I've done some online research into nootropics, but they mostly do nothing. Meth and ADD drugs can help someone focus for a while, but it doesn't increase intelligence.
Here are some things that can have an impact:
*sunlight
*fresh air
*cool room
*ketogenic diet
*exercise
*nutrients (e.g. organ meat, fish)
For supplements, the ones that are healthy are the things already in meat/fish: DHA/DPA, creatine, and taurine. (besides the usual stuff like magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B/D/K)

I'm not even overweight, and I don't eat steak.

nobody who says this actually wants to consider another viewpoint. try getting more sun and see how you feel. if you want research, go websearch for it yourself. (pubmed is a good start)

I'm not wrong about keto, because I said "things that *can* have an impact", not "*will* have". It depends on the person. For some, it can turn their life around, others will notice a small difference, and for yet again others it won't matter. It can have the biggest impact on epileptic people and truly autistic people (not just Jow Forums autism).

Asher Richardson
Asher Richardson

vegetables don't really matter from a carb/keto perspective. and yes, excess carbs are more harmful if there's less physical activity.
once again, in my initial post, notice how I said "can" rather than "will".
people always act way too definitely when talking about keto. you can try keto for a month or two and see if it helps you. if it doesn't and carbs are easier/cheaper for you, then just go back. you don't have to decide for life...

Lincoln Thomas

It's just a fad and useless to include. Why list keto if it 'can' opposed to any other diet? Surly low carb or anti-inflammatory would make more sense for more people so why not those?

Literally just exercise. Jog/run a mile a day. That's all your body needs to boost your brain. The whole reason the brain is slowed down in modern humanity is because blood isn't being pumped properly into the brain. Nutrients aren't being absorbed into the bloodstream. And people aren't getting enough sunlight.

Aaron Long
Aaron Long

a proper ketogenic diet is anti-inflammatory (e.g. look up PKD Hungary), and yeah low-carb can help as well. not sure how that makes keto useless.
getting rid of processed crap is good in almost any diet, so I could've also said that, but I assume most people know that already. (it's just often harder not to eat candy if you're eating carbs already)

^Its a collection of studies and research conducted on nearly every nootropic substance you may encounter.

Personally, I have found nootropics to be quite beneficial. Adrafinil, noopept and L-theanine. Magnesium L Threonate for the memory and Broccoli sprouts for the health.

This nice 45-minute long video which summarizes dozens of studies on the broccoli and analyzes the various benefits.

I do my stretches, drink a glass of milk and go to bed. I make sure to get 8 hours of sleep, no matter what. I don't smoke, but occasionally drink. Last time I got checked the doctor said I was in top shape. I'm a person who tries to live a very quiet life. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone.

I have no problem staying focused when programming. Focusing isn't the issue. I have lots of hobbies out of trying to battle the boredom, but after a few days without any drugs I just get really bored to the point I want to kill myself. I also get really loopy and have random outbursts of rage. No idea what's wrong with me. Isn't there some kind of drug like speed that I can use every day but won't fuck my heart/liver/mind in the process?

user. You must resist this. Find something interesting to do. If you don't have anything right now you should go explore. Look if anything is happening locally. It doesn't matter if you will enjoy the subject matter if you're not a regular. Just having a change of pace is good.
Take up dancing maybe. It's a top tier activity and has entertained humanity for millennia. You'll also find that people who do 'real' dancing (not just movement to edm music) tend to be top tier people.

Cameron Sanders

that sounds like depressive anhedonia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anhedonia) and other mental fucked upness.
the brain self-adjusts to drugs, so they only work a few times, but have the opposite effect when used often.
I'd recommend seeing a psychologist or psychiatrist, but I know from experience they're all retarded as fuck and can only help with trivial shit.
try putting in work to find something that actually matters to you, that you find interesting, and that gives your life purpose. that's what men need, purpose. but good luck finding that.

No its:
*Vitamin D unless you need sunlight for mental health
*Fresh air (Get an air purifier or Chineese evergreens)
*Macro-attaining, sub-caloric diet. Eat plenty of Omega-3 Fats, Low GI Complex carbs and High GI simple carbs, Animal protein

Supplements: Drink a full serving of Casein before you go to sleep for a heavy and slow releasing amount of amino-acids your brain needs. Take caffine pills not coffee because its really acidic. Omega 3 peanut butter.

Jacob Thomas
Jacob Thomas

a large variety of drugs I've tried help reduce these anger problems
When you have problems that appear when you don't take drugs those are often called withdrawal symptoms. If can be any number of things but behavioral changes are common. Taking the drugs solves the withdrawal symptoms. That doesn't mean they're not the source of the problem.
I don't need conventional solutions to my problem
Maybe you don't. I obviously can't say that it will help you. But you're concerned about the effects the drugs have on you. To me it sounds like an alternative to taking them makes more sense.

The way you've phrased this sounds like addiction. It _REQUIRES_ drugs. No other solution is feasible. At that point why even bring it up? The long term issues can't be the only reason.
Consider if you're addicted and are constantly running into withdrawal symptoms because of your very strong will to live healthily.

Sunlight is important. Being a Scandinavian that's obvious. The only reason the vikings managed was because of tradition of drinking fish-liver oil. Rich in vitamin D (you store it in fat).
They'd all have rickets otherwise. Being a reasonably fighting force is just so far from that level of malnutrition.
If we now move indoors the way we have its about as bad.

you don't think mental health impacts cognitive functioning?
n-3 fats are mostly necessary to offset n-6 fats. humans should only eat low amounts of polyunsaturated fat.
the brain doesn't need slow releasing amino-acids during sleep at all. getting protein from meat fulfills all requirements. it looks like eating protein too often can even impair brain function. athletes and bodybuilders take casein before bed to stimulate MPS and gain a little more muscle. it's not a health thing.

Some simple tips that have worked for me:
- Consistent 7-8 hrs sleep. Don't go over 9 hrs, it will ruin your day.
- Find your ideal waking time, mine is 8 AM.
- Two cups of coffee a day max, 6pm as late I will drink. Drink water.
- Have nutritious meals, avoid carb bombs that spike your insulin and make you sleepy (specially if you're a fatty).
- Take a walk by mid-day to refocus out your mind
- Avoid traffic, it's mind numbing and drains your energy. By 6PM I mostly go to take a walk in the park, finish some business and leave by 8PM when traffic has mostly cleared out. Even better would be to bike to work, but I live too far away.

John Morgan

I have done it, when I was working out. If anything, it made me sleep worse because my stomach would be busy processing, making me fall asleep later. I didn't dream differently, and even if I did, I don't think that's necessarily a good thing.

Cooper Sullivan
Cooper Sullivan

I just start working on projects and exercises right away and plan to finish them a day or two before the actual deadline. It's probably less efficient than crunching at the last minute, but I can't sleep at morning when I'm stressed out.
As for improvements in cognition, I use visualize things in my mind and use a pocket notebook and loose sheets of note taking paper as extended working memory. Writing by hand leaves a stronger trace in memory than typing does.
I avoid carbohydrates and prefer (loose) tea over coffee when not having breakfast, because fast-acting energy sources and stimulants cause a decline in performance after a period of hyperactivity. Eat properly every day and avoid junk food and soda. It helps to live in a country with cheap and balanced student meals.
5 km or an hour of walking a day at minimum. My head starts aching when I've skipped exercise.

Absolutely not. Keto retards are known for eating dumb shit repetitively with no shame. Bacon, steak, eggs. There's nothing wrong with good carbs, even above the level you drop and stay in ketosis. Everyone is different, keto is an absolute fad that will fade away and too many people treat it as some kind of miracle cure for ailments across the board. Placebo is strong.

I would add one thing that I think will become increasingly important - limiting time spent on distractions such as social media, phones etc. This is easily the one I struggle with the most since they are the easiest outlet ever when you're stressed about something.
