Welcome to the Pure Nootropics Knowledge Base!

The purpose of this section is to help you better understand nootropic compounds in general and the specifics of some of the nootropics we carry. For someone new to nootropics, we suggest you start here:

Before getting too far we want to mention that nootropics are a very subjective experience and while a particular compound works for one individual it may not work for another, this is why we put together a tutorial for tracking mental improvements with nootropics that you can use to track the efficacy of a particular compound.

For anyone seeking general overall cognitive enhancement, optimum nutrition, diet, and lifestyle are the best starting points. This includes simple things like getting a proper amount of sleep (check out our sleep guide for tips on falling asleep and staying asleep) and getting enough micro-nutrients (see our posts on the importance of Choline, getting your omega 3’s, and why you should be supplementing Vitamin D for more information, as a large number of individuals are deficient in one of these).

For more specific information about particular nootropics, each section below covers:

  • Different decisions when buying nootropics
  • Interactions with other compounds
  • Side effects / benefits
  • Studies

There are a wide variety of nootropics as it is a broad category that encompasses many synthetic and natural compounds. The term was derived in the early 1970s and some of the most popular nootropics are part of the “racetam” family. Note that we provide more information about each item on its respective product page under the “full analysis” tab.
