  1. The Best Energy Supplements for Women of All Ages and Stages

    The Best Energy Supplements for Women of All Ages and Stages

    Being a woman is tough
    Maybe not “work on an oil rig” tough….
    Or “be a soldier and go to war” tough… 

    It’s a different kind of tough, because men are men and women are women. No matter what the internet says both have their physiological differences.

    One of the key differences between men and women is their differing hormonal cycles. A woman of child-bearing age has a hormonal cycle that operates in 2 parts: the first 14 days prepares her body for pregnancy and the latter half reverses the first 14 days so it can start all over again.  

    Women past childbearing age have it a little bit easier once they pass through menopause. While all women are different, this article is going to outline the general hormonal ebbs and flows of a woman’s cycle and how it affects her energy levels. In addition, there will be some advice on supplements that ca

    A Scientific Guide to Nootropics

    A complete summary of natural and synthetic nootropics, how they work, their effects, and the relevant studies backing up all the claims.

    So let’s get started.

  4. Our Top 3 Tips For Using Nootropics to Boost Mental Energy and Optimize Your Brain for Better Performance

    Our Top 3 Tips For Using Nootropics to Boost Mental Energy and Optimize Your Brain for Better Performance

    Many people look to nootropic supplements to boost mental energy, and there’s no doubt about it: Nootropics can be very effective in stimulating specific neuron pathways to enhance brain function, increase alertness and boost mental energy.

    But for the best results, the most honest way to view the subject is to look at the big picture. Life can sort of feel like a long marathon where we move through all types of terrain. I’m not talking about a city marathon on flat pavement, but the kind that move through fields, across rivers, down through valleys and up mountains. The challenges at all the stages are different as we move through them while pursuing our goals.

    A life journey worth living requires energy - both physical and mental. While using nootropics for mental energy will give you a boost, the real key is maintaining balance on all levels. That requires optimal nutrition, supplementation and rest. This article is going to give you guidance on how to pri

    Piracetam a smart pill for your brain

    Racetam the godfather of Nootropics

    Piracetam is also considered the "very first Nootropic". In 1964 Piracetam was synthesized for the first time by a group of scientists from the Belgian pharmaceutical company UCB. Soon a name had to be devised that could describe the material to all and future members of the racetam family. For example, Roman scientist Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea, who led the team of scientists, came up with the term Nootropic. Piracetam was launched by UCB under the name "Nootropil" which is still available under the same name in Europe to this day.

  6. Can Medicinal Mushrooms Benefit Your Brain?

    Can Medicinal Mushrooms Benefit Your Brain?

    Paul Stamets, author of “Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World”, seems to have big ideas about this strange-looking fungus. While all that sounds fascinating, this article will explore a simpler question: do the benefits of medicinal mushrooms help our brain work better?

    To anyone interested in the power of mushrooms, mycologist Paul Stamets is a hero.

    Looking more like a festival hippie than a scientist, his talk on mushrooms is engaging and inspiring. Besides studying them for over 25 years, he has also written several books in addition to being featured on popular media like Discover magazine and Joe Rogan’s podcast.

    “I see the mycelium as the Earth's natural Internet, a consciousness with which we might be able to communicate. Through cross-species interfacing, we may one day exchange information with these sentient cellular networks.”

    Take Control of Technology to Improve Focus and Heal Your Brain

    Focus. Today’s world of increasing complexity demands more of it, while the technological advances seem to take it away. The buzzing and beeping never seems to stop, and it always feels like something is competing for our attention. Whether its someone blasting music in their car or the never-ending stream of advertisements in public spaces, our attention is constantly being diverted. This affects our neural pathways, disrupts our attention span and depletes focus.

    It seems like the power of our focus is being sacrificed as a result of new technologies that compete for our attention at a time when we need it the most. We can either get mentally stronger to overcome these new challenges, or suffer the consequences of foggy thinking and lack of direction. This article is going to help by outlining the mechanics of how the brain maintains focus, while giving strategies on how to deal with the technological environment. Also included are supplement suggestions that can e

    Your Brain on COVID-19: Handling Media Stress & How Nootropics Can Help

    News about COVID-19 is everywhere, and it seems everyone is on edge. We decided to create this article with some suggestions to keep your mind calm in addition to suggesting some supplements that can help.

    It seems the COVID-19 has affected everyone, but in case you’ve been on an island and haven’t heard about the issue (or are reading this far into the future), here’s a quick summary:

  9. Stacking L-Theanine & Caffeine: Scientific Benefits vs. Internet Hype

    Stacking L-Theanine & Caffeine: Scientific Benefits vs. Internet Hype

    Philosophers throughout the ages have claimed that there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes. While that’s probably true, we think coffee should be added to the list because nothing is more certain than the jolt caffeine brings to our mornings.

    Besides being the first thing most people think about, this beverage has crossed cultures and continents. Not only does it wake us up, but it brings friends together in the afternoons, is a common first date activity, and is a perfectly acceptable excuse to get up from your desk at work and take a break.

    But beware: coffee is super-stimulatory and can wear down your nervous system. The jittery, nervous feelings one can get from too much caffeine can be remedied by two quick solutions. The first is to reduce coffee; and the second, L-theanine, will balance out your brain chemistry and round out caffeine’s stimulatory effects to maintain the benefits. This article will show you how.

  10. Using Nootropics for Stress Correctly: 3 Root Causes & Solutions

    Using Nootropics for Stress Correctly: 3 Root Causes & Solutions

    There are many forms of stress: emotional, environmental, nutritional, mental and others that can tax our bodies and minds - sometimes to the limit. While there are thousands of articles online listing the best nootropics for stress, we want this one to be different.

    Instead of creating more fear around stress and prescribing “magic” pills, we would rather inform you about the neurochemical effects of stress and explain some root causes. In addition to that, we’d also like to put a different spin on stress: that it can be used as an opportunity to get stronger. The best stress-relief strategy we have learned does not involve taking pills to solve problems, but instead to use mindset and supplements (like nootropics) to support us through tough times and minimize any damage. We believe this is the best long-term solution for our customers, so let’s get started!
