Have you ever watched the movie “Limitless?” If you have, then you know what Nootropic means. It’s a movie where the star, a loser who is played by Bradley Cooper, stumbles across an underground synthetic Nootropic drug that when taken allows him to perform superhuman computing tasks. He remembers every detail of his past, everything he has ever read is instantly available, he understands patterns and can think way beyond any living person alive. This allows him to make truckloads of cash, lure and charm almost anyone he wants, and also gets him into a lot of trouble.
Nootropic (noo • traa • puhk):
~ Compound meant to enhance memory or cognitive function.
The movie ‘Limitless’ is great, but Nootropics like that just don’t exist… at least, that we know of.
Whats available today is a massive trend of supplements, herbs and drinks that are focused on improving cognitive function. Basically, a bunch of smart pills and powders.
Purpose of taking Nootropics is to:
- Lift mood
- Improved learning and short-term memory
- Increase resilience to Stress & Trauma
- Brain Cell protection
Nootropics can be broken into two basic categories, Natural and synthetic.
Natural Nootropics are crafted from herbs, plants, roots and other natural compounds. Side effects are very limited from these types of Nootropics as most are Adaptogens. Adaptogens are like your own personal handyman, they find what’s broken or worn out in your body, and improve it.
Examples of Natural Nootropics:
Synthetic Nootropics are drugs crafted by using man-made chemicals in a lab. Some synthetic Nootropics actually mimic natural components found in the human body, plants and herbs. Synthetic Nootropics usually show up as pills, powders or capsules. These types of Nootropics may have side effects.

Future of Nootropics
Nootropics are forming a new class of supplements leading the way for peak performance of the human mind. Is this a coincidence that Nootropics rise comes at a time when humanity is facing more stress, greater cognitive load, and more distraction than at any other time in history?
As we continue to study Nootropics, we also have begun to understand the power of a healthy body. Our brain resides within the soup of our body, and if our body is unwell, so is our mind. Nootropics are the powdered sugar to French toast. They add a little bit, but it’s the toast that makes it.
To get the most from your brain and emotions, heal your body, eliminate sugar, exercise, load up on essential minerals and nutrients, and detoxify. This is the path to stable energy and focus.
FlowBlend is focused on making Nootropics through a delivery method that has been used for thousands of years, but has been neglected until now. Sublingual, meaning under the tongue and Buccal, which means through the cheek and gum.
Pouches have primarily used for nicotine delivery up until now, but an opportunity has been missed. Pouches deliver the ingredients quickly into the blood stream, and can be very enjoyable, like a stick of gum.
