What Are Nootropics?

The Beginner’s Guide to Smart Drugs aka Nootropics

 

What are nootropics?

“Nootropics” is a general term for any drugs that enhance the power of your brain. Some drugs improve the memory, while others optimize cognitive performance in different ways.

Today, nootropics are popular among many different types of people. Some studies have estimated smart drug usage at around 25% on college campuses. Smart drugs are also popular among the elderly, where they have been shown to delay the onset of diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Smart drugs have also been used to treat ADHD.

Smart drugs are classified as “nootropics”. While all smart drugs are nootropics, not all nootropics are smart drugs. Nootropics also include natural brain-enhancing herbs and vitamins like Vitamin B and Vitamin D, as well as isoflavones, Ginkgo Biloba, and Omega-3 oils.

Although, they are referred to as smart drugs, nootropics are not entirely made up of drugs. They are also made up of traditional herbs, vitamins, and supplements.

Noopept

Noopept is the newest and most powerful nootropic supplement available on the market. It is reported to be 1000 times more potent per mg than other nootropics. Noopept is part of the racetam class of drugs. Racetams are thought to work by increasing the frequency of activation of the cholinergic receptors in the brain. Racetams consequently may increase memory capacity and mental function when taken as a supplement.

In Russia, Noopept has been used to treat brain damage caused by excessive alcohol consumption. Studies have shown Noopept to have neuroprotective and memory enhancing qualities. Unlike some other racetams, Noopept exhibits a high degree of bioavailability when taken orally. Noopept also demonstrates a superior ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, thus being more effective in lower doses.
