Using Precursors To Boost Cognitive Performance

Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that our nervous systems use to communicate within itself and with other parts of the body. Low levels of certain neurotransmitters have been linked to depression, anxiety, and a variety of other conditions.

using precursors to boost cognitive performancePrecursors are the building blocks necessary to create neurotransmitters. By consuming the right precursors, we can increase the level of specific neurotransmitters in the body and brain, resulting in improved mood, reduced anxiety, increased cognitive ability, and much more.

All of the precursors listed below are amino acids. Some of them are essential amino acids and others non-essential. By taking these amino acids, we can give our bodies the building blocks they need to create the neurotransmitters involved in cognitive performance.

When different people talk about the stacks that work best for them, there always seems to be one or two nootropics that are on everyone’s list. One of the nootropics that seem to be a part of everyone’s stack is alpha-GPC.

Sunifiram

Sunifiram

Sunifiram is a relatively new nootropic that has been getting some attention in the nootropics community over the past couple of years. Although there hasn’t been much research on it yet, preliminary studies are very promising. And users from around the world are reporting that sunifiram has a number of potent nootropic and mood-boosting properties.

Sunifiram is a synthetic derivative of piracetam, which is one of the oldest and best-studied nootropics. It is many, many times more potent than piracetam. Because of this, users are reporting amazing results with very small sunifiram dosages. While piracetam doses are measured in grams, sunifiram dosages are measured in single-digit milligrams. This means you have to take much less to experience nootropic effects.

Noopept and Choline

Noopept and Choline – A Winning Combination

Sometimes, things just go well together. This is certainly true of Noopept and choline.

A lot of people like to stack nootropics. A “stack” is when you take two or more nootropics together to get added benefits.

There are a few companies that make pre-stacked nootropics. Perhaps the best known of these is Alpha Brain. But these pre-made stacks often contain tons of different things in them. While Alpha Brain works great, with all those ingredients, you don’t really know what is working and what isn’t.

Peak Nootropics has come up with a two-in-one nootropic stack that I love. It has just two ingredients that have been shown to work great together: Noopept and choline. As far as I know, Peak Nootropics is the only company that is doing this right now.
