    Best thing for FOCUS is FOCUS. FOCUS, by Androfactory, has enanthoxylated forms of preg and dhea, along with an absorption enhancement matrix which will increase the amount of preg and dhea that reach actual blood plasma levels. The effects of pregnenolone and dhea have a plethora or neurological moderation functions.

    Patrick Arnold has 2 sprays of pregnenolone and dhea (P-Spray and D-Spray). They both in a good carrier matrix and you spray them on after showering, when absorption is at it's optimal time and you will want to apply in the morning as when these compounds are at peak levels, you will experience a sense of mental stimulation and motivation.

    Mike0589 brought up a good stack with a standard choline source and an 'enhanced' choline source, both which are documented to raise acetylcholine levels in the brain. Choline citrate and bitartrate are a couple of the standards in inexpensive choline sources and most find them to be good in the cost:benefit analysis. Alpha GPC and Citicoline are patented, enhanced forms of choline that also elicit some nootropic-like effects.

    Pregnenolone increases choline levels and moderates cholinergic channels. I divert to my original recommendations for the purpose of establishing a foundation for which any other 'focus' related product will work properly. FOCUS = Best oral matrix D-Spray and P-Spray stack = best topicals - It's a matter of preference.

    The actual best thing for focus is stimulants, with caffeine as a base.

    I love Caffein but looking for something that actually make me "smarter"..? Focus from AndroFactory sounds really interesting, will Focus make my brain "work" better?

    If anything in the world improved intelligence, you'd know about it. You can theoretically improve memory via NMDA agonism or cholinergics.

    The difference made by use those esters versus the user just consuming a slightly larger dose is probably negligible.

    Want your own "FOCUS" ?? Just take DHEA and Pregnenolone in regular capsule form from Vitaminshoppe with 5mL of Fish Oil. Not only is it far more cost effective, but you gain the benefits of Fish Oil.

    If Focus was remotely decently priced (which it is not), I wouldn't mind recommending it.

    Pregnenlone potentiates NMDA receptor mediated responses, increases choline output and modulates cholinergic channels.

    I agree that you'll notice a difference taking pregnenolone and dhea seperately, but with a few absorption enhancers. I have 2 bottles of preg and dhea from Vitamin Shoppe, as I used them for a bit before FOCUS came out and now I'm ready to dump them in the trash. The difference is not negligible, my friend. The absorption 'matrix' is very effective as well as the enanthoxy ester attachments, though more data need be documented. However, that can be said about MANY novel compounds.

    I wanted to try D-Serine, but you were out of stock. Aniracetam is a nice nootropic, but after it's short-lived effects wear off, it leaves me wanting to dose more and feeling sluggish. Pram is great and longer-lasting. FOCUS enhances and maintains efficacy of any racetam as well. The racetams stop working or sometimes don't work for people due to preg deficiency.

    Limitless... Closest thing to that would be something like what I've put together - FOCUS, noopept, pramiracetam, citicoline, p-serine, ubiquinol, theanine, tyrosine, small amount of caffeine (Black Powder Ultra has 100mg/serving and nutra has an awesome price).

    D-serine would be preferable because it accumulates in the appropriate areas of the brain. DAA is more specific for hormone related areas

    Piracetam became hard to get. I like both, Piracetam seems a bit more mellow I find aniracetam almost stimulating...Perhaps its because it seems to accelerate my thinking and I have racing thoughts anyway.

    And I guess Techno Viking sued the dude who originally took that vid earlier this year. IDK if he won or not, but kinda funny since it's been on the internet for like 12 years now.

    Already in grad school; about to finish actually. I've been done with my classes for years now though. I only started it around a year ago, give or take. I use 10g in my preWO. Though it tastes like SHYT, I think it improves focus, especially since my preferred description of how I train is strenuous.

    I used a teaspoon in the morning and one at bed time, I cannot remember the milligram conversion. It made a very profound difference. Both in speed of thinking and especially memory...though sometimes I rememebered things better left forgotten
