There have been a lot of health trends in the last few years, and there is one which has specially caught our attention; Nootropics. Can you get ‘smarter’ with drugs? Nootropics says ‘YES’. A small pill is all set to supersize your intelligence level and yes, that sounds fictional too.
Nootropics comes in the form of supplements and drugs and e-commerce giants like Amazon have also begun to stock such drugs for supplies.

Just like there is real and fake in every other thing, nootropics has natural and synthetic formats. The trick to differentiate between them is only through its impact over a period of time.
If the nootropic you consume is made from natural elements, it has limited side effects and the chance of addiction is low. If you are ever recommended with caffeine, Provigil and Adderall, never forget that they are synthetic nootropics and no longer helpful.
