Adrafinil (Olmifon) For Mental Alertness Without Sleep Loss
Adrafinil is one of a class of drugs called ‘eugeroics’ which means ‘good arousal’. Also known as Olmifon adrafinil, it is a stimulant and anti-depressant supplement that boosts mental alertness without disrupting normal sleep.
Unlike other stimulants, like coffee, Olmifon adrafinil has none of the unpleasant side-effects, such as insomnia or agitation. Instead, it provides increased energy levels and a sense of mental alertness, with an anti-depressant action.
Adrafinil or Olmifon is used in Europe to treat narcolepsy, a condition that causes excessive daytime sleepiness. Adrafinil gives sufferers increased energy levels and also improves mental performance, meaning they are able to focus and concentrate for longer periods.
Adrafinil’s ability to provide arousal only when required means that it has none of the unpleasant side effects of other stimulants. The benefits of the drug build up over a period of time, giving a more subtle, gentle boost. Adrafinil side effects are, in fact, almost completely non-existent.
How Does Adrafinil Work?
Adrafinil/Olmifon works in a different way to conventional stimulants, by selectively stimulating adrenergic receptors in the brain. These receptors normally respond to a neurotransmitter called norepinephrine, which is associated with mental alertness, learning and memory.
Other stimulants – ranging from coffee to methamphetamine– stimulate a broader number of brain receptors, including those involving dopamine. This means they often cause unpleasant side effects, such as anxiety, agitation and sleeplessness.
Adrafinil, on the other hand, works only when required, allowing the user to switch off and sleep when desired. It gives you a mental boost when you want it and for as long as you need it, without creating an addiction.
Research into Adrafinil has been relatively slight, but the studies that have been carried out have focused on the mood enhancing effects of the drug on older people. As a result of these studies, Adrafinil is particularly recommended for older people who have trouble staying alert and are experiencing a general decline in mental performance.
What Are The Benefits of Adrafinil?
People taking Adrafinil report increased energy levels and a positive effect on cognitive function, mental clarity, concentration and memory. Following use, normally quiet people are reported to become more talkative, while generally reserved people become more open, and passive people become more active.
Adrafinil or Olmifon is a much gentler stimulant than most and requires time to take effect – usually between 45 minutes to an hour.
The benefits also build up gradually over a period of days. It has a very subtle effect, and a common comment from users, is they are not aware they are taking a stimulant until they do something that requires greater energy – then it kicks in.
Unlike other well-known stimulants, Adrafinil will not increase your heart rate or blood pressure. It will not bring about some of the more common side effects of other stimulants, such as insomnia, the jitters, euphoria or the eventual ‘crash’ most produce.
How Should I Take Adrafinil/Olmifon?
You can buy Adrafinil Olmifon online from Biogenesis-antiaging.com in quantities of 40 x 300mg tablets. A normal olmifon dosage is one or two 300mg tablets twice a day, but not continuously without liver enzyme blood tests.
There are no adverse side effects from normal dosages of Adrafinil, but very occasionally, it may cause headaches, stomach pains or skin irritations. In some instances, it may cause a sense of inner tension.
If you are intending to use Adrafinil over an extended period, it is advisable to have a liver function test, and to repeat the test after 3 months, and then every 6 months. This is because long-term use may occasionally result in elevated liver enzymes. If any abnormalities are detected, simply lower the dosage or stop using altogether until your liver enzymes return to normal.
Compared to other stimulants, however, Adrafinil has very few disadvantages and plenty of benefits. It boosts vigilance and mental alertness, without any of the negative effects of other drugs. Time to throw away the coffee maker!
