Modafinil: Drug Like "Limitless" Used to Improve BRAIN Performance! Must READ!

It's Wake Up Time!

I recently watched a movie that's recommended by my boyfriend called "Limitless." In the movie, actor Bradley Cooper took NZT-48, a fictitious drug which basically is an exaggerated version of cognitive enhancers available in drugstores today. It's similar to nootropics that work by modulating the activity of neurotransmitters and neurotrophins (brain growth factors). 

The wonderful thing is that Bradley Cooper transformed from being so lazy and depressed in life into someone who thinks clearly and gets things done so fast. It's like taking the drug made him into a superhuman who has enhanced learning skill and memory recall.


In the real world, I came across a similar drug which works in a lesser degree called Provigil—also known as Modafinil

Modafinil: Biohacking Your Mind

Modafinil must be popular for those who are diagnosed with narcolepsy (a neurological disorder) and ADHD as prescribed by doctors. The science behind this smart drug is that it changes the amounts of certain natural substances in the area of our brain that controls sleep and wakefulness, thereby enhancing our alertness, attention, memory, and executive functions such as planning and problem solving. 

If you feel like a zombie and could not concentrate at work or on studies, if you are new to the BPO industry and your body is not used to working long hours, or if you have problems with daytime sleepiness, then you should think about trying this wakefulness-promoting agent.

Different from Adrafinil, Modafinil is not associated with harmful side effects and is safe. However, taking this medication every day might just develop addiction or the heightened awareness for potential abuse. Just be careful when you use it and how you use it.

Get Extra Focus and Improve Productivity

First time takers of Modafinil claim that it makes you feel fresh and amazing. Euphoria, if you will. This feeling starts to kick in after 30 to 40 minutes of intake and lasts for next 8 to 12 hours. The effect in "Limitless" is over-hyped but nonetheless similar. 


It's like your brain begins to react to everything around you. Alertness skyrockets, thinking and general cognitive abilities speed up (speech and reading). Note though that it's not a magic pill as what's implied in the movie. The initial effect fades as your body becomes used to it. A little bit of caffeine after 4 hours of taking gives it an extended boost and puts you in an active mood.

Where to Purchase Modafinil?

Modafinil is usually available in drugstores with the doctor's prescription, but there are online stores like ModafinilCat that makes the resource available for everyone.

ModafinilCat sells Modalert (Modafinil 200mg manufactured by Sun Pharmaceuticals Ltd. in India), Modvigil (Modafinil 200mg HAB Pharma), and two other kinds of biohacks. What sets them apart from other vendors is that ModafinilCat is pushing the envelope in terms of customer service and ease-of-use. Indeed, many customers testified that ModafinilCat has great and friendly service. Responses are quick and delivery is reliable with e-mail updates on the package's shipping progress.

It's also great to highlight that ModafinilCat is the only Modafinil vendor that accepts VISA and MasterCard payments and BITCOIN while offering full refunds and free international shipping and tracking. Contact them anytime via support@modafinilcat.com.
