Nootropic Log #1: The Introduction to My Stacks

posted in: Case Study | 0


Stacks on stacks on stacks. I’m approaching 30 years old, and I’ve noticed certain cognitive abilities of mine have seem to decline. I’m sure it’s not all due to age (I have an outside vice or two that may contribute to the memory), but overall, I am looking to improve, not only my mental fog, but my stifled creativity. Some years ago, I wrote songs on the regular from production to songwriting to “singing.” These days, I can crank out a few instrumentals and write lines and melodies here and there, but nothing to completion.

Further, I’m pretty positive that I’m deficient in a lot of food that my brain needs to eat, so I want to “hack” my brain and feed it the best food it can eat. I’m documenting my experience here in order to help others tweak their formula and attain the same results, or better. I think a lot of people can benefit from nootropics (smart drugs) without harming their body with crap like pharmaceuticals.

Last night I took 500mg of Choline Bitartrate, along with 1.6g of piracetam. From what I’ve read, a good noticeable dose of piracetam is something like 4.8g 2 to 3 times daily; unfortunately, at that dose, my 180 caps will only last 15 days. I also read piracetam takes a while to build up in your system before you notice the effects, so I’m starting low. I may try Noopept next time I make a purchase, depending on how this trial goes. I am not keen on taking massive amounts of pills, so Noopept’s potency will probably help in that area. I’ll keep you updated.

Friday, March 27th:

  • 1.6g piracetam (Powder City)
  • 500mg choline bitartrate (Powder City)
  • 100mg l-theanine (Enzymatic Therapy)

Saturday, March 28th (morning):

  • 4g piracetam
  • 500mg choline bitartrate
  • 100mg l-theanine
  • coffee for caffeine

Saturday, March 28th (afternoon):

  • 3.2g piracetam
  • 200mg l-theanine
  • 1 super b-complex

I’m adding a b-complex for the light sensitivity I’ve been experiencing lately. I’ve had issues looking at my computer screen for too long to the point it is affecting my work. I read it could be a B2 (riboflavin) deficiency, so I decided to throw it in. PS – a b-complex really is an essential vitamin to take anyway. It’s useful in a thousand ways.

Below are my morning results for 2 popular iOS games, Elevate and Fit Brains. I will use it as a gauge to see if I will improve in any of these areas. Of course, the current results I have include my past games, which I didn’t play consistently. I will try to be as consistent as possible for accuracy.
