Any drugs to improve our brain performance significantly?
For example for chess player. Can this drug boost his brain power dramatically?
Thanks a lot.
Eat some fish! Better for your brain than drugs....
I would say cafeine with lots of sugar would do the trick, heridlia. You might want to try harmless things like that and please don't do real drugs like akshar says. Maybe you should search the internet to get some great tips to train your brain or to even boost it for a few hours (for your chess match).
Ritalin...go for it. Not really, but people actually do use it for nonprescribed reasons. Besides just using it for ADHD, there are a lot of college students who take the stuff, because it helps them focus without terrible side effects (I mean, besides the zombification of personality, I guess).
If there was such a drug I think everyone would be using them. But yeah, no such drug exist... or has be made yet.
I don't know of any drugs but if there are any then I am sure they would increase your thinking speed only.
If you are planning to do well in some exam then the best way is to work hard. I can justify this point by the following example:
Suppose you take an exam that is considered with adding numbers, but you have not studied yet what 2 is, so if you start relying on drugs and take some before the exam, you would not be able to solve a question concerned with 2 ( 2+2=? ). Whereas, if you have worked hard enough and you know all the numbers from 0 to 9, and the method to add them, you should be able to solve any problem.
I believe some people have sharper minds because they are gifted. That does not mean that a dull minded person can't have the same power, he only must work hard to get to the same level as the gifted person. Afterall the anatomy of brain is the same for every person. Brain sizes do vary but trust me I have seen smaller heads scoring more than larger heads.
like many have suggested cafien improves memory but at the same it makes you adict.
there is one ayurvedic medicine called bramhi
There are natural dietary supplements, that can be taken without any problems. One of them has been mentioned, Ginko Biloba, and I think Memorex is a mix of different substances. You can also take Gingseng, that is a boost of energy. All these, Ginko Biloba and Gingseng are plants and roots that have been used for centuries in Eastern civilization.
Here in my country you can also find pills with a mix of these, like Memorex:
-Guarana (it's an energy booster, like gingseng)
You can find more information on each vitamine, and elements, and choose the right mix for you.
There are many drugs I know which will increase your memory but I dont know anyone which increases your brain.
