Medical & Science Policy

We believe in the scientific method, evidence-based reporting, and the elevation of high-integrity nootropic research in all of our publications.

Nootropic research is complex and difficult. Health gurus, journalists, and marketers add to this complexity when amplifying inaccurate reports, exaggerating statements, or playing doctor on the internet.

Despite our best efforts to publish and reference factual information, new studies will constantly evolve our understanding of neurology, physiology, and nootropics. We are not medical practitioners and we do not pretend to play doctors on the internet.
