Each of the functional mushroom blends and selected herbs in NeonMind coffees contain adaptogens, which means they work with the body to help manage physical, mental and emotional stressors.

Functional mushrooms found in NeonMind coffees, such as cordyceps, lion’s mane, reishi, and turkey tail; provide long-term physical, neurological and immunological benefits.
The initial product launch will include two varieties of ground coffee. Protect Blend is a Peruvian coffee with medium roast French vanilla, turkey tail, cordyceps, Moringa extract and Amla extract. These ingredients have the proven benefit of relieving stress, supporting the immune system and supporting cognitive functions. Focus Blend is a dark roasted Peruvian coffee with lion’s mane extract, reishi extract, Gotu Kola extract and Brahmi extract. These ingredients are a healthy source of fungal polysaccharides with immunomodulatory properties that help improve memory and cognitive function, increase alertness, support the immune system, and combat mental and physical stress. The company will soon launch its two instant coffee blends in the United States as dietary supplements.
NeonMind Coffee Food Supplements follow all FDA regulations that focus on comprehensive GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) to ensure the identity, purity, quality, strength and composition of dietary supplements. NeonMind only uses certified organic mushroom extracts that go through the decoction process (traditional boiling water) to maximize the bioavailability of the product. NeonMind follows strict US Pharmacopoeia guidelines for lead and other chemicals required by Proposition 65 for safe daily consumption. All final production batches are sent to a third party lab for rigorous microbial testing so that the copacker issues the certificate of analysis of the product which means the product is safe for the consumer market.

NeonMind is engaged in preclinical research to develop potential clinical treatments and wellness products to treat obesity and weight management issues and to promote health and wellness.
