How to gain the ability to concentrate?
We all have periods when we need a high mental concentration. In the first place it’s a crunch time at work, when you must to solve, analyze, estimate thousands of problems at the same time. In those days, our brain works so hard, as a fighter in the ring, so it needs a “high feeding” and enough oxygen.
In addition to glucose for neural tissue, brain, like a car engine, needs an energy, which occur in the organism in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). When you work hard, the energy resources can be quickly wasted, and the rate of ATP synthesis will not correspond to the rate of its consumption. This situation can turn into the nervous exhaustion – retardation, apathy, inability to even do anything.
How can you supply an energy deficit? This question should be addressed to chess players or professional card players. Who, if not them, knows what it takes to spend hours in mental stress with a maximum concentration, when any mistake can cost you the victory. For maintaining of the intellectual tone professionals take nootropics, which improve the energy supplying of neurons. Drugs contained an amino acid composition, having a significant effect and high security level, gave themselves a good account. We’ll demonstrate their mechanism of action with an example of Biotredin, which contains essential amino acid L-threonine and pyridoxine. In the organism it forms the amino acid glycine and acetaldehyde, which increase the synthesis of ATP and oxygen consumption. The final products of metabolism are carbon dioxide and water, which aren’t toxic. Thus, the amino acid components improve the condition of neurons and promote a resistance of the brain to overwork without toxic effects. Many will just brush off the necessity for effective metabolic support, but do not forget that in neglected cases of mental overwork massive loss of neurons, leading to a stroke, is not excluded.
