  • Hi i really interested in your stack but mostly in substances for anxiety – i take Ashwagandha 2 gram 3 times a day and it really powerful are you familiar with another such effective supplements?that make me social and confident like Ashwagandha does?

  • I might recommend a magnesium supplement, such as magnesium glycinate or magnesium L-threonate for anxiety. L-threonate is the most likely to help with your mood and cognition, as it crosses the blood-brain barrier.

  • does ksm-66 make you more social and more confident? Does is it make a signifcant difference? Im am terrible is social situations, always have problems coming up with things to say which is probably due to lack of confidence and social anxiety.
