Nootropics are also called "smart drugs" and "cognitive enhancers." The theory holds that they help you think better, remember more, and be more alert, creative, focused, and motivated.
Whether you're near the end of your life and suffering from memory loss, in your middle years and needing to stay alert during that afternoon slump, or a college student needing to enhance your memory, nootropics can help.
They can also help people with ADHD, anxiety, and confused thought processes.
We believe in them so much here at VALI that we sell a few supplements that research and word of mouth are saying help improve your thinking processes.
You may have heard that nicotine, modafinil (Provigil), methamphetamine or Adderall are nootropics . They are considered to be smart drugs, but we do not touch them here at VALI.
All of our products are found in nature, whether produced by the human body or outside of it. And VALI supplements are third-party tested for purity and are also made in the United States.
The three main nootropic supplements that VALI sells are Time-Release Caffeine, Neuro Force, and Caffeine and L-Theanine. We explore each supplement in detail below, with links so you can buy them if you want.
To break down some of these ingredients:
Our Amazon page on the Caffeine & L-Theanine supplement  reads:
We recently published a blog detailing some of L-Theanine's benefits [https://www.valiup.com/blogs/vali-blog/l-theanine-benefits-people-in-several-ways]:
"We've always known that caffeine has cognitive-enhancing effects, but its particular effects on strengthening memories and making them resistant to forgetting has never been examined in detail in humans… We report for the first time a specific effect of caffeine on reducing forgetting over 24 hours.”
The supplement delivers an even low dose of calming energy without the high jitters and low crash you get from other caffeinated products like caffeine gum, strips, shots, gummies, and energy drinks.
It’s slow released over a delayed time period giving your body a natural calm and smooth boost feeling for all day productive work. Use as a nootropic stack or pair with caffeine free supplements or pre workout powder for an extra energy booster.
The take-away from all this is that nootropics can make you feel better mentally, improve how well you think and remember, help you be more creative, and enhance alertness. Some medical practitioners are using them to treat dementia and memory loss, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and to stay awake when needed.

Beginning an exercise program can be daunting, especially if you have never really been into fitness before.
Some people, when they exercise, strive for a bikini body. If you have a diving bell body, don't fret, you too can be helped by regular exercise. You can look better, but more important feel better if you eat right, exercise, and get enough sleep.

You've heard running can help you slim down, help maintain heart and lung health, and keep your body strong. Those benefits alone can help you feel well mentally.
But did you know that running can also help lift your mood and even ward off depression? It can help you be more creative and productive and feel less stressed out.
No wonder about 50 million Americans, or 15 percent of the population, jog or run regularly!

Whatever kind of intense exercise you do, whether running, weightlifting, team sports, or hard work, your body needs rest days.
In fact, Healthline says rest days are just as important as exercise days, and no regimen is complete without both exercise and rest. Rest enhances your energy and restores the body to full capacity.
