Nootropics are supplements made from a combination of vitamins, herbs, and other compounds that are designed to increase your focus, memory, and cognitive function.

Does that mean that supplementing with cognitive enhancers makes you more mentally agile? Perhaps, but there are a number of factors that you should consider.

The advances in nootropics over the past few decades have meant that there have been a number of studies undertaken to show effectiveness in humans. That said it’s not an exact science.

Before I go any further, it’s important to note that by taking a nootropic, you’re not going to unleash mysterious powers that weren’t there before and become Bradley Cooper from Limitless.

Nootropics simply give you the tools to fine-tune your mind and increase your capacity to focus. This results in an increased ability to remember what you’ve read, watched, or heard. In real terms you are able to form sentences more easily, complete tasks in less time and to a higher standard, and recall names and facts with greater ease and proficiency. The stack of cognitive enhancers found in Cognito Optimise, promote a feeling of alertness, heightened motivation and increased energy. Additionally, some other nootropics such as those found in Cognito Recuperate, aid sleep effectiveness, improve mood and increase the brains capacity to deal with stress.

Brain Function

Nootropics generally have some effect on either the neurotransmitters or have a protectant effect on your brain’s cells. The neuroprotective aspect of nootropics can be beneficial in halting cognitive decline as we age.

To be truly effective, these ingredients must cross the blood-brain barrier. If they’re not able to do that, they’re not able to do anything for your brain. Getting passed this firewall is essential and all our ingredients have been shown to do this.

When looking for a nootropic, you want to see that it has some sort of effect on GABA, serotonin, or dopamine. By optimising the production of these key neurotransmitters, you’re allowing your brain to work more effectively. Neurones fire with more efficiency and your brain chemistry is optimised to allow for higher performance.

Other effective nootropic ingredients help by supplying blood flow and energy to your brain. Your brain, after all, is the most metabolically active tissue in the body. So similar to how people like to supply nitric oxide to their leg muscles to reduce fatigue, supplementing with certain nootropics can increase blood flow to your brain for increased performance.


Science-backed: Your brain is precious, so don’t resort to using smart drugs, unproven or potentially dangerous ingredients.

Doesn’t contain harmful stimulants: You’ll definitely feel something with them, but that’s not the sort of focus you want. You want sustained focus instead of something that’s only going to last you an hour or less. Using our Optimise Advanced Daytime Formula means that you can experience these benefits with no crash.

Contains significant levels of the effective ingredients: All too often companies will put small amounts of ingredients in their products to make consumers think they’ll have some effect on them. All our dosages are on the high end of what is considered to be a therapeutic dose.


Before you go out and start spending money on supplements, there are some incredibly simple things you can do increase your memory and focus.


There’s simply no reason you shouldn’t be exercising at least every other day. There are far too many benefits to ignore: stress reduction, better sleep, decreases your risk of dying from heart disease, and prevents diabetes…

I haven’t even listed everything, but take a look at that again. If you want to truly be the best version of yourself, it’s in your best interest to exercise. Not only does it help your physical health and prevent many of the common reasons people die, it also benefits your brain tremendously.

Exercising regularly can help you grow new blood vessels in your brain. Reminder: more blood = more computing power. Beyond that, it can also make certain areas of your brain larger. And who doesn’t want a larger brain?

Healthy eating

Ensuring you eat a nutrient rich diet, high in essential fatty acids provides your brain with the critical elements to maintain optimal health. Avoiding processed and refined foods limits the toxic load on the body and brain alike.


Mediating deeply can takes years to master but being able to access a light meditative state has tremendous benefits in mental state and relieving stress and anxiety.
