Around the world, advancement in technology and research is driving a shift in wellness. New consumer products such as smartphones, wearable tech and health apps, have expanded our focus from primarily illness and cures, to prevention, longevity and performance. This is what we call ‘Betterment’.
We are achieving this ‘Betterment’ in many ways; nutrition, sleep tracking, bio-hacking and cognitive enhancers to name a few. The Lucid Smart Pill is a product of this shift towards Betterment and is generating remarkable interest from people seeking to improve their productivity & performance at home and in the workplace.
Lucid is the brainchild of Co-Founder Aaron who, while caught up in the fast-paced world of startups, searched for ways to improve his concentration and boost his productivity. Along the way he uncovered a number of focus hacks that helped him think on his feet including regular exercise & time management tricks. But his big discovery was the world of cognitive enhancers.
More than a year on, the team has developed a new cognitive enhancer which comes in a simple pill. Inside, the carefully selected ingredients for Lucid occur both in nature and synthetically, ensuring a prime formula which has been designed to offer a safe and effective boost for your focus and memory.
