I wanted to share a supplement I found that I feel has helped cure brain fog. Of course, if you read my inaugural post, it could be just a coincidence, so I’m putting this out there to see what others think. I was experiencing extreme brain fog after some stressful life circumstances. Thinking it was tied to allergies, I took Claritin to no avail. I tried several other supplements to address this problem including choline and phosphatydilserine, but nothing seemed to be working. Until I came across this at the local asian supermarket:
I took three vials a day, which provided a whopping 7.2 grams of Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract and 1.5 grams of Red Panax Ginseng Root.
This is a liquid extract in a vial. The box comes with little straws and a plastic tool to puncture them. The other ingredients are honey, water and less than .05% alcohol.
In about three days, I noticed the brain fog was lifted and my mood improved. I know from experience that both Gingko and Ginseng boost dopamine levels. I was pleasantly surprised to find my thinking clear and my concentration improved.
I did some light research on this later and found the combination of ginseng and gingko has been studied pretty extensively. Check out: http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0ISW/is_2002_June/ai_86387585/ for some interesting studies.
This one is a keeper for me.
