Nootropic StacksIn short, Caballo is the smart drug stack for smart consumers.

Over 5 years of operating the ethics watchdog site and personally trying over 70 different smart drugs, I became increasingly skeptical and disappointed with the majority of the stack products we see on the market. Primarily, because there is very little reason to believe that they actually contain the ingredients listed on their labels and in their clever marketing. Unfortunately we don't have tricorders (yet), so there's really nothing preventing dishonest people from selling 'brain supplements' containing nothing but sawdust at outrageous profit margins.

I am also beginning to suspect that a lot of those pushing Nootropic stacks send high quality, pharmaceutical grade Nootropics to bloggers (like myself!) to review and to their brand new customers and then over time send their repeat customers - who are going to be a whole lot more susceptible to the placebo effect - something completely different than what's on the label.

The bottom line is that smart consumers should look for 3rd party Certificates of Analysis. Caballo is the only Nootropic stack that is backed up with 3rd party COAs.

If the creators of a product don't put their real names and faces all over their website and (or) product, make no mistake, their long term economic incentive is to sell literal or figurative sawdust. The worst economic consequences they face for their deception is having to occasionally refund a bottle $29, $39 or $49 sawdust.

If anything I error on the side of personal transparency, putting my real name and image all over Caballo. The reputation I've built over 5 years in the Biohacking space faces serious repercussions if this product doesn't deliver. It's not marketing hyperbole when I say that I stand behind this product.

I've written at length about these issues in these articles on

Furthermore, there are relatively few Racetam rich stacks on the market, since I believe that Racetams are the most proven class of smart drug bringing a Racetam stack to the market is the right thing to do. Racetams are the only smart drugs that I'm aware of that have undergone 20 year long population studies, the risk profile in comparison to potential upside of these drugs is outstanding - it's the smart drug I'm comfortable giving to my mom.
