Which Natural Health Supplements Do Doctors Recommend to Boost Your Productivity?

The scientific term for any substance that enhances cognition, memory, and facilitates learning is "nootropic." While certain drugs fall under the nootropic definition, there are also natural health supplements that have received wide support in the alternative medicine community and are popular with consumers.

Although there is no such thing as "productivity in a jar," the following supplements are recommended to boost brainpower, help regulate mood and increase productivity levels:

Exciting Discovery: Ancient Herb Offers Natural Thyroid Support

1. Bacopa Monnieri: This herb has been used in alternative medicine to enhance cognition, improve mental focus and "optimize brain power." According to Natural News, "bacopa can noticeably improve cognitive function and mental performance. A study presented in 1996 at the International Brain Research Conference, for instance, demonstrated that a regular consumption of bacopa reduced the time we needed to learn new tasks by almost 50 percent!"

2. Picamilon:
This is a natural health supplement that is created by combining niacin with the neurotransmitter gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA). According to Brain Tropic, Picmalion "works wonders with the users' concentration, attention, cognition, motivation, intelligence, planning and memory. Picamilon can even reduce impulsiveness of actions. It can therefore be said that Picamilon positively affects all functions of the brain."

3. Rhodiola Rosea:
According to Life Extension Magazine, "Soviet scientists have long known that this native herb can boost energy and treat mental fatigue, along with other conditions." Rhodiola Rosea is exceptionally beneficial because it provides both "cognitive stimulation" and "emotional calming," says Dr. Richard Brown of Columbia University.

4. Ginkgo biloba: According to Be Brain Fit, this natural health supplement "is traditionally used for a variety of brain-related problems — poor concentration, forgetfulness, headaches, fatigue, mental confusion, depression, and anxiety." All of these symptoms can contribute to a low productivity level and ginkgo biloba has become one of the most common supplements consumers use for brain health.

5. Ashwaghandha: This super herb has been recommended to reduce stress and increase endurance and it is often referred to as the ginseng of Ayurveda medicine for its rejuvenating abilities. According to Livestrong, "ashwaghanda has anti-anxiety, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-arthritic properties that may be effective in reducing stress caused by physical and emotional fatigue; increasing mental alertness, focus and concentration; relieving nervous tension and anxiety; invigorating the body; decreasing inflammation and balancing out and leveling mood swings."
