    Nootropics for studying, question...

    I'm looking at picking up some Nootropics to help me with studying / school, but I have a few questions that I would like help with below.

    I am looking at getting:

    - Pyritinol - http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/uniq/py.html or Pyritinol (powder) - http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/uniq/pyritinol.html
    - L-Huperzine A - http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/uniq/hup.html
    - L-Theanine - http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/uniq/theanine.html
    - PEA - http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/uniq/pea.html

    This is the dosing I'm planning on doing:

    - Pyritinol - 1,200mg at a time. Can be taken with L-Huperzine.
    - L-Huperzine A - 200-400mcg an hour or so before studying (feel free to go up to around 600mcg). Take with food.
    - L-Theanine - Use the Theanine whenever you need to relax your mind and body after a long study session. It will help get rid of anxiety, nervousness, worrying, etc.
    - PEA - Feel free to use 1,500mg on an empty stomach followed up with 500mg 15 minutes later

    My questions:
    1. Should I get the pyritinol caps or POWDER?
    2. How many days should I cycle off each?
    3. What could I take to help me with mental energy to keep me awake when I may not feel like studying or doing work?
    4. How is my dosing plan?
    5. Any other Nootropics I could look at for help with school?


    Thanks in advance!

    1. I would go with caps or if you do buy the powder cap it. The powder tastes well bad.
    2. 2-3.
    3. Pyritinol, L-DOPA, PEA, Sulbutamine, Centrophenoxine, and many other compounds may be helpful.
    4. I would start the Pyritinol at 400 gm and increase as needed to get an effect. You may want to start with 1 nootropic and add the rest 1 week later so your brain and body get used to identifying the changes with each one.
    5. Alpha GPC or CDP-Choline, Vinpocetine, Picamilon, may be of benefit.

    Look into Ortho-Mind by AOR.

    I have a question, when taking these study supplements, how long do you have to wait before it starts taking effect?

    Does memory improve from the very first dose? or I need to be on it for say at least 1 week?

    Thanks, what about Piracetam? http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/prima/piracetam.html I was looking it up and have read some good reviews on it. Would it be okay to take that along with the others I'm looking at taking?

    I would highly recommend Bacopa monniera because it has other positive benefits other than being a great nootropic, plus it is very cheap when buying it as a bulk powder.

    I would also consider Aniracetam or the more powerful Pramiracetam. The cheapest and most effective I have tried is sold by Smart Powders.

    I don't think you really want that many different compounds all going into your brain at once. I would try 1 or 2 at a time to see how you respond to each one and determine if what your taking is effective for you.

    Depends on the supplement if it's a nootropics an hour to a few days. Brain supplements can work within a day to a month for a noticed effect. The longer you stay on it to find your ideal dose the more probably you'll see the best effects.
