Nootropic and the future

Posted : July 27, 2012 | Comments : Views : 149427


Vitamin supplements and popular nootropics substances - for the last years it has been common knowledge that vitamin supplementation can play a roll in maintaining and improving overall health and well-being. Today's pill market is saturated with powders, tablets, capsules and liquids - all created toward one goal: lightening your wallet and emptying your bank account.

How much do you know about vitamins as a nootropic? Can you tell fake from fantastic, extortion from expertise? It is a safe assumption that a bulk of consumers are aware of the commplace vitamins and minerals packed into vitamin tablets; names such as: Vitamin A, Zinc, Magnesium and so forth. Is such knowledge a warrant for making educated and informed decisions affecting your health either positively or negatively for the rest of your lives? The answer is a resounding no.

Bioavailabity is a terminology you will see used frequently on smartnootropics; it means essentially at what often, or % is a given chemical absorbed by a living organism, in our case the human body. Did you know that oxide compounds are inorganic and lack significant bioavailability? Reach for your multi-vitamin now and check if they contain the following: Zinc oxide, magnesium oxide, choline bitartrate, potassium chloride - all examples of cheap mass-produced ingredients which sit at the bottom of the bioavailable pile; superior examples of these compounds would be the organic Zinc citrate molecule, or the bioavailable choline citrate compound.

Are the long and short-term health implications of consuming large quantities of inorganic vitamin compounds fully understood? Simply put: no. Did you know that consuming too much magnesium may damage your kidneys? and that high doses of vitamin A commonly found in vitamin tablets may be carcinogenic? Or that large daily doses of Vitamin E may decrease rather than increase average life-span and increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer?

I implore everyone reading this article, thoroughly research any product you purchase before you do so. Just because it's sold, doesn't mean it's safe.

Just because it's sold, doesn't mean it's safe. So aim carefull and monitor each purchase without allowing the urge to spend and for self-modification to rule your decision making apparatus.

Safety is paramount and as always, you should consult with your GP or local doctor before undertaking any new vitamin, supplement or exercise regime. I would specifically recommend asking them to monitor your liver enzymes, kidney creatinine levels and protein output. The supplement market is exactly that, a business, and despite your preconceptions, your wallets and not your best interests are paramount in the minds of retail companies looking to push upon you the next "big buzz" vitamin, herb or nootropic agent.

Traditional solutions tend to be the best, that through anecdotal evidence, one is able to establish the longterm health implications and benefits of various preparations. This is why supplements such as ginseng, green tea and fish oil should always be amongst the first ingredients you consider in your quest for self-furtherment. Following these are supplements such as zinc, acetyl l - carnitine, milk thistle, lecithin and b vitamins which all have a long standing safety record and could help tweak your lifestyle in a favourable and quite possibly noticeable way.

Thanks for reading, remember, stay safe, don't take risks with your body... it's the only one you'll ever have, still try a nootropic
