BIOptimizers - Awesome Health Podcast

Jun 30, 2022

Nootropics are any natural or synthetic substance that may have a positive impact on mental skills. Greg Gostincar, a certified brain health professional, has devoted his life to helping health-conscious professionals achieve peak brain and mental performance by using effective science-based techniques combined with the power of nature.

Everyone can benefit from nootropics, though everyone responds to them in different ways – it’s not a one-formula fits-all scenario.

Things you’ll learn in this episode:

  • The benefits of nootropics
  • Different types of nootropics
  • Compounds that help the supplement with a better delivery to the brain matter
  • How to tell the difference between a good and bad product for you
  • Other tools outside of nootropics that can help
  • The future of the brain optimization industry

Brain Habits

Our habits in our daily life determine how our brain functions. Greg said, “It was my lifestyle that made things problematic.” But it’s always possible to improve both our habits and our brain optimization. “Those simple, simple hacks had the biggest impact on me.”

Some of these simple hacks work hand in hand with the supplements that Greg researches and works with. Optimizing sleep, light, nutrition, exercise, and brain games are enhanced by the nootropics stack that can be applied to individuals.

“I noticed people mainly search for shortcuts and pills. That’s true for the majority of people. But you know how important it is to optimize your lifestyle, not just take the right supplements. I think both those things go hand in had, so the idea is to have this system in place and then give those personalized plans with specific hacks that can optimize different brain regions or can help people optimize if they have any kind of problems. We really wanted to understand to get the whole picture before we give any recommendations.”

Prevention of cognitive decline is something you can do now, and we can motivate that change before it’s too late.

As you listen to Wade and Greg, be open, and you might find you can unlock even more potential within your brain.
