Father of the Nootropic Concept

Nootropics are substances that enhance learning and memory while being safe and protective of the brain. Nootroo Gold + Silver is a once-daily capsule containing blends of synergistic nootropics that have been shown to enhance learning and memory, stacked with ingredients that are energizing yet calming, for an all-day focus that helps you get more done.

Nootroo was designed from the ground up to bring the purest, most powerful, and safest ingredients available, into a single capsule. With Nootroo’s commitment to being the Gold Standard in Nootropics™, you know you have the best.

History of Nootropics

In the early 1960s, scientists at a lab in Belgium were trying to modify a neurotransmitter to make a sleep-aid, instead, they discovered a molecule with properties so unique that in order to classify it, the creation of an entirely new class was required.

“Nootropics”  meaning “towards the mind” was introduced in 1972 by neuropharmacologist Corneliu Giurgea and they are defined as molecules that act specifically towards higher-level, integrative activity in the brain. To be considered a nootropic, a substance must enhance learning and memory, while protecting the mind from chemical and physical damage. All this, while being non-toxic and having low-to-no side effects.

To be considered a nootropic, a substance must meet ALL of the following characteristics:

  • Enhance learning and memory
  • Have few side effects and extremely low toxicity
  • Protect the brain from physical or chemical injury
  • Enhance the firing mechanisms of neurons
  • Prevent the disruption of learned behaviors and memory formation from conditions which tend to disrupt them, such as electroconvulsive shock or hypoxia.

The original nootropic was found to enhance learning in healthy humans.

The Prototype Nootropic

The prototype nootropic, piracetam, soon began to see use in a range of populations, from pre-dementia elderly patients to young kids with ADHD. In 1976 it was tested in healthy college students and was found to increase their verbal learning.

The Nootropic Revolution

Learning that nootropics could be used to enhance the brains of healthy individuals set off a revolution in science and lead to the creation of additional nootropic molecules that were more targeted and powerful than piracetam.

Development of more powerful nootropic agents

Targeted Enhancement

As mentioned, piracetam was discovered accidentally, so as scientists began to learn the beneficial properties of the molecule and the methods of action, they set out to design more powerful and targeted versions.

Advanced Versions

Two of the most promising versions of piracetam discovered over the ensuing decades of research were phenylpiracetam and noopept. Phenylpiracetam retained the cognitive enhancement aspects of piracetam, while enhancing psychomotorstimulation. Noopept was designed as a peptide version of piracetam that would target nootropic effects deeper in the brain and has additonal calming properties.

Profound effects combining nootropics and choline source

Boosting neurotransmitters

One mechanism of action of nootropics is to increase the usage of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. By supplementing the building blocks of acetylcholine, the brain will then create more of that neurotransmitter in the brain.

Synergy

When combining nootropics like piracetam with a source of choline, there is a synergistic effect that is profoundly better than either alone.

Highest Possible Quality

Nootroo is The Gold Standard In Nootropics™ because we use the purest ingredients in the industry, as backed up by 3rd-party lab testing.

Most Powerful Blend

Our Gold and Silver formulas
are the most powerful single-capsule
nootropic blends ever created.

Synergistic Ingredients

Engineered with ingredients that work together in synergistic ways to become more powerful than any of the individual ingredients on their own.

Nootropics are marketed as pills that will increase your productivity and boost your brain power...in Silicon Valley, nootropics have become part of a subculture that is trying to work as many productive hours a day as possible.
