Do you ever feel lethargic or sleepy, or have trouble concentrating or remembering? Don’t fall into the trap of denying how you feel, or chalking it up to age. Consider whether nutrients may be involved. Something as simple as correcting a deficiency can make a world of difference in how you feel and think.
Some essential nutrients and other compounds are necessary for optimal energy and focus, and many others can also support these goals.* PatchAid Vitamin Patches, such as the Focus and Clarity Patch and Vitamin B12 Energy Plus Patch, can be worth considering. They’re easy to use, since you only have to stick them onto your skin without worrying about gastrointestinal side effects or nutrient interactions.
These are some top supplements for boosting energy and focus. Ask your healthcare provider which may be right for you.
Caffeine may be the most common supplement in the world for boosting energy and focus. Millions of Americans use it for waking up, staying alert during the day, and reducing sleepiness. If you find that you need more caffeine than the amount you can reasonably get from coffee, or you dislike coffee and caffeinated soda and tea, caffeine pills can be a source. Still, be aware that if you are sensitive or have too much, you can get side effects such as anxiety or trouble sleeping.
Do you find that green and black tea help you focus while feeling relaxed? Maybe it’s because they contain theanine. This compound could help support brain function while preventing excessive levels of anxiety.* The Focus and Clarity Patch by PatchAid has 10 mg of theanine.
How would you feel about staying healthy while you support energy and focus? Ginseng is an ancient Chinese herb that has been used to support several systems, including the brain, metabolism, and immune systems.* The Focus and Clarity Patch has 10 mg.
Ginkgo is another compound for brain and mood. It can help support focus and clarity while it helps keep stress at bay.* Longer term, ginkgo biloba supplements may help maintain normal brain function during aging.* The Focus and Clarity Patch has 100 mg of ginkgo biloba extract.
Don’t worry if you’re especially sensitive, or allergic, to caffeine. Ashwagandha is sometimes suggested as a substitute. It supports energy metabolism and focus, and it’s been used for thousands of years. It does affect blood sugar, so it’s best to talk to your doctor about it before using it. The Relax and Unwind Patch has ashwagandha.
Vitamin B12 is essential for the production of healthy red blood cells, which are necessary for getting oxygen to your body and preventing fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath. Vitamin B12 is also needed for normal nerve function and mood.* The Vitamin B12 Energy Patch has vitamin B12 and other B vitamins which are involved in metabolism and energy production.
When you want to maximize your energy and focus, one of the first things you need to check is your nutrition. Many of the top supplements for boosting energy and focus are available in PatchAid Patches, and they are easy to use. Just be sure to talk to your healthcare provider before taking any nutritional supplements, and if you have any concerns about your health.
