What Are Nootropics?
The desire to be more mentally sharp and astute has existed for hundreds of years, and can be traced back to Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. These days, Nootropics provide us with a window of opportunity into the world of higher brain functioning.
But what are nootropics exactly? In essence, nootropics are substances that are composed of a wide range of natural and artificial compounds which are thought to enhance your cognitive functioning (i.e. they make you more “intelligent”) – this is done by changing you brain’s neurochemistry.
The word “nootropic” was first coined by chemist and psychologist Dr. Corneliu Giurgea in 1972, and derives from the Greek words “nous” (mind) and “trepein” (to turn, to bend). Giurgea defined “nootropics” as substances that are capable of increasing memory, concentration, motivation, intelligence, mood and anything else related to cognition and thought enhancement.
