Cognitive Enhancement regimens or Nootropic stacks help improve many aspects of mental function, such as: working memory, motivation, attention control, episodic memory, and could potentially help prevent and alleviate age-related cognitive problems and disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and ADD/ADHD. When nootropic supplements are combined together they are referred to as `Nootropic Stacks`, this is done to maximize effectiveness and minimize side effects if any. Most pre-blended branded nootropic supplements are infact `stacks` with proprietary blends which for the most part means the most expensive ingredient is under-dosed.
When checking out nootropic stacks made by other users, you can see what may or may not be working for them and what their dosage is like. The reason for sharing stacks openly is to get feedback, to be held accountable and to provide data to other's who may be on the same path as you, plus it can be fun. The most popular nootropic stacks include the CILTEP stack, Caffeine + L-theanine stack and the Piracetam + Choline stack, and these can be considered stacks for beginners that many claim work well.
Many patients with ADHD dislike the side effects of amphetamines such as Adderall,
Methylphenidate, Eugeroics or wakefulness-promoting agents (such as: Modafinil or Armodafinil) and thus choose to try Nutraceutical stacks or Racetams to combat their conditions. Many times the best nootropic stack may just involve getting your diet/nutrition right, e.g. getting the right amount of omega-3 fatty acids (DHA & EPA), getting enough sleep and a natural supplement like Bacopa Monnieri -- An ayurvedic herb that has been used for thousands of years.
There are also some that cycle their stacks as their tolerance may build up for certain drugs or stimulants, such as: Sulbutiamine. It should be noted that when building or choosing a stack, little can sometimes do more and that each herb or ingredient should be added one at a time so you can determine if the effects are desirable. It is absolutely vital to learn about each supplement you add to your cognitive stack to see if it's right for you, you can learn about all supplements relating to cognition in the brain supplements section.
