    The secret to a sharp mind is to use it. That means keeping yourself mentally on point even when you don't have to. Popular means of doing so are thought exercises, IQ tests, etc

    As many students often realize, when you sit back during the summer and do nothing, your ability to learn, memorize, etc is transiently diminished. Re-immersing yourself in material once school starts slowly brings your mental faculties back up to par.

    And of course, synaptic plasticity, LTP, and Hebbian learning all support the notion of using the pathways that you want to get better at...in this case, learning.

    Mindblowing, I know, but this is the secret to having a sharp mind.

    Agreed, too many people plop down in front of the television, a totally passive activity. Just a couple days of that and I feel my mind slowing down. I am fortunate...or not in that my job though boring does require problem solving with many variables to consider. Even so I try to keep the television to a bare minimum. There are studies that show activities as simple as reading a book can keep the mind sharp..a small investment and much more rewarding that watching Jersey Shore and the ilk

    Physical exercise and mental activity have shown to promote the production and survival of new cells, in animals anyways. Life stressors can inhibit that potential

    Therapeudic doses of nicotine have been found to show neuroprotective properties, such as illiciting certain, desirable 'nootropic' effects. Don't quote me on that, but if need be I can pull the literature.

    Que? Nicotine gum is great for cutting. With ECA, I believe it can boost weightloss by about 10% more. Follow the instructions on how to chew it; use the 4mg stuff since it's the same price as the 2mg stuff and just cut the pieces in half.... twice as much for the same price.

    Not as addicting as you think. They taught us that it was highly addictive as well, but a deeper look into the data yields a different conclusion. Synapsin made a great post about it on BB.com

    Really? I was under the impression that it ranked right up there with heroin. Stimulated the same areas in the brain.

    Used nicotine both recreationally and for cutting. Never got addicted but "felt" the potential to was just around the corner. It's like caffeine's hotter sister

    What did I say? If you follow directions on how to chew it correctly and use only 2mg.

    "Highly addictive" to those with a high propensity to addiction...

    You're talking about big tobacco... nicotine itself, not the delivery system, may be beneficial.

    I was addicted to cigarettes and chew. Chew being the hardest habit to break that I've ever dealt with. If someone has addiction problems it's prob best to steer clear of nicotine. **** I even get a little too intense with wanting caffeine lol

    Adderall, Caffeine, Aniracetam, ALCAR, Ginkgo Biloba, Choline, Vinpocetine and a high quality EFA blend. That stack has been money for me for a while now. I have to watch the Ginkgo though... For whatever reason it raises my B.P. even more than the Adderall, though its' benefits outweigh that side-effect I.M.O.

    P.A. mentioned fasting... I've found taking a break from everything but the EFA blend is very helpful in avoiding tolerance buildup (though taking a day off from caffeine can be a real bee-otch of a headache).

    D-Serine looks very interesing and I'm thinking of giving that a try soon. I'd also like to try a new racetam... I hated Noopet (the anxiety it caused offset any benefits) and I've been taking Aniracetam for a while now. Any reccomendations? Phenylpiracetam looks interesting but is expensive and there's not many sources for it that I've seen.
