Feedamind is a brand new nootropic supplement brought to us by Karobra Ltd, a company based in Ireland. Although they are new, they have a product that shows real promise, with a relatively complex formula made up of a variety of natural ingredients, vitamins, herbs and minerals.
I decided to put it to the test for a minimum of 30 days, taking 3 capsules per day – and below I’ll give you an overview of the impact it had on me, what you can expect from it, and ultimately whether it is a good fit for your specific needs.
Quick Verdict: Feedamind
Feedamind is an excellent new addition to the nootropic supplement market. In our 30 day testing it provided quick, clean, jitter free energy without any crashes.
The longer you take the supplement, the more the positive cognitive benefits take effect – with focus, concentration and greater energy the main benefits we felt.
Feedamind is sold as a cognition aid. It features 16 different ingredients, 2 of which fall under a proprietary blend – more on this later. Many of the ingredients it contains we see across the more established nootropic supplements, whereas some are present in only a few.
It seems that Feedamind are taking a one size fits all approach with their supplement and are looking to hit a wide range of cognitive benefits rather than focusing in on one or two areas.
Feedamind is a standalone brand, and is available directly through their own website. Although the company behind the brand is based in Ireland, all manufacturing processes are carried out in FDA compliant processing facilities in the USA.
Like most nootropics, the formula has been led by science backed clinical studies – and whilst there is a growing body of evidence behind many of the ingredients used, some are still a little less conclusive.
That being said, everything in Feedamind is completely natural, and should be safe for most people to consume. Pregnant women and those breastfeeding should always seek medical advice before starting a supplement such as this though – and Feedamind state that these groups should not take this supplement.
Feedamind pitch their target market quite widely. Essentially, anyone who can benefit from improved focus, greater mental clarity, higher levels of brain energy and motivation, reduced stress levels and a greater sense of calm – can all benefit from Feedamind.
In my mind this is everyone – after all, who wouldn’t want these benefits?
More specifically, Feedamind suggest that students, high powered execs, doctors, teachers, professors, gamers, sports people and other business professionals will all benefit from taking it.
Having tested Feedamind for a month, I wanted to see just how many (if any) of these benefits I felt, and how much they might help me as a writer and editor – to stay focused during the day – and then to feel a sense of calm and less anxiety throughout my day and evening.
Before I bring you my own experience with Feedamind – let’s take a look at the ingredients.
Feedamind has one of the most comprehensive ingredient profiles of any nootropic out there. They also have everything listed and dosed individually – with the exception of two ingredients which form part of a proprietary blend known as Chocamine Plus.
Let’s take a look at the ingredients and what you can expect to gain from them in a little more detail:
Vitamin B Complex
It always amazes me when any nootropic supplement does not include any form of vitamin B complex. Sometimes we see one or two B vitamins included, but Feedamind goes all in on the B vitamins with 4 in total.
We get Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), B6, B12 and B7 (Biotin) and we see a reasonable dose of each included with each serving.
Vitamin B1, B7 and B6 in particular are incredibly important to the production and repair of brain cells and any deficiency in these vitamins can severely impact short term and long term memory. Vitamin B12 has also been found to play a role in preventing or lowering the risk of dementia and Alzheimers disease.
You can also expect to see an improvement in mood, as well as increased blood flow to the brain – all of which should see you enjoy a cognitive boost and positive long term brain health.
We don’t often see B vitamins covered so well in nootropics so that’s very welcome here with Feedamind.
Choline and Alpha GPC
Alpha GPC is one of my go to ingredients when it comes to assessing the potential potency of a nootropic. There are some good natural nootropic supplements that don’t include it, but I always prefer to see it present.
We actually see it twice in the formula for Feedamind – which although a little bizarre, is still welcome. We see it combined as part of the vitamin complex as Choline (of which there is 40mg per serving) and then again as pure Alpha GPC (of which there is 100mg per serving).
Choline is a nutrient that we take from food, the body then converts it in to the chemical Alpha GPC in the body – and there is an ever growing body of evidence to show it impacts our mood, memory and other bodily functions in a positive way.
It is essential to good cognitive health and the more we can take through our nutritional intake and through supplementation the better.
I’d like to see it dosed a little higher than it is in Feedamind, but it still compares well against some of the market leaders such as NooCube – which give you just 50mg per serving.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that is popular amongst nootropics thanks to its stress relieving abilities. It can help boost and balance dopamine production and has also been found to improve memory and focus – although more data is needed to support the latter.
We see a very well dosed 250mg of L-Tyrosine in each serving of Feedamind – which is just about optimum and is in line with other nootropics.
Bacopa Monnieri Extract
We see 125mg of Bacopa Monnieri extract with each serving of Feedamind and although this appears low compared to some competitors, the bacoside content sits at 40% – showing that it is much more potent per mg – and is double the potency of some competitors.
Bacopa is well known for its impact on boosting executive function and has also been shown to reduce anxiety, improve mood and reduce inflammation in the body and brain.
It’s another must have ingredient for a top tier nootropic.
Another amino acid that is commonly used to elicit relaxation and a sense of calm is L-Theanine. It is commonly found in black tea and is present in some mushrooms, and although the dose of 50mg is relatively low (4 times lower than the highly potent Hunter Focus) there is enough here to do the job – especially when we see it combine with the other ingredients.
If you already drink black tea then this will top up your Theanine levels to a potent level.
Each serving of Feedamind contains 50mg of Dynamine – which is a trademarked Methylliberine supplement. In fact, some people will supplement with Dynamine in its own right.
It’s similar to caffeine in many ways, at least in the impact it has on how energized we feel. It is an alkaloid compound, a stimulant found in some coffee plants and will boost energy and focus.
It can also increase oxygen intake in to the bloodstream (and in to the muscles) which is why we sometimes see it found in pre-workout supplements.
It’s a very welcome inclusion here and works well alongside the caffeine content found in Chocamine Plus.
Pterostilbene is dosed here at 46.6mg and is an antioxidant commonly found in the superfood blueberries. It has a whole array of health benefits – not just limited to cognitive benefits – but its anti-inflammatory properties will certainly help all-round healthy brain functioning.
Cat’s Claw Extract
Having been used for centuries in ancient medicine, there is a some clinical support for Cat’s Claw Extract as helping to improve memory and short term recall.
The data around it is a little sketchy, but there is a lot of anecdotal evidence to support this natural herb.
Oat Straw Extract
Oat Straw is another traditional plant based inclusion that has some anecdotal support for its inclusion in Feedamind. 20mg (the same as Cat’s Claw) is enough to see some impact on memory and mood – that’s if the claims around it are valid.
An ingredient that is not needed in huge doses and we see it at an appropriate dose of 14.3mg in Feedamind (the exact same dose as NooCube) – Resveratrol is known to help improve blood flow and open up blood vessels.
Blood flow is key to cognitive health and I always have high hopes for any nootropic that includes Resveratrol in its formula.
We take Lutein in from a number of food types, including eggs, kale, grapes, squash, spinach and corn. It is a potent antioxidant and has a number of purported benefits – including eye health.
We don’t see it often in nootropics. It likely won’t have too much of a noticeable cognitive impact but it will be good for your all round health – especially your eye health.
Marigold Flower Extract
There is some evidence to support Marigold Flower Extract as helping to improve quality of sleep. There are plenty of other ingredients that can help in this regard – such as magnesium and chamomile – but anything that aids sleep will aid cognitive performance and brain cell growth and repair – at 6mg it’s likely not going to have a huge effect one way or the other.
Chocamine Plus is a form of cocoa extract which contains theobromine (at 12%), caffeine (at 8%) and polyphenols (at 5%).
It is again a supplement that you can take in its own right, but works better when included as part of a stack like Feedamind. It is dosed at a whopping 500mg in Feedamind which should see it have around 40mg of caffeine per serving – just under what you’d get in a cup of coffee.
When combined with the likes of Dynamine though, the chances are you are going to get a good initial boost from taking Feedamind.
Chocamine Plus state you should expect improved energy, stamina, concentration, mood and circulation as a result of taking it.
Let’s take a look at the costs involved with Feedamind before I tell you if it worked for me.
As mentioned earlier, you can only buy Feedamind directly from their website – which is usually a positive as it means you know you are getting the official product.
It is available in three different bundle sizes – with each bottle lasting 30 days.
Whether you buy the 1,2 or 3 month supply, the costs are relatively in line with the rest of the nootropic industry – and the 3 month supply is the most cost effective per serving, coming in at around $2.22 per serving.
Unlike some other nootropics, I’d suggest you opt for the full serving size (even if you are beginner) and you will probably want to go for at least the two month bundle to get the most from the bulk buy deals and give it a good chance to take effect.
My Experience With Feedamind
As someone who has tested all of the main players in the field of nootropics, I was excited to test Feedamind. It has a lot of similarities to NooCube and a few additional ingredients thrown in.
I always take at least one week off from any nootropics before testing and to help prepare for this Feedamind review I had a 10 day period where I didn’t take any nootropic supplements.
I felt some impact from day one. To be honest I expected this. The Methylliberine in the Dynamine and the caffeine in the Chocamine Plus should have given me increased brain energy around 30 minutes after taking Feedamind – and this is exactly what happened.
The L-Theanine must have taken the edge off as it was a calm energy and not a jittery or explosive energy followed by a crash.
I also felt more alive, awake and generally less fatigued for much longer than the stimulants alone would have offered – and this feeling only increased after the first week.
Then there wasn’t much else – until the end of week 3 and going in to week 4. The compounding effect of what is a seemingly well thought out formula was taking full effect.
I often find it hard to assess recall and memory. It’s not something I generally struggle with too much – probably due to the amount of nootropics I take – but I do sometimes get that afternoon brain fog – especially when writing.
This pretty much dissipated for me by the fourth week of taking Feedamind and I felt sharper for longer – with my morning energy definitely spilling in to much of my afternoon.
Feedamind is definitely not the most potent of nootropics, but it works. At least it did for me. And I would imagine for anyone just starting out on their cognition enhancing journey that Feedamind would likely be a great place to start.
Alternatives To Feedamind
I’ve mentioned two of the top competitors to Feedamind already in this review – Hunter Focus and NooCube. NooCube is the most similar, with a dose that closely matches Feedamind and a lot of crossover ingredients.
NooCube does not contain caffeine though – so for anyone looking for a caffeine free nootropic – I’d steer them towards NooCube. It’s a fair bit cheaper on the bulk buy deals and if you are caffeine sensitive or already consume caffeine then it’s a top alternative to Feedamind.
Then there’s Hunter Focus. Which really isn’t for the faint hearted and is possibly the most potent and highly dosed nootropic out there. It has a profile that can compete with the likes of Feedamind and packs a lot more caffeine too.
For anyone who has tried other nootropics and wants something faster acting and ultimately more potent – then Hunter Focus is a great alternative and you can check it out here.
Feedamind is an excellent addition to the nootropic marketplace. There is nothing specific that sets it apart from the competition but it has an excellent ingredient profile, is well dosed, fairly priced and does what it states.
Are there better alternatives out there? It depends on what you want. If your main aim is to achieve greater focus and brain energy and you’re okay with a small amount of caffeine – then there is little that beats Feedamind.
If you want something more powerful – you might need to look elsewhere.
