The fact is you can not be genius by taking those pills, but it helps the productivity, I guess! Genius is born nature not taking pills!

Just like a meat head would take anything to get bigger. If you are already smart why do you need to get smarter? This sounds like a placebo to me. I guess we have to wait and see the effect of this smart drugs.

you can never tell a Trump voter from a crowd of normal looking people. gotta be some amphetamine in there I am guessing. (one of the user in the video mentioned she was taking modanifil out of the skull container there, so there is your answer)

Why do people feel they need to take shortcuts? Just eat healthy, get your 8 hours, be physically active, and read/study hard every day. The only side effect you will need to worry about is that warm feeling u get when you accomplish your goals

So doctors claim nootropics isn't safe but yet the drugs they sell like crack causes death and harsh side effects.....But wait those drugs went through trials and testing and is found to be dangerous thus why there's a warning of side effects.. so what are we talking about as far as safety?

Oh I'm so glad that that says a lot right there doctors are concerned now that it's actually doing something the moment something out there starts to show that you can take it and actually improve yourself that's when doctors the FDA all of them start coming in on it oh we need to regulate this or we need to ban this they have no right to ban stuff if somebody wants to take it what I want to do with my body is none of their f****** business people need to wake up and and just say look you have no right to tell me that shut the f****** the moment that that people wake up and say I'm going to do what I want to do to a certain extent if you want to do something to your body that's your option that's what you want to do the FDA has no right to step in and say oh I'm going to take this away or I'm going to take this away and then feed you drugs that will stop your heart instant you take them 90% of everything they talked about ends in death every drug that they advertised on television can kill you
CrucifyRobinHood (3 months ago)
So, to summarize. In fact NOBODY is making wild claims, just reporting increased function. The business about no studies on long term effects only applies to SOME nootropics, OTC NSAIDS STILL kill more people annually than opiates and no one has died from nootropics at all. Any questions?

So random people look up stuff on the internet, then go start a company mixing a bunch of different psychoactive substances ordered from China, with no controlled trials or regulatory oversight and sell it to gullible idiots to make them feel smart, while bandwagoners tell skeptics to "go do your research" which is two google searches , five youtube videos and half an hour on some reddit? Sounds totally legit!

60 different types of nootropics a day, that cannot be healthy!. Especially when they're completely outside of FDA approval and long-term trials. You are essentially being the lab rat for this experiment.
Sledge (3 months ago)
The user Erin Finnegan runs an internet business which sells puppy oriented fashion wear, do you REALLY need to be the limitless guy in order to achieve that?. I bet she doesn't even do the tech side of it herself. Someone please replace her pills with tic-tacs so we can see just how valid these pills really are.
Sledge (3 months ago)
Sounds too good to be true, which is the hallmark of any fraudulent claim. Are the long-term effects known, does it even work as believed and will altering your brain chemistry is this way lead to other problems. It just shows how no matter how successful you are, we always desire more & is that a winning formula which can be sustained?.
Sledge (3 months ago)
I'd love to switch their nootropics with a sugar pill in order to see whether this is real, or simply a placebo effect. Expectation alone is often enough to achieve results.
Max Fmv (3 months ago)
There things that can help and improve brain activity. But I really doubt these people know what they are doing. One time antibiotics also were answer to all questions, nowadays we question overuse of antibiotics and new resistant bacteria they create. They will also happily sell you you pesticide chemicals to inhale and will call it e-cigarettes. So, be careful.

Why do these guys sound like douches and dictards? They don't sound any smarter than the average deluded Rhonda Byrnes " Secret - Law of Attraction" type-A greedster rebranded as Optimiser. Apparently pills don't make you a netter human, just a more hyped up version of the ( morally / ethically) flawed you.

People say "like" and "actually" quite a bit. Signs of a lack to intellect. Modafinil does work well however, has major side effects including irreversible rashes.

The pill alone can not and will not make you smart or smarter. It depends on the knowledge and information you expose your self to. The brain can only output the thing you input, expose your your mind to alot of knowledge and information so the brain can recall
Solar Aqier (4 months ago)
lol. why did you start taking nootropics: I wanted to become smarter. LOL. If you need drugs (on regular base) to be smart just stop. I do drugs every now n than, Lsd, and others. Nootropics are so fake. Tech industry microdoses lsd not nootropics.

Fernando Soares (4 months ago)
These supplements can help. I believe that because the chemistry in the brain of each individual is different ( i mean one can lack or have less or too much of one particular chemical in the brain), so is the effect of each one of these nootropics on one individual. That's why mixing all of this nootropics together can do more harm than good. I advise anyone to take the nootropic which the person needs most.👍

Why wouldn't these work? We take pills for everything else. Why is this so hard to believe. Look how bad the said marijuana was. All I'm saying is keep an open mind.
