Below we take an in-depth look at Nootropeak Vivid to see whether it can enhance cognitive function, as claimed by the manufacturer.
There are no customer reviews that we could locate for Nootropeak Vivid, which makes it more difficult to determine how the product works in practice. However, the manufacturers do provide a detailed ingredients list complete with the individual ingredient quantities used.
Nootropeak Vivid contains several ingredients that could benefit the consumer’s mental function. These are Bacopa Monnieri and Huperzine A. However, there are some ingredients that have limited or not cognitive value or that are lacking in clinical support.
Vinpocetine may improve blood flow to the brain, but it is under-researched. As it is lab-synthesised, its status as a prescription-free supplement, rather than a medicine, is also tenuous, and it could be made unavailable in the future.
Huperzine A has numerous potential side effects associated with its use. Theanine may promote relaxation, but will not aid cognitive function directly. Similarly, tyrosine appears to reduce fatigue in sleep deprived consumers, but will not boost energy (mental or physical) in anyone who is not sleep deprived, and again does not aid cognitive function directly.
If using the high recommended daily dose of four capsules, a single bottle of Nootropeak Vivid will only last for 15 days of use, making it an expensive supplement to take on a long term basis.
The manufacturers offer a 30 day money back guarantee on Nootropeak Vivid, showing that the company both offer good customer service and have faith in the effectiveness of their products.
Overall, we do not recommend Nootropeak Vivid to our customers, due to the high cost of long term supplementation and the fact that some of the ingredients used are inadequately researched or relatively ineffective at boosting cognitive function.
Containing ingredients that have been clinically tested and boasting a 30-day money-back guarantee, OmniMind is quickly rising to the top of the nootropic world.

Nootropeak Vivid is a caffeine-free nootropic supplement that is designed to act as a cognitive enhancer that will improve memory, ease anxiety, boost focus and promote lucid and creative thought.
The product is manufactured by Nootropeak who describe themselves as being:
dedicated to delivering to you the most effective and pure nootropic stacks and brain boosting supplements available.
The company is based in Nashville, Tennessee, and they can be contacted using the information provided on their official website.
We recommend taking 1-2 capsules in the morning, and another 1-2 capsules in the early afternoon with food and water. You can generally feel VIVID’s effects after 10-20 minutes, and the cognitive boost can last 4-6 hours or more. Never exceed six capsules in a 24 hour period.
They clim that:
VIVID is Nootropeak’s keystone nootropic stack. Formulated for everyday use, VIVID is a caffeine-free cognitive enhancer designed to increase memory, ease anxiety, boost focus and promote lucid and creative thought.
Bacopa Monnieri needs to be taken daily for an effect to build up over time, but some of the other ingredients could cause a general improvement in energy levels and mental clarity shortly after taking the supplement. However, Huperzine A, a cognitive enhancer, should be cycled occasionally, and so it may be a good idea to use the product daily, but to take a short break between bottles in order to maximise results but minimise the chances of side effects developing.
Bacopa Monnieri reduces anxiety and improves memory, and tyrosine could help to reduce fatigue. Theanine could aid relaxation.
Vinpocetine could both help to improve mental energy and memory, but the clinical evidence is generally inadequate, as the trials that have been conducted are extremely limited.
Bacopa Monnieri needs to be used continuously for several weeks for the effects to build up, but many of the other ingredients will have a more immediate effect, with noticeable effects within an hour of consumption. However, only Huperzine A and Bacopa Monnieri appear to directly benefit cognitive function. Vinpocetine could improve memory, but the clinical support is inadequate.
The product includes some nootropic ingredients that may help to improve memory, reduce fatigue, promote relaxation and act as a general cognitive enhancer. However, the amount of clinical support behind each ingredient varies hugely; some have clear evidence from human trials, whilst others have only been researched in rats, with the results extrapolated to humans. The limited research that has been conducted for Vinpocetine, for example, was heavily biased (which may have skewed results), and the research is outdated.
The ingredients used in Nootropeak Vivid are listed below. The ingredient quantities listed are per serving of two capsules.
Some of the ingredients used in Nootropeak Vivid can cause some side effects.
Although Tyrosine is tolerated generally in very high doses, it can cause some side effects including nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.
Studies have shown that Bacopa leaf causes upset stomachs in participants much more than placebos. This has led to the recommendation that this ingredient be taken with a meal, rather than on an empty stomach, as this will minimise the chances of getting an upset stomach. It may also cause nausea, cramping, bloating, and diarrhoea.
Vinpocetine can cause some side effects including stomach pain, nausea, sleep disturbances, headache, dizziness, nervousness, and flushing of the face.
Huperzine A can cause some side effects such as nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, sweating, blurred vision, slurred speech, restlessness, loss of appetite, contraction and twitching of muscle fibres, cramping, increased saliva and urine, inability to control urination, high blood pressure, and slowed heart rate.
Theanine causes a state of relaxation without drowsiness, and may help to counteract some of the potential side effects of caffeine, such as jitteriness. Caffeine is not an ingredient used in Nootropeak Vivid, but it is found in tea, coffee and energy drinks.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. Not suitable for anyone who is taking any medications, whether prescription or over the counter.
