We’re pumped for Comic-Con International Comments Off on We’re pumped for Comic-Con International 268,494

With Comic-Con around the corner, we cannot help but think about all the great things that are coming to television and comics this year. Everything about the event has us itching to jet down to San Diego, and we are excited to tell you everything we know about the event so far.

Getting tickets

We all know that getting a ticket for Comic-con is next to impossible. Unless you are as vigilant as a fox, or you have a wad of cash saved away, you stand no chance of attending the largest gathering of nerds on the planet. Ticket buying is a brutal sport, but have no fear, Comic-con international has promised to shake things up a little bit next year. Ticket or badge procurement will prove to be slightly better next year. Although badges are already sold out this year, you can register in advance for Comic-con next year and beat everybody else to it.

What is coming to comic con this year?

Comic-con is notoriously known for keeping a tight lid on its itinerary until a few days before the event. Thankfully, we are well past the waiting date, and we can give you a rough guess of who is coming to comic con and what to expect from the event as a whole.

The new costumes

A lot of new characters have been added to television and comic books this past year, and we are glad to see how the world reacts to the new foray of great entertainment and make it into jaw-dropping costumes that will literarily knock your socks off. We will be glad to see how iconic characters like Tony stark, Captain Marvel and Professor Hulk will be brought to life with the help of tailoring, dedication, and a little bit of ingenuity. In our opinion, the costumes are what comic con is really about.

 The Official Schedule

It is practically impossible to cover everything that is coming to comic con this year, but I will try to stick to the most anticipated events and panels and brush over everything else.

Warner Bros Hit us with the premiere of some of the most anticipated shows of the year

Warner Bros make good on their promise and premiere what we believe to be one of the most important statements of femininity. “Batwoman” is set to premiere on Wednesday, July 17 along with Pennyworth- Alfred origin story so to speak. The premieres are reserved for comic con goers alone, and they promise to be absolutely fantastic from the trailers and the interviews that we have seen so far. The premieres are to be viewed in Ballroom 20 and will be shortly followed by other addition to the DC television universe. Harley Quinn- the animated series and “Teen Titan GO!” are primed to take the stage not long after the headliners.

How a simple detox can boost brainpower Comments Off on How a simple detox can boost brainpower 193,575

You know that one person who’s always talking about the latest cleanse or trendy detox and how “life-changing” it is. It’s almost guaranteed that within a few days, they’ll be on to the next one. Who doesn’t want to lose weight, improve endurance, and purge toxins? It’s not surprising to see short term physical benefits from detox, but often not mentioned are the mental health and cognitive performance benefits also gained from a proper detox. Mental health and brainpower benefits are significant.

Anxiety. Insomnia. Depression. Dementia. Eating disorders. Even Alzheimer’s is on the rise. While going on a short term cleanse or detox to help treat any disorder might seem counterintuitive, restoring your body to health both mentally and physically can drastically boost your mood and overall disposition. The glow of positivity from improved self-image helps interpersonal relationships as well.

Is a detox right for me?

Grow new brain cells

  • Most detox diets are significantly low in calories which may help boost Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). This chemical signal in the brain promotes new cellular growth.
  • As a result, it may lead to a number of mental health benefits including improved brain health and functioning, as well as to help stave off mental illnesses. There are some great BDNF studies available online.

Enhance focus and concentration

  • Another benefit one can attain from slightly restricting calories during a detox is the increase in focus. This is thought to come from a mechanism known as “food-seeking behavior.”
  • The mechanism involved has to do with a rise in hormone production. Dopamine, adrenaline, and cortisol boost focus and reduce distractions. Along with helping to block out distractions, a detox can also help keep your mind focused on tasks. This can help boost productivity in an academic setting or in the workplace, as well as helping to accomplish tasks at home that require efficiency and critical thinking. Additionally, it also may help improve focus and intensity during sports and other physical activities.
  • Certain supplements called nootropics help boost brain function even further by promoting increased blood circulation, stimulation of the central nervous system, and stimulating new brain pathways.

Increase blood flow to the brain

  • Detox diets can boost brainpower through PGC-1-Alpha. This multi-faceted signal assists in a wide range of bodily functions including increased blood flow to the brain improved blood circulation and supplied nutrients and oxygen.
  • This effect is quite beneficial to cognitive health.

Boost mood and good vibes

  • High levels of vitamins and minerals consumed in certain detox treatments boost mood and good vibes by producing serotonin and dopamine.
  • Processed foods, refined sugar, and other food-like products may cause mood swings, feelings of lethargy, energy crashes, and other unpleasant symptoms that may lead to malnutrition.
  • Nutrient deficiencies should be addressed in order to promote overall healthy body function.

No more brain fog!

Improve brainpower, cognitive function, and problem-solving skills

  • This should come as no surprise. High-nutrient, low-calorie foods can greatly improve cognitive functioning.
  • Eliminating nutrient-deficient foods will lift “brain fog” caused by poor diets.
  • Clearer thought processes and faster decision-making skills may be felt almost immediately after commencing a detox.

Improve brain-signaling

  • Hydration is always important. And increasing water intake is usually an aspect of many detox plans. Proper hydration enhances overall health, and greater hydration levels can lead to improved brain-signaling.
  • It goes without saying that water is important for all living things, and it’s especially true for living organisms that are made up of mostly water. In the human body, 73% of the heart and brain is water. This is why dehydration has a direct effect on cognitive performance.

Prevent mental illness

  • Aside from boosting mood and good vibes, assisting in the growth of new brain cells, and improving cognitive performance, a detox can also help prevent mental illness.
  • Brain matter growth can help prevent illnesses like depression or bipolar disorder from developing.
  • An increase in nutrients can help reduce anger and may help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. With the rise of mental illnesses, it’s worth trying different methods every now and then to see what works best for you.

Prevent cellular breakdown

  • A detox diet can help reduce inflammation in the body. This helps prevent cellular breakdown and promote healthy cells (which, obviously, helps overall health). This is true for all the body’s cells, including those in the brain.
  • Implementing a regular detox may not only help promote the growth of new brain cells but also help protect the cells you have, which can preserve and further boost brain function.
