I lead a busy life. Get up early in the morning, walk my dog, grab a quick bite to eat and a cup of coffee, head out the door and work all day, get home and spend a little bit of time with my girlfriend before crashing in bed face-first and starting it all over again the next day.
That early morning cup of coffee gradually turned into another couple once I arrived at my office, an energy drink to get me through the afternoon, and then I’d crash and feel sluggish and tired once I got home. As you can imagine, I was a joy to be around and my girlfriend was delighted.
I started looking into some an alternative to sugar and caffeine that would give me the boost I needed to get through the day. Amongst all of the medications and supplements I saw recommended online, one name kept popping up over and over again: Modafinil. I was intrigued and started reading up to learn more about Modafinil and what it does.
What is Modafinil?
Labeled the “safe, smart drug” by none other than The Guardian, Modafinil helps improve your level of alertness and focus, helping you concentrate and giving you extra energy on days when you feel like a zombie. Unlike caffeine, it has very few side effects. Also unlike caffeine, Modafinil is non-addictive.
I continued reading, wanting to understand exactly what Modafinil does in the body.
How Does Modafinil Work?
Glutamate is a neurotransmitter inside the brain that’s responsible for regulating our attention level and memory. Modafinil, it seems, bumps up our glutamate levels in the same way that caffeine does. In addition to this, it increases our serotonin levels. Serotonin, for those who don’t know, is a feel-good chemical (similar to dopamine) that helps regulate our moods, as well as improves our learning ability and memory.
Modafinil is also great for athletes in training. It helps increase motivation, improve alertness, supercharge motivation, and sharpen reflexes. It also comes without the nasty crash of caffeine and the weight gain and unwanted blood sugar spikes of sweet drinks and snacks.
Better mood, memory, and focus? Improved athletic ability? I was totally sold on Modafinil. I just wasn’t sure where to find it.
My Experience with Modafinil
Thankfully, it’s simple to find and purchase Modafinil online. I was able to get high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade Modafinil and have it delivered right to my front door.
After giving it a try, I will warn those new to taking it that pure Modafinil can be quite strong. I started by cutting my 200 mg tablets in half for the first week until I adjusted to it. I also learned that the half life of Modafinil is around 15 hours and the pill kicks in about an hour after I take it, so I simply pop one with breakfast in the morning and reap the rewards all day long.
I feel more sharp, focused, and better than ever. I’ve kicked my coffee habit to the curb and my girlfriend is glad to spend time with the happy, no-longer-exhausted me once again.
