Remain awake – but how?
Fatigue is often a sign of lack of sleep, incorrect nutrition or overstress. What can you do if you need to stay awake for a long time? nao® brain provides you with natural agents which stimulate the brain.
Brain Stimulation in 2019
The secret formula consists of nootropics which are also known as cognitive enhancers and brain boosters. They stimulate brain receptors which help you to stay awake.
What is good for my mind and body?
If you’re tired, try to learn a musical instrument. If you play an instrument, you benefit: German neurological scientists are researching the effect of music on the brain. The result: Making music stimulates neuroplasticity to reconnect neurons. It is important to consciously hear the music. First, music builds “bridges between emotions and mental stimulation,” according to the researcher Tervaniemi.
Enjoying music promotes your long-term concentration, helps you to remain awake, and floods your body with endorphins.
Brain stimulation with concentration exercises works in a similar way. Take the time to read our tips and check your mental fitness with our test.
Where does nao® brain work?
In the sensory nerve system.
Your body perceives stimuli with your eyes, nose and ears, and reports them to our sensory nervous system. We get in touch with our environment through these sense organs and related nerves.
The sensory nerve system in our body also registers our own states, such as sleeping, fatigue, metabolism and hunger.
The motor nervous system
The task of nerve cells is to accept signals and notify other nerve cells. Signals are electrically conveyed through the nerve cells at a top speed of 360 km/hour. The electrical signals are conveyed across a nerve cell to the next one at synapses using messengers. The body’s signal transfers are therefore not based on forwarding electrical signals, but on the effects of biochemical processes.

100% attention, regardless of where and when. Staying awake in today’s lifestyle and everyday activities is a constant challenge. You can defend yourself against fatigue and keep your head into the late hours.
This restores mental
1. Liquid: 2-3 liters of water
The most important basic rule from experts from the Kufstein Technical College is: Drink a lot. The liquid ensures that the body and mind are sufficiently supplied with oxygen, and that they are well-supplied with blood. Drinking more is stimulated at the latest when the first signs of dehydration are noticed, such as fatigue, concentration problems and tiredness.
2. Brain food: Whole wheat bread and nuts instead of dextrose
The brain uses more than a fifth of our total daily energy needs. This cannot be accomplished by simply taking dextrose, as it only gives a short stimulus that lasts for exactly twenty minutes. Then comes a deficit. Steady and high energy supplies are important to be able to work with concentration over a longer period of time. This is provided by complex, long-chain carbohydrates, such as whole wheat bread or oats.
3. Brain food, again: Omega 3 fatty acids are good for the nerves
Energy supplier number 3 are fats. Polyunsaturated fatty acids not only provide power. They also have a positive effect on nerve cell sheaths and their interactions. “For brain function, omega-3 fatty acids, for example, play an important role,” says Angela Clausen, Nutritional Consultant at the North Rhine-Westphalia Consumer Center. “Rapeseed oil or walnut oil, fatty fish, nuts and dried fruits should also be a regular part of one’s nutrition.”
4. Environmental conditions: Note space and light
Concentration can be improved if there is a lot of daylight at your workplace. “Since this is not always possible, one should ensure that there is good lighting at the workplace in some other way,” says Manuela Schade, Neurologist.
5. Brain exercises
The memory trainer and coach, Oliver Geisselhart, recommends imagining processes and tasks in pictures. In order to quickly concentrate on new things, one need only concentrate on illustrated stories. The same also applies to difficult lectures by bosses and colleagues.
Your head position is important if your are sitting during activities, says Geisselhart. If you work a lot at a computer, you should seek balance, says Manuela Schade: “It can be reading, or a creative activity such as painting.”
7. Sport promotes the formation of brain cells.
Sports promotes neurogenesis and increases the number of growth factors in the blood. Physical activities promote the health of the cardiovascular system.
Ensure that you get enough sleep. “Seven hours is not enough for everyone. If you have the feeling that you're really stressed, you should try to sleep longer,” says Manuela Schade. French scientists have found that if one sleeps fewer than seven hours, they not only suffer in their concentration and performance, but their brain matter actually shrinks.
