L-Tyrosine by Intellimeds
This amino acid is a harbinger of two of the most important neurotransmitters, dopamine and norepinephrine.
It enhances working memory and executive function through chemical signalers in the prefrontal cortex. A quintessential Limitless nootropic, it increases focus abilities and internalized motivation, many report a ‘wired’ feeling from it.
Editor's Biohacker Review: Aminos in the morning!
The last few days I've been taking L-Tyrosine (900 milligrams) with ALCAR in the mornings. So far I've noticed a little of an energizing effect but it doesn't really compare to Racetams.
I decided to take break from coffee, which I've attempted a couple of time before, it's usually rough. I started taking Tyrosine first thing in the mornings and afternoons. I upped the dosage to 2700 which produces an alert and wakeful mindset after about 30 minutes.
It has the consistency of flour. It's one of the most boring tasting Nootropics I've tried, it has almost no flavor at all.
It's pretty good for sleep deprivation, in dosages of 2700 - 3600 milligrams. I've taken it a couple of nights recently where I had gotten less than 4 hours of sleep, it has restored my alertness, creativity and focus for 4-6 hours. I returned to the baseline of my productivity (which is quiet productive). Then I would go off a cognitive cliff, finding myself aimlessly browsing or watching Youtube videos. Especially combined with Caballo or other Racetams, I was quiet impressed my creative powers in a sleep deprived state. Sleep deprivation is probably not a good policy but I do like to party and Tyrosine enables my sometimes Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde lifestyle, of late night hedonism and mornings spent like a disciplined entrepreneur. Although, it's not exactly a perfect solution for sleep deprivation, as it does take about 30 minutes to kick in, during which I feel like a real zombie!
