SAN DIEGO, Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Nootropics is a class of compounds that improve cognition, sometimes
The global nootropics market is predicted to reach over USD 6 billion by 2024. This clearly shows an expanding usage of nootropics and an ever increasing demand for such brain health supplements. Students, entrepreneurs, investment bankers, scientists, and artists all use nootropics in order to gain competitive mental edge. Silicon Valley is certainly the most developed market for nootropics as there is a high prevalence of "smart pills" users, but the practice appears to be widespread elsewhere too.
For example, the prestigious scientific journal Nature conducted an online pool of its readers about their use of prescription drugs, such as Ritalin and Provigil for neuroenhancement. They found that 20% of the 1400 self-selected readers indicated that had used these drugs for non-medical reasons to stimulate their focus, concentration or memory.
Students are also increasingly taking nootropic supplements instead of Red Bull or triple espressos. A recent survey found that 15% of University of Oxford students take a "study drug" Modafinil to stay competitive and productive. The so-called "study drug", which is a prescription drug used to treat excessive sleeping, has been recently found to have significant cognitive benefits in healthy non-sleep deprived individuals. Such findings have clear practical applications for anyone looking to improve their cognitive functions. The prevalence of nootropic supplements and prescription drugs users among the students in the US universities is very similar to that found in the UK. A 2014 study found that 18% of students from Ivy League colleges reported taking "smart drugs" for academic purposes at least once in their studies.
A lot of different terms, such as "smart pills", neuroenhancers, cognitive-enhancing substances, brain-enhancing drugs, and "brain steroids" have been recently used to describe nootropics and there is definitely a lot talk about the cognitive benefits that they provide.
The Internet is buzzing about these brain enhancing drugs as evidenced by growing media coverage in various media outlines such as BBC News, popular magazines like Men's Health as well as forums. With 150k subscribers, nootropics is definitely a "hot" topic among the brain hackers that gather on the reddit nootropics forum to ask questions, discuss the latest research, and share product reviews, including best sellers for cognitive enhancement.
Growing nootropics market provides healthier alternatives to prescription drugs. Some available through under research umbrella and some are formulations of main stream over the counter supplements. One of which is ThoughtFoods. ThoughtFoods is a reputable nootropics company that was started by Cambridge scientists studying methods to improve cognitive function in 2013. Alongside other big companies like Nootropics Depot, ThoughtFoods is one of the top players on the nootropics market selling the highest quality nootropic compounds and formulas in UK and US. There are a lot of different nootropics that have slightly different benefits, so it is difficult to have the top 5 as it very much depends on your personal needs. That said, some of the most popular research status nootropics are piracetam, aniracetam, adrafinil and tianeptine.
Piracetam is the original and well-researched nootropic, which is used to boost memory, improve focus, enhance learning, heighten immune system and even better one's personality. It is the most popular nootropic, which is believed to have started nootropics craze around the world. Aniracetam is another racetam nootropic with excellent creativity enhancing properties. Other benefits following the use of Aniracetam include enhanced memory and reduced anxiety. Adrafinil is a synthetic nootropic that belongs to the eugeroic family and is often used as an excellent alternative to the aforementioned Modafinil. It promotes alertness and wakefulness so it is a great nootropic for anyone who requires a lot of mental energy. Tianeptine is a popular nootropic compound to reduce anxiety and improve mood.
ThoughtFoods continues to be at the forefront of innovation when it comes to developing a superbly effective nootropic stacks, formulas and even drinks. One of such products is called iQuzil - the learning and productivity accelerator, which helps to improve a range of cognitive processes such as learning, memory and focus. These benefits make it an excellent choice for students. Just like another popular nootropic supplement Alpha Brain by Onnit, iQuzil is aimed at healthy individuals looking to improve their cognitive functions. iQuzil has received a lot of positive reviews and feedback.
Additionally, since the release of iQuzil more similar type of nootropic supplements have been developed by other companies. For instance, Neurohacker Collective designed their Qualia formula nootropics for focus, clarity and memory.
However, one nootropic innovation that was lacking until very recently is having all of the effective nootropics in one "smart" drink. Not long ago, iQtropics company launched a new generation nootropic smart drink called iQtonic – Think in a Drink. iQtropics CEO Kestutis Rasimavicius has a clear vision of iQtonic starting a new revolution of replacing the traditional energy drinks and becoming a convenient drink for everyone.
Thanks to their wide ranging cognitive enhancing properties, nootropics are spreading across all sectors of society and may soon even become as common as coffee. This means that people that are not using them will be left behind.
