Help me, Dr. Super-food!

Have you ever feel very sleepy in classroom? And you feel like your teacher/lecturer/tutor 'mumbling' the blablabla infront? You're not interested? Nahhh~ *sigh

This happens because your brain lost connection. You like to eat? Hah, so good because this is the time for you to try the super-duper-food that can enhance your brain's connection! 

Remember that there's no magic tablet to boost IQ or make you smarter 

1. Caffeine "can make you more alert and concentrate"
Caffeine can found in coffee, chocolate and energy drinks.

Overdo drinking any type of caffeine can make you uncomfortable.
2. Sugar "Enhance alertness"

glucose: your body will automatically metabolizes from the sugars and carbohydrates you eat

3. Fish. "The really brain food".
Rich in omega-3 fatty acid for brain functional and development. Also always good for those who suffer from the slower mental decline; especially as we get older
