An Introduction to Nootropics

Ever felt like you could use a boost of mental energy, focus, and clarity without the crash? Modern neuroscience has helped scientists discover “nootropics”, which can optimize your brain and general cognitive abilities. Many of these smart enhancers enable stimulation for the brain, enhanced memory, motivational benefits, and even improved mood. The scientific data is also proving how safe these neuro enhancers can be for treating a variety of conditions.

Many college students and professionals utilize excessive caffeine and enhancers like Adderall to get ahead, but safe nootropics are far healthier and even more effective. Modern life is moving too quickly, but there are safe alternatives like piracetamaniracetam, and natural options like L-theanine.

The discussion about nootropics has grown rapidly over the past decade. It was not long ago that something as simple as oxiracetam was hard to find online! Now there is far less taboo about the subject; figures like Joe Rogan and Tim Ferriss discuss their use of nootropics openly.

For a lot of people who are skeptical about nootropics, there are plenty of natural options that you may already use. Even though caffeine is technically not considered a “nootropic” by some definitions, combined with L-theanine, it can be a very potent cognitive performance enhancer. Also important are the plethora of studies showing the safety of enhancers like piracetam and aniracetam. The side effects are minor and the long-term effects are almost all positive.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of retailers that do not provide adequate safety in the nootropic industry. One important thing to watch for is certificates of authenticity (CoA) created by independent third-party laboratories. These show the purity and the quality of the product so that you feel safe.

For convenience purposes, it may also be useful to purchase aniracetam capsules and oxiracetam capsules rather than taking powders which may also taste poorly.

    I think marketing nootropics as “cognitive protectors” instead of “smart drugs” is a much more realistic and honest way of going about it. People take them expecting to feel like a superhuman genius or something and just end up disappointed, but their protective functions really do make them worth the price. Dementia and Alzheimer’s are terrifying.
