It was a long and warm sunny day when I first received a package of Neurogum. Since I didn’t consume any caffeine that day, I immediately decided to try it out.
As I always do when experimenting and trying new supplements, I prepared a set of games that would take my focus away and help me unbiasedly review this caffeine gum.
However, just a couple of minutes after I started chewing Neurogum, I got an unexpected Skype call that had to be answered. As you can imagine, I completely forgot that I was chewing Neurogum.
After speaking to a colleague of mine for an hour or so, I finally remembered that the Neurogum was still in my mouth.
And I felt extremely focused and motivated.
Neurogum is a powerful combination of caffeine, L-theanine, vitamins B6 and B12.
It enhances focus, energy, and cognition. It is 100% vegan, sugar-free, and aspartame-free.
Oh, and it leaves your breath fresh.
I believe that this is an excellent invention for millions of people who need a quick energy boost that works within minutes.
Due to the absorption through buccal administration (while chewing), you get an almost instant energy kick.
Now, I’ve first reviewed Neurogum back in 2017, when the company just launched (if I remember correctly).
But I got a new pack of gums in 2019, after they improved them, and redesigned the packages.
What has changed since my first review?
- Besides the Neurogum, they also developed Neuro Mints
- The brand & the package have been redesigned
- Neurogum became very popular
Apart from that, the gum stayed pretty much the same.
Same goes with the taste, which is all right, but nothing special (I prefer the Neuro Mints).
So, is Neurogum worth taking? To answer this, let’s have a look at the benefits.
Benefits Of Neurogum
You know that I never review products I personally don’t use or which don’t deliver positive benefits.
And Neurogum is not an exception.
So, let’s have a look at the main benefits of chewing it:
1. It enhances our memory, alertness, and concentration
An optimal ratio between caffeine and L-theanine works to increase our ability to ignore the distraction and reduce the classic caffeine crash.
To say it differently: You get the benefits of drinking coffee and green tea at the same time.
2. It delivers an instant energy boost
All the ingredients in this caffeine gum are absorbed faster through chewing. This results in increased energy within minutes of chewing and lasts for hours (it depends from person to person, but I felt energized for at least 1 hour).
3. Neurogum is a nootropic that keeps your breath fresh
Imagine you are on your way to a job interview, meeting, or some other appointment. You are running late, you might be a bit tired, and definitely stressed out (which is quite a typical positive correlation, isn’t it?)
Instead of searching for Starbucks, you can simply reach into your pocket, take Neurogum, and voila, you are ready!
Caffeine gum delivers a 2 in 1 solution: A controllable energy boost with fresh breath.
Neurogum Taste And Strength
Before I tried Neurogum for the first time, I said to myself: “Either the taste sucks, or it simply doesn’t work!”
And I was wrong. Twice.
I have to admit that the taste of a regular chewing gum you buy in a grocery store is better.
But I’m sure most of you will find the taste of Neurogum acceptable. Some may even like it.
I find that Neurogum tastes OK. Not delicious but not too bad either. There is definitely some room for improvement.
What about the strength of the caffeine and L-theanine kick?
Ha, well, this is a tricky question.
I find it moderate strong (on a scale from 1-5 I would give it 2 points).
Bulletproof coffee and yerba mate definitely deliver a stronger boost that usually lasts longer.
But caffeine gum kicks in faster, it refreshes your breath, and it is “portable.”
Now, can you count all those days when you have no time for a coffee, but chewing gum would help?
