Anyone use this for it's nootropic effects? Would anaracitam, vino, and rhodiola rosea be good to stack with this?

Thanks!

Haven't used it myself (come on Biotest, send me a freebie. You know you want to) , but it should be great for boosting ACh andtherefore is a nootropic.

The stack you mention (minus the RR) is what I use myself.

However, I use vinpo as vino tends to give me a hangover ;)

Pumped? Are you sure it was the Alpha-GPC?

Well, I guess pumped was the wrong word. I felt really focused and energetic. I took it 75 minutes prior to my exam and I just felt like I could do anything.

I know this sounds random, but I took some about an hour before I left work the other day. On the train on the way home, somebody tried to pick a fight with me. Often times, I would get very "shaky" from the experience due to the stress of it (not that I'm scared of the person, just that the flight or fright hormones kick into gear, and my body gets so flooded that it gets a little "shaky feeling" although I would not visibly shake). Anyhow, I did not get that feeling whatsoever and I actually had a calm and clear headed feeling. Perhaps this would be a good supplement to take before a fight... MMA fight or some other match that is. You can't really time a street fight, but a planned fight, you can time fairly accurately.

Yeah, I get that shaky feeling too. Adrenaline withdrawal.

But I have to question whether you didn't get that feeling this time, because you got less adrenaline dump in the first place.

Don't get me wrong, I use steroids and they do a wonderful job of dulling the fight or flight reaction (which I prefer, since it lends you a useful air of calm, which is more useful to me than a shitload of adrenaline), but I can't see Alpha-GPC having that same result.

Your thoughts?

Yeah, does the same too me. Plus you have to carry all those bloody bottles and a corkscrew around with you.

Go with the Vinpo man!
