nootropics weve testedNootropic supplements have definitely been heavy on my radar for the last year or so. They also happen to be one of the fastest growing niches in the supplement market, with new ones coming out practically every day.

Some of these worked quite well, and others, not so much…

Many of them have claimed to be essentially legal otc adderall, which if true would be a real game changer.

Below is a list of the products that I have had a chance to test out.

Some of them I used for just a few days, some for weeks, and some for months.

Some of them I actually still use on a daily basis.

If you don’t see the one you’re looking for listed here, there’s a good chance I’ve written about it.

If you have a specific product you’d like me to test out, you can contact me and I’ll try to get around to it as soon as possible.

It’s nearly impossible for me to try ALL of them, but if it looks interesting enough, I’ll try it. (*Top Recommended Products Are Bolded)

Hi, Any commentary on Provasil? -Rick

I had done a review, but it wasn't particularly favorable. They asked me to take it down. I didn't have to, but I didn't think it was worth the hassle.- Rob

  1. Hi Rob
    I liked your work, you always tell the truth about nootropic drugs. Do I have any questions?

    Is it possible to combine nootropic preparations with each other for example, these tablets (ADD Tabz, Brain Alert, Cerebral Success Smart X, Optimind, Addie UP, Mind Lab PRO, Phenibut XT, Nootrobrain, Noocube, Focus Formula, Focus Factor)? I think there will be more effective results.

    By the way, can I take it for pregnant women and for children too?
    Thank you in advance.

    1. Hey Kalen,
      It really depends on what your goals are. Are you looking for something to help with focus and concentration?

      Something for short and / or long term memory? Or maybe an uptick in motivation?

      Let me know what your ultimate goals are and I’ll recommend the best possible stack for you.
      1. Hi Rob
        For example, as the film “Area of ​​Darkness”, where the main role is played by Bradley Cooper. I hope you got what I meant?
        And another question; Can I take it for pregnant women and for children too?

        Thank you in advance.
  2. I’m liking what I’m seeing about Optimind With Phenibut. My question is this, r there any OTC products that help with increasing motivation.

    I’m already on Adderrall 30mg 2xday. I have the energy I guess but feel like I’m lacking motivation to get things done.

    Also could be that I’ve been on Adderrall so long I’ve built up a tolerance. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hey Christina,
      The Optimind ( should help with motivation, but if you want to up-the-ante I would suggest picking up the Nootropics all star pack from It contains 4 powerful supplements, including Noopept and Adrafinil, which should help dramatically with increasing motivation.

      Check out my review here:

      Hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions!
  3. Between the options and boots pack which do you feel gives the best results. I’m a healthy 41 male.

    High Stressed job. Business world.

    I’m impressed by your top two, but which is better and why? Thank you in advance

  4. Good day sir,

    I’ve enjoyed reading over your critiques and suggestions. I was looking around other websites and I came across this selection of nootropics list:

    I was curious to see if you had the time to take a gander at its number 1, Provasil. Given your rating system and break down I am curious to know if this will pale in comparison or even make a notable budge on your list. Lumonol was the only one that’s on your list to make there’s and I am curious as to why.

    I hope you have a wonderful day. Look forward to hearing from you,

    Derek Norman
    1. Hey Derek,

      I haven’t tried Provasil personally but I did have a review up on the website until Provasil asked me to take it down. I thought it looked pretty good, but I guess they like to be in control of their reputation.

      About the top choices list, I do research on a lot of supplements that I don’t get around to trying, but I’ll only put the ones I’ve actually used to great success on my tops list. Also, I’ve found that nootropics, more than any other category of supplements, are very different in how they affect different people.

      What works really well for some may not work at all for others. That’s why finding the right one can be very much a trial and error process.
