Q:I went to a drug store and this teen, was buying a drug called brain sharpener, when i asked she said that she normally buys when she studies, do these drugs really work?
More Answers to “brain food?“It seems rather impossible that a drug can specifically zero in on a “certain part” of the brain, or distract “other” parts of the brain in order to help your right side focus. Short of a tiny nano-computer controlled pill, that is highly unlikely. What these drugs do is inhibit certain neurotransmitters in the brain. To make it a little more clear, think of the brain as little electrical wires and in order for electricity to travel through these wires you need various transmitters that have different functions. Some transmitters work really quickly in sending electricity through the wires while others are really, really slow and sometimes block the electricity from travelling at all. What these brain-food pills do is temporarily paralyze these slow transmitters allowing only the quick transmitters to work. That’s why after a cup of coffee (or stimulant drugs ie-brainfood), most people feel alert and more capable of recollecting stored memories and information. However when the effects of the caffeine or drug wear off, a person feels more tired and worn out and usually has a “crash” from being “overworked”. So these drugs/stimulants will work to help you focus short term, but remember just like caffeine, they can become addictive and eventually the more you take, the higher doses you will need for it to feel effective. Once in a while can be very helpful, but make sure you are aware of side effects and that you get plenty of rest once the effects have worn off. And never, EVER, use them to keep yourself from sleeping. It is very dangerous to do so.
NO!eat fresh veg’s and fruits!athena!
The three best things for this that i have found and in order by preference: Neuro PS (phosphatydil Serine), Glutamine (crosses blood brain barrier) & alpha lipoic acid. Gingko is okay too but it takes at least six weeks to get the full affect and even then, it is not ooohh ahhh. However, many people can tell a difference with Neuro PS within 24-48 hours of taking it. It is a bit pricey though.
This drugs are a rip-off they just keep you more alert like caffeine.
Doubt it. just a pawn in the chess game called life.
It contains Ginkgo when seems to be the latest rage.What It Is Used ForGinkgo seeds have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, and cooked seeds are occasionally eaten. More recently, ginkgo leaf extract has been used to treat a variety of ailments and conditions, including asthma, bronchitis, fatigue, and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Today, people use ginkgo leaf extracts hoping to improve memory; to treat or help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia; to decrease intermittent claudication (leg pain caused by narrowing arteries); and to treat sexual dysfunction, multiple sclerosis, tinnitus, and other health conditions. If not, you can resort to cannibalism.
not sure about all your answers but eat lots of tree nuts Source(s):does not hurt only helpful

Nope, i tried them. Those drugs are just stimulants for the brain, meaning all they do is distract the other parts of the brain and leave open the right side which helps you to focus more. They give me a terrible headache though! Just eat fish thats a good brain food.
Stick with nature! Man made products can not do what nature can. Try flax seed or omega 3 resources!!
its probably just a multi-vitamin with a brand name (and price) for marketing to desperate people.
