.

But more importantly, based on my experience, Total Human is a complete product that delivers excellent results. Taking the capsules is easy (you don’t have to think about how much of X and how much of Y you should take), and it does offer a whole range of supplements.

On the other side, you have to take all the ingredients every time, and it’s tough to stack it with some other supplements. Total Human just wasn’t designed to work as one of many supplements on the market, but it is instead an all-around supplement. 

Anyhow, before you make up your mind about Total Human, you should know more about the ingredients.


Total Human is a very advanced supplement separated into 2 “sub-products”: The Day Pack and the Night pack. Both consist of a whole range of different ingredients. 

Let’s check them out.

Onnit Total Human Day Pack

As you can see, the Total Human Day Pack consists of multiple vitamin supplements, minerals, herbs, nootropics, amino acids, and other supplements that will ensure your optimal daily performance. It was designed to support focus, energy, and mental alertness.

The product is well-dosed, and since I know Onnit quite well know, I’d bet they are using the highest-quality ingredients possible.

What’s even more important, Total Human Day Pack goes well together with its brother – the Night Pack.

The Night Pack is all focused on making you more relaxed in the evening and helping you with sleep. Total Human can make you less stressed, decrease your anxiety, and increase your sleep quality. It will ensure that you wake up more energized and refreshed. 

Besides, it contains some vitamins and minerals that the Day Pack does not have.

All in all, we can see that the whole Total Human package was carefully designed and developed with the optimal performance in mind.

Total Human Ingredients

Let’s check the ingredients in more detail.

Day Support’s Formula

The Total Human Day Support Supplement includes the following supplements:

  • Alpha Brain
  • Shroom Tech Sport
  • Total Human B Complex
  • Stron BONE

Alpha Brain

Alpha Brain is a premium nootropic supplement that contains 9 nootropics for optimal brain health and performance.

From the list of potent nootropics, the following nootropics stand out

  • L-theanine – an amino acid that increases brain wave production [*]
  • Phosphatidylserine – an FDA approved amino acid that is vital for cognitive function [*]
  • Alpha GPC – a choline compound that increases the learning neurotransmitter acetylcholine [*]

Other ingredients support the main three nootropics and provide additional cognitive benefits.

Shroom Tech Sport

Shroom Tech Sport contains adaptogen Aswagandha, Cordyceps, Green tea extract, Rhodiola, and vitamin B12. These compounds offer neuroprotection, decrease stress levels, and help the body with cellular energy. They are also great for immune system.

Mushrooms and adaptogens work well together, so I highly recommend supplementing them.

Total Human B Complex

Total Human B Complex contains B-vitamins that are needed for optimal brain health, well-being, and brain function. 

Stron BONE

Stron Bone contains Vitamin K2 and E, strontium, potassium, copper, manganese, boron, and bioperine. These vitamins and minerals promote vitality and general health.

Night Support’s Formula

Total Human Night Packs include the following supplements:

  • New Mood
  • Key Minerals
  • Virutech

New Mood

New Mood offers daily stress support for mood and relaxation. It includes nootropics like valerian, chamomile, lemon balm, jujube seed extract, L-tryptophan, niacin, 5-HTP, inositol, vitamin b6, niacin, and magnesium.

This complex supplement is very effective for decreasing stress levels but also for improving sleep quality. The ingredients can also improve serotonin production in our bodies.

Key Minerals

As the name says, the Key Minerals supplement contains crucial minerals for optimal cognitive performance and health. 


Virutech is a unique supplement that contains vitamin C, zinc, and selenium. This combination can enhance your immune system. 

Both Packs

Both Packs also contain spirulina and chlorella, Shroom Tech Immune, and Krill oil. 

As you can see, Total Human is a complex supplement that consists of many supplements and even more individual compounds.

Can you expect any side effects due to its complexity?

Total Human Side Effects

Usually, you can figure out the potential side effects based on the mix of ingredients in a particular stack. But this is not true for Total Human.

When I looked at all the ingredients in this supplement, I quickly got worried. 

Not because there are any particular risky ingredients in this stack, but simply because there are SO MANY mixed together.

However, during my test period, I experienced no adverse side effects whatsoever. I felt very much focused and energized, I was calm, and my sleep was great.

To avoid side effects, I recommend taking the capsules with food. Do not take a higher daily dosage than recommended. 

So, my experience in terms of side effects has been great, and I’d consider marking Total Human as a very safe stack.

Total Human Suggested Use

The recommended dose for Total Human Day and Night pack is 1 packet/day.

So, you can take 1 packet in the morning with your breakfast (this means 8 capsules if I counted correctly).

Then, in the evening, about an hour before sleep, you open the other packet, and you take the other 8 capsules.

That’s what I’ve done during the test, and I recommend it to you as well.

To be 100% sure regarding the dose, do consult your doctor.

onnit total human supplement review


As part of my review process, I tried to figure out what others think about Total Human. I found some very interesting reviews. 

“I felt immediate results. I am not a morning person, and this helps me to wake up easier after the night pack, and once I get the morning pack I am in a much better mood to start my day.”

“My husband and I started taking Total Human about 3 weeks ago and we already love it. The very first night we both felt the difference in our sleep and woke up feeling refreshed. I also find daily stress does not get to me like it used to. I work very long days and come home and still have energy. Also, everyone around us is sick and usually I’d be right there with them but I feel great! We’ve used many Onnit products but the Total Human is the most convenient and cost effective way to enjoy several important products. I’ve already referred two friends and hope they enjoy it as much as we do.”

“Been onnit for about 2 weeks now. The experience has been encouraging and a great habit. Just the routine keeps me in a positive mindset on my health. I’m on one.”

It’s really hard to find some bad reviews, which is quite rare in this industry.

Now, besides all of those reviews, I gave a couple of packages to my fitness coach Mark who told me:

“Wou, I was impressed. I only drank Bulletproof Coffee and I took Total Human and I was good until lunch. Oh, and I even had a hard gym training in between. It’s great.”

Where To Buy Onnit Total Human?

To sum up the effects of Total Human:

  • It can ensure optimal human performance
  • It will deliver all essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
  • It will make you more relaxed, and it will improve your sleep

Total Human might as well be the best supplement stack currently available on the market.

It is also on the list of my TOP 5 favorite supplements.

  1. Is this a product that you would cycle? Or is it meant to be an every day all the time kind of thing?

  2. I appreciate your honest reviews. I have tried one recommendation but the amount of pills (7) I just could handle. So I stopped. I got all excited about this review until til I saw the amount of pills ?. Are there any out there that are as good In powder form?

    Thanks so much!

  3. Hi. How can we verify that the actual ingredients and percentages are what’s stated on the packaging? Is there an independent lab that you know of that can validate the numbers? The product looks very good , but I’m skeptical that the capsules contain everything they state.

  4. Hi Lee, good question! You can find many independent labs that would check the product for you. Also, it’s legally binding to dose the ingredients somewhere in the range of 5% +- of what you write on the label. Since Onnit is a very respected brand, I believe there is nothing to worry about. But if you do, just google some labs that are close to you and they can easily check the product. Hope this helps :)

  5. Hi Greg,

    I see that the “dose” is less then a “normal dose”.

    With this I mean: In the Total Human there is only 1 pill of the alpha brain. Which as if you take it normally they suggest 2 capsules.

    What do you think about the difference? I mean … yes buying everything together “Total Human” = cheaper but the doses are also lower.

  6. You are correct about that. The thing is that Total Human is such a complex supplement it might be risky to take too many pills of Alpha Brain. Also, if you test it out, you might experience what I did which was: A LOT of focus + energy. I could imagine people might experience issues taking too many Alpha Brain pills in this combo, that’s why I’m not so worried about that. But if I was taking Alpha Brain only, I would go for 2 caps for sure.

  7. Hi Greg

    I get up around 4:30-5am train and generally start work at 6 work hard physically and mentally and generally go to bed between 10-11pm
    What would be a good time to take the day and night packs as I don’t really rest and I also work at night

    Tha ks Andrew
