Dr. Tobias Mind Rise is another product that attempts make a meaningful presence in the nootropic market. It’s touted as a Focus Clarity Memory Supplement with Bacopa Monnieri & Ginkgo Biloba. That’s a mouthful, and in this case also needs to prove that it’s a strong contender in the brain enhancement game.
This focus formula is said to be specifically formulated to help improve cognition function, including memory, creativity, as well as motivation. It’s also promoted to be made from non-GMO ingredients in an FDA registered and inspected GMP-certified facility. Let’s dive into what Mind Rise is all about.
This nootropic supplement banners the presence of common brain-enhancing ingredients, namely Bacopa monnieri and ginkgo biloba. There’s no doubt that these are two of the biggest superstars of nootropic stacks, but also to be considered are the amounts that go into the formula, their potency and quality, along with their synergy with other nootropic ingredients. In this regard, Mind Rise seems to put together quite a formidable range of ingredients for its supplement.

Mind Rise contains the following ingredients:
- Ginkgo biloba leaf (24% extract) or 50 mg per serving

Dr. Tobias Mind Rise is promoted as supportive of focus, memory and clarity through its “powerful blend of ingredients.” Its specific objective is to enhance cognition function including memory, creativity, and motivation. According to the label, it’s formulated by an anti-aging physician, and the reference to anti-aging is definitely nothing new in this field. This harps on the possibility of delaying the onset of cognitive decline or even lessening the severity of accompanying symptoms of mental decline.
The individual ingredients or their interactions can produce a number of unwanted side effects, particularly in users who are taking them for the first time and are not very aware of this possibility.
Huperzine A, for instance, is a highly potent nootropic substance. It inhibits the production of acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine in the brain. Lowering this production results in more acetylcholine presence in the brain, which in turn means more potential brain power.
Huperzine A, though, can lead to side effects when taken in significant amounts. These effects include fuzzy thinking, lack of concentration, headaches, fatigue, and demotivation, to name a few. It’s worth knowing that its amount in Mind Rise is quite small, but this is important to note just the same. This is just to emphasize the importance of knowing all the ingredients in a product, their amounts per serving, and any risks or potential effects that may set in after intake.
Readers’ Score and Price:
Mind Rise is worth around $21 for a 60-day supply (60 capsules per bottle). There aren’t a lot of expert reviews on it, but we can focus on Amazon and its 400+ reviews on the platform. Some 64% of users rated it high while the rest are a mix of 4 stars to a dismal 1 star.
It’s said to cause “a general uplift” to one’s mood and psychological function, as well as what’s behind “a huge change in mood and focus,” where the user no longer stops halfway through a project to distractedly work on something else. On the flip side, it’s said to cause severe brain fog and doesn’t really measure up to other nootropics out there.
Dr. Tobias Mind Rise is a nootropic solution that aims to improve cognitive function including areas such as memory, creativity, and motivation. All these are likely to decline with age, and the product’s positioning as the handiwork of an anti-aging physician seems to scream authority and credibility. But not so fast…
We are taken aback by the severe lack of authority reviews on this product. We put a premium on user reviews, but if Mind Rise is unable to catch the attention of review sites like ours, then it might be deficient not just in marketing but also in merit. It has a long way to go in proving itself worthy of being rated well, especially as it has the same price as leading nootropic contenders (not priced lower to attract a bigger share of the market). Even users seem to have inconsistent experiences and results with it. Until that time comes, we’re treating Mind Rise as just another bench warmer – or shelf filler, if you’d like to call it that.
