    There are many brain supplements that can boost your brain power
    - Ginkgo Biloba
    - Fish Oil
    - Grape Seed Extract
    - Piracetam
    - Lecithin
    - Gingseng
    To improve your brain power PERMANANTLY by regrowing brain cells, I suggest taking
    - ALCAR (Acetyl-L-Carnitine)
    - Hericium (Lion's Mane Mushroom) as powder in pills

    While taking these supplements, I suggest undergoing rigorous thinking.
    Brain cell growth require the proper nutrition + NGF (Nerve growth factors) AND Stimulation (Thinking)

    I suggest reading multiple non-fiction books a week while on Hericium and ALCAR

    Lecithin is supposed to be good for your concentration and I have tried it and it seemed to work a little. They say, doing puzzles of any kind keeps you sharp, or at least I have heard that before.

    If you are older than 12 years old it's too late to increase your IQ but not too late to increase your knowledge.

    There are some great books now - I think they are called Brainquest books that help anyone develop their knowledge and brain usage capacity.

    Read a lot of books.  Issac Asmiov has some pretty powerful reads.  Also, read a lot of the hubs here, especially in the philosophy section and try to understand what they're talking about.

    I think that IQ, if the concept has any meaning at all, can't really be increased.  Intelligence, you are basically born with.  Knowledge can be acquired, but not intelligence.  In my mind, asking what you can do to increase your IQ is like asking what you can do to make yourself taller.  You might be able to do something to increase your score on the test, but that doesn't change what the test actually measures.  So maybe there's an equivalent for an IQ test of wearing 3 inch stiletto heels, but it won't make you smarter, it'll just make you look smarter, according to the test.
