Talk to anyone in Silicon Valley that is involved in coding and chances are you will discover that they take nootropics. It use to be a hidden secret, much more like a ‘dirty little secret’ but as time goes on we are learning that the average person can also partake in brain optimization, much like we indulge ourselves in the habit of keeping our physical body healthy.
Below we will discus Why you should take nootropics and naturally leave you with a few options as to what to start with.
1. Improve Focus
The supplement we recommend for this is lumonol, you can read more about the details of it here: https://trackmystack.com/supplements-lumonol – It contains many naturopathic compounds and noopept to help you focus on the task at hand, unlike caffeine which gives you raw energy. Focus is really the key, you don’t want to have ADHD type symptoms and be taking caffeine as you will be all over the place.
2. Relieve Stress
Supplements such as Ashwagandha or even Fish Oil are known to relieve stress. Fish Oil or even Krill Oil work by providing the brain with Omega 3 fatty acids which your brain uses as fuel, and when you are low on said fuel, you start acting up. There is a lot of Clinical evidence to support this as well.
Ashwagandha comes from the Indian Medical system known as Ayurveda which people have followed for thousands of years. Ashwagandha is considered a nootropic in that it is a ‘full-body’ optimization herb, but is primarily consumed to relieve stress.

3. It’s Cheap & Safe
Generally the cost of these supplements is not too high and remains at about $20-40 a bottle that will last you a month, which comes to about $1 a day for good health. You will no longer by surviving but living your life. Additionally, Supplements such as Phenylpiracetam although may not have the research of Piracetam are stronger and thus you would ‘feel it’ a lot more.
The point we are trying to make is, start with Piracetam the milder one for safety, increase the dose, and if no effects are felt, attempt to go for a ‘harder and more potent’ version. It could also be that you may be buying a cheaper version of the supplement that does not either have the ingredient or not bio-available enough or just doesn’t have enough of the supplement. It could also be that you are not dosing it correctly, e.g. is it fat soluble or water soluble and are you taking the recommended dose or the right dose.
