My Order Of Modafinil Has Arrived – A Review On Modvigil

So today was the day that my order of modafinil has finally arrive in my PO BOX. It has taken almost 2 full months of waiting to get it. Why did it take almost 2 months? The first batch of pills was apparently taken away by the people at customs. It seems to be very common now for the government official to crack down on chemical which the government thinks is unsafe.

So far I have already tried out Phenylpiracetam, Bulletproof Coffee, the supplement to the coffee High Octane Oil, 5-HTP, Alpha Brain from Onnit.com, Grass-feed Butter, Omega-3, Choline, L-Theanine, Centrophenoxine aka Neuro Glow, Creatine (shown to be able to increase IQ a slight bit), Vitamin K2, and a few other supplements to see how well a nootropic stack works. However, it was the Modafinil that has eluded me since there seems to be so much legal issues with this pill. I am also part of a few IRC Channels which talk about this stuff. Get on FreeNode and join the various groups.

This is going to be an experiment I plan to do to show you guys what are the effects of taking what is supposed to be an “intelligence & cognitive enhancement chemical supplement”. Are those Dateline and ABC Specials and segments exaggerating the claims of this drug or are they telling the truth?

Status Reports

Sunday May 11, 2014 – Got up around 11 AM (I sleep late sometimes), Felt groggy since I went to sleep around 4-5 AM , ate a small meal – Ingested Bulletproof Coffee (infused with the High Octane Oil), 5-HTP, Alpha Brain, Omega-3, Centrophenoxine, and Vitamin K2. (I stopped taking Phenylpiracetam because I noticed that it didn’t seem to do anything for me, and seemed to make my tongue numb.)

First time taking Modafinil/Provigil – Did not feel any different, and did not notice anything like a clearer form of awareness or consciousness. Guess it is not supposed to be like a life-altering drug like Ayahuasca. However, what I did notice is that today I worked for 6 hours straight and did not loss focus. Usually I loss focus after just 1-2 hours and my mind start to wander, and I notice hunger signals. Today, I somehow managed to stay focused and did not care about hunger until my stomach started to acted react with pain. That was after 6 hours. Checked my weight and noticed that it had dropped by 1.5 lbs in 6 hours. It is now past 11 PM and I am still able to stay focused.

In terms of productivity I feel like I managed to get about 3X-5X more work done than usual, which is absolutely insane because even after 12 hours later, I still feel like I can keep going with work. Even when I forced myself to stop working and take time off for exercise, my mind drifted back towards wanting to get back to work, so that I can almost “zone out” and go into a state of “flow” as Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi stated. So far, my brain seems to have not slowed down, and my body seems to be going along too. Guess I might work through the night if my brain doesn’t “turn off”.

May 14th: The 2nd time I took the pill and I actually quantified everything I did that day. I increased my productivity to around 2.5X, and chose to take the next day off from intensive mental activities. The effects wasn’t as strong as the first time.

Overall Opinion:

The drug doesn’t make you feel like a different person or give you crystal clear clarity or awareness. The effects are quite subtle. When you are working say in front of the computer, you will be focusing much more and manage to keep your attention on the task without any type of focus breaks.

So many people have been saying that this pill which was formerly used by the US Jet Pilots as a stimulant for sleep issues like narcolepsy is the real life version of the compound NZT-48 seen in the movie Limitless starring Bradley Cooper but I am going to say that the effects are NOT as profound as you might believe. They did have a huge effect, but it is not life altering and increase your IQ by 50 points automatically, as some people may have hoped for. When it is sold on the online giant Amazon’s website, the actual active compound is omniracetam. I have never tried omniracetam before but after trying the phenylpiracetam, I was not impress by the effects, which I did not notice.

So far, the pill does work to make you MUCH more productive at work, assuming that you work in front of a computer, but it doesn’t seem to translate to an increased ability or quality in any other areas of life.

Note: This post is what I plan to write about and update for the next 2-3 weeks (or even longer), as I work on other projects I have. Yes, I am fully aware that I am moving away from the subject of researching the science of height increase but I wanted to include more body and brain hacks than just bone tissue manipulation.

Update #13 – Taking Nootropic Stacks With Phenylpiracetam, Modafinil, and Centrophenoxine – April 1st, 2014

Update #13 – Taking Nootropic Stacks With Phenylpiracetam, Modafinil, and Centrophenoxine – April 1st, 2014

Nootropic StacksThis last month has been a whirlwind of activity in my life as I came back to the USA. Immediately after I came back, I decided to increase my level of focus and effort in building up my businesses as well as increase my cognitive abilities. For a while now, I’ve been getting into looking into what types of compounds are available to increase my cognitive abilities. It is one of my side interests. As we grow older, our bodies do more than just get shorter, but also loss the mental edge as well.

After spending a few days of research, I bought the following compounds & supplements for my brain….

  • Phenylpiracetam – (by LIFTMODE) at 5 gramsBought this from Amazon Here
  • Modafinil – From the website Modup.net – got the 120 pack for 8 weeks at around $160- (Buy it Here)
  • Centrophenoxine – (60 pills at 500 mg each) – From Neuro Glow – Bought it from Amazon here
  • Choline – This is the prevent the headaches that might start from taking the Phenylpiracetam alone – Bought it Here
  • Bulletproof Coffee Pack – The pack includes the 100% C-8 MCT Upgraded Brain Octane Oil – Buy it Here
  • Omega-3 (Triple Strength) – at 1250 mg – Omega-3 has a synergistic effect with Glucosamine Sulfate to decrease inflammations – Bought it Here
  • Vitamin K2 (MK-7 Version) – 100 mcg per pill – This is supposed to be able to reserve small cavities – Bought it Here
  • Creatine 4200 from MET-Rx at 120 pills – Creatine has been shown to actually increase IQ by upwards of even 15 points – Got it Here

A Few Important Notes:

  • To do the Bulletproof Coffee taking the right way, combine it with a piece of Grass Fed Butter.
  • For the Phenylpiracetam, it will come with a blue and a white scoop spoon. The white spoon filled to the brim using the crystal type will be approximately 100 mg, which is the recommended dosage for people starting out.
  • Put the crystals under your tongue, sublingually, NOT on top of your tongue. It is bitter and your saliva does often build up.

The Modafinil I bought from Modup.net hasn’t arrived yet but I sort of expected it since that shipment requires a lot of time. Some people have said that customs have taken them before so I am not going to get too upset if the Modafinil never arrives and I get some note in my PO Box saying that they took it away because it is some type of dangerous substance, which it is not.

Short Review On The PhenylPiracetam: It is not as good as I hoped, and it did not give me any type of headache so the Choline was not really needed. It took me a while to find Choline in the local drugstores and even the pharmacist behind the counter did not know what Choline was. Don’t go to the local drugstore because they are not going to have it. I tried. Get it online. It is surprising since most people have heard of one of the neurotransmitters known as Acetylcholine, which is just choline with an Acetyl chain attached to it. My brain seemed to work better with the Bulletproof Coffee with the C-8 MCT, combined with Omega-3 and the Centrophenoxine. That is sort of expected since the phenylpiracetam doesn’t work on everyone. I guess my brain chemistry is just different. Based on the fact on how the blood-brain barrier is so secure to prevent things from getting into the brain and the CSF (Cerebral Spinal Fluid), I am not sure if it is even possible for the piracetam molecule to get through the brain-blood barrier.

In addition, I have also started to rewire my brain using a different way to type. I’ve gotten into learning to type on my Apple Macbook Air in a different way to make me faster and have less typing mistakes. I’ve now bought the Dvorak Keyboard Cover for my Macbook Air from Amazon. It took me about 5 days to retrain my brain to type differently. The process is still quite slow…

Weight Changes: As for my weight, I’ve dropped from over 210 down to about 199 in a matter of 2 weeks. I completely cut out carbohydrates from my diet. I sold my car the last time I left the USA so I bought a Diamondback Bike (21 speed), and now every day ride the bike to the local Whole Foods for every meal to get some eggs, chicken, ham, and beans for my meals. My friend has also been getting me into doing these 7 mile runs late at night which has been very painful.

Health: The exercise and lifestyle changes have been wonderful but I’ve combined it all with half a cup of red wine (Pinot Noir) every night. The reservatrol inside the red grapes which are processed with the skin on is what gives the red wine so many heart health benefits. I haven’t checked my blood pressure readings recently but I am sure that it has been helped by the small amount of red wine. In my opinion, the benefits of the alcohol outweigh the problems.

Height Changes: My hair has grown too long for me to make any accurate measurements. I plan to shave my head in a few days so I might be able to tell by then. Once I find a more permanent place to stay in the greater Seattle Area, I will really start to kick the research into gear. Right now, I’m still searching for a place to live, so that is still ongoing.

Updates to the Website: The recent post about Lance Ward and the Ayurvedic Urea has caused a stir. Lance has contacted us and asked that the post be taken down. We have asked that he come on the podcast to explain himself and why he was trying to promote that product so forcefully.

There has been three people I’ve tried to get into contact with to come on the podcast this month

  • Dameon of the forum LimbLengtheningForum.com
  • Niza from Youtube to explain his technique on angular loading for LSJL
  • Lance Ward as a reply to his message to us abut taking down the post (at this time, we did take it down to show that we are willing to be civil)

So far none of them has agreed to come on the podcast for an interview yet, but I will cross my fingers and hope for the best.
