Mind Boost Complete is a supplement package that consists of two products.
- Mind Boost Day
- Mind Boost Night
Both products are produced in the USA by Simple Smart Science and can be purchased individually if required.
When used together, the two products are designed to provide 24-hour nootropic support and deliver “high performance brain enhancement”.
Why Mind Boost Day & Night?
The brain is working 24-hours a day. Even during sleep periods the brain is busy processing thoughts and regulating important processes such as breathing. Simple Smart Science claim the blend of natural ingredients used in their two products can improve brain function during periods or rest and mental activity alike.
The main promised benefits are:
- Improved energy and focus (daytime)
- Improved levels of rest and rejuvenation (nighttime)
Ingredients in Mind Boost Day
Mind Boost Day contains unspecified amounts of four active ingredients:
Citicoline: An amino acid that is naturally-occurring in watermelons and some other foods, but can also be manufactured within the body. It is a vasodilator that can enlarge blood vessels by an amount that is sufficient to ensure the brain receives an increased amount of nutrients and oxygen.
Some studies suggest citicoline can improve cognitive function, provide improved focus, and improve the memory. It is a precursor to acetylcholine (the brain’s memory-forming chemical compound) and is often used as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease.
Rhodiola Rosea Root: A natural adaptogen that has a good reputation for boosting mental performance. Rhodiola Rosea Root also improves stamina and offers protection against the damaging effects of stress.
For the purposes of one study, hospital doctors working the night shift were given Rhodiola Rosea Root and noticed a 20% improvement in their performance.
Vitamin B12: An important water-soluble vitamin that can improve the metabolism and provide extra energy. Vitamin B12 is necessary for maintaining a healthy central nervous system and also appears to enhance the memory, boost concentration, and increase learning and reasoning abilities.
Folic Acid: A B vitamin that is sometimes used as a treatment for memory loss and Alzheimer's disease. Some studies show folic acid may be important for healthy cognitive function and may protect against age-related mental decline.
However, most breakfast cereals are fortified with folic acid, and it also occurs naturally in many foods, so the benefits of supplementation are disputable.
Ingredients in Mind Boost Night
Again the inclusion rates are unspecified, but the Mind Boost Night formulation provides a further dose of folic acid.
The other three active ingredients are:
Picamilon: A nootropic drug of Russian origin, Picamilon provides a combination of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and nicotinic acid (niacin) in the same molecule. It is believed to have a calming effect on the mind, is often used to boost blood flow to the brain, has value as a mood enhancer, and may be useful for preventing anxiety.
Green Tea Extract: The polyphenols and L-Theanine provided by green tea boost brain power in many ways and protect the brain cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Although it is often used to boost mental energy levels, green tea can also enhance memory function and improve the mood.
Olive Leaf Extract: A source of valuable antioxidants that can provide further protection against free radicals. Some animal-based studies suggest olive leaf extract may also help prevent the onset of neurodegenerative diseases
A few customer comments read:
“I bought the complete package so I could try it for a month and see if the two products worked. They do. I sleep much sounder these days and wake up feeling so refreshed I am ready to take on the world. I don’t feel stressed anymore and find it much easier to concentrate on my work.”
“I've been taking both lots of pills for three weeks now and am still waiting for the *mind boost* to kick-in. Don’t believe the hype, these pills are rubbish.”
“I don't wake up so often during the night these days, so the night time pills may be doing something for me, but the daytime pills don't seem to make much difference at all. Maybe they work better for some people than others.”
Side Effects & Health Issues
The manufacturers state side effects are not likely, but pregnant or nursing mothers should always play it safe and refrain from taking any supplements that have not been approved by their doctor.
The same advice holds true for people who have existing health problems or are taking medications.

Purchasing Options & Considerations
The Simple Smart Science Mind Boost Day & Night formulations appear to be only available from the manufacturer's website. A single bottle of night-time formula normally retails at $49.
With a price tag of $69, the daytime formulation costs considerably more. Bulk buy deals are available for each product individually and it is also possible to purchase both formulations as a combo. At the time of this review buying a bottle of each involved a total spend of $97.
