  • I've been taking Gingko Baloba for quite a while. I think it helps me have a clearer mind but can't just turn it off at will so am not sure. Am taking Alpha GPC and at home is another one I think is the one Nanook is taking but I can't remember !  Maybe it doesn't work ? LOL

         Nootropics are substances which enhance mental functionality without causing harm.  They may be natural substances, extracts from natural substances, modified natural substances, or wholly synthetic chemicals.  To be considered a nootropic they must be free from harmful or dangerous side effects.
