Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you could easily make yourself more intelligent just by taking one simple pill? This has now become a reality with a recent discovery called Brain Boosters. Brain Boosters have the possibility of positively impacting the world, despite some ethical concerns.

With such a powerful discovery, there is a great responsibility for how it should be handled in society. First of all, many tests were done in order to make sure Brain Boosters are safe. Both short term and long term side effects
