Superfoods that make your brain tick

This one is for all techy and dev folks that are burning the candle on both ends way too often. We've all been there - projects' deadlines are creeping up faster than we think, 2-week sprints seem to blur into 2 days work and we're constantly exhausted sitting non ergonomically behind the blue screens while manically typing/clicking the mouse to the ground. The pressure of strong performance is rising and we're slowly becoming the BURNT OUT generation. Work/life balance is nowhere in sight. Sounds too familiar, ay?     

What if we told you there are ways to boost your overall brain capacity, create new nerve cells and subsequently new synergies and therefore work smarter rather than harder? This isn't another ad for an All-in-One pill that will magically make you a superhuman. On the contrary, it's an honest review/guide to a healthier lifestyle, and longevity powered by smart tips that will accelerate your journey. 

Hello, Mediterranean diet 

The Mediterranean diet is a primarily plant-based eating plan. Its main focus is on daily intake of whole grains, olive oil, fruits, vegetables, beans and other legumes, nuts, herbs, and spices. There is the meat of course too, however, it's recommended to be eaten in smaller quantities, preferably choosing fish and seafood. If you guys are like us and normally eat a central European diet consisting mostly of carbohydrates and meat, you may be surprised at the spurt of energy you experience once you switch. 

Fish Oil and Omega 3 fatty acids are the culprits behind the reprogenetics and creation and sustainability of neurons in our body. So if you are powering them at the root, your whole metabolic rate goes up, resulting in a well oiled superfast human machine. If you prefer supplements, have you tried this one?  

Okay, so we've cleaned up our diet, what about coffee?

The first port of call when dealing with dynamic deadlines is of course our best friend caffeine. The hot beverage that pushes us beyond our limits is the number 1 choice for most of us. Besides the fact that coffee dehydrates, it has a lot of great benefits, given in small amounts. 

Now, to pimp your cuppa and to satisfy your brain, try adding a teaspoon of MCT Oil. MCTs (or medium-chain triglycerides) are triglyceride molecules consisting of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which include caproic acid, caprylic acid, and capric acid. They are popularly known to raise ketone levels. And why is this important? MCFAs can enter mitochondria (these sacred cells in our body) without using the carnitine transport system, making them a readily usable source of energy. And boy do they work! Skyrocketing your energy levels throughout all your body including feeding those million brain cells every time. What are you waiting for?

Now for more advanced and determined brainiacs, we have … Nootropics

Really, guys, this is something else. Hot off the press, the current trend being promoted by nutritionists and scientists are nootropics. But what are they? Nootropics also called “smart drugs,” are a class of substances that can boost brain performance. They are also known as cognitive enhancers. Their key job is to support the brain alpha levels and provide comprehensive brain nutrition. Nootropics promise long-lasting brain optimization while enhancing productivity. The added benefits are stimulant-free natural origins ingredients that support the organism. Unfortunately, there are only a few clinical trials so far in the market, so the jury is still out on them, but why not give it a go? Our top pick is Brain Focus from Powerlogy

Discovering ways how to boost your brain doesn't necessarily mean the use of chemicals. You may be surprised to hear there are manual rituals you can implement on a daily basis to create new synapses in your brain and therefore the new path of thinking. Brush your teeth for just 5 minutes each morning with the opposite non-dominant hand. Using your opposite hand will strengthen neural connections in your brain, and even grow new ones. It can be compared to a body exercise just that
