What are Nootropics, Smart Drugs, and Cognitive Enhancers?

Whether you're a college student hoping to ace your exams, a busy professional striving for a promotion, a regular person trying to get a leg up, or an older adult concerned about dementia, the idea of popping a pill that boosts your brainpower might seem pretty appealing. So perhaps it's not surprising that the use of nootropics -- aka cognitive enhancers or smart drugs -- is on the rise.

The term "nootropics" first referred to chemicals that meet very specific criteria. But now it's used to refer to any natural or synthetic substance that may have a positive impact on mental skills, the brain, cognitive abilities or related effects. In general, nootropics like Bright Brain include proven natural compounds or proven synthetic compounds that are successfully proven nootropic compounds. They are combined together in specific formulations to synergize and achieve the lab proven results our competitors can only dream of.

    Absolute Focus is a daily nootropic supplement that promotes mental performance, learning, focus, alertness, cognitive improvement, logical reasoning, memory recall, overall energy and more.

    Frequently referred to as the "smart pill" or "limitless pill" due to its incredible results and industry-leading performance.

So What Do Nootropics Do?

Nootropics. You might have heard of them. The “limitless pill” that keeps Billionaires rich. The ‘smart drugs’ that students are taking to help boost their hyperfocus. The cognitive enhancers that give corporate executives an advantage. All very exciting. But as always, the media is way behind the curve and often report inaccurately on what nootropics are or do.

Yes, for the past few decades, cognitive enhancers were largely sketchy substances that people used to grasp at a short term edge at the expense of their health and well being. But the days of taking prescription pills to pull an all-nighter are so 2010. The better, safer path isn’t with these stimulants but with nootropics. Nootropics consist of dietary supplements and substances which enhance your cognition, in particular when it comes to motivation, creativity, memory, and other executive functions. They play an important role in supporting memory and promoting optimal brain function. 

These days, nootropics are beginning to take their rightful place as a particularly powerful tool in the Neurohacker’s toolbox. After all, biochemistry is deeply foundational to neural function. Whether you are trying to fix the damage that is done to your nervous system by a stressful and toxic environment or support and enhance your neural functioning, getting the chemistry right is table-stakes. With companies like Bright Brain leading the way, the industry is taken a whole new direction towards results and success.


How Do Nootropics work in the brain and body?

The neural system is complex. Big companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars trying to separate the effects of just a single molecule from placebo – and nootropics invariably show up as “stacks” of many different ingredients. That kind of complex, multi pathway input requires a different methodology to understand not only what ingredients are used, but how they work together, get delivered to the brain, and react in your body.

Thanks to the efforts of a number of remarkable scientists, researchers and companies like Bright Brain we are beginning to put together a “whole systems” model of how all the different parts of the human brain work together and how they mesh with the complex regulatory structures of the body. As more and more research gets completed, we continue to actually deliver on the promise of smart drugs that can help people in so many different ways. Each ingredient is different and we like to inform our customers what they do!

Do Nootropics, Smart Drugs & Cognitive Enhancers Actually Work?

Whether you're a college student hoping to ace your exams, a busy professional striving for a promotion, or an older adult concerned about dementia, the idea of popping a pill that boosts your brainpower might seem pretty appealing. So perhaps it's not surprising that the use of nootropics -- aka cognitive enhancers or smart drugs -- is on the rise. This is because people are seeing actual results!

Chris D'Adamo, PhD, director of research and education at the University of Maryland’s Center for Integrative Medicine thinks nootropics can give you a mental edge. He stated "Most people seeking to optimize cognitive function would be better off focusing on getting enough sleep, eating a nutrient-dense diet, and managing their stress," he says. But once you have those basics down, the right nootropics might serve as a bonus, helping you think more clearly and sharply or reduce your chances of cognitive decline as you age."
