Try these herbs for mental focus to boost brain health safely and effectively.
Boost brain health with safe and effective herbal remedies. The four herbs for mental focus covered in this video — chaste tree berry, saw palmetto, St. John’s wort and ginkgo — have stood the test of time and are proven to be reliable herbs for brain health. Chaste tree berry (for women) and saw palmetto (for men) are great herbs for naturally balancing hormones. To help raise your mood, take supplements of St. John’s wort, which is an herb best-known for helping treat symptoms related to mild and moderate depression. Finally, ginkgo is another great brain herb. Studies have shown that it is great for improving short-term memory loss, especially as we age. Be sure to talk with your health-care practitioner before incorporating any herbs into your health regimen.
