There is a Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) of essential vitamins and nutrients that we have been given. It is easy to find out that if you are a female over 14 years of age and not nursing, you need 22.4IU (15mg) of Vitamin E and if you are nursing, you need 28.4IU (19mg).
However, we are all made differently and do not all fit under a nice bell curve. The RDAs are good guidelines, however the actual tendency when taking vitamins and nutrients is for one person to need more or less of something and another person will be on the other end of the spectrum for the same ingredient. That is one reason why the healthcare industry is so huge. We do our best to live according to the guidelines thinking that is exactly what we need and not take the time or spend the energy to understand what is best for us personally. But I digress . . .
What ingredient is needed to make a best nootropic? Instead of answering the question of what ingredients make the best nootropic, I want to finish this blog by sharing that when searching for the best nootropic product, looking for any single ingredient is not as important as looking for ingredients in the same product that work well together. When they are in the same product, it shows that the product owner is looking to ensure you get the product benefit you would expect.
Like a weight loss product where you want ingredients that increase your metabolic rate, ingredients to boost your metabolism, ingredients to increase fat oxidation, ingredients to regulate fat burning, and ingredients to minimize after meal glucose surges, the best nootropic product would have ingredients that cross the blood brain barrier to enhance cerebral blood flow to increase oxygenation and glucose utilization, ingredients that reduce or deactivate free-radicals and protect against stress related effects, ingredients that enhance nerve and neuron transmission, ingredients that protect nerve cells, and ingredients that help the body produce and maintain new cells. If there is also an ingredient that helps fight off the negative effects that some prescription medications give, all the better.
As you can see, there is a lot to think about and I hope that we have helped clear out some of the noise around what makes a product best versus what makes a product just good. You know where you are at and where you want to be from a health perspective. A good diet and some exercise are a great place to start. A great diet, a mix of exercises to include cardio, and a mix of supplemental ingredients delivered in the most effective format to give an added health boost… well, nothing is promised, however with that routine, at least you will look and feel your best!
We wish you all the best in your search for the best nootropic formulation of ingredients and most effective product for you. Our wish is that you age well!
With Respect & Healthy Regards!
