Mind Lab Pro Brain Supplement Review

Mind Lab Pro Universal Nootropic Supplement

There has been a lot of buzz and fuss lately about brain booster pills. Students, workers, professionals, athletes, and you name it are looking for the "limitless" pill that will unlock their brain power.

Truth is, the theory of "brain hacking" or accessing unused areas of the brain to obtain ultimate mental function is more of a myth. We all use 100% of our brains, and each area of the brain has its specific function. There are no reserved, untapped brain cells that a drug can help you utilize. We only hear about such miraculous brain elixirs in science fiction, like the NZT-48 pill from the movie Limitless.

But there are some real medications and supplements that can support brain health and improve cognitive function to some degree. Mind Lab Pro is one of latest natural brain enhancers on the market that is gaining a lot of popularity.

What Is Mind Lab Pro?

Mind Lab Pro is an over-the-counter nutritional supplement for the brain. It is not an approved medication for any mental condition, and it is not a quick-fix brain power pill.

What Results Does Mind Lab Pro Bring About?

Noticeable effects include better concentration and improved performance with mentally demanding tasks. You can expect improvement in mental clarity, cognitive function and overall mood.

With regular daily use, you may also notice better ability to remember and form new memories, but there is no solid clinical proof of long-term memory improvement.

If you are having difficulty concentrating and remembering due to daily stress, or if age is starting to take its toll on your cognition, then Mind Lab Pro might be the right supplement for you.

Results will vary from one user to another, and even from one day to another, so it may not work for all users.

How Long Does It Take To Work?

Give it at least a few hours to be absorbed and start taking effect. When using it for the first time, give it a few days if you notice no results on the first day.

This supplement is meant for long-term, daily-use mental support. You won't get a significant instant boost like with stimulant drugs.

What Are The Ingredients?

Each serving (2 capsules) contains the following ingredients with the shown dosage:

  • Bacopa Monnieri (45% Bacosides) (150mg)
  • Cognizin (Citicoline) (250mg)
  • Lion's Mane Mushroom (500mg)
  • Pterocarpus Extract (90% Pterostilbene) (500mcg)
  • Rhodiola Rosea Extract (50mg)
  • Sharp PS (Phosphatidylserine) (100mg)
  • Suntheanine (L-Theanine) (100mg)
  • Tyrosine (175mg)
  • Vinpocetine (6mg)
  • Vitamin B6 (2.5mg)
  • Vitamin B12 (7.5mcg)

Who Should Take Mind Lab Pro?

Any man or woman over 18 years old looking for a natural supplement to improve their mental performance and well-being.

Older people can also take Mind Lab Pro to support their memory and brain health.

This product is not intended to treat or prevent any health condition. If you have a mental illness or you are taking other brain medications, please consult with your doctor before taking any new supplement.

How To Take Mind Lab Pro?

The manufacturer's recommendation is 2 capsules a day taken in the morning or afternoon with a meal. If that's not potent enough for you, it is safe to increase the dosage up to 4 capsules daily.

Are There Any Side Effects?

No, there are no remarkable side effects or health risks. As long as you follow label instructions, Mind Lab Pro should be quite safe for daily consumption.

Where Is It Manufactured?

Mind Lab Pro is made in a regulated facility located in Texas, USA. Ingredients are tested for purity and safety.

Where To Buy Mind Lab Pro From?

It is sold by Opti-Nutra LTD (located in London, UK), who are the sole distributor of authentic Mind Lab Pro supplement.

You can order it directly from the official website.

There are three pricing options:

  • 1 box (60 capsules/1 month supply) for $65.00 + shipping.
  • 2 boxes for $130.00 (free US & UK shipping).
  • 3 boxes + 1 free for $195.00 (free worldwide shipping).

Pre-Made Stack Vs. Building Your Own Stack

Mind Lab Pro is a pre-made nootropic stack (a blend of 11 ingredients in one capsule), and while using a ready-made formula may be more convenient than buying and trying each ingredient separately, there are a few disadvantages that come with this option, namely:

  1. Low Dosage: A lot of the ingredients in MLP are under-dosed at about half the standard effective dosage. For example, the standard dosage of bacopa monnieri is 300-500mg daily, while you only get 150mg per MLP serving (2 capsules).
  2. High Price: One bottle of 60 caps costs $65, which is quite expensive -- a typical disadvantage of most brand formula supplements.
  3. Overstated Claims: They tell you all about the benefits and exclusive features of this product, but nowhere do they provide proof from an independent third party to support the claims, except for the paid video testimonials. Yes, many of the ingredients have been clinically studied by others before and proven to be effective, but if you search for the published studies on an independent website (like, you'll notice two things; the results are way less stellar, and the dosage used is way higher than what 2 capsules of MLP pack.

That said, when stacking Mind Lab Pro up against other pre-made herbal nootropics, it does have one of the best formulas you can find on the market today. So, if you don't mind shelling out some extra cash, then I'd say go ahead and give it a try!

Otherwise, if your budget is tight, then you can go with the wiser option, which is to build your own nootropic stack.

All of the ingredients listed above can be bought separately from many supplement stores, either as bulk powder or capsules. This way you will get an adequate dose of each ingredient at a much lower price.

And the best thing is that as you sample ingredients separately, you will be able to figure out which specific compounds and dosages work best for you and stick with those. And you may as well try several other worth-trying medicinal herbs and nootropic compounds that are not included in MLP.

Supplements are not effective for everyone, but by trying different compounds each on its own, you will eventually discover which ones work well with your system instead of wasting hundreds of dollars on over-hyped and overpriced brand formulas.
