Herbs that can be used As a stimulant

What are stimulants?

Stimulants are substances that enhance the activity of the central nervous system. They facilitate the functions of monoamine neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine) in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. They make the person feel more motivated, energized, alert, awake, and confident. Stimulants can also work for a particular organ system to awake its physiological functioning, including appetite stimulants and sexual drive stimulants.

Amphetamine, the very first synthetic stimulant, was isolated in 1887 and prescribed for fatigue, narcolepsy, and depression. But its fervent availability led to its misuse and its OTC use got banned in 1957. Naturally, the most commonly used stimulants are nicotine and caffeine.
