Nootropics, (pronounced "noo-trop-icks") also commonly called smart supplements, smart drugs and cognitive enhancers , are a category of nutritional supplements that target the brain, support cognitive processes and provide cognitive enhancement. In particular nootropic supplements are designed to support concentration, mood, intelligence, motivation and memory.
Many nootropics and cognitive enhancers work to enhance mental function by altering neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, serotonin and dopamine which have roles in concentration, mood and supporting attention span. Others work by stimulating nerve growth, protecting against damage to the brain and improving learning rate.
