Herbal Nootropics in Common Products

There are many common nootropic products that are on the market today, but many people don’t realize that the herbs are ancient Indian and Chinese medicines coopted for modern companies. If you have spent any time looking at the mainstream nootropic space, you’ll realize there are many brands that try to develop nootropics to appeal to everyone and in so doing, add many different ingredients. Many of these ingredients are herbal nootropics and we will give you a brief analysis so that you can better understand this entire process.

 Herbal options in your nootropics are not new. Ancient Indian and Chinese texts used to describe this kind of thing thousands of years ago and still they are used in rural areas in the same way they were generations prior. Some of these include bacopa monnieri, which is a fat soluble herb in India used for improving cognitive abilities and memory. This herb is found in both Alpha Brain and Nootrobox products, which are the two most popular nootropics companies that exist.

 Nootrobox is a new nootropic company that has developed a series of products, one of which is called Rise and has bacopa monnieri in 300 mg dosage. The Alpha Brain is perhaps the flagship nootropic that brought the concept to the masses. It is often disregarded because of the number of ingredients and lack of positive effects, but it is still one of the most popular mainstream products and it has bacopa in it as well.

 It is obvious from these two mainstream options that there are many different ways to get advanced cognition, but the traditional ingredients always play a role. If you are looking to put something together so that you can improve your general cognitive abilities, it is useful to work with traditional medicine.

As you can see, this is the best method to improve your cognition in the long term.

Removing Anxiety with Racetams

There are plenty of people who talk about racetams from the perspective of improving memory and concentration. While these are dependent upon the analog that you buy, you will find these benefits are the primary advantages of using racetams. Even though many people love the racetams for these benefits, removing anxiety can also be a useful side effect that is finally being explored by the scientific and nootropic communities.

Right now most of the evidence supporting racetams and anti-anxiety is in the form of anecdotes. You’re going to find that removing anxiety through the use of racetams is very possible and scientifically proven as well.

A lot of people know that there is anecdotal evidence of racetams helping with anxiety, but few know exactly which ones are responsible. For most people, there are a couple of options:

  1. Aniracetam – this is the most used nootropic for reducing anxiety. Most of the time, people who are using aniracetam find that they are able to get rid of their anxiety if they have a small dose of the nootropic. That way they are seeing the anti-anxiety effects rather than the stimulation. High doses of aniracetam can be stimulating in a way that does not help with anxiety, which is why a small dose is key.
  2. Piracetam – the other racetam that is effective for reducing anxiety is the grandfather of all racetams. Piracetam actually has less research than aniracetam when it comes to reducing anxiety, but that doesn’t make it any less effective. In fact, it is one of the two more effective even though there are plenty of new analogs that have come out.

Most people don’t think of racetam as a drug for removing anxiety. Some think of L-theanine or ashwagandha as being better options, but there are plenty of ways to use racetams to remove your anxiety as well.
