Breakthrough Weight-Loss Treatment Shamelessly Suppressed… Until Now!

NeonMind Biosciences Psy-che-delics Discovery Set to Transform this Potential $245 Billion Market (1)

We’re overwhelmed with endless diets, supplements, and meal replacement plans claiming to ensure rapid weight loss. Results are unpredictable—and they rarely last.

What HAS been proven to help in weight loss are mush-rooms. No, not the kind you eat on a salad. We’re talking about the “mind elevating” type.

Until recently the law frowned upon this therapy. All the time lobbyists for the “weight loss” industry worked hard to keep it that way…it’s just not good for their clients’ bottom line. 

But in reality, it’s not what’s on people’s plates…it’s what’s in their heads.

NeonMind Biosciences (CSE:NEON) (OTC:NMDBF) is bringing the first FDA and Health Canada approved psy-che-delic therapeutic to patients struggling with obesity.

NeonMind Announces Successful Completion of Pre-IND Consultation with FDA on Clinical Path for Obesity Drug Candidate NEO-001

At the Crossroads of Two Explosive Markets

Remember the incredible run in the early days of the “cann-a-bis” craze? Combine the psy-che-delics market projected to reach $6.85 billion, and the weight management market which is estimated to reach a massive $245 billion – and the $22.1 billion cann-a-bis market looks like child’s play.

Mike Tyson, US Veterans, and Upstart Politicians are Paving the Path to our Next Revolution.

There is a groundswell of public enthusiasm, shining the light on the potential therapeutic benefits of psy-che-delic medicine. In fact, many localities—particularly in North America—are updating their laws.

On the “front lines” of the psy-che-delic revolution, there’s no shortage of celebrities and household names. Former world heavyweight boxing champion “Iron Mike” Tyson is an advocate for psy-che-delics, evangelizing all over the country.

Mike recently spoke at the largest psy-che-delic medicine business event, Wonderland, held in Miami Florida. “It has made me more creative and helps me focus,” Tyson postulated, “I’m more present as a businessman and entrepreneur. ”

Veterans Joining the Fight for Legalization

More than a half-dozen municipalities decriminalized psi-lo-cybin, and combat veterans have become a leading force in the drive to legalize psy-ched-elic medicine. Vets credit them with helping ease the post-traumatic stress, anxiety and depression that are often tied to their experiences in the military.

And thanks to NeonMind Biosciences (CSE:NEON)(OTC:NMDBF), weight management can be added to the list. 

Pennsylvania: the Keystone to Legalization and MASSIVE Fortunes

As support for psy-che-delics therapy grows overwhelming, even the government is getting on board.

A bill was recently introduced in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives called the Public Health Benefits of Psi-lo-cybin Act.

This revolutionary bill would establish a framework for clinical studies of psi-lo-cybin, the active ingredient in magic mush-rooms. It would give researchers some cover for sidestepping cumbersome federal regulations that still categorize the substance as having no accepted medical use despite growing evidence that it does.

 

This is not an isolated instance. Michigan Sen. Jeff Irwin (D-Ann Arbor) introduced legislation recently that would decriminalize the use of psi-lo-cybin and mes-ca-line — two plants and fungi commonly found in psy-che-delics. 

As you can see it’s getting very hard to ignore the positive research showing the amazing healing properties of psi-lo-cybin.

Now there may be very little holding back successful companies like NeonMind Biosciences (CSE:NEON)(OTC:NMDBF) moving forward.

Why NeonMind Biosciences (CSE:NEON)(OTC:NMDBF)?

NeonMind Biosciences is on the move with two dr-ug development candidates exploring psi-lo-cybin as a breakthrough approach to treat obesity and promote lasting weight loss.

NeonMind’s first dr-ug candidate employs psi-lo-cybin as an agonist to the serotonin receptor 5-HT2A, which is involved in the hallu-cin-ogenic effect of psy-che-delics. 

The second dr-ug candidate employs psi-lo-cybin as an agonist to the serotonin 5-HT2C receptor, which controls appetite.

The company is also working with Dr. C. Laird Birmingham, a Specialist in Internal Medicine, an Epidemiologist and Biostatistician, and a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of British Columbia.  He’ll consult with the company to develop protocols for its Phase 2 Clinical Trial administering psi-lo-cybin to treat obese patients. (14)

NeonMind also just engaged Certara, the global leader in model-informed dr-ug development to provide strategic integrated dr-ug development support for the investigation of NeonMind’s psi-lo-cybin based dr-ug candidates for the treatment of obesity.  (15)

Plus, as NeonMind President and CEO Rob Tessarolo notes:

“It is a very exciting time to be in the psy-che-delics industry, which is undergoing rapid expansion. There is a continuous flow of new companies entering the market and each is replete with important research ideas and vying for the conditions necessary to drive growth.  The growing interest in studying psy-che-delic substances coupled with a fresh look from regulatory agencies means some of these substances have the potential to make it to market and help those patients who need innovative new approaches in care. We have established a distinctive focus on developing innovative treatment modalities for people dealing with obesity.” (16)

 

Psy-che-delic therapy has the potential to institute long term positive behaviors that may impact food intake and other lifestyle changes which affect weight management, and psi-lo-cybin in low doses may help control appetite and satiety. This important element sets us apart from numerous other psy-che-delic companies working to advance research ideas in psy-che-delic.” (16)

Is There a Good Deal of Support for Psy-che-delic Treatments?

As you can see there is plenty of very positive evidence.

The US FDA appears to be supportive of psi-lo-cybin research. In 2019, for example, the agency recognized psi-lo-cybin as a potentially “breakthrough therapy” for depression. (Source 17)

As noted by NPR, a study from JAMA Psychiatry recently found that psi-lo-cybin “worked better than the usual antidepressant medications.” (18)

Johns Hopkins Medicine launched the Center for Psy-che-delic and Consciousness Research to study how compounds like LS and psi-lo-cybin could potentially treat mental health problems such as anorexia, addiction and depression. (19)

The US FDA appears to be supportive of psi-lo-cybin research. In A study in the journal, Nature said that “Psi-lo-cybin for treatment-resistant depression: fMRI-measured brain mechanisms” – showed that around 47% of patients with treatment-resistant-depression showed positive responses approximately five weeks after psi-lo-cybin treatments.” (20)

State and local governments are also beginning to accept its usage as well. In fact, Oregon just became the first state to officially decriminalize the possession of psy-che-delics, joining Denver, Oakland, and Santa Cruz’s decisions on psi-lo-cybin. (21)

NeonMind Biosciences (CSE:NEON)(OTC:NMDBF)- Already Seeing Significant Success

NeonMind is also commercializing mush-room-infused food products- including products infused with Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Reishi and Cordyceps. 

Additionally, the company launched a coffee eCommerce platform in November 2020 with infused coffees. This platform has immense potential, because people are reportedly craving infused coffees and teas for an “added superfood go-to morning beverage,” according to Yahoo Life.

 

“Mush-rooms have long been used in Chinese medicine and newer research shows they are the highest dietary source of the antioxidants ergothioneine and glutathione, which help protect the body against the type of damage that can eventually contribute to age-related diseases like cancer, heart disease, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s,” says Beth Warren, RDN, author of Secrets of a Kosher Girl. “Mush-room coffees and teas can give anyone a boost, but they may be especially beneficial for those who are dealing with chronic diseases and inflammation.” (Source 22)

 

Some of the products being offered by NeonMind include: (23)

INSTANT COFFEES

Rest Blend — A well-balanced coffee infused with Lion’s Mane and Reishi mush-rooms, as well as Ashwagandha and Turmeric.

Energize Blend — Robust coffee infused with Turkey Tail and Cordycep mush-rooms, blended with Holy Basil and Moringa.

BREWED COFFEES
