Get Sharp Today With Ginseng

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever just not felt very sharp? Have you been in a situation where you couldn't concentrate on the task at hand? Have you been at work and your mind just continues to wander? I have had plenty of times like that. You may be wondering what could be done to help this fuzzy feeling you get from time to time. Let's cover a few things that may help.

Increase your mental performance through a little supplementation. Increase your reaction time, your learning, and even your logic skills through a few simple tasks. You can help yourself easily by a handful of daily activities:

1. Eat better.
Start by eating the way you should. Eating better is by far the most important thing you can do to head in a healthy direction you are pursuing. How much you eat and what you eat can always affect the way you feel. Think about a time when you may have eaten a large candy bar that was full of sugar. Once the sugar rush wore off you were down and out. You were in that fuzzy feeling state. This isn't good to do all the time especially when we need to concentrate for long periods of time. Instead of eating that candy bar, try some almonds or cashews. Instead of eating French fries, try some green beans. Try eating a bowl of soup rather than a box of chicken nuggets. You could pack your lunch every morning with healthy fruits and vegetables before you go to work. This might help keep you on track of eating healthy. Shoot, you might save some money in the process.

2. Exercise
Increase your exercise. Don't be a couch potato. Get your blood flowing. Go for a brisk walk or a light jog. Do some pushups or sit-ups when you wake up in the morning. It has been proven that exercise reduces stress. It might clear your mind and even get you in better shape, who knows. I have found that exercise in the morning energizes the rest of my day. It gets me going, it allows me to mentally plan my day, and I am more effective and efficient the rest of the day. Wouldn't it be nice if you could increase your mental performance just by getting rid of that cloud of stress you might be carrying? You can. Grab a buddy and start exercising today.

3. Supplementation
Evidence shows that Ginseng can increase your mental performance when taken in doses of 200 - 400 milligrams a day. Ginseng has been used for over 2000 years by emperors and commoners. Many people have used it for reducing stress, strengthening the metabolism, and increasing vitality. People have had success with it by taking it in pill form or making tea from the dried root. There are many ways you can try Ginseng, it may get you out of the funk.

Ginseng has also been identified as a supplement that helps reduce blood sugar levels for people with type 2 diabetes and has been used to increase stamina, help the body protect against infections, and increase circulation. These uses all culminate to reducing stress and assisting the crystal clear thought we all desire.

There are many natural herbs that are grown and are used for health purposes. Check some of these out and see what you can use as a supplement with your diet.

Always consult your doctor before starting a supplementation program.
