Why Higher Mind?

Higher Mind was carefully formulated with the best available ingredients found in nature to help fine tune the mind. These ingredients, referred to as nootropics, are a category of supplements that directly support cognitive health in both the short- and long-term.

“We were inspired to develop Higher Mind because we couldn't find any available solution on the market that combines best-in class natural ingredients in a package as easy to consume as it is effective” Noah Berman, Head of Product for Higher Mind. "We wanted to make it easy, we put everything your brain needs in one bottle."

How does Higher Mind work?

Each ingredient found in Higher Mind products works differently, but together, they help to increase the overall level and efficacy of neurotransmitters (brain hormones) that relate to motivation, focus, and memory formation. Several of our ingredients have been known to help with the production of new brain cells. Higher Mind also includes antioxidants that help purge the body of free radicals to prevent aging in the brain.


What are nootropics?

Nootropics are compounds like functional amino acids, nutrients, and minerals that help your mind and body perform at its best. Nootropics can boost your energy, increase focus and mental clarity, and manage stress and improve mood. There are also nootropics that have anti-aging benefits and help with sleep to improve cellular health and help you feel better throughout your day

Nootropics can be naturally-occurring or man-made.


How do nootropics work?

Nootropics work by stimulating and protecting neurons in your brain from becoming damaged by toxins and aging. These brain vitamins engage neurons and increase blood and oxygen flow to your brain, which improves memory, concentration, and overall brain health.  

Because nootropics work by stimulating different neurotransmitters in the brain, their benefits can be different. You can learn more about the effectiveness of our active nootropic ingredients.


How does Higher Mind differ from coffee?

Coffee, a nootropic drink, has been the go-to source of energy across the globe and is a nootropic drink.  Specifically, caffeine is the nootropic active ingredient. It works by blocking receptors which reduces the feeling of fatigue.  This effect is temporary and a stop gap band-aid, not a solution. It inevitably leads to a crash, particularly if you drink large amounts.  While most caffeine-based products have antioxidants and some caffeine is healthy and safe when not over consumed, it is not a great source to boost cognitive function.

While Higher Mind does use a small amount of caffeine in some of our products, it is not our primary mechanism of action for brain boosting benefits. The benefits of our product are cumulative and improve mental functioning and agility over time. The ingredients in Higher Mind restore the body and nourish cells over time to provide a greater benefit with consistent use.


How do we know natural nootropics work?

According to NCBI, The National Center for Biotechnology Information, natural nootropics are proven in boosting brain function while at the same time making the brain healthier.

The best nootropics contain only natural, clean ingredients. 

At Higher Mind, it is important to us to undergo several efficacy tests to determine that Higher Mind’s claims are true and safe. All Higher Mind products are reviewed by a panel of doctors for effectiveness.
