Popular Nootropics

We see popular nootropics as being what most people would define “classic” nootropics that carry little to no tolerance (with some exceptions such as Phenibut). Most of the compounds under this category would be suitable for frequent use.

Popular Stimulants

As a general rule of thumb we see compounds listed under “popular stimulants” as more short term cognitive enhancers that carry tolerance and should be used sparingly (if at all). Typically stimulants raise levels of certain neurotransmitters such as adrenaline and dopamine which can provide a short term “boost”.

Nootropic Formulas

 We conduct reviews of popular nootropic formulas. Formulas are typically recommended for absolute newcomers who don’t wish to experiment personally and want an “out of the box” solution. Most formulas address multiple aspects of cognitive function rather than one specific area.

Nutrient Based Nootropics

We typically categorize nootropics that occur naturally in foods or are produced endogenously as “nutrient based nootropics”.

G
Sam
SAM-e

Lesser Known Nootropics

Typically nootropics which we’d class as “research” chemicals that haven’t made it into the mainstream yet, usually due to lack of human trials. Compounds listed here include research based ampakines and novel compounds such as IDRA-21.
