"Guide to the
Best Nootropics and
Brain Enhancement Formulas"
Nootropics, often referred to as “smart drugs,” are substances that augment such cognitive functions as memory, intelligence and focus.
These natural medicine supplements are highly functional foods that can help individuals to maximize their brain potential. The term “nootropics” was introduced by Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea, a Romanian psychologist and chemist, more than 50 years ago. The meaning of “nootropic” combines two Greek words: “nous” (mind) and “trepein” (to bend or turn). Dr. Giurgea stated that nootropics had the capacity to accomplish the following:
- Improve learning and memory;
- Sharpen mental resistance to environmental disruption of learned behaviors;
- Shield the brain from both chemical and physical harm while strengthening mental control mechanisms;
- Accomplish desired effects of manufactured psychotropic pharmaceuticals without causing side effects like excessive motor stimulation or strong sedation.
