Physical and Mental Energy Boost while Preventing Sleepiness

Increased Energy 2,221 2 following raenamari
Are you having trouble staying awake and not having enough physical and mental energy for the day? Well then, this stack might be great for you. Not only does Phenylpiracetam provide you with the mental alertness you need but also, it does a great job enhancing your physical performance as well through raising Adrenaline levels in the brain. Moreover, Modafinil helps you stay awake while increasing cognitive functions and energy levels.

Health Notes & References

Although the exact mechanism of Modafinil is not fully understood, its wake-promoting effects may be attributed as being an adrenergic receptor agonist. Modafinil activates brain peptides called orexins or hypocretins which in turn, increases dopamine, norepinephrine and histamine levels thus promoting wakefulness and increasing energy levels. Moreover, the improvement of the user's memory and function can be attributed by the enhanced neuronal sommunication brought about by the positive modulation of Glutamate receptors and the inhibition of Glutamate breakdown.

It should be administered in the morning for treating narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea, and one hour prior to work in those with shift work disorder. It can be taken with or without food. The 400 mg dose may not be more effective than the 200 mg dose. Modafinil is generally taken in the morning to promote wakefulness. Since it has a long half-life, it should not be administered later than noon time so as not to interfere with sleeping at night. For shift work disorder, a 200mg dosage should be taken an hour prior to work.

Important Safety Information:
-Do not drink alcohol when using Modafinil. Since Modafinil may cause dizziness, consumption with alcohol may worsen the effects.
-Contact your doctor right away if there is development of rash since Modafinil usage is strongly associated with serious skin conditions (e.g. Steven-Johnson syndrome).
-Modafinil is not approved for use by children and should be used with caution with the elderly since they are more sensitive to its effects.
-Consult with your doctor first if you are pregnant or breast-feeding a child.
Side Effects:
Headache, nausea, nervousness, anxiety, dizziness, and difficulty sleeping may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Recommendations for daily dosage is 200-600mg and should be taken 2-3times a day. However, we should take note that it is always wise to start with the lowest effective dose and increase gradually as needed especially for this drug that has a higher bioavailability. For example, Phenylpiracetam may be taken 3 times daily with 100mg each dosage. Please also understand that this supplement does result in tolerance, so it should not be taken every day or on a long-term basis. A commonly reported side effect of Primaracetam is headache, which can generally be eliminated with the addition of Choline
***The use of phenylpiracetam by professional athletes has been banned on the World Anti-Doping Agency (Olympics) due to its reported psychostimulatory and cold resistance properties.

Dosage Compound Frequency Dates Notes
Phenylpiracetam is essentially Piracetam with a phenyl group attached to it. This new structure in turn, increases the drug's potency by allowing its molecules to pass the blood-brain barrier more easily. Although the exact mechanism of Phenylpiracetam is not fully understood, its boosting effects can be attributed to its close resemblance of phenylethylamine, an organic compound known for its stimulatory effects. The added structure of the phenyl group then increases the affinity of Norepinephrine and Dopamine- the neurotransmitters responsible for vigilant concentration, cognitive alertness and motor control. It also raises Noradrenaline levels in the brain thus enhancing physical performance as well.
Modafinil, a drug under the class of wakefulness promoting agents that is mainly used to treat narcolepsy ( a condition that causes excessive daytime sleepiness), other sleep disorders and shift work sleep disorder seems to have an impressive nootropic property via increasing levels of stimulatory neurotransmitters in the brain. This drug is used to promote wakefulness and helps you stay awake during long hours of work especially for people whose work schedules interfere with the normal sleep routine. However, we should take note that Modafinil does not make up for the lack of sleep and is not used to treat tiredness on people who were deprived of sleep. Moreover, its wakefulness-promoting properties promotes increase in the individual's energy and attentiveness and has been shown to produce significant cognitive benefits due stimulation of dopamine receptors, including increased learning capacity, better memory and faster recall.
Alpha-GPC is the most effective type of Choline which increases the production, synthesis, and secretion of acetylcholine, the brain chemical that is important for memory and learning functions. Also, instead of being a precursor to phosphatidylcholine (PC), GPC is actually a metabolite of PC which is important for the communication between neurons. A dose of 400mg is taken 2x daily.
Theanine is an amino acid (a building block for proteins) found in green tea. It has been shown that L-Theanine helps relieve stress by promoting relaxation and improvement in mood without the sedating effects. Also, it reduces Cortisol, the stress hormone.
