Your brain is the control center of your entire life, and just like your heart, it’s always working, even while you sleep.
Which means your brain uses a lot of fuel!
In fact, it only accounts for about 2-3% of your total body weight but it uses roughly 20% of your total energy throughout the day.
That being said, a combination of deep restful sleep and high-quality nutrient-dense food not only helps you get the most out of your training, but it also provides your brain and body the best environment to repair itself.
Fortunately, the same foods that nourish your brain nourish your heart, which means if you focus on improving one, the other will improve too!
So if you're in search of a superhuman brain, you need to ensure that you're consuming nutrient-dense foods throughout the day.
On the flip side, there are a lot of things that can leave you feeling foggy, unfocused and have devastating effects later on in life such as Alzheimer's disease.
To get the most out of your brain you can also include high-quality nootropics into your daily routine.
Nootropics can boost your cognitive abilities such as focus, memory, mood and reaction times.
The fact is that getting plenty of sleep and eating nutrient-dense foods will help you live a long healthy life with a superhuman brain.
This means that your daily habits are incredibly important.
Your habits not only impact your performance in the gym, but also how your body ages over time.
