Adrafinil is a novel nootropic compound that is used to increase focus, energy and motivation. Adrafinil was best known in the past for it’s brand name Olmifon, which was developed and manufactured in the 1970’s by the French pharmaceutical Lafon Labs. This product was introduced to the market to treat Narcolepsy, a sleep disorder.
The important benefits provided by Adrafinil are:
Adrafinil is metabolized in the body into Modafinil to increase alertness and concentration.
Adrafinil is a mild stimulant developed to combat mental and physical fatigue.
Adrafinil is used by executives, military personnel and night shift workers to endure long hours of work.
Since Adrafinil is a pro-drug to Modafinil, and it is metabolized in the body to become an active pharmacological substance, it is used in place of other sleep medication on the market that require a prescription. It effectively fights off fatigue, lack of motivation and sleepiness.
