Can anyone tell me which herbs are helpful for improving memory, concentration and all other cognitive functions?

If for instance you have lost the ability to absorb Vitamin B12 you could take lots of vitamins and herbs by mouth and not fix the problem.

Too much vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) can lead to agitation and excessive activation, which can disrupt. ...Read more
