Think of the body as a complex machine designed for the task of living. Like any other machine, how well it performs depends on how efficiently it can convert inputs into outputs. Altering these two factors can optimize performance. Nootropic supplements and ketogenic dieting are two of the best ways to do this, but instead of only using one or the other, the two strategies can be combined to achieve maximum human performance.View full article →
Hello and welcome to 2017 Optimoz Legends! Let’s not make this a “ground hog year”…..new and exciting times are on the horizon. So let us be a part of the change!
What is really exciting me right now is the concept of Ketosis…yes…it has been around for quite a while but it is finally starting to gain some traction in the mainstream media…it just makes so much sense it kind of seems too simple. Yet again, I see the idea of eating too many carbohydrates as a huge mistake. As Jack Kruse says, we should eat our carbs during long light cycles such as Summer. However, during Winter is NOT the time to be loading up on carbs!!! That’s where our high fat, low- carb diet is essential. We are not ancestrally geared to burn carbs in Winter. And we have not yet evolved to do so.View full article →

The stress response is a powerful force that can be beneficial or harmful, depending on the circumstances. This article will explain the science behind beneficial stress, who benefits from it, and how to achieve it naturally.
Performers call it ‘the zone,’ that state of complete focus where distractions disappear, senses sharpen, and performance is optimised. The zone is a real thing, and to the scientific community, this mind state is called eustress–beneficial stress–or flow.View full article →
To obtain the state of deep focus known as “flow,” distractions must be removed. We can easily make tweaks to our environment to minimise distractions while adding elements to induce the immersive flow state.

“Even though it is common knowledge, it never ceases to amaze me that all the richness of our mental life - all our feelings, our emotions, our thoughts, our ambitions, our love lives, our religious sentiments and even what each of us regards as his or her own intimate private self - is simply the activity of these little specks of jelly in our heads, in our brains. There is nothing else.” - V.S. Ramachandran
