We're No. 8
We believe in the power of nootropics and mindful practices to help everyone live a balanced, harmonious life.
Inspired by our heritage, created for you.
In Chinese culture, the number 8 symbolizes luck and harmony, with its two halves held in perfect symmetry both vertically and horizontally. We chose No. 8 to honor our roots and reflect our belief that mental wellness is grounded in bringing the body and mind into balance.
“I believe good brain function is the foundation of mental wellness. I choose to support my brain with a range of supplements that promotes optimal performance and enhances my mental clarity.”
Co-Founder & CEO
“I love journaling. Writing things down and sketching helps me develop my thoughts, recall conversations I’ve had, and keeps me organized. It also helps me stay off of my phone.”
VP of Finance & Operations
"Carving out me time is crucial to my mental wellness. I may fill it with a Peloton ride, a walk in the park, or a couple of glasses of wine - the important thing is I control this time, and that’s what keeps me grounded and motivated."
