How can you improve creativity?

Where does creativity come from?

Is there a hidden well inside of us that’s full for some and empty for others?

The truth is, I’ve been sitting and staring at a blank Word document for the past hour trying to think of something to write about.

I’ve been hypnotized by the blinking of the flashing vertical line that appears where you type in a text document.

As an amateur biohacker, I think I’ve written about all of my health adventures – very successful ones might I add.

So what else can I talk about?

Then it hit me—literally five minutes ago.

I’ve always shared past experiences, but what if I invite you on a real-time biohacking journey?

This time, let’s tackle a challenge I’m sure many of you face: enhancing creativity.

Creativity isn’t just for artists or writers; it’s crucial in every facet of life, from problem-solving in your career to improving your social interactions.

In the next section, I’ll share the insights from my deep dive into how you can improve your creativity.

It’s almost like you’re time traveling.

DRD2, L-Tyrosine and Creativity

I’m back, and I have potential solutions.

I followed Joe’s path that he took when trying to solve his social anxiety, went into the SelfDecode platform and added a new goal – to improve creativity.

Then I went into my recommendations and filtered out by cognition and supplements.

One of my top recommendations was to take L-tyrosine, as it helps me achieve my goal and tackles the genetic risks I have with executive function, creativity, cognition, anxiety, and dopamine.

L-tyrosine is an amino acid that plays a crucial role in the production of dopamine, a neurotransmitter pivotal for cognitive functions and creativity.

Research indicates that a single 2-gram dose of tyrosine can enhance convergent thinking, a form of problem-solving that requires one to come up with a single, well-established answer to a problem.


L-tyrosine helps increase dopamine levels, a key neurotransmitter that facilitates cognitive flexibility and novel thinking, which are essential components of creativity.

If you carry the negative DRD2 gene – like I do – it may result in fewer dopamine receptors, lower dopamine levels, and decreased creativity.

Based on all the information I’ve gathered from SelfDecode, L-tyrosine is going to help me recapture my creativity and I’ll hopefully be able to write some Pulitzer Prize winning emails.

What Next?

Now that I’ve figured this out, I’ve just finished ordering some L-tyrosine supplements.

I’ll follow up in 2 weeks to let you know the results of this biohacking experiment.

If I had to use previous experiences to predict the outcome of this one, I’m confident that I’ll get my creative mojo back in less than a week.

Now, it’s your turn to explore how your genetic makeup could influence your creative potential and discover tailored solutions that can help you excel in every aspect of life.

Don’t let a lack of creativity hold you back.

Dive into your SelfDecode recommendations today, and let’s embark on this journey of improved creativity together.

Who knows, maybe you’re just one step away from unlocking your genius.
