From Groggy to Alert

"This is a great addition to my morning coffee routine. After taking Magic Mind, I feel mentally wide awake and ultra-productive without the jitters of drinking too much coffee."

Kylie C.

The Story

After a trip to the E.R. nearly a decade ago, I was diagnosed with a heart condition, and my doctor told me about the two major culprits: too much stress and too much caffeine (and that they were related).

I was running a company of about 50 employees, and he told me that I needed to limit my caffeine intake to one coffee per day. He mentioned green tea, saying that it has an amino acid called L-Theanine that will extend the absorption of caffeine and “give you calmness while keeping you alert.”

It had never occurred to me that adding ingredients to caffeine would improve its effectiveness and decrease stress… It’s been a wild journey since, and 7 years of research into the space of nootropics, adaptogens, and nutritional mushrooms (and 55+ iterations) later, I’m now sharing this little morning concoction with you. Scientifically designed to support focus, calmness, energy, and productivity, Magic Mind is your new favorite morning ritual.

Productivity is more than energy

Energy
Energy

Energy and alertness is a cornerstone of productivity, but it's not the only one. Coffee and most energy drinks will give you alertness but the benefits largely stop there.

Cognition

We all know that energy without focus can be the opposite of productive. So we've designed Magic Mind to incorporate ingredients that support memory, increase creativity, and boost focus.

Balance

Energy without balance is also counter-productive. Magic Mind is also designed with balance in mind, incorporating herbs for safe and effective stress reduction, calmness, and lifted mood.

Magic Mind Principles

At Magic Mind, we don't have "pillars" or "values" that are meant to help us win when it comes to business. We have Principles — our ideals that we aim to live by, inside and outside of work, and these have nothing to do with "winning" (and others losing):

Honesty
Honesty

Anything we put our name on, publicly or privately, any claim, any list of ingredients, we stand by. Trust in a brand and the team behind that brand is the highest priority for us.

Health
Healthy

We consume our own products daily, and we share them with our families and friends, and we make every effort to choose sustainable and organic choices with each of our ingredients.

Customer First
Customer-First

We're not company-first. We're customer-first. Please send us any feedback, and you will receive a reply from one of our team leads here. We consistently read each review, rotate through customer support, conduct surveys, gather feedback, and we're always looking for more insight from our customers.

Eco-Aware
Eco-Awareness

At Magic Mind, we're committed to a carbon-neutral company through proceeds going back to reforestation projects as well as choosing our plant-based ingredients from farms that are committed to sustainable practices (and we're currently working on a zero-waste option for customers!).

Carbon Neutral
Environmental

Magic Mind contributes to environmental reforestation programs in Northern California and the Amazon rainforest to offset the carbon emissions impact of producing, packaging, and selling consumable bottles. We’re committed to being a 100% carbon neutral enterprise in partnership with Pachama.com.

FAQs

What is in Magic Mind?

magicmind.com/science


You can also read about the science and safety of our ingredients in our Amazon bestselling book “Beyond Coffee: A Sustainable Guide to Nootropics, Adaptogens, and Mushrooms”

How should I consume Magic Mind?

Dropdown Arrow

Unlike many energy drinks, Magic Mind’s benefits don’t come from excessive amounts of stimulating compounds like caffeine. ‍ Though most people feel an energy boost within an hour of consuming Magic Mind, the full benefits of all the ingredients, like Ashwagandha or Lion’s Mane mushrooms, can take 7-10 days to take full effect. ‍

That is why we recommend taking the Magic Mind 14-day challenge — to add it to your morning routine for two weeks straight to see if you feel a boost in your productivity and focus.

Do I take it alongside coffee or tea?

Dropdown Arrow

Yes. Take alongside or in place of your morning caffeine. :) ‍

Magic Mind has minimal amounts of caffeine and is meant to be consumed as a supplement alongside your current morning routine. If you drink two-three cups of coffee during the day, Magic Mind will satisfyingly replace one to two of those cups by extending the caffeine of your current morning routine. It can also replace it entirely if you're trying to reduce your caffeine intake.

Can I take it on an empty stomach?

Dropdown Arrow

Many people drink Magic Mind on an empty stomach without problem, but green tea on an empty stomach can be an issue for some. We recommend a light meal within 30 minutes before or after drinking if you discover it is an issue for you.

Can this interact with medicines? Who shouldn't take Magic Mind?

Dropdown Arrow

Yes, turmeric curcumin and ashwagandha can interact with some medications like SSRIs and blood-thinning medication, so please consult your physician if you are on medications currently. Turmeric is also not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.

Do I need to cycle off?

Dropdown Arrow

As with all nootropics, we recommend cycling off of Magic Mind occasionally to make sure that your body doesn’t develop a tolerance and reduce the efficacy of the shot over time.

For those taking Magic Mind daily, we recommend taking one week off every 2-3 months to give your system a chance to get back to a baseline of activity. If you already take weekends off, then a full week off is not necessary.

What kind of matcha does Magic Mind use?

Dropdown Arrow

We use premium organic Japanese, ceremonial-grade matcha in each bottle of Magic Mind. ‍

This is the highest quality category of Japanese matcha, and we are proud of the lengths that our tea farmers go through to produce such a high quality matcha.

How much caffeine is in Magic Mind?

Dropdown Arrow

Magic Mind contains 30-35mgs of naturally occurring caffeine (from the matcha green tea). This is about the equivalent of ~1/4 cup of coffee.

Is Magic Mind gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly, vegan-friendly, and keto-friendly?

Dropdown Arrow

Magic Mind is gluten-free, and nut-free. Magic Mind is also paleo-friendly. We do use a 1200mg of honey per serving, which makes it a consideration for vegan and keto customers to take into account.

How do I modify or cancel my subscription?

Dropdown Arrow

We're working on building a customer-facing dashboard for this. In the meantime, just send an email to cancel@magicmind.co and we'll take care of it within 24 hours.

Does Magic Mind ship internationally?

Dropdown Arrow

We ship to Canada and Mexico for non-subscription orders on our website. We are now available in Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania via shopmayple.com!

What does Magic Mind do to support the environment?

Dropdown Arrow

We offset all supply chain emissions through our partnership with our carbon capture partner, pachama.com. We also offer carbon offsets to our customers with Neutrl, so all together, we are a carbon negative company!

Is refrigeration required?

Dropdown Arrow

No, refrigeration is not required until after opening. However, we often hear that people enjoy our shots most chilled, so feel free to store in the refrigerator if you have space!

Such a great start to the day!

My husband and I have been taking Magic Mind for about two weeks. We have both seen a noticeable difference in our daily energy levels. We feel "brighter" if that makes sense. The cobwebs and dust from our brain and energy levels seem to be clearing away. It has such healthy ingredients for your body. So much so that is is helping us battle the stress of our high stress jobs. I have been more productive and actually happier at work! It's a miracle. I say buy it today so you are feeling this great in two weeks!

Magical (ADHD) Mornings!

This powerful little nootropic beverage is a great compliment to my morning ADHD medication as it supports my brain and body to maintain that delicate balance of neurological and nutritional support while adding that little extra edge that gets me into a productive flow from morning into the afternoon. Thank you Magic Mind!

We both enjoy it

I got my husband on board to drink this. It's like taking non-alcoholic shots! My husband and I agreed it has helped with our focus and productivity. Great product. We wish it weren't so expensive. We hope to be long-term customers because of the noticeable benefits. Thank you. I also enjoy the magic mind Spotify playlist and the other blog posts. The packaging of the item is well thought out, and I appreciate the quick shipping.

Definitely Feeling Different

I have to say this works. The first day I tried it I found myself doing a task I had looked at for weeks saying "I need to do that" and walking away from it. This morning I didn't even realize what was happening until I had completed the task. I am going to give this a go for a while and see what other benefits I get from it. Give it a try!

Didn’t really notice a difference

Didn’t really notice a difference. It tastes good and I felt a placebo affect but never a real physical affect.

My daughter asked for more

I tried out Magic Mind both for myself for a work boost of focus and offered it as something my kids may benefit from with the start of school. My high school age daughter is not diligent about taking her vitamins or eat the best, but she asked me to order more, so that is a very good sign that she likes it enough and is seeing a difference. I too have tried it and notice a difference.

Good... Not Great

I have not noticed the spectacular improvement in mental clarity that was described in the advertisements. Its a solid product, but maybe the effect will be more pronounced for someone with a more sensitive system.

Postive Aspects deliver as advertised.

I did this because I wanted a few things. Cut caffeine. Maintain day long energy and focus. Make a positive contribution to my body. I definitely felt like it helped in all three areas. I started a new job and really helped me maintain energy even in 4pm training sessions.

Downsides - I haven't found what works in terms of having an easy digestive experience with it. I recommend taking it with a banana or something light. I felt very queasy like I almost had to vomit a few times. while taking it. But I really felt great 95% of the time with it.

I'm going to continue taking it and will see how I feel.

Energy and clarity without the jitters.

As someone who has anxiety I have been looking for something all natural that helps with energy and brain fog. Magic mind is it! No crashes, no jitters or spikes of anxiety due to too much caffeine, sugar and other unnatural stimulants.

Calm focus and execution

I’m a professional day trader and I I had great results swapping my morning coffee for this and matcha tea. Way less jittery and impulsive and more calm focus on my trade executions. Also much easier on my stomach than coffee.

Awful

I still haven’t received my order and it’s been two weeks. I am beyond disappointed with the company as I e joy the product. I am likely going to switch due to the price point and poor service, not the product.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for letting us know! I know that our Customer Team is hard at work to make sure you receive your order and that this is taken care of. I totally understand the disappointment, but know that we're going to do whatever we can to make this right :)

More productive and with no afternoon crash!

I have been taking Magic Mind every day with my morning coffee and I absolutely love it!! I was skeptical as to how it could possibly increase energy while simultaneously lowering stress and anxiety. But not only does it somehow accomplish all of the above, it does so without the afternoon crash! The combination of all of those things has noticeably increased my day-to-day productivity and with a sense of calm and confidence, assume my due to the decrease in anxiety. Thanks so much for creating this product! I just finished my first box and have set up to auto-ship monthly moving forward!
