Spring is right around the corner but let me ask you a question. Have you stuck to your New Year’s resolutions? Have any goals been achieved or progress made? You need a boost and you may have heard the following phrase before: It all starts with your mind.
The same way you take supplements for your body, the brain needs supplementation as well. According to a 2014 study done at the University of Illinois, involving over 11,800 adults, it was found that most Americans were not getting the essential nutrients that they need. Only 11.3% of the adults were getting the recommended daily amount of fiber, and just 4.7% were consuming enough potassium. If most people aren’t getting enough nutrition than how do you think this would affect the brain? I would know. I worked a job where I had to use my brain and do physical labor every day. If I didn’t miss the gym that day, I was still fatigued, had brain fog, couldn’t focus & was irritable for the whole day.
My diet was decent but I had to have coffee, an energy drink, and almost a pack of cigarettes every day. Vaping instead didn’t help either.
I also started to get a real “dad bod” with the onset of man breasts starting to develop. What did I do? Taking nootropics started a whole chain reaction that changed my life. I started my blog on how to get rid of man breast and gynecomastia. I quit smoking cold turkey after 12 years of chain smoking.
I’ve made big gains in my physical fitness. Less anxiety & a stronger relationship with my wife. I can actually focus now. I have a better mood and an extreme desire to get things done.
Nootropics is a blanket term since technically, hard drugs are considered nootropics as well. You don’t have to take micro doses of LSD and shrooms like the Silicon Valley guys.
All you need are brain enhancement pills, also known as smart drugs. And I’m talking about herbal nootropics instead of psychedelics. Here are some more reasons you might want to try a dose of brain pills
You’ll be more likely to stick to your exercise routine
Squeezing an intense workout into our hectic lives is hard. With brain pills, you’ll be motivated to step into that gym or take that run.
I recommend trying brain pills, especially when starting a workout regime.
Why does it give you a big motivational boost? Since different brain enhancers contain different ingredients, I can’t speak for all of them. But most contain modafinil, noopept, sulbutimaine, or others which gives you more energy, optimism, and motivation.
You’ll be more likely to stop bad habits & create good ones
After taking brain enhancements, working out, & getting my nutrients, I stopped enjoying smoking.I still had a nicotine addiction but hated the fact that I had a dependency on it. I was tired of all the self-defeating thoughts that came to me when taking a drag.
What did I do? I just quit and it’s the best choice I’ve ever made.It reminded me of the Limitless movie where Bradley Cooper stopped smoking just like that. Although I still had cravings every now and then, I completely stopped. I’m also more aware of what I say, I complain less, & listen to motivational podcasters like Jocko Willink.
Of course it takes some conscious effort, but less effort when you use brain enhancements.
You’ll be in a good mood more consistently.
No matter how hard you try, life won’t always go your way.
When life throws you a curve ball, it’s easy to fall prey to stress & pessimism.
Facing the unexpected with brain enhancements allows you to do it with more calmness, optimism, and situational awareness.
You’ll be less forgetful
We’ve all had moments where we forget something like not buying that thing on the way home for your spouse. Or forgetting to send that important e-mail before the weekend starts.
Many herbal nootropics contain ingredients like Rhodiola Rosea, Bacopa Monnieri, Folic, Acid, Vitamin B-12, Olive Leaf & Green Tea Extract which all improve focus, memory, blood flow to the brain, promote cognitive function, prevents cognitive decline, and gets rid of mental fatigue. These ingredients are just the tip of the iceberg.
You can sit down and read
One thing I’ve noticed is that I could actually sit and down and focus on what I was reading. I also feel like it takes more to get me mentally tired (which rarely happens anymore) than before. I can actually go home and have an energetic attitude whereas before I would hit the sack and put off obligations.
You’ll hate procrastination
Putting things off until tomorrow will start to become tiresome. With nootropics it will hard to stay still and even easier to get things done. I had an extreme need or “itch” to do whatever I could get done today. It’s as if the brain goes into some aggressive self-care mode.
Driving feels better
This one is probably obvious, but it didn’t hit me until it hit me. On my second day of using my nootropics stack, I thought that maybe I grew a tolerance already. That wasn’t the case at all.
I was driving and it was as if I was looking at a movie theater screen full of bright & clear colors. I could see everything that was going on in that screen. I felt a very unnecessary boost in confidence driving, but it would be a huge edge for people who drive for a living. Okay, maybe I exaggerated about the movie theater screen but you get my point.
One final note
If you’re someone who likes to get things done efficiently & needs that extra edge, you might want to try out brain enhancers. There are plenty of sites that can recommend good nootropics with tons of reviews. If taking with other medications, you’ll need to consult your physician.
Brain enhancers may be the final push to change your life, but to get the maximum results, it’s highly recommended to have some sort of exercise regimen as well. Fitness & nootropics complement each other perfectly.

Bio: James Nelson was tired of the daily mental fatigue, the “I-used-to-workout” dad bod, onset of man breasts, getting home & having zombie conversations with the wife, & unhealthy habits like smoking. James decided to become Ray Charles to the B.S. & got back into serious fitness, biohacking with nootropics, & started a full-time online business. Fitness & biohacking has changed his life so much that he created a blog. Although the main topic is for gynecomastia (man boobs), there’s a plethora of men’s fitness & self-improvement info.
