Taking 2 Edge capsules a day will help you with your focus and concentration.
Supplements aren't short term answers, though, and aren't a replacement for a healthy, balanced approach to life. While you'll get an immediate energy burst with Edge (so it's ideal to take 30 minutes before activity) to get sustained improvements in your mental performance is going to take three months of consistently taking it.
The other things we could do to improve our memory, enhance our mental performance, and boost our brainpower include:
Get rid of the distractions – most of us know what we're distracted most easily by. Turn off email and social media notifications, hide your phone and minimise the number of tabs open on your laptop that don't relate to the task you're doing. For some people, it can be about finding a different location to work in, or sticking headphones in and having the right music or complete silence.
Ditch the multi-tasking – dipping in and out of tasks doesn't necessarily make us more productive. According to a University of California, Irvine study, it takes us over 23 minutes to get back to a task after we've been distracted. We might think that checking our social media is a distraction and not the same as switching to another work task. But it looks like it means that neither task is really getting our complete focus and attention. Get one done, move on.
Get a good night's sleep – getting the right amount of sleep helps complete the entire cycle of nocturnal processes that help your body and brain function at their best when you're awake. You might think you can get by on just a few hours, but it's really a false economy. Working memory, how quickly you process information and your reaction times all suffer. We all know it's not the best way to set ourselves up for the day ahead. Resist the box set and stop the scrolling. Tomorrow, you'll be pleased you did.
Get active – in general, anything that's good for our hearts is good for our brains. Staying fit and getting plenty of aerobic exercise is the top suggestion from many neurologists to keep our brains healthy.
Get our diets in shape – maintaining a balanced diet plays an important part in top to toe health and wellness. In recent research, only a third of us consider the impact of our diet on our brain health. The National Diet & Nutrition Survey found nutritional deficits across the board. Supplements can help to plug some of the gaps, but fuelling your body with the best real food has to be a good daily target.
Keep your mind active – when you're shattered after a long day at work or a heavy workout, the last thing you might feel like doing is loading your brain with more activity. But our brains thrive on new stimuli, which is why TV can leave you feeling a bit brain dead and learning a new skill can be an energy boost. From learning something practical or just cooking a new recipe, doing a puzzle or talking to friends, the brain can take something positive out of all of them. Active minds are healthier minds, just like active bodies.
