Nootropics – you may have heard of them.
They are somewhat of a trend right now and for good reason.
We have health supplements used to improve general health such as your multivitamins, essential minerals or anti-oxidants.
We have sports supplements to improve your physical performance which can include amino acids, pre-workout formulas and protein.
But now, there is a new, emerging category called Nootropics. These are supplements to improve and support your cognitive performance and brain health.
Why is this so important?
We live in a super-fast paced society where productivity and performance are more valued than ever.
We have an aging population, and thus neurodegenerative diseases are on the rise.
We also have stress, anxiety and depression becoming rampant due to the modern lives we lead.
This leads us all back to one thing – the brain.
It is so crucial that we do what we can to support our brains to be healthy, happy and effective each day.
Nootropics are just one piece of the puzzle to reach this goal.
Let’s take a deep dive!
We see them as a 𝐦𝐨𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐧 𝐰𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐡𝐧𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐲 to help support our most important asset, our brains.
A category of amino acids, potent phytonutrients and plant compounds, medicinal mushrooms, caffeine-like stimulants and more.
Some are precursors and building blocks for neurotransmitters such as Dopamine, Serotonin or Acetylcholine.
Some bind to specific receptors in cells and neurons, inhibiting the reuptake of these neurotransmitters and thus increasing concentrations of them in the brain. Some may increase blood flow to the brain.
Some may boost key neuroproteins such as BDNF or NGF - these are important for the repair, maintenance and growth of neurons and nerve cells. Some can be used to improve memory.
Some can be used to increase focus. Some can be used to reduce stress, and improve mood.
Whichever way you look at, we are consuming atoms arranged in very specific ways (compounds and molecules) that once ingested, are able to modulate our brains and our bodies to achieve specific outcomes and improvements.
Though research is still in its infancy, nootropics hold so much promise.
We must keep on advocating for them and push for new research to be published.
Why? Its easy.
The implications for these compounds are so huge. From everything to improving our productivity and ability to do deep, meaningful work to preventing and staving off neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons.
Even managing depression, anxiety and stress through natural compounds as opposed to just pharmaceutical drugs.
These are some of the possibilities and areas which nootropics may help support over the coming years.
You may be a uni student or working a demanding corporate job and looking to boost your focus and productivity each day.
You may be a busy parent looking to destress and wind down at the end of the day.
You may be getting older and wanting to protect your brain from cognitive decline and wanting to stave off neurodegenerative disease.
You may have a fuzzy and forgetful memory, and you want to ensure you can retain as much knowledge as possible.
You may be a gamer or looking to get into esports and you need a better reaction time or want to stay more alert and awake throughout the night.
For each of these unique situations, there are a multitude of potent, natural nootropics you can look into to help support you.
I like to think we are always about 3-5 years behind the U.S in most regards.
Nootropics are still quite niche and underground in Australia, but the community that exists here are SUPER passionate about them.
I love reading a lot of the posts that go on in the Nootropics FB groups here. It's all about people wanting to learning more about how to support and optimise their brain to achieve better outcomes.
But breaking into the mainstream audience is another thing entirely.
The SINGULAR reason nootropics aren't huge here in Australia yet, in my opinion, is education.
We simply aren't educated enough on what nootropics are and how they can benefit the modern Australian.
This is why a lot of the content we put out is educational. We want to help educate the Australian consumer as to the benefits and promise of these fascinating compounds.
We are only one of very few PURE nootropics companies. Most other supplement companies here are just adding a few nootropics here and there into their existing health or sports supplements.
But our sole purpose as a business and startup is to help accelerate the progress and acceptance of Nootropics into Australia and to help everyone optimise their brain wellness using these natural compounds as well as other strategies.
We think we will get to mainstream popularity very soon, but for now, we have a lot of work to do, and a lot of educating to do before most people know what Nootropics are.
This brings us to Enhance, the latest nootropic by Neuratech..
Enhance is one of few, super high quality, nootropic products available in Australia right now.
Enhance is a daily nootropic stack, that has been formulated to support long term brain health, memory and learning.
Enhance is caffeine free, filler free and vegan friendly. Its just 2 capsules per day, 5 days per week to help support your brain.
It contains a number of natural ingredients to that have been shown, through clinical studies to support various aspects of brain health and memory. These ingredients are:
While some products and nootropics focus on giving you a short term boost and crash, Enhance was designed to support your cognition and brain over the long term and isn’t a short term gimmick.
Enhance can be taken every morning with your greens or breakfast or even stacked with your coffee or caffeinated beverage of choice to help you power out some work through the day.
Enhance is useful for anyone wanting to support their brain in the long term and provide the basis for higher brain health and performance.
In particular, if you want to support your memory, reduce brain fog and support learning – then this is the product for you.

You hear the word neurotransmitters pretty often. But do you actually know what they are?
Let's go over some theory.
Neurotransmitters are simply the body's chemical messengers. They come in the form of molecules used by the nervous system to transmit messages between neurons (e.g. nerve cells) or from neurons to muscles.
Calm Nootropic is first and foremost designed as a world-class sleep supplement. We do this by both increasing the quality of sleep, reducing the time taken to fall asleep (known as sleep latency) and also reducing the amount of awakenings throughout the night.
Calm includes 3 key ingredients which act to support sleep quality.
A big outcome for Calm Nootropic was to create a delicious product that is capable of reducing the noisy brain, increasing feelings of calm and improving mood at the end of a busy day.
Increasing "calming brainwaves" was done by adding 300mg of L-Theanine and improving mood is achieved primarily with the addition of 800mg of L-Tryptophan.
