Is There a Natural Alternative to Adderall?

The use of nootropics still causes controversy, although many of them are prescribed as conventional therapies for certain diseases.

Adderall is undoubtedly one of the medicines with widespread use. However, no one can deny the existence of contraindications, as with all pharmaceutical products.

More about nootropics check on the source below:

If Adderall is used with a prescription, a patient is under the supervision of an expert. In healthy people, taking this medication on their own as a cognitive enhancer can be troublesome. If people take nootropics whenever they need mental stimulus and energy boost, there is a risk of side effects that can endanger health.

That is the reason why many users wonder if there is a natural alternative to this nootropic. Adderall is highly effective for increasing concentration and learning capacity, reducing anxiety, and maintaining alertness. But what makes it undesirable is the high percentage of amphetamines in it, which are known for their psychoactive properties.

Natural Adderall Alternatives for ADHD

Adderall has been used as a successful treatment for attention deficit disorder for decades. However, as this disease is common in kids, medicine has begun to consider the use of psychostimulants in the youngest patients. It is clear why there are numerous reasons against their use. 

Essential oils are not a substitute for conventional drugs, just a supplement to the therapy. Their compounds are believed to help ADHD, along with behavioral therapy. They have a calming or relaxing effect, which will have a positive impact on mood swings in ADHD patients.

Some essential oils improve mood through the endocrine or the central nervous system. Stress, anxiety, and depression can be reduced by inhaling ylang-ylang, lavender, and cedar essences. With one of those handy aromatherapy pens, ADHD patients always to have their ‘dose’ on hand.

Treating Autism

Adderall has proven to be a useful means of treating social anxiety. Given that this form of behavior is one of the main symptoms of autism, it is logical to use this psychostimulant as a kind of therapy. But no matter how useful it is, it’s still a psychoactive drug. This type of stimulants is not desirable for prolonged use, especially in kids.

There are different opinions about autism. Some claim it’s a severe developmental disorder, others that it’s fictional. However, the fact is that there are hyperactive people, especially children, who have problems with staying focused, learning abilities, and communicating with others.

Essential oils have a relaxing effect on those who inhale or rub them on the skin. The pleasant aromas of lavender, mint, and chamomile can calm a nervous and distracted person. They are especially beneficial for the kids by applying these oils directly on their skin. Because of the body heat, these essences will evaporate, so your youngster will be surrounded by a soothing, pleasant aroma all day.

Get diffusers to keep in rooms where a patient diagnosed with autism is staying. You can pour essential oils of cedarwood, sandalwood, or citruses in it (kids especially love mandarins). Musky aromas reduce negative feelings and anxiety while improving focus.

Essential Oils for Boosting Cognitive Abilities

Natural nootropics may not be as potent as synthetic, but they are not harmful to health, which should be a priority. Essential oils do not belong to the nootropic class, but may instead be called a natural aid for learning and maintaining focus. Tips on how to rais learning productivity, find here.

Sometimes we all lose concentration after a few hours of work or study. If we have tight deadlines or are in the middle of the exam season, it’s probably difficult to keep our minds sharp. What can naturally refresh our brain are the essences of rosemary, eucalyptus, mint, and orange. 

Citrus aromas raise energy levels, while rosemary and eucalyptus contain beneficial cineole, which has antioxidant effects. Thus, these oils liberate the nervous system from toxins and free radicals, thereby improving its function. Because of the strong aroma, these are not recommended for kids, while citrus aromas are safe for everyone.

Although essential oils are a natural product, it is a good idea to inquire about their use by experts. If you are taking additional therapy, be sure to tell your doctor about any alternative treatments you plan to start with.
