I tried your product Psychotropin a long time ago and thought it was one of the two best nootropic blends on the market at the time. Over the past 3-4 years I have experimented with every legal nootropic imagineable with a wide array of results.
It appears to me, at least from anecdotal evidence, that the Nootropic market is starting to make a bit of a comeback (from a consumer demand standpoint anyway). Maybe it's because of all the politicians and alphabet agencies wanting to take the stuff that works away from us and maybe it's just that public conciousness regarding nootropics has exponentially grown in today's age of ever expanding digital media. I think it's a heavy combination of both.
I know nootropics aren't necessarily your specialty, but I respect your expertise and knowledge nonetheless. I was hoping you could answer a few of these questions for me:
** Do you agree or disagree that the nootropic market is making a comeback and would you have any future interest in developing a novel nootropic compound and/ or nootropic blend?
** (This one is a bit off the wall) Is Phenibut DSHEA compliant since it is a synthetic compound and not found in nature? If it is not, why is it allowed to be sold as a dietary supplement (I believe it's classified as a prescription medication in some other countries)? Don't get me wrong, I love the stuff in moderation and think it is almost as good for anxiety as Xanax, just with FAR fewer side-effects. Just curious on that one. Google wasn't much help to me there.
** Why do certain GABA receptor agonists and some compounds that exogenously produce GABA cause hyper-focus? I've always understood GABA to be the brains' main inhibitory neurotransmitter. But certain compounds seem to cause hyper-focus for a small-to-moderate window of time after their initial onset. I have a relaxation supplement that contains Phenibut and it puts me in "the zone" so to speak as far as focus goes. If I take it early in the afternoon after my second dose of Adderall it makes me rediculously focused and productive.
**I loved this prodcut:
Serving Size: 4 Capsules
Servings per Container: 30
Amount per Serving:
Phenibut - 500mg
Acetyl L-Carnitine - 1000mg
Bacopa Monnieri - 250mg
L-Theanine - 200mg
DMAE - 200mg
Betaine - 200mg
Rhodiola Rosea - 150mg
Vinpocetine - 7.5mg
Huperzine - .05mg
Knowing what you know today and with all the new compounds that have come on to the nootropic market over the years, would you alter this formula at all (add/ subtract substances from this blend?). Or would you just scrap the whole thing and come out with something completely different?
I know that's a lot of questions. If you could answer any of them though that would be great and I'm sure it would make for a good, informative read for anyone else that has an interest in nootropics. Thanks P.A.!
