Caffeine Smart Drugs

Unless you live in a cave you're already familiar with the benefits of coffee or tea as a brain driver. We have many names for it: cafe, coffee, espresso, java, mocha. Legend says the coffee bean was discovered by a Sheppard who noticed his goats were particularly frisky after munching on coffee plants.

Caffeine revs up your body by increasing a cellular ATP messenger delaying mental and physical fatigue and ramping up cellular activity.

Caffeine Smart Drug Dose

Caffeine comes as familiar hot coffee, but also can be had cold, as ice tea, green tea, sodas like red bull, and tablet form. No more than 600mg should be taken per day as it becomes toxic in higher doses and provides no additional brain function benefit.

Caffeine Side Effects

Caffeine is generally well tolerated. Potential side effects at high doses include:

  • Palpitations
  • Nervousness, headache, dizziness, and insomnia.
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Anxiety, agitation, jitteriness, tremor
  • Withdrawal headaches
  • Insomnia

Neat Nerdy Facts About Caffeine

  • Stacking caffeine with glucose improves the performance of coffee as a smart drug. So try sweetening your java with glucose crystals (from a vitamin store) instead of sugar.
  • A six oz coffee contains about 100mg of caffeine.
  • Caffeine brain effect follows an upside down U curve i.e. as you take more and more your brain function gets better and better until you hit a best dose, above which your mental function actually gets worse and worse the more caffeine you pile on beyond the ideal.

Where to Buy Caffeine Pills

You can find caffeine nearly everywhere. Caffeine pills have the advantage of sustained release i.e. rather than taking a big hit then dipping, caffeine pills give you a smooth brain ride for hours - you could get the same effect by taking a sip of coffee every 5 minutes.
