Mental Clarity is described as a nootropic blend that promotes memory and intelligence. Kind of odd that a supplement promotes intelligence instead of learning, but we digress.

The supplement is formulated with nothing, but certified organic herbs and extracts, which gives us the impression that Mental Clarity derives its potency from Ayuverdic roots.

Does Mental Clarity work as advertised or will its herb-filled formula be too novel for its brain-claims? Read our Mental Clarity review to find out.


1) Mental Clarity at a Glance

  • 11 Herbs
  • Proprietary blend, so no dose transparency
  • Minimal fillers
  • Feels like ancient medicine in tablet form

2) Who Makes Mental Clarity

Mental Clarity is produced by Banyan Botanicals, a company founded in 1996 that serves the organic side of the supplement industry.

They claim that all of their products are Ayurvedic and 100% natural or organic. They sell anywhere from superfoods and extracts to specialized formulations for digestion, cleansing, and even oral care.

3) Mental Clarity Ingredients

Mental Clarity contains a wide variety of herbs, but the stand out ingredients are:

  • Gotu Kola: This is an alternative caffeine source and provides a slow-release effect. This lets you feel energized throughout the day instead of one big energy spike, then a drop later.

  • Bacopa: Bacopa is touted as one of the best nootropics in the industry, capable of triggering mental processes responsible for memory retention.

  • Ashwagandha: This is the number one adaptogen in the market. Adaptogens are anti-stress herbs and ashwagandha leads the charge in terms of research popularity.

  • Passionflower: This is a mood enhancer, similar to theanine.

  • Nutmeg seed: This is one of those “health” ingredients that is said to help with inflammation and provide an antioxidant boost.

4) Does Mental Clarity Work?

Mental Clarity seems to try to market itself as a product that brings back balance to both mind and body. The site suggests someone taking the supplement can have clearer thinking, focus, and have a longer attention span.

All of these herbs are claimed to have an impact on the mental well-being of a person. However, the research surrounding most of the herbs aren’t as solid or generally accepted as conclusive.

Not to mention the ingredients look generic, especially the powerhouse ingredients like bacopa and ashwagandha. They’re great for nootropics, but they need to be standardized.

On top of that, we don’t know their doses, so it’s all a mystery if any of the ingredients are in their working doses according to research.

Final Thoughts

10) Final Thoughts on Mental Clarity

Mental Clarity uses popular herbs and extracts to formulate what they claim is a nootropic for stress, memory, and mood.

The ingredients we know and love in nootropics are certainly there, but we can’t help but feel that the formula is weak. This all stems from two points: Dosing and lack of standardization.

We don’t know any of the doses and none of the ingredients are standardized, so we can’t say for sure if the formula works as intended or if any of the ingredients will benefit you.

So for Mental Clarity, we can’t really recommend it.
