If you don’t already know, different types of nootropics function in different ways. Some types of nootropics have been in existence for over a decade now with others discovered over the last few years. For those who do not have good knowledge about nootropics, this informative piece will reveal to you the various groups which you do not know.

Getting down to business, here are the seven types of nootropics that are widely used today:

Racetams

[/text-with-icon]

Racetams is arguably the most common and widely used nootropics. Piracetems which is the first ever nootropics falls under the Racetams group. Other popular racetams are Aniracetam, Pramiracetam, and Oxiracetam. Phenylpiracetam and Nefiracetam which were recently developed also fall under this group of nootropics.

Racetams are used to increase cognitive ability. It stimulates the Acetylcholine receptors and this process results in an increase in memory, motivation, learning, focus and other important cognitive function.

Racetams also combine with the Ampakine category to stimulate the Glutamic receptor activity. This, in turn, leads to various nootropic benefits which are yet to be determined and cannot be measured.

Ampakines

[/text-with-icon]

The Ampakines are amongst the new and interesting category of nootropics developed recently. Glutamic activity is essential for cognitive function. However, Racetams do not have the same level of Glutamate activity as the newly developed Sunifram and Unifram.

Ampakines are just dropping in and have not be proved safe or rigorously tested in the medical field.

There are known for a high change in excitotoxicity which is a factor on its own. The level of excitotoxicity varies between different Ampakines so it is always adviced that it is properly evaluated before taken as it can have negative health effects if used wrongly.

Choline and Acetylcholine Intermediates

[/text-with-icon]

Choline and Acetylcholine intermediates come in several types but mostly have similar functions. These supplements increase the level of Acetylcholine in the brain when consumed. It is worthy to note that there are different types of choline/acetylcholine and some types are more effective than others.

They are even cheaper sources like the Choline Bitartrate which usually do not provoke reasonable nootropic effects when consumed alone but can be consumed with Racetams to yield more effects.

There are more advanced Acetylcholine intermediates like the Centrophenoxine, Alpha GPC or the Citicoline. These supplements cause more noticeable effects when consumed alone.

Also, it is worthy to note that Acetylcholine intermediates have fewer chances of causing side effects and works best when stacked with Racetams.

Synthetic B-Vitamin Derived Nootropics

The Ampakines are amongst the new and interesting category of nootropics developed recently. Glutamic activity is essential for cognitive function. However, Racetams do not have the same level of Glutamate activity as the newly developed Sunifram and Unifram.

Natural Nootropics

[/text-with-icon]

This category of nootropics comes from an extensive list of natural herbs and roots. They are known to be very effective. It is true that some natural nootropics may not give the desired result like the artificially synthesized categories, but there are some of them that are very effective.

Smart Drugs

[/text-with-icon]

The last on the list are smart drugs. Smart drugs are the most misused and abused types of nootropics. A lot of people with little or no understanding of how nootropics functions, usually abuse smart drugs in the quest for quick action.

Substances like Adderall which are amphetamine-based medication fits into this category. Most smart drugs are illegal and medically not safe.So it is medically advised you stay away from this category and only take nootropics that are legal and safe.

Peptide Nootropics

[/text-with-icon]

The Peptide nootropics are the fascinating category of all kinds of nootropics. This category seems to be always evolving.  Russian scientists have the most interest in this area and have developed almost all the types of nootropic Peptides you will find on the market today.

All the types of Peptide nootropics share the same similarity of having some affinity with peptides. Noopept is a clear example of Peptide that falls into this category, and it is a derivative of nootropic peptide. Cerebrolysin, another Peptide, is derived from pig proteins. Semax is also a hexapeptide derived from corticotrophin.

The major downside associated with nootropic peptides are in their route of administration. The easiest consumable peptide is Noopept( swallowed orally). While Semax must be taken through the nose for it to have maximum effects. Cerebrolysin which is the most effective nootropic on this list has the hardest route of administration. You have to inject it for maximum effects, and this is a turn off for most nootropics users.
