redpill me on nootropics brainlets?

Where do I send my money for a bigger brain?

You should only get things with actual, noted physiological effects that can be beneficial. Examinedotcom is a good site to look certain things up

I used to have a shitload, but now for the most part I just keep them on hand to supplement my diet occasionally. Acetyl-l-carnitine and creatine come in handy when sleep-deprived or otherwise fatigued. Magnesium is a must since you're probably not getting enough. Many people swear by caffeine+L-theanine and I do too. I've dropped huperzine A and l-tyrosine, think maybe I should try going back to uridine, and don't get any psychological benefits from ashwaganda so I just take it every so often because it's healthy

hook your brain up to a brain-computer-interface and use AI to augment your brain

also, combination supplements like pic related are a scam and have doses too low of most of the stuff in there for them to be any decent

what was your reasoning for dropping l-tyrosine?

Go to sleep sober with no pills.
Most people who buy into nootropics aren't getting good sleep.

I'm so sorry anon. Those aren't nootropics. They actively cause brain damage.

^Its a collection of studies and research conducted on nearly every nootropic substance you may encounter.

Asking people a question like that will result in annecdotal reports like "I tried substance X and it works great annon". Look through the research, dont be stupid, and before you try anything, ALWAYS research "substance X side effects" or "substance X bad" to see the downsides.

Personally, I have found nootropics to be quite beneficial. Adrafinil, noopept and L-theanine is my grind. Magnesium L Threonate for the memory and Brocoli sprouts for the health.

Yes annon, broccoli sprouts. Thats probably your best bet to stop feeling shit.

Watch this nice 45-minute long video which summarizes dozens of studies on it and analyzes the various benefits.

exercise, good sleep and diet will do 10x more than any nootropic, if you've already get that sorted phenylpiracetam is pretty good
