    No problem man, the stuff rocks!
    Do you feel that the effect is decreasing, like do you have to "up" the dose after a while?

    Not at all. The cumulative effects are actually positive, aka it gets better with time.

    Na-R-Ala = best antioxidant with ALCAR IMO, just don't take them together or they polymerize.
    Does the same apply to Na-R-Ala and LCLT? If so, what are the effects?

    Possibly, but the research isn't there as far as I know. Perhaps there is synergy between Na-RLA and intracellular carnitine, but we all know how big of an issue it is getting LCLT into muscle (think insulin).

    I'm not Coop, but I used it when I was on zoloft for about a month and it made a very big difference. I'd say pick up a ~35$ 1000g tub of it that will last over a year and see how it works for you.

    Well what I was referring to if there is polymerization when Na-R-ALA and LCLT are taken literally at the same time. If there is polymerization, what does that mean exactly regarding the desired effects of the Na-R-ALA and the LCLT? Are they still as effective, less effective, or not effective at all?

  9. Thanks Chimeran, I started with 500 mg this morning on empty stomach. I will slowly increase and see how it goes. What differences did it make for you ????

    I started at 1g and increased from there. I noticed a clearer head, easier to think, easier to remember things. It pretty much canceled out a lot of the negative side effects of the SSRI.

  11. Thats really the effects I was looking for. I will increase and update as warranted. Appreciate the help...

  13. Thanks Coop !!!

  14. A few questions. I was going to start taking SNS ALCAR tabs soon. I also was thinking of using FocusXT as a preworkout. 4 500mg caps is 2 grams, so on non workout days dosing is easy, 4 caps. But due to the blend of the FocusXT I am not sure how much is in it. So how many caps should I take on workout days?

    Also I take Orange Triad, is this sufficient for an antioxident? There is a small amount of Na-R-Ala (100mgs) in it.

    You can continue taking 2g ALCAR alongside with Focus XT on training days, but for the sake of saving money, you can lower the dose by 2 caps.

    Don't worry about the antioxidant ancillary unless dosing high or truly chronically.

  16. Thanks a lot for the quick reply!

  17. I take 1-2g ALCAR daily myself.
    love it

  18. Another FocusXT question. How long do the "focus" effects typically last? My reason for asking is my workday is typically busiest first thing in the morning, than after 11am or so it tapers off. So would it be worth it to take it on non workout days in place of my morning coffee to help with the crazy first half of the day I normally deal with?

    Also, I play in a basketball league 2 days a week after work. Would you guys think it would be helpful to use it about an hout before playing a sports event like that?

    Actually, most people who use Focus XT that I've been contact with use it as a replacement for morning coffee to stay sharp throughout the day. At $0.50 per scoop, it's a great deal, and it's more effective than coffee if you ask any of the users. The effects from one scoop last 3-6 hours. It would also be effective pre-basketball. It's an all-around versatile supplement.

    I don't drink coffee, but I do drink FXT I personally try not to make a habit out of it, but it's definitely a nice addition to the workdays or before class. I wouldn't take it before basketball, but that's just me. I never needed stimulants pre-basketball or anything else to help focus/drive. It certainly wouldn't hurt, though.

    The thing about Focus XT is that the nootropics boost ACh subchronically, and the huperzine A dose is low enough to facilitate consistent use. In other words, it only gets better with time.

    Oh for sure, bud. I just like to give myself days off of stimulants (albeit a low dose of 200mg) whenever I can. Hence, SNS needs to stop producing new products like COP and cissus (which are great) and get me my caffeine-free FXT!

  23. Love me some ALCAR! It's actually made me progressively smarter. Focus xt looks like a great pre workout. Will be trying it soon

    just so true.

    the 2 months or so i was taking it daily during my EMT course, by the end of the course when it was time to go take the natl. cert. test's, i was absolutely amazed at the improvement in my memory retention/faster memory recall......ive never had a HUGE problem with tests, but things were noticeable better with FXT

    Exactly why I don't use this product. I already take everything in it, but the convenience would be great without all the caffeine.

  26. Gonna order me some Alcar today. Since I am already taking multiple supplements I decided to just add 2 grams of bulk Alcar for a few weeks, and then start using FocusXT at a later time. I was thinking just buying 100 gram Nutraplanet bulk powder for now to try it out, with 1 gram early morning before training, and 1 gram in the afternoon. Later I can replace the first dose with the FocusXT.

  27. I've been taking ALCAR in 500mg doses, for a week or so. Rarely twice a day. I still get headaches if I take around 750mg or more, at once. However, I do not get that same mild headache from FocusXT. Probably the added Choline?? I just got in some Citicoline, I think I'll play with some doses and see if I can take 1g at a time with the choline. (Got some Aniracetam too. . ) Went with ~750mg ALCAR, 250mg Na-R-ALA, 500mg Citicoline, 750mg Aniracetam and a cup if coffee, today.

  28. I would take the Ani twice a day at 750mg and then 250-500mg of alcar twice a day. And then have fun being smarter than everyone around you.

  29. I can't imagine a better nootropic use than pre-sports. Seriously, even moreso than studying.

  30. I would tend to agree. I can't say without a baseline, but I think that I did much better in a bike race I had last weekend that I would have without noots. The ability to visualize the course, focus on little things I would normally not, and keeping calm are all great for competition success.
