Startup founders and business owners are usually willing to take a risk to get ahead in their given industry. When it comes to something like nootropics and smart drugs, it seems like startup founders are jumping on the bandwagon if it can help them to compete in an increasingly competitive world.
Within Silicon Valley nootropics are becoming increasingly popular already. Certain drugs, which we will discuss below, are more popular than others and creating entire industries of their own. Anyone who is trying to get ahead with their business or startup costs can benefit from a bit of knowledge around nootropics and smart drugs.
While combining butter and coffee isn’t necessarily a nootropic, it is an interesting combination that can help you get started with brain enhancement. By making your coffee with butter and MCT oil, it increases the absorption of the caffeine, which helps you to stay productive with your work for longer. The butter and MCT oil are also useful as they are converted to energy within 3 steps rather than 20 (like most sugars). This is a great way to get started especially if you are a bit skittish.
This is where the big boys are starting to play. Modafinil is considered to be one of the most effective and popular nootropics in Silicon Valley. Many studies show modafinil (also known as provigil) is an effective nootropic for maintaining wakefulness and it works comparable to amphetamine based drugs like Adderall. One study on military personnel showed modafinil was as effective as amphetamine after 64 hours of straight working.
There are many different drugs within the family called “racetams”. If you have heard of smart drugs, you may have heard of piracetam (the most popular) , but there are a host of others with different effects. Aniracetam is a little more stimulating, phenylpiracetam is a lot more stimulating, and there are a host of others in between. Either way, this family is useful as it is one of the only memory enhancers within the nootropic selection. As you can imagine, a better memory can help your business by allowing you to recall important trends, actions or opportunities.
This one might come as a shock or surprise to even veteran nootropics users, but tianeptine is a great nootropic. Consider how many times a day entrepreneurs feel stressed and overwhelmed. This can take its toll and impact work negatively. Tianeptine is a non-addictive drug that can help to reduce feelings of anxiety, stress, and even depression. These are all traits should replace with proper leadership characteristics to grow your business. It isn’t really new as there are numerous studies showing the effectiveness of tianeptine for anxiety over the past few decades.
With these four different options, you should be able to overcome just about any shortcoming while you are working on your business. More importantly, you’ll be able to get ahead of the competition through strategic use of nootropics and smart drugs.
There are plenty of people who are competing in any industry where there is money to be made. If you want to stand out above the crowd and shine, it is going to take something special. Just like bodybuilders used creatine and protein powder in the past, you can use smart drugs to take yourself to another level today.
