UNDERSTAND WHAT NOOTROPICS ARE AND WHAT THE BEST ONES ARE
Nootropics are defined as cognitive enhancers, which means that will improve your ability to focus, give you a boost of energy and ultimately help you be more productive. With so many people working from home in 2020, nootropic supplements have been an essential for us at TDS. Although working from home can sound ideal, it’s also difficult to establish a working routine without getting distracted. Taking nootropics is the perfect way to keep your mind focused on the tasks that need to get done and help you be more productive.
There’s actually one type of nootropics than we’ve all been taking since we were students: caffeine. You can find it in ingredients like coffee or ginseng. Whenever we say that we need a cup of coffee to have more energy and work better, that’s exactly how nootropics will have an effect on you. If coffee gives you the jitters (and we want none of that), try going for a nootropic supplement and you’ll still have the same results! Caffeine pairs really well with L-Theanine, having these two ingredients in one product is really going to take your focus and clarity to another level.
The Benefits of Nootropics
Like many supplements we take in our modern life, nootropics originate from Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. These plants and botanicals are the best superfoods for your brain. Nootropics are on the rise in the Western world, but have been around for centuries.
Just like having a cup of coffee, nootropics are going to make you feel more alert and help you be more productive on the short term. If you have a deadline coming up, they can really be a lifesaver.
On the long term, nootropics will you more mental clarity as they will help you feel less stressed. These supplements can have a real impact on your mood, make you feel more balanced, like you have it more together.
Should I take Nootropics?
It’s easy to get distracted or to keep thinking about other stuff than work or whatever we are doing in the moment. Nootropics will help you be more focused and get things done. Just like any other food supplement, you need to have a healthy lifestyle for them to have the desired effect. With nootropics, you definitely want to make sure you get enough sleep before taking them. Otherwise their effect won’t last for very long.
In a day and age where we are constantly racing against the clock and our minds are constantly busy, we get tired quite easily and it’s hard to focus on our daily tasks. Taking nootropics will bring you mental clarity and help you really focus on the things that are at the top of your to-do list. You can find a lot of guides on ‘How to be productive’ and ‘How to have more structure’ because a lot of our minds are very scattered and all over the place.
