CILTEP® is a natural nootropic featuring a patented formula for optimal mental performance.
The benefits include:
- Increased motivation and mental endurance
- Improved concentration and alertness
- Improved mood and social ease
- Increased ability to study
CILTEP® is used every day by thousands of people around the World, including CEOs, Wall Street Executives, college students, scientists and creatives.
CILTEP is a natural nootropic that combines artichoke extract and forskolin to naturally induce long-term potentiation. Formulated by its creator Abelard Lindsay, CILTEP is a healthy way to stay focused, alert, and motivated for hours.
Users typically experience results for 8-14 hours. One bottle contains 60 capsules.
Premium Artichoke Extract
Artichoke extract contains Luteolin, a safe natural inhibitor of PDE4. PDE4 inhibitors have been shown to have significant nootropic effects including increased cognition, improved long term memory, increased wakefulness, and neuroprotection.
Forskolin derived from Coleus Forskohlii activates the enzyme adenylyl cyclase which increases intracellular levels of cAMP. The result is an overall improvement of cognitive function, especially memory formation and retention of new information.
ALCAR is an acetylated form of the amino acid L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine is present in many foods but can also be synthesized in the liver. When cAMP is increased in neurons by forskolin, studies have shown that levels of acetylcholinesterase are also increased. We added ALCAR to the stack to help mitigate the effects of increased acetylcholinesterase on short-term memory and energy.
Vitamin B6 is required for the biosynthesis of several neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin, and GABA. CILTEP features the metabolically active form of Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) to ensure optimal cognitive function.
L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid found in some foods that the brain uses to make dopamine. This amino acid acts as fuel to support efficient dopamine metabolism for maximum motivation and a positive mood.
World Memory Champion
“This is a very interesting area…”
“My wife set up a blind study for me because I got my hand on some CILTEP… We did a blind test… Out of these 20 trials that I did in these 10 days, my four fastest ones were all on CILTEP.”
World Series of Poker 2014 Champion
“I’ve relied on CILTEP as my go-to product to optimize mental performance for the seven week long WSOP.”
“It definitely helped me get through the long days and stay focused all the way through. I’ve noticed a remarkable difference in my ability to spend hours at a table without a break in concentration. This product really works.”
The Bulletproof Executive
“I am seriously impressed with CILTEP”
“CILTEP has earned a place alongside world-class smart drugs. It works synergistically with them to help you do – and be – more.”
CILTEP naturally increases focus and improves memory by inducing Long-Term Potentiation.
Long-Term Potentiation (LTP) is a long lasting enhancement in signal transmission between two neurons that results from stimulating them both at the same time. LTP is one of the major cellular mechanisms behind learning and memory. Memories are formed or “encoded” in the brain by creating LTP.
CILTEP achieves LTP by: 1. Inhibiting Phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4), and 2. Increasing cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP).
PDE4 is an enzyme that breaks down cAMP molecules, messenger systems that relay signals in the brain. Inhibition of PDE4 blocks the breakdown of cAMP, thereby increasing levels of cAMP within brain cells. PDE4 Inhibitors have been shown to have significant nootropic effects including increased cognition , improved long term memory , increased wakefulness , and neuroprotection. 
Artichoke Extract is the safest and most effective PDE4 Inhibitor. There are other herbal supplements that can also perform PDE4 Inhibition but they have all been found to have significant side effects. CILTEP has 900 mg of the highest quality Artichoke Extract in each serving.
An herbal supplement named Forskolin (active compound extracted from the root of the Coleus Forskohlii plant) is the only known supplement to naturally increase cAMP levels. It activates the enzyme adenylyl cyclase which then increases intracellular levels of cAMP. CILTEP features premium Coleus Forskohlii standardized for 20% Forskolin. There are 4 mg of Forskolin in each serving of CILTEP.
Increasing cAMP and inhibiting its degradation (through PDE4 Inhibition) induces Long-Term Potentiation (LTP). The result is a significant overall improvement in cognitive function, especially memory formation and retention of new information.
Summary: PDE4 Inhibition + Increasing cAMP → LTP → Learning and Memory
CILTEP & NEUROTRANSMITTERS
CILTEP makes normal dopamine metabolism more effective at triggering the motivation, learning, and memory processes. Meanwhile the chemical dynamics of the dopamine system are preserved, avoiding the negative side effects associated with using traditional dopamine stimulation (such as is found in prescription stimulants).
Research has shown that increased intracellular cAMP increases the rate of dopamine and acetylcholine synthesis.[9, 10] L-Phenylalanine, L-Carnitine, and Vitamin B6 are included in the CILTEP formula to maintain optimal neurotransmitter levels.
L-Phenylalanine and L-Carnitine are amino acids found in some foods that the brain uses to make dopamine  and acetylcholine. These natural nutrients synergize perfectly with Artichoke Extract and Forskolin, preventing fatigue and creating long lasting results with a lift in mood.
For an additional boost in drive and focus, moderate doses of natural stimulants stack very well with CILTEP. Certain types of tea and coffee may work but SMART CAFFEINE is ideal for achieving optimal alertness without the nervousness and jitters from regular caffeine sources. Be extremely cautious with stimulants because CILTEP magnifies their effects.
DEDICATION TO QUALITY
Natural Stacks formulas contain premium ingredients which are carefully selected solely on the basis of quality and purity. We actively seek out the most bioavailable forms of each ingredient, and avoid the cheap synthetic forms used by the majority of supplement companies.
Most companies use “proprietary blends” so they don’t have to tell you the amount of each ingredient in their formulas. It’s a shady and sometimes dangerous practice. At Natural Stacks we believe it’s your right to know exactly what you’re putting into your body. We proudly publish our innovative formulas in an open source format.
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
If for whatever reason you’re unsatisfied with your Natural Stacks, you can return the product within 30 days for a full refund. We also provide actionable tips on our blog and support in our forum for you to maximize your performance with our premium products.
