  2. Have you guys tried Brain Candy? I have tried it (the caffeine version) and liked it. It seems like a pretty complete formula, but the label does not specify how much ALCAR is in there.

    Looks solid but that caffeine dose is brutal.

  4. I honestly feel Alcar had progressively made me more intelligent and articulate over the years.

  7. Is it necessary to add in choline? You get a good bit from eggs beef chicken etc which I eat almost daily.

    IMO its important to be at maxiumum choline levels as the stimulants are acting

    What choline dose would you suggest per day?

    How much choline would you recommend? Is it better to take ALCAR with choline or with Alpha GPC?

  11. Almost finished with my first SNS bottle of ALCAR dosed at 1g a day. I noticed marked benefits in mental clarity at that dose. I will bump to the 2g a day dose when the next bottle arrives to see the difference. I will also be picking up the new Caff free FocusXT when that hits the market.

  12. NOW has a formula that combines Choline and Inositol. Does it make sense to take ALCAR with Choline & Inositol?

  13. Thanks natty. I am also interested in what dose of choline is recommended for this purpose. A single egg has 125 mg I think. Or 25% dv. Not bad. I am sure the supplement is around 1-2g?

    Entirely user-dependent. Some doses will make users alert; others will make them sleepy. I like 2g choline citrate.

    I take 2g SNS Choline Citrate. 500mg of CDP-Choline or Alpha-GPC is fine too.

    I'm not big on inositol.

    Is that choline dose every day?

    Yup

  17. Thx! What are your thoughts on subbing this with taking caff free FocusXT every day?

    Do you take it at the same time you take ALCAR? Does it matter? One of the reasons I ask is because on my Alpha-GPC bottle it says to take it 90 minutes prior to lifting (it is a liquid form of Alpha-GPC).

    On non-workout days, do you split the dose 250mg choline with 1g ALCAR (first half of the day), 250mg choline with 1g ALCAR (second half of the day)? Thanks!

    They mentioned earlier if you take at the same time it will polymerize. And they mention dosing times a few pages back as well.

    Is it true that all cholines are/can be pro-depressant?

    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)

    In those predisposed, yes.

    Is there an alternative for those that deel down from taking choline

  30. 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.
