Best Nootropic Supplements

I have been having brain fog for a very long time now. I just really want sharp clear focus and mental clarity. I don't have a history of drug use besides weed I do occasionally. It's been a hell of a hassle and I feel like I'm getting retarded. I want to know what helps and what supplements or diets you guys recommend.

    Intermittent fasting is supposed to bring clarity, I’d research it. Cigarette highs make me feel enlightened

      This anon is right. IF and fasting overall is key for having no brain fog. On another note; creatine, vitamin d and green tea are your friends. You can also occasionally supplement with ashwaghanda, if you feel moody, though it will also relax your body.

    Don't waste your time with 'muh nootropic' lord now's I did. Nicotine is the goat for clarity and efficiency but the delivery systems all suck and dependence is real. Caffeine is OK but a mid more... chaotic. Plus its really easy to overdo it and miss the productivity window.
    How do feel about Adderall etc?

    Phenibut is good but tolerance builds up so fast its insufferable.
    My recent thing is garlic, I eat about a clove a day, no big deal but totally worth it. My gf hates the smell but how can I explain its for my brainfog.

    Brain fog, or a lack of mental clarity, can have many causes, including stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, and certain medical conditions.

    To improve your focus and mental clarity, I recommend the following:

    Get enough sleep: Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night, and try to maintain a consistent sleep schedule.
    Eat a healthy diet: Make sure you're getting enough vitamins and minerals by eating a variety of fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. Avoid processed foods, sugary drinks, and excessive caffeine.
    Manage stress: Find ways to manage stress, such as exercise, meditation, or therapy.
    Try some brain-training exercises: you can use apps or games that are designed to help improve focus and concentration.
    Avoid alcohol, tobacco and drugs like weed as they can worsen brain fog.

    Here are some supplements that might help:

    Omega-3 fatty acids, which can be found in fish oil supplements
    Ginkgo biloba
    Bacopa monnieri
    Phosphatidylserine

    It's important to keep in mind that these supplements are not proven to be effective for everyone and should be used with caution. It's always best to consult with a healthcare professional before taking any supplements.

    I've experimented with a bunch of nootropics and other things to boost mental clarity. I'm an engineering student and do freelance web development on the side as well as lifting, so I've had to optimize my brain as much as possible to efficiently do work. Here's what worked for me.

    Lifestyle:
    - sleep a minimum of 7 and ideally 8 hours per night. Wake up at roughly the same time every day (8am for me, but pick what works). If you don't get enough sleep one night, go to bed earlier the next day, don't sleep in.
    - Carb heavy meals leave me sluggish for an hour or two after. Fasting seems to give me energy and mental clarity, and eating fat/protein doesn't break this clarity like carbs do. I like carbs for fitness benefits, but try to eat them in the evening after I work.
    - avoid endless phone scrolling, vidya, masturbation or other "cheap dopamine" type activities.
    - Cold showers, sauna, high intensity cardio or any other activity that spikes adrenaline gives a natural high that feels about as strong as cocaine or adderall. You need to get an adrenaline rush though, so if you're not shocking your body there's no mental benefit.
    - Work out regularly for more energy, but don't overexert yourself to the point you're tired.

    supplements/drugs
    - caffeine is an obvious one, pairs well with theanine if it gives you anxiety.
    - weed and alcohol both give me brain fog not only during the high but for a few days after, if you use these regularly consider stopping.
    - modafinil is a nice drug for energy and focus. It's not as euphoric or addicitive as adderall, but it will let you feel wide awake and mentally clear for 8-10 hours.
    - adderall or other amphetamines work VERY well, but are incredibly addictive. I use this often, likely more than I should, but it is easily the most effective drug for mental performance. Ideally don't take it more than 2-3 days a week, and take the lowest dose that gives you benefits to avoid tolerance.

      - psychedelic microdoses also boost energy and lift brain fog, and will benefit your creatvity rather than the raw energy of stimulants. Psilocybin is better than LSD in my opinion, but the absolute best microdose nootropic is 2CB. If you can get this, 1-2mg will do great for productivity. It feels like a cross between adderall and psilocybin, with less tolerance or side effects than either.
      - If you're stuck in negative thought patterns or a bad routine, a strong psychedelic trip can help break you out of them. I find DMT the best for this purpose, but any trip will work.
      - Ketamine can reverse tolerance to many other drugs and help with addiction depression and anxiety. The trip itself is fun but ultimately useless, but the benefits come from the after effects. I am at my most productive for the 2 weeks following the use of ketamine.
      - kratom can be useful for productivity, specifically the white strains. It is very euphoric without being sedating, and can make any activity enjoyable. If you struggle to focus and often procrastinate, it's much easier to stay on task on kratom. Addictive, so keep it to low doses 2-3 days a week.
      - phenibut is similar to kratom, although more beeficial for social situations. Keep this to once per 7 days max. It's the most effective "autism cure" out there and can help a lot with confidence. Stacks very well with stimulants.
      - nicotine is a great focus enhancer, and with no tolerance is comparable to amphetamine in its effect. Tolerance builds incredibly fast and its the most addictive drug I've taken (I've done adderall, cocaine, xanax, PCP, molly and some other recreational stuff), so don't take this unless you have strong self-control. I've stopped using it since the downsides outweigh the benefits.

        Part 3

        beyond drugs and biohacking stuff, you also need to learn how to work. Focus and productivity is a skill, and like any skill it needs to be trained, and certain methods are better than others. I personally use a modified version of the pomodoro method, where I will set aside a 2 hour block to work, focus entirely on my task for 25 mins then take a 5 min break, usually stretching, light cardio or listening to music. All 4 sub-blocks in the 2 hour block should be the same task. When the 2 hours ends, take a longer break, 30-60 mins then start another block after this. The long break should be mentally relaxing, something like eating a meal, working out, socializing or even watching a show. Try to seperate the place you relax from the place you work. Have a plan before you start working, and clearly identify how you will start, what you will do and what is the goal. Breaking down your task like this makes procrastination less likely, and having defined end points where you know you'll be able to relax will make it easier to stay focussed for the needed time.
        These strategies work both sober and enhanced, although when using strong stimulants I will usually skip the 5 min breaks, instead doing a full 2 hour block of work. When using nootropics/study drugs, start working, then take the drug to optimize its effect. Most drugs take 20-30 mins to kick in, so by the time it activates you'll have already started working, and won't risk getting distracted and "wasting" the benefits.

        Hope some of this helps you and let me know if you've got any other questions.

          Incredibly based. I'm also an engineering student and follow the same strategies in terms of sleep, meals, and productivity as you.

          I haven't had experience with the drugs like you have, mostly just trying to utilize caffeine and tyrosine. During one exam period I used a nicotine vape and saw some focus benefits, but I think the negatives definitely outweigh the positives there.

          Do you listen to music while working? I get “bored” ish and have a hard time focusing on one thing if I don’t have anything in the background, even just instrumentals. I know it’s attention span-related since I do a lot of scroolling too.

            50/50 on music. I can't handle anything with lyrics since the words can end up interrupting my own thoughts, so it's mostly EDM while I work. I tend to like repetitive house and techno music that typically gets me hyped, but is easy to keep in the background. I go to a lot of raves as well, so have a strong positive association with this music, and it elevates my dopamine levels.

    All you really need is caffeine and l-theanine. Having a 'stack' or popping a ton of pills and powders isn't going to make you smarter, nor 'enhance' how well you learn. It's just an excuse to get high but not be associated with stoner culture.

    The only real nootropic is Adderall but it's pharmacology works to repair an inefficiency rather than 'enhance' how you think, it's not like the pills from Limitless.
