Top 5 Nutrients to Increase Brain Power.

increase brain power

Everyone loves the movie Limitless and some of you may have thought of getting NZT in real life.

So, are you here for NZT?

I have to disappoint you because I don't have that drug.

In the movie,( Limitless )Eddie Morra got nootropic called NZT-48. The drug gave him the full control of his brain.

His cognitive functions, memory recall, and other learning abilities increased to its fullest. In real life, there is no such drug which can give you full brain control. But I am not saying it is not possible to Make your brain more sharp and healthy. There is always a scope for improvement.

You can increase brain power with your healthy habits and diet. We will cover the healthy habits section later in other articles. Here we gonna list out some amazing nutrients which can really make you smarter than you are now.

So without any further delay let's start our list of top 5 nutrients ( our own personal NZT-48 ).

1. Proteins For Brain.

have you ever heard about Neurons?

I bet you have if you are into this brain kind of stuff for a long time. For the general public let me introduce the main hero of our brain "The Neuron". Neuron transmits information in the form of electrical signals.

In simple terms

 Neurons------->Transmit information.

There are gaps----------->Between neurons.

Neurons----------> communicate with each other----------------> via proteins.

So if your diet doesn't have protein content in enough amount chances are your brain is unhealthy because Neurons will not be able to communicate effectively.

Note-Hormones are proteins and that's why hormonal balance is also dependent on protein content in your body.

So what to do now?

Include enough proteins in your diet, my friend.


A. Neurons communicate via proteins.

B. Hormones are made up of proteins.

C. Use protein-rich food items in your diet.


2. Don't Forget the Antioxidants.
