Episode 42

Dr. Andrew Hill joins us again on Smart Drug Smarts to talk about his recent study conducted at the Alternatives Brain Institute in Los Angeles, measuring the effects of truBrain on some of the quickest minds on Wall Street. The double-blind testing was conducted in conjunction with members of the Sang Lucci trading group in New York and the group’s “brain fingerprints” were taken while they carried out their regular daily tasks on a simulated trading floor. Dr. Hill highlights for us the differences in brains trained for turbo-concentration versus those of the average bear and defines the “nootropic sweet spot.”
