NOTE: Every single word on Nootropics Expert is written by me. It’s not an AI or a contract copywriter.

Hi David, I just got Performance Labs MCT OIL
Today, I have a few Questions.
1. after I open the Bottle do I need to Refrigerate the MCT oil and do you recommend it?
2. If I am using Noopept or a Racetam Should I take the oil first and wait a few minutes before taking a Racetam?
3. Should I take the MCT oil on an empty Stomach? I Look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for your time and Attention have a Good Weekend and hope the week ahead is Great.
What Nootropics can you recommend using with Brain Entrainment Programs that are using Bianaural Beats, Isochronic Tones or both?
Thank you for your time and Attention. I hope to hear from you soon. Take care.

    1. MCT Oil does not need to be refrigerated.
    2. I take them at the same time and it works for me.
    3. Take MCT Oil whenever you need it. Don’t wait for an empty stomach or a meal.

    I have been using Holosync for many years and the stack that I use helps with that. I think the important thing for this technology to work best is to have a healthy brain.

Can any supplements, or lifestyle, help with white matter hyperintensity?

David Goad
October 24, 2023

Good morning David, you mentioned not taking Methylene Blue while also taking CoQ10 – can you provide some additional context around that, please?

    David Tomen
    October 26, 2023

    David, because both are an electron donor. And if you over do it then it becomes a pro-oxidant rather than an antioxidant.

    October 14, 2023

    Thank you Nori, That was my goal in redesigning the site.

October 13, 2023

It’s a little inconvenient, I always read your articles from a smartphone, some hyperlinks/headings are now broken/missing, and the interface seems huge.

    David Tomen
    October 14, 2023

    Nori, noted. This is still an ongoing process to work any bugs out. Please be patient because this is a huge website with a ton of content that needs to be edited line by line and page by page.

      October 16, 2023

      Also, there used to be a section at the bottom with the latest comments and the latest articles, now they are gone, is there a replacement? How can I stay informed about new articles and updates?

        David Tomen
        October 18, 2023

        Nori, the update site is a work in progress. I’ll mention your comments to my developer and see if they can be added back because I think they are helpful as well. Thanks for your feedback!

October 12, 2023

David, I don’t see DHEA in your nootropics list drop down at the top. Are you still in the process of moving everything over?

    David Tomen
    October 12, 2023

    Matt, I just added DHEA and thanks. I have a list of articles and reviews not yet on the menu that need to be added. So stay tuned and thanks for your patience. It’s a huge job!
