Natural Stacks CILTEP had a hand in helping Martin Jacobson win the World Series of Poker 2014 Main Event and $10 million this past week. Jacobson, also known as “Swede”, began with 8 to 1 odds at the WSOP Las Vegas November Nine table.

He outlasted the eight other finalists for twelve continuous gaming hours Monday night through Tuesday morning, and took down the final two competitors Tuesday night after another four hours of gameplay.

Jacobson credited CILTEP for helping him achieve such extended focus and concentration;

“I’ve relied on CILTEP as my go-to product to optimize mental performance for the WSOP. I’ve noticed a remarkable difference in my ability to spend hours at a table without a break in concentration.”

Memory Champion Tests CILTEP vs Placebo In Speed Cards Study

mattias-ribbing

My name is Mattias Ribbing. I’m a three times Swedish Memory Champion, officially honored as an International Grand Master of Memory and ranked as having among the top 100 best memories in the world of all time.

The world of memory sports is very concrete and measurable. Competitions consist of a decathlon where we encounter 10 different kinds of information, like names & faces, numbers, images, sounds, words and so on, which we have to commit to memory in huge quantities.

Lately I’ve become very interested in nootropics and CILTEP specifically. I decided to do some testing, applying the strict measuring standards of memory sports.

My wife Christine, who has a Ph.D. in medicine, helped me set up a protocol for a full blind test. For 10 days I did the official memory discipline “Speed Cards” each day. 5 days on CILTEP and 5 days on a placebo. This was randomized so I wouldn’t know what I had taken.

I can honestly say it has been 10 years since my brain has functioned on this level!

jayla-ciltep-stack-reviewHi! My name is Jayla Keane and I am a nationally certified critical care nurse in Tampa, Florida. I have been an ER and ICU nurse since 1997. The majority of my nursing career was spent in a very large Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit caring for very brain injured patients. While there I enjoyed working side by side with some of the nation’s best neurologists and neurosurgeons.

I am also a 45-year-old active mother of three kids and have been told I am in fantastic shape for my age. Due to Celiac disease, I have been grain free for some time.

My problems with memory

I started having concentration issues and problems with my memory about 10 years ago. I was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder as an adult and started on a medication regiment. As time went by, my symptoms progressed and worsened. I was constantly fighting the feeling of not being at my maximum potential.

Some Health Benefits of Resveratrol Could Theoretically Apply to CILTEP

Resveratrol, a chemical that naturally occurs in red wine in small amounts has been touted for its purported health promoting and life extending properties.

Resveratrol, Life Extension, PDE4 and CILTEP™

I recently attended the Transhuman Visions conference. The most popular topic that people spoke about was unlimited lifespans and how to achieve them. In light of that, I’d like to take a detour from talking about cognitive enhancement, which has been the subject of my previous articles, and instead explore some recent research into nutritional strategies for healthy aging.

Resveratrol, a chemical that naturally occurs in red wine in small amounts has been touted for its purported health promoting and life extending properties. Despite a lot of initial enthusiasm, its health enhancing properties have only proven robust in studies where mice were fed a high fat diet. In these cases, it increased the high fat diet mouse’s life span such that it matched the lifespan of mice who were fed a calorie restricted diet. Calorie restriction is a well known mechanism for extending the life span of many mammals [1].

Magnesium L-Threonate Can Improve Brain Function and LTP

magnesium-l-threonate-ltp

Long-Term-Potentiation (LTP) is a process critical for learning and memory. In my previous article I laid out evidence for how the racetams and CILTEP could act synergistically on different phases of LTP. In particular, evidence was presented for the racetam family’s helpfulness in activating early LTP (E-LTP) and CILTEP was examined in terms of its proposed effects on late LTP (L-LTP). E-LTP strengthens the effects of interneuronal signals for between 4-6 hours after the initial electrical signal (action potential) has been transmitted between brain cells (neurons) via their connecting synapse.

In contrast, L-LTP involves more permanent changes that can lead to neural network strengthening via protein synthesis and neuronal growth which can lead to memory encoding that can last for months or longer [1]. These are not the only two approaches that the medical literature suggests could be helpful for improving learning and memory. Magnesium L-Threonate (a key ingredient in MagTech™) has also shown its worth in several studies for increasing factors in the brain that are important for LTP.
