THE QUEST FOR BETTER
IMAGINE YOUR BRAIN FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS
If focus determines our reality, then imagine the doors you’ll unlock with an enhanced mental performance at your command.
THE SHORT STORY
The MAXIMUM MIND® studies indicate that MAXIMUM MIND® improves reasoning and creative problem-solving, episodic memory, verbal ability, concentration, planning skills, visual representation, and the acquisition and retention of new knowledge.

RESULTS IN STUDIED METRICS
THE MAXIMUM MIND® EFFECT
Round one of controlled trials to investigate the effect of MAXIMUM MIND® on memory, focus, learning, and creativity. Percentages increase over time, compared to baseline, 98 participants
ODE TO GREATNESS
In the initial studies, customers were self-selected and offered free cognitive testing with the purchase of Marco’s Grounds Flagship Pharmaceutical Grade Cognitive and Mind Enhancing Complex MAXIMUM MIND®. Participants were asked to perform the testing three times: before starting on Maximum Mind®, after 4 weeks of MAXIMUM MIND®, and the final test after 16 weeks of using MAXIMUM MIND®
The results for the 98 eligible subjects revealed meaningful improvement in core cognitive areas such as:
- reasoning and verbal ability (see figure Reasoning),*
- concentration (see figure Focus)*
- problem-solving skills (see graph Creativity)*
- memory recall and recall speed (see graph Memory)*
- and acquisition and retention of new knowledge (see figure Learning)*
- visual representation (see figure Spatial Mastery)*
After only 4 weeks of taking MAXIMUM MIND®, participants saw an average:
37.2% increase in scores for planning skills,*
14.4% increase in scores to measure the ability to concentrate/avoid distraction,*
16.9% increase in scores for verbal reasoning,*
31.1% increase in scores for visual representation,*
9.8% increase in scores for episodic memory, and*
8.7% increase in scores for verbal short-term memory.*
While these results are just preliminary findings on a small number of people, they are exciting initial results to see.

The study does account for the test taker learning effect, i.e., the increase in score over time imputable to the mere repetition of the test. However, since subjects are not chosen randomly, the study does not offer statistically relevant data. Further, since every test taker was aware of taking MAXIMUM MIND® and potentially aware of its effects, an eventual placebo effect cannot be inferred nor refuted.
