The depletion of your brain function may be caused by a combination of several different factors including stress, poor diet, and disease. Nootropic supplementation may help in compensating for this gradual depletion of brain activity. Your brain requires oxygen for optimal functioning and many nootropics can provide this added oxygen, in turn helping to enhance the general cognitive functions of your brain.
How Nootropics Work
Nootropics essentially contribute to the already existing neurochemicals in your brain (enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, and so on) which play a critical role in the brain’s cognitive function.
Nootropics can also aid in the stimulation of nerve growth while boosting the supply of blood to your brain.
If you are new to the concept of nootropics and wondering where to start, it might be useful and reassuring to know that true nootropics, by definition, are non-toxic and nueroprotective in nature.
Numerous people all over the world consume nootropics on a daily basis. There are rarely any side effects for these compounds. This has been confirmed by people who have been taking nootropics for a long time, and more importantly the scientific community.
Buying the Right Nootropics
Many nootropics can be bought easily and completely legally from the market today. While some are manufactured in laboratories (synthetic), others are made from natural substances. You can find different concentrations of pills and powders being sold online as well.
Perhaps the most widely used nootropics are those within the Racetam Family: Piracetam, Aniracetam, Oxiracetam, Pramiracetam etc. (also called 'King of Nootropics'), and these typically form the base for many of the more advanced nootropic stacks.
Even though the above-mentioned nootropics are quite popular, they are not the only varieties available on the market.
For some people, these smart drugs and supplements might not be able to offer the desired results (cognitive enhancement), due to that individual persons biology, but this does not mean that nootropics have no effect at all. You simply need to look for and experiment with different nootropics to find a suitable replacement in order to get maximum benefits.
Building a Nootropic Stack
You may be surprised to know that there are minimal differences between stacking techniques used by bodybuilders for supplements such as pre-workouts, and biohackers and their nootropic stacking.
In the beginning, you could try a Racetam stack with perhaps a good choline source. It is not mandatory to use choline for stacking but it is helpful in reducing some common and minor side effects, such as headaches. Not to mention, stacking a Racetam with a quality choline source may help to potentiate or increase the effects of the Racetam.
When your body gets accustomed to these brain function enhancing drugs, you could try and build different stacks from there. As a first step though, it is important to learn about the proper usage of nootropics and to get your body comfortable with these supplements.
As with any supplementation, it is always best to consult your physician before beginning a new regimen.
