There's one thing nobody tells you in the health business. And it's simply this: taking vitamins won't make you feel any better. It may improve your health, it may quench free radicals, and it may boost your immune system, but it won't make you feel any better, except maybe psychologically. If you actually want to feel better, improve your memory, and work more energetically you need smart drugs. I'm referring to a class of natural substances that can boost brain function and mood without harmful side effects. Smart drugs, also known as Nootropics, will make you remember better, think faster, and feel better. Yes, unlike simple multivitamins, smart drugs can actually have an effect that you'll notice, often within minutes. Just to give you two examples: vinpocetine is a smart drug, and so is tea. Vinpocetine will speed up your brain by delivering more oxygen to your neurons. A cup of tea will supply Theanine, which can improve your mood. There are many other smart drugs, too many to list here. We'll talk more about this in future posts if people are interested.
