What does "nootropic" mean?
The word itself comes from the Greek words nous for "mind" and trepien for "to bend." Nootropics, also known as “smart drugs”, are a diverse group of medicinal substances that can provide the consumer with cognitive benefits.
What are the benefits of nootropics?
Nootropics are said to improve human thinking, learning, memory, creativity, and focus. Positive outcomes can be especially profound in cases where these functions are to any degree impaired.
Natural nootropics may also increase blood circulation and oxygen flow to the brain, according to a 2016 study. This is beneficial for brain health, since the brain depends on a continuous supply of oxygen and nutrients to function properly.

Caffeine (naturally occurs in all tea from the Camellia Sinensis plant)
