I'm thinking to try Natrure's answer this time, I was thinking of trying Doctor's best but it is out of stock!
I think I will take it on those days when I'm stressed or irritable but not everyday.
I called Doctor's Best last week. They told they will have their Bacopa by mid December. Meanwhile, I have been giving KeenMind from Prothera, which is supposed to be the same Bacopa as Doctor's Best (KeenMind = CDR-08, Doctor's Best = Synapsa, but CRD-08 = Synapsa). The problem with KeenMind is that it has a lot of fillers. I pored the contests of three capsules: Doctor's Best Synapsa, KeenMind CDR-08 and Nootropics Depot Synapsa. Doctor's Best had the greenest color (lowest amount of fillers), followed by Nootropics Depot and then KeenMind. On a positive side, KeenMind is the brand used in clinical trials on autistic kids in Australia, where by the way the company that makes CDR-08 and Synapsa is located (Flordis): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4690059/ KeenMind is also more convinient for me to give because it has the right dose for kids, 160mg, whereas I had to break Doctor's Best 320mg capsule into two halves. But, once Doctor's Best is available again, I am switching back to it.
