Does Mind Lab Pro work? If you’ve read our Mind Lab Pro review you’ll already know that both Pablo and Dawn have had great results from using this supplement.
We believe Mind Lab Pro works. It’s a nootropic supplement that is good for boosting your brain energy, memory, focus and general cognition via natural means.
All the ingredients have clinical backing showing them to be effective in the research they have been apart of.
In this article, we’ll be expanding on this question looking at what other people think about Mind Lab Pro’s effectiveness as well as how it Mind Lab Pro compares to other natural and synthetic options on the market.
We’ll be looking at what people think of Mind Lab Pro on Reddit, and also how it compares to Qualia, Alpha Brain, Modafinil, Adderall and Performance Lab Mind.
Mind Lab Pro: Reddit’s Opinion
Like with most stacks on Reddit, there are numerous arguments both for and against Mind Lab Pro.
A good example was a user who was interested in Mind Lab Pro to help their depression and anxiety.
We’ve taken the following responses, and transcribed their opinions on Mind Lab Pro:
“…the only things that i see there that could actually repair any damage are lions mane and the B-vitamins, the rest of them definitely won’t hurt though and will probably help with the depression and anxiety. It’s a good stack man.”

There was another response in the thread too:
“MLP was my introduction to nootropics. I started taking them due to depression & anxiety, among other things, and it worked for me. On it, I had a more positive outlook on life (even while things were fucked up), more optimism, felt more calm, had more confidence and an extremely clear mind.
On nights I would binge drink and have a hangover, the following day I would pop 2 pills and they would remedy my headache much quicker than my normal routine of heavy fluids and rest. It works!”

There’s a lot more positive information on Mind Lab Pro rather than negative when it comes to opinions on Reddit. Most people over there believe that it works.
Mind Lab Pro vs Qualia
One of the main competing nootropics to Mind Lab Pro is currently Qualia Mind.
So, which one is better?
In our opinion, it has to be Mind Lab Pro. Qualia Mind has a lot more ingredients than Mind Lab Pro, it has 28 ingredients to MLP’s 11.
However, quantity does not always equal quality. There are several ingredients in Qualia Mind which some believe are underresearched and not at a higher enough dose.
It’s not as a safe as Mind Lab Pro, and it’s something that we wouldn’t recommend that you take long term.
Not only that, the quality of Mind Lab Pro is incredibly high.
Mind Lab Pro vs Alpha Brain
Alpha Brain is another nootropic on the market that rivals Mind Lab Pro.
However, there are some stark differences between the two which line up more in Mind Lab Pro’s favor.
Mind Lab Pro, unlike Alpha Brain, does not contain a proprietary blend. A proprietary blend is when a supplement manufacturer chooses to not disclose the main dosages in their supplement. Instead, they group all their ingredient’s dosages together under one larger blend.
This means you don’t know how much of each ingredient you’re getting or how effective it may be overall.
Don’t get us wrong though, both Mind Lab Pro and Alpha Brain contain the winning nootropics bacopa monnieri, phosphatidylserine, L-Theanine, L-Tyrosine and even some Vitamin Bs. However, you’ll only know how much you’re getting with Mind Lab Pro.
Not only that, Mind Lab Pro uses some branded versions of these ingredients such as Suntheanine L-Theanine, Sharp-PS Phosphatidylserine and more.
Alpha Brain may work out cheaper, but Mind Lab Pro is more effective and more trustworthy when it comes to dosages.
Mind Lab Pro vs Modafinil
Now we get into the more dangerous aspects of nootropis: modafinil.
Modafinil is a technically a drug, and a synthetic nootropic that we would not advise using.
Although it can stimulant your brain and raise your cognition, it can lead to several issues that you would not face if you stuck to a more natural option like Mind Lab Pro.
The main differences between Modafinil and Mind Lab Pro is that Modafinil is synthetically made, and not manufactured with naturally grown resources. It is something that your body would not typically encounter, and this can lead to issues.
Sure, Modafinil works faster than Mind Lab Pro however, it can make you jittery, cause headaches, anxious, back pain, insomnia and other high stimulant related issues.
Not to mention that you need a prescription for Modafinil. You should have a doctor’s note for it and be taking it under their supervision – it’s potent, dangerous and if abused, results bad things can happen fast.
Modafinil also only gives you a short-term high, whereas Mind Lab Pro provides constant natural resources and support to help support long-term brain health.
Finally, Modafinil addiction is a real thing. Many users become dependent on the ‘reward’ hormones that are released after taking the drug.
All in all, Mind Lab Pro may not be as potent, but it is far safer for long term use.
Mind Lab Pro vs Adderall
When it comes to smart-drugs, the most common option mentioned is always Adderall. It’s a very potent drug, which again carries risks like Modafinil – and as you can imagine, has many of the same pitfalls.
Again, Adderall is not made up of natural components. It’s made up of amphetamine salts (amphetamine aspartate, dextroamphetamine, amphetamine sulfate and dextroamphetamine sulfate).
These all have links to causing some degree of harm when used long term. It can cause both physical and mental health problems.
Side effects of Adderall include loss of appetite,, weight loss, dry mouth, stomach upset, dizziness, headache, fever, diarrhea, and more. You can also become addicted to it – which creates more problems of its own.
It’s also worth knowing that Adderall is a controlled substance and you will need a prescription from your doctor before you are allowed to use it.
If you want to raise your cognition in a healthy, safe way. You should stick to Mind Lab Pro. Although it doesn’t work as fast as Adderall, it does shield you from the physical and mental side effects that usually accompany it.
Performance Lab Mind vs Mind Lab Pro
We believe Performance Lab Mind is the best natural competitor to Mind Lab Pro.
Performance Lab Mind contains:
- Citicoline, 250 mg
- Phosphatidylserine, 100 mg
- N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, 300 mg
- Maritime Pine Bark Extract, 75 mg
Which are all also in Mind Lab Pro. The only difference is this is ALL of the ingredients in Performance Lab Mind.
The disadvantage to this is that you don’t get the full comprehensive cognitive boost that Mind Lab Pro would give you.
However, Performance Lab Mind is a lot easier to stack with other products. In fact, our head writer here at San Diego Health, Pablo Garduno, currently uses Performance Lab Mind in combination with numerous other products from the Performance Lab range (pictured below):
