Everyday Dose Review: Does Nootropic Coffee Work?

Everyday Dose Review: Does Nootropic Coffee Work?

Read our Editorial Guidelines to learn more about what makes our site the premier resource for online health information.

Everyday Dose is a coffee blend that contains nootropic ingredients like mushrooms and functional ingredients like collagen. The brand describes their product as an “upgrade” to coffee that “addresses issues with regular coffee.”

But is Everyday Dose really a better option for cognitive enhancement and overall wellness than your average black coffee? Does the product contain any additive ingredients? How do real users assess the taste?

In this article we’ll answer these questions and more. We’ll review every ingredient in Everyday Dose based on medical studies to give our take on whether it’s likely to provide any health or cognitive benefits beyond what regular coffee provides. We’ll also share a real user’s review of the product, and compare Everyday Dose to another popular coffee alternative brand called MUD/WTR.

Ingredient Review

Everyday Dose ingredients

Everyday Dose contains several active ingredients other than coffee.

This product contains collagen peptides at a dose of 4 grams (g). This is somewhat of a strange ingredient inclusion for a coffee product that’s marketed for mental and emotional benefits, but this is an effective collagen dose, and the brand claims that they source their collagen from grass-fed animals which is a good thing nutritionally.

A medical review published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology found the effective daily dosing range of collagen to be 2.5 g to 10 g, and that this dosage reduced wrinkles and improved skin quality.

L-theanine is an amino acid that reduces stress and provides a useful counterpoint to the caffeine in coffee. As we documented in our review of Nootropics Depot, the combination of l-theanine and caffeine is proven in clinical studies to improve attention, and the 150 milligrams (mg) in Everyday Dose is an effective dose.

The remaining active ingredients are coffee and two mushrooms.

Chaga is a mushroom that’s often included in nootropic (cognitive-enhancing) supplements, but we consider it a likely ineffective choice. A 2019 medical review of chaga found that the mushroom may have a variety of health and mental benefits, but the doses used in all of the data analyzed were significantly higher than the 617 milligram (mg) dose in Everyday Dose.

We have the same concerns about lion’s mane extract. While there is promising early research on this mushroom, we are unable to identify any medical studies suggesting it has benefits to humans at the dose in Everyday Dose.

The good thing about Everyday Dose is that it has no harmful additive ingredients like artificial flavors or added sugar. There are no ingredients at all in this formulation we consider unhealthy.

We do not believe that Everyday Dose is superior to black coffee in regard to nootropic benefits, because it’s a low-caffeine coffee blend and caffeine is the predominant nootropic compound in coffee. That being said, this product does contain other active ingredients that may be effective for improving mood or cognition. 

We believe Everyday Dose may be a useful alternative for consumers sensitive to caffeine. It also may be a useful skincare supplement given that it contains an effective collagen dose (though mixing unflavored collagen into black coffee would likely be more cost-effective).

Everyday Dose Real User Review

One of the Everyday Dose reviews on YouTube that appears unsponsored is published by a channel called “The Random Outdoor.” The creator unboxes the product and shares his thoughts on its taste and effects:

Intrusive and Unethical Marketing Practice

Everyday Dose marketing email

As we were browsing the Everyday Dose website while writing the review, the brand sent a marketing email to one of our team members. We never input our email on their website or consented to marketing messages.

We find this to be a highly disruptive, frustrating and unethical marketing practice, and we urge Everyday Dose to only email individuals that sign up for emails. We are unsure how the company accessed our team member’s personal email, but this is a red flag about the brand overall.

We recommend that consumers avoid the Everyday Dose website until they update their marketing practices to respect the privacy of consumers.

Everyday Dose Vs. MUD/WTR

Consumers are often curious about whether Everyday Dose or MUD/WTR is a better option, since both are popular coffee alternative brands. We reviewed MUD WTR ingredients in a separate Illuminate Health article, and we consider Everyday Dose to have a superior formulation.

Everyday Dose contains several ingredients we consider effectively dosed: collagen peptides and l-theanine. We were unable to identify any effectively-dosed ingredients for nootropic function or health in our MUD/WTR review.

We also appreciate that Everyday Dose publishes the specific part of the mushroom (“lion’s mane fruiting body extract”) on their ingredient list while MUD/WTR just publishes the mushroom name which makes it more difficult to make an informed purchase decision.

Everyday Dose Customer Reviews

Everyday Dose is sold on Amazon which is a more objective source of customer reviews than a brand’s website in our opinion. The product has only been reviewed 11 times and has an average review rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars.

The top positive review from a verified purchaser comes from a user named “KayCee” who claims that the supplement is better than coffee:

“No jitters or anxiety that I get with coffee, less expensive dive on manufacturers site though with great accessories.”

The top negative review from a verified purchaser is written by a user named “Antonio” who gives Everyday Dose 3 out of 5 stars and claims it caused side effects:

“The flavor isn't bad, but not great. It did help wake me up and give me energy. It gave me heartburn though so I ended up throwing it out. I gave it a solid week of effort before giving up.”

Conclusion

Everyday Dose makes a good coffee alternative for consumers who are sensitive to caffeine. It contains the amount of caffeine in about one-third of a cup of coffee, and contains several other effective ingredients that may provide nootropic and health benefits, like l-theanine and collagen peptides.

The mushroom ingredients may provide benefits as well, but we cannot locate any medical studies suggesting that mushroom extracts at the dose in this product have benefits.

We consider Everyday Dose to be better-formulated than MUD/WTR, another popular coffee alternative.

Everyday Dose sends marketing emails to consumers who simply visit their site and do not opt into marketing emails. We very strongly disagree with this practice, and urge the brand to stop engaging in this practice. It’s disrespectful to the privacy and time of consumers. We would consider recommending the brand overall if not for this practice.
