***********/watch?v=Gvww68q7caE In this video I will discuss How does Modafinil work Currently, Modafinil is believed to work by Increasing the sensitivity of the brain to excitatory neurotransmitters Specifically noradrenaline-which is also known as norepinephrine The effects of noradrenaline on the CNS (central nervous system) include Increased attention, memory, learning and cerebral plasticity Noradrenaline stimulates the sympathetic branch of the nervous system (The accelerator pedal of the CNS) Noradrenaline increases blood glucose, mobilizes fatty acids from fat stores, Increases heart rate, increases blood pressure and inhibits digestive processes These effects lead to increased energy levels While you would expect this to show more cardiovascular system side-effects This does not happen in practice Modafinil interacts with a large number of neurotransmitter systems Yet it rarely interferes with other chemical balances in the body And this is perhaps why it has a lower risk -and number- of potential side effects Modafinil also works by restricting the parts of your brain that make you sluggish or sleepy It does this by decreasing the sensitivity to inhibitory neurotransmitters like GABA 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 (amphetamins) Due to the fact that it also influences histamine levels 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 Modafinil is the main metabolized element from Adrafinil And though both drugs have the same desired result, Adrafinil requires a larger dose for an equal effective strength Adrafinil also targets alpha-1 brain receptors - making them more responsive to noradrenaline But it is not as specific or potent as Modafinil Modafinil is considered an improved version of Adrafinil, but both are still in use Modafinil was initially developed as a treatment for narcolepsy, but Has been found useful for other situations as well - many are off-label Modafinil is considered superior to amphetamine or pemoline The most widely used drugs to treat narcolepsy, hypersomnia and cataplexy Because it has less cardiovascular side effects, less interference with sleep, Fewer psychiatric disturbances and lower addiction potential 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 But the effects of Modafinil project to many different parts of the brain Its mechanism of action is still being clarified and this is why A lot of care must be taken if you will experiment with Modafinil In most situations, I would advise against using Modafinil But I believe many will try it anyway so you might as well be correctly informed In this video you have learned How does Modafinil work If you want to discover things about Modafinil which aren't 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: ***********/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Modafinil
