Do you use some kind of nootropic to improve your brain function?

I recently started to drink reishi mushroom tea.

It’s thought that reishi mushrooms can increase levels of the neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) which is involved in learning and memory.

Reishi mushrooms are also a rich source of antioxidants, which are believed to protect the brain against damage from free radicals.

It’s only been about a week so I haven’t really noticed a big difference. I feel like I’ve been a little bit more focused when I study, but that might be just the placebo effect.

I’ll try it for a month, then I’ll quit to see if I notice a difference without it.

Are you using any nootropics that are having a beneficial effect?

Gingko is considered a nootropic, isn’t it?

I do take it, when I remember to buy it.

I’ve heard, though, that people taking anything like Aspirin have to be careful with it, because they both thin the blood a bit.

My guess is that a month might not be long enough to judge that? Maybe taking it for 2 months and stopping might be more instructive?

I didn’t know that about ginko. Thanks.

A 2 month trial is probably better than a 1 month trial. I’ll give that a shot.
