In this day and age, if you want to stay ahead of your competition, you need to have the ability to think better and faster. You need to have a vigilant brain, better focus, higher concentration and extended spans of attention. If you feel like you can’t maintain your focus on your tasks or can’t work efficiently, we have the solution for you. The solution is called ‘Nootropics‘ or ‘Smart Drugs‘. These Smart Drugs are the outcome of research in the field of neurosciences being carried out since the 1960s.
Nootropics are natural compounds that help enhance the cognitive abilities of the brain including memory formation and recall, learning & logical reasoning, creative thinking, concentration, motivation & mental energy and mood. These are known to have a positive effect on the memory. Some are used for medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. They can also help students to absorb and memorize more information. Just like Coffee, these smart drugs can improve the attention and focus too, but with less side-effects than caffeine.
Types of Nootropics
There are several different types of Nootropics. These include Racetams, Ampakines, Choline & Acetylcholine Intermediates, Synthetic B-Vitamin Derived, Natural, Peptide based and Smart Drugs. All of these types have different methods of action. You can select any of these types or a combination of these based on your desired results.
To be able to comprehend how they function, it is important to know about the different neuronal systems that exist within the brain. The neuronal systems are composed of neurotransmitters and the receptors. Neurons are the basic building structures of the neuronal systems. Nerve signals are sent out from one neuron to another through the Neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters can either be excitatory or inhibitory. The excitatory neurotransmitters are the ones that broadcast a message to other neurons while the inhibitory neurotransmitters are the ones that keep the messages from being sent or received. Based on these received messages, the neurotransmitters then bind with the receptor sites on nerve synapses. There are a myriad of different neuronal systems in the brain. The different types of smart drugs (discussed above) interact with the different neuronal systems and help boost the efficiency of these systems leading to improved cognitive functions.
