NOOTROPICS: WHAT ARE SMART DRUGS??
*substances which boost human cognitive abilities*
Nootropics are substances (either naturally derived or chemically synthesized) which boost human cognitive abilities (the functions and capacities of the brain). Nootropics work by increasing the brain's supply of neurochemicals (neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones), by improving the brain's oxygen supply, or by stimulating nerve growth. With a few notable exceptions, nootropics have very low or no toxicity, making overdose unlikely. Most have few or no side effects, and many nootropics potentiate each other
This pamphlet will attempt to provide you with a description, benefit, and dosage for a majority of 18+ popular Nootropics. Extended information can be found by following the urls on the reverse, or by using applicable research tools.
When you have finished reading this brief and simple document, we hope that you have attained a sense of what nootropics can offer to most individuals.
