Laura says, “a nootropic is anything that really enhances your brain function. Caffeine itself is a nootropic. Cordyceps are a nootropic because they help with mental performance and fighting fatigue. There are a lot of natural ingredients that help your brain, whether it’s boosting brain cells or blood flow to that brain, reducing inflammation. You’ll often hear about a nootropic stack, which is when somebody combines these different ingredients that they create on their own for their own concoction. We’ve taken the guesswork out of it, so this is like your 101. If you’re new to nootropics, our item is a great entry point to really help you unleash that focus and energy.”
