Want to be smarter in 15 minutes?

Bradley Cooper's latest movie "Limitless" is a fictional story about a pill that improves brain functionality... with mortal consequences. 
Fortunately, a chemical that boosts brain power does exist, with a significantly less cataclysmic after-affect. 
To increase the effectiveness of your brain functionality, all you have to do is drink some caffeine! 
A cup of coffee or tea is all it takes-- studies show that caffeine increases production of the hormone norepinephrine, which acts like adrenaline for your brain. By revving up your central nervous system, the consumption of caffeine improves your attention span and problem solving abilities.
The only peril to avoid with coffee? Make sure to cap yourself at about 2 cups... caffeine induced jitters can ruin that newly achieved focus!
