Top 10 Nootropics At Nootropics Depot!

phenibut phenylpiracetam combo stack

Nootropics Depot is easily one of the most reliable vendors in the industry and recently have been cranking out some impressive stacks. Below I’ve compiled a list of some of my personal favorites from this heavy hitting vendor.

1.) DynaMax  A potent combination of Caffeine, L-Theanine, and a compound called Methylliberine. The capsules contain both an immediate release and extended release version of Caffeine. This provides and instant jolt of energy while the XR (extended release) continues to dose out long lasting effects. The L-Theanine of course completely smooths out the jitters from the stimulating nature of the Caffeine. A very nice stack to power through moments of low energy and lethargy.

2.) MicroMag  Magnesium is a staple in my anti-anxiety arsenal. The problem is, many Magnesium supplements have poor absorption. MicroMag takes a popular form of Magnesium called Magnesium Oxide and makes it extremely bio-available. This results in almost instantaneous relaxation and calmness. This form of Magnesium is also much easier on the stomach and doesn’t have the laxative effect like many other forms of this mineral.

3.) Caffeine + L-Tyrosine Solution – This liquid stack delivers a safe and powerful jolt to the brain. This is a liquid solution you drop under the tongue. Taking Nootropics in this way allows for a deep absorption into the blood stream and pronounced effects. L-Tyrosine is mentally energizing due to it being a direct building block to Dopamine. You’re going to feel a solid 3 – 4 hour boost in motivation and as the Mens Warehouse guy says, I guarantee it.

4.) Piracetam Powder – Good ol’ Piracetam. My absolute favorite synthetic Nootropic. This stuff gets both sides of the brain communicating, increases oxygen to the brain, and delivers a cognitive boost you simply won’t get from anything else. It stacks well with many other Nootropics too. In fact, It’s the only Nootropic I keep right on my desk for easy access.

5.) KSM-66 – This is a potent Ashwagandha extract. Ashwagandha is also called Indian Ginseng and a well known calming agent. Ashwagandha has been shown to reduce stress levels by directly lowering cortisol and modulating other stress related hormones. A solid natural method of taking the edge off your day to day stress.

6.) Phenylpiracetam – Phenylpiracetam ranks high on my list of absolute favorite Nootropics. Phenylpiracetam is the most stimulating racetam of the bunch and increases physical vigor alongside mental acuity. It’s punchy stuff. Stacks nicely with Piracetam. I will typically take 200mg of Phenylpiracetam with 1 – 2 Grams of Piracetam for all day relentless energy levels.

7.) NAC – This one was an absolute game changer for my anxiety. N-Acetyl-Cysteine reduces obsessive behavior, calms anxiety, and can treat addiction. It’s a precursor to Glutathione – the bodies most potent anti-oxidant. Taken before a night of drinking, this stuff basically crushes hangovers by optimizing the elimination of alcohol and free radical damage.

8.) Phenibut – Of course Phenibut must be included on this list. While it’s more of a drug/nootropic hybrid, Phenibut absolutely crushes anxiety. It’s one of the most popular Nootropic and the Nootropics Depot HCL capsules are very good.

9.) Fasoracetam – The king of the calming racetams. Fasoracetam chills out the brain without sedating you. I like to stack it with Phenibut. It makes the brain much more sensitive to Phenibut so you need less…resulting in far less rebound anxiety.

10.) CDP-Choline – A source of Choline must get an honorable mention. I prefer CDP-Choline over other sources due its Dopaminergic component. It converts to Uridine which contributes to overall Dopamine stimulation. It’s a solid energizing compound with strong motivational elements. Take with L-Tyrosine and in you’re in for quite a treat.

Check out Nootropics Depot today to see what kind of deals they are running. Prices are always very reasonable and the quality unmatched. They also give you free shipping on orders over $50 bucks so I always take advantage of that considering shipping can range from $7 – $15.

Until next time.

Powder City Returns From The Dead? (2019 Update)

Powder City

Powder City gained massive traction and built a highly respected name for themselves in the Nootropics industry. They stocked pretty much any Nootropic you could think of, including compounds like Tianeptine. This caught up to them and they ended up crumbling under the heavy load of one particular lawsuit involving Tianeptine and the death of a 28 year old man. Full story here.

Their website had remained closed for quite some time after the lawsuit. Just for fun I punched in their URL to see what would happen. I was greeted with a completely different website layout. In fact, I looked at the URL to make sure I typed everything correctly. The old site had a distinct design, logo, and layout, and this surely was not it. Yes, I had typed things correctly. This WAS Powder City but something was going on…

The Big List Of Russian Nootropics

Russian Semax

Russian Nootropics have a certain mystical appeal that draws people in. Everyone wants to know what’s going on with Russian Nootropics, as if they are better than Nootropics made in other countries (this is mostly true.) In my mind I imagine a super genius named Boris cooking up the best brain supplements in a lab unshackled by the limiting restrictions of the FDA and other governing bodies. In this lab he has access to cutting edge equipment and he does as he pleases. His whole life and professional career revolve around synthesizing the best Nootropic compounds in the world.

Fantasies aside, it is true that the Russians have created some interesting compounds for very specific purposes. In this post I’m going to list some of the most popular Russian Nootropics and provide a brief description of their usage.

All Nootropics on this list can be purchased from Russian companies like Rupharma.

Best Herbs and Nootropics For Libido and Sex Drive

Lost Empire Ashwagandha Tincture

A good amount of comments I get through email and on the YouTube channel involve Nootropics to enhance the libido and overall sex drive. Looking at the demographics of my audience I see many of them are in the 30+ age range. This is about the time sex drive begins to decline, especially in men from what I’ve researched. In this post I’m highlighting a few key Nootropics and herbs which have helped me in this area.

1.) MACA

Lost Empire Black Maca

Maca is a root and grows high up in the Andes mountains of Peru. It’s one of the few plants able to sustain life at such harsh altitudes. It’s traditionally used in foods and mixed into a number of dishes. Only recently has the world market became excited about this plant, and now it’s one of Perus main exports of goods.

Macas ability to increase libido remains unknown. Looking at its properties and effects in the body, we see there is no reason for this libido boosting effect to take place. Despite the lack of evidence you cannot deny the many reports of people who have taken Maca, and noticed potent changes to their sex drive. Maca increase sex drive to relentless levels. I find only a tablespoon of the stuff does the trick. The powder is mild goes completely unoticed in smoothies.

If I take Maca for more than a few days in a row I become irritable and easily agitated. For me, it’s one of those roots best used sparingly although your mileage may vary.

My recommendation is to purchase the gelatinized version of the Maca as it’s much easier absorbed by the gut.

2.) Tongkat Ali

This is another staple herb to have in your “thunder down under” medicinal cabinet. Unlike Maca its effects have been somewhat studied. Tongkat Ali increases the amount of free testosterone in the body leading to its notable sexual enhancement effects and benefits. It also appears to protect against the damages of Cortisol and chronic stress. Elevated levels of Cortisol can easily shut down your desire to have sex. Sex is an action best enjoyed during a state of calm tranquility. Be sure to get a high quality version. This is a must have herb in your overall arsenal. Check out this study for some interesting reads.

3.) Pine Pollen

Lost Empire Pine Pollen Review

Pine Pollen is the latest craze to hit the market and I was obviously skeptical at first. Pine Pollen is essentially the sex hormone from the pine tree and contains potent phtyoandrogens which deliver anabolic responses in the body. Studies show these effects are minimal at best but many people report positive sexual effects from supplementing with the herb. Using this stuff personally, there is an energetic effect to the herb and a modest boost in sex drive. Overall It’s a great herb to have around to support overall energy levels. It’s also loaded with amino acids and other essential vitamins and minerals. Sometimes simply correcting these deficiencies can lead to massive libido gains, and overall health in general.

4.) Phenibut

This one is going last on the list because it’s not exactly a sustainable solution. There is something going on with Phenibut which really makes you super horny. Even though we traditionally think of Phenibut as a sedative nootropic, there are some people who become stimulated when using Phenibut. This could be a partial response to a slight increase in Dopamine, or other systems of action we don’t quite understand yet. Regardless, you will find many other reports online of people experiencing similar results. Phenibut is addicting so I always recommend executing extreme caution.


There are no doubt a ton of other supplements I could include on this list but I’ve personally found these work well for me. As always, a steady regiment of exercise and eating right always goes a long way. If you’re overweight this will no doubt contribute to a lack of sex drive. Keeping stress levels low is also crucial. Things like Ashwagandha can reduced the stress response in the body and allow other sex hormones to make an appearance. I’ve always said this, stress is the number one killer. Get that under control and the rest will easily fall into place.

Thanks for reading.
