1 Month

I've been using the Adaptogens Rhodiola, Eleuthero and Schisandra together for a month now. I've been taking them first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach with my big ass bottle of tea. I've discovered that consuming the Adaptogens as a tea is a whole lot more of a Nootropic experience. I've began starting my mornings with a...

Starting with this stack

I've been taking using Mind Lab Pro for a few weeks now. I've transitioned off Racetams for a few months, just for experimentation purposes and have been using Adaptogens daily which don't imbue as much energy which Mind Lab Pro makes up for. It's quiet good for verbal intelligence, I've used it a couple of times before I did...

Join the Adaptogen Revolution!

After reading this book, I'm very sold on trying Rhodiola itself. I've concluded after reading this book, writing a 3000 word article and spending many hours scouring Pubmed looking at studies that Rhodiola as a Nootropic has a biological risk-reward trade off tantamount to Piracetam or ALCAR - some of my favorite all time Nootropics. A lot of the...

Not an outstanding effect

I did as much as 50 milligrams once along with Tyrosine, ALCAR and BP coffee and while I was in a good focused mood for about 5 hours I was pretty underwhelmed - the Sunifiram didn't have an outstanding effect. I took it subliminally and it produces a not overwhelming, yet unpleasant burning sensation under the tongue. Luckily the...

A macro view of society in radical transition

I began reading this while I was finishing up Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and the parallels are significant. After reading this and Atlas Shrugged I'm coming to the conclusion that philosophical ideas are better communicated as fiction novels.

Like Modafinil minus the sweats

I tried Adrafinil for the first time yesterday, I did about 300 milligrams first thing in the morning, and found it pretty consistent with my experiences with Modafinil. It put me deep into the focus zone for about 6 hours (a little shorter than Modafinil). For the next 3 consecutive days I did the same dosage of Adrafinil and I...

The best free N-Back app

I trained with this Dual N-Back app for several weeks. It's a good way to get started with brain training. I wish it had a nightmode though...

I'm now a morning person!

I'm a person that's always kind of had issues with waking up... I would just hit the snooze button chronically, this has caused me to fail some classes and lose some jobs. The no snooze habit was suggested to me by Brad with RSD, which is pretty straight forward; you pick a time to wake up before going to bed...

Aminos in the morning!

The last few days I've been taking L-Tyrosine (900 milligrams) with ALCAR in the mornings. So far I've noticed a little of an energizing effect but it doesn't really compare to Racetams. I decided to take break from coffee, which I've attempted a couple of time before, it's usually rough. I started taking Tyrosine first thing in the mornings...
