At a certain stage, when trying to finalize a piece of writing, whether it be a an essay, poem, blog post, or book, we can get tired and cannot help but feel the need for a little ‘mental boost’. Also, everyday stress and tiredness makes us feel sluggish and affects our ability to think. Fortunately, we live in a time where a dose of vitamins, psychoactive herbs, or edible neurotransmitter compounds can give us the chance to to energise and refocus.
Nootropics, also known as smart drugs and cognitive enhancers, are substances that improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, and motivation. They can be the magical spell you need to get a natural, more sustainable boost of energy and focus.
After some taste-testing and experimentation, we have prepared a list of some of the best nootropics, including brief descriptions about how they can potentially enhance creative writing performance.
If you’d like to try and see if they work for you, clicking on the featured links will take you to dedicated online stores where you can place an order. We made sure to include only the most high-quality products and tested suppliers.
Please keep in mind that the substances listed below are single compounds. This makes it easier to review end describe their properties. However in order to get the most out of using these supplements, a better option may be to invest in purchasing ready-made ‘stacks’ or pre-mixed combinations with additional active ingredients. These are also included in our list so be sure to check them out.
At the moment our list is limited and quite small. However, we aim to regularly add new products (that work). If you’d like to help us make it grow, please feel free to get in touch and let us know if you think anything is missing or in case of any questions.
Also, please remember that nothing beats a good nap and then some coffee to help with creativity.
