The internet is a scary place. It’s therefore important that our readers feel like they know who is behind the information found on this site.
We are never going to reveal personal information about our writers; the nootropics industry is a crazy place, and as our regular readers will know, we often get seriously negative responses from supplement manufacturers who we call out for being scammers. We’ve had plenty of threats over the years (baseless legal threats as well as physical threats), so we have no desire to publish anything that might reveal their address or personal details. But we can tell you a bit about who they are and what drives them.
Here are some of the key people behind this site. Without them, and you, this site wouldn’t exist!
Luke Mercia – Editor
Luke is the site’s Editor. He is the main driving force behind NaturalNootropic.com; no doubt about it. Without him, there simply wouldn’t be a site.
Luke is a very accomplished entrepreneur, with a number of profitable businesses to his name. He is obsessed with enhancing cognitive function, with the ultimate aim of maximizing what he is able to get done in the short amount of time he has on this planet. His area of expertise is cognitive enhancement through targeted supplementation, although he is also fascinated by longevity research and pushing the limits of what the human body can do.
Henry Bearman – Contributor
Henry has been contributing to our site for a while, although in the past he had to publish anonymously due to work commitments. He has worked in multiple different industries throughout his career; IT consultancy, PR, marketing, and business analysis. His passion, however, lies with human optimization.
He predominantly writes about productivity, as well as specific nootropic ingredients. Going forward he would like to focus more on producing guides to help people get more out of their lives.
Stephen Walter – Contributor & Review Team Member
Stephen Walter is a regular contributor to Natural Nootropic. He is an experienced nootropic user, biohacking enthusiast, and a very diligent researcher. His writing focuses on the latest issues and developments in human biology and physiology; if the site needs a skeptical eye to look over a news story, Stephen is our go-to guy!
A keen trail runner, Stephen is a big believer in the power of exercise. He eats a predominantly plant-based diet, and spends practically all of his spare time reading. Stephen loves it when people comment on his articles; he is always more than happy to engage with critics of his work. That is how good researchers operate! Alternatively, you can reach him any time on Twitter or LinkedIn.
Our Review Team
Our review team is a rag-tag bunch of nootropics enthusiasts, ‘psychonauts’, and productivity hackers. Everyone brings something slightly different to the table, but each member shares a commitment to scientific principles, and a serious passion for performance optimization. Our review team works very hard to produce fair, unbiased, impartial reviews. They try to be as thorough as possible, and they try to give you the information that you need to make good buying decisions.
Unlike a lot of websites out there, none of the writers for our site have their own products on the market! They have a lot of experience with nootropics, and they are always learning about every aspect of human optimization (including through supplementation). None of our review team are employed by supplement companies.
We recommend getting in touch with our review team directly if you have any product suggestions or any serious issues with the content of their reviews.
