I have brain fog. My head is cloudy. I can’t think straight.
There are many different ways to describe the lack of mental clarity that can hit at any time of the day, making it difficult to focus and get things done. For some, this happens upon waking and then slowly disappears as the body starts to wake up. For others, this presents as a “midday slump” where our energy levels and productivity start to decrease after lunchtime. In either case, a jolt of caffeine from a good cup of coffee can always help due to caffeine’s ability to enhance energy, alertness, and mood – making it an ideal and natural brain health supplement to help increase your ability to focus*.
But, did you know that there are other plant-based brain health supplements that can naturally support healthy brain function? In this blog post, we will explore some of the most popular types of natural brain health supplements and how you can get more every day just by upgrading your coffee routine!
What are Brain Health Supplements?
When it comes to maintaining good brain function, what we put in our body matters. Eating certain foods like fresh vegetables and omega-3 rich fish, and avoiding others such as heavily processed treats, may slow brain aging. But, as we know all too well, everything is easier said than done when it comes to completely overhauling your diet to focus on one thing such as brain function.
Enter brain health supplements. Just as the term implies, these are meant to supplement your existing diet with substances that may help support cognitive function by doing any of the following:
• Promote healthy memory
• Support cognition or thinking abilities
• Promote alertness or reduce sleepiness
• Balance fluctuating mood swings*
Plants as Brain Health Supplements
While some brain health supplements are well known, like fish oils, resveratrol, and caffeine, others are just starting to get their moment in the spotlight due to increasing interest in natural, plant-based wellness. Among these are two of our favorites: Bacopa Herb and Ashwagandha Root.
Bacopa herb has been used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to rejuvenate the mind, so you get a fresh feeling of clarity with every cup.
Common in Indian traditional medicine, ashwagandha root fosters mental calm and supports the immune system by helping the body respond to stress*.
