Modern life in the most advanced countries is often very stressful, it implies a continuous commitment to competitiveness in every sector of life, starting from work.

Being efficient and productive is a difficult demand to meet all the time, keeping up is not easy.

Then there are periods of psychophysical, work, emotional stress, or intense study, you need help to be more cognitively performing and focused, or of greater mental brilliance and reactivity.

There are a range of natural substances that have a high adaptogenic-nootropic Energy, substances that have always been recognized: Bacopa Monnieri, Panax Ginseng and Ginko Biloba.

From the expertly calibrated pool of these elements, it is possible to obtain "adaptogenic" food supplements with marked characteristics and elements that make it equally definable as "nootropic".

The Bacopa Monnieri is considered by many experts as the best natural substance nootropic

known on the market, whose benefits are already evident from Ayurvedic Medicine as a powerful support tonic for phases of particular psychophysical stress, capable of reducing states of anxiety, improving mood, memory and reaction times, thanks to its rebalancing effect on neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine. Clinical research says that its effects begin to manifest after a few days and with chronic use, from 4 to 12 weeks, improvements in thought processing times, reaction and learning skills are evident, as well as greater clarity and feeling of calm.

The Ginseng is one of the most popular medicinal herbs in the world, handed down from the

ancient Oriental or North American medicines for centuries, very rich in bioactive substances, where they stand out among all the "ginsenosides". Extensive clinical research has reported its effectiveness as one of the main adaptogens and "anti-stress" substances that improve cognitive capacity, memory, counteract fatigue, circulation, digestion, acting as an immunomodulatory, antioxidant, and recently evidence as a support in menopause or erectile dysfunction. But among the many virtues of Ginseng, as we find it today as an important natural nootropic element, as it improves the body's ability to deal with the phases of physical and psychological stress, giving it more energy and reducing adrenergic fatigue. Powerful neuroprotector against dopamine.

The Ginko Biloba is a medicinal plant whose presence on Earth dates back millennia, whose

use in Traditional Chinese Medicine dating back to 2800 BC, you can find it already recommended for asthma, cough, vascular disorders, and as a tonic to contrast aging. Today well known in the world of nutraceuticals, it is considered for the rebalancing of neurotransmitters, to slow down the degeneration of brain cells, to improve cerebral circulation thus providing a greater flow of oxygen and glucose available to neurons. Ginko Biloba is one of the most suitable natural substances to stimulate learning, memory, and cognitive abilities in general. Promotes the increase of dopamine in the brain, reducing anxiety and improving motivation.
