The word is defined as "a nutrient, of a substance, drug; enhancing cognitive function", however, we are only interested in Natural #Nootropics or "Noots". I could talk about this all day but will stream-line the contents for time purposes.
Favorite Noots and Nutrients
Some of my favorite #noots are #Ashwagandha, certain Green tea varieties like #Matcha, #Maca, #B6 and #B12, #Magnesium, #Cordyceps and #Reishi but there are various noots depending if you are using TCM (traditional Chinese medicinal herbs), Ayervedic herbs, South American herbs and alike.
Ashwagandha (Latin = Withania somnifera) or commonly known as Indian ginseng is one of the big players when it comes to noots. Its that superfood that helps amp-up and protect your cognitive functions, big anti-ager that helps smooth away wrinkles and lines, has adaptogen effects and affects, calms and restores inner peace as it assists in controlling the stress hormone #Cortisol. There are many uses for Ashwagandha but I will let you do your own research and determine if its right for you.
