“Mental health—depression, anxiety, ADHD, lack of focus/motivation—can be profoundly helped through plant-based cognitive-enhancing formulas.”


About Me

Mental health has a fascinating (and I think unacknowledged) correspondence with two modern matters:

  1. An increase in drugs to tweak the mind: 14 million Americans currently use amphetamines to deal with brain fog, forgetfulness, and concentration. Another 37 million—around 18% of the adult population—use antidepressants.
  2. An increase over-reactivity, black-and-white thinking, generalization biases, loss of language accuracy, argumentative, divisive aggressiveness, even cult-like behavior.

We are losing neuroplasticity, the ability to truly think clearly and logically, and we are using the wrong tools.

There's a much better way, and the answer lies—in part—with concentrated cognitive-enhancing plants. The studies and research papers are available— unbiased plant chemists reporting their findings in—that are showing real brain repair. 

I've been designing and manufacturing plant-based nootropic formulas since 2008. With the advent of new plant extraction technologies, we are now able to reach new levels of potency that were unheard of even a few years ago. This has changed the game on how we can help humans think clearer and make better choices in their work and life. The socio-cultural impact alone is perfect timing for these unprecedented times.

I am the owner and formulator of Synaptic Scientific. I’ve had a long interest in natural foods as medicine going back to the mid-70s, and a particular love of cognitive herbal formulas. I graduated from a natural foods school in the ’80s, and wrote three books on the diet-disease/diet-health connection that sold 80,000 hard copies in print. 

In 2007, I started what was the world’s first non-caffeinated think drink company, and the Brain Toniq beverage was the first nootropic ever to be sold in all Whole Foods stores, along with 1,400 independent stores across North America, Europe and Russia, selling over 2 Million bottles a year.
