“… but will they make my skin fall off?"
You’re probably already familiar with some nootropics—even if you didn’t realize it! Caffeine and L-Theanine, for example, are two nootropics that can be found in green tea and are very safe (when consumed responsibly, of course). The amount of each of these in tea is relatively low, but when combined at the proper dosages, they improve focus and alertness without the jitters and crash that you would experience with coffee.
