You may recall an early 2018 article titled “In with the Nootropics.” Here, we learned that nootropics are a class of cognition-enhancing supplements used to boost concentration and improve memory. Typically referred to as “smart drugs,” and based off of the Greek words “nous” and “trepein,” which translates loosely to “mind bender,” these supplements are showing optimal benefits for the brain (cosmicnovo).
