To us, studying for a subject is just like any other forms of skills training such as sports training, learning musical instruments, etc. All these skills require regular practices and training so that the body gets adapted to the increasing intensity and builds up stamina for longer duration of the activities.
From this point of view, studying is no different. Instead of training muscles, we are actually training the brain to be more responsive to questions, retrieving information in a shorter period of time and formulating solutions with greater precision and speed. All these trainings are especially crucial in examinations when students are under tremendous pressure to meet all the criteria under strict timing.
Students nowadays face tremendous pressure in school: Longer hours of studies, increasing homework, additional projects and Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs). To cope with all these, students need the fuel for their brains to stay focused and absorb what is being taught during classes. During revision for examinations, the need for the right fuel is even more important to ensure the brain can carry out its functions well in order for students to achieve their goals for their revision and ultimately, perform better during examinations.
In order to ensure these functions can be carried out smoothly, the brain must have a constant supply of nutrients and oxygen to it. The oxygen intake for brain is actually TWENTY PERCENT of the whole body’s oxygen consumption. So it is important to keep the brain supplied with enough oxygen and along with it, the necessary nutrients for the brain to function well. Here we recommend three types of super brain food:
Proper nutrients provide the fuels for the brain to consume to maintain a high activity level for studying and examinations. To complement the nutrients, staying well hydrated is crucial to sustaining proper cerebral activities, thus allowing students to remain mentally sharp and efficient during lessons. This will ensure that students can learn more with less time required. For example, one student may need only two hours instead of the normal 4 hours, due to the increase in efficiency in mental capacity. As a result, students are able to achieve more with well-structured learning and diet.
Study is not just restricted to during school curriculum. With proper diet, discipline and extra-curricular push, students can achieve greater performance in a more efficient and fruitful way.
