Meditation is a key element to enhancing your brain’s ability to focus and stay on task. Mindfulness meditation can change your brain in as little at 8 weeks. We will provide resources to help you learn and sustain a meditation practice.
Exercise is crucial for optimizing the brain’s energy stores. The Protocol will teach you the most effective and efficient exercises for the brain from both the physical and mental spheres. Brain training combined with nootropics has shown greater results than either activity alone.
Nootroo Gold & Silver have you covered in this category, but we will also share with you additional tips, tricks, nutrients, and supplements that can help you get the most out of your nootropics (and brain).
Sleep is crucial to memory formation, consolidation, and general brain health. We will teach you techniques to help you sleep better, increase neurotransmitter synthesis, wake up feeling more refreshed and even how to fall asleep more easily.
Diet is a key regulator of energy and how you feel. We will teach you dietary tricks to optimize your body’s metabolism so that your brain can receive more energy and utilize that energy more effectively.
The Nootroo Protocol has been designed to bring together all of the most important aspects for optimal performance and health. As a subscriber, you will receive continued access to our knowledge-base as well as a step-by-step tips and information to aid you in achieving optimal performance.

Nootroo Protocol

The Nootroo Protocol has been developed alongside our Nootroo Gold and Silver Formula to help you get the highest return on your nootropics, by aligning your body and brain for optimal optimization It is an accumulation of all of the information we have that we believe is required for not just optimal performance, but for an optimal life. They are simple, yet all encompassing of the cross-sections we have evaluated to be necessary to truly make significant improvements and fine-tuning of our body and mind.

The Nootroo Protocol is designed around meditation, exercise, diet and sleep, in addition to nootropics. The system has been designed so that an individual can achieve the maximum benefit from taking Nootroo. You can use the acronym MENDS to remember it.


Meditation has been shown to change the brain in as little as 8 weeks. A harvard study showed that the areas related to fear (amygdyla) actually had significanlly lower activity by the end of study, simply from mindfulness meditation alone. In terms of cognition, meditation is one of the most powerful additions you can choose. Meditation is will power, mindfulness meditation is the ability to focus on a single thing, such as the breath for an extended period of time.

If you are new to meditation or apprehensive to the practice, don’t worry, I will teach you techniques that work for any level and any mindset. I am somewhat non-traditional in my style and bring a biohacker flavor to it. For example, Nootroo created a meditation battle league (the MBL), where we go “head-to-head” wearing EEG headsets to see who can meditate deeper. It sounds a little counter-intuitive, but it is actually extremely important to be able to meditate under pressure because that is when you actually need mindfulness the most, especially in increasing your performance and ability to stay on an individual task.

When you combine nootropics with meditation, you can actually help induce and sustain a meditative state. We can tell this by looking at EEGs of people on noopept and piracetam. L-theanine, the amino acid found in green tea and Nootroo Green, is what causes the calming effect in tea that is absent from coffee. It has been called a “synthetic meditation” because it helps align the alpha waves in the brain, which is what naturally occurs during meditation and focus. We will see this type of synergy all through the elements of the Nootroo Protocol. That is why you should try and integrate and fulfill as many elements as possible each day.


Exercise is important for health, blood pressure, weight loss etc, but how often do you hear people actually telling you that you need to exercise to increase the amount of ATP (energy) in your brain so you can think faster and in greater volume? This is the lens through which we look at all the elements of the Nootroo Protocol. How can we maximize your benefits for increased cognition, memory and learning. As for exercise, we believe the best exercise is the exercise you actually do and so we offer you tools to maximize your return on time. And we split exercise further into both mental and physical activity.

One main goal of physical of exercise is to push the heart rate up and then allow it to come back down, and then to repeat. There is a very efficient type of exercise called high-intensity interval training (HIIT), that is focused on maximizing. There are even scientists who figured out the shortest, most effective HIIT that could be achieved at home with no special equipment, and they distilled it into a 7-minute workout. We will share little tips like that and workouts that help you maximize your return on working out. Did you know that ergonomics is not actually about posture, but about efficiency, and it is inefficient to be injured or to have your productive capacity unnecessarily limited by your physical endurance. So in this sphere, we also cover posture, body work, trigger point therapy, feats of strength, grip training and more.

In terms of mental exercise, we are big fans of all different types of brain training. There are studies showing that nootropics combined with brain training is better than brain training or nootropics alone. People also say you get what you measure, so in our case here we will teach you to isolate which memory or cognitive trait you most want to improve, then we will help you find the metric to measure, and then help you hopefully increase that measurement. This is the essential art of biohacking.

Personally, I have worked to enhance my ability to learn, something I refer to as meta-learning. Just as a computer is limited to its input/output (I/) speed, so too are we as humans limited by our ability to take in information and put out information. While adults typically read at around 300 words per minute (wpm), I use tools and have trained to be able to read over 1000 wpm (although I prefer 700-800 wpm). As for input, I have worked to increase my typing speed to over 150 wpm with high-accuracy and am ranked in the 99.9 percentile on This meta-learning is something nootropics help with and it yields the greatest return on investment of any self-improvement you can do. You can learn to learn better, and then use that learning to learn better recursively and indefinitely. Following this part of the protocol will help you learn to learn more effectively.


Nootropics are an area you are obviously taking care of, or you probably wouldn’t be here. Your journey to optimal performance began the moment you clicked that buy button and is doubled-down on each time you take your Nootroo. Nootropics will help you achieve the other tasks more easily, if you have more fuel and increased your brain bioenergentics from the citicoline, you are now more able to meditate, and during that meditation, you create an amazing to do list and then go on carry out all those taks, you now are free to go exercise. Also, the nootropic is the easiest one, you just take it and are good to go.


Your body runs as a sort of engine with food as the fuel. No matter how powerful and optimized your engine is, if you put the wrong type of fuel in, it can ruin everything. We believe the optimal fuel for the human body is actually fat in the form of ketones, not glucose in the form of sugar. Fat has many advantages to sugar, especially in terms of creating stable energy for the brain. The ketogenic diet was actually developed specifically because of this property, as a intervention in drug resistant epileptic children. In layman’s terms epilepsy, is caused by erratic energy in the brain, and ketones are extremely stable and consistent in their delivery of fuel.

Not only does the brain prefer ketones for energy over glucose, but each cycle of metabolism generates almost three times more energy (ATP) per cycle. Further, ketones on their own offer other cognitive benefits. Also, just by the way in which the diet excludes certain high-inflammation foods, many inflammation related ailments you did not known were causes issues, can be eliminated. This gives you a great baseline to make sure you aren’t inadvertently sabotaging yourself. We will cover the ketogenic diet more in depth, but do not underestimate its importance.


Another highly underestimated aspect of optimal memory and cognition is sleep. Sleep is important for a number of reasons, not limited to consolidation of memory and the cleaning out of plaques in the brain. We will teach you how to measure your sleep so that you can wake up at optimal times, as well as delve into the significant relationship between your biological clock known as the circadian rhythm and light sources. We will teach you how to powernap, what a second sleep is and more.
