Introduction

Modafinil* is a very popular smart drug, being used by up to 20% of university students as reported by The Tab.  Nature also confirms that pharmaceutical smart drugs like modafinil have been used by up to 23% of all people in the UK. 

But, modafinil is illegal to sell in the UK, and it can produce some nasty side effects.  So, what sort of alternatives to modafinil can prospective smart drug users try instead? We've prepared a list of alternatives to modafinil you might want to try instead.

Read on for some natural alternatives to Modafinil you might want to try...

Caffeine

Modafinil Alternatives

Caffeine is near-ubiquitous in our society.  Loads of people drink coffee, and for good reason: Caffeine increases alertness levels, wakefulness levels, and may be considered a cognitive enhancer by some (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20182035).

However, too much caffeine can cause problems. You're probably familiar with many of the side effects of caffeine use: jitters, anxiety, increased heart rate and so on.  It's best used in moderation, particularly if you're trying concentrated caffeine pills.

L-Theanine

L-Theanine is another natural nootropic, that works very well in concert with caffeine.  Theanine is an amino acid that may have beneficial properties for your brain and is good for boosting brain power, while also helping with mental clarity and focus.

Importantly, theanine makes you more resistant to the negative effects of caffeine.  A caffeine-theanine mix is perhaps the simplest and most popular nootropic for this reason, improving your wakefulness and cognitive performance without the downsides associated with a triple espresso.

Panax Ginseng

Modafinil Alternatives

Panax ginseng is another widely-used nootropic.  It's a herbal remedy from China, and it has a reputation for stimulating brain function and increasing energy. Ginseng is also believed to regulate glucose levels to the brain, which can in turn help cognitive performance.

Acetyl L-Carnitine

Acetyl L-Carnitine (which can be found in asparagus) is a mitochondrial energy optimizer, that supports energy production at the cellular level.  Moreover, Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an antioxidant that can help mitigate oxidative damage to the brain according to a recent study (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12011-017-1210-0).

Choline

Choline is an important chemical in your brain, because it works in the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Acetylcholine helps regulate mood, intelligence and cognitive processes - and it's frequently taken alongside nootropics, or on its own as a way to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain.
