Nootropics (/noʊ.əˈtrɒpɨks/ noh-ə-TROP-iks), also referred to as smart drugs, memory enhancers, neuro enhancers, cognitive enhancers, and intelligence enhancers, are drugs, supplements, nutraceuticals, and functional foods that purportedly improve mental functions such as cognition, memory, intelligence, motivation, attention, and concentration. The word nootropic was coined in 1972 by the Romanian Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea, derived from the Greek words νους nous, or "mind," and τρέπειν trepein meaning "to bend/turn". Nootropics are thought to work by altering the availability of the brain's supply of neurochemicals (neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones), by improving the brain's oxygen supply, or by stimulating nerve growth.
Experiences - Phenylethylamine Experiences Dear SWIYs, Today SWIM's much anticipated Phenylethylamine caps has arrived. And of course SWIM couldn't wait to experiment. SWIM picked up and ate a cream-cheese bagel on the way home from work.
Copy and past from my AL post:7pm-noticed vision seemed "clearer" 715pm-Decided WTF, another 1/8 of a tsp 800-driving to workout, started yawning, thought that was odd since I felt "up". Nothing near amphetamines, or even E/C, but a pleasant steady energy. Almost like you just woke up from some kick ass sleep and are super refreshed. 845-started to workout 945-wrapping up workout. Sort of looked back, and my intensity had not dropped off. Its not an in your face stimulation, but I felt I could go for another hour at least 12am-still very much awake 4am-struggling to sleep. I think Id be fine to take it around 3-4, even if I workout at 8pm.Noticed two odd things this morning. Sulbutiamine is coming - Anabolicminds.com - Page 5
