Are you ready?
We are on a mission to create sustainable, peak performance nutrition ready for Mars colonization.
Mission 1: Improve cognitive performance with BrainXP nootropic supplement designed to support your brain activity and health.
Review research from the best experts in the world and put this knowledge into practice. Check out our Science section for articles, videos, and experiments.
Raise awareness about the importance of sustainable food for Earth (and Mars). Join our campaign #FastForEarth in 2017 to show your support.
Step by step, we are going to reach the Red Planet, Mars. Advances in technology push humanity forward further and faster than ever before.
At Red Planet Nutrition we create sustainable, peak performance nutrition ready for Mars colonization.
It is a complex, multi-mission process, which requires all of us to participate. Join the mission!
Mission 1: Get smarter
In the 21st century we are constantly under pressure to be mentally sharp.
We compete for jobs and in eSports arenas. We take tests and try to impress people with knowledge and intelligence.
Our nootropic supplement, BrainXP, was designed to help you learn faster and work smarter by providing your brain with the right nutrients.
Your mission starts now.

Great conversation opener: ‘I’m a weekday vegetarian flexitarian’. ‘A what?’ Try that, see what response you’ll get. And even better, actually become a weekday vegetarian flexitarian. I think the concept of a weekday vegetarian is easy enough to understand, you’re a vegetarian Monday to Friday, and a carnivore on weekends. ‘Flexitarian’ can be more confusing, cause[…]
Food production is not sustainable (1). Agriculture uses 38% of the world’s total land area and is responsible for 70% of global freshwater consumption. This has prompted some commentators to argue that in order to promote sustainability we need to change how we behave. Other experts are more focused on technological innovations, such as aquaponics.[…]
Right now the goal of SpaceX is to colonise Mars. This is the nearest planet that we could feasibly travel to and inhabit. Soon our technological capabilities will allow us to travel to, and live on, the red planet in a cost-efficient and sustainable way. It will be science fiction made reality (1). But there is[…]
The global population is set to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, with most of the growth taking place in developing countries (1). The United States Department of Agriculture says the number of hungry (‘food insecure’) people in sub-Saharan Africa will rise by a third (2). In order to tackle the issue of food scarcity, the FAO claims[…]
Terraforming Mars involves changing the surface and climate of the planet to make large areas hospitable to humans. There are many reasons why permanent human habitation on Mars is being planned for: population growth, demand for resources, and runaway climate change. Of course, if and when we terraform Mars, it would be ludicrous to repeat[…]
Colonising Mars involves many challenges. While SpaceX is figuring out how to get to Mars in a sustainable and cost efficient way, there are also many psychological obstacles that astronauts will have to face when travelling to, and living on, the red planet. Some of these issues are being addressed, such as the problem of[…]
Weekday vegetarian, some people get angry when they hear this phrase. Why? I don’t really know or understand, but I’m guessing it’s because they see life as a 0-1 kind of situation, it’s either black or white. You can’t be a vegetarian and a carnivore at the same time. Or can you? Life isn’t black[…]
An article in The Guardian claimed that modafinil (marketed as Provigil) is the world’s safest smart drug (1). A systematic review published in European Neuropsychopharmacology found that modafinil does in fact enhance cognition, and it is safe in the short-term, with few side-effects and no addictive properties (2). This drug – available on the NHS as a[…]
What is a concussion? A concussion (or Minor Traumatic Brain Injury) is a temporary loss of normal brain function caused by quick movements or impacts to the head, neck or face, leading to bruising and missed neuronal connections within the brain. Although I’m speaking more specifically to sports-related injuries, concussions can also result from other[…]
‘Menu fatigue’, simply put, is getting bored with what you’re eating, because you’re eating the same food too often. Soldiers in the army have complained about monotonous meals (1). But it’s also a problem for astronauts. Eating ‘space food’ every day for months, or even years, is bound to get boring (2). Improvements Astronauts today[…]
The idea of eating insects can seem a bit unappealing if you’ve been brought up with a Western diet. We do eat them for novelty (1) or inadvertently as food colouring (2). However, insect-eating (known as entomophagy, 3) is common to many cultures across the world. Humans have been eating insects from prehistoric times to the[…]
The Mars Farm Odyssey is an international consortium of like minds (1). They are trying to find solutions to space farming, so that food can be grown on Mars. The alternative is shipping food to Mars, which is just not sustainable – it would cost nearly $1bn a year per person. The amount of resources[…]
