Ive seen several discussions on Paleohacks in regards to that we may need to supplement even optimal diets as A) our soil is depleted and B) we are under more stress and less ideal environments that we evolved to handle. In regards to B) does anyone give themselves a boost using nootropics? Ive tried some years ago and didnt get much benefit but this product looks interesting (ingredients listed on the side of webpage) and is getting good reviews. The casing looks really artificial though and Id probably just make my own mix from smart powders or some other site
Over the counter: caffeine, ephedrine, nicotine.
Prescription: Amphetamines, modafinil.
Honorable mention: green tea
Everything else is a waste of money/time/effort. Don't spend time researching nootropics spend time studying.
Here are some examples in regards to ADHD. Alpha GPC is mentioned in this article which many also take with Piracetam to boost mental acuity.
Nootropics work best in a stack and can be found in variety of different over the counter smart pills and Adderall Alternatives. There are dozens of options available now, but PROFIDERALL pioneered the use of Nootropics as a means for healthy over achievers to improve cognitive function and is still the #1 Cognitive Energy Enhancer.
yes i use body quick, which is basically like profiderall but with some chinese herbs and no piracetam. this post reminded me i have some bulk piracetam i never opened when i moved apartments so i just dosed 800mgs.
re: bodyquick - i have found that it definitely creates an altered state, like a lucid dreaming state where time perception is altered as well as mood. i wouldnt say i'm uber focused like some OCDroid, but that i could choose to be focused on what i want to, relative to everythging else going on in my body. i have some chronic conditions that create chronic fatigue and depression amongst other symptoms, so bodyquick helps my brain "relax" without feeling tired or fatigued. it helps my creativity but needs to be spaced out or it won't work due to tolerance.
the real benefit for me i think comes from the huperzine. i once mega dosed some huperzine for kicks and had a very very good time, but then again i am experienced in crazy ass meditation and hallucinogenic spirituality. your mileage will vary.
Using piracetam daily.
Using hydergine with it from time to time, not always as it might have negative side effects with chronic use (although those are not confirmed, pulmonary fibrosis).
I would use Idebenone if I had source and lots of other things.
I tried once GetSmart.... that shit is more then awesome.... you level up ! Stopped using it as I was scared, I was stinking too much 'on chemistry' - everything - urine, sweet.... my friend didn't mind that and continued. He still thinks its aweso
I always liked selegeline and modafinil seemed a great combo at the time, enabled me to get inhuman amounts of work done. I'm older and hopefully a touch wiser and now wouldn't touch these as they are hairs breadth from amphetamines.
