Top 5 Powerful Benefits Of Taking Nootropic Supplements

As busy professionals, we’re always trying to find the best ways to improve efficiency in our lives and perform better. Eating healthily, exercising regularly, and meditating are some surefire ways to do this, but sometimes you need that extra kick.

Enter Nootropics.

Nootropics are a safe and natural way to boost brain function and productivity without the jitters you get from reaching for your 4th cup of coffee at 3 pm. And today I’m going to tell you 5 amazing benefits of adding Nootropic Supplements to your diet.

  1. Increased Focus and Concentration

Your brain is a powerhouse, burning nearly 20% of your body’s total energy supplies(1), and it works particularly hard when put through high levels of cognitive stress. 

Activities such as preparing for an important presentation at work, revising for exams, or writing a report require high levels of focus and attention. 

By improving the activity of important neurotransmitters in the brain, Nootropic Supplements such as those containing L-Theanine can reduce mental chatter and improve your focus, allowing you to stay on task longer with fewer distractions. This will help you get those important tasks done quicker and keep to strict deadlines, giving you more time to spend on the things you enjoy most.

  1. Nootropic Supplements Can Help With Socialising

Everyone feels anxious from time to time when thrust into an uncomfortable social situation. Whether this be an important meeting with a potential client, going for a job interview, or even attending a party where you don’t know many people. Nootropic Supplements can help with this, by calming the nervous system and reducing stress, leading to a clearer mind and better self-confidence.

Look for ingredients such as Lion’s Mane Mushroom which can improve secretion of Nerve Growth Factor, an important molecule that increases blood flow to the brain and curbs inflammation, helping to reduce social nervousness(2).

  1. Boost To Your Energy 

Whilst we’re all guilty of reaching for that 3rd, 4th, or even 5th cup of coffee to give us a much-needed energy boost, caffeine brings with it a string of unpleasant side effects such as jitters, anxiety, and headaches.

Nootropics provide a clean energy source by increasing blood flow to the brain(3). This gives you a natural surge in energy to get that spreadsheet done, presentation written, or even lift heavier weights at the gym – that’s right, Nootropics can even be used as a pre-workout supplement! 

  1. Improved Sleep And Reduced Stress 

Not only is stress one of the main contributing factors to many life-threatening diseases and illnesses(4), but it also decreases your productivity and performance. One way stress does this is by disturbing your sleep – the most important way the body and brain can heal and recover. Stress activates your fight or flight response, increasing your blood pressure and heart rate – not something that is very helpful when you’re trying to nod off to your 8 hours of rejuvenating sleep.

Fortunately, Nootropics are bio-regulators, meaning they naturally help your body adapt to stress. By relaxing your brain and balancing cortisol levels in the body, you will find it easier to unwind before bed to get that much needed restorative sleep.  Active ingredients such as Zinc can calm the mind allowing you to destress. This will help you get a deeper sleep so you wake with a clearer mind, more energy, and have a much more productive day.

  1. Optimise Brain Health And Prevent Cognitive Decline

Some Nootropics can stimulate the production of Nerve Growth Factor, an important molecule in the brain for regeneration and growth of brain cells. This is super important for maintaining cognitive function and preventing decline. Nootropic supplements such as Zinc can also help fight off free radicals, reducing cell damage in the brain and optimising brain health and function.

Pre-clinical studies have even shown Lion’s Mane Mushroom may be useful in preventing Alzheimer’s and Dementia by reducing inflammation in the brain and improving memory(5, 6).

So, Which Nootropic Supplements Should You Add To Your Diet?

Look for active ingredients such as Lion’s Mane Mushroom, Ginko Biloba, Zinc, and L-Theanine to give you all these amazing benefits. These Nootropics are highly effective when taken by themselves but they become even more powerful when combined – this is called a Nootropic Stack.

We’ve made it easy by developing the UK’s first Nootropic Gummy range tailored for people wanting to perform better and think clearer.
