December 20, 2018

Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced in the body that helps our circadian rhythm, or the sleep-wake cycle.

Melatonin is relatively safe so it’s available over-the-counter in many pharmacies, health and wellbeing shops, and online stores in the US.

5 vitamins that are good for your brain

5 vitamins that are good for your brain

October 25, 2018

Let’s play a mini Hollywood quiz here.

What do the movies “Limitless” and “Lucy" have in common?

Aside from having A-listers headlining them, both movies feature the main characters ingesting certain substances that allow them to have a superhuman brain! The substances help them actively use a massive portion of their brain and achieve an out-of-this-world cognitive function.

Whether you want to learn faster, avoid Alzheimer’s disease, or simply win those memory card games (or mini quizzes like that one), you can boost focus, memory, and mental clarity.

All thanks to vitamins.

Certain vitamins have been said to boost memory. And this article will cover just that.

For a healthier brain, here are the top 8 vitamins that you should take stat!
