AminoMind helps you to look and feel younger. Get all the benefits of collagen powder in a fraction of the dose.*
Nootropic supplements enhance brain function. Whether you're feeling "mentally older" or looking to keep an edge in your personal or professional life, they're popular for anyone who:
BDNF stands for Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor. It's a "neuroprotein" (also called a "neurotrophic factor"), an essential protein in your brain responsible for memory and learning.
One way you can think of BDNF is as a gardener working hard in your brain (the garden). Here's all of the ways BDNF works in your brain:
While there are many brain health supplements on the market, they're limited in how they go about supporting cognitive function. This is because they focus on only one or two brain functions without addressing the health of your brain's structure. AminoMind is only nootropic supplement that contains ingredients to build the physical structure of your brain, support blood flow to your brain and boost BDNF.* Here's what's inside:
A pilot clinical study shows that these specific high-potency collagen dipeptides called "Pro-Hyp (proline-hydroxyproline)" and "Hyp-Gly (hydroxyproline-glycine)" support BDNF and nerve fiber quality. Unlike normal collagen powders, these dipeptides called CollaBrain literally build your brain.*
Plus CollaBrain is powerful! Taking 1 Tablespoon of AminoMind is like taking 64 Tablespoons of the most popular collagen powder.
Our Coffeeberry extract is packed with polyphenols (a fancy word for a type of antioxidant). Antioxidants stop things from oxidizing (think rust on a car). The antioxidants in Coffeeberry help keep your brain from getting rusty too! Plus, they're clinically shown to improve BDNF levels by 134%. They also improve memory, immediate focus, overall cognition and may even protect your brain cells.*
This amino acid is naturally found in vegetables like watermelon, cucumbers, pumpkins and squash. L-Citrulline supports nitric oxide (NO) production and healthy blood flow to the brain. Healthy blood flow across the blood-brain barrier ensures optimal oxygen and nutrient delivery to feed your brain cells.*
Another amino acid, L-Trypophan is found in many forms of protein like tofu, legumes, and most famously, turkey. This amino acid is a building block for the neurotransmitter serotonin and can boost dopamine levels. Healthy serotonin and dopamine levels promote BDNF production and a calm, relaxed mood.*
When you elevate your BDNF levels and build your brain, here's what you can expect.*
AminoMind helps you to look and feel younger. Get all the benefits of collagen powder in a fraction of the dose.*
AminoMind helps you remember people's names, birthdays and other important information.*
AminoMind helps you focus and learn new things whether it's the latest iPhone, or a new cooking technique.*
AminoMind helps you cut through "brain fog" and focus when you need it most.*
Your heart and brain will love AminoMind. More oxygen and targeted nutrition for your brain means better cognitive support.*
AminoMind supports healthy neurotransmitter levels for Serotonin, Dopamine and more.*
AminoMind is powered by CollaBrain collagen dipeptides, Coffeeberry extract, L-citrulline and L-tryptophan.*
CollaBrain collagen dipeptides are the cutting edge of collagen science. There are 40 different peptides that can be isolated in collagen protein. Cutting edge research shows that proline-hydroxyproline "Pro-Hyp" and hydroxyproline-glycine "Hyp-Gly" stimulate the highest level of biological activity in the body. In CollaBrain we have isolated and concentrated these two peptides so that it contains 30-50x more than standard collagen.*
An average brains weigh about 3 pounds, and the protein that makes up your brain’s tissues is full of collagen. Collagen, literally holds your brain together. As we get older, we lose our collagen at 1% per year. That also means we are losing collagen in our brain, which results in brain volume shrinkage. By taking a high-quality form of collagen, you can make up for the loss and keep your brain healthy. Collagen is also your brain’s source of essential amino acids and one of them, Glycine, is essential for your brain to make new neurons. In so many ways, collagen is the perfect bio-identical resource for your brain’s growth, protection, and repair.*
New CollaBrain collagen dipeptides produce all the same benefits you’ve come to expect from our AminoSculpt formulas, like improved skin, less wrinkles, lustrous hair, strong nails, and healthy fascia throughout your body…but in a much smaller yet equally powerful dose. One serving of AminoMind gives you collagen equivalent to 75 to 125 grams of powdered collagen. It’s important to read the labels on products you may be considering – most collagen products list milligrams (mg) or micrograms (mcg) rather than grams (gm) of collagen peptides.
CollaBrain is made from porcine (pork) skin. For this reason AminoMind is not kosher or halal at this time. It also may not be suitable for vegans, or vegetarians depending on the individual. Collagen can be found in every animal with common sources being bovine (beef), fish, and chicken. Porcine was one of the original sources of collagen peptides because it is so similar in composition to human collagen.
Coffeeberry extract is derived from the fruit of the coffee plant, known as coffee cherries. Unlike the well-known coffee beans (which are the seeds inside these cherries), coffeeberry extract is made from the whole fruit, including the skin and pulp that surround the bean.
The extract is valued for its high antioxidant content, particularly chlorogenic acid, which is also found in green coffee beans. These antioxidants can help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, potentially reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.
The coffeeberry extract in AminoMind is supported by 4 clinical studies that show increases in BDNF and nerve-fiber quality, as well as improvements in memory and focus.*
Yes, but a very, very small amount - the equivalent to the caffeine in one single drop of coffee. While coffee beans have a high caffeine content, the berry around it doesn’t. A standardized extract of this fruit is what we use in AminoMind. In fact, the brain health nutrients in our Coffeeberry extract contain chlorogenic acids and polyphenols at levels 40% higher than coffee beans with only about 1-2% caffeine.
L-Citrulline is an amino acid that helps your body make nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is important because it makes blood vessels wider, which improves blood flow. Better blood flow to the brain means more oxygen and nutrients for the brain, which can help with things like thinking clearer and staying alert. So, L-Citrulline is good for keeping your heart and brain healthy by helping with blood circulation.*
L-Tryptophan is an essential amino acid found in turkey, cheese, nuts and more. We include it in AminoMind for its role in serotonin production and sleep regulation; both of which are important factors in how much BDNF you have.*
The other ingredients in AminoMind are: filtered water, malic acid, natural flavors, pectin, stevia extract, potassium sorbate, and e-polylysine.
Pectin is a natural fiber found in fruits like apples and citrus. Your grandmother used it to make jellies and jam at home. We use it in AminoMind to help keep all of the nutrients suspended in the liquid (otherwise they'd all clump up on the bottom of the bottle).*
Malic acid is an organic compound contributing to fruit's sour taste, it's naturally found in apples, cherries and other fruits. We use it in AminoMind as part of the flavoring to make it delicious.*
Natural flavors are fruit, vegetable, or botanical extracts, as well as essential oils from natural sources. We use them to make AminoMind delicious and to cover up some natural, but strong and earthy flavors from the botanical ingredients in the formula.*
Stevia extract is a natural, zero-calorie sweetener derived from the stevia plant native to the verdant jungles of South America. We use stevia extract in AminoMind to improve the taste without adding sugar or artificial sweeteners. We use a high quality type of stevia in a precise amount that doesn't leave a "stevia aftertaste."*
Potassium sorbate is a safe and effective preservative. It's man-made. We use it in AminoMind to prevent yeast and mold growth to keep you safe.*
E-polylysine is a natural preservative produced by fermentation (like sauerkraut, pickles, etc...). We use it in AminoMind as a safe, effective way to prevent the growth of microbes and mold.*
Please carefully read the ingredient list and Supplement Fact panel on AminoMind. Here's what we can tell you though. AminoMind is gluten-free, soy-free, sugar-free, carb-free, nut-free, egg-free, milk-free, dairy-free and non-GMO. AminoMind contains NO artificial flavors, or colors. AminoMind does contain collagen dipeptides from an animal source (porcine), so vegans and vegetarians should take that under advisement.
Yes, the human brain starts to shrink our 30s or 40s which dovetails with our bodies’ steady decline in collagen production (about 1% each year after 20.) Your brain is 60% fat and the remaining 40% is water, protein (collagen), carbohydrates, and salt. The rate of brain shrinkage accelerates after the age of 60. You’ll notice the effects most in how you process memories, emotions, impulse control, problem-solving, social interactions, and motor functions. The most effective way to combat brain shrinkage is AminoMind's CollaBrain, a new form of concentrated collagen peptides that feed your brain. While some shrinkage is normal, excessive or accelerated shrinkage can be a red flag for Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia and you should consult a health professional.
The time to pay attention is NOW! Our brains grow like crazy until we are in our 20s. Then we begin losing brain volume starting at the age of 30 at a rate of about 5% of our brain volume each decade. Layer in lifestyle and habits and the fact that your body is losing collagen at 1% per year after 20 which feeds your brain and you can see why the optimal time is right now. Everything about your lifestyle and diet affects your brain’s health. Don’t waste time and set yourself up for frustrating years of loss of memory, declining cognitive performance, and not being able to live independently. It’s time to be proactive.*
BDNF is short for “Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor” (yup – that’s a mouthful). Basically, BDNF is a "neuroprotein" your brain needs to create connections. BDNF is like growth hormone for your brain. Your brain can continuously build new connections and keep old ones healthy if you have enough BDNF. But, as we get older, our bodies become less efficient at producing BDNF which results in fuzzy memories, having a harder time learning and concentrating, and keeping mental fatigue at bay. Researchers have recently found that providing the body with the necessary resources to produce more BDNF could potentially reverse age-related brain conditions such as Alzheimer's, depression, and dementia.*
While we are focused on BDNF’s benefits for your brain, it is also found in other areas of your body. BDNF is found in your lungs, heart, spleen, GI tract, liver, and heart. Your bladder, lungs, and colon actually have higher levels of BDNF than your brain! The neurons throughout your body use BDNF and as your body loses its ability to make enough, all your organs and tissues may suffer.*
Nootropics are nutrients that improve your brain’s function. They help improve memory, recall, concentration, and focus, along with helping to reduce brain fog. They are also called “cognitive enhancers” or “smart pills” sometimes.*
Yes! Interestingly, BDNF also plays a role in supporting weight loss, as well as supporting the maintenance of healthy blood sugar and glucose metabolism in the body.
Yes, our unique CollaBrain collagen dipeptides have been clinically shown to improve skin by supporting a more youthful, even skin tone, with increased hydration and smoothness. They also reduce visible signs of skin aging, improve skin elasticity and decrease wrinkles and roughness. They also have been shown to support healthy joint function and mobility.
AminoMind is the first of its kind nootropic liquid collagen that rebuilds your brain by delivering multiple nutrients to make brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). We're able to accomplish this with a powerful combination of a new, highly potent form of collagen called CollaBrain and Coffeeberry extract. We also include L-Citrulline for increased blood flow and optimal oxygen delivery in your brain as well as L-Tryptophan to build the neurotransmitters your brain needs.*
AminoMind is the first nootropic collagen and BDNF supplement that helps support and build the structure of your brain (brain cells), its connectivity (hook ups to communicate), and optimizes your brain’s performance (memory, learning, sharpness). It supports new brain growth and rebuilds your brain starting in just 30 minutes from the first serving.
Other brain supplements are formulated to address only specific functions of the brain. AminoMind supports the whole brain structure and stops age-related shrinkage and decline. Without addressing the health of the fundamental structure of the brain, like AminoMind does, nutrients targeted at a brain that is atrophying and shrinking will not make your brain more healthy.*
Just 20 years ago, scientists thought that you were born with a set number of brain cells. We’ve since learned that the brain has the ability to create new brain neurons (neurogenesis) and new networks (especially after an injury) so we can continue learning and storing new memories (neuroplasticity.) However, our ability to do these declines with age which is compounded by our loss of collagen and brain shrinkage starting at about 30 years old. The nutrients in AminoMind feed your brain the building resources it needs to continue to grow and adapt at any age!*
At Health Direct, we've found over 25 years (and over 100 million doses used in hospitals and clinics) of our own collagen research and use (we introduced it to the public back then), we have found that the optimal delivery system for and use of collagen to maximize its benefits are in small dose liquid servings.
Beyond ease and convenience of use, the absorption and the bioavailability of the collagens and associated nutrients are immediate and more complete. This provides quicker, more noticeable, and greater results that are not achieved with powders or pills.*
Many people start seeing benefits within the first 7 days of using AminoMind. Some people report that they need less coffee, tea, and energy drinks (caffeine) in the morning within the first few days. One serving of AminoMind's Coffeeberry extract is clinically proven to increase the amount of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) in the bloodstream by 134% in just one hour! Using fMRI (an MRI that measures brain activity), researchers were able to show that it also increases the connectivity in our brains; in fact, study participants showed demonstrable improvements in their brain performance by 27% within seven days and by 32% at 28 days. Our new CollaBrain collagen delivers 50 to 125 times more collagen peptides when you take it than a serving of powdered collagen.*
You may notice some immediate effects from AminoMind, like better concentration, mental energy and endurance, and a feeling of being more “plugged in” or connected with what is happening. Many people report needing less caffeine in the morning as well. But the biggest benefits of AminoMind are cumulative; they are more noticeable and more significant the longer you take it (it takes time to rebuild your brain and improve the age-related decline that has happened to it over the years). Results that you’ll notice over time are focus/concentration, improved sleep, feelings of well-being, and better recall. You may also notice your mind-to-muscle communication improves too. But, the most noticeable benefit people tell us about is that they feel their brain fog disappears more and more the longer they use AminoMind.
AminoMind is a hightly concentrated formula with a serving size of 1 Tablespoon (15 mL) per day. Each 14 Fl Oz bottle is a 28 day supply.
AminoMind has a highly concentrated formula that comes in two natural fun flavors: Blackberry and Passionfruit-Guava. It's made to mix, and tastes best when combined with 4oz of ice-cold water. AminoMind can be taken straight, but will have a strong, medicinal flavor from the botanicals.
YES - for more noticeable and quicker results, you can take a “loading dose” of AminoMind for 2-4 weeks. This would be 1 serving (1tablespoon) taken twice per day. Take the first serving when you wake up and a second dose mid-morning or afternoon (just don’t take it at night). After 2-4 weeks, reduce your dose to the regular 1 serving per day.
