“Nootropics can help Improve many different aspects of your day to day life: “
- Do you suffer from ‘Brain Fog’?
- Maybe you find it hard to concentrate at work.
- You could be a student who needs to study hard for your examinations, or a bodybuilder, athlete, or sportsperson who finds that your performance or results dip sometimes when you are tired or distracted.
- As you start to get that little bit older, your memory can dip somewhat.
- Going further, many of us suffer from anxiety and the effects of daily stress.
Who ever you are, whatever you are doing, we can all do with some help sometimes.
” There are nootropic products that boost your memory and focus, others that help reduce anxiety, help improve mental energy, creativity or boost your sleep.”
This list of the best natural nootropics offers something for everyone, From the newest, state of the art advanced formulas, to ones that are more budget friendly.
My name Is Paul Gardner, I am the owner, editor and lead researcher for Brain Supplement Expert.
I am obsessed with and have been studying nootropics for over 5 years.
I have spent many hours reading details of clinical studies, and have researched the natural minerals, vitamins and herbal extracts that go to make up these amazing products.
I have also personally taken and experienced the effects of most of the nootropics that I have reviewed on this website.
The nootropics featured on this list have all been carefully researched and tried by me personally, and I can guarantee you that they are the best nootropics available today.
As I Explained On My Introduction Page:
1. My findings and recommendations are based on my own research and personal experiences. What works for me may not necessarily work for everybody, so you might have to test one or two out before you find the one thats right for you.
2. It can take a week -10 days before you start to feel the effects of any supplement, so its important to give a product sufficient time to get to work.
3. If you are on any long term medication or have any ongoing medical conditions its always best to speak to your doctor before taking these or in fact any supplement.
How I Review Nootropics
I always try and follow the same procedure if and when I find a nootropic that I want to review personally.
The first think I do is research the ingredients in the formula, this involves looking on sites like webmd, drugs[dot]com, and examine[dot]com.
These sites are excellent resource pages where you can look up and read details on ingredients, including any clinical studies that have been carried out on them.
Thanks to my research over the past 5 years, I do now have a huge database of information on ingredients etc, which has made this stage a bit easier for me, but from time to time, I still come up against new ingredients, and to be honest I love the research.
Once I am happy and decide to give it a try, I try to contact the manufacturer who sometimes kindly send me a sample to evaluate, but mostly I buy a months supply.
I always stop taking any other nootropics and other supplements for 5 days before I start to take any new product as this allows my body to clear any residue of any nutrients and ingredients used in other products.
( If I didn’t do this, I wouldn’t know if the effects were caused by the new product or those that were still carrying over from the old one.)
I always try to take any nootropic for 3-4 weeks when reviewing its effects.
What Sort Of Things I Look For When Reviewing A Nootropic
- The first thing is how do i feel after taking it? – any after taste etc
- Any side effects – headaches, nausea etc?
- Has my focus and concentration improved?
- Do I have increased mental energy?
- Do I sleep ok?
- What about distractions – Do I get distracted easily?
- Can I carry out a number of tasks at once?
- How do I cope with stressful situations?
- Can I relax ok when not at work?
After the test period is up, I then write down and compare the results and findings with other products.
Its a quite easy process, it doesn’t take super intelligence to carry this out, but it certainly works and I find it an effective way of comparing nootropic products.
Remember – I am not a doctor and have no medical qualifications. I am not biased towards any particular product, although I do have my favourites.
I have developed a deep personal interest in nootropics over the past 5 years and really enjoy studying and testing them.
Avoid Proprietary Blends
One thing that I would like to add at this stage is that I would never recommend any product that uses a proprietary blend (also referred to as matrix or complex) in their formula.
These are used by quite a few manufactures who exploit a legal loophole that allows them to group a number of ingredients together in a total combined weight (see image above).
They have to reveal the names of the ingredients but do not have to disclose how much of each particular ingredient is in their formula.
This means that they can use small, virtually trace amounts of certain ingredients, just enough to satisfy the law that they are actually there in the formula, but simply not enough for the ingredient to have any effect or benefit to the end user.
The products listed below are the ones that I personally found to deliver great results.
They all fully disclose their formulas so you know exactly what you are taking and in addition, they all provide lengthy cash back guarantees that assure buyers of a full refund if, after taking as directed, they fail to see any benefits.
