OmniMind® is based on scientific research.
Underneath each ingredient you can find the corresponding scientific publications.
The key ingredient in OmniMind® is Bacopa Monnieri, a nootropic herb that improves processing speed, memory retention and enhances learning ability.
Bacopa Monnieri is used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine and has shown to stimulate the protein synthesis in the hippocampus. The part of the brain has an important role long term memory retention. The active compounds in BM, bacosides, is evaluated for its effects on the brain health. Research has shown the positive influence on brain cells and regeneration of brain tissue. (1)(2)(3)

Rhodiola is widely used for increasing stamina and mental capacity. Besides, as an adaptogen, Rhodiola extract helps the body to adapt and resist both physical and environmental stress. Native to the Arctic regions of Europe, Asia, and Alaska, it has a history of use as a medicinal plant. Other common effects experienced by the intake of Rhodiola are an improved mood, motivation and overall sense of well-being. (4)(5)(6)

Tyrosine is one of the twenty natural alpha amino acids who contribute to the protein synthesis. Next to the natural presence, Tyrosine is used to reduces stress levels and optimize our cognitive functioning. In 1989, Banderet has done a research which shows that soldiers who took the supplementation of Tyrosine experience less stress, less tiredness and better mental capabilities. (7)
Scientific Research: (7) Treatment with tyrosine, a neurotransmitter precursor, reduces environmental stress in humans. [PMID 2736402]
This amino-acid is primarily extracted from green tea leaves or the edible mushroom bay bolete, commonly found in North America and Europe during the autumn season.
L-Theanine is known to reach the brain following oral ingestion and is proven to reduce stress, improve attention and increase the immunity. (8)

Caffeine occurs naturally in the leaves, fruits or seeds from more than 60 plant species. For example in coffee beans, yerba mate leafs, guarana seeds, and cacao beans. Caffeine belongs to the group of ingredients that stimulates the central nervous system. Research has shown that low to moderate caffeine doses improve alertness, vigilance, attention, reaction time and attention (9)
Scientific Research: (9) A review of caffeine’s effects on cognitive, physical and occupational performance. [PMID: 27612937]
In OmniMind®, caffeine is represented in combination with theanine. Studies have shown the combination of both as long lasting, less jittery, more effective and without a dip when the caffeine is not anymore present in the body. Research from Haskell confirms: faster simple reaction time, faster numeric working memory reaction time and improved sentence verification accuracy. (10)

DMAE Bitartrate is a naturally occurring compound in the brain and can also be found in food like anchovies or sardines. As a precursor to the neurotransmitter choline, DMAE Bitartrate plays an important role in brain functioning and cognitive acuity and affect how good you feel to how much mental energy you have. Furthermore, Choline has been shown to directly influence the areas of learning and memory.
Scientific Research: (11) New insights on dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) features as a free radical scavenger.
NADH stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) + hydrogen (H). NADH occurs naturally in the body and is used for improving mental clarity, alertness, concentrationand memory.
Because of its role in energy production, NADH is also used for improving endurance and fighting fatigue. As a potent antioxidant, Co Enzyme NADH protects the body from free radicals and supports cellular health.
Niacin or Vitamin B3 is a vitamin that can be generate in the body through the amino acid tryptophane. EFSA, the European Food Safety Authority has confirmed several health benefits for the dietary intake of vitamin B3. The most common health benefits of Vitamin B3 are contributing to normal energy-yielding metabolism, the normal function of the nervous system, normal psychological functions and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Vitamin B12 is a small organic compound that is essential for our body. Since your body doesn’t make vitamin B12, you have to get it from animal-based foods or from supplements. Vitamin B12 reduces fatigue and supports our memory.
Vitamin B5 or Pantothenic Acid is the amide between pantoic acid and β-alanine. Studies have proven the relation between Vitamin B5 and the contribution to our mental performance.
The three B-vitamins used in N°1 from OmniMind are also referred to as the neuro-vitamins.
Bioperine (Piper Nigrum)
The extract piperine, derived from the fruit of the black pepper plant, has numerous documented reports on bio-enhancing features. The trademarked version we use in N°1 from OmniMind is Bioperine®. Bioperine® is known for its purified quality and is treasured for its absorption-enhancing properties.
