NuTraMint Smart Serum
NuTraMint Smart Serum is a mint flavored supplement made by Miller Labs LLC.
It's formulated to do the job of three products:
- An energy supplement
- A nootropic (brain function enhancer)
- A workout supplement
NuTraMint seeks to achieve this by using a synergistic blend of ingredients known for their ability to enhance energy levels, brain functioning, and athletic performance/stamina.
NuTraMint's Active Ingredients
This is what's in a bottle of NuTraMint and what each ingredient is purported to do to the human body.
Natural Caffeine - One of the most well-researched and proven ingredients that can stimulate mental performance & physical energy in addition to aiding with long-term memory.
Beta-Hydroxybutyrate or Ketones are produced by the liver when the body is fasting or going through prolonged exercise. Ketones use the fat in the body to produce fuel for energy. Ketone bodies are able to create much greater amounts of energy than glucose which is the bodies primary fuel source.
Phenylethylamine HCL - A natural chemical found in the body that is considered to be a powerful focus and concentration promoter, able to counteract signs of depression and anxiety.
Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE Bitartrate) - Aids in increasing acetylcholine levels which are the neurotransmitters involved in numerous mental processes.
Sceletium Tortuosum or Kanna (Brand Name Zembrin) - Enhances the production of dopamine, which is our primary inner pleasure chemical, and prolongs the activity of serotonin, a critically important mood compound.
Hordenine HCL - A potent central nervous stimulant that assists in weight loss. The main benefit of hordenine is its potential to assist in the release of fat from fat cells for energy.
L-Phenylalanine - An essential amino acid that is needed for normal functioning of the central nervous system.
Vinpocetine - A powerful memory enhancer derived from the Periwinkle plant and suggested to enhance blood flow to the brain while also reducing neural inflammation.
Miller Labs recently sent us some samples of NuTraMint for review.
While most of the hundreds of "energy shot" products I've tried are an attempt at being "fruit" flavored, I found it refreshing that NuTraMint is attempting something different.
The flavor of NuTraMint is simply strong peppermint and vanilla and is just lightly sweetened. The peppermint oil does a great job of covering up the taste of the caffeine and other supplement ingredients, however, in another sense, it feels a bit strange to be "drinking" such a strongly mint flavored product since this flavor is usually reserved for things like gum, mints, toothpaste, and mouthwash.
Overall, I think they've done a good job with the flavor and I do prefer this to the overly sweet, artificially fruit-flavored typical shot-type product.
As for the perceived effects of NuTraMint, I took it in place of my second cup of coffee and felt a noticeable lift in my alertness and mood within about 15 minutes. I would describe the lift as a calm lift without the jitteriness other supplements tend to cause.
About 4 hours after taking NuTraMint, I still felt pretty alert and motivated, but, I really didn't notice any increased stamina or performance during my gym workout within that time frame.
However, NuTraMint Smart Serum is a pretty solid product and is differentiated from most of the other products I've tried. It's great to see some innovation in this market segment.
This product is intended for healthy adults only and it's recommended that only 1/2 a bottle be consumed at first to understand how well your body tolerates NuTraMint's blend of ingredients.
