There are lots of supplements out there at the moment advertising themselves as “super stimulants”, legal study drugs, or “natural Adderall alternatives“.
Typically, any supplement selling itself as an alternative to Adderall (or any other harmful prescription drug) is a scam. That’s just the way it goes; rip-off merchants like to use the reputation of things like Modafinil and Adderall to sell product. Reputable manufacturers never use such tactics.
But that doesn’t mean that all energy supplements are useless.
There are lots of stimulants out there that are definitely worth trying if you need some extra energy, be it for work, university, or sports performance.
These energy supplements are far less risky than the pharmaceutical grade stimulants or study drugs currently used without medical supervision by many university students, programmers, traders, and business executives.
While there are plenty of people out there looking for the safest legal stimulant, or the most cost-effective legal stimulant, that isn’t what we’re going to focus on in this article.
Instead, we’re going to focus on a question we get asked far more than any of those others – what is the most powerful legal stimulant?
Most Powerful Legal Stimulant
What is the most powerful legal stimulant?
By legal here, we are talking about substances that are legal to buy over the counter in most jurisdictions.
So we aren’t talking about amphetamines (e.g. Adderall), even if they can be bought in a pharmacy in Thailand!
We’re talking about natural supplements that you can buy from a store in most countries.
What is the most potent natural stimulant?
In our opinion, the most powerful legal stimulant is caffeine.
That is a very boring answer, but it’s the truth.
Caffeine is extremely under-appreciated as a stimulant in our opinion. This is only natural, as caffeine is SO ubiquitous in our society. Most of us consume a lot of caffeine on a daily basis, so we tend not to think of it as a particularly potent drug.
But caffeine is an extremely powerful stimulant.
It is a fast-acting central nervous system stimulant. It works reliably well for almost everybody, and you only need to consume a small amount to have a massive effect.
For example, an average coffee from a chain coffee store contains anywhere from 90mg to 250mg of caffeine, depending on the coffee and the store.
Think about that – as little as 250mg of a substance can give you significant effects that last for hours.
For most people 250mg of caffeine is enough to cause serious side effects, let alone positive effects!
Compared to other stimulants, caffeine is highly potent. There’s no denying it. If anybody thinks that caffeine isn’t a powerful legal stimulant, then they should try consuming 300mg of caffeine in a single sitting. It wont be a mild experience, that’s for sure!
The fact that caffeine isn’t treated as a potent stimulant is a problem with our society and how we think about drugs. It is not an accurate reflection of how caffeine itself affects the body.
