To perform at your best you need to get your mind right! At the foundational level you need to get your body working optimally internally first: hormone system – digestive system – detox system. On top of this, to go to the next level, there are a certain class of nutraceuticals/supplements called “nootropics” that work specifically to increase mental function – focus, attention, memory, speed, creativity, flexibility.
This is huge for performance! If you want to excel in anything, it’s the people who can learn the fastest that rise to the top.
