Ciltrep Nootropic Stacks a new natural nootropic brain supplement created from the combination of artichoke extract and forskolin, and it works synergistically with choline-boosting nootropic stacks. The company behind this product is Natural Stacks.
According to the manufacturer, Ciltrep (which stands for “Chemically Induced Long-Term Potentiation”) improves healthy learning and memory in the brain by supporting and optimizing levels of intracellular second messengers.
Ciltrep Nootropic Stacks is recommended for those who need to focus intently on a task or series of tasks over a period of several hours, but also for those who need to learn a lot of new material (students for example).
Ciltrep Nootropic Stacks contains the following ingredients: Ciltep Nootropic Stack includes the following ingredients: Vitamin B6 5 mg, Artichoke extract (Cynara scolymus leaf) 900 mg, Coleus Forskohlii root extract 20 mg, L-Phenylalanine 500 mg, Acetyl-L-Carnitine 750 mg, vegetable capsule, cellulose, vegetable stearate, and silica.
If you go to the official website, you will find a lot of useful information on this brain supplement, but the information available there might be a bit confusing for some readers. According to Natural Stacks, the general idea behind Ciltep Nootropic Stack is to increase CAMP and thus CREB activation. CAMP stands for “Cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate” (which is created from ATP – our cell’s energy currency) and CREB stands for “CAMP Response Element Binding Protein”
CREB is a “cellular transcription factor”, meaning that it can bind to DNA sequences in order to increase or decrease downstream gene transcription. Clinical studies showed that CREB can support the neural plasticity and long term potentiation. On the other hand, low levels of CAMP have been linked to many neurological disorders, including Huntington’s disease.
All this may sound like gibberish but the bottom line is that the forskolin (which comes from the Coleus Forskohlii plant extract), has the property to increase CAMP in the cells. While forskolin increases CAMP in the cells, the Artichoke extract prevents it from being broken down. And these are the two core ingredients of Ciltep Nootropic Stack.
Next to these two plant extracts, Ciltep Nootropic Stack also contains L-Phenylalanine, an essential amino-acid and precursor to dopamine. L-Phenylalanine has also been linked to various brain health improvements, including better memory, focus, increased concentration, etc.
Finally, vitamin B6 is included to help with the synthesis of neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin and GABA.

All in all then, our team impression on Ciltep Nootropic Stack has been fairly mixed. If you like reading our reviews on various brain supplements, then you know that we like formulas that include amino-acids (especially essential amino-acids) and we somehow dislike formulas with too many ingredients or too many herbal extracts that simply cannot work together.
Ciltep Nootropic Stack has a bit of both. The inclusion of L-Phenylalanine and Acetyl-L-Carnitine is great and we do believe that these two ingredients can work and deliver some of the claimed benefits. At the same time, the supplement also contains two herbal extracts (Artichoke and Coleus Forskohlii), but these herbal ingredients are used with ingenuity – they may actually work together!
For us Ciltep Nootropic Stack it’s an interesting brain supplement. We can’t say it’s a 100% perfect nootropic but then we would argue that no nootropic is perfect.
