Undertaking the rigors of the competitive educational landscape while both training at an Olympic level, Kent Yoshimura and Ryan Chen recognized the demand for energy products but were surprised to find what people were ingesting. From
illegal prescriptions of Adderall™ to the less than desirable ingredients contained in the sector’s most popular energy drinks, a void in the market was clear and present. We set out to fill it.
In search of a product that increased focus and productivity without the unhealthy ingredients and associated side-effects, we began to explore the world of nootropics. However, the idea of taking dozens of pills a day didn't sit well
with us. We appreciated the effects but wanted something more accessible.
So with our backgrounds in Neuroscience, Chemistry, and Economics, we embarked on our journey. working alongside a chemist to formulate a product that was healthy, effective, and convenient. Undergoing over a year of research and development,
we consulted with brain surgeons, personal formulators, professional athletes, and the typical coffee drinker, we created NeuroGum™ in October 2015 - world’s first patent-pending nootropic energy gum.
