About
"Personally, when I take Cognition, I feel an immediate increase in well-being, and a clarity in the mind that gives me a sense of motivation to do something good and worthy. None of its ingredients are using up my body's important nutrients. I'm not being tweaked. Instead, I'm feeding my brain the nutrients that it needs to operate better."

CEO

Some background.

I’m Scott, 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 and longevity 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 arguably the world’s first non-caffeinated think drink company, and our Brain Toniq beverage was the first nootropic ever to be sold in Whole Foods. By 2012, over 1,400 health food stores across North America, Europe and Russia were carrying Brain Toniq with over 2.5 million units a year.

Intent.

The impetus behind Synaptic Scientific is to take all of the best superfoods that I’ve been using myself for decades, and to create a small set of extremely potent, best-in-their-class formulas that have a noticeable, palpable effect on health, and to find a way to price them better than anything else in the marketplace. 

My decades-long mission carries through in Synaptic Scientific, and that is to expose more and more people to the power and intelligence of using herbal plants as their main medicine cabinet.

Cognition™

Cognition™ takes nootropics to completely new heights by utilizing CO2 technical innovations that brings each plant’s concentrations to extraordinary levels.

Eight months of R&D later, the results are stellar. Personally, when I take Cognition, I feel an immediate increase in well-being, and a clarity in the mind that gives me a sense of motivation to do something good and worthy. None of its ingredients are using up my body’s important nutrients. I’m not being tweaked.  Instead, I’m feeding my brain the nutrients that it needs to operate better.

Nourishing the brain, instead of tweaking it.

Brain chemicals—serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, and more—influence mood, mental health, and sound reasoning. Chemical imbalances of these can easily be caused by stress, bad dietary choices and the use of chemical stimulants.

Thirty million Americans currently using  amphetamine-based pharmaceutical stimulants. $13 billion is spent on energy drinks in the US alone. And chemical nootropics like Modafinil and Piracetam aren’t going away.

As a natural product formulator, my interest isn’t in ingredients that pull nutrients from the body. I’m interested in feeding the system with plant-based ingredients that nourish the mind of every user.
