Strengthening mental activity in trading - a pharmacist's review

Strengthening mental activity in trading - a pharmacist's review

By Lucasgaio | Cryptoscience | 19 Jul 2021

About a year ago I wrote an interesting article on how to strengthen concentration and mental activity in people who perform activities that require high concentration. After some time it was necessary to revise this article to add something new and more effective.

Trading, as we know, is a job that involves the use of time and memory skills, as well as a good dose of attention. [...] All this for the human being who deals with trading is a source of stress.

This was what I wrote in the premise of that article and it is something that has remained unchanged. Students, traders and people who use their memory and cognitive abilities for work are subject to significant mental stress. This is why it is so important to control that stress and what comes with it, to keep a healthy and flexible mind. Thanks to this, the performance will improve instead of reducing and you will remain more relaxed.

Before starting to see the various products, I remind you that this should not be understood as a tip for using any substance. Even if what you read was written by a pharmacist, always be wary of what you find on the internet, do not do your own research but go to a professional in the flesh and listen to his opinion. This article should only be a thoughtful point.


Let's now look at the old and new supplements that can help with this.

Ginkgo Biloba, Vitamins B & Caffeine

Already seen previously and certainly the most valid. These are three nitrients which, once taken, exert their action mainly at the level of the central nervous system. But be careful that as regards Ginkgo and B vitamins, a constant period of intake (at least 30 days) is required to see the effects, while for the caffeine contained in coffee you must never exceed in doses and possibly not take it continuously.
The effect of Ginkgo Biloba consists in improving microcirculation, thus increasing the blood flow that reaches the brain, resulting in greater availability of oxygen and nutrients for neuronal cells. Vitamins B, especially B12, have a strong power on the central nervous system and sometimes act as neuro-protective. Finally, the caffeine that I have already jokingly referred to as the best friend of many. It is a molecule contained in coffee and tea, but also in Guaranà. It prevents sleep, increases concentration for a short time but makes you lose B vitamins especially when you take too much. Also be careful because it can cause tachycardia.



Fish oil contains, as we know, fatty acids of the Omega-3, 6 and 9 family. The benefits that these nutrients bring to the human body at all ages are infinite, but for our purpose we consider the intake of at least 2 grams of Omega-3 to get about 500mg of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). DHA is the main fatty acid of phospholipids in the brain and retina and its additive intake enhances brain activity and prevents its decay.



The brain is only vulnerable to oxidative damage due to its high metabolic rate and high levels of polyunsaturated lipids. Consequently, antioxidants are commonly used in the treatment and prevention of various forms of brain damage. This is why it is always important to integrate vitamins A, C and E and nutrients such as Zinc, Selenium and Astaxanthin.


Val-Bia-Pas (Valerian, Hawthorn and Passionflower)

In busy times, it is also sometimes important to know how to stay calm and not act in a hurry. Haste, in fact, sometimes leads us to take actions that we later regret. For those who are more prone to anxiety or panic, Valerian, Hawthorn or Passionflower extracts are very useful for relaxing and thinking with a cool head. But be careful not to take too many or they will make you fall asleep.


I hope these little tips can be useful, remember that they are not always valid and for everyone but everyone responds in a subjective way.
