    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 ?)

    High doses Thiamine reversed my puffy nipples somehow, and make me more resonable to decisions, less panic.

    How long do the effects last after a big dose? Let's say 500 or 1000 mg

    Do you guys find thiamine HCL better than the fat soluble forms? They sound dangerous.

    Sulbutiamine I didn't notice anything extra special. I take cilantro extract to prevent the body odor effect because I read about cilantro preventing this in another thread. One dropper full of alcohol extract in my bottle of juice that takes me 3 days to finish.

    Yeah, you'd be immune to alcohol induced Korsakoff.

    Why so much ? At some point, it doesn't augment anything

    Doses in the 300 mg range lower ammonia, and higher doses of caffeine tend to raise ammonia.
