  1. 1st Nootropic stack for studying/motivation


    I'm thinking about running a Nootropic stack this coming fall for my school work.. I've been browsing around to see what other people have been adding into theirs.. Here's a list of what I'm considering. Opinions about additions/modifications to this stack are welcomed..

    Huperzine A
    Alpha-GPC
    CDP-Choline
    Oxi/Prima/Aniracetam
    tyrosine
    Pyritinol
    ALCAR
    Primatene (On 2 wks/off1)


    I've also heard some good things about Focus Xt


  2. You could post this into the regular supplement section; as this is more product suggestions rather than the MOA of these ingredients. But FWIW, Focus XT contains ALCAR, Choline and Huperzine A which makes it a great nootropic stack, add in some DAA, and your good to go.

  3. Any SNS reps have a promo code or anything I could use to purchase Focus Xt?

    No codes that I am aware of, but I see FXT as cheap as ~$20, pretty hard to beat that price for the product.

    Bring back 2 for $30.

  6. Alpha Brain from onnit labs works well for me.

    Could you describe your experience with it? You used caffeine free too right?

  10. Down the road I'm thinking about adding a racetam to the stack.. I know Piracetam is the oldest of all of them and the most popular. Ani I've heard helps w/ verbal fluency and clear thinking. Oxi I'm not too sure about.. Probably more for energy and motivation.. Pramiracetam seems to be all of these on steroids favoring the effects of Ani... Anyone tried these and could point out the noticeable differences?

    Ani is a pretty strong anxiolytic and definitely helps speaking and social interaction. It is great to take before speaking engagements or anytime there will will be social interaction and you want to feel calm and clear. I have not found that it offers much for studying or learning. Pramiracetam just made me feel anxious and a little out of sorts- similar to too much caffeine. Piracetam made me very groggy and sleepy with no desire to be in public. However, it did seem to make me want to focus on tasks when I was writing a few reports, so I imagine it could be decent for studying. I don't like it, though. Phenylpiracetam is my new favorite next to Ani. Within 20 min, you feel a mental clarity just sweep over you and you feel like everything is really easy to understand and your brain just works faster. Plus, it gives a nice clear physical energy that lasts 5-7 hours with no crash. It does seem to build a tolerance pretty quick, though. I like to take it for events that I really need a lot of overall energy for.

    For me- Ani and Alpha GPC everyday and I will mix in Phenylpiracetam when I need the energy.

  12. I'd like to bump this thread b/c I'm sure theres quite a few people who like nootropics but would like to know what each one provides.

    Focus xt is a staple for me. It's insane focus! I have been wanting to stack demiurge with it. Sulbutiamine stacked with it is insane!

    Can Sulbutiamine be picked up at GNC? I've read it can be helpful w/ brainfog...It's a derivative of B1 but apparently its crosses the BBB better than Thiamine would

  20. No, most noots you need to source online. The thought of stacking Focus XT and Demiurge sounds like an insane speedball to me. I have anxiety just thinking about it.

    I haven't felt/noticed anything yet either... :/

  24. I used Focus XT as a PWO because it doesn't do anything for me on a noot level. The energy is decent, but as far as cognitive benefits, I found none.

    Yea I wish I had read more reviews before making the purchase.... Oh well.. Lesson learned I guess

  26. It's crazy how everyone reacts differently to stuff. I get tunnel vision from focus XT. Enhanced however, gives me nothing. I might be the only person on the site that doesn't respond to it.

  27. I have a tub of ALCAR that I bought along w/ the Focus XT. I'm gonna go ahead and just use that on its own to see how it effects me..

    Just the nature of natural supplements. Alcar in general does nothing for me no matter the dose, and a lot of people on here rave about it.

    I'd like to throw out Rhodiola as something to add to the stack as well. While not known for cognitive benefits, it does really help the body cope with stress and we all know that stress kills concentration and hurts the mind. It's a staple for me and when I stop taking it, I can feel it.

    Yea rhodiola is marketed as a supp to help the adrenal glands and the efficient production of cortisol, etc.. I tried some this past Fall and honestly didn't notice anything... It's not to say it doesn't work, as we have all noticed these things are hit or miss..A home run or a strike out...

    I will say that PLCAR (despite being promoted as the Performance carnitine) I have noticed profound mental clarity.. Especially after a workout..My thoughts and translated into words better, memory recall is sharper, etc...Plus it leans you out a little bit despite caloric intake
