“Include memory techniques and education at all levels.”
— Dr. Boris Konrad

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we have a special treat, as we are actually joined by a neuroscientist researcher and memory competitor. In fact, this is someone whose work we have been quoting for many years, improving the scientific validity for everything that we do in SuperHuman Academy.

In case you've been wondering, our guest today is Dr. Boris Konrad. In the episode, Dr. Konrad talked about the research and he shared with us some interesting and surprising things that even I didn't know about mnemonic techniques and the incredible benefits that they can offer for your brain health and your life.

I really enjoyed this episode, and I'm sure you are going to as well!

    Great interview with Dr. Greg Wells! He mentioned a doctor from Colorado around the 42:30 point of the podcast, discussing turmeric and black pepper. I couldn’t make out the doctor’s name. Can you provide me with his full name and maybe his website or contact info. Interested in his products.

    Maybe oarts of the things he has to share are right, maybe not. If I look at him which impact his nurturing and living style has on himself I see a very old looking man! He is year 1973!! That is not old and he looks definitly much older!! If I would not know his birthyear I would guess that he is in his mid-60ies!! A bit concering for someone who claims his lifestyle is suitable for a long life, isn’t it?
