    I keep hearing how some nootropics should be taken with food. I want to know specifically why or what type of food they should be taken with.



    Here are a few that Im taking and I know should be consumed with food



    Deprenyl Idebenone Pramiracetam



    I would like to know if just consuming a few capsules of fish oil would be enough to assure proper absortion. Would a piece of fruit suffice for absortion (Im guessing that at least with pram a little fat should be involved).



    I also so have the opposite question... Of the other stuff Im taking what is best consumed on an empty stomach, meaning that food would actually make less of it absorbed (like DLPA and ALCAR for eg.)



    Piracetam Picamilon Centrophenoxine Choline Theanine Ashwagandha

    Bacopa Rhodiola



    Is there any consensus about r-ALA having to be consumed with fat in order to make it bioavailable?





    Help much apreciated.

    I would take deprenyl, idebenone, pramiracetam, centrophenoxine, picamilon and choline with food. Piracetam, well it's up to you. And I would take theanine and ashwagandha on empty-stomach. About the fat issues, I'm not sure, but I guess fish oil would be OK... I don't know about r-ALA, first time I heard it has to be taken with fat... Actually, I think ATB reported "energizing effects" from Glycine and r-ALA on empty stomach...

    what about rhodiola and bacopa



    I gather from what your saying that there is not much difference in absortion wether the piracetam be taken with or without food.



    Im combining pram, pira, ideb and picamilon into one pill.



    Thanks



    Bump for more
