Supplement Engineer Podcast Episode #:130 Dr. Gerald Horn & Breinfuel Nootropic Energy Drink

In this episode of the Supplement Engineer Podcast, I'm joined by board-certified ophthalmologist and creator of Breinfuel -- a nootropic-infused cognitive enhancement & performance beverage including: eight essential amino acids (from hydrolyzed collagen), zinc, creatine , L-theanine, vitamin C, vitamin E, beet root powder, D-ribose sugar, protein, MCTs, natural caffeine from green coffee, and green tea extract.


Dr. Gerald Horn, M.D. is a laser vision specialist and is one of the pioneers in the field, having dedicated the majority of his career full-time to laser vision surgery, and trained in procedures that evolved into LASIK. Dr. Horn received his undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and his medical degree in ophthalmology from the University of Illinois Medical School. He completed an internship at Rush-Presbyterian St. Luke’s Hospital and went on to complete several mini-fellowships on LASIK, radial keratotomy, ALK, and epikeratophakia. Dr. Horn is a fellow of and board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.
