6 nootropics that make your brain limitless

Do you remember the movie “Limitless”?

You know, the one where Bradley Cooper played a down-on-his-luck writer who started taking an experimental drug that allowed him to use 100 percent of his brain. He wrote brilliant books in days. Learned new languages. Made a killing in the stock market.

Unfortunately, it didn’t end well for Bradley Cooper’s character in the movie, because he took a dangerous and addictive drug that ended up having serious side effects.

But what if you could boost your brain power in a less dramatic and dangerous way? That would be pretty cool, right?

You can. And a lot of people are already doing it. They’re using nootropics… also known as “smart drugs.” These are natural and synthetic substances people take to improve their cognitive abilities.

Now, people who take nootropics can get extreme. Sometimes they take synthetic drugs, which might not be your cup of tea. Or they take a ton of natural substances simultaneously or in high doses, which can get dangerous too.

But it’s completely possible to join the nootropics craze in a moderate way. You can try safe and effective natural substances that make you happier, sharper, more alert and help you live your best life.

Here are a few proven nootropics that could boost your brain power and make you feel limitless (or close to it):
