    I think that pertained to ALA/R-ALA; no?

    They do not polymerize in the acidic environment of the stomach. Mixing the bulk powders in a cup is a different story (I learned the hard way)

    I take 600mg of Alpha-GPC daily, but I noticed that adding 500mg of choline and inositol split twice a day has really improved my mood and sleep. This happened almost immediately and I am certain that the mood is in direct correlation to my sleep.

    500mg of inositol 2x a day? And in addition to the 600mg of gpc?

    Could you elaborate on this a litte further? Are you saying you can take both bulk powders at the same time?

    You cannot pre-mix them prior to consumption. However, you can take them separately at the same time, as the acidic environment of the stomach will prevent the polymerization reaction (or at least greatly lessen the tendency).

    It's kind fun to watch NAC and NR-ALA polymerize. Expensive mistake, but provides a scifi-like visual effect. lol

    I went out of town and left my Ani. and Choline at home, so I did not dose either for two days and still felt pretty good. I have been taking my usual dose the last three days and now the combo seems to be having a different effect. I am having trouble getting awake in the mornings and am so sleepy all day and have the slow thought process feeling like I did before starting this stack. I have not added or changed anything supp. wise. I,m considering not reordering if this keeps up. I,m stumped to why this is happening, anyone else have this happen or any ideas on why I,m having these effects now ?????

    mr.cooper69, how pronounced would you say the improvement in memory is when taking ALCAR? Do you actually notice a boost when it comes to studying and memorizing academic material?

    I'm taking A&P 2, Microbiology, Psychology, and Medical Terminology this semester, so if ALCAR really does help you retain more (or even the same amount) of information with less studying, I'll definitely invest in this...

    Absolutely. Memory retention is superb when I'm on ALCAR, Caffeine-Free Focus XT, and Noopept.

    Thanks. Have you tried studying on just ALCAR? If so, how did that go?

    Also, how are you dosing Noopept? I have actually been interested in trying that for the last few years...

    Yup, I've been using ALCAR continuously for ages (it's the only nootropic I use chronically with minimal off-time).

    I just started the noopept, dosing 30mg with a choline source, and so far so good

    Cool. I also just remembered that I had a bottle of Pramiracetam with ~30 tablets (300 mg/each) remaining as well as a bottle of Huperzine A tablets, so I might be formulating my own study stack soon...

    I love Huperzine A and studies have shown it to be effective for memory. I like taking that with ALCAR when I study. I'm taking medical terminology too and am in my last semester. At least as an undergrad.

    How often do you guys dose your Huperzine A when studying, and how much do you take for each dose? I have a test coming up this Friday and will probably start studying Monday or Tuesday night. My Huperzine A tabs contain 200 mcg each. I'll also be taking Pramiracetam with the Hup A.

    I do 1-2 caps everyday. Not for more then a few months at a time but that's just cause I get tired of taking so many supps/pills that I take a break from everything every now and again.

    I love it in very small doses. 25mg or less and I'm OK, anything higher and it doesn't go well.
