Nootropics Brain Pills

Nootropics is the term used as an umbrella over a class of nutritional substances that are a mix of manmade chemicals and nutritional supplements that enhance the cognitive benefits to the brain. To be classified as a nootropic, the substance must first meet 5 specific criteria as set forth by Dr. Corneliu E. Giugea who is the man who named the class of supplements.

Here are the 5 criteria as set forth by Dr. Corneliu E. Giugea:

  • Enhance the memory and the ability to learn.
  • Help the human brain in function even under disruptive conditions like low oxygen (hypoxia) or electroconvulsive shock.
  • Protect the brain from chemicals such as anticholinergic drugs and the use of barbiturates.
  • Improve and increase the ability of the neuronal firing control in both the cortical and the sub-cortical areas of the brain.
  • Have no known side effects and be non-toxic.

Typically, nootropic supplements are used as a cognitive enhancer. They are believed to improve energy, focus and memory function in the brain. Nootropics may range from everyday substances such as caffeine (morning coffee anyone?) to Omega 3s.
