concentrated form as a nootropic, with studies showing that it improves memory and focus, without putting the body under stress or causing jitters. L-theanine has been shown to increase the alpha-waves in the brain, which is the state that encourages creativity, deep concentration and lateral thinking. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) Derived from coconut oil, medium-chain triglycerides are a must-have in any brain-boosting diet. They have been shown to reduce the ageing process in the brain, and to reduce ‘brain fog’ and increase speed of recall and response to stimuli. This is largely due to MCTs’ beneficial effects on the digestive system, which is closely linked to cognition and mood. N-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC) This is an important amino acid, which the body requires to make glutathione, an antioxidant that is needed for a wide range of metabolic functions to occur correctly. It plays a specific role in liver detoxification and in simultaneously increasing the brain neurotransmitter glutamate and reducing toxic inflammation that damages brain cells and tissue.

Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) Another adaptogenic herb, research shows that rhodiola not only boosts mood and mental stamina and promotes calm in everyday life, but it is also especially effective in preventing burnout and anxiety in people who are in excessively stressful situations, such as students taking final exams. It also boosts alertness, attention, and motor function.
