What Is a Nootropic?

What Is a Nootropic?

Nootropic as a word itself might sound like something from outer space, but they actually are much more real than any green guys in flying saucers. Even an average nootropic can have high potential to be a game-changer for your daily routine.

But what makes them different? Which ones are the best? And if I really want to get better focus, be more productive, or crush my workouts, which one is the best for me?

Our team at Troomy's taken a deeper look into what sets each nootropic apart from the rest, which ones to try, and how medicinal mushrooms have been making huge strides as of late.

Overview of Nootropics

What are They Created to Do?

Think of them like food for your brain. When you eat regularly and stay consistent with your diet, you easily can be a whole lot more effective throughout your day.

It just depends on what foods you're giving to your brain, as each nootropic can have a little different focus. They are naturally or synthetically blended to create better productivity, higher functionality, minimize mental strain, and other impactful factors to how successful you are in a given day.

Are They Safe?

´╗┐The majority are completely safe in moderation. You just have to be wary about what kind of companies you get them from. Reliable, trusted brands can give you high-quality results in your day easily.

What Nootropics do I Use Today?


Caffeine's a classic and highly popular one. You probably get most of yours in coffee or energy drinks.

When caffeine effectively blocks your adenosine receptors for your brain function, you start to feel less tired. Then, after a few hours in the afternoon, those receptors start to be able to block less effectively, which causes crash. 

This is especially true with sugary drinks and foods as well.


´╗┐These nootroopics are highly popular in fitness, and anyone that does weight training consistently. They can be huge for gaining muscle quickly and recovering well when you're lifting heavy.

You'll see these supplements generally popped into pre-workout for nootropic use. However, they're expanding their usage every day.

´╗┐´╗┐Health and Wellness as a Foundation in Your Daily Routine

Sleeping Well

´╗┐Having great sleep is an essential element of your wellness health. You have to try to get eight hours every night, and especially get restful sleep. This comes through cutting down screen time ahead of when you go to sleep, doing yoga, and avoiding eating too late.


´╗┐Getting plenty of exercise routinely is a surefire way to keep yourself on track. When you push yourself consistently and even just get a run, a lifting session, or a good walk in every other day, you're going to see a drastic change in how your routine usually goes. This includes:

  • Better moods
  • Lasting energy
  • Stronger habits┬á
  • Accountability

Diet and Nutrition

´╗┐Your diet is going to impact your daily function just as much as all of these other components. Someone that doesn't eat well is going to have trouble sleeping, exercising, and getting through the day altogether.

Chances are, you are going to have to meal plan a bit to make sure you stay on track. Just having money for lunch every day at the office or at school isn't going to help you much. It'll get the job done, but it's expensive and not always the best nutritional value.

For each meal, you want to construct your values around having a starch, a veggie, and protein.

Nootropics and Supplements

´╗┐Let's face it. Everyone's missing one of these parts of their routine, or it's at least been lacking a bit in what they do daily.┬á

What Kind of New Nootropics can I Try?


While it's technically a nootropic, this one isn't recommended for most. It has been linked to adding speed to your motor function and giving you a better sense of alertness. However, it's highly addictive and can even be lethal in doses that are high enough.

Be careful if you want to get started with nicotine and make sure you acclimate yourself with potential risks it presents.

Brain Boosting Blends

´╗┐Some nootropics are strategically blended synthetically to create higher brain function and improved performance with productivity.

This can include medicinal mushroom coffee (not the kind that'll make you trip out!), creative caffeinated drinks, brain-food snacks, and more.

In particular, mushroom gummies are a new group of nootropic that's really set itself apart.

Mushroom Gummies

´╗┐Mushroom gummies are a fantastic route for getting you quality daily nutrients without any of the hassle.┬áDespite their new rise to popularity.┬ámedicinal mushrooms have been recognized in the┬átraditional Chinese medicine space for┬áthousands of years.

Medicinal mushrooms are recognized for being linked to boosting brain function, regulating the immune system, elevating alertness and productivity, easing stress, and more. 

On top of this functional support, they carry a ton of inherent benefits over other nootropics as well.

What Sets Mushroom Gummies Apart?

Fruity Flavors, Almost Zero Sugar

´╗┐Having almost zero sugar in your gummies is a shock for most who try a gummy they thought would have an earthy, natural taste. Instead, tangy, fruity flavors are perfect for your daily routine.

 High in Vitamins and Minerals

´╗┐As a foundation for your nutrition, you can get some quality vitamin values that you might be lacking a bit with your current diet.

Shelf Life

The shelf life of a fresh mushroom is a lot shorter than the average gummy blend. This is due to the extract being tightly compacted and kept primed for a quality daily supplement. For example, Troomy Nootropics bottles of mushroom gummies has 60-count gummies. 


On top of lasting a while, you get your best bang for your buck with gummies as well. Taking the mushroom extract put into each gummy can have even just one gummy get you through the day in some cases, while raw mushrooms take prep time, cooking, and have to last in order to have a similar impact. Save money and also put your best foot forward with mushroom gummies in the New Year.

Luckily, it's easier than ever to get started.
