The not-so-smart nootropics approach.
But when it comes to nootropics and improving cognitive function, her approach of throwing everything that "works" into a stack is less than optimal.
The problem is that this shake is a mash-up of herbs and mushrooms that resembles the nootropic equivalent of a Long Island Iced Tea. It’s sort of like, “throw everything in there, we’ll feel something!”
We prefer a more scientific approach - one that is based on metabolic pathways, research and provides a subtle, predictable, repeatable cognitive boost that improves performance on the day it's taken and provides long-term neuroprotection.
