Can Nootropics Really Make You More Productive?


If you feel like you could benefit from better focus and being more productive at work, at home, or even in your studies, did you know that there are supplements out there that can do just that and more? Nootropics have been at forefront of brain-boosting nutrients for quite some time now, but if you’ve never heard of them let’s take a look at just how effective they can be.

Nootropics at a glance

Substances classed as nootropics can be synthetic or all-natural and can be ingested to boost brain function for better learning skills, improved memory, faster cognitive function and more. These are often known as ‘smart drugs’ and typically fall into three categories, prescription drugs, dietary supplements and synthetic compounds. As a result of this, they can be either bought over the counter or prescribed.

When you take a nootropic supplement you will see an increase in:

  • Memory
  • Focus
  • Attention
  • Motivation
  • Alertness
  • Stress resistance
  • Balanced moods
  • Multitasking

Nootropics can help in any area where you want to improve cognitive function, so aside from assistance in the obvious areas of work and study, you could even use them to improve your gaming abilities, your performance at the gym and even when undertaking art projects.

While these compounds will typically perform better for those who are medically deficient in certain nutrients (such as people suffering from ADHD), there is evidence to support the fact that healthy individuals have also seen an improvement overall in the areas mentioned above.

When to take nootropics

If you have a specific need in mind, such as a project you need extra energy to complete, you can take a nootropic supplement an hour or two in advance for optimum performance. When it comes to exercise however, it can be better to take your supplement a little closer to your training session. If you want improved function in general, it will be better to take nootropics in the morning. They are safe to be used daily and whatever form they come in (liquid, powder, or tablet), it is advised to take them with food.

Of course, when buying and ingesting any supplement, you should do your research for reputability and always get advice from a healthcare professional. When you choose a provider like SOMA Analytics, you can be sure that the supplements you buy are derived from plants and natural resources only.

Can nootropics really make you more productive?

Have you ever reached for coffee or green tea when in a slump and suddenly felt the buzz and worked better? Well, you technically used a nootropic to increase your productivity! Caffeine is a natural stimulant and falls into the category of nootropic, so if this works for you, a similar natural supplement could perform even better. Right now, the top natural supplements for better productivity are Ginseng, Bacopa Monnieri, rosenroot, Ginkgo Biloba and Piracetam, but there are many companies out there offering supplement blends that aim to maximise the worthwhile effects.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
