Using Nitrovit To Build A Nootropic Stack

Using nitrovit to build your nootropic stack

The question I get asked most is “What is your daily nootropic stack, Mark?”
So, I thought I’d answer that one today for you…

Here’s my typical day:
(Note: I take weekends off from all supplementation except protein shakes)

AM Stack (Breakfast)

2 cups of coffee
Nitrovit (usually fruit punch flavor)
2 Nitroamp capsules (if training/jogging)
3 Nitrodrive capsules
800mg of Piracetam
1 Blackmore’s Multivitamin + Minerals tablet
1000mg of Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR)

PM Stack (Lunch)

1 Nitroamp Capsule (If faced with a long afternoon of meetings)
1 ON Nutrition Chocolate protein shake (with water or pistachio/almond milk)
3 ON Nutrition ZMA caps

The reasoning behind my stack

AM stack – I am up around 8am, and start the day with 2 cups of coffee – one after the other.

I make my Nitrovit drink around 9am and then head off to the gym. My gym sessions last no more than 30 minutes, though it takes me approx. 40 minutes to jog/run there and back.

I don’t eat until breakfast until around 11am. I have 4 eggs – either scrambled or boiled – and have done so for the past 7 years.

Eggs are super rich in Choline, which aids acetylcholine production – the neurotransmitter responsible for many key cognitive functions such as learning, and memory formation and recall.

I know for a FACT that I am currently at my sharpest. My brain has never been quicker when it comes to verbal fluency and memory recall, and I credit eggs and Nitrovit for that.

I workout 4 days a week and I’ll take 2 Nitroamp capsules before I do so.

I usually only take Nitroamp 4 days a week max as I do all I can to avoid tolerance build-up. Resting 3 days a week helps with this.

(Note: If I have a meeting in the afternoon which I know could drag on, or is “information intensive” then I’ll take a Nitroamp then too).

I also take 800mg of Piracetam. Piracetam is a nootropic cousin of Noopept and similar in chemical structure. I’ll leave you to do your own research around it, but I personally find it kills anxiety within 15 minutes of taking and brings about great clarity and mood.

There are a lot of benefits to be had in terms of mental energy from taking 1.6g upwards, but Nitrovit is enough for me personally so I use Piracetam purely for its effects on mood and anxiety.

I always take a Blackmore’s “Multivitamin + Minerals” tablet daily. I like Blackmore’s as I find their ingredients to be of a high quality, with little to no side effects such as acid reflux.

With multivitamins – believe it or not – you really do get what you pay for so the $3 Target version doesn’t cut it for me.

I also take 1000mg of Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) – which I believe to be a great nootropic for weight management (fat loss), and for blasting away mental fatigue. (Do not confuse with L- Carnitine which only aids fat loss).

I alternate usually between Dymatize and Swanson’s brands.

I never take ALCAR after 11am as I find it can be a little overpowering when it comes to getting to sleep. It wards off fatigue, but stays in the body for a long time and so avoid taking it late in the day.

Not everyone is after weight management also, and while obviously ALCAR isn’t some wonder diet pill and does need to be paired with a fitness regime to extract the benefits, when I do train the ALCAR does a great job of boosting my metabolism.

This helps me avoid ‘cardboard’ diets and weight loss meals.

Lastly I take 2 Nitrodrive capsules after breakfast. I find great benefit in the boost the ingredients in Nitrodrive give me and would recommend you try it for 15 days if over the age of 30.

Whilst it does boost libido, it has ingredients in it known to help increase free-testosterone.

I have a lot more stamina than most people half my age, and the lagging libido issues I once suffered as an older man no longer plague me. Let’s just say the wife is very happy ha-ha!

At 8pm I will take a protein shake (I am currently using On Nutrition’s ‘Rich Chocolate’ product which tastes great). I take this in the evening to give my body something to feast on when I sleep (I rarely eat after 8pm anymore) as the protein wards off hunger until the morning.

Some disagree with me, saying it is better to carb load at 8pm so your body has carbohydrate fuel throughout the night, but I’m not out to pack on any real size and find protein to keep me slim and ‘light on my feet’.

If I really need a boost of pure focus, I will take 30mg of Noopept – though I discard the capsule.

Instead I take Noopept “sublingually” – which means I carefully pull the 2 capsule halves apart and pour the contains under my tongue – where I let it sit for 5 minutes.

It does taste disgusting, and you obviously can’t talk as you need to keep your mouth shut, but Noopept should really always be taken sublingually. This way it can enter the bloodstream much easier via the thin membrane under the tongue, as opposed to entering the digestive system with most being lost.

If you haven’t tried Noopept under the tongue I highly recommend it. It is really the closest thing to getting that ‘limitless feeling’ and can be quite a journey.

The effects usually last no more than an hour maximum with 30mgs, but again, it can be intense and so I only do this if trying to beat a deadline, or to get on top of my email inbox!

I will also add that if you eat a diet high in protein, or don’t consume enough water daily then I would add a quality fish oil supplement too to avoid constipation and bloating.

Protein can do that to you and there is no worse feeling. I eat a lot of fat and oily fish so rarely need a supplement, but if going abroad (somewhere hot) or if approaching a heatwave, I’ll add a fish or krill oil supplement to help flush the system out as it were. (By quality I mean high in EPA and DHA).

Again, I take weekends off from all supplements unless something specific is happening. It is always good to reset the system and cycling helps avoid tolerance build-up so you can continue benefitting from the results.

So, there you have it – my own daily routine.
Please note that this is really my own personal take on what a fundamental stack should look like when supplementing with NITROvit, and you should take this advice with discretion.

I feel fantastic and only wish I had felt this good when I was younger. My Doc is impressed too with my health.

Of course, there are a myriad of different nootropics that like “pizza toppings” can be added to Nitrovit’s “Pizza base” for those looking to enhance their experience and venture into the world of advanced nootropics.

The ‘Racetam’ family is a great place to start if you don’t mind synthetics, or you could go natural with some of the many nootropic mushrooms.

I highly recommend Cordyceps (BUT DO NOT TYPE ‘CORDYCEPS’ INTO GOOGLE IMAGES! – you’ve been warned).

Lion’s Mane and Reishi are also some great mushrooms that can help with mental clarity and mood, and will generally make you a ‘fungi’ to be around Ha-ha! (… sorry).

OK, still here after that appalling joke?! Well congrats on making through.
