These are from an interesting new vendor that I've vetted, NootropicSpot.com. Check out their site and you'll see a number of Nootropics and performance enhancers that are maybe a bit foreign to you. To me at least these are European exotics, they are all branded and manufactured in either Russia or different European countries. I'll explain a little later why this is appealing to me as veteran Nootropics user.No entries were found
Full disclosure: I have a mutually beneficial relationship with NootropicSpot.com. Almost weekly I am solicited by vendors, manufacturers and marketers of various Biohacking products and 80% of them don't exhibit the basic indicators of credibility of someone I'd like to buy things from that may alter my brain chemistry.
As Biohackers we have a bit of a weak spot for novelty, especially pharmacological novelty, smart drugs that might work a little different than the things we've tried before.
However, pharmacological novelty is not always good and it is not for everyone, amongst Biohackers there's a spectrum of risk tolerance. Similarly, amongst Nootropics and performance enhancers there's a spectrum of risk profiles. Not all Nootropics are equally safe and benign.
A hacker is someone who wants to gain complete control of the system they are dealing with - be it technological or social.
We live in excitingly novel times when we have made quantum leaps in understanding, testing and controlling our own biology. At a time when many of the leading minds in medical science and technology believe that the first immortal human has already been born and you can get your personal DNA genotyped, it is not unrealistic to say that you can have total control over your own biology.
Biohackers have a couple of common goals:
About 30 sessions into my Dual N-Back training practice I realized an interesting personal development take away, that a cognitive psychologist would describe as domain general, meaning that it has transfer effects that influence my life when I'm not playing the Dual N-Back game.
For those you who haven't played Dual N-Back, inevitably you will usually get a match or two (or more if you are just getting started) wrong per block and there are 20 blocks in the recommended 20 minute daily training session. Dual N-Back training is not like the rest of life where you can let you mind wonder or multi-task, the game is designed specifically to take up all your attention focusing on the present. I set HighIQPro to instant feedback mode; if I select an incorrect spacial or audio N-Back match it responds with a harsh negative beep.Add a comment
The Problem: You feel tired and unfocused at times when you need to be productive.
This can be a complicated problem and it is certainly worthy of introspection and self quantification but luckily it's productivity robbing symptom, feeling tired and unfocused, is easy and cheap to fix.
Why is it that some people languish in personal development purgatory for years or decades while other people read a book, take a course, listen to a podcast, apply the knowledge and get meaningful (or profitable!) results fast?
The most practical, measurable and none woo woo answer to this conundrum is that the person who gets more results, faster has a mind with healthier Neuroplasticity mechanisms. Neuroplasticity, is a chemical process that occurs on the molecular and cellular levels of our brain's grey matter, it results in new brain cells being manufactured and synaptic connections forming in the mind.Add a comment
