Lack of concentration, attention and memory problems?
Do not panic ! There are natural remedies to help you boost your memory and concentrate more easily.
Here are some plants known for their neuro-stimulating properties.
Originally from China, Ginkgo is a plant used since the dawn of time to stimulate and maintain a good memory.
Indeed, Ginkgo leaf extracts are rich in flavonoids, with proven effects for treating mild to moderate brain deficits, memory loss and concentration disorders.
Well known in herbal medicine, mainly for its veinotonic, vasodilating and neuroprotective properties, ginkgo is recommended for students who wish to increase their intellectual performance during exam periods.
You can take it as an infusion and drink 3 cups a day, morning, noon and evening for 3 weeks.
You can also consume it regularly to maintain your memory. But be careful, don’t overdo it!
It is generally always recommended to ask your doctor for advice before taking anything.
Ginkgo is also used to reduce certain symptoms of hyperactivity.
The use of Ginkgo extract to treat people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD1 and 2) has proven its benefits with a significant reduction in symptoms related to this disorder.
Rhodiola or Tundra Ginseng
Rhodiola, also called tundra ginseng, is a plant native to Asia, recognized for its beneficial effects on concentration and cognitive functions.
Consumed for millennia for its stimulating action on memory and concentration, the root of Ginseng allows a considerable improvement in attention, learning and memorization capacities.
It promotes concentration and helps boost memory and intellectual tone.
Green tea contains theanine, an amino acid used to make acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter essential for learning functions and which facilitates the transmission of information.
Green tea helps improve cognitive functions and working memory, which functions to temporarily store and manipulate information.
Green tea also contains theine, an energizing substance that facilitates memorization and intellectual work.
Unlike caffeine, theine is released gradually. It has a much softer exciting action and a stimulating effect that acts over about 6 hours, compared to 3 hours for coffee!
You can drink about 5 cups of green tea a day.
Be careful, because of its tannins, green tea prevents the intestinal absorption of iron! It should therefore be drunk one to two hours before or after a meal.
Bacopa is a plant used in traditional Indian medicine for almost 3000 years.
The Indians consumed a lot of it to improve their intellectual performance.
Recognized for its positive effects in treating cognitive disorders and attention problems, Bacopa is recommended to boost memory and increase the ability to concentrate.
Foods rich in omega 3, vitamin B and iron
Healthy and balanced food plays an important role in the proper functioning of our brain.
Omega-3 fatty acids are good for memory and help strengthen the structure of neurons.
These fatty acids are present in fish eggs and fatty fish: salmon, mackerel, herring, etc.
Nuts, wheat bran, rapeseed oil, flaxseed oil, etc. are also preferred foods.
Charcuterie, cheeses, sauces, butter, poultry skin, etc. however, they should be avoided.
Vitamins B1, B6, B9 and B12 play an essential role in memorization.
Eggs, liver, offal, salmon, spinach, pistachios are also to be preferred.
It is strongly recommended to consume foods rich in iron such as red meats, green vegetables, quinoa and shellfish.
Iron’s role is to transport oxygen to the brain. Iron deficiency therefore affects intellectual performance.
