Smart drugs to the rescue? Not so fast.
Nootropics have dramatically increased in popularity.
And while many people at first think it’s another one of those pseudoscientific cults…
Top researchers are increasingly proving that these all-natural ‘smart drugs’ can significantly help increase cognitive function, attention spans, verbal fluency, creativity and mood…
Without putting your health on the line like some ADHD meds.
However, as I was testing the best-selling nootropics on Amazon and those that kept spamming me on Facebook, I found that:
Most nootropics are just disguised caffeine pills strong enough to give an elephant a heart murmur
The reality was that most formulas were either using ingredients with no studies to back their claims, the ingredients weren’t properly dosed to have any significant effect or the formulas simply weren’t strong enough, meaning it would take weeks of me taking them before experiencing even a mild effect.
And, when I personally met with the founders of some of the leading companies, I couldn't have been more disappointed.
Many of them were using the "kitchen sink" approach, trying to include every ingredient in their formulas, just to say it included them.
In the end, I was either left with no effect whatsoever, or irritating jitters followed by a crash that would knock me out for the rest of the day.
But instead of giving up, my science-nerd mind got to work.
