Top Supplements for Focus & Productivity

We all know the feeling of getting distracted while staring at a computer screen or working on a project. In a world full of email alerts, text notifications and meeting invites - it’s no wonder we’re having a hard time staying focused!

We’ve got a great list of helpful supplements to improve concentration ahead, but sometimes a few small changes to your daily activity can also help keep you focused. Start by getting enough sleep and sticking to a healthy diet with plenty of water. Exercising throughout the day keeps your blood flowing and can keep you alert. Plus, it can benefit your heart health!

Another easy way to remain focused is by being mindful of what’s distracting you. “Create an environment that is conducive to focus and concentration,” said Amy Sunderman, Director of Science and Innovation at Swanson. “This can be accomplished by turning off or placing technological devices out of sight and turning off their ringers, and setting aside time to dedicate to specific tasks. This can allow individuals the ability to ignore other distractions and focus on the task at hand.”

What if you’ve tried all of the above recommendations, and you’re still finding yourself distracted throughout the day? Everyone wants to perform at their best, and sometimes supplements are a great way to do so. “For healthy individuals, dietary supplements provide healthy options,” Sunderman said. “They can help support focus and concentration.”
