Frequently Asked Questions

Common LifeStacks Questions:

1. What makes Lifestacks unique?

Unlike other nootropics companies, Lifestacks is focused on enhancing your experience no matter the occasion. To do this, we’ve created a set of nootropics that cut no corners. Our holistic approach to mind-body wellness allows people like you to completely optimize their health with no compromises.

2. Are all of your ingredients natural?

Most of our ingredients come from roots, herbs, or natural extracts. Some ingredients like B-vitamins or citicoline occur organically but cannot be isolated without refinement. In other words, many of our ingredients come straight from the ground while others are concentrated to increase their potency.

General Nootropic Questions:

1. What is a nootropic?

A nootropic is a substance that may improve memory, mood, and cognition by reducing inflammation, manipulating neurotransmitters, and promoting cellular function. Guess what? You might have already used a nootropic today: coffee! While 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine (a.k.a caffeine) is the most widely used nootropic, many more are under-utilized yet just as effective.

2. What is a stack?

A ‘stack’ is a combination of multiple nootropics that are thought to synergize and augment each other’s effects. Green tea contains one of the most popular natural stacks: L-theanine and caffeine. These two natural ingredients work in perfect harmony to give you the optimal caffeine buzz.

3. How do these stacks optimize your brain?

Short answer: by reducing neuronal inflammation, improving cellular energy production, increasing key neuronal proteins, and modulating targeted neurotransmitters. Basically, our capsules contain ingredients that love your brain and your brains loves back. This kind of brain food makes a healthier brain and a healthier you.

4. Will any of these stacks make me smarter?

None of our stacks will make you smarter. Instead, they optimize the biological machinery already available, making you a more productive version of yourself. We are in the business of making your best day, every day. Think of it like sharpening a knife you already own; you aren’t buying an entirely new knife, just perfecting the one you have.

5. Why do people use nootropics?

People use nootropics for a variety of reasons. While every nootropic supports brain health, specific uses range from increasing productivity to promoting sociability. That’s why we created Lifestacks. We wanted to give you comprehensive stacks suitable for a variety of occasions.

6. How to get the most out of nootropics?

Just like any other substance, everybody responds a little differently to nootropics. It’s important to do a bit of due diligence and experiment with timing and dosages to see what works best for you. Remember too that exercising and eating right are all part of a healthy, productive lifestyle. 

7. What is cycling?

Cycling is the process of taking a nootropic for a specified number of days or using them on a few designated days during the week. Cycling is designed to decrease the tolerance your body builds to a substance's acute effects. For example, you may know of some people who only drink coffee a few times a week so that it retains its potency.

8. What is CBD?

Cannabidiol or CBD is a critical cannabinoid derived from hemp or cannabis that has been shown to decrease inflammation, increase neuroprotection, and promote relaxation. It is legal and safe to use.

9. Will CBD make me high?

No, cannabidiol will not make you high. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive or euphoric, but instead induces a smooth sense of calm.

10. Will CBD show up on a drug test?

No, it will not. Our products contain CBD isolate, which is the purest form of CBD and contains only 0.0 to 0.3% of THC -- not enough to get you high or show up on a drug test.

11. Are the ingredients third party tested?

We work with manufacturers who are third party tested and we have certificates of analysis that we'd be more than happy to share with you if you are curious. The safety and purity of our products are our highest priority. After all, we originally designed Flow and Chill for ourselves and our friends and families. 

Questions About Flow

1. What is in Flow?

Flow is a nootropic stack with thirteen synergistic ingredients that include B-vitamins, coenzymes, antioxidants, acetylcholine precursors, and adaptogens. Each herb, root, or isolate in the capsule is of the highest quality to maximize its efficacy.

2. Will I notice an immediate effect?

Flow is designed to provide an acute effect that gets you in the zone. People report a new sense of mental energy smoother than your typical coffee. Flow does this by augmenting acetylcholine synthesis and thus improving cellular energy production in the brain.

3. When should I take Flow?

Take Flow an hour or two upon waking to energize you for the day. If you have coffee on the way out the door, lucky you: Flow is the perfect complement to coffee.

Questions About Chill

1. What is in Chill?

Chill’s eleven synergizing ingredients include B-vitamins, minerals, roots, and herbs. Each herb, root, isolate, and mineral promotes relaxation and reduces inflammation leading to a more calm and composed you.

2. Will I notice an immediate effect?

Chill is designed to induce a feeling of calmness and relaxation after ingestion. We’ve labeled Chill’s effect as ‘relaxation without sedation’ allowing you to wind down before bed or induce a sense of calm during a particularly stressful day.

3. When should I take Chill?

Chill is designed to be taken any time of the day with varying doses. For a restful night’s sleep, we recommend taking a single capsule within an hour of going to sleep. To successfully chill out during the day, we recommend two capsules with or without a meal.

Other Questions

1. Who do we use to ship our product?

We use USPS to ship our mail. We most commonly utilize priority mail or first class shipping depending on your preference for shipping speed and the weight of the package being sent.

2. Can you internationally ship?

Yes, we do ship internationally! It is still essential that you understand your countries guidelines and laws surrounding hemp derived CBD before purchasing.

3. What happens if the package is stagnant when tracking its status?

USPS sometimes does not scan their product until it arrives at its destination. This practice makes it appear that USPS is ‘awaiting item’ when indeed it has been dropped off and is in transit. Not to worry!

4. Can I travel with Lifestacks products?

Traveling internationally with Lifestacks is generally no problem, but its still a good idea to check the legality of hemp-derived CBD products at your destination.

5. How should I store the capsules?

We recommend storing the capsules in a cool, dry environment out of direct sunlight to increase the capsules' longevity.
