Hey

I am already using Synapsyl, and another thing called Mastermind by Revive Active. I've been using Mastermind for about 20 days now, and Synapsyl for about 12 days. I genuinely do feel a fair bit smarter, but that is not just the supplements themselves, because I am also after starting to sort out a bad life situation I was in (so it's hard to see exactly how good they've been, or which one is doing most of the work).  Nonetheless I am confident that they are good.  What I'm looking for is another boost, to make me better in conversations, listening to people, wanting to engage more, and stop being so stuck in my own head. For one of the supplements, "Aniracetam", there's a review saying "This one is particularly well-suited for producing natural, confident, witty and fun social interaction." That pretty much says what I'm looking for.

One issue I have is, if there's a problem I'm dealing with, or something I'm trying to figure out, I tend to think about it constantly, to the point where I don't want to be present and interact or listen to people, but I know it's pointless to have this attitude because I'm mostly just going around in circles. I am fixing this myself, but am looking for something to help me know when enough is enough and that I've worked out what I can for now, and it's time to enjoy the moment. So, anything that can help with that would be great. I am sure the two mentioned above are good for that, and the effect of them is not supposed to kick in until a couple of weeks of use, so there's still more to come I'd say, but those supplements are mainly for intelligence.

Would Aniracetam be a good addition to these? and if so, is that all I will have to take? From reading I think I may have to take Choline (there is a bit of that in Mastermind), or is what I'm already taking enough to stack with Anicaratem?

Unless fear/anxiety is causing you physical symptoms which are ''harming'' your day to day activities i doubt any nootropic will help you. I'm sorry, i know that is not what you want to hear, but perhaps meditation might be more effective.

Apart from that, i wonder how much caffeine do you consume? Perhaps a strong energy drink (like USN spike) or a caffeine shot would make things better temporarily (mind the crash though). These things helped me a lot.
Or maybe NALT if your dopamine level is low - i hear it helps some people.


p.s.: you listed soya in revive ingredients - avoid everything with soya as most people can't digest it properly. Thus it generates estrogenic substances which mess with your hormone levels. It can affect your mind as it conflicts with testosterone levels.

Another option to consider is oxiracetam, which is used by many students to assist with studying. 

To be honest, I am having some difficulty with the ingredients list for Synapsyl, unless it contains a significant amount of bacopin and phosphatidylserine.  The last time we saw one of their labels everything was lumped together as proprietary formula; if they don't tell you the amount of each active ingredient, it is usually a safe assumption that the cheapest and least effective one listed makes up the majority.

With regard to any of the proprietary mixtures available out there, always look for a detailed listing of ingredients by amount - I know the makers want to protect their formula, but no ingredient can be effective without at least a therapeutic dosage.  Otherwise it is just there for show.
