    Ray recently said, or at least I recently read, that you can take thiamine before studying and before test-taking.

    I took about 1000mg before I had work to focus on, and it made a huge difference in my focus and mental abilities.

    I'm going to take some from now on before big hairy projects requiring a lot of focus.

    My memory is also remarkably good when dosing B-vitamins, particularly thiamine, riboflavin-5-phosphate, niacinamide, p5p, and biotin.

    I saw tyw mention in another thread that taking high doses of any particular B vitamin may lead to deficiencies in others. I'm not certain if I'm shooting myself in the foot by not also taking the other B-vitamins.

    He also mentioned Energin because of the favorable ratio of riboflavin to biotin (12:1).

    Can a human even absorb that high amount of vit B1 ?( from what wikipedia says, average thiamine concentration in human tissues is around 25-30 mg, if wiki is true could the cognitive benefits be attained at lower doses say 10-15 mg ?)
