The Definitive Guide to Nootropics

We cover all that in The Definitive Guide to Nootropics.

Nootropics cover a broad category of compounds with cognitive boosting properties.
They have minimal side-effects and are appropriate for long-term use.
The Big List is a quick reference guide for nootropics. Learn what it’s for, how it’s used, side effects, interactions and dosing suggestions.
The Best Nootropics
Achieving brain optimization comes with a lot of trial and error. Experimenting to see what works best for you. But spend enough time in the nootropics community, and you begin to see patterns develop.
After you try the latest edition to the racetam-family of nootropics. Most biohackers settle into the nootropic that works best for each category of; cognition & focus, memory, energy & motivation, anxiety & depression, and brain repair & maintenance.
The “Best Nootropics” page is a distillation of what I have found to be the best nootropics for each category of brain optimization. You’ll find a list of the best nootropic compounds for each category. And links through to more detailed articles for each category.
Hi David, do you have any recommendations for companies that sell the nootropics by themselves? (Individual nootropics) I want to start creating my own stack little by little to see what works for me but hard to find a company that’s reputable with singles, also hard to find the starting dose on them as they are so high, like rhodiola for instance, everything I see is 500mg and the starting dose I’m looking for is 200 or 300 mg, how do i navigate that? Thanks for your help!
David Tomen says
Melissa, there are several major supplement manufacturers who sell supplements containing one ingredient. See this article on how to find the best supplements: https://nootropicsexpert.com/7-tips-for-choosing-the-highest-quality-nootropic-supplements/. And I highly recommend following the suggestions on that page closely. Including avoiding “other ingredients”.
If you find a supplement you want to try and the dose is too high then open the capsule and dump half of it out for half a dose. But get capsules and avoid tinctures, GelCaps, etc. if you need to open it.
Thanks David, I have been watching your videos religiously on YouTube so I will check out this link. Hypothetically, if you were me, where would you buy those one ingredient Nootropics? Always trying to follow where the experts are buying from thank you for replying
David Tomen says
Melissa, if I were you I’d look at Amazon, iHerb, Swanson, NOW Supplements, Thorne, Double Wood Supplements, etc. Take your pick. Supplement companies often sell from their own website. But also have stores within the major online stores.
Richard Clark says
With Methylene Blue, can your urine color indicate your level of absorption or tissue saturation? Can urine color be an indicator of a target dosage? I have been taking 75 drops, twice a day for many weeks. I’ve found at that dosage it is easier to count eye droppers full rather than counting out 75 drops.
David Tomen says
Richard, your urine will be blue no matter what the dosage of Methylene Blue. It is not a indicator of how much your body is using.

I’ve just started taking saffron and was wondering whether it had any interactions with alcohol or chamomile. Do you know?
David Tomen says
Steven, the only interactions with Saffron that I have found are in my review here: https://nootropicsexpert.com/saffron/
