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.

It will take about six to eight months to reach Mars. It’s a long time to be enclosed in a spacecraft. It makes it difficult to stay healthy and sane in a variety of ways. One of the obstacles involved in the mission to Mars is ensuring that astronauts stay fit in space. Before British[…]
A study published in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution has found that foraging for fruit may be responsible for the evolution of big brains in primates. These findings challenge the long-held theory that primates and humans evolved large brains in order to deal with complex social interactions. A study published in 2012 claimed to prove[…]
Astronauts going on the three-year round trip to Mars are likely to be growing plants in space, as well as on the Red Planet. Back in 2010, out of the 65 foods available for space missions and considered palatable by NASA taste panels, 10 will lose their appeal in a year. They will turn off-colour,[…]
H20 Farm is a company in the UK that is using hydroponics for their fodder production. This company, as well as others (such as US companiy FodderTech), could very well revolutionise farming as we know it. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent to feed[…]
Using smart drugs to boost performance is not without its ethical issues. While some may claim that it’s cheating to take a substance to outcompete others, others will say that there’s actually a moral imperative to do so in some professions; say, in biomedical research or space exploration, where peak performance can benefit humanity in[…]
If you have financial worries, then there are many steps you can take to cut back on costs. It’s important to examine your lifestyle and see if anything you consume or do can be reduced or eliminated completely. You may realise that you can save a tonne of money by quitting smoking (1). Or by cutting[…]
Not only is veganism on the rise, but so are all kinds of different meat substitutes. Many companies seem to be doing a pretty good job at recreating meat, using only plants. Both vegans and meat-eaters are impressed with the taste; surprised, even freaked out, that the ‘beef’ burger they’re eating isn’t actually beef. But[…]
Food waste is a bigger problem than you might think. In 2015, UK households wasted 7.3 million tonnes of food (1). This led to accusations that the government was failing in its goal to reduce food waste. In terms of cost, this translates into £13bn being disposed in food each year, or £470 per household.[…]
Permaculture involves using innovative methods to create sustainable ways of living. Its aim is to develop ecologically harmonious, efficient and productive systems that can be used by anyone, anywhere. The potential of permaculture lies in how resources – water, food, energy and shelter – are carefully used. It is possible to achieve a lot by[…]
We may need to get over our knee-jerk reaction to GMO crops, as they may be necessary to survive on Mars. The study of genetically modifying organisms so that they can survive on spaceships and other planets is called ‘space synthetic biology’ (1). The harsh conditions on Mars present many challenges when it comes to[…]
The price of lab-grown meat has significantly dropped (1). In fact, the price has dropped 30,000 times in less than four years. In 2013, it cost around $325,000 to make a lab-grown burger (2). Now the cost is $11.36 or $44 a pound (3). However, as impressive as this price drop is, lab-grown meat is still[…]
There are many challenges associated with long-duration space travel. There are factors, other than the technological and physiological obstacles, that will determine whether the trip to Mars is a successful one. There are a number of behavioural issues that could affect crew members during the two- or three-year round-trip to Mars (1). The psychological effects[…]
