    I take San dr feel good which has a good blend of nootropics, but on top of that I take choline, alcar and vinpocetine which I definitely notice a difference with. I've been here on my phone for 3 hours reading about nootropics and haven't gotten distracted yet a little bit of caffeine can be great too, and I always chew a little nicotine gum during tests. If your an ex smoker (like me) be careful with that one.

    I'm going to add piracetam and pramiracetam next and see what that does. I'm curious about ashwagandha cut don't know enough about it to give it a try, but certain studies suggest it could make me feel awesome

    I've been researching a lot on nootropics and my interest is peaked. I've always been a very competitive person academically and professionally and I'm in a very extensive energy program in Texas with two majors and a minor, as well as nearly a minor in two different languages. I have noticed as I've grown older and wiser(and with quite a few dumbass moments along the way) that while blessed with an ability to ascertain solutions quickly given abstract and convoluted inputs, my thoughts are quite often too rapid and when not putting my mind to use with work they are quite often a jumbled blurry mess. An analogy that'd probably best describe it would be standing alongside a road as an aircraft passed by at mach3, a fast and incredibly efficient machine but if you were asked to describe what it looked like you would be clueless. And therein lies my dilemma. I've read about nootropics pretty extensively and I was wondering about their effect on possible moderate OCD, which I believe is the root of my problem. A gift academically but a pain in the ass in alot of aspects of my life. Which brings me to what you guys would recommend as I know there are lot of smart bro's on this forum.

    Here's what I was thinking:

    Alcar
    Piracetam
    CDPcholine
    Sulbutiamine


    Pretty basic stack I think. This mainly came from the nootropic guide here on AM. I was mainly curious if users of this combination that suffered from mild OCD reaped any benefit from this stack. Also, I plan on getting everything I can from Nutraplanet but it seems like they are missing two of the ingredients. I know sourcing usually isn't permitted here for products that Nutraplanet carries, but since they are out/not carrying them I didn't think it'd be unquestionable to ask.

    Edit: I also seem to suffer from a mild form of social anxiety which is just annoying and pisses me off. It is completely irrational and as someone who takes pride in being logical it's a hindrance with absolutely no basis for it. I know there's no reason to have anxiety in some social situations but yet there it is. f these products could help me in this aspect alone then they'd be worth it for me.

    Thanks in advance

    You sound just like me. I deal with Fortune 1000 and 500 execs on a weekly basis and need to be on top of my game at all times. I am a very logical person and I am very prepared, so if there is ever a tinge of anxiety, it drives me absolutely insane. Even the slightest anxiety eats away at logical thinking and starts to occupy my mind with thoughts that have no reason to be there.

    That being said, I am very good at faking it, but recently found a stack that lets me completely dominate my meetings. I mean, to the point that I am getting complimented on my handling of CIO/CTO level people. Obviously, intense preparation is always key, but I find that if my mind is firing quickly and clearly, that is just about as important.

    I've been taking:
    125 mg rhodiola rosea
    100 mg l-theanine
    600 mg Alpha-gpc
    400 mg phosphatidylserine (recently picked up some endoamp, which has 600mg Alpha-gpc and 800mg PS)

    This is my magic elixir, but I'll tell you, the main difference maker was the rhodiola. It took me 5 different brands before I found two that I really like and it took about 10 days to get the full effect, but now, I can't live without it. 15 minutes after I take it, I literally feel my mind just clear up and lose any distractions about stupid things that would pop into my head to interfere with my thought process. It's like not caring, yet caring more about what you need to - if that makes any sense.

    +1 on this. That would be appreciated.

    Well I went ahead and bit the bullet. Ordered Oxiracetam, Sulbutiamine, Choline Bitartrate, ALCAR, Bacopa, Phenibut, and Rhodiola. This will be interesting.

    Gaia is #1 then Jarrow. They both seem to have great effects that were markedly more pronounced over the other brands I tried. The reason I like the Gaia more is because the dose is perfect for me (120mg per cap), it is oil in the capsules and is very fast acting, and they have that "Meet Your Herb" program that you log onto their site and see the actual lab report for the potency and all the other details for your exact bottle.

    For some reason, the potency in the gaia 120mg seemed way more than in others 300mg+ caps.

    ALCAR dose is definitely excessive IMO, and likely pro-oxidant.

    Other than dosing down the ALCAR,, how did the rest of the nootropic stack look to you?
    What would be a good dosage for the ALCAR?

    Looks solid. I'd add a racetam to your stack but that's me (start with piracetam at two 2.5g doses daily). ALCAR is good at 2g.

    GABA doesn't have anabolic benefits. The GH studies are of little use to body composition in the longrun. Look into Picamilon for a better version of GABA...it is bound to niacin and actually crosses the BBB quite effectively. Primary effects of high-dosed GABA or low-dosed Picamilon will be relaxation and mood support.

    I like Cerebral Success. Its feels like a preworkout but with a brain boost rather than muscle boost. I prefer it over adderall

    Update, this stack roolz. I've noticed far greater memory retention and my logical reasoning has improved. I've also noticed my stress levels have been reduced dramatically, something a 'placebo' would never be able to do. I'm guessing that's the rhodiolo/bacopa working it's magic.

    I haven't even added in the sulbutiamine yet, just got it in. And supposedly that's one of the stronger nootropics, can't wait for that.

    One thing I have noticed is that my libido is just sick right now. I mean i can't stop jerking off. This has really started taking effect in the last week and it had to have come from one of these supplements. Alcar, oxiracetam, choline, rhodiolo, bacopa. I'm not really sure which it is but I don't think i've whacked it this much since I was 20 years old.

    I notice similar effects on ALCAR (increased libido). There is a study demonstrating that it aids in Erection Index in men and optimizes testosterone in rats.

    How much ALCAR? I get only this sense of mind sharpness. I take 2g in my breakfast shake.

    Interesting. ALCAR seems to have a ton of health benefits. Not surprising this was an added one.

    Also props Mr.Cooper. You're a benefit to this board. Much appreciated my man.

    2g. Keep in mind it was done in men with libido issues. ALCAR appears to have a "normalizing" effect on testosterone and related factors from the papers I've read.

    Thanks. I wonder then how it influences T boosters I am on now. Anyway, since I'm on it my mind actually works before noon ;-) Will have to look into *racetams too.

    algebra with peracetam?


    hay guys im new here, sorry for replying to such an old post but i couldnt figure out how to start a new thread.

    anyway i been trying to learn algebra for 10 years now. since 8th grade.. i cant do it.. its not sinking in, i guess i have a bad learning disability

    i just started using 2400 mg of peracitam and day with 800 mg of choline. also using sharp mind from solaray and taking some fish oil..


    will this stuff help me learn or understand math more easily? or can you recommend something that will help my brain make sense of this stuff? ..

    thanks for any and all help
