Nootropics 30 day trial Day 4: Cavalier - Cognitive & Stress Support.

What a difference a day makes. OK, a day and sleep.

So I got about 7 hours of sleep last night and I tried the Cavalier - Cognitive & Stress Support formula again this morning with no food and I was again back on track as far as focus goes. I popped the drug as I went to work at about 6AM on a completely empty stomach and I felt much more on task today and also much less irritable. I was also less paranoid than I typically am.

Today I was pretty alert the full time at work and still felt pretty good until about 5PM  or so. (I got off at 2:45PM)

The effects started to wear off around 5:30 or 6PM. I'm encouraged and will continue to try it with water and no initial food in the morning - although I don't recommend you try this as there is likely a reason they recommend it is ingested along with food.

Nootropics 30 day trial Day 3: Cavalier - Cognitive & Stress Support.

Today, Day 3, definitely didn't have awesome results but at the same time I failed to get my 6 hours of sleep as I was attempting to do.

I took the pills this morning and ate some yogurt at essentially the same time and had different effects from yesterday.

Shortly after taking the pills my heart began beating a bit faster and about an hour later that accelerated heart beat subsided.

As far as focus - as normal- for me it was gone - out the door. I could not keep my attention for the majority of the day.

So far the results seem very sporadic for this product.

Nootropics 30 day trial Day 2: Cavalier - Cognitive & Stress Support.

Today, I'll admit the test with "Cavalier" went a little different.



I popped the (2)  pills just before going to work.  I didn't notice anything immediate but my mindset was considerably more focused and much less "Monkey-Mind" than a typical day at work.

By contrast at a typical day at work I am usually distracted by anything and everything to a very negative degree but today I stayed on my task and actually got past a block I had editing video before by simply remaining focused.

I even skipped my usual lunch so I could power through and get some work done.

One thing I definitely did not do was pop the pills with a full meal. I had some yogurt shortly after popping the pill (maybe 20 minutes later) but I did not eat something before swallowing the pills. On the bottle it clearly suggests "Take One Serving (2 capsules) once daily with Food."

To be honest yesterday I had a nice 2- 2.5 course meal worth of 1/2 healthy & 1/2 really unhealthy food which may have affected how the first serving interacted with my body chemistry.

One definite side effect was that about 10 minutes after leaving work it was as if both brain and body united and said "We're done with this sh*t" and I became noticeably tired & less focused.

This could possibly be explained away by me only getting 4 hours of sleep last night (my average is 6 hours) so I will have to try getting some sleep tonight and see if that issue still lingers tomorrow assuming I do get my standard 6 hours of sleep in.

After talking to a friend/potential client shortly after arriving home about an hour later I was extremely exhausted. After our conversation I decided to lay down for a moment instead of sitting up for meditation and fell right to sleep - waking myself an hour and a half later.

I will update again tomorrow.

Nootropics 30 day trial Day 1: Cavalier - Cognitive & Stress Support.

So today I tried out two tablets of the supposed nootropic "Cavalier - Gentleman's product - Daily Cognitive and Stress support.

I popped two pills, waited and didn't really notice any marked brain function increase or tingling as I have with other products. There might have been a slight increase in brain function but it would have been distorted by me finishing my half-drunken can of my Monster energy drink shortly (30 minutes or so) after digesting the two tablets.

My brain was thinking more rapidly but primarily due to the energy drink I believe.

I will have a more controlled test tomorrow when I wake up. I will report at the end of the day.
