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. 7 years 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 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.


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.


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):


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.


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

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.


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

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

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 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!

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, 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!

Initial review

I love the product but it seems to have given me gas. My doctor said cramps should dissipate/disappear w/i a week as my system adjusts.

A lovely morning perk

I was fully prepared for these to taste like a mouthful of turf grass, which I was prepared to accept if they helped my brain get in the game in the morning. To my delight, they're pretty dang tasty, especially mixed with a little oat milk. The effects are subtle but noticeable and I really like the boost in energy and focus.

Great, can feel the difference!

It works! And it’s magic. I take it every morning

Awesome sauce

I was skeptical about another supplement but have to say I'm sold and subscribed to this wonderful product. It tastes very good, clears my head but no weird effects like some other things I've tried. I notice more clarity, calmer attitude and just generalized well being. It took a few days to really notice something was a good way. Try this supplement that has ingredients you need for your health and you will be 100% satisfied.

Tis Magic but ...

I've been using Magic Mind now for 2 weeks - about half way thru my first subscription. First day was a WOW. My brain fog, constant anxiety, low grade but ever present headache were gone. Poof! 2nd day, nothing seemed special but kept taking it thru that weekend. I gave some away to friends to try so skipped a couple of days. Came back to it and again, wow. I think the difference is I feel like myself again - not superhuman, just myself. I take it in the morning before I start work and after my coffee. I mix it in with my selzer water over ice. For those who are amazed at the thickness of the matcha, google it. It's thick and slimy and that's why there are special whisks to keep the liquid suspended. I like the taste the way I drink it. Can't imagine downing it without mixing it with something! Only one thing I would change and that's the **huge** amount of plastic waste this generates. I am hopeful they understand that this packaging, tho lovely, is crazy in terms of the current resource/energy/climate crisis. A bag or glass jar with a scoop would be better. How about it Magic Mind? Can you give us a timeline for when this packaging will change? If it doesn't, I probably won't subscribe long term.


Due to some gut health issues, I am very picky about what I offer my body in the way of support and nutrition. I started using my Magic Mind and thought it would take a couple of weeks to see any change. By the second day, I was noticing a new sense of energy and focus.

As a magazine owner and editor, I am approached by a lot of product people. Nothing like Magic Mind. I will be a long-time user!

Initial review

Was not a high or wired feeling, but definitely can tell the difference. Very calm and stabilizing effect, also have noticed more focus and clarity. No come-down, feels incredibly natural.

I asked for a refund

Nobody never got back to me! They sent me another shipment and I want my money back, please! This did not work for me at all.

Aline - your subscription has been canceled! If you ever have any other questions, please reach out to us at - we always respond to emails sent there :)

Magic Mind not ok

I tried it 5 days in a row. Firstly, I took it with food or drink and always it upset my tummy. The first 2 days I was so tired in the afternoon that I took a nap. (I never need to do that!) The other afternoon days I was so jittery and I think it was partly from hunger? It made me need more food I guess?
I've taken a break from it for a week. I will use it again for the next 5 days and see if I need to eat at different times or what. It just upset my stomach so much that I'm hoping different types of food will help.

Hi Patricia! We've definitely heard some similar feedback in the past - especially from folks with sensitive stomachs - so we truly do appreciate you leaving this review and detailing your experience. For our customers who discover that this is an issue for them, we generally recommend a light meal 30 minutes before drinking Magic Mind. And if you're feeling sleepy, we'd recommend adding Magic Mind to your normal caffeine routine for the first 5 days before decreasing from there. Thanks again for taking the time to review Magic Mind!

Calm, but disengaged

Took it for a week. Noticed the effects on the first day. Sounds like this product can affect different people in different ways. My experience below.

- Calmed me down
- Less heart rate pounding

- Felt disengaged and mellow, not focused
- Removed sense of positive energy and replaced with dullness.

Overall, it did help calm me, but at the expense of feeling overall suppressed and lacking enthusiasm. For me, I would need a product that both is calming but can keep me engaged and motivated. Unfortunately this didn’t quite do it. Cool idea though.

Thanks for your feedback, Daniel.

Did you go cold turkey off your regular coffee/tea when you started taking Magic Mind? If so, we'd recommend taking Magic Mind alongside your regular morning caffeine for the first week and then weaning off from there if that's your goal. Otherwise we just don't pack enough caffeine to give your body what it's used to right away.

Seems to work will give it another round

The taste is not bad but takes a bit to get use to it. I do seem more focused on the days I take it.

Magic Mind
Really wanted to see amazing results

I can't say that I saw a difference using magic mind. Maybe it's me, I didn't see much from Adderall either.

Magic Mind
Enjoying it

My husband and I are both taking one every morning, He takes his with his coffee, and I take mine with my water and morning vitamins. We have both noticed a difference. A bit more energy and a bit less stress. Thank you.

Game Changer

What Magic Mind gives me is sustained energy and an ability to handle my busy and very active work day with more ease than without Magic Mind. I find I am able to move through with less of that "stressed" feeling.
