Not all nootropics are created equally. And different people need a different stack of nootropics for a superior brain function. Look at it as a legal enhancement of your mental capacity. When composed correctly, it’s like superpowers of your brain.
What are nootropics and where they came from?
Nootropics are cognitive enhancers that are effective and legal. Generally, when composed correctly and taken responsible they are safe.
Nootropics are not medication, they are mostly synthetic supplements designed for specific mental effects. However, some herbs and herbal formulations can be nootropics on their own, or they can participate in “stacking” of nootropics based on individual needs and preferences.
We always evaluate your individual purposes and outcomes before deciding what “stack” you need. Motivation, concentration, and increased cognitive functioning are examples of the goals, but we always need to take into consideration your physical condition and health issues.
Why might you want to consider nootropic?
Some examples are:
- If you have a high-pressure task in front of you and you want to give it your best
- If you need a boost in your social performance, such as effective networking, giving a speech, or preparing for an interview
- If you need to boost your memory and concentration
- If your workouts leave you mentally exhausted
- For deeper sleep
You can create a tolerance to certain nootropics, and they might stop working as effectively. There are working in your body for a certain, and you need to take more to maintain that effect. Some of them also can cause dependency, so you have to be careful and monitor your reactions over time.
This is why I always suggest creating your “stack” carefully. Some of the nootropics boost your body’s ability to start generating neurotransmitters, and some are mimicking neurotransmitters.
There are no right or wrong answers, and you can do both simultaneously. You have to be creative in the way you take, combine, and rotate them.
One of the easy to try examples is combining coffee with L-theanine. It is an amino acid and is found in green tea.
Coffee is an excellent nootropic by itself but can give you jitters, anxiety, and uneven energy distribution. If you add 100mg of l-theanine to it, it balances these effect as theanine is a relaxant, and for some reason, they are perfectly working in synergy.
Another excellent nootropic I found is Focus DL (DL phenylalanine) – an excellent way to focus and concentrate. And it will be much more effective if custom stacked with other supplements for your individual needs.
