Ultimate Nootropic? (Brain Booster)


#1

This is for the students here who will be returning to school this Fall. If this works as well as the literature describes, you might go back a whole lot sharper!

"CENTROPHENOXINE: THE ANTIOXIDANT NOOTROPIC
Imre Zs-Nagy, the leading centrophenoxine researcher, believes that centrophenoxine makes its greatest contribution to brain health through its antioxidant effects. He notes that centrophenoxine is a more effective source for getting DMAE into the brain, than DMAE itself. (2)

Once inside brain cells, DMAE is converted into phosphatidyl choline...

For those wishing to use centrophenoxine as a long-term anti-brain aging treatment, or for general cognition enhancement where no psychological/neurological disease exists, as little as 250 mg once or twice daily with breakfast/lunch is a generally safe and useful dose.

Centrophenoxine is a natural synergist with piracetam. Piracetam has shown synergistic learning/memory effects when combined with choline or lecithin in both animal and human studies Centrophenoxine is a â??better cholinergicâ?? than choline or lecithin, as previously discussed."

I did 3000 mg/day for almost a month.

And???

At first, it hurt my stomach so I reduced the dose, then decided to take it with more fluids and that helped alot.

I had alot more mental energy than normal, like I was very aware, more than usual.
I wasn't using it as an ACh precursor, although I'm sure that was unavoidable. I've read that it possibly breaks down lipofuscin build up, and I have quite the stack ahead of me(ani, oxi, vinpo, galantamine, ginkgo, l-tyrosine, bacopa, rhodiola, B5) so I figured it was time for an 'oil-change' for my brain, so to speak.

For the centro, I started at day one 500mg, day two 1g, day three 1.5g, day four 2g, until I reached 3000mg, then 3g hurt my stomach so I reduced my dose, then tried taking it with more fluids, and then all was well.

Yup, centro is generally regarded (in the Noop thread) as efficacious and helpful.

I may try it soon.
