Nootropics may seem like a godsend to someone who has never considered the idea of ‘smart drugs.’ They sure did to me. However, a cautious person will naturally be wary of the flipside of the coin – are there side effects? Are these substances healthy? These are, of course, natural questions that anyone concerned for their personal safety should ask. A lot of these smart drugs – more commonly known as nootropics – are fairly new to the market, and don’t have a significant body of research surrounding them. Some nootropics, however, have gained a following for their reputed benefits without displaying any negative effects.
