Dave Asprey is a con man. The guy sells "bullet proof" coffee and makes ridiculous claims about the health benefits of putting butter in your coffee. It's total BS and people that buy it are too dumb to realize. Why do you think comments are disabled on his videos???
I use Nootropics all the time and I don't "lay them out on my table and ask people to judge if I am doping or not"
This man is an attention seeker and suffering from superiority complex. Too bad, no med can fix that for him!
True confessions I have used by prescription both modafinal and provijil as well as nuvigil. Mod is mild compared to pro and nu. I got shit done, no question about it. but exactly as he is saying it turns you into a freaking zombie, you don't feel natural and you basically are wired. Am about to try the lions mane mushrooms to see if that's a better choice. Natural vs synthetic.
addy and meth is the same fucking shit. and ive heard from people that have done both adderall is even more euphoric and better. also it doesn't fuck up your neurotransmitters as much if you don't abuse it. so by all means. adderall is prescription meth. saying its not is like saying it's fine to smoke percoset but heroin is wayyy worse.
Dave Asprey, why are you such a wanna be doctor? Read your book, was not easy, because you write as if you copy n past it from wikipedia..
And there are so many points, which are not “bulletproof “ but bullshit. I get it, money is something good, but not lies...
Some guy hacking his body and giving interview and to view the full interview if you want me to go to your site and login with a social network account then fuck you. You any way get paid with ads on youtube.
Who cares? It’s all speed. I am going to give Modafinil a try because I really dont like how I eventually crash and angrier than usual on legal speed......I have used Adderall for a while but asked my for the Adderall XR instead. It’s better. Modafinil looks like I may get the benefit I want w/o feeling off. Good luck!
I took modafinil, ritalin, vigil, ephedrine and many more but never had the effects described in all those videos. At the moment I'm taking pure dexamphetamine (adderall is a mixture of d-amphetamine and l-amphetamine, which gives it a little less of the "kick" and "drug" feel actually). Dexamp still doesn't show any effects I'd want and just keeps me forcefully awake, but not concentrated etc. (methylphenidate doesn't either). I'm swimming in a pool of despair because of that. I'm only 18 and take the stuff for only a year now but looking in the future knowing I'm taking drugs that don't do what they should do only to get some of the effects and a ton of side effects is not soo awesome.
I've been diagnosed with ADHD for approximately 25 years (mixed type- which is often a factor in determining which drug and what dose is ideal for the patient). Also was a teacher specializing in adhd kids, and was also a pharmaceutical rep. Ive tried every single on-label adhd drug at multiple doses over the years, as well as most off-label drugs and of course vitamin/mineral/dietary combinations. I can say from my experience and other patients ive talked to that modafinil is effective, but more subtle in it's action, and seems to be far more effective on Type II (Inattentive) ADHD, followed by Type III (Mixed Type), but largely ineffective for Type I (Hyperactive Type). Stimulants will always feel more profound, however so are the side effects, particularly eating and sleeping habits which are the two critical factors in caring for your adhd brain. Also, there is no such thing as the "best" drug, as each person's brain reacts differently to each drug and is highly dose-dependent. This being said, for me personally, bi-phentin was one of the best, and cheapest. If I were to do stims again, it would be bi-phentin or Adderal. I am currently on 300mg of Modafinil and prefer it due to the side effect profile, and it is not likely to cause the manic episodes common to overstimulation. While it's true that you don't notice any kind of high, that is a good thing because we shouldn't have to feel high to function efficiently. In addition, diet change has been HUGE. I would recommend a mediterranian diet, or even keto; HIGH natural fats and protein, and as little carbs (especially... sigh... beer and other alcohol). In addition, magnesium biglyconate, 5-HTP, GABA, and MCT oil have been excellent supplements. Oh, and RedBull of course lol.
Asprey's analysis on decision making efficiency is spot on. Depending on brain chemistry, most people will experience tradeoffs between focus and executive functions when comparing Adderall to Modafinil. For research, brainstorming, and/or single-minded focus, Adderall is the winner hands down. But for efficiency, productivity, and execution of multiple ideas, projects, and people, Modafinil is much better than Adderall--probably the best in its class. Each has its primary use case for nootropics. To learn one topic in an obessive "down the rabbit hole" fashion to develop ideas or plans (i.e. entrepreneural brainstorming), start with Adderall. After that, for execution of those ideas or plans, take Modafinil because this part requires maximizing mental energy to juggle numerous moving parts. The key factor is when you actually start executing in a "Just Do It" manner.
Ritalin will make you have ED erectile disfunction and makes you bald! I took it for about 11 years and each time i took it my scalp would be so oily and made me bald! And also made me so violent it's a evil drug. I don't advise anyone to take this drug ritalin for a long period of time.
Adderall is not methamphetamine. Adderall is amphetamine (75% dextro 25% levo), which is far less potent than meth. The label does not say methamphetamine on it, that's just completely wrong.
Edit: obviously it was already said, big surprise. Good thing I'm wasting my time "contributing".
Poison drug, i was put on it for chronic pain because i have an incurable pain disorder. This drug was Methodone, which is used on Heroin addicts. They were dosing me at 140mg. I walked out of the clinic which i dont know how theyre running. their quote numbers dont matter meaning mgs . It went all against my schooling to become a doctor. I was desperate because id be screamimg in pain. I walked out of clinic after few weeks couldnt talk, body twisted forgot everything thought id never be anything again. I went off totally. in hospital i was 7 points from a coma and i have a 7 year old daughter. I fought called everywhere i could talking to expert pharmacists etc. I was in Mayo Clinic. Thank God for my life. Even though i have this scary disorder and painful im a little better and i have major determination even on the worst days. All meds affect people differently. Modafinil is called the rich corporate mans meth. i dont know nor would i want to. Im glad this guy shared his experience. Methadone is even for the Heroin Addicts a poison life sentence. its cheap who knows whats in it and the pharmacist i taaked to said its worse than the drug they took. its half life is very dangerous too.
Fluoride ( dangerous neurotoxin) in drinking water and food full of artificial additives and maybe even vaccines that you got in your early childhood is what trashing your brain. BTW drinking coffee everyday isn't healthy at all for your brain and body as a whole.
You know what really pisses me off... Before I get into that, I personally was prescribed Adderall at a very young age which I believe was totally unnecessary and wrong. I have been taking the pill for around 10 years and I can tell you first hand that I have experienced a full-on personality change over the years. It sucks, but it is too late to do anything about it. It has already made the lifelong changes to my brain. Now for the part that really pisses me off.... I wish I had control at a younger age over what was being put into my body. However, I trusted my doctor and nurses over the years and believed they were doing something right for me. However, I have experienced breathing problems, irregular heartbeat, depression, and major anxiety over the years. So being that I always thought the doctors were giving me something safe I lost who I really was deep down. The drugs took me over and I began regretting everything about Adderall. I wish I could sue for what I have experienced over the years, but to be honest nothing will ever give me my life back. So today, if you are reading this I want you to reconsider taking this prescription drug because it might possibly save your life. I am debating whether or not I should create a video series on this topic. Let me know in the comments section. Thank you for reading and I hope this was helpful.
To respectfully disagree with this video, there is no safe amount of Adderall over a long period of time.
It is all about them making money. They don't care about your health, they want your money. Just like the sugar "candy" business. They too don't care about you as a person.
Also, to respectfully disagree, Adderall can make anyone who needs it or not feel like they can defeat the world no matter what. I personally experience times where I literally can’t focus on something school related and feel the need to take it so I sit down and get it done; however, there are times when I feel upbeat and great but it only lasts for maybe 30 minutes. Adderall is not healthy for you at all and is basically made up as the same thing as Meth. Do be cautious if you are about to start taking something like this. You may enjoy its positive effects at first, but you will soon regret it. The longer you take it the more you regret it and feel the negative side effects. ALSO, I called the nurses hotline for my clinic/hospital which is very well known for their expertise, but they too have no idea what the hell you are talking about when you start talking about how you feel and what you experience on Adderall.... They aren’t the ones taking the drug first hand so they have no right to speak to people about the drug. That is my personal opinion. They have never experienced taking Adderall and then feeling like you may die because you heart is pumping through your chest. All I have to say is these pharmaceutical companies are screwing our lives up and the doctors behind it are too. I experienced this first hand for 10 years and I can honestly say I haven’t been the same since.
Modafinil just keeps you awake it does not make you concentrate any better than normal. The same way Chantix turns off the part of the brain that needs nicotine, the drug Modafinil turns off the ‘sleep’ area in your brain.
i would love to see this guys blood work!! He takes so much junk a day as he stated in another video that he will eventually fuck up his CNS which will lead to Hypertension and possible stroke. ive taken provigil and nuvigil, the stuff does work and makes u stay awake and ur focus is somewhat better for sure! The downfall is that you will get jittery sweat alot,more, increased anxiety esp when u add coffee or any caffienated drink! The provigil n nuvigil is more appropriate for differential shift workers and as they say, pilots take these all the time which is i guess understandable! As for us regular average workers, stick to cup of coffee and dont exceed 200mg a day and you will be fine!! Just My Opinion! Best Health to All!!
You guys are ignorant. Ask anyone who has taken Meth and Adderall and they will tell you the high is very similar (although meth is obviously much more intense, obviously). I took it for 2.5 years and my brain had become use to the dopamine the adderall produced, so my dopamine levels were depleted after I stopped and I suffered for several years until my brain started producing it again. Trust me, it's not worth it.
k but , before even taking these drugs , before all that , had he tried port forwarding ? if you didnt , u might wanna try . and if still dont work , just restart your router ... still no luck , just contact isp . thank me later .
They're not smart drugs. They're anti-anxiety drugs, that make people with anxiety problems (a lot of whom, will be in denial), feel slightly better.
You might feel a lot sharper. But that's what "normal" is supposed to feel like
It's people with anxiety problems (most of whom are in denial), taking anti-anxiety medication, and then being amazed when they feel a lot better..........................!
It's not turning you into a superhuman. It's taking a sick person, and making them normal
I don't think he took his medication before this interview?, he sounded really clueless speaking to the interviewer about these medications (RX's). I think before he lets any more nonsense blab out of his mouth, he should perhaps consider taking a chemistry or pharmacology course, he will then learn the differences in the compounds and molecule structures of the medication. Further more, A single-entity amphetamine product combining the neutral sulfate salts of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine, with the dextro isomer of amphetamine saccharate and d, l-amphetamine aspartate is what is going to be inside and ADDERALL, "NOT METH."
I took modafinil(200 mg) for 3 consecutive days. It worked fine for two days. I was feeling like I can do anything. That was the best optimistic feeling I ever had in my life. But on the third day. everything turned horrible. My heartbeat was very fast and I thought i'm just going to die and it's my last day. I turned to some blogs and got to know that this drug can cause brain damage and the real mechanism of its working is not known. I almost forgot that I havn't slept for three days. My brain started slowing down. You know, a human, if stay awake for 11 days straight will die. So I was really scared. One week passed and I didn't slept even for one hour. I tried a lot to sleep. Even took sleeping medicines but everything failed. For one week straight I didn't take any sleep. In that time, I developed eyes floaters. Also, sometimes I was unable to speak, as words didn't come to my mind. It was my huge mistake that I took modadinil. Even today after 1 year has passed. I have developed severe anxiety and depression. I can't even remember things. My memory has become very bad. I also have developed dry eyes symptoms. When I try to study, I feel irritated when I do simple problems in math. I also have severe headaches sometimes...........Now I try to fight with anxiety everyday. Sometimes I think that maybe my brain is damaged. Because I don't feel same as I was the person before. I want to get myself back. But it's not possible. However I try to improve my brain health by working out in gym, doing meditation, eating healthy etc.........But one thing I learned form this experience, everything we are and how we feel, is just our brain. Only the consiousness is yours. Consiousness is what makes you, you.
In life, everything has a price, a cost. You may take the risks, but we just don't Know the long term effects on the brain. If nowadays most studens begin to make use of smart drugs, maybe when they get old, degenerative diseases may increase constantly. Alzheimer, maybe others. People often look only to benefits, not much to the potential danger.
As much as I think Adderall has gone over the top, its not meth. Its a different molecule, but much safer. There are long term effects from use as a child and possible cardiovascular problems overtime, but nothing like methamphetamine. Saying that I can see where others might object, it can produce euphoria. Nothing to the level of meth though.
Shit I relate so much with that fuckin education........it's still happening and I actually have nore capacities than some friends that litterally don't understand shit but somehow get higher grades......
I've taken modafinil to help me concentrate over homework and it really helps..but i don't wanna start takin it regularly to be able to focus and fit in the system of our school
