Are Nootropics safe?
The United States Food and Drug Administration is one of these agencies. It treats many nootropics as a dietary supplement. Why? Because, while the concept of nootropics may be new to the mass market, the ingredients in most nootropic formulations have been around for a long time.
Do Nootropics Actually Work?
Ultimately, different nootropics work in different ways to enhance cognitive performance. While some only provide short term boosts to focus and mental energy, others have been shown to deliver long-lasting effects on memory, brain health and overall cognition. Additionally, there are adaptogens, which assist the body in adapting to stress, reducing anxiety, improving mood, and even helping you sleep better.
While some nootropics are relatively new and lack research, others have been around for thousands of years and have been scientifically proven to support cognitive performance!
