Aniracetam Under 23
Hello fellow brainhackers,
recently I found out that my blood pressure is really low and after a bit of research I understood that it's probably caused by high iNOS levels.
As DA wrote on the posts I linked, iNOS levels are raised when choline levels are high and, as you all know very well, choline dominance doesn't help at all.
Here come my questions:
1) Is it TK that I am choline dominant even though after almost three months supplementing ALCAR and eating tons of eggs I've experienced jaw tension only last week for the first time? Is it that I mistook what's meant with "jaw tension"?
Since last week I've started to reduce egg intake and I cut off completely ALCAR from my morning stack. After I eat eggs, I feel a slight pressure around my temples, but nothing more. IF I tighten my jaws, THEN I feel kinda tense (for a few seconds), but nothing really alarming.
2) Is it possible to BECOME choline dominant?
Then the main question of the topic.
3) A fast way to deplete the high amount of choline would be using -racetams, would it violate the "no-nootropics-under-23-because-the-brain-isn't-fully-developed rule" if I'm actually 22? How do I understand that my brain is fully developed? How do you measure it?
Thanks for the attention

I began using upgraded bulletproof coffee at the same time as aniracetam and choline. Coffee and racetams were exceptionally great. Then I tried DMAE and huperzine- a. Shortly after this, I began getting very bad orthostatic hypotension, headaches and a generally off feeling, within 1-3 hours of consuming the coffee and aniracetam/choline. After reading this article and having Dave respond to a forum comment, it is a high probability I am choline dominant. Some suggestions from Dave for others having potential choline issues.
"Try turmeric, ginger, glutathione, betaine HCL, hydroxycobalamin, P5P, magnesium, and very high dose 5-MTHF (aka folate, NOT folic acid). Do not take folate without a source of B12."
I am going keep eating raw ginger, taking betaine HCL and magnesium and also consume higher doses of piracetam to lower choline levels. I had coffee for first time in a week, today and still felt the affects.

Joshua, you completely overwhelmed your choline system. When this happens you may benefit from piracetam because it lowers choline, and unfiltered (metal filter) coffee is a good idea (stops iNOS problem that excess acetylcholine causes.) And stay the heck away from huperzine and any other cholinesterase inhibitors (like pesticides and roundup).
