When To Use Nootropics

If you’re new to nootropics, you’re probably wondering how and when to use these little power packs. The answer is simple - you can use nootropics whenever you like. That’s the best part about opting for natural products!

So, while you can technically use nootropics for any occasion, there are a few times when they will benefit you most.

Work

Depending on your role, you may find work to be mentally (or physically) taxing. If you notice yourself falling victim to the 3pm crash, you may benefit from some supplements. Especially, if you're hustling from home.

Try to time your nootropics wisely. For a week, track how you’re feeling hour to hour during the workday. You’ll likely notice some patterns. Remember, no results are instantaneous. If you figure out that you usually run out of energy or focus in the early afternoon, try adding some IndeZone Energy to your lunchtime routine. Timing it right and taking your supplements early enough can help you avoid that daily energy crash altogether! 

School

Whether you’re taking classes online or on campus, school is demanding. Usually, highschool, college, and university classes range from one to three hours in length. Unfortunately, the human brain hasn’t quite figured out how to concentrate for this long. Evolution, where you at?!

Give yourself a break if you feel a little less than enthusiastic past the first hour of class. And, for those with back-to-back classes, you may need some help. On those longer days, try to avoid the energy drinks and go for something that will actually help you focus - cognitive enhancers. Nootropics may not replace a good night’s sleep and study habits, but they’ll definitely help you concentrate during your classes. Take a dose when you’re starting to get fidgety or lose focus. 

(E)Sports

Your brain needs to function alongside your body when it comes to sports. Being physically prepared for a game when your head isn’t in it can be one of the most frustrating experiences. Yes, esports players, this applies to you too!

There is no harm in supplementing your game. Nootropics are safe and natural. Our bodies are limited by our minds. Motivation, focus, and problem-solving are just as important as strength and endurance. To physically perform, you need to mentally perform first. 

About forty five minutes to an hour before your next game, take a capsule of Indezone Energy. Your game will thank you for it!

To Tackle a Slump

We’ve all been there. Sometimes, you fall into a rut and can’t get back out. It’s part of life but it’s best to get back up as soon as you can. 

Productivity feels great. When you can’t focus, you can’t get anything done. That fact alone can be discouraging. And, if your brain isn’t performing to the standard you would like it to, your mental health can also be impacted.

Taking care of yourself and crawling out of a slump can look different for everyone. If you’re the type of person that thrives on productivity, a boost could be just what you need. Work nootropics into your comeback plan to give your brain some extra fuel and support. You’ll be back on track before you know it.

The Benefits of Daily Dosing

So, this doesn’t exactly answer the question of when you should use nootropics. But, it’s worth mentioning, because cognitive enhancers have a lot of great long-term benefits too.

We’ve listed a bunch of the short-term benefits and uses of nootropics, but here are some of our favourite long term benefits:

  • Long-term memory improvement 
  • Mood and emotional regulation 
  • Increased brain health and neuroprotection
  • Weight maintenance
  • Reduction in stress hormones (corticosterone)
  • Slowing the process of cellular aging

There are a ton of different types of nootropic combinations and ingredients. Depending on the product you choose, your results will be different. These are just some of the benefits based on Indezone Energy's ingredients list. Do your research and don't be afraid to give yourself a boost!
