Frequently Asked Questions
We invite you to check out our nutrition blog that details all of the nutrients in our products and highlights the benefits, uses, recommendations, and most importantly the scientific facts. All of our nutrients were chosen based on scientific research that shows efficacy for results.
Raise your levels of NAD+(coenzyme), and sirtuins(proteins that are biological regulators) which are needed for optimal cellular function and are known to decline with aging. Healthy, high functioning cells equals a healthier you. As we age our body and mind undergo substantial physiological changes to underlying processes that affect memory, mood, cognition, creativity, muscle performance and recovery. Nootropics have been studied extensively in Alzheimer's and dementia research and have shown positive impacts on cognitive decline. They’ve also been implicated for their positive effects on training, physical performance, and tissue recovery.
All of the nutrients detailed in our blog are validated with current and past research with links to positive study findings. We designed our formulas based on nutrients that have demonstrated the most meaningful and statistically significant changes for brain and body health. Our blends combine nootropics with organic greens, healthy fats, collagen protein and more. So you get all of the benefits of phytonutrients, polyphenols, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and real energy.
More than just a Nootropic. Momental MIND and MEND blends include all natural brain enhancing nutrients in combination with healthy fats from MCTs, organic greens and grass-fed collagen protein for a full day's nutrition.

What makes MEND so great is that it can be taken outside of normal bedtime without making you feel drowsy. We recommend taking MEND 30 minutes before bedtime for optimal sleep quality, but keep in mind MEND is formulated for stress and anxiety and can be taken prior to social engagement or whenever you need to promote relaxation.

We created MIND & MEND to be all encompassing for a full day's nutrition and recovery. Depending on your day's performance and physicality demands you could benefit from additional nutrients. For example: if you're training harder/longer you may want more collagen protein or more healthy fats for greater energy expenditure.
There has only been one case report of Phenibut withdrawal for someone who was taking it in doses that exceeded several grams per day. Phenibut is a legal substance approved as an over the counter supplement by the FDA. There is no evidence to date that Phenibut is addictive. Conflicting evidence of alcohol and cocaine abuse is noted in the few studies that discuss Phenibut intoxication and withdrawal. In those reports where alcohol or drugs aren't involved, doses of phenibut stated to cause withdrawal exceeded 10g per day on average. Mend includes 150mg (NOT GRAMS) of Phenibut and 2-3 capsules are recommended no more than 2x per day. This dose is far below any of the reported doses that have been linked to withdrawal.
Phenibut crosses the blood brain barrier and activates neuron receptors (receptors on brain cells) and the way our neurons communicate with each other. This further stimulates GABA-a and Gaba-b receptors. GABA-a is a ligand gated ion channel, and the reason this is important is because Ligands contribute to receptor activation and are known to have anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), euphoric, and muscle relaxant effects. The exact mechanism of action is still being studied but recently Phenibut was found to be in a similar class with gabapentin and pregabalin. It is generally accepted that phenibut has anxiolytic effects. Your mind is therefore achieving deeper sleep by allowing greater activation of these channels and neuronal communication. Think of it as a mind expansion while asleep. It's a healthy sign to dream, and we should all be dreaming and remembering more.
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 it's 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.
If you are on blood thinning medications, like warfarin(coumadin) ginkgo is a natural vasodilator, so risk for bleeding would be higher as the vessels expand. Obviously a trauma would still have to take place to cause an aperture to spur bleeding. Overall there aren't contraindications for medications, but that doesn't rule it out for every single person. A great tool is the Epocrates app, you can download it from the app store or google play and enter all of your specific medications and the substances you want to check and it will let you know if there are any known drug interactions.
There are no studies that evaluate the efficacy of all of the ingredients contained within Mind and Mend for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Pregnant or breastfeeding women are recommended to speak with their PCP or physician to determine their safety in using Momental products, and really any supplement. Side effects are extremely rare, but cannot be ruled out as there is a lack of research for these groups.
