You're probably a coffee drinker. It's great for concentration, improving your attention, and giving you a "kick" to keep going with your work.
Add L-Theanine to your coffee, an amino acid found in green tea, and you have just "unlocked" one of the most popular Nootropic stacks today.
Many people, myself included, tend to get the feeling of "calm focus" when they combine L-Theanine with their coffee.
This is all thanks to the relaxing properties of L-Theanine, which work in synergy with the focus-enhancing aspects of Caffeine. By itself, caffeine raises your heart-rate, blood pressure, and can give you anxiety if you drink too much.
L-Theanine works to counter-act these negative effects by reducing your heart-rate, blood pressure levels, and helping to promote alpha brain waves (relaxing you against the jitters and anxiety).
So by taking both caffeine and L-Theanine, you are getting all of the pro's associated with caffeine (concentration, attention and energy) without the negative side-effects... That sweet sense of calm focus.

Procrastination is the sin of our age. Nearly everyone suffers from it. Is it a psychological weakness? Is it mental laziness? Or is it, perhaps, a dietary thing?

If you're thinking of trying 5-HTP as a nootropic -- rather than as a prescribed medicine to alleviate depression -- it's worthwhile investigating the science behind it. Taken on its own, 5-HTP can provide a short-term increase in the levels of serotonin (the so-called "happiness hormone") but for longer-term use you need to stack it with other nootropics, such as B-Vitamins -- easily obtainable from health food stores.
