What are Nootropics?
Nootropics are compounds that have the ability to enhance the functions of the brain. The word Noop is derived from the Greek word “noos” which means mind and the work trope means to turn. So basically, nootropics turn your mind and increase your cognitive abilities. These are chemically synthetic products that are usually made in laboratories. You need not worry about the side effects of taking nootropics as they have very few or no side effects if taken in the recommended dosages.
You cannot think of replacing minerals or vitamins with nootropics as they are quite essential to your body and they are not found in nootropics. It is mainly to enhance and boost the cognitive functions of the brain.

How do nootropics work?
Nootropics provide a subjective experience. Just because one person responds in a particular manner, it does not mean that the other person would respond similarly. Every nootropic compound affects individuals differently. Just because your friend has a great result in taking a particular type of nootropic it does not mean that you will also get the same results; this is mostly because researchers are unable to figure out the working mechanism of nootropics in our body. All we know is the initial product and the reactions that are produced to it. We have very little or no idea to what is happening in our body.
But don’t panic yet, don’t let the above fact alarm you and consider nootropic is bad for your health. The human body is very complex, and even though we have a lot of technology, there are still many things that are yet to be understood. There are lots of drugs which are sold worldwide, and we never know the mechanism behind it, and thus you don’t have to be worried. Some common nootropics are; noopept, piracetam, and phenylpiracetam.
Are nootropics legal?
Now you might be thinking that nootropics might not be legal as it boosts the cognitive functions of our brain and researchers do not yet know the working mechanisms of nootropics.
Nootropics are legal in many countries, and you would not be arrested or given a ticket if a police officer sees you taking nootropics. But at the same time, you need to know that many FDA does not approve of nootropics.
