How It Started
Although it already feels like a lifetime ago, I remember trying to keep up with 12-14 hour work days - working an 8AM-5PM, Monday through Friday job, and then freelancing 5PM to 11PM or later, and working weekends, for health and sports nutrition startups. I was exhausted, but I wanted to keep going.
I began looking into nootropics (natural cognitive performance enhancers) and was discouraged when I saw my options. I remember thinking:
"$100 for THAT?"
"How many pills do I have to take each day?!"
"That can't possibly be good for me long-term"
My continued research eventually brought me to the wonderful world of medicinal mushroom extracts. Finally, something natural, earth-grown, and affordable. As a coffee lover, being able to mix these extracts in my coffee (which I drink twice a day anyway) was a huge bonus. Needless to say, I went down the rabbit hole of the medicinal mushroom world. I was hooked immediately when I mixed Lion's Mane and Cordyceps into my morning coffee. In that moment, I knew this was the answer I was looking for.
I began testing different formulas of coffee roasts and mushroom blends, looking for the perfect balance of potency and flavor. After a few months of tinkering, I found that perfect balance. Delightfully smooth, bold, and chocolatey coffee with efficient doses (1000mg) of medicinal mushrooms per serving.
After months of drinking what is now NeuRoast™ Classic, I realized something peculiar, I no longer felt drained. Everything else in my life remained consistent - I was working the same hours, getting the same amount of exercise, eating the same diet, and drinking the same amount of coffee every day (2 cups) but I wasn't hitting my usual 2PM and 6PM walls. In fact, I felt great all day. My focus, my energy, my mood all improved substantially.
That's when I realized we don't need more caffeine for better focus and more energy - we just need smarter coffee.
