SCIENCE behind nootropics

Build a better brain

Nootropics are natural and synthetic compounds that can boost cognitive function and improve many aspects of your life, especially when it comes to enhancing performance and decreasing stress.

Nootropic substances can be used individually or in a combination for optimal results. Neurologica has merged thorough research and pharmacology practises to combine optimal ingredients and ensure the ideal dosages for each – but crafting a nootropic formulation can be likened to the development of an iconic building.

Build a foundation

Some ingredients are standard in all our formulations. This is because you can’t build an iconic building without a solid foundation. Certain minerals and vitamins, such as B vitamins, iodine, selenium, and CoEnzyme Q10, provide a strong foundation for optimal health.

Design plan

The brain is wonderfully complex, in that there are many different parts with equally varying functions. It’s vital that the right ingredients are used to enhance the cognitive function of each part, and Neurologica has done the work to map out the blueprint of ingredients required to achieve your personal goal.


Neurologica has partnered with some of the best pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities that South Africa has to offer. They are staffed with registered professionals such as pharmacists and scientists that take their responsibilities seriously. It was a key decision for us to manufacture locally; not only because we have such a high regard for the quality of the South African pharmaceutical industry, but also because it enables us to maintain a strong relationship with our partners ensuring that outputs match Neuroloigca’s quality ethos.

High quality materials

You wouldn’t develop an iconic building using sub-par materials, so why should it be any different when it comes to improving the function of your most precious asset – the brain? All pharmaceutical ingredients have to be standardized to ensure that there is no variation from one batch to another. This is why it’s vital that all plant materials are processed in a manufacturing facility, ensuring that any differences are eliminated and that the ingredients are safe and effective. However, not all ingredient manufacturing facilities are created equal. Neurologica is committed to using reliable and reputable sources to ensure that our products are safe and sourced with care.

Types of building materials

There are so many nootropic ingredients out there, that it can quickly become overwhelming. This is why we rely on trained pharmacists to help navigate this choice. Some ingredients have been used for thousands of years, while others are cutting-edge discoveries. Neuroscientists are still in the process of studying them and finding new applications regularly. We have eliminated ingredients that do not meet the criteria of a true nootropic.


We have chosen ingredients that work in synergy with each other. This keeps the formulation both clean and potent at the same time. This is referred to as “Systems Theory”, which means that no ingredient is evaluated on its own; rather it’s studied as part of a whole. Neurologica has also ensured, where applicable, that all of the precursors of effective ingredients are present so that there is not a single ingredient that will not be effective.

Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.
