What You Need To Know About Nutrimind

Nutrimind was available until 2016, when its manufacturers, WhatIf Nutrition, closed and took down their official website. It is a nootropic supplement that contained numerous ingredients commonly found in cognitive enhancers, but in unknown quantities.

What Are The Side Effects Of Nutrimind?

There are numerous ingredients used in Nutrimind that could potentially cause side effects. Without knowing the ingredient quantities, it is difficult to estimate how likely any particular side effect is, but even knowing this, the presentation of side effects varies greatly between consumers because of varying tolerances for various supplement ingredients.

One of the supposed benefits of Nutrimind is vivid dreaming. We have found reports from consumers of similar supplements that this can turn into an unpleasant side effect, when instead of having vivid pleasant dreams, consumers have vivid nightmares that wake them up.

The full list of potential side effects that can be caused by the ingredients in Nutrimind can be found below under the Side Effects tab.

How Much Does Nutrimind Cost?

Nutrimind was available exclusively from the official WhatIf Nutrition website, which has now been taken down, following the closure of the company. A single bottle did cost $34.95 plus delivery charges. It may still be possible to find the occasional bottle up for resale on eBay, but as time goes on this becomes more unlikely.

Our Verdict On Nutrimind

The biggest reason that we cannot recommend Nutrimind to our readers is that it is simply no longer available, as the manufacturing company, WhatIf Nutrition, has closed down their website. The product was not sold through any third-party retailers, and so it appears that there is no stock available elsewhere either.

The ingredients list did contain numerous promising ingredients, but as no quantities were provided at all, it is impossible to establish how effective the product would have been. The ingredients could also cause a range of side effects. We could not locate any customer reviews to shed any more light on whether or not the product actually worked.

Overall, we do not recommend Nutrimind to our readers.

Nutrimind Review

Nutrimind is a nootropic supplement that, according to the manufacturers, could benefit cognitive function in numerous ways, including improving focus, increasing alertness, and improving sleep. They also claim that consumers will ‘dream in high definition’, which we assume means that the product causes vivid dreams.

Nutrimind Concerns:

What Does Nutrimind Claim To Do?

The manufacturers of Nutrimind have claimed that the product has the following benefits:

  • Think faster
  • Faster reaction time
  • Focus longer
  • Sleep better
  • Improved memory
  • Improved clarity
  • No caffeine
  • No stimulants
  • Dream in high definition!

Does Nutrimind Work?

Because none of the individual ingredient quantities used in Nutrimind are provided, it is impossible to accurately establish the strength of the nootropic. This means that the likelihood of developing side effects is unknown, as well as the actual effectiveness of the product. However, many of the ingredients have interesting preliminary support suggesting that they could aid various aspects of cognitive function.

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. Bacopa Monnieri reduces anxiety and improves memory, and tyrosine could help to reduce fatigue. A-GPC appears to improve cognition.

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, biased and outdated. Cordyceps Sinensis could improve oxygen utilisation by the body, which is thought to improve physical endurance and increase mental alertness.

The ingredients are a range of nootropics that may help to improve memory, reduce fatigue, increase energy levels (both physically and mentally), 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.

What Are The Ingredients of Nutrimind?

The ingredients used in Nutrimind are detailed below. The product contains a proprietary formula, and so there is no information available about the individual ingredient quantities used in each capsule or serving.

  • Huperzine A: Huperzine A is found in Huperzia serrata. Huperzine A is thought to be a cognitive enhancer. Because of the relatively long half-life of this compound, its use should be cycled, with breaks in usage every few weeks.
  • Alpha GPC: In Europe alpha-GPC is a prescription medication for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, but in the USA it is a prescription-free dietary supplement. It appears to have some cognitive-boosting properties, helps to prevent cognitive decline, and may also enhance power output in athletes.
  • L-Theanine: This amino acid is found in green tea, and may increase feelings of relaxation. It may also reduce the negative side effects of caffeine, although there is seemingly no clinical evidence to support this claim.
  • Phosphatidylserine: Several studies with phosphatidylserine indicate improved cognitive abilities and behaviours, but the studies focused on Alzheimer’s patients; it is possible that these effects could also benefit consumers in general, but there is no real clinical support to support this. The FDA has stated that Phosphatidylserine may reduce the risk of cognitive dysfunction and dementia in the elderly.
  • Pterostilbene: a derivative of Resveratrol that appears to be more potent. There is less clinical research for Pterostilbene than Resveratrol, but the research that does exist suggests that potentially it could improve memory and cognitive function slightly.
  • Cordyceps Sinensis: This ingredient is a parasitic fungus that grows on caterpillar larvae in some regions of India. It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. There is limited evidence linking this ingredient with improved athletic performance and endurance. It may also boost the immune system, improve cognition and act as a mood enhancer.
  • Oat Straw: Thought to be a treatment for anxiety as well as improving cognitive performance in the brain. It is also a good source of calcium.
  • Vinpocetine: Because it is an entirely synthetic chemical that requires significant lab work to produce, there is some debate as to whether this ingredient actually qualifies as a supplement under US and FDA guidelines. Vinpocetine may increase blood flow to the brain, and so may help to treat fatigue and improve memory; despite claims about research being extensive, most research is outdated and uses biased research methods.
  • Bacopa Monnieri: Used to reduce anxiety, improve memory, and seems to have a minor ability to treat depression, making it a general mild mood booster. Its effects can take time to achieve a noticeable level, as the effects appear to accumulate with repeated use.
  • Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 has several important functions in the body, including ‘allowing the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food’.

Does Nutrimind Have Any Side Effects?

There are numerous ingredients used in Nutrimind that could potentially cause side effects. Without knowing the ingredient quantities, it is difficult to estimate how likely any particular side effect is, but even knowing this, the presentation of side effects varies greatly between consumers because of varying tolerances for various supplement ingredients.

Although Tyrosine is tolerated generally in very high doses, it can cause some side effects including nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.

A-GPC can cause side effects in some people including heartburn, headache, insomnia, dizziness, skin rash, and confusion.

Theanine causes a state of relaxation without drowsiness, and may help to counteract some of the potential side effects of caffeine, such as jitteriness. Consumers should still ensure that they do not consume caffeine within 5 hours of bedtime, as caffeine can interfere with sleep cycles. Caffeine is not present in this supplement, but is in coffee, tea and many soft drinks.

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.

Side effects of Phosphatidylserine can include insomnia and stomach upset, particularly at doses over 300 mg. It can be made from either plant or animal sources, and so may not be suitable for vegetarians.

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.

Caution:
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. If you are unsure about the suitability of this nootropic supplement, or any other supplement, consult your doctor before purchase.
