Why use NED Breaks?

  • They increase blood flow to the brain
  • Physical activity and human connection excite the production of Dopamine and other beneficial neurotransmitters
  • These excitatory neurotransmitters will build strong dendritic connections through Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factors (BDNF = Miracle Grow for the Brain), increasing memory retention and capacity
