Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation to Improve Your Brain

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a type of neurostimulation that uses a low electric current through electrodes targeted on some areas of the brain. It serves as an alternative to chemical stimulants (like caffeine, sugar, and others). It is considered safe for healthy individuals (18 years of age and older) and an effective method to stimulate the brain.

This technology is backed by the scientific research, with many papers published on the topic. 

In the market, there is now the LIFTiD tDCS device, which is portable, wireless, and can be used at home for a neurostimulation session of 20 minutes. The expected results are an increase in attention, focus, and alertness without the use of chemicals. It is recommended for video gamers, students, working professionals, musicians, and athletes that want to elevate performance. It features a rechargeable long-lasting lithium-ion battery, and the sessions of 1.2 mA can be done while sitting, standing, walking, or stretching.

The Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation technology is also known to work by increasing blood flow, enhancing neurotransmitter release, and activating neurons, which will all lead to alterations in brain function. Medical assistance is recommended as side effects might happen. 

This device is a great alternative for recent times where there is a high demand for productivity and concentration for work or studies done remotely from home, so there will be an improvement of increasing focus, attention, brain fog, and fatigue.
