In brief: NO!!

There are unfounded and unscientific claims for a number of substances.
Any possible effect for most of them can be explained as placebo effect!

Although not thought of as a drug by most people, caffeine has been shown to increase attention and concentration in people using it.
Unfortunately, tolerance to this effect can develop, so taking a "coffee holiday" for a while can restore this beneficial effect.
