Coop, would you mind sharing your thoughts on Phenylpiracetam in comparison to some of the other ingredients on this thread? From my understanding it's a stimulant with noot type effects?

The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES
Power to you guys that can take 4g of ALCAR a day or barely feel anything at 2g.
For me it took 2 days off ALCAR (even when taking just 500mg in the morning) to stop feeling upset stomach and light headedness.
I started reading more on long term recommended dose and few sources say if converting rat studies that human daily dose for ALCAR to be 100-300mg.
Also they noticed U curve action where higher dose actually start working in negative way - similar as noticed with Bulbine where higher dose actually starts reducing testosterone.
I'll try now with 500mg of ALCAR and 250mg CDP Choline every other day and R-ALA is not for me with lowering my already low BP and I guess lowering blood glucose made me so dizzy on day 4 of starting to figure my stack.
ahh123...So how are you doing now with the new dosing?
Actually this light version of side effects I sometimes experience even when eating 3 eggs that have around 375mg choline so looks like my body just doesn't respond well to extra choline.
But I do have to say my body is sensitive as well to certain food and even alcohol my body doesn't like much.
ALCAR hmm at 500mg every other day in the morning is borderline to feel benefits yet still having light version of side effects.
- R-ALA is not for me since looks like lowers my blood glucose too much and make me so dizzy I can barely stand despite being used to having BP around 85/50 to 95/65,
- CDP Choline haven't felt considerable benefits plus can feel side effects like brain fog, a bit sleepy and diarrhea so this is also not something I want to keep on using,
- ALCAR hmm I do feel some benefits but 500mg is to small of a dose for real effects to kick in but then if I go higher the side effects kick in higher gear too so I might try to use it 2x/week at 1g in the morning (or 3x/week at 500mg) for physical & memory endurance booster.
Too bad my body is so sensitive with most of supplements, food or drinks so I guess my body is not in average category.
Have ya'll heard of modafinil?
It's the real life drug from Limitless. I take it whenever I need to work hard and go straight into tunnel vision mode it's insane. I can work for 8 hours straight and it will feel like 2. Only need 4 hours of sleep a night and the side effects are limited. Brilliant nootropic.
4g Piracetam + 500mg Pramiracetam + Vinpocetine + 1.5g Alpha GPC = Feelin pretty focused. Not particularly motivated, but focused.
We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.
Big daddy Coop, I have another question concerning ALCAR.
Is there any possible correlation between ALCAR and extreme itchiness?
The only change I have made in my supplement stash is brands of ALCAR from SNS to Nutraplanet and since then right after I take them I get a bad case of full body itchiness.
Perhaps it could be whatever raw they use I'm having a reaction too? This has never happened with SNS' ALCAR. It can also be another outside factor causing me to be irritated idk.
