Optimizing Social Situations With Nootropics

With every different social situation, there comes a different set of rules. You may not know it but you can certainly feel it each time you enter a different scenario. 

Think about it. You wouldn’t act the same way in a job interview as you would in a nightclub, right? But each situation gets your heart beating in a different kind of way.

What if there was a way to optimize all social situations as if they carried the same inherent rules? When you think about it, you probably want to be cool, calm and collected the same way you would a job interview as you would walking up to that girl in the club… even if the content of the situation is different. 


Two Types of Social Anxiety

Whether they admit it or not, most people experience some degree of social anxiety. Some people have a healthy response to almost all social situations (think butterflies before a date) whereas others can be crippled by the thought of leaving the house. 


The difference between the two is known as generalized and non-generalized anxiety. Pretty much everyone feels the former whereas the ladder is a bit more specific.

Optimizing Social Situations

The focus of this article isn’t meant to be crippling social anxiety. That’s another topic for another day. We are here to talk about peak experiences interacting with others. 


We are here to talk about how you can always feel on when out in public, in the boardroom, or even at the coffee shop. No matter what the scenario, you are firing on all cylinders. How is that possible?




Kidding, kidding… Seriously. 


Under no scenario would we recommend the use of any illegal substances to enhance a social situation. That would be just plain stupid. So what’s the alternative? 


Nootropics. What are nootropics? Hard to explain. 


Per Wikipedia, Nootropics are…


“...a wide range of natural or synthetic supplements or drugs and other substances that are claimed to improve cognitive function or to promote relaxation, particularly boosting mood, executive functions, attention, memory, creativity, or motivation in healthy individuals…”


Coffee is a nootropic. Nicotine is a nootropic. Operative words there are ‘a wide range.’ 


Maybe you want to be stimulated, maybe you want to relax. Most people just want to be focused for the specific task at hand. Some just want to take the edge off without hopping on an SSRI. The Top 1% probably want to be limitless (think CEOs, competitive athletes)... anything to get an edge. 


Can nootropics do all that? Limitless, no, not yet. But they can certainly help with a wide array of situations specific to your needs. 


Let’s say you wanted to relieve some stress and improve your mood but with no impact on sleep… you could look into L-Theanine.


“...one study found that just 50mg per day was a good L-theanine dosage for anxiety, which works out to just over 2 cups of tea per day, based on a standard 20mg dose per cup…” [1]


Maybe you are overly stressed and you need something to reduce your cortisol levels… you could look into Ashwagandha (KSM66)...


“...KSM-66 Ashwagandha caused significant reduction in Perceived Stress among the subjects…” [2]


There’s also agmatine sulfate, which has been shown clinically to reduce stress in rodents. [3


Maybe you just want to wake up in the morning… you already know about caffeine. In fact, the author of this article is sippin’ down a hot cup of Joe right now.


Do nootropics help with social anxiety?


If it wasn’t obvious already, the answer is yes. Nootropics do help with social anxiety. 


Most social situations bring a level of fear which is the basis of all anxiety. We briefly covered L-Theanine, Ashwagandha and Agmatine Sulfate above as some nootropics that can help. 


These are just a few of the supplements you could possibly take to improve your social anxiety. But what happens if you combine all three?
