What are Nootropics?
Nootropics are supplements that help to improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation. In the same way athletes can better optimize their bodies through diet and training, our brains can also be strengthened.
For dogs though?
Dogs possess naturally incredible cognitive abilities that allow them to be curious, empathetic, and intelligent all at once. They are truly humankind’s greatest companion. Our mission is to help our best friends unlock even more of their magnificent potential with the world’s first 100% natural nootropic for dogs. (it’s also been engineered for taste so dogs love it!)
