The second smartest man in the world has a pill concoction that he says boosts his brain function enough to make him even smarter, and delay brain aging. A score over 160 in the intelligence quotient (IQ), is considered genius. Rick Rosner has an IQ of 192; compare that to the average IQ of 100 and it makes sense why he’s listed in the World Genius Directory.  

“I’ve taken way, way too many IQ tests — more than 30 — and on more than 20 of them, I’ve gotten the highest score ever, making me kind of the pre-2009 Tiger Woods of IQ tests,” Rosner told Business Insider. "According to rankings compiled by the World Genius Directory, only one other person has ever gotten a higher score on an adult, high-end IQ test.”

Rosner was given an IQ test while he was still in kindergarten, and has since then been labeled a genius. He grew up to become a health conscious adult and follows a strict regimen of brain boosting pills — most of them have been supported by research studies, doctors, and health experts. He starts each day taking 50 various pills before he even eats his breakfast. His morning cocktail "makes my brain work better," Rosner said. By preventing or slowing the brain’s inevitable aging process, it's "sort of like being smarter.”

His colorful resume includes everything from being a comedic writer to a bouncer, and even a stripper, but despite his genius label he is no doctor, he said. Rosner is currently writing his memoir, endearingly titled “Dumbass Genius,” in addition to working on figuring out the theory of the universe. He takes everything from omega-3 fish oil capsules — they've been found to fight Alzheimer’s — to Astragalus, which may help stop telomeres from shortening as we age. Telomeres are like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces, but they sit at the end of chromosomes. They stop chromosomes from fraying, which is key, considering chromosomes carry important genetic information. Each pill has a purpose, and it doesn’t take a genius to research supplements and find the ones right for your body and health needs.
