Are you experiencing a low mood? Lack of concentration? A poor memory? Before getting caught up in the “what ifs” of all of these things, you may want to consider looking into varying supplements that can help you with these issues in a much less invasive way than a doctor would likely encourage you to do!

Taking supplements can be intimidating if you have never done so before. There are numerous kinds of supplements on the market, all of which are formulated for different needs. That’s why we’re here, to give you the rundown on the varying types of brain supplements on the market and which ones you should take pending your health needs!

 

Brain Supplements For Memory Improvement

If you’re experiencing a decrease in your ability to retain information or perhaps forget things you never used to overlook, taking brain supplements to improve your memory could make a significant difference!

Memory improvement supplements are the most popular on the market, but unfortunately, there isn’t too much research to back a lot of the claims being made by big-name companies. However, you could take a few supplements that do have the research to back them up. They include:

  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids – Popular amongst certain fish such as salmon, Omega 3’s are the most well-known memory enhancers. You can take this in the form of a pill or simply by consuming foods that naturally have this substance in them!
  • Vitamin E – Consider adding a vitamin E supplement to your diet via a quick pill in the morning to slow any memory regression and even improve memory in the future.
  • Ginseng – A popular Chinese herb that has been shown to decrease fatigue significantly, ginseng can help improve your ability to remember topics simply by making you more awake and in tune with your surroundings!

 

Brain Supplements For Mood Enhancement

The key to improving your mood is increasing the amount of dopamine your body produces. Dopamine is known as the happiness hormone and is responsible for feeling emotions such as happiness, excitement, bliss, and other similar ones.

If taking a dopamine supplement isn’t your forte, there are numerous brains supplements you could take that can improve your mood by helping the body naturally produce more dopamine. Most of these brain supplements will contain the following ingredients:

  • Probiotics – Fun fact: most of your body’s happiness hormones live in your gut. So, when you aren’t taking care of your stomach, your happiness level will naturally decrease! By adding probiotics to your diet, you will see an increase in your body and your brain’s ability to produce the hormones needed to improve your mood.
  • Curcumin/turmeric – Curcumin is an active ingredient in turmeric that has similar effects on the brain to taking pharmaceutical medicines such as Prozac. By taking a brain supplement with this as an active ingredient, you are likely to notice an increase in your mood.
  • Oregano oil – Having antioxidant and antibacterial properties, oregano oil has been shown to stop the deterioration of dopamine in the brain, leading to an overall increase in mood.
  • Vitamin D – Of course, vitamin D is the most well-known way to increase mood but sometimes getting some sun isn’t possible or even enough. Taking a brain supplement for your mood that contains vitamin D will make a significant difference.
  • Green Tea – Containing the ingredient L-theanine, green tea has been tested numerous times and has shown to help the brain produce the neurotransmitters it needs to produce dopamine naturally and consistently.

 

Brain Supplements For Concentration

Finding supplements that can improve concentration is similar to improving memory, but a few supplement additives make a significant difference in concentration specifically.

  • Resveratrol – An antioxidant found in naturally dark red foods such as cherries or grapes, resveratrol has been shown to improve concentration in numerous studies.
  • Caffeine – The effects of this additive will vary from person to person, but caffeine is known to improve one’s ability to concentrate. Caffeine naturally makes you more awake and alert, giving your brain the energy it needs to focus on the task at hand.
  • Ginkgo Biloba – A less well-known supplement but equally effective for better concentration is ginkgo biloba. This supplement naturally increases blood flow to the brain, making it easier to concentrate and focus your energy on something.
  • Creatine – Creatine is a supplement found primarily in meat, fish, and eggs but can be taken in supplement form and is ideal for anyone experiencing concentration issues who does not eat meat!

Numerous supplements on the market boast about how taking them can improve memory, mood, and cognition. Still, understanding the ingredients, you’re reading about and putting them into your body will make a huge difference.
