Oxiracetam Review – The Speedy Git’r’Done Nootropic

Oxiracetam was one of the last nootropics I experimented with. I had been hearing mixed reviews about this particular racetam and had some reservation about experimenting.

Only after I tried all the other racetams did I give Oxiracetam a shot. Out of all the racetams I would say it’s the most unique. It’s effects are immediate and come in powerful bursts of mental energy. This was a surprise as I wasn’t expecting any kind of effect all.

While other racetams like Piracetam compound over time, Oxiractetam seemed to go into effect immediately.

While other racetams also have significant effects on memory, I didn’t notice any of these same qualities in Oxiracetam.

Why use Oxiracetam?

This nootropic is great for short bursts of mental energy. Stacked with a cup of strong coffee, this is a powerful nootropic for smashing through work and getting stuff down.

Out of all the racetams, this particular variety was the only kind to get me off my ass and clean my room. In fact, I was happy to do so and even had leftover mental reserves to make a few calls I had been putting off.

For me, making calls and sending emails are the last things I want to do with my time. Talking to people on the phone is mentally draining and after a few long phone sessions, I’m nearly drained of life completely.

This racetam allowed me to power through the tedious tasks that I usually dread with ease.

Stacks well with….

Caffeine. Like I mentioned, caffeine and Oxiracetam seem to go hand in hand. Both are stimulatory in nature and provide the mental groundwork required to hammer through your projects and get stuff done.

Choline is another great supplement to stack with this nootropic. In fact, all racetam types benefit from a quality choline source. These racetams ramp up the amount of Acetycholine usage in the brain – the neurotransmitter responsible for nootropic effects. Choline is the primary precursor to making Acetycholine so give your brain what it needs.

Where to buy Oxiracetam

Peak Nootropics has stocked Oxiracetam for a long time and consistently provides the best quality year after year. While other nootropic companies come and go, Peak Nootropics has stood strong in a shaky market.

Pramiracetam Review – The Nootropic That Just Works

Do you experience daily brain fog? Like your brain is not firing on all cylinders? For me, a fuzzy and clouded brain was part of my daily experience until I discovered these racetam type compounds. Racetams have unique properties that clean out the cobwebs of your brain and organize your thoughts into coherent trains of consciousness.

Pramiracetam is another racetam derived compound and one of the most powerful. In fact, I rarely take Pramiracetam unless I need to go into a state of complete manic focus for days at a time. It’s the strongest racetam on the market and delivers potent memory enhancements. For me, it throws me into a state of complete manic euphoria. I can work for hours at a time with a single focus.

Boring tasks become interesting and I can recall bits of information that were encoded years ago in memory. That’s one thing about the racetams – they tend to make you remember random events or pieces of information well in the past. You’ll find yourself walking one day and all of the sudden a memory will pop out of nowhere.

“Wow, I completely forgot about that.”

Great stuff for bringing all those repressed memories to the surface for examination. For this reason, Pramiracetam is great for change work. I was cursed (or blessed depending on how you look at it) with a terrible memory. Without supplementation it’s difficult to recall what I did even 3 days ago. Short of something extraordinary happening to me, the days seem to blend themselves together in an incoherent stream of life.

Maybe you struggle with memory and focus as well? If not, I’m not sure if Pramiracetam is the right nootropic for you. In fact, if you’re already “firing on all cylinders” you might not get a lot out of using Pramiracetam, or any nootropic for that matter.

This stuff is for the individual with cognitive deficits. You’ll turn from a dull dusty Windows 3.1 box into a powerhouse data crunching super computer.

Yes, this stuff is great.

But what about the mania? Yes, Pramiracetam seems to throw me into the grips of a full blown manic episode. Being bipolar I’m very familiar with this state of being, and also very familiar with the subsequent depression that follows these types of experiences. For this reason, I avoid using Pramiracetam for long periods of time, usually only dosing a few times a month when I have to cram or get a lot of work done.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much unless you’re prone to the same type of mental disposition.

Is Pramiracetam worth experimenting with?

I’ve got to say yes. It’s one of those nootropics that appear to have an effect on many different types of individuals across the board. You might have noticed many nootropics are hit or miss.

Pramiracetam is a refreshing change from this inconsistency and a great choice for someone looking for a nootropic that “just works.”

What is Pramiracetam used for?

Pramiracetam is used by the student or career professional who wants to accelerate the process of  learning and retaining information. It induces the perfect environment for absorbing information and encoding it in a way the brain can recall.

Brain fog? Pramiracetam blasts straight through the cobwebs leaving the mind as a clean slate for absorbing new information.

Pramiracetam does not make you smarter. It puts your brain into a receptive state for learning. You still have to feed it the right stuff. Take Pramiracetam and do something to further your knowledge. Learn a language, learn to program, write a book, etc.

These are the tasks Pramiracetam is best suited for. It’s the silicon valley wonder supplement with many startup companies using it to put in long hours at the computer.

Stimulating

Pramiracetam has a stimulating quality to it. Not physically but mentally. It’s almost like a long lasting espresso shot. Really, it feels like the curtains of the mind are opened to allow in the light of clarity.

I like to take Pramiracetam first thing in the morning as the stimulatory properties of this nootropic are well suited to waking you up.

Where to buy Pramiracetam

A lot of nootropics vendors have stopped stocking their Pramiracetam or have otherwise gone out of business. Only Peak Nootropics has been consistently delivering the goods and it’s where I get all of my product.

L-Theanine and Caffeine Stack Review

If Piracetam and Choline is the Godfather nootropic stack, L-theanine and Caffeine is his right hand man. This is another stack where two solid nootropics come together in one of the most synergistic ways. Chances are you are very familiar with caffeine and its unique effects on mental energy and focus.

In fact, there are few places you can go where caffeine can’t be purchased at very reasonable prices. Talk about an addicts wet dream. Every other block in a major city reveals a Starbucks, coffee shop, 7/11, and other places who sling this popular substance. Even people who “don’t do drugs” wake up and fiend for it.

I love caffeine but make no mistake – daily use of caffeine and coffee can wreak havoc on your adrenals, disrupt healthy sleeping patterns, increase cortisol, and amp your anxiety to dangerous levels. These side effects compound over time and can lead to serious health problems. Okay, so what can we do about this?

Enter L-Theanine…

L-Theanine is a naturally occurring compound commonly found in green tea. At the low doses found in green tea it doesn’t do much. At higher doses however, L-Theanine produces profoundly calming effects on the mind. Studies have proved L-Theanine produces Alpha brain waves in the mind and calms you down.

Most interesting is when you combine L-Theanine with caffeine. In my experience this stack completely crushes all the negative effective effects of caffeine while retaining and amping up the positives. I personally transform into a complete jitter bug if I have a high dose of caffeine, especially if I’m already stressed or haven’t eaten yet.

L-Theanine has been the magic pill allowing many people to reap the benefits of caffeine while crushing all the negatives.

Dosing

L-theanine is best taken at the 100 – 200 mg range. Anything lower than 100mg is hardly noticed while effects do not appear to compound or increase with higher doses. Caffeine doses can vary but a typical cup of drip coffee generally contains anywhere from 100 – 175 mg. If you want you can purchase caffeine pills to really experiment with the best dose.

Since many people are coffee drinkers L-Theanine is typically stacked with the morning cup of coffee. Nothing wrong with this. There is no exact ratio that works well for everyone, especially this stack.

Are you the type of person who gets anxious and jittery on caffeine? (btw, L-theanine is a great anti-anxiety supplement by itself.)

Do yourself a favor and snatch up some L-Theanine. You can buy the raw powder or you purchase 200mg capsules.

Thanks for reading and happy dosing!

Best Nootropics Stack For Studying, Focus, and Energy

Today I’m excited to talk about another one of my favorite nootropics stacks. This is a stack tolerated fairly well by many people and one of my go-to staples for studying, focus, and sustained energy.

Because who couldn’t use a little more of that? I knew going in to the creation of this stack I needed to hit on a few core components:

  • Memory and focus
  • Energy
  • …and an effect I call sit down, shut up, and get to work

For memory and focus I turned to my staple nootropic Piracetam. Piracetam is the Godfather nootropic and for many good reasons. Your mental faculties get ramped up and your ability to hold multiple pieces of information in working memory is boosted. Piracetam has compounded effects and best used over time. The effects of Piracetam are also not limited to the duration of use. You’ll notice an easier time recalling information days after cessation and summoning the right words is a breeze.

For me, I used to feel like I knew what to say but couldn’t find the words fast enough. This led to others finishing my words for me or dominating conversations while I fumbled around in my brain for something funny or relevant. Piracetam has remedied this problem and I couldn’t be more grateful. Highly recommended stuff.

For raw mental and physical energy I turn to another one of my staples – Sulbutiamine. Sulbutiamine is a synthetic version of Vitamin B1 and readily crosses the blood brain barrier. The energy you feel is very natural. It’s not a dirty energy like caffeine or other stimulants. Vitamin B1 is mainly responsible for converting carbohydrates into energy. Because of this, I like to take Sulbutiamine with a big bowl of fruit. This is a hidden double whammy. Not only will Sulbutiamine convert this food into raw energy but the glucose from the fruit is one of your brains favorite fuels.

No studying stack should be without a bit of carbs and sugars. Back in highschool I remember they would hand out snacks for the SAT testing but only AFTER we finished the test. It was the dumbest thing ever. They should have been feeding everybody tons of fruit and dosing us with this stack.

Moving right along the next core nootropic in this stack is L-Tyrosine. While more of a supplement, L-Tyrosine is crucial amino acid┬áresponsible for the production of dopamine. Dopamine is going to amp up your motivation and calm you down significantly. In fact, L-Tyrosine is a great energetic supplement and can even help with anxiety. L-Tyrosine is a calm energy. It’s not a supplement you’re going to take and start bouncing off the walls. It’s that “sit down and do the work” type of energy.

I’m noticeably less fidgety and more able to sit down for long periods of time. Of course, please get up and stretch from time to time if you sit down a lot. You may notice most of my videos are shot outside. I sit down a lot so towards the end of the day I get out of the house and go for very long walks. There’s something about walking that calms the mind and allows ideas to bubble to the surface. I would recommend walking to anybody.

The final nootropic to round out this stack is good ol’ caffeine. You can take this either in capsule form or hit up your favorite coffee shop. I like capsules because I can easily dial in the dose. Once I find a dose that works I can replicate it at anytime because of my experimentation. You really never know how much caffeine you’re getting in the drip format.

Caffeine is going to take the energy you get from this stack and amp things up to the next level. A little like hitting the turbo boost button. If you’re extremely sensitive to caffeine consider adding L-Theanine – a nootropic well known to smooth out the negative side effects of caffeine. Seriously. No shakes, no jitters, no anxiety. Powerful stuff.

Dosage recommendation (lower limit)

  • Piracetam – 2 – 4G
  • Sulbutiamine – 400mg
  • L-Tyrosine – 500 – 1000mg
