Looking for the best nootropic
i already tried:
Didnt do much for me if anything. Is there a noot out there which i can really FEEL WORKING?
Im looking for:
-improved memory (learning)
-recovery of lost memory
-better concentration (anti-ADS)
I seem also to be a non-responder to
What do you think about phenylpiracetam?
con: price, builds tolerance up quick
Which noot has to be taken regularly with improved effects and which only occasional?

I would have said adrafinil but if you don't respond to modafinil than it won't do you any good... From what I've read people's responses to noot's vary from person to person, you'll just have to do some more trial and error. I've only been using noot's for a little over a month now and I can tell most of what you're going to get will probably be more subtle than something like caffeine. They mostly come on really slow and you have to take them for a few weeks to even begin to notice the subtle changes.Follow me on my log to life and lift: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/workout-logs/229476-mtinsideouts-log-life.html

Focus XT was designed with learning, focus and recall in mind. It literally got me through my exams. I used 500g Alcar + FXT pre study and crammed for 1 exam for 2 days. I had 64 pages of writing I had to 'memorize' in order to cover the topic in depth. I had no time to learn it all, but in those 2 days I could practically recite the 64 pages of single spaced size 12 font by memory.
I challenge you to give it a try but remember that learning also comes from your ability to read information in a variety of ways and expecting to learn something or commit it to memory after reading it once is not always possible.
Read the information, read information surrounding the topic area and the areas it interacts with (i.e. if you are say, learning how red blood cells work, then you should learn what a red blood cell is, how it travels in the body, how oxygen binds to it, how Co2 binds to it, the components of a RBC, etc). Learning more enables you to put it into context which makes recall much easier as you have more opportunity for any stage in that process to trigger recall.
Also, read it aloud, teach somebody the information and draw diagrams.
Don't expect a supplement to learn for you; just expect it to help so long as your learning processes are effective.Serious Nutrition Solutions Representative

I was always a hug proponent of Focus XT well before I started with SNS. It has various application of use. For 3 years or so in college, I used it strictly as a pre-class/pre-study aid (rarely pre-workout). It was always very useful for those 8am classes for sure. Now I use it in an office setting or for pre workout usage (5AM lifts come early).

How exactly do you "feel" a noot? I think you want a stim...

No effect off of noopept? Did you use it under the tongue?
Selank and Semax nose drops are good
I like taking bromanatan before workouts.
Bacopa, rhodiola, ashwagandha, ginseng, are all standard herbs for such purposes.
Also, I noticed that actual plain old piracetam is absent from your list; try out 2.5 grams at once and see if you dont feel the clarity and such that it brings many people.

There is no "best" per se as it depends on the individual. I've tried everything and for me Bacopa and gotu kola provide the sort of benefits you are describing. If I add in a racetam and some choline, the memory benefits are enhanced.

Sulbutamine with Caffein works well for but not by itself, same with Alpha GPC.

What does everyone think about -- http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/l...-servings.html ? Don't have much experience with nootropics but this one piqued my interest.

Demiurge is by far my favorite nootropic and I generally use it the day of big exams. Nootropics are widely individualized but most people seem to like Demiurge as well. I suggest giving it a try as I have done much better on exams whilst taking it.

I liked the combination of pramiracetam + Focus XT the best personally.

Focus XT with added Alcar, if needed, is a great starting place for beginners. I can't recommend them enough.

-250mg aniracetam with little olive oil mixed (if you overdose you'll have hungover 5 hours later, feeling anxoius and you'll feel as starving)
-coluracetam (very, very little 10mg)
-piracetam with water , just 200 mg
-I always have coffee
Oxytacetam felt nothing, phenylpiracetam (good but could induce panic attacks), pramiracetam (good one, just not for every day)

For me it felt a bit like phenylpiracetam...very alert, focused, but kinda anxious and edgy. If the mood aspects are negative, I tend to only use for intense study/focus situations.
