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.
Of course, these are pure fiction (for now maybe) and it would take a Black Mirror-like dystopia for us to experience it ourselves.
But while an almost 100% brain function is still in the realm of sci-fi, achieving optimal cognitive function like attention, memory, reasoning, and learning languages is already possible.
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.

Cranberries bring a lot of benefits to our bodies (more of this later), and one of the most popular benefits is in treating Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).
But is it?
Some articles say they don’t really do anything with UTI. It’s all a myth! At least that’s what a few studies show.
Several human trials and reports say otherwise though. Drinking cranberry juice or taking cranberry supplements actually help in lowering the risk of UTI!
In this article, we’re going to settle this one and for all.

It’s our crowning glory.
Hair can totally change how a person looks, from one style to another. It’s such an important part of our look that many people are so invested in maintaining great-looking hair - or losing it. (Just ask the hair and waxing salons!)
Ever seen an episode of America’s Next Top Model where a contestant goes through a makeover? Hardly any season shows an episode without someone shedding a tear (or having an emotional breakdown) facing the shears.
Many of us want fuller, healthier, great looking stunning hair from the roots to the end. Not everyone is lucky to have it naturally though.
The good news is that this article will give you the low down of everything you need to know about hair, and how you can grow luscious locks fast.
A woman's hair is her crowning glory.
The 15 billion dollar hair care industry in the United States is a reflection of this.  Many women spends hundreds of dollars a month on hair care products and services, just to achieve a Beyonce-like mane. Regular trips to the salon and home remedies alike, many women treat their hair care seriously to steer clear of those bald patches on the head.

Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced in the body that helps our circadian rhythm, or the sleep-wake cycle. Also known as the “hormone of darkness”, there are certain parts of the day when it’s high (in the evening) and low (in the morning) - rising levels make us feel sleepy and lower ones keep us alert.
If you’re one to toss and turn at night, your body might be needing more melatonin. While you can get melatonin from certain foods and controlling the amount of light in the room, melatonin supplements are easy to come by too. Melatonin is relatively safe so it’s available over-the-counter in many pharmacies, health and wellbeing shops, and online stores in the US.
This article will walk you through how melatonin works, why and when you should take it, and some power tips for taking it.

If you’re feeling so stressed right now, you’re not alone.
A recent study notes that 1 in four Americans think they’re going through high levels of stress. And 50% of the US population say they’re suffering from moderate stress. 
With all the multitude of things that go on around us, this isn’t news flash at all. We’re living in a hyperactive world that it’s hard not to get troubled by different worries.
But too much stress – especially when gone unchecked – can affect our body in many ways.
Here are 5 ways stress drains our energy, and how we can cope fast.
Ever heard of the Limitless movie (or the Netflix show for that matter)? It’s where Bradley Cooper’s character, Edward Morra, found a nootropic drug - NZT-48 - which turned him from a struggling writer into a brain super power (like 4-digit IQ and a memory that remembers practically EVERYTHING).
Let’s just say that this Limitless drug exists IRL, except that it’s a naturally-occurring amino acid. And it also starts with the letter L.
Dehydration is probably one of the most overlooked conditions that doesn’t get a lot of medical attention. After all, it’s normal to get thirsty, right?
But it’s more than just getting thirsty.
In fact, thirst isn’t always the best way to tell whether you’re dehydrated or not. Some people suffering from it don’t realize they are, until symptoms manifest. Hence, it’s important to keep yourself hydrated at all times, but more so during hot weather or when you’re sick.
According to WebMD: 
Dehydration happens when your body doesn't have as much water as it needs. Without enough, your body can't function properly. You can have mild, moderate, or severe dehydration depending on how much fluid is missing from your body.
Symptoms for dehydration range from mild discomfort to severe conditions such as “blood clots, seizures, and other potentially fatal complications.
