What is Optimind?
I’m reviewing Optimind because I believe in their business model sincerely (their product too, its a decent blend..nothing to write home about, but overall something I take occasionally.) Optimind is a stack with a blend of natural ingredients meant to significantly improve brain function. It is not the “Limitless” pill, and it won’t give you mental superpowers. What it can and will do, however, is improve the overall clarity of thought, potentially reducing anxiety, and improving memory and focus in the process.
Effects of Using Optimind
Opti-mind is intended to:
- Up-regulate crucial neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, dopamine, serotonin, and acetylcholine
- Increase energy and wakefulness
- Help the brain perform at a higher level
Before I get into the ingredients of Optimind, let’s talk about how to cheat their little system. So, if you’ve seen their ads all over the web, and/or if you’ve glanced at the image in this blog post promoting how you can get Opti-mind “free of charge,” then you’ve probably asked yourself “why would a company give away a product for free?” If that alarm went off in your head, (and rightfully as it should), then your not alone, as an entrepreneur myself, when they told me their business model, I was in-fact skeptical as to why in the world a company would do this (after all isn’t the goal of business to make money?)
Here’s why they do it…
- To get you to sign-up with your email: Leads in the online industry are huge, and when you’ve got an email list with 100,000+ you could easily be making millions off of it, a free sample is a small price to pay for this
- They want you to put in your credit card and subscribe to their service – (However, you can just cancel and get your sample totally free..): So they don’t actually send the free sample right away and for nothing, they don’t send it until you put in your credit card (they can’t see the info or anything and won’t bill you once they cancel, they’re a legit company, no fraud bs etc.). They do this because a large portion of people says, “Wow, you can get a free sample!” and get super excited, put in their credit card and sign-up. Once you do this, you have a full 2 weeks to cancel your subscription, and then once you do, you’ve successfully gotten a free sample. A large chunk of people, however, forget to cancel, meaning they get billed again (a bunch also really like the product and subscribe for a long time, this is also a large chunk of the companies revenue and the main reason why they do what they do.)
- In short, how to get a free sample of Optimind – Step 1: Sign-up with your credit card and email, give them your address and get the product. Step 2: Wait a few days after signing-up, wait until they send you their confirmation of shipment, and cancel your subscription. Voila! You’ve successfully schemed the companies business scheme, and have thus in-fact gotten free supplements over the internet. Amazing what a little hustling can do!
The product does this with a wide variety of nootropic ingredients, some natural and some synthetic, that help the brain and body create such as mental effect. The full breakdown of ingredients is as follows:
- Tyrosine – L-Tyrosine is the amino acid and precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. In the human brain, it literally helps the brain to increase its stores of dopamine at a rate faster than usual, when this is added to a stack that contains other stimulants, such as Sulbutiamine or Caffeine (like this one does;) it significantly alters brain patterns, and jacks up the potency noticeably.
- Sulbutiamine – Sulbutiamine is a mental stimulant that can increase the neurotransmitters dopamine and seratonin. It is a popular mood enhancing nootropic and comes from Vitamin B-1, it is more bioavailable in the brain than many other stimulant nootropics.
- Vinpocetine – Vinpocetine is a widely known potentiator nootropic. The gist of the drug is, when you take it with any other nootropics or stimulants, it makes them significantly stronger.
- GABA – GABA is a neurotransmitter and also a supplement. GABA is the relaxation neurotransmitter, it helps to chill you out, level out the stimulants in the combination, and to lower stress levels. As the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, it lowers heart rate
- Phosphatidylserine – Is a phospholipid and is important in the cell membranes of the brains neurons. A powerful anti-aging supplement, can help to preserve the brains cells and improve dopamine and acetylcholine uptake in the brain.
- Vitamin D-3 – An enhanced form of vitamin D, Needed for healthy production of serotonin in the brain. Vitamin D-3 can help improve and regulate mood.
- Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) – ALA is the detox nootropic, important for aiding the brain in removing heavy metals from the body and brain. Helps protect the brain, oxygenate it, and improve cell health.
- Huperzine A – Huperzine A is a nootropic that inhibits acetylcholinesterase, the bad inhibition neurotransmitter that blocks acetylcholine, opening the floodgates for acetylcholine to properly thrive.
- Caffeine – America’s Stimulant. Clinically proven to increase alertness, focus, and memory, the most popular stimulant in the world. Coffee in a capsule!
- Bacopa Monnieri – The memory herb nootropic. Bacopa has an anti-anxiety effect and has been used for centuries as a way of improving thought patterns, learning, and reducing stress.
- Taurine – The anti-stress amino acid. Helps protect against oxidative stress, protects brain cells, lowers cortisol levels, improves LTP.
- Vitamin B-12 – Typically found naturally in meat, high levels of this are linked to improved energy levels and mood.
In my own personal experience, Optimind relaxed me but gave me that “edge” at the same time it’s a lot more effective than a cup of coffee, and its a kind of nootropic stack that you can actually “feel” working, I’m actually subscribed to the stack now, its dam good!
Use Optimind in 1-2 capsules per day, serving size on the bottle is 2 capsules. At that dosage, the mental effects are fairly noticeable, and while I can’t make any direct claims, in my own personal experience, it lasts around 6 hours.
Since it has caffeine and some other stimulants in it, the only side effects that are possible are:
- Increased Thirst
No serious side effects have ever been reported from the stack thus far. And like 80% of the product is from herbs found entirely in nature so for the foreseeable future, there’s a good chance it’s going to stay that way.
How Long Do I Have Before I Am Billed?
You have 2 weeks to cancel, though I’d recommend doing it as soon as they email you your tracking information a day or so later, (you’ll forget otherwise, happens all the time!) If you do this, you’ll essentially be conning a legitimate supplement company into giving you free drugs, and isn’t that just amazing enough on its own? The catch is you have to put in your card number first, but then once you do that you can just wait until they ship, and then just cancel your subscription.
The company signs you up for a subscription when you sign-up, hoping that you’ll either:
- Love the product so much you’ll continue subscribing to nootropics every month, or
- Forget to cancel your card
Is An Online Purchase Safe?
They aren’t giving away something for free. They’re getting your emails and 100,000’s of others. That’s a ton of money, trust me.
Optimind really is a great company and offers a really great deal here in signing up to get a free sample. Seriously, free nootropics? How often does that come along really!??!
