I've been asked a lot about my nootropics stack since mentioning I had gotten into it here on IG recently so here it is. I've laid it out with the name, dose, and effects that caused me to choose it for my stack.
For the uninitiated, nootropics are cognitive enhancers, some natural supplements, some not. Meaning they aid in memory enhancement, alertness, and increased brain synapses connections among many other possibilities depending on your stack. It's what the movie Limitless was loosely based off. Now I'll start by saying I'm no Bradley Cooper in Limitless but there are certainly noticeable effects. I also want to say, I recommend taking any nootropics 5 days out of the week generally, giving your body time to reset to ensure full effect when you need it most during the work week.
Dose: 300-900mg, once in the morning
Prodrug of Modafinil, meaning it turns into Modafinil once metabolized. Modafinil is a stimulant and wakefulness-promoting agent. It has been shown to eliminate most of the cognitive side-effects of short-term sleep deprivation.
Dose: 200mg, usually with 100mg of caffeine (coffee or preworkout should meet caffeine requirement)
Increases attention and mitigates the negative aspects of caffeine such as anxiety, increased blood pressure, and diminished sleep quality, while possibly improving on the positive aspects.
Dose: 2 grams, on an empty stomach
Works to increase memory, especially in the face of stress or sleep deprivation
Dose: 30mg, taken once or split in 3 throughout the day for no more than 56 days straight.
Provides a mild cognitive boost after supplementation. Beefed up version of Piracetam.
