  • Neurotrophic Supplements

    Just curious if anyone has used any OTC neurotrophic supps?
    Good, bad, indifferent?
    Focus or mood altered?

    I don't know much about them, or know if the OTC supps are just snake oil.

    I have other questions, but I'll wait to see if anyone has experience.

    Thanks!

    I took Tyrosine and DMAE by TwinLab. Didn't really feel much of a difference, but to be fair I do not think I was taking the amount needed. Even if I took higher amounts, I don't think it would have made THAT much of a difference. But the Twinlab products are cheap so you can buy a bunch and experiment without breaking the bank.

      I didn't even think twinlab was still around.

          As a 6th year graduate student in physics, I've tried them all. The only OTC one I've found that has an effect is Noopept: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noopept

          Does it work? Yeah, but not as much as, say, amphetamine (Adderall). But it's available OTC (in the US, anyway).

              Thx Sammich. I'll look into it. I saw a product by HPN, "Mental Jewels." I didn't know of any of the ingredients it listed though.

                  I can't post the link yet because I haven't posted enough, however, Brain Candy by BioTest on T-Nation used to get a lot of positive feedback from where I read my info. Was always too expensive for me to try though :/

                    Jen,

                    You might find some interest in valerian root extract (pure extract).

                    I've used it for years for my anxiety and as long as I don't take it for too long a period of time it has a good suppressive effect. Calms my mind down before sleep as well. Another good one is ashwagandha extract.

                    As far as a mental focus OTC supplement, Procera XTF wasn't too bad but it doesn't have many fancy ingredients.

                    Acetyl L-Carnitine
                    Vinpocetine
                    Huperzine A
                    Rhodolfo rosea
                    Green tea extract
                    Green coffee extract
                    Guarana seed

                    I have ADD and have been prescribed adderal since I was very young. Got me through college and I would have gladly taken this stuff over the adderal. For me it was a relatively similar effect. Knowing what I know now about adderal, I wish I would have never taken it.

                      As I was ordering 20lbs of protein (cafe mocha flavor is back in stock finally!) from TN, I came across this product https://truenutrition.com/p-7426-tru...capsules.aspx?

                      Decided to give it a go for $20. I'll try and give a review of what I think. It will be coming at a perfect time for me.
