Benefits of Nootropics and Adaptogens

It’s no secret that whatever you put in is what you’re going to get out.

Everyone has a morning ritual.

If you’re like me, then you love starting out your mornings with a hot cup of coffee.

Personally, I enjoy the caffeine spike to boost my energy. It really gives me a head start to the day. 

But what if our coffee could fuel our brains too?

Just like every other part of your body, it’s important to have a healthy brain. After all, you couldn’t function without it!

We all want to maintain good brain health because we all want to improve our memory and cognitive function, and even help reduce the risk of memory loss that comes with age.

We’re always searching for more ways to improve brain health, whether it’s doing puzzles, brain games, or the latest brain healthy superfood, but what if there’s a much easier, faster, and better way?

Nootropics just might be the answer you’re looking for. 

What Are Nootropics?

Nootropics are substances that are thought to improve mental performance.

It can be in the form of a supplement, drug, or in this case superfoods.

In this case, the special foods we’ll discuss in this blog have properties that’ve been shown to help brain function.

When consumed regularly, they’ve been known to improve learning ability and memory skills, help people think better under extreme stress, help fight against drug effects, and help more neurons fire successfully in the brain, all without any negative side effects.

How many times do you find yourself frozen at your desk because you just have too much work piling up and you don’t know which pile to attack first?

How many times do you find yourself forgetting what you’re doing, or simply zoning out so often that it takes you much longer to finish simple tasks?

If any of these scenarios sound like you, you should consider adding some some natural nootropics to your diet.

What Are Adaptogens?

Adaptogens are super herbs, plants, mushrooms, and other natural substances that are believed to help relieve mental, physical and emotional stressors.

They’re natural and completely safe and non-toxic.

They’re substances used in herbal medicine to help balance, restore and protect the mind and body.

An adaptogen is a botanical that greatly improves your body’s ability to adapt to stress, whether it’s a hectic schedule, heat or cold, noise, high altitudes or any number of other stressors. This elite class of herbs impart strength, energy, stamina, endurance, and improve mental clarity. 


The combination of adaptogens and nootropics potentially may have amazing effects.

They may help support the overall quality of life by helping balance you physically and mentally.

Nootropics and adaptogens may be key to expanding our human potential.

But what foods are considered nootropics and adaptogens, and how can you even begin to start adding them in with your current diet?


Turmeric is one of the best natural nootropics out there.

With daily intake, it has been shown to improve overall brain function, and can even help prevent memory loss and symptoms of dementia that are typical with old age. (1)

The only downside though is that turmeric isn’t always easily absorbed by the body.

To help with absorption, it should be taken with black pepper, which brings us to our next ingredient.

Black Pepper

Black pepper isn’t just good for helping with turmeric absorption.

It has its own benefits on brain health as well.

Just like turmeric, black pepper is thought to help improve brain function, as well as fight against memory loss and other brain-related issues. (2)


Cinnamon has many health benefits.

In one study, it has been shown to improve cognition and delay cognitive impairment. (3)

Plus, cinnamon adds a pleasant aroma and a great taste.

Lion’s Mane

Lion’s Mane is a particular type of mushroom that packs in a lot of benefits.

Just like turmeric and black pepper, Lion’s Mane improves overall brain function, but it also does a lot more for brain health too. (4)

In one study, it actually helped brain cells to grow. (5)

It also helps those with memory loss and can reduce the chances of dementia in later years.

Plus, Lion’s Mane also serves as an adaptogen, helping support symptoms of depression and anxiety by positively changing the areas of the brain responsible for emotions. (6,7)

Now that’s a superfood!


Chaga, like lion’s mane, is another type of magical mushroom with incredible health benefits.

This superfood, in one study, was shown to fight infections, diseases, and inflammation. (8,9,10)

Less sick days means more productivity.


L-Theanine is found in teas is well-known for its calming properties, making it a very popular adaptogen.

It can help with relaxation and help alleviate symptoms of anxiety. (11)

Another great benefit of L-Theanine is that it may help improve concentration, overall brain health and allowing you to get more done in less time. (12)
