Natural Nootropics: Remedies for the Mind and Body

Nootropics are a class of substances that aid in brain performance and are

available as either prescription medications or as natural supplements.

Nootropics are sometimes referred to as “cognition enhancers” or “memory-

enhancing substances.”

Some of the most common prescription medications that are considered

to be nootropics have stimulant effects. These medications are commonly

prescribed to counteract the symptoms of medical conditions such as

narcolepsy, ADHD, or Alzheimer’s disease. Ritalin and Adderall are often

prescribed for patients with ADHD to aid in strengthening

concentration, yet have been linked to harsh side effects such as

seizures, hallucinations, heart complications, and in rare cases sudden

death, according to a 2012 article published in the journal Brain and


Other common side effects of prescription nootropics:

- High blood pressure

- Increased heart rate

- Insomnia

- Vision complications

- Potentially addictive

Natural nootropics in food:

There are a variety of foods which contain naturally occurring compounds

often used in nootropics, such as Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Flavonoids,

which have been found to improve brain health and function in various

studies. Foods high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids include nuts, seeds, fish, and

plant oils. Foods high in Flavonoids include fruits, vegetables, grains, bark,

roots, stems, flowers, tea and wine. Health experts caution that even if

people eat foods that contain these nutrients, their benefits are not

noticeable until consumed for long periods of time. L-theanine is another

popular nootropic—an amino acid that naturally occurs in black and green

teas. A study published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition found

that l-theanine increased alpha waves in the brain based on EEG results. This

indicates that l-theanine relaxes the mind without inducing drowsiness.

Nootropics supplements:

There are also a variety of nootropic supplements which contain food-derived

ingredients or other compounds. When consumed as a gummi, you are able

to get high bioavailability of the compound, concentrated into one bite, all

with convenience and good taste.

Popular Gummi Nootropics Supplements:

- Chaga—A mushroom with adaptogenic properties which can help the

body resist fatigue, anxiety, and stress-related depression

- Reishi—A mushroom which has been shown to boost the immune

system as well as aid in reducing fatigue and depression

- 5HTP—Also known as 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid

that your body naturally produces, and it works in the brain and central

nervous system by increasing the production of serotonin. Low

serotonin levels are associated with depression, anxiety, sleep disorders,

and a variety of other health problems. It can be produced as a

supplement from the seeds of an African plant.

- Rhodiola rosea—This is a perennial flowering plant in the family

Crassulaceae and grows naturally in wild Arctic regions across Europe,

Asia, and North America. Similar to Chaga, the roots of this plant are

considered to be adaptogens—meaning they can help the body adapt

to the impacts of stress. It has been used throughout history to treat

anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
