What ingredients are in euphorics?
Euphorics are created from a stack of balancing adaptogens (herbs that manage stress), replenishing nootropics (compounds that enhance cognition), and nourishing botanics (plants that supply a buffer of nutrients). The only missing ingredient from euphorics is you — mood, hormones, and neurochemistry included — which has just as much influence on the effect of euphorics as what’s inside the bottle.
What are nootropics?
Nootropics are compounds, some natural and others manmade, that have been found to deliver cognitive benefits to the brain without compromising our natural faculties. Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea, the psychologist and chemist who coined the term, insisted that in order for a compound to be a nootropic it should: enhance memory and ability to learn; help the brain function under disruptive conditions; protect the brain from chemical and physical assaults; increase the efficacy of neuronal firing control mechanisms; possess few or no side effects; and be virtually non-toxic. Kin contains only nootropics that replenish the body, which in combination amount to around ¼ the typical nootropic serving when compared to someone who might consume them for performance or cognitive benefits.
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are herbs and fungi that manage stress. Used for thousands of years in ayurveda, a medical system originating in India, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, adaptogens adapt to what our bodies need to balance our hormonal response to stress in effort to reach homeostasis. This means the same adaptogen may have slightly different effects depending on your nervous system, but their primary goal is to restore balance on a cellular level.
What are nootropics?
Nootropics are compounds — some natural and others synthetic — that enhance cognition. Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea, the psychologist and chemist who coined the term, insisted that a nootropic should: enhance memory and ability to learn; help the brain function under disruptive conditions; protect the brain from chemical and physical assaults; increase the efficacy of neuronal firing control mechanisms; possess few or no side effects; and be virtually non-toxic. Nootropics work by targeting specific neurotransmitters in the brain like dopamine and serotonin to produce effects. Kin contains nootropics in microdosed amounts — about 1/10 of what is considered a typical dose — so you feel the effects without overdoing it.
What are botanics?
Botanics are plants that supply a buffer of nutrients. Equal parts feeling, flavor, and function, botanics harmonize with the adaptogens and nootropics by acting as layer of protection for the pleasure network of our brains. While other ingredients stimulate the brain, botanics works to replenish nutrients in your body, balancing your reaction so there’s not too much stimulus or too little nourishment in too fast a time. This helps to avoid the dreaded “crash” after the effects have run their course.
How do the ingredients work together?
Because Kin High Rhode offers us a new way to feel — easing stress and stimulating bliss in one go — it requires a precise blend of nootropics, adaptogens, and botanics to craft. In combination, these ingredients give our body what it needs to replenish its dopamine, serotonin, and GABA supplies — neurotransmitters in the brain responsible for helping us feel relaxed, open, curious, and connected — while balancing hormones like cortisol and calming our parasympathetic nervous system to help us adapt to stress. The overall effect — lifted yet grounded, clear yet calm, blissful yet balanced — wouldn’t be possible without the symbiotic function of both herbal ingredients gathered from Earth and synthetic ones created in a lab.
Is Kin natural?
Kin uses natural, plant-based ingredients whenever possible. All of High Rhode’s botanics and adaptogens came straight from Earth. Some of its nootropics are natural while others are human made, requiring a little alchemy to produce the right effect. In order to craft the feeling of euphorics — lifted yet grounded, clear yet calm, blissful yet balanced — we found that combining natural and synthetic ingredients produced the optimal effect. All of Kin’s ingredients are of the purest potency and highest quality available. If you have health questions, ask your doctor.
