Do Nootropics Work?

WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS 

Nootropics work. They have a long history of use. In the future, we believe nootropics will be like coffee. Everyone will be using them. Just like coffee, nootropics affect people differently.  We think if you experiment and find the right nootropic for you, it can be life changing. Literally. We're not kidding. We're kicking off this series with a little intro to Nootropics. Here goes...

HISTORY OF NOOTROPICS

586 BC- Patna, India – Alone in the wilderness, a healer bends down in front of an herb with white flowers covering it to harvest some of the precious medicine called bacopa monnieri. The old man then places it into his basket on top of some roots called ashwagandha and starts to walk home to prepare the medicine for improving people’s memory and overall cognitive function.

347 BC- Chengzhou, China- King Xian of Zhou smiles inwardly at the earthy taste of his green tea infused with ginko biloba that he drinks every morning to keep him focused yet calm and his mind sharp to better manage his kingdom.

793 AD- Lindisfarne, Northumbria- As the Vikings prepare to beach their longships and begin for their raid on the monastery, a few of the men can be seen chewing on a root of the adaptogenic herb rhodiola rosea to increase their endurance, strength and boost their ability to focus on the approaching battle.

2017- Silicon Valley- Inside a dimly lit office, in the middle of the night, a lone soul types away at his keyboard. This entrepreneur has been working all night trying to complete a project that will take his software company to the next level. He has been awake for over 24 hours using modafinil to keep him awake and focused and aniracetam to keep his cognitive abilities operating at peak levels.

It is hard to say exactly how long nootropics have actually been in use.  We do have accounts that they have been used in some form or another since the beginning of modern civilization.  People have been using caffeine, herbs, and mushrooms to affect their cognitive abilities and mood for a very long time.  The more recent compounds like piracetam, which was the first in the family of racetams, was first created in 1964, and became available in the early 1970’s.  Other things like modafinil and andrafinil were first created back in the 1960’s but did not start to be used as nootropics until the 1990’s.

We can say that for thousands of years, humans have been using plants, mushrooms and other substances to improve the functioning of their body and mind. I think this alone makes a very strong case for what we today call nootropics.

Welcome to the ancient and also cutting edge of nootropics!

WHAT ARE NOOTROPICS?

Nootropics (/noʊ.əˈtrɒpɨks/ noh-ə-trop-iks)—also called smart drugs, memory enhancers, neuro enhancers, cognitive enhancers, and intelligence enhancers-are drugs, supplements, nutraceuticals, and functional foods that improve one or more aspects of mental function.  Specific effects can include improvements to working memory, motivation, or attention.  The word nootropic was coined in 1972 by a Romanian psychologist and chemist, Corneilu E. Giurgea, from the Greek words νους nous, or “mind”, and τρέπειν trepein meaning to bend or turn.[1]  To hear it pronounced, click here.  According to Dr. Giurgea, nootropics should have the following characteristics:

  • Little to no side effects and low toxicity
  • Enhance learning and memory
  • Protect the brain against physical and chemical injuries
  • Enhance resistance to conditions that disrupt learner behaviors
  • Nootropics run the spectrum from substances most of us use every day to readily available supplements to readily available supplements to harder to obtain supplements and even prescription and illegal drugs.

DO NOOTROPICS WORK?

Absolutely!

Many Nootropics have been used safely and effectively for thousands of years.

It is our experience talking with many people who have used nootropics and our own experience using these that they absolutely work!

Some people are quite skeptical when they are first introduced to nootropics.  Not all nootropics will work for everyone, and some lose their effect over time if they are used continuously or often. Just like 200mg of Tylenol doesn’t work for everyone and not every prescription will work for you, nootropics are the same way.

You may have to experiment and try different supplements and different combinations to find what works best for you.

You also may not feel the effects right away.  Some nootropics take four hours to begin working while others may take a week or two to start having noticeable effects because they have to build up in your body.  I’m not saying that they will do things like in the movie and tv show Limitless or like in the movie Lucy.  That is science fiction and to my knowledge there doesn’t exist anything that even approaches that level.  They will however have noticeable effects on your memory, attention, alertness, focus, mood and anxiety.

I have been experimenting with them for a few years now and can undoubtedly say they work.

If you want a little extra boost getting to work writing a chapter in your book, creating an important presentation, getting on stage in front of 100s of people, cranking out a blog post, rapidly learning a new skill, or just having an extra edge on your work colleagues then you might want to explore nootropics a bit further.

HOW DO NOOTROPICS WORK?

In layman’s terms, they work by changing the levels of certain chemicals in the brain and also the way those chemicals interact with each other, modulating neuronal metabolism, cerebral oxygenation, and neurotransmitter availability.  The exact method of effect will depend on the specific nootropic.

The brain is filled with neurotransmitters.  They are responsible for focus, memory, learning, mood, anxiety, motivation, appetite, pleasure, pain, libido, just to name a few.  Brain chemistry is very complex and we are only starting to scratch the surface of how it actually works.  We do know, however, that we can change the amount of neurotransmitters in the brain, and that will lead to changes in the way feel, think and act.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS INVOLVED WITH NOOTROPICS?

Most nootropics are known to be very safe. Many are considered supplements, and some are even everyday foods for most of us that have been used for millennia (like the caffeine in coffee and L-theanine in tea). Others are prescription drugs in some countries but not in Canada or the US and can be purchased over the counter. Other smart drugs may be prescription based or have addictive or other qualities that the user must know about and understand before deciding whether or not to try out. And finally, there is a class of nootropics considered illegal substances, at least in the US.

Everyone’s body and brain is different, so there is no guarantee that you won’t have an adverse reaction to a compound, even if other people have reported no problems.

Chances of an adverse reaction can increase when mixing different compounds together in what is called a “stack” (more on stacks later).  The risk of most normal stacks is very slim.

The possibility of addiction is only a concern when using specific stimulant type compounds, but a very large body of research on the therapeutic use of the “more addictive” psychostimulants indicate that addiction is fairly rare in therapeutic doses.

Some nootropics may have a negative effect on other supplements or prescription drugs.  If you aren’t sure, do your research and speak to your preferred health advisor.

It is not advisable for children or young adults to use nootropics, especially the chemical and lab manufactured ones.  Our brains are not fully developed until around the age of 25, so the use of nootropics may have a negative impact on the complete development of someone’s brain.  It is much more important to make sure you are getting adequate sleep, exercise and a nutrient dense diet.  That alone will help you much more than nootropics.

WHO USES NOOTROPICS AND WHY?

People from all walks of life use nootropics today.  From top level CEOS, professional athletes, college students, all the way down to the normal person just wanting a little edge.  Other people that are showing signs of cognitive decline like Alzheimer’s and dementia use them to try to slow or reverse the process. Some people that have anxiety or mood disorders also use them to help lessen some of these symptoms. Here is a short list of things people use them for:

  • Increase attention focus, concentration, and alertness
  • Improve memory, learning, mood and overall cognitive function
  • Treat age-related cognitive decline, brain injuries, and brain fog
  • Increase creativity, logical thinking and problem solving

HOW TO USE NOOTROPICS

Before you start using any supplement, you need to know how to make sure it’s working for you. This means getting a baseline level before you start taking them and then tracking the effects regularly.

Everyone’s body chemistry is different. This is especially important with nootropics. You may not notice that a certain nootropic is working, even though it may be having a very strong effect on your cognitive function.

A lot of people have a hard time with nootropics because they don’t pay enough attention. Some people have a hard time knowing what works and what doesn’t. That’s why some of the stacks are really problematic. Nobody knows what exactly in the blend is causing them to have positive results.

What works well for me may not work as well for you.  Things that have no effect on me may be the thing that really gets your brain humming at high speed.

One reason for this is that our brains all produce different levels of certain neurotransmitters. For example- I use a choline source with all of my stacks because it helps to tie them all together and increases the amount of acetylcholine that my brain produces.  One of my good friends only supplements with a choline source a few times a week because if he uses it every day, he gets a slight headache and tension in his jaw.  This is because he is acetylcholine dominant.  His brain produces quite a bit of acetylcholine so that when he supplements with it, it becomes too much for him and can have some side effects.

Tracking

This is why it is so important to track your usage and the effect of the things you are trying.

Here are some things that you can use.

Journaling is a good way to track changes in your physical, mental and emotional states. Its also great to have a reference to look back at.

Track My Stack- This a tool I use to track what I am taking on which days. I find this very effective at comparing data on certain days that I felt better or worse than normal. It also has a journal function to record how you are feeling each day. You can also see what is working well for other people.

Cambridge Brain Sciences & Quantified Mind –These are two resources to track the actual cognitive effects you are experiencing. You can track many different aspects of cognitive function with these like:

  • Reaction Time
  • Verbal Learning
  • Visual Perception
  • Memory
  • Reasoning
  • Attention
  • Many More

Mercury App- You can use this to track how you are feeling and your emotions. This is especially important because many of the neurotransmitters affected by nootropics are also related to your mood and emotions.

Stay Away From Addictive Substances

Some nootropics are very powerful.

The most important thing that I can say here is to steer clear of Adderall and any ADHD type pharmaceuticals.

Adderal is the go-to choice for a lot of students cramming for a test. The problem with this is that it only gives you a perceived effect of cognitive enhancement. You only think you are doing better, but it actually can hurt your cognitive performance. A study from the University of Pennsylvania had this to say:

“The research team tested 47 subjects, all in their twenties, all without a diagnosis of ADHD, on a variety of cognitive functions, from working memory — how much information they could keep in mind and manipulate — to raw intelligence, to memories for specific events and faces. Each subject was tested both while on Adderall and on a placebo; in each condition, the subjects didn’t know which kind of pill they were receiving."

The researchers did come up with one significant finding. The last question they asked their subjects was: “How and how much did the pill influence your performance on today’s tests?” Those subjects who had been given Adderall were significantly more likely to report that the pill had caused them to do a better job on the tasks they’d been given, even though their performance did not show an improvement over that of those who had taken the placebo.”

It can also be extremely addictive.

Other stimulants like caffeine can have some negative effects as well. The best way I have found to lower the chances of experiencing these are to cycle on and off. The way I do it is to drink caffeinated coffee for 2 or 3 days, then go with decaf for a day.

Some of the popular nootropics that should be cycled because of either physical and mental attachment or tolerance build up are:

  • Caffeine
  • Rhodiola Rosea
  • Phenibut
  • Phenylpiracetam

DIFFERENT TYPES OF NOOTROPICS

NATURAL NOOTROPICS - PLANTS FOR YOUR BRAIN

1442 AD- Cusco, Peru- A shaman awakens with all of the glory of the rising sun and sets out to start his day. Part of his morning ritual after meeting Inti (the sun god) is to prepare his morning tea composed of maca root and yerba mate. This helps him to keep his energy up throughout the day and also to make sure he is thinking clearly as he guides people through the journey of life.

236 AD- Kyoto, Japan- A young man bends down to look at something growing from the bottom of a fallen tree. It’s a mushroom of some sort with white stringy hairs coming off of it. He smiles with delight as he harvests the yamabushitake, otherwise known as the lion’s mane mushroom. As he heads home he smiles as he knows that it will help to heal his mother’s cognitive impairments as a result of a fall she took last month.

Humans have most likely been using plants to enhance and treat problems with their brains since we emerged from the stone age. We as a species have come a long way since the days of trying different combinations of plants to decipher their positive qualities. Whether you look at more recent scientific studies or at ancient texts of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine we can see that we have been studying these plants for thousands of years and learn more every year.

Here are some of the most popular natural nootropics people use in an attempt to either optimize their brain function or to try to overcome some type of cognitive issue. Most of these plants are adaptogenic which help the body adapt to stress by improving the health of your adrenal glands and help to normalize our bodily processes.

Before you start reading this, ask yourself what you are trying to gain by taking nootropics. Is it more focus, better memory or are you trying to compensate for some type of cognitive decline caused by an injury, old age or just an ongoing issue you had had with cognitive function.

This will make it easier to skim through the information and find what we think we will be of most benefit to you. Just remember, WE ARE NOT doctors. WE ARE BIOHACKERS. These are things that have been shown by either scientific studies, citizen scientists or by our own experiments to have very positive effects on cognitive function.

Happy brain hacking. 

mucuna nootropics

Mucuna Pruriens

Cognitive Benefits of Mucuna

  • Neuroprotective properties [r]
  • Reduces stress [r]
  • Helps to regulate hormone levels [r]
  • May help those suffering from Parkinson’s disease [r] [r]

Mucuna is a climbing shrub that is native to tropical regions of African and Asia. It is a legume that has a wide range of medicinal uses. Traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and also in tribal cultures throughout Africa, mucuna can have many benefits to help regulate neurotransmitters in the brain as well as many other things.

Many of the nootropic properties of mucuna are because it is a natural source of L-DOPA which is an amino acid that converts in to dopamine. Dopamine is one of the “feel good” chemicals in the brain which can be taxed by a number of contributing factors like stress, environmental toxins and drugs.

It is also a source of serotonin and 5-HTP which are very important to our brains.

It has even been shown that it may be more helpful than L-DOPA drugs for people suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

Additional Benefits of Mucuna

  • Increased fertility in men 
  • Increase growth hormone [r]
  • Supports kidney and adrenal health
  • Regulate blood sugar [r]
  • Aphrodisiac [r] [r]

Mucuna Dosage

The dosage of mucuna all depends on the strength of the extract. Our favorite nootropic stack, Qualia, for example, uses an extract which is 98% L-Dopa and the dose is 100mg. On the other hand, Lost Empire Herbs’ extract is 15.76% L-Dopa and their recommended dosage is 1 gram or ¼ teaspoon.

Side Effects of Mucuna

Mucuna is very low in known side effects but there are some situations where people should be careful.

  • Can lower blood pressure so don’t use in conjunction with blood thinners
  • Because of the L-Dopa, be careful or avoid using with anti-anxiety or anti-depressant medication
  • Like most nootropics I recommend cycling on and off.

My Experience with Mucuna

I have used mucuna on and off for a few years now. I really enjoy the stress-reducing qualities of it. I have also started to add it to my preworkout shake and have noticed that I see to get a little extra boost when trying to get that last rep in.

Displaying bacopa nootropics.jpg

Bacopa Monnieri

Cognitive Benefits of Bacopa

  • Improves memory recall [r]
  • Reduces stress and anxiety. [r]
  • Neuroprotective, protects against oxidative damage and mineral buildup [r]
  • Could improve symptoms associated with dementia, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy [r]
  • Increases the number of certain neurotransmitters like acetylcholine, dopamine and serotonin [r]
  • Increases blood flow to the brain which leads to increased oxygen, fuel, nutrients and helps to remove toxins. May even lower the chances of a stroke. [r]
  • Adaptogenic [r]

Bacopa is one of the most thoroughly studied and tested natural nootropic.  It is also one of the safest and most effective natural memory enhancers.  It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries as a memory booster and stress relieving herb.

Bacopa Dosage

Bacopa can be purchased in capsules or as powder.  Capsules are the easiest way to take bacopa because you don’t have to worry about measuring your dose.  If you do decide to buy it in powder form, you can make your own capsules or just add it to a smoothie or coffee. The standard dose depends on the concentration of your supplement.

Standard dose depends on the concentration:

50% bacosides-300mg

20% bacosides-750mg

Bacopa Side Effects

Side effects are very rare but could include nausea and fatigue.

Additional Benefits of Bacopa

  • Reduced sensitivity to pain and anti-inflammatory [r]
  • Protection against stomach ulcers [r]
  • Powerful antioxidant properties [r]

My Experience with Bacopa

Along with a higher pain threshold, I’ve noticed a greater tolerance to the cold while using bacopa. I haven’t seen any studies on this but have noticed it multiple times myself. I also notice a large increase in verbal recall while I am speaking in front of a crowd. This may also have something to do with the stress reducing properties.

Displaying lions mane nootropics.jpg

Lion’s Mane – Hericium Erinaceus

Cognitive Benefits of Lion’s Mane

  • Reduces anxiety, stress and has anti-depressant properties [r]
  • Stimulates myelination (production of the myelin sheath) [r]
  • Helps repair the brain from physical damage [r] [r] [r]
  • Neuroprotective and increases nerve growth factors [r]
  • May slow or help prevent Alzheimer’s, dementia and age-related cognitive decline [r]

Lion’s mane is an edible mushroom traditionally used in Chinese and Japanese medicine to improve brain function and support immune system function. It was also used as a meat replacement to help people eat less meat. It gets its name from the stringy texture that resembles the mane of a lion.

Lion’s Mane Dosage

Up to 3 times daily

Extract at a strength of 30% polysaccharide

If using raw powder, I use up to a tablespoon.

Lion’s Mane Side Effects

No known side effects.

Additional Benefits of Lion’s Mane

  • Boosts immune system
  • Anti-fatigue [r]
  • 20% protein by volume
  • Aids in healing when applied topically [r]
  • Anti-inflammatory [r]
  • May inhibit weight gain [r]

My Experience with Lion’s Mane

Lion’s mane is one of my favorite nootropics of all time. I started taking it a few years ago to fix some of the damage caused by multiple concussions that I had sustained throughout my life. I have found that not only has it helped to repair my brain and allow me to think better, it has increased my ability to pull those words and thoughts out of my head that used to seem to be right on the tip of my tongue but more often than not eluded me. It has been especially useful during writing sessions by helping me really get what’s on my mind out on to the paper. I take this almost every day by adding it to my coffee or taking it in a capsule. You can also cook it up. Tastes a little like steak.

Displaying coffee caffeine nootropics.jpgCaffeine

Nootropic Benefits of Caffeine

  • Increases alertness [r]
  • Improves concentration [r]
  • Decreases fatigue [r]
  • Boosts mood [r]
  • Improves short-term memory [r]
  • Improves athletic performance [r]

Around 90% of the world’s population uses some sort of caffeine whether it’s from coffee, tea, soda or in supplements. It is definitely the world’s favorite and most used nootropic. It may be the longest used one as well. I prefer my caffeine in coffee or tea. Check out why My Coffee Is Better Than Yours

Caffeine Dosage

  • 50mg caffeine anhydrous
  • 100mg caffeine citrate

If you decide to get you caffeine from supplement form instead of from coffee or tea, you will mainly find it in the two forms listed above. Caffeine anhydrous is the standard form. The other form, caffeine citrate takes effect much faster but requires a higher dosage.

Caffeine Side Effects

  • Anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Increased blood pressure

A lot of your risks of these side effects are associated with genetics. If you do experience some of these, don’t worry. There is a great way to lessen some of the negative effects. You’ll find out what that is with the next nootropic we are featuring.

Additional Benefits of Caffeine

  • Improves athletic performance [r]
  • Decrease negative side effects of sleep deprivation [r]
  • Boosts thermogenesis which can help you lose weight

My Experience with Caffeine

I love my morning coffee. If you want to know why, check out My Coffee is Better Than Yours I drink coffee most days of the week but I am cautious to cycle off of it every once in a while to give my adrenals a break and with any stimulant to make sure that I do not become addicted.

Displaying green tea l-theanine nootropics.jpg

L-Theanine

Nootropic Benefits of L-Theanine

  • Counteracts negative effects of caffeine [r]
  • Works synergistically to boost mood and cognitive performance [r] 
  • Reduces physical and mental stress [r]
  • Helps you relax and enjoy a more restful sleep [r]
  • Reduces anxiety 
  • Enhances attention and focus 
  • Improves memory 

L-theanine is the main psychoactive compound found in green tea. It wasn’t discovered as a compound until 1949 even though people have known about the beneficial properties of it for thousands of years.

L-Theanine Dosage

Standard dose is 100-200mg up to twice daily.

L-Theanine Side Effects

No known side effects unless taken in very large amounts.

Additional Benefits of L-Theanine

  • Boosts’s the body’s immune response to infection [r]
  • Promotes healthy blood pressure levels [r]

My Experience With L-Theanine

L-theanine and caffeine are one of my favorite combinations for a relaxed focus. If I’m reading to listening to something that I am really trying to absorb and there are distractions around it’s much easier to tune out those distractions. Having 4 young boy’s has made distractions a HUGE part of every day so anything that helps with that is great.

It also helps to keep me present and more engaged when I’m just hanging out with the family or playing with the kids. Not distracted thinking about work that I need to get done or any of life’s other stresses.

rhodiola nootropics

Rhodiola Rosea

Nootropic Benefits of Rhodiola

  • Helps reduce anxiety
  • Combats mental fatigue stress and anxiety [r] [r]
  • Short-term memory improvements and concentration [r]
  • Increased mental work capacity [r]
  • Improves depression [r]
  • Improves visual reaction time

 

Rhodiola Dosage

Using a standardized dose of 2-3% rosavin and .8-1% salidroside, the low end of dosage is around 50mg as a preventative for fatigue. To see more pronounced effects, a dosage of 288-680mg is used.

Rhodiola Side Effects

While side effects are rare, there are a few things to watch out for. The largest issue I have found with using Rhodiola is that it is a mild stimulant so if taken later in the day it may have negatively effect the quality of your sleep. You can also develop a tolerance to rhodiola, so cycling is highly recommended. Other potential side effects include:

  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth

Additional Benefits of Rhodiola

  • Helps combat physical fatigue [r]
  • Anti-aging benefits and helps promote longevity [r]

My Experience with Rhodiola

I have found this great to use when I really need to concentrate on finishing a project that requires long periods of acute focus. It gives me a very calm focus to stay on task.

Because of the mild stimulant effect of Rhodiola, I have found it of great use during those times that I cycle off of caffeine. I usually do this every month or 2 for about a week and use Rhodiola for the first few days until my body adjusts to it.

I also use this as a pre-workout and during times that I know, I will need an extra boost to endurance and to combat fatigue.

Stacks

A nootropic stack is a combination of supplements designed to synergistically create a specific effect that one supplement alone cannot perform.

Biohackers and experimenters from all over the world try out and share stack combinations with each other to improve the field of nootropics.

A common stack many people use is caffeine and L-theanine created most often by drinking a coffee and popping an L-theanine pill or drinking a coffee followed by a cup of green tea. This stack is said to reduce the jitteriness and intense high from coffee and provide a more mellow and relaxed focus.

There exist stacks for many brain states people wish to achieve such as stacks for creativity, sociability, recall, retention, stage performance, increased learning capacity, writing and more.

We’ll explore the world of stacks in future nootropic articles.

CONCLUSION 

I KNOW nootropics can change your life. It has for many people just like you (myself included). Research has indicated that these compounds are very powerful and they have been used since sometime in prehistory.

We will be looking at some of the more synthetic nootropics like racetams in a coming article.

You’re invited to take this journey into the world of nootropics with us.

Want Better Sleep? Read This (A Review of Qualia NIGHT)

More than one-third of Americans have trouble sleeping at night. That's roughly 100,000,000 people. 

Many of them reach for prescription products to help them sleep. 

Many others suffer restless nights, tossing and turning only to awaken in the morning feeling like they haven't slept. 

I used to be one of those people. 

I went to bed at 8pm, read a book till 10pm and then turned out the lights. 

Immediately my head would ramp up and spit out thought after thought. At 2am, frustrated and anxious I would feel like screaming. 

Finally, I found a solution that worked for me. 

I mixed 5-HTP (hydroxtryptophan) with collagen and some water, drank it down and fell asleep. 

I would keep this solution next to my bed for most nights when I couldn't sleep. 

It worked like a charm. 

But it was an unbalanced formula and I had heard that it would eventually burn out my neurotransmitters. So the goal was to use it only a couple times a week. 

I wanted to use it every single day. Because it worked. 

Whenever you take a supplement to sleep, you want to make sure its balanced. 

Taking 5-HTP with collagen wasn't balanced. I had to ensure I took time off every so often to allow my neurotransmitters to re-balance naturally. 

I didn't have the time back then to find a truly balanced formula to help with sleep, but there's now a company that has! 

I'm going to tell you about a new sleep formula called NIGHT that works and was designed by formulators diving deep into the science of biochemistry to ensure its balanced and effective. 

But first.... 

If You Can't Sleep, Try This

Remember, I found a solution to my sleep issues. It was taking 5-HTP and collagen with water. 

This did nothing for my active mind at night. But it definitely allowed me to sleep. 

With more sleep, I had less brain fog and more focused attention. 

I spent a ton of time researching about biohacking, eventually training with Dave Asprey and his team in the first class of bulletproof coaches. 

I learned two things I was doing wrong. One of them from Dave and one from Dr Jack Kruse. 

1. Do the inner emotional work. 

Part of my problem was that I had unresolved emotional issues.. don't we all. But I was actively avoiding dealing with them. I didn't want to talk to anyone about it because I thought people would think I was stupid or broken. My ego was in full force preventing me from living the life I wanted to and of course preventing me from sleeping well. 

Other articles on this blog, and on our newsletter, if you sign up, discuss how I dealt with this part. 

Please start here before relying on a supplement. A supplement will absolutely help, and I find they are valuable while doing the inner work, and then you can wean off all supplements later on.

For you, do the inner work. It will help you sleep. 

2. Block Blue Light After Dark. 

I learned so much about light in those early years it was like drinking from a fire hose. 

When I finally implemented the strategies, my sleep was FOREVER changed. 

I started wearing blue light blocking glasses and my entire world changed. 

I was able to sleep!

Now I sell my own version because I found the so effective. You can get a pair here using discount code primal10. 

Blocking blue light at night helps signal to our body that it's night. The body can then produce the right hormones to help you sleep and get the benefits of sleep.

This is SOOOOO important. If you haven't bought a pair of blueblockers, do this first. 

Next, work on the emotional issues, and if you need a supplement to help, get that while doing the inner work! 

Sometimes You Need Extra Support

 If you've done the blue light blocking and inner emotional work, or perhaps you haven't and just need to sleep, NOW, then a supplement might help. 

Remember, my concoction of 5-HTP and collagen worked wonders for me. 

Now you can try a pre-built sleep supplement that is far safer than prescription compounds. 

And guess what? It's built with that 5-HTP backbone in it that was so effective for me. 

One of the ingredients is L-tryptophan. 5-HTP is just 5-hydroxytryptophan and is a modified version of L-tryptophan. 

Each of these is modified in the body to become serotonin, which is converted to melatonin. 

5-HTP and tryptophan have been shown to decrease anxiety and to aid with sleep. 

Which should be obvious because melatonin is the hormone of sleep. 

Most people are wildly deficient in melatonin. 

This is because light at night destroys melatonin. And most of you are not blocking light at night by wearing blueblocking glasses. 

So you destroy your melatonin. 

Taking a supplement with tryptophan gives your body the precursor to the hormone you are losing by playing on your phone after dark. 

Qualia Night is the pre-built supplement that was designed to help you sleep. You can try it out and save using discount code PRIMALMIND. 

Qualia Night Benefits

L Theanine and Sleep

 Let's take a closer look at the other ingredients. 

L-theanine is associated with relaxation, focus and sleep. 

It's a key compound in green tea. Paired with caffeine, it takes away the caffeine jitters and provides a calm focus. 

At night it can help you relax and sleep better. It has been shown to boost GABA and reduce excitatory neurotransmitters.

Here's an article describing some of the studies showing these effects. 

White Peony

 White peony is one of the oldest remedies in traditional Chinese medicine. It has been used for everything from reducing anxiety to helping with sleep, anxiety, depression, and autoimmune issues. 

Y-Oryzanol

This is a compound from rice bran oil.

There really isn't a ton of studies on this compound yet. It has been used for anxiety and also building lean muscle. Some people use it to boost mental performance and athletic performance. Because not a ton of research has been performed, there isn't a lot of scientific data backing this up, but data from people who use it agree that it is effective. 

 Uridine

Uridine is a naturally occurring nucleic acid that plays a key role in many different neuroregulatory processes. It is believed to support short and long term memory, learning, attention, and executive function.

Mechanisms:

  • Uridine plays a key role in phospholipid synthesis, critical for cell membrane integrity
  • Acts as a novel endogenous neurotransmitter via purinergic receptors
  • Neuroprotective via its interaction with NGF and other integrins and growth factors
  • Supports synaptogenesis and neuroplasticity through increasing cerebral phosphatidylcholine levels needed to create dendrite membranes
  • Elevates dopamine without downregulation
  • Building block of RNA
  • Involved in long term potentiation which mediates memory and learning
  • Found in high amounts in human breast milk
  • Synergistic with choline donors, DHA, and other phospholipids


More Info:

 Ashwagandha

Personally, I love this compound. On days when I'm stressed, I'll take 4 tablets of Ashwagandha before bed. 

It's an adaptogenic herb and helps your body de-stress if its stressed or gain more energy if you need more energy. 

This herb has been in use for over 3,000 years and is well used in ayurved. 

It has been shown to reduce blood sugar, may have anti-cancer properties, may reduce cortisol and anxiety, increase testosterone in men and fertility in women, and increase lean muscle gain.

Light Protocol for Night Shift Workers (and New Moms who might well be considered night shift workers)

So you work at night.

When everyone else is sleeping.  Zzzzzzzzzz……

Maybe you consider yourself a night owl.

Maybe you love the lonlieness of the night.

Perhaps you just need the extra money.

Or in many cases, you’re a new Mom and you HAVE to be up, all hours of the night. AND the day too!

 

Well, I’ve got news for all of you lovely owls. Hoot hoot.

Humans are not nocturnal creatures.

That’s right. We belong in the SUN.

Nocturnal creatures have biology specifically designed to take the universe at night. We humans do not.

Sadly, those of us who like the cavort all night and sleep the day away are working against their biology.

In fact, light at night, referred to as ALAN (Artificial Light At Night) is associated with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Yikes!

We have developed a protocol for night shift workers based on tons of requests.

None of this protocol is well researched in the literature because all literature is focused on the fact that daytime living is best for humans. We hear all about the dangers of living at night and being immersed in artificial light and technology. Based on this information, we attempt to come up with a way to trick your body into reversing day for night while maintaining your health. We honestly don’t know if this will work, but its our best guess based on our knowledge of how the body works with light.

 

Light at Night is Not Designed for Humans

Humans are designed to be sleeping when it’s dark. Yep, even at 5pm in the winter.

Regardless of how society has been set up to drain you, your body is supposed to be asleep during the nighttime phase on our planet.

Countless studies show how staying up past dark is detrimental to our health.

We lose the benefits of melatonin, the body’s master anticancer hormone.

We unsync our circadian rhythm which is associated with a host of diseases.

Harvard Medical School had a nice article recently on the Dark Side of light at night. 

Even eating after dark is associated with increased obesity. The Gremlins movie had it right, don’t feed your cells after dark!

Gremlin eating after dark

What The Heck Do I Do?

First, DON’T PANIC.

Do you have your towel?

Good, then let’s get started.

While working at night is not healthy, if you must do it, then it’s a good idea to implement as many strategies as you can to make it better.

The first thing you have to do is understand a little more about your body and about the Earth in order to find the optimal way to work at night.

Clocks are the Key

Our journey into the night must start with the dawn!

Part of the reason working at night is so darn harmful is because we miss the natural cues from the sun telling our body what time it is.

That’s right, our body is like a giant clock. Each and every cell in our body has a clock in it.

Our body clocks are set by the sun via special receptors in the eye.

When we don’t see the sun and instead see artificial light by staying inside, or worse yet, sleep through the dawn, then we confuse our body.

If you are going to sleep at dawn it’s probably best to attempt to reset your clocks to think dawn is dusk.

Then around dusk, when you are getting ready for work, you will have to trick your body into thinking dusk is dawn.

Go outside within 30 minutes of dawn.

If you’re still at work, take a “smoke” break or bathroom break and get outside even for a few minutes.

Block Blue

During the daytime, after you see sunrise, put on a pair of blueblockers and cover your skin to the light.

Your eyes and skin read the light environment and will tell your body it’s daytime.

But you want to go to bed.

Get home and black out your bedroom.

Use blackout curtains or put tonfoil in your windows to block the light (it works).

Keep your blueblockers on and avoid using lights at home if at all possible.

We use RED LIGHTS (Discount Code SLEEP) at home when it should be dark as the body doesn’t react to red lights like it does blue. And remember that nearly all LEDs, CFLs, incandescent, and halogen lights have enough blue in them to disrupt your circadian rhythm.

You are trying to get your melatonin to release. It wont do that if you see blue light.

Go to sleep!

Get a Magnetico

When you go to bed, it’s best to sleep on a huge magnetic field.

Our belief is that the Earth used to have a wayyyy stronger magnetic field years ago and it’s been getting weaker for so long that it’s near zero now.

The magnetic field can help heal our bodies.

But it’s basically disappeared.

Also, if you’re sleeping during the day, the field is lower anyway.

On Earth, the electric field, created by the sun is higher. At night, the magnetic field is higher.

By sleeping on a Magnetico you mimic the natural magnetic field present years ago and at night.

You can watch Dr Bonlie HERE talking about this effect.

Stop Eating!

Don’t eat within 3 hours of your bedtime.

You want to go to sleep without food digesting in your stomach.

Our own research, using an Oura ring sleep data for many years, has shown that meals close to bedtime disrupt deep sleep.

Deep sleep is the time when the body repairs itself. You want as much of that as you can get.

Our deep sleep went from near 2 hours a night to less than an hour a night and sometimes down to 20 minutes if we ate too close to bedtime.

No Technology

This should be obvious by now. Put away the tech.

Technology can disrupt circadian rhythm from the EMF given off by most tech.

In addition, it can be stimulating and make it harder for many people to fall asleep.

Read a book in front of your red light (discount code SLEEP).

Then hit the hay.

Wake up and see the sun

Get up and get outside.

Sensible sun exposure increases vitamin D synthesized by the skin.

Low vitamin D status is associated with so many diseases I don’t even want to list them all. You can search here for many of them.

Because the sun is the BEST source of vitamin D, get outside with as few clothes on as possible and soak up some D.

Don’t wear your blueblockers, sunglasses, glasses, contacts, or sun screen. Get some sun. Be sensible about it and start slow if you haven’t been out much.

Ground

We recommend you stand outside barefoot where it’s safe to do so.

Being connected to the ground may reduce inflammation and increase your energy.

You just can’t substitute real sun and the Earth for any artificial construct.

 

Sunset and Breaking your Fast

Try to time your first meal around sunset.

Sunset is sunrise to you.

Most humans break their fast at sunrise (breakfast).

First we see the sunrise, then we eat.

Eyes covered at work

If possible wear daytime blueblockers or nighttime blueblockers.

You are surrounded by artificial light.

This light has been clearly shown to cause harm after sunset.

You want to let some of it in to keep you alert and awake, but not a constant bombardment.

Wear your blueblockers about half the time if you are able to and keep them off the other half.

If you work on a laptop all night, use an app like Iris.

Conclusion

You must learn to reverse day and night and try to mimic a true 24 hour cycle of light and dark, but in reverse of the actual light and dark on our planet.

While this isn’t ideal, it’s your best bet to survive night shift until you can start sleeping like a non-nocturnal animal again.

 

LANGUAGE OF LIGHT

Here are a few things you might not know about near infrared saunas


Have you ever heard of “COLOR THERAPY”?


“Red near infrared lamps emit mostly orange, and yellow light. Colored light therapy (chromotherapy) is a time honored modality. The orange, and yellow light have been linked to moving energy downwards to the most needy chakras. Red Infra light has been found to stimulate the adrenals, testes, ovaries, and growth. Orange light stimulates the intestines, liver, pancreas, and assimilation. Yellow stimulates the spleen, stomach, and digestion. Healing and detoxification may be enhanced.” 

Not only are you stimulating lower chakras but also your imagination.  The colors of the sunrise and sunset feed the nervous system as well.  We use the sauna in the morning for meditation.  There is something very primal about being naked in a warm protected space that heightens your imagination.  EYES CLOSED ;)  Using the sauna and color therapy your body will start to understand the Language of Light and how it can add another layer of healing to your daily morning ritual.   

sunset at night

Winter is a time for introspection, falling into yourself as creator of so many things, in our modern world, we forget to slow down.  Sometimes creating nothing and sitting still is the thing necessary for our survival.  We all have seasons and cycles.  Using winter cycles to create more down time, more reading time (yes books, with pages) limiting screen time, snuggling with your family or pets, taking slow walks, setting morning rituals, reflection and meditation in the sauna, cryotherapy, and then sleep more! 

If you are looking for ways to improve your health and longevity check out the sauna space website they have so much great information.  If you have been on the fence about putting a sauna in your home, use the 20%OFF link we have provided.  

There are so many reasons to sauna, and sauna space has innovated these aesthetically beautiful works of art to fit in our homes and our modern lives.

“Remotes" to add and delete that create a healthy home habitat

What the heck are you talking about?  What is a WIFI Remote you say?

Well leaving your WIFI on in your home all day could be compromising your health, especially while you are sleeping.  Wifi remotes and timers are very helpful tools to help keep your family’s habitat a healthy one. 


Using a WIFI remote can make the transition from a constant EMF environment to a healthy one easier than you think.  


We started using the remote to turn wifi off at night.  Now we even use them to turn on and off our dining room lights as well.  


*Side note: Our lights are all red light, because we are weird, yes and we have replaced all our regular lights with red bulbs.  We don’t do anything half-ass I guess. Creating a healthy habitat is very important to us.  So we use a Gembared light (Discount Code SLEEP) in our dining room and living room and use one of our remotes to turn on and off the light conveniently. We tack the remote to the wall with 3M command strips. 


THREE MAJOR CHANGES WE MADE: 


  • Eliminated EMF exposure in our living/ sleeping habitat
  • Created a healing light environment
  • Disconnected from anything that doesn’t align with our spirit/Higher self

DO’s


DO- use a WIFI Remote (Click here) to turn OFF WIFI every night.  You can get one for free on us at Primalhacker.com/store.  We lowered the price of these remotes just so everyone can get one. We are selling them for the exact cost we pay for them and shipping them to everyone for free. 


DO- Ditch TV Remotes... and TV altogether.  TV is a way people manipulate and enact mind controls without you knowing.   Find alternative sources of information, podcasts, underground sources, read more!  TV See our blog post about why we are boycotting all things Hollywood and Disney and you will learn why. 

eye in the tv 

This photo says it all. The image is Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) album cover based on Neil Postman’s “Amusing ourselves to Death” book. “Originally published in 1985, Neil Postman's groundbreaking polemic about the corrosive effects of television on our politics and public discourse has been hailed as a twenty-first-century book published in the twentieth century”.  Something to think about?  


We also do not give our children access to video games and we talk to them about violence and how our world is a place for peace.  There are dark forces that want you to think otherwise. We recommend reading to them books how to uplift your spirit. “The flower of life” is one of our homeschool textbooks.  


DO - Working REMOTELY can be a really good thing.  We do it all day everyday, why? Because we get to control our environment.  At Primalhacker we are the Environmental/habitat Health and wellness gurus. The junk light and high EMF environment is most corporate offices, schools and small businesses are off the charts.  The high flicker fluorescent lights and the shower of EMF (wifi, computers, cellphones…) DO NOT CREATE A healthy habitat for a human.  We are better off being able to control home based working spaces. Think about the school environment we put our kids in….yikes, its bad folks, like wifi routers in every room? Why?  


Irony 101: Why don’t schools know this stuff when we send our kids there to “Learn?” Junk light and high EMFs, this is not a healthy environment that encourage learning from a biological standpoint.  


DO- Consider Remote viewing perspectives.  Conspiracy crew, you'll love this! if you don’t already know.  Check out Allgire and his drawings.  


Remote viewing is another angle to information if you haven’t heard of it.


  “A remote viewer is able to gain information about faraway, unseen people, events or locations that are unknown to them. They can witness events they aren’t present for; hear conversations between people out of earshot; and visit locations they’ve never been to. By sending their mind rather than their body to see and feel exactly what is happening, they can report findings back to others.”

https://www.psychicgurus.org/how-to-remote-view/ 


Do- work REMOTE from sunnier locations.  For folks in the northern countries and northern states.  If you can work remotely from southern climates during the winter months can boost your immune system.  Dr Jack Kruse recommends this prescription: Taking 2 trips per year during the winter to the latitude as close to the equator as possible for 2-3 days in the sun.  This will build your Vitamin D stores for up to 4-6 weeks. This can help you get through until spring when the UV is strong enough for us to actually begin to make Vitamin D again.   It's a much healthier alternative to prescription meds (antidepressants).

Traveling also let’s you gain broader perspectives.  


DONT’S


DON’T-forget to turn off WIFI at night, this is the time your body needs for restoration.  NEVER SLEEP WITH WIFI ON!


DON’T- Waste your life being programmed by mainstream media and TV.  Find alternative sources of information, know your sources, consider underground news or remote viewing?  Don’t give your family access to violence on TV or video games. There is no place for violence in our world.  Boycott anything violent, Hollywood and DIsney for sure! More on Disney.


DON’T -Forget to take sunshine & movement breaks throughout the day when working Remotely from home or Remote away from home. 


DON’T - Use a Smart remote, or anything Labeled “Smart” in your home.  It will literally make you dumb. All the smart products are meant to surveil you and your family making you an easy marketing target.  


DON’T- Trust most things  you’ve ever been taught in school, question everything!  Find ways to uplift your spirit/higher self. You know the answers, you know more than you think.  



We love sharing everything we are learning with you.  Please share, like, comment. Let us know anything else you are curious about. 


Hope your days are filled with miracles.


Peace and love

Mel Gibson: Hollywood Is NOT What You Think

You wanted more conspiracy theory?  You got it!


After learning so much about what happens in the world. 


We, THADDEUS AND TOMORROW AT PRIMALHACKER.  Have decided to BOYCOTTt ALL THINGS HOLLYWOOD AND DISNEY.  Now that the google veil has been lifted search it up yourself. Here is a link for the movie that explains a lot of what we are talking about here, and solidifies our decision. 


Here’s why


Take a look at these photos and see for yourself. This is not OK, These people are NOT COOL.

 

Did you know Walt Disney, a 33rd level mason, obtained the Florida Disney property thanks to the CIA

There are dark forces in this world and we have all been blinded and mind controlled.  

 After studying many books on spirit and “TRUTH TALK” we are going to Seek all things LIGHT AND LOVE and keep a clean visual/audio Environment.  


We always encourage everyone to do their own research.  


To better protect our family and our SPIRIT, we are dedicated to raise our vibration, that also means our visual and audio ENVIRONMENT as they have been hacked and manipulated by the Producers!  You are going to be hearing a lot more about ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH from us.    


Health isn’t just what you hear about nutrition and movement.  It’s the totality of all the information your mind is (biological supercomputer) is constantly decoding.  Every moment there are 40 million frequencies your mind is picking up, the mind can only decode 11 million of them.  Movie makers know this. David Icke Explains this in his book “Everything you need to know but have never been told.”   


“Hollywood is a global programming operation and has been used since its inception to mass download perceptions of people, world events and history that suits the prevailing order.  Part of this is the technique known as preemptive programming where you employ futuristic storylines and images to make the subconscious familiar with them. Nearly all the movies involve expteme violence and nearly all are shot in semi-darkness or with a dark tinge to the picture as with the occult programming.  


"Many  actors in Hollywood, singers and other entertainers are under trauma-based mind control to serve the mass perception -programming agenda”  Pg 235 -Icke


Cathy O'Brien or Cathleen Ann O'Brien is an American author and speaker who claims to be a victim of a government mind control program called Project Monarch which she alleges was part of the CIA's Project MKUltra  Here is another statement from her husband, Mark.  


Mark always said, “You have to know where you’ve been to know where you’re going.” This statement is so profoundly true that Deep State/New World Order globalists attempted to control our future by strategically rewriting history in our education system, tearing down our sacred monuments, and manipulating our knowledge base through controlled media’s fake news.”  


There are sooooo many more reasons to boycott.  As parents we have been talking to our kids for years and years about violence in movies and TV.  It’s so embedded into the fabric of our society and that’s not normal or is it OK!  

Try on this opener to the Golden Globes this year.. MAJOR truth drop

among the many truthdrops in his speech to Hollywood "In this room are some of the most important TV and film executives in the world. People from every background. They all have one thing in common: They're all terrified of Ronan Farrow. He's coming for ya. Talking of all you perverts, it was a big year for pedophile movies"

Here is a list of DO’s and Don’ts when it comes to Your Family's Environmental Health



Do watch movies that lift the spirit, GAIA TV, Documentaries where you increase your knowledge base and teach you how to do things.

Research the producer of the film, see who behind the programming you are about to bring into your world of perception & environment.  


Don’t watch violent movies, never ever watch horror movies or anything “Hollywood” produced.  Including Disney. He was a 33 ranking freemason with satanic roots yikes! Look up the black pope see for yourself.  


Do talk/teach your children & family about violence in the media, movies, and video games.  Explain to them that dark forces want to bring darkness/chaos and stress into your homes through these channels.  Why is that ok? What can you do to minimize violence in your own home starting with YOU?  


Don’t give your children access to violent games at any age.  Access is the key word here. If you have it in your home they will play it.  If you get rid of it they may be able to go to the friends house, but you will cut that time in half starting with your home.  Talk to friends' parents about getting rid of the violence plan. Just planting seeds. Creating an atmosphere of sacred peaceful space is a great start.  


Do REPLACE TV WITH NATURE cleanse your spirit with a forest bath or walk in nature everyday.  If you do this, kids will follow. Make it a priority and a habit.  

Read more books, although be weary of history books.  They were only written by the victors and white men. They need to be rewritten.  Zinn’s book “People’s History of the United States” is a good place to start, a perspective from minorities and women/children.  We will be making a list of books we recommend to UPGRADE YOUR SPIRIT as well.  


Don’t watch TV daily or the mainstream media news!  *We only have one (TV) in our home that our kids have access to.  We don’t ever PAY for cable. They can only use it sparingly with our permission for programs that lift and enlighten.  

Find news that isn't owned by the CIA or one of only 6 mega corporations.

Find alternative sources of information or stay away from it altogether.  Take a deep Spirit cleanse.  


Do Pass on this information to all your friends and family.  Talk openly about it. Share and teach your kids about all of this.  If anyone rejects its….its just a natural progression of humans, called cognitive dissonance.   This occurs when a person holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values, or participates in an action that goes against one of these three, and experiences psychological stress because of that.  


Don’t sit inside and waste your life watching “MIND CONTROL” TV.  Know your sources. Research yourself. 


Here is another quote from David Icke.


“Our entire media outlets in the United States are owned by just 6 corporations, News Corp, Viacom, Time Warner, Disney, CBS Corp and NBC.  Go deep enough in the Web and all 6 will be controlled by the same hidden network. A tiny number of Web-connected people own the global media, “entertainment’ industry- INCLUDING HOLLYWOOD, and the Internet.  You see different television and radio channels, newspapers and magazines on every subject you can imagine and there seems to be endless choice from apparently independent sources; but research into how few ultimately own them all and you will be shocked.  Icke has exposed more about this in his two books “HUMAN RACE GET OFF YOUR KNEES and THE PERCEPTION DECEPTION.   


In conclusion, Primalhacker will not be supporting anything produced by “Hollywood” or Disney or any other sources unless we research the producer and know where our information is sourced.  It’s almost like how we talk about nutrition, eat seasonal, locally sourced. Begin by sourcing your ENVIRONMENT! Mostly organic, local high spirit sourced information is the new diet fad yall. 


With Peace LIGHT AND LOVE

WiFi is Destroying Your Sleep and How to Fix it

Let’s face it, sleep is absolutely critical.

If you’re reading this email you’ll also be immersed in media fear and controversy over the global pandemic situation.

Well, guess what?

Regardless of whether you think the pandemic will affect you, we absolutely know that sleep boost immunity better than any drug or supplement.

Sleep boosts immunity and protects you from disease. In addition, ensuring your body is maximally set into a system of repair instead of break down is critical, especially in this time of chaos.

But WAIT.. do you have your Wifi on all night while you sleep?

This is a big problem. You see, we pretty much know that wifi is damaging to our bodies and when we sleep can interfere with the benefits of sleep.

You don’t really believe that Wifi is damaging?

Well, out of the billions of frequencies, why did they choose 2.4GHz for wifi?

It just so happens that this frequency interacts with water in our body and causes our cells to dehydrate.

Ok, so maybe you don’t understand that.

Let’s make it a little clearer.  Go to your WiFi router and look at what frequency it broadcasts on. You can do this online too.. just look it up. It’s 2.4 – 2.45GHz.  Some routers will also run off 5GHz. That’s not 5G as in the new tech role out, but 5GHz which is a different thing completely.

OK, now I want you to go look at your microwave oven. Or look this up online for all those of you smart people who have no microwave. What frequency does your microwave oven use?

Unbelievably it’s 2.4 GHz!!!!!

Wait, what?

The microwave oven, that heats up your food, and that you would NEVER stick your head inside of and turn on uses the EXACT same frequency as your WiFi router spreading invisible waves throughout your entire house 24/7.

This sure seems odd to me.

Microwaves use the exact frequency that maximally affects water to be efficient cookers.

And for some reason the wireless companies chose this same frequency to put in your router. Weird, right?

What happens when you put a steak in the microwave and turn it on?

It gets dehydrated right?

What happens to your cells in your body all day long when you bathe in wifi microwaves of the exact same frequency as the microwave oven?


In addition, Wifi causes oxidative damage in our cells. All night long for those of you leaving wifi on all night.

Here’s just sample of some studies, because everyone always asks, “where’s the study for that?”  - you know, we don’t always need studies to prove something is harming you and frankly if the wireless companies and mind control organizations think microwaves are the perfect interface for human control, then the data showing harm will be pretty sparse.

Anyway

“Melatonin has been considered a potent antioxidant that detoxifies a variety of reactive oxygen species in many pathophysiological states of eye. The present study was designed to determine the effects of Wi-Fi exposure on the lens oxidant, antioxidant redox systems, as well as the possible protective effects of melatonin on the lens injury induced by electromagnetic radiation (EMR).” Indian Journal of Opthamalogy Effects of melatonin on Wi-Fi-induced oxidative stress in lens of rats

 

“There are poor oxidative toxic effects of one hour of Wi-Fi exposure on the lens in the animals. However, melatonin supplementation in the lens seems to have protective effects “ – Huh…. Wifi harms our eyes.. that doesn’t sound good.

 

And this article

“Even a phone set to the lowest level of light could still cause the same suppression of melatonin as a fully lit phone. That’s because the reduced creation of melatonin before bed might actually be caused by the electromagnetic frequency being given off from your cellphone as it receives and emits information through a 4G network or wifi. Your brain mistakes this information for light, which causes your brain to reduce the levels of melatonin it creates.” - Pineal melatonin level disruption in humans due to electromagnetic fields

 

Sleep affects immune system.

And finally this study:
Sleep and the circadian system exert a strong regulatory influence on immune functions.”

 

Ok, so turn your darn WiFi off every single night.. because you want a strong immune system and you want good sleep.

About 5 years ago I came out with this video on my old YouTube channel. It was a really simple video about turning off your wifi at night with a remote control. It got OVER 200,000 views!!! Wow!! This was WOO WOO science back then..

There were A LOT of people interested in turning off WIFI.. I even got hundreds of comments. And honestly, I never read any of them because I changed over to the Primalhacker Youtube channel and never looked back at my old channel…oops.

Well, I wanted to make wifi remotes cheaper for everyone.

You can buy a remote on Amazon and that’s been my advice for years.

However, I went out and sourced some remotes and I’m offering them on my website now.  IN this time of chaos, I want everyone to turn off their WiFi every single night.

Here’s what you can do

Plug your wifi router into THIS remote control system. Place the remote on your bed on stairway or hallway and turn off the wifi when you go to sleep with the remote. Turn it back on when you wake up. Super Simple!!

BTW – we decided to make these available as cheap as we possible could!!

Right now we have made these essentially free if you pay shipping and handling!!  That’s $11 for the remote control including shipping (US continental only) Until we run out. $11 is what I paid for these myself, so I’m actually losing the shipping to you and the shipping I paid to have them originally shipped to me. I think it’s too important right now to let everyone microwave themselves…

Take advantage of this and get your “free” wifi remote control click RIGHT
