Frequently Asked Questions
Q: WHAT ARE NOOTROPICS ANYWAY?
A: According to Wikipedia, nootropics are defined as follows:
Nootropics (/noʊ.əˈtrɒpɪks/ noh-ə-TROP-iks) (colloquial: smart drugs and cognitive enhancers) are drugs, supplements, and other substances that may improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation, in healthy individuals.
At MasterMind Nootropics, we don't use "drugs"... no pharmaceutical ingredients and we are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality, direct-sourced organic ingredients so you can have the safest experience possible. Our formulators travel the world to find only the best ingredient and in many cases, actually own or lease the farms upon which the plants are grown, thereby staying in control of product sourcing.
Our mission is to provide you with the best possible experience possible because when you are at your best, you can do more great things in the world... and that's what we really want... to help make the world a better place. We need to be at our best and you to be at your best to make that happen!
Q: WHAT IS MASTERMIND NOOTROPICS?
A: MasterMind Nootropics is a nutritional supplement/nutraceuticals company focused on high-performance, high-experience drink mixes and capsules. The core of the business is helping our clients create the highest possible levels of peak performance, whether that's going from Sick to Superhuman or Already Awesome to Master of the Universe in terms of your peak mental and physical performance.
Q: HOW DO MASTERMIND NOOTROPICS PRODUCTS WORK?
A: We believe we have contracted with the most talented and knowledgeable formulators on the planet to create our products. Our blends immediately go to work by distributing specific nutrients to your brain and bloodstream. These nutrients improve recall, memory, synaptic response, energy, blood flow, oxygen and nitric oxide levels in the blood. They pass through your cell membranes to renew and improve your cells, reducing age and stress-related symptoms.
They also support the production of dopamine, serotonin, acetylcholine and key neurotransmitters. This increases both cognitive thinking and helps you feel good at the same time. In a real, healthy way.
The bottom line is that we want to improve your life at every level... BODY, MIND, ENERGY, SEX AND SLEEP!
Q: WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO EXPERIENCE WHEN TAKING MASTERMIND NOOTROPICS PRODUCTS?
A: While everyone's experience will be a bit different, generally speaking, within about 15-30 minutes, you will get a subtle to moderately intense “rush” (depending on your dose, dilution and sensitivity). This is accompanied by a desire to act on whatever needs to be done – along with a series of creative “spikes” that ebb and flow for the next 4-8 hours. What you do with your time is your business. But you’ll have the energy, motivation and confidence to do almost anything you want.
If you are familiar with the movie "Limitless" (starring Bradley Cooper), it was a big inspiration for creating our products and while we aspire to that level of performance, we certainly can't claim that level of enhancement. But the idea is what keeps us constantly upgrading our products.
In contrast to the "Clear Pill" (NZT-48) from Limitless, our IQPotion+ (as one example... but this applies to ALL of our products) won't degrade your mind if you quit taking it. In fact, we developed our formulas to improve your mind and body in permanent ways. So there is no dependency, although you may find the continued peak performance somewhat addicting (after all, who doesn't want to perform at their best highest levels every day?)
Q: I AM NEW TO NOOTROPICS AND YOU HAVE A VARIETY OF PRODUCTS...WHERE IS A GOOD PLACE TO START?
A: We get that question a lot and it is not always an easy one to answer.
Here's why... Your journey into peak performance through nootropics is going to be an ongoing individual experiment that you will adjust and tweak over time. Our products are as unique as you are, so paying attention to how each product affects you and keeping us informed about that is an important part of the process.
With that stated, if you are brand new and never tried a nootropic before, we recommend that you first assess what you want the product to do for you.
We have products that positively affect cognitive abilities (memory, focus, attention, intelligence, problem-solving, etc.) and other that help you with sleep or strength and sexual function.
We customize each order for you, as long as you provide us with the intake form initially, followed by an update form for subsequent orders.
You are probably beginning to understand already that there is no easy answer to this question... but if you are brand new and looking for a great, positive experience, you might want to try IQPotion+ as a starting point. You are likely to experience multiple benefits including increased energy, focus, memory and critical thinking/problem-solving...pretty important features for most of us, regardless of what we're doing, right?
Men might also want to try NooMan+ and/or MegaMan+ as well, to enhance your workouts, boost testosterone and..well, let's just say, make bedroom (or wherever) performance more enjoyable and functional.
Is sleep a problem for you? You know, sleep is the #1 mind-bending nootropic, but only if you're getting quality sleep. Our SleepMaster+ product is phenomenal for helping you get to sleep, stay asleep and getting the quality of sleep you need to have your brain and body firing on all cylinders!
One of our very favorite products to use in conjunction with everything else is our ClearMind+ capsules and ClearMind+ sublingual spray. Helps to recharge overtaxed neurons, eliminate brain fog and help you feel rejuvenated after long days of "brain-work" or stress-filled daily life.
Needless to say, we're huge fans of ALL of our products... but only you can decide what is best for you. If we can help, just let us know.
Q: ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SAFE?
A: Yes. Every component of MasterMind Nootropics products is naturally derived. Our aim was both high performance brain and body improvements AND age reversal. So, unlike The Clear Pill in Limitless, you don’t suffer from blackouts or accelerated aging (or worse).
As long-time natural health practitioners, this was a vital area for us...SAFETY FIRST. For the MD/ND's who are involved in the development of our wide range of nutritionals, this was non-negotiable.
Q: DO YOU REALLY CUSTOMIZE EACH ORDER?
A: We really do! All of our products are hand-made to order, customized just for you.
We carry no inventory on the shelf. And create each batch per tube or capsule to spec, at the time of your order.
We follow FDA guidelines concerning isolation and cleanliness of both raw product and completed formulas.
We strive to ensure you're receiving the very best solutions to your health, in a Compounding Pharmacy process.
We never ship the product that has been formulated for another customer, nor do we inventory any of our raw Nutrients more than 30 days. We maintain our raw nutrients in isolated, refrigerated enclosures until we customize your specific formulation.
Q: HOW DO I MAXIMIZE THE RESULTS OF YOUR PRODUCTS?
A: The most critical elements you'll find, once you receive your order, are:
1) How you slept the night before. Because the brain builds up toxins during the day, and detoxifies them in the evening, this is often one of the more critical factors.
2) Your current physical condition. Better is better. But we have plenty of sedentary writers and others who “sit for work” who really appreciate the brain charge.
3) Dosage timing. I like to start my day with the Booster Cap (that comes with IQPotion+ or MindElixr+) and a NooMan+ (because nootropics, vitamins, oils and testosterone boost are an incredible blend!).
The "Magic" Is In The Mix
1) The blend, and matching it to your current physiology (sex, weight, physical condition, and the areas you need boosted) is one of the many things that set our products apart from other "off the shelf" option. PLEASE COMPLETE THE CUSTOMIZATION FORM. This goes into a massive database we've built over the last 7 years, providing us the exact data points we need to correctly assess your physiology, and how to blend your formula. Without it, you are guaranteed to receive a watered-down version of our formula (in order to reduce any issues not provided an incomplete or missing Medical Intake Form).
2) The amount of each element in the blend. You get the best results when certain nootropics are at a high level, but not TOO high. In this case, less can be more. The choline donor type and amount, adaptogens and the neural and physiological stimulants are all blended to match your Medical Intake Form. And your follow-up formulas will be adjusted based on your completion of the FEEDBACK FORM. Please keep that in mind for best results.
3) When and how you take it (as an example, taking IQPotion+ with food dulls the effect – proteins compete with nootropics and amino acids. Taking it 30 minutes after a meal amplifies it, based on the types of foods in your diet.)
We’ve worked with a Doctor and a Naturopathic Physician to ensure the components we use are not only safe, but healthy and often age reversing as well. Three of the elements have strong clinical evidence that show a reversal the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia (Centrophenoxine, Phosphatidylcholine, Phosphatidylserine). ADD/ADHD is improved by Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, Aniracetam/Oxirecetam/Prameracetam and Piracetam with Choline.
It’s not a "magic" pill but is is an incredibly powerful blend that will not likely ever make it into mainstream America (what is the obesity level in America? The CDC says that number was 35.7% in 2011. And headed higher.)
Many of these people will never take a product like MasterMind Nootropics IQPotion+ for example, because while our product tastes good, it does not taste like candy. And it is motivating and pushes you to “move” both mind and body. This may be uncomfortable for a large percentage of the population. But that's why you're here! You are an exception to the rule; someone who values peak performance and experiential quality of life.
We can help make you smarter. But the "do something amazing" part is still up to you!
We encourage you to do something truly amazing. You won’t regret it.
