The Real-World, Simple Definition of Nootropics

Noo-what? Nootropic….don’t worry, no quiz here. But, while you might not need to pronounce or spell it, you might very well want the definition of “nootropic” in order to understand why you may want it.

Nootropics is an umbrella term for a class of chemicals — some naturally-occurring, some manmade — that provide benefits to the human brain.

As a quick FYI…the word nootropic, is actually derived from two Greek words: “nous,” which means mind, and ”tropein,” which means to bend or turn.

The Real-World, Simple Definition of Nootropics

Definition of Nootropic

…a substance (drugs, vitamins, supplements, herbs, etc) that enhances cognitive function, memory, clarity, creativity, energy, motivation, and facilitates learning.

Criteria for Being Considered a Nootropic

Dr. Corneliu Giurgea, the man who coined the term “nootropic”, had five “criteria” that must be met in order for a substance to be considered a nootropic….

  1. Enhance memory and the ability to learn
  2. Help the brain function under disruptive conditions
  3. Protect the brain from chemical and physical assaults
  4. Increase the efficacy of neuronal firing control mechanisms
  5. Possess few or no side effects and be virtually non-toxic.

Whether you have a science background or not, this list is pretty darn impressive.

Even if just one or two of these benefits was possible from a supplement, with no side effects, it would be hard to believe everyone would not be jumping at the chance to use it.

Who Should Use Nootropics

Nootropics have become very popular, for very good reason, on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley over the past few years.

They are just now becoming as popular within mainstream society.

In reality, anyone looking for better mental clarity, energy, and focus will likely benefit from nootropics!

The really good news…they can be used when needed.

On days where you don’t require the top of your game, you don’t need to pop the pretty capsules.  However, on days where you want to be at your best…they are ready and waiting.
