Dr. Scott Sherr: How Nicotine and Methylene Blue Can Optimize Brain Function and Health


Imagine a world where using Nicotine as a brain stimulant had positive effects on our overall cognitive health. Sounds crazy right? Well the research has been done and proven that using a minuscule amount of Nicotine, alongside Methylene Blue, can push us to reach our greatest potential.

In this episode of the Complete Human podcast, we’ll be talking about brain health, brain stimulation and the elements of optimizing brain function with Dr. Scott Sherr.

Plus, Dr. Scott also explains how  pharmaceutical grade Nicotine, given in small doses, improves our focus, memory and tension as it is a neuroprotective stimulant. He then explains the studies done on Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s patients and how nicotine helped with their cognitive tension.
