    piracetam + choline citrate or AGPC. that stack is extremely cheap and most people find it effective for boosting memory.

    or, if you can get one, pramiracetam/aniracetam, but those are a little more costly. sulbutiamine might, and i emphasize, MIGHT help.

    Piracetam+ginko+choline source is a super stack for memory, IMO. I'm a college student and I run this all the time. I've found it to be very powerful for boosting my recall abilities.

    If you go the racetam route, be advised that the effects downgrade if time off is not taken.

    I've had good luck with piracetam. Make sure you also take choline with it as well.

    Oddly enough... I also tried Bodyquicken/Brainquicken and it seemed to work for a shorter term brain boost. Although its pricey and doesn't last more than a few hours.

    aniracetam appears to be the favorite of our customers versus piracetam and oxiracetam....there was a problem with supply issues recently but we have now gotten a shipment of aniracetam (one of the very few) at dealsinbulk

    Nutrition major speaking here...

    There no food or supplement that is clinically proven to provide increased memory or brain function. I can provide support from clinical studies if anyone is truly interested. Ginko biloba is especially contradicted (marketing for supplements is NOT regulated by FDA; supplements in general are not regulated by FDA either)

    Brain memory is a function of concentrating. Not how much a supplement causes you to think.

    Sorry for the bad news.

    Um, with all do respect to your nutrition major, I believe you may be misinformed. Even creatine has been shown to clinically enhance memory. I am not able to give links yet, but i can show you where to find the study, done by the University of Sydney, Australia.

    here is the summary:
    Creatine supplementation is in widespread use to enhance sports-fitness performance, and has been trialled successfully in the treatment of neurological, neuromuscular and atherosclerotic disease. Creatine plays a pivotal role in brain energy homeostasis, being a temporal and spatial buffer for cytosolic and mitochondrial pools of the cellular energy currency, adenosine triphosphate and its regulator, adenosine diphosphate. In this work, we tested the hypothesis that oral creatine supplementation (5 g d-1 for six weeks) would enhance intelligence test scores and working memory performance in 45 young adult, vegetarian subjects in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over design. Creatine supplementation had a significant positive effect (p < 0.0001) on both working memory (backward digit span) and intelligence (Raven's Advanced Progressive Matrices), both tasks that require speed of processing. These findings underline a dynamic and significant role of brain energy capacity in influencing brain performance.

    it was done by Discipline of Biochemistry, School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences G08, The University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW 2006, Australia

    and you can find it at the royal society's website.

    And even if the -racetam family and ginko have not been CLINICALLY proven, the functional word there is CLINICALLY... massive amounts of anecdotal evidence supports the premise that they do, in fact, enhance memory.

    Once again, the power of the internet wins.

    Piracetam.com cites a study done and published in Pharmacology magazine.... here is the summary...

    The subjects were given 3x4 capsules at 400 mg per day, in a double blind study. Each subject learned series of words presented as stimuli upon a memory drum. No effects were observed after 7 days but after 14 days verbal learning had significantly increased.

    if you want to evaluate that further, just google the following:
    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 1976 Sep 29;49(3):307-9

    It is apparent that supplements HAVE been shown to clinically improve memory. There are numerous other studies i found, but i believe my point has been made.

    to the OP, please look into phosphatidylserine. This has helped me greatly with my short term memory as well as with recovery from workouts. A true 2 in 1 type product. The one I purchase is made by Source Naturals.

    Regardless of what company you use, just make sure that it's a decent dosage when taken. im currently taking 1g (1000mg) in total by way of 1 pill x twice daily.

    Spicey....Supps definitely make a difference, it's not just marketing. High grade Ginko is good but I always used cheep inexpensive Lecethin. My mom used to give it to me in Highschool and I swear it took me from a C student to and A- student. I was focused, calm, and my mind retained everything. Back on it recently! Good inexpensive stuff. Good Ginko is expensive...I belive it is and higher potency extract that would cost me $40 for 1 mth supply but boy I could feel the increased blood circulation throughout my entire body. The inexpensive Ginko seems to do nothing for me.

    . I vote notropics..if you do piracteam make sure you do a choline source with it...I ony did mine a lil over three monthsi got decent benefits. Best benefits are like six months or longer.

    I did Alcar two years without choline which was a mistake I was always foggy headed.

    right now taking sulbutamine which is good stuff for learning. Smart drugs are an interest i like to take on and off at times.

    I am a performance trainer to Michael Guasch, a professional formula 1 car driver. He works across the street from Bill Romanowski and I train them together out in Benicia, California. While training Bill he kept bringing up his supplement line (Nutrition 53) and he gave me a few samples and I was blown away. I never really rave about supps but hearing him talk about his formula and company standards made me optimistic enough to give it a shot and I'm so glad I did.

    So, go to nutrition53.com. And if MY memory serves me well then you can get a tub of it for free...of course you pay the 8 bucks or what not for shipping. Just make sure to call back in about 20days and tell them to not send you anymore (unless you opt to pay the $80 a month for it) and you're home free. This stuff is great and worth the money. Lots of stars take it and ha....even mr john mccain uses it daily!

    Sorry guys. I just went on the site and didn't notice the same offer. Put out a couple calls and that offer is expired. However, someone on this board should go out on a limb and get a tub. You wouldn't regret it.

    Here is what you need:
    Ginko >> circulation >> it's not expensive
    Bacopa Manierri >> Memory enhancer >> can get a good extract pretty cheap
    Fish Oil >> Will help your entire body
    DMAE >> cheap and you only need a small dose
    ALCAR >> for memory you only need small dose, which would be cheap at nutra
    Gotu Kola >> will help circulation as well
    Choline >> Alpha GPC is a high quality one, but it's expensive >> need small dose as well
    Vinpocetine & Huperzia are also helpful for memory
    Phosphatidylserine >> This will help with stress and protect your brain cells from damage. Used to be pricey, but you only need like 100mg per day to feel the difference, which is not that expensive any more.




    If you look around you can find a supplement for about $20/month that has most of the above, or you can build your own buying herb extracts and bulk powders from multiple sites. Anyways, you will feel the difference.

    Sorry bro, but that supplement is wayyyyy too over priced. The most I would be willing to pay for it is between $30-$40. The ingredients are pretty standard and you can easily build your own for much much less. I am glad it works for you, but it's perhaps because you have done enough damage to your brain and you lead a stressfull life.

    Guys, don't get ripped off on that website...and besides that only nutraplanet is a valid recommendation at this forum.

    Another cheap nootropic to add to your list is lecithin. It is a great source of phosphatidyl choline and inositol.

    Good call bro...Licithin Granules is a good source. Mix it with your protein and you are good to go.

    But of course. All 3 derivatives have pretty much the same pharmaco-K, but ani is more than double the potency of either of the other two.

    I never quite understood why people even buy oxi, comparing costs to what the research says its potency is, it's not very cost-effective.
