INTRODUCTION TO NOOTROPICS:
Start Smarter & Sleep Smarter
Nootropics are incredibly popular supplements used for mental and physical performance, creative energy, long lasting focus, and recovery. This guide will teach you how to use Momental’s nootropic blends and achieve your goals.
Short answer: nootropics are nutrients for brain energy and protection.
Slightly longer answer:
- Our brain is another muscle that thrives with the right nutrition.
- Nootropic blends combine the best brain and body nutrients.
- Herbal nootropics consist of substrates that elevate levels of naturally occurring compounds in your brain and body.
- By elevating levels of acetylcholine, sirtuins, phospholipid layering, NAD+, and NADH, nootropics improve cognitive performance, healthy aging, healing, recovery, and optimize cellular health, and therefore your health.
HOW DO NOOTROPICS WORK?
Herbal nootropics consist of substrates that elevate natural compounds that your brain uses for neuroprotection, energy, processing, memory, and recovery.
Neuroprotection for brain cells by preventing cognitive decline and increasing neurogenesis (new brain cells)
Increase mental energy stores day and night with nutrients that cross the blood-brain barrier (great for sustained focus)
Neurons love the right fats for speeding up neural transmission (process more information faster)
Improve memory, and decision-making with nutrients used for Alzheimer’s treatment.
WHY TAKE NOOTROPIC BLENDS?
Nootropics provide awesome benefits to our brain and body. The most popular are:
MENTAL PERFORMANCE: Nootropics before and during cognitively demanding tasks provide needed energy to brain cells, increasing mental output, and information processing.
MEMORY ENHANCEMENT: Improve short and long term memory, and recall with nootropics used in Alzheimer's treatment.
BURN FAT: Nootropics combined with fat burning compounds elevate resting metabolism for lipids. Eating healthy fats helps you burn fat.
LONGEVITY & HEALTHY AGING: Protect your cells, and raise levels of NAD+, sirtuins and phospholipids, which decline with aging.
HOW TO START TAKING MOMENTAL MIND AND MEND
No hesitation necessary, start taking immediately and experience incredible changes : )
MIND comes in cocoa and unflavored powder. Simply mix 1-2 scoops per day in water or add to your favorite smoothie or beverage.
We encourage you to cut down your coffee consumption or eliminate it and substitute MIND in its place. We love our coffee too, but really it’s just stimulating your CNS, giving you the perception of mental energy, without any real support. If you love your coffee too much, just add MIND to balance the effects from caffeine.
Take in addition to your meal for better nutritional balance, or use as a meal replacement. Eating 3 meals a day is not necessary, especially if you’re sedentary. Use Mind in place of any meal to nourish your brain and body while you cut out unnecessary calories.
MEND is our nootropic blend for anxiety and stress reduction. Take 2-3 capsules up to 2x per day for calm focus, neurological repair, and restorative health.
For a nighttime sleep aid, take 2-3 capsules 30 minutes before bed to enhance brain cell recovery, and achieve deep, restorative sleep.
Momental MIND and MEND are Keto friendly. We formulated our nootropic blends with Keto in mind. No added sugar or carbohydrates, just pure nutrition, super clean, for super healthy living.
THE BEST WAYS TO DRINK MOMENTAL MIND
We recommend 1 scoop per 8 oz of liquid. If you’re about to workout and need more energy, additional caloric value from healthy fats like MCTs is an awesome option and keto friendly.
Mind chocolate is made with cocoa and is delicious, no added sugar either. Stevia has no caloric value and will not kick you out of ketosis. Enjoy with cold water or jazz up one of your favorite shakes.
We know we said no coffee, but we understand you can’t give it up, and neither have we. So mix Mind unflavored or Mind cocoa to add real mental energy to your morning routine.
Making your own almond milk is super easy, and we highly recommend using it or coconut cream for healthy liquid bases to your blended drinks and smoothies. It’s really delicious and you’ll feel amazing.
Unflavored is versatile, excellent with almond milk, and won’t change the taste of your preferred beverage.
Cocoa is excellent in water, in coffee and almond milk blends, and really tastes like a cheat. Don’t worry, no guilt necessary for this treat. The more taste averse should choose Mind cocoa.
THE BEST TIMES TO TAKE MOMENTAL NOOTROPICS
- Mind in the morning or in place of meals to put your brain into overdrive.
- On an empty stomach for maximum absorption, peak mental performance, and sustained focus
(Momental Pro Tip: Take in place of carb heavy breakfast foods)
- Mend at anytime of day for stress and anxiety reduction, and 30 minutes before bed for deep sleep.
(Momental Pro Tip: Take 1-1.5 hour(s) prior to bed if you experience grogginess in the am - We say deep sleep for a reason)
- Mend is non drowsy, so don’t worry about collapsing before your board meeting.
WHY ARE MIND and MEND SO GOOD FOR ME?
In today’s world of ever increasing information and overstimulation, there is a vast need to process, store, and decipher information faster in order to implement and execute in our daily lives.
We don’t believe in synthetic drugs that alter your chemical structure, flood receptors, and change the uptake or inhibition of neurotransmitters (brain cell communicators).
We use herbal nootropic substrates that are known through scientific research to elevate levels of naturally occurring compounds in your brain that contribute to memory, processing, creativity, and decrease anxiety and stressors that can further cause damage to your cell structure.
When it comes to our nootropic blends, we didn’t stop there. Our Mind formula combines nootropics with grass-fed collagen protein so your joints and muscle tissue can recover, healthy fats from MCTs to burn fat and produce vital and fast energy, and organic greens loaded with antioxidants and anti inflammatories. Mend is formulated for decreasing cognitive anxiety and mental stressors, and includes nootropics known to restore cellular health, regenerate neurons, and boost natural levels of melatonin, serotonin, and precursors for NAD+ and sirtuins (anti-aging).
WHERE DO YOUR NOOTROPICS COME FROM?
We use high quality nutrients sourced, tested, and manufactured in the Unites States, from GMP certified facilities that undergo stringent internal and external 3rd party testing.
ARE MOMENTAL NOOTROPICS FREE OF GLUTEN, DAIRY, SOY, AND NUTS? IS IT VEGAN AND NON GMO? IS IT ALL NATURAL?
Both Mind and Mend are gluten, dairy, soy, and nut free. Mend is completely vegan. Mind contains grass-fed bovine collagen. Both are all natural and non-GMO.
DOES MOMENTAL HAVE CAFFEINE?
Mind only contains caffeine that occurs naturally in green tea. We balance the mild stimulant effect with L-theanine, which produces a calm focus without jittery anxiety. There is approximately 100mg or less of caffeine per serving. Mend is caffeine free.
CAN I SKIP THE CARBS WHILE TAKING MOMENTAL?
Here at Momental, we are all about low carb to no carb depending on your activity level and energy demands. For cognitive performance, carbohydrates for fuel are slow out of the gate, and with so many carbs being consumed from processed foods, loaded with added sugar, we just steer clear, and think that you should too. If you’re going into the office all day, the excess carbs and sugar (yeah, it’s in there- delete) are going to be stored as fat in your body, and they also don’t deliver clean energy to your brain. So unless you’re training aggressively and working out like a maniac, you really don’t need a lot of carbs. Carbs from whole foods and vegetables will be enough.
WHAT IF IT GIVES ME GUT PROBLEMS?
Nootropics do not typically result in any GI distress. In some cases people experience a mild upset stomach from digesting MCTs, which are contained in Mind for connective tissue, muscle, bone, and joint health. We find this tradeoff too good to pass up since upset stomachs are rare. Try ½ a scoop to start if mixing in water, take at mealtime or otherwise add almond milk or a similar base that will help coat your stomach if you experience any discomfort.
ARE NOOTROPICS DANGEROUS?
All of our nootropics are herbal supplements that are GRAS certified and deemed over the counter by the FDA. Our recommended doses are far below those with any reports of negative side effects. Side effects are incredibly rare, and would more likely trigger an allergy than cause harm. It’s important to know what you are allergic to prior to taking any supplement, and a simple blood test performed at your clinic of choice can help you determine any allergies you may have.
WHAT’S UP WITH PHENIBUT?
Mend contains phenibut. Phenibut is an over the counter supplement deemed so by the FDA. Those who have claimed disturbances such as “phenibut high” or any dependency have done so at doses that exceed 2g per day, with reports as high as 20g per day. Any dependency issues are clouded with reports of alcohol and drug abuse. “I was taking 10g of phenibut per day and could drink more without feeling the same alcohol effects.” You can find similar quotes all over the internet. If you consume coffee or caffeine and then drink alcohol you end up with a similar result. Our recommended dose of Mend per day is 2-3 capsules no more than 2x per day and keeps your phenibut intake around 300mg. We must also point out that there is no evidence to date outside of these anecdotal reports that phenibut at recommended doses can result in dependency.
HOW DOES INGESTING HEALTHY FATS HELP YOU BURN FAT?
Certain healthy fats like MCTs are more satiating, leaving you fuller for longer. They also contribute fast, usable energy to your brain and body. The secret to the fat burning component is that they elevate resting metabolism, which can help you burn unwanted fat that has been stored from excess sugar and processed carbs. Nootropics like alpha lipoic acid and others in Mind, help to break down fatty acids, and promote thermogenesis, in which your body uses a greater amount of energy to burn calories. Combining Mind into a proper diet and exercise regimen will contribute to rapid weight and fat loss. No tricks, just real nutrition, for really healthy lifestyles.
HOW DO I USE NOOTROPICS?
We recommend Mind, our daily nootropic blend to be taken in the morning or before work with your favorite beverage. 1-2 scoops, 1-2x per day. Mend is our nighttime sleep and recovery formula, but it’s also loaded with all natural, stress and anxiety reducing nutrients. So you can take 2-3 capsules, 2x per day for social anxiety, or work related stress. As a nighttime sleep aid, take 2-3 capsules 30 minutes before bed for deep sleep. Mend can be taken during your morning and night routine, and it’s non drowsy. It just depends on the person, and once you experiment a little you will gravitate toward the best time of day for you to use Mind or Mend.
ARE MIND AND MEND NOOTROPIC BLENDS SAFE FOR CHILDREN?
The reason we don't have information on kids and teens is because studies do not exist for efficacy or safety for this population. It's also the same issue for pregnant women. Is Mind or Mend or any supplement harmful for these groups, I would argue that no they are not and most aren't, but these groups aren't participating in scientific studies. The former is illegal, and the latter, well try and get a pregnant woman to sign up for a research study. All of our ingredients are safe for use in Adults, and the upper threshold of determined safety for use is much higher than our dosing. Post pubescent teenagers have physiology that more closely resembles an adult and a reasonable argument could be made that this group would benefit and not be harmed by our products, anymore than a random allergy could occur or what could be attributed to probability and chance. That being said, the FDA has not evaluated the safety for use by children or pregnant women for any supplement.
