Nootropics and How They Help the Brain Function Better

Nootropics are often referred to as smart drugs.  They are compounds that enhance the functioning of the brain.  They are becoming a quite popular way to give your mind that extra boost.  According to one report, there are up to 25% of students at leading United Kingdom universities taking this prescription smart drug modafinil and California tech start-up employees are also trying it.  It is considered one of the best Nootropics.

Struggling with cognitive performance

There are individuals that are struggling with performing cognitive thinking, so they ordered up to $1000 worth of smart drugs from Europe which is the only place where you could get them without prescription.

Wary of ordering

Anyone should be wary of where they order this drug.  Using a wholesale term like “nootropics” only combine all kinds of ingredients in together.  Theoretically, it can be argued that cocaine and caffeine are both nootropics, but they are of course not equal.  With many methods to boost the functioning of the brain, many of them have considerable risks.  It is most valued to look at nootropics on a case-by-case basis.

Most popular

The three most popular nootropics include:

  • Modafinil (Provigil) – for focus;
  • Armodafinil (Nuvigil) – motivation;
  • Adrafinil – memory.

Many friends began taking modafinil while getting their MBA’s at Wharton.  At that same time, another friend was working at a start-up that later sold for $600 million in value, so you can imagine how busy they were.  They were working in areas where they needed to keep their brain running.

First taking modafinil

When first taking modafinil, many reports that they feel more like themselves than they have in years.  Some take it almost every day in varying doses for years (with a physician’s prescription).  It gave them energy and has changed a life.

Slight risks

There are slight risks (about 5 in a million) of having an immune reaction that is life-threatening to modafinil.  It is the same type of risk that many have with NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and other ibuprofen, so if you know that you do not react well to NSAIDs, speak with your physician before beginning to take modafinil or any other Nootropics.
