There are three chemicals and molecules inside your body right now that can negatively affect male brain performance. But the good news is, as damaging as these chemicals and molecules can be towards your brain health and overall performance, it’s actually really easy to diminish them and boost your brain function as a man so you’re always at the top of your game.
In this article I’m going to reveal what these three chemicals and molecules are and how you can shrink their effects in just a few seconds each morning.
Cortisol is your body’s stress hormone. Having a little bit of it pulsing through your veins when you’re at the gym or if you need to protect your family from some kind of threat, can be beneficial.
However, a problem occurs when cortisol levels are elevated for too long.
Neuroscientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that chronic stress triggers long-term changes in brain structure and function. In a series of groundbreaking studies, published in the journal, Molecular Psychiatry, Daniela Kaufer, UC Berkeley associate professor of integrative biology, and her colleagues found that chronic stress and elevated levels of cortisol can generate an overproduction of myelin-producing cells and fewer neurons than normal.
Kaufer’s team studied the hippocampus area of the brain (which regulates memory and emotions) and found that it shrinks under extended periods of stress.
On top of that, cortisol is believed to create a “domino effect” in the brain that hardwires pathways between the hippocampus and the amygdala in a way that creates a cycle where the brain becomes predisposed to a constant state of fight-or-flight.
When that happens, you experience brain fog, have trouble focusing, have difficult time recalling memories and all-in-all become more distracted and scatter-brained.
The good news is, studies show you can actually improve the structure of your brain over time so that it doesn’t default to negative (and unnecessary) stress for the rest of your life. I’ll show you a simple way to do that at the bottom of this article.
- Free Radicals
Free radicals are a group of molecules in the body that cause a process called oxidative stress on cells. If you’ve ever taken a few bites of an apple and let it sit out on the counter until it turns brown — that process of deterioration is oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
The same kind of process happens with age in the brain, too. Free radicals attack brain cells, which causes oxidative damage. In fact, the brain in particular, is uniquely susceptible to oxidative stress damage.
Researchers from one study, published in Clinics in Geratric Medicine, say, “Although other factors may be involved in the cascade of damaging effects in the brain, the key role of free radicals in this process cannot be underestimated. Free radicals play a critical role in cell damage in the aged brain.”
With that said, there is a group of brain-boosting chemicals that you can get more of through your diet called antioxidants. Antioxidants protect against memory loss and cognitive decline with aging (which can happen as early as 25-years old).
I’ll show you the fastest and easiest way to get more brain-specific antioxidants into your diet in the “Now What” section of this article.
Now more than ever men are battling “estrogen dominance.”
Estrogen dominance is when men have more estrogen in their body than they should. With all of the estrogenic hormones in our food, estrogenic chemicals in plastics, hygiene products and even drinking water, estrogen levels are increasing and testosterone levels are decreasing. If you want to learn more about estrogen contamination, I’ve written about it here.
With that said, when men have high estrogen levels, it negatively affects brain performance.
According to studies, one of the common symptoms that a man has low testosterone and above normal estrogen is brain fog, fatigue and mood swings — all of which affect cognitive performance. Plus, hormonal imbalances can lead to symptoms of depression and anxiety, which also makes it challenging to concentrate on work and perform your best at any given task.
For that reason, one of the best ways to improve brain performance in men is to stabilize estrogen levels, block excessive estrogen production and boost testosterone levels. Check out the following section to find out how to do that quickly and easily.
Alright man, so now that you know cortisol, free radicals and high amounts of estrogen can have a negative effect on your brain performance, I want to give you a solution that I created to overcome those chemicals and molecules so you can perform your best physically and mentally all day long.
I call it my FOCUS STACK.
The FOCUS STACK is a combination of two of my best selling supplements: Man Greens and Man Brain.
Man Greens is a 100% natural and tasty greens formula that lowers cortisol and estrogen while boosting testosterone levels at the same time.
Man Brain is a natural nootropic formula featuring some of the best brain boosting ingredients on the planet, plus a special blend of antioxidants found in blueberries that’ll eliminate free radicals and protect brain health.
I take both Man Greens and Man Boost in this FOCUS STACK to improve focus, fight cognitive decline that comes with aging and general stress, and to improve my attention span so I get more work done in less time. This stack is a beast for high performers who refuse to settle for anything less than their best. And today I want to give you an opportunity to grab your supply of the FOCUS STACK for 48% off the normal price.
Trust me, man, if you’re serious about taking your performance to the next level, you don’t want to miss out on this one.
You’ll be glad you did,
