Everybody wants to start off with nootropics that just work. The truth is, there’s a lot of garbage stuff out there and many nootropics are hit or miss in terms of effects.
In this post I highlight a few top Reddit comments discussing the best nootropics on the market.
This guy highlights some truly powerful stuff here. He starts off with Cannabis – quite dubious in terms of nootropic value, he does however follow up with the heaviest hitters in the industry. Modafinil is the nootropics gold standard for raw mental energy and wakefulness. The days I take Modafinil I am on absolute fire and get insane loads of work done. Nicotine, Caffeine, and Phenibut are also extremely potent compounds. If we forget about the Cannabis, Phenibut is least like the others. While all of the compounds on the list are stimulating, Phenibut is anxiolytic and GABA driven. Overall this is a good list of nootropics to focus on if you want raw power and focused mental energy.
Similar to the list above with the addition of a powerful racetam – Phenylpiracetam that is. Phenylpiracetam was made for the athlete. It’s listed as a banned substance by the World Anti-Doping Agency and illegal to use in professional sports. Phenylpiracetam delivers a potent physical edge to your energy levels, maximizing power output and increasing strength. You can train for much longer periods of time on this stuff and it comes highly recommended across the board.
Now we’re getting into a handful of crucial adaptogens with strong nootropic potential. Of the ones mentioned I have the most experience with Ashwagandha. I think the stuff is absolutely fantastic, particularly the extracted forms known as KSM-66 and Sensoril. I’ve written extensively on these extracts, discussing every detail and difference in this post.
Well it wouldn’t be a good list unless someone mentioned L-Theanine. L-Theanine was one of the first nootropics I tried and holds a special place in my medicine cabinet. It’s just a staple nootropic and works magic smoothing out the anxiety induced by stimulating compounds. It’s most famously taken with Coffee and completely crushes negative side effects like anxiety and jitters.
By now you should start seeing a pattern. The most effective nootropic across the board, the most mentioned nootropic, the most highly coveted nootropic, is Modafinil. If you want something that’s sure to work from day 1, you need to pick up some Modalert 200mg ASAP. Check out my Modalert review for an in depth look at the compound and my direct experiences using this heavy hitting nootropic.
