Nootropics – the smart drugs
Hello, gorgeous! On the market for some high-performance drugs? Known on the streets as smart drugs, doctors are claiming that they can boost your focus, learning abilities, memory, and overall cognitive functions, but do they really work? Who doesn’t want to take a pill and become smarter and more efficient in this demanding world? When I first heard of these supplements, I was so surprised and eager to try their magic myself.
These pills quickly gained popularity in today’s highly competitive society and are often used to boost memory, focus, creativity, intelligence and motivation. Are you curious to see what are the most popular nootropics these days and why? Keep reading…
Rhodiola Rosea, also known as arctic root or golden root, is a natural herb that may help your body adapt to periods of high stress and reduce associated mental fatigue. It also might help protect cells from damage, regulate heartbeat, and have the potential of improving learning and memory. Because it’s a natural herb, there is no need for a medical prescription.
Ginkgo Biloba also known as the maidenhair tree, is used by many people to improve memory and slow age-related intellectual decline, but there are not many studies made to prove this. Ginkgo biloba is generally considered safe, but it can cause side effects in interaction with other drugs. Be cautious with this kind of supplements and consult a doctor before taking them.
Mushroom Reishi Coffee – regular black coffee mixed with powdered medicinal mushrooms. This drink has a high level of antioxidants and other compounds that may enhance focus and thinking capabilities. Studies have suggested they’re great for lowering anxiety and stress.
Vitamin B6 a lot of studies have shown that a lower level of B6 causes cognitive decline. B6 helps the body to produce serotonin – the hormone of happiness – and helps the body cope with stress. Vitamin B6 also helps with melatonin production, which is important in helping regulate the internal clock and sleep.
Ashwagandha known as “Indian Winter cherry” or “Indian Ginseng” helps reduce the production of cortisol, the stress hormone. While something like magnesium is proven to help relax muscles, studies show that the extract of this plant promotes a youthful state of physical and mental health and expands happiness.
Golden Coffee – regular black coffee with turmeric – perfect for those who need help with focus and recall. Turmeric is generally good for circulation, so that improved oxygenation is benefic for the brain.
Bacopa monnieri known as Waterhyssop is an herb used to boost memory and cognitive performance in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Modern studies show that this plant can improve information retention, making it one of the most popular mood enhancers.
I mentioned above more natural options of nootropics because they usually don’t have a lot of sides effect, unlike the synthetics ones. Before starting to take this kind of supplements please talk to your doctor. Also, you should remember:
Using nootropics regularly may reduce the potency of their effect. They shouldn’t be taken by everybody and every day, only on days that you are doing intense work or taking a week off from a nootropic once every month or two to allow your body and brain to “reset.”
While nootropics have a positive effect on your brain, a healthy lifestyle and a good diet have a much better effect on your brain and also may increase your stress resilience too.
What do you think ladies, do you believe in supplements that can give mental clarity, laser-sharp focus, and long-lasting energy? For me, it sounds like the stuff of science fiction movies, but you never know.
‘Till next time stay brave & confident!
