Haha, ok. I bought a  great blend of Matcha and will try that recipe tomorrow. If I run around with a yellow face all day long, I will find you :) I still have to find a way to handle that nasty coloured stuff. Usually, I add it to a bowl of rice. Putting it in capsules is a pain, so I ended up making a paste which is much easier to deal with: http://drarjan.com/t...te-golden-milk/

Dan's eye health stack

Hello,

 

Hi Dan,

 

I'm looking for a stack aimed at preventing macular degeneration, do you think this would fit?

 

Right now I'm just taking Goji berry extract as I'm pretty young (36) but both sides of my family has the problem, so I'd like to be preventative. 

 

Thanks,

MB

 

I think this would be a good fit for preventing macular degeneration.

 

I recommend you to look up the AREDS I and II studies.

 

Also, here is a good source of info regarding eye problems: http://www.reviewofophthalmology.com/

I have tried Coluracetam. The effects on my eyes are very good. The visual fatigue practically disappears.

 

I'm making Coluracetam a permanent part of my stack.

 

The dosages I tried are:

 

- 100 mg 3 times a day (which I consider megadosing)

- 80 mg 3 times a day (as recommended in the clinical studies for major depressive disorder)

- 20 mg 2 times a day (as recommended by Ceretropic)

 

I prefer the lowest dosage (the higher one is a bit too much for me).

Hey are you still taking this stack? I decided i'll give it a try minus the caffeine and see if it helps me with the numerous buisness-related tasks as well as some reading I need to get done. I suffer from adhd-type symptoms, anxiety and various motor ticks so I might have to drop the optionals if they increase the prevalence of ticks or increase anxiety. Is this safe for long-term brain health? Withdrawal symptoms? Thanks.

why did you ditch the coluracetam? What are your thoughts on sublingual NSI? (why not?)

I wanted to try something different but I have an understanding on the effects of both and feel that Coluracetam is best, but stacked with some Choline source. Sublingual NSI is by far the best anti-depressive agent I have so far. CBD is pretty good as well.

I think the general rule for racetams is that they all affect people differently. And I'm pretty sure people have said to cease taking racetams if you experience any lasting side effects (effects lasting 2-3 days or something). Also I feel that some of them took an excess for their first time, which caused negative results. I can say myself that I took 2.4g of piracetam at first and had a terrible headache, cut it down to 1g, everything was much better. There is an n shaped dose response curve for racetams, after all.

 

It also doesn't make sense that some of them took it for 3 weeks and experienced chronic headaches... I mean, wouldn't you stop after having the first or second headache? Why push it to 3 weeks?

 

Plus, it's not like piracetam is the only nootropic out there, people can always switch to herbal nootropics or a different class of compounds altogether.

 Cant answer You that question, it seems problematic.

 

You could try :

- Rhodiola Rosea because it increases Dopamine via ( reversible) mao inhibition.

- egcg ( green tea polyphenols) because it releases glutamate and increases Shh( sonic hedgehog) in the Hippocampus

Keep in mind that this is a potent bloodthinner via reducing platelet count, among others

 

See this very informative site:

http://www.raysahelian.com/egcg.html

http://www.raysaheli...m/greentea.html

 

- Clausenamide, from Clausena lansium,  could be a herbal alternative

http://www.longecity...rbal-piracetam/

 

- Hupericine

Not sure whether its a everyday thing, I would rather cycle it and dont take any choline with it !

Because due possible chances of enduring cholinergic overactivation ( just my theory)

See: tabun/sarin/mustard-gas poisioning

 

I dont have much experience with them in regards of learning.

So its just hypothetical, because dopamine and glutamate are also implicated in learning.

 

Actually I just wanted to thank You for this very informative site,

but I guess the best thank would be by giving You those hints/suggestions ;-)

 

Hope they are actually helpful though ^^

I have read many times that L-theanine was a bit anti-social ? What is your opinion about that ?

I haven't heard anything about that at all. However, I have ditched most of this list now that I have tried other stuff. Wish you could edit and/or delete these stacks!

 

I highly recommend trying out Chaos and Pains Da vinci with some NSI-189 and Piracetam. It pretty much has the Picamilon inside it, with a load of other goodies for promoting mood! ;)

Current Stack / Thoughts on Dosage & Timing

I think tonight I'm going to try going up on dosage by 250mg on each one. ...

 

Move from 

1gm of Piracetam to 1.250 of Piracetam twice a day ( afternoon/night time)

250mg of Aniracetam to 500mg of Aniracetam twice a day. (afternoon / night time)

 

I will add choline to this stack at 250mg of it twice a day (Afternoon / night time)

 

What do you guys think about this dosage?

Sounds like a good idea, but how do you do a blind-test on yourself with a placebo?

Easy: Just put a sugar pill that seems like any of the ingredients and mark it with lets say a dot made with a fork or a knife. Eat it, and then at the end of the day look for that pill. If it is not there then you ate it, and if you felt anything then it was only placebo.

Did you figure out what was causing the muscle twitching? 

 

Without using the (optionals), muscle twitching is almost nonexistent. I usually experienced that when using too much caffeine because it synergized too well. The feeling is pretty close to coffee jitters and moderate doses of adderall so I recognized that it was most likely the caffeine.

 

Noopept seems to be the cause the minor emotional blunting so cycling may be needed (depending on the person).

 

Also, caffeine is extremely bitter so taste is significantly altered when I add 250+mg to a standard vitamin water... using standard 200mg caffeine pills is a good taste alternative (however you sacrifice the convenience of gradual consumption)

Phase these in one at a time over the span of many weeks (at least 10 days per; and, if you really want to work toward a good stack, do a separate blind-test on yourself with a placebo for each noot that you phase in).

 

Jumping into any stack is a mistake. You won't know where the positive, and more importantly, where any adverse side effects are coming from, with any degree of "certainty" at least.

I can't live without my coffee :) The L-Theanine seems to counter effect any anxiety I might normally get from taking too much caffeine. Combine that with Aniracetam, and I have no trouble having a conversation with a complete stranger. I've since added 10mg of Noopept twice a day.

Anti-Anxiety / Mood-enhancing Stack

Great! I'll think I'll add this to my list of things to try. Phenibut as a lot of us know is a tricky substance when not properly dealt with. I also just recently posted a stack on here as well that was suggested by someone else, which also included ingesting Phenibut daily. I've found though that I wasn't able to handle the side effects of a low dosage for even just a few days, so now I'm gonna start over soon when I buy the free amino acid version of it. What do you suggest cycling Phenibut with once tolerance is seen?

 

Well to be honest I have stuck with this dose and have cycled it so I don't become dependent on it. In addition, effects are more pronounced if you cycle it as you don't become tolerant to it. Not worth taking it "every day" as such as you will just become dependent on it and will suffer withdrawals. Only use once to three times a week max. :-)

 

If you have tolerance already then just don't take it for a few weeks and see what effects you have then. If still no effects then up the dosage to 900mg maximum amount. If not, then just rid it from the stack completely.

Coluracetam is very good. When I take it, it improves my vision and it's kinda like "HD vision" as such, color is greatly improved along with a good mood increase. It pretty goes well with any stack! Good for depression ;)

Study Stack v1

In my personal experience:

 

Positives:

- Can be dissolved in Vitamin Water (a full 20oz - XXX or DragonFruit flavor preferably... fruit punch is nasty) for easy consumption throughout the day (Tastes decent and leaves a mild chemical aftertaste that goes away quickly)

- Faster absorption due to liquid solution (Don't quote me on this - I'm not 100% sure)

- Mild to moderate euphoria (setting dependent)

- Great focus

- Promotes NGF and BDNF

- Increased short term/long term memory + music appreciation

- Improved color contrast/image sharpness in the center of vision**

 

Negatives:

- Excessive muscle stimulation (twitching)

- Tolerance. Ingredients labelled (Optional) should not be used daily to avoid tolerance. As always, cycle.

- Possible emotional blunting. Setting dependent.

 

TIP: If your study session is late at night and you experience tired/dry eyes or start feeling sleepy, before taking a swig of this, try going to the bathroom and washing your face. If that's impossible, try artificial tears/lubricating eye drops (not the ones meant to reduce redness). Refresh Plus or Systane Ultra (preservative free single-use vials) works well for me. 

 

Edit 8/9/14:

 

Extended description/breakdown of ingredients:

 

Melatonin 0.5-3mg -  I included this so that it would be easier to get to sleep after consuming the stack. It is also a powerful antioxidant. If you wake up in the morning after a full night's sleep (7 hours or so) feeling sleepy or your eyes won't open, turn on your cell phone/computer and use it for a minute. the bright white light will destroy the remaining enzymes keeping you asleep. - I forgot the name behind this mechanism but it's similar to how sunlight wakes you up in the morning.

 

Acetyl-L-Carnitine - I included this because of its antioxidant/neuroprotective properties, as well as how it assists in the synthesis of choline. Overall synergistic with the other ingredients.

 

CDP-Choline/Citicoline - This is the main choline source as well as a nootropic in its own right. Increases dopamine levels, improves vision, regulates glutathione, among others.

 

Reduced Glutathione - Good general purpose antioxidant. I use Jarrows brand capsules for convenience.

 

Oxiracetam - I picked this over other racetams because of several reasons. First, it is neutral-sweet tasting and won't change the taste of the vitamin water much. Second, it is water soluble. Third, it is stronger than piracetam and requires a lower dose to achieve the same effects. Fourth, it has stimulant properties.

 

Noopept - This didn't do much on it's own for me. When I added it to the stack, it noticeably improved focus. Also stimulates BDNF and NGF.

 

Phenylpiracetam - I labelled this as optional because of the tolerance issues (builds fast). It is a more potent form of piracetam and has stimulant properties. When added to the stack, motivation to complete tasks improved immensely. Mild euphoria was also present.

 

Sunifiram - This is optional also because of tolerance. it provided significant focus on its own. I felt that it improved focus and increased euphoria when combined with the main stack. 

 

Caffeine - I added this to the stack once on a whim. I have a natural caffeine tolerance so I usually require upwards of 300mg to feel threshold effects. I didn't think it would do much when I combined it but it synergized well and provided physical stimulation and mental alertness. Please dose accordingly, 200mg is strong for some individuals.

 

 

 

**as a result, my reading speed increased (I was reading words individually - similar to spreeder/spritz) but peripherals remained unchanged

 

--------------------

 

I hope this stack helps other college students out there. Good luck with studies!

 

Please post if you have tried this stack and your experiences, as well as any improvements that I can make on it. Thanks!

Anti-Glycation Synergy

Advanced Glycation End-products (AGE's) occur inside the body via several pathways and/or environmental conditions of the blood.  The factors in this stack have been documented to aid in the reduction of the formation of AGE's.

 

- A major constituent of atherosclerotic plaque is a build-up of glycated proteins (along with calcification).  Taking measures to prevent glycation will give High Density Lipoproteins an upper hand in working to reverse this plaque, thereby lowering risk of stroke and ischemia.

 

- Diabetics have high postprandial plasma glucose levels which results in accelerated glycation of anything and everything: from hemoglobin, to organs, to random proteins, etc.  As a result, secondary complications such as diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nephropathy, and diabetic retinopathy, arise.  Taking measures to prevent glycation will ensure a better prognosis for the diabetic in terms of risk of developing a secondary complication.
