I hope I'm posting this correctly. I'm new to this forum.

No, I haven't, and wouldn't, looking at the ingredients, I believe a tasty tuna sandwich would do you more good.

An effective supplement has to cross the Blood-Brain barrier, or otherwise tell the body to produce something that will. Next, that supplement must actually do something to improve brain function, primarily speaking, help it get more signals through.

Stims such as Adderal will help increasing extracellular levels of the biogenic amines dopamine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dopamine), norepinephrine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norepinephrine), and serotonin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serotonin) .

Personally, think isn't nearly enough for me, but taking more stims is counter productive, I get irritable and have even more wandering thoughts... nice when your trying to be creative, but sucky for productivity.


I personally take 1200mg of Alpha GPC, 500mg of Phosphatidylserine, 1000mg of Creatine, 5-http, and a mega B vitamin. All of these in one way or another are 'officially' recognized as helping with cognition and/or memory.

Right now I'm looking at Jarrows Neuro Optimize, I hate to do a free commercial but it has something called citicoline (jarrow calls it cognizin). It apparently increases the density of dopamine receptors. (officially recognized)

Now until some doctor(s) finally figures out what the real problem is, I'll tell you what, the combination of enhancing the level of neurotransmitters AND the receptors seem to work pretty damn good for me. Not perfect, but not bad at all!

Final note, to anyone, I suggest research on Stimulants and Nootropic. Wikipedia is awesome for this stuff

It's a homeopathic "remedy", in which the "active ingredients" are so diluted that you'd get the same effect by waving them over a glass of water, then drinking it.

Scientific studies have shown homeopathic "medicine" to be no more effective than a placebo.

Just looked this up, and the dilutions guarantee that you could fill the entire ocean with this stuff and find not a single molecule of the original ingredients in all that water.
