As a target shooter, brain power is key. According to research, your brain function reaches its peak at the point you are taking a shot at the target. However, getting that mental focus that allows for incredible performance is quite elusive for most people. But here is a secret that will change everything: the use of wine! Yes, you read it right; wine has been scientifically proven to dramatically improve brain power which improves the performance of target shooters.
How is it Possible?
To answer this question, there is a need to look at what research has shown. Several studies showed that besides the many components that carry loads of health benefits, there is one flavonoid that boosts the brain: Resveratrol
Now, what exactly do these components do? Resveratrol found in red wine plays the powerful role of boosting blood flow. What an improvement in the blood flow to the brain means is that the brain cells get more nutrients and oxygen and the waste products are cleared out faster allowing the brain cells to attain peak performance. As the brain power increases, you are able to visualize the trajectory of your shooting to a level that hitting the target becomes a walk in the park. It also allows you to attain a level of mental focus that will transform your shooting results.
Additionally, this Resveratrol has been proven to boost the morphology of neurons (brain cells) and improve memory. It is for this reason that it has been credited with the protective abilities against degeneration and Alzheimer’s. However, today its all about being good for target shooters and that is where the focus will remain. The antioxidant properties of this component that is found in the skin of grapes also come into play. Besides the benefits to the rest of the body, it will help protect the brain cells from being damaged by free oxygen radicals. That allows you to maintain a peak brainpower and mental focus even as the years go by
What Now, More Wine? The answer is NO You need to only take the right amount. Excessive consumption will actually be detrimental to your abilities. And looking at prices, you will realize that too much wine is not only detrimental to your health but also to your pockets. You will need to do a maximum of half a glass of red wine within a day. If you have been doing a lot of it then it may be about time you started cutting down on your intake. And remember, Resveratrol is only found in red wine.
Conclusion The discovery that wine, through its Resveratrol component, boosts brain power and mental focus resulted in not only a lot of debates but also more studies. So, if you want to perform better at target shooting, you may need to make some good wine a part of your regular schedule. The only caution is that you need to avoid drinking too much because it becomes harmful to both your brain and health in general. Keep your intake in the right quantities and enjoy that boost to your brain.
