magnesium is important! studies indicate most of us are deficient ;; also taking multivitamins and extra vitamin c is part of my morning reggie.
l-tyrosine is to dopamine as to l-tryptophan//5-htp is to serotonin (anyone who pre- post-loads 5-HTP for MDMA/serotogenic drugs knows what this means in short)
pretty much, taking l-tyrosine in the morning on an empty stomach “agitates” your brain to start up-regulating dopamine; i haven’t had MY coffee yet so i’m being vague
this kinda helps smooth out the dopamine-drain from drinking coffee and produces a more rounded, confident, less anxious state when combined with morning coffee and a meal. it is a good motivation enhancer and provides you with a dopamine source to feel adequate in completing tasks, talking and socializing, etc. it’s one of the scarce extra ingredients in some energy drinks (RED BULL) but isn’t in any amount that has noticeable effects. it’s also cheap and i buy it from nootropic/supplement websites.
coluracetam is a kick-ass nootropic to have with coffee too
