Think Gum has landed in Kazakhstan!

We recently partnered with a new distribution company in Kazakhstan to bring Think Gum to the masses in Central Asia.  For those of you that don’t know, Kazakhstan is strategically located between Russia and China and is the 9th largest country in the world by area.  It is also home to about 17 million people including many students who are eager to get their hands on Think Gum.  Please check out the Think Gum Kazakhstan website and this awesome commercial they just released.

Think Gum Spotted on Popular Japanese Website Collegino

Head will be better!? Gums such as the topic of magic in the US "Think Gum"

Head will be better!? Gums such as the topic of magic in the US “Think Gum”

I love it when we get media coverage in other countries!  The popular Japanese college blog Collegino just posted this about Think Gum.  I’m sure it is well written but the google translate is pretty funny.  Here is one example “Daily occurrence that for American college students, go doing a lot of challenges. Was discovered in chance school kiosks such gum “Think Gum” like magic that will help such a day.”

Memory Clinic Joke

Two very elderly couples bump into each other in the street, Jack says ” hi there George, how are you?” George says ” Great! we’ve just been to that new memory clinic, they teach you how to remember things using word association, it’s really good” Jack asks ” really? what’s the name of the clinic?” George thinks for a moment and then says ” let me see, eh, what do you call that flower with a thorny stem?” Jack says “A rose”? “Ah yes that’s it” George turns to his wife….”Rose, what’s the name of that clinic”?

If this sounds like you or someone you know, consider chewing Think Gum.

A Begginer’s Guide to Nootropics

Reddit has you covered on nootropics

Reddit has you covered on nootropics

As an inventor of a “Nootropic Stack” in chewing gum form aka Think Gum, I get many question like “What is a nootropic?” and “what do I need to know about taking nootropics?” and even the occasional “Will nootropics make me a genius?”.  Instead of answering these questions partially on the blog, I thought I would call attention the nootropic subreddit and the associated Beginner’s Guide to Nootropics.  If you can’t find the answer to your nootropic questions on the subreddit, just ask and a happy redditor should help you out in hours.

Is Biohacking the Next Big Thing?

Is biohacking your brain with nootropics like Think Gum the next big trend?

Is biohacking your brain with nootropics like Think Gum the next big trend?

There is an interesting piece on smart drugs and biohacking in CNN Money.  The point of the article is that there is intense pressure in Silicon Valley to succeed and entrepreneurs are turning to Smart Drugs better known as nootropics like coffee, pills and even Think Gum.  I’ve been in Silicon Valley for over 10 years now at the top institutions in the country earning degrees and doing the entrepreneur thing and I agree it is a growing trend.  Not a large trend yet, but people are craving ways to maximize their brain power and are turning to smart drugs like Think Gum.  CNN says that taking smart drugs is part of the larger trend of biohacking or more clearly put, people want to optimize how their minds and bodies work.  This is nothing new.  People have desired fit bodies and more intelligence for centuries.  What has changed is there are more and more products offering to help achieve these biological goals.  When most people think of biohacking, they are thinking of genetic engineering or electrical devices like Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, I suppose that smart drugs count too.

While I certainly wouldn’t recommend popping hundreds of pills a day like Dave Asprey.  There is certainly data to support the use of some brain enhancing ingredients and technologies.  Nootropics are drugs and like all drugs they can have side effects.  The ingredients in Think Gum were specifically chosen because they deliver the maximum benefits and based on published peer-reviewed research are overwhelmingly safe.  In fact we’ve sold over 2,000,000 pieces of gum without incident.  Not only this, but many new ingredients have no data to support they work.  Think Gum on the other hand has been extensively tested and in a 2011 study was shown to increase memory by over 25%.

I hope the biohacking and nootropic trends continue.  I’d love to make a Think Gum Extra Strength Product at some point if we have safe proven ingredients that deliver.

Chinese Test-Prep Schools Need Think Gum

The NY Times just published an important article by Brook Larmer on test prep schools in China.  At one such site in Maotanchang, 20,000 students study around the clock for China’s national college entrance exam called the gaokao.  This intense test is the sole criteria used to determine college admissions.  If you though the SAT’s were stressful, you had it easy!  The focus of the test on on memorization and students consume special supplements called “Clear Mind” and “Six Walnuts” to help them get an edge.  It got me thinking, do these students even know about Think Gum and that it has been demonstrated to improve memory?  We do ship to China, but I’d like to export Think Gum to these test prep schools in large amounts.  If anyone reading this has ties to these prep school and would like to export or import Think Gum, please
