Nootropics have always been a feature in pre workouts – but more emphasis has been placed on nootropics nowadays and for good reason – they work and improve the experience of your pre workout.

Benefits of nootropics:

– Increased Productivity

– Fights anxiety and depression

– Brain health

There are a bunch of nootropics out on the market, some are derived from mushrooms, some are manufactured synthetically and others we produce naturally. Some of the more common and popular nootropics are:

– Choline Bitartrate: A common nootropic as it enhances cognitive function, which makes it a staple in most pre workouts. Dosing should be no less than 500mg to get the best effects.

L-Tyrosine: A tried and true nootropic that greatly boosts mood and focus. Dosing again should start from atleast 500mg.

-Alpha GPC : A more bio available form off choline that crosses the blood – brain barrier. Look for a dosing from at least 400mg onwards as the standardization is usually 50%.


Noopept is a peptide derived nootropic. It has the potential to enhance cognitive function, memory and focus. Dosing from 10mg onwards

– Lions Mane

A mushroom that has been getting great traction due to it’s nootropic effects. Higher doses of Lions Mane may boost cognitive function and help repair nerve damage. Dosage should be no less than 500mg daily in order to potentially get the benefits.

– Huperzine A

Huperzine A may enhance memory and may slow down cognitive decline. Dosing from 75-150mcg.

Dosing is always a very much overlooked aspect when it comes to nootropics, in essence higher dosing usually equates to better results, for the most part when it comes to nootropics.
