How Are They?
Through the end of 2018 & 2019, we materialized in our findings through six unique blends from spices, herbs, other ingredients, and unique processes. Here are a few of the beta tester's reactions and comments!
Knowledge & Science
The term nootropic gained attention during the late 1960s, when psychologist and chemist Dr. Corneliu Girguea synthesized piracetam, for the first time, providing a different outlook to what it means to boost and modulate our executive functions through directly targeting the blood-brain barrier. Now it's commonly used to describe natural or chemical-based substances that aim to boost cognitive or executive functions. In the realm of natural ingredients, phytochemicals are the hidden gems that influence one's neurotransmitter reactions and focus on the second metabolic layer, leading into the discussion where the right ingredients can create the neutral balance our gut-brain axis needs.
YUNO's Team & Advisors
Shenkeri “Nika” Chandramohan & Bryan Kay are the co-founders of YUNO by Food to Heal which connects the world's diverse ingredients and their influence toward experiences. They're supported by a group of dedicated advisors from Maja Stevanovich @ Board of Director of Mental Health America, Danijela Unkovich @ NSNZ Registered Nutritionist and Adidas Runners Auckland Nutritionist, Dr. Ghjuvan Grimaud @ Founder and CEO of Biomathematica, Luke Schantz @ Global Developer Advocate at IBM, David Wysoki @ CCNY Code & Veteran Counsel, and Micah Brown @ Centiment.
Leading up to YUNO, Nika is a food researcher who traveled across over 80 countries, learning and exploring the usage of these ingredients from the natives to discern fact from folklore, and during this time was also a journalist covering European politics. Bryan was a political campaign organizer in New York, before joining a Neuro-AI marketing company through the campaign. It was here, he began to understand and begin to break down the barrage of mixed messaging in the natural products category, and the lack of clarity behind the products and “natural ingredients” on the market.
Together, they first started Food to Heal to develop unique meals utilizing the tenants of these truly natural ingredients in their natural form to help improve the working experience of uniquely functioning teams and developed these meals throughout 2018 for creatives and professionals, as well as companies such as IBM and WeWork, to help enrich the experience of work & events. However, scale issues took over and as to get the best, they only used natural ingredients to cook full meals that didn’t hand itself much to shelf-life and distribution. While we did love our meals, it was then, they had the window and the additional knowledge from Food to Heal to take a breath and create a lasting form that can truly be for every modern professional, YUNO Natural Nootropics Drinks.
