PEOPLE TO FIND
Danny Lowe, CEO & Founder
Energy Gum was invented by Danny Lowe when he was at university studying sports science. As part of his final he was looking at how to provide a performance boost to athletes as quickly as possible. Realising that the quickest way to introduce active ingredients was through the gums, Danny found a manufacturer that could combine the ingredients into a chewing gum. This worked well for the study and also became a hit with fellow students who didn't only use it to help with sports performance, but also to hit deadlines and help with hangovers. The purpose of BLOCKHEAD was established, to help people find their focus, quickly.
Building on Energy Gum the range expanded as Danny saw opportunities to help people with other needs. A national increase in Seasonal Affective Disorder lead to the invention of Vitamin Gum, which provides vitamins D,C,B6 & A in a delicious lemon flavour gum. Heightened levels of stress amongst the population were the inspiration behind Calm Mints. Most recently, face masks have lead to the development of a refreshing White Gum that also helps polish your smile so you can feel fresh when you take off your mask. And completing the collection, with the world slowly awakening to the benefits of CBD, we’ve created a perfectly portable way to ensure you are getting a precise dose, whether you like to chew to relieve anxiety on your morning commute, or if you chew after a workout to aid muscle recovery. At BLOCKHEAD we continue to research premium quality functional confectionery with more exciting functional products in the pipeline.
