Time = money, right? I have been experimenting with ALCAR + l-theanine stack for a while, in order to reduce sleep duration, increase the quality of sleep, and increase the feeling of well-being (during the day upon awaking, that is). I believe I have arrived at the proper protocol for achieving this. (I have been able to reduce my sleep about 1.5 hours / day). I would like some feedback, to see if the following formulation works with others. ============================ The protocol for its administration is as follows: (1) At about 3 hours before bed, (2) Take 1 g ALCAR + 600~800 mg l-theanine (on half-empty stomach) (3) Preferably, during maintenance calorie diet. A light meal between the time of the administration and bedtime actually seems to be helpful. (4) No exercise between the time of its administration and sleep. It takes one's body a day or two to adjust. ** 1 g ALCAR maybe too strong (I think actually 700 mg would be better).
