What Are Nootropics, AKA Smart Drugs?

Nootropics—also known as smart drugs—are brain boosters meant to improve cognitive function and cognitive performance in the brains of healthy people. The term nootropic encompasses a wide range of supplements that are specially formulated to address a range of concerns, from enhancing memory to improving your focus.

They can be either natural or synthetic. An example of some well known, naturally occurring nootropics are ginseng and ginkgo biloba. Studies suggest that these all-natural herbal supplements can help boost brain function by increasing blood flow and oxygen delivery to the brain.

In addition to herbal sources, there are several B vitamin formulations that have brain boosting properties, including B6, B9 and B12.

Amino acids and essential fatty acids are also considered valuable for their nootropic properties, acting as powerful neurotransmitters in the brain, while also providing much needed nervous system support. For instance, taurine supplements encourage new brain cell growth and can also help focus a distracted mind.

Omega-3 fatty acid supplements have also been shown to be powerful cognitive enhancers that can make it easier to learn new things, while also helping support mood and enhancing brain function.

Beyond these individual formulations that rely on a single ingredient to provide brain-boosting power, there are a range of nootropic stacks, which blend the individual ingredients together to create supplements that take advantage of multiple nootropic-rich ingredients (by “stacking” them together). These unique supplements can address a singular concern or multiple cognitive functions all at once, like improving memory and enhancing focus.

Here are a few of the supplement options Pharmaca offers, that can help naturally boost your brain health and improve cognitive function, to maximize nootropic effects.
