Nootropic drugs are any pharmacological compounds which can improve cognitive functions by interacting with natural brain chemistry. They can be derived from natural sources, or be comprised of synthetic variations of those sources created in a lab. Nootropic drugs primarily work by manufacturing, potentiating, or restricting the amounts of natural neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones. They can have either stimulating or depressive effects, raising or lowering blood pressure as needed.
Nootropic drugs often interact with the growth, health, repair, and communication of neurons and synapses. Through this action, they are able to enhance memory, lift mood, and heighten learning abilities. These drugs can also restore imbalance and fight symptoms of many cognitive disorders, such as ADHD or even Alzheimer’s disease. Nootropic agents offer a broad range of user benefits, promoting fluid intelligence and social confidence with applications for school, business, and home.
