Okay, you got me. That’s not a real quote. It’s not even a real person. It’s a parody of the famous quote about serving your country made by John F. Kennedy in 1961. Whether you love him, hate him, or don’t even know who he is, one thing is certain: If JFK was alive today, he’d almost definitely be using nootropics.

How do I know that he’d be using them? Because people at the top levels of every field are using nootropics, including politics. Though their official medical records are confidential, President Trump and President Obama have both been rumored to be taking cognition-enhancing drugs.

It’s obvious why top-level politicians and other high-powered professionals use nootropics. Competition is fierce and in order to be successful, you need every advantage you can get. But most of us aren’t presidents, CEOs, award-winning journalists, or professional athletes. So, should we use nootropics? Do they have anything to offer the average person?

In a word: yes. Whether you’re the CEO of a Fortune 500 company or a janitor that works for the company, nootropics have something to offer you. Whether you’re a struggling college Freshman or one of his/her tenured professors, nootropics can help you. Whether you’re… You get the point.

Nootropics have something to offer just about everyone. That’s what this post is all about: What nootropics can do for you.

Improve academic performance

College can be a real struggle. Between all the hours of reading, the nightly homework, midterms, finals, and of course actually showing up and participating in class, it’s a lot to manage for even the most dedicated of students. That’s why drugs like Adderall are so popular on campuses all over the United States. But most students are aware of Adderall’s long list of dangerous side effects and stay away from it. Instead, they look for substances that provide similar benefits without all the unwanted side effects. That’s where nootropics come in.

Over the past ten-or-so years, nootropic use among college students has grown immensely. Modafinil is one of the most popular nootropics being used on campuses around the world. Students find that it especially helps them in two areas:

First, for pulling all-nighters. Staying up all night before midterms, finals, presentations, and other important projects is a long-standing college tradition. Modafinil helps students to stay awake, alert, and focused on the task at hand.

Second, students use modafinil to help wake them up on mornings when they have early classes. I remember one semester in particular when I was in college. I needed to take statistics and the only class I could get into was at 7AM. Now, I’m not a morning person and never have been. Getting to that class, which met three times a week, was a nightmare. This was before I knew about nootropics so I used the only thing that was available at the time: caffeine and lots of it. By the time I got to class, I’d be wide awake from all the coffee, but I’d be shaky, anxious, and overstimulated. If only I’d known about modafinil or about stacking l-theanine with caffeine to cancel out its negative effects.

Nootropics can help to give students the edge they need to succeed in school. With so many constant distractions all around us, it’s getting harder and harder to stay focused in today’s world. But focus is exactly what students need to be successful. Countless students have used nootropics that help them find success and you can, too. Here are a few of the nootropics that are being used to improve academic performance:

  • Modafinil
  • Caffeine and L-Theanine
  • Phenylpiracetam
  • Aniracetam

Improve performance at work

Work is, well, work. Some jobs are physically strenuous, some are mentally strenuous, and many are both. Competition for advancement can be fierce. Everyone wants to be promoted, to make more money, and to gain the respect of their peers. This often requires working long hours, bringing work home with you, and making other significant sacrifices.

Nootropics can help you to perform better at work. Maybe you’ve got a big project you’ve been working on and need to come in early and stay late. Modafinil can help keep you feeling alert and awake first thing in the morning all the way until you finish that project hours after you’d normally leave work.

Some professionals prefer to use another nootropic that is very similar to modafinil: armodafinil. It’s slightly more potent and its effects last even longer. Armodafinil will keep you feeling alert, awake, and as sharp-as-a-tack all day long. Or if you and your fellow employees need to pull an all-nighter, it’ll keep you feeling fresh and alert all night. Here are some of the nootropics being used by professionals to improve work performance:

  • Modafinil
  • Armodafinil
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Sulbutiamine

Improve performance at home

Maybe you’ve been putting off getting stuff done: yard work, house cleaning, doing your taxes, etc. Maybe your to-do list is longer than War and Peace. Maybe you could benefit from taking a nootropic or two.

Improve social performance

This is something that more and more people are using nootropics for. Never in history have we all been so connected yet, at the same time, we’ve never been so far apart. As people become increasingly glued to their electronic devices, they spend less and less time actually interacting with others. This results in a lot of social anxiety, making it hard for people to connect in the real world.

Improving social performance often leads to improved work and school performance. If you’re too anxious to focus on your work, you can’t give it one-hundred percent of your attention. Using nootropics to help you feel more confident in social situations makes it easier to get stuff done at work, make presentations, throw out new ideas, and a variety of other things. Here are some of the popular nootropics being used to improve social performance:
