Do You Want To Maximize
Are you genuinely interested in delving into the world of Nootropics, looking at ways you may increase your drive each day or focus or ability to retain more info with greater clarity, but fear that taking what some people call "smart drugs" will mess with your head - maybe permanently?
Maybe you're a student, work from home or face an intense professional environment each day and have considered trying to up your game a little?
Hi there, my name's Rob Carmichael and the author of Nootropics for Newbies, and for quite sometime now I've been looking at ways to improve or basically increase my daily output, what I now know is called your "baseline productivity level".
A little bit about myself: For the last 3 years I've been working from home trying to make it at affiliate marketing and in terms of what I was getting accomplished each day, my susceptibility or weakness I should say to kick back or find alternative things to do - anything but getting on with the task in hand - was seriously getting in the way of what I wanted to achieve on a daily and weekly basis.
I'd read the odd article and even seen the film Limitless (albeit far fetched by today's standards of nootropics), to know that such brain supplements did exist but I still remained skeptical and unsure of their potential and whether or not they were simply trumped up placebo pills.
But my intrigue persisted, however the problem I faced in the beginning was that I didn't know anyone personally who I could rub shoulders with who actually took these supplements, plus I didn't feel comfortable about raising the topic of nootropics with people close to me, so for me I took to the online communities over at reddit and longcity, the two largest nootropics forums for noots (nootropic user's) respectively.
Here I found people from both venues to be extremely helpful where some went way out of their way to try to help me get to the bottom of which nootropic best suited me, advising me on the correct "stack" (two or more nootropics) that could help me achieve the exact cognitive enhancement I was after, specifically - keeping "in the zone" for longer periods of time without any repercussions on my health.
That said however, the advice soon became quite overwhelming, with one person from one forum recommending one nootropic, then others soon commenting in disagreement, forcing you to do your own homework - as you always should - to find out more about the recommended nootropic and dosage in question.
That has since lead me to spend the last ten months researching the world of these fascinating brain enhancing compounds, learning for example how Russian astronauts on the International Space Station use Phenylpiracetam to enhance their mental and physical performance at different stages during space flight, positively affecting their accuracy, operating in activities at higher speeds, without compromising decision making in extreme conditions.
Hear what others are saying:
"Crikey - you've put a lot of work into this - it's a great compendium! Excellent value. Well done and thank you very much :)"
From improving cognitive performance, physical skills, memory retention to somatic issues, astronauts aren’t the only ones it turns out benefiting from Phenylpiracetam: soldiers, military personnel and once athletes too take it as it can be used as both a mental and physical energy booster, promoting your body’s natural production of dopamine - one of the neurotransmitters that makes us “feel good" - which is why we get the “runner’s high”.
Uncovering Phenylpiracetam which derives from the Racetam family of Nootropics, the penny soon began to drop and it became apparent through research that there were really just 3 families of nootropics all with a different MOA - Mechanism Of Action, one for cognitive enhancement, one which acts as a wakefulness/alertness agent and the third for memory.
It also became clear during research that a true nootropic is NOT a "smart drug".
Some do flirt the line but as listed and detailed in this book, a nootropic supplement must adhere to 5 positive health criteria, one of which states it must: "safeguard the brain against physical/chemical injuries inflicted from barbiturates & scopolamine", clearly a rule no "smart drug" abides by.
More genuine surprise also arose when I discovered that Nootropics are now being used to treat not just a mood lacking in motivation, focus or an inability to recall data, but ADD, ADHD, joint pain, anxiety, depression and even sex drive, while they are becoming a popular alternative to prescription drugs but free from the dependency and the depression side-effects that prevail through the long-term use of medication drugs.
Due to their extremely low toxicity levels, Nootropics are now providing the solution to many of these cognitive ailments, which is exactly what this book explores, detailing the precise nootropic currently being used to target these health issues.
With the wealth of science that expands the last 30 years plus into the field of Nootropics which is heavily concentrated on enhancing cognitive thought and behavior - this is central to the theme of "Nootropics for Newbies", backed up by scientific research, allowing you to unearth just which cognitive function or MOA - whether motivation, memory or learning skills for example - can be improved through which particular nootropic or nootropics that are both safe and come highly recommended as sourced from the latest medical data and online nootropic user review threads of 2016.
"Drawn from ten months of research, personal testing and valuable user reviews left on hundreds of websites, blogs & forums"
Designed especially for people new on the scene looking for a breeze-free introductory learning experience into the fascinating world of these new brain enhancing supplements.
Whether it's a lack of daily drive, motivation, focus, whatever you want to call it or your inability to recall information essential for your studies or job - certain types of Nootropics can provide the answer here, free of any side-effects.
"Nootropics are about Safely Raising Your Baseline Productivity Long-term"
As stated a true Nootropic is not a "smart drug". Yes, many will argue differently that some nootropics may lead to dependency issues, but to be absolutely clear a genuine nootropic supplement must be:
"Free of typical pharmacology found in other psychotropic drugs with few side effects plus extremely low levels of toxicity”.
Plus: "A nootropic should safeguard the brain against physical/chemical injuries inflicted from barbiturates & scopolamine”
Two criteria smart drugs do not adhere to hence those which don't are clearly outlined in this book.
Most nootropics are regarded as safe and in some cases serve as “neuroprotective agents”, meaning they preserve brain function and cognition. There is even some evidence to suggest that they may help prevent age-related cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases.
Nootropics are designed to improve cognitive function to help people perform better, maximize productivity and ultimately achieve their full potential. They will not upgrade your IQ or transform you from a moderate to a brilliant orator overnight but they will help you maximize your full potential by upgrading your baseline productivity level.
During teenage years where critical stages of brain development take place, it is unknown as to whether consistent nootropic use is detrimental. Some speculate that nootropics are unlikely to cause any harm and may actually improve brain development. Others believe that the brain may become dependent on the substance and may rely on the drug for functioning rather than creating new adaptations associated with new experiences. There is evidence that suggests the human brain is likely fully developed by age 25 (our mid-20s). If you use a nootropic consistently before your brain has developed, it may impair certain connections from being formed that would’ve been beneficial. If your brain is fully developed and you are over the age of 25, there’s less risk that the drug will induce major functional changes.
This book clearly lays out which nootropics are safe and which offer the propensity for abuse.
There are multiple studies of the long-term use of Racetams for example that show they are safe. Provigil on the other hand which is a prescription drug in the U.S that induces wakefulness may deplete dopamine when used over long-term, leading to possible withdrawals. "Nootropics for Newbies" clearly lays them on the line for you.
Don't worry, this is the whole point of this nootropics guide. While an introduction into the world of nootropics, months of comprehensive research clearly list which nootropics are safe depending on their MOA - Mechanism Of Action: Memory, Focus, Mood, Attention, Anti-Depression, Anti-Anxiety, Anti-Fatigue plus more functions - for you to choose from.
"Are You Ready to Step Up
into the Big League?
If Not Now, When?"
So Why Don't We Treat Ourselves Well?
My general view is that having the fundamentals in place is the most important thing - diet and sleep, but interestingly I found that the effects of nootropics motivated me to get these things in place again.
See, when you don't feel good it's hard to get the motivation and remember what it feels like to dominate your day.
What I mean is the amazing clarity of thought and motivation I felt reminded me what it feels like when you have your diet and sleep in check + a little bit more.
This sounds kind of cheesy but they really have helped me get started on a positive upward spiral of motivation.
Maximize Your Potential
Maximize your potential in life - why hold back?
We all know life is short, which we endlessly drum into ourselves the more so as we get older. Why not teach yourself about Nootropics and allow yourself to grow your skills & productivity exponentially as fast as possible?
Are you tired of taking forever to get a project finished?
There are a few all-natural Nootropics you just really can't pass up if procrastinating is your Achilles heal.
An elevated mood, the urge to do something productive, the general stuff you are doing just looks more interesting, where at the end of office work hours you feel no tiredness. Side-effects sound good right?
Be a Better
Feel amazing, be incredibly alert, allow your actions and speech to feel swift and calculated, sound enticing?
Seriously, these are just some of the effects that taking Nootropics can deliver. They can be a game-changer for becoming a much happier, nicer & more productive person.
I work full day and study all night. So I have little time in the week days to do other things that are important for me such as reading, meditating and going to the gym.
Since I started college a few years ago, I always tried to conciliate these activities, but it has always been tough, and I never had true success. I also had problems with my sleep cycles too.
But now I can wake up at 6a.m, go to the gym or reading and meditating in alternate days, work full day with high motivation. I am taking lots on at work in my company, and consequently gaining more responsibility and trust. I also study Mandarin, and I find it very hard. Now the vocabulary studies and 发音 (pronunciation) became a little easier.
I am already thinking in starting a new language in parallel. In my scant free time, I don't f#ck around. I use every second of it to do things that are important for me.
"Nootropics won’t transform you from a regular debater into a brilliant polemicist overnight but they can help you get more things accomplished throughout the day by sharpening your focus and heightening your baseline productivity level."
"While there is much jiggery-pokery in the field of alternative health, there is also rock solid evidence to support vitamin intake for brain health, specifically for mood, motivation, clarity and alertness".
"The nootropic sulbutiamine may be considered the ultimate Thiamine nootropic, where it has a more advanced ability to cross the blood-brain barrier – the filtering mechanism of the capillaries that carries blood to the brain and spinal cord tissue – helping to treat asthenia – a lack of energy – and improve impaired memory".
"Phenibut is an anxiolytic supplement which can help relieve stress and promote a positive mood, but when it comes to orgasms, users have spoken of experiencing “full blown body orgasms with waves of profound euphoria”. "
One key criteria a nootropic must meet is for it to be “free of typical pharmacology found in other psychotropic drugs with few side effects plus extremely low levels of toxicity” - unlike prescription drugs where dependency, depression and/or anxiety, low fatigue and impaired cognition may prevail through long-term use.
As Dr. Cornelius E. Giurgea argued, 2 of the 5 criteria a supplement must meet in order to be coined a “nootropic” are that they should “safeguard the brain against physical/chemical injuries inflicted from barbiturates & scopolamine” and “be free of typical pharmacology found in other psychotropic drugs with few side effects and with extremely low levels of toxicity”.
Stacking brain supplements has become quite an art form over the years where in fact it’s quite rare nowadays to use just one nootropic brain booster on its own, since the benefits may significantly increase when multiple nootropics are combined.
First you need to decide what part of you you would like to treat or improve, i.e attention, memory, anxiety, reasoning, focus or wakefulness.
With nootropics many say you will have to experiment before you arrive at your true destination, but by engaging in a little research, self-analysis and by answering the following questions - this will help you make the right choice from the get-go.
This by no means is an upsell and you are obviously free to choose where to purchase your nootropics but as a heads up it’s vital that you buy from a store that has an excellent reputation for selling high grade Nootropics that are great value for money and deliver stellar customer service.
Finding all-3 qualities can be frustrating at the start but from our own research, personal testing and valuable user reviews sourced from hundreds of feedback comments left online, we've ground the list down to just 3.
Broken down into 5 groups, we've listed 2016's latest recommended nootropics specific to their MOA as well as their standard dosage - Always consult your local physician first.

How Nootropics have helped Reddit members...
Nootropics shine in the gym IMO. Really drops the blinders on, you get this heavy focus and nice background energy boost.
3 months so far. Nootropics have given me extra confidence, and more "pep". I'm more comfortable around people and overall less anxious. Tasks that were once boring or meaningless are now entertaining. I'm finding new ways to challenge myself. I am able to work ~20% longer without feeling burnt out. Cleaning the house is now very fun, and it turns into a game of sorts. Nootropics haven't replaced coffee, but now I can appreciate coffee for the flavor and not rely on it as a way to start my day (ie, quality over quantity now).
Going on 3 years myself and have had these "upgrades" for about that long. As an introvert I've never dealt with people with such ease in the workplace and have gained much respect in the process. Working non-stop for 12 hours has never been easier but still need that caffeine (coffee) boost here and there. I should consider a break from noots but really see no reason not to at this stage.
I can sit through a class and pay attention the whole time, take good notes, and actually learn. Never been able to effectively do that.
Nootropics have helped me accomplish more in lesser time because for the first time I can focus. Being able to focus and have the mental energy to get through the entire day with motivation is something that can be hard to do when your course work requires at least 5-6 hours of deliberate practice (I define this as where I focus completely on the task at hand; at understanding, recalling and perspectivization of the knowledge that I attain) every day.
"Better Yourself - Build a Better You"
I'm working 13 hours a day all days. Graduate student. With Nootropics I can buy groceries and prepare lunches, saving literally hundreds each month. Also makes me more motivated to bike to work because I feel like charging everywhere I go. So much energy, so much focus, so little crash.
One of the most pronounced effects: anxiety reduction and lack of subsequent depressive cycles. It's really helpful to be able to think about my emotions without being completely drowned by their previously-overwhelming effects. Supplementation has helped me sleep better, wake up more easily, stay awake more easily.
Through Nootropics I unveiled that I have ADHD-PI, taking a short-lived premade-stack opened my eyes and allowed me to focus for long duration of time, almost eliminated my social anxiety and gave me control of my executive decision-making for what seemed like the first time in forever. I eventually ran out, but having seen the dramatic improvement, lead me to research cognitive supplements, leading me to me uncovering the condition which had been with me all my life. The dots connected, and the lights went off.
Decade or so with them. Started due to early onset Alzheimer's symptoms. Now my memory is above average at the baseline. Sometimes I get considerably good at remembering things (faces, numbers, facts, events) due to whatever stack I happen to be running for a period.
Various personality traits have been and are being sculpted though I've still got a ways to go before I can honestly say I'm my optimal self. Don't get me wrong, I'm very satisfied with my growth.
There's just some ripe potential to be seized.I'm always trying to better myself these days. The hobby of thoroughly researching and experimenting with nootropics helped that become a major theme in my life.
Mainly, eliminated the awful side effects from the medication that controls my sleep disorder. Any extra effects (like increased sociability and motivation) could be down to either or synergy of both? Or just being awake more of the time. One things for sure though, without themI wouldn't be able to lead the great life I do now.
Besides that, getting invested and interested in nootropics has given me a great hobby that's actually lead me to learning some basic neuroscience, something I've always wanted to do.
Just over two months. I have dramatically fewer bad days. Most days the fog and fatigue I usually feel is either lifted or much more manageable. For thinking creatively or problem solving I feel quicker and more accurate.

What fellow Nootropic user's say:
Very, very good - Congrats.
"Awesome guide - Thanks Rob!."
Nootropics increased my social ease in crowds, groups, and especially work situations with bosses. Always wary before the boss or answering questions in a work group, now I speak up, more involved and feel they have reduced my general anxiety, plus, gave me a greater confidence overall. This effect remains with me, even without it. I used to sometimes loose track of the point I was trying to make. Now this never happens.

I've been taking nootropics in the morning on and off with a strong coffee. I definitely feel a difference. A lot more motivation and less anxiety, also a strange visual sensation where I tend to see a lot more detail in things. There does seem to be a tension that I get but it feels like a "drive" rather than an anxiety if that makes any sense. I've been a long time user of supplements so for me the best things that have worked are Zinc + Vitamin B6 + a good multivitamin + caffiene + nootropics.

Yes. Many people are skeptical when they first hear about nootropics but I can tell you first hand they absolutely do work.
Not all nootropics operate the same way and everyone’s brain chemistry is different. Most people have to try a few different nootropics before they find the one or ones that that work best for them, but ultimately they do work, one hundred percent.
You will have to check with your countries laws first but to highlight just one country lets focus on the U.S.
"The legality of a certain substance has to do with whether or not it is a scheduled or controlled substance under federal or state law.
Prescription drugs, for example, are considered controlled substances and depending on their particular status will have a different schedule associated with them.
For the most part, Nootropics like Piracetam, Aniracetam, Oxiracetam, Alpha GPC, CDP Choline, Noopept, Adrafinil, Phenibut and almost all others are not scheduled and therefore not considered controlled substances in the USA.
This means there are no limits to possession and it is legal to use and own these compounds without any restrictions for personal consumption."
