• Herbal Nootropics: Botanicals for Enhancing Memory, Focus and Concentration

Speaker: David Winston. The word nootropic describes substances that enhance cognitive function. Many pharmaceutical medications used as nootropics have serious adverse effects and are inappropriate for self-medication. Nutritional supplements are safer, but the research is sparse or inconclusive. The safest and most effective nootropics come from the plant kingdom and there is a wealth of traditional knowledge and clinical research documenting the benefits of these powerful yet gentle herbs. In this presentation we discuss nootropic formulas and how they can be a useful way to reduce age-related memory decline, stress and cortisol-induced cognitive dysfunction and help to speed healing of head trauma injuries.
