Guest Blog – London Nootropics
Have you ever heard of adaptogens and nootropics? These are two buzzwords in the health and wellness world that you may have come across, but might not know exactly what they are. In our guest blog today from London Nootropics we delve into what these terms mean and how they can benefit you.
Adaptogens and Nootropics: What Are They and How Can They Benefit You?
Nootropics are brain-boosters that have gained popularity over recent years. They are known to enhance cognitive performance and improve brain health. Nootropics work in many ways to produce a wide range of benefits across memory, focus, motivation, verbal fluency and more. Many nootropics also have adaptogenic properties, which means that they help your mind and body adapt to physical, mental, and emotional stressors and find balance.
Adaptogens, on the other hand, are natural substances that help the body adapt to stress. They are a group of plants, herbs, and mushrooms that help regulate your body’s physiological response to stress, whether it’s physical, emotional or mental. Adaptogens can have a range of benefits including improving focus, reducing fatigue, and boosting energy levels.
Some of our favourite adaptogens:
Lion’s Mane: Known as the “brain mushroom,” this is incredible for brain function and cognitive health.
Cordyceps: Great for a natural boost, this is known to increase aerobic capacity, oxygen flow, and boost ATP. It’s great before a workout, when fatigued, or when traveling.
Ashwagandha: This works on our adrenals and can help balance our hormones/help us achieve homeostasis. It’s great with coffee as it can help balance cortisol so we don’t get jitters/anxiety.
How can I incorporate Nootropics and adaptogens into my diet?
