CILTEP contains a Nootropic stack that redefines the notion I had of cognitive supplements and their practical usage for mood, memory, and focus enhancement.

In order to enable the supplement to achieve its maximum effect, a 5 day coarse and subsequent daily review has been initiated to fully quantity, qualify, and validate the true potency of these ingredients and their synergistic effect on boosting productivity and the quality of various focus-intensive activities throughout the day.

Based on an examine.com study, CILTEP appears to have components with a long history of study and analysis. A brief survey of the publications supports this assessment that robust research has been conducted on all the ingredients forming a part thereof of the CILTEP stack, with repeated double-blind clinical trials as a matter of norm.

The CILTEP Nooptropic stack combines artichoke extract and forskalin, the later sounding like an herb you might harvest in the outer-banks of Skryrim’s town of Whiterun.

Off the launch pad, what I love about this product is its simplicity and non-pretentious components. Moreover, the list and component benefits of what’s in CILTEP are as follows.


Premium Artichoke Extract

Artichoke extract contains Luteolin, a safe natural inhibitor of PDE4. PDE4 inhibitors have been shown to have significant nootropic effects including increased cognition, improved long term memory, increased wakefulness, and neuroprotection.


Forskolin, derived from the ancient plant Coleus Forskohlii, activates the enzyme adenylyl cyclase which increases intra-cellular levels of cAMP. The result is an overall improvement of cognitive function, especially memory formation and retention of new information.


ALCAR is an acetylated form of the amino acid L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine is present in many foods but can also be synthesized in the liver. When cAMP is increased in neurons by forskolin, studies have shown that levels of acetylcholinesterase are also increased. We added ALCAR to the stack to help mitigate the effects of increased acetylcholinesterase on short-term memory and energy.

Vitamin B-6

Vitamin B6 is required for the biosynthesis of several neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin, and GABA. CILTEP features the metabolically active form of Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) to ensure optimal cognitive function.


L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid found in some foods that the brain uses to make dopamine. This amino acid acts as fuel to support efficient dopamine metabolism for maximum motivation and a positive mood.

A 5 Day Assessment:

I woke up this morning feeling tired, groggy, and singularly unmotivated. what can I say… It’s Monday morning and the entire work week is upon us.

But wait, a sudden realization surfaces. Today is the day I begin taking CILTEP. The lack of motivation suddenly drops, and behold, there it is, the budding light of inspiration. Today does not have to be a snow-man building exercise to get it going, with CILTEP I’m thinking hypersonic flight, sonic-boom kinda day.  1, 2, 3, chasing down the supplements with a fresh ice-cold glass of H20, I inhale and…..



nothing… Maybe this is going to take a few minutes.

Like clock-work, the effects begin to engage, subtly at first. I consume breakfast 15 or 20 minutes later along with my normal bevy of daily multivitamins.

At work I chug a cup of coffee, and suddenly, it hits me. I gain access to multiple chains of thoughts in a lattice like structure, it’s as if a blazing pathway had been crafted between my subconscious mind serving up precise thoughts and ideas when I need them.

Conversations become more fluent. I organize my ideas rapidly and can hold on to more items in working memory. Recognizing this is only day one, I am excited to see how the next 2 or 3 days progress.


So it has been 5 days since starting my daily morning regimen of CILTEP. I have noticed a few profound but important distinctions over the past couple of days.Taking this supplement first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and before eating (20-30 minutes) is optimal. By the time breakfast rolls around, the effects are pronounced. Heightened focus more precise verbal and episodic recall. Pairing the CILTEP with a coffee makes for a superior alertness throughout the morning which helps tremendously with motivation and stamina especially regarding tedious assignments at work and at home.

It was only after 3 days that the true potency of the stack became apparent. The effects were gradual. I noticed an improvement in memory recall and encoding in both my writing/reading, and high pressured tasks. The calmness and certainty that I had could feel in both an improved mood and enhanced recall amplified my productivity this week in the mornings especially.

The only draw back I can see with CILTEP is that by the evening, my energy levels were so well spent throughout the day that sustaining this optimum level was hard after 7 or 8PM at night. I would definitely recommend for longer lasting energy, adding time-phased  Nootropics to sustain performance as mentally draining activity. TruBrain would be an ideal companion of CILTEP, with the Piracetam and Oxiracetan constituents to perfectly compliment this robust stack.
