My personal efficacy assessment of the nootropic / smart drug: Get Smart™.

This my two-week report regarding my original post

I'm editing this post down to the basics.  Just for the record, my cognative function is normal.  I''m taking it to test and see if there is any improvement.

Results after 2 weeks:

The product works as advertised.  Memory, concentration, focus is enhanced.  A marked increase in the ability to put ideas into words and pictures. Slight positive mood elevation. Quality of sleep is improved.  The product does not induce a jittery, hyperactive, or stimulated feeling. All results feel natural.

That Get Smart looks good, I may give it a try. Those ingredients have been around for quite awhile.

Back around 1990 there were 2 books I read, not sure of the names, something like "Brain Boosters and Smart Drugs" IIRC(if I recall correctly). One thing I remembered was that they need choline, the theory back then was that the improved metabolism used this up and would cannibalize brain cells to find it( I think , in particular, they were talking about piracetam and choline). I guess DMAE might be of some help, not sure, but just something to consider.

Thanks for that. Supposedly the centrophenoxine, an ester of DMAE, raises brain acetylcholine levels, so if that's true it might help balance that.

I am finding that my cancer medication, which is an estrogen blocker, is causing me extreme memory loss.  I am 47 years old and my short term memory is horrible now from the Aromosin.  I am not so sure my mother actually had Alzheimer Disease anymore.  I think it was the Tamoxifin.  Unless the Tamoxifin caused the Alzheimer Disease?  Either way I am surviving cancer but I can't remember anything anymore Ermm

Welcome to the Forums, Tina.

Many women experience the same challenge before and during menopause.  It has not been established that a drop in estrogen can cause Alzheimer's disease but it certainly can cause or increase cognitive dysfunction.  Women's complaints in this area had been ignored until recently.  Oddly enough, female hormone replacement therapy was linked with an increased risk of dementia in a major study, however, the women were using synthetic hormones http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15213206  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15694689

Dr Braverman has some interesting information at http://www.pathmed.com/faq/?p=874  This book http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/Item33488/Female-and-Forgetful.html may also be of interest.

Additionally, see http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21694454

I and many of my friends have found that taking 'Product B' has improved our mental clarity and cognitive abaility. It is a supplement containing 30 different plant extracts, some of which have proven to be Telomerase Activators in vitro.

Watch  and see what Dr Ronald DePinho of the Harvard Medical Schoolhas to say regarding ‘Tissues have a Point of Return’ by clickingon        http://tiny.cc/PointOfReturn

Tosee just a few of the amazing changes being reported by people consuming Product B click on the followinglinks :  

Norman, an Alzheimers sufferer, click :  http://tiny.cc/Alzhiemers

           Dr. John, a Doctor,and others click :  http://tiny.cc/DrJohnandOthers

As Dr DePinho predicted, it  seems that certain degenerated tissues in humans, including neurones, also have the ability to regenerate once the Telomeres are lengthened.

. Satyanarayanan asks about brain repair
after being on long-term anti-psychotics .
. these medications work by inhibiting dopamine function,
and atrophying the brain cells that make dopamine .
. the key is to find dopamine enhancers,
and anything that "(exacerbates schizophrenia)
and then anything that promotes neurite growth .
. I'm combining mct, blueberry extract,
and LE fishoil with DMAE for neurite growth .
. yohimbine extract promotes dopamine use,
and L-dopa (Mucuna Pruriens extract)
promotes dopamine production .
. you may have a lot of research ahead of you:
beware high blood pressure, etc .
. if I think of anything else for attention deficit,
I'll be putting them on my performance enhancers list.

Hi Spectator just read your info above regarding brain Cognitive Damage from Anti psychotics. My brother was taking 100-800mg of Seroquel for 4 years and now has Parkisonia paralysis he has the gait aka shuffling walk, facial expressions gone, torso up high and shoulders forward his posture is stiff. Also severe cognitive issues can't learn new things, flat, has major short term memory loss but can remember everything since we were kids. He's off the Seroquel facial expression coming back but cognitive that same. He's only 45 and is bipolar always bounced back quickly after an episode using 1200 lithium and an antipsychotic but would and could drop the antipsychotic within 3 months. He'd also drop the lithium with no side effects after being on it for a year or two.. Yes he was manic but was very successful. His last episode he hasn't bounced back I believe it's due to not being monitored on the Seroquel, he had agathesia and was walking miles upon miles his Doc kept upping his Seroquel!?!? Thinking he was manic??? I wish his mania would come back!!! Your post gave me hope and makes sense. Can you give me milligrams of what to take? Also was thinking of putting him on Truehope EMPower+ does anybody have experience with these micronutrients?? My brother is on 1200 lithium and 10 olazipine (yes I know Olazipine is being dropped) but he gets paranoid without it and non compliant ( any suggestions would be greatly appreciated) thank you
