Over the last few weeks, I've been experimenting with the new Clear Edge supplement available at Nutraplanet. This supplement has been one of the most enjoyable nootropics that I've tried. I purchased 5 bottles at first, and just placed an order for 6 more because I found it to be so effective.
I've tried various dosages of CE along with various combinations of other nootropic/stimulant type supplements. All of the supplements that I will list can be purchased at nutraplanet, so if you see something you like you can get them all in one shot.
Clear Edge Clear Edge (120 caps) By Clear Edge
Now Rhodiola (60 caps/500 mg) By NOW Foods
Now L- Theanine (90 caps) By NOW Foods
Bulk NP Phenibut Powder (50 grams) By NutraPlanet
Thermolife Stizm (90 caps) By ThermoLife
So far, these are the combinations that have worked best:
Clear Edge alone: -- 8 caps to feel the full effects. I found this to be very good for studying, pre workout, etc. if you're looking for a little brain boost.
Pre-workout intensity stack:
6-8 caps clear edge
1 cap stizm
3 caps rhodiola
Ultimate study stack: -- Have a long day of studying ahead of you? Try:
6-8 caps of CE
3 caps of Rhodiola
2-3 caps L-theanine
1 cap thermolife stizm.
This includes an effective dose of caffiene along with other brain boosting stupplements. The effects last approximately 5-6 hours. At the 5hr mark, I'll throw in another cap of stizm. At the 8 hr mark, try another 6 caps of CE and you should be good to go another few hours.
Just got home from a long day. My brain hurts, but I still have an exam in the morning stack:
8 caps of CE
3 caps Rhodiloa
3 caps L-theanine
This is one of my favorites. Not because I feel its the most effective, but because it allows me to get the brain in gear without taking a stimulant. I can still get a few hours of quality studying in, and be able to fall asleep when I need to.
Going to dinner with a pretty girl who I'm scared to death of stack: -- We've all been there, this can help.
6 caps CE
3 caps Rhodiola
3 caps L-theanine
1 cap stizm
**Added bonus, have a glass of wine or two with dinner.**
I suggest that you have the approximately 2-3 hours prior to the rest of the components of this stack. I say this because tends to take a bit longer to kick in than the rest. As far as mood enhancement, this was BY FAR the best combination. I liken this to a poor man's benzo in that it is very effective in anxiety reduction. I was extremely talkative and outgoing, but also calm and articulate. Perfect for partying or taking a girl out.
Honestly, I think that combination would make a killer supplement on its own. It's like a Yellow Neuphoria type supplement that actually delivers. (**Hint Dsade, Hint**)
Well, as I've said, I found these to be most effective. I must stress that everyone is different, and that I urge you to use this only as a guidline. I suggest that you tweak these combinations to find the one that fits you best. I hope this helps. Good luck!
**New Addition - Clear Edge + /Hordenine:
I tried this one this past week and loved it so much that I had to add it to the list here. Great Euphoric/motivated feeling...this was perfect for studying. I tried this combo with both plain PEA/Hordenine and also with DS Basic cuts (also contains caffiene). Trust me, if you've got some studying to do...give this one a shot.
PEA + Hordenine: Liquibolics PEA + Hordenine (60 caps) By Spectra Force
Designer Supplements Basic Cuts: Basic Cuts (120 caps) By Designer Supplements
As a side note, Basic Cuts is probably the most underrated supplement that I've ever used. The stuff is just amazing, better than many of the high end fat burners out there. A 2 month supply can be had for under $15. Easily one of the best value supplements that I've ever purchased.
