Notes:

  • Meet Jesse
    • Jesse first got started with smart drugs by finding out about Modafinil
    • He enjoyed the Modafinil and if you want to test out smart drugs it’s a good place to start
    • Though it is very powerful
    • People have very different reactions to Modafinil
  • Downsides to Smart Drugs
    • Not all things are zero sum games
    • Some things may have more benefits with very little down sides
  • Best Methods for Improving Brain Performance
    • First take care of the basics
    • The easiest wins are removing toxins from your system
    • This could be crap from your diet, or clean air, or clean water
    • For most the people in the west it comes from a crappy diet
    • Diet, Exercise and Sleep tend to be the main important points
    • High Intensity exercise might be one of the best ways to improve your brain
    • Humans recognize short pay off cycles, but they usually don’t recognize the long term pay off cycles
    • For diet you need to get a lot of green leafy vegetables
    • Everyone says you should be having leafy green vegetables
    • If your great grand parents couldn’t recognize the food you probably shouldn’t eat it
    • With gluten test it out yourself, go gluten free for 30 or 60 days and see how you feel
    • Test out what diets work for you and which don’t
    • Having purpose can be more important than diet
    • Winston Churchill was over weight and ate like crap but he still beat the Nazi’s
  • Brain Training
    • Jesse has tried brain training, he is not a big fan of them but the Jury is still out
    • Dual N Back does have some really good results
    • Chess is one way to improve your brain but I do not recommend it
    • Jesse recommends learning a musical instrument
  • Why or Why Not To Try Brain Drugs
    • There is a lot of categories that can make smart drugs
    • Smart drugs are a good thing for people to be aware of
    • They can actually be protective for your brain
    • As far as improving your brain right now you probably are looking more for caffeine and modafinal
  • First time drugs
    • Fish Oil and Krill oil are a must (I take krill oil my self)
    • Racetams are the granddaddy of the smart drugs
    • Aniracetam is good for brain storming or whiteboarding, it would be good for DJ’s
    • Nicotine Patch
    • Huperzine, Alpha GPC, DMAE, and L-Theanine are some of my favorites
    • I recommend starting with L-Theanine
