The combination of substances that are in these pills are sufficient for increased mental focus and concentration although when combined with nootropics, which are naturally occurring cognitive stimulants, the effects are multiplied by at least 15 times. I’d recommend starting with piracetam, as this is a less potent no-tropic.
Neuro-Optimizer is nutrition for the brain, combining CDP Choline (cytidine 5-diphoscholine, also known as Citicoline), Phosphatidylserine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Acetyl L-Carnitine, L-Glutamine and Taurine to enhance brain metabolism and antioxidant protection. Citicoline (CDP-Choline) is a naturally occurring, water-soluble biological compound that is an essential intermediate for the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a major constituent of the gray matter of brain tissue (30%). Citicoline promotes brain metabolism by enhancing the synthesis of acetylcholine and restoring phospholipid content in the brain. PS (Phosphatidylserine) supports the brains physiological processing of stress and promotes neuronal communication by its effect on cell membrane fluidity. The antioxidants Acetyl L-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Taurine provide protection for the neuronsfrom damage caused by certain free radicals. Acetyl L-Carnitine,Alpha Lipoic Acid and L-Glutamine also support energy utilizationby their effects on fatty acid metabolism, oxidative decarboxylationand gluconeogenesis. Taurine also aids in osmoregulation (maintenance of proper concentrations of ions) inside the cell. Neuro-Optimizer is a safe, natural way to enhance brain metabolism and cognition without the use of stimulants.
