*******www.youtube****/watch?v=Kyfx5im4Gfg In this video I will discuss What does Modafinil do In short, Modafinil changes the way the brain reacts to various hormones Modafinil is considered superior to conventional stimulants Because it doesn't affect heart rate, blood pressure And it does not raise anxiety, agitation or promote insomnia Modafinil is believed to lack the side effects of classic stimulants like amphetamins Due to the fact that it also influences histamine levels Modafinil increases histamine release in the hypothalamus  In the brain, histamine lowers susceptibility to convulsion, drug sensitization, Denervation supersensitivity, ischemic lesions and stress Histamine is also involved in sleep regulation And this is why Modafinil users can sleep if they want to  Insomnia is a frequent side effect of amphetamines Not all the effects of histamine are positive Histamine triggers the inflammatory response because It is involved in the local immune response Modafinil is a highly selective agonist of brain alpha-1 adrenergic receptors This means it increases sensitivity to norepinephrine (or noradrenaline ) In other words, The same quantity of norepinephrine will have a greater effect when Modafinil is used GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain Modafinil inhibits the release of GABA, but This normally happens with higher than normal doses Modafinil also increases dopamine release in the brain And affects physiological function in the gut Modafinil produces an appetite reducing/ weight loss effect  Via action on the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) A simplified way to think of the SNS is to view it as the bodies accelerator pedal Modafinil may be very useful for some individuals and a health risk for others Since everyone's brain chemistry is slightly different Reactions with Modafinil can vary greatly among individuals If you wish to try Modafinil you need to start with small doses and Carefully monitor your reactions Long term use of Modafinil - or the earlier version Adrafinil - Should be combined with blood tests and assessment of liver enzymes In summary, Modafinil operates by changing the sensitivity of receptors in the brain to hormones and neurotransmitters By improving the sensitivity to the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, It serves to increase attention and promote wakefulness Yet Modafinil rarely interferes with other chemical balances And this is perhaps why it has a lower risk -and number- of potential side effects In most situations, I would advise against using Modafinil But I believe many will try it anyway so you might as well have an idea of what to expect In this video you have learned What does Modafinil do If you want to discover things about Modafinil which arent included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/ModafinilPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Modafinil
