What is Nootropic Coffee?

Most of us cannot imagine our morning without the essential coffee boost. But what if it could also fire up your brain at a higher RPM level, allowing your brain to function at optimal levels of consciousness where you can perform at your best, improving your creativity and productivity.

How Nootropic Coffee Works?

Nootropic coffee “smart coffee” takes the stimulating effects of a regular cup of coffee and enhances it. Nootropics are known as “smart drugs” and are dietary supplements that help support certain brain functions, including memory, mental speed, and focus.

Nootropics have been around for thousands of years as they occur in nature and we’ve all been consuming them since birth. Our body needs them to trigger our neurotransmitters that send signals to neurons and other cells throughout the body. Without specific nootropics neurotransmitters don’t fire, signals are not sent, specific hormones are not released, and problems occur.

What Are The Benefits Of Nootropic Coffee?

The key benefits of Nootropic Coffee is its ability to reduce brain fog and clear the cobwebs holding you back from achieving your goals. It can also help improve your overall mood and temperament, especially if you are feeling over-taxed, over-worked, or fatigued.

However, there are also long term cognitive benefits associated with certain nootropic ingredients that make this an ideal supplement for overall brain health. 

Key Nootropic Ingredients

In our Skull Crusher Nootropic Coffee we have blended 9 scientifically-proven cognitive boosting ingredients with our high-caffeine coffee. Each of the ingredients chosen play a specific role in boosting mental performance, mood and cognitive health.

✅ L-Tyrosine

This amino acid is a forerunner of two of the most important neurotransmitters, dopamine and norepinephrine. It enhances working memory and executive function through chemical signallers in the prefrontal cortex. A quintessential limitless nootropic, it can increase focus, internalise motivation, boost inspiration of creative flow, and enhance a state of wellbeing through cortisol reduction.

✅ L-Theanine

A mood-boosting nootropic that has favoured effects on focus, mental drive, anxiety and depression reduction without inducing drowsiness. Some of L-Theanine’s most powerful mental effects are created by limiting the neurochemicals which can contribute to stress reactions and mental clarity reduction. By calming these over-stimulating chemicals, L-Theanine benefits can promote feelings of relaxation, tranquility and a zen-like wellbeing. 

✅ Alpha GPC (50%)

Derived originally from lecithin, L-Alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine (αGPC, choline alfoscerate) is a phospholipid metabolite found in neuronal membranes. Unlike other forms such as Choline Bitartrate, Alpha GPC is the most superior precursor to acetylcholine has been shown to be well absorbed, easily crossing the blood-brain barrier to support the synthesis and emission of Acetylcholine. Enhanced acetylcholine levels have been linked to sharper memory, mental drive, focus and lucid REM sleep states.

✅ Lions Mane

Lion’s mane may boost focus, too. Reduced inflammation improves blood flow, which provides your brain with more oxygen. The side effect of more oxygen in your brain is better brain performance. The antioxidants in lion’s mane may help promote learning and memory, possibly by strengthening your brain cells and stimulating the growth of new neurons.

✅ Ashwagandha Extract

Ashwagandha helps reduce anxiety and depression. It reduces the stress hormone cortisol, lowers blood sugar levels, and improves lipid profiles. Ashwagandha helps regenerate axons and dendrites of brain nerve cells. And helps reconstruct synapses, the junctions where nerve cells communicate with other cells. Boosting memory and restoring neural networks affected by neurodegenerative disease. Ashwagandha extract inhibits acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme responsible for breaking down the key neurotransmitter acetylcholine, boosting memory, learning and cognition.

✅ Bacopa Monnieri Extract

Bacopa affects brain levels of acetylcholine which is important for memory and cognition. Bacopa has antioxidant effects which enhances cognitive function. Bacopa extract helps prevent arterial plaque that can lead to heart attack, stroke and other neurodegenerative diseases. Bacopa has a significant anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effect. It appears to modulate brain levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin. This has an effect on mood regulation.

✅ Huperzine A (1%)

Huperzine A is the active compound found in a species of fir clubmoss (Huperzia Serrata). This compound has a powerful inhibitory effect on acetylcholinesterase (AchE), an enzyme responsible for degrading the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (Ach) thus boosting acetylcholine levels and preventing oxidative stress in cholinergic neurons. The action of this herbal extract can contribute to learning, memory, and reduce impairments associated with neurological disease.

✅ Phosphatidylserine

Phosphatidylserine (PS) keeps brain cells fluid and permeable. This neuroplasticity helps neurons form new connections needed for memory formation. PS is integral to cleaning up damaged neurons and maintaining an optimised brain.


DMAE increases choline levels in your brain. This increase in choline and DMAE’s ability to stimulate cholinergic receptors into action may lead to an increase in acetylcholine (ACh) levels. Increased ACh levels affect learning and memory. ACh helps the encoding of memories and your ability to concentrate.

Smarter Coffee Drinking

These impressive properties make them great candidates for a better boost than regular coffee and safe to consume every day with no side effects. If you find yourself drinking coffee every day and you’re so used to the caffeine that its boosting effects don’t affect you anymore, try Nootropic coffee.
