Best Supplements for Mental Function

Best Supplements for Mental Function

Supplements aren’t essential but they can greatly enhance performance and overall health. This guide will go over in no specific order what some of the best supplements are for mental function

Fish Oil

A top pick for the reduction of inflammation and joint pain, this well-researched ingredient can also enhance mental function.

What to look for:

  • You can get it in both capsule and liquid form. Make sure the brand you choose is low in heavy metals which are naturally found in all seafood.
  • Liquid fish oil must stay refrigerated, capsules vary.
  • The taste can be subtle depending on the brand and it should indicate that fish burps are not an issue.

Ashwagandha

Used since Ayurvedic practices for general wellness, this adaptogen can help reduce stress, improve mental function, boost mood, and reduce inflammation.

What to look for:

  • If you get the powdered form it can be mixed with water, tea, or a smoothie. The taste is neutral with a slightly chalky mouth feel.

Spirulina

Vitamin and nutrient rich algae that is useful for general wellness. High in antioxidants.

What to look for:

  • In powdered form the taste can be slightly fishy, but it can blend well in fruit smoothies.
  • Ensure that the brand tests for heavy metals, as they may be present in cheaper brands.
  • The high amounts of vitamins should be regulated, watch out for any potential symptoms

 

Maca

Aphrodisiac and general wellness herb that can be used to enhance energy without jitters. It’s rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

What to look for:

  • Offered in capsules and in powdered form.
  • The most common color is white, which is for general use. It’s claimed that black maca has better effects for men, and red is enhanced for female use. Studies on this are lacking at this time but from personal experience, black maca does have an additional libido enhancing effect.
  • Flavor is slightly chocolaty and blends well with smoothies.

Concerns and Usage

I’ve personally used all the above supplements in their purer form either in liquid or powder to great success. However, this may vary greatly depending on the user. It’s highly important to watch out for any possible side effects as introducing new ingredients may cause symptoms.

In another blog I’ll discuss a deep insight into the supplement industry which I uncovered after personal contact and inspection. Keep in mind this blog will never try to sell a supplement, the added effort should come from diligent research. I highly recommend unbiased ingredient review sites such as Examine.com, Drugs.com or government databases.
