3 Nootropics Everyone Should Know About

1. Piracetam - Piracetam is probably one of the best-known nootropics within the nootropic community, however, if you’re new to the scene, you may never have heard about it. Piracetam is one of the oldest nootropics available, and has formed an entire family of other nootropic drugs with similar methods of actions. This family is called the “Racetam” family and consists of a dozen or so other chemicals. Piracetam has been proven non-toxic and shown to effectively increase cognition in mentally healthy individuals.

2. CDPCholine -
Acetylcholine is one of the brain’s primary neurotransmitters. If your brain is running low on Choline, you’re simply not going to be functioning well. A lot of different nootropics are based around choline, whether they’re choine supplements (adding to the amount of choline available) or affecting the interactions of choline in the brain. Some nootropics focus on preventing the breakdown of choline in the brain, which effectively increases the amount of choline available. CDPCholine is a choline supplement, so it increases the amount of choline available to the brain. It is important to take a choline supplement such as CDPCholine with racetam drugs, since these drugs seem to cause the brain to use up choline at a higher rate. Check out the CDP choline page.

3. Pyritinol –
Pyritinol was developed based around the vitamin B6. Its basically two vitamin B6 joined together. It’s able to easily cross the blood/brain barrier. Pyritinol has direct effects on promoting energy, wakefulness, and concentration. It’s proven safe and effective. Even in large dosages, it is still quite safe.
