The Best NGF (Nerve Growth Factor) Stack

In a previous article, we learned about the woman who discovered NGF and how her daily use of it might have contributed to her extreme longevity and extra mental sharpness that extended long past the age where most minds begin to deteriorate. NGF is a small protein that is important for the survival, maintenance, and even growth of nerve cells, including brain cells.

I began to search for a nootropic stack specifically designed for promoting NGF which should result in long-term enhancement of the brain.

You should expect some instant cognitive enhancement from this NGF nootropic stack but most of the real results will be increasing factors that allow your brain to create stronger neural connections.

Expect great long-term benefits from this stack.

  • 300 mg Uridine
    Uridine, combined with Omega 3’s, helps protect neuron cell membranes.
  • 15 mg Zinc
    Regulates synaptic function between neurons.
  • 2 g Fish Oil
    Synchronizes with Uridine. Utilized by the majority of the brain in numerous functions.
  • 300 mg Alpha GPC
    Ensures sufficient levels of choline in the brain which is then converted to the acetylcholine neurotransmitter.
  • 3 g Lion’s Mane Mushroom
    Increases production of NGF.

  • 10 ml Ashitaba
    Increases NGF production by 20%.
  • 5- 10 mg Pregnenolone
    Increases neurogenesis.
  • 2 mg Melatonin (before bed)
    Reduces neuronal death.
  • 1 g ALCAR
    Reduces brain cell death.
  • 500 mg L-Tyrosine
    Synchronizes well with ALCAR.
  • 200 mcg NGF (eye drops)
    Optional, effective but expensive.

*Cred to AZabirko0901 from the Longecity Forums for the inspiration behind this very well-thought out stack.

This is one of the most complete supplement stacks for promoting long-term growth of nerve growth factor and brain cell growth which is not easily accomplished in other ways.

I personally take all of it except the NGF drops alongside my custom nootropic stack, and have noticed great benefits with the two combined. You won’t notice anything immediately, and it personally took my body about a week to adjust before taking these supplements started giving me very slight improvements. After a month or two, things really started ramping up. I hear around the 6 month mark, the real benefits start kicking in. We shall see.

    Hi awesome site.

    I was thinking about cycling this, 5 days of a good nootropic stack (weekdays) and in the weekends use the NGF-stack. Is this a good idea?

    Hello – This site has some interesting advice, most of which is, IMHO, safe enough. I have tried many nootropics myself, with varying results.

    However I must point out that 100mg per day of pregnenolone is not a good idea. This is a very powerful hormone which is the precursor to many other hormones, including for example androgens (testosterone) and estrogens. Your body is a finely balanced machine, and with this you are seriously messing with it.

    If you take it at all, take much, much lower doses and with very regular breaks. Or at the very least, do the research before you take this high a dose.

      Hi Gav. This stack was originally suggested by a Longecity forum member and upon further inspection, due to your comment, the pregnenolone dose seems incorrect. We’ve modified it accordingly.

    Can I stack it with the study stack?

    • Braintropic

      Yes, there should be no problem with stacking them together.

        Thanks man!
