What is Adrafinil?

Adrafinil is a synthetic nootropic compound and is a precursor drug to modafinil, which
Means adrafinil is metabolized in the body to produce modafinil, meaning supplementation of adrafinil leads to increased concentrations of modafinil in the body. Both are stimulants with no amphetamine-like effects.

Lafon Labs developed Adrafinil in the 1970s and it quickly became widely used in many European countries to improve wakefulness and for conditions that negatively impact the ability to stay awake. Now Adrafinil is more commonly recognized for its use as a mild stimulant; however, it does not function like your typical energy booster. Rather than causing hyperactivity, Adrafinil helps your body fight fatigue. It is much gentler than standard stimulants as it lacks most of the common side effects.

Benefits of Adrafinil

Aside from enhancing energy, Adrafinil has also been shown to improve cognitive function through an increase in mental focus, concentration, and memory. The beauty of Adrafinil’s effects is that it is able to fight off fatigue without the negative jittery effects common to most stimulants. Quiet and reserved users have also reported feeling more open and talkative when taking Adrafinil .

Adrafinil’s effects might not be immediately noticeable, as they typically build subtly over a period of several days to a few months. This is because Adrafinil selectively stimulates l-adrenergic receptors in the brain. Other stimulants affect a wide range of receptors in the brain leading to possible over stimulation. This is likely why Adrafinil typically has fewer negative side effects .

Adrafinil Dosage

The recommended dosage is one scant 1/8tsp scoop (300mg) once daily as needed.

Since Adrafinil is metabolized by the liver, you may wish to supplement it with milk thistle to help minimize the impact on your liver from use.

Side effect of Adrafinil

There have also been a number of relatively mild side effects reported to result from Adrafinil use. These include headache, dizziness, nausea, and stomach discomfort. Most of the time, these occur only when the supplement is used in high doses. Headaches are normally solved by taking a Choline supplement such as Alpha GPC. The others should be dealt with by reducing the dosage and possibly taking a short break from the supplement. If these symptoms persist, you may want to try a different nootropic supplement or stack in the place of Adrafinil.
