Mental Mojo is the sole product on sale from a company called Mental Mojo, and available solely from the official website or via Amazon. The company is based in Scottsdale Arizona, and was founded by law students.
Mental Mojo is a nootropic supplement that comes in the form of a powder, that you just add to water and drink when you feel you need to perk up. There are two flavours; Fruit Punch or Kiwi Strawberry, and it is important to remember that this product is a supplement and not just an energy drink. Over use could cause additional side effects, especially if combined with added caffeine or alcohol and there is a long list potential side effects. That said, Mental Mojo is very expensive so most customers will probably use sparingly. You are encouraged to sign up for auto delivery via the official website, but a lack of details about how to cancel this binding agreement is a matter for concern.
Potential side effects may include; jitteriness, anxiety, restlessness, vomiting, nausea, diarrhoea, sweating, twitching limbs, changes to blood pressure levels, changes to heart rate, loss of appetite, insomnia, and headaches.
Do not take if you have an underlying medical or mental health condition, and avoid alcohol and caffeine.
Mental Mojo is expensive. Buy from the Mental Mojo website and 1 x 10 stick box costs $29.99.
You can make savings on large orders so 2 x boxes (20 sticks) costs $49.98, and 3 x boxes costs $71.98. You are encouraged to make further savings by signing up to autoship, AKA the Monthly Mojo. This is where fresh supplies are delivered each month and your bank or credit card charged automatically. Choose this option and 1 x 10 stick box costs $27.49 a month. Shipping to US addresses is free.
You can also buy Mental Mojo via Amazon USA for around the same price as it costs on the official website (not the autoship option).
We quite like Mental Mojo but feel it is massively overpriced for a drink sachet, and although the advertising makes all the right claims and looks slick and well thought out, we feel this supplement looks like a novelty product rather than a serious nootropic supplement. In addition, we have concerns about potential side effects and the fact that you are advised to avoid coffee and alcohol while using it, will be a real deterrent to some users.
We do think Mental Mojo probably does have a generally upbeat effect, but much of the evidence for the individual ingredients such as Huperzine, was based on very different criteria than you would experience by drinking this supplement. That said, for an occasional pick-me-up Mental Mojo may work for some people and if you enjoy the taste you may feel it is money well spent.
Despite the good points, we don’t feel it is good enough so we do not recommend Mental Mojo to the Watchdog readers.

Mental Mojo is a nootropic drink that comes in two flavours; Fruit Punch or Kiwi Strawberry. It comes packaged in individual sticks that you just break open and add to water to create a drink. According to the product information, the flavours are natural and the drinks are sugar free.
The product information states that it will support mental focus, clarity, and energy. The idea is that you drink it whenever you need a lift such as before a challenging experience, such as presentation or exam, or if your focus and attention levels are flagging.
Mental Mojo contains some well known nootropic ingredients combined in a proprietary blend. This means we cannot see a full ingredients breakdown and know quantities, however it includes Vinpocetine, Huperzine A, both originally derived from plant extracts. There are amino acids L Tyrosine and Acetyl L Carnitine, and finally Alpha GPC and Phosphatylserine – two chemicals that are naturally present in the body and specifically linked to mental processes and brain health.
Mental Mojo also contains vitamins B6, B12, and Folic acid for added brain support. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
Mental Mojo looks pretty good, but if you are a fan of nootropics you will know that this is a pretty standard looking ingredients formula, so we are struggling to believe that this supplement is really patent pending as the advertising claims.
We looked into this and found that the advertising has been claiming that this supplement is “patent pending” since the company started in 2013, so it is all looking a bit overdue now.
Mental Mojo was founded by Stephen Klein while studying at Arizona Law School, so as well as devising this supplement as a safe alternative to prescription drugs like Adderall which are commonly abused by students, he probably saw the need for legal protection for his idea of a nootropic drink.
According to the product information, Mental Mojo is manufactured by a US company called Nutracaps Labs. This company carries out contract pill manufacture for clients. Source
According to the advertising, this drinks supplement is like Rocket Fuel for your brain.
It “draws its power from a proprietary blend of brain boosting nootropics and energizing amino acid/ vitamin complexes developed in conjunction with leading formulators and neurochemists.”
There are five key features to this drink supplement.
We think that this supplement will work for some people and with 150mg of caffeine per serving, roughly the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee, you may notice initial caffeine buzz similar to an energy drink or caffeine.
However, Mental Mojo does contain some well known nootropic ingredients that have undergone clinical testing, and some evidence is that they will work as described.
Acetyl L Carnitine and L Tyrosine are both important for mental energy, and Tyrosine especially is important for boosting alertness. Testing has shown that taking around 150mg can help keep you awake after missing sleep.
Alpha GPC (L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine) is a natural choline compound that is already present in the brain, but some research has shown that taking supplements can improve cognitive disorders such as strokes and Alzheimer’s disease. Whether or not this will equate with doing better in exams is not known, but some users do report cognitive stimulation.
Huperzine may help boost memory and recall if taken regularly – it seems to take about 4 weeks to work. Vinponectine increases blood flow to the brain which enhances oxygen delivery, so can help mental performance.
Each serving of the proprietary blend adds up to 916.2mg so although this seems a good sized serving, we do not know whether the individual ingredient quantities match those used in clinical research.
Serving size is equal to one packet.
Some of the components in Mental Mojo are known for causing side effects so you probably should not drink it every day or too often.
Potential side effects include;
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before using if you are taking prescription medication or have an underlying medical or mental health condition. Some of the ingredients in Mental Mojo could make mental health issues worse.

There are many positive comments,
Didn’t give me the shakes, but knocked me out of my lethargic state of mind:)
Mental Mojo is awesome. I don’t drink coffee, and used to drink soda or energy drinks for caffeine, but once I tried this I enjoyed the good steady kick, with no sugar rush, carbs and crashing effect
Some customers feel it helps a bit but is not outstanding,
Taste is good. Seemed like a good alternative to an electrolyte packet. No major difference in mental clarity.
The product is easily digestible and taste is good considering powder form alternatives. I notice improved focus and mental energy within minutes. Good product but I need more testing on it.
Other customers have not noticed any difference,
Do not notice any change in mood or energy level.
Did less for me than a monster from the gas station at a lot higher price. Would not recommend.
Some people have experienced side effects,
Made me feel dizzy and sick.
Customers have also complained about the flavour,
Liked most? It did provide a bit of a boost but nothing long term. The bad? The taste!!! So bad won’t be buying more.
