7 Best Eco Supplements to Boost Energy and Focus
4 min read

Eco supplements are used by millions of people around the world to improve overall wellness or treat specific health conditions. This post will discuss 7 eco supplements that specifically boost energy and focus.

Let’s take a look at the 7 best supplements for keeping you on the ball and ready for whatever life throws at you!

CBD (Cannabidiol)

Now that hemp is legal in the USA, anyone can enjoy the benefits of CBD derived from hemp flower. CBD derived from hemp is non-intoxicating as it’s legally permitted to contain a maximum of only 0.3% THC (the intoxicating cannabinoid).

To improve focus and boost energy, CBD helps you get a better night’s sleep by balancing the body’s systems via the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). And when you sleep well, you’re firing on all cylinders!

Ashwagandha

The root of an evergreen shrub that grows in Africa and Asia, ashwagandha was not only found to reduce stress and levels of cortisol (the “stress hormone”), it was well tolerated by participants in this study. High cortisol levels cause insomnia, interfering with circadian rhythms (the sleep cycle). Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that helps the human body deal with stress.

Ashwagandha was also found to enhance physical endurance during exercise in studies like above. When stress and cortisol production are under control, your body can get the rest it needs to function optimally.

Rhodiola Rosea

Another adaptogen, Rhodiola rosea grows in high, cold elevations, including the Arctic. In a systematic review of 11 studies, researchers found that rhodiola reduced mental fatigue and enhanced physical performance. It has also been revealed as a phytoceutical (plant-based medication) alternative to Zoloft to treat depression. While it’s acknowledged that Rhodiola is not as effective as Zoloft, it provokes fewer side effects.

Kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa)

An herb that grows in the forested regions of Southeast Asia, Kratom is a somewhat controversial eco supplement but one which has proven itself as an energy booster and focus helper.

Red kratom specifically addresses low energy, due to its high mitragynine content. But mitragynine is also being shown to address high blood pressure and muscle pain. It’s hoped that the growing popularity of this supplement takes into account the need to source plant-derived eco supplements sustainably.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

CoQ10 is ubiquitous in the human body, meaning it inhabits every cell, especially in the heart, liver, and kidneys. This substance assists your body in converting food to energy. Over time, CoQ10 levels decline, resulting in reduced energy. This effect is more pronounced in people taking statin drugs or who suffer from type 2 diabetes, heart failure, or cancer. Your body also needs CoQ10 for cell repair and regeneration, so a supplement is in order after age 55.

Ginkgo Biloba

Native to China, ginkgo biloba is the last survivor of an ancient genus of plant. Specifically serving focus, the extract of this plant improves blood circulation, which in turn improves brain function. Many users of this supplement treat memory loss using this extract. A powerful antioxidant, ginkgo biloba prevents cell damage.

Ginseng

This root is found in cooler climates, from the USA to eastern Russia. There are 11 different varieties of ginseng, all of them adaptogens (like ashwagandha and Rhodiola rosea). But ginseng has been confirmed to improve both physical and intellectual function, including focus and energy.

Used for hundreds of years to treat a variety of health concerns, ginseng is now a popular supplement that is also being used in at least one pharmaceutical/phytoceutical hybrid preparation.

Talk to Your Doctor

Before proceeding with any eco supplement regime, check in with your primary caregiver. Your doctor will know if there are any potential contraindications (drug reactions) to watch out for. While the eco supplements listed above have distinct benefits, your doctor will know if they pair well with any medications you’re already taking.

Working with your doctor, you’ll find that eco supplements add another tool to your healthcare toolkit, rooted in the power of the natural world.
