4. Bacopa

If you are looking for what is probably the most powerful memory improving herb known today, then Bacopa should be top on your list. There have been numerous studies done on this herb and most results show that bacopa has a powerful ability to improve both mental health and mental clarity.

Bacopa has been used in Ayurvedic medicine since ancient times to improve concentration, learning abilities, and memory. One study conducted in Australia involved 46 subjects between the ages of 18 and 60. Divided into two groups, one group received a placebo; the other group was given 300mg of bacopa every day. After a period of 12 weeks, scientists discovered that the subjects who were given bacopa had vastly improved memory, speed of information processing, and verbal learning abilities.

 

5. Peppermint

This common and popular herb stimulates the mind and has been shown in studies to improve learning abilities, creativity, and improve energy levels.

 

6. Blueberries

Not really an herb, but so powerful that it must be mentioned here. Current scientific studies found that blueberries contain powerful compounds that improve verbal comprehension, decision making, rezoning ability, cognitive function, and memory. Studies also show that consuming blueberries and their flavonoids regularly can help slow the decline of cognitive ability and offer protection from diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
