Tweet Ketosis is a state the body may find itself in either as a result of raised blood glucose levels or as a part of low carb dieting. Low levels of ketosis is perfectly normal.

    With the high fats one consumes during ketosis, your brain and nervous system has plenty of easily-metabolized energy. I was using MCT oil, avocados, fish, etc. I was blending up protein shakes which contained high levels of healthy fresh fruits and so on. I was consuming Wheatgrass juice. And I was supplementing with many natural herbs and vitamins.
    As for nootropics, I was using Cognitex by the Life Extension Foundation.
    I was also using Oxiracetam and Noopept.
    Additionally, I was using Ginkgo biloba, Bacopa extract, Chaga mushroom extract, Upgraded Glutathione, CILTEP, a B12 patch, Green Tea, Taurine, Iodine, Korean Red Ginseng Root, etc.
    Another thing which you might discount as a nootropic at first until you research it, is: Protein. I was using Upgraded Grassfed Protein made from New Zealand cows. Added to it is Colostrum which is the first few days of milk production by the cows.
    I also was eating raw Oysters, adding real grassfed butter to my meals, drinking San Pellagrino water, supplementing with Zinc, eating Pistachios, getting sunlight, Earthing, Exercising beginning in the Spring, doing cold therapy, etc.
    I can say that the results were excellent. My memory improved. My ability to hold much more complex ideas within the mind was vastly increased. You can imagine it as being able to reason with a thought which is made up of 2–3 dozen mini-thoughts and have them all integrated in a 3-dimensional model.
    I would love to help you answer more questions you may have. I coach people for optimal performance for a living. If you’d like to thank me, I can hook you up with sources for these supplements.

    Oh, P.S., I also used Magnesium which was quite gainful.
