Winter Doldrums?

During the winter season, many people suffer from a lack of vitamin D3, which is the vitamin that your body naturally produces with the sunlight.  As a result of this lack, the bones and muscles can be affected as well as the emotions.  Some people suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).  Some contend with depression.  In the northern hemisphere where the sun sets early, people are more greatly affected.  A general, overall feeling of lethargy sets in.  And coffee shops are booming.

Does our brilliant new world have a remedy for the winter blues?  Although it’s not possible to alter the cycles of the sun, there is a way to wake up our brain without the jitters of a caffeine overload.  Smart drugs support your smarts.  And, in so doing, eliminate the winter doldrums.  So, if you feel like you are on the edge of exhaustion, maybe it’s time to try a different approach.

Cheer Up with Adrafinil

In case you haven’t heard of Adrafinil, it’s a substitute for Modafinil that actually metabolizes into Modafinil in the liver. It has become widely popular due to the fact that it’s more accessible than Modafinil to buy online. And, just like Modafinil, Adrafinil boosts energy levels and greatly alleviates fatigue and depression. That’s not to mention the impact it has on your cognitive abilities. You’re wide awake and ready to conquer the next task with this brilliant Smart Drug under your belt. Picture the Energizer Bunny. That’s you.

You know that overwhelming sleepiness that hits right in the middle of your busy work day? Gone. What’s more, your mood will be improved. So, don’t be surprised if co-workers notice that the grouch has left the building. Along with these improvements, a razor-sharp focus will have you producing more than you ever thought possible. And, without the strain on your nerves that coffee can cause.

Use Discretion

When Adrafinil is ingested into the body, it goes to the liver to be metabolized into the active form of Modafinil. Now, this can put a strain on the liver, which is why it should be taken in moderation. For most people who have a healthy liver, it’s generally not going to be a problem. Still, we need to keep one eye on our liver when using this precursor because it can cause the liver to produce excess enzymes and that’s not a good thing.

Addresses a Range of Illnesses

On the upside, Adrafinil is legal to purchase in most countries while Modafinil requires a prescription. Additionally, it can address the fatigue that accompanies many illnesses including depression, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, SADS, etc.  It was synthesized in 1974 in France as a nootropic used to reduce fatigue and the sleepiness that occurs with insomniacs.

Popular with Students

Much of Adrafinil’s popularity grew in the student community as a study aid. Students quickly discovered its usefulness to sharpen their focus and clarity while studying or writing exams or working long hours. Shift-workers also use it as a supplement to help them to alter their wake-sleep routines so that they can stay alert a focused during their working hours.

The Difference Between Adrafinil and Modafinil

Because Adrafinil metabolizes in the liver, it can take a little longer for it to take action. It may take up to one hour longer than Modafinil for you to begin to notice its effects. The conversion ratio is 3:1. So, for example, 300 mg of Adrafinil is equal to 100 mg of Modafinil.

How Does This Precursor Work?

Adrafinil, after it converts to Modafinil, binds to the transporters of the neurotransmitters, dopamine and noradrenaline and thereby blocks their reuptake. As a result of this action, dopamine and noradrenaline increase. Also, there’s an indication that this bioactivity raises the concentrations of serotonin, glutamate, histamine, and orexin. It’s all in your head.

The Research

Doctors and professionals are making use of Modafinil increasingly to help reduce sleepiness and chronic fatigue. These are a couple of the symptoms that are seen in multiple sclerosis, narcolepsy, insomnia, depression, and fibromyalgia. A lot of research has gone into this nootropic so that there is scientific evidence to back up Adrafinil’s powerful effects to overcome sleepiness and fatigue.

Of course, a main advantage of Adrafinil is that is doesn’t bring on the jitters or hyperactivity. It can boost several areas of cognition like motivation, mood, attentiveness, and focus.


Adrafinil (300-600 mg) can improve feelings of alertness, attention, and improved mental capacity. 300 mg is the usual recommended dose. It’s enough to see significant reduction of fatigue and improvement of energy. However, it’s wise to use Adrafinil only when needed because it can negatively affect the liver with prolonged use. Also, avoiding alcohol in conjunction with the Adrafinil dose is a good idea so that the liver won’t be stressed.

A Random Study

A double-blind, randomized study was designed to evaluate the cognitive-enhancing potential of Modafinil. The researchers of this study gave 60 healthy, young adult male subjects one dose of 100 mg or 200mg modafinil or a placebo. The subjects were asked to perform a variety of psychological tasks designed to test focus and memory. The subjects who had been given Modafinil reported feeling more awake, energized, and focused. Additionally, their performance on cognition tests was improved.

In conclusion, the researchers reported that “Modafinil selectively improves neuropsychological task performance.”

Another Study

(These are studies using Modafinil which is the metabolite of Adrafinil. In other words, it’s the same supplement after it metabolizes.)

In another randomized, double-blind study, researchers gave 18 healthy adults either a placebo or Modafinil (4 mg/kg body weight, 300 mg on average). They then performed three 50-minute-long cognitive tests; one before supplementation, and two after. When it was compared to the placebo, Modafinil significantly improved their reaction time, motivation, focus, vigilance, and lowered fatigue during the final tests.

The conclusion of the researchers was that “results were uniformly positive with respect to subjective assessments of fatigue, motivation and cognitive performance.”
