Note: I used nootropics incorrectly when writing this I meant to say anti-aging drugs instead because of this I've added some in.
If you care about maintaining your looks and health whilst delaying or even preventing the wall then you should consider Nootropics a serious investment. Nootropics are often used to improve brain function, such as Ritalin and Adderal due to the ability to improve focus, but their are nootropics drugs that target the rest of your body to fight ageing. You can have a significant advantage when your older if you look like you're in your 20 when your 40+. Nootropics can also prevent illnesses such as Dementia.
If you are on a tight budget or have any other reason not to take nootropics, like it interfering with medication you. You can try out the following:
Removing high inflammatory foods like bread and eating more foods that increase antioxidants.
keeping Vitamin B in check
Ageing is caused by oxidative stress forming, and telomere shortening and free radicals , which by caused by the mitochondria going through the respiratory system), these factors cause the body to break down faster and which than it can repair itself. the telomeres on gene endings to shorten too which shorten due to oxidative stress on mitosis(*further research needed here on telomores).
High oxidative stress can cause:
Fatigue during activity
Muscles, joints and ligaments stiffness.
Slow recovery time
Mainly used for building muscle.
Mainly found in meat
Has cognitive improving abilities
Derivative of niacin(B3)
Niacin can cause flush
Helps produce NAD+
Found in broccoli sprouts and cruciferous vegetables
Aids NPF2 pathways
May protect against certain cancers
May decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease
May be able to help treat autism and cardiovascular disease
Found in all cells
precursor enzyme to NAC+
Proven to work on rats
Rejuvenates and refills mitochondria
Clears free radicals
May improve psoriasis
Protects the liver from alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
Improves insulin resistance in older people
Helps treat peripheral artery disease
Reduces Parkinson’s disease
Improves immune system
It is naturally found in:
raw or very rare meat
unpasteurized milk and other unpasteurized dairy products
freshly-picked fruits and vegetables, such as avocado, and asparagus.
cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and bok choy
allium vegetables, such as garlic and onions
lean protein, such as fish, and chicken
unreliable due to lack of research
Very Popular. Used a lot in Silicon Valley.
Used to treat moderate to severe confusion in Alzheimer's patients. It does not cure Alzheimer’s disease instead it improves memory.
It blocks glutamate which is linked to Alzheimers.
Check this link for precautions.
N-Acetylcysteine (converted to cysteine)
Classed as double anti-oxidant
The N-Acetyl of N-Acetylcysteine makes it bio available and stable.
It Chelates (attaches) to harmful metals
Increases Glutathione. Glutathione does the following:
Maintain cell function
Protects cells from free radicals.
Enable for a healthy immune system
Regulates cell proliferation (rapid cell growth)
Effective for supporting liver detoxification.
Boosting immune system (on a 600mg daily dose)
Treating degenerative diseases like Parkinson's Disease.
There is evidence proving NAC can treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression. It shouldn't be used as primary source of medical treatment.
NAC improve impulse control. (fight addiction)
Thins snot, which makes pathogens easier to expel.
Take 300mg-600mg daily. for anti-aging benefits.
600mg-1g for athletic + recovery purposes.
Turmeric (focusing on Curcumin)
Mainly used for anti-inflammatory properties.
Low absorption rate when taken alone. Use products that contain Bioperine or black pepper extract.
Found in grapes and wine.
Reduces risk to diseases
Evidence for improving cardiovascular health
improves insulin sensitivity
supports cell replication
improves biomarkers of the heart & brain.
Can help enzyme sirtuins.
Can be used with curcumin to reduce inflammation and osteoarthritis.
ALA (Alpha-lipoic Acid)
Fatty acid useful for metabolism. (it slows down as we age)
Can be undigested in multiple ways:
Vaping (Highly recommend this way)
Chewing gum(when used correctly)
Lozenges (when properly taken, do not chew)
Nicotine patches (no cognitive benefits are made using this method)
Lasts 2-4 hours.
Increases HGH and works as an aromatase inhibitor.
Lower risk of inflammation and neuro-degenerative diseases
Acts as an appetite suppressant
Decreases bone mass
Unsuitable for pregnant women
High toxicity when overdosed.
fatal single dosage is 30-60 mg in adults and 10 mg in children.
One vape vial will contain around 20mg of nicotine
Increases reflexes and physical performance
Has been shown to repair DNA
Can disrupt the circadian rhythm
Protects against cataracts .
Reduces depression (2-4 cups of coffee a day for four weeks)
Don't consume more than 100mg a day
Classed as a true nootropic
NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide)
NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6359187/. (Nmn is related to nicotine Nicotinamide Riboside.)
NMN is found in cruciferous vegetables.
(Nmn is related to nicotine Nicotinamide Riboside.)
Helps in nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) biosynthesis sirtuins
Not considered a form of b3, Nicotinamide Riboside is.
Not a vitamin.
Highly experimental, it has few human clinical studies.
NR is the safer option.
NMR is proven to treat Alzheimers
Fights free radicals
Prevents Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury. (Blood cells not regenerating cardicular cells) when taken at 500mg a day
Evidence towards viable treatments for diabetes.
precursor for NAD+
I would prioritise buying NAC in the list given but they all have similar results. Take nootropics 30mins after food or 1hour past medication. Please consult with a doctor is any substances listed interfere with medication.
To prevent drug tolerance, randomise your routine. Frequently change the following:
The rate of time you take off
Substitute different nootropics that do the same thing
