Frequently Asked Questions

What are nootropics?

Nootropics are substances that support brain function and promote mental performance. Sometimes people refer to them as "smart drugs," “cognitive enhancers,” or the "limitless pill." They include various foods, supplements, and drugs. Healthy individuals may use nootropics to improve memory, learning, focus, mood, concentration, processing, motivation, and attention. Aging individuals may also use them to maintain productive cognition. Read more →

How does Thrivous develop nootropics?

Science has enabled us to formulate nootropics that support brain function and promote mental performance beyond what can be achieved through traditional lifestyle choices alone. Thrivous nootropics contain ingredients at concentrations and amounts based on high levels of evidence for notable effect from peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies on humans. Because science is never finished, we monitor and review new studies, consult with our advisor board of physicians and scientists, and update our nootropics accordingly. Read more →

Are Thrivous nootropics safe?

Yes. Thrivous nootropics are safe for most people. All of our ingredients come from substances in the human diet, such as vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, and enzymes. People worldwide have used these substances for centuries to support brain function and promote mental performance. In the United States, all of our ingredients are legal, and the FDA accepts them as dietary supplement components under provisions of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994. Please consult a physician before and during use of dietary supplements.

Does Thrivous verify the quality of its nootropics?
