What are Nootropics?
Nootropics are smart actives that can be taken to improve mental performance in healthy people. They have gained popularity in today's highly competitive society and are most often used to boost memory, focus, creativity, intelligence, motivation as well as combat cognitive decline.
There are two different nootropics: synthetic, and natural/ herbal nootropics. Natural nootropics are proven in boosting the brain function while at the same time making the brain healthier by supplying your body with powerful bioactives that stimulate certain cognitive pathways and keep your brain and cells healthy.
The Olio Store has put our two most powerful natural nootropic products to create the ultimate Brain Combo! The Brain Combo consists of our Mushroom Capsules and Nootropic Capsules. Let’s look at what makes these 2 products the perfect pair when it comes to boosting cognition and unlocking your mental power:
But besides their umami flavor, medicinal mushrooms also offer great benefits for the brain, immunity, and overall health. Mushrooms in general contain protein, minerals, antioxidants, and various vitamins. However, mushrooms can also be classified as adaptogenic or nootropic. Adaptogenic Mushrooms like
Cordyceps, Reishi, Lions Mane and Chaga are mushrooms that fall under the category of adaptogens. Adaptogens provide support for both physical and mental health, primarily in helping regulate and minimise the effects of stress. These are beneficial for helping fight fatigue and maintaining a balanced mood. Adaptogens also help support the healthy functioning of the body’s systems. Nootropics primarily support brain health. This means that mushrooms that count as nootropics boost cognitive functions like learning and creativity. In order to achieve therapeutic dosages of mushrooms, you are required to consume grams of each type, whereas our Mushroom Capsules consist of high quality mushroom extracts that contain up to 10 times the amount of actives as raw mushrooms. This makes it possible to achieve your therapeutic dose in 2 capsules rather than having to consume tablespoons worth of raw mushrooms.
The Olio Store’s Nootropic Capsules are a next-generation mind and mood enhancing formulation of traditional herbs and beneficial actives for increasing cognitive function, focus and motivation. Some of it’s ingredients include:
Bacopa (Bacopa monnieri) is a plant that has been used for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. It is sometimes called Brahmi. Bacopa might increase certain brain chemicals that are involved in thinking, learning, working memory and memory retention. It might also protect brain cells from chemicals involved in Alzheimer disease.
Phosphatidylserine is a fatty substance called a phospholipid. It covers and protects the cells in your brain and carries messages between them. Phosphatidylserine plays an important role in keeping your mind and memory sharp.
Preclinical studies suggest that Lion's mane may reduce inflammation, improve cognition, and increase the release of nerve growth factor, a protein that can increase the length of nerve cell processes.
Vitamin B-6 is important for normal brain development and for keeping the nervous system and immune system healthy.
Vitamin B-12 plays an essential role in red blood cell formation, cell metabolism, nerve function and the production of DNA, the molecules inside cells that carry genetic information.
Ginkgo has been a part of traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. The leaves were used to treat brain and circulatory problems and respiratory conditions.
Panax Ginseng has been shown to improve cognitive performance, mainly short-term memory.
These cognitive benefits and many other ginseng health benefits are thought to be due to the root's antioxidant properties.
Theanine is an amino acid that supports memory and thinking skills. Taking L-theanine might help healthy people stay focused. It is also a powerful anxiolytic that assists in keeping you calm and in a reduced state of stress
Maca packs high levels of iron and iodine to promote healthy cells and to help keep your metabolism on track. Its big doses of potassium help digestion and make muscles happy. Maca is also rich in calcium, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.
