From the Movie Limitless, Bradley Cooper said “We have access to only 20% of your brain. What if you can access all of it? “

So who knows if the top student in your cohort has been taking it secretly?

Vince Cakic, from the department of psychology at the University of Sydney, said today that “Nootropics", were highly attractive to students as the pressure to succeed academically is very real.

Andy L, Analyst from P.Capital, said that:

“Students in this competitive environment are doing whatever it takes to get ahead of their peers. So is no surprise that they will resort to such methods, including and especially, in the States by the top elite students from schools such as Harvard and Stanford. Even more so in Silicon Valley"

They claimed that it makes you smarter at least to the students who are taking it on a daily basis. There are massive amount of claims that these cognitive enhancers can help boost your mental performance, however much studies are still on going before is fully understood and how it actually enhances the brain. Nevertheless the lacks of studies are not stopping these universities students from taking them.

"If someone says drink this and it can help you score well for exams. First you will laugh because it sounds ridicules but when you feel it working! You start thinking what more you can accomplish”

Dr Corneliu E. Giurgea

Now that we have seen the benefits, there must be a price to pay for consuming such brain enhancers. So what is the real cost of taking nootropics to stay ahead?

We dig deeper to the understanding of nootropics which it is coined by Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea where he says, for the substance to be a nootropics it must be able to:

1) Enhance memory and ability to learn.

2) Help the brain function under disruptive conditions

3) Protect the brain from chemical and physical assaults

4) Increase the efficacy of neuronal firing control mechanisms

5) Possess few or no side effects and be virtually non-toxic.

Sound seemingly safe but little is known about the long term side effects of such enhancers.

Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof Coffee

Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof Coffee and "biohacker" said, in summary, that he has been on it for more than a decade and has not experience any major side effects.

“Even if there were any side effects, the pros have severely outweighed the cons.”

In fact, he felt that it has improved his overall health and performance.

However, there are tight regulations on such products worldwide, especially in Singapore, as some are considered controlled drugs. So how do you get your hands on this miracle?

We thought all hopes was lost in Singapore but there is a company, 6.0 shot, that is bringing in this miracle wonder in a form of a glass shot bottle.
