The Power of Mood-Boosting Herbs for Cognitive Health 

For centuries, the power of herbal medicines has been utilised by many different cultures worldwide to treat all kinds of illnesses. From allergies to pain-related conditions to fatigue, all these have been treated with various herbs that can be found in nature. Even in the modern age, many people still use these types of medicine as herb supplements to manage and heal many different conditions.  Among its health uses, mood-boosting herbs are also used for cognitive enhancement; for example, our CALM nootropic is made with different natural herbs to create a relaxed mindset to address mood and relaxation tendencies. Let’s break down some of the herbal ingredients found in our nootropics and see how each contributes to enhancing your mood. 

Ashwagandha root 

Ashwagandha is a shrub that is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is frequently found in Asia and Africa and is used as an adaptogen - a substance that helps you deal with stress and mild anxiety. Beyond that, Ashwagandha is also used for improving fertility and libido, cardiorespiratory endurance, muscle health, and sleep quality. 


Passion flowers (Passiflora incarnata) are used to improve sleep. These flowers typically grow in the USA, as well as in Central and South America. They are known for their contributions to improved sleep and memory, with many studies determining their potential in treating related conditions such as anxiety, sleep disorders, heart rhythm, and more. It also absorbs gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which can be used for stress, anxiety, and sleep issues. 


Saffron is a spice known for its antioxidising properties. It has a variety of health benefits, including its potential in treating mood and depressive disorders. It has also shown potential in amplifying serotonin, which is one of the four happy hormones and is responsible for mood, sleep, and appetite regulation. Beyond that, saffron has also been used alongside cancer treatments, and also aids in weight loss and lowering blood sugar. 

Holy basil

Like Ashwagandha, holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) is also used in Ayurvedic medicine. This Indian plant can help manage pain and blood sugar and acts as an antioxidant. These properties are why holy basil is sometimes used to treat diabetes and high cholesterol. Studies have also shown holy basil’s potential to enhance our cognition and help us alleviate stress.  These herbal mood lifters are all ingredients within CALM and have contributed to CALM becoming our top mood-enhancing supplement. Learn all about the science of this mood-enhancing herb supplement and see just how its ingredients make up this effective nootropic stack for stress and mild anxiety. 

Even with constant innovations occurring within the medicinal field, herbal medicine is still as popular as ever and is certainly not going anywhere. Experience how powerful herbal medicine is for your cognitive health by trying our nootropic collection at Yootropics™!
