Whether you’re cramming for an important exam or just feeling the brain strain of the back to school rush, nootropics can help you remember better and think more clearly. Nootropics (pronounced noh-oh-troh-piks) are a category of substances that are commonly referred to as “smart drugs” for enhancing cognition and memory and facilitating learning. Nootropics work to boost brain neurochemicals – neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones – by improving the brain’s oxygen supply and stimulating nerve growth. This unique group of memory and learning-enhancing substances also protect the brain against physical and chemical injury, including oxidation.
Some of the most potent and researched nootropics include:
Docosahexanoic acid (DHA) – Makes up 15-20 percent of the brain’s cerebral cortex! Low levels of DHA are linked to memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease while adequate levels restore cognitive abilities; improve rate of learning; reduce mental decline and prevent brain degeneration.
Vinpocetine – Increases blood flow to brain; reduces inflammation; protects central nervous system against degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Many studies have also concluded that vinpocetine has an exceptional ability to reverse the signs of brain, skin and nerve aging.
Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ) – Vitamin-like compound, powerful antioxidant and nerve growth factor stimulant; improves memory and cognitive functions; reverses cognitive impairment caused by chronic oxidative stress; protects brain and nerve cells; reduces stroke.
Bacopa Monnieri Extract – A recent study published in the journal Aging (March 2016) shows that this herbal extract exerts “a neuroprotective effect against mental diseases such as depression, anxiety and Alzheimer’s disease.” The researchers found that Bacopa monnieri extract reduced learning deficits; improved long-term spatial memory; and reduced brain plaque.
Alpha GPC (L-alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine) – recently developed cognitive enhancer involved in the release of free choline; helps repair brain cell membranes and counteract cognitive impairment related to dementia, brain injuries and stroke.
