Benefits of Sulbutiamine and Caffeine Nootropic Combo

Sulbutiamine and caffeine is a fairly new nootropic combination but seems promising. Sulbutiamine is a nootropic that is designed to improve your mood, boost your memory and give you an increase in energy. What makes this combination unique is that sulbutiamine has energy boosting properties similar to that of caffeine, but of course it is taken with caffeine which can give you even more energy and possibly reduce the effects of a caffeine crash. Sulbutiamine raises the levels of thiamine and thiamine phosphate esters in the brain, which results in increased focus and endurance.

Sulbutiamine Benefits

Scientific studies have also been done to learn more about sulbutiamine benefits. Research has shown that sulbutiamine effects people who suffer from asthenia, which is a medical condition where people experience severe fatigue and muscle weakness. This is because sulbutiamine helps aid in boosting energy and athletic performance. Sulbutiamine is also often added to energy drinks and studies have been done that shows significant increases in mental focus and reaction time performance. The sulbutiamine dosage that is recommended is between 200mg and 500mg up to two times daily with food. Anyone taking sulbutiamine powder or capsules should never exceed that amount within a 24 hour time period.

Another study done for mice was said to have improved memory by increasing retention, which resulted in increased performance. It has also been tested on patients with chronic post infectious fatigue (CPIF) with doses of 400mg daily, which noted that the group had significantly less fatigue than the group with the placebo. Improvement was reportedly noted in 91.37% of the people tested with multiple sclerosis, with 74.13% of them reporting that the improvement was substantial. In addition to improved mental focus and increased fatigue, there are also reported effects on the eyes and sexual performance.

Thiamine is known to be lower in glaucoma patients, with studies that show that thiamine injections increase visual acuity, and sulbutiamine is a molecule in which two thiamin (B1) molecules are bound together. The study showed that sulbutiamine was able to reduce cell death when cells were deprived of serum. Sulbutiamine benefits for psychogenic erectile dysfunction have also been noted, which was said to have increased performance. Sulbutiamine seems to have a lot of benefits and positive effects, so what happens when sulbutiamine is tied in with the benefits of caffeine in a nootropic combo?

Caffeine Benefits

Caffeine is also highly stimulatory and improves physical performance when it comes to both endurance and strength. It is also classified as a nootropic due to its mentally stimulatory actions and sensitization of neurons. When caffeine supplements are combined with sulbtiamine powder or capsules, the affects become apparent. It is reported that this nootropic combo will give you a high boost in energy, with significant increases in endurance. It has been reported that the crash that comes as caffeine wears off is greatly reduced, which is more than likely due to the sulbutiamine supplement that is added. This nootropic stack is highly effective and a great choice if you want to see improved mental performance and increased physical endurance.
