How to Build a Nootropic Stack

Building a nootropic stack is very easy however there are some steps to follow. It is important to use nootropics that work synergistically in the stack and to start slowly. Read this article to follow the steps in making a successful brain supplement combination.


  1. 1
    Start with noopept. Start out with a cholinergic nootropic like piracetam or noopept. Both piracetam and noopept are very popular nootropics to use as a base of your stack.
  2. 2
    Add in a choline source. In terms of nootropics, choline generally refers to any nootropic that enhances the production of the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. Alpha GPC and citicoline are the best options to stack because they have other brain boosting functions other than just boosting choline levels
  3. 3
    Add in supporting nootropics. Once you find the right dosages and levels of your base nootropic and acetylcholine supplement, you can start adding in other nootropics. Aniracetam and oxiracetam are popular supporting racetams. You can also go ahead and add in other supplements like, sulbutiamine, centrophenoxine and pyritinol.
  4. 4
    Add in an ampakine. Ampakines work on glutamate receptors rather than acetylcholine. You may decide to add in a powerful amapkine like sunifiram and unifiram to further increase the power of your stack.
  5. 5
    Cycle if necessary. You may decide to cycle certain nootropics in or out of your stack. Even though nootropics are considered to be non-addictive and non-psychoactive, does not mean that they cannot cause tolerance over time. For this reason, you may decide to cycle supplement in or out of the stack.
  6. 6
    Add in brain nutrients. A true nootropic stack should have a variety of brain nutrient and vitamins to support its health and growth. These may include brain protectants and antioxidants. Many nootropics like noopept may help facilitate Nerve Growth Factors but there are other natural supplements like Lion`s Mane Mushroom which also may help reduce brain aging and free radical damage to brain cells. The ultimate long term goal of a brain stack is to preserve brain health and memory in the long run.
  7. 7
    Tweak the stack. Nootropics users create a long term supplement regimen that works for them. Not everyone is the same and not all stacks will work identically for every person. Since each brain is different, you may need to tweak the stack to work for you. You will know when you have the perfect stack.
