Review: The Good and Bad Points of Mind Boost Day and Mind Boost Night
While the Age of Information gave you the opportunity to be recognized and be successful in your chosen field, it has also given you more concerns to think about that render you sleepless nights. The continuously growing competition between you and your contemporaries forces you to always think on your feet, quickly remember people and information and show not even a slight evidence that the human mind can only take so much.
If you’re taking all of these things all too seriously, maybe it’s time to see what this era has to offer and work your way around these daily concerns and not force yourself to take what your mind cannot. Have you ever considered nootropics? It does sound like drugs because these are actually drugs, but there are also supplements, like the Mind Boost Day and Night, from a company called Simple Smart Science. Read on and see what these supplements have to offer.
What are Nootropics?
Nootropics are also known as smart drugs primarily because of their supposed effects on the brain. These are generally taken by a person who hopes to improve his memory, concentration and other aspects concerning the brain. In recent years, health supplement manufacturers also ventured into producing nootropics that are herbal in nature to compete with nootropic drugs that are not only synthetic, but are also known to cause harmful side effects. One of these manufacturers is Simple Smart Science.
The Mind Boost Supplements
Simple Smart Science has two herbal nootropic supplements – Mind Boost Day and Mind Boost Night – probably an effort to make their product a complete daily supplement, one to take after waking up and another before going to sleep. In fact, the company offers a package with both Mind Boost Day and Mind Boost Night supplements, which is referred to as the Mind Boost Complete. However, anyone may still separately purchase his preferred Mind Boost supplement.
Mind Boost Day
Mind Boost Day’s formula does not boast of more herbal ingredients compared to similar all-natural nootropic supplements found in the market today. In fact, it only contains four ingredients, but these are all scientifically and clinically proven to aid in enhancing memory, concentration and cognition. These ingredients are:
- Bacopa Monnieri
Also known as the Water Hyssop, Bacopa Monnieri is commonly sourced from India where it is used in traditional medicine called Ayurveda. In science, it is known to contain Citocoline, a natural chemical compound in the brain, which has been proven to increase another brain chemical known as Phosphatidylcholine. This chemical has been clinically studied and proven to enhance memory and focus.
- Rhodiola Rosea
Commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine, the Rhodiola Rosea or Rose Root is generally known to reduce stress levels and increase mental performance.
- Vitamin B-12
The most common among the ingredients, Cobalamin or Vitamin B-12 has been proven to aid the nervous system in facilitating the transmission of brain neurons. These neurons are cells through which information are transmitted within the brain, thus, enhancing brain cognition.
- Folic Acid
Also called Vitamin B-9, this acid is an essential component, which allows the brain to grow cells and function properly. No wonder why it is an important vitamin for pregnant mothers, babies and adolescents.
Mind Boost Night
Similar to Mind Boost Day, the formula of Mind Boost Night only has a few but essential natural ingredients. However, unlike the Mind Boost Day, it helps in relaxing the mind, instead of keeping it active. Here are the main ingredients of the night supplement:
This ingredient is a combination of niacin and GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid). GABA, especially in increased levels, has been scientifically proven to improve sleep and mood, and relieve the feelings of anxiety.
- Green Tea Extract
Probably, the most common among the main ingredients of the night supplement, the extract of this popular beverage contains antioxidants known as polyphenols. These antioxidants have been clinically proven to improve memory and reduce risks of brain damage that often leads to serious mental conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.
- Olive Leaf Extract
Even in the ancient civilization of Egypt, the extract of the olive’s leaves has been used in medicine. The use of olive leaf extract in medicine remains to be true until today. This is because it contains antioxidants that protect the brain from damage due to free radicals.
Taking Mind Boost Day the first time did not have any positive effect, which is a negative point for the day supplement. Nothing happened when Mind Boost Night was taken later that same day, which is a negative point for the night supplement. However, the second dose of both supplements did have little, but noticeable effects when taken the following day. Not quite a good sign but at least, there was progress happening.
As the days passed, the effects of both supplements did improve quite interestingly until the second week where it felt like the supposed positive effects of the supplements peaked. The following were noticed on the 14th day.
- There was ease in concentrating on something when it is needed and nothing was able to distract that concentration quickly and easily.
- Upon waking up, it did not take much time recalling what happened the previous day and what should be done on that day.
Bad Points and Good Points
Like most products, the Mind Boost Day and Night supplements have good and bad points. To help you decide, here is a list of those points in no particular order:
- It took days before the effects became noticeable and weeks before they peaked.
- It fares poorly when compared to the other nootropic supplements out there.
- It has to be ordered online and none of these supplements are available in stores.
- These supplements still serve their purpose effectively. There were improvements in concentration and in retaining memory.
- The formula is simple and the ingredients are all natural.
- These supplements are reasonably priced.
- Simple Smart Science offers a 4-month money back guarantee.
Given these points about the Mind Boost Day and Night supplements, it is easy to say that it fares fairly better than other the nootropic supplements out there. However, it still cannot compare and compete head-to-head with the stronger nootropics.
It is still a recommended purchase, especially if you want to go all-natural and not worry about the harmful side effects of stronger but synthetic nootropic drugs.
