To perform at your optimum in any area of your life you need energy and clarity.

Of course, you need to sleep well and devise a regular routine but you also need to know that your mental performance is optimized to lead your body and mind to wherever it can go. And many people choose to use vitamins to boost and clear their brain’s capability to perform at the highest level. Although it’s always best to consult a medical doctor before taking any supplement, it’s good to know what’s on the market at any given time too.

So, here’s a list of 9 popular vitamins that claim will aid you on your quest to reach peak mental performance. Of course, these vitamins are not the only ones on the market but they’re as good a start as any into researching whether or not you`ll choose to take vitamins as an extra source of ingestion or not.

1. Natural Stacks Serotonin Brain Food Positive Mood Support promises to make you feel happier and more confident if you take its 60 vegetarian capsules.

It includes precursors and cofactors which will stimulate your body. By doing so, you`ll be able to produce more serotonin. Serotonin lifts a person’s mood and gives feelings of self-assurance, and wellbeing.

The product has a mix of minerals, herbs, and vitamins. By boosting your mood, Natural Stacks is said to boost confidence, produce more serotonin in your body, reduce anxiety and stress, and reduce cortical levels which means there’ll be less stress. They also claim to increase alertness, mental function, support sleep whilst also improving your memory!

2. Brain Smart Mood is an amino asset that is a mood enhancer. Similar to Natural Stacks, they aim to balance serotonin levels. As natural mood support, they deliver calm and a positive mental state once taken by the consumer.

The product contains the two most important neurotransmitters L- Tryptophan, and 5-HTP. They can also decrease stress and strengthen your brain to create GABA which alone, will decrease stress.

3. The Complete T-Booster is a leading supplement that attempts to support the maintenance of T-levels in your blood.

Its ingredients contain zinc, protodioscin, and d-aspartic. It contains nutrients and minerals that are vital which enable greater protein synthesis. And it does this because it has 150mg dose of zinc monomethionine which gives you a very healthy hit.

4. Brainsmart Focus aids you in supporting your concentration as it provides natural supplements that are nonaddictive and supports your concentration.

The product claims to increase oxygen flow to the brain by improving brain circulation within the central nervous system. The pre-frontal cortex of the brain has increased enzyme production as a result of taking Brainsmart Focus.

Brainsmart Focus aims to boost your cognitive performance as well as normalize your attention span and increase your concentration.

5. Ginkgo Biloba came before the dinosaurs. Ginkgo originates from the Chinese words ‘yin’ which means silver and ‘kuo’ which means fruit. The second part of the word biloba describes the shapes of the leaves. The product improves glucose metabolism to the cerebral part of the brain.

In doing so, it benefits memory problems. It improves circulation.

Lastly, it circulates and supports your brain.

By helping with focus, sharpness, and memory it keeps your brain up to its maximum focus.

As there are billions of communication reactions per second in your brain, neurotransmitters carry messages to support this communication and BrainStrong provides you with cholone which is an essential part of neurotransmission functioning. Healthy brain blood flow is also increased by using BrainStrong and this supports your healthy blood circulation.

7. Citicoline CDP Choline claims to improve focus through increasing your memory and cognitive decline.
