Black Black Gum by Lotte (¥2,352Prices are approximate only and subject to change.

)* contains caffeine and is ideal if you need to be alert and awake quickly but don’t want to arrive at your office with coffee breath.

Black Black Gum also contains ginkgo leaf extract which is shown to enhance memory and concentration, improve blood flow to most tissues and organs (including microcirculation in small capillaries) and protect against oxidative cell damage from free radicals. It may also block many of the effects of blood clotting that have been related to the development of a number of cardiovascular, renal, respiratory and central nervous system disorders.

Guarana extract, another ingredient of Black Black Gum, is, like caffeine an effective stimulant but also improves memory, alertness and mood. Chrysanthemum extract is popular in Asia for making people more alert. It’s said to clear the liver and the eyes and also used to treat blurring, spots in front of the eyes, diminished vision, and dizziness (The health claims of chrysanthemum are considered anecdotal since no western scientific studies have substantiated these claims).

Black Black Gum is an efficient morning-coffee substitute, especially for those days, when you’re in a hurry. I relied on Black Black Gum in Tokyo, where I had at times 3h commutes to work: I slept during the entire train ride and at my destination had one or two pieces to wake myself up.

Ingredients:
(Gum arabic), coloring viscosity (xylitol, acesulfame K, aspartame ยท L-phenylalanine compound, sucralose), perfume, rose maltitol, dextrin, ginkgo leaf extract, guarana extract, chrysanthemum extract, gum base, sweeteners (gardenia, cocoa, caramel), caffeine, brightening agent, nicotinic acid amide**.

(Note to Vegans: Black Black Gum does not contain gelatine, but it was used in the manufacturing process.)

Please ingest with care if you’re sensitive to caffeine.

* One bottle of Black Black Gum Hard mini contains appr. 51g/23pieces. One set contains 8 bottles.

** Please note: An urban legend claims that Black Black Gum contains nicotine, the parasympathomimetic alkaloid found in the nightshade family of plants (Solanaceae) but in fact it contains nicotinamide, a different substance related to B vitamins. If you seek to indulge in your nicotine addiction, you still have to stick to cigarettes or nicotin patches.
