Optimind Review: A Promising Formula, but with an Unethical Sales Technique.
OptiMind is the flagship product of AlternaScript, a growing company who claim that this brain pill will enhance focus, memory and energy levels. These effects are achieved via ingredients which alter the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain.
Optimind Full Ingredients List
Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA)
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Bacopa Monniera (Synapsa)
Vitamin D-3 & Vitamin B-12
OptiMind’s ingredients are listed as a proprietary blend, means we’re unable to assess whether or not OptiMind can really deliver the benefits it promises. The ingredients are high-quality and meet FDA standards, but it’s really important for us to know exactly how much of them are in each pill before we decide to buy. The blend is 1,315g in total, higher than many other proprietary blends. Here’s what it’s made up of:
Huperzine-A – Protects acetylcholine from being broken down by acetylcholinesterase, keeping your brain working better for longer.
Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) – GABA is a neurotransmitter which has a calming effect on the brain and body and is used to reduce anxiety and improve mood.
Phosphatidylserine – A chemical present in the body which is reproduced from soy. It’s used to treat ADHD and Alzheimer’s because of its positive effects on thinking skills and cognition.
Alpha Lipoic Acid – An antioxidant which protects brain cells from damage. It’s usually paired with L-Carnitine, which while found in many other brain supplements, is surprisingly not present in this formula.
Caffeine – Provides an energy boost with 150mg per serving.
L-Tyrosine – Improves mood by increasing dopamine levels.
L-Taurine – An antioxidant which regulates levels of cortisol in the brain to improve mood
Sulbutiamine – Boosts energy levels and elevates mood by altering thiamine levels in the brain. Also improves memory retention.
Vinpocetine – A plant extract which increases blood flow to the brain and improves memory function.
Bacopa Monniera (Synapsa) – Synapsa is a branded form of Bacopa Monnieri, which is an Ayurvedic herb used to improve memory and reduce stress.
Vitamin D & Vitamin B-12 – These vitamins are vital for brain function and health.
Other ingredients include calcium silicate, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, titanium dioxide and a vegetarian capsule.
Recommended dosage is 2 capsules per serving, taken no more frequently than 4 hours at a time.
OptiMind doesn’t need to be cycled and can be taken continuously. Those with a sensitivity to caffeine should use with caution as each serving contains 150mg.
The Results – OptiMind Reviews
From looking at OptiMind’s online reviews, we can see that the results are pretty good. Amazon customers said it was a great product which helped them feel focused, and some said it helped them deal with ADHD. Supplement Critique said it was one of the best formulas they’d tested and that they would ‘highly recommend OptiMind to anyone looking to gain an edge in the classroom, boardroom, or playing field’.
OptiMind’s Subscription Service – How to avoid getting burned
Any purchase of OptiMind automatically signs you up for their subscription service, which means that your card will automatically be charged for another bottle at regular intervals after that. The same goes for their free trial service, which requires credit card details to be claimed. Some may see this as a scam, but it doesn’t have to be that way. As long as you cancel your subscription within 14 days of purchase, you can avoid any extra charges. Once you’ve purchased, you can get yourself a free bottle by referring three people to sign up for a free trial, too.
One bottle costs $43.31 and contains 32 capsules. To get a month’s supply, you’ll need to purchase two of these.
There’s a 30-day money back guarantee for those who aren’t happy with the product and want to get a refund.
OptiMind’s website is secure and accepts all major credit cards. Delivery can be as fast as 1-2 days.
OptiMind’s formula looks decent, with some solid ingredient choices in there. However, the caffeine content may be off-putting for some and we really wish they’d disclosed individual dosages instead of using a proprietary blend. People seem to like it and say it provides good results, but the subscription service is a bit sneaky and takes advantage of the fact that most people will forget to cancel and end up buying more bottles by accident, rather than because they really want them. The best products don’t need to trick their customers into buying them. If it wasn’t for that, perhaps we’d like it a lot more.
