Many nootropics share similar mechanisms of action by enhancing increased communication between neurons, helping to balance neurotransmitter levels or by promoting brain cell health. They may help improve energy metabolism in your neurons, support neuroplasticity, or even stimulate the growth of new neurons and synapses. Some, such as L-Theanine show effects of vasodilation which means they increase the blood flow to your brain. This supplies your brain with more oxygen, nutrients, and glucose – the primary energy source used by the brain during long periods of focus.
The brain requires an immense amount of energy to perform its function, sustain consciousness and to pay attention to your external environment. Even though the brain is only 2% of your body weight, it constitutes 20% of your energy expenditure. Performing mental exercises, concentrating on work, learning new things and staying alert during the day all burn a lot of energy. By raising blood flow and oxygenation, you can immediately experience greater capacity for memory and focus.
