Of course caffeine is one of the best nootropics that you are going to find so it is a good idea to use this in the maximum capacity that you can. This might look different for different people, but whatever the case may be, keep an open mind. You’ll find that your coffee slowly improves over time as you experiment and find the things that go well for your particular brain chemistry. Most people don’t even know what it is they are going to do in the morning let alone how to make their morning coffee amazing!
- Fat source – if you are taking coffee without butter or MCT / coconut oil, the only excuse you could have is that you are fasting! Fat sources with your coffee are going to help to improve the absorption and effect of the caffeine. This is going to help your brain function more efficiently, but it will also be a lot of added calories and breaks any fast you might be engaging in. Whatever the case may be, it is better to break fast with a fat source than nothing.
- Racetams – if you have a fat source, you can use a fat soluble stimulating racetam called aniracetam in your coffee (available here). If you are not, you can just use piracetam or even some of the more advanced racetams like phenylpiracetam. This option is so potent it was banned by the Olympic committee for being too useful in stimulating people.
- Green tea – have anxiety with coffee or just feel like sometimes the coffee is impacting you in a negative way? There is an answer for that. Green tea has an amino acid called L-theanine that brings down heart rate and addresses some of the other side effects of caffeine.
