Crowdsourcing Mornings: IQ Bar

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

IQ Bars are the first nutrition bars on the market optimized for the brain. Aside from tasting 10X better than other bars (objectively, of course), only IQ Bars center on these 3 pillars of awesomeness:

  • Sustained Mental Energy: IQ Bars flip the conventional bar’s macro-nutritional profile on its head. They’re HIGH in healthy fats and LOW in net carbs (total carbs – fiber). That means less blood sugar “roller coasters” and more “smooth sailing in the sun” mental energy.
  • Critical Brain Nutrients: IQ Bars are optimized around a unique mix of 5 brain-critical compounds: fiber, medium-chain-triglycerides (MCT’s), omega-3’s, flavonoids, and vitamin-E. These nutrients were chosen for their strong links to positive brain outcomes in scientific literature.
  • Whole Food Ingredients: You won’t find words that start with “X” and sound like cleaning agents on our labels. They formulated only with ingredients an 8-year-old could find in a grocery store because Mother Nature got things right in the first place.

Numerous studies have found whole foods to have superior nutritional value over their constituent parts, largely because nutrients in whole foods are typically more bioavailable (absorbable and useful) to us.  This is why – while many approach the “brain hacking” space with pills and tonics – they do so with REAL FOOD that has inputs you can actually pronounce. You won’t find bizarre words like “Xanthan Gum” and “Erythritol” on their packaging because you should be able to understand, trust, and relate to the food you put in your body.

As of November 20th, this project has raised $19,000 of their $10,000 goal. This project has 55 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $15, you will get one of each flavor plus recipes.  For a pledge of $32, you will get one box of 12 bars.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
