DIY: This brain supplement cocktail is similar to the other aniracetam-base recipes, but adds an extra dimension of concentration and memory capability, as well as an improvement in efficiency of thoughts and memory retention.


Serves 1

  • 800 mg Aniracetam
  • 15 mg Vinpocetine
  • 500 mg Alpha GPC
  • 500 mg Centrophenoxine
  • 500mg Choline Bitartrate

Preparation #1

  • Combine ingredients with echinacea, orange juice or similar liquid to minimize the objective taste.

Preparation #2

  • Combine ingredients into size 0 or 00 capsules.

Side note: I have experienced a psychologically impairing affect (downward spiraling mood swings) from the consumption of vinpocetine – none of my prior research had indicated this to be a potential side affect, but it was, nonetheless, present in my experimentation, so I thought it was a relevant observation to add.

On the bright side, when combined with a higher dose of piracetam or aniracetam, the negative affects subsided or were eradicated completely. Also, if you take vinpocetine before going to sleep, you may experience some very vivid lucid dreams – I noticed this early in my vinp evaluation, and also observed a pattern in the cycle – the dreams would tend to match the mood I was in, and not just match the mood, but amplify the mood to its extreme. One night I went to bed feeling mildly gloomy about a particular social situation. That night my dreams were not simply bits and pieces of random subconscious elements, but a dramatically detailed nightmare that felt like unadulterated reality. Although I woke up thanking God for “actual” reality, I value the experience and consider it high on my list of memorable happenings.
