Anyone seen "Limitless" or who has experience with nootropics?

I've used just about every nootropic there is. Although there are a selectfew that produce amazing results, I pose a warning to everyone wanting to dive into these substances. The recommendation of Aniracetam and Alpha-GPC is close to the extent of what I'd suggest to anyone wanting to increase their cognitive abilities. I highly recommend PQQ to anyone. It has had more of a positive impact on me than any other nootropic I've tried. If anyone has any quotations or want to know the effects of any nootropic feel free to ask.

PQQ isn't a nootropic.
Take it from someone who memorizes more than I care to admit:
Focus XT + Phenylpiracetam + Bronkaid or Adrena-G + DAA (<- an excellent nootropic, subjectively)
Aniracetam seems to be effective for working cognition; not so much for memory for me.

When I first started taking Ani last year, I felt that it was a noot, but as time has passed I think it leans more on the Anxiolytic side of things. It is the Alpha-GPC that really pushes it over to the noot side. In my opinion, Alpha-GPC is like the OG noot. I've been taking it for so many years, I can't imagine life without it- until I go a couple weeks and I'm reminded how great it is. Like freqfly, I think it is the ultimate simple stack.
I will add that I was kind of down on Focus-XT because I didn't like the huperzine-a and all the ALCAR in it. Both of those give me a little anxiety, but I found that if I cut the dose in half and use it before workouts it is amazing. I started adding it in before going to MMA training and I am grasping techniques much better than without it.

Giurgea's Nootropic Criteria:
1. Enhances learning and memory. 2. Enhance learned behaviors under conditions which are known to disrupt them. Example: hypoxia (oxygen deficiency). 3. Protect the brain from physical or chemical injury. 4. Enhance the tonic cortical/subcortical control mechanisms 5. Exhibit few side effects and extremely low toxicity, while lacking the pharmacology of typical psychotropic drugs (motor stimulation, sedation etc.).

And with Ani/GPC; they're two of the most effective supplements I've tried to improve memory, recall, attention, creativity, mood while decreasing anxiety as well. I'd add a few things like PQQ, Fish oil & caffeine (if anxiety isn't a problem), but otherwise I wouldn't add much of anything else. Having tried Alcar, Huperzine, Picamilon, Bacopa, DMAE, Citicoline, Vinpocetine & a few others; non had the same benefits I experienced with my suggested basic stack. Most nootropics are cholinergic, which too much of can be a very bad thing. Cases of panic disorder, PTSD & depression can all be caused by excess acetylcholine. I've experienced all 3 first hand, especially when going overboard with nootropics & frankly I don't want someone to go down those paths when it can be avoided by doing proper research and hearing from others who have experience with these substances.
