Best Natural Mental Health Supplements

There are just days when we feel out of it. It’s as if no matter how hard we try, we just can’t seem to bring ourselves to like anything we do. Like, lounging on the sofa would seem like a good idea for a second but once you do it you feel so lazy and unproductive that you want to put yourself to work. The moment you do lay a finger on work, however, you don’t feel like doing it. It’s crazy, really. It’s terribly, terribly confusing too. But you know, days like that are completely normal. We all have them. We simply learn to cope in different ways. Learn more about this here.

You might feel really bad right now but you have to realize that life goes on. When you’ve got some paperwork due, your professors won’t wait until your situation gets better. The same thing goes with work. Your boss is not going to wait around and see all the pending work pile up just because you’re not in the mood to be working. Let’s face it; we live in a fast-paced world. So fast, in fact, that the word “late” and “delay” are shunned and frowned at. We have to deliver no matter what it takes. We have to perform no matter how painful it is for us.

This is why we shouldn’t judge people before we even get to hear their side of the story. For all we know, that person we make fun of and ridicule is fighting their own battle deep inside – and it might be more serious than just “feeling out of it.” In order to cope with life’s demands, some people seek solace in things that can relieve them of whatever they’re feeling. To some, it’s cigarettes. To others, it’s alcohol. There are also those who seek temporary escape from this world’s ruthless demands and so they create a world of their own. How do they get to this make-believe world of theirs, you ask? How else but by taking psychoactive drugs? Most of them are illegal to use too.

I’m talking about Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Ecstasy, and all those other dangerous stuff. They risk their well-being just trying to make life a little more bearable. They hurt their families, physically and emotionally, by destroying themselves and everything else around them. Without proper intervention, these people end up six feet under the ground without ever redeeming themselves to their families, friends, and society.

If you’re a user yourself, let me tell you something: It’s not too late to stop. You know, illegal drugs aren’t the only things you can depend on when the going gets rough.

Have you ever heard about Nootropics?

Nootropics

What Are Nootropics?

Nootropics are cognitive enhancement drugs that help stimulate brain power and activity. These drugs usually affect or influence brain activity by adjusting how our hormones work inside our brains. The common effects of Nootropics are wakefulness, alertness, improvement in focus and memory, as well as motivation. Popping a tablet before a big test or a nerve-wracking presentation gives you the energy you need to push through that ordeal.  Learn more about them here.

And guess what? They are far safer than illegal drugs. Nootropics are manufactured with chemical dosage carefully taken into consideration. Researchers make sure that each tablet or capsule would contain just the right dosage to gently stimulate brain activity – not make it go on full-drive and cause you to hallucinate and such.

On the topic of legality, we hope the next section answers your questions.

Are Nootropic Supplements Illegal?

Most of them are so rest your breath. Nootropics are cognitive enhancers with neuroprotective properties and authorities sell them in very minimal dosages so they are fairly safe. This is why many countries permit the use of Nootropics. Many studies have also affirmed the safety of their use. In several cases, it has even been found that certain types of Nootropics enhance brain health which is why there are no strict laws prohibiting their use. Compared to illegal drugs that can land you 5 to 10 years jail time, this definitely sounds like a better option – right?

Let’s explore the world of Nootropics a bit more, shall we?

Commonly Used Nootropics

Modafinil

If you’re quite the sleepyhead and you find it hard to stay awake during lectures or office hours, then Modafinil may be the best Nootropic for you. Its main function is to promote wakefulness to help you stay awake and alert during times you can’t afford to sleep. It doesn’t just keep you physically awake either. Modafinil keeps your brain awake which leads to considerably better mental performance and activity.

Noopept

This Nootropic is definitely among the popular ones. It’s like a combination of all other Nootropics. It is a well-known cognitive enhancer which is best taken during times of extreme mental demands (e.g. cramming for an exam, preparing for a life-changing presentation). It also has neuroprotective properties which makes it any brain’s friend. Learn more about popular nootropics here.

Pramiracetam

Now, this one is tough. Pramiracetam has long been known as one of the strongest Nootropics around so only consider a dose when you really can’t take the exhaustion anymore – else, you might find yourself awake for more than 24 hours. Pramiracetam not only keeps you awake but alert as well. It improves focus and memory retention. It also perks you right up whenever you need a little motivation.
