In with the Nootropics

In with the Nootropics

If you’ve seen the movie Limitless, then you have a good idea of what nootropics can do. No, nootropics will not give you superhuman powers, but there is a good chance they will improve your cognitive function, including your creativity and memory. Makers Nutrition manufactures a variety of nootropics for many of our clients, and we expect that variety to only rise in 2018.

What are they?

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 combined translate loosely to “mind bender,” these supplements are showing optimal benefits to the brain (cosmicnovo).

How do they work?

Increasing communication between neurons, nootropics help to balance neurotransmitter levels. They can even help improve energy metabolism in neurons, supporting neuroplasticity, promoting the growth of new neurons and synapses (nootriment). These supplements target different systems in the brain, improving cognitive function in different ways: From the glutamatergic system, which is responsible for the brain’s learning and memory abilities, to the dopaminergic and serotonergic systems, which control our happiness levels (trendsupplements).

Who, what, and how much?

Typically taken by college students looking to relax and enhance cognition during exam time, nootropics are setting the stage for 2018, soaring upward throughout international markets (cosmicnovo). Investors are cognizant of these monetarily promising supplements, betting big bucks “that the masses will be gobbling up nootropics in 2018. According to Research and Markets, brain health was a 2.3 billion dollar business in 2015, and is projected to be worth $11.6 billion by 2024” (wellandgood).

Nootropics are mainly natural ingredients such as Huperzine A, a naturally occurring alkaloid found in firmoss, which has been tested for its efficacy in terms of neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease (cosmicnovo). Based on studies done and research in progress, the potential is boundless to carry nootropics beyond their preliminary target of college students who are under high pressure.
