Mind Lab Pro Nootropic Review

How Will This Nootropic From Mind Lab Pro Benefit Me?

5 star rating! Nootropics are new to me and I only really came to know about them because a good friend suggested that I try them.

Without wanting to bore you I have pretty long days – by all means through my own choice so don’t think I am being hard done by, but we all have jobs to do, money to make, bills to pay and also be able to enjoy ourselves with our own set of goals to achieve.

Just to give you an idea of my daily grind, it starts at 0600 whereby I am in my car for 0630 to commute to work which takes 2 hours (each way).

Once at work I have a busy day in commercial real estate sales and management – my day is usually quite varied but it means dealing with sales, renewals, customer service etc.

I usually finish my work around 1830 and then it time for my return journey home or over to my girlfriends house which is also a 2 hour drive but in a different direction to my hometown.

Once home it’s time to either write content for here, trial products to review manage the social media side of things, do research et cetera and then hit the gym.

If it isn’t the gym, it is rugby training which is about a 15 minute drive. I would say I manage to get to bed for approximately Midnight, usually shattered.

Can a nootropic help?

All-in-all, a fairly busy schedule for 5 days of the week, not forgetting playing rugby on Saturday and being hungover on Sunday.

But not only is it busy, I have to be concentrating. I have to concentrate for 4 hours driving each day, once at work it isn’t a case of switching of mentally – I have to react to many different situations and make sales, ensure I am generating enough revenue for the companies targets.

Then once I am home, it’s a whole different job of research and writing – I cannot even switch off at rugby training either otherwise you are likely to get flattened by a 250lb monster.

My previous form of attack (and defense) to my daily routine was caffeine, lots of caffeine.

However, this brings a whole world of it’s own problems. It becomes difficult to multi-task, difficult to switch from one task to another and react to clients and/or the changing situation, research the market place and generally see through to the next day or plan your week.

This is where Nootropics came in, my friend had read about them and said they could be worth a shot…

The idea is that the ingredients in Nootropic products feed the brain with the nutrients it needs to be razor sharp, they heighten your senses again so to speak.

A car will not run properly with an old, dirty and clogged up air filter and neither will your brain if it isn’t getting all it requires.

What Are Nootropics?

Nootropics, also known as smart drugs, are products that help stimulate and increase cognitive function, with particular focus on executive functions, memory, focus, creativity and motivation.

As people are leading more stressful and demanding lives, these sort of products are seeing an incline in sales, as people, like myself and probably like you, realize that topping up that coffee cup isn’t the solution.

If I am being honest, I was skeptical. My thoughts are that exercise alone is a great way to ensure you are on top of your game both physically and mentally…

Now, there are studies out there conducted by universities what prove that people with a higher IQ will earn much more than those who aren’t blessed so much with the old grey matter – but let’s be honest that is common sense, right?

A doctor surely wasn’t struggling with learning the days of the week at school or trigonometry. However, how many people do you see that are clever, have a college/higher education degree yet once they fall in to the routine of work they really do not reach their potential and fall foul of underachievement?

Or even yourself, you have a good standard of education but you feel like you are not firing on all cylinders, work becomes more of a chore and not because it is particularly difficult or mundane but because you feel like you’re caught in a fog of war.

Tasks that never seem to either get started or completed properly because your mind wanders to other things?

I thought it wouldn’t do any harm to try them, these are legal, above board and suitable for vegans and vegetarians so anyone is good to go. From scholars, truck drivers to machine operators, we may all be able to benefit from a nootropic supplement.

How Does Mind Lab Pro Work? What Are The Benefits?

First things first, my good friend had said this particular product was good after he had done some in-depth research, he was happy with the results for both work and play – he works in finance and plays amateur rugby like myself.

My friend is a bit of a thinker when it comes to playing rugby whereas, I prefer the brute force approach. Both have their pro’s and cons but let’s be certain here, I definitely end up with more black eyes.

What Makes The Mind Lab Pro Work?

Vitamin B6 – Comprising three chemically distinct compounds pyridoxal, pyridoxamine, and pyridoxine, is involved in the regulation of mental function and mood. Vitamin B6 is also an essential homocysteine re-methylation cofactor, and deficiency is associated with increase in blood homocysteine levels.

Homocysteine is a risk factor for cerebrovascular disease and may also have directly toxic effects on neurons of the central nervous system.

Neuropsychiatric disorders including seizures, migraine, chronic pain and depression have been linked to vitamin B6 deficiency.

Cognizin (citicoline) –  Studies have shown that it can have beneficial effects both in degenerative and in vascular cognitive decline.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4562749/

Phosphatidylserine – Supplementation could improve the memory functions of the elderly with memory complaints.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2966935/

Hericium Erinaceus – This is effective in improving mild cognitive impairment.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18844328

Rhodiola rosea – Can protect against cognitive deficits, neuronal injury and oxidative stress, can also be used as a potential agent in treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19950527

L-Theanine –  Beneficial for stress reduction, decreasing generalized anxiety, and reducing the severity of insomnia. If caffeine is present too, IQ scores have known to increase – so grap a cup of coffee, quick.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17182482

N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine – Tyrosine is taken for depression, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the inability to stay awake (narcolepsy), and improving alertness following sleep deprivation.

It is also used for stress, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome(CFS).

Bacopa monnieri – This improve attention, cognitive processing, and working memory.

Improvements are much better at 8-12 weeks than they are at 4-6 weeks.

Vinpocetine – Vinpocetine is commonly used for enhancing memory and alertness. It is also used in conditions that harm learning, memory, and information processing skills as people age.

Additionally, Vinpocetine may be able to protect the brain from damage caused by strokes and help reduce the risk of ischemia.

Does it Work?

As I initially said, I was quite skeptical of these kind of products called a nootropic that ‘boosts brain power and IQ’ and at first I took Mind Lab Pro and thought I would feel something…maybe a tingle, or being fidgety but, alas, nothing.

I thought this nootropic was a waste of time and I was tempted to not bother with them – however, the tight Northerner in me would not let go – I had after all paid $65/£46 for them so I carried on as normal.

12722380_10153387819586969_466213439_o

I was a few days in of taking this nootropic and without realizing immediately I noticed I was sleeping like a baby.

I normally get to bed around Midnight but wake probably around 0400 and turn over a few times before waking at 0600 feeling not my best but okay to get ready and prepare myself for the 60 miles drive to work.

However, it dawned (pun intended) on me that I hadn’t been having broken sleep at all and instead of lifelessly dragging myself into the shower and into the car eager for my flask of coffee I just felt absolutely fine as if I was performing a task a few hours in to my day.

Now, my theory was that exercise alone is a great way to de-stress and promote healthy sleep and that does work, however, although I can never say I have a particularly bad nights sleep or trouble nodding off but my sleep just feels much better now.

I think what most people expect from these sort of supplements is that they are going to transform from having little scholarly application to a genius.

Unfortunately they do not work that way otherwise with the amount of bottles I have consumed I would be working at CERN right now!

No, what a nootropic does is help take away the fuzz, the distractions and the stress which can make you feel like you are swimming through treacle everyday to get a job done.

For instance once I am in my car autopilot sets in generally and the next thing I know I am walking to the office with my mind full of fuzzy ideas.

I need to be planning on what needs to be done, trying to remember anything that is outstanding, who my next clients name is, what offices are available and who hasn’t paid their rent not to mention all of your personal admin you need to remember to do over lunch.

Yet, since taking this nootropic from Mind Lab Pro the haze just seems to be lifted, the distractions of other tasks to be completed are not there until needed, recalling peoples names or where plans are stored in what folders isn’t such an issue – I seem to have much more mental structure as opposed to trying to write everything down.

It feels like I am back firing on all cylinders again.

Best of all, I have saved time; once home instead of laboring over writing and research I can just crack on, get the articles done and spend more time lifting weights!

I guess Stephanie who uses Mind Lab Pro explains how it works very well.

My Mindlab Pro Nootropic Review Conclusion:

If you expect to become the next Stephen Hawking or Mozart by taking this, think again. A nootropic doesn’t work like that. Don’t expect 20-20 vision or an ability to read minds either.

However, the little subtle differences felt by taking this such as better sleep, improved concentration and focus can lead to much bigger achievements.

For some, myself included, being able to avoid procrastination and completing a task to ensure I can claw back an extra hour every evening for gym, rugby or just catching up with family is priceless. I certainly recommend giving it a go.

It’s only available to buy online, but I tend to buy pretty much everything online now anyway.
