What are Nootropics and Adaptogens?

Nootropics, or cognitive enhancers, are substances people use to improve brain function, focus, motivation, memory and creativity.

Adaptogens are a class of herbs and substances believed to help the body adapt to physical and psychological stress. They are thought to aid clarity and calmness within the mind and body, helping it to regulate various emotional and physical symptoms and maintain balance during times of stress.

Key Characteristics

Some key characteristics and examples of Nootropics and Adaptogens include:

  • Stress Response: it is believed they help modulate the body’s response to stress by supporting the adrenal glands and the production of stress hormones like cortisol.
  • Homeostasis: One of the primary claims associated with adaptogens is their ability to help the body maintain balance and resist the adverse effects of stress.
  • Non-Specific Action: it is thought that Adaptogens help the body adapt to a wide range of stressors rather than targeting a specific organ or system.
  • Normalising Effects: Adaptogens are believed to have normalising effects on physiological functions. For example, they might help regulate energy levels, immune functions and blood pressure.
