Nootropic supplements work to increase your brain's mental functions, such as memory, creativity, motivation, and attention. Browse our collection of organic, plant based and natural nootropics to boost your productivity.
Nootropics are simply substances that enhance learning and memory while protecting the brain. There are various different substances that act as nootropics and help to enhance mental skills. These include herbs, minerals, fatty acids, vitamins and amino acids. Natural nootropic supplements are usually made from plant extracts, amino acids and other naturally-sourced nutrients.
Natural nootropics have been proven to provide some level of cognitive or mental enhancement. Nootropics can help to support an increase in oxygen flow and blood circulation to the brain, which in general is a major benefit for brain health. Plant based nootropic supplements are particularly effective when taken alongside other rituals, such as improving the quality of your sleep, lowering your stress levels and improving your diet.
There are a wide range of plant based nootropic supplements, so the time taken for them to have an effect will very much depend on the specific product in question. Some natural nootropics can take minutes to have an effect, while others will need to be consumed consistently over a matter of weeks in order to lead to beneficial results. The time it takes for organic nootropics to work will also depend upon factors like your body weight and brain chemistry.
Unlike other supplements, nootropics don’t directly stimulate weight loss. However, they can help to improve your mood, focus and motivation which, in turn, will help you to succeed on your diet. In addition, natural nootropic supplements can also help improve sleep quality and reduce stress which, like your cognitive performance, also ties in with weight loss.
Certain nootropic ingredients - such as ginkgo biloba and L-Theanine - have been known to cause problems for pregnant women, so should definitely be avoided as they may not be safe for use during pregnancy or when breastfeeding. Before taking any adaptogens or nootropic supplements during pregnancy, you should discuss this with your GP or midwife.
