As entrepreneurs we should be looking for any advantage over our competitors that we can get.
One area we should take seriously is nutrients.
The fact is there are all sorts of vitamins, minerals and nutraceuticals that can make us mentally sharper, smarter, more creative and more positive (all attributes of top level entrepreneurs).
Yet very few people realise that we can improve in all these areas by consistently taking the right pills. So today I’m going to explain which nutrients you should take and how they improve your mental abilities.
1. VITAMIN D
Vitally important for brain development in infants, Vitamin D can also be used with great effect by adults to improve their mental functioning.
In particular, Vitamin D has been shown to improve your memory and your problem solving skills – both crucial attributes of a highly effective business person.
2. B COMPLEX
Many people know that taking B complex vitamins can reduce executive stress – reason enough to consume them daily.
But an Oxford University study showed that three of them – B6, B12 and folic acid (B9 also) – helped prevent mental decline, brain atrophy, brain shrinkage, and improve mental functioning.
3. FISH OIL
Much has been written about the power of fish oil to improve your overall physical health, but there’s been less discussion about the mental benefits.
Fish oil is arguably the most important nutrient an entrepreneur can take.
Numerous studies have show it to be equivalent in effect to a variety of pharmaceutical depressants.
A Scottish study showed that regular consumption of fish oil supplements over time also increased IQ.
Other studies have proven it also helps reduce the chances of Alzheimers and generally improves brain function and mood.
The more you look into the powers of fish oil, the more of it you’ll want to take.
This little know nutrient is found in abundance in brain tissue.
It offers a variety of mind benefits including improving cognitive performance, enhancing memory and increasing alertness.
Who wouldn’t like improvements in those areas?
So there you have it. Four powerful nutrients entrepreneurs can take to think better, perform better and make more money.
Try them for a month and see the difference in your performance.
