If you are like most people then you probably answered “yes” to that question. I mean, who doesn’t want a high performance brain?

A high performance brain is not only important for life in general but it is also extremely important for our training. One of the things I stress with my clients is the need to be mentally present and focused while training. The big difference between real training and just “working out” is the ability to focus the mind, which is an important characteristic of a high performance brain.

Also known as Focused Practice, your ability to engage your brain in this way is the real secret to improvement. Just doing something doesn’t make you better, it is the ability to focus your practice time that makes you better. Mindlessly pounding out reps and intervals doesn’t work nearly as well.

Once you get your brain engaged in the process and able to focus better you start to see much better results both in the gym and on the trail. Unfortunately, though, the ability to truly focus and be present with what you are doing isn’t as easy as it sounds. First, it takes practice and patience, two things our “give it to me now” society doesn’t seem to value.

But while there is no getting around the time it takes to develop and hone your awareness and focus there is something you can do to help speed up and support the process. Namely, we can give our brains the support they need to perform at a high level all day long.

While we rarely think about our brain needing nourishment, the truth is that it burns through a lot of raw materials while carrying out the countless tasks we ask of it every day. This means that you need to make sure that your brain has the raw materials it needs to function optimally and stay focused.

Most of us recognize the need to use supplementation for the rest of our body but few of us think about doing it for our brains. If your brain is “starving” and lacking something it needs to function optimally then it is much harder to have the type of drive and focus you need to get the most out of your training.

One of the exciting frontiers in supplementation today are a class of nutrients known as nootropics. They work in the brain itself by targeting vital areas of neurotransmission. In other words, these nutrients can help give your brain what it needs to improve focus, mental drive and memory.

It’s like taking vitamins for your brain, and much like the vitamins your take for the rest of your body not all nootropics supplements are created equal. Some companies have done a much better job than others at creating innovative, top quality products and it is those products you want to seek out and use.

While I’ve known about nootropics for some time now and have tried a few along the way I was never very impressed with the results, which is why I’ve never recommended them before. But over the last year or so I’ve been hearing more and more about some of the new generation of brain boosting supplements and so I wanted to give them a shot myself.

After researching a lot of different supplements in this category I found Alpha BRAIN by ONNIT supplements. Alpha BRAIN is a complete, balanced nootropic created from scientifically tested Earth grown ingredients to specifically activate vital areas of neurotransmission. This is a nutrient combination for your brain that has clinically demonstrated improvements in verbal memory and executive function, helping you to achieve greater focus, memory, and mental clarity.

I’ve been using Alpha BRAIN for about a month now and while I usually like to have a bit more time with a supplement before recommending to my readers, two things happened that made me speed up the process.

The first thing is that I’m already very impressed with the results from it. I can tell that I have much better focus and mental drive, especially later in the day. I’m able to stay sharp and focused all day instead of suffering through the last half of the day pounding coffee and trying to avoid stuff that makes me think too hard.

I’ve also noticed a difference in my ability to focus on the bike and in the gym. My ability to get into the zone faster and stay there more consistently has improved, especially if I’m riding or training later in the day when I’m usually a bit foggy-headed from the rest of the days demands.

So, given my results so far I feel pretty confident in recommending that anyone who is looking for something to help them improve their focus, mental drive and memory give ALPHA Brain a try. If you’ve never tried a nootropic supplement before then this is a great way to see if they’ll work for you.

The second thing that has happened is that ONNIT is having a sale through Friday where you can get 12% off of all of their products, including ALPHA Brain.
