According to a study in Frontiers in Nutrition, the multi-ingredient dietary nootropic may enhance cognitive performance, including concentration.
The research was conducted by the PROFITH CTS-977 research group from the University of Granada (UGR).
“This is a randomized, triple-blinded, placebo-controlled, crossover trial,” researchers explained in their journal report. “In total, 26 young healthy adults (50% women; 24.9 ± 3.3 years old) ingested 10 g of a dietary multi-ingredient nootropic or placebo (maltodextrin) in a randomized order.”
“After 30 min of the ingestion, participants performed a battery of cognitive performance tests to measure the processing speed, inhibitory control, working memory, cognitive flexibility, creativity, and verbal fluency. The emotional status was assessed through questionnaires, and HR and HRV were measured using a heart rate monitor.”
Nootropic was demonstrated to induce significant effects with regards to cognitive performance compared to a placebo. Nootropic was found to enhance cognitive performance involving processing speed, spatial working memory, inhibitory control, and cognitive flexibility.
“An acute ingestion of a dietary multi-ingredient nootropic enhances cognitive performance in comparison with placebo without negatively influencing heart rate or heart rate variability in young healthy adults,” researchers affirmed in their findings.
