Does your brain work as well as you'd like it to? How's your memory, ability to focus, and access to creative thought? If you could take supplements and herbs to upgrade your mental performance, and elevate your mood would you? If so, how would you know what to consume, how much of it, and what's safe vs. risky? 

In this episode, I sit for a chat with Abelard Lindsey, one of the living legends in the nootropic and smart drug scene. He was one of the industry forerunners and is widely regarded as a master formulator of nootropic 'stacks' (recipes). His crown jewel stack, Ciltep is one of the most popular brain supplements in the world, and one that I've regularly used personally for the past three years. Along with Ciltep, Abelard has also created some other powerful formulations under the Natural Stacks product line umbrella. 

After listening to this show, you'll not only learn how Abelard came up with his now famous Ciltep formula, but you'll also get to the root of the science behind the multitudes of ingredients commonly used in nootropic stacks, and some of the most common side-effects and benefits. 

Whether you're a veteran of brain upgrade experimentation, or someone brand-new to the practice of mental performance manipulation, this episode will fast-track your strategy and help you to avoid wasting time and money on products that don't work. 

Do some mental exercise right now, by thinking of one person who could use some brain enhancement and share this compelling episode with them.
