The Best Vitamins For Brain Health & Concentration

Supplements for brain health

Last Updated: 30/1/2024

The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. As the central command centre, the brain is responsible for a whole host of processes.

As well as automatic actions such as breathing and digestion, the brain controls more complication functions including memory, concentration and speech.

Nutritional deficiencies can have negative implications for brain health, making what we eat a top priority for general health and wellbeing.

The Best Supplements For Brain Health & Concentration

Concentration is a vital function of the brain. Resisting distraction and focusing on the task at hand is a crucial skill, especially while at work.

However, many of us can relate to the feeling of having “too many tabs open” in our brains, where we have an overwhelming number of thoughts side-tracking us from this task.

So, how can we improve our concentration and overall brain health? Alongside getting enough sleep, taking part in physical and mental exercise and reducing stress, nutrition can play a key role in supporting brain function.

Here are our top 4 supplements to improve brain health and concentration:

Energy Capsules

Our busy lifestyles often leave us reaching for caffeine to keep us focused and performing our best. However, long-term caffeine intake has been associated with increased risk of headaches, insomnia and anxiety.

These Energy Capsules provide you with a natural energy boost. With a blend of 16 energising vitamins and minerals, this convenient capsule contributes to normal mental and cognitive performance.

Other benefits include supporting energy levels naturally and a reduction in tiredness and fatigue.

Concentration Capsules

Myvitamins Concentration Capsules contain an innovative blend of vitamins and minerals, expertly blended to support brain function. These vegan- friendly capsules are formulated with a range of B-vitamins, zinc, iron and magnesium.

With research suggesting that only 17% of UK adults get their full eight hours of sleep per night, many of us live day-to-day experiencing bouts of tiredness and low energy.

Alongside general distractions associated with our busy lives, where we spend up to 47% of every waking hour “mind wandering”, tiredness is a major contributor to reduced concentration.

Myvitamins Concentration Capsules aim to fight this, helping to support mental performance from within.

Magnesium

Magnesium, an essential nutrient, promotes a wide variety of functions within the body. It is estimated that around 1 in 10 adults in the UK have inadequate intake of this mineral.

Sufficient magnesium consumption can reduce fatigue, maintain energy levels and support normal psychological function. Magnesium can also help to relax the muscles and aid a restful sleep, leading to improved focus throughout the day.

Vitamin B

Alongside benefits for hair, skin and nail health, B vitamins contribute to a variety of brain processes and functions.

For example, vitamin B2 reduces tiredness, biotin boosts energy levels, and vitamins B3 and B12 support psychological function.

While B-vitamins are present in a variety of foods, around 6% of individuals under 60 years old are deficient in vitamin B12. Symptoms such as weakness, fatigue and confusion may hinder concentration and focus.

Supplementation with a B-vitamin complex may reduce this risk and promote healthy brain function.
