The biggest percentage of the population hasn’t heard of nootropics at all. Within this group of people who actually has heard of nootropics an even smaller number have heard of some of the latest and most potent drugs on the market. Potency and efficacy from anecdotal reports do not make them the most scientifically viable, but it does make you take a closer look at some of them.
In this article we are going to look at 3 different nootropic drugs that you may never have heard of. Most of these will give you a few alternatives so that you aren’t using the same things over and over again. More importantly, they are going to help you realize there are many options out there if you feel like the things you’ve been trying aren’t working.
Try These 3 Nootropics
Phenylpiracetam – this is a drug that some people know of but most do not. If you have been introduced to nootropics, you have probably heard of piracetam. This is the first drug in the racetam family of drugs, but it does not have the same (or even similar) effects as phenylpiracetam. The phenylpiracetam drug is a chemical compound that is not only useful for memory but mental stimulation as well.
Kratom – this is not something you should take lightly, but it is a very potent drug for anxiety and reducing stress. Many people use this drug as a way to improve their mental performance. There are many kratom benefits for relaxation, but it is important to use this responsibly. There are some people who find that kratom is addicting and it can cause problems for some people.
Centrophenoxine – another drug that you might have a hard time even pronouncing, this is a cholinergic which means that it helps to improve choline in the brain. This is the precursor for the compound called acetylcholine. The neurotransmitter acetylcholine is going to make a big difference for you in the long-run.
There are a number of ways for your to improve your brain health, but few people think of the small ocean creature called krill. This small animal is not even a fish, but instead is a crustacean living in the sea that is preyed on by whale and many other animals. Still, it is one of the most important sources of omega-3 fatty acids in the form of krill oil, which can be a cognitive boost for you. If you are eating a typical diet, you are probably deficient in omega-3 fatty acids and instead have a lot of omega-6 fatty acids.
This is a huge problem that is a product of modern diets and production. If you are trying to improve your mental concentration and clarity, it is a good idea to get the right balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. The imbalance comes from having foods with lots of sugars and corn-fed beef. Free range meat is rare these days, which means that the balance is often missing for modern westerners (and Americans especially).
There is really only way to remedy this situation if you are not going to eat pounds of fish weekly Most people can’t afford or do not want to eat that much fish to balance the fats. Therefore, it is a good idea to find supplements of some kind. While a regular fish oil is great and better than nothing, it is full of omega-3 fatty acids that don’t get absorbed well by the body and brain. Humans are much better at absorbing the omega-3 fatty acids from krill because of a nutrient called astaxanthin. This is a nutrient that helps aid in the absorption so that you get the best results from your supplementation regimen.
The title of this article is a bit misleading because you never skip breakfast unless you are dead. Let me explain: if you are eating at any point during the day, you are breaking your fast (I.e: breakfast). This is key because a lot of people have misplaced their faith in breakfast in the morning when it really would make more sense to get some food a couple times later in the day. Just consider how our ancestors ate and you’ll see that these 3 reasons to skip breakfast make the most sense.
Anti-cancer benefits – a number of studies show that skipping breakfast in the morning and having a smaller window of eating can have a profound impact on your health. One of the main reasons is a process called “autophagy”, which is used by the body to weed out old cells and organelles that are no longer needed. This has been shown in rats and in humans
Lose fat quicker – you will also notice that you lose fat a lot quicker if you are fasting as well. This is because after 8 hours after eating glucose, your body has to start burning fat in order to get the calories. That means it is tapping into your stored fat in order to burn the calories and that is always a better scenario.
You’ll be more mentally alert – think about our ancestors and how their brain and body worked. Do you think it worked better when they were hungry and needed to go out and hunt food or after it already had the food? In most cases, our ancestors needed to go out to get food and that meant being more alert and prepared.
