What is a Nootropic?

Saturday, June 5, 2021 • 1 minute read

The word Nootropics comes from ancient Greek and means ‘Mind’ and ‘a turning’. Nootropics or 'smart drugs' are supplements taken to enhance cognitive performance. They work by elevating cognitive mental functions such as memory, creativity, motivation, and attention. 

Synthetic prescription Nootropics, such as Modafinil, are rising in popularity across the UK. This is causing concern, as these are powerful drugs and should not be taken unless you have a prescription from a doctor. There are much safer more natural nonprescription Nootropics such as caffeine, L-theanine, and Ginkgo biloba which have been shown to boost mental performance. 

Nootropics have gained enormous popularity among a wide section of the population, from university students looking to enhance exam performance, e-gamers, to busy professionals looking to get ahead and to even older adults looking to prevent dementia.

Nuro is passionate about promoting the use of natural, safe, and legal Nootropics to help people achieve their full potential.
