This study reviews how nootropic herbs, including
(sweetflag), and herbs from the Lamiaceae (mint) family with a focus on
(rosemary) and various species of
(sage), can help those with attention-deficient/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
The authors note that even if these herbs are not as potent as amphetamines, they are clearly safer and have a definite role in a holistic treatment protocol for ADHD. Ideally one of the better-studied nootropics would be combined with one of the Lamiaceae family nootropics and other less well-confirmed nootropics to create an individualized formula for each ADHD patient, according to the study.
