Nootropics: FASTER, STRONGER…SMARTER?

Nootropics boost key elements of cognitive function and improve overall brain health. Extensive research continues to reveal the many benefits nootropics can provide.But what is a nootropic? How can nootropics potentially boost your intelligence? Which ones can you take safely?Dr. Corneliu Giurgea coined the term “nootropic” (from the Greek “nous,” or “mind” and “trepein,” or “to bend”) in the early 1970’s. He worked on one of the first nootropic drugs, piracetam. It showed some real promise in improving memory and protecting the brain from Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Giurgea believed that “Man is not going to wait passively for millions of years before evolution offers him a better brain.” He wanted to synthesize drugs that made a difference right where you are sitting now, not in the distant future.The substances he was looking for were not the usual types of drugs used to alleviate pain or hold a disease in check, or even drugs for improving physical strength. Instead, he searched for substances that made us smarter and better equipped to handle our fast-paced world.
The Search for Nootropics that WorkOf course the search for these types of substances goes much farther back than the 1970’s. The ancient Indian health system of Ayurveda includes many herbs that improve mood and memory. The Chinese—and later Japanese—discovered the mind-clarifying action of green tea over a thousand years ago, and many native cultures have used (and still do) a plethora of plants to improve cognition and memory.But the West was slow to see the benefits of these substances. It took another 20 years after Dr. Giurgea’s discoveries for nootropics to catch the popular imagination. Dr. Dean Ward and John Morgenthaler’s groundbreaking book, “Smart Drugs & Nutrients,” was published in 1991, and soon students, novelty seekers, and the anti-aging community began self-experimenting with various substances to improve their brain health.Nootropics in the New MillenniumThe commercial aspect of nootropics didn’t really take off until the beginning of the new millennium. Popular culture was ready to embrace the idea of enhancing our normal capacities to achieve a faster, stronger and smarter human being. Superheroes were suddenly in many TV shows and movies, athletes were using supplements (and other not-so-great substances) to enhance performance, and the “Google Brain” became an extension of our normal brains. However, at the same time our dependence on smartphones and other technological wonders made ADD/ADHD a common condition even in otherwise healthy people. So we became thirsty for supplements that could improve our hectic lives.The supplement industry subsequently ballooned to billions of dollars of profit per year, with smart drugs, or nootropics, at the vanguard.Not All Nootropics Are Created EqualHowever, this wide exposure of nootropics came with a price: it became harder to tell which supplements really worked and which ones were mostly hype. Unscrupulous manufacturers promoted ineffective substances as “powerful nootropics,“ or didn’t include enough of the good nootropics in each serving so that you ended up wasting your money.Moreover, illegal or “gray zone” substances that were not approved for healthy adults (think Adderall, Modafinil, Centrophenoxine, etc.) became widely available for purchase online, often from shady sources that offered “proof” of the purity of their products. In fact, many of these “proofs”—called CoA’s, or Certificates of Analysis—came from fake labs. These unscrupulous practices are unfortunately still all too common today.There’s a reason why we have the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the U.S. and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in the E.U. Their mission is to protect us from fraud and potentially dangerous substances. And while Adderall and similar substances do indeed work for those who truly need them for serious medical reasons, for most of us they come with many potentially harmful side effects. They were not designed to be used by healthy adults at all.Real Nootropics that Work Real nootropics—such as DMAE, choline, and vinpocetine—are extremely safe to use and have decades of clinical studies that show they are not dangerous over the long run. The real test is whether supplements come directly from dietary sources such as fruits, vegetables, and herbs, or if they are actually “research chemicals.”Moreover, you can go online right now and order nootropics like piracetam, oxiracetam, phenibut, and other strange-sounding substances. But the FDA does not regulate these at all, so you simply cannot know for sure that you are getting the real deal. Instead, these are likely to be fakes that may cause serious harm to your health. And even if they’re not fakes, there are many good reasons why the FDA labels these chemicals “for research purposes only” and “not for human consumption.Many are also made in China, where manufacturers often use rice powder instead of what’s actually written on the label. So unless you know the manufacturer personally and can vouch for their integrity and clinical knowledge, you are placing yourself in a very dangerous situation. Make sure that the product is manufactured in the United States, not abroad.

FATHER OF NOOTORPICS

COCOA FLAVONOIDS

Just Say “Know” to Nootropics

Remember the anti-drug campaign slogan from the Reagan era, “Just say no”? A much better approach is to “Just say know.” To remove the hype and concentrate on what really works and is safe, it’s best to go with FDA- and EFSA-approved ingredients. That way at least you’ll know that you’re getting something real for your money. But you still need to know which nootropic will work for your specific needs, whether it will combine well with other nootropics or with any medications you’re taking, etc. Again, the mantra “Just say know” comes in handy—you have to do some research! Some manufacturers, for example, include Bacopa monnieri in their nootropic formulas. An herb used in Ayurveda, it may actually cause chronic fatigue in some people. Even a natural substance like ginseng has a dark side; its list of potential side effects is long (nausea, diarrhea, headaches, breast pain, hypoglycemia, etc.).

The Smart Approach to Smart Drugs

The smart way to approach smart drugs and supplements is to first do your research. Look for nootropic formulas with a solid safety record, for one. Also make sure they come from natural sources, don’t have scary side effects, and have the optimal combination of nootropics. These products should give you a substantial boost in focus, memory and mood. With this in mind, you can safely eliminate many of the hyped nootropics on the market today—particularly those that come with celebrity endorsements (often fake) and a promise that by taking it you’ll become a genius like Stephen Hawking. Instead, you can concentrate on the few that have the right combination of safety and efficacy. It’s not easy, but you can do it!

KNOWING NOOTROPICS

When we first began working with nootropics in the early 1990’s, we tried pretty much everything out there. We did extensive research and tested out various combinations. Some of us became lab rats for these substances. While we had some good results, as the industry grew we became disenchanted with the numerous false or misleading claims. Not to mention the oodles of profit-driven marketers pushing “miracle” pills. It also became clear that we were potentially endangering our health while trying to improve it. We realized that being a lab rat was probably not a great idea for a healthy human. So we went back to square one and . We looked at what really worked for us over the years and also had a long, solid safety record. What were the legitimate, FDA–approved and above-the-board substances? These ended up being your hallmarc nootropics like DMAE, choline, huperzine A, vinpocetine, Acetyl-L-Carnitine (Alcar), and guarana.

The Benefits of Cacao

We also discovered the wonder that are cocoa flavanols. It is one of the best safe and natural nootropics out there. In Europe, for example, the EFSA has authorized amazing health claims for cocoa flavanols, including better blood flow and healthy circulation. Unfortunately, the FDA hasn’t authorized these claims yet, even though study after study shows that cocoa flavanols have outstanding beneficial effects. You’ve likely heard the good news about the benefits of eating dark chocolate, and cocoa flavanols are responsible for those benefits. iQ² is the only nootropic formula that has everything a good smart drug cocktail should have: efficacy, safety, and excitement. The excitement comes in when you begin to experience the numerous ways iQ² improves your daily life.

    The results you’ll see after taking iQ² will vary depending on your unique brain chemistry and factors such as how rested you are, the time of day when you take it, and your general state of health.

    All of the ingredients in iQ² have been extensively tested for safety over many decades, and are considered by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe).
    The majority of users don’t experience any negative side effects, but some may be sensitive to an ingredient such as caffeine, and may experience some unwanted side effects. However, this is very rare and can be controlled with appropriate dosing; if there is a negative impact, it is generally mild, such as a slight headache due to lowered blood pressure (which in itself is a positive side effect!) or a bit of stomach discomfort, which is common with all supplements. Any negative effects are temporary and usually disappear within a day or two. Note that iQ² is not intended to be taken by pregnant or breastfeeding women, nor individuals under 18 years old. It is always a good idea to check with your doctor prior to beginning a new supplement regiment, especially if you have pre-existing medical conditions or severe allergies.
    You’ll feel the positive effects within 30 to 60 minutes of taking your first dose, though it may take up to two to four weeks of daily use to garner all of the positive effects, particularly if you are an older adult with a choline deficiency (experts estimate that 90% of adults over 50 don’t get enough choline from their diets). In addition, the raw cacao in iQ² will improve your circulation and lower your blood pressure over two to four weeks of continuous use – and these results will last for as long as you keep taking iQ². We do, however, recommend taking a day off once in a while after about a month of continuous use, so that your body doesn’t build tolerance to the caffeine in our formula*
