Support For Peak Creativity & Longevity

Highest Potency At a Hard-To-Beat Price.  

I started creating and marketing plant-based tonics back in 2006, selling in every Whole Food store and 1400 other locations around the world. We now have what we believe to be the best plant-based formulas for brain health and longevity in the world today.

If there was a mission behind our company, Synaptic Scientific, it would be to demonstrate to people, through their own personal experience, the extraordinary healing power of plant-based formulas. 

To do that, we create formulas that utilize the latest plant extraction technology, organically certified farms, and FDA-certified labs. 

We currently have two powerful products: 

  1. Cognition™, a highly concentrated liquid brain and mood-boosting mix of 8 Ayurvedic plants. 
  2. L2™, a mix of two of the top rated medicinal mushrooms, Lingzhi spore powder and Cordyceps militaris.

We’ve priced both to be extremely competitive and affordable. 

We are so certain of the power of these plants and formulas to improve your health, that if you are not happy with your results, we will send you a full refund. 

Cognition™ –  For Mood, Focus, & Brain Health

Cognition™ was designed for those whose career and creativity depend on their ability to focus, concentrate, stay centered and think clearer. Known as a nootropic, Cognition™ is a highly concentrated liquid brain-boosting supplement, a mix of Ayurvedic plant extracts that each have been shown to support beneficial effects on brain health, emotions, and overall mental wellness.

Cognition™ is the right tool for those who need sections of time when the mind is firing on all cylinders; when there is a boost in creativity, mood uplift, clarity, being centered, clear decision making, amplified determination, and the overall ability to get things done. This includes:

  • knowledge workers
  • coders
  • writers/authors/teachers
  • meditators
  • students (cramming, or studying difficult topics)
  • procrastinators, anyone easily distracted
  • anyone looking for healthier alternatives

I started creating and marketing plant-based brain tonics back in 2006. Now with the new Cognition™ formula, we have the best plant-based nootropic in the world today.

No sugar. No caffeine. No stimulants. No artificial ingredients or preservatives. Just plants and compounds that give the brain what it needs to work well.

Cognition™ surprised me from the first day on; it cleared a fog that I didn’t know I had. Truly, my mind has cleared. It’s as if I ingested a higher frequency through these plants somehow, and my brain adapted to it, like a tuning fork."

Strength & Efficacy

With Cognition™, the driving force was to create the the best brain-enhancing formula—commonly called a nootropic—in the world, both in strength and efficacy. This required three elements:

1. Stop Avoiding Bitter

Every cognitive-enhancing organic compound in the world is bitter—100% of them. Trying to avoid this alkaloidal fact is what leads developers to creating weak products by drying and encapsulation, or dramatically lowering the ingredient totals in order to taste better.

But an effective nootropic is not candy. It’s not a gummy bear, it’s not even a fun beverage. It’s an intense tonic designed to work. If the goal is better thinking and focus, and being the absolute best in the world, then you can not avoid bitter. So we didn’t—we embraced it.

Fortunately the solution is easy. While some customers place Cognition™ directly into the mouth and enjoy the bitter orange taste, it’s also easy to diffuse each serving in a bit of juice, water, tea, oat milk, or other dilution mediums. Hot or cold does not impact its effect.

2. Put in Enough

We started with efficacious amounts of each ingredient—the amount that actually produces the result—and then worked backwards. This made the formula relatively expensive, and it also made each bottle quite… stuffed. There is so much active ingredient in each 4-ounce bottle that our chemists had a hard time getting it all in.

3. Supercritical Fluid Extraction

This third part to Cognition™’s strength is an innovative technology called Supercritical Fluid Extraction, or SCFE. SCFE uses extremely cold temperatures to separate the terpenes, alkaloids, bitters and other active ingredients from Ayurvedic plants to end up with strengths far beyond the methods available to us even back in 2013.  Instead of 1-to-1 raw dried herb capsules, or classic steam and alcohol tinctures in the 5:1 range, SCFE allows us to get beyond even 70:1 concentrations.

The resulting resinous matrix is expensive—one of Cognition™’s ingredient cost us $900 per kilo—but once you try it, you will realize why. It has allowed us to take natural plant-based nootropics to a whole new level.

The harvested plants are then taken to this Supercritical Fluid Extraction manufacturing lab, where each plant is processed down to the concentrations shown in the above Supplement Facts panel.

An effective brain wellness formula is not candy. It’s not a gummy bear, it’s not even a fun beverage. It is an intense tonic designed to work.

Source & Traceability

A driving force behind Synaptic is to show people the power of plant-based formulas for their physical and mental well-being. This puts a paramount importance on knowing exactly where each ingredient comes from.

We spent months searching for the growers and manufacturers who know their farmers and had the documentation of how each plant is grown, and then had the technology to turn these plants into high concentrations.

This is the view up the hill from the farm. All plants are grown without pesticides or herbicides, and this requires being away from pollution sources and more in nature.

I'm just on my third day, and the benefits keep expanding. It's like I had a deficiency in the active nutrients in these plants, and I am getting replenished. The results are a growing calm awareness, insight and memory."

Why does Cognition™ work? 

Here is what each ingredient does —

Bacopa monnieri. Potency = 55x strength

support of cognitive function, memory, learning, and concentration.

Celastrus paniculatus. 4x strength

supports memory improvement by increasing acetylcholine levels in the brain

Centella asiatica. 55x strength

Several mechanisms of actions have demonstrated support for protection against brain plaque (beta-amyloid) formation, and anti-stress and mood uplifting properties in pre-clinical studies.

A-glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline.

An important neurochemical in the brain for paying attention, learning and memory.

Convolvulus pluricaulis. 65x Strength

Clinical studies further show that this plant induces a state of calm and peace.

Griffonia simplicifolia. 55x strength

It is the only plant native to Africa in our formula that is the source of the amino acid 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). 5-HTP supports the production of serotonin and elevates mood.

Mucuna pruriens. 75x strength

The seeds of this legume contain the precursors to some of our brain’s most important neurotransmitters, including noradrenaline, dopamine, and serotonin

Ocimum sanctum. 33x strength

studies show pharmacological actions including positive effects on memory, anti-depression, and boosting acetylcholine levels

L2™ –  Longevity 2

Out of the world’s entire botanical array, two of the very top contenders for human longevity are: 

  1. Spores from the mature Lingzhi/Reishi mushroom cap
  2. Cordyceps militaris

We combed the world to locate a rare grower of these two USDA certified organic superfoods. They collect deep mountain wild strains each year for domestication and own the soil and land from which these nutraceuticals grow. 

  • 100% USDA Organic certified. 100% Vegan. 
  • Spores are from the underside of fully mature fruiting cap. 
  • No inferior mycelium. No fillers, grains, mushroom cap or stem.
  • Economy pack—4 ounces is the equivalent of 2-4 bottles of capsules.

Here’s the dirty secret amongst mycologists: 99% of all US-based manufacturers of Lingzhi/Reishi products (yes, even those very well-known ones) don’t actually use mushrooms in their products. They instead use mycelium, which they grow in liquid tanks in 8 or 9 days. 

We use actual true full fruiting body mushrooms, which take 6-9 months to grow, in real dirt. The difference in their effect is palpable. 

Used for centuries to strengthen immunity, improve athletic performance, reduce the effects of aging, promote longer life, increase energy, stamina, and reduce fatigue.

A hard-to-beat price.

Each L2 pouch contains 4 ounces, or 114 grams. (Most medicinal mushroom products contain 60 or 120 500 milligrams, for a total of 30 or 60 grams). Priced as low as $59, we believe L2 gives everyone a chance to experience the effects that these two medicinal mushrooms offer.
