I wanted to ask if any of you have supplements or exercises that you use / leverage specifically for mental performance and cognitive function. I think I probably try to cover the basics, but I wanted to see what all is out there. Any specifics vitamins or nutrient blend, any of the cognitive apps, any brain-body exercises, any journal tools or guides? Thanks in advance!

My normal:
Multivitamin & Fish Oil
Overall healthy foods
Regular Exercise
Meditation & good sleep
*Most of these I am ok overall, but really trying to make them improve more and make true routine and habit... a work in progress, but I realize I need to continue to work on these for peak overall performance (mental and physical), there are also many other great insights/comments in my previous posts that I have taken in and trying to incorporate as well.

For mental performance a healthy nootropic blend has its place in my rotation. Controlled labs brain wash and sns focus xt are my favorites. Not big into the other stuff but I know it’s of some benefit.

Conditioning work (stuff like lunges, band work etc..stuff you don't want to do) until I feel almost sick a couple of times a week as made me mentally stronger and physically prepared to be injury free for heavy work (I am a powerlifter). I make sure to raise the bar weekly and introduce whatever exercises are needed to improve my weak points. Whatever I don't want to do is exactly what I have to do and that makes me mentally stronger.

Meditation, naps, good food, daily veggies, generally being good to myself.
(btw, I take the following all year around)
Supplements: Vector, Folidrone and BMP
Support: Probiotic (Gut Health), Vitamin D 5000iu, ZMK
Pre-workout homeade:
Glutamine
Citrulline
Agmatine
Glycerpump
Potassium Nitrate
Aminos(BLR)
Choline
