Safe and Legal Brain Hacking using Nootropic Stacks
Hacking into the full potential of the human mind can now be accomplished safely and legally with the use of nootropics. You may have also heard nootropics referred to as "smart drugs" (even in cases where they are completely naturally sourced from plants). These are substances, some synthetic some natural, that are designed to improve overall cognitive performance and memory in order to allow individuals to really outperform others. While some nootropics can be taken as standalone drugs, they do provide a variety of side effects. As such, the safest and most legal way of hacking into the full potential of the human brain is by stacking on natural, safe, and legal nootropics.
Nootropic stacking optimizes the benefits of individual nootropic substances by taking them together with other nootropics. While some would consider racetams as gold standard nootropics, they do carry with them potentially serious side effects. As such, when combining nootropics to form a stack, it is a lot better to combine naturally-occurring nootropics or cognitive enhancers that have been synthesized from natural extracts
Here are 5 basic nootropic stacks to get you started:
1Caffeine + L-theanine
One good nootropic stack to begin with is a combination of L-theanine and caffeine. The energy-boosting and focus-enhancing benefits of caffeine can be tamed by the soothing effects of L-theanine which is found in green tea. L-theanine effectively reduces the jittery effects of caffeine so individuals can feel a lot more focused, mentally alert, and full of energy without the dangers of heart palpitations and trembling often associated with caffeine.
2Alpha-GPC + Huperzine
Another nootropic stack you can try is Huperzine and Alpha-GPC. This combination is an excellent way to improve cognitive processes as well as memory because both nootropics act on the behavior or effectiveness of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Huperzine prevents the action of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase while Alpha-GPC increases the production and release of acetylcholine. This dual effect increases the levels of acetylcholine in the brain which, in turn, significantly improves overall cognitive functioning.
3Ginkgo Biloba + Vinpocetine
Combining Vinpocetine with Ginkgo biloba is another way to stack up with nootropics. Both of these natural nootropics function in improving the overall blood flow to the brain. Increasing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the different parts of the brain can help in improving cognitive function, alertness, learning, and memory. In some patients with dementia, this combination of vinpocetine and ginkgo biloba have been shown to improve cognitive deficits. Now imagine what this nootropic stack can do for a healthy individual.
4Bacopa Monnieri + Phosphatidylserine
Combining phosphatidylserine with Bacopa monnierri, Huperzine, and Citicoline can greatly improve cognitive performance. These natural nootropics work synergistically to provide remarkable improvements in memory, learning, attention, and other mental processes.
5Vinpocetine + Huperzine
Combining Huperzine with Vinpocetine right before a mentally-challenging situation can help individuals achieve greatly improved cognitive performance. Vinpocetine improves cerebral blood flow while Huperzine increases the availability of acetylcholine in the brain. These two processes provide for an excellent effect on cognitive performance.
There are other possible combinations of nootropics. The most important thing to understand is to research on the effects of the individual nootropics and choose ingredients that can work synergistically with others. This is the key to using nootropic stacks in hacking the brain’s full cognitive prowess, safely and legally.
