Dr. Stickler is a future-focused visionary and a thought leader in human potential. He is the cofounder of the Apeiron Center for Human Potential and the Apeiron Academy. Disheartened by our current “sick care” approach to health, Dr. Stickler created Human Potential Medicine- an integrated, biospherical systems-approach that combines the scientific grounding and expertise of modern medicine with leading-edge genetic/epigenetic science and neuro-psychophysiological modalities to expand human capacity. He also established the Apeiron Academy, which offers advanced education to a tribe of like-minded individuals determined to shift the health & wellness paradigm from the current sick-care model to one of optimized human potential.

Dr. Stickler’s leadership informing Neurohacker Collective’s approach to the science of human optimization, will deliver some of the most well researched and scientifically rigorous products available in the wellness market for years to come.

Have you ever thought to yourself "I know I'm a lot smarter than I feel."? Does your brain have a hard time keeping up with the demands you put on it? Do you have control over the degree to which you experience brain fog and lack of focus and concentration?

If you answer affirmatively to any or all of these inquiries, you might want to consider giving your brain some assistance in the form of nootropics and smart drugs. These are compounds (some natural, some not so much) that assist your brain in functioning at a higher level. Some of them have been clinically proven to improve memory, creativity, focus, concentration, computation, processing speed, and data analysis. In other words, you can hack your brain and become more intelligent by consuming various supplements produced for that purpose.

Sounds great right? Who doesn't want to be a bit sharper, especially if that edge can be achieved by popping a few pills each morning?

The issue that naturally arises when one considers taking one of these 'magic pill' shortcuts is knowing what to take, and when. What about negative side-effects, and possible dangerous interactions? And how do you know which brands to trust?

Well, luckily for you and all of the listeners to this episode, one of the world's leading experts on the subject joined the show to share his knowledge and experience in all things brain-hacking. Dr. Dan Stickler has been researching and using various nootropics for years and is a seemingly endless source of expertise in this fascinating area of personal optimization.  

So put on your seatbelt, and prepare for takeoff. We're about to enter the depths of human potential.

Please use whatever memory power you're currently able to access to share this episode with at least one friend who could use a cognitive upgrade.

To a healthy mind,

Luke
