The Best Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) Stack

It was once believed that after our nervous system developed, we had a set amount of nerve cells that declined with age. It was only until recently that it was discovered that our body is actually able to generate new nerve cells, including brain cells, well into our adult lives.

In 1979, Nobel Prize winner Rita Levi-Montalcini discovered Nerve Growth Factor, or NGF, a special protein that is important for the survival, maintenance, and even growth of nerve cells, including brain cells.

By maximizing the amount of NGF in our body, we are setting the stage for our body to optimize our neural network, creating stronger and more abundant synaptic connections which would result in authentic long-term improvements for brain functions including cognition and memory.

We are talking about real improvements in our brain’s physiology that may have lasting lifetime benefits.

The NGF Stack

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

You should expect some instant cognitive enhancement from this NGF nootropic stack but real lasting effects will be once your brain has had the chance to create stronger neural connections.

Expect great long-term benefits from this stack.

1x per day

  • 300 mg Uridine
    Uridine, combined with Omega 3’s from fish oil, helps protect neuron cell membranes.
  • 2 g Fish Oil
    Synchronizes with Uridine. Utilized by the majority of the brain in numerous functions.
  • 15 mg Zinc
    Regulates synaptic function between neurons.
  • 250 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 NGF production.

  • 500 mg Ashitaba
    Increases NGF production.
  • 5 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 and hard to find.

This is one of the most complete supplement stacks for promoting Nerve Growth Factor production with the intention of creating stronger and more abundant neural connections.

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.
