Ciltep Stack

By Expert Author: Sandee Kirkham

CILTEP stands for Chemically Induced Long Term Potentiation, and in a few words, it on the whole means taking a chemical substance that will help your mind store more in long term memory. Following me so far?

At this point, any further explanation delves deep into the realm of hard science, and for that I defer to Abelard Lindsay, the creator of the CILTEP stack. If you listen to this interview he did with SmartDrugSmarts, you'll learn all about the potent PDE4 inhibiting effects of Artichoke extract, and the cAMP increasing qualities of Forskolin - the two main components of the CILTEP stack. He'll explain why they work so well together, and what inspired him to combine them. It's interesting stuff, I promise!

But enough of that. I'm guessing what you really want to hear is: does CILTEP work? Does it significantly augment memory, recall, and motivation?

3 Days of CILTEP

Before I describe my encounters, I want to point out a few things up front. They may not make sense right away, but you'll understand by the time you finish reading this article.

I haven't had a cup of coffee in over a decade, and avoid caffeinated drinks.
I've tried just about every nootropic ingredient under the sun, including all the popular racetams such as Piracetam, Aniracetam, and Pramiracetam. However, I discontinued taking them over a month ago to give myself a clean slate for CILTEP.
This CILTEP and "Smart Caffeine" was supplied, free of charge, by Natural Stacks for me to experiment with. I asked them for it, not the other way around.

Now, with that out of the way, here is what happened the first day I had taken CILTEP without caffeine. You might notice I've talked about caffeine intake a few times, and the cause for that is about to become obvious.

Day #1

To begin things off, I took 3 x CILTEP capsules, and 0 x Smart Caffeine

Lack of brain prattle. The constant flow of voices in my skull were quieted.
I felt like I was living in a memory.
Intense calm and focus.
My face felt slightly warm, and I felt slightly off.

I definitely felt something that day, but I also felt a little strange almost spaced out. Sufficient to discourage me from trying it again, though? Not a chance.

Day #2

I took 2 x CILTEP capsules, and 1 x Smart Caffeine. Also worth talking about is that Smart Caffeine is Caffeine + L-Theanine, the substance found in Green Tea.

Profound yearning to learn. I actually spent hours training French, a language that I dislike, and usually devote only 20 minutes a day to learning, tops.
My mind felt like a sponge. I was easily able to memorize new vocabulary from French, as well as a broad variety of terms and scientific theories from the various Futurology articles I spend part of my day poring over.
I felt nicely balanced, and more happy than usual, without feeling agitated.
Doing tasks, even ones I had been staying away from, felt effortless. I had none of the bothersome "start up cost" I more often than not feel.

As you can see, day two went a lot better. I guess there are a few reasons for this. For one thing, I seem to be particularly susceptible to smart drugs. As an example, even half the usual dose of Noopept would be completely overpowering for me. When I decreased my dosage of CILTEP, my experience was substantially improved.

Finally, on my second day I had taken Smart Caffeine, and here is where I explain why I'm making such a big deal out of caffeine. As you may know, caffeine raises levels of dopamine in the brain. If you listened to Abelard's interview, you'll know that Dopamine boost is an vital factor in the CILTEP stack. Given that I've had so little exposure to caffeine over the years, well I have a feeling that I feel the effects a lot more than someone who drinks 4 cups of coffee a day.

So the question is, is it only the caffeine making me feel this way, or does the CILTEP stack just work better with the Caffeine + L-Theanine combo? I'm wagering it's the second.

Day #3 Kind of.

I'm going to cheat a little here. You see, I've in fact been using the CILTEP stack for more than 3 days, testing with different dosage amounts, and going with and without the Smart Caffeine. Instead of boring you with my daily accounts, I'll tell you my overall conclusions in one sentence: CILTEP routinely works better for me when taken in combination with Smart Caffeine, ie: Caffeine + L-Theanine. In fact, it works so well, that I'm at ease giving CILTEP + Smart Caffeine a big thumbs up.
