With all stacks, caution is recommended. Nootropics are powerful, and all brains are different, so combining them may have risks. Always make sure you try out the components individually first to verify that they work as intended for you, and don’t have any unwanted side effects. Beginning with smaller doses and building up to the recommended dosage is a commonly recommended precautionary technique.
Adrafinil is the prodrug of modafinil, which means it metabolizes in the body as modafinil and provides all the same energy and cognitive-enhancing benefits of the original limitless pill; heightened cognitive ability, wakefulness, motivation and laser-sharp focus. Both adrafinil and modafinil have long been beloved favourites of the neurohacking community for their powerful cognitive effects.
However, just like other energy-boosting compounds such as caffeine, adrafinil can serve up some less than desirable side-effects along with its benefits, such as the jitters and occasional headaches.
Enter L-theanine. Just as it does with caffeine, L-theanine will smooth out the edges of your energy boost from adrafinil, promote relaxation and facilitate a calm but focused feeling of wakefulness throughout your day.
Capsules per day: This stack is best taken once per day and early in the morning, so take one capsule of L-theanine and one capsule of adrafinil when you wake up.
Note that both adrafinil and L-theanine can cause a build of tolerance (resulting in diminished effects) if taken daily for more than a couple of weeks. We recommend taking this stack every other day (or 3 – 4 times per week) for optimal results and to avoid tolerance build up.
Effect duration: peak effect at 2 hours, with a duration of up to 5 hours.
