Stress Free Mind is marketed as a potent herbal formula which aims to support natural resistance to daily mental stress and fatigue. The formula is manufactured by Maharishi Ayurveda Products International, which claims that Stress Free Mind works to nourish and support the immune system, often affected by high levels of mental stress. Direct benefits of the formula as mentioned by the manufacturer include enhancement of learning, retention and long term memory, as well as overall mental energy.

Maharishi Ayurveda Products International offers authentic, safe and effective Ayurvedic dietary supplements since 1985, when the company was set up in Iowa, United States. The manufacturer claims that all products are developed and marketed using authentic Ayurvedic ingredients, texts and recipes. Ayurveda is a form of alternative medicine which dates back to ancient India thousands of years ago. The company currently operates GMP registered facilities.

Stress Free Mind is recommended exclusively to adult patients.


1) Stress Free Mind Quick Facts

Stress Free Mind is a 100% herbal mixture. The formula features popular herbal ingredients such as Bacopa Monnieri, Gotu Kola and Ashwagandha.

Bacopa Monnieri, also known as Brahmi, is an ancient Ayurvedic medicine known to exert excellent brain and nerve tonic properties. Today, the plant is commonly used for treating epilepsy, sexual dysfunction and fertility problems, although more recent research revealed its beneficial effects on memory. Bacopa contains the active ingredients called Bacosides A and B, which are believed to possess nootropic anti-oxidant effects. Bacopa Monnieri has been shown to increase mental alertness, focus, recall and memory and to promote mental relaxation (resulting in reduced anxiety, mental fatigue, lack of focus and amnesia). Also, the use of Bacopa Monnieri in the recommended doses did not show any adverse reactions.

Jatamansi has been traditionally used by Ayurvedic medicine practitioners to enhance memory, alleviate insomnia and promote mental stability. Today the herb is used as a brain tonic, and is known to promote peace and a sense of calmness to mind as well as to increase focus. Research on humans is however still in its early stages. This is why use should be avoided during pregnancy and lactation because of the lack of sufficient clinical studies.

What’s Inside?

2) What’s Inside Stress Free Mind?

Stress Free Mind includes the following ingredients: Bacopa, Dwarf Morning Glory, Gotu Kola, Ashwagandha, Indian Tinospora, Jatamansi, Greater Galangal, Licorice and Pearl.

3) Does Stress Free Mind Work?

This formula is an herbal dietary supplement that provides several positive effects on mental energy and performance.

Gotu Kola is a popular Ayurvedic remedy being often used by Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners in creating therapeutically effective. This ingredient can prove to be quite useful for general health, but it found its way in this formula because of its effects regarding mental health. This herb has been used with success to help with conditions like anxiety, fatigue, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and psychiatric disorders; it can also contribute to improving memory and intelligence. Proposers of the herb praise it to work against flu, asthma, epilepsy, liver disease, and diarrhea. There are some concerns that the use of this ingredient can cause liver damage in some people, and mild additional side effect such as nausea, itching, and stomach upset have been reported.

Bacopa Monnieri is another one of the active ingredients used in this formula and also a herb commonly found in Ayurvedic medicinal remedies. As with Gotu Kola, this ingredient also provides a range of benefits regarding brain health. Both the Ayuvedic knowledge and modern science have concluded that this plant is effective in helping with conditions like anxiety, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, stress, and Alzheimer’s disease; it is also said to improve memory and processing skills. If used appropriately and in periods up to 12 weeks, this ingredient is considered to be safe. Nonetheless, there are mentions of some mild side effects like nausea, dry mouth, fatigue, or stomach upset.

The suggested Maharishi Ayurveda Stress Free Mind dosage is one or two tablets, twice per day after meals. Side effects for the entire formula are not mentioned. However, they may derive from the essential ingredients as such or from their interactions.

The manufacturer provides several shipping methods, among which FedEx, which is quite expensive and US Postal System that is very affordable, but not as quick. The order can be paid for by credit card or through PayPal; there are some conditions is which shipping is free. This formula was designed to come containers holding 60 herbal tablets and can provide a one-month supply. There are no free trial programs associated with this product, but a 30-day money back guarantee available.

If you want a low-cost alternative to a nootropic that also lowers stress, we think nootropics like Futurebiotics Chill Pill can help.

Bottom Line

8) Our Bottom Line

The manufacturer claims that Stress Free Mind supports mental resistance to stress, while also providing direct benefits to improve learning, retention and long-term memory. While there are no consumer testimonials nor any other empirical evidence to support the benefit claims, we do believe the formula will work for some consumers and will deliver on its advertised promises. Many of the ingredients have been tested to great extents and proven to positively impact the parameters mentioned in the benefit claims.

However, there are also ingredients which have not been sufficiently researched on humans, and this is the reason why we advise you either to further research the product or to consult a specialist before use.
