In making your choice between natural and laboratory-synthesized supplements what will you take into account above all? For sure you will try to find balance between healing effect and possible risks. Any drug in practice has the potential to cause unwanted effects, but still natural compounds typically pose a much lower risk. Except reduced risk of side effects, natural remedies could be even more effective in dealing with protracted chronic conditions and have a positive influence on the entire organism, which means that the body’s natural healing process for treating various diseases will be activated.
The same is applicable to nootropics: if you’re interested in the idea of “smart drugs” but want (or have a reason) to avoid synthetic products, there are many outstanding all-natural options to enhance physical&mental work capacity, increase resistance to stress and improve memory without disturbing normal biological functions.
Many herbs we now recognize as natural nootropics date back millennia. They have not only withstood the test of time but also the competition from pharmaceutical products. Researchers still continue to learn the unique mechanisms of phytoremedies action that enable those herbs to be effectively used as cognitive enhancers. A lot of such healing plants grow in the area of majestic Siberia and especially the Altay Region, known for its abundant plant diversity and centuries-long traditional herbalism practices. By the way, cognitive enhancement properties of most of the nootropic herbs were clinically-proved: reportedly in 1960s soviet cosmonauts were prescribed brain herb extract as a mood-enhancer to help them withstand their physically and mentally demanding missions. Since that time natural supplements have been gaining in popularity among sportsmen all over the world as their usage helps to enhance physical work capacity and maintain general health during long, draining training sessions. These remedies can act just as effective as their lab-produced equivalents but they don`t harm the health and aren`t considered to be dope.
Although each phytonootropic can improve mental & physical performance and serve as a powerful source of natural health, different herbs have slightly different benefits and action emphases. Thus, it is possible to choose the one (or a set) that matches your symptoms and goals the best. Another helpful aspect is a variety of accessible dosage forms: pills, capsules, liquid extracts, tinctures (it’s no secret that correct selection of dosage form is already halfway to success).
All the pharmaceutical-grade herbal nootropics and adaptogen tinctures are 100% natural, organic, non-GMO, and have track records of reliability for a broad audience:

Please note that some of the herbal nootropics sold in Russian market are considered supplements, while others considered pharmaceutical drugs. Here you will find only products that are regulated as a drugs and are tested for the presence of an active ingredient, unlike supplements. The products here are also come in the form of tinctures, which means that they are likely to have higher bioavailability due to ethanol presence.
