Introducing Brain Initiative
Technology has helped many people improve their physical fitness. Wearables and fitness apps have us recording runs, tracking steps and counting calories. As tech paves the way for physical fitness, it is time to consider tech’s impact on brain health and cognitive expansion.
How can tech help brain health?
We are proud to introduce Brain Initiative powered by Team Sherzai. Brain Initiative is a customizable brain health program for both individuals and organizations. With the help of technology and credible, neurological research, users are empowered to improve their brain health by making better lifestyle choices and enhancing their cognitive capacity.
Brain Initiative consists of NEURO Academy and Brain XQ. NEURO Academy is a two-month online course geared towards caregivers, wellness enthusiasts and leaders.

Brain health and personal lifestyle factors are crucial to success in the workplace. People with healthy brains tend to be happier and more productive. With technology being a central aspect of both our personal lives and careers, it can often be overlooked as a useful tool to keep our brains healthy and active. At Brain Initiative, we believe everyone’s brain can benefit from a more comprehensive, yet personalized approach. We understand the role technology can have in helping us make the appropriate adjustments to achieve optimal mind and body efficiency.
