Pramiracetam & Alpha GPC
Pramiracetam & Alpha GPC is a very popular stack in 2013. Pramiracetam by itself is very strong and one of the strongest racetams that is very popular in times of study and heavy workloads. One issue many people find is the cost, however many “starving students” still find it in their budgets to afford this powerful stack. The pramiracetam/alpha GPC combination is known as a solid “study stack” and is often “cycled” at certain stages.
A pramiracetam/alpha GPC stack has its own unique set of nootropic benefits not seen in Piracetam and some of the other racetams. Most people find pramiracetam to be very effective and adding alpha GPC to the mix may improve the effects. This is because Alpha GPC is a very effective acetylcholine booster that can efficiently improve available acetylcholine. Pramiracetam creates a much higher demand of acetylcholine and alpha GPC meets these demands and more. That is why this stack in one of the top stacks in 2013.
Noopept & Alpha GPC
Noopept is another strong nootropic that works on the acetylcholine system. Noopept alone is one of Peak Nootropics best sellers and alpha GPC is commonly purchased alongside it. A Noopept/Alpha GPC stack has several advantages and pitfalls when compared to the pramiracetam/alpha GPC stack. Affordability is one benefit that can be observed because noopept is much more cost-effective than pramiracetam.
Both Noopept and Pramiracetam work with alpha GPC synergistically. People have their own individual opinions however pramiracetam is generally seen as the more potent of the two. Both noopept and pramiracetam do essentially the same thing, by working on producing higher reuptake at the Acetylcholine and NDMA and AMPA glutamate receptors.
Piracetam, Aniracetam, Oxiracetam & Citicoline
This is also a very popular stack. The PAO stack has many advantages over the aforementioned two. One huge advantage is the diversity you get. Piracetam mixed with the mood boosting qualities of aniracetam and the stimulating factors of oxiracetam create a very interesting nootropic combination. Each of the three racetams brings in their own unique set of qualities. The main benefit in this stack is the amount of flexibility and control you get.
One could easily swap out Citicoline for Alpha GPC in this stack however neither is better than the other. Citicoline is slightly more affordable and can be considered just as effective as alpha GPC in this case. This of course, will come down to personal preferences and will require some playing around or “tweaking” to get it right for you. All in all, the PAO + choline stack is very powerful and a popular alternative in 2013.
ALCAR & Choline Bitartrate
The ALCAR + Choline Bitartrate stack is a pure choline stack that is very popular in 2013. This stack is hardly every used by itself and is usually stacked with a racetam(s). This stack has a great advantage in cost over the stronger acetlycholine supplements and some people claim it is even more effective. These statements need some medical evidence to back it up but scientifically, an ALCAR/CB stack should be very effective. The Choline Bitartrate works to increase choline levels, while the ALCAR helps in the synthesis into acetylcholine. This creates a very powerful and efficient effect that some say is the ultimate “choline stack”.
Needless to say, this stack should always be combined with a racetam to increase efficiency. One could probably use this stack alone and see a minor cognitive however the effects will likely be extremely subtle. Also, the benefits of ALCAR will bring the powerful effects of l-carnitine to the table because it breaks own in vitro. The ALCAR + CB stack is one of the top choline stacks in 2013.
