Dear brain-conscious friend,

My friend Jenny was always losing her keys.

Coming out of the mall, she could never remember where she parked her car.

AndJenny uses vinpocetine whenever Jenny went to a party, she’d meet someone new. Then minutes later couldn’t recall their name.

This embarrassing, nagging, ongoing memory problem had Jenny worried sick.

Until I told her about Vinpocetine.

First isolated from the lesser periwinkle plant in 1975 by Hungarian chemist Csaba Szántay. Vinpocetine boosts blood flow in the brain.

And has now helped countless people around the world improve alertness, cognition, concentration, memory and mood.

Jenny has been using Vinpocetine every day since I mentioned it to her. And she loves it.

Jenny no longer loses her keys. She can go to the mall and come out later knowing exactly where she parked her car. She can even recall the name of the last person she met.

So imagine Jenny’s shock when her local vitamin store told her the news. The FDA filed notice in the Federal Register in September 2016. Saying they were considering banning Vinpocetine from being sold as a dietary supplement.[i]

So what did Jenny do?

I’m sharing Jenny’s story with you – not because it’s unique.

In fact, her story is very common. Too common. That’s because …

… Jenny didn’t know that if her beloved Vinpocetine got banned by the FDA…

… that Jenny could simply choose another supplement to support her memory.

And all the gains she got from using Vinpocetine every day were not lost.

Turn back the clock.
40-year-old memory
like you were 18 again …

It seems to be a major kink in our human operating system ..

… we are resistant to change …

… if we find a potential solution to a health problem like failing memory, or depression …

… we stick with what works until someone takes it away from us …

… not realizing another solution could be around the corner. And even better than the last.

That’s when Jenny discovered she had other ways to boost the blood flow in her brain.

All it took was one panic-stricken phone call. And Jenny learned about Picamilon and Pine Bark Extract.

Both nootropic supplements help increase blood flow in the brain. Pine Bark Extract does it by increasing nitric oxide which helps dilate blood vessels. It even helps repair and maintain blood vessel lining health.

Then there’s Picamilon. Developed in Russia in 1969, Picamilon is a combination of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA with Vitamin B3 (niacin).

Studies show Picamilon is better at increasing brain blood flow than Vinpocetine.[ii]

Jenny couldn’t get Picamilon at her local vitamin shop. But she had several options for Pine Bark Extract.

Problem solved …

… now Jenny knows she has options for boosting brain health …

… and her memory continues to get better every day.

The supplement paradox: You need
nootropic supplements for optimizing
brain health but …

… how do you choose the best one?

My friend Jenny is not alone in knowing she has a problem with her brain. Then jumping at the first option that crossed her radar.

It could be an ad on TV. An email from a friend. A share on Facebook. An article in a magazine.

Hope for a solution to boost memory or motivation. A proven way to tame anxiety or relieve depression.

It’s only natural to want a better quality of life …  

My name is David Tomen. And I’m author of I faced the same dilemma as Jenny several years ago. Problems with my brain. And desperate for a solution.

David Tomen - author of Nootropics Expert
David Tomen Author – Nootropics Expert

About 10 years ago I was diagnosed Adult ADD. Up to then I had no idea why I had problems with focus all my adult life.

I bought and read dozens of self-help books on how to focus. I was depressed. Lost promotions because yearly management reviews said I wasn’t “focused”.

Then I ended up in the ER. What my wife feared was a heart attack turned out to be hypothyroidism. A non-functioning thyroid came with chronic fatigue syndrome, severe brain fog, memory loss, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and adrenal fatigue.

We endured endless visits to specialists and hospitals including the Cleveland Clinic. This during episodes of forgetting dates and appointments, a failing business, a crumbling marriage, doctors, endocrinologists, neuroscience specialists and therapists.

Two different neurologists tested me for dementia, and early-onset Alzheimer’s.

Test results gave no indication of either Alzheimer’s or dementia. But clearly my brain was not working like it should.

The medical bills kept stacking up, and the doctors had all but given up. There was nothing wrong with me according to mainstream medicine!

But my life was falling apart and I had to make a decision.

Either figure this thing out. Or give up and die.

I decided there must be a better way.

Out of sheer desperation I searched the medical databases, blogs, websites, stacks of books and combed the forums. For years I dug and I searched. Experimented with every kind of so-called “alternative” remedy I could find.

And gradually, I got my life back.

My memory came back online. Depression and anxiety faded away. Happiness peaked out from behind the dark clouds of despair.

Now I have a thriving business. The relationship with the love of my life is better than the day we married.

I bounce out of bed at 5 a.m. to meditate for an hour. Take my nootropic supplements. And look forward to another productive day.

Nootropic Supplements Saved My Life

Now to be honest, it took more than a stack of supplements to turn things around. It took a lifestyle change with better food, some exercise and an attitude change.

But nootropic supplements were at the heart of this miraculous turn-around.

I figured out what my body and brain needed to repair and then maintain what felt like a younger version of me.

And I continue to tweak and refine every area of my brain and cognition.

Natural Alternatives to Adderall, Ritalin and Vyvanse

I’ve often wondered how my life would have been different if I’d been diagnosed ADD early in life.

What would it have been like had I not struggled with lack of focus and muddled thinking for most of my career. Maybe my intelligence and built-in work ethic would have put me in the executive offices as CEO of a major corporation.

But I’ll never know. Because I was undiagnosed ADD.

What about your child? Naturally, you want your kid to have every advantage in life. The ability to reach heights you never did.

Nature’s Valium

In 2002, the American Psychologic Association published a study called, “Antidepressants: A Triumph of Marketing Over Science?”.[iii]

The study was a meta-analysis of the FDA database of controlled trials used in the initial approval of the most popular antidepressants.

The authors of the study concluded after looking at all these clinical trials that, “Apparently antidepressants work, but just barely better than inert placebos.”

But it gets worse …

The side effects of the majority of the SSRI’s, MAOI’s, and benzodiazepines are not only bad. They are often absolutely horrific.

And after seeing the evidence time and again on the side effects produced by these drugs. I don’t want to use them. And I certainly don’t want anyone in my family or friends using them.

The Racetam-family of Nootropic Supplements

We can thank Dr. Corneliu Giurgea for coining the word we now associate with cognitive enhancement. The word nootropic was derived from the Greek words for “mind” (noos) and “towards” (tropein).[v]

Dr. Giurgea first synthesized Piracetam back in 1964 while working at the Belgian-based pharmaceutical company UCB Pharma. Piracetam was created to help treat motion sickness.

Surprisingly, Piracetam proved very successful in enhancing overall mental performance, memory and cognition. A first for a lab-created synthetic compound.

At least 19 racetams have been developed in the last 50 years. Each racetam shares a 2-Pyrrolidone base structure. But each are unique in their mechanism of action in your brain.
