What are Nootropics & Smart Drugs?
Smart drugs are active substances that improve the cognitive abilities of humans. They boost concentration, receptivity, thinking ability, memory and creativity. Smart drugs are taken by healthy people as lifestyle medications, for example, for school, study or work. Typical examples are modafinil, methylphenidate and caffeine. Most substances are not approved for this field of application. Some of them are prescription drugs, narcotics or even prohibited narcotics, which can cause severe side effects. Miracle drugs such as NZT from the film and TV series Limitless do not yet exist – they may be developed in the future.
