5 vitamins that are good for your brain

5 vitamins that are good for your brain

February 03, 2020

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.

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!

Melatonin as a sleeping aid: what you need to know

Melatonin as a sleeping aid: what you need to know

January 16, 2020

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.

January 06, 2020

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).

Dehydration: causes, signs and symptoms

December 18, 2019 1 Comment

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: [1]

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. [2]
